Topic: Clicker Heroes / Patch 0.12

I really liked this game. But the latest patch destroyed my save and it won’t load. 61 hero souls gone. Guess its my time to quit? Too bad..
Please let me know when this game comes out without saves getting corrupted (or whatever is the problem) or destroyed. I’d love to retry sometime.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

So when is the “visit a friend then have your workstations not working”-bug ever going to be resolved? It’s really annoying…

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

I havent upgraded my worktable nor made any changes to my fine cutting table; however since i started the day i cant use either Leatherworker/Tinkerer to level up. Why? Because of the “you dont have this table”-bug. Both of them however are far higher level then required.
Again please fix it. I sent in a bug report more then a week ago since my Tinkerer couldn’t be leveled because of this and now my leatherworker too….

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Bug Reports and Issues

Forgot to report another bug; since upgrading my shop 32 times (the last 500k expansion) the items in the shop become visually overlapping with the foreground making it look very weird.
Icons like +1 item or -1 resource seem to not show up at all times.

Recipes / Workstations become unavailable at random times since recently. When i restart the game sometimes it seems fixed but other times the bug stays.
For instance; i have a worktable 3-III and when i employ my Tinkerer i could make 3 or 4 low level guns and then all of the sudden it says i need a 2-III table and i dont have one. On reboot it fixes itself sometimes or on re-employing. But nonetheless it’s a strange and frustrating bug. I have workers who’re randomly useless until reboot / end of the day.

Chop a 0 off of the wall upgrades. They cost far too much compared to all the other shop upgrades. Even the second upgrade is far more expensive than any other individual shop upgrade. I don’t mind them being expensive, but they honestly don’t provide that much of an advantage.

It may seem a very expensive investment but in the end i think it’ll pay itself off. No longer will you have to manufacture noob-lvl equipment and can focus on 5+, 10+ and so on.
I also agree with meirb it’s not a necessary upgrade.

I forgot to mention there is a visual (or lag?) bug wich sends you mail but not opening or showing it’s contents. When hovering over it/clicking it says “null”. Upon refreshing the page it’s solved though.

No false advertising, just poor wording. You don’t get x+y special items, but only pay for x-y. The text will be changed with the next update.

Thank you for clearing that up. Though imho the text is still pretty confusing on first glance. But perhaps that’s a strategical move.

25k gold isn’t enough. You need 1k improvement points of every worker before it’s built.

Define `all`.

Did you lose a day? Or simply everything you’ve achieved? If so you should definitely report this at edgebee.com.

Customer: Hey there! I’m looking to buy a pair of shoes and i’ll pay more then the market price!
Shopkeep: Hello. I’m sorry we don’t sell those here, but would you like to buy a coat instead?
Customer: Normally I wouldn’t change my mind, but this is a great deal!

Topic: Battle Dawn / The Battle Dawn Rules

I know of several alliances who annoy me.
Not in trolling, but merely in making my growth slower. This is what good players usually do.
Also, there are players who “annoy” people to force them to relocate. Yes this is annoying, but a very viable tactic aswell.

Maybe you should update the part about “annoying” since it’s not a clear statement.

All else: people, don’t cheat but use boosters instead. They are the legal form of “cheating” .

Just my two cents.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Why are people anoyed over premium?

Originally posted by chippi:

the only thing i dont understand is who those people are who argue pro paying. to those: who are you? are you payed by the developer to bash every1 who doesnt like this new pay-or-suck-strategy? or are you friends/relatives of devs? why is it so strange if someone want to save his money whereever possible? did you ever learn how to handle money? and by now and many frustrated feedbacks from people who tried to get those “free-kreds”, we also know that these free-kreds are just out of arguing about this premium (“stfu and do surveys/watch movies…”) and are not for everyone a real option, cuz these offers are different in every country, and just for many reasons just dont work, are inappropriate (or even worse, i dont know if kong ever checks all theses links and companies behind…) or cant be done so some of us just wont ever get free kreds, or the needed 50kreds. and btw im actually happy that i didnt have to pay for it cuz im now after about 2 days playing done with the main quest and actually nothing is left but grinding in endurance to the max, cuz at a high level endurance-75x mode is the only way to get decent exps and to get some few more levelpoints to the 3 only leftover skills whithout any levelcap. and that gets repetitive over time, if not to say boring. so im glad i didnt pay for it, and there are games on kong which have pay-content too, but which is much more worth spending kreds for (if i had any)!

I’ve been a kongregate member for several years now and i’ve seen so many games come and go…
In the beginning there were only “free” games, those times were the times when flash games became popular because of their simplicity and graphical features wich were, and sometimes still are, just totally awesome.
But as times change and popularity takes over a certain theme, money will always get involved.
Wether it’s in the cost of developing a piece of art (i.e. buying software/tools) or the time spent creating it.

Besides, it’s a boost/extra feature for fans who’d like to donate “Game-In-a-Bottle” in wich we’ll let them continue their work as, when looked at the content, is well worth it. And getting something a little “extra” for it in return is actually quite normal in real life.
For example: if I make a donation to a certain party, let’s say the “Medical Science Fund” they’ll reward me aswell. Even if it’s just as small as a pen, a balloon or a card.

Therefor, please provide me with a valuable argument why it is a big deal.
Because it seems to me you just want to feed your own selfishness at the price of others their hard work.

Topic: Kongregate / Can we make it a rule not to respond to trolls?

There’s one problem: None of you understand what a troll is. A troll around here is anyone who says anything you don’t like. In the rest of the internet where people know what words mean, a troll is someone who “posts inflammatory statements for the purpose of eliciting flames”

You get the difference? If you say something unpopular and idiots go crazy, you’re not trolling. If you do it because that’s the reaction you wanted all along, you’re trolling.

It’s an important distinction because people everywhere are pretty stupid and will have a huge argument over everything. Just look at comments on Youtube: You can post a statement about fluffy bunnies and it manages to turn into an argument about the Iraq war.

Someone posting a load of crap about raping a 14 year old is trolling. Not something I disagree with (Although it still is). And that’s happened, and it got about 30 replies.

Sounds more like an open (vile) discussion to me rather then trolling.

A troll is the bringer of destruction… nahh not really.
Seriously though, a troll is someone who annoys you for an amount of time. Mostly flaming and chatting/posting stuff to upset people.
That’s basically a troll. He can also be a spammer. But mainly he just wants (negative) attention and he laughs when you get angry or upset.

I know all this because I too like to troll people from time to time. Especially to troll a troll.
One advice: Don’t feed a troll. Ignore, troll back or get him banned.

Kelden, you’re absolutely right. Why should we want more competition, right? Especially if you’d add up those boosters with them.

One thing’s bothering me though. Since when are you on the forums? Meddling and conspiring with the newbs these days, eh?

Originally posted by Evan717:

Again, if people need mentors or want to be mentors, send me a message. I currently run this program on the main forums and need more volunteers. Please message me back about this.

Hey Evan,

I’ve played BD for a few months, though I still have a few screenies of me ranking top 5 in about 4 rounds. (Mostly slow-pace)
That said, i’ve also been a mentor for a few middle-class players who, if they play solo, rank about top50.

I would be happy to help out. As long as those players are also motivated to be helped. There’s no use to help someone out who thinks he can manage it own his own.

I had a great teacher once and am willing to share the knowledge.

P.S: Guess who my teacher was?

Regards,
Syph
