Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Great Game

I couldn’t say that the game is good (still i’m in the beginning and hit some glitches), but the art is great! Really – great gongratz to the artist and the team! The game mechanics has a lot of good ideas, so +1 and for that!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] This game is broken

Well. First – to play the arena, i think… i need to finish one campaign. Right? So i need a new hero and i need money for it. With this , we return to the beginning of my problem.

Second – now i sell few cards from the undead deck, and buy Holy hero…
finish the campaign without to lose even one battle! Try again with undead… same luck. The last battle is totally tough. Not bad… just tough. I will succeed when have luck or better cards. The problem was… that is possible glitch with the money in the beginning. Specially with new players.

JeffoANTIC – i believe you are good ;). There is the problem too. The test must be made from much people, that not play this game before (even better if few of them are never playing this kind of games). Then you can find a bunch of glitches. Like this one i think.

“So that said, we are actually addressing this in an update today. You will be able to replay a campaign battle and receive a reward, should you find yourself in a stuck state.”
This is great! Really. Will fix all problems for me. The battles are nice, fast and interesting. So if you have even much smaller reward from the main one that you receive when you win for first time – will be enough.

Great to have such good support! You have +1 from me! ;) Now i try the arena too… ;) :D

I’m on the same opinion as FrozenFlame320. Maybe not so… extreme, but is annoying very much. And really is looks like – that the creators didn’t test the game much.

I play Undead and stuck on the final battle. Which is ok – need to be tough – it’s tough! But! I have only 1400 gold… can’t afford a new hero. I can buy one booster, but if it not help me? What will do?

I return to the first battle, and replay it. O.o.! No gold from it. Try on hard… the PC beat me like a Ogre smash a rabbit! Try it 10 times… total lose. So.. from where i can have at least 100 gold for new hero?

I understand that i made a mistake – buying boosters (maybe the creators didn’t think their players to be so stupid), but i wanted to finish first the campaign and then to go for the next. Is this so bad?

P.S.: i found that can sell some of my cards… but this is some kind – sad. I don’t have very much cards… and some are nice, but need to sell them, to buy a hero, play new campaign, gather money from there – so i can buy new boosters, so i can finish my previous game… : / :? Sounds weird!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Waraxe] Waraxe or ... ?

Aye.
First… want to say – it was nice talk. I enjoy to discuss the game… because as i say before – there (were) few things that i like. And i will not write if i didn’t like something in the game. Pure hating is useless (for me).

Second – this is my point of view, but all my suggestions was based on – what will make the game more suitable for Me.

Now… Aenarion – you suggest that we command just part of the army… but if is like this – for my taste – is also not presented well.
And all of the conversation now become where my taste is “right” or not and vice versa. I apologize if i turn the theme to this narrow road. Is not good, but i wanted to share my disappointment.

The game is not new (i think is published in other game sites and maybe has it’s own site… i don’t dig much), so i guess… all my words goes in vein.
And – yes. I think is really pointless to continue, because i agree with Antigaprime – it can’t change my mind about the game.
And – i cant change your mind (and i don’t want) Aenarion or to every body liking the game. Because i see that… you really like it. So this is great stuff! And the game designers make a good hit. Still i think it can be better with a little… But i think this, because i’m from the opposite site ;)

So. Have fun and good play!

P.S.: Aenarion said : "If you actually knew a bit more about tactics… " now, this is complicated thing and is not good to give such a conclusions. Maybe i know? Maybe i study and have practice? But this is complicated matter and every real Tactician will laugh on us, because nothing can be put in simple sentence (or it will be like Zen quote). Yet i simplify my answer, because my post become long from longer.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Waraxe] Waraxe or ... ?

Ya. Almost agree with you.
Just don’t like how is realized here. I mean, that in story mod i never fight with weaker opponents*. Witch is ridicules, because (i’m undead) I attack them. In real life… nobody weaker will attack stronger force, when has no chance to succeed (only if is pushed in the corner) or is 50/50. About this – i also can’t agree. In “real life” nobody make a fight in equal terms (only the duels, but this is not the matter and there is a lot of “but”-s and “if”-s); You always try to put your enemies in disadvantage. Or to attack, when he is weak!

Here – this is not possible. The only possible fights to influence are this 50/50… and maybe with (let’say) +10% if you choose some right combo. Now i test the fight without using a skill. My enemy has the equal force (i just have better stacks + better skills for this fight). And just don’t play…. only push the button for the next round. And guess what: I win 10 time one after another… with losing 50% of my army!!? My hero, my reserve and my cavalry…
Is this close to the real life?

And in real life, in battle is much better to “kill” everything**, rather than – give them the opportunity to reorganize and strike back. Destroying a squad for short time in the eyes of the other ally is… much more “devastating” for the moral, than just give them the opportunity to flee (e, there is no rule… the matter is to win!). If in the game was some bonuses (like fleeing stack gives penalties to the other stacks in the line, or at least… destroying all of the opponents forces to give you some funds in the end reward) and conditions that can chain witch each other***… will be something. But is not (or i not see… i’m in the second part (still in the beginning, i know));
….
But as i say – i’m almost agree… and the big part is “agree”. Because this is game and as such need to satisfy some players taste. It not works for me. I play only for the art and some interesting game mechanics (i endorse board games), but find the battles random. Not challenging (for me).

And very much agree with that:
LotusB:
“The most common problem of all games in our days – they are too easy, too much arcade, only few buttons, no skill required and people asking all the time to make it even more easyer…”
You can find this in even “serious” games (but will not say names, to not detract from the theme). But is better the difficulty to come from sane matters – not from stupid controls, not from useless ideas (or lack of ideas at all).

The last part of your post is iron, man. Good words and true!

1* Aye… i CAN fight with weaklings, after i go forward in the story and to re-play some old fights… but this is just for grinding.
2* Is sad but true… because of that very often we read in history books, how the villages and people was burned, butchered and destroyed to dust. Because total destruction instil fear: “If you not step back and surrender, you will be slaughtered as this one… no mercy, no respite!”
3* Like, attacking a fleeing stack is making the others stacks in the line more susceptible to fear. Or when some stack is in “fear” condition, he receive greater damage, or… can use only defend, but is nor fleeing… And then, using “fire spell” on it – is “sure success” to make it flee and do greater damage. And so on…

Hm. Maybe i was not clear enough.
The problems (i guess, i’m not expert) come from the expectation of the people. In the beginning the game is look with simple pace, that will give you a lot of things… but soon you realize that you need to fight for your survival. You are not conqueror… you’re some weakling. And need to put a lot of efforts to become something more (and i guess you never be a real “tank” (until you not buy some good things, of course)).

Well, frankly – i don’t like how this is realized. But i will continue to play… maybe to the moment that i’m totally disgusted… But I will continue to play, because the game has great art. I like it very much… so… great congratz! to the artist and the designer that realize how important part of the game is this! ;)

Maybe you are right. I wish, but i doubt! Why?

Very often i lose battles from weaker enemies. And this is with very good tactics (how much is possible with the starting resources). For me, the system is broken… because is not giving much victory points for destroying an enemy groups. Is better to keep them in “escape”… they rally back and you “farm” them again. Often i beat that way with great difference in the points, when i destroy everything in the field… which is ridicules!

I mean: I lost a fight, when i have all my groups intact (1 hero, 1 elite, 3 core + 1 reserve), no escaping from them… and from his groups remain just 2 (from the same amount like mine)… one was escaping… So what you call that? I destroy one group in the beginning. Second in the second round! And still i lose…

In equal battles (which in the story mod are very rear, usually my opponents have much greater strength) is worse. There is 50% win/lose… and don’t know what tactics can help, because until the game not give you some better Formation, Magic and Troops, you barely survive. Don’t know how is the opposite campaign, but my troops are few, weak and the only way is to wait, farm and repeat again.

For the end – from your post i conclude that the game is just… not for me. Has specific style of slow pace and big waiting . Now, to discuss, is my tactic good/better and where i make mistake in my game… well… this is not the point. I think the root is that – the people expect more easy and simple pace. This game give something else. Hard fight and difficulty . For me this is not hard, is not difficult. Is simple farming. Waiting 15 clicks for good army and giving money to easy … what?… my farming.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Waraxe] Waraxe or ... ?

Well… i don’t know if i’m messing where is not my place. I’m pretty new in posting… usually, just play and go… ;)

But… i like the game. The art is very good and the ideas in it – well… let say, that they fit very much for my taste.

Sadly, i need to said with Antigaprime. I agree with almost anything what he say (and for witch i do not – is just from my lack of exp). The slow pace is not bad (for me), but is ridicules how little money i receive as reward and what i can buy with this money in the shop… so, yes… this is made to “purchase” stuff out of game… but come on! This is way too much.

For one hour play i barely can buy a skimpy “Gobbo gits”. And the only reasonable way to test the game is to wait few days, for some reasonable reward from the “Daily Click”…

I don’t see how i can progress further, because i receive all the reward in the first hour from the missions (that is possible to finish) and Tutorial. After that i can’t progress, because the battles are insane. The enemy have some elite units, more health and so on… So what i do? I don’t have resurses for “strategy planning”. Wait or buy? Huh…

P.S.: Excuse me for my bad english! And if by some way i broke some rule or mess where is not my place.
