I would like to speak with a GameFuse representative, be it Stormshade or anyone else at all from the company, please.

You are posting in the wrong place.
It’s been said several times that the Kong forums are for the players. If you have an issue with Gamefuse, then post on the Gamefuse forums on the Gamefuse website.
Posting here … well… everyone wants to discuss and chat and bicker and talk off topic.
I’m trying to be helpful here.
I’ve posted a few times on the Gamefuse forums on the Gamefuse website. I could tell a BIG difference in the amount of interaction there, vs the lack of interaction here on the Kong forums.
(I think this is mostly because… Stormshade only has so many hours he can spend reading forum post after forum post. And Gamefuse forums take precedent over Kong, because Kong is a secondary outlet for the game)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Severe service issue: Ticket closed without comment

This specific issue… the Guild Showdown being canceled or maintenance occurring on the same night has happened before. And Gamefuse, in the past, has given out the token “goody bag” of silver, crystal, sometimes cards for such mis-haps.
Stormshade already responded in the forums saying that Gamefuse was not going to do anything more than was already done.
I think partly why everyone got the same thing (and no gold refunds) is because Stormshade knows that the FIRST time that a player gets gold refunded, then his email inbox will overflow with hundreds of bogus requests for refunds. And maybe ONE out of a thousand of those requests will be legit, but for the most part, Stormshade will spend all his time reading whiny complaints about tiny game hiccups and demands for full gold refunds.
So… Stormshade is pretty smart. He said ONCE that there will be nothing more done about this issue.
You can keep making complaint threads. Bang your drum and curse Gamefuse. But you already got your answer. I understand that you don’t like it.
But the problem is that Stormshade is being fair. He isn’t refunding ANYONE’S gold. Everyone got a small token. That’s all they are going to do. And I thank Stormshade for sticking to his guns about this.
I’m sure there will be more Guild Showdowns that get canceled for whatever reason. And players will miss out on weekly prizes.
But we ALL lost out on the chance for weekly prizes. And we ALL spend golds in our guilds.
The next time the Guild Showdown is cancelled, Stormshade will do the same thing he did last time.
No gold refunds.
MAYBE a token gift bag.
And its fair. And you know its fair. And you were warned. Because this is the way its always been. And this is the way it will always be.

I think it is because the company has several games to maintain, so it needs to schedule them at a time that is convenient, and being a Chinese game, it is during their business hours.

Or… its probably because the people at Gamefuse have other full time jobs during the standard “off hours” of gaming.

Don’t worry! We are all gonna get a great compensation package!
Containing…
200 Crystal!
500 Silver!
and… An epic Squire!
No.. wait… make that a Common Squire! Since giving any card away that is more that three stars would totally unbalance the game.

Well, I don’t mind getting Epic Humans/Elves.

It’s just… what are those common cards doing in there outside of annoying players?

It is a way to get players to waste more time and more gold. You get 70 total crap cards, and 13 decent cards, and one Legendary.
And of course, the Legendary will always be the last card available to be picked.
I would have been much more excited about this event if it was “Beat the angels on a SPECIFIC LEVEL” of the tower, and get a SPECIFIC angel card as reward. And have levels 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 be angel hosts, and when you beat them, you get a specific angel card.
But instead of something like that.. which would allow players to gauge their success before even starting.. The dev’s made this CRAPPY roulette system that is RIGGED AND MISLEADING.
How about… Gamefuse give me a million gold. And to pay for it, they can draw two cards out of my wallet. If one of them is my credit card, then they get my money! But wait! I put my credit card so it gets drawn absolutely last… or is it even in there at all? Who knows! I guess Gamefuse should just keep spending millions more in gold to see if they can find my credit card and get my money!

Everyone is confirming this….
So why even bother with the appearance of randomness? And why not put it in the event description.
This means that you can ONLY get the card showcased in the event (You know.. the one that smirks at you on the events tab ingame) is to spend a LOT of gold resetting the tower multiple times during the event.
Meanwhile, the rest of us were working hard trying everything to get as many cards as we can, but since we don’t THROW MONEY AWAY we didn’t spend mountains of gold on this event, so we have zero chance of getting the ONE card that everyone is working for.
This would be like…. if you could ONLY get a Goblin Adonis if you were VIP8 or higher, but Gamefuse (and the devs) never let anyone know. So you keep trying…. keep fighting in Shimmering Cave… spend hours working for the one card you want. But you can’t get there cause it is rigged.

And if it was, does anyone know if it is true this round? I just got my epic cait and if leg is always last(which I do not expect to get), I might as well reset pile.

I talked to someone who said a couple people they talked to didn’t get leg Leneya last, but I honestly think they were full of it because it’s obvious the first one was supposed to be rigged and they fixed it in the second event. Maybe there was a very very very tiny chance of the leg Leneya not being last.

yeah just a rumor, ive already seen legend cait in battle

Did you ask how he got it thou? If you remember his name please do, because that actually doesn’t disprove the “theory”
I got the epic, so others can too, so auction+alc can produce a lucky leg.
And I reckon whales can reset N times and get it up right but…
In any case, please help check if you can.

You are forgetting that people had this card as rewards for 1v1 and 2v2 end of season tourneys. (I forget which group got it)
I still want to hear from Gamefuse… because if this event is rigged, then that brings up every other “random pick” in the game. Everything from daily draw to boss fight rewards to opening new packs of cards.

Seems like classic “bait and switch” to me. I mentioned this before, because it seemed odd that the “random picks” were not that random.
I would love for someone from Gamefuse to comment on this.

I had to look at your profile… zero friends on Kong, no favorite games, and you just made the acct. Seems like you are an alt for someone. Grow a pair and post using your real account if you have to say something.
And I’m just curious… is English your second language? I had to re-read your post a few times to decide whether you were trying to be sarcastic or you just couldn’t adequately explain your opinion.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Champion pack gave only Good and rares

Just put ONE epic in each deck. That will raise participation. If I know that even if I lose, at least I get an epic card… I’ll willingly pay 98 gold. Participation in league would jump, everyone would be playing it all the time. And Gamefuse would win because more players are spending gold (and buying more to play more league).

I’m curious how many players tried to play “for free”… got frustrated… got tired of losing all the time.. and splurged on some kreds. And then, after a month or two, realized they had spent WAAAY more than they ever intended. (Just so you know, this was me on a few games)

Click the word “Support” that is on your game screen. Fill out all the info there. You will get a “support ticket number”
Post the support ticket number here and explain that you only received ONE epic card when you should have received two.
The mods at Gamefuse can “escalate” the ticket for you if you post it here on the forums. They can’t generate the ticket for you though. Good luck getting this fixed.

It’s laziness. Gamefuse is a re-distributor of this game. They are not the developer. The licensing agreement they have with the owner of the game probably prohibits them from making any changes to the actual game play.
Which is smart… imagine that you wrote a song and licensed it to other bands for them to play. And one of the bands changed the lyrics so the song promoted hate speech.
I don’t think Gamefuse has much say or authority to make some of the changes players ask about.
Lately though, the biggest complaint is the total lack of communication. Which is silly… a few minutes easing players concerns would keep things running smoother.
I’m still not buying any gold though.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Hungry, Hungry Devolopers.

I agree with most of what you wrote.
However… I’d like to point out that I like value for the money I spend. And since this game is yet another “whoever pays the most wins the most” I am not going to spend a dime on the game. I know that I have impulse control issues. I don’t want to turn into a gambling addict over a stupid flash game.
If Gamefuse made gold cheep and easy to get, or there was a cap on the amount of gold someone could purchase in one week, then I’d be more than happy to invest a FEW dollars to the game.
Its ridiculous to expect players to pay hundreds (and some of you have paid over a thousand) on a temporary flash game.
I say “temporary” because if you read the user agreement, Gamefuse can shut it all down and take your money, giving you nothing in return. I have had this happen to me on two other games. Paid money, the devs decided to only support the Facebook version, so all the kreds I spent went… nowhere!
I hold Kongregate responsible for the unethical baiting the developers use to get players to become whales. Gamefuse preys on gamers with impulse control problems in an effort to squeeze as much money from them as they can.
The really sad part:
Gamefuse could make a sustainable revenue stream by creating more value for the kred spent, and evening the spending by NOT SELLING POWER. Or at least putting spending caps on the game. I’d be more than happy to spend five bucks a week on a game that I knew had an even playing field. I’m sure there are hundreds of other players that would hop on that too.
Imagine thousands of people playing Rise of Mythos and every one of them spending five bucks a week. And doing that year after year. This game would stay the number one hit on Kong for as long as it runs.
What you have now is a bunch of pissed off whales who are holding back their money of a few issues (some minor, some pretty major).
I keep playing the game cause I like hanging out with the friends I have here. If I was by myself though..I’d prolly quit.
There is nothing more frustrating to me than to have some noob beat me, not because he was a better player, and not because he was clever or even lucky, but because he spent WAY TOO MUCH on a flash game to compensate for his lack of skill.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Fuse question

Its the same chance of you getting a Goblin Adonis from fighting in Shimmering Cave. Sure… there are people that have that card. I saw someone get one once in the bossfight. Of course, he was a whale and always spends gold for extra picks. Take the hint… alchemy lab is slowest and hardest way to make any of the nice cards, spending gold is the easiest and fastest. The devs that made the game did it that way to tease you and tempt you to spend all your cash on their flash game.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / bug in forestall

First off…
This is not the place to put bug reports. There is a button on the top of the game screen. Click that and put in your report.
Second-
Gamefuse is a re-distributor of this game. They are not the creators. Chances are, a small bug like this will never get “fixed” unless the chinese company that made the game makes an update to fix it.
Third-
Gamefuse tends to only fix bugs that hurt their “bottom line.” Meaning… if it was a bug that allowed players to get free gold, or bypass spending gold, or duplicate cards, or do something in the game that should cost money without spending the money, then they would move heaven and earth to “fix” the exploit.
Post away on the forums if you want. But all you did was let everyone else know of a minor game exploit you can use against a specific tactic. Chances are, this will never get “fixed.”

The “open chest” screen is timed. I don’t know why. And it seems that if you don’t open all your chest and the timer goes off, you ONLY get what you opened. (Which seems kinda busted imo)
So if your connection is laggy, you can win 12 rounds, lag out during your picks, and only receive 2 worthless card paks.

During the event period, consume gold (except auction, reshuffle and seaport) to certain amount will get corresponding rewards…..
Does stabling your horse count towards the total? Just curious.
edit- Oh.. and is this actually going on right now? Because its not in the events. “Light it Up” is busted too. I don’t wanna waste all the gold just to find out that Gamefuse dropped the ball. Again. Getting to be a very bad habit.
