Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Stop saying nothing is wrong with the game

Still waiting on the fix to be able to hold more than 5 relics in your chamber of relics….been a week now and all I get is “we cannot reproduce the problem”. I know of at least 5 people having the same issue and it’s been over a week. I lost around 8 relics already so far cause of this.

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Stop saying nothing is wrong with the game

Plarium, take a look at the forum…it’s littered with people complaining about bugs, glitches, game mechanics, pricing, etc. etc.
You’re telling me those issues aren’t clear enough?

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Lighthouses Misreporting Target Ownership

Originally posted by Plarium_Support:

Captain, if the target’s status is “unclaimed” it doesn’t mean there are no reinforcements located there.

Please remember to scout before your Capture, and remember, that Targets can contain substantial reinforcements that can easily destroy your troops.

Sigh, it’s not about it being unclaimed, it’s about it not reporting correctly. In this case it WAS held by a player but REPORTED to be unclaimed.

[If someone put reinforcements there and no player is holding the target, you will not see who defended it in the report, just that it was defended. You will not receive a name nor do you receive coordinates.]

Please Plarium_support, know how the game works when you are providing support. It’s annoying to get misinformation and you will lose credibility :(

How about some new targets? Or at least a heads up on when new targets will be introduced? Being kept in the dark is annoying :(

it had nothing to do with the cache, it was a problem on your end. You fixed it after several hours, but please dont suggest something as generic as clearing cache for every single problem that pops up.

All good and dandy, but it’s not working, plain and simple. So you can describe to us how it should be working all day long, but it still doesn’t help us one bit…

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / How About some Reimbursement??

This is the response I got from a ticket:

As for the Smuggler’s Den discount situation, unfortunately, will not be able to offer a reimbursement, only assets lost when already in possession of the player are eligible for reimbursement.

so basically a big “screw you” in the face. If this is how they handle paying customers, I’m not spending another dime on it and I suggest you guys don’t either. Let them know/feel how it affects the cashflow if they pull stunts like this!!!

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Resource trade limitation

I could understand that trades should be kept at a limit, but this is ridiculous…for lower leveled players (or players focusing on other stuff than trading) the limit might be fine, but as you progress through the levels, trading becomes an intricate part of the game and it’s hurting the gameplay.

If you guys (Plarium) really want to limit trades in some way, make it researchable or scale it to level of player or level of market/HoN.
But I would still vote on like a 100 trade limit a day or so.

Yeah… $250 spent and can now 1 week later get the same thing for $100. You just robbed someone for $150 dollars in this scenario. There are a lot of people that bought at that price, and many much more than that, and you are not gonna even offer anything in return? You will lose a ton of paying customers if this isn’t resolved.

1 week later? try a day…

Topic: Galaxy Online / R.I.P Griz

I don’t read the forums much, but I didn’t expect such a sad message to be on it….
I’ve only fought Griz in IGL where he was a very strong opponent and I always wondered who was behind the player. Sadly, I never had the chance to even talk to him…

Condolences to his family and friends. I hope you are well!

Too much things in battle to calculate in few seconds, Such as :

Like how it is with IGL? That’s instant isn’t it?

Topic: Galaxy Online / Senary Gems

at the risk of starting a whole other branch of comments, but do you guys believe that f2p and ww should be able to compete with each other? I mean, should non-paying players be able to beat someone who spent say 2000 bucks?
I ask this question without any ill will towards anyone or anything, but it just seems that in go2 (and in so many other f2p games) people complain a lot about the gap between those 2 groups, while the whole concept of a f2p game exists around a portion of the playerbase paying for premium. If you want to compete on the same level as anyone else, find a game that does not have a premium shop :)
And I say “same level”, but even that isn’t true, is it? Time, experience, knowledge, intelligence, strategy, luck….all those things play a role. One of my motto’s is: “There will always be someone better than you. Accept it and be happy with what you have”

I also play a few games that are f2p (with premium options) where I dont spend a dime, simply cause it’s a whole other way of playing and sometimes even more fun to do :D But in those games I never expect to be able to compete with the “top dogs” (aka paying players) and the moment you are fine with that, it changes the entire game.

And one last thing: remember….there would not be f2p games without people willing to pay premium for premium :)

Topic: Galaxy Online / The Dictators and Constellations

Torq, I did not say it should outstat scorpio to win, hell, I was the first one doing all the scorpio instances without my highest comms, just cause I didn’t fell like changing ships or chips and stuff. what I said was that introducing a comm to the game they said for a year and a half would never happen (cause it was too powerful) and NOT being able to outstat a “simple” instance, is sorta false advertisement. it’s like “no no no, dont drop the atombomb! It’s too powerful! Oh nevermind, drop it…oh it tickles”
Anyways, I agree about the pvp bit…in a setting where it’s 1v1. Here, you’re talking (max) 60 fleets and it still relies heavily on tactics and sometimes luck on placement. And even then, there’s only 3 comms out that can resist procs and rex and dfa are already out of the picture nowadays with the titan comms and all.
Yes, there was a point in time where someone could beat anyone with a properly set up DFA, but those days are long gone…adding an upgraded version of it, only to be put to use properly as a tank (in pvp/champs/etc) is a waste imho.

Topic: Galaxy Online / The Dictators and Constellations

@Renegade, hey, there’s still people out there and since I don’t post on the forums a lot, I figured a small intro was in place :)
As I said, it’s not like Scorpio isn’t doable, but as far as most games go, there’s a point in the game where you reach the cap…max level, best gear, +’d everything to the moon, etc. and in most games, it means you can beat just about anything. Sure, there will be some bosses and what not, but just saying :)

I’m also not saying they should lower the stats on the consts just so I can outstat it with TD, but the whole idea of the comm is to outstat…the way the game is now, TD is only good for champs and maybe soloing h10’s or something :)

@Pinkie, thank you for your response. You could say it’s a pat on the back, you could also say that I’m stating a fact. And since the first bit was sorta an introduction, I felt it was the thing to do. Also, some pride might’ve been part of the equation…nothing wrong with being proud is there? ;)

@Mushi, I agree, but as renegade said, with the right ships and doing a few trial&error runs, you can easily do scorpio. If it’s THAT easy to do with let’s say mediocre “gear”, why wouldn’t the best “gear” be able to own it more?
[if a rusty dagger +2 can do it, a diamond double bladed kitana +15 should be able to do it way better :D]
and yes, I know, lame example, but oh well.

Topic: Galaxy Online / The Dictators and Constellations

I don’t write a lot on the forum cause I usually don’t have a lot of stuff to say, but I did want to say something this time….

So, those of you who don’t know me, I’m Plasmatique, leader of Requiem, the number 1 corp on server 3 (in terms of ranking) and affectionately called “the Governor” by a good few people. You could consider me to be one of the big spenders and well known in game, both loved and hated…:)

Recently IGG came forth with a new divine, called the Dictators…on paper one of the best commanders possible. It gets 5 extra points per level as well as the ability to cancel out the enemy commander’s abilities during combat (if the total stats are higher than the enemy). Essentially a beefed up version of the well known DFA.
Being the guy that I am, I had to get one and level it up. So, I’m now looking at a 9* commander with a 5/4.9 acc/dodge growth rate and all lvl V gems. Total stats: 2618 with 1193 accuracy and 1115 dodge.
I haven’t done any constellations in ages, mainly cause of work and the little play time I got at the moment, but I figured I’d give scorpion 01 a go. Mind you, I did all of em before (up to 04), but I figured It must be a lot easier now, now that I got that monster in my armada…
So, started the constellation and behold, my dictators was still getting outstatted by the HO’s, HH and Forsaken’s…

Ok, the scorpio constellations are still very well doable and all, but I figured with that commander, made to be able to make a real difference on the field, still gets outstatted by AI commanders. This makes the Dictators one of the lesser commanders to use in scorpio, which in my opinion is utter bull….

So, what do you guys think of all this? Did IGG go just a little too far with their ways of making it a challenge for veterans or do you guys feel this is still decently proportional to the game?

I’d like to hear your opinion guys!

There is no proof, simple as that. Just some people trying to be dicks cause they don’t like people being better than them.

Well, it seems that there’s an event now…but it was only days after Kongregate actually contacted them. And who’s to say that they (IGG) didn’t only do that to be able to keep the game running on Kong? I mean, still no response whatsoever on the forums or via e-mail…
I’ve lost all interest in it anyways…so whoever is gonna continue playing it, have fun!

I guess it’s clear IGG doesn’t care about the playerbase on FO2 here on Kongregate.
