Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Do you like the new design?

No, I do not like the new design, the clean lines and simplicity of the old design worked and most importantly everything was obvious immediately, the current design nothing is obvious immediately numbers wise.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 2nd time beating game - shocked!

Originally posted by kikix12:

…Sorry, but I think you should read more carefully what others write.

I compared it to “cheats” from single-player games. You know, like those where you write in a code in a special window and get a boost to…lets say…health regeneration.

If you cannot tell the difference between cheats and cheating…well, that’s your problem. Cheats are a part of the game, therefore they are not cheating. Cheating is not a part of the game, therefore they are not cheats. Cheats are fine and available to everyone, cheating is bad (at least when it affects other people) and is available only to some people.

I won’t even comment on the rest of your post, since it’s entirely irrelevant, except the last part.

The difference between this update and the past updates is the time at which it hit. It did after a longer while, with him being (in comparison) further than he would be in the past updates. The one that brought the limit to 2000 did give FAR more multipliers than the current one did, actually. It pushed, in absolute terms, far, far more than the current update did. But it SEEMS like this one did more because it came later.

Of course, micromanagement screws this up some. It does increase the gaining speed quite considerably. However, this is still an idle game in nature. If someone spends few hours clicking the businesses, that’s their choice, but that’s not really how the game was balanced. A question is born. Should the micromanagement be redeveloped to be less profitable over longer periods of it being used, to balance it around those heavy clickers, or should they be left to themselves, burning themselves up and leaving the game eventually because they wanted something too quickly?! Well, that’s not for me to decide.

what a bunch of inane gibberish, you chose to reply on a topic where the OP made a point that was correct, you tried to point out he was wrong and “cheating” you were proved wrong by a number of people who have tested WITHOUT multipliers – deal with it and move on. I’m saying the OP is correct, having played both with and without multipliers, I’m also saying its NOT cheating by every definition of the word to use the kred options provided by the developers, use the “play to win” argument by all means but stop using the word cheating.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 2nd time beating game - shocked!

I never understand people calling those using money “cheats”, its not, time is money, if you calculate your job hourly rate to your playing time hours you’ll find you spend WAY more money on hourly rates than you ever will on actual game spends, is it cheating if you spend 5 hours on the game but only 1 at work and someone else spends 1 hour on the game 5 at work but pays for those four hours? Cheating = breaking the rules, the devs of this game don’t just clearly show its fine to do so they actively encourage you to purchase it (obviously). The only “skill” in this game is efficiency, therefore it all comes down to “time spent” which equates to real money one way or another.

The argument he made is that its really quick and easy comparatively now to beat the game where every single update before very few people managed it, with or without multipliers.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / 2nd time beating game - shocked!

I go from a reset to all upgrades and 2k+ everything in well under 10 minutes now, only have 3 multipliers. There’s no “wall” anymore that I’ve noticed though I had passed the 1850 wall for a while before the update. Just now there’s very little to do except reset and get more angels for the next update. The original poster is correct in that it seems way easier to beat the game now than it has been in any previous update, I hadn’t managed to hit any of the previous totals before this point and I don’t believe anyone (without cheating) hit 2k newspapers before the last update. I also started a new game on another computer with zero multipliers just to compare and was up to 1800 newspapers fast before micromanagement was added, post micromanagement theres no wall that im facing.

@kikix12 – Factors you’ve not taken into consideration are that the first couple of updates were BEFORE money came into the game, multipliers were added after so if you played since the beginning you were not further ahead than anyone else as money wasnt a factor only time was. My game without multipliers showed me its WAY easier than when the game first started to jump straight to the high end.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / We need a new update VERY soon!

Gabe you realise it would take years realtime to “beat” the game at the moment, you’ve effectively “beaten the game” once you hit 1900 newspapers and 2k + in everything else and theres not many managed that. Hitting 2k newspapers is simply a boring proposition for anyone as things stand, we need updates to keep the game fresh as the fun part of this game is the start / middle stage, endgame is boring, im not even getting to do a 50pct reset after a week of inaction now, if I cant reset there’s literally nothing to do but keep it ticking over incredibly slowly.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / To the developers... re: tourney times and shutdowns...

Firstly, just a fantastic idea that you decided to make a tournament on a european server that’s at 1.30-2.30am but followed up with the greater display of genius that is doing server maintenance midway through thus ending the tournament for all concerned, what on earth are you thinking?!

Have them earlier, schedule your maintenance better maybe!

Topic: Galaxy Online / League Times

Could these be modified slightly as at the moment they don’t fit to a working UK schedule (standard 9-5) at all and I’d imagine that makes up a reasonable proportion of the games demographic. Even getting back early (around 5.15pm) I hit the tail end of the league meaning I get 1 or 2 games max and cant complete it, I’d then need to stay up to 2.30am+ to get the 3rd, which again isn’t very viable for my working week.

Can it not just be extended by half an hour each league time slot please, its annoying to miss out on one of the most important commodities available because I happen to have a job.

Topic: Technical Support / Site issues

I should not have to be taking screenshots each and everytime and the problems here are more wideranging than just the badges. It is not a performance issue in the slightest, I appreciate you taking the time to respond but this is a site problem, I suspect something to do with the dns issues as a number of people experienced the same problems around the same time, I just need a fix for it. I can happily use my weaker laptop to go on kongregate but that doesnt transfer the 100s of flash savegames ive stored up on this particular computer

Topic: Technical Support / Site issues

Up until a couple of weeks ago everything worked fine but then I started having badge problems, games I knew I’d rated and badged showed up as none at all, badge of the day awarded sporadically on games I’ve previously completed and on new ones.

Arkandian explorer is the one im having the most trouble with currently, I’ve easily surpassed the artifact requirement for the current competition badge, I also have the easy badge there though its not showing.

Pulldown menus on achievements, community etc no longer pull down when i mouse over and any game with adverts tends to go to a black screen with a “click to continue” at the bottom but nothing to click and then do nothing anyway.

Thing is this problem is variable, occasionally an ad will play through and let me play a game, or the game just loads straight up anyway. I’ve cleared my cache but am loathe to do much more as I have loads of savegame data stored somewhere about and I dont want to delete it by accident.

Im using mozilla firefox 16.0.2 and have tried other browsers (which seem to work better but have a few of the same issues)

Appreciate some help please because this is getting very frustrating.

Topic: Call of Gods / 90 seconds is not enough

yep arsenus been saying that for a while, the deployment setup isnt very good, need formations for different things that you can access at a click.

90 seconds is fine by me on plundering, if your stuck in a boss run tough, you were out of your castle and they got an easy win which makes sense, deal with that, what I dont like is the message coming up every 30 secs and blocking me from doing anything on screen.

Topic: Call of Gods / Where's my refund Part 3

oh do stop whining, im talking about bunny, i dont know what happened before blackelf took over its a different alliance

the only high templars that i dont know about were the ones who have joined lanni anyway, so look to your own house if you want to accuse. Our two are blackelf and bunnybun both of whom are fair players and dont cheat in a million years.

Grinding is NOT cheating.

Topic: Call of Gods / Where's my refund Part 3

bunny has categorically not abused any bug whatsoever, if you knew her you’d know this, she plays ridiculous amounts and uses gold but she does not cheat. Templars doesnt have any of the cheats in it, most of the people who joined were after all the duping. If anyones paid attention you will see when bunny has won her items fair and square on the wheel including her libras. She spends most of her time either hardcore soloing bosses or helping everyone else out. Anyone accusing bunny simply has no clue about the high end game.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Bug] Need help? Find a bug? This is the place.

Dont lie about bunnybun to suit your whining, Ive watched her be online constantly and hit a level a day pretty much, she didnt go 74-77 in 12 hours, total lies. People who post this to try and smear others should be banned imo. She spends too much time online but that doesnt make her an exploiter or cheat she just works hard and with red heroes as she has of course she’ll go faster, spending gold =/= exploits

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Tyrant Errors

I guess there is a reason for it being a day to claim only? with raids spanning 3 days you have to expect some people to not be able to login to claim sometimes, im guessing you’ve linked the lockouts to the raid reward which seems sloppy to me or plain lazy. Pretty galling to lose out on that amount of points sigh

Did a TSpawn raid, scored something like 1700 or more, I was busy over the weekend and the raid would have finished in that time (no way it was a loss it had over 2 days left and a few millimetres of bar left) but now ive logged in to find ive got no finished raid waiting, did I pass a timer or something? Its as though I never raided at all, no sign of the points I should have earnt either.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / How to score 11,000 faction war points in 30 min

yes you are also making those assumptions then hypocritically throwing it back at me when I have made no assumptions just a snarky point to try to get you to see how your comments are construed. Anyhows giving money to children where it will just be wasted or aid in overpopulation ultimately leading to the destruction of the planet and the human race… well im going to enjoy my time while I can the children can benefit from such wonderful humanitarians as yourself ;) (this is a huge socio-economic debate Im not having here)

my facts are straight as far as the rest goes, you can state your opinion but you are stating it strongly and angrily against… who? theres noone here thats being the way you are hating on. Noone asked you to respect the top factions or anyone else, you are acting like someone expected you to kowtow to them, if that had happened then I could understand your comments and id be sharing them, but till someone does keep it to yourself or pick the right thread?

As for the devs, they are going to be greedy because its how they make a living, I can understand that, I believe (and indeed know for a fact having been involved on both sides of the fence) that you CAN have a happy medium where a loyal and solid community can be catered too whilst making enough money to be more than happy. Im all for achieving that medium so are you it seems, but go about it the right way, whining at people taking advantage of a broken system is NOT the right way and wont get the devs interested. Coming up with alternatives that work on the other hand might.

In a nutshell, be constructive not destructive

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Petition]Faction Disband/Kick Fix and BO Ressurection

satan was the leader when I joined but I’d been in idiots when rust and all the others were running it, and yes the insta trick was something I used but I stopped playing properly after it, there didnt seem much point to anything once you were that powerful, I was the one who on the day I stopped playing took out 2 big players completely to the point they didnt want to play ever again, used 500k worth of army to take every bit of resource they had, every city tribbed, every army starved etc, thats the way a bastard quits :) made satans day that did.

The compensation package was pretty good I must say, so props to kong for that, I never realised there were preceding account reasons I only ever knew about the legal issues (to do with evony iirc)

you were in bastards? lol snap, ok this is before I even started playing so i had no knowledge of this, but you said it was pulled down from kongregate, it was removed from kongregate apparently for the second time and the compensation was because of legal issues thats also a fact, feel free to pull that one up too, from some female kong employee.

I assumed you meant that and as I got full compensation for it i knew that event was nothing to do with hacked account so were talking about two different removals, fair enough.

dionfung, i played caesary, was a top 20 player in the best league on the server (K5), what you are saying didnt happen. Noone I know lost their account, caesary was pulled OFF kongregate for copying another games code there were legal issues so kongregate removed it and compensated the players (I got various in game currencies for 3 games due to the high level I had in the game). Caesary continued on its own servers and still does afaik but on kongregate cannot due to external legal factors, there were huge posts by kongregate staff about this explaining it all.

207 fp in a week is easy, want to know how they did it?

1) people attacked them en masse and they won it all by warbonding
2) they used their own alt factions to attack themselves thus giving themselves up to 10 wars maybe even more every SIX HOURS. (do the maths, you hit 207 fp long before a week)

Week = 168 hours
6 hours for instant declare – high activity so it can safely be assumed even factoring in a minute to find the right one, lets called it:6.1 (overestimate but hey im doing this quickly)

thats 27 wars in a week they can declare thats 27 * 6 at best or lets average it to 4 to keep the naysayers like yourself quiet , thats 27 * 4

108 FP from their own started wars leaving us 99 fp to make up, if you checked these forums you’d see they were attacked simultaneously by 6 or 7 factions, they won them all, again assuming our 4 average …..

need I continue? as soon as you start factoring in even a few alt factions attacking them on a few occasions you can clearly see that hugely more than 200 fp is possible in a week from a well organised faction controlling multiple external officers / alt factions.

As for all your other nonsense, bottom line is, any exploiting or hacking is bad in any game and should result in harsh punishment, whatever you want to call it Black ops have not broken any rules therefore arent cheating, nothing is dishonest as they freely admitted it on the forums. Hacking on the other hand breaches LAWS reallife laws, exploiting breaches kongregates policies.

You are arguing a lost cause unless you can prove that BO actually did hack to get where they were which I doubt.

francisurquhart -

1) Why are you online, the money and time you are spending here could be used to save the precious children you keep going on about, its hypocritical to attack others for spending the money they earned how they choose

2) Noone that ive seen has said any of the top factions players are better players, theres not very much skill in this game, noone claims to be what you keep whining about, you are creating an argument over nothing to support a point noone even countered. If there really are people on here that think they are superior players because they spend more time / money or whatever then they are delusional but Ive not seen anyone claim such

The mechanic of this game is badly wrong in terms of fairplay but excellent in terms of generating the devs money, warbond to win – no skill all cash, but dont blame the people who do it, blame the setup.

Anyone want to suggest a better way of injecting skill into the game rather than complaining about a mechanic thats never going to change without a viable financial alternative.

yonoid111 get a clue, they didnt cheat, they just played the game, sneaky yes, cheating no. Hacking is beyond cheating thats ILLEGAL and results in prison terms for some.

Bottom line here is if there are some major vulnerabilities which many believe there are from some of the very odd bugs about and screenshots / evidence on these forums then the developers need to get on it instantly.

They will lose their main income stream overnight if all the main factions are messed with, thats $1000s of dollars if not $10,000s when people stop playing (how many will continue if their top ten faction disappears overnight)

Signed
