Topic: Wartune / Sylph Stat Build

So the class nature has no influence on my stat build? Alright then thanks for your advice.

Topic: Wartune / Sylph Stat Build

I’m an archer and I use gaia. I heard from some saying I should put stats on Strength due to Archer’s PATK nature and some others with INT. Which build is correct? Also, should I place stats on Armour and END too?

I have recharged 500 balens. You could collect the prizes at the Hot Events tab after that.

Topic: Wartune / [Announcement] Emergency Maintenance 2/21 at 02:30 EST

While it is nice of you to inform about the emergency maintenance, I hope that like as of before, a notice on the server chat would announce the time before maintenance officially starts. I also hope that this maintenance actually starts after the BG (q.e. literally 3:30 PM GMT +8) is over as I was in the middle of one when it lagged severely, only to refresh the game and realise the maintenance was in effect, not sure if I lost honour in the process.

Also, this maintenance is some form of self stigmatisation. Not only are many players frustrated due to continuous fixations, but this maintenance is unique as it is fixing only what affluent people could afford. In other words, a majority of people who could not afford Balens in general have to undergo this process which to them, is really impractical. I thank you Wartune for creating this wonderful medium of entertainment but I do hope that at least the players’ opinions could be placed into consideration before performing sporadic actions like these.

Topic: Wartune / Bugs post 2.1

I entered a BG, killed an enemy. But somehow the system didn’t respond despite him being dead hence deciding to refresh. However, despite refreshing a couple of times, it gave me a black screen. I made sure my internet connection was on as well.

Topic: Wartune / New Coming Soon Thread!

I think that non-Vault to Heaven quest is the aforementioned ‘Tiamat Invasion’. From reading it, it can be performed 10 times a day at anytime.

And that Gaia sylph is named after a Goddess of EARTH not electricity.

I suggest r2 get better translators (or hire me LOL).

While I am not saying you’re wrong, I think the translators intended to use Ancient Dragon instead of 麒麟 is because it has no Anglo-phonic equivalent and so dragon is more appealing to Anglophones and occidentals. I could suggest Oriental Chimera but that too would be rather confusing.

If I was to be that meticulous, I could complain about how Gaia and Apollo should not be together as they are asynchronous to the game. Apollo was an Olympian who usurped the Titans, in which Gaia was one of them. I could also state how Sylphs are of Greek but the skills are ‘scribere de latina lingua’. (exempli gratia Jupiter which should be Zeus, and Aquilon should be Boreas et cetera)

But the overall point I’m trying to state is that it is just a game, and while persnickety people tend to be a bit vexed by even the smallest of contexts, the phonology it produces is more appealing to the majority of the audience.

Topic: Wartune / New Years Eve Recharge

Ohhh! I have used that blog once in a while. Yes it is true that the Chinese version has a lot more mediums of entertainment however it does not indicate its maintenance such as bugs is any better than the server we have as of now, which was what got me really interested.

Topic: Wartune / New Years Eve Recharge

timerthy, if your claim is true perhaps you could show me the Wartune blogs (though its probably better off with a PM rather than posting it here publicly)? It is also probably better if it is in Mandarin since it tends to originate more from the actual game source. I could then be able to confirm whether the rumours are genuine.

Topic: Wartune / Worldchamp3 monster damage to wb celebration

From the preceding posts, it is quite prominent that this will turn into a rage thread. In order to prevent further disturbance to other users and players, I’m afraid I would have to lock this. Thank you for your understanding.

Topic: Wartune / New Coming Soon Thread!

Looking at the mounts, I chuckled a bit. The ‘Chocobo’ is actually the Turkey mount in November. Below Red Imperial Steed is the Golden Impala (Yes, that is the mount for the New Year promotion) and beside it is Juvenile Gryphon.

I’ve purchased a Magic Box II and none of them contained a Magic Shard Box. Has anyone obtained it and what is its function?

Topic: Wartune / Amethyst Mine

Not only is there this issue of morale which permeates the atmosphere of the Amethyst Mine, but it appears to me that the system in fact, encourages plundering of amethyst from others, whether it be weak or strong. I remember collecting Amethyst and I noticed a character waiting just before the Dumping Point. I accidentally clicked on the character, but I quickly clicked for my character to move in the reverse direction. However, these sharp reflexes were in vain as somehow the system caused me to return to the camper and I ended up losing Amethyst for that.

I went to the dressing room and found out that there is Wings of Plight. However, I have seen no event whatsoever which allows one to purchase it. It would be very much appreciated if someone could help me with this.

Topic: Wartune / Bugs #2

The audio system for the game is perfectly fine except for two. I no longer hear the music for leveling up or just upon being victorious over a battle. I tried refreshing the game completely and clicking the background music option on and off several times but I still fail to hear it.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / wa2000 or dragunov?

WA2000 is better for killing people in a shorter amount of time. Dragunov is more effective at killing tougher opponents.

On a side note, TDC, pls don’t necro threads thank you ;)

Hey catepillar. I was rather surprised that your post was flagged but it was actually yourself (I’m a forum moderator). If you wanted to remove your posts, you could simply click on ‘Delete Post’ beside your avatar of your post.

Lol… You should stick to moderating your own part of the forums because you clearly do not understand the motivation that cate is trying engender atm.

Could you explain what he and I are missing? That the caterpillar guy is flagging his own post is sort of relevant and interesting.

So cate has quoted an alliance member allegedly lying and slandering him for whatever reasons including raising alliance profile, protecting alliance interests by making it seem like the good guy and generally raising agitprop, cate rose to the bait and posted this for the greater community, unfortunately, he is obviously pissed off that the Kong mods have failed to done anything, so he is experimenting to see if he posts something similarly inflammatory and see whether the Kong leadership are in the alliance pockets (all WBers, and henceforth, moneymakers for Kong). The flag is to make sure a mod sees this and to see how inconsistent they react

Alright, thanks for making it more lucid. It was really perplexing and incomprehensible at first glance :) Man, I haven’t played Tyrant for a while.

Question and concern: How come developers are making high level game design decision? Separation of design and implementation concerns is fundamental to creating software if you want to avoid a situation where every new feature is evaluated on the basis of “Is it easy to code/steal” instead of “Is it good for the software”. Which… should be rather familiar to most CoG players. Beyond any one in-game feature suggestion or change, Boyo needs to spend a little on a dedicated game designer instead of constantly falling back on “The devs get to make all the decisions”. Or heck, not even necessarily a trained game designer, a trained business person who can focus on long-term sustainability of the game instead of the dev’s laser-like focus on squeezing as much cash as possible out of a few major spenders with as little effort as possible before they get driven away and quit.

I hear this from time to time. Things like bugs, or can’t log in, or the details in the game and the like. The thing is, I pretty much know as much as you regular players do. The only reason why I said ‘I could help try to resolve or answer them for you.’ is because I have knowledge on the game and I’ve played this game even before a week of its release date, and so I understand the complaints and the experiences I had in them.

But what I could advise you to do is to ask a person of higher authority than me (such as a regular moderator or an admin). Admins have supreme authority and can have a significant impact in terms of the game itself. But even they can’t ultimately change the primordial elements in the game. I’m sorry couldn’t help you with this problem. However, if you have minor bugs like can’t log in or removing threads, feel free to leave me a shout :)

@Marine: I understand how you feel :( However, it is not nice of you to publicize your inner thoughts to the whole Contract Wars forum. If you have any issues to a particular person, please PM a moderator or an administrator thank you. LOCKED.

teamwork dungeons/abyss.

allow a player to invite another player in to their dungeon/abyss. to join, the invited player must have:

1. a dungeon key or available abyss run;
2. the exact same formation & unit types assigned.

player one now runs the dungeon; player two watches the movement and battles, but does not control anything. each of the new 6 heroes is the combined stat total of p1 & p2 in each formation spot.

Might be easier to implement it in a similar way worldbosses are now, with different lanes. But balance may be a problem, as two top players would have no problems with d12f while 2 weaker players at similar level might still wipe in d11f.

I am in favor of more team pve possibilities, not sure yet what the best implementation would be though.

I do have another suggestion: Regular CoG responses in topics like this, rather than not hearing anything from them for days in a row. Even an acknowledgement that they’ve seen our posts would be an improvement.

Well, I’m not exactly a developer so I can’t ultimately decide what happens to the game. But if you have any questions or concerns I will try to help resolve or answer them for you :)

Topic: General Gaming / Protector Help

Basically I haven’t played Protector in a while because it was too difficult for me, but I decided to play it again because it was relatively entertaining. However, as soon as I completed all easy missions (excluding easy marathon) I got stuck. I searched for walkthroughs but I couldn’t find any. So I have no idea what should be my next step. (The marathon? the medium map? what skill points should I assign?) It would be vey helpful if someone could help me with this thanks.
