Topic: War of Omens / Most OP cards?

Originally posted by Naliel:

Just thought I’d chime in: The hero Sister Ysadora is terribly overpowered. All she has to do is pile up a bunch of food (which is extremely easy with Vespitole) and then kill your allies/your character by just eating it all. How does it even compare to poor Mogesh’s ability? It’s so broken it’s not even funny.

She needs to be fed for her ability to do anything. Comparing her to Sofocatro (1 skull per turn) deck, she has less damage potential because she has to kill every ally before attacking a hero (assuming you can produce food roughly as quickly as you can produce skulls) and she doesn’t produce any of her own to feed herself so she’s a slower starter in terms of keeping enemy populations down. Conversely she should be able to gain quite a bit of HP through the feeding, which would let her have more longevity or maybe not even need much/any protection. I would say she has potential to be strong, but her power isn’t far above other heroes’.

Hey how about you stick to the topic of the thread? If you are going to whiteknight me use private message, or would you like me to post this same thread on different account? I complain on things that needs to be fixed, devs tend not to slack off if you show them you’re unhappy. Please tell me you dont creep into everyones posts on every thread weirdo

Ah, continuing the trend I see. No, I don’t normally check people’s post histories, but your whole topic just screamed of “this guy wants something to complain about” and so I was curious to see if that’s really what you’re about. And that’s exactly what you’re about.

The thing about the cards here is the devs are constantly re-working the ones that they feel are either OP or make players play in ways that are deemed problematic. I think I’ve seen them go through like three to four changes to a single card over a period of a month. Your post only encourages others to complain rather than talk about what cards could use some re-working. You have a problem, and I hope you’ll either grow out of it or somebody will give you a wake-up call one day.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [petition] 4v4 Trading

I tried to read this thread, but after a while there was just too much nonsense. Let’s look at this from a legal perspective: what was the intent of the 4v4 event when it was designed? What would the developers most reasonably hoped to accomplish by rewarding cp for players participating in 4v4 matches during a set time? I think it’s clear that they didn’t want players endlessly matching against another group and taking it in turns to surrender immediately just to do it over again for as much as 2 hours at a time? What they most likely wanted was to encourage players to play with their guilds and participate in 4v4 battles, and not 4v4 surrender marathons. Taking that into consideration, 4v4 surrendering is an exploitation of the event in order to achieve undeserved compensation. Therefore, it is wrong to participate in mass 4v4 surrendering during the event.

Still, the implementation of the event itself is flawed, so the fault does not entirely rest with the players taking advantage of it. There should be something set in place to discourage this obvious type of exploitation. Easiest way I can think of would be requiring a match to last at least three minutes before awarding points, but there are probably other solutions that might be even better. Saying this is probably useless though, gamefuse has no actual control over what new content, features, or systems are added into the game because they’re just a publisher that does localization/“support”, and not a developer.

Topic: War of Omens / BUG: Campaign Experience Not Registering

On the subject of campaign bugs, I just started chapter 2 on journeyman and on my opponent’s first turn he suddenly registered negative magic at the very start, and proceeded to instakill me without having played any cards. The game doesn’t have an energy system and it was the first match so it wasn’t any real loss, but in general this seems like a serious issue.

After a little more investigating, the difficulty doesn’t seem to matter, Daru just always somehow has (at least?) 20 magic to use to kill you straight away at the start of the turn. It’s impossible to progress in chapter 2 at the moment.

edit: a little more investigating. He earns a free 20 magic per turn. It’s possible to survive one turn by feeding, but no more than that. It seems that it’s his hero ability of being able to play two races of cards that ‘triggers’ and gives the 20 magic to him.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Unleash the Wind

So when can players expect to be able to get these rune formulas themselves without buying gold? Or is that just not in the cards?

(Unless it’s dropping from the red dragon boss; I didn’t check, but I doubt it is)

I find this hard to believe, since you’ve admitted to losing 20 consecutive pvp matches.

That’s Hotshot2012, someone totally different from myself. I don’t remember losing more than 4 consecutive pvp matches, ever.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / GIVE THEM THE HORNS

Publishers really should start launching events at 11:59pm, so that they don’t cause confusion to their playerbase or screw up and announce the times wrong.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / My PVP suggestions

A lot of people are confusing me for you, is there any chance you could edit something in to your original post to express that we are not, in fact, the same person? My guildies have given me some grief about it, thinking that I lost 20 matches in a row and went to the forums to complain about it. I would be grateful if you could clear up the confusion a little.

Stormshade, how about escalating the support team so that they can actually look at and answer tickets within a week of their posting for all your players?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / A Wolf in Ram’s Clothing

I don’t know if anybody’s still looking at this topic, but those who bought on Sunday and got screwed, submit a ticket if you haven’t done so already. Potential bonus tip, be angry and express feeling cheated, but don’t be a dick. I had the very same issue a few months ago with the +2hp ring, and about three weeks after I submitted a ticket, they got around to resolving the issue and gave me my ring (and the 50 gold or w/e).

Topic: Rise of Mythos / No Devs, Just No...

Dear community manager or other employee who might accidentally be reading this thread,

For something as egregious as failing to have a showdown, you should include something serious in a compensation package even when it has to be sent to the entire server. I propose you put a Legendary Gem in them in the future if you ever screw this up again, and send out a legendary gem now as additional compensation. A legendary gem is nice in that it won’t unbalance the game’s reward structure for low level players (basically one guaranteed gear upgrade if they choose to use it early on), and will actually provide high level players that donated tons of silver and sometimes gold with something of value that actually says “we’re sorry” rather than a few hours’ worth of crystals and 2 and a half days’ worth of silver donations (out of 7 per week). Sure, there will be people who spent more than that cost on gold donations, but those along with players who have zero desire for legendary gems will be in the vast minority (and there’s always future use; I’m sure nobody on our server has 4x lvl 20 upgrade gear).

So yeah, tl;dr: show us you’re sorry, give out a Legendary Gem as compensation. It won’t unbalance the game, and might appease your dedicated playerbase. Better than this crap of a package anyway.

Grimbone does look out-of-place in that list, eh? I think that 1/21 undead knight thing is what’s actually supposed to be up in the shop, though that card is entirely useless outside of the 4v4 environment, I figure.

-And gamefuse is quiet as ever

Yup, I’m feeling pretty appreciated. Our new friend Stormshade is silent as the grave, in line with pretty much all other f2p community managers ever.

What I want to know is how do they literally screw this event up EVERY TIME the have it running. On this run they actually screwed up twice with just a single event.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [to devs] you own me a tower ticket

I’m pretty sure Gamefuse does not make ANY of their own cards (or anything else), they just commission the Chinese developers to make them for Gamefuse. Gamefuse is the U.S. publisher and just handles translation/hosting/support/getting teh moniez. Their business relationship is ongoing, or else how would we ever get the new updates?

They only owe you a tower ticket if you buy one and they don’t give it to you. Still, we all would like them to restore disconnected sessions for the tower.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / MASTER PACKS ONLY FOR VIP

VIP 3 is like $35 to $40. If you play for a year, that’s not an unreasonable price to pay. Then you can just buy more packs with gems in the future, if you really want to buy packs.

  • FREE? THIS CAN BE MINE FOR FREE? You mean, IF i pay $200 for a set of pixels i can have it. Geesus christ. The godlike is OVER $800!!!!
    Are you fucking kidding me? The one person that buys this, is a fucking idiot and should kill himself so his relatives can claim his vast fortune and spend it more responsibly.

    I understand not wanting to do the same things with money as some of the players here seem to do, but you need to sit your poor ass down. I agree that the price for these promos is completely out-of-this-world, and that charging that much for an online card should be some kind of criminal offense, but back up off the people who choose to spend that money anyway. Some people spend thousands customizing their cars, or their RC boats, or on golf implements that really don’t do them any real good, and now there are companies that are capitalizing on the ‘hobby money’ online. By all means, give the company shit for asking for ~$800 to get a single card (two cards since they get the leg too), but don’t say such ignorantly hateful things about people with different interests and financial situations than yourself.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Quest Events (angel)

    I would really prefer they distribute the points as well, as someone affected by the issue once again. It would be the more fair solution. I’m guessing there’s difficulties in doing that on a technical level, however, which is why they went with the tower reset option.

    Another idea would be to quickly reset the tower for everyone before people have gone too far ahead. That would catch everyone affected by the issue while probably having a low impact on those who weren’t.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Quest Events (angel)

    Well the angel event is in fact back. I noticed the quest popup, but figured it must be a mistake, since the event wasn’t there and I wasn’t getting any points. Fast forward to me logging in just now, and of course the event has returned and I’m on floor 46 without any points. Considering what a big shitstorm this issue was last time with the tower reset/new event thing, how is it that they made the same mistake again?

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Survey Reward Bug

    Originally posted by fba827:

    I did not either. But, if it’s the same survey I took, it talked about how they are using the feedback to better shape their next game or something like that. Nor was there any talk of when the reward would be received or what form it would take. Therefore I assumed (rightly or wrongly) that the reward would be something related to their next game/some incentive to sign up and play that next thing when it’s ready.

    That wouldn’t be a reward, that would be an advertisement to get you into a different game.
