Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Gifting friends suggestion

Would it be possible to have a “gift all” button for convenience to send out to friends instead of having to individually click 200+ times? Also would it be possible to be able to sort which kind of gifts you want to accept similar to the search/filter so we don’t have to search through 999 pending gifts to find the 50 we want?

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Poorly designed

big insect is what 1150? x50 gifts/day thats 57,500 coins?. 3cp x50 is 150cp can buy 1.66 cp packs with an average of 20,000-30,000 coins per pack is about 41,000 coins plus a small chance for a legend that sells for 80-100k. so 57k vs 41k pretty close but also I am saving up cp in case they come out with new pack or cards that you can use cp for (wishful thinking) I have over 30,000cp saved up atm and not really needing coins atm but I can cash in those cp at any time for coins if I need them, It’s nice to have options imo.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Poorly designed

There is quite a bit you can do while waiting for energy, such as doing free battles vs friends to earn card pieces or you can try your hand at a few games in arena to aim for cards/duel points. Also how you spend your energy is important as well like trying to accomplish your objectives to level up which gives you 100 energy, all of the treasure chest objectives once completed also give you 100 energy. Some of the objectives do not require energy at all such as buying selling and crafting cards which will help you level up. You can farm coins by doing ambushes but it is more time efficient to just farm cp from friends duels to buy cp packs for cards or you can sell them to earn some coins while waiting. The chat rooms and community is very friendly as well and there are those who engage in friendly conversation as well as strategy and deck ideas which can help pass the time. The energy system has been under review for a long time and they are in the process of changing it as we speak and it will be implemented any week now, the community has spoken (from Kongregate) and they are in fact changing it.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / New cards abit unfair?

you want cards fresh out of the shop to compete with the top cards of the arena? That’s true but it does tend to get op. Combining those with only the current arena rewards could give a huge edge to those who got them, you dont say?:O isnt that the point of competing in arena and getting the “Top” cards? lol

Actually there are 6 cards in the shop that have break immunity one even has break immunity + share fate that dont even cost dp, 4 of them cost coins and 2 of them cost card pieces. Thats not even counting story rewards.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Arena weekly reset

its not just me its everyone that I have asked in the chat/community, yea I cleared my cache to make sure. This also happened a few weeks ago and I mentioned it to you before and you fixed it back then I guess its a reoccurring problem x.x as you can see the Monday challenge loaded instantly as well as the bamgo daily free spin but the top 3 arena rewards winners is 2 weeks old now. http://gyazo.com/057ce318dde631bb6b78d5bd5d933f6c

When exactly does the arena points for the news tab reset. At the moment it is still displaying the top 3 from 2 weeks ago. Shouldn’t it be updated with the Monday challenge when the new arena is refreshed and every ones scores are set back to 0?

Nope :P as I said before the problem kind of fixes itself after I toggle to the story and then back to arena once or twice but it seems to reoccur every time I refresh or log in, here I took the liberty of taking some screenshots all within 30seconds of eachother.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Glitch

Found a possible glitch, I don’t know if it is happening only to me or what but anyways. When I refresh the page or log on when I go into a game or the edit deck page all of the friends cards are somehow defaulting to 0 friends and it will stay that way until I go into the story mode and then the game registers that I have friends. If I refreshed and started in the story mode all my friends avatars are blank and it is as if I have no friends.

If you put in “A BAM from the past” with old arena rewards such as armed ninja and alien dog etc I am sure they would sell like hotcakes instead of trying to sell a card like ushi oni for 35dp when you can get him in a 90cp pack

Do you know how hard it is for a free player to even get 30 000 points in a week in the arena? It’s next to IMPOSSIBLE. Without specifically purcahsed, high-level cards this game is a joke. I win maybe 6/10 games I play in the arena, and because of that the amount of points I make off any individual fight never really goes above 400, and is usually around 100. How do you get ANY of those cards or DP with that kind of record?

LOL, have you even completed the game yet or farmed the stars challenge? If you did you would get roughly 20 legendary cards as well as over 100dp, not to mention possibly earning more dp and legends from bamgo in the 2-3weeks it takes to play the game all the way through. There is also another persons post on another forum explaining how they farmed 100k arena points weekly just by using cards they bought in the shop with coins and cp it sounds like you should read it and might learn something =)

Well I like the discussion. When we developed something it had a meaning / a point why we did so. And giving in just in the first round is like saying “Yes, we created shit”. I’m totally not that opinion. I like this game very much. And I like to hear all of your ideas and to discuss them with you and the same time I try to make you understand why the game is as it is which does not mean that we can improve certain features.

And I must say: I really like the way that this forum is communicating (thanks to every single one of you!).

How about this? Instead of having to do with the top Arena rewards, make the Arena points a new form of currency (we can purchase Booster Packs and some cards with that). I agree that the top Arena rewards should only be given to the best players. But how about the players who fall out of the top 50 (for example, the player who got 51st place, 52nd place, and so on). There should be at least a form of consolation for them, something to say that all their scores in the Arena aren’t in vain. In a way, my suggestion is to make some way so that our wins in the Arena won’t be wasted.

They already have consolation prizes for anyone who participates in the arena, you get coins, card pieces, 30 duel points, and even rares ultra rares and a legend card not even counting the top 3 arena cards. I guess you forgot about that when you made that comment about peoples scores being in vain and their wins being wasted.

From my personal standpoint I spend about 7-10m coins a week on arena to get a score of 800kish while losing maybe 1-3 games for the entire week. On top of that I am making over 10,000 card pieces and 30dp a week just from the arena not counting the daily gifts farming 3 cp from friends duels or the new bamgo, in the past I used those card pieces to purchase packs and then sold all the cards I got for more coins(these past 2 weeks Ive been hoarding cp and now have over 20k). There was even 2-3 weeks that I managed to make more coins than I spent for arena, I have found a system that works for me that is enjoyable lets me play for fun and have it down to a science to pay for my arena indefinitely.

Darja, this is why new players get all mixed up and confused as you are spreading false information (by randomly pulling numbers out of a hat). The actual numbers don’t lie and are accurate and backed up by the wiki.

You can say that you sustainably make money off CP and the 30 weekly free DP, but it is not factually correct as you would be losing (a lot of) money each week. Losing arena battles isn’t a big deal because I personally lose maybe 5 a week myself. Also, doing more arena battles actually hurts your return on investment because the rising cost far outweighs the potential 30 CP from 5 battles.

You stated you win 10k CP on arena, but your arena score typically would have to be closer to 1.45 million each week, and I have seen many people say that red had the prior high weekly score ever at 1.2 million on Kongregate.

Your friend CP duels are capped at a max of 1500 CP/day which is accessible only if you have 500 friends that you duel daily. Max daily gifts is 150 CP/day.

Using all your CP numbers, you could make around 5 million off CP packs which is still below your 7-10 million cost estimate. It’s FAR below what the actual cost to do all those arenas you indicated though which would be more in line with 20 million to make 10k CP/week off arena alone. The wiki information is what it is and pretty much makes a cost outline that cannot be up for debate.

I have no personal problem at all with you as you are friendly to talk to and generally help all the new people. At the same time, you cannot say you have something down to a science and then throw out arbitrary numbers that do not even come close to supporting your claims.

I was basing my numbers off estimates based on my experience not googling and using wiki to find precise numbers of what other people make ;/ since you want to get super technical and precise I took the liberty of spending 2mins on wiki and a little online calculator but it feels a little petty. the info according to wiki that you mentioned before 25 refreshes a day 710850 ending weekly score 6125000 total coins spent for the week, 25 refreshes x 30 cp per refresh x 7 days in the week = 5,250cp/30dp from arena 150cp gifted 7 days is 1,050cp, 1,500cp dueling friends daily is 10,500cp(no I dont farm that much but Ill put that in there to satisfy your need for precise numbers) which puts the grand total at 16,800cp and 30dp every week is roughly 186 * 90cp packs and then the 2 15dp packs. After selling all the cards I will make around 6mil coins back sometimes more. Was that technical enough for you? You don’t want to turn this forum into our personal argument over how much I spend and earn on arena every week do you?

You shouldn’t rate a game 1/5 simply because you assumed it was going to be something different and YOU were wrong, you should rate a game based on the game itself.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Arena Reward Structure Suggestion

I like the way the arena is now ;o with the only exception being that the top 1-3 prize is not always necessarily the best card, there is often times when the top 50 card is the best which seems a little backwards to me. I read the previous posts speculating on costs to support an arena earning of 700-800k points a week and I just laughed. From my personal standpoint I spend about 7-10m coins a week on arena to get a score of 800kish while losing maybe 1-3 games for the entire week.

Give spells, life points. Spells are still underpowered no matter how you look at it. Most monsters have abilities that are as good if not better than most spells out there and those monsters have 2,000 sometimes 3,000 life points, this is a big deal when you are talking about 4 to 5 cards in your deck they add up a lot. Another point I would like to make about spells is you don’t always get to play your entire deck sometimes you will win or lose with several cards remaining that are left unplayed this factor is extremely big, that spell that is buried on the bottom did absolutely nothing to help and if you had a monster with 3,000 life points buried at the bottom even though he did not help because you didn’t use him he still at least contributed 2,000 or 3,000 life points which is a lot. Using a monster also more advantageous because they will do damage and block damage being taken on top of their abilities where as a spell can’t do all of that. I would also like to see more creatures be able to not only protect a spell or spells but also do more than just that so they aren’t just little babysitters for the spells and almost completely useless aside from that. As it is now it is actually more harmful than helpful for me to use a spell in my deck, I am constantly playing against the top players in the arena where they all have 3 jinzos 3 toy magicians and god knows what else to destroy a spell, and when I play a spell it buffs the enemy monsters and the spell is destroyed in .01 seconds virtually every single time I play a spell so it doesn’t even get to do anything except buff the enemy player and this is not even counting the life point differential. Sorry if this suggestion seems more like a rant :P its just I see all these cool spells and based on the meta game it’s like “Oh I wish I could use all those cool neat things” but I can’t because I will end up making battles much more difficult with them than without.

Update and possibly have new weekly deals in the shop, I know you guys do daily promotional cards for dp but I think having deals with the little 3card packs inside the store for coins card points and duel points would make the shop more appealing. It is a good concept but feel that the cards in there are too old and unappealing.

PLEASE MORE STORY LINE!!!! way more chapters and cities!!!! This game needs a lot more content to explore and more battles/story. Were you guys ever going to implement true player versus player arena? or take away the 1x a day dueling limit vs friends? sometimes friends and I will be in the chat and want to test different cards and decks out by challenging each other in friendly sport but we are seriously limited to playing each other in fun outside of the arena.

Expand the crafting aspect of the game? Currently you cannot craft a single series 2 card, I like the crafting idea but I feel that its way underused seeing as how most of the cards you can craft are old and outdated/obsolete compared to the newer stronger cards that have been released over the last few packs. I feel you could really improve this part of the game enabling players to craft more useful even BAM Legend cards through the crafting system and still allow players to purchase packs and cards from the shop required to craft the series 2 cards and legends overall. Even if you needed to use 2 Legend cards to craft a stronger legend card. I would love to see the crafting system be improved and usable for all experienced level players new and old.
