Hi!
I've recently downloaded Swords & Soldiers, and don't understand every aspect of the game yet (I do, however, understand the most of it).
For instance, I'm not really sure what the Handicap does to (or against) you in the Skirmish and Multiplayer game mode. Could someone explain this?
Please, don't taunt me for this; I got this game as early as last night!

Many thanks in advance!

Handicap is nice when U play against some1 who is new in the world of S&S. Then he or she will get faster mana and gold and need more hits 2 get killed.

As Mario64a said: handicap makes it more difficult or easier for the player it is set for.

The exact effect is as follows:
-At minimum handicap (easier) everything costs half as much and cooldowns are halved.
-At maximum handicap (more difficult) everything costs twice as much and cooldowns are doubled.

An added bonus of setting both players to minimum handicap in multiplayer, is that you can play with ridiculous amounts of units. :)

That sounds fun, hope it don't give RSI while playing it that way.
