Topic: Mech Conquest / Suggestions Thread.

Thanks for the advice asanta! I’ll be sure to try that. I know I tried disassembling one mech before and it didn’t have any effect, but maybe I did it after pairing or something.
However the problem does still remain and should definitely be looked at, especially since it’s pushed a few new players away. I do hope something gets worked out.

Just tested and this is a valid solution for dealing with the battle matcher. It also seems to work if you make the crappiest mech you can then go back and change all it’s parts out, the lower your mech score the lower your opponent’s will be.

As a suggestion I think a good way to combat people abusing this in the future would be to reward a number of tokens based on the opponent’s mech power relative to your own, and also give a list of opponents to choose from. Ie: I have 80 power and a list of 3 opponents with powers of 20, 70, and 100. Obviously the 20 power wouldn’t stand a chance so they’re only worth 1token, the 70 could put up quite a fight so maybe 2 tokens, and the 100 would be tough so 3 tokens. Again that’s just an example and it’s only a suggestion there are many ways this could be applied unless the developers already have better plans.

The Battle Matching System- I think this is in need of urgent attention, I’ve seen it make a few newcomers immediately quit. As of typing this my mech power is 81. When my win streak is reset my first opponent is always a 13power, no problems there. Then my 2nd opponent in the streak is always close to my power (70-90); sometimes a problem but still fair I guess. The real problem is when it gets to the 3rd opponent in the win streak, this is when the battle match just goes full blown stupid. It can be anywhere from a 100 power opponent to a 400+ power person. This problem has been going on pretty much since I started, it’s just the opponents get higher as I get more power. This makes it impossible to get any hopes of a win streak for extra tokens.

The shuffle button as mentioned before also ties into this. For some reason shuffling always makes the opponent harder, ie: I get a 130 opponent (obviously too tough for me) so I shuffle and it skyrockets up to a 210 opponent (at this point it’s impossible for me to win) so I shuffle a 3rd time and get a 400+ opponent. This situation has happened to me at least a dozen times, rarely does it go down and even when it does go down it only goes down to 100-200 power opponents. I’ve talked to other people and they’ve shared similar stories on both these topics.

I really like this game and have great expectations for it, but as it is now it’s very frustrating and really makes me wanna quit because I can’t really get anywhere. I look forward to future updates and to see this game become much greater than it is.

Funny enough on the topic of Farmville and Zynga just last night I was playing Infectonator 2 and I scrolled down to see and advertisement for Farmville 2 with Zynga’s logo slapped on the side. So they sure as hell aren’t dead yet.

I’m not trying to come on here to start a fight or nothing but Dawn of the Dragons is by far not pay to win. Why? First of all I’ve never spent a penny on it and I’m lvl 200+ and I smoke paying players all the time. Second: This was stated on the forum by the devs a long time ago, 4/5 of the top players are free players. Third: You can earn the premium money in game, without paying a single penny. Thats right! you can get planet coins without paying! However unlike some games(IE:Tyrant) its not at an unrealistic rate. Now I’m not saying it’s the best game ever. It is still like reading a picture book, so if that’s not your thing then so be it. And yes it does also feature the oh so dreaded energy/stamina/honor bar system. However there’s ways to make your bars bigger, once you get to about lvl 100 you can play for about an hour and every level more is even more play time.
Also now that Z has mentioned it I have noticed a large decrease in single player games. So I guess maybe that’s where all our attention should be. Just need to focus on getting more single player devs, and for people who have a bit of loose change it’s never a bad idea to tip them, after all Kong has a “tip jar” feature right next to the game window. Nothing wrong with supporting your favorite devs and it will encourage them to keep doing what they’re doing! Once again just my 2 cents on the subject at hand.

First of all I died laughing at whoever said Tyrant didn’t require you to pay to be the best…that’s the silliest load of crap I’ve heard in weeks, but I thank you for that laugh.
Also adding to the Zynga and doing this for profit thing, I remember a few years back I had heard mention that Zynga was making hundreds of thousands in USD monthly from their crappy cookie cutter games on Facebook. I also know that their income has more than doubled as well as their number of crappy games. Unfortunately…this insult to gaming has become a billion dollar business, and since worldwide economy is in the toilet it’s probably not going to stop.
Further adding to the badges I do quite dislike P2W games being badged because I dread the days when they become the daily badge(although maybe they never will, which would be awesome). I feel obligated to play on Kong for rewards since Gamestop bought this site out since it seems they have a bit of a Monopoly on video game sales in my State, therefore it’s the only physical place I can get copies of games, and playing on Kong gives me bonuses to PowerUp rewards.
But really I do miss the old days when I first came here…very few mmos and all single player flash games, and many of the best the internet had to offer at that. I will always be a member of Kong but I will always shed a tear every time I see that front page smothered in P2W games. Sorry that I went a bit off topic there but my 2cents to my feelings on “mmos” of Kong.
