Topic: AdVenture Capitalist (Moon - Closed Beta) / PLEASE READ

Got a really fast reply to my e-mail I sent yesterday and it wasn’t a form letter! LOL! Here you guys go

Hi there,

Thanks for your email! We really appreciate all of the feedback we get from the Beta environment, as it helps us make the game that much better. There’s definitely some fixes that need to be made, and we won’t be updating the beta versions. A lot of those get logged, and will be taken care of for the final version we release fully.

The whole point of the Beta is to gather as much feedback as we can from players, so we appreciate you taking the time to play and share your thoughts.

Take care, and best of luck with your investments.

Ryan

NO, the whole point of a beta on KONGREGATE is to develop, and change the game based on feedback, trial and error.

This is just silly. 1 out of 5 for me on your games, hope everyone does the same. This is not what kong beta is for.

Hmm, free armory still didn’t reset for me, so it’s NON DST. Could you, pls, double check?

I had free both yesterday and today, so i can not confirm. anyone else help?

Topic: The King of Towers / daylight savings time change bugs

So, here I am putting a summary of things gone wrong since daylights savings time.

World boss – you can enter at the new DST, but boss is already dead. I would guess from the fight before. Sync your boss screen and your enter screen please.
Fighting pits – follows new DST
Port – follows NON DST
Boss Clash – follows NON DST
Blitz acres – follows new DST
Jewel crafter – follows NON DST
Daily reward – follows new DST
Tavern – follows NON DST
Kingdon tax – follows NON DST
Ice Goddess – free pray follows NON DST. Pay follows new DST. (WTF)
Prison – follows NON DST
Anniversary treasure – follows bew DST. but you can do fight pits for them. just not boss clash and/or treasure hunters
Fairy powers- follow DST
Free armory cooldown – NON DST

Those are the few i just noticed. This is ridiculous.

Edit

Daily tasks is NON DST (thanks exodus77!)
Blackmarket is DST (thanks Pinwheeler!)

Edit again.

ALL THE THINGS THAT SAY NON DST, don’t upate AT all! now someone needs to give me a full days play back.

UPDATE now an hour later. NON DST, means it doesnt work at ALL!

day just changed over. even with refresh, you get no long rewards “5 gem a day”, your tavern is still at zero picks, and you have no jewel free explore.

Given the bug with these and the world boss, I would guess you have a large timer problem.

aka, for crying out loud, sync up all your clocks with, or without Daylight savings time. I am on the verge of quitting for this.

Topic: The King of Towers / 3 Hydras at BA - possible w/o Durin ?

you need vord to tank the 1st one, with clusters of elementals hold the other 2.

Level 50 mages for sure.

Without Durin aura on top of that, will take you a long long time.

26 days and counting… this free beta tester is getting annoyed.

they are too busy putting it out on mobile to care about their games here on kong. You should see some of the rage in the forums on the non beta version.

The way we programmed the event, this should literally be impossible! Unless you never close your browser. If you’ve kept it open, it’ll keep the event going until you reload.

Could you email Ryan any details you have regarding this? We’ll dig in with whatever info you can provide. (Browser, if you’ve cleared your cache, etc.)

Appreciate any info you’ve got. We WILL end Christmas!

Cheers!

i still have candycanes.

same problem.

try that again please

Still same problem. Game takes so long to load that I get a warning that shockwave flash stopped working, then when it finally loads after 60 seconds or so, it ends up with this problem. Chat does work though after.

Sorry for that, but you must understand that before update game balance was too easy to play. Many players reach 1000+ levels with only problem is seconds before battles.

For now it is much more balanced game in general, but those players has too overpowered amount of scrap and skills, thats why i suggests hard reset the game.

I know that is hard to do, like wasting your time and like that, but is is a game and it was published like 3 days ago, not so much to loose

The problem i have now is the game will not even load.

… And what if we stopped insulting and started waiting for the lastest patch, which will be running soon?
I mean, I’ve seen the most formidable collection of reactions all over the forums to claim how nasty were the devs, how horrible was their rating update, how ruined the game was… Stop. They added a ton of content, then they had a sleepless night to fix a good lot of what you vomited on them, they released the patch in 24 hours, and STILL complaining? Okay, this game is far from perfect, and I admit it, but won’t you just stop complaining? If I remember correctly, 1 week ago, you were almost trying to shoot HHG with sniper rifles for not being fast enough. Therefore, they had to rush it a bit, and now that this upgrade is out, you’re complaining even more? Is that supposed to be logical? I’m tired of peoples that just can’t accept changes. We’re living today!


Well, I was really angry when typing, and will probably be insulted, but I don’t regret it.

Oh, and Shark: I’m level 44. Does that makes me more legit than a lv 1?

+1

so you dont find that the same day the update is released, several kong accounts are all created with the name “capitalist” as part of the user name, that start leaving postitive forum posts and comments on the game? I sure find that fishy.

It’s a step in the right direction, you’ve listened to some of the user complaints. So I went ahead and tried resetting the game.

Nope. Still not playing. Very laggy, unresponsive button presses (shows the button being pressed, doesn’t ACTUALLY do anything), the scrolling via scroll wheel is a great touch but goes so fast as to skip pages of achievements. And the UI is still the new, cluttered, jumbled, eye-sore.

Look, I get that you guys had someone working really hard on the new UI. But for this game, I still think it was the wrong movie. The old UI, simple, efficient, is WHY some of us chose to play this idle game over the many, many other options available. We always had the buy options and money data on screen. When we went to look at the achievements, buy options were all still there. When we were upgrading, buy options were all still there. And THAT is important because we could buy things WHILE upgrading.

This new update kills all of that. And the laggy, unresponsive UI kills the speed of the game.

You’re working to fix things, and working quickly, I appreciate it. But as long as this UI is the one for the game, I’m still not playing. This isn’t a knee-jerk “one look and I’m gone” reaction. I have been TRYING to use it. But the functionality that I want is gone. The speed I am used to is gone. The interface is non-responsive. This is no longer a game I want to play.

Hey come on, give them some credit. They’ve been working on this game practically around the clock ever since the new update came out, trying to fix all of our picky complaints about how we “don’t like the freaking colors”. They’re trying their best, alright?

oh look another level 1 account coming out to suck up to the makers of this game. Suspicious much? hmm.

They obviously did not give a flying flake about non mobile users with this update. The inability to scroll at all without pain tells me they just tested it on mobile.

Mobile game makers have ruined many kong games. This is another one.
