Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Getting 10% of all the money you earn.

The biggest thing is: you get the money bonus before the box opening animation plays. It’s really hard to notice if you look at money when the box shows up and after it’s open- you got the money, but the number you saw is the same.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Angel upgrades +10 +25 +50 etc.

There is something that I still don’t understand:

If I buy an angels upgrade (that improves my economy), and then I reset… will I recover those angels or keep the upgrades? Or they are lost forever? And if they are lost forever: it will be harder than before to recover them (so they are taken into account for calculating total angels)?

In other words: the angels you sacrifice will penalize you forever?

Not sure how this is a hard one. As usual, people die when they are killed.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Optimum Strategy - Lead Designer Thoughts

Without reading all the replies, I think the problem is how the game is set up. I buy multiples of 100 usually, but not because like nice tidy numbers. Most of the achievements are in multiples of 100 and the ones that aren’t (the 250s and those few all multies) are usually weaker and have a achievement after them that ends in 00. Therefore, it’s much easier to figure out what to buy next when everything is already 00, because that way you can know how much money it takes to get to the next upgrade in production, or you can get a rough idea on it for the 250 upgrades. If you want me to go back to playing sloppy (I used to just buy whatever and keep a general idea as to what would be best to buy via gut feelings), then you need to give me a $-till-next-achivement statistic on each building in a quick and easy to read location.
EDIT: also, a 250x button would be nice just to check the cost till next achivement by hand that way. And a 1000x or equally absurd number would be really nice for resets, even though it would almost always result in ugly numbers.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / What do I do with my excess AI's?

That rule of thumb is wrong, and it came because 10% is when it stops asking you if you’re sure. A better way to say it would be “don’t think about not spending it if the game doesn’t ask, and figure out if it’s worth it on an individual basis if the game does ask.”

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / For phase two, are you guys going to make us all hard reset?

I made a second playthrough (abusing import/export), and it took me ~1 week to get to 2k all. 21x kreds multiplier.

This is a bad strategy.

It’s a great strategy if they released the update that made the window only appear if it cost more than 1% of your AIs AFTER you had enough angels to never see that message again!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Angel Claim is USELESS

I’m pretty sure the multipliers are worth more than just 100x their weight in angels. Once in late-ish game (~1700-1800 newspapers, can’t remember exactly) my multiplier didn’t load. I noticed a significant drop in speed in which i could buy things, and that was only losing an 18x multiplier.

Stop asking for updates! Every time i get even remotely close to beating the game, you people ask to make the end go further away! Every time that happens, it gets harder to beat the game!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / no angel sacrifice achievement

Uh, the current angel upgrades DO actually delete your angels. He’s saying you just don’t buy the upgrades that MURDER ANGELS for ONE play through.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]Suggestion thread

Really? Huh. I must be a bit spoiled by LoL and their 300 base move speeds and their boots and the like.
Is there any word as to if/when a kind of refferal system might be put into effect?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]Suggestion thread

I personally think that the movement speed workouts are under-powered. The highest one is 1 move speed, when the theoretically slowest possible champion’s move speed is 200. This means that, even if you are playing a champion who is impossibly slow, and you get the highest possible boost to move speed from the workouts (5), then you managed to squeeze out an additional 2.5% move speed. This is not enough to make any difference whatsoever. 225 move speed vs 220 move speed is not quite enough to kite, or escape, or get to an objective faster than anyone else. The only thing it is usable for is staying in range against people who have the same base move speed that you have, and even then if they were on the edge of your range, you’d get very few attacks off. I’d suggest doubling the move speed for each of the exercises, so buying the move speed boosts actually had a noticeable difference in your move speed.
Keep in mind, i have not obtained a high enough level to see if the +5 move speed is faster than i think it is, so you may want to do a little bit of investigating before implementing this.
EDIT: I have no idea why a portion of my post is underlined. I apologize.
EDIT 2: A refferal system might increase the numbers of players.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Biggest Flaw in Game?

I’m inclined to agree with Sourfoe. I mean, there isn’t even an explanation for the increase in time it takes your army to move. MAYBE if it was based off of size of the army you moved last, kind of a “it takes more effort to move that many people” thing…
