I suggest you get what’s relevant to that hero’s role first. Your tank hero(es) for example you should upgrade the defensive items first. Your offensive hero(es) would need to offensive items first. After you’ve gotten each hero those items, then work on giving them the rest.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Dawn of Darkness] A thread to collect advices

Please make some of Ironblood’s freaking beta players move OUT of Ironblood. This is completely unfair to the other two factions, as any time we actually manage to capture one of those middle veins in resource war, this happens:

hellbrid attacks jasonwav…, Victory! 11 Consecutive Victory![View]

Yeah, 11 players. He took the SINGLE middle vein we had solo. And then went and did the same to Dawn Vanguard’s SINGLE middle vein They have multiple players that could win solo if Divine Council’s entire damn faction was on one vein, and I assume Dawn Vaunguard is in the same boat we are. This is completely unfair, they had a huge head start on us all in levels, which is fine, but they also had a huge head start in reputation, because the reputation patch made it almost impossible to get the level 4 heroes for anyone that wasn’t already there, let alone the level 5. Now, that wouldn’t even be that big of a deal if they were spread out among the factions, but apparently during Beta, they weren’t required to actually go to different factions, and so are all in one faction, leaving the other two with absolutely no hope of beating them for a very long time.

I can not unlock the level 10 achievement “Battle Boost”. I have trained heroes and enhanced gear multiple times since unlocking the level 10 achievement group, and this is the only one out of that group I do not have.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Raids Bot

“1 – Who should be able to choose who they share a raid with?”

The summoner of the raid. Which is fine and dandy, but anyone in the raid can share it… If they choose to keep the raid private, they can easily just whisper it to people they want in it, and not post it openly, which is how the bot gets it. When it’s openly posted in a room, it’s made public regardless of the bot.

“2 – If someone is truly against the bot, why should they not be allowed to opt out of it scraping them?”

I have no problem with an opt-out option, I’ve even supported it in previous pages. I also support the bot ignoring DL and z10 raids. I don’t see why you can’t just whisper it around to people like I stated above, but, like I said, I also have no problem with an opt-out option. I just don’t see why it’s necessary.

What I do not support is people against the raid entirely because of their selfish desire to be able to log in and have a pastebin full of raids that is not readily available to the masses. People have argued against the bot because it favors those that stay logged in. That’s how games work guys. It’s a time-management game. Time. It is absolutely ridiculous to expect to not be at a disadvantage to people that are logged in all the time, and furthermore, those said people all have access to pastebins – which leads them to actually have an advantage over those that are logged in all the time and don’t know about or have access to a pastebin. That’s what I don’t support.

Fine. I admit I shouldn’t have attacked you personally, and I apologize, but I feel very strongly about what I am saying. And I was responding to your entire argument, not just the parts that help me. I am not sure exactly what parts I ignored, if you would be so kind as to point them out, I’ll be happy to respond to them as well.

Should there not be an advantage to staying logged in all day as compared logging in every once in a while…? You expect to log in three-four times a day and be at no disadvantage to those that are logged in the entire day? What kind of crap is that? How many MMOs have you played? That’s how it works. And FYI, I log in two-three times a day for about a half hour, so no, I’m not just saying that because I’m on all day. For that matter I have no problem getting in to 50 man raids, and I get in to the same amount of 10 man raids I did before. Granted, almost none for the 10 man raids, but like I said, I got in to almost none before anyway, so no change. Your entire argument revolves around you wanting to be a casual player with advantages over the hardcore players, and even over the other casual players that don’t know about your pastebins. Your argument is that raids are actually being spread around to everyone now, rather than just the group you are a part of, and you’re selfishly trying to go back to the way it was before where you had the advantage, as opposed to now, when there is none for anyone.

I don’t know how to use Kongregate forum very well, so I’m going to be doing a bit of copy/pasting. Sorry.

mxuxl41:
“As I see it, there are two ways to approach the game once you get up there in levels: Firstly, you could sit in chat all day, pick up raids as they come and make sure you have the first dibs on everything. Secondly, you could log in every few hours, load a pastebin and pick up the leftovers from the first group.”

Alright. The pastebin group obviously has a big advantage here of getting most(all…) of the raids they want without having to be on all day like the first group, but agree with everything you’ve said here. I just wanted to point out that little tidbit.

“Before the bot, everyone was happy. The active players get what they want for what they would consider a good time investment, and the more passive players still get a sizable portion of raids to hit for their lower investment. But when the bot is on, everyone is forced to adopt the same playstyle of sitting in chat all day and picking up every raid as they come, else suffer massive losses as the bot spreads every raid to the point that they are killed 8x as fast and never make it into a pastebin.”

Yes, everyone was happy, because the group without pastebin access mostly didn’t know about them, and didn’t know they were missing out on such a huge tool… The “more passive players” got almost anything they wanted also, I think that should be pointed out(again). You don’t have to sit in chat all day, you can still USE a pastebin, or you can find the bot while it’s posting(which happens a lot) and pick up raids from those. The only difference now is that everyone is getting the raids instead of just you and your group, and so they’re dieing faster, which leads to you being unhappy. You realize how selfish that sounds, right? That you basically just validated my previous post?

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Raids Bot

So far as I can tell, the argument against the bot is that people find less of the raids they want. The problem with this argument is that, in most of these cases, they find these raids from a pastebin. They log in, look through the pastebin, join the raids they want, and happily get lots of raids. Why do they get these raids without the bot and not with? Because some (lots) people don’t know about pastebins or don’t use them for one reason or another(I didn’t know about pastebins until the this bot, I’m guessing a lot of other people didn’t either). So have access to all these raids that other people could have access to, if they knew about it… With the bot around, however, the pastebins aren’t exclusive anymore. I’m not saying it was a big conspiracy or anything, but like I said, a lot of people didn’t/don’t know about them. Now, with the bot, everyone has access to the what is in pastebins, through the bot, and so all those raids that everyone wants, everyone gets. This leads to the people with access to pastebins seeing a sharp decline in the availability of raids. Because other people are getting them. Because they have the same access now that used to only be for people with pastebins.

Now, I still feel that z10 and DL should be ignored by the bot, but I have strong objections to people still griping about the bot. The only unfair thing about the bot (pasting in room 8 first) was changed so it’s now random. You can say everyone should just use pastebins instead, but that makes me wonder… Why? Why should I and everyone else use a pastebin when the bot is around to serve the same purpose to all of us? And the only conclusion I can come up with is because you know that there will always be lots of people that don’t know about the pastebins, and give you a significant advantage over them.

Please, someone correct me if I’m wrong. I’d love to hear someone elses reasoning.

I was protesting an opt-in service, and agreeing with an opt-out :P I completely agree there should be an opt-out for DL and z10 raids, for the reasons you post, I simply don’t think that’s a big enough problem to constitute any large action against it. Simply ask who wants it and whisper it to them. Also, I don’t think you understand how the bot works. It goes in to one room, spends some time posting its raids, then switches to the next room. If by the time you click a raid and have it loaded, the bot has completed three rooms, your internet would have to be so slow that you’d never manage to log in to begin with.

That post was to IvanaM3, not to you, TheGrim13, and I apologize for the confusion. You posted while I was currently writing mine.

@Your first post : I’ve no problem with what you said, although I’m a bit confused as to how a raid originally posted in your room (room 1) would get to you last – Your room would be the first to see it, as you’d be getting it from the original post.

As far as an opt-in service, I believe it could be programmed to whisper people on a list, though how well that would work in practice, I’m not sure. However, that defeats the purpose of the bot, which is to provide the raids to everyone, instead of just those using a script. Having an opt-out option I don’t suppose would cause any problems, as the raid poster could simply whisper the raid to those interested rather than posting it.

@Your second post : Like I said above, my post wasn’t directed at you, and I apologize for the confusion. I have to protest your anger at raids from other rooms being dead before they get to your room with this bot – You wouldn’t be getting them at all if not for the bot. Unless of course someone from room X came to your room to post it. Which… is what the bot does. Ignoring that, they could easily do that before the bot even starts posting, which would mean the bot causes no problem to you at all. I have trouble seeing any way that the bot causes any problems to you in the ways you describe. You aren’t losing out on raids posted in your room, only rooms you wouldn’t be getting the raids from anyway.

I don’t mean to be argumentative, I am not trying to cause a fight here. I am simply trying to give my perspective, so perhaps you, and others upset about the bot, will come to appreciate it the way I and others do.

She’s hosting the bot. It’s her bot. Why exactly would she not post it to her own room first? Maybe instead of whining about how the bot posts to its owners room first, you should thank her for hosting the bot at all rather than just using a script to capture raids for herself and not share.

On that note, thankyou, HumanGirl, for hosting the bot.

Mmm my mistake, I was confused about the definition of “small raid”. My apologies. The bot isn’t in all rooms because when she asked, they didn’t want it.

While I agree that it’s frustrating, I have to disagree with it ignoring small raids. Know how many Gravlocks I’ve seen without the raid? One. With the raid? I’ve hit about ten in the last couple days.

It WAS cool, even though I only saw it work a couple of times. It’s a shame people ruined it for the creator, especially since everything it does is already done by other people, the bot just made it fair for everyone.
