Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Please help - game fails to load

I have a nice computer and nothing else has a problem. Thanks, but that’s not it.

Still not resolved. If anyone knows what’s going on, feel free to let me know.

Er, actually the rectangle is brown, not black. Just wanted to make that correction.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / Please help - game fails to load

Sorry to post this blatant cry for help here, but I don’t know what else to do. I’ve played Mardek I and II, so I started Mardek III from the Mardek II save, and got as far as finishing the water elemental cave. But suddenly, when I come to the Mardek III webpage and try to play the game, it’s not loading - there’s just the black rectangle, and the dots in the “chat” pane keep circling. Every other Kongregate game seems to work fine.

Topic: Elements / Dissipation Field card upgrade

Fair enough, but I have several quantum pillars in my deck, and I still think that, while I’m sure a workable strategy for the current version of Dissipation Field exists, in general the upgrade is actually a downgrade. And its description is vague in either case.

Topic: Elements / Dissipation Field card upgrade

First of all, let me say that this is a great game, and I keep coming back. I only have a couple minor complaints I wanted to share about my first card upgrade.

I was excited about upgrading a card from my deck (ether/chaos) for the first time, and I picked Dissipation Shield, one of my favorites. However, unlike the wording on the original card, the wording on Dissipation Field is vague. The original card’s description says:

“Shield: use 1 [chaos quantum] to absorb 3 damages [sic] from your physical damage sources.”

This means that each incoming hit (other than poison, which isn’t really a hit) gets integer-divided by 3, added to 1, and then applied to your chaos pool rather than your hitpoints. When upgrading, I read the description of Dissipation Field, the new version —

“Shield: use your quanta to absorb damage from physical damage sources.”

— to mean that each hit is blocked and subtracts one quantum, because that would be an improvement. The precedent I had in mind was the functioning of the Bone Wall shield. But I was worried by the vagueness.

It turns out that the new version subtracts a random quantum for every point of damage, instead of every 3 points. It actually uses up to 3 times more quanta. This is an improvement? It sucked up so many quanta that I had trouble with scarcity late in the game, something almost unheard of with the original card.

I recommend that the new version simply use one chaos quantum to absorb 4 damage instead of 3. Either that, or change the Dissipation Field description to “Shield: use one random quantum to absorb each point of physical damage.”
