Topic: Global Assault: General / Seriously?

Lets be clear, the $6-$594 number is low. For non crate buying players, I feel you can have a competitive 400 SP squad with various units including grey eagle, dirge, oni, hunter, crusher, myrmidon, sandstorm, trident, zeus, raider, spitfire, cerberus, etc That’s 12+ units, likely 2-3 spots are guaranteed to be GE, still leaving play with a squad that either bursts through quickly, or builds in strength. Raids will likely also add to this diversity with 2 or more new non crate units, while I’d LOVE to see some new ones, possibly involving fusion with falcon or wolverine, there is ample free content to be had for many many months of competitive enjoyment. For top end units, its important to understand volt coin to dollar price.

Lowest price is sale, highest is best everyday bulk package
1 VC = .575-.82 kreds
1 kred = $0.074-$0.087

So 100 VC is between $4.25-$7.13

To obtain a Dread Medusa you will spend 17860 and 23760 VC

This unit costs $760 and $1700, likely a cost closer to $1400 if you buy kreds right now, and have average luck, though along with this you will have ample scrap, and the option to also make quad bee, casper, and badger twice.

Any player willing to spend that much on this game has provided a sizable incentive for developers to continue to produce content for both the whales and free players in order to keep this game going. I have no aspiration of ever competing with people who contribute that much, though I’m still having fun.

Lastly a word on crates, they are directed at whales, if you are a late game player, unless you can afford to buy the crate out multiple times you should not buy it at all. Even great units from crates start to feel weak unless you can fuse them, and generally these great units are 1 per crate buyout.

I forget the name, but one guy I come accross shows 0 squad power, he has ~370 though, and is definitely a PvP target, not vargas as I can beat him consistently.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / What's going on with Offline Calculations?

I’m consistently not having any issues, three factors I think MAY play a roll in this based on what others have discussed:

Adblockplus (sorry)
Firefox
Close Tab adcap is in while still having browser open

Things I can think may affect your different builds:
Kongregate kreds integration (definitely still in this version) This part in particular would act differently even if an identical game is hosted elsewhere, as this pulls old purchases at launch such as angel investors prior to switch over from kreds to in game gold

Kongregate api integration can cause some buggy things if you still have it (unsure as high scores are disabled, and no achievements present)

unity version people are running, as unity updates occasionally have surprisingly dramatic changes

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Still no offline earnings? Are you kidding me?

I’ve not had an issue when ensuring I keep my browser open, but close the tab that adventure capitalist is running in. I also use firefox, which may affect things as well. All the same, no more patches until the next expansion, which will bring its own fixes/bugs.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Reducing Multipliers

I have a handful of multipliers I’ve bought since this game was released, and in general I’m happy to have them. I’m curious though if with the new version we could choose to disable some of them, for example reducing a larger multiplier value down to a 3x or 9x rather than an all or nothing situation.

My hope is to get to fully enjoy the release of the Moon content without blowing through it, while still knowing I could just re-enable the multipliers if I chose at a later date without needing to either mess with import/export or a different browser.

Topic: The King of Towers / Bugs

One other trick for boss clash is send more soldiers from groups that are stronger, for example if you don’t have Durin, consider lowering troops from cannon towers, while sending full troops of those you have upgraded soldiers.

The event item in tavern replaces ham each time. If you dislike the event item you can choose to exclude it just as you likely do with the ham.

Anyone else having a problem with the World Boss counter counting down and then instantly resetting?
Multiple times I have been playing, waiting an hour or so for the world boss event. So when the event is about to start, I wait to be able to click to engage in the world boss event…Well, it never allows me to. Even if I click on it, I cannot enter it. And then the timer just resets once it hits 0:00. And the event never occurs.

The world boss event occurs twice daily, participation in one of the two prevents you from joining the other. If this is not your issue try switching to a different browser such as firefox / chrome and let us know if you are still having trouble.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Weird Upgrade glitch

Lets clear one thing up, photosensitive epilepsy is not something to pretend you have, and this type of flickering is unlikely to trigger it.

All the same the flickering is annoying, I made a point of just looking away and spamming out the cash upgrades so I didn’t have to see it.

Topic: Global Assault: General / 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: General / 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.
