The Purpose of "How to play..."
This is a series that hopes to teach players how to play with and against every faction. Link to the appropriate "How to play..." thread according to what faction you are playing (or want to study) and you'll find general strategies for that faction as well as specific unit-by-unit strategies on how to play against each of the 6 Default factions (including "mirror" matches).
All strategies are given with the assumption of a 1v1 game on a balanced map, with the settings being 100 gold, 70% xp, 2gpv, and fog on. Another assumption is that the game is being played on the latest version of Wesnoth (currently 1.1.2a). The tactics will be similar under many different settings, but if the your version is different the tactics may be drastically different, so keep that in mind.
