Topic: Chronicles of Blood / AWFUL game

well in my opinion games shouldn’t rely to heavily on luck, but mostly on skill instead. although some luck is needed to keep it exciting, to much can and will absolutely ruin any game.

Topic: Chronicles of Blood / Why did Kongregate let this through?

even if this game does turn out to be good, and i’m not saying it won’t, i still don’t want to be (semi-)forced (i really want to get a small chance at winning a price, even though i know i won’t get it) to play a game that is amazingly boring for the time needed to finish the challenge. that being said it isn’t really that hard once you’ve clicked enough things to see what it does. it does however annoy me (in general, not only in this game) when i’m forced to wait for a bar to fill before you can play again. the screen size is also mildly annoying to say the least. and it at least seems like alot of the buttons could easily be grouped together and made more easily usable. for example make a single inventory with tabs to separate item types. or group all the merchant/craft things into a few pages with multiple tabs (craft/shop pages and type of items tabs). all those buttons just needlessly complicate things.
also in the beginning the win rate for fights is way too low, i guess it’s about 0.35 or something, and nothing can really be done about it, except using unclear abilities in important fights.

Topic: General / [Guide] Buying land

i’m currently trying to add something to my version that tells you how much you can buy of everything (if you buy all and only according to my sheet) with a given current amount of gold, but i’m stuck at trying to loop it correctly, so if you know google spreadsheets (or spreadsheets in general) weel, please pm me/comment in my sheet/ react in this forum thread.

Topic: General / [Guide] Buying land

i’m improving my own version with things you have used in yours, i don’t get however what the effectivity modificator means.
i’m also adding a way to automatically calculate how much to buy of everything with a given amount of money.
here’s a link to the work in progress version.
sheets have self-explanatory (although way too long) names.

have you tried choosing the selecting enchanting in the drop-down menu ‘slot’? they aren’t supposed to show up otherwise.

Topic: General / Perception on Raids?

it might work if there was a specific proc. and possibly not a linear improvement for higher procs, but something that starts fast but eventually only adds 0.1% per 1000 perc.

Topic: General / Losing Planet Coins after crash

have you filed an official bug report? if not, i think you have a first step in solving this. also, try to see if you can find a way to prove that you actually spend money and lost it. i think there is an official bug report link on kong somewhere, but most devs prefer people using something created especially for the game, there might be some button in game or on the official site/forum.

Topic: General / item images not loading

they really need to make images load once on your comp and stay that way, cause the constant loading of them is sad :(

you mean like once per computer, if that’s possible it would help alot. maybe it would even help a little (very little) with lag, because they don’t have to keep sending those images all the time.

maybe craft into skill points if you have all colours of the same type?

Topic: General / WR EXTREME LOOT

if always was a WR it would ruin the game, but if every WR would only be summoned once after this is implemented it could work. (if the cooldown timer was high enough)

Topic: General / petition for a 100 button

Originally posted by HunBence:

I’d rename the title of this topic to the following one “Petition for a customizable damage button” – what would look like a slider, where you can modify your damage from 1 to 100.

And it would be the only button, so no 1, 5, 20. Much easier to handle. Oh and of course WR only – or maybe large raids as well.

i like this idea, and they could limit the max amount in smaller raids, so horgraks would get 20 stam hits but WR’s could get 100 stam hits and some of the middle level raids would get 50 stam hits.

Originally posted by Dworgin:

It would be absolutely good, and I agree with most of you, but the problem would be the raid-damage increasing factors. If an item has ~15% to increase it (or to crit) with a 20-hit, then it couldn’t be 75% on 100-hit, or a 37,5% on a 50-hit. But the slider is a very good idea, if it’s limit is nearly 30-40. [in nutshell: +3 (with my three characters)]

you could make a function that controlled bonus damage, like damage: [damage]*([stamina used]^0.015) the multiplier would rise relatively fast at the beginning and slow in the end. so that 1 stam does standard damage and 100 stam does 1.07 damage, i’ve heard somewhere current 20 stam multiplier is 1.05, in this formula it would be 1.045…

Topic: General / Next WR theories

i’ve heard rumors about another kessov, which makes sense as it helps people get use their flags from krykagius, but echidna is also a likely option, although having more raids that have something to do with here first would also be a real option.

Topic: General Gaming / this game would be awesome: avatar kinect

some time ago i stumbled across this idea for a game that i thought was great. it was on the site gamersuggestions.com and it was about making an avatar game for the kinect in which you could control the elements with the motion of your body. this idea started a movement which has already gotten more than 500 upvotes on the site. i am here on a mission to spread the word and get more people who like the game to know about it and vote on it.
if you like the idea go to http://www.gamersuggestions.com/game_suggestions/40 and upvote, and spread the word.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Terra Monsters] flarmiblue

what’s the deal with flarmiblue, is it like mecha dozer and dark dozer and dashing equiness, in that it will b buyable for terra dollars?
the wiki says it’s not a real terramon → http://wiki.terramonsters.com/index.php/Flarmiblue but it does have an entry in the terrapedia.
