I would hope most developers have enough moral high ground to not pull crap like this.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Why Worry About 'End Game' Players?

I can see the point of both sides of the issue, but it seems like you guys are deaf to the other side’s reasoning. Make peace, not flame war. Nerfing the game to the point where you have to pay to have a hope of getting comparable progress to what you had is not very fair, but the devs must get money somewhere. However, they could have looked at other systems of payment that were already in place and thereby avoided looking like sellouts.

Your argument is invalid. Every one of Kongregate’s top games have some type of pay system. Do you work in real life for free? Probably not. These devs are apparently working hard to bring this game to fruition. Yes, it is still in Alpha phase. Kongregate authorized these guys to post a Kred system on this game, so why are you only blaming the devs? Stop hating and let others just play the game.

Your argument is invalid. There are plenty of great games here with no type of pay system. You are exaggerating to make your point look stronger, but making it weaker in the process.

Topic: War of Omens / Valrow is cheating! (admin,urgent!!!)

I know this is the internet, but if you think logically instead of instantly crying wolf at the admins, you may just stumble on the thought that if someone did hack the game, the hacks would be unlikely to be immediately exhibited in multiplayer, where the hacker could get caught quickly, but rather skirmishes, where no human opponent exists to call out hackers.

I’ve heard of strategies built on siphoning food, so if that is the case, it’s magic only.

this is like the 10th thread covering the same thing….
also its better to just knock up someideas in mspaint and then upload the images. it is much better when people are able to visualise the cards

You and your visualization. If everyone were an artist, this could work, but that is not currently the case and has approximately 0 probability of happening. Furthermore, the technical aspect is far more fascinating for me personally because if that doesn’t introduce anything new, then the faction is worth little. I’ve seen your ideas and they are interesting, but not everyone has your artistic talent.

A particular favourite of mine is when the Metris AI plays a Wench and then a Mayhem on top of it. :P Not only did they kill a valuable ally when they didn’t have to, there’s a fifty percent chance they’ll destroy it and waste six gold too.

It won.t get killed, everything is discarded. This only kills conjured creatures.

@aynonymous – Unmaking just removes bank cards from what is currently available, it doesn’t remove them from your bank entirely aka you can still redraw them, so unmaking is rarely used on the bank.

Banishing Gust, however, is slightly better for this purpose.

Topic: War of Omens / Speed League - or god give me patience but make it fast.

How about a timer in between each card played? It’s easy to exploit if the time is too long, but it would be easy to lose turns if it was too short. Wait, that describes any timing system that involves anything giving more time at all.

Originally posted by Daikoru:

Robbery: Steal 2 ressources. Normally, you get one free gold and the opponent loses two. Just showing that with the most usual condition, Impersonate is actually weaker than Robbery.

This assumes the foe has two gold to steal.

Topic: War of Omens / Usury - Pointless

Originally posted by GuillermoX:

If the whole point of the card is to make your opponent sit there unable to do anything at all just waiting for you to kill him, the card shouldn’t be in the game.

The entire concept of resource denial decks, doing direct damage an enemy must heal, and killing allies is to “make your opponent sit there unable to do anything at all just waiting for you to kill him” more accurately than the entire purpose of usury is. These are important mechanics of the metagame, basic strategy, and the game itself, respectively. If you say such things shouldn’t be in the game, you need to be quicker to listen and slower to speak. Also, being slower to get angry is something the internet in general could use in most situations.

Overseers and Rat Catchers aren’t quite 100 percent necessary, but more often than not you will have one, the other or both present anyway.

The Dev’s are great. I cannot express all the respect i got for them. They really know how to balance this game so every faction got a fair chance to win & it really is possible for f2p to have a chance in this game, its beyond great seriously. We all have seen plenty Dev’s & there are very very few as good as our WoO Dev’s. Even iam a little irritated by my fanboyism but guys can you not see how great they are?

I concur.

…Aurochs HP is 5 max, whereas Barge will have a total of 7 every time it is played by Calipeth. If you’re killing barge in parts, then Barge can return to the hand whilst the gilded warriors are still in play. Aurochs is in no way a good comparison.

It doesn’t matter who plays barge. It has 7 to start +2 for each time it’s hit with Seal.

He’s referring to Herd of Aurochs, not Colossal Aurochs.

He got the health wrong, which obviously confused some people. Colossal Aurochs has 5. Herd has 4.
