Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Biggest Accomplishment of the Day in Anti-Idle

I had saved up a bit over 120k CC’s for the free Imps in 1665, but I hit 900k AA rep and decided to blow through a few to finish that.

So then I decided to keep going, and see if I could max my career too…from level 184.

Something like 270mil career exp. I knew it was going to take a lot of my ~120k crates, but I didn’t think it would be quite this much:

All of which resulted in this:

1 Impossible and 14 Hard ascensions, and many other things. Probably could’ve done it all within a 24 hr period as well, but due to how extremely exciting it is to chain-run AA’s, I could only manage an hour or so at a time.

Next time I do this, I really need to remember to take some before pictures…

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Why this Update blows! (V 2.0)

Haven’t read the thread, so I dont know how much of this has been covered, but here’s a list of things that have rustled my jimmies so far, in no particular order

-When the prices keep rolling over to say “Buy” or whatever the thing does, its annoying as hell. It takes less time to figure out the function of that button than it does to wait for Buy to scroll away so I can read the damn price. At least give me the option to turn it off.

-The “til’n” abbreviation is dumb, and doesn’t even save much space. Again, give options to turn it off, or maybe give us the option for scientific notation like people have been asking about FOREVER

-Achievements and stuff popping up in the lower left block the Donuts. You have a nice big chunk of space that’s blank down there, why does it need to stretch that far to cover the donuts. Visibility > that stupid bit of styling.

-The buy 1/10/100 thing sucks. So now with this system there’s a 50/50 chance that I’ll have to double-click the button to get what I want. That is superior to the old check-boxes, how? I’m sure someone spent a while making it look just so, but its just worse than the old system. Also badly placed since its in the same spot as the X to close windows, so if you accidentally double-click, or have a shitty mouse, its constantly changing what you wanted.

-Scrolling in any window – not everyone uses a tablet FFS. You could at least put a regular scroll bar on the side for normal people. If you scroll down the upgrade list to see how much further upgrades cost, its almost quicker to close the window and reload the game than scroll back up.

-Achievements window – just an estimate, but I’d say that over 50% of the screen is just meaningless static crap, leaving just a little bit for the huge achievement list. There’s 367 of them, and you can view 24 at a time, so you have to scroll over 11 times to get from top to bottom. The text box only needs 2 lines and could be much smaller to accommodate another line, and go at least 7 wide if not 8. Also, why blank out unearned achievements? How do I know what to go for? And if its just all 2x or 3x, whats the point of the secrecy?

-Upgrade window – just to mention the crap scrolling again. Seriously, what the hell. And with so many items on the cash list there’s noticeable lag every time you open it. Also IMO move the Angel Upgrades to the Investor tab, since there isn’t much point to it otherwise.

-Stats window – you could maybe give some sort of indication that it scrolls sideways, I dunno, hovering arrow or something. Everything else scrolls vertical, but this one gets to be special horizontal because…..what? Also, its a page for stats, and you know what stat I really would like to see? One that everyone would like to see and have been asking about for a while? SHOW ME MY $@^%ING OVERALL CASH/SECOND

So yea, overall much worse interface, but oooh there’s more colors now. I commend you on your stylistic choice, but I just think there were concessions to gameplay and usability in order to force the style, and its just not worth it.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Game Bugs

You take increasing drowning damage the longer you are in ED, and when it ticks it just gives you -1 combo, it doesn’t reset to 0. If it happens again, check your Current Feature tab in BA, and it’ll likely say something to the extent of “Death Penalty Ignored”

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / MEGATHREAD: Battle Arena

Never noticed personally, but looking at the Drop Mechanics guide, it looks like it has to do with Stat/Ring drops. If you get the buff extension from either drop, and have a buff over 60 min duration, or something besides Power/Reward/Mastery, you get Arena EXP instead.

IMO horde your RF’s unless you really need the Coins/GP. When v1665 comes out, you can feed a lot to your pet, and also trade them in for extra GP to unlock AAG plots faster.

Well thats handy I guess. Though I swear I tried it last ascension, which was an imp, so I should’ve had 301, and it didn’t let me buy.

Whatever, I’ll take it! Thanks for the answer.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / MEGATHREAD: Battle Arena

Can anyone explain this to me? As of 1664 you need 300 Temp Perk points to buy the Ultimate set. I have 74 Ascensions as pictured, which break down to 16 Impossible, 26 Hard, and 32 Medium. That should work out to a total of 16×7 + 26×3 + 32 = 112 + 78 + 32 = 222 Temp Perk points earned.

But I just bought the Ultimate set….

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Rebalancing Discussion

Is this system going to be time-based, or exp based? To use some made up numbers, lets say I gain 1.0T BA XP, and the multiplier goes down to 0.90×. Does that number come back up after a few hours, or does it stay down til I gain 1.0T non-BA XP? I mean, I guess the progress bar turns time into XP, but which one would matter for this DR system?

Also, I know its usually a rather taboo subject, but can I ask what the timeline looks like for v1665 release? I’m not asking for an exact date so I can call Tukkun a liar when its not there by then, but I’m just curious what the ballpark is. Are we looking at a matter of weeks? Months? A whole Martian year? Just curious.

Whats the best green bonus for mining pixels, +Pixel or Ignore rocks? For some reason I have it in mind that Ignore Finalizers is best, but that’s based entirely on a vague memory.

Also, I’m using an Unob Pickaxe, Crystal Armor, and mining in HC Triangle Land. Any suggestions on improving that? And again, really just after Pixels.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / 300%-400% anti-idle speed

Unless you plan on doing an ascension completely though progress rewards, I doubt its worth it. And if you are doing that, you probably won’t have 1.3mil BC to spend anyway. For that much you can get a couple days of rested and 1.5x XP/coin through LB’s, or like 50k+ Insta-progress through PB’s.

If you actually get them when you complete a hard ascension, whether you bought them in the first place or not, then definitely dont buy them, because a hard ascension isn’t that hard. But that sounds like a bug, you should just get features back, not complete new ones you didn’t have.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / MEGATHREAD: Battle Arena

This turned into a bit of a textwall, so TL;DR – I forgot how to play the game, have a u20 set and trying to figure out what next.

I’m coming back to this game after not playing for most of the past ~7 months, and only idling a few days at a time when I would play. But now I’ve started playing again, and while I’ve kinda gotten my bearings again within the game, I still dont have much of a direction to go in BA. I have some u20 gear, the old version HBB set I used to get it all, a collection of r500 weapons, G5, most crafted trinkets, and a lot of crafting supplies sitting around. I’m just not sure what I was planning to do next, nor do I know if I had a plan to begin with.

I’m thinking that the next step for me armor-wise is Dragon/Demon from ED. In fact, it more or less has to be, since I’m many ascensions from the Ultimate Set, and I really dont think I’ll ever do any sort of WM CHAOS again, so I wont be getting the u25 or whatever Apoc mode is. So, what I’m wondering is what level of Dragon or Demon do you need to reach before it starts to become an upgrade over u20? Also, can you reach those floors with u20 gear, because that’s all I have.

For a weapon, I mostly use a UIS finalized with ~2500 Atk and sadly only u3, but it kills most stuff in the face pretty good. I do have a ULS though that’s fully leveled, just needs enhancing, and I’m not real sure what to do with it. I want to unique it, so I’m not just going to throw Atk on it like I usually do. I’m thinking 3-4 speed rocks, bringing it from 12 to 20, and maybe a crit rock, but thats really only +5, what to do with the other 5? Accuracy? Growth rocks? I plan to use it mostly for Casual/HC ED, not WM, but its going to no doubt be mutli-purposed. But I’m going to spend the time uniquing it, so I want to make sure I get it right from the start.

And then for acessories, what’s good to use nowadays? My neck is an Unob Pendant with u10 from old SC, dunno how hard that is anymore. Is it still good, or is the new Immortal Pendant with its u20 better? And what about the element pendants, like is the Light one worth using in SC? And on earrings, are MBR still good? I dont think I’ll be making any Awesome Earrings anytime soon, so is there any other real option? All of my good ones expired, so all I’ve been able to scrounge up is Round ~140 Power/Exp. But the plan is just get higher level ones of those, unless I’m missing something. For Trinkets, I have Empowering and Rage Gem that I swap around, and some Mega Triangles that are mostly garbage. Are there any new upgrades on that front?

So does anyone know what I should be focusing on now? I’m thinking the best upgrade is probably uniquing a weapon, but that is going to take a while. And at what floor does ED stuff start to eclipse u20 CHAOS? These seem to be my two long term goals, but if anyone has any suggestions/corrections I’d love to hear them.

Had 30k Chaos Crates sitting around, so I decided to try and do one of those spiffy AA-driven Impossibles

Unfortunately, it didn’t work quite so well. I only have 170k rep, and was stupid about watching boost, so it took me almost 25k crates.

Is there even a good way to get boost above 3000? All I could come up with was Attendance Boxes, and dont have nearly enough to do a whole ascension. Oh well, maybe I’ll try again once I can REST in the HOUSE.

15 trillion YC well spent? Probably not =/

That was just posted around here somewhere in the last day or two. Not in this thread or FAQ though.

From MBR, you get earrings every 20 rounds up to and including 400, with rank 100+round. Every 300 total kills (can be accumulated over multiple runs), you get a level 1 armor unique. Every 1000, you get a level 1 weapon unique. Every 1500, you get a level 5 armor unique, and every 5000, you get a level 5 weapon unique. I also was getting around 40-50 levels per run on a hard at level 8500, with essentially no EXP bonuses, so those rewards are nice too.

New ? Epic Skill – When you claim a reward, .01% chance per rank to gain 1 Red Coin.

100 ranks, costs 1+ Red Coins per rank to buy, and add a quest to collect them.

Aurian suggested to make a video to show it, but I dont feel like figuring out how to do that just for this thing. If no one believes me, whatever, I know it happened /dealwithitsunglasses. I did take a picture of part of the spreadsheet I used to keep track of it though (1050 harvests is when it hits +50 for those who dont know):

Oh, and all of that harvesting on top of what I got from regular garden, and I’m still 120k GP away from S-ranking the Harvest Trees! quest. Soon…

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Reorx8's TFCG Deck List

They had it from the start, but drew it midway through? With superpowers only available to players?

LM’s get lots of advantages that players dont, and from what I’ve seen, random free cards is one of them. I could be wrong, but I never see free Dream Books/Infernos from decks that dont have them, and I do see all LM’s play free cards at some point.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Reorx8's TFCG Deck List

Its been my experience that the LM’s just get to cheat and play free cards now and again. I know I’ve seen them have an empty hand, so I think I’m all good for a turn or two, and then pull a purple Inferno and asplode me.

Can you add reorx8’s FCG thread? I know there’s already a bunch there, but I’m tired of going through Fexghadi’s thead to get there.

Also at the very top of this thread, its at least Version 8 by now. The Final Balancing? The Rebirthening? Tukkun shot his computer in Reno, just to watch it die? I dunno, just been a while since the Triangle Apocalypse.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Suggestions!

Tooltip Suggestions – these are basically all just things that I dont want to keep changing Tech Lights to check, or running off to forums/spreadsheets to figure out. All just info/accessibility, nothing game-changing.

AG Breeding – On the Results screen, instead of just saying you gain Seed #XX, how about adding a “You Combined Seed A + B To Get…” And/or when selecting the second seed to breed, preview the results on the tooltip (i.e. you select #1 as the first seed and mouse-over #26 as the second, it says “50% #51, 25% #13, 25% #14”)

AG Trees – Show Seed #. I know I mentioned this above, and crazy said probably not, but it just doesnt make sense. The game has gotta keep track of what tree it is somewhere, why not the tooltip? I may be the only person to plant a #22-#25 at the same time next to each other, but hell if I can tell them apart. Or add some stripes or something ;)

Garden Check Tech Light – Any way to work in the AA Gardener cooldown into it?

BA Map – Show limited entries on the zone tooltips. I also mentioned this above, but just to elaborate a bit. Corruption/MBR says how many entries left, SD shows Full EXP Entries, SA/DP/DM tells you how many Keys, SC/TH lets you know if youve killed any today. These next two kinda go with this as well

DP Entry Screen – Show keys for SA/DM as well, just to help out when chucking TBNGs.

TH – Add a “Today” line like SC has. This was an old note from when the Apocalypse quests were still up, but it would be nice to see at a glance when entering the zone.

IA’s – I know it goes against their invisible nature, but something showing which one you have out. Maybe just something under your guy that says #432 and when you mouse-over it gives you the info for CHAOS. Or a little icon or something. Maybe mouse-over your BA dude gives you the tooltip?

SD – Next to the map, little numbers for remaining rooms, red XX/20, purple Y/4, yellow ZZ/10. Maybe they stay as grey ??’s until you start opening chests.

BA Player Debuffs – Mouse-over to tell you what they do? Maybe prevent a newbie or two from executing themselves with Zombie.

MBR – Add a little “Round ####” label at the bottom. I know there’s a gigantic message when you start a round, but when that fades, its hard to know which one youre on. I just want to know, for example, if I have ~10 sec left, and I’m at round 301, I’ll just be lazy and coast to the end. If I’m at 295, I’ll try a little harder to get the next earring.

ToD – Can you show the lockout timer on the tower when you mouse over. Still show the thing about the guards when you click it, just to explain to people, but have the timer there so you dont need to keep clicking if youre waiting.

BA Item Crafting Menu – If there’s a tooltip for CFC’s, it doesn’t work, probably because its moving. The cursor changes rapidly when you mouse-over, but I dont even see a box pop up at all.

AA – I thought I saw this mentioned somewhere, but how about a little slide-menu for the various resources you can spend, similar to the one in BA for SCM/Unob/etc. Just for things that aren’t available at a glance like coins or refills. Off the top of my head, that would include: Pixels, CM, Keys/Boxes, Fertilizers, and Arcade Tokens. I’ll also mention the Gardener cooldown here again, if he could get added.

Fishing Treasure Boxes – Show the possible contents when you mouse-over the icon in your bucket.

Boost Generator – Stats somewhere for average boost. And maybe a breakdown for Today, This Session, Last ~10 Minutes. Some way to compare and see what things like the Auto Ant Sprayer or Perks are actually doing.

Also, visual aids!

Sprayer Active Indicator:

Slight re-arrangement of BA Menu:

A little cramped, but it fits more or less. Also to go with the idea written on here, maybe mouse-over your EXP bar shows the IA tooltip?

Okay, I think thats all I got. For now…MUAHAHAHAAHA
