Great changes. Thank you Developers.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Define "male"

Who cares? Unless we are going to allow this to degenerate into into a “Transman” or a “Transwoman” conversation. Didn’t we all come here for fun? To escape the pressing issues of everyday life? Certainly not to debate individual moral issues. Has anyone asked Merman his gender? LOL. Who cares?

I respect Codename for listening to community feedback and letting us get some preview on the upgrade shop, and I recommend them to never attempt to repair clunky game mechanics with this sort of method.

Perhaps something is lost in translation as this poster suggests. I am not sure what he is talking about at all as he is unclear as to the nature of his objection.

Personally I find the recent upgrades to be of great benefit to those of us that have been here for several months and accumulated several thousand idols. I applaud the developers for this upgrade which I find to be of great benefit. Well done!

Short answer: No.

Long answer: If you feel gold bonus is too strong then you should play without panda for the rest of the year (like in one of the newer objectives).

I like this guy. LMAO. Please…..

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Remove Click buffs from Jeweled Chests or I'm done paying (post if you agree)

This thread is hilarious. Some guy is miffed because he gets buffs that don’t suit him. Really? Give me a break. This is one of the fairest games I’ve played between coiners and non-coiners and some nit-wit is upset because he spent a few coins and is unhappy because he didn’t hit the Power Ball. Go away please. I don’t see those “whales” that are dropping major coins complaining. This thread is nothing more than another example of the tired old argument between the producers and takers that has gone on for years. If you are so unhappy then just leave, please, just show a little class and go away.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Dragons of Atlantis] Sanctuary Dragon Upgrade Error

Update: I have no idea why but the upgrade function is now working again. The only additional action I took was to clean my registry and remove all game related files forcing a total reload.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Dragons of Atlantis] Sanctuary Dragon Upgrade Error

I cannot upgrade sanctuary dragons any longer. When I attempt to do so I receive a message of “The specified queue is full” but I have not other upgrades in process. I have cleared my browser and refreshed numerous times. Help please. Thanks.

I also tried to upgrade from a different computer and I still receive the same error. Thanks.

This appears to be a known bug that has not been fixed:

I’ve only been playing for a few weeks. Must be terribly frustrating for folks that have invested substantial time or money.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Pirates: Tides of Fortune] Gonna ask for the last time...

Close the game down on Kong? I hope that they are prepared to make refunds. Beyond that, all I will say is that the game has serious logic issues at least for a small player base on this single server; take the market for instance, no logic to values whatsoever.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Event] Kid Week

This is not the kind of event that brings in players or gets them to stay.

It could have been fun if we could grind for the seeds, as Q suggests, but you don’t mention it. Most of us don’t consider a chance to spend $$$ as a “real” event.

We are sorry for your situation. Please trust us the drop is the same to each player and we didnt change ie, good items always are very hard to get. So we need try more times, you will get them finally. We hope you will get drop what you like sooner.

This is an absolute bold faced untruth. CoG has a history of introducing new weapons and other items that drop with some degree of acceptable frequency and then nerfing the drop within 24 to 36 hours afterwards. I call bullshit and I am calling CoG a liar.

Topic: Call of Gods / Easter Egg - Hammer

Hi, why is it that every event you do, CoG, there is some comment, confusion, or question about the event. Have you ever been able to pull off a single event without causing angst, frustration, and trepidation amongst your players?

Topic: Call of Gods / [New Feature]Equip Enhance

It’s time for this game die…totally. And for all players to receive some pro-rata credit towards the developer’s new game. This game is flawed and certainly ill conceived. The logic is ill-computed and the systems are horribly designed. In short, the game is a genetic dwarf that cannot possibly grow to adulthood.

It’s a dead deal and anyone putting money into it is a fool.

Yada…yada…yada….Most of us agree….one year ago to most of you suggestions. Cog simply doesn’t care about player’s comments. Carry on though…you have my full support.

Ok, so I’m getting shards WAY more frequently than before so I retract my earlier post. I’m curious though if/what the level difference that removes shards from dropping at egg bosses…?

Usually, the higher mobs you challenge, the more likely you will gain useful items from them.

Let me translate….“Nothing of value drops…” This is classic GoG.

It will be a good question if you ask it at the same time next week.

One of the many faces of CoG. This is the one that should be on stage.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Event] Score Master

The other problem is that some people who aren’t aware of the Score event at the reset before maintenance (since CoG never announces events before the reset) will have already used up their Purgatory Abyss runs, dungeon runs, and Bounty Quests before the event starts.

Regardless of a ranking aspect to the event, those people lose 1 day’s worth of Score. This wouldn’t be a problem if Score were a permanent feature, but it’s a limited opportunity gain.

Nobody wants to get 100 less Score just for not being in a competition.

I will quote a guy from official forums:
Don’t do your abyss, or dungeons before maint notice on thursdays.

This has been said many times. It’s a CoG pattern. You figure out why.

Your “dummy” comment leads to many possible comments with respect to CoG and its management.

Topic: Call of Gods / Fantasy Dungeon

Yup, you can’t enter Fantasy Dungeons. Does that surprise anyone?

I guess they couldn’t figure out how to make the score event work for Fantasy and just bugged it.

I am being facetious….sort of.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Feature] Fantasy Dungeon

Originally posted by DaemonVower:

Like I said though, that’s been CoG’s strategy for the entire time you and I have been playing. Examples!

Imagine how deathstorm felt after spending thousands on OJ gems right before Christmas 2011.

Or the spenders who actually bought Inspiring Lights and high level Skill Books, or Sky Hammers, right before Abyss was released.

Or people who bought Mat Chest 2 praying for an OJ transmute item, only for people to start hitting Layer 4.

Or people who spent a ton competing for Gold Medals in the Olympic Games, only to have red Medals suddenly become incredibly available from almost every event and twice daily from the World Boss (I got hit by this one).

Red Gems have been slowly on this path since Abyss started dropping them, and now it has accelerated with Dungeons having them in the drop table.

The current big one is FD and RR, as you note, which some wasted butt-tons on either in Recharge events or trying to Advanced Transmute. And inevitably the next one will be for people who spent thousands to get Jesus Gear as activated ability weapons slowly become available for normal players. Hell, if the 110 red val gear wasn’t a blatant lie that would be happening now.

It’s inevitable, since CoG is forced to continually power creep to keep the free masses interested. But that means inevitably previous spender gear becomes common, which means that spender gear must power creep even more, which means spenders have to re-spend to get it. Free players are happy with the cycle, and people who are ABOUT to spend are happy with the cycle, and those are the two constituencies that matter to CoG. People who once spent a bunch but no longer are bring nothing to the table from their perspective, except to the extent that it incentivizes other people to spent to beat them or causes them to re-buy to stay afloat… which plays into the power creep treadmill perfectly. I’m sure we can both think of examples of both of those behaviors rather readily :v The circle of CoG is very effective.

Once again, DV, you have nailed the issue. Alas, I fear no one listening to you.
