What I find annoying is when someone leaves without explanation. I'm fine if someone says "I've got homework, I've got to go", but if you just up and leave, that's more frustrating. Lost connections can account for some of it, but even if they just decide they're going to lose, they could have the d...

I mean, unless you're a genuine newcommer to the Internet, it's simply not possible you don't know about the search function on a forum, or about being polite when you ask something instead of yelling "WTF IZ TEH ANSEWR OMG !!11!1". Or about posting "strategy tips" when you are not that good a stra...

I think this is a problem caused by influx of new people, good and bad, as will be seen in any open forums. Ignorance is excusable a few times, and I think the community should be more open about giving light constructive criticism and not attacking ideas as much, but I also think that after a certa...

Ahhhhh! Crystal Artifacts that can persuade people OMG! And build pretty shiny towers. And unleash blasts of light. And undermine one's clear judgment. Hmm... actually, the recoloring of older units is probably a better idea then the recoloring of the current units if you ask me. Maybe it's just me...

I'm going to state my opinion on the randomness of Wesnoth: I like it, because it adds a sense of uncertainty to every move. Maybe they'll get lucky and kill my mage. Maybe they'll get lucky and I'll lose half my front line. However, I can appreciate the role the RNG plays in my thinking. If it wasn...

I figured that was the basis when I read the proposal... Now I have to make a Jarlaxle-based faction to take over your entire era. With an Entreri hero leader. If you do that I'll have to make a crystal artifact to undermine your takeover, and incite the others in your guild to betray it's leader a...

You know I'm surprised at how many people have shunned the whole clan thing... I mean ultimately (as seen in other games) clans have set up their own servers and created some pretty cool mods. Oh and clans actually use TeamSpeak... Plus clans = more competition/more interest/more advertisement for ...

Clans are to be thought of as something that I do not pay any attention to.

It's merely not worth it, if you ask me. It's like the "clans" on Nintendo WiFi, except with even less aparent point.

P.S. You played Battle for Wesnoth version 9.2 :shock: Going of memory, it was in the early 9.x series that I got hooked (or slightly earlier). Whichever version was first posted on the apple site is the one I found. I'm sure it was the 9.x series because I remember getting to the level with 3 orc ...

But I can't imagine anyone getting hooked on development if they weren't previously hooked on 1.0. Can you imagine some of the people who post on these forums getting hooked before there was even a 1.0 release? I remember playing 9.2, that's when I got hooked :) I suppose that was even moreso in de...

Elven malomancy could be where the Dark Elves come from - a normal elf that starts to dabble in malomancy, or is corrupted by the malomancy of another elf, ends up a dark elf. (Turin, please set aside your hatred of dark elves for a second and at least consider this.) Simple, really. Which is dark ...

I've only run into one bug in any of the so called "development editions", and that was with the storm trident in this version (I played on 1.1.7-1.1.9)

If you don't intend to do HTTT immediatly, use 1.1.9, it's quite stable and has better balance then 1.0.2 for units.

Id say, dont get offended, that if two low players start playing, drakes are too good. Then if two midlle players play, drakes vs loyalist, rebels or undead can be a bit hard for drakes. I dunno how when two gawds play, but i suppose theyll find everything well balanced, because its them who balanc...
