This would not be an issue if checking all my 14 outposts didn’t take half an hour because of massive lag and loading times… So I think that’s the real problem.

Just made a guide for it: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/81-backyard-monsters/topics/189903-a-simple-guide-to-free-shiny

There are surveys you can complete, software you can download and other offers you can complete, all of which give you Kreds. Some require you to have a credit/debit card but you can cancel the payment before you pay after trial and keep the Kreds you get. Others ask you to purchase something but can give you more Kreds for what you spend than you would normally get for your money just straight out buying Kreds.

Personally I have earned over 4000 Shiny from the offers.

This is MUCH faster than picking mushrooms!
Enjoy!

I meant it heals faster to full than others cause it has less hp that needs healing ;)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Fomor Appreciation Society

Here gather we who own, use and appreciate the magnificently superior flying beast which Fomor is.

Mine is just a few hours away from evolving, just can’t wait until it can fly.

Let’s start this thread with reasons why Fomor is the choice of the smart and considerate Backyard governor, feel free to continue the list.

1) It. Flies. (From Level 3)
2) It has a massive attack range.
3) It heals on its own faster than other Champs.
4) It is the superior choice for defense because it buffs bunker monsters.
5) It buffs attacking monsters as well making you need a smaller army to effectively farm NPCs and destroy players.

Fomor hands down. Makes attacking fun. And buffs bunker monsters for defense.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Blackwater Park - a level 40 yard.

Posted it in Base Creation Help a couple days ago, here it is a bit improved and in all detail.

Features:
- Thoroughly tested pathing:

  • All tower attacking monsters complete going around the perimeter before going in for the Aerial Defense Towers and catapults don’t break the pathing, making the layout outlast even a PPX (10M Puttied Project-X attack)
  • All looting monsters go through the Never Ending Chain of harvesters before going in for the Town Hall/Silo Death Trap
  • DAVEs and other “anything” attacking monster groups SPLIT while attacking, making DAVE+Zafreeti and similar attacks fail.

- Hardly baitable Bunkers. Suggested content of each: 3 Rocket DAVEs, 1 Eye-Ra (if you wish), the rest: Whirlwind Banditos.
- Decent Concentrated Fire (3-4 towers attack at the same time) without making anything particularly vulnerable to Catapults.



Tower levels: ADT:3, Lasers:3, Teslas:2, Snipers:5, Cannons:6, Bunkers:3. All going way up once I’m done with wall and harvester upgrades.

If this isn’t a base that would take too much effort and resources to take down then such a thing doesn’t exist.

Bonus: the layout that I use for all of my Outposts now:

Tip: If you want free Shiny for extra workers/yardage/storage etc., do the free Kreds offers… there are several that don’t require payment, some require credit card details but don’t charge you for a few days so you can cancel the trial after getting the Kreds :)

Next update will come when I’m done with the Black Diamond walls ;)

Irrelevant. EVERYTHING IS CATAPRONE. IMMA USE 10M PEBBLES ON U 10 TIMES AND U DIE LOLO HERP.

Btw my Bunkers are level 3, ADTs are level 3 and 4, lasers are level 3, Snipers are level 5 on the way to 6, cannons are level 6, teslas are level 2.

What do you think about my new layout?
I dare you to find a vulnerability.

It delays/stalls PPX.
ADTs are always hit last by tower attacking monsters.
TH/SDT is always entered after most of the RGs have been taken down, so it’s after quite a while.
And I don’t think anything is particularly more cataprone than any other yard would be.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Post all bug reports here please!

I don’t think there’s a need for a separate thread for every bug in the game so how about we put them all here?

Let me start off with what I know about:

  • If bunker is moved while sending monsters to it the monsters will disappear
  • Sometimes when attacking on World Map while still building monsters in home yard the entire queue and contents of the housing disappear after the attack even if not using any monsters in the attack

Unsure if those 2 above still exist.

And since the new update:

  • I cannot visit friends’ yards, clicking on their icons does nothing

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Outpost layout discussion


The bunkers have banditos in them with 1 eye-ra each.
I don’t really see any reason to move the blocks of the huge starter kit as they have really good pathing as it is. (in before you accuse me of wasting shiny – I never bought any kits, all my outposts were taken from neighbors)
I know there is no Outpost which could survive a PPX so I think the main point of an outpost is to make any other kind of attack be as long and costly as possible – if the base isn’t leveled in 2 attacks you get temporary protection which could save your outpost!
So the main concern in my opinion are catapult & ichi/crab+zaf attacks.
I’m thinking to switch the bunkers with the inner top and bottom cannons to make them less baitable.
What could be improved?

IcyRulez you really are an elaborate troll aren’t you?

I’ve played this game daily since June 9th. All my monsters are unlocked and both of my academies have NEVER been idle, always upgrading something – I have 9 monsters at level 5, most others nearly there. And a lot of putty goes for overtaking of outposts. Like I said, the only thing I bought was 2 more workers.

If you want to see a shiny waster you should see my neighbor Renwa (rank 6, level 40). A laughable main base design, goes down in 2 waves of some catapults and zaf+ichi. And thanks to him I have 5 outposts with the huge starter kit :P I haven’t had the need to buy any kits myself :P

And once again you went completely off topic. It’s called Base Creation Help. Get out.

Icy seems you don’t even know how WM looks like.. Genius who wastes 10M putty for laughable loot. Would like to hear in more detail how you would defeat by base, using what, in what order and from what angle, besides obvious PPX.

Who the hell use PPX at this stage of the game? For what, 5M loot?
And what are you going to catapult without killing the silos? And then what?
Elaborate.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] Base Creation Help - Check First Page For Screenshot Instructions And Please Zoom Out When Taking Screenies!

All I ever bought like many other people was 2 more workers, what does that have to do with anything you poor ignorant moron?
On a side note, my base has never ever been levelled so far and I’ve had this layout since like level 25 which is why it wasn’t planned for 4 bunkers etc…
I know a PPX would have easy work with it but I’ve never encountered anyone wishing to waste that much goo and putty so early in the game.
Any reasonable advice?

Any ideas to improve this besides the obviously crap placement of bunkers which I’m not sure what to do with?
