Topic: General / Argonauts recruiting - possible free cupcake

Cleaned house, plenty of positions available, all levels welcome.

Easy going guild that doesn’t expect you to be in game every available minute you have. Drop in dump your honor, eat some cupcakes. You know, the usual stuff.

Topic: General / Argonauts recruiting - possible free cupcake

We have gone through some pre-spring cleaning and have a bunch of space available for some active players.

By “active” we mean play the game and have some fun, we don’t expect you to spend every waking moment killings things, but if that’s what you’re into, even better.

How much you play is more important than your level. Pretty new? Join and grow. Luminary? Join and brag about how awesome you are….on second thought, just be awesome without the bragging part…

Special consideration given to applicants that submit a cupcake recipe…

That’s Kong’s area. Not the game dev’s.

That’s funny…how did you know I was referring to your driveling and not some other whiner?

I am having issues with energy as well, and I have brought it up several times before…

@Bradmax: I experience the same problems with questing. It normally occurs when i have a long series of hits, as it happens after a level up or in the morning when energy is fully recovered.

Likewise. The disconnect only happens on quests to me, not raids, and typically occurs somewhere between 5 and 7 consecutive clicks. I don’t think it’s my click speed (and it shouldn’t matter either way…). I thought may be I was clicking too quickly, but it still happens when I click slowly.

This morning was a minor revelation. When you log in, don’t use any energy or stam, just reload the page….surprise, if your experiencing what I am you will have less of both even though you have used none of either. Hope this gets fixed.

Topic: General / Bugs

Alright, this is beyond ridiculous. As I previously posted, this issue of disconnecting while questing is continuing. First thing this morning, all is well, down to 41 energy, I click a new battle (at 100% status) for 14 energy and get the disconnect message. I refresh, energy has dropped to 5, and the quest still stands at 100% reflecting no hit….

Devs: Is this problem occurring with anyone else? If so, is this problem being addressed? I have been enjoying the game, but this really puts a damper on the experience. It’s frustrating, but acceptable to some degree, to lose something you get for free by simply waiting for the energy bar to refill, but there is simply no way I will pay for energy, or anything else in this game, if purchased items have a tendency to simply disappear. Hope this gets worked out, otherwise I’ll just end up taking my badges and moving on to the next game.

Topic: General / Bugs

Several times now, I have been happily clicking away on a quest using up my energy, (twice in the last 10 minutes…) only to receive the message “connection lost…blahblahblah”. Ok, fine, it happens, but when I refresh all the energy is gone, but the quest damage is back where it was when I started clicking.

There is one way to absolutely guarantee I will invest no real currency in a game, and that is the disappearance of a commodity that is purchased with said money, repeatedly. Strongly suggest this gets rectified.

EDIT:

Another problem that just occurred (again), I had 104 Stam, obviously enough for 5 hits at 20 each, I got 4 hits then a message I needed to refill. I refreshed and the display said I had 15 Stam, should be enough for 3 hits of 5 each, right? No….I got one hit at 5 and the counter jumped down from 15 to 4……ludicrous…

Devs, you guys really need to address these problems, at this point I will not spend a single cent on this game, and I am sure I am not alone.

EDIT 2:

Ok, that makes 4 times today I have had the exact same problem, using energy, connection error, refresh/reload, enegy gone, damage where it was. The last two times I counted clicks and it happened on the 6th click both times, don’t know if that is relevant but it’s an interesting coincidence.

Hmmm, I hope to avoid any confusion with this individual going by the SN “Jesus”, since my SN is “jesus”, as in the name, not the deity…

Hi, bradmax: We can fully understand your feelings now, and we will consider and try to make the game fair. Thank you for your suggestion.

Thanks for making the effort address my post, as well as the posts of others.

However, I think something may have been lost in translation. My original post makes no mention of the fairness of the game.

My point is in regard to adding substance to the game such as more quests or entire new areas open to all players, or players at high levels that have acquired access to all the current areas.

There is more value in expanding the options of the majority of players than there is in counting on the obsessiveness of a minority willing to buy each and every gold item to be at the top of the players list.

When this is considered in light of the fact that those of us who can afford to buy gold items level up much faster than those that don’t buy gold, and stand to earn more of our gold back from sales of items we acquire but don’t need or want, I see the game running into 2 major concerns.

The first of these concerns is the frustration experienced by players that don’t buy gold, or buy very little of it, that results in people leaving the game since they feel they will never be strong competitors.

The second concern is that people who do buy gold will level quickly, proceed through the game quickly, and then tire of the game once it becomes solely about gaining levels rather than playing the game itself.

Basically, playing the game should come first and gaining levels should be reduced to little more than a result of playing, not the focus of the game.

That said, I do have a simple suggestion regarding day to day game play concerning the screen that comes up after a player wins a battle.

The window that appears and tells a player “You Win!” only has a close button on it, I think there should be another button that says “Repeat Battle”. This would be very helpful for battles that require beating an opponent multiple times. Much better than clicking “Close”, then clicking the location, then clicking the opponent again.

Thanks again for keeping an eye on the forums and posting responses, good communication is the foundation of every successful business.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Suggestion] Have a suggestion? This is the place.

Overall I am quite satisfied with the game, but admittedly, my experience with these types of games is very limited. This is the first one to hold my interest for any length of time.

That said, I guess my biggest concern as I gain levels is the prospects for expansion of the game. Fine tuning the game elements is necessary as well, but in my opinion nothing kills interest quicker than a game that devolves to nothing more than a leveling contest.

I understand that competition drives revenue, but I am equally aware that boredom kills it.

Keep up the good work. Hope to see CoG expand someday.

Not sure if it’s a bug or not, but I have only entered dungeons 3 times today yet I can’t enter anymore without using a key….It says you get 6 total entries per day, have I missed something somewhere?
