Dowloaded it, I'll only really get to play it when I'm either without internet, or there's nothing to be done for War, but thus far it seems pretty cool.

Code is in C++ and Lua IIRC, but there's also a user friendly language for free user-made DLC called WML (Wesnoth Markup Language).

I play this game every now and then though RL makes it hard for me to stick with the campaigns (and by extent, the game). The UMC here is actually pretty good, as well as the art (both fanmade and devmade). The 1.10 version's WML was recently updated to handle coding RPG features, so if you're a programmer with some spare time or just someone wanting to dabble with code and/or UMC of your own I suggest taking a look at this game. For those who are just interested in TBS, I'd say it's a pretty good take on the genre with each faction having it's own defining pros and cons, with the RPG classes thrown in as a nice twist. (It's really satisfying to beat some of the longer campaigns with the elites that were originally your level 1 soldiers, IMHO.)

Quite fun, I used to play it all the time with my brothers. I find the normal campaign to rather dull though.

Used to play multiplayer with friends. Games take ages though.

Also if you thought rng was frustrating in elements you going to be mad in here (unless you only play single player and abuse save loading, which a lot of people do).

I have loved this game since it was first created. Used to play it on Linux back in the old days :D
Haven't played it for a while now, but used to have LAN and hot seat games against my friends.
Used to love playing as the drakes and the elves, and sometimes the dwarves. I'm so downloading this again for old times sake!

If only they could combine Dota and Elements somehow.... :D
