Topic: Galaxy Online / Exodus doesn't provide bonus to shield negation

I tried running some tests too, just to confirm. I compared Exodus-II with Erotes-III. I adjusted modules to get their agility and defense to be very close. With 10 EOS-I, they should negate 580 and 380 per ship, a 50% difference. Some experimentation showed the difference was just under 10%. That 10% might just be due to slight differences in agility and defense, don’t know. The shields were definitely not getting a +20.

Thanks for the clarification.

I chuckled at that destroying the “balance of the game.”

Going to go CG my 150 chart surplus, cheers!

Topic: Galaxy Online / Wiki questions

I always assumed the wiki was community-run. I’m not sure IGG helps update it at all.

The percentages posted were supposedly from information gathered from the old IGG forums and perusing the game files.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Raid Limit

Hey IGG_Games,

Great job on the 28th Maintenance. Increasing the Champ window is a smashing idea.

Did y’all have a chance to check out the Raid limit bug? It is still not being reset every raid window, as you said that it should. Instead, the raid limits are only reset once a day. So end-gamers that accumulate more than 3 raid charts per day have them just pile up. I’m now up to 132 charts.

Thanks you for your consideration.

Hi, IGG_Games,

Thanks for publishing the Champions feature, it is quite fun.

Have you considers any solutions to this bug? Either remove the raid limit OR make the raid limit reset every period instead of just once a day. I’m up to 127 charts now, and got some new charts from the Explorer event today.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Raid Limit

After the recent release, this bug is still causes issues with completing raids. The counter is reset daily instead of reset for every raid window.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Raid Limit

Thanks for your consideration IGG, the other posters are right, it is currently restricted as 3 per day not 3 per timeslot, as you guys intended. So I guess this turns out to be more of a bug report than a feature request. If I could do 9 raids a day that would be sufficient to burn through my supply.

Space raid charts. Are there other charts in this game? They are called “Left Ruins Chart-I”, “Right Ruins Chart-II”, etc.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Raid Limit

IGG, please consider increasing the daily limit of 3 raids. My charts are stacking up, I have a total of 103 charts sitting in my inventory. Even if I do 3 a day it hardly matters, the pile still grows from trials every other day and now constellation prizes.

There are already a time limits imposed on raids, a hard limit on raid attempts may not be necessary.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Galaxy Championships Preview I

How many fleets can a player use? Will it be 4 fleets like League is now?

Are you sure about expending He3? Four fleets of full of He3 could top 10 million rez, and since it is lost you should only fill it partially. But then your opponent could win just by tanking and running down your He3. Anyways, how would we reload He3 between bouts? Personally, I’d much prefer a reasonable gold entry fee, like League. That way the costs are fixed and you’ll know you have enough beforehand to complete all the rounds.

How are draws handled?

Topic: Galaxy Online / Petition thing for longer chat messages!

Do it! The most painful aspect is that 90% of the time when I hit the limit I only need to type one more word.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Feature Suggestion

It should probably work like it does in Arena, where both parties have to surrender and it counts as a draw for both. Instead of surrender I would call it “request a draw”.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Important mail fixes?

IGG – please take note that system generated messages contain spaces. User produced messages cannot. Just do show you what that would look like:
RestrictedInstanceRewards

Yet another mail issue that is just absurd – I wrote a nicely crafted message around 1000 characters and hit [Send]. The mail client, as it always does, said that the message was successfully sent. Only to find out later that the message was truncated around 500 characters. How complicated would it be to add a character limit to the message composition box? Or, better yet, allow more than 500 characters in a message?

Topic: Galaxy Online / Important mail fixes?

There was supposed to be an update a few days ago to support special characters in the in-game mail:
http://www.kongregate.com/forums/202-galaxy-online/topics/313570-maintenance-and-content-update

I tried and the question mark (?) now goes through just fine, expanding our expression capabilities to include queries. But the humble apostrophe (’) still does not seem to work.

Also, it wasn’t on the list of things to fix, but… you can enter spaces into the subject field which causes the mail to not be sent.

Since one of the first quests is to send mail, this could be very confusing for new players since any of these problems will cause the mail quest to not be completed (from my own testing.)

Topic: Galaxy Online / Prepare to Team Up as Space Raiders!

I’m pretty sure anyone completing a raid will simply have their alt corp immediately send a single Weikes to intercept. Then they get a free ride home. Are you implementing some mechanism to avoid this? For example, in League where you can’t see exactly who you going up against.

What happens in the case of a draw during interception?

How many times can you intercept in a day? Can you do multiple at the same time?

I have to agree too. I can’t believe Kong would even allow this to happen on their site. Ratings should just be ratings, no strings attached.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Drop Rate

I’ve stacked 32 instance boxes before opening them, I definitely got gold/he3 from the first 22. Pretty sure I got BPs too. Sounds like you just had some terrible luck there Chanzu. If you play long enough it is bound to happen.

Topic: Galaxy Online / 5* Game? Fix some simple issues

IGG would like this game to be ranked 4.1. I think it is a splendid game, they clearly put a lot of work into it. They deserve an exceptional score. Or do they? There are some glaring usability issues in the game that I think need to be addressed before it is ranked above 4 stars.

For example:
1) When designing a ship you can put spaces into the input box and save the design. But the design actually just goes poof. No indication that there is a name validation issue, and no input mask to prevent invalid characters. There is no excuse for this result. Input validation is Flash programming 101. I know, I’ve done Flash programming since 2000.

2) When sending a Mail to another player you cannot use spaces in the subject. No indication that this is so. Instead, the server just eats it. I imagine the message is sweet and tart on its tongue.

3) When sending a Mail to another player you cannot use most punctuation such as an apostrophe. There is no indication that this is so. In fact, it pops up a “Mail sent successfully!” message, falsely causing the user to believe that the message was sent and received.

Don’t let a lack of basic usability cripple such an excellent game. Fix these issues please, then we’ll talk about giving you a 4.1 score.
