Topic: Global Assault / HA ha whales FU

Looks like roughly $700, if you have:
$100 = 1150 kreds
$700 = 8050 kreds

1150 kreds = 1700 VC
$700 = 11900 VC

Looks like the top VC pack lines up perfectly with the kred pack.

I just had a bait and switch pulled on me in the tavern. I pulled a korina card, which brought me from 5/12 to 6/12, as well as a gold bar. next time I go to the tavern, it shows the two cards I pulled last as the gold bar, and an ice key where korina was. now her hearts are back down to 5/12 and I have an ice key I didn’t before. anyone else have this problem, because there’s skewing the odds unfavorably, and then there’s down right dishonesty, and this is definitely the latter.

This just happened to me as well, though Korina was replaced with a Ham for me as the event is over.

If this all occurs in the month of January I’d call that fast.

As for the laptop winner the person has to submit information proving they legally can win the contest, be verified, then the winner list gets posted. Have some patience, you don’t want them announcing player X wins, then player X was in Australia, so player Y wins, but player Y doesn’t respond so player Z wins, etc.

Topic: Global Assault / Hardest units to obtain on pulls please post your thoughts

I don’t feel I can properly speak to 4 and 5 star units as the extent of my pulls is a single Zeus. For 3* units I’ve pulled enough to make a quad trident at this point if I had the scrap. I generally have enough jackhammers and thunderbirds as my two most common 3* pulls (even over common 3* units). I have yet to pull a single needler which is starting to impact my squad growth so I would love for the devs to give more of the guaranteed pull timed crates such as when you are starting as I’d happily buy one. My third most common 3* is tied between Falcon and Fury having pulled 6 of each at this point.

Topic: The King of Towers / What sorcery is this!?

Although BP relates to PvP power it is not directly linked. Certain factors assist more with the tower defense portion such as leveling towers, while other items assist more with PvP such as technology. Additionally a portion of the PvP result is luck. If you are in the top 100 you can use compare to see specifics of the opponents build.

Topic: The King of Towers / And the winners are:

Yes kongregate tournaments are real, I’ve never won a grand prize though I have won kreds from them more than once. Notifying a winner takes time, having a winner verify who they are takes time. A winner will exist, but please don’t ask every day, its likely the winner list won’t occur until some time in February at the earliest. Kongregate is a major website owned and operated by Gamestop Corporation, and can not afford bad press from fake tournaments.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Angel Investor Formula changed?

Don’t stress the fact that resetting too often hurts final angel count, this only comes into play around 20-200+ resets after end game, and the resets done up to that point will have so little of an effect its not worth noting. Instead just focus on resetting at optimal times to further your capitalist dreams.

Topic: Global Assault / Ripoff

Why complain about high prices? Low prices are much worse. Do you think I’m crazy yet? Allow me to explain:

Lets take three situations:

A: Prices are considered absurdly high compared to in game gain
B: Prices feel about right compared to in game gain
C: Prices feel really really low compared to in game gain (say $1 for a 4* unit)

In situation C the F2P player loses very badly, and many P2W players stomp on them while only minimally supporting further development.

In situation A the F2P player finds many other F2P opponents and is on a roughly even field, if a person spends $20 in this game although they have a boost its not game breaking. If a player spends $1000+ to get an amazing unit such as quad defiance then they have an OP unit and have also likely significantly boosted the developer desire to continue advancing the game.

In situation B whales are less common, and the game likely earns roughly the same amount as pay ceilings exist, as a paying player you have an advantage, and as a F2P player you encounter a mix of F2P and P2W folks while feeling a need to pay in order to continue.

Situation A is THE MOST friendly toward F2p when still monetized.

Topic: The King of Towers / Biggest mistake I've made in KoT..!

My biggest mistake was when first using ham (turkey leg), the game lagged so I clicked a couple more times, and it proceeded to consume all 30 of them, and 12 diamonds in exchange for 3 more…. Got me relatively annoyed though I’m now much more careful with clicks that have anything to do with diamonds.

Because it will never happen. Never. For lots of reasons like Multi-account / less money for Devs / it never happened in WMT and TU for these reasons too / It would kill guilds / etc..

Topic: Global Assault / Help me explain this

Irrelevant of free kreds, when you have free kreds in general you may as well buy two of the 50 kred packs to end up with 100 volt coins and 10 kreds rather than feel shorted 5 kreds. The two key thoughts are buying the odd packages if you need a specific number of volt coins for something, or when volt coins go on sale (happens often enough it is worth waiting for in general).

Topic: The King of Towers / VIP 8.

Once you have made enough kred purchases (not sure how many) kongregate does offer larger kred purchases that brings the value of a kred down to roughly 6.9 cents. All the same monetized games should offer incentive for small purchases, and still offer value no matter how much you spend. Although a small percent of players are “whales” they make up potentially a very large percent of game income. F2P people are content for paying players, and it is important to keep them around, just remember where money comes from. The kongregate developer sight has some great insights into this:

You may all be joking, but this is still stronger and less expensive than some of the quad units currently in game so….
