Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Doom Bunnies! Official thread.

The Doom Bunnies are still looking for active players. We are regularly in the top 10 and with your help, we can continue that. Levels aren’t as important as being social, positive enthusiasm and active. AngelicKitten is our highest level player (and highest level in the whole game), so speak with her if you’re interested.

To the several applications in queue who are still waiting (but didn’t give their Kong name for a PM reply): If you’re really interested in joining, you also need to ask about the Bunnies in Room 2 and let your potential teammates get to know you first in there.

How do we know you’ll be active if the rest of us never see you online?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Doom Bunnies! Official thread.

The Doom Bunnies are one of the original leagues created about a year ago and we’re still going strong today.

We’re looking for active social chatty players right now. We have members all over the world, so it’s possible to find a guildmate in chat room 2 at any hour of the day or night (often 5-10 or more, which makes league brawls easy). Just drop into Room 2 and see for yourself. Why join a league that could go inactive next month when you can join the proven activity record of the Doom Bunnies?

Free players can use the Alchemy Lab to create Legendary cards at level 11 and Godlike cards at level 15. VIP = speed, not access. VIP just gives the same cards quicker.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Bug Reports - Official

There’s an issue with EFL not populating correctly. I lost the first match-up, but rather than going to the losing bracket, the other person in the bracket took up both slots. The clock in the corner would count down, then go to waiting, then count down again. The other person in the losing bracket was winning matches as their Wins on the chart would increment whenever they won.

Normally I don’t worry about losing EFL tickets or draft packs, but there’s been a recently consistent series of bugs with EFL and Drafts that effectively kick me out mid-game over and over.

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / Cerebral Destroyer Update

I’m using an eight year old computer with Radeon X300 (RV370) graphics while my laptop is getting fixed and I’ve got no lag on Celebration Enhancer or any animated raids.

Perhaps it’s not the animation? Maybe it’s having 15 tabs open to other pages along with 10 different programs running in the background on the system bar that is eating up resources?

anyway i ask you very nicely. in fact i beg of you to please include an option that allows us players to turn off animations. (both here and in DotD) because i can barely hit a celebration enhancer because it is sooooooooo laggy. this might also help a bit in the WR .

I thought “deal 1” meant deal an extra card to you, which would make OtB and Too Fast even stronger. If it’s just damage, that’s still more helpful for NS.

Duels are useful just to see how other people are putting various cards together.

This will give you a guaranteed 1 duel point very quickly- though victories can give you 6 points.

If you concede you gain a point? Seriously? Is that true in Clash too?

Does this gaining of a point on a loss heavily change how players approach PVP here over attitudes shown in Clash?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] So is PvP still...

LDE and PM only cause headaches for those with starting sized decks.

I still don’t have a Painful Memories card. So I’ve been focusing on growing the size of my deck (requires no luck) and that amazes me at how well it works at fending off most LDE and PM attacks.

It’s a simple counter with a card you can pick up in Glory Packs: Finishing Blow. The bigger deck allows you to absorb the LDE attack, which you in turn use Finishing Blow to throw the 25 card damage back at them. The larger the deck, the better this works. I’ve had someone hit me with two LDEs in a row (with On the Bubble or NS badge) which made my Finishing Blow twice as strong (much like a Painful Memories). It also works well with Strongharm bonuses.

Even without a Finishing Blow in hand, I’ve had nukes like LDE and PM deck out their users instead of me because the nuke hit a “damage on deplete” landmine card like Splash Damage.

This one simple strategy has changed PVP dramatically for me. Once you hit them once with their own cards, they often aren’t so quick to play LDE or PM. It also takes longer to get to the midway point in my deck for PM to be a sure win. Plus, I can fire off my deplete pile whenever I want before the halfway point to prevent PM from doing massive damage.

I’m keeping track of my PVP wins for the next week to see how often nukes are played. So far, I’ve been winning a considerable amount against LDE and PM decks. Also, Abyss gets talked about much more than gets used. In 56 matches, Abyss has been only used by three people.

Thus, any talk about about Acolyte badges being useless because of the Abyss is silly, since the Acolyte primary badge also has the best chance of depleting the Abyss out of their deck with each card played. And that extra damage that Abyss does due to Allies? Remember that the large deck + Finishing Blow strategy works just as well there too. Worried that Acolytes don’t do much damage? Wait until your opponent does wild damage and then throw it back at them. This works on many levels. (Just don’t tell anyone else that it’s so much easier to finish off people when they spend points on auto-pilot or mementos or Abyss & Moxboxes or anything else besides a larger deck. We’ll keep it as our little secret. ;) )

The new set of cards helps aco a bit but you need to have a lot of the allys to make it work efficiently. tbh, I don’t use any of the new allys because of my ally limit(6) and I feel its too small for the new upstarts and stuff to be worthwhile.

You don’t need a high ally limit, because Shimmerstorm: Upstart creates a copy of herself whenever you use her, so you can create a wave of allies well beyond your limit to take advantage of the new “For every Upstart” bonuses.

Originally posted by RedeemedWahrior:

lol my experience seems to be quite different.

lastly, I found acolytes to actually be the easiest to fight against, the simple reason being the existence of neighbourhood watch. Because that card pretty much renders allies useless (especially with the recent change stripping them of badge effects as well), people tend to not use a lot of allies in pvp, which renders aco ally badge powers pretty much moot. Their recovery 1-2 also seems about as useless as the nonstop deplete 1-2 at endgame. They are pretty much nothing to do with their badge powers in pvp at all, effectiveness being almost entirely determined by what cards they have in their deck. (granted if you dont have nwatches and the acolyte is loaded up on allies i can see why you would have a problem, but other than that…)

and well, every class but firesculptor actually gets screwed on some of their secondary badges. Making an attack unstoppable as a badge power is a joke. The percentage may be higher than the crits or the 2x or the copies, but its worth is far far less since if you’re a sane player, you’ll almost never ever play a high damage attack vs a high shielded enemy (which is the only time being unstoppable gives you a decent boost). so what ultimately results is like a 3% chance per badge rank to do a few points of extra damage, since you’ll be using your low damage cards when the enemy is heavily shielded, and your high damage cards when the enemy has low shields.

Are you still using Neighborhood Watch? I don’t see it that often now with the new set out. I pulled out half my NW’s to make room for cards in the new set. Also, I see much more ally use in people’s decks with Susie:Antihero and the new Upstarts out.

Yes, I regularly use high damage cards against heavily shielded opponents, because a good Strongharm deck keeps them heavily shielded. If I wait too long without trying to overwhelm their shielding, their consistent medium damage will grind down (especially if they have raised their other badges for the unstoppable and higher crit ratings). The addition of cards like Hard Target only further buff the Strongharm level of shielding.

Originally posted by LordBucket:

Kind of agree that the descriptions here are more what the classes are “supposed to be” rather than how they actually are.

A few observations:

  • From badge level 4 and up, nonstops have just as much of a power badge damage bonus as strongharms and it’s only one or two points or damage.
  • Additionally, the value of shields is a bit overstated. Point for point, replenish is almost always better than shields because both unstoppable and depletion effects ignore shields.
  • Like FinalCheetah says, firesculpters being weak to strongharms is just not true. +1 or +2 shields can’t stand up to double damage.
  • I think the fragility of firesculpters has been seriously overstated. How are they fragile? In pve, brawl bosses routinely do 15-20 damage. It’s not like the extra point or two of shields or replenish that other classes get makes any difference. And in pvp, they do enough damage to overcome the shields that other people put up. How is it “fragile” to do 8 damage and put up zero shields against an opponent that only does 6 damage and puts up two shields?
  • Since nonstops have gaurunteed armor-ignoring damage from deplete, they can sit back with high armor/healing cards and wear away their opponents. Regardless of the extra 1 or 2 armor bonus strongharms get from their power badge, in actual practice nonstops are far more functional as a high shields “tanking” class than strongharms are.
  • Acolytes, so far as I can tell, are the strongest pvp class. I routinely lose to acolytes even 20 levels lower than me, and others I’ve spoken to have said the same. Saying they don’t have any particular advantage against anyone just doesn’t seem accurate. They appear to have an advantage against everyone, but only in pvp.

Are these observations continuing to hold true a month later?

For example, I don’t see many non-stops sitting back with high armor/healing cards. Non-stops I’ve seen lately tend to be aggressively high damage seeking, acting like firesculpters with extra cards given to play each round.

Do Acolytes continue to hold such a PVP lead with the new set out?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] A Plea: Make the Game work on FireFox!

Could you also write your plea to the Firefox developers/programmers as well?

Firefox is well known as being the slowest and least stable browser for Flash. Mozilla (the makers of Firefox) have decided to focus on HTML 5 as a replacement for Flash and other newer web tech, so they have ignored improvements with older apps like Flash (perhaps in the hopes that people will stop using Flash).

No matter how they tweak the game, it’s still dependent on the browser to handle it well.

You can check your own system via Flash benchmarks at http://www.snailsanimation.com/benchmark08_play.php to see if it’s the game, or if its your browser choking.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] State of the Game: August 2012

Since I can’t log on to the LoH official forum, I’ll echo my thoughts on this thread on here:

Quote byTFoot on LoH Forum:


I’d love to see leagues open up to more than 25 people. If we had 100 people in a league, it’d be MUCH easier to get league brawls together. See: LoTS and DotD.

Getting 5/25 together for Firerazer is pretty tough. Even getting 3/25 together can be challenging. If we had 100, we’d be able to get way more league brawls together. And, since everyone only gets 1 free per 24 hours… we’d be able to do a lot more of them.

I’m all for increasing it to 50 or 100.

Please don’t make it any larger than 25 as it’s easier to remember 25 people as actual personalities instead of 50 or a 100. 25 people in a league works so much better for group dynamics than anything bigger.

Active leagues are more due to active leaders making room for the most active players than the arbitrary size of the league. Specifically, the biggest engine driving the activity level is the leader’s willingness to open up spots for regularly active players by removing those players who aren’t so active, not the size of the league. The more people the league online, the more people want to join, so activity handles itself in a positive feedback loop.

For example, the Doom Bunnies are one of the most active leagues (with 12+ players online regularly).

That’s because of league slots being opened after someone hasn’t logged on after 48 hours (unless advance notice of vacation or other busy time) along with all the extra steps that the founder (LordBucket) has taken to keep it focused and active:

*He’s immediately accessible by his regular presence in the chat room. Thus you can ask him live in person about joining (instead of the usual application system, which a leader might not check regularly or never respond back with why they didn’t accept you).

*The league chat wall is used mostly to point out that there’s a specific (non-default) Kong chat room that everyone should meet.

*There’s even league slang used to further reinforce in-group identification (like using “anybunny looking for a brawl?” instead of “anybody looking for a brawl?”) Otherwise, asking for a league brawl in real-time chat without such identifiers is confusing, like asking “Is Mike here?” and having multiple Mikes ask you which one.

If you have regular members in your league, then quit your old league and start one yourself. That way you can control how many live players you have by having the power to recruit fresh players regularly. Otherwise, 100-size leagues are going to have the same percentage of inactives with much more diffuse group identity.

As a Doom Bunny, I’ve has no problem getting multiple league brawls every night for almost a month. They are often chains of brawls where everyone takes turns hosting a brawl after running in another member’s brawl. Even with 24-hour cooldowns, it often reaches multiple copies of the each brawl boss each night traded between members times the number of league brawls and open brawls. You do the math on how many brawls that is each night. I’ve run out of energy before I run out of slots in other league member’s brawls.

(Not that you have to show up for them. Just hop on every couple days whenever you can. There’s no set schedule for the league.)

Or if you don’t want to start your own league and do the work it takes to keep it active, you can always talk to LordBucket in Kongregate chat #2 about getting on their waiting list. There’s always new slots opening. (The trick is to be there to ask.)
