Re: gold problem in LoW -- Breaking the Siege

Starting with 100 gold (after ending with -970 gold after the Human Alliance), I sailed through Breaking the Siege on hard on the first attempt, with no casualties and leveling a rider to outrider, ending with 510 gold. [Edit: I mean going into the next scenario with 510 gold, after early finish bon...

Re: LOW - The Human Alliance

I did it. After several more failures, I finally beat The Human Alliance on hard with no cheats (i.e., no turn reloads) at any time here or earlier in the campaign, on version 1.8.2. Again I totally ignored the northern front. Again I sent some units into the middle of the plain to try to draw some ...

Re: Scenario Review: LoW 3 - Ka'lian under Attack

I'll admit it here - I'm an idiot. I was wondering how you did all this recruiting when you only get 100 gold. I went back and looked at my replay to double check that amount and just noticed Kal'lian controlled all the villages - I assumed the orcs did and never noticed as I was playing I was pili...

How do you lure leaders out of their keeps?

When you approach a fortress, sometimes the leader dashes out at you, sometimes not. How can you entice an enemy leader to leave his recruiting spot? What factors go into his decision to stay or go? Gold available? Value of target unit? Ease of killing target unit? Lack of any other units to go for ...

Re: Scenario Review: LoW 3 - Ka'lian under Attack

(1) What difficulty levels and what version of Wesnoth have you played the scenario on? 1.8.2; hardest (2) How difficult did you find the scenario? (1-10) 6 (compared to the first 2 levels it was a piece of cake :lol2: ) In the first few turns, did you break out or make a stand in the fortress? If ...

Re: LOW - The Human Alliance

Hmmm, when I try to load this (1.8.2 on a Mac), I get a "The file you have tried to load is corrupt" error. (I have successfully downloaded other replays.) It's a Wesnoth bug with filenames... I think if there is a space in the filename, it won't work. If you rename the file, it will work. Or you c...

Re: LOW - The Human Alliance

If you don't mind, post a replay. I'm curious to see how this played out (and also how much harder 'hard' is from 'medium'). Replay attached. This is for 1.8.2. You'll want to click "skip animation", or it will take forever, and then you'll probably want to click for one turn at a time and scroll a...

Re: Scenario Review: LoW 14 - Human Alliance

Update... I won on hard (but with a cheat of reloading one turn). The basic gist is that I did not send even one unit to slow down the north and just focused on moving all my leaders to the human leader's fortress and making a stand there, since the objective is just to survive. Full details in the ...

Re: LOW - The Human Alliance

Update... I succeeded in beating The Human Alliance on hard. (However, I cheated with one reloaded turn.) First I replayed the previous scenario with the goal of obtaining more gold and a stalward, and I succeeded, but only 511 gold (compared to 472 before.) It did not seem like a game changer. So, ...

Re: Problems with LOW-Hostile Mountains

I think the problems with the trolls (not) stepping on dwarven land have been resolved by 1.8.1. At least, the trolls were always eager to step in dwarven land in my experience. It may be because I learned to avoid grabbing southern villages, and instead just take the northern tip of the island. Thi...

LOW - The Human Alliance

Situation... I'm playing on hard under 1.8.2 with 472 starting gold. Counting the starting forces, I have available 6 Shydes, 3 Avengers, 3 Enchantresses, 1 Dwarvish Dragonguard, 1 Outrider, 2 ready-to-level Heros, and a selection of level 2 units. My Marshalls are still MIA after the Battle of Ka'l...
