Hi! I've been playing Wesnoth since - hmmm... 2012, 2013? I registered here because I wanted to play Wesnoth 1.14 and also because I think the game is really cool because of the units and mechanics - although the RNG screws me over sometimes. If there's anyone else here who's been screwed over by RNG (and if you play this game, you have been), I just want to let you know that 100% of the community has been too.

Hello, i am Zap-Zarap and i started playing Wesnoth around 2006 with Version 0.9.0, though in that times there was already a newer version available, but not on Debian main distro, which was, what i was using then.
I always thought it was a shame, that the cost of the Undead's bat got risen to 13 gold from 0.9.0 to 1.x.x, because i'd liked them being a cheap kamikaze unit. They should be 11 gold again.
Also the human/elven level1 Mage's coat should be blue again, looked nicer.

I like beavers.

Hello new guy here. I got this game for a college class in game design. I like the systems implemented here. I also find it really hard. looking for advice on how to set up things so battles run smoother. I haven't been able to beat the tutorial. first time I split my party too much second time I ran out of moves I guess. I am not sure. still learning the game been playing it for about 3 hours. Hope to learn how to play multiplayer.

You might want to look for some replays to watch or post your replay somewhere and ask for advice (otherwise we won't know what exactly went wrong). In general, attack in a way that lowers the damage you can receive in the counterattack and try to force the enemy in a hex with a bad defense if they want to attack you.

Usually there is a limit on the number of turns. For the tutorial, this limit is 26 turns. This is indicated by the "1/26" in the screenshot below.

Hi, I am Soufwar or Ian if you want to call me by my real name. I have been put on Battle For Wesnoth as an assignment by my Systems Design professor, I have grown to like the game quite a bit.
I am a game designer and a huge fan of video games in general. If you consider games to be an art form we're already friends. I believe someone's taste in video games shows a lot about their personality, I like bloodborne, Hotline Miami, Journey, Shadow Of The Colossus and Ico among hundreds of other games, I have joined the forums to hopefully practice some game design and hopefully get better at it to be able to improve this game, I want to do level design (or map design in this case), mission and narrative design (or scenario design here) and just make this amazing game better.
My hopes are to meet some like-minded people and make friends in this community of gamers and developers :)
Nice meeting all of you, here's to Wesnoth!

Hi Skyline4ward, the tutorial is actually one of the most confusing tutorials I've ever seen, I think I beat it with 22 moves so I was cutting it close. What I did was send all my units to the bridge in the beginning and 3 units to the right shore village. This was I could counter the enemy effectively, I recommend you use 2 archers, 2 warriors, and a shaman since its a good combo in the beginning, then go for full archers later on and never recruit anything else. I hope the tutorial doesn't ruin your experience though, keep at it and you'll do just fine :)
