Topic: Rise of Mythos / Fuse bug or only the unluckiest player?

Originally posted by Baerk:

I personally gotten 3 last stands, 2 swift raids, 1 arma, and 1 guardian angel before reaching lvl 70. I also had a guildie that got armagedon in his first week of playing with only a mere 1 slot lab (most retarded luck of all possibly). It just boils down to dumb luck and sheer lab refreshes.

I’m not sure if this is the case for other older players, but I USED to get a reasonable frequency of getting legends in the lab, I have gotten at least 3 of everything except 2 swift raids, but I have gotten zero legends in over a year. Did the rate drop or just luck for me too? Interesting to hear others on this.

Are we too demanding?

Are you cringing at the backlash KG-1 has been holding because they have gotten zero input from anyone in Gamefuse about this un-merge?

Did we bake you cookies you weren’t down with?

Let us help you help this.

Wait times are not the reason we are seeking to be separated from KG. Equal competition is what we are seeking. There are multiple servers, we don’t have to be the stepchild in our current situation.

Let’s flip this equation; Who would you like the KG server to fight if everyone unmerges from them? Is it their fault they are the original server? It’s a bit of a catch-22 atm.

Here’s a great idea for PVP, unmerge server to increase the wait times to the point people will stop playing completely!

O… I C U already did that. shucks.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Please fix the blacksmith

You pay 100 gold per attempt at lvl 16. You can not use rubies. The more attempts it takes, the more likely the person trying will eventually have to pay for the gold to make the attempts. This is profit. Not sure how that is hard to fathom, let’s just agree to disagree, this is not getting us anywhere.

Of course confirmation bias is still cold comfort when I have failed roughly 50 combines in a row to get ANY of my gear lvl 16.

Also, regardless of what the community manager says, there are things built into the system that the devs can use to ALTER percentages. Anyone else remember when event packs kept only dropping certain legends, etc? Don’t tell me that is perfect RNG.

The fact is most P2W games have a plethora of sliders on different things that can be tweaked to increase or decrease percentages to help maintain the monetary stream.

To be fair those instances where bugs on the initial release of the pack and were fixed afterwards (Dark elf in mythos packs, for example)

I maintain my stance that altering the blacksmith percentages could only possibly stand to hurt their monetary stream.

Edit: Mal also has no reason to deceive any of you. He doesn’t get paid by Gamefuse and is also a paying player on my server. Pretty much all player concerns are in his best interest so don’t try to push any conspiracy bullshit out there.

The fact that a ‘bug’ could do such a thing as change what your pack % or rewards are only highlights my point on how easy it is to do. It even happens by accident. The same behaviour has been chronicled in other P2W games, why would you think RoM is exempt?

I don’t believe Mal was trying to deceive anyone, and I don’t believe I implied it. I am sure he used the tools given to him and I am sure they worked perfectly. Was he given all the tools used by the devs? Probably not.

Listen, I love RoM as much as anyone, but if you think that all values in this game are strictly by RNG then that is your opinion, I respect that, I just don’t agree with it.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / soul summoner cards glitch

People are always in a hurry to tell you you are wrong and they are right. That’s why they keep repeating themselves, no time to read anyone else’s reply, just gotta make sure and tell you you are WRONG.

Take solace in the fact you made someone feel good about themselves for a little bit though, they needed it obviously!

Topic: Rise of Mythos / No goals after lvl 10 guild

Welcome to our world.

LoA has been lvl 10 for months, MONTHS, we put up the same post as this when it happened and we realized we had plateaued, and we got 0 response.

The good thing is people can leave and come back to the guild without any penalty now though :)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Bug: Knock back fail

Originally posted by Squall83:

Oh boy, this is really sad, but thanks for explaining it to me. A company that manages a software without the nuts-and-bolts guys? This will lead to trouble in the future. There should be at least one person who knows his way around the deep-downs of the software, i.e. someone who knows more than how to add new cards, bosses, quests and events.

But what do you mean “they sold the rights to quite a few companies”? How many companies are using software based on the RoM engine?

I am not exactly sure, but I do know there are multiple versions of this game out that are being run by different companies. And not all the versions have exactly the same card pool. It makes things confusing for sure.

Are you referring to the couple of battlefield skills that sell for 10g each? Or are their other ones as well?

Malucifer

Battlefield ones, I sent mods proof as well as as it is happening a long time ago along with the individuals who are doing it. Nothing has come from it, it has not been addressed and no rubies have been refunded.

If you didn’t want to sell a card for 10g, why didn’t you list it for more than 10g?

Mal, refund his 38 rubies or whatever so he will let it go! :P

Well, it was a little more! But yeah ill let it go if they actually address it

sorry, 48 rubies.

Seriously, it tells you what price you are selling for. Just because you condition yourself to click as fast as possible through screens doesn’t mean you should get refunded. Tell you what though, since I have seen you complaining about this for quite some time, put up a crap card, tell me what it is, and I will buy it for 50 gold to make it up, ok?

Originally posted by Squall83:

Ah, better servers and such? Yeah, I noticed that around Christmas when a bunch of new players joined everything became really slow.

If by expanding you mean promotion though that would be a different department. That can be done in parallel, because you shouldn’t task engineers with promotion and vice versa. I am a software developer myself and I would hate to be tasked with marketing and stuff. In theory it’s possible, but it will be like playing Warcraft III and telling your peons to go to battle. “That’s it, I’m dead.”

The people who actually work on the nuts-and-bolts of the game are Chinese, and this is an old game for them now, they already sold the rights to quite a few companies, so it is hard to get them to address these sorts of glitches.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Bug: Knock back fail

yep, and you can’t place on the spot, just like with your creature bug.

Sadly, the only fix is to refresh. It sucks, but unfortunately there are a lot more pressing things on the devs plate atm, like expanding the player base.

It’s not very efficient, almost not worth doing. I have tried. Thanks for the suggestion though :)

HINT HINT: sure would be nice to use crystals in the forbidden zone.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Is change taken seriously (or possible) in the game?

Thahealer, you are kind of weird. you ask to get your voice heard, blind give you an option, and then you say

’As for QQ manager…I suppose I asked for it, but I have no plans to download software and learn to use a new tool to make my voice heard over a video game. It is, after all, just a video game. It’s something I do in my free time and, quite frankly, it’s easier to type ‘ccg’ in the kong search box and look for something else to play. THE IMPETUS IS ON ROM TO EARN MY TIME AND MONEY, NOT ON ME."

So basically you want other people to carry the torch, you want change in the game, but you don’t care enough to do it yourself.

ok……..

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Bug: Knock back fail

These have been there since the game started. Although I wish for it to get fixed as well, they have been happening for TWO YEARS. My personal favourite is the never ending bone-heap.

Just take your time, and think about things, if something is acting funny, chances are it’s working correctly and it is just a visual glitch.

Part of the game, I hate to say.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Giving out Crystal as a prize

I would say over half of the people playing would rather something else.

For instance, I have my buildings maxed out, so the only real use of crystal for me is for runes. I have a million crystals sitting around and no use for them

Can you at least make them useful for something else?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / What is killing the game? (the most)

This is interesting.

Another problem I have found is some whales are grimly determined to get their money’s worth and will play for 7-8 hours straight, sitting in the queue for upwards of 20 minutes at a time to get a match. It makes it hard for regular ftp to get their games in without immediately matching with a whale, and they end up not bothering.
