Topic: The King of Towers / Help

yeah, i heard about it but it was too late ;) i’ve already bought the bombardier.

it’s actually very strong too, damage is very heavy, only problem is the slow fire rate, but i think the damage output can balance this. Like 6200-9200 at lvl21 and the AOE is great and do indirect damage to flying enemy too.

i’m leveling it and will unlock the dragooner later.

Topic: The King of Towers / An event that can't be won by diamonds

Not to mention who is the one who “lose” something, playing at such price after few month…
Is there any pleasure in wining after paying such incredible amount of $.

i still have some great fun playing the “free way”, trying to catch the 60th spot for the 3x Dark Soul reward.

This game would be really very interesting without the PtWin content, but this wil never happen because of the ones actually opening their pockets so easily.
I’m not saying the game don’t deserve “revenue” because evary work need a paiement. Just that the challenge would be greater.
There are other way to make players pay small fee, without any “consequences” to the ranking or the chance of winning.
We have great example of good game in Kongregate that have premium content with only cosmetic and practical advantage.

i prefer to pay a few $ to help server maintenance when i like a game, etc… without any ingame reward.
Just my opinion.

You should read the threads more diligently idiot. This thread started before the week was up, people weren’t getting iron even though the timer was still going down

i flagged your post because of your strange reaction… i’m not an idiot at all. Stop insulting people like this, come on, we don’t even know each other.
the first com is “1 day ago” that’s exactly when the 1st week of the event ended. That’s not a coincidence, i was surprisedthat killing treasure hunter don’t give me iron anymore too.? I’m just giving evryone the answer i’ve found.

Topic: The King of Towers / Blitz Acres help

multiple strategie works very fine, even at very very low level & hero lvl :
- stack canon in the 6 or 7 first towers (keep upgrading to max). you can swap the top left tower (as it have a small range benefit) with a basic soldier tower that will help to stall escaping monster.
put you 1st hero with the small group soldier or in the starting line if he is strong enough to survive. Put the 2nd hero in the second road because he can still shoot from there.
- After you can mix arrow towers (quickly max upgrade 1 jungle tower before the first flying wave) and magic towers to finish the survivors. the choice will depend on your tech lvl and towers lvl. Focusing on your strong point is the key to going farther. But keep in mind that a jungle warfare can do better in finishing dying monster than a slow mighty mage tower.
- in the very last spot you can probably add another soldier group (1 or 2) to stop the ultimate last escaping monster when you’re overcrowed. this won’t protect you long but it will give you some time to backup your heroes and use your last spells before the end.

tips : spam spells, use militia every time it’s possible to block enemy, upgrading to the “blizzard” spell is very helpfull

good luck

Topic: The King of Towers / % scam or bug?

that’s crazy… i really can’t understand how you can waste 300$ in a basic flash game.
There are so much things more interesting to do with 300$ or even 50$.

I like PC games so i can understand what you are looking for…too but there’s a limit for evrything.

I like burgers but i won’t buy one for 100$ even if i’m the richest man in the world. I probably would only if i’m starving.

But please tell me… are you starving like if there is only 1 game left in this world ?

Topic: The King of Towers / Highscore Blitz Acres

no, i think he is ok. Blitz acres is easy, you just need to put the good tower in the good spot ;). starting at lvl 1 you can easily go to the 3rd or 4 boss, even if you are low level. when unlocked, you won’t need to restart from 0 :) you can continue the fight the next day in “auto mode” with a good score (1000+).
Remember you add +1 to your score each time you cast a spell, this is important because you can sometimes do a better final score if you’re weaker ;) winning the battle after a hard fight that take more time to finish (vs boss for example).
you can eventually block the boss with you soldier and cast lot of spells to have extra score, but it takes lot of time, and it’s always better to try to go after the harder lvl for better loot.
Final rank reward is not so interesting compared to the loot you can find after defeating each boss lvl.

Topic: The King of Towers / If you think this game is a copy...

The background and the gamestyle are from K.Rush. But there is much more content that i never see anywhere.
I don’t think you can be penalized to be a copy and original in the same time (new towers type, forging equipement/weapon, Jewelry, Pvp system, infinite upgrade lvl, talent & skills…) .

K.Rush is the first one of his kind, he will inspire lot of games & i already played some other similar games in Kongregate. Only the legitime Dev can sue if he think his job, or art is used by another one. I like K.Rush but i like this game too, sadly there is too much “Pay” content in it for a free player. I ll try to go to the limit of it in a free way.

If you give this game a chance, you’ll find it very hard and challenging after you reach lvl25 Kingdom. Like most game, you have to go farther to find what is good or not. PVP system in the Arena Pits are a good idea. There is much content at kgd lvl35 but i’m not there yet.

what i like in this game is the difficulty of hard levels, you really need to think about your strategi to succeed in some map (LAVA Maps) and advance to other ones, and that the only way to catch up with PaytoWin player.

Perhaps you can try to change the windows lengh (80% 60%) to see it.
Or try the Kongregate “fullscreen” mode, not really fullscreen but it could work too.
Or try to use MAXTHON, it’s a web browser but you can play all flash game in a full independant screen, very usefull ;) i use it for all my Kongregate games :)

Topic: The King of Towers / Fighting Pits Rewards

I begin the game late and like most of new players it will be hard to make it through the fighting pits.
Fighting Pits is the only way to get the DARK SOUL crystal, used for all interesting upgrades.
Rank :
+4000 = no crystal
301-4000 = 1 DS crystal
61 – 300 = 2 DS crystal
21 – 60 = 3 DS crystal
11 – 20 = 4 DS crystal
4 – 10 = 5 DS crystal
3 = 6 DS crystal
2 = 8 DS crystal
1 = 10 DS crystal !!!!

I rank in the 150-200 after lot of effort already & it give me only 2 dark soul crystal (par week? can’t remember the delay).

but i ll never get in the 21-60 group, why ?

- unlocking 1 hero SKILL cost 2 DSc, you need 4 skills + 5 for each new hero = 19 DSc
- unlocking all the TALENT in the tree of your 1st Hero = 54 DSc
- unlocking the 3 lvl3 towers for each sort of tower (4) = 3×4 × 2DSc = 24 DSc
- unlocking the 2 skills of the lvl3 towers = 2×3×4 x 5DSC = 130 DSc !!!!

& ADV magic skills…, and all advanced upgrade in buildings etc…

So if you manage to get in the top 1-10, you’ll probably after some weeks unlock very powefull upgrades and take the first places for ever.

And Because there is no other way to get the DarkSouls Crystal, other player like me will be stuck :) even with the best effort to reach highter ranks.

Stronger players will get stronger day after day, other ones will just quit this game.

Topic: The King of Towers / Bugs

“save the king” event was bugged, now it works fine. :( a message for update and bug resolved would be appreciated !!!!

→ About armor. My hero start with 0 armor,ok. At Kingdom lvl20, i have the opportunity to upgrade my castle Tech Lab Tree, so i add 2lvl to defense (20) to my basic armor. I can’t see the repercution nowhere. My heroes still have 0(0%) armor stat. More Info about this is required, do i need to unlock the “block talent” first or something like that ?

This game is fun but all the possible mistakes a DEV team could do is cumulated there :
0/5 communication
0/5 bug system report
0/5 for harrassing players with the diamond purchase : i’m a free player and i really respect cash players a lot for all their support. But stop the “buy” “buy” “buy” please !
0/5 for ingame information. I would like to know what armor do and how, some more precise informations would help.

Topic: The King of Towers / Bugs

Same for me. First time i reach the 20/20 victory : pop up an error message & autoresfresh then send me back to 15/20
next time same error reaction and send me back from 20 to 18/20
next same error and → 19/20

so i decided to do the 20th battle without reclaiming my reward to see what happened, instead i refresh the game. but i came back to 19/20 too, the last battle don’t want keep registered.

Topic: Kongregate / Questions about thegames8 (aka belugerin aka monsterplay999 aka awesomegames8...)

I’m really happy to see this topic and i hope something will be done vs thegame08.

these games are really very very very bad. I have nothing against bad game but it’s obviously with a bot that the rating is “overrated” in all thegames08 games.
That’s really sad and unfair for all other developper who uploaded their games.
i can confirme that all my comments have been downvoted in a way that it have never happen in any other game. My mail to the dev have never been answered too.

i already ask Kongregate to do something, but nothing really happened.
If i have the choice to do something myself, i would give all his game the 1/5 it deserve initially and warn him that the next time a bot is used he will be definitely banned.

The community ? why. I see most of the player downrating his game and writting really bad comment.
I have flagged his games and nothing have been done
Nothing change, his game always have a 4/5 ratings. :(
i would blame Kongregate to not react when dev cheats the “rating system”. And that’s not a minor problem because if other devs start to act the same way… how will we trust the games rating ?
But the one to blame is the developper who have no moral, no talent, no respect… typically the guy who don’t care about anyone.

Topic: Rise of Champions / Rise of Champions - Player Ideas/Suggestions

What the idea is :
1- King of the arena
2- Endless Challenge

What the idea intends to improve:
More content to the game

How it will go about doing that :
1- King of the arena :
1 ticket to enter and you fight only pvp (i know you will probably have to wait). If you lose that’s all, you’re out of arena with you small normal chest (like pvp). If You win let’s go to the next one with a better reward each time. That’s like the arena but if you can win more than 5 fights the rewards can be even better (focusing on more gold, more essence and more shards and why not legendary chest wih greater chance of loot).
and for glory, the name of the 3 best fighters, the name of the guild, etc…

2- Endless Challenge
1 tickets to start an endless fight vs AI player. you start vs 4 random enemy, when 1 is killed another one enter the fight with stronger stat/resist. How much can you kill before all your team die ? That is quite challenging and fun, it will make us use all sort of strategie. You can even let some npc come in the fight (golem, etc…)
Like in the king of arena, the more kill you do, the better the reward is.

i like the idea of looting better reward if your team is really succesfull and achieve great victory.

Topic: Rise of Champions / suggestion : spell cooldown

good :) congratz… it take you 4 post to begin to spit a little explanation of what should be done or not to make this game better.
you still don’t understand anything about respect, but it’s better than : “No, this is stupid. We dont need overcomplicate what already works well.”

For the first part of your post i won’t comment, i can see how old and mature you are after reading some of your post. This is going too far away for the initial topic, no ?
i remember you the fact, that i’ve started this topic about “colldown” and that you just keep trying to change to another subject.

And overall, dont try to make world of warcraft killer from small flash game.

i understand how you manage to get 1 fan and 3 friends in more than one year in Kongregate. You should probably show more respect to other ideas. I have a big experience in RPG game and every sort of strategie games. I just want to share my fellings. Evryone can agree or not to a simple idea, like BlackAeigis or riddickbg have done. It ‘s even better to argument why. Is this your argumentation ?
- Make counterspells, resist buffs whatever ??? sorry i’m still trying to understand what you try to say, but i can’t.
- but not nerf one group of skills by adding cooldown ? how is it nerfing one group of skill. its for all skills, it will just make player use all sort of skills they have already choosen in the skill tree. Making fight more interesting, less repetitive. it will stop spamming of spells for more thinking and strategic choice.
-dont try to make world of warcraft killer from small flash game… are you the one who said something about stupidity ?

Also, it would render max agi mages quite useless, making the class function somewhat like it should.

not useless, you would have to wait some seconds before casting another fireball with the same mage but he can still cast his freezing wind for example.

@Saynts : people who says this is stupid are always the stupid ones… There is nothing too complicate in a simple cooldown. And the games is not already working well, there is still some balance to be done. Ideas is what helps to change good things into better ones, ideas are not “stupid”, if you don’t like them i can understand too.

Topic: Rise of Champions / Possible Issue

Not sure but it’s better to explain here.

Some player quit battle arena very fast before the battle start.
They probably reload to simulate a lost/failed connection and it’s exactly the message given but… it’s more an exploit of the game.

I suggest to remove the left top information on the next battle (team1 vs team2), and wait until the battle start to new who you face.

Probably some player have multi team and just relaod until they face each other or they just flee the battle, i don’t know really. But i would like Dev to verify that the match is counted as a loss or hide the name of the other… this will prevent any exploit.

(i apologize for my poor english)

Topic: Rise of Champions / suggestion : spell cooldown

all is in the title.

Some spells and ability have be nerfed because they were OP.
Some other ones are never used because they are too weak.

It ’s hard to balance evrything, but adding a cooldown to the most powefull spell would make weaker spells/ability more usefull. This can give more Strategy possibility in the fight.

i would like to see a lvl1 and lvl2 for each spell/ability. Perhaps giving this opportunity at lvl10 for all the (1-10) spells/ability, then at lvl20+ when it will be added to the game ;)
