Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Town recruitment thread

Level 25/Beginner looking for a town. I’m in a decent town (230k, good regen) but I’m the only player here. Mainly selling Bows and Potions at this moment, if that matters.

Topic: The King of Towers / Pretty Ridiculous

By the way, those weights are deceiving, but fair. You get 6 tavern cards per day, it would be ludicrous if you had a high chance of big rewards every time. Look at it as 6 free crystals with a minor chance of something better. Same goes for the daily free spins: it’s a bit of extra gold, with a chance of a (slightly) better item.

However, the one that really pisses me off is the chests you can get from the Supply Center. It contains either a top tier equipment item, or the bottom tier crystal. That is just ridiculous. Keep the variance a bit less absurd and the game would be much less frustrating.

Topic: The King of Towers / Blitz Acres lvl5

I got to level 30 by putting 3 Dragooners on the first three spots (one in left corner, two in 1st row bottom slots), then a lvl 1 Barracks above the left Dragooner, then Wizard Towers/Arrows everywhere. Once you get the Witch + Tornado tower unlocked, going full Witch/Tornado will let you win to lvl 30 (capped by hero level currently).

It does take some good management of your heroes and spells. Use your Guards spell once your barracks units die to give them time to respawn, or to group up units for a Snow Storm spell. Once you get the Tornado ability, fill up the nearby slots. Prioritize lvl 3 Tornado over new towers. Not only is the cooldown reduced, but the pushback range (and damage) is increased too. Pushes enemies right back into Dragooner range.

Topic: The King of Towers / Pretty Ridiculous

This is a warning to all game developers… We’re smarter than this. We don’t fall for gimmicks like this… especially ones this bad. Give us a really good game that’s fun to play and equitable and we’ll support you. I refuse to support this crap.

Want to bet this game made thousands of dollars? There’s millions of these games and they only need a few whales to be profitable.

Topic: The King of Towers / [BUG] Tavern rewards

Why? It’s answered: the actual chances aren’t 1/10. Same goes for the daily spins: each “slice” looks equal, but the 50gold one is much more likely than the others.

why would giving away a product require the creators permission…

specs to run flash player are here http://www.adobe.com/nz/products/flashplayer/tech-specs.html but realistically if your lagging its ether server delay or that your internet access is bad (network and or wireless)

and yes the developers goal is to make money, god forbid a company aims to make a profit. i highly doubt any of us would work for free

This is absurdly wrong.

Yeah, the list scrolls automatically to the side if you beat a next type of monster. I completely missed the first wipeout as well because I hadn’t noticed!

Topic: The King of Towers / Christmas Level 5 Rewards

I completed the map twice today (as I’ve done the days before) but only received 5 out of 10 stockings. The counter on the map screen says “0 left”, but I’m 100% certain I’ve only gotten 5 total. I never left any creatures through, so it must be a bug.

[edit] On that note: the inventory is VERY bugged. Sometimes I lose stuff from 30minutes ago. Yesterday after reconnecting I suddenly had 8 of those 1energy hams in my Pocket (temp storage), some from the morning. Another time one of the items I enhanced 10 times was suddenly back to lvl 1 and unequipped. The inventory is horribly laggy.

Topic: The King of Towers / [BUG] Letters Bugged

Same goes for the Tavern. You will nearly always get a Rainbow Crystal or Earth Essence, despite the game giving the impression you’d have an equal chance for any item.

Topic: Wartune / Sylph Skills

Hello,

I’m relatively new to Sylphs. I got very lucky on getting a blue Hades Sylph from one of the random chest events and today it finally hit level 55. I’ve been getting skill boxes from the Underground Palace and was finally able to learn something.

I read the warning “will overwrite skill if no empty slots”, but there were two open slots available so I wasn’t worried. Apparently, those slots aren’t actually open slots and my Delphic skill got overwritten by the new skill.

Is there a way to undo this? My Sylph is effectively useless now, as the Delphic is the only skill that does some damage at this point. I feel like the game was very vague with the warning and how it displays slots. I feel like it was reasonable for me to assume that a open but empty slot was in fact an empty, open slot, as opposed to the locked slots.

Any help?

Topic: Wartune / Underground Palace

In some browsers, such as Chrome, you can “fix” this by changing your zoom settings. I use a relatively low resolution, but the exit button becomes visible when I’m at 110% or higher. In Chrome, CTRL+scroll up is the zoom hotkey. Not ideal, but much easier than refreshing or even full screening (the full screen button isn’t even available when I’m in the Underground Palace).

Topic: Wartune / SC event..

I’m a lowby with L26 SE and even I would have preferred gold. :)
Gem packs are nice, but I’m maxed out on L5 gems and have no way of upgrading them further without cashing. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the 50% return because I enjoy clicking Collect and feeling as if I accomplished something, but right now I’m just stocking up on gem packs in the hopes of ever getting some value out of them.

Topic: Wartune / Bugs post 3.1

The “Ask World/Guild” buttons on the “Need help Fishing” event don’t always work. I’ve lost 3 rewards this way, because I simply can’t ask for help (nothing appears in chat for people to click).

Don’t do the daily?

You can also get up to 40 (and more later on) by Fishing. Not sure what level unlocks that though.

Topic: Wartune / Lag Guide

“Flash has memory leak issues that cause lag!”

“Incidentally, whenever a new Wartune patch is introduced, the game lags more!”

Really, stop blaming Flash. Modern browsers have excellent Flash plugins. It’s the game programming that is extremely sloppy. If the server can be crashed simply by having people press Collect Reward too often, that’s… very poor design.

Topic: Wartune / Cannt login(((

There is absolutely no point to giving our IP. That is literally the dumbest thing I’ve read in a while. If R2 has server problems, okay, that sucks, but it’s understandable. If it takes some time to get sorted… well, that sucks, but it’s understandable. But there is absolutely nothing our IP addresses can help them with.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / Suggestions

It would be nice if items we already have (or had, and already counting for Achievements) are highlighted. Now, it’s sometimes very hard to find new pieces of equipment in Loot tables or Craft lists, especially with Craft lists being very chaotic these days.

(Example: if you’ve crafted an entire Hero-At-Arms piece, all lower pieces are highlighted because you already made them once.)

I had some problems with DotD not loading, or not connecting (stuck on “Connecting…” or throwing the “server maintenance” default error). Try resetting your browser to factory settings as well as clearing cache etc.
