Topic: Evilibrium / The Game's Balance Got Screwed By March 11 Update

What the developers WON’T tell new players from here on is that the game’s quest difficulty ramps up so much that it is absolutely necessary to resurrect multiple times in order to progress, or grind super hard to level up your party. This costs gems in increasing degrees.

The removal of unlimited dailies results in not only increased grinding for artifacts to evolve cards, but also a potential major delay in progressing the main quest since dailies were farmable for small amounts of gems.

With players less interested in staying logged in the game, there will be far less activity for cooperative gameplay, resulting in a less active, diminished community.

In addition, the game’s writing has much bigger problems than its grammar. The highly linear main quest is just poorly written, as if by a middle school student. The lack of alternate main quests makes the story mode less interesting for the most part. Just having more main quest storylines that also start from early stages could have made grinding much less grind-like.

The development staff needs to hire a professional writer, or at least a grad. student, and they need to think more about their business decisions. They are competing against other games that do better in addressing the needs of the player community.

I’ve been giving this game a chance to fix its problems, but this update is one that takes it in a very sad direction.

Topic: Evilibrium / Grinding :-(

5 to 7 EP cards within a few days without paying money is not a match for most cases where people have actual lives and aren’t repetitively grinding over and over again on the same levels for hours on end.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / SUPERHERO CRUSADERS (Suggestion)

With superhero movies going strong this year, how about Crusaders with a Superhero theme?

We could eventually build “Justice League” or “Avengers” style formations.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / DEATH CHALLENGES (Suggestion)

What if dying in certain ways could be used for achievements?

For example:


Experience a party wipe with only one Crusader left in reserve


Have a minimum of X number of Monster A and Y number of Monster B on screen when you lose on a stage


Lose X number of times with less than Y number of Monsters on the screen


Lose on specific stages in a specific order (Death Quest)

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Slow Descent Club - Journey to the 100

With the increase in jeweled drop chance for free play, I think it’s now definitely better to farm in free play than Slow Descent.

An important thing to consider is that Slow Descent won’t replenish your chests as much as normal farming, so you won’t get as many trinkets as a result of farming Slow Descent.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / CHEST OF THE DAY (SUGGESTION)

There could even be special events revolving around the Chest of the Day – like a special added card that does something special or is a piece of something bigger…

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / CHEST OF THE DAY (SUGGESTION)

I think that with all the event crusaders currently in the game, a third tab for Shop could be added for Special or Event Chests that rotate daily – A Chest of the Day.

Day 1 – Thanksgiving Chest

Day 2 – Ladies Chest – contains equips for any random female, including Event females

Day 3 – Summer Festival Chest

Day 4 – ETC

This could be randomized or a schedule could be made so that players can anticipate a date for buying Chest of the Day bundles.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / New DPS Crusaders Will NOT Hold Up Due To MATH Reasons

If you don’t merge the EP for new crusaders and the old crusaders they can swap with, then the only usefulness that a DPS Crusader has is unique special abilities (if any) for a very large if not the majority portion of players.

This is because the existing EP on current main DPS Crusaders will eventually be astronomically higher than new Crusaders – the cost to make a new Crusader catch up in DPS will increase more and more.

Codename entertainment will be able to earn more money from repeat donators if they do the merge because then there will be a stronger reason to buy chests on a new Crusader.

What’s the point in replacing Kaine with Monkey?

Monkeys gold skill goes to the row behind him instead of the row he is in. So if you can’t have kaine in your biggest row due to dps ? just use monkey.

Oh so it basically solves the problem with WW formation.

Yeah, it’s an interesting way to give more gold options while encouraging diversity of formation.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / FEEDBACK on New Crusaders and Swapping System

It’s an interesting way to create a balancing factor by making players choose who to keep in their bench, however there is an inherent problem in keeping the enchantment points of new crusaders separate from the old crusaders in the same slot.

This means that DPS-oriented crusaders will only be useful to new players and only support-oriented crusaders will be useful to all players.

A simple fix would be for ALL Crusaders in a Slot to pool their EP. This will make all new DPS-oriented Crusaders useful as potential new main DPS for future formations.

Let Pete the Carney and Jason Master of Shadows pool their Enchantment Points. Do the same for every individual Slot.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Carnival of Sorrows Inaugural Event!

You will be able to select the new campaigns when you RESET after getting the new update. Reset, not refresh – meaning get your Nate to level 150 and activate his skill.

You’ll need to earn tickets as a toll for entering the new campaigns so keep that in mind as well.

The new crusaders are earned by beating the first two new campaigns – for a limited time.

Sarcasm doesn’t carry well over the internet because there are people who really do make stupid rants about anything and everything.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Disney's gonna sue.

Again, names can’t be copyrighted, and as long as the game doesn’t use an actual image of Disney’s Ursula or extremely similar to it as a MAJOR part of their brand, there’s no legal basis for a law suit here. Disney doesn’t waste money on frivolous lawsuits. They are not TSR.

The game uses the name Ursula in reference as obvious parody, which can’t be confused with Disney’s trademark by the general public.

Parody is fair use under intellectual property law.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Disney's gonna sue.

The character Ursula in Disney is based off of Hans Christian Andersen’s character, which is long past the copyright lifespan.

Names can’t be copyrighted. Trademark dispute requires much stronger abuse than parody, which is considered fair use in intellectual property law.

Ain’t nobody getting sued for this game by Disney.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Suggestions

A Quality of Life update to make JASON a more viable Crusader!

For his Subtle Deflection, add the effect that he doesn’t count as being in the slot for other Crusaders’ effects, such as Hermit and Emo – makes him incompatible with Sarah but makes him more specialized towards certain types of formations.

This makes sense since his ability turns him “invisible”.

Topic: Zeus Age / How to solve the "Lost Heroes" Bug

That doesn’t solve the problem on all computers, and doesn’t negate the fact that the communication from developers and the oversight from marketing has been abysmal. This game doesn’t inspire confidence for its survival and future updates. Worse than R2 Games at this point.
