Topic: Bloons TD 5 / PISSING ME OFF

I now get a message that reads ‘oh no, we cannot connect etc’. Only way I can play is as a level-1 guest. And it will not save so every game starts at ground zero with all weapons locked. Yesterday I was a L-70 and all was smooth sailing. Crap!!!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] The Emperors New Clothes

Veritable Warrior
The prize is advertised as ‘this magical armor can be worn over your normal armor’. I really needed help with my armor and this sounded like the ticket. Finally won this new armor but when I put it on, my stats show no change whatsoever and it seems the damage I receive from the bad guys is pretty much the same regardless of whether I’m wearing the armor or not. Is this really magical armor or merely another one of those harmless costumes? Is it coincidence the name of this event is ‘The Lost Truth’ :)

Hey Bigpoint, isn’t it about time to have another ‘truthful’ event? Those are beneficial, if not now then certainly later, to all who play the game. Thanks

The absence of limited tables is probably the main reason that my visits here will be rare, if at all.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Can't connect, Please help

Admittedly, today has been worse than most but still, I’ve spent two solid hours trying to get this thing running. I’ve played the game daily for the past six months and would not care to know how many hours of my life have been spent trying to get this thing to load. I don’t know if the developer is simply to inexperienced to build a program that’ll load or perhaps they simply don’t care. Either way, it’s abundantly clear that this loading problem is not going to go away.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Mucho Dinero

Purchased a ‘ticket’ to Kingshill Anderworld for 300 andermant, stuck my face in the door and promptly got it gnawed off, purchased a second ticket for 300 andermant and lost that ticket when running back out to regain health. I’m broke; the event is pretty much finished for me as it’s far too expensive. Were you allowed to exit, then to re-enter without this 300 andermant charge each time, it’d be almost worth the grind hunting 300 more andermant or perhaps spending a few bucks to purchase them. This event was a bit different and looked exciting. sigh!

@ jwbigredd,
Man, when you speak, stuff happens:)
Kidding but we do have a ‘mercy rule’ in place now, and it makes a big difference, along with a few other tweaks to the game. Kudos to Bigpoint…thanks!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Aggravation

Right click on an item in your inventory with Trader open, the items sold…but if the wrong item was sold you have the opportunity to buy that item back. Inadvertently right click on your crystals of truth and its a different story. Some items that are not normally sold carry little notes warning you to double check the item, or perhaps warning you the item you’re attempting to sell is part of a quest or etc. No such warning on the COT’s, no buy back, no warning, they’re history. Just flushed 3 long days of very hard grinding (1137 cot’s) down the drain along with the anticipation of opening that piece of top shelf equipment I’d finally acquired. Stupidity on my part…yea, but still…. Major League BS.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Parallel stuff

Just made L-40 and headed off to Parallel World for the very first time in search of some decent equipment drops that I’d heard rumors of and really needed. Just how badly I need some good equipment drops was quickly and rudely (I thought:) pointed out to me when I made about two steps after entering before being killed. If anyone has a clan or group that indulges in such things and I could possibly join, please let me know.
Thanks

For the record, this is my favorite game, I’m level 36, I support the game financially and I’ll say this once and then shut up about it. My personal opinion is Team Deathmatch is without doubt the most demoralizing, the dumbest and the longest seven minutes of any game I’ve ever played. I’ve scratched my head more than once trying to understand the rational behind it’s existence, to no avail. Like a cancer…it should be removed or the playing field leveled out. I cannot believe that anyone, unless they’re a bit different, enjoys their routine seven minute (a seven minutes that goes on and on and on and ….) automatic slaughter. Thanks

The arena matching is on range of 10 lvls 1-10, 11-20, 21-30, 31-40 ; so you can face hi lvl opponents and you don’t have a chance. Also there are ppl that buy adermant and use better essences (destruction +300%, beat that with normal ones _) or buffs; and don’t forget 3rd skill tree, pro pvp player have better pvp-talents that give them a good advantage.
For more info check official forums http://en.board.bigpoint.com/drasaonline/showthread.php?t=442938

Icomanser, thanks and well said..but it doesn’t change the fact that, at least to me, the 7 minutes in team death match is the longest, most excruciating and most boring 7 minutes in any game I’ve ever played. That I’m a L-30 had no influence on that comment:). I don’t mean to be hateful, this is and will remain my favorite game but the arena mismatch thing is taking a big bite out of the enjoyment of playing the game. An example, a few matches ago, I (L30) had to face two L-40’s and if that wasn’t enough..there was a stinking Hawk, or something, continuously dive bombing me but hold on… the fun was just beginning, one of the players had two or three huge dogs in the match eating on me. I hadn’t seen that before.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Don't bother playing this game

The game was good for 5 days for me but during the 6th day the game did a infinite loading time and its still broken even with the updates the game creators gave the loading time is still infinite and even with other browsers the game still does the infinite loading time so don’t bother playing this game and don’t bother paying money for it either cause if you got the infinite loading time then you just wasted your own money so unless the loading time is fixed I would rate this game a 0/5 or 1/5 stars

Jason, Jason, Jason….your problem is no patience, no patience at all man! The game was pretty squirrelly…well, very squirrelly, for me as well but I did not give up and run away, as you know who did. And it gave me a fit for 6 or 7 days but as someone mentioned earlier, it seems like it’d be an awesome game so I stuck with it, and you should see it now, it won’t even stinking pretend to load up or to actually play anymore. I’ve seen very few games as buggy as this one, in fact, It’s hard for me to understand why Kongregate and the Developer, Drinkandsing, would put their name on a program as busted as this thing is and release it for the whole world to see.

cept defence doesnt matter as much as offence in this game 1 enchant on a ring is too much imo

OK, so you killed my dream of one day becoming bulletproof.. but that’s only half of my Dreamworld….number of ring enchants will someday have my name featured prominently in mrwiggs8 Dreamworld Record Book:) All is never lost.

Topic: Dream World / Mystery Wars

According to the Post Game Players Guide, Section 7, Mystic Wars, To check the progress of the build phase you’re referred to a Mystic War lobby that’s to be found in the upper right corner of the World Map. I assume what they’re talking about is the compass rose that’s found on the upper left part of the world map. Here you can check the progress of your Guild’s Wonder and also see what Wonders have been completed by other Guilds. That’s fine I suppose but is there any way to see or at least get a rough idea on the progress of the Wonders that are still in build phase? I’m never sure whether to check back in 5 minutes or the next morning:)
Thanks

For some reason kong keeps adding them to my block list every few days.

Wow, was having trouble as others described here so I checked mail settings as you suggested and found DW, KingK and about a dozen others were blocked. Removed block and all seems to work fine now.
Thanks

Topic: Dream World / I hate it when (DW related) thread.

Without rules there is only chaos when a number of people kong….uh, congregate. But rules can also be enforced to the point that it would seem detrimental to the event they were meant to govern. A big part of the reason I began tuning this game in on a daily basis, nearly a year ago, was that I enjoyed reading the forum and the cast of loonies that helped me understand the game and were enjoyable at the same time. Many of those guys are still around but nowadays it seems like nearly every other post is removed. Sometimes I wonder if a bounty is paid for each post removed. It just seems the rules could be relaxed a smidgen. Delete foul and vulgar language, hate mail, drug references but jeez, anytime someone strays away from DW even just a little bit must their post be removed??? It’s getting very, very boring reading ‘this post has been removed etc..’ over and over.
