Topic: Dragons and Titans / New Update Changelogs.

These changes are a joke, right? This is your idea of nerfing Gemtalon? It’s still the best tank in the game. It does more dmg than 95% of dragons, the shield is still crazy OP, and it’s faster than most all dragons too. Two Gemtalons on the other team still means you’re very likely to lose the match.

Do the devs not understand that beam dragons are given a HUGE advantage over all other types because of autotarget? Beam dragons have constant dmg/auto-hit. Breath and projectile dragons do not automatically hit, thus allowing them to consistently get run down by any and all beam dragons. Add in the still-very-strong shield/reflect of Gemtalon and it’s a joke even trying to fight back w/ most dragons. And I haven’t even mentioned the ridiculous range advantage beam dragons have yet.

There’s also the controller speed exploit that’s allowing honest players to get run down by dragons that shouldn’t be catching them.

Oh, and get this! On top of all of that, they’ve now made Mistfallow nearly invincible and introduced a new dragon that is faster than twinscale and can kill most anything in 4 hits. Instead of 1 laughably OP dragon before this patch, now there are 3.

Ultimately, though, the combination of beam dragons and auto-target is what is going to cause this game to fail like VORP. Which sucks, because I loved VORP and see the potential here.

Anyway, I’m not spending anymore money on this game until the beam dragons aren’t allowed to have such a significant advantage.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] ELO Rating System: Reduce Rating For Exiting The Match

Over the past week or so, I’ve begun to drift away from this game.

The reason is simple: I am severely punished for being a high-ranked player. There is no incentive whatsoever for me to enter a game without a teammate of my choice. This teammate is almost always a very good player. Why? Because if I enter random games, like I used to all the time during my first month of play, my team will almost certainly consist of the worst players in the lobby. Meanwhile, the other team is comprised of all the good or, at the very least, competent players within that specific lobby. Winning is hard enough when the teams consist of 2 very good players vs 3 good players.

My suggestion would be this: scrap the ELO system entirely or at least change the way teams are selected in the lobby within the current system. One for you, one for me, etc. But please, please stop stacking the odds so heavily against high-ranked players. Even one simple feeder is enough to derail an otherwise good team. But to just make it impossible for us to even get a competent team in a random game is incredibly frustrating. I end up leaving most lobbies now.

Why waste 25 minutes playing a non-competitive game? Where’s the fun in that?

Also, since ranking matters now… Why is there STILL no solution for the biggest problem in the game after all this time? I’m talking about quitters, of course. The players who get punished are the ones on the quitters team. Only it’s worse now, as we actually lose ranking because of it and the quitter just buggers off with no care in the world.

Game is boring for higher ranked players after this patch. Where is the fun? No one to play against. Take away the dumb rank barriers and let us fight against everyone.

I clicked join a friend and it took me to a game in pre match with 1 cpl and 1 citizen. and another time with 2Cpl, 1 sgt, and a citizen. Anyways, why are you trying to avoid us higher ranked? You can learn a lot and we can help you. and the only rank barriers are from below Sgt, which is easy enough to achieve.

I’m not trying to avoid anyone. I just want to play in a full room. I don’t care if its all high ranked, low ranked, whatever. It’s just that I haven’t been able to find a single full room to play in since the update. The rooms all say they’re near full. And when I join, there’s nothing but two or three others just waiting for the game to start. They’re always near my rank.

So, I am just assuming the “team balancing” was to put a barrier up for ranks. Kinda ridiculous as higher levels don’t really have an advantage over lower levels, other than being more familiar with the game.

Again, I just want to play in full rooms. Don’t care who is in there. This new balancing thing is ruining that for me.

New patch is lame. Apparently, I can only play in games with people ranked corporal or higher. Entered games on all different servers which say there are 9 or 10 people in game. I join and it’s only 3 others. Haven’t encountered a someone ranked private since patch. So dumb. No more 12 person battles. The most fun part of the game was joining big rooms. Meh.

Don’t even want to play anymore.

Topic: Kongregate / Where is recently played games?

Okay, I was needlessly harsh with my last post. Sorry about that. Just can’t for the life of me understand why you’d make things so unnecessarily difficult. We had a good thing going, Kong. Y U NO LOVE ME? Please put ‘Recently Played Games’ back on the front page.

Thank you.

Please put ‘Recently Played Games’ back on the front page. Please. It’s honestly one of the two things the front page is good for and you removed because some fart sniffer in a meeting decided it we should all use a lame drop down menu.

Absolutely ridiculous.

I also have issues with adding more than 50 friends. The list doesn’t change. It’s frozen or something. Nothing updates or refreshes.
