Topic: Lionheart Tactics: Feedback and Problems / sniper skill let my phone restart :D

This issue still happens to me regularly.

I tell the Sniper to attack, and the graphic of the attack freezes my phone, and reset it.

It has probably happened 10-15 times over the past week. Quite annoying, especially when you’re about to win a battle.

Android OS, using x3 speed if that matters.

Topic: Lionheart Tactics: Events / Stone sale!

ffs, triple Acrobat stones should be banned. Spending the last of my gold to get 5 Acrobat stones in 3 elite packs completely ruined this promotion for me.

Are we serious with this compensation? This doesn’t even cover the wb. How about some spirit seeds since we lost those from no 2nd arena at the least. This is all just bs crap. Thanks for throwing 10 Soul Crystals in, it really helps.

It’s a fkn joke of a compensation package. Where is the weekly end of week GB rewards? 10 Soul Crystals? You guys are like 140 short. No WB, no GB, and for my guild, no DA or Guild Tree. The compensation is pitifully bad.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Jagged Alliance Online] maintenance

That is really odd. Only thing I can think of is I accidentally didn’t click to accept my daily prize, and maybe it reset because I didn’t claim it? I definitely logged in, at least once. Hmmm.

Did the maintenance reset our # of Days Logged In streak? Because I logged in yesterday, and when I logged in today, I was back at “Day 1” after having logged in every single day since the new daily promo began.

Topic: Wartune / so much bad in update but...

Downrated the game to 1 star, will probably be quitting soon after. I am now completely worthless in Arenas, Duels, PvP, Plundering, Guild Battles, and Battlegrounds.

I started playing Day #3 or 4 of when Server1 opened, and spent ~$100 on a fkn browser game, and my character is still garbage. I’m almost as bitter about the change in Holy Seal CD to 60s (from 45s) as I am about the clothes/rage issue. At least dumping a ton of EXP in Holy Seal was my equalizer for awhile.

edit: I had 49K health in a BG and was dying in the 3rd round time and time again to the same mage camping our BG spawn point yesterday. Absurd.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Jagged Alliance Online] Patch Notes 21st of February 2013

While I think any Daily Login reward is great for this game…I’m not sure how $1-2K daily is going to help me pay for mercs or $50K+ for building upgrades…

Definitely appreciate the gold after 7 days though (although I think a 5 day in a row cycle would be more preferable…less of a punishment if you miss a daily login and have to start over.)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Jagged Alliance Online] Experience bug for low level soldiers?

I am bringing a squad consisting of 3 level 47 soldiers, and 1 level 28 soldier I just hired to level 45.1.

Why are my high level soldiers receiving 700 or so EXP per kill, but the level 28 soldier only receiving 30 EXP? Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? I expected bringing a lower level would help me level them up faster, not stunt their growth massively. If this is an intended game feature, it is ridiculously frustrating.

I generally don’t find it that bad, although level 56-7 stuff is a real pain to fix.

Currently I’m Rep level 47 with level 47-48 soldiers, with L6 First Aid and Repair shop. Can’t max it out as it seems impossible at this point in the game. (IOUs, Gun Blueprints, and Monitoring tools are too hard to come by…as well as $35K-$50K per upgrade.)

Really, really annoying to spend $1.5-$2K to only get an 85% chance at healing/repairing (which seems to fail well over 15% of the time, for that matter.)

Yay, about time! I was checking in daily waiting for the update. =)

One thing I wish was addressed…the way healing/repairing works. It stinks at higher levels, unless I’m doing something wrong. (I shouldn’t have to buy all the best stuff available, fill 3 slots, and still fail 20% of the time losing $1.5K.)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Jagged Alliance Online] Bug reports

Why does it seem like some enemies have easily 30+ AP at their disposal?

I mean, it feels like they’re fkn cheating at times. How do they move 5 spaces while sneaking, then use x3 spray regardless of what weapon that is? (The cheapest I can come up with is 31 AP in this scenario.)

Makes me want to break my monitor. :X

edit: For what it’s worth, it’s the level 45 “Sprayer” NPC with the blue shirt and sunglasses that makes me want to punch boxes full of warm cuddly kittens.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Jagged Alliance Online] Strange mechanic

I agree with this. Make it so when a merc is hired you get him for X number of missions minimum or something. (Ie, You can use him for as many missions as possible in 24 hours and/or a minimum of 5 missions. So if his contract is passed 24 hrs and you only brought him in to 2 battles, you get 3 more then the Merc is off duty and needs to be rehired.)

Did you actually have to win a match to have a chance at the lottery/participant prize? Or simply compete?

For what it’s worth, it wasnt much better in the 30-40 range. I probably joined the queue 20 times on and off over the course of 8 hrs and only managed 3 legit matches. I was spamming in game and in Kong chat looking for anyone 30-40 for naked pvp.

Maybe Cliffhanger can somehow put an in-game banner in somewhere when a promotion/event like that is going on?

Probably i was that guy with medkit :P It was 1:00 am in my time zone, we both were camping for like 5 rounds and i had full backpack of medkits from missions so to end it faster i decide to go Rambo on you and use medkit after it. Anyway it was really good match. In other rounds i had like 4 armored team, one killed me on purpouse becase he needed honor, but for 6h of playing i had also 9 counted matches. Lost 3, won 6, hope for 100 bars :P

Ha! I still don’t know how you got behind me. I wasn’t camping for 5 rounds, I was running my commando from your starting spot all the way back to SW corner of the map. =p I think you had said “You have the advantage, you should charge me. ;p” I kinda chuckled, because I had spent the last 4 turns trying to get over there all sneaky like.

Overall it was a very good match. (I think you got the 1st kill, I got the next 2, then you evened it up 2 v 2 on the next turn.) Just bummed I thought I was going to get a win. =p

It was a fun idea, wish more people took part. I failed miserably with this event.

1st match, Jamosh: fast loss. =P

2nd match, Puman: man you play WAY too slow. that was utterly painful, timing all the way down every round while not even moving your guys.

3rd match, went 10+ rounds before I found the other guy…who was wearing armor. =(

4th match, Some guy: Overall a great match, we were down to 2 vs 2, and I felt I was about to win…then he used med kits to heal his guy that had a sliver of health back to 90%+. Really lame, left a bad taste in my mouth.

5th match, guy wearing armor.

6th match, guy wearing armor.

Soooo…I went 0-6. Probably would have been more fun if I were level 50 than level 33-35.

Eeeesh, so it didn’t start last night?

I spent almost 2 hrs on and off waiting in the queue last night only to get placed with some guy with armor and weapons on.

I kept asking for battles in chat, it seemed no one was around, or no one was interested in nekkid PvP.

Are these two SEPARATE events, or will a score in the 12 AM event be added to a score in the 12PM event?

Are there “missions” within the event, at the conclusions of which, one can return to home base & do the usual r&r – or is it one mission which lasts until everyone in the company is dead?

Is it single pvp, or is a free for all, with multiple players engaging simultaneously?

Thanks.

I’m almost certain it’s only 1 event, from 12 AM CST to 12PM CST. I think the “and” was a typo.

There are no special missions, it’s just hop in the PvP queue with no armor/nothing in your backpack and go at it.

So this starts at 1AM Eastern Std Time? So ~8 hours of the 12 hour period is when the majority of North/South America is asleep? That’s ridiculously poor timing for a tournament.

Also, I think you should open the tournament up for players with a rep level of level 25+ instead of 30+. While I’m above 30, I think it should really try to include as many players as possible, and it may be hard finding matches with only players 30+.

(And considering you can use weapons up to level 23…may as well include the players that can get and/or are using level 23 weapons?)

When I get some free time, I’ll ask about the equality in contests and activities.

Can you ask about the faulty Scroll packs from a couple weeks ago? The PATTK pack was missing a Mag Def scroll (which is arguably the most important for passing the Eyes in the Crypt). I received a support email back from R2 saying they would take care of it and compensate those affected…but I’ve got nothing since then.

I’m not buying more balens or making another purchase until this little issue is solved.
