Thanks in advance!
Thanks in advance!
Yes, although the only confirmation i can find right now is in this review @ GameBoomers
Here's the relevant bit:
"The way you gain level is as usual, through experience. This is not done with experience points however, but with a small “bar” indicating how far you have progressed. It takes time to gain a new level in this game...the bar moves very slowly, and it really makes you strive to gain a new level, and makes the wait all the more worthwhile.
To gain experience by defeating foes, you have to be the one defeating them. I do not see the point in having an army at your back, but not letting you gain experience for the enemies your army kills. After all, they are bound to you, and therefore should not their experiences connect to you in some way? The current game structure means you have to be at the front of your army most of the time to gain as much experience and power as possible, and not in the back, where it is relatively safe – an important factor if you are a mage. In Spellforce you do not actually have to be as powerful as you possibly can, since much of the time you can have an army do your work for you. But it is very helpful to be somewhat powerful on the maps where you are only accompanied by your Heroes."
I don't know about the 'without aid'. I'm thinking its more your Avatar had to deal the finishing blow maybe...
Well, that will soon change, don't worry ;)
There are some decent general tips on thread here. A couple more on [url=http://www.gog.com/en/forum/spellforce_platinum/so_i_amp_039_ve_been_seduced_by_sideboob]this one, mainly regarding your Avatar and claiming monuments.
Yeah...I haven't played enough RTS's for a fixed camera to have stopped being a relief yet ;)
Seriously, I lose track pretty quickly if the camera's movable. That actually kept me from buying Ground Control when it was on sale here.
I prefer free camera, if the position i'm facing is properly shown on the minimap. I think it was Silverfall that had a terrible minimap in that regard, really put me off at the begining, but eventually i got used to it. It the end is just a matter of getting used to the way things work i guess.
Well, in that case i was equally mistaken, cause i was also under the impression it worked that way, but naturally there's no arguing with proper testing. Thanks for pointing this out.
Apparently i was wrong, read Prator's post above. You probably want to adjust your tactics accordingly depending if you're leading just troops you control or if there are allied troops which you don't control in the equation.
I'm really sorry for the bad info, i was wrong and that review ended up reinforcing just that.
