[POLL] What user made campaigns you like most?

Post by Aldarisvet » April 28th, 2016, 10:43 am

Choose your 5 most beloved user made campaigns (campaigns from the add-ons server)!
How to vote: simply make a post with list of 5 (five or less if you cant find five you really like) of them separated by commas. You can also write why you like these campaigns but do this under a spoiler please. We cant make 'normal' vote because there is a limit for maximum 15 options in the forum poll module and we need to vote for 65+ campaigns. So we make this opened and manual vote. Intermediate results will preiodically be counted and published in the attached image file. Do not use this thread for posts unrelated to voting, if you have some questions about the whole idea, use this thread - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=44104

Which campaigns can be voted for?
Spoiler:
What this poll for?
Spoiler:
We really need your votes to know community tastes! Please vote!!! We would need at least 100 votes to judge about how really people estimate user-made campaigns.

I cant see campaigns here that are not from the list. Use search in the browser to check.
But! There must be only 5 campaigns! Not more! Otherwise the vote would be unbalanced!
Would say this: if people going to violate the rule and to name more then 5 campaigns, we would simpy count only top 5 from the list!
So please correct you vote or admit that Alariel's Journey and Swamplings would not be counted. Also please do not answer me here. I want to avoid any discussions in this thread, only voting posts. Also please avoid abbreviations, it was not obvious what Foap means for me before I filtered campaigns by alphabet.

Thank for your votes!

foap means Fate of a Princess.

You try too hard to make something "official" here. However...

1. Panther Lord
2. Secret of the Ancients
3. Cities of the Frontier (needs more love)
4. The Altaz Mariners (for innovation)
5. (reserved)

For my votes:

-Secrets of the Ancients
-Saving Elensafar
-Alterez Mariners

As a note:

I'm going to request as author that War of the Dragon be removed from this list as it is incomplete.
--I may restory this and release the first 5 scenarios as a single experience as I feel that the -gameplay- arc there is very strong but I don't think the rest of it quite carries it as well and I won't have the time/energy to finish this campaign anytime soon.

1. Ooze Mini-Campaign
2. Elvish Dynasty, which isn’t on the list for some reason?

I never finished any of the other campaigns I tried out.

- Legend of the Invincibles
- Invasion from the Unknown
- Secrets of the Ancients
- Inky's Quest (this has no relation to me, but maybe I'm a bit biased ;) )
- Fate of a Princess

EDIT: I found Velensk's list below pretty interesting; here's mine:
Completed / started campaigns from the list
* = complete

*1. Invasion from the unknown and its sequel After the Storm
2. Bad Moon Rising and Trinity
3. For Power
*4. The Soujournings of Grog
*5. Children of Dragons
*6. A Rough Life
*7. The White Troll
8. Flight to Freedom - started, got about halfway through to the zillionth drakes-without-healing-fight-dwarves-in-caves scenario, quit out of frustration.
9. The Three Elves
10. Saving Elensefar - I started this and liked it, but then I took a break from playing wesnoth and it was very difficult to get back into the campaign since I didn't know what was going on anymore.
11. Legend of the Invincibles - I only finished Part I (it's way too long to play all at once) so far but it's the most fun campaign I've ever played.
12. Salt Wars
*13. Panther Lord
14. Unite the Clans
*15. Fate of a Princess
*16. Brave Wings
*17. The Library Of Kratemaqht
*18. The Roar of the Woses
19. Swamp Witch Curse - I found it too difficult when I first tried (I got brutally massacred on the very first scenario on the normal difficulty); the campaign looks cool though and I've always intended to give it another try.
*20. Secrets of the Ancients
*21. The Flight of Drakes
*22. Only Death Behind
*23. Soldier of Wesnoth
24. Danse Macabre
25. The Beautiful Child
*26. An Undead Incursion
27. Swamplings
*28. Besieged Druids
*29. Inky's Quest
*30. The Founding of Borstep
31. Epical
*32. A Vision Blinded
33. The Underness Series (I, II, III, IV and IV)
*34. A Beastly Tale
35. To Lands Unknown
36. Girl unDead
*37. A Walk in the Woods
38. Way of Dragon
39. Legend of Far North
40. Doreldos: Fight to Liberty
41. Rebellion in the North
42. Birth of a Lich - started but didn't finish (another victim of a Wesbreak; I plan to get back to it eventually.)
43. Grnk the Mighty
44. A New Order
*45. Amaranthine Stone
*46. Galuldur's First Journey
47. Elves Banding For War - I played the first few scenarios (on hard) but I got stuck on one of them and just never got back to it.
48. The Revival Of Halstead
49. Rise of the Elementalist
50. Affably Evil
51. Count Kromire
52. Alariel's Journey: A Faerie Tale
53. Crin of Crenlyn
54. Aldur_The_Great
55. A Northern Village
56. War of the Dragon
*57. Hunters of the East
*58. The Drums of War
59. Kill the King
60. Bitter Revenge
61. The Dark Alliance

I have started tons of these, but haven't completed many of them, so keep my vote with a grain a salt. Also, if a campaign is completed or added during the poll, will it be added?

In no particular order
1. Inky's Quest
2. A Beastly Tale
3. Flight to Freedom
4. Gnrk The Mighty
5. Swamplings

You know, an interesting metric as well might be "how many of these have you started/completed" and maybe why not finished.

Though that can take awhile to answer.

I include mine just to see if this kind of thing interests anyone:
Spoiler:
After going through this, I realized that Alterez Mariners isn't actually on this list, possibly because it's a multiplayer campaign. Perhaps it should be.

  • A Rough Life — Very polished campaign with some interesting twists and the all-critical playability
  • Fate of a Princess — Interesting story spiced up with a few custom mechanics
  • Altaz Mariners — Good light RPG take on a campaign
  • Talentless Mage — Very well done parody but quite difficult
  • Grnk the Mighty — Great campaign made even better by customized AI
