Kong is having issues, affecting multiple games. Things were completely down a few hours ago, better now but still having some lingering issues.

Topic: Dream World / Halloween event

50% exp and coin definitely encourages me to play. It tends to drag 90+ without an event and you run out of coin very fast.

KingK, solve this now, give everyone a big trophy for playing, don’t have to do good or play hard or even play much, but everyone gets a trophy so they can feel good cause there are no losers. Works in little league baseball and soccer, might work here too.

Topic: Dream World / Halloween event

Maybe after this event KingK needs to stop the event entirely for a few months. Bring it back for Christmas maybe. Everyone will be so grateful at that point and not bitch and whine if its turned on 30 seconds late. I sometimes wonder if these people are the kids who play in youth sport leagues that gives everyone a giant trophy just for participating.

It would have been better if you didn’t feel entitled to more and were just happy that something, anything, extra came along.

Topic: Dream World / Total Stupidity

Total stupidity is a little dramatic.
Staff is definitely significantly more powerful. 2 examples – 1. staff hits harder to make up for lower block, for low level players higher damage means easier and cheaper pf’s which means more exp for less coin on e or dust and faster in real time spent 2. for mid-game players, maybe just restat for the first time, swords needs all the stats, staff can mostly ignore str and quick, giving more learning points to spend in int and dex thus having a bigger sp pool and hitting overcrit cap far sooner. I can’t speak to the top10 experience so not even going to try.
A few patches ago it was much worse, the initial implementation of battle fatigue affected all bosses, not just the 1hit kill ones. The increased delay before it kicks in and the talisman upgrade do both help but the overwhelming dominance of the class in the top rankings is more then just a lemming effect. A fatigue effect for staff would curb their strength a bit.
After all of this, why am I still swords? In games like this I’m always a melee class, just don’t have the svelte figure to pull off a dress.

It was because of an apostrophe in the guild name – ’84.

‘84 was different, I’m thinking of a guild that got a few FW’s then disbanded, screwed up the score screen for a few hours.

Topic: Dream World / What the ... market logic?

It’s almost like the black market is automated and randomized so once in a while you get a real deal instead of everything being exactly the same time after time….nah, couldn’t be.

the baktun symbolised the creation of a new exsistance. Every baktun a new exsistance is created, but you can’t create over what already exsist so something must go down :)

Untrue – for the Mayans the creation of the current world was approximately 5000 years ago. A baktun is a period of roughly 400 years, think a century or millennium, and under the Mayan habit of using base 20 in their calendars it will last ~8000 years so not much to worry about for the next 3000 years or so. This end of the world stuff is just christians displacing their beliefs. The world didn’t end in the 1600s, 1200s, 800s, 400s and so on.

If you want to really balance the classes then make it so that every class has the exact same skills and bonus but different skill names.

Isn’t this kind of the way it is? Every class has basically the same skills or easy access to the specials(heals, divine light, call bunnies, etc)….the big difference is how weapon enchants and stat allocation work.

Topic: Dream World / Cock(playing chicken)blocking Faction.

This was brought up a while ago, kingk said he was looking at idea’s but the topic hasn’t come up much since. It is definitely frequently 1-sided but look at how many guilds on the weaker side don’t even down a single FW at the end of a weekend.

Topic: Dream World / purposes for balancing classes

@mrwiggs8 I never said lucky, I said happy. I die 10-16 enough that those few times I make it past 16 are quite thrilling and my only real hope of doing anything to keep up with a staff. Even without the decay we do less damage so I don’t understand why we have to be the only class to really be hit by something like that.
Some balance is not too much to ask for, guns do enough damage above swords to be material but staff is the real problem. The difference in necessary stats someone mentioned on page one is minor if coded right – str/dex/quick give slightly more damage per point to sword then dex/quick give to guns and dex gives to staff. Int is a fundamental design issue, staff will have more the way things are set up and guns can have between that and sword. This does end up costing swords/gun more coin(thus more e) though later on it is trivial for the most part.
The suggestions to hit staff with a set % spell damage decay seems a little imbalanced if its being applied to their weapon/class bonus(see the math for how this works) – that would hit a 70-80 a lot harder then a 90 with hundreds of spell damage. Decaying a percent of their total spell damage(or spell power?) would balance better.

Topic: Dream World / purposes for balancing classes

One idea might be to implement the decay for mages and gunners too(yes the block decay affects them too but how often does a mage get 16 rounds on a 1 hit boss? I’m swords and with effectively 90%+ block I’m happy if I make 16 rounds). Basically, have spell damage decay 1/10 of its total a round after round 2 and gun crit decay 10% a round after round 5….if this is too much it can be tweaked to rounds 3 and 6 with the next patch in 3 months.

Good start but if you are going to troll go for the gold…I mean where does Neocorn get off calling himself a king? Demand to see a birth certificate, and not one of those fake officially certified ones with the state seal and accurate information that are backed up by 40 year old contemporary newspaper announcements, demand the REAL birth certificate.
