Topic: Prime World: Defenders / This game contains little to no strategy.

I dropped something like eight Prime Guns before I got a Dragon. I don’t think it’s more rare, but that’s the RNG for you.

I don’t know, if you’re level 41 and all you’ve got is Toxic and Energy Cannon then I can only think that you must have been extremely unlucky. This is my second time playing and if anything I’ve gotten worse cards this time than last time, and I’m still better off than you. Also, I think my drops have gotten better since I passed level 35… I’m not sure, but I think it might be level based.

Jealous of all that silver though.

45 now 55k silver. And I have maxed out ice tower as well. (P3) but still not a second dragon. No sun/lightning/prime gun either. So there goes that idea. Level obviously IS a factor, but not one that determines if you actually get the tower. It CAN show up doesn’t mean you will get it even picking 3/5 every single time (like I am right now every time a dragon/stars show up)FYI 2 more 20 star packs as well. also nada. All of which proves my initial point. It isn’t strategy that gets you through levels. It’s luck and insane amounts of grinding ( day 6 of grinding now)

And do I have access to prime gun? nope. do i have sun/ nope… suggesting cards that are MORE rare doesn’t help. Day 6. 1 dragon (still) 0 sun/lightning/prime gun etc. up to 40k silver (which is entirely worthless since you can’t even get uniques in silver bought packs. only use for it is to go for 3 chances at a dragon tower/star. Before you tell me to use 40k silver on fusing stuff.. my stuff is maxed. I hit level 41 already.

Level 38. back down to 0 stars. First dragon tower (not from pack) and its already maxed out for fuse.. now I just need 3 more. End day… 5? of grinding…

THIS is the thing I take issue with. You dont get the right towers, you CANT win. Regardless of anything else. It’s just impossible. Which means what lets you win isn’t strategy but the towers. If the difference between winning and losing was placement I wouldn’t have a problem. But when the game basically presents you an unwinnable situation that is just plain stupid design.

I beg to differ… Certain levels require certain placement tactics, especially when you hit H mode. Grinding has little to do with the game… I find it is more luck. Sometimes you can draw rare cards. Stars are earnable through grinding yes, but even with maxed towers on H mode, enemies can be hard to subdue, especially when the map is near full of them…

Early stages of the game are simple, but as it progresses it does get quite challenging and requires the right towers in your arsenal to win.

Yes and the issue is WITHOUT maxed out towers, you don’t stand a chance of winning. You literally CANNOT win hard mode with only level 2 towers (with the combine.. im not talking about fuse at all) because a 40% difference in base damage plus a whole extra level worth of damage IS the difference between winning and losing hard levels. And when you can’t get it at all, its not about the grind. it’s about the fact that there is absolutely NO strategy you can employ to make up the difference. No amount of positioning, synergy can prevent you from losing because the game literally hard caps your dps potential. This is especially true on smaller maps with fewer locations to actually place towers to begin with. Any blocked off point is a huge drop in dps for you that you can’t afford. Even with the talents maxed out (all of them including the star priced ones bought out) tier 2 towers will never get you enough dps to finish hard. Thats just the cold hard truth.

I’m at level 34, maxed out meteor, rain of fire, curse (all max rank), P3 (T2+T2) mortar, air guard, ice tower, toxic, accursed, prime injector, energy cannon, but guess what 20k silver left and all my stars have gone to 3x unique packs. still no dragon towers. And this is AFTER a resetting of my level 38 account which I progressed to the point where I couldn’t get past wave 40 on hard because I lacked T3 mortar and air guard because I advanced too fast and couldn’t advance in the story or grind anymore. I’m still around grinding every so often looking for that elusive dragon tower while I watch TV or whatever. I’m not talking about sun or lightning. I’ve got spare ice and toxic I’m probably going to use to fuse but guess what.. all my stuff is maxed out or nearly so. I’ve got plenty of coins to max it out right now (but there really is no need) just the fact is I know I can’t progress past a certian point without dragon tower T3 (or better get P3) but I’ve yet to get it.
I know I’ll “breeze” through the rest of the game once I get it.. but it’s a you either have it or you don’t situation. And guess what? I don’t.

It’s simply a grind or pay to continue game. The fact is you cannot play with level 1 or 2 towers (I’m only talking about evolution). Placement etc has VERY little to do with if you win or not. If you don’t have the towers for it you simply can’t win. Prove me wrong if you can. Post a end of raid level 75 picture with a screen full of level 1/2 towers (with the same in your collection).

The developer’s only hope with this game is that you get bored enough of grinding to pay. While “amusing”, it’s not a good game.

Topic: Prime World: Defenders / Ideas and suggestions

The thing I dislike most about the game: the fact that your progression is limited not by the strategy you have but the towers you have access to. The game is stupid easy IF you have the right towers at P3 or whatever you wanna call it. Can’t get that tower? keep grinding. I hit level 25, got stuck in the story because I couldn’t get some of the really basic towers up to p3 but then the grinding slowed to a halt too because I had progress so far (invis, siege engines, healing). This isn’t a strategy game or a tactical game. It’s a pay or grind till you get the right stuff to progress game.

Visit different planets Wood logs is easiest found in the AIR planets. If you are in a TERRESTRIAL or AQUATIC planet you WONT FIND ANY. Each of the planets have their own resources.

a simplistic point system doesnt not work. if you dont even understand that… go back to playing the game some more until you understand it. and if you still dont understand.. read the comment above mine until it does make sense.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Welcome to Kings and Legends!

Hard raids advertise false rewards: 99.99% of time those legendary cards arent even in the POOL to pick from. I’ve done King’s mausoleum enough times to get enough rares and epic ears to combine legendary ears yet I’ve NEVER EVER seen the legendary serka/necropolis even show up on the board as a reward. Same with legendary Lucanus/Celestial mirror in Castle of Bones, Talenor/arcane altar in Desert fortress etc.
Maintenance: stop doing it on a weekday night when I get home after work. If I cant play, I wont pay. So if you want my money stop doing maint during my prime playtime. I won’t even consider buying gold until this happens.

The real disparity comes from the extra days of tower coins, raid hards yielding gold, daily activity gold etc.

My bank won’t let me buy kreds w/ my card. Need to add MP, especially to get better coms and to unbind my legends and divs (about 1kMP). I can’t merge any of them, and also really can’t get more sealing cards easily.

Tried selling res estrellas a while ago, but that market got less profitable and then dried up, and mt last try failed to get a buyer. Might put up a L&D scroll up for 50MP soon.

I got 85MP now, and won’t sell my coms w/out a suitable offer.

Get a job, apply for a real credit card.

Or go buy a prepaid card.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Region 8 - Skeletal throne

grind up your undead rep to the point you get rare dread phantoms. put 3 in your deck. laugh when you fear serka back into his hand. then kill the wall and watch most of their side disappear. the alternatives are buff the wall so serka cant drain and use ranged heroic (crossbow captian) or battle priestess/abbess behind a good tank. also feles assassin master is great for knocking out big chunks of health. my deck was basically all slowroll with that stuff. i finished the 4 wins in like 6 or 7 tries.

dont worry you arent the only one. i had a friend who did it like 20ish times too. but really with the right cards its really easy.

unpopular is the understatement of the week. instead of once a week you have maintinance during prime playtime. i mean its ok. if you dont want people to play your game thats fine. just dont expect people to buy gold either.

theres absolutely nothing wrong with the reset occurring at 5am. you are fixing something that doesnt affect most people with something that does. and thats just plain stupid.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / An angry guide to Windy Cliff

I usually run 4 backstabbers +3 sanc + 3 tanks(1 soul + 2 phantoms) + 4 vigilance (3/4/2 spear elves + 1 2/7/4) + inspire. i can say for a fact that 5-6 backstabbers is nice but not necessary. remember you only need 1 3atk backstabber + 3 atk vig to kill the initial tengus. more is obviously better but it can be done with as little as 3 backstabbers (as long as they have 3 atk).

not to mention spear elves from elf packs are more useful overall (you will need them in pvp + tower against all those pegasai/calvary)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / September Events

people that complain about sanc should be shot. theres a bunch of ways that you can use to get rid of it. simply the sheer amount of removal thats availible to all the other classes vs 3 sancs in a priest’s arsenal..
