Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Bugs Megathread

I’ve owned the controlled territory for 22 hours, and haven’t gotten any bloonstone bonuses from it at all. Control for one hour should be x5 and control for 4 hours should be x5, so I should have a 25x multiplier on the bloonstones that I earn. Instead, I have to wait 1-3 days for upgrade timers to expire like anybody else, because I’m not earning the bloonstones for instant upgrade completion, like I should be.
I started playing yesterday, and foolishly bought the 50 Kred package. I may continue playing, but I definitely am not buying any more bloonstones. Not when I should be earning tons of them by owning the controlled territory, and I’m not getting crap. This is a huge bug that needs fixed! It’s a problem with currency, just the same as if you weren’t earning the correct amount of gold, and it completely breaks the game!

Yeah, that really wouldn’t make any sense, would it? But seeing as how he didn’t do that, you yourself aren’t making any sense. Get off the drugs.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / IS 4 megabucks alot?

The way this game has gone, MegaBucks will only be useful in increments of 100, and 100 MegaBucks will cost $3.00 worth of kreds.

And if you pump cash into this game to get to the end, you’re going to stay broke… Even people with 20+ multipliers are hitting ‘impossible’ walls.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Why the moon is so slow!

Dude, that topic was started 7.5 months ago. They aren’t going to give free gold, they aren’t fixing the moon, and as long as people keep throwing cash at them, they aren’t implementing Mega Bucks.

These guys have some sort of algorithm set up on their computer that follows plays + ad revenue + gold sales. When their computer starts spitting numbers below their decided threshold, THEN they’ll introduce some silly update that tweaks things a little bit.

Only when their income from the game slows down a lot will they introduce a game changing update.

With 37,000,000+ plays and constantly growing, they’ve created a freaking cash cow, and now their sole purpose is to collect money off of it… And I don’t blame them for that.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Why the moon is so slow!

The moon isn’t meant to be a challenge, it’s meant to be a money sink. I’ve heard people with 20x multipliers complaining because they’ve hit ‘impossible’ walls. The moon is a joke.

I got the ‘everything 100’ unlock (after a few months), and there is no way I am resetting now. They’ll either update the game, or I’ll just leave the game for good where it is. The only reason I am here now is because I check back about once a week to see if there are any updates.

Topic: Holyday City / 1st Legit G8 P30?

Using any source outside of the game to give you an advantage is cheating, rather the dev says so or not.

Using walk-throughs to beat a game.
Using cash to buy upgrades that otherwise aren’t available.
Using an auto-clicker.

These are all things outside of the game.

However, I am of the opinion that a player cannot possibly cheat in a one player game. The game was designed for the players enjoyment. If the player of a single player game enjoys modifying his gaming experience through auto-clickers, walk-throughs or cash upgrades, that’s his business. The single player game was designed for the single players gaming experience.

I only consider using outside sources to give yourself an advantage as cheating when you are playing a multiplayer game…
But again, if you spend $100 on multipliers, don’t brag about your progress, because your progress was not ‘legit’. And if you think your progress was legit, then why not pay the dev $50 to create an ‘I won’ screen saver for you??? Would that be a ‘legit’ win? Nope.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / How Do You Feel About Free Gold?

What’s it matter what the players think about getting free gold? We all know how players feel about the moon, and nothing has changed there. Plus, this thread was started 7 months ago… They aren’t going to give free gold, and they aren’t going to ‘fix’ the moon.

Topic: Holyday City / 1st Legit G8 P30?

You people can play how you want, but I don’t see any point in playing if you’re going to pay for advantages. To me, that just makes the game shorter. You may as well just pay the guy $50 to make you an ‘I WON!’ Screen Saver, and skip the game all together. But then, that’s just my opinion.

On the note of having market boosts, and I don’t have loads for that matter, but anyway…I apologise for supporting a good developer

And Atombender yes, it says 31

Nothing wrong with supporting the developer. Just don’t say, “Hey, I beat the game in two hours because I gave the developer $100.” That isn’t ‘legit’.

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Who all bought the Magicians Pouch?

I see so many people rating the game 1/5 because the Magicians Pouch costs $5.00. The Magicians Pouch is okay, but it isn’t a game changer. The game can be completed without it.

Anyhow, I bought the Magicians Pouch. I figured, I’d be playing the game for at least 2 weeks, why not throw the dev a few bucks?

If you’ve also bought the Magicians Pouch, feel free to quote the below post, and add your name to the list.
Let’s show the whiners some community support for developers that make great games!

Great, so I’ve been missing upgrades all these weeks? 975 nonillion has always been the highest upgrade on the moon that I’ve ever seen. Eff this game.

I got used to the fact things happen more slowly on the moon it suits me.

The moon moves a lot more slowly than you realize, friend. After the A.I.+1% upgrade for 20 septillion, the next meaningful upgrade will cost 160 nonillion. I make about 35 octillion a day. To get to just 1 nonillion, you need 999 octillion… That’s roughly 3 weeks of play, (errr, not play, waiting,) without resetting, just to get 1. There is a reason that the final upgrade on the moon costs
975 nonillion. That reason is because you are never going to get that far. I’ve heard people with 20x multipliers complaining because they keep hitting walls… The only way you are going to reach the ‘end’ of this game is if you spend a few hundred dollars on Kreds. Slow? That isn’t ‘slow’, that’s a clear money grab attempt from the devs.

Face it. This game is no longer ‘free’ to play. The only way that you’ll make progress is by using 1,000’s of Kreds… And why would I use 1,000’s of Kreds on a pointless flash idle game, when I can buy a couple of XBox games for the same money???

You gave it a 0 of 5… So, does that mean you didn’t rate the game at all?

Never mind that, how many years will it take to get 10 duotrigintillion on the moon, so that you can unlock a manager? The new update that everyone has been waiting for did nothing at all for us!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / $66 megabucks, and officially stalled on Moon

The devs aren’t going to update the moon as long as people keep on buying gold. Why would they? They made the game for one reason, and one reason only: To manipulate players into giving them as much money as they can get. If people keep throwing 100’s of dollars at them like the O.P. apparently did, then they aren’t going to make one single change. The only time changes will come is when gold sales drop off.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Reaching 100 lasers

In case you were wondering how long it will take to get the ‘everything 100 unlock’, this has been my experience:

I started on the moon when it was first released on March 27th (TWO MONTHS AGO). By the time I reached 1.8 billion A.I., I pretty much lost interest in the game, so I decided to buy the 666 A.I. Oxygen Bar upgrade, and see how long it would take to reach 100 lasers.

I reached 98 lasers last Monday.
Just this morning, (Saturday), I bought my 99th laser. It cost 180 octillion.
The 100th laser will cost 271 octillion.
So with gains at roughly 30 octillion a day, it will take another 9 days to purchase the final laser, just for the ‘everything 100 unlock’…

Soooo, in case you were wondering, “How long will it take to get 100 lasers?”
My answer? 2 full months and 1 week…
Have fun :/

Goodbye AdCap. I might check back in 10 days to get the 100th laser. But, I probably won’t. I used to log in multiple times a day. Now I log in once or twice a week. You did nothing but destroy your revenue from plays in exchange for selling gold bars. Hope it works out for you… NOT!

Topic: Holyday City / 'Take A Break' 3x Multiplier working incorrectly

“After 3 hours break (offline), city employees will be more effective for 12 hours (all profits x3).”

This is the third time in a row that the ‘Activate’ button was green, I click the activate button, and the 3x multiplier didn’t work.

I am obviously offline for more than 3 hours at a time (8 hours sleep, 8 hours work), yet this multiplier only works randomly, seemingly less than half the time.

Anybody else notice this not working correctly? With over a million plays, I’m surprised that no one else has brought this up yet.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Update: Less money?

Of course they nerfed the game with the latest update, notice all of the new ‘buy gold’ buttons? They weren’t happy with the ad revenue generated from 33 MILLION plays, so now they want people to constantly use their credit cards to keep the game flowing. Any other content updates (like the use of ‘moon bucks’) from the AdCap team are just going to be gimmicks to get people to ‘buy gold’.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: Developer / "How to Play" with Lead Designer Cody!

THREAD EDIT: How To Play: Spend Kreds.

Seriously. I’ve been on the moon since the moon was released, and I STILL can’t get the ‘Everything 100 Unlock’.

The game has turned into a grab for cash, and with over 32 million plays, I don’t blame them for making the move.

I, however, have lost all interest in the game. Progress is extremely slow, unless you dump 100’s of dollars into it.
And you dump money into the game, for what??? There is no purpose to the game, no final point, no goal, no conclusion…

No thanks.

Nothing near the quality of an Xbox or PS3 game :)

Topic: Holyday City / Post if you want buy 10 buy 100 feature back

No, that feature sucked! Like the poster above you said, if you didn’t have enough money to buy exactly 10 or exactly 100, then you had to do a lot more clicking. Screw that.

It doesn’t make sense to buy exactly 100 anyways. By the time you get a business to the next multiple of 100, (say from 1,437 up to 1,500), there is something cheaper to buy.

I personally would prefer the developer spend time adding more gameplay than to spend time adding a stupid toggle that most players will never use.
