Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Leaving Heroes of Gaia for Guild Wars 2

Why GW2 when I have not even played the game. That is a good question and one I do not have a good answer for. During one of the many times HoG was down I spent a lot of time looking at videos of new MMOs and the only one that I kept coming back to was GW2. Everything I read and watched about this game made it look like one I would personally like and the more information I found the more I liked the game. I realize that not everyone will like GW2 and do not want to think of myself as so presumptious to think that everyone in HoG will like GW2. I am simply trying to see if enough of us are going to play such that it would make sense to create a guild. In fact I realize a lot of people are going to play Diablo 3 and some of the other games you listed.

Since I have now prepurchased the game I will get to participate in the remaining weekend beta events and am looking forward to finally getting my hands on the game to play it first hand. As far as arena net being greedy I think you should look more into their company. Of course they are out to make money but they also have long supported guild wars and in a very refreshing change their developers and staff are very active on facebook, twitter and the forums. Will I spend extra money on Guild Wars 2? Sure I have no problems spending money on a game that I enjoy but I do not like pay 2 win and so far I do not see that gw2 will follow that model.

Most people who pay any attention to global know that I am going to be playing Guild Wars 2, in fact I have already pre-purchased the game. If you do not know anything about guild wars 2 then watch this little video and get caught up: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzEqJAg8460

If you are going to play guild wars 2 and are interested in playing with people from HoG please let me know, by either posting here or pming me. I really do not know how many server wide will be playing to know if it is even worthwhile to make a guild over there. I just know that while I have slowly grown to despise snail I like most of the players and would love to continue playing with you all.

So if you are interested in making a guild in Guild Wars 2 please let me know.

Just updated my flash player did not uninstall and reinstall but all of the kong games work fine – otherwise I would be in more of a withdrawal :P

Topic: Technical Support / Kong Chat not working

Since yesterday afternoon I have not been able to access kong chat. It just says joining room. I tried clearing cache and all the normal stuff but none of that seems to work. Tried it both ie and chrome.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Atlantis + Pangea Merge Details

Details: Servers will go down for maintenance as usual (10:00 PM PDT on Wednesday night), and will be brought back up at 1:00 AM PDT Thursday morning.

I feel like a broken record here, we all know from the three or four (lost count now) past mergers that you all cannot do it in three hours. So for fairness to ALL players why cant you pull it down for 6 or 8 hours so you all can ensure you do it correctly and then launch the servers at a specific time so that all players can log in when the server comes back on line.

Thank you in advance for listening to this request.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Can we haz expansion plox?

It would be nice for any news to come from the grand pubbas other than their generic we are working on this game but do not want to give firm dates cause you will hold us to those dates. The only impression snail has left us with over the past six months is that of complete abandonment. Even on their main forum people are asking if anyone even works for snail USA anymore due to the lack of interaction.

It used to be that we looked forward to the weekly maintenance updates just to find out what was the next promo snail would be running. We had a glimer of hope when snail posted that management had changed and new things would be coming but then unfortunately nothing came. Our hopes were then brightened again over Christmas when snail finally ran some holiday events but since then it has been all quiet again.

We still remain hopeful that snail can make this the great game it has potential for and clearly is across the globe, but that starts with caring about your players.

Any news on the time of guild battles yet?
With the daily event of 2x XP from 13:00 to 14:00 and 2x Arena record from 00:00 to 12:00 on weekends non-american players at least had a small compenstation for not being able to take advantage of happy hour.
Now that the monthly events finally seem to have expired, both daily events start at 20:00 server time.
Pretty unfair, as me and some others already complained.
Imo a solution for this has to be found and implemented fast, a few good ones have already been made.

The reason that we have the times set up like we currently do is that these server are the dedicated North American servers, and run on that time. We have servers in Europe that follow European time, which may work a little better for European players.

Ok this comment amazes me, because my interpretation of this is we do not care about Europeans because we are a North American server and maybe you should go to a European server. There are a lot of European players on the Kong servers and one would think that HOG would want to cater to all of their players. I too do not understand why the guild battles are during 1/2 AP and the time for capitol battles. Seems like a time earlier or later could have been chosen so that all of these events do not overlap.

Also North America covers six time zones itself so a little variety in timing may even be more convenient for the North American players you are catering towards.
