Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The capital V in the title?

Originally posted by Bassplayer19:

Venture capital refers to startup money given to a business.

Also, in economics, the people who give the venture capital to a new business are called… Angel Investors.

More pertinently, a Venture Capitalist is someone who invests their funds into a business with the hopes of getting a return on his or her investment.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Do treasure chests "spawn" while in offline mode

My guess is no, but I don’t have any proof to back that up. I just assume they’d make the offline mode gains calculation as simple as possible, ignoring chests or any other chance variables. My guess would be that it ignores the %chance to get 10x gold too, or whatever that one ancient was. Then again this is me assuming they were lazy or inconsiderate with the design, and it’s possible I’m wrong.

iirc, someone cracked the code and the odds of getting a treasure chest as well as the extra gain was calculated into raw gold per/time ratio that was added unto the DPS*highest zone calculation to get the total offline gain, but i don’t know of mimzee and dora have an effect or if it’s only the base odds and extra gain that’s calculated.

Your both wrong, while your not playing chance to get a treasure chest and/or 10x gold are just 4x lower… so you can still get them its just really rare and doesn’t even make that much of a difference

Originally posted by Draelokk:

as the title says do you get the chance on chest spawns plus the bonus gold from them while the window is closed, so basically does mimzee and dora actually give an effect with the window closed?

The answer is… YES they do help (sortof)

I’m curious, what makes you say the chances are 4x lower? I can’t think of any logical reason for that being the way it works. Do you have any source for this claim?

Also “you’re” is a contraction of “you are”. “Your” refers to the subject possessing something. Like “your underwear” or “your mother’s basement” :D

Not only. I checked that powersurge crashes idle game too, so it’s most like every skill = end of being idle. That’s major thing to repair because skills are useless that way

Power surge doesn’t crash idle DPS boost for me. Neither do any other skills that don’t themselves click or cause me to start clicking.

Yeah, screw these guys for forcing you to read their posts and do math rather than letting you play the game in peace!

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / My game buged out.. Help

That’s the error message that usually tells you that something is frozen/unresponsive. Waiting a while tends to make that message go away on its own, but maybe that hasn’t been the case for the OP.

They said it’ll be in 2-3 weeks after the last update. You guys are ravenous.

edit: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2606-adventure-capitalist/topics/429255-ad-cap-tips-and-faq?page=2#posts-8437551

Apparently “within the next couple of weeks”, posted on the 11th (four days ago). I guess it’s taking longer than they planned initially.

Topic: Prime World: Defenders / This map seriously rocks

…maybe there should be some kind of upper cap on how many of these things can spawn? If there already is one, maybe lower it?

Topic: Prime World: Defenders / Card evolution: DON'T EVER EVOLVE A YELLOW CARD WITH A GREEN ONE!

Originally posted by Tyca:

What if you have 3 dragon towers and a unique mirror? Fuse two dragons to make a yellow. Then fuse mirror with a green to make a yellow. Then fuse those two yellows. Would that yield a perfect one? Or an imperfect one?

A perfect one, as far as I can tell. At least the evolution bonus will be 45%. I did this today with an infusion tower or whatever it was called.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Micromanager is TOO punishing for early game

Originally posted by Schattensang:

Also the cost for rehiring is really strange. It costs 132 novemvigintillion when you want to rehire with 1850 news papers. And they give 23 octivigintillion per second for me. But it just costs 388 novemviginitillion when I want to rehire my manager for Oil Companys, but they give me 32 novemvigintillion per second. That just doesn’t make any sense at all.

The cost to re-hire is based on the cost to purchase 1 building (80% of it, or so).

I have to say, Tyrant is the perfect game for tablets. Small-minded game for small-minded players. :D

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Gilded Heroes Predetermined?

It makes sense that there would be some element of certainty behind this, or else people would just export-buy-import until they got whatever they wanted to.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] WMT Update [Tyrant ending on August 15th 2015]

Oh, apparently this is a thing that’s happening. I’d like to think everyone knew it would happen eventually, and honestly I must say I’m actually impressed that the developer would actually keep the game running a year after the point that they’d kind of like to shut it down, and intends to release another final update to boot.

This is awesome, tell me about your time machine! The fact that you wouldn’t have the brains to not take a screenshot of your system clock shows that you’re clearly a young kid on a power trip.

Legit? Heck no. Why the fudge would he only have 2000 oil company? He’d gain cash 30-40% times faster if he’d upgrade beyond 2000.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Scientific Notation?

I think it’s more fun the way it is now, but if it were some sort of toggle/setting, I’d be fine with them adding scientific notation even if I never used it. Once they become purely numbers, they lose a lot of their identity, and I’d probably be a bit less interested in seeing the next one.

Also once you get to decillion, counting up is basically like counting from 20 and up (although it would be more appropriate if I started at vegintillion). 20 (twenty) is vegintillion, 21 (twenty one) is unvegintillion, 22 is duovegintillion… 30 being trigentillion, and then it starts from the un prefix again.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Any other people with extremely low Angel investers

Usually I reset after getting 50-100% more angel investors than I had before. Not sure if that’s good advice, but I feel like it lets me keep a good balance between little micro and good returns.

Only spend angels when the benefit of the purchase outweighs the amount you’ll reduce your production speed.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reasons players might stay ?

1- Already spent a lot of money on this game. Sunk cost fallacy.
2- Spent little or no money, don’t really mind getting hacked, are ‘having fun’ in the game.
3- Think things will improve in the future, even though they’ve been just getting worse.
4- Pvp. Need to rank in top 32 to join dick-waving tournament at the end of the season.

That’s all I can think of. Are there any other reasons players might stay?
