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.

Sorry for the confusion!

Under rating threshold (show) Here I was just avoiding this on Facebook for years because I was irritated that people were flooding my feed with requests for whatever bonuses they got for recruiting people, but it turns out that it was actually an awful game, too. I'm sure the developers are going to continue doing their PR thing by spinning this and/or other comments into, "If you try harder, you just might find some fun in it!" But seriously, fellow Kongregants, if you're reading this, just go play some more Gemcraft.

If you try harder, .... hehe just kidding. Thanks for giving us a try and sorry you didn't enjoy playing. We definitely know that this type of game isn't for everyone, but some people love it and we do our best to provide the best game experience we can!

Under rating threshold (show) Why do I lose battles from someone i put in hospital faster then he does with me

+ - !

(7)

Developer response from kanoapps

Hey zombieslaugther, thanks for your question. The outcome of a battle is determined by pitting the aggressor's Attack power against the target's Defense power. Whoever has the higher power after all items, bonuses, multipliers, etc have been applied is the victor. Usually the person with the greater power deals the most damage, but there are a few cases when this doesn't happen. For instance, an attacker cannot deal more damage than than their target has health.

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) Things that are wrong with this : 1) The screen is so piss-ass annoying when it takes 10 seconds to get to the bottom. I don't need half the shit on the screen! Why can't I shorten it? It's simple convenience! 2) It's way too advanced. Random buttons, overcomplicated shop, too many confusing areas, and rows and rows of buttons. I don't understand it. 3) The Gameplay is EXTREMELY boring. You choose a job, then click "Do Job Again" a few billion times and you're done. I want more to do, but I don't want to explore through a mess of buttons just to play, either! 4) What's up with the battles? You press "Attack" then wait another 3 hours just to attack again. And I see no progression in the battle, or a health bar, at that. 5) Why does this game have badges? There are way better games than this absolute shit, but they don't get badges. You know it's a bad game when half of the users don't actually WANT to earn the badges. 1/5

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.

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. :)

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.

+ - !

(113)

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!
