Under rating threshold (show) While I admit that this sort of game isn't my cup of tea and that I'm just here for the badges, I must say that I applaud the developer's friendly attitude while receiving the onslaught of negative feedback that games of this style get bombarded with. Kudos to you in that regard.

Thanks, we try to keep things positive! We're just a small indie company, so everybody who plays our games is important to us.

Under rating threshold (show) passing along the memo, (+ this up so people stop saying ''Why don't i get a full refill'' etc alt the time Developer response from kanoapps When a player levels up, they always receive the following bonus: Health: 5000 Energy: 500 Stamina: 50 If their health, energy or stamina maximum are equal to or lower than these figures, then they are refilled all the way. Sorry for the confusion!

Under rating threshold (show) I could tell from the moment I saw this that it was a multiplayer game. Not because of the generic-ass title, but from the fact it stretched the screen out.

We are indeed a multiplayer game! Grow your mob and reward them by adding them to your Familia!

Under rating threshold (show) Wayyyyyyy too tall. On my 1440x900 desktop, this game is a little over a page and a half tall; games should never require scrolling. Assuming a desktop is 768 high will make you OK for most users.

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the feedback, it's a pretty common one and something we are looking to address to improve the gameplay!

Under rating threshold (show) Badges? Seriously?

Developer response from kanoapps

We're really honored to get badges for our game. We know it's not for everyone, but are grateful for people at least having an open mind to try it out and also for all the regular players who think it's great.

Under rating threshold (show) Oh noes, a multiplayer game got badges again :( I have nothing against the game (apart from the fact that i won't play it), but it's always a disappointment to see a new badge that won't be a chance to play a great game... It's like opening a big shiny present and there's something you don't like in it. Gets your hopes down...

Developer response from kanoapps

On the other hand, some people might like it! There's no accounting for taste sometimes :)

Under rating threshold (show) I'd be a lot more inclined to assist and gift people if it didn't involve closing so many popup windows. Please consider making these actions less click heavy.

Thanks for the suggestion, we're currently looking at ways to make gifting/assisting a more streamlined experience.

Under rating threshold (show) Well, I decided to stick with this game and I gotta say, it's way more fun at level 272 than it is at level 50. My main complaint is still the long 2 day cooldown on bosses. Sure, you can do other people's bosses on the Raids tab, but each player is operating on a 2 day cooldown for each boss and you can only join if they share their boss fights, so you can't always find the boss you're looking for. Plus the long cool down time means it takes weeks to unlock new bosses, since you need to beat the prievous boss 5 times to unlock the next one. The whole pay2win thing turns out to be a non issue, since you can get plenty of free Favor Points from doing Turf War challenges, and the number of friends in your mob has a bigger impact on your fight strength than your equipment.

+ - !

Developer response from kanoapps

Hey chefcook90, glad you kept playing and that you're enjoying it! The Boss cooldown is something that gets brought up from time to time, so we can certainly look at addressing it. Thanks for your feedback! :)

Under rating threshold (show) When I have to hit Ctrl-minus twice just to see even half of your hilariously oversized screen, you're doing it very wrong. This may surprise you, but most people don't have screens over 2000px tall.

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for giving Mob Wars a chance and thanks for the comment. We know that the screen length is an issue and is something we are looking to adjust to improve the game play experience!

Under rating threshold (show) another pay to win that got badges, I was surprised to see so many developer responses but after reading them... you DO realise most of the top comments are hating you right?

Developer response from kanoapps

We think a little bit of positivity goes a long way, no matter the comment.

Jan. 23, 2013

Under rating threshold (show) Great Potential, Just could use a little boost to make up for the low population of players. It's pretty sad to see that there's no one to fight after you reach a certain level. A lot of people depend on fights/boss fights for most of their exp needed to level since you could only get so much from energy based exp. Any way you can provide npcs that respawn every 10min or so to allow players to have something to hit, or else we just sit around waiting for our energy to refill, and for some people it's a very long time.

+ - !

(116)

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the comment Bakabwoy, we're looking to remove the mob requirement on bosses to make them more available for people on the feed. For pvp battles at the lower levels at the moment we just need more active people in the game. We also plan on opening up the battle arena once there are enough high level players in the game aswell!

I thought we were past the money grubbing energy bar phase. *Sigh...fine..I'll suffer for the badges. ....Wait, I've been scrolling down for 5 minutes and I'm still not to the comments.....son of a..

We are indeed Mob Wars and are sorry that our game isn't your thing, but we do thank you for giving it a try! Lots of people do enjoy the game and hopefully you will give it a chance and see what they like!

Under rating threshold (show) ahhh so continues the process of Kongregate giving badges to generic-sub par multiplayer games in the hope of.. i don't even know what they're hoping for anymore. maybe they're hoping they'll lose the entire base of people who play games on this site and want to get badges.

+ - !

(28)

Developer response from kanoapps

Or maybe the user base rated the game highly and Kongregate felt it was worthwhile giving the game badges? Who knows! :)

Under rating threshold (show) Having the same strengths and weaknesses as a lot of fb games....i can see how people can get hooked into it.....but i just find that story wise it is just too poor for kong ((no comparison with dod ro suns)) ......but have to give it a plus for developers responding to the harsh criticisms.....hats off to you coz none of the other money sucking games have the decency to do that.

+ - !

(45)

Developer response from kanoapps

Well I certainly wouldn't consider this a money-sucking game (we have to make a living), I appreciate your comment all the same! We try to respond to most of the comments, or at least the ones we feel like we can contribute something to. :)

Developer response from kanoapps

We had a successful promotion based on user feedback so Kongregate though it would be a good idea to give us badges. Sorry to hear that you don't enjoy this type of game!

Under rating threshold (show) Why invest the time to make such a huge Screen and so many graphics? Just put a button in the middle of the Screen and let People click them. Add texts like "don't you dare clicking me!" if you want. And for the fun add a longer break after 1k clicks or so or let People pay for clicking on. would save you devs a lot of time...

Developer response from kanoapps

People like the artwork, it's one of the things that gets praised the most in our game. We wouldn't take that away from people!

Jan. 20, 2013

Under rating threshold (show) Speaking as a potential new player, this game has serious problems. The biggest is that the interface alone makes me want to close the tab. Is this really the best layout? Sorry, my screen isn't 3 feet tall. If I've been here for 10 seconds, do I really need to see things that are locked until level 20? Also, why no tutorial? Third, the twitter/facebook/game pimping is just shameless. and where do i see my loyalty points and favor points? I don't see them anywhere on the interface

+ - !

(59)

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the feedback! We appreciate hearing specific issues new players have with the UI and game set up, as feedback from fresh eyes is great. While we unfortunately can't promise immediate and wide-ranging UI changes, we will take your suggestions under consideration. As for your question about favor points, you can see them in brackets on the "Godfather" tab. You can also see loyalty points by clicking on the "Loyalty Items" section under the Godfather tab.

Under rating threshold (show) click "do job". wait. click "do job" wait. THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO THIS GAME AND ALL THERE EVER COULD BE! even WORSE than "empire of the fading suns"...and you really have to WORK at it to make something MORE boring than that! quitting at level 15. even the easy badge is not worth it!

Have you tried the PVP aspect, the challenges or fighting bosses? There's more to this game than just jobs.

Under rating threshold (show) Seeing that the devs are actually responding I have to ask, why energy? Not that this is a bad game. But I am curious why you went for a energy game instead of a normal game?

Developer response from kanoapps

This game was designed a few years ago when Energy games were very common. It's a little out of style now, but we stick to what we know. :)

Under rating threshold (show) This is a great example of a game trying to be way to many things at the same time. It doesn't introduce any of the features while still allowing the "push this button a lot of times" strategy to get you to level 40. Remove 70% of the content and add some real mini games.

Developer response from kanoapps

We worked really hard on that 70% of the content! We'd feel terrible removing it. :(

Under rating threshold (show) Alright, the game may have some points were you can say it sucks, but the sceen is so tall, so use your mousescroll, and it is actually a really nice multiplayer were you can level quick.Oh, and you don't have to put money in it, you may, but you don't have to, the developers created it nicely and with mind.And as you can see, the developer cares about the players, they are even replying to the comments wich aren't top comments.

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for your comment Jas691! We understand that this game isn't for everyone, but the tall screen is a concern for some so we'll still try and address it. :)

Under rating threshold (show) The game seems just like 100 others I've seen. The UI is cluttered and pointlessly huge. On the upside, I was able to click through the badges without really ever needing to wait for timers to refill things, so I'm very impressed.

Under rating threshold (show) I have said this many times but only because i do believe so; MMO should not have badges mostly cuz the ''achievement hunters''(like myself) play the game get the badges, rate the game bad and them go their way AND they take too much time for their value DX. also as an Italian i feel a little offended by this game :P

People of Norse heritage also don't like the fact that we put horns on helmets in Viking Clan, one of our other games. What are you going to do?

xxxxTEEHEExxxx

Nov. 10, 2013

Under rating threshold (show) Getting badges was clearly not a good idea. You probably know that the target audience for these types of games are usually not badge hunters(as this requires you to invest some time with an energy system, rather than hopping from game to game that you completed.) Also because there are ~100 mmo reskins on kong the least you could do was put something in to make this one seem unique, or in some way different. Facebook might have worked better for you because the majority of people there login in and play for ~15 min before logging out but please, don't put this on another gaming site especially one where you can play all the games for free.

+ - !

(22)

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the feedback. This game got given badges based on a successful Hot Games promotion, so we weren't trying to grab the badge hunters necessarily, more like reward the loyal players who helped us get to this spot. :)
