    Hey, Ogreman, could you tell me how attack strength and defence is increased in Ogre Wars? Like what the number of troops does to it, and amount of equipment/training etc? I'd like to add it to the wiki.

    You may get a better answer in the Ogre Wars forum:).

    I don't know the exact troop calculation, but weapons give the face value of attack power and armor gives the face value of defense power. Training just gives percentage bonuses of attack or defensive power depending on which you buy. Does that help any?

    Why are the fonts on the Ogre Wars page different sizes?

    I think it's a bug, I've had it happen a few times where it would just randomly make some text slightly smaller or bigger for some reason... it doesn't show up in the editor either, easy to fix though just re-size the text and it's fixed.

    It might be the browser. Some programs may make the fonts all the same size in IE, but not in FireFox.

    Darn, the crew all left before I could get a pic of the boss...and we were doing it on hard, so it's not like the three of us left could beat it.

    I still got a few screenies though.

    BTW, what is the forum medal gonna be?

    Ok, points added:).

    The forum medal will be something like Top Wiki Contributor.

    Those are the same prizes as the MMO Helper Contest. However, as mentioned in the Wiki thread, we could improve the prizes if a lot of people actively contribute a lot of content in this contest. For example, we could make first place a $20 UGC and second place a $10 UGC:).
