Re: Bad habits against the AI? (moved)

...the fact that the AI only attacks, a strategic failing... I've had many experiences where the AI did not attack, but rather stayed on favorable terrain. It doesn't happen often, but it has happened-- usually when I'm very close to victory. Not saying that the AI is like a human player in this re...

Re: Level up Konrad in HttT Scenario 1

I accept the challenge! Er, wait! Which part of the challenge am I accepting? Just beating the level on hard or advancing Konrad as well? I suppose the latter. ;) Out of curiosity, which path do you recommend? The obvious and more dangerous path due north or the non-path that goes by Chantal? The n...

Re: Ok, this may be stupid but what if you want to keep unit

A big part of playing well in Wesnoth is stopping and thinking before you do your turn. There are so many things that you have to take into consideration-- time of day, terrain, ZOC, hitpoints, and-- this is a big one-- what units the enemy can reach during a counterattack. When I first downloaded t...

Re: Level up Konrad in HttT Scenario 1

] On turn 10 you killed the northwestern orc with Konrad while he could have killed Konrad with a single of his three hits in retaliation...now forbid yourself to saveload and risk doing that...no... I noticed that too. Definitely more than just a bit of luck! I would love to have a shaman leveled ...

Re: Level up Konrad in HttT Scenario 1

With a bit of luck... Just did it on normal difficulty, 1.9.2 version of Wesnoth. Replay: HttT-The_Elves_Besieged_replay.gz Awesome, I'll watch it when the baby goes to sleep. :whistle: As things stand, I managed to get Konrad about 3 XP points away from level 2, so it wasn't too hard leveling up i...

Re: Level up Konrad in HttT Scenario 1

Thanks for the tip. I was using elves to chip away at orcs so that Konrad could finish them, but this tactic always left me being overrun. :annoyed:

I'll go see what I can do with Delfador...

Level up Konrad in HttT Scenario 1

I recently read a post where someone stated that they use the first scenario of HttT to level-up Konrad. I've given this a shot several times, but have been unsuccessful. Between the large amount of orcs thrown at me and the limited turns, I can't figure out how to maneuver Konrad to achieve a level...

Re: Common Sense Compendium: Now with more General Advice

Some simple tips, but they can be real life-savers: Before you begin a scenario, look at the map. If you take into consideration the terrain, and the strengths of the opposing faction, you can make an educated guess as to where the enemy units will flow. And using this, you can select favorable loca...

Re: HttT Bay of Pearls-- a better way to win?

Leveling up units is turning out to be harder than I expected. I have one level 2 elvish scout and that's it. All my horsemen and druids keep getting killed. :(

Re: HttT Bay of Pearls-- a better way to win?

Thank you all for the tips!

I will jump back a few scenarios and try to obtain more level 2 units, and then modify my land strategy as suggested.

HttT Bay of Pearls-- a better way to win?

I'm in a bit of a sticky situation here. I have completed the Bay of Pearls scenario by killing both Orc warlords. I did this after consistently having my arse handed to me by the enemy's land forces. This runs contrary to what I have read here on the forums; the general consensus seems to be that t...
