We found the place where it was still rewarding snow gem fragments and had them removed. No one should be getting any more of these now. Sorry for the delay on resolving this issue.

The snow gem fragment should have been disabled yesterday. If you are still getting them today, please send us a bug report with where they are still being dropped. Thanks!

Topic: Time World / Bugs and Glitches

There are many reasons why you can’t logging but everyone else is not seeing the problem. As stated the game popup dialog, it cannot connect to our server via port 6100 fro your location. Common reasons include firewall setting changes, flashblock or similar browser setting preventing communication on that port, or just poor internet connectivity from your location to our server. One thing I heard that worked before if you are using ISP with cached routes, is to shutdown your router for 15 minutes and hope it connects via a different route after you turn back the router on.

Yeah, didn’t get res rewards for beating last boss more than once, didn’t get gift box, didn’t get drop item (but, in that case, that might have been because it was last boss chapter when you did it;)). I should feel lucky I guess…

Edit: got rewards after doing a christmas gem raid… lol, but no gift box and no full ap refill even though I got the +2aps on max >.<

Sorry for all the confusion on this. You should get the chapter 19 gift box the next time you login.

Thanks for the reports. The stuck issue should be fixed now. Battleship is used there as generic term. The training mode is intended to stay at 60 (only attacking others raised to 100).

The next expansion is still currently planned for February (probably late February). There will be the usual new chapter, increase in level caps (buildings, tech, hero, equipment), new WoH Arena rewards, and a mini-game with free rewards that is currently being worked on.

Topic: Time World / It's time for a round of bannings.

When reported and verified, we usually clear the ranking and remove any reward won for arena collusion as a first warning. On second offense colluding accounts will be suspended.

Topic: Time World / Hey playmage, you remember when you said galaxy insults were banned?

While the current offending galaxy name only closely resemble the previous one, those who have been following along this issue may still be able to interpret the meaning of the offending galaxy names. I am giving galaxy leaders that set the “OakyElm ZABISH” galaxy name another 24 hours to change their galaxy name to a normal galaxy name that doesn’t sound like or remember attack on any of our veteran players. Those who fail to comply may receive temporary IP blocks or more severe resolution when we force change the names.

Topic: Time World / Galaxy Names Targeting Players

Please do not name your galaxy to intentionally target and slander specific player or entity, regardless of the intention or reason. If reported, any galaxy name that remain this way after 24 hours may be force changed, with various possible in-game punishment issued to the player that named the galaxy.

I am not sure why you are experiencing as things seem to be fine with your account and the server. Please first check if you are not blocking the site with flash block and give necessary permissions to render the game iframe (may need to add exceptions as it’s a 3rd party iFrame URL). if that doesn’t help, try restarting your router but leave it turned off for few minutes before turning it back on.

Topic: Time World / Have we seen our last update for TW?

Originally posted by EvilGM:

I only ask because as I look around, the numbers on the in-game chats are pretty small. I think that our active user base is below 100 people, which is pretty darn small…

We actually have over 1000 active players in the game with approximately 75% logging in everyday, obviously not logging in at the same time. Even the logged in players don’t stay in kong’s game chat as some open multiple games or skip the kong frame all-together. Time World is still our highest revenue driver on Kongregate. The next update will probably not happen this calendar year due to other planned projects and staffing changes, but I will post more information or date for the plans for the next update probably in the next couple months when it gets planned and scheduled.

You expect us to take your support request seriously based on all the made up crap you posted on the forum in the past?

Topic: Time World / Bugs and Glitches

We are looking into cause of a bug that’s causing some players occasionally falling out of the weekly ranking, which has been eluding us for some time and we still do not know the cause. We will try to get this issue properly fixed for the next update/patch. In the meantime, if you don’t make into the top ranking even though you should, you can send us a bug report along with a screenshot showing your total power and army strength and the count-down timer (preferably no less than 5 minutes past the weekly ranking reset), and we will manually credit you the crystal rewards.

We will look into the slowness issue.

Update: We weren’t able to find the exact cause of the lag you guys described, but we went though a server maintenance earlier and hopefully that will help clear the issue. Please private message me if the problem still persists.

Or more specifically..


If I hover over my hero’s restat button for war, it displays:

589 + 306(equip) = 895


If I equip a spirit with 61 war it shows:

650 + 306(equip) = 956


With the 61 war spirit equiped, it should show:

589 + 367(equip) = 956

Thanks for the clarification, this display issue has been fixed. (reloading the game maybe required to pickup the fix).

trying to do certain things in the game causes severe lag spikes. viewing any planet, assignging different ships to heroes, initial loadup of the game. all of these take 3-5 minutes of lagging to accomplish 1 time.

it started last night before midnight server time. it is still happening at this time too.

Server is not showing any issues, so this sounds like a poor connection to the server. You can try resetting your router if the problem persists.

the chat is loading but the game is not

Sorry for the late reply for this issue from 3 days ago, but I want to make it clear that it was Kongregate authentication server outage during that 3-hour period which affected all server based games. There was nothing we could have done other than waiting for Kongregate issue to be fixed, as we can’t blindly let players into the game without authenticating them with Kongregate.

Okay so this is happening more and more frequently. Like, 75% of the time frequently. Clearing my cache actually made it worse……

I know I am not the only one who is having this problem, so some sort of response would be appreciated.

Actually it’s the first time we heard of such issue and none of us here can reproduce it. Please either clear your entire cache history and restart the browser immediately, or try another browser.

I have no clue what you mean, but things are stacking properly.

Originally posted by playmage:

Alston has been fixed, sorry for the issue. Those who lost AP and need them back, please send me your in-game name and number of AP lost due to disconnect, and I will try to restore them in the next 24 hours or so.

We have now finished restoring AP for those affected and reported the issue to me via private message. Thanks for everyone’s patience.
