Topic: Castle Clash / Beware of this bug (trade merit items)

Bought a talent reroll card with trade merit and it does not work.

When I used the card to reroll a talent it used the card up and also deducted 300 gems.

It’s a trap, I’d be careful on using merits to buy items that uses the same mechanic (of bypassing gem cost).

Thanks for all the advice, I got a better idea on where to go now. Also a bonus that I pulled my 3rd lurker beast from pack just now.

my god thanks for the tip on lurker+ and all the other good stuff.

For some reason everytime I looked over the f2p tier list thread I don’t notice lurker behemoth!

Good eye =3

I’ve taken the advice for artifact hunting around 2 days ago and it seems to work.

I get around 5-6 pulls a day atm. I’ve been pretty lucky in the past 2 days and pulled 2 epics from artifacts hunting.

Edit: It’s getting harder as my BR floats upward though, I may well switch back to gold farming soon.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / A Newbie who could use help on deck direction

Another newb player looking for advice here, thanks in advance.

I’m sitting on a mishmash newbie deck and a lot of epics (no legs) in inventory, and I can’t decide which direction to put SP toward at this point.

Deck:
(3) Malika

(4) brood minion++
(4) Blitz guard+
(3) Ion stryker

(2) Tiamat
(5) Aegis
(5) Blackrock
(4) Equalizer
(6) Falcion

Inventory (Epics + useful rare mat):
*No SP investment in any inventory cards.
2x Windreaver
2x Vigil
1x Falcion
1x Hephatat
1x Bulldozer
1x Missile Silo
1x Xeno mothership
1x Genetic pits
2x lurker beast

5x terminator
8x indebted vet
various copies of other useable fusion mats.

I’m at 3.5k br, currently just saving up SP because I don’t know where to go from here.

On the one hand, I’m tempted to start on mono RT with Empress and start dropping SP on the pair of vigils, falcion, and maybe veterans. On the other I have a feeling I should wait for some legends before I pick a direction. I’ve also been waiting for another pair of blitz to make a blitz plate.

Any veterans with advice for deck building direction in the short and long term would be appreciated!

Topic: Tyrant: Faction Recruitment / [Level 22] Pulsing Death

Hi there, I’d like to join but my case is a bit unusual:

I’ve played Tyrant years back and have left it when raids were just newly implemented, at the time I was L43 which was very high (not the case now).

I’ve just returned yesterday to an almost unrecognized game and it’s looking good.

Suffice to say my old top tier decks are far pass obselete now, but for some reason I had 130 or so earth shards which I dumped into Apoc packs, that gave me a workable enough card pool to build a few Apoc only rough decks.

Now I’m looking for a new guild and yours look great, seem to have everything I’m looking for in a guild.

Due to my circumstances my arena rating and so on are wildly out of whack, aside from that though I believe I fit all requirements on your list. I’ve also just registered on the fansite.

Let me know if you have a space for me =)

you % on drop chance has to be wrong at 6% you would avg 3 boxes per 50 kills. if it was 6% and in a pods game were everyone has at least 150 kills each then ya all would have like (150 X 4 = 600 / 50 = 12 X 3 = 36) so no you dont get a 6% chance to get a box on trash mobs.

The drop chance bonus modifies the base drop rate, it is not the base drop rate itself.

Let’s make up a base drop rate to demonstrate what that means. Let’s say the chance of a box dropping from a trash mob is 0.1%. (1 out of 1000 monster kill for a box drop on average)

A drop chance bonus of 6% would mean you final drop rate is: 0.1% * 1.06 = 0.106% (1 out of 943 monster kill for a box drop on average)

Topic: SAS: Zombie Assault 4 / FAQ on High Roller (HR)

It seems there are a lot of confusion regarding HR (short for High roller) with a lot of disinformation out there, so I’ll clear up some of the most common questions regarding it.

Here is the screen where you buy HR for a game:
http://i.imgur.com/O5LrDYa.png

Q. What does it do?
A. It increases all boxes you find by 1 lvl. Ex: A steel box becomes a titanium. It also increase box drop chance by 3%. If other teammates have it you will get 1% drop chance per HR teammate. The +1 box level is available ONLY IF you are using HR yourself however.

Q. How good is it? Is HR worth it?
A. The drop chance bonus is negligible. How often do you get box from killing trash mobs? Add 3% chance on top (6% if full HR team), you might as well ignore this. the meat of HR is +1 box lvl. Whether cash is better spent on buying titanium box direct or getting a +1 box lvl in a game is up to your own judgement.

Q. When should I do HR runs?
A. L18-29 is the sweet spot, a lot of useful gear unlocks at around ~L20, and HR run cost 25k before you hit L30. At around L25 you can almost break even on pod runs and use HR most of the time. Once you hit L30 HR cost 125k, so you probably won’t be using it often until somewhere pass L40+.

Q. OMG I got a single titanium box using HR, HR SUCKS!
A. You know all those other games where you find only a single steel box from the boss? Well HR added +1 lvl on top for you and gave you a titanium, That’s… what HR does. On the other hand, 3-4 boxes games happen fairly often, and the rare 5-7 boxes game while you are on HR is just so very sweet. If you’re just intellectually lacking and unable to understand the concept of probabilities, then I can’t help you as that is outside the purview of this FAQ.

Q. Someone found a steel box while using HR? How is this possible?
A. It’s not normally possible. but you could do it intentionally, here’s how:

1. Start the game with no HR.

2. Find a steel box.

3. Buy HR in game immediately, here: http://i.imgur.com/zlM9oTB.png

4. Voila! You just found a steel box while on HR.

Also, I’m not certain if loot slots are all rolled when the stage is loaded. If so, if you start the the stage with no HR and buy HR inside the game, then you can find steel box on loot spots (secret rooms, guaranteed spots …etc). As the dev said in another post, the check for box lvl is WHEN a box is generated, add +1 to its lvl if you have HR, since you do not have HR when the box was generated, obviously it doesn’t get +1 lvl.

And no, hundreds of HR pods game later I still haven’t meet anyone who found a steel box yet without buying HR ingame specifically.

For reference, pics of when I replicated the HR steel box find using the method stated above:

Topic: SAS: Zombie Assault 4 / nkspool is a liar

Just in case anyone is taking this serious and not in the know. Again a friendly reminder: Please do not feed the retards who blame others for their stupidity.

Here is how to get steel box while using HR:

1. Start the game with no HR.

2. Find a steel box.

3. Buy HR in game immediately.

4. Take a screenie and call out NK as big phat liars, lol.

Also, I’m not certain if loot slots are all rolled when the stage is loaded. If so, if you start the the stage with no HR and buy HR inside the game, then you can find steel box on loot spots (secret rooms, guaranteed spots …etc). As NK said, the check is WHEN a box is generated, add +1 to its lvl if you have HR, since you do not have HR when the box was generated, obviously it doesn’t get +1 lvl.

And no, hundreds of HR pods game later I still haven’t meet anyone who found a steel box yet without buying HR ingame specifically, the search goes on!

Topic: SAS: Zombie Assault 4 / not so, High Roller

If you got a steel box, then HR is off. You cannot get steel box with HR on. Either you don’t actually know how to turn HR on, thought you turned it on while it’s off, ran into a bug specific to you, or most likely lying. Given the tone and kiddy rage, I’ll go with lying exaggeration for emphasis being most likely.

Of all the numerous HR pod games I played, not once did I or anyone in the team found a steel box. We certainly found plenty of titaniums though, or tits as some prefer.

HR description really is as clear as it could be, Increasing box level +1 and increased drop chance.

You can mostly ignore the drop chance, since the base drop chance is extremely low (how often do you find box from killing non-boss mobs?) you can mostly ignore this effect. I’m uncertain if the drop chance help guaranteed loot spots to roll boxes (secret rooms, spots …etc where there’s a guaranteed random loot) but I would assume no for now.

HR is really for +1 box level, and doesn’t materially affect much else. I never thought it is a difficult concept to understand, but from the chat complains and this thread I guess you can’t ever set too low an expectation.

Whatever you find with HR on, -1 level from all the boxes and that is what you would have found without HR on (maybe an extra box if you’re lucky). It really is that simple.

And remember, lying fueled by kiddy rage due to isolated cases of unfavorable probabilities makes you look like a derping idiot.

Amp is talking about the daily reward 2x SAS credit pack

Each SAS credit pack gives you 250$ x Lvl per wiki.

If you’re say Lvl 10, you should get 5k total, a pittance which you may have missed.

Allow loading of resource onto your ships from planet stores, instead of only allowing commercial dock to transport resource.

There’s no reason why my empty frigates can’t participate in helping planet resource transport.

If balance is a concern, enable a resource loading time.

Topic: EMP Game / Kill or Nerf the Engineering Ships

With just 2 systems, the amount of micro I put in to managing the engi fleet is slowly driving me insane.

Yet I can’t compete if I don’t use them. I imagine the process is similar for many and this onerous micromanagement is a major factor in driving people to quit.

And that’s with just 2 systems.

To have more interested players stay with the game into the mid-late game, the game really needs a less micro intensive design overall.

Topic: EMP Game / Your Ideas and proposals

Micro for Engineers get pretty bad later on and it would be wonderful if engineers can mine a system as a whole, and so you don’t have to assign each fleet to each planet.

Originally posted by bladewarior:

its how you read it but in all servers 99 out of 100 times for mmo means cross server

“Besides, in all servers, the top players with the most scores …etc "

99 out of 100 seems quite an exaggeration. Cross-server is very specific condition when it comes to MMO ladder reward, and MMO develops always make sure that if a given reward is cross-server, the specific term cross-server will be used, or other terms that make it very clear that it is cross-server. I’m certain you would know this.

The way it is phrased here “in all servers, the top players with the most score…” would tend to mean each server in the given case, to say that this is interpreted 99 out of 100 times cross-server seems… highly unusual if I may understate matters.

There is also the fact that the poster is not a native English speaker, which does muddy the matter both ways I suppose.

Well, either way those are all semantics and pointless at this time as I’m pretty sure of the script they’re going with.

the scoreboard button may say cross-server on it, but that’s only the score display. A reward of 10 special units would naturally be individual to each server.

To provide our loyal players a more active game space and share the server resources at their best, also as the two servers hold approximately similar starting time, we will conduct a SERVER MERGE between KGS-1 & KGS-2 at 11:00PM Dec. 29th,2013 (PST). The merge will take about 3 hours, and we will announce here as soon as the server is back on. Please pay attention to the server shut down time and save your game process in advance to avoid unnecessary loss. Thank you very much for your kind understanding.

Regards
General War Team

Hi gameboxcy,

I noticed the server merge happening soon and I have a question.

For the top 10 score airship reward, will the top 10 of both server get them? Or only the top 10 score in the merged server?

If the plan is only to have the top 10 in the merged server getting anything, then I think it’s quite underhanded and deceitful to host the top 10 score event only to have planned for merging the server at the end and screwing 10 people over, and that’s alienating the 11th-20th players who contributed most money to your game during the event, which I find to be an extremely bad gesture on your part and sents quite a message to the player-base. If this is indeed what you have planned and is going to happen, I find your message “To provide our loyal players a more…” highly ironic.

Also, while I’m not one of those people, I kinda feel sorry for whoever played on S1 before moving to S2 for a new start, especially those who spend gold on both, how will their base on both server be merged as both are linked to a single kongregate account? Will one base override the other? Which server overrides the other? What about the gold/unit/resources in both base?
