Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / days repeating over and over

And I’m not sending anyone on city quests, so that has NOTHING to do with it, for those who think this is the cause.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / days repeating over and over

It doesn’t save my production, so all is lost when this happens. Happened all day yesterday, but today maybe it’s ok, just started playing and first day is ok, but just upgraded my shop and BOOM error. Dunno wtf is up, but for sure it won’t be possible to play like this. Only thing that isn’t reset is resources renew regularly and people on quests time out as normal, but everything else is screwed.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Revamping PVP

EDD: Armor games has stopped hosting king’s bounty. I went over there to urge people to stop playing, only to find that it isn’t there any more.

Check it out guys. We keep talking amongst ourselves, brainstorming about how to make this game better, but Nival doesn’t seem to care, right? We’re all wasting our breath, our time and our genius on a bunch of money grubbing maggots.

I suggest we stop it right now. Stop playing. Just stop. Stop feeding a bottomless hole.

Don’t throw pearls at the feet of swine. They won’t know what to do with them, and they’ll probably end up eating them and crapping them out.

Save your pearls my friends. Save them for someone that cares.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Players of the World UNITE!!!!!

Preamble: Armor Games no longer hosts King’s Bounty: Legions. Could it be because it’s not worth hosting and is a scam of a game?

So I’ve just contacted Kong about this game, briefly explaining some of the issues I have with it and then asking them to no longer host such a game.

I highly urge you all to do the same.

If enough of us do this, we can at least get Nival to pay attention to us, as they don’t seem to give two squats at the moment.

Or we can get such a crap, money grabbing game taken off a good server.

Let’s show Nival that they can’t mess with us without paying a price.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / You ask - we reply!

why are the amounts stolen from me in raids ungodly high? Everyone else I have spoken with has higher ranking than me, more gold in their bank, and they’re losing many, many times less gold than I do.

It seems to average about 20% of my total that’s stolen each time.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Important announcement!

I keep losing about 20% gold per raid, when my legion is iron, which is supposed to be 3%.

WTF?!!“!”!"!?!?!?!??

Others don’t seem to be having this problem.

I have a screen shot, btw.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / frustrations and feedback about new patch.

Here is the direct quote from Nival:

The amount of gold that the winner of the battle takes in Raids in its turn depends on amount of gold determined by the amount of creatures killed and the amount of gold that is calculated based on the gold that the defender has. The higher your Legion, the more gold can be taken from you.

This is the percentage of gold that the winner takes depending on the Legion of the defender:

Copper – 2,00%
Iron – 2,50%
Brass – 3,00%
Silver – 3,50%
Gold – 4,00%
Platinum – 5,00%
Mythril – 6,00%
Diamond – 7,00%
Ethereral – 10,00%

So, the amount of gold taken from units killed comes not from the defending player, but is generated by the game (like in winning a daily quest battle), it’s the yellow number at the end that’s the amount stolen.

So I return today (yesterday as well), and find that I have been successfully raided twice.

I lost approximately 8k total, leaving me with 24k. That means I started with 32k, which means that I lost an average of 12.5% for each raid.

I am currently in the iron legion, so that’s 5 times the loss that it should be (actually it’s more, because between the two raids I won a raid and made 13k, so that means that I started out with 19k, not 32k, but for simplicity’s sake I’ll leave it at this).

I took a screenshot, as well, but can’t figure out how to use Windows 8 to get it on here.

I have tried really hard to give it a fair go with this new patch, but my frustrations are mounting.

Ok, here’s an EASY one.

Your PVP rating goes up or down based on RAIDS (that’s an ai, right).

PVP = Player vs. Player.

That means a human mind vs. another human mind. That’s what gives the rating meaning. It loses it’s meaning (even more than with this running away to lower your rating madness) if an ai battle can affect it.

And maybe you should check the amount-stolen-in-raids percentages. I’m in either brass or iron (depending) and people have been stealing 10% of my total.

That’s not what you’ve been advertising.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / PvP Runaway timeout [vote]

I think the issue is a broader restructuring of the pvp, and not just this small issue of the time out.

The new system is supposed to, if we believe the developers, more evenly match opponents, but as anyone who has done the pvp has seen, this is clearly not the case, as people are deliberately tanking their ranks by running away.

I have many suggestions about how to fix the problem(s), but I wonder if they don’t want it to be the way it is.

We have noticed that the gold rewards for friendly pvp have gone down in the past 24 hours, which means they are already fine tuning things, which means they are satisfied with the current version.

Anyway, just a couple of ideas:

-limit the level difference between opponents to a maximum of 5, irregardless (yes that is a word) of the ranking

-do not allow one side to attack before asking both players if they agree to the fight (if the fleeing option is kept)
as people are getting smacked by lvl 15 demonologists from lvl 30 plus players (and these are players with levels in the teens). This is an obvious tactic by some people to farm gold easily by tanking their rank to face people with low
initiative units. And anyone with units below 5 initiative will be hit.

-we could make a subnote here that this ability in demonologists should be disabled in the first round, as this
ability is the only one of it’s kind allowed to be used in the first round, and is obviously unbalanced.

-Do away with fleeing altogether, as using runes in pvp at the moment is basically a waste, and it allows players to
deliberately tank their ranks (or the rating change for a win by first round fleeing should be turned to zero or 1)

But all of these suggestions seem so obvious, one wonders why they don’t already exist, or one suspects that they are already working on these things.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / All unit Spreadsheet

But we all organize and understand this info in different ways, and the sharpness of one’s intellect is the biggest edge one has in a game like this. And while I’m sure that many of the most effective players see this info as obvious, I’m sure that not everyone does.

Very well said. I agree and could add other comments and critiques, but as these critiques seem glaringly obvious to anyone with even half a brain, I won’t add them, as I imagine that the developers of the game have created these “problems” intentionally, unless their grasp of the game is almost null, which would surprise me.

Maybe they’re trying to grab as much money as they can before cancelling the game completely. Not sure, but I can’t see any other outcome under the current conditions.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / REFUND

So I just bought 40$ worth of gems before you guys decided to destroy the game with this current patch. I’m wondering what is the way for me to get my money back, as I have no intention of playing the game in it’s current incarnation.

If you are going to say, “sorry, no refunds”, then I will pre-emptively retort by saying that you CANNOT advertise a product as one thing, and then when that product is purchased, the buyer finds that it is in fact not what was advertised (this is called “bait and switch” and is, in FACT, illegal).

It’s like to see a computer advertised on the internet for a certain amount of money: You read the reviews, you research it’s components (the sound card, video card, memory type, etc, etc) and find that it meets your needs quite nicely. So you decide to buy it. But when it arrives at your house, as you excitedly turn it on for the first time, you notice that it isn’t at all what you were expecting. In fact, the manufacturer has decided to change ALL of the components (which you have carefully researched, mind you) for different ones.

Oh, but it’s still the same OS and the same case, so no worries. It still looks the same on the screen when you turn it on (same OS, let’s say Windows 8), but underneath the shiny veneer, it’s not at all the same, and it doesn’t run the way you had expected, the way the manufacturer stated it would (and that’s a PROMISE made by the manufacturer), according to it’s list of component parts.

So, I got about a week’s worth of playing done (less actually) between my purchase and the patch changes.

I can’t really justify spending 40$ for one week’s worth of playing, especially considering that I can buy any number of amazing games for that amount, and then get to play them ad infinitum (as I would OWN the game).

And it’s obvious to everyone that you’ve changed things in order to make more money for yourselves, and NOT to improve the game playing experience. So you have no credibility as far as that’s concerned.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / All unit Spreadsheet

C’mon man, you’ve given all the info to everyone now. I made a sheet like this for myself, but it’s an advantage over others. I understand sharing info, but this is too much, imo. Not sure how many people even THOUGHT about per leadership point values, and now you’ve given them not only the concept, but all the info. sigh

There are things known as “trade secrets”.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Facebook vs. Kongregate Users

I’ve heard, but haven’t played there, that on FB, you can see the amount of gold you will get for a raid before you choose to raid them. That seems like a huge advantage.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Are you JOKING?

Yeah, before the patch I was making as much gold LOSING (with the Royal Aura) as I do now when I WIN. Actually I was probably making MORE losing before than I make winning now.

That would surely help finding the good posts without having to wade through so much, and no offense intended, flotsam.

I’m working on gathering important topics into one with links.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / You ask - we reply!

This has probably been asked before, but ironically I would never know as there is no search feature on the forum, and as much as I love to waste time and read other people’s quandaries and what not, I don’t often feel like delving into the mass of posts and replies (that’s not to say I haven’t spent some time familiarizing myself with the forum, and it’s incredibly helpful I must say):

So, is it not possible to add a search feature onto the forum?

It would really be helpful.

I’m not sure if that’s a question for you or for Kongregate itself, but perhaps you’re able to facilitate that happening somehow.

Just an idea.
