Topic: Clicker Heroes / Siyalatas

Thanks, Zerakil. I was about to ask the same question. I guess I’ll just wait until I have some more hero souls, then! According to my (very simple) calculations, you will get a net profit from Siyalatas if you have at least 3 hero souls per level of Siyalatas AFTER leveling him up—assuming that you constantly idle, and this only works for low levels of Siyalatas. So it’s worth buying, say, level 5 Siyalatas if you will have at least 15 hero souls AFTER buying it.

  3. restart your browser

    It did take a bit, but it sounds like things are working fine now.

Hope this helps,
Pip

Thank you, everything is working fantastically now. Thanks for being patient!

Okay, so now everything on the site works just fine EXCEPT for the games themselves…

There was an issue earlier this morning. Things should be resolved. Let us know if games still aren’t loading for you and what games aren’t actually loading.

Things seem no different now than they were an hour or 6 ago… What was “fixed?”

FYI – not sure if this is related to the issue most of you are seeing, but the site is experiencing alot of “500 errors” when trying to load pages. This seems to be due to a large scale DNS issue.

We have a few players reporting they can’t access the game and/or the forums. We have spoken with our datacenter and there’s a DNS provider who is experiencing issues. It’s out of our own control as well as our datacenter’s control. They (and we) will work to get it fixed ASAP.

I suspect that this is our problem. Thanks, looks like we just play the waiting game for now.

By the way, if anyone needs a screencap of what it looks like, here’s what mine looks like (windows 7, latest google chrome)

Topic: Technical Support / dragon pals

Have you tried playing other games? Many people are experiencing widespread failures all across Kongregate—some people (like Pip) have no problems, others can’t access any games and can barely access the forums.

I too am having the same issue, and I suspect that it’s a Kongregate-wide issue, as both games that run on flash and on unity fail to operate here, but work just fine on other sites such as Newgrounds. Is anyone NOT having this problem? And is anyone who’s having this problem not using Chrome?

As far as what the error looks like, it varies from game to game. Some games there’s nothing, just a dark gray rectangle where a game should be. Other games have a white rectangle the size of the game where the game should be. But none of them will give me a game.
