Hello to all of you Kongregators! We at Broken Bulb Studios are soo incredibly excited to begin bringing you games here on Kongregate. We have been astounded by the overwhelming reception Ninja Warz has received so far and we look forward to seeing what is in store for the future.
Because of the amazing support you players have given, we will work hard to support games like Ninja Warz on Kongregate and also look forward to releasing new games to Kongregate players in the future. We’d like to personally thank our new players as well as the ones which have been with us. We couldn’t do what we do without all of your support! Game On!
We’ll be monitoring these forums closely and look forward to your feedback and suggestions! If you had a previous thread closed or deleted, our apologies as we’re trying to get the forums cleaned up and more efficient for good feedback.
Yesterday, we released a couple updates for Ninja Warz.
We fixed a rare bug that could cause the Elite Ninja purchase to fail if the purchase process took over 10 minutes. If this has affected you, all you need to do is load the game and you should receive your Elite Ninja.
We have changed the minimum experience gained for fighting any battle to 1 from 0.
From the start, it was not intended for normal fights to drop weapons that could be sold for karma. However, this was something that got people really excited about doing fights, so we decided not to take any immediate action and watch how it played out.
Yesterday, we decided that these drops were a little bit out of control and made them a bit less common. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the situation.
We have also removed some item drops where the item was also being sold in the store.
From the start, it was not intended for tournament prizes to include weapons that could be sold for karma. We have modified those items to be sold for gold instead.
**Minor bug fixes**
Players with lots of friends should now be able to scroll to see all the entries on the rankings page.
Ninjas above level 35 will now be considered for achievements related to obtaining black belts.
We’ve been reading the stickied bug reports thread in the forums, and took some time to answer questions and solicit some additional information.
**Thank you for playing!**
We’ll be back with more updates including shiny new weapons and relics soon!
Please keep in mind that karma weapon drops were **not** removed from the game, and that this is **not** the end of the world.
- “Farmers” are now limited to a mere 19,321 fights per level.
- On average, karma weapon drops are about twice as rare.
- Karma weapons gained from tournaments are gone, but normal fights were/still are better to farm anyway.
Please also keep in mind that karma weapons were NEVER intended to come from either of those sources. Because players liked finding them so much, we decided to keep them in the game.
This isn’t a bait-and-switch. This is a bug fix and a compromise.
