Topic: Heroes of the Realm / Q&A

Sorry if this has been asked before (very likely) -

What is the ocher realm inbetween the other three kingdoms about? Will that be used anytime soon?
And most importantly – will it be used for PvP, which at the moment is pretty much non-existent?

Right now I consider quitting the game because all we do is improve improve improve – but for what? Random opponents in the arena?

To all the new players, one word of advice: you do not need nearly as many T3 as you think. Yes, you could have a full team of ten T3, and to get a good team, you would probably have to level up twenty ‘candidates’ until you get it sorted out.
But sooner or later you will be using T4. And since there is a req cap, here’s the thing:

With three T4, there are seven slots left for T3.
But with four T4, you are already down to five T3 because you would exceed the 33 req otherwise.
So don’t waste precious XP on too many T3.

BTW – I got six T4 in six months, so one per month on average. I don’t know if that is normal or exceptionally lucky; maybe someone could comment on that.

Well yeah … that is exactly the problem. I just wrote this – read my comment directly above yours.

Topic: Triviador / Question: Update Castle

Soooo … if I choose a large country, it is hard to get to the top 50 (and that is for the FIRST upgrade); and if I choose a small country, I run the risk that it does not have enough players to qualify.
Then I don’t understand why I see so many upgraded castles. With rules like this, I should see hardly any.

Topic: Triviador / Question: Update Castle

Could anyone explain how this actually works?

It doesn’t seem to make any sense.

Last week I played for Chile. I was definitely the number 1 player, but got zero “regional list” upgrade.
I was also among the top 1% players globally.

There must be something wrong; it is hardly possible that almost every other player has an upgraded castle and I am still stuck with zero upgrades at lvl 22 and after making 25k XP last week.

Do they swim in oil-money and pay their way up?

Or are they Google employees, those vicious presumed cheaters?

What’s up Doc!?

I thought it was obvious?

You can choose your country, no matter where you really are. Of course there aren’t that many players from Georgia; rather, a clan decided that it would be fun to take over that country.

It would be great if the number pad could be changed. Having the backspace button right next to the enter button is incredibly stupid.

And again, we need timers on the multiple choice questions. Way too many duels are decided by the numbers questions that contain pointless questions like “in what year was company xy founded”. All of those need to be removed asap.

Pick one.

Not true. When both players give the RIGHT answer, time should always matter.
But when they both give the same WRONG answer, it should always be a stand-off.

Next – putting the “enter” button next to the “delete” button is such a bad idea … sooo bad.

All I said is that it would be easier to identify cheaters if there were no boosters …

I forgot the most obvious:

Time should matter on the multiple choice questions.

It is silly that it is considered a stand-off when player A answers correctly right away and player B needs 9 seconds.

Topic: Triviador / Suggestions

Get rid of double trick questions that end up to be simple questions.

Example: How many days did the year 2000 have?

People don’t even know that 2000 is the exception of the exception; they just think “2000 can be divided by 4, so 366.”

It would make much more sense to ask about 1900 where the answer is 365.

Also, it is really annoying that a player can win despite being wrong. If the correct answer is “3” and both players suggest “2”, it should be a stand-off.
It makes no sense that one player is awarded the victory for this just because he punched in his wrong answer a little faster. It is still the wrong answer, you know.

Topic: Triviador / Stop the cheaters

Well the obvious thing to do is get rid of all boosters.
Without them, it would be easy to determine who is cheating and who isn’t.

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / Suggestions

Hi, I am a noob, have been around this game for only three months, so it is possible that my suggestion is totally pointless due to lack of information. Anyways, here goes:

Suggestion: please finish the game – give us PvP !

It seems obvious that a game like this should allow the players to fight against each other. Right now, all we have for that is arena, coliseum and daily invasions. That’s a start, but that’s not really PvP.

The center of the map is empty, so my guess is that it was reserved for PvP. It would make sense to have strongholds there that each guild can try to control or something like that.

So how long will it take until you finally finish the game?

Right now, we are just playing alongside each other, which is kinda fun, but why pass on the PvP fun?

Originally posted by thortag:

then why are you playing? if you think it’s annoying and embarrassing find something else to play don’t whine cuz they game you choose doesn’t meet your standards.

This is complete nonsense. If there is a game that is perfect in every way, with just one minor flaw, players are not allowed to complain about that flaw? Sorry, but that is just stupid.

Anyway, the two complaints about “racist” and “sexist” have been addressed several times.

- There are only white heroes – is the book/game racist? No. Fantasy games and books are usually loosely based on the European Middle Ages – bows and arrows, swords, and so on. And in the Middle Ages there was hardly any diversity at all because people did not have the opportunity to travel. So putting white, black, yellow, green and purple heroes into such a game would be just a super lame attempt to win the “PC-Medal”.

- The girls have huge bewbs and hardly any clothes – is the movie/game sexist? Well d’uh, of course it is. Sex sells. But the idea that men who enjoy such movies or games will treat women in RL with less respect than other men is just dumb.

Just a reminder:
there were PoL both two days ago (10am) and yesterday (noon), so you can bet they will have more PoL today and tomorrow so people will keep spending cubics on Soulstones.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Recent pricing errors and bans - official Kongregate statement

I am sorry, but I just don’t understand this.
Why didn’t they just roll back the whole server for 48h? They have repeatedly said that they have that ability.
Of course that would have been unfair to all the players who did not exploit the hack; but they could have sent small gifts to those as compensation.
All the statements and actions they eventually took don’t make any sense.
And freezing any accounts permanently is unfair. Sure, the players who exploited the hack knew what they were doing, but it is just a game; most of them probably thought “well this is funny!”
Snail has no people with brains, that is now proven.

Are you guys joking? There are hero rename cards in the game.

It is easier to sell those cards if Snail gives the heroes retarded names.
