Topic: Realm Grinder / Scrying Issues

Holy crap yeah THREE MINUTE videos. What?

I’m starting to lean toward just ignoring scrying anymore. It’s an almost perpetual hassle. Especially since I’ve already GIVEN you money!

Topic: Realm Grinder / The Excavation menu

Just accidentally bought max excavs early in R16. The game reinforces two contrary actions, either buy one or buy max, and shifting mindsets between them is getting confusing with the extra menus and changes in implementation.

Put separate buy buttons (1, 10, 100, Max) on the excavs menu.

Edit: Also, if you’re going to fiddle with excavs this much, consider including a free reset or two per reincarnation. I’m stuck doing a LOT of work now to overcome this, which makes me want to just take a break from RG. Which is a shame, since I don’t like spending on a game and then feeling shut out.

Topic: Realm Grinder / Scrying Issues

I got that once… it DID let me claim a perk. But, since then, it’s gone right back to what it was doing before. It’s been over a day now, and scrying is completely useless.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Bleak event calendar?

The event calendar for the week looks oddly empty. Has anyone else noticed this?

It feels like a sad lack of windup for the holidays. :(

I’m experiencing the exact same thing Unknownlurker describes. Just started today. No other ads will come up.

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Exp after 9k1?

I’m trying to figure out the point of gaining exp after hitting 9k1. I’m in an Imp and the wiki says that, after hitting 9k1, exp gain is increased 30%. What purpose does this serve?

Topic: Realm Grinder / Thanksgiving Season Event

+25% bonus to go with cloudy sphere lack of +100% bonus :/

… and my connection is fine, thanks. There’s usually tons of ads in the Chicago area.

Edit: Also, discount on GotH, which is cheap and many folks have, but none on later Gifts? :/

Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / FCG: Sword Rain?

So I’ve had to start over after being gone for several months and switching machines. If FCG, I used to use a Sword Rain deck that was generally good for levels 1-6, but I can’t recall the exact makeup of it. Does anyone have this build?

I’m not looking for a link to Pwolf’s spreadsheet or the myriad builds people have used to do “great in Level 6 after a few tries,” just the build that used to be called Sword Rain.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Taking a break because of two major issues with the game

I have to take a break from CotLI because the game has two major issues that make it drag more than the other games I’m generally playing.

First: Chests. The animations for finding chests, looting them, and getting Crusaders enchanted becomes TEDIOUS after about the third chest. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of chests later, and dealing with them grates on my nerves. It’s a big slowdown in the pace of the game.

Second: Speaking of pace drag… restarting after you Press the Button. Because there’s no support for restarts except increased Idol Power, getting each new game up to speed is irksome and boring.

Almost half my active playtime is spent dealing with these two issues. Extremely boring for an otherwise nice game. I hope you address them soon. Until then, I’m taking a break. Feel free to PM me when you’ve fixed these problems.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / I found a nice use for Jack !!

I find his Cry ability, with support, helps when I go afk… the group will get another boss or two farther along before stalling while I’m gone.

Topic: Game Programming / I like when involved, long-play games do this!

I like when they don’t bother with cloud or server saves, and instead use local savegames. The second my save poofs, I know to 1/5 the game and play something else!

We’re too far along nowadays for you folks to not do this, folks.

(By the way, yes, I know how to not accidentally trash local game saves. But local saves break far too easily and setting up server saves is easy enough nowadays, it should be standard practice.)

Topic: Global Assault: General / Current low-end league rewards are garbage

Not all of them, but the newer t2 and t3 units are junk. No swarms, supply drones… nothing fusable for newer units. Just a lot of unfuseable crap.

I’m just saving my coin for next week… but I wanted to express my disappointment. One only needs so many Needlers and Thunderbirds.

Topic: Global Assault: General / PLEASE stop giving us so many non-stacking defense effects!

Rally + mark + laser + shrapnel + strike + strike all + pierce + incendiary stack across a team. Yes, only one rally effect and one mark effect can take effect, but there’s a LOT more stacking damage output than there is stacking defense. Many “barrier” effects are wasted due to lack of stacking, to where autobarrier is a joke to teams with barrier all, and vice versa.

Autobarrier, alone, would be better represented as autorepair. They’ve added numerous new stacking offensive effects (laser, shrapnel, emp, reprisal), they can add ONE new stacking defense effect. Since there are several offenses that are AoE, I think we’d also be due an AoE defense, such as a unit that cloaks or repairs adjacent units.

Topic: Global Assault: General / PLEASE stop giving us so many non-stacking defense effects!

Between Barrier, Barrier All and Autobarrier, my crafting options are a minefield of uncooperative defense options. Every offensive effect stacks because they all apply instantly on impact (except Incendiary doesn’t stack with itself), but defenses are shockingly uncooperative.

I don’t know what to suggest, but this is a distressing issue.

Topic: Global Assault: General / all regular units should be removed from league crates

Jackrabbit is not regular, imo… you can’t craft it f2p.

I agree with this. I’m up to my ears in Fury and Phoenix units.

We’re still looking for more friendly, casual players who want to see a little league progress! Currently gold, almost platinum.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug v 2.0

Edit: Never mind… apparently, I was supposed to take them to 150. I need a dev to remove the clown and monkey from my game, OR a liink to a game editor so I can remove them myself. I don’t need a constant reminder of how I started just as the event did and so missed out on most of it.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Suggestions

Thanks for not even considering extending the event, like so many other games would have. I know a lot of newer players who fell JUST short of being powerful enough to try/enjoy it. (Myself included, who barely got to the elephants before it ended.)

Never mind that the game is still new-ish and still building it’s player base.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Bug/Issue Report

Still missing a supply drone. Also, it’s impressive how USELESS the T2 league crate vehicles are. Been trying to get a Swarm for a month, all I get are useless, unfuseable T2 junk vehicles.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Bug/Issue Report

BigheadRo shows how broken your team strength system is. He shows to me as completely trivial… all the way to the left on the scale… but his team is BRUTAL. He’s not the only one, either. Re-evaluate your system.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Bug/Issue Report

I had three Supply Drones, upgraded two and fused them into a Hinder Drone, got two more Supply Drones today… now I have two Supply Drones and a Hinder Drone.

…something is wrong, there.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / Suggestions Thread: September

Why aren’t card pack rewards tied to server midnight, like just about every other daily or longer mechanic is?

Leaving the daily rewards on a true 24h timer actually results in less than 7 packs per week for anyone who can’t obsessively hover over the Claim buttons.

Topic: Idle Online Universe: Discussion, Feedback, and Suggestions / Group Optimization: Party Boost vs DPS focus?

I was thinking… when I’m grouped, Party Boost helps me. But, if I instead focused on dps ascension bonuses, that would help the entire group. If the entire group did this, it’d be everybody helping everybody.

BUT

I’m pretty poor at math like this. So I was wondering… does anyone have any practical input on the idea? Not just anecdotal evidence, eyeballed numbers, or rote “do it/don’t do it” education they picked up in chat, but actual information to impart?
