You acquired this badge on Feb. 23, 2010.

515,771,294,794 coins in vault. I spent many billions (maybe trillions on mists and dusts by now). I still remember all the fuss when FLY took out RNG. I’m only autoing now, and even with that, I log on about twice a month. lvl 84 at the moment. I’m pretty sure this game will shut down before I level up again.

What’s going on here? Either remove the cap on members or let us kick people out or inactivity will kill this clan (and every clan except hono) as people quit the game.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / The clan to join is Aka Ryu Red clan. Armor Games is joining blue and hunting us.

Wait wait wait… So now it’s wrong to promote a certain clan over others? This happens in literally every game that has a “clan” feature. In fact, competition to promote clans here are relatively tame here compared to that in other games. Hell, even DoTD guilds spend more time recruiting people than the clans do here.

I really don’t understand what exactly Fate did to offend you here. All he did was to put out several points to encourage new players to join ryu. Isn’t that exactly what you did in this post?

And from the looks of it, Armorgames is promoting the blue clan the same way. So, if Fate promotes red clan here, he is “wrong” and “immature?” Now, how does this make any sense?

Promoting groups happens in every game. It’s just that way, and there’s nothing wrong with it.

This person understands.

No matter how hard Fate and others promote red, the choice is always in the hands of the player who is choosing to join. Fate isn’t hacking or threatening those who don’t join red, and as long as he isn’t doing that, there is nothing wrong.

Now, about the war. Even if a player joins red, that player is under absolutely no obligation to participate in the war. So, promoting this clan isn’t equivalent forcing players to “join in a un-official and un-mentioned game war between the sites” Also, about dominance. Dominance is fun, as long as it doesn’t become so overwhelming that it kills everyone elsen’s fun. And I doubt red has such a capacity. In other games, it’s always breaking news (and a cause for celebration) when a dominant faction or guild gets kicked out of their spot. So, dominance isn’t always a bad thing. And plus, it’s somewhat fun to dominate (again, not too much though). So, I ask you again, what exactly did Fate do to offend you? I don’t see anything he said that would provoke such an inflammatory response.

@Saskia Congrats on taking the castle at 15,61! Now, Vainglory is actually right when he says there’s usually a competition between AG and Kong in pretty much every game that has cross platforms on these sites. It’s due to a rivalry between the sites that goes back as long as I can remember. This means that there will be intense battles between blue and red in the future (though no official war) and that truces may be somewhat harder to enforce. As long as it doesn’t turn into a game of annihilating the other clan and remains a friendly (though fierce) competition. I won’t have too much of a problem. Like iostiogic said: “It’s fun to have something to fight for” and intense fights are fun to watch.
Lastly, I was probably the one responsible for your 2 troop victory :) I pulled an attack on the castle in the last 20 seconds. It was fun, even if I fell short.
I look forward to playing with your clan in the future. Best of luck to Aoi!

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / State of the Clan War

That’s just how these games are. Players are competitive and groups of players will seek to dominate because it’s competitive. Moreover, players have fun and get a certain satisfaction when they play (as long as they’re not too far ahead).

You see this all the time with factions and guilds in other games (Ex. Fairytails in Wartoon, Better World and Black Ops in Tyrant, the seven elite guilds in Dream World).

So, would anyone really need a motive for war? Not really. But players still wage war in game because it’s fun and competitive, and that’s precisely what games are supposes to do.

The only difference between other MMOs and this one in terms of dominating groups/factions is that this game has 4 giant conglomerate factions, so players from a site would all join up to compete with players from other sites in the absence of a fragmented faction system present in most other MMOs.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / State of the Clan War

In order to dominate, we’ll need more players. If this game could get as large a base as Tyrant or BYM back in their days, we’d have no problem crushing the competition.

But the forums here are barely alive from what I see.

Ah, that explains it. (Only level 3 light stance right now)

So I guess light stance isn’t as useful as balanced or heavy in PVE

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Kong Players: Basics and World Battle

How do I exactly get enough attack to run light stance effectively. I maxed attack and have a dragon blade but still hit only 2-3 on bandits my level.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Cash Calculation Differeces Between Main Site and Kongregate

I recently imported my file from the main site to kong. After that, my earnings seemed to slow down a lot on kong (the file that I imported). To check this, I ran a test. I closed both tabs and reopened them at pretty much the same time (maybe 20 seconds apart).
The main site version earned 56 quattorsexgintillion
The kong version only earned 1.2 tresexgintillion

Another thing that I noticed was that when importing on the main site, the stats screen exited out automatically, this was not the case when importing on the kong version.

I suspect that either cash calculations are getting messed up or that files are getting corrupted on importation to kong.

And since the moon update hasn’t launched on the main site, I can’t be sure if the new update is causing this or not.

Not sure if it confirms it or not, but yeah, my enchants got slightly better after I invested in potion efficiency.

I can confirm that.

Now for the shady merchant.
Appears after the second run, with an obsidian shield
After third run with emerald boots
After fourth run with wolf gloves
After fifth run with eagle’s talon
After six run with pixie pants
After seventh run with regeneration ring
After eighth run, he has nothing and says that the cave is getting too dangerous
He disappears after the next run.

Also MSGSteve, the Katana is an artifact.

Hey Capitalists!

One last update before the weekend. We’ve rolled out the other half of the latest upgrades and achievements. This should help everyone with Surge hangover!

Please note: the latest upgrades won’t quite reach the very end of the achievements, so expect another update soon. We weren’t completely pleased with the balancing of the end-end stuff, so we’re going to tweak it a bit more.

We also did some more bug fixes, and improvements, but it’s mostly back-end stuff. Let us know if you encounter any issues or bugs.

Have a great weekend, and thanks for your continued interest in Capitalism!

Now, it looks like they got sidetracked fixing the Unity crashing bug. Just be patient.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Crashing

Whenever I click the picture at the top left corner, my laptop (Windows 7) starts going haywire. the mouse disappears, the entire screen goes dark, (except for menu at the bottom) and my system crashes.
I know that this doesn’t happen on every computer because I tried this on another computer and nothing went wrong. However, it seems to be a problem on mine.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Turning 300 missions into 304 missions isn’t as engaging for new players as making a temporary limited time event that’s accessible for early players.

So… bait and switch?

This style of event engages new players quite a lot more than side missions. Is that a bait and switch?

The problem I see with the event as a way to engage new players is that most new players would not want to return to their computers every hour and 40 minutes to grind for this event if they don’t even know much about the game yet. (correct me if I’m wrong, but I know I certainly wouldn’t)
they’d also probably get discouraged at the slow rate of gaining points. (assuming 3 points for every 10 energy as it has always been)
most new players wouldn’t do to well in tournies so that’s out of the question.
So the conclusion is that I support Sean’s argument to turn it into side missions.

Topic: Dream World / Official Suggestions Thread

About the coin loss on death thing, that idea wouldn’t exactly be beneficial because for example, if you store you coins before you fight a normal mob. (which you shouldn’t because mobs are so easy anyway) you still get your “healing” coins deducted from your reward for defeating the mob.
