Topic: Heroes of the Realm / Totally Stuck lvl1

@ KONG – why is this the “Badge of the Day”?
The game is just as it was a year ago: it still has no endgame content.
Don’t advertise this game if the developers aren’t working on it anymore!

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / 5 Misconceptions about this game new Kong players may have

The most important info for new players is missing.

DISCLAIMER – after reading this, you might not want to play this game at all.

HOTR has no endgame content.

Meaning that what you do in midgame (improving your army to be able to beat all the maps) is all the game has to offer. Real endgame content such as full-fledged PVP is missing completely.

The devs probably planned on adding such content; at least that is what their Helpdesk keeps saying, and there is this unused area in the center of the World Map where players could fight for control of cities, for example.

But it has been a year now, and no update, no nothing.

This does not matter for the first 150 days, but after that, the game gets pretty boring. Which is a real shame since it would be easy to add the missing elements.

I didn’t realise how the game mechanics work. Basically, it is all about level.

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / PvP? Ocher inland? Devs?

I have received an answer from HOTR-Helpdesk after all!
First, it was the automated one that many players received these days:

Thank you for contacting our Help Desk. Thank you for your concern for Heroes of the Realm. We currently have no plans to shut down or end Heroes of the Realm and we still have future content planned. Unfortunately last week we experienced a technical hiccup, but now that is is cleared we will be adding new events and formulas ASAP.

I then sent a second mail, and this time the answer actually refered to my question!

We have plans for expanding the pvp grounds, and guild pvp; however, we have not released any details regarding it yet. :)

Maybe I am too negative, but that sounds very bad …

“Best” case scenario – they come up with new content next year. But by then, this server will probably be dead … oh well. Maybe KONG can revive it then with some extra achievements.

To create an ALT just go to OGPlanet directly and start the game from there.

I don’t see how it is a game. All we do is upgrade our army – but there is no reason WHY we do it. This is not a game; this is the same as collecting stamps.

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / PvP? Ocher inland? Devs?

Hi there,

I asked this in Q&A yesterday, too, but maybe a new thread is better suited:

Does anyone know if this game is still alive? Are the developers working on it? Or do they just manage it?

Is it at all realistic to expect that they will do something with the inland (ocher on the world map), or that they will introduce actual PvP?

And if the answer is yes – are we talking 2014, or “not too distant future”, i.e. when the cows come home?

Topic: Heroes of the Realm / How to make progress on Epirops?

My best army so far was 60+85=145, but that wasn’t enough to beat even Epirops Desert.

What does it take? 150? 160? Has anyone done it lower thanks to skills?

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.

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.

Okay so you’re complaining that time matters on number input questions but complaining it doesn’t matter on multiple choice?

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.

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.
