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.

I’ve been using this nick since 2003 (so 11 years), but I’ve been posting on the kong forums and the RoM forums longer than you! :P

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?

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

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.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Fighting over cards!

    Game has a bit too much randomness for betting to be a wise idea. Could work in an equalizer type setting though, or some other way in which crits and blocks would be nulled.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / [TO deVS] caps are bad, let us level up

    Just a tiny bit away from hitting 60 myself. Caps bother me in most games, but in this game it doesn’t really matter since there are no skill or stat points gained, just +1 hp for every two levels. Maybe I’ll be whistling a different tune in a week from now, though.

    As has been said earlier, 1.5 will come with a cap increase to 70. We’re probably like 3 months out from that.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Star Crossed Valentines

    It’s cool that you’ve decided to bring them back as a weekend event, but when are they going to be available as a ‘quest’ event? Just about every other event card that has an epic version has showed up as an event quest reward, but strangely not this one.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Fix Skill Packs.

    They can’t make it class specific, or everyone would change to ranger or mage before buying the VIP 7 packs; not doing so would either be stupid or wasteful. I would agree with making them cost 5k, though.

    Topic: Rise of Mythos / Why defending city defense?

    Originally posted by MitchellF17:

    How about we just get rid of the City Defense thing. Yeah sure it gives us more Crystals in our taxes, but those could EASILY be distributed through other means. If I wanted to play a game that had the defense strategy to it, then I would have played that instead of picking one that didn’t. I just don’t see the point in it at all and overall think that it is completely stupid.

    You can put up your defenses and forget about them, and collect your free extra tax daily. To get your +3 or whatever activity from a siege, just enter one and surrender right away. That way you can gain most of the benefits without having to think too hard.
