Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Glean 2] Frustrated. Can't figure out how to upgrade.

I have a bug, I can’t craft basic items, for example Compression Springs: Artifact of springs + Silver Ore + Wood Logs and it is frustrating because I can’t progress any further with upgrades!

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.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Which cards are worth playing?

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.

weekly maint means my weekly complaint: STOP DOING MAINT AT 6PM. start it at midnight… or 1 or 2 am when LESS PEOPLE PLAY.

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.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Emergency Maintenance US WEST SERVERS - 9/13 7pm PDT - 9pm PDT

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..

God, I hate when people bring up Tyrant as an example. Let’s not forget – it took well over a year for any of that to happen. Seems like people like to act as if it’s always been that way. Not like the devs. were greedy, money-hungry…—I’ll stop there, before this gets deleted by an admin.

Since i play tyrant nearly since the beginning i know that ;-)
Even more that’s the reason i made this thread. It happened in tyrant because the large mass of nonpay player qqed and raged for nearly a year until the devs had to give in.
So if it needs here a year too of qq and rageing then it means: the sooner we start spaming threads like this one the sooner it will be like we want it. :-)

as one of the oldest ex- tyrant players.. i can tell you it wasnt because of the raging.. it was because of teh qutting. there was a HUGE exodus of players. I watched so many top 10, top 30 guilds fall apart because players just left in DROVES. it wasnt because they heard people. it was because 99% of the players left were less than 1 or 2 months old at some points in the game and all the whales quit when their friends quit or their guilds fell apart.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Guide; combining (with math)

Originally posted by coolguy31337:

I can give a easy counterexample while it’s better to combine more cards. The base rate of combining rares into epics is 9%, and it costs 900 Silver, +300 per card above the fourth.

If you continue using only 4 cards, you have a 27% chance at 900 Silver. The expected amount of tries you need is 1 * 27% + 2 * (27% * 73%) + 3 * (27% * 73% * 73%) + … (You calculate expected value by multiplying a result, the number of tries, by the probability of the result happening). This is an infinite series which should come out to around 3.7. You are spending on average 3.7 * 900 = 3390 Silver and using 9-13 cards.

If you instead decided to try to combine 12 cards, you would have a 99% chance of success at 3000 Silver.

The reason your approach comes out incorrectly is that your math doesn’t take into account that the probabilities actually form a geometric series, so that the chance of success is not mulplicative. When you try to combine 4 cards a lot of times, the chance of success is not the same as when you try to combine 12 cards once.

I think the biggest problem with all this is assuming 33% means 33%. I’m a fairly new player. I stocked up with good gems to try and upgrade my equipment. 1 green gem on rank 0 equipment = 33% chance right? I did a pair. sword + armor. you would think 33% means to get 2 upgrades i should expect e(3) = 1 right? on average? but no. 15 gems spent to get the sword to rank 1. (doing 1 gem at a time. thats 15x 33%= 1). Then I did the sword. 21×33%. E(6) = 2. But instead O(36) = 2. 6x more than I expected to spend.

So yeah… For stuff with abysmally low s like epic → legend… sure. you are really rolling the dice anyways. but on the stuff you CAN control and get up to a decently high %?…. just do it. I could have DEFINITELY spent 3 gems for 100 to enchant my sword to rank 1, then another 3 to get my helm to rank 1.
There’s something to be said about averages. The lower the probability, the higher the variance. That is… assuming the devs didn’t rig the game to begin with.
You gotta remember e(x) means absolutely NOTHING because its theoretical. What matters is the OBSERVED result.

For 20,000 silver you get a single card:

40% chance of blue
40% chance of purple
20% chance of orange

i can only laugh about u
u want for 20000 silver the same chance for legend as u get in a king pack?

Yeah.. thats gotta be worth at least 40k silver. And I bet people would buy for silver at that rate too.

I know quite a bit of players that are under 18, including myself. Being 16 it’s hard for me to find a job, considering I can’t drive in my state and I have no way of commute. That said, this is a really wise move. Reward the ones that pay and shit on those that can’t. Good move, we love you.

Get a bike. Get a job doing stuff for the neighbors (mowing the lawn, babysitting, tutoring.. etc) I’ve done all 3.

But yeah… gamefuse really needs to do maint when people are ASLEEP. Do it at 2am to 6am server time. I mean it IS a NA server right? 6pm -12am is THE ONLY time to play for people who work. I get up at 5, out of the house by 6am. work all day, come home.. server maint. great. I can forget about playing your game. And if I cant play I certainly wont PAY. If you want me to pay, make sure I’m able to PLAY. nuff said.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / better than tyrant?

Originally posted by Hetchman:

Once I heard Tyrant went from blatantly P2W to reasonably free to play, I logged back in the other day and burned through some quests. It was stale and boring after playing some of the other CCGs available on Kong. Tyrant seriously needs to update their game mechanics.

Is Kings and Legends the best CCG out there?? Meh, jury is still out. It’s decent though. If you get in with a good group of people it can be seriously fun and addicting. But there’s always the moments where you want to smash the dev’s face in with a hammer. Mostly when you are out doing your 2vs2 guild quest and get crushed by a pay to win player with a mitt full of orange and red cards.

Overall it’s a pretty good game. Better for me than tyrant anyways.

Wait wait.. when did this happen? When I was playing it was reasonably f2p. then when summon came in it went all the way to the darkside of p2w.
