Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Goblin!!!

I just got the update (I use an Android), and found a silver goblin. I got 200 coin, an upgrade card (silver I believe, it gives +12 dust), and a Knowledge card. I am very happy with this (I don’t have a Knowledge card yet so it is very helpful for me).

I was able to beat the silver goblin, and I only just finished the 1st portal (so have only 1 Bear GCC and a couple of Ottos as my only notable cards).

It is also important to note that it showed up in the Coven (2nd map), where I only have each of the 4 bosses beat 1 time (so bronze-1 if you will). I mention this as this shows that you can have a higher level goblin than what you have unlocked. It also shows that you only need to have unlocked the area (not fully beat it to onyx-3 on all bosses), at least for the silver goblin.

Thanks!

Was it obvious where the goblin was? Or did you have to hunt for it (was it hidden)?

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Question about the Master's Apprentice card...

Thanks. I haven’t unlocked them all at the Onyx level yet.

And I don’t know why I would want to fuse a defense card. I was more asking if it can be done (I just got the card and haven’t even upgraded it yet… so honestly didn’t know what its fused power was…. it is my first diamond FF).

Topic: Technical Support / Odd Question

I am not sure what you mean by a “channel”. However if you are wondering if Kongregate will ever have the game “DOTA 2” (Defense of the Ancients 2, I assume) on its website, you need to pose that question to the game’s developers.

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Question about the Master's Apprentice card...

So I just got gold mastery of the 1st map and got the Master’s Apprentice card. I sort of assumed if I beat the 1st map all at the onyx level I would get a second that I can use to fuse… but it doesn’t seem that this will be the case. Am I correct about this?

If so, is there any other way to get another Master’s Apprentice card? If not, am I correct that there is no way to fuse this card? And I guess should I assume that the Master Alchemist is the same way for the 2nd map?

Thanks in advance,
Pip

I hope you weren’t talking about me there. Because I have currently earned a sum total of zero gems on Supersonic offers. Just because I can’t earn gems by spending time on these offers doesn’t mean I want to rob other people of the chance to earn them, or rob Chinzilla from a method of earning revenue (which only leads to further development of the game). So you might want to stop making general assumptions on who is or is not impacted by “the inability to earn as many gems as other people” “issue”. If you were not referring to me, I apologize. My assumption that you were is due to the fact that you posted right after my reply and didn’t address your response to someone else specifically.

If you enjoy the game, then play it. If you don’t then don’t. But don’t whine about how XXXX player or group has an “unfair” advantage because they spend more money or live in some other part of the world. Just play the game.

Honestly, you can give any kind of argumentation, but you can’t say that’s fair if I can gain 2 free Gems in a month, and you there gain 40 free Gems a week. Sorry, but it isn’t.

You can also make the same claim that minimum wage in the United States is $7.50 USD per hour (and you can get this by cleaning or working in the fast food industry) but to do the exact same work for the exact same amount of time in a country like the Philippines you would get the equivalent of $0.67 USD. It is just the way the world economy is. A vendor in the Philippines can’t afford to pay Supersonic as much as a US vendor can for an ad, so neither can Supersonic pay Chinzilla the same amount, so neither can Chinzilla afford to give the same amount of gems.

What you want is a global economic revolution. I don’t think Chinzilla will be able to deliver this. What is next, you wanting Chinzilla to lower the price of gems for countries with a poor conversion rate vs the US Dollar?

TL.DR: Life isn’t fair. You should move on.

-Pip

PS – Please tell me how I can get 40 gems per week (even in a location like the US) for free. I will grant you that I might be able to get 40 gems in one week one time… but not every week (or even 2 in a row).

Saved just fine for me (SFH 3). I would make sure you are not deleting or blocking your cookies. Also make sure you are not deleting your data from within the game.

I also told that Chin can’t talk with Supersonic.
But what Chin can do is offer gems to us directly based on the disparity. Did I make my post clear? Do read between the lines.

Why would Chin give away free gems to people based on what region they live in? Who do you propose will pay for these gems? It is not Chin’s fault that some areas are paid fewer gems. I would take this complaint up with Supersonic.

If this is the only game it happens to, I suggest that you contact the developer. If you have not recently tried other games, I would play a few just to make sure it doesn’t happen to them as well.

Hi Chin . if the goblin location changes everyday will it affect my boss grinding?

Originally posted by ChinzillaInc:

There will be no energy cost for the goblin. Each player will get one chance per day to defeat the goblin if they have that location unlocked on the map.

So it does not sound like it will interrupt or impact grinding, other than to give you potentially 1 more fight where you can gain XP or coins once per day.

I am not sure I understand. But if you have a problem with a TrailPay offer (in the Free Kreds section), you need to contact TrailPay. Look for the big, red “Support” button in the top right.

No estoy seguro de entender . Pero si usted tiene un problema con una oferta TrailPay (en la sección libre Kreds ) , es necesario ponerse en contacto con TrailPay . Busque el botón grande, rojo “Soporte” en la parte superior derecha .

What are some other games this happens to?

Can you show a screen shot of your browser window when it freezes (be sure to scroll all the way up so we can see your profile bar, and make the window large enough to see below the game area)?

Topic: Technical Support / Question about iframe game

These questions are better asked in the developer area. In fact #1 is answered in the developer FAQ (no, you can’t have in game advertising save for the “opt in” advertising provided by Kongregate in which you award the player with some small reward in game). If your question #2 is about spending money, that question is also “no” (you should use kreds).

Topic: Technical Support / Forum thread broken at page 929

It is a known bug. I believe it is due to the forum software not handling deleted posts right. If you give it some time it will fix itself. You can also go to page 929 manually by putting the page number at the end of the URL (like this: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/7100-continuous-games/topics/212781-the-list?page=929).

Topic: Technical Support / Can anyone help, or not?

As Adv0catus says, you can mute the user, which will instantly eliminate all the clutter from chat and allow you to communicate with others in peace. You can also report the user via their profile, and the admins will take action.

There is already the ability to create your own private room if you are a K+ user (or if anyone that plays CW with you is a K+ user, you can all join his/her room).

Other than this, if you have a suggestion on what new functionality you want incorporated into chat, you can make the suggestion in the suggestion thread.

As you say…

Originally posted by CelticPredator:
BTW: This is technical problem not technical issue.
Admins can stop this only if they want to improve chat rooms

So, I would encourage you to post potential solutions to your problem in the suggestion thread. Since this isn’t a technical issue, I see no further need to post here.

Thanks,
Pip

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Rerolled, help me wreck Anna.

I wanted to share my progress on Anna.

I recently rerolled after coming back to the game after a year (and missing all the portal events), and after about 6 weeks of grinding I came up with the following deck (I probably overdid it a bit as I didn’t lose to Anna at all, and finished with 4 days left in the event).

Silver Combo Cards

  • Superhero x 3 (all level 3)
  • Chinchilla x 3 (all level 3)
  • Knight x 3 (all level 3)
  • Magic x 3 (all level 3)
  • Sword x 3 (all level 3)
  • Wizard x 3 (all level 3)
  • Prehistoric x1 (level 3)

Bronze Combo Cards

  • Metal x 3 (all level 4)
  • Undead x 3 (all level 4)
  • Rainbow x 3 (all level 2)
  • Dragon x 3 (all level 2)
  • Elf x 1 (level 2)

Final Form Cards

  • Otto x 3 (all level 5 unfused)

Prep Strategy

  • I leveled past 50 to get the Silver CC from level rewards (and to get 30 health).
  • I farmed the 1st two Castle levels to get 3 of each Silver CC (save Superhero and Chinchilla)
  • I was lucky to get a Superhero and Chinchilla from packs.
  • I was lucky to get a Prehistoric from the Arena Chest one time.
  • After getting the Silver CCs I needed, I farmed Otto in the Castle looking for him.

Notes

  • Prehistoric, while nice, wasn’t needed. So don’t worry about getting one.
  • The weakest card I felt was the dragons. I never liked getting them. If I had to do it over, I would probably replace with Elf and have 1 Dragon. When I got Bear from tier 20, I pulled a Dragon to make room.
  • I would suggest starting a Portal at a convenient time of day. The reason is that, assuming you don’t waste any energy and don’t lose at all before tier 20, you will get the Bear Combo Card at about the same time of day that you start the portal. Gold and Diamond combos take 24 and 48 hours to research, so not having to wake up in the middle of the night to cycle these is good.
  • I found that I leveled 2 times while doing the portal. Just an FYI to watch for this as your energy gets filled when it happens.

Hope this helps.

-Pip

PS – Here is a thread where I asked some questions preparing for Anna. Here it links to a google doc for a good way to use your portal keys.

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Arena is not working

Originally posted by GravitasM:

In case someone says that there’s no way that 60 gems is warranted by the disruption – I agree completely, but I think it could actually lead to increased sales.

If that were true, they would give away gems more often. People put value to what they pay for something. If you give someone something for free they don’t value it at all. So by giving away gems, you decrease their value (not the opposite).

The issue did not likely result in any significant or notable loss for any player. The most significant might be those few players on the fringe between Heroic Portal levels (if they didn’t do their portal earlier in the day yesterday, and if what they would have earned would have pushed them to the next level) or maybe those in the Arena who didn’t do their 5th battle early in the day and so didn’t get their chest reward. In both of these cases the missed reward is very marginal.

If they wanted to be nice, they could give everyone 10-20 dust or something. That is about an equitable reward (60 gems? why even suggest something so crazy?). However 10-20 dust is so small it almost doesn’t seem worth it.
