Bug Fixed?[edit]

"Finally, when the leader of an ambush is killed (or captured), but not the other units, they will stand around and "wait" for their leader; this is probably a bug." I thought that Toady fixed this. Does his fix apply to ambushes, and therefore this should be removed? Jwoodward48 (talk) 16:08, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Elven Ambush[edit]

I got ambushed by elves. Sadly, I thougth this might be commonplace, so I didn't take any pictures. The ambush consisted of about 8 elf bowmen (showing up as ë) and the message displaied was something along the lines of "An ambush! Curse all friends of nature!". It might be worth noting that this was the first contact my fortress had with elves. I guess our groups were already at war when I settled. I didn't write this in the article because I'm not sure about the exact circumstances. DurianGrey (talk)

Ambush timing?[edit]

After reading the "ambushes tend to arrive near the end of the season", I still don't notice this occuring; for me ambushes and sieges tend to happen mid-season and never arrive with caravans. Is there a source that states this to be true or is it just guessing? Paralyzoid (talk) 06:08, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
