So maybe I’m lucky or my computer setup was just right. It always worked for me. Doesn’t matter what map it is.

Topic: Lionheart Tactics: General / This Game Needs

In case you didn’t realize, you CAN plan the initial formation. I always do. When selecting your heroes, remove all the default heroes and add them back one at a time. The order in which the heroes appear during the game is affected by the order of the heroes in the initial selection screen.

Topic: Ground War: Tanks / NERFING the T18

Seriously, I think the T-18 is a deathtrap. The plate on the right side of the turret is so weak and its SO LARGE. If you’re a TD you could one shot the T-18.

I’ve picked off 3 T-18s at once before with an AT-1. Mostly newbies who are unaware of the giant weakness on their turret and think their tank is invulnerable.

Topic: Lionheart Tactics: General / The thing wrong with this game

Not sure, maybe you just have very very bad luck. This is my first week in this game and I have 2 warriors and a halberdier drop in I think 5 silver purchases.

Topic: KingsRoad / Event box strategy

It IS pretty rare, but I have a bow drop in this event. Sometimes I have to buy the main weapon with DS myself but even with DS included, I never ever had to cross 30 runs. I doubt I am exceptionally lucky and I spend no money on this game.

Topic: KingsRoad / Event box strategy

I see a lot of people (especially on facebook) grumbling about how it takes 40, 50, 60 runs to not get a full set and frankly I have never taken more than 30 runs to get my sets before (assuming not aiming for full elite). I average between 20 to 25 runs.
So I am putting down a few points which should have been obvious (but seems not to be) and a few not so obvious points which I picked up (I have no proof, but it works for me).

1) This is proven: Do NOT open your boxes all at once. You can do your runs all at once but do not open all your boxes at the same time.

Example 1: Do 20 runs on lockbox Sunday, open 3 or 4 a day until Saturday.
Example 2: Do 5 runs on first day of event and open the boxes (some people say the drops are good on first day). Do 15 on lockbox Sunday open 3 from Monday to Friday.

With strategy 1, I rarely have to do week 2. I have done strategy 2 only once (my current Yeti slayer). I have full set week 1 with 3 elite pieces on 25 runs.
I am not running anymore because I have also full Dragon stone from previous events.

2) This is speculation: Your drops are determined by a combination of the date and time when you open the box.

Sub speculation 1: You can use another lockbox to give you an indicator on whether you are “lucky” or not. For example before I open event box I open exp box first.
If I get a top tier exp, I open my event box immediately.
I get my bow / quiver / elite this way, but of course correlation is not causation.

Sub speculation 2: If you know someone is getting lucky and you know where he is playing from, change your locale settings to match his, restart and you could get equally lucky.
Happened to me once. True story :P.

3) This is speculation but very strong personal experience: Every day there are one or two types of armor that will commonly drop for you. Spreading out your opening should improve your chances of making a set.
If you open no more than 3 or 4 boxes a day (with careful testing as mentioned in 2.1), you should get at least one equipment. (I know some people complain about getting 5 ds in a row. I have never experienced that.)

This is my experience. If you follow at least point 1, I’m confident you will not be grinding 50 or 60 to get your set.

This is the reason tokens are deducted at the start of an event map. =)

Well you could always have a score lock box instead of a direct score entry. You’re already have some variation of this in tournament right?

Topic: KingsRoad / Kingsroad FAQs and Tips

Nice guide, but some comments:

Point #4: In case you haven’t noticed ;) it is also available at kongregate.com and yahoo. Also, after the big North America server crash, by examining the URLs used on the browser, I found that kongregate accounts are actually just ids fed to facebook. If you feed in parameters correctly, you can log into your kongregate character from facebook.

Point #7: I disagree, Archer is best facing single enemies. Wizards are more useful taking on group enemies. I feel the game balance is highly tilted towards Archers. (Note, I am an Archer).

I think this is mainly you. I never had any of the described errors. Only sometimes the chat is empty, but refreshing usually helps.

Topic: KingsRoad / Goodbye -Not To Rumble-

Good choice. But I’m not sure what has changed really. Bugs, crappy RNG, magic disappearing gems and inventory items, Snide smileys, hackers, they’ve all been part of the game from the day I started.

Bear in mind this game is influenced by Zynga refugees…so I’m not sure why you have such high expectations. I myself never spent a dollar on this game so nothing can be taken from me but time. Time which I would have wasted on some other equally foul game anyway.

Topic: KingsRoad / Solving the freeloader problem

Maybe I can speak your language anon. You had to struggle to get your gear didn’t you? Every free player has roughly the same amount of tokens available (depending on how hard you farm).

Now imagine if nobody had to worry about running a difficult event and got their locked box directly from tokens. (Essentially anybody who wanted to pass the event got to pass the event). Then all it boils down to is luck. A guy could join and get a full relic set in a week if he got lucky enough.

I suppose you would feel good about that? Remember what comes around goes around. Eventually you too will be a veteran, can you continue to say what you say?I am no doubt interested in keeping my power. I had earned it with continuous play. Anybody who worked for something will want it protected.

But I think the artificial power level is a hard cap. My position isn’t about putting a hard cap but about making sure people don’t get a free ride. If they participate and kill their share, they should get their drop.

That’s strange, because I can see my power jack up when I consume a 2 minute pot…is that a bug?

Power isn’t good, I can just jack up my power with pots temporarily.

If they stop after I decline it wouldn’t be a problem, I’m happy to do this. But some of these guys are PERSISTENT. Like half and hour of continuous invite.

Topic: KingsRoad / Solving the freeloader problem

It’s a problem because you get spammed the moment you step in. Come on anybody who has a certain level of power will automatically get spammed invites to the gills. Unless there’s a block invite option I’m not aware of.

Oh well it would save me from answering spammers the hard way — strip down my gear in game and suicide. Spammers remember the pain of losing tokens.

Well the actual percentage can be moved until fair, but in reality for a party doing a plat run any member doing at least 20% is obviously doing his/her share and not being carried.

Topic: KingsRoad / Solving the freeloader problem

Hmm point taken. Anyway KISS principle indicates point 2 is too much work anyway. The more work rumble has to do, the more bugged to hell the game would be.

EDIT Note I said multiple. So if two people dropped to 3280 it will still not be less than (1.0)X (2 people) = 2X all stats. Which will still be a pain in the neck to complete

But I think % of damage is a better idea. More idiot-proof. Harder to screw-up coding-wise.

You can beg all you want but if you aren’t tough enough to chomp at least 30% of total damage you get nada, zip. So automatically begging gets cut off.
