Sin Arcain 08/12/2019 08:12 am What do you people think is the easierst race to clear sites with in the beginning, and what race has most difficult to start?
Sin Arcain 08/12/2019 08:12 am *easiest
Hiliadan 08/12/2019 11:47 am I think Dwarves are easier because they're quite tanky and straightforward to play. Orcs are good too with Victory Rush but you need to be cautious with their low resistance
Hiliadan 08/12/2019 11:48 am Tigrans are very difficult I think because very squeashy with the low resistance and Cheetahs are not the usual ranged units. At the beginning, I struggled a lot with them. Now I know how to play them and they're really good. But they're for more experienced players I think
novograd 08/12/2019 02:59 pm it depends on what stage of beginning. dwarves the strongest race but they don't have any evolving starting units. human or high elves can get t3 or t2 by evolve. After evolve, they are stronger.
novograd 08/12/2019 03:02 pm also there are some diffrences on starting unit set. some race has t1infantory instead t1 irregular. infantory much stronger ofcouse.
Sin Arcain 09/12/2019 08:36 am Thanks for the replies. I meant the very beginning, when you try to tackle the sites around your throne settlement with the starting units. I struggle with Draconian, I have to admit. I usually have to skip on the forge because I can't beat that without losing a unit.
marcuspers 09/12/2019 12:47 pm With weak start, goblins and draconians can be a pain, because you sometimes get an infantry instead of an irregular. With a range attack some sites becomes easier, such as a forge. Tigrans as Hiliadan mentions suffer the same, as they dont have any start units with a range attack. On the other side, some sites becomes easier with added infantry
marcuspers 09/12/2019 12:49 pm Elfs are probably the best, unless you fight wisps/phantasm warriors
MagicProgression 09/12/2019 02:44 pm Autocombat is the worst. It marches all my infantry in to die. I can't divide up the xp to troops that are close to leveling. On top of that, if you have true resurrect, each battle wastes 50 casting points to give you some tier 2.
MagicProgression 09/12/2019 02:46 pm I'll admit autocombat has saved me spectacularly in some battles I thought were completely lost, but it's terrible at keeping everything alive.
DrLight 09/12/2019 06:36 pm Dwarves rock!
DrLight 09/12/2019 06:37 pm literally =P
Hiliadan 09/12/2019 10:02 pm @MagicProgression: in PBEM, you don't play battles vs independents in auto though. What about playing some games here? You haven't joined any
Sin Arcain 09/12/2019 10:06 pm We actually have a match going on. Do you still intend to finish it Magic, by the way?
Sin Arcain 09/12/2019 10:09 pm I understand if not, you said you had a rough start.
Hiliadan 09/12/2019 10:10 pm Ah! But not hosted here?
Sin Arcain 09/12/2019 10:15 pm I picked him up from discord, and he joined this website a bit after. I also didn't think it would be fair to report since he is very new to PBEM.
DrLight 09/12/2019 10:49 pm @MagicProgression, I'm new too if you want to play...
DrLight 09/12/2019 10:50 pm I only have 2 games going atm, I could do 1 more...
Hiliadan 09/12/2019 10:57 pm You need to lose first vs novo @DrLight He proposed a game to you
Hiliadan 09/12/2019 10:57 pm Learn the hard way what you should aim for in terms of speed and what mind-control can achieve
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:00 pm He sent me a pm saying hello... I will create a game for him to join =)
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:00 pm I can do 4 then lol
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:03 pm I think I'm going to lose one of my games really soon =(
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:04 pm Do you guys ever play like classic AoW or AoW 2? just for fun?
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:04 pm I haven't played AoW2 in like 10 years
DrLight 09/12/2019 11:05 pm that nostalgia brought me to AoW 3
Hiliadan 09/12/2019 11:08 pm Same for me for AoW2:SM. I really like the game and I'd be happy to play it again in the future, but now I try to focus on AoW3 and then I'll play Baldur's Gate 1 and then AoW: Planetfall
DrLight 10/12/2019 07:00 am Baldurs Gate 3 is coming! =) made by the same guys of Divinity Original Sin
Sin Arcain 10/12/2019 07:21 am I am looking forward to it too.
MARKYMARK 10/12/2019 10:59 am RPG? For years, we maked thinking about league pages for rpg games...but no one has a really good idea about.
Hiliadan 10/12/2019 11:15 am BG3 looks horrible from the video I saw, not in the spirit of BG1 and BG2 at all. Just like the BG games they did on console
Sin Arcain 10/12/2019 07:20 pm Which version of the SP&PNEM mod is advised to use? The 1.29 or 1.28?
Sin Arcain 10/12/2019 07:20 pm *PBEM
$eeR 10/12/2019 08:01 pm need two more expert players to join DreadReaper in the hosted 3v3
DrLight 10/12/2019 08:31 pm how many new players are out there? enough to do a 2v2?
Hiliadan 10/12/2019 11:25 pm It's not really about the version @Sin Arcain, it's about the branch you use. Beta branch has the updates first but might have small bugs. Main branch (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=661597466) is updated later.
Hiliadan 10/12/2019 11:26 pm New players: Sin Arcain, DrLight, MagicProgression, and I think you can easily pick a player with less than 800 ranking points like Markymark to have fair teams
Hiliadan 10/12/2019 11:39 pm By the way, we're going to have an update of the Shadow Realm community expansion in December and I encourage you to play with it in new games! And we are also interested by testers for the single player new campaign. The mod for the campaign: https://steamcommunity.com/sh...
Sin Arcain 11/12/2019 06:23 am I didn't ask about the branch because there is only one of 1.29, and both 1.28 ones has the same content. So as I see it the branch doesn't matter, and the version does.
Sin Arcain 11/12/2019 06:46 am Anyway, I will use 1.29 then.
Sin Arcain 11/12/2019 07:27 am As to a 2v2 I suppose we could give it a go. I have no clue about how team games work in this game so would be interesting.
Hiliadan 11/12/2019 10:23 am As I said, the version does not matter and the branch does. It's not static. The main branch will be updated to v1.29 and the beta will be updated to v1.3.
Hiliadan 11/12/2019 10:24 am And the beta will be updated with a versions with potential small issues when it updates to v1.3 (just like it currently contains small bugs which the main does not have)
Sin Arcain 11/12/2019 10:30 am I don't quite understand how these works so I take your word for it. I was just curious about what is better to use for our casual games.
DrLight 11/12/2019 05:21 pm I have no clue either... but yes, I guess it could be fun... any advice from more experience players would be greatly appreciated...
DrLight 11/12/2019 05:21 pm I just created the game, all those new players out there feel free to join =)
DrLight 11/12/2019 05:21 pm https://www.the-battlefield.c...
DrLight 11/12/2019 05:32 pm the game is also up in the server
DrLight 11/12/2019 09:02 pm What do you guys think about Halflings and the lucky feature?
Hiliadan 11/12/2019 10:44 pm I think it's OK. Halflings are tough to play and you need to pay a lot more attention to the terrain you stand on, but it's do-able
keika 12/12/2019 06:36 pm I don't like luck feature at all. And I have a feeling that is is somehow broken. Sometimes it triggers too often.
So many times I saw double miss luck with 1% chance. I can't believe that I am too "lucky" to see 3 attacks and 3 retaliation where 4 of them are luck miss (with 10% and 15% luck). I think something is wrong with random generation.
DrLight 12/12/2019 08:19 pm Right Keika, but that compensates to the fact that you can almost one hit most of the halfling units... I don't like it either when I play against it, but I'm thinking about using them
DrLight 12/12/2019 08:20 pm @Hiliadan, right, it seems like morale is key, I think that makes it hard to assault enemy players.... I guess similar to what happen between draconians and frostlings...
Guest-1576097432 12/12/2019 08:45 pm still need one morre top player
Hiliadan 12/12/2019 10:12 pm The lucky feature is not broken at all
Hiliadan 12/12/2019 10:12 pm and there is no issue with random numbers
Hiliadan 12/12/2019 10:13 pm @DrLight: depends what races your enemies play, but yeah it can be tough to go UG or on Hatred terrain
Hiliadan 12/12/2019 10:19 pm @all: Speaking of Halflings, please vote on the poll on their RG updates if you haven't yet: https://www.the-battlefield.c... Please vote taking into account the changes brought to Halfling RG by the balance mod
DrLight 12/12/2019 10:32 pm I will play with halflings my next game, I don't think I have value to add to the poll
Fluksen 13/12/2019 11:44 am I love halflings and the luck mechanic. Real fun to play with! @DrLight if you are new then keep in mind that halflings inherently only have the jester for elemental damage. So especially if you are a beginner you might want to pick something to migitate this or you will struggle especially in the beginning when clearing nodes and scrolls guarded by phantom warriors
DrLight 13/12/2019 04:53 pm true! I forgot about that, so maybe a hafling sorcerer? A halfling warlord makes no sense anyway...
Hiliadan 13/12/2019 04:58 pm Halfling Warlord is pretty strong. cbower, one of the best player we had, really loved it and excelled at it. But it's very hard to play
Hiliadan 13/12/2019 04:58 pm You can get crazy Eagle Riders among other things
DrLight 13/12/2019 05:24 pm that sounds fun!
novograd 13/12/2019 05:56 pm I hate luck system. in totally damage, luck system is quite good unless you can keep moral. But the most problem is unexpected.
novograd 13/12/2019 05:58 pm It's very nasty if your opponent has luck, like independent, but you also hard to draw picture on battle.
novograd 13/12/2019 05:59 pm unless you can keep-> unless you can't keep
Hiliadan 13/12/2019 10:18 pm There will be an update of the Shadow Realm community expansion soon:
Hiliadan 13/12/2019 10:19 pm I'm playing scenario 3A of the campaign, looking forward to playing the other two endings, especially the one where you start without a base!
Refineus 14/12/2019 12:46 am Good luck. Hopefully it managable to beat them. :-)
novograd 14/12/2019 04:36 pm I saw a dwell with 6rock cave wall
Hiliadan 14/12/2019 07:29 pm And?
novograd 15/12/2019 06:12 pm I mean that dwell totally surronded by wall so can't access
Hiliadan 15/12/2019 06:16 pm That should be impossible, screenshot? and save?
novograd 15/12/2019 06:19 pm yes it should be impossible but happend
novograd 15/12/2019 06:19 pm it's on ongoing game so if I get my turn I can take shot
novograd 15/12/2019 06:19 pm however I can't upload picture here..
Hiliadan 15/12/2019 06:21 pm Why not? https://www.the-battlefield.c... Also many sites can help you host pictures
novograd 15/12/2019 06:22 pm oh I know this fuction first time)
$eeR 15/12/2019 06:30 pm any players interested in a live team game 2v2 ? vs
$eeR 15/12/2019 06:30 pm
Sin Arcain 15/12/2019 07:07 pm I am afraid, not.
