Thanks Econ professor! I didn’t realize that the only way a game could be profitable was for the maker of the game to gouge the consumers and prey upon those of us with poor impulse control!

Topic: Rise of Mythos / The Wheel and us Priests....

Just curious… the angel card “Judge Raziel” says “Cannot be debuffed”
Does this mean that the wheel does not affect this card at all? Or it is just another case of inept mis-translation by Gamefuse?

I want the sprites to strobe with iridescent colours that give smaller children seizures.
Too many small children playing this game.
Need to weed them out.
With seizures.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reporting/ban system

Let me say this first…
It is reasonable and expected that Gamefuse will not disclose HOW they find cheaters. Because they want it to be a mystery. For a very good reason. If the cheaters knew what method Gamefuse uses to find cheaters then they could avoid only those items that would show up on reports.
That being said… if it is true that Gamefuse only looks at how many battles are surrendered… then unfortunately I have contributed to having players unjustly put on the wall of shame. (When I see someone plop down a whale card while their avatar sits on a glowing horse I hit the surrender button)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Is this Game Still alive

The other issue is that when people leave… there is usually no “last huzzah!” or notification. They just quit. And they don’t say why.
I have been tempted quite a few times to just leave and not come back. Biggest reason for me is the cross-platform mergers. How is it a merger when I now have to compete against a player that I can’t communicate with, can’t invite to my guild, can’t see their stats/cards/gear/etc., can’t buy and sell with…. ??? The pvp system is broken as it is. Now even more mucked up by adding cross platform competition. And then there is World boss. Maybe make that server only and not include the botched cross server merge crap? Just a thought.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Pumpkin Witch Morgana

Wait.. WHAT!
The card that I bought JUST BECAUSE IT HAD REALLY CUTE ART AND IS A TOTALLY NON-PLAYABLE CARD now has this crappy Sailor Moon art on it. I hate Sailor Moon. Thanks for a pointless artwork change. You didn’t improve anything.
It would have been nice to let anyone with the old artwork KEEP it and anyone who got the new one would have the new artwork. But that would take effort I guess.

After speaking with Monster, the few bits of news I can give you are as follows:

1) 1.3hp buff will be implemented tomorrow/today (Wednesday) with regular maintenance.

2) New server merges – they are going with Plan C and will be implemented in 2 weeks after current season is over.

3) I asked about getting VIP restrictions removed from Masters and Kings packs and Monster said he already tried and the answer is no. :(

Thank you for letting us all know. I am rather annoyed about the VIP restrictions on booster packs. The restriction has always been unnecessary and short sighted. I guess it can’t be helped (not with the parent company showing obvious lack of attention and interest in the player base). I wish the former mod that mentioned their removal had just stayed silent.

:/ i was just wondering since you said you understand the struggles for vip0s….
sigh guess my assumption was right after all :(

If players want to tell their VIP status, that is their business, not mine. Thats all I was saying. And, no, I do not understand their struggles firsthand, but I am around vip0s in my guild every day and am willing to listen to the complaints of the other vip0s in the community.

My complaints are simple. We were promised that the VIP restrictions for new card packs would be lifted. Nothing ever happened with it. I have gold, and I have rubies, but I can’t participate in half the special events because I am VIP0.
The game developers did a very handy job at making sure that VIP0 would never threaten whales in the arena. With such things as… lucky daily draw being two or three star standard cards (usually two stars. I have gotten lucky once in the years I have played and drawn a four star card… but usually its just the same lame two and three star cards every day). The amount of free gold was neutered with the change in the daily quests (in order to get the large chest at weeks end you MUST spend 12 of the 15 free gold to buy a booster, and the crapiest booster at that).
And… absolutely no math disclosed by the developers. See.. that is what I liked about Tyrant. I could go to the wiki page and find out the percentage of each card. I could run simulators to see what strategies work. None of this random crap that plagues ROM. How many more years do I have to play this game to finally get lucky and get a Adonis??? And why are there players who have 3 or 4 Adonis cards already? If this is a strategy game, then make it a strategy game. Too much random roulette style crap goin on.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Community Discussion] Let's improve PvP

Bring back sealed deck tournaments. And turn off runes for tournaments as well.
Also.. try using different card packs for sealed deck tourneys. It would give the community an opportunity to play with cards from packs they may have never purchased before.
I used to play in two or three sealed tournaments every week, until the developers made it “pay to play” and introduced the lame League tournament. League was an interesting cough cough attempt, but too many flaws with it to entice me to spend gold to participate. And no real way to earn free tickets for it either.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Sarya

Effects are placed on a character at entry, such as Sarya’s effect, or the one that gives Heroic, Regen, etc.
After all modifiers are figured, only then do the modifiers from the card played will go into effect.
So….
Enemy plays a Sarya card. All my troops are now -5 max health. I play a Sarya card. She dies on entry before she can lower the health of any of the baddies.
Hope this answers your question.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / What attracts us to RoM?

I only play this game cause a good friend also plays. I would have given up long ago if they didn’t play. Lackluster support, poor implementation, pay-to-win and high card costs to name a few. I enjoyed the game a long time ago when there was ONE VIP zero in the top 20. I doubt there is a VIP zero in the top 200 now. Every new item release or card pack release is VIP only. The distance between free players and pay-to-win players grows further and further apart. PvP system has always been broken (I’m always paired with someone 100 or more points above or below my current ranking) And.. the removal of sealed deck tournaments.
Gamefuse- what ever happened to removing the VIP restrictions off card decks?
I’ll say that again- WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO REMOVING VIP RESTRICTIONS OFF CARD DECK PURCHASES!?!
I don’t really expect an answer on that. Every answer I see is “Hmmm… we will look into that…”
Which I assume means “Hmmm… we will look at it. But the decision makers don’t speak English, so chances are slim that anything will happen. Hopefully some new event or update to the game will distract you and you won’t ask the question again…”

I stopped listening right there. Keep your negative attitude and your personal attacks to yourself, please.

For VIP0 players, Rubies are mostly worthless. You can’t buy cards in AH with Rubies. You can’t use rubies in blacksmith attempts (to stop the armour from degrading when failing). Monster said a whle back that he was “working hard to remove VIP restrictions from card packs” and that has not happened yet… so VIP0 can use rubies to by standard packs and occasionally festival packs when they are on special.
Honestly… if you could use Rubies to buy cards in AH… I wouldn’t be arguing about this at all. But since rubies are worthless to me, why would I ever want to sell cards in AH? All I get is something worthless to me as a VIP0

Rubies stop the massive multiple account creaton! You could feed your main character with other accounts so easy that i think it would go out of control! Much easier to control (ban) few people who cheat, than control massive amount of people who exploit. I don’t even see how they could lose rubies.

It takes a long time and a lot of game play to get a new account to the point where you are earning free gold and have the AH building available in order to participate. The Ruby system is an unnecessary “extra safeguard” against the potential abuse of multiple accounts. The “free gold” in the system is earned by gameplay. And there is so little of it as a VIP0 that transfering every gold to another player would mean… 2 hours a day gameplay to transfer 15 gold?
I also like how people say “Getting rid of rubies would ruin the game!” Seems like the Chinese servers are doing JUST FINE without rubies. Its strange that the game devs thought that American servers would be more likely to cheat and abuse the system than the Chinese players…
I could argue on and on about why there is no valid argument for keeping the Ruby System. The biggest reason for getting rid of the Ruby system is that more VIP0-VIP5 players will continue to play the game if they can receive gold when selling cards in AH.
I don’t really care about the Whales. Whales gonna spend anyways, so who cares.

Agree on the minimum prices completely.

You mean… Like the card dupers? Or the hacker that screwed up everyone’s accounts? Or the people who continue to try and auto-lose to their alts in PvP to up their scores?
You mean.. like that kind of cheating?
Look… rubies, gold.. it doesn’t matter. Someone is trying to break the rules, cheat the system, get an unfair advantage. The ruby system doesn’t fix anything. It just makes VIP0 players drop out quicker because there is no way to participate in the AH with everyone else.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / nerf chosen one or we quit

IMO.. It should be that only ONE troop can be a “Chosen One” at a time. Because.. well.. its the freaking Chosen One! (and if they did it right.. Only one Chosen One on the board at any time, including friendly and enemy troops combined)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Monster Talk]Super Store FAQ

I remember that chat, long ago. I think it was that female Gamefuse moderator who said “We are very excited and we are going to keep the free players in mind when we do these new exciting events!”
The event sucks. The recharge events of late have all sucked. And where is that new Gamefuse employee, by the way? I think she’s went on a wild goose chase for that ruby she said was going to “be available to every player” and never found her way back.
The best way to drum up excitement is to showcase new cards in Equalizer tournaments (where people can see how the new cards work without forking over a thousand dollars to buy one) or show them off in a store event like the one coming up… (so people can see it and drool over it). Or… putting that specific card on display on a recharge.
Having a whale only event and the rewards for the event are legendary and godlike cards from version one seems pretty pointless.

If they add the card, they will say its OK because “Anyone can get this card… if a whale happens to sell it in AH of course.. and you can afford the 8k or more gold they are asking…”

It would be very generous of the game moderators to open this boss up to all players. If you are not VIP, then defeating the boss will still be very hard. And you won’t be able to do much with the reward, since most of us VIP zeros don’t have any godlike cards.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / why this game dying ?

I’m surprised ROM has limped along as it has. The exodus of whales (due to the hacking and lack of service support), the quickening power creep with over powered cards for sale. The new content in the game is exclusively “whale only” so VIP zero’s have less reason to keep plugging away.
The world boss is interesting, but again, only top whales get the real loot. Everyone else gets a free epic (shame its an epic you should already have, though)
