Topic: Kongregate / Chronicles of Blood loot challenge

While the rest of us get boned, at least the winner can have the accomplished feeling of having EARNED the prize for having to have…. experienced… this offal. Unless they entered by mail, in which case cheers to them!

Topic: Miscrits / Suggestions anyone?

It took nearly a full year for facebook to get the Volcano Island expansion. I think we can afford to be a little more patient. The game has only been on Kong for a month, after all.

Topic: Miscrits / Finding Rares More Reliably, A Suggestion

In the free zone Luna is technically a rare, as it appears in a small area of Gemma on only two days of the week, regardless of what your opinion is on the matter. In Ice Tower, Luna is common enough that it’s unwise to start with a wind crit. Strike that: Not merely common, but considered very common by the community at large. So the free players have to bust their butts on Monday and Tuesday to maybe find it, but pay players tooling around in Ice Tower rearrange their teams to avoid a critical hit by it.

Topic: Miscrits / Finding Rares More Reliably, A Suggestion

For pay players, it’s not hard to find many miscrits that are rare for free players. Thundercracker, Fossillia, and others are not even uncommon in Jungle Shores, and Luna is a downright nuisance in Ice Tower. Should this particular aspect remain part of the “pay to win” strategy?

Topic: Miscrits / Finding Rares More Reliably, A Suggestion

From the players’ point of view, finding some rare miscrits is extremely unreliable. For example, it took me weeks to find Blazebit, but I had found all the other forest rares in my first two weeks without even looking for them. I recognize that Blazebit is supposed to be harder to find, but that’s only an illustration for this suggestion.

What if the probability of finding rares was calculated differently? Say you checked every pink flower in the forest for a 2% chance to find Tulipinny, but every failed attempt boosted the chance to find it in the Magic Flower by a small amount to as high as 25%, to be reset upon checking the Magic Flower? For transparency’s sake, if a fight resulted from the pink flower check, the percentage boost could be shown in the loot window. That way players could eventually discover for themselves what prop type improved chances to find a given miscrit in the central prop.

Cacti for Thundercracker, rocks for Fossillia, reeds for Waddles, etc. For the location-dependent daily crits on the beach (I’m looking at you, Ignios), checking the prop type they would appear in before checking the correct location (all nests on Tuesday/Saturday, and so on).

This would give unlucky but clever players a way to weight the odds a little more in their favor, and give players who have given up looking for a particular rare something more concrete to work toward. All without making it TOO easy and simply handing success to the player.

It would also make it less hair-tearingly infuriating when the miscrit collector asks you to spend hours, possibly weeks, grinding for a rare he wants only badly enough to give you a handful of gold for it.

Thank you for your time!

Topic: Miscrits / Is there any way to link my facebook account?

To allow FB characters on Kong would undo everything they’ve already done to balance the Kong version, and would make Miscrits’ presence on Kong redundant and completely unnecessary. It would also create resentment in the Kong-only players to be ground into dust by a veteran FB player with crits from places the Kong player can’t yet go.

In order to see the full game screen without going fullscreen, you need to zoom out using your browser’s zoom control or using CTRL+scroll mousewheel. It may make the chat text difficult to see.

However, the links with which they spam are referral links. If you use the link to get here instead of locating it manually, they DO benefit. At least a little bit. >:|
