Topic: Lionheart Tactics: Events / Remove common slots from the lottery system!!!

There is a huge gamble system in so many micro transaction stuff. If I enjoy a game, i will pay for some good stuff, but if I want to gamble, there are other ways to do that, like the stock market…

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Seem to have hit a wall. Need help.

I don’t know what tracks you have in minds, but lets see.

I have a standard setup for most maps, adapted it from the one I used on “no farm” maps and it works most of the time. On farm maps I tend to get a 2/0 farm up and maybe a second one but that depends on how the map “feels”.

So I use a Engineer at the start of the track, might be a apprentice on some maps. I need that guy for the lead and cloaked stuff. At the end of the track, I get a factory.

I get a Ninja somewhere in the middle, get a monkey village, upgrade the Ninja 4/2, get a second one. I’m building all the stuff around my village. After that, two Moab Mauler 3/2 hitting the strong stuff. A monkey ace 4/0. If the map has DDT village gets to be 2/3, else 2/0. If I have more money, I add more Maulers, maybe another Ninja, and if I have farms, maybe a super monkey.

On some maps, I use tack shooter 4/0 instead of Ninjas, but it seems I need a third mauler on those. If I can’t get a Monkey Ace, I use a super Monkey, but that’s a little harder. So the core of my strategy stays the same.

On some maps I need to get some extra defense in some middle rounds, I upgrade the factory 1/2.

That U-Turn map, do you mean the badland one with the two bridges above the track? That one is nasty. There is a similar one as lake territory. Still figuring out those, but I used mortar instead of engineer or apprentice on those maps, still have some problems with them.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Bugs Megathread

I’m really pissed of about Flash crashing always right after you finished a tile, but just before saving the progress. Thats a really stupid design, they are able to save the progress with CT every round, but have there save point for normal tiles right after the famous point of flash crashing? Save it and then return to map, I’m doing the same tile 2-3 times most of the time and I’m not very encouraged to ever spend Money on that kind of annoyance.

Since this happens on two different PCs I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with that problem

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Occupation Rewards

Occupation was a bad idea, it’s pretty much one guy gets everything, Milestones are far more fair than that

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Contested Territory (CT)

The Milestone Event is far better than this one. Milestone was a way everyone could get some rewards, even if he doesn’t catch the CT, now you are either top or getting nothing. Don’t think many players will like this

Topic: Star Era / petition to stop server merging

I hope, if I still stick here, I will not see any rants from you guys, otherwise, you guys are just a bunch of hypocrites, on the top of being ignorant fools.

Yeah, really a needed remark…

A server merge is always something bad for the players, there is nothing to gain here, but lots to lose.
The second truth about server merge is…you can’t stop them. They are always about money, less server means lower costs. No way you can stop the host once he decided. Ranting about it won’t change a thing, they can just be honest about it, this is just lame:

we merge the servers in order to bring more active players to the same game world and improve the gaming environment

This is honest:

Originally posted by ckisa112:

I’m sorry for being direct but “improving the gaming environment” sounds ridiculous as an answer. The only thing you’re hoping to improve is your own monetary income by milking those players who will strive to stay competitive after the merge. It’s a greedy yet economically understandable reason, but at least be honest.

Topic: Star Era / Suggestions wanted

Originally posted by SEGM:

as for the Multiple Power ,we made it because it will help players more easily to beat the high lvl infecters

No, you really didn’t achieve your goal here. You made sure older cards can’t compete to the newer multipower cards against infectors, probably so you could sell more. Since having more powerful cards only means you will get even higher infectors faster, the player is back to square one having a hard time beating his higher level infectors. People who don’t have these multipower cards, will have less of a chance to get a higher ranking in the event.

So instead spending a little for maybe some extra GEP, it’s spend a lot to get all those cards and some extra GEP? bad move in my opinion

Topic: Kongregate / Has KONG becoming WORSE under the years?

Originally posted by RollerCROWster:

yes.

Kong went downhill when they started promoting pay2win mmorpg cashgrabs over good games.

Pretty much the main problem, to many p2w games, to much cash grabbing.

Of course Kong is a business, and it’s ok to get content you have to pay for, or get more adds to get more money. The downside of these games are obvious. If they are about competition between players, p2w makes sure there is no real competion from the start. Thats a bad concept for a game, capitalism is getting on my nerve in real life all the time, I don’t want that in my flash games.

So the feeling about Kong is, once it was about games and fun, now it’s about money and greed.

Topic: War of Omens / Word of Unmaking too Powerful

so what? It’s good against card XX, it’s not that great against card YY, sometimes your draw helps you, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s part of the game, use some strategy, change it if you are facing a different opponents. If your opponent has a seduce up, don’t play a kickass ally card, if your opponent has embezel on the field, use your ressources so they can’t be stolen, you know, react to the current game.

Why would one even complain about that?

Topic: War of Omens / WTF is up with blue being so op?

Thats a minor point

Blue is easy to play, and can lead to a fast win. In the long run, they will be weak, just be patient, keep yourself alive and don’t offer blue to many good cards. The updates didn’t do much to change that

Topic: War of Omens / Bots

No, that might sound like a clever way to get around this, but in the end “fraudulent activity” is more than enough to get this kind of bot banned.

Sales in mind, a bot that generates free silver fast will not be tolerated by any: “oh someone wouldn’t call this cheating, whatever shall we do” kind of argumentation. It’s just a matter of whether or not they care about such things.

Really feels like Workteam is payed by the devs, really a lot of crap in his Posts.

Like many People said, all the last stuff is just one big “PAY US MORE” sign. Lesser useful stuff with the star rewards, even lesser Cards since it’s 50 stars instead of 25, way lesser free DP. That together with rather hard bosses, you get the scheme, they are less than subtile about it.

I give you my answer: NOT A DIME.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Patchnotes 01-15-2014 + COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

Just look at the high scores, workteam, 383 Objektives completed. I don’t think he can even imagine how hard some of those would have been with just one shuffle, I really had to shuffle a lot at some stars, I still could use just another card from my deck to win and just can’t get it. So it’s less strategy, more luck now, except if you have a very high powered deck, in that case, strategy is not really needed anyway most of the times.

So I don’t think workforce perspective is of any importance, with him looking down on all those other players, not getting the point why this is a problem

Topic: Kongregate Labs / [Dawn of Darkness] Tips for Success

Equipment Grade Frost is level 70, it’s just 10 level since a level takes longer.

Auto combine gem is a great tool, you can control which grade of gems gets fused, and the higher stuff will be stored in you gem spaces, you just have to make sure there are enough free places. The auto combine stopped for me because my storage was full, so there is no need to warn anyone about the auto combine tool

Souls come in different qualitys, green, blue, purple and yellow. higher quality means you can get higher stats. Spending to many vouchers on low level souls might be something you don’t want.

As far as I know, Mount levels only work for your main hero. You get 20 chances a day to upgrade this with silver and you should use them. Untill you get higher level Heros, your main hero is your strongest weapon.

I would comment about the Boosts, the reincarnation and the need to get Reputation, Speed and Cards for Skill levels, but it seems you didn’t mention that.

I really missed a thread like this one when I started the game, and I still would love to get some more information about some topics. Still can’t figure out if I should use Topaz, Jet, Sun or something else. I did get around 50 more power from a jet III lvl 10 than a Topaz III lvl 10, but that still doesn’t answer which one is the better choice.

The most stupid Change I ever seen in my life. If you want to do that, make sure I don’t get the SAME F U C K I N G 3 Cards I had before using Shuffle. Yeah, repair that shit first, then make changes.

OK, calming down now, everything is fine…

Yeah, that all happend because of “Balance”, not because the game designer just used FB to design the Events and just didn’t care about the Kong Version. They wanted People to buy energy on the Event they gave MD away, we slipped through that scheme.
