Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Rebirthing = 25 Free Gold, let's talk about best Rebirth elements and what to do with that gold.

25 gold isn’t much, but it’s something.

So what do you guys recommend we do with that gold?

More Bank space? Oranges? Presents? Save it?

What’s the best thing to do with that gold on the first rebirth?


The second issue with Rebirthing is, which Element do we pick?

We get a whole tree of elemental skills, but which is best, and what are the benefits of each element?

Question: Are there any enemies in the game that tend towards one element or the other?

Question: We can only get the elemental skills up 10 times, so that means we can either spread out the elemental power we get (1 or 3 in each element) or we can pour it all into 1 element. Or maybe 2 opposing elements, so we can take advantage of plays who go 1 element only?

Which elemental build is better?

Extra Question: Each elemental skill tree we open up, does each skill require its own skill points?

Someone said that we can’t use two of the same skills (of differing elements) at the same time? Or that they share the same cool down? Is that true?

1 more question: Can someone explain of the Element Def Bonus and Element Defense stats are given on rebirth? If I chose Fire, I guess I get +10 Fire Attack. But do I also get Fire Defense? What about Ice defense? Do I get that too?


Looking forward to tips from more experienced players on those issues.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Suggestion: Auction Market system

Selling items in this game is a bit tedious.

Here’s my idea for an auction system.

Anyone can put any item they own (or wear) for auction, FOR FREE.

Any item on auction can be given a SUGGESTED price. But that’s just to start the auction. There is no “Buy it now!”. It’s pure auction.

In the auction system everyone who wants the item can put a bid on the item.

These bids are public! (but people don’t know who the bidder is, but the bids are sorted by “value” so the top value bids are at the top. This is important so other people know what to bid to outbid the other guy!)

The bids can be any item or coin amount or gold. (your account must have at least 3 gold, to bid gold, so that way people cant abuse newbie accounts)

The trick to this auction system is any bid is TEMPORARILY NON REFUNDABLE
(these items stay in your bank or backpack, but cannot be removed). Until the item is sold (or 1.5 days pass from time of the bid. After 1.5 days you can retract your bid).

Then the seller picks the winner at any time. (it can be any of the bids, or none. The seller can also dismiss bids he doesn’t like, and that bidder is made aware of this)

Items that are for auction stay in your backpack/equipped or bank, and do not get moved to an auction area.

Auction items that are 1.5 weeks old are removed from the list.

Topic: General Gaming / The Obliterate Everything 3 topic, online VS multiplayer space shooter **game updated**

My Biohazard [self destruct + shield + armor] vs far level 64 flank Cloud.

I set it up so my only offense was the Biohaz (totally OP, except VS shielded stuff) and the Clouds (almost pure shield beings) and filling my base with Repair Turrets.

The battle goes back and forth each time getting deadlier and deadlier. (it builds up)

Anyway, I think my base looked pretty cool with all the repair turrets healing all the self inflicted Biohaz acid and the clouds that got over the base. :D Too bad I didnt gif it.



Here’s another day, taking my Biohazzards out for walkies!

All my lovely boys!

Oh! We meet a friendly green! Hi Mr Green!

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Trade, buy, and sell items and good here!

I figure this might help get items you might be looking for.

1) List your level (or range), or the level range of the items you want.
Or list the level of the item you are selling.

2) List a suggested price for that item. (or it can remain private between you and other trader)

3) PLEASE mention your IN GAME NAME so people can more likely get back to you.

4) Optional: Mention times you play the game (don’t forget time zone!) so it’s more likely to find you.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Issues with resetting orange items

I’m not sure why orange items don’t just match your level? Why have orange items level up?

Why not just have a simple algorithm that makes the orange item match your level?

Let’s pick one of the stats in the item, Attack.

Let’s say you get an Orange with nice attack for a level 70 orange. Say, 90% of it’s theoretical max.

So why not make the math simple and do (BaseAttack) + (AttackPerLevel * .9 * level) = final stat.

That way the item would always be 90% attack, no matter the level. And level 70 one time, would be the same as any other BLUE level 70.

Would that make things too simple?

Or how about this, whenever an Orange item levels up, it regenerates as a BLUE STATS, that way you don’t have to do the math to get it working right? It would just generate the item again.

Anyway, as the game is right now, it looks like Oranges that are generated at a high level, are way better than oranges gotten at a low level?

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Duel Bug

Yup, just to clarify, you opponent needs to show as online when you click his name, and it needs to not show that he declined your duel.

But also it seems sometimes that the game pretends its a live duel, when it’s really not.

In that case, you gotta check the Chat box in the duel and it will show the pings between you two.

That’s the only way a Duel counts as a win/loss or draw on your record.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Can someone explain how Attack and Defense, and Fire Attack and Fire Defense work?

I think the way the basic system works is this….

You have a total attack power, let’s say 100 to 110. (your sword is 20-30)

If the target has 90 Defense, then you can (assuming no criticals or pierce) do 10 to 20 damage to the target? (110 – 90)

Right?

Okay, so what about “Fire Attack”?

Does that get added in top? Is “Fire Attack” almost as good as normal Attack?

And then what about Fire Defense afterwards?

That’s what I’m mostly interested in. But I’d also like some explanation of Pierce and Criticals while we’re at it.

Can someone explain the importance of 2 things for me?

1) Food, the Market, and who and why we should be selling to who or not to who?

2) Should we be invading castles internally and stealing their flags via their towns? Or doing quests in enemy towns?

What seems to happen if your quests get stuck because the game can’t add 1 more quest to your list.

This causes the game to get stuck (in my case) in the Dojo when having them teach you about stances and skills.

[and no, there is no 1 step way to drop a quest once you are inside the tutorial]

Topic: Kongregate / March '15 Suggestion Thread

Originally posted by PumpkinBrigade:




From FateIsEscaped “The friends at the top of the user list should be sortable. But as a DEFAULT, I’d like to see my newest to the room friends first!…”


We replied to a similar suggestion in the November suggestion thread -


“Unfortunately, while we understand that you would like to see you friends above moderators and admin, we want to make sure that mods and admin are easily visible and accessible to all users. "


However, this does not mean we cannot consider additional chat user filters/view in the future.




Actually, I am very on board with keeping moderators and admins at the top of the list and didn’t suggest getting rid of the mods/admins at the top of the list. (but condensing partially, yes) However, that’s not the main point of my chat suggestion there. A big part of my suggestion is an alteration to how the entire chat user list is presented.



Chat room suggestions:

1) Remove my name from the user list in a chat room.
Do I really need to know that I am in the chat room? Waste of space. Remove my name from the top of the user list. Totally redundant.


,

,


2) Condense moderators in chat rooms down to 1 spot on the list, with a number, that swaps the names out.
For example, let’s say there are 3 chat moderators in a room.
What should happen is that the top spot in the user list should show 1 randomly changing moderator, with a number next to it (to indicate how many mods there are)
Why is this a good idea?
Well, I support the idea that moderators need to be seen.
But I also don’t think the entire list of mods present in a room is a necessity, and, it’s a waste of space. That space at the top of list could go to showing my chat room friends.

So a compromise.

The top spot is for all mods in the room. With a number to show how many there are.

Also, if you scroll down the list, you should be able to see all the mods in the list as they should appear.

,

,

3) The friends at the top of the user list should be sortable. But as a DEFAULT, I’d like to see my newest to the room friends first!

Meaning, if a friend on mine JUST ENTERED the room, I wanna know!

I want to see his name pop up at the top, so I can say HI!

So, please sort the user list by newest people in the room first, thanks.

.

.

4) Multiple columns in the chat room user list.
There are so many people in a chat room, and yet, there is so much space at the top of the user list, on the right.
So I suggest that you make the user list in the chat room into two columns.

.

.

So. Let’s put all those suggestions together, and see what it would look like.



h3. Column 1 / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / Column 2
(3) three second swapping mod name, MostNewlyArrivedFriend1
MostNewlyArrivedFriend2, MostNewlyArrivedFriend3
MostNewlyArrivedFriend4, MostNewlyArrivedFriend5
MostNewlyArrivedFriend6, MostNewlyArrivedFriend7
MostNewlyArrivedFriend8, MostNewlyArrivedFriend9
MostNewlyArrivedFriend10, MostNewlyArrivedFriend11
NewlyArrivedNonFriend1, NewlyArrivedNonFriend2,
NewlyArrivedNonFriend3, NewlyArrivedNonFriend4,
NewlyArrivedNonFriend5, NewlyArrivedNonFriend6,


.

.

As you can see. You have the number of mods, and a randomly changing mod name (every 5 seconds) so that’s covered, and you can see there are 11 of my friends easily seeable, right away! And they are sorted by the ones that most recently entered the chat room, so I never miss a friend.



.

.

And here are a couple more chat room suggestions.

5) Please reduce the CPU usage of the flash chat room.
IMO, the flash chat room is significantly affecting on flash game performance.

Chat… on a game site… affects flash game performance? The two are at odds.

Please look into optimizing the chat room’s coding.


.

.

6) Please move the chat room’s name, as it’s a waste of space.
At the top of the chat box it lists the room name.
Why not move that to the second line where it says “Room”?
Less wasted space, more room for chat, and user list.


The main idea of my suggestion is to make the space more usable in the chat room. More efficient usage of the chat room space.

Most rooms I go to don’t even have mods/admins in them, my main suggestion is to have a more useful user list.

The most important point of my suggestion is to reorganize how are friends are sorted. I’d prefer having my friends list sorted by most recently logged in, rather than alphabetical.

Maybe a slightly better suggestion would be, when you FIRST enter a chat room, the friend list / non friend list is alphabetical, but any new friends that enter the list appear at the top. (under the mods/admins)

When you first enter the room, it should look like this:
Mod A (m)
Mod B (m)
Abe (f)
Beth (f)
Cain (f)
Dan (f)
Alex
Bob
Cindy
Dale

Alphabetical.


But after a bit of time of people logging in and out, it can look like this:

Mod A (m)
Mod B (m)
NewDude (f)
Abe (f)
Beth (f)
Dan (f)
NewRandom
Bob
Alex
Cindy
Dale

[starts alphabetical, but new people get added to the tops of the lists]

You can see in that list that new people entered (newdude and newrandom), or reentered (bob) and their names are now at the top of each respective list.

This is to help see who’s new to the room.

That’s a big main point of the suggestion.

Another big point to the suggestion is to make the list of names in the chat room twice as packed.

If we use the above example, you can easily double pack the chat list like this:

Mod A (m), Mod B (m)
NewDude (f), Abe (f)
Beth (f), Dan (f)
NewRandom, Bob
Alex, Cindy
Dale

That would squeeze in twice as many people in the chat room list immediately available. Just use a comma.

In the end we kept her as is and jmtb02 made up a story about her losing two legs from being swept down the water spout.

Hello, I am back and have read through your emails and accept that despite missing a leg, that drawing of a spider may indeed be the one I sent you.
