Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] New Server + Server Merges

The time has come for some of our Heroes of Gaia veterans to unify and ascend to new heights with the new expansion HoG: Ascension!


With the release of the expansion, we will be opening a brand new server: Hydra!

Meanwhile, the servers Atlantis and Pangea will be merging with the much smaller Rayflame servers Crius and Theia to form the soon-to-be legendary server “Aegis.” We are really excited to see all of our most experienced players together, so to celebrate we are going to be offering one week of 20% off EVERYTHING in Aegis’ shop.

Nemesis will remain unchanged, which will give us three total servers: Aegis, Nemesis, and Hydra… to give you all the very best experience HoG has to offer.


All server changes will be launched with the expansion on March 10th. We currently are anticipating about 8 hours of downtime to facilitate all of the merging and updating.


If you haven’t seen the full patch notes for the game yet, prepare to have your mind blown! Heroes of Gaia: Ascension is a huge step forward and we are really happy to finally be sharing it with all of you.


Thanks for all of your support, we love you all.

-Snail Games

What was the issue you were having in-game that you were waiting for a response from the GM? Perhaps I can help.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ministry of War] MoW Expansion!

We’ve been working very hard to get expansion out for all of you, and now that we are EXTREMELY close, I wanted to share some of the inside information.

We will be launching the new server, Rage, very shortly. The expansion will only be available on Rage for the time being, until we verify the expansion stability. We are doing this due to the fact that the expansion is quite large, and we do not want to risk overloading or crashing the current servers. Once we determine the expansion content is stable, we will launch the contents on all of the servers. We estimate the expansion to be live on Fury and Wrath on February 10th. And don’t worry heroes, the servers will not get reset with the update.

Hey guys!

Sorry about the mix-up in the messages. One of our interns sent it out and clearly did not proof read his work. We apologize for upsetting anyone and will make sure that it won’t happen again!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Snail a question for you

As of now, we have not been informed of any upcoming merger. If we hear anything at all regarding a server merge, it will be posted immediately!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Can we haz expansion plox?

Sorry about the wait guys, but our whole office is working overtime trying to get expansions ready for both MoW and HoG.

We’ve basically had to start from scratch a few times for HoG (we didn’t just encounter game-breaking bugs…they were game-shattering), but it looks like our team finally solved the problem.

We’ve had less problems with the MoW expansion so we expect to release that first, but plan to get the next HoG expansion out shortly thereafter. We want to thank everybody for their patience on this. HoG is a great game, and I can’t wait to see how much fun you are all going to have with the next expansion.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ministry of War] Help with merchants

Merchants gain experience from selling purchased items at the different trade centers. The greater the distance from the point of purchase and the higher the value of the item, the more experience the merchant will gain from the sales.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Not again facebook

Semi-serious answer, facebook is one of the best ways for us to communicate directly to our players. Almost everyone has an account on facebook so we don’t have to force someone to create a new account somewhere just to participate in contests and giveaways. We will see about running some kongregate only events soon.

Ok Snail, here is a list of things from easy to hard to develop that everyone has suggested:

0. Sales on your items again.
1. A mute button in global chat for the insensitive global trashmouths
2. More caps
3. Change color of people in guild alliance to something other than red.
4. Item trading between guild members
5. Guild chat channel between alliance members
6. Building for weekly tournaments
7. Usages for built buildings like stables.
8. New weapons and armor items.
9. T11 units

You can’t tell me that you couldn’t do at least ONE of those a month to keep people happy? Thank you.

Captain Picard says “MAKE IT SO.”

These are great suggestions, all I can do is relay this information to the development team and they will make the final call on whether to implement these ideas or not.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to restore deleted heroes or accounts. You can contact a GM and they maybe able to help you in other ways to get you where you need to be.

(i know you probably wont) but please take this thread seriously and make some changes to make the game more interesting, entertaining and fun for all

A lot of these suggestions are being looked at and considered. The team is working on hog, but it’s difficult to say what will and will not make it in future iterations. These suggestions are great, and we would implement them immediately if that was possible. I know it may seem like we aren’t listening, but we are working on HOG and hopefully we can get some new stuff out to you guys soon.

if you are working on it, Snail, with all due respect of making a great game, what about item that you promised us back in forever amount of months ago? You said you would make a lot of things for us, and you never did.

This is a good reason why we are reluctant to put out specific information on possible expansions. We want to keep you guys informed, but we don’t want to be quoted saying we’re going to do something when we can’t honor that promise. A lot of game companies don’t give out information on things they are currently working on specifically for this reason.

This doesn’t answer his question. He asked about the promised items, not future expansions. → avoiding to answer

Always same thing : “We will look into it”. But, for many months, NONE of them ever happened.
facepalm

Letio, We’ve said this before and we will keep saying it, we will make announcements and comments when we have an official answer. If there is something that a player was promised we will make every effort to resolve that problem, however most problems can be solved by GMs. We can’t comment on everything and we don’t know when exactly things may change, but we will post when we do have those answers.

A lot people play at work or in work-like environments, bg music would create more problems than it’s worth. Just throw on the soundtrack to your favorite movie and you’re good to go.
