Re: No Randomness Mod Requested

Well, first of all, I'm strictly against this because that's what makes Wesnoth fun to play for me. I don't want to play chess - I want something that's realistic and resembles real-life situations. When you command an army, you have a responsibility for your units - and you know that there are risk...

Re: Soul Crystals: Leader Revival

Really don't like the idea at all. Leader revival could make sense in some cases like for instance SXC where that's the only unit you're playing with, though. However, in a normal MP scenario, you'd lose all the strategic elements such as leadership and instead have one "super unit". Your proposal a...

Colosseum - is this really impossible?

Well, I'm fairly pissed at the moment :( What's wrong with people if you ask about difficulty when hosting a Colosseum game, nobody asks to make it easy, there are some pro and some senior votes, so I choose senior - and all kinds of crazy things happen. Tried titles like "PRO MODE" and "EXPERTS ONL...

So what should you do when an OOS error happens in-game?

Re: doubt about MP campaing

Regarding quitters, this can happen to you in any MP scenario. IMO, the risk of people quitting can actually be much lower in a MP campaign such as World Conquest if you clearly communicate things. Make sure people understand that a scenario could take several hours, that it requires cooperative tea...

Re: World Conquest: Surviving the Nightmare

Do you think it's a good idea to add Orcish Assassin to your recruit list when playing Elves (or Loyalists) or is this only something that should be used when playing Orcs?

Re: Out of Sync Error was specially generated by players...

I've seen this twice tonight in a Deep Shrine game that I hosted, both times from the same guy and on one of the very first turns. Does this mean that the guy attempted to cheat (in a cooperative survival game, wtf.!) or is it more likely that it's some kind of a bug?

Is there anything which combines both of these? I usually host games as Ageless because almost everyone has it installed and it allows people to choose a faction from either Era of Myths or Era of Magic.

Re: Newbie question

Age of Heroes is basically the same as Default, but you can recruit lvl 2 units. But you could also get the same units by leveling them. Same for Ageless Heroes. Heroes make some survival games easier because you start with stronger units, but IMO it doesn't make much sense in normal 1v1 or 2v2 game...

Re: Favorite / least favorite mainline race

I don't play MP, so I'm speaking SP here. Favorite mainline race would probably be Humans, simply because the diversity and breadth of unit types. But an honorable mention should go out to Elves. The Elves race doesn't have the breadth of the Humans, but it certainly has the depth with fighters, he...

Re: Any up to date video replays? (MP)

I'd also be interested in seeing some replays of some of the survival games - especially Scrolling Survival and Isar's Blasphemy. And a replay of someone playing Elves/Sylvans against Drakes would be awesome!

Re: Units you dread fighting against

In general, most of the northerners are really rotten to see. Cheap, bulky units that just so happen to recover every turn? Or maybe you'd prefer to be poisoned and then surrounded by useless goblins? From other factions it's not quite so bad, but still. Great, a dwarven guardsman has advanced over...

Re: Scenario 22: Face of the Enemy

Just finished this campaign on Medium, 1.10.4. - and while this campaign as a whole was one of the best that I ever played, I was very disappointed by the last three scenarios. Starting with Prince of Wesnoth, it went downhill - and this ending, seriously ??? I actually restarted the scenario from t...

Delfador's Memories - Terror at the Ford

Hi, I recently abandoned the iPad app and started playing Deflador's Memories on medium with 1.11.0 on Windows. Finally made it into Elven Territory and now I'm wondering which units I should aim for. One of my "problems" is that I'm having a ton of gold, like really a ton of gold, so I'm starting t...
