Topic: Crush Crush / The big ol' suggestion thread!

My most important suggestion … is to add a Picture Album

I’d like to see all the girl pictures from the first screen … including their poke reactions. Not just the ‘memories’.

Another suggestion would be to add a “Who said that line” Album … listing all the cute/lovely lines the girls mention once you’ve unlocked them/talked to them. I think it would add to the charm of it all.

Edit: Could the more expensive gifts and dates count for more towards the ‘achievements’ … the achievements are a bit ridiculously long to finish, otherwise.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Scrying Issues

scrying often fails … only the kong ad and the adcap ad goes through, most of the time … and very rarely an ad based on my country.
and then still … it often fails to do anything at all. and I have to try more than once.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Stuck on R26

I used a non-unique titan build at r26 … it wasn’t well thought out, it had flaws … and it still easily propelled me towards r27…
it shouldn’t be that hard to accomplish … and yes, I used vacuumancy and diplomacy. ftw!

Topic: Realm Grinder / R30+ Discussion

I can reincarnate to 31 … and could’ve probably been right there with you guys working towards R32…

but instead I’ve decided to just sit on r30 and wait for new expansion or whatever to come out.

It feels incredibly pointless to try and rush ahead when there’s always some new change/release that makes it either a ton easier to do, or makes it retroactively a pain in the ass that you went ahead to begin with (like with how artifacts were when they just came out)…

It has not once felt rewarding in this game to have rushed ahead. There has been numerous times where older players got the shaft. I’m feeling weary just for that reason alone. (e.g. 5 days of druid/faceless/titan for 305 researches, that older players don’t have their time logged for).

Topic: Realm Grinder / So how many snowballs do you guys have by now?

27135, none bought with rubies … and I actually went offline for 9 hours and 43 mins. Since I had hit the 25k mark, lol.
before that I tried not to miss any snowball. Now I just turn off my comp. again.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Ok, so I think we can all agree that the requirements for Christmas feats are pretty ridiculous.

This is not directed towards anyone specific. If you are so emotionally invested in this game that you are willing to argue with people on the internet over it, perhaps you should consider either retiring from it or investing in some rubies.

You’re basically arguing for others to stop arguing. Grats.
Also… I consider it feedback towards the game developers. If no one would argue, they wouldn’t get to hear any of the standpoints that the people, who are playing their game, have.

Even if it gets dragged on a bit too long and some are just arguing for arguing’s sake. Let them be! (including me!)

And actually stating you don’t want to offend anyone, means you know that what you’re saying can be considered to be offensive. It’s kind of a trope in itself.

Topic: Realm Grinder / So, what's your breaking point? Do you have one?

My breaking point will be when I get bored of it. And slowly log in less and less uptil the point I start to wonder why I even bother.
As with so many other games before I started to play this one.

At one point you’re struck with the repetitiveness of it all.

And regarding the christmas event. My main objection is against the gift login requirement. Which is impossible for anyone who actually goes on vacation for a period of time during the christmas event. The length of the event should’ve been able to help them, but instead they added a daily login requirement on an idle game, which is too strict as a quest requirement.
And I’ll assume all the event feats will add up in the % event bonus. And missing one will still hurt completionists.

The snowball event might be doable, but also there you’re “screwed” if you miss out on a few days.

Apparently, one is getting 25,000 snowballs, and the other is for 13 presents.

The last one is reasonable (well, it is if you get daily presents), but 25,000 snowballs is insane.

NO, “The last one ISN’T reasonable either”

having to log in 13 times out of 15 days alone is too much …
it’s a holiday season, you can’t expect people to be home and be able to login every day just to do an ingame event.

not to speak of the rest… but I already complained about this crap in the christmas event topic.

Topic: Realm Grinder / "No Recruiting" strategy

I’ve been skipping mercs since R19.

I do vanilla fairy runs (no dwarf)(fairy bloodline)… uptil the point you can buy enchanted fields (extra boost)
and then keep doing that till you can buy research.

- you can’t skimp out on the heritages. (you can use holy light/fc to speed that up)(excavations too)
- you can simulcast all the spells at one point, if you do it manually at first (and watch the times)

For people w/o any gifts or rubies bought, it should be possible at r24+.

And yes, it might be slow going at first, but you’ll get the hang of it the more often you do it. ;p

Edit: the initial vanilla runs I do are only 2 minutes at most. hence the no dwarves. I pretty much have reset already by then. I buy upgrades, cast spells and reset. I don’t take the time to wait for heritages etc. until I’m much higher up with gem tree.

Topic: Boss Must DIE!! / 1st run / Bored

I’ve been idling for days, literally…
just to get enough gold to get to the first ‘doom’ point.

and I’m actually bored out of my mind.

The game is not interesting at all during the 1st run. You can’t do much of anything.
You’ve quickly seen all the available options.

And if you pay attention you quickly notice that buying skills make things progressively more expensive, so you wind up skipping things. And learning that buying lich skills in particular is bad.

This is an issue that needs to be addressed … and as a ‘new’ player… I’m tired of leaving this game open on a tab, just to see if I’m getting anywhere.
I ‘might’ come back when it’s no longer this mindboggling boring.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Realm Grinder: Secrets of the Ancient [Full Patch Notes]

Well, with cursing being nerfed … undead has now turned completely useless.

Undead wasn’t even stronger than the other factions. It took a lot longer to grow. 2-3 days before you started earning gems again after abdicating (even with having cursing boosted by a lot through refraction), whereas the other factions were often viable again within a day.

You basically just nerfed it into oblivion. Which is sad, since it’s the only faction where the production bonus is boosted even if you go offline.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Full Hidden Trophy List

I’ve got the No Recruiting trophy.
You can do this one at about R24+ … (possibly earlier if you’ve got gifts + ruby power bought).

Just skip mercenaries alltogether til you get to 1 novg gems. Go straight to research basically.

Topic: Realm Grinder / W120 - Undead, Fairy or Demon?

fairy with goblin bloodline isn’t wrong … because if you use that, you can aim for Vivification (A120), the 6500 max mana requirement.
With vacuumancy (S30) and rampage (W135) it won’t take that long at all. (should get you there anywhere between 8 to 16 hours of playtime, depending on how far vacuumancy has to go/ how much gems you start the run with.)

Once you have vivification unlocked, you can buy it (make sure to keep 1 slot spare for it), that will give you an instant 120+ assistants…
which will easily push you towards unlocking betrayal (W120).

You should be able to unlock multiple researches at once, going this route.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Suggestions for next Update

I’d like a very small lvl up button for when you minimized your heroes.
Hell, being able to lvl them up by clicking on the hero itself would be useful too (while minimized).

And on a side note, can’t the minimize button be permanently available, instead of having to press z,shift or ctrl every time?
Perhaps add that in the options menu for those who want to toggle it.
