Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Broken Cards

I really dislike how this game treated allies. Besides all the legendaries being far too powerful (I’d agree with the gamebreaking sentiment), the second half of the current game content actively punishes you for putting them in your deck. There are cards that automatically banish them (so no deplete effects) along with the Acolyte ability in both PVP and PVE. There are cards that do extra damage if you have them (not including the banish or deplete effects that are in addition to whatever you would take without them in the deck). And there is a common card that leaves you defenseless if you play an ally in PVP. Add to that as a non-stop some of my badges literally just don’t work with allies, I don’t get it.

Given that all the non-legendary allies are weaker than the other cards out there, I am wondering who was in charge of designing cards and balance.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] LoH Class Analysis

I still say that FS > NS though. While it is almost always a good thing to do 2x damage, double card play is a double edged sword that very commonly hurts yourself. not counting the minor inconvenience of depleting more cards per turn, a nonstop with high haste proc rate and a deck full of reflex badge cards cannot reliably use any ploys or hold on to timing-specific cards like Last Ditch Effort, since they cannot choose not to play a card.

Alternatively I find that playing two cards allows me to get another neighborhood watch into my hand sooner (churn through the deck if you will) and allows more chances to get the “right” card to counter an opponent’s play. Against brawls that are NPC heavy I find this to be very advantageous.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] LoH Class Analysis

Another thing to consider in the class balance is what cards are badged for what abilities. I play as a non-stop, but most of the cards I put in without my badge (and even some with it) have sculpting.

Firewall, Bathe, Icy Resolve, Fiery Reflection are all in my deck and not my badge. Dual badged is Black White and Red and most good allies for me.

Fire from Within, Immolate, Spitfire, and Dragon Punch are also slightly overpowered, Painful memories is also OP (and I have no idea why it is sculpting and not Psych, because it is associated with Helios isn’t enough of a reason).

I can’t think of another badge that has such high powered cards as well as the best synergy with it.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Draft Reports - Official

Draft 868, won the first round but both others were grayed out. Couldn’t continue and had to quit after about 15 minutes of waiting to be able to do anything. Placement listed as N/A.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Visual Glitches after Update

I have the problem with freezing since the Windows update as well. However mine freezes the whole screen and isn’t in Firefox (as I use Chrome). I am hesitant to use IE. I’ll probably just suffer through it for a week before I try something else.

Also try setting the quality of video setting to medium or low. That might speed it up if you are having the animation take to long. Maybe.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Blood Moon

There are two absorptions that can be referred to, the total and the base value. If you hover over some brawl bosses you will see them with an absorption that doesn’t come from Strength or Wisdom. I just guess that this card is referring to the base value and not the total.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Maintenance issues

psycho, I get that a lot when I try to connect. Basically I am having initial connection problems with my ISP as they traffic control us. I can get to facebook, google, or other majors, but have errors going to other data heavy sites. If it is maintenance than you will see the goblin in a tophat, not the popup error.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / My suggestion for making druids viable beyond queen lena.

How about class specific talismans/potions? The druids could have items that only apply to them with a nature theme. For example,
Sun fetish (talisman) 0/0 Druid: Light attacks have a 20% chance to gain Heal 1.
Moon fetish (talisman) 0/0 Druid: Dark attacks have a 10% chance to banish depleted attacks.
Wood fetish (talisman) 0/0 Druid: Ranged attacks have a 20% chance to go to the depleted pile instead of being banished.
Iron fetish (talisman) 0/0 Druid: Melee attacks have a 20% chance to be shuffled into the deck instead of depleted pile.

Can we have the ability to buy 1st clash packs?

Some of the newer players do not have the 1st clash packs. It’ll be sad not be able to get Cleric of Renshas, Mirror Rorrim, Strategist, Arrow of Attraction, etc.

Getting locked out from getting some older cards suck.

The “new” packs contain 60%-100% 1st clash cards most of the time. You aren’t missing out from anything.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Clan searching for members

A clan allows you to fight specific brawls not available to non-clan members. The only catch is you need to get 2-4 of the clan together at the same time. I have started a clan that plans on brawling nightly at 8PM EST, sign my petition (Gloria) http://www.kongregate.com/games/5thPlanetGames/clash-of-the-dragons?kv_action_type=signcharter&kv_charter_id=1101&kv_trk=guildcharter if you can do nightly brawls.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Clan Recruitment

Sign my clan petition for brawls. I plan on daily brawls at 8PM EST, which is after my kids go to bed. http://www.kongregate.com/games/5thPlanetGames/clash-of-the-dragons?kv_action_type=signcharter&kv_charter_id=1101&kv_trk=guildcharter

More brawls are encouraged, but I needed to dump my last clan since they couldn’t get any brawls going.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / the disadvantage to play 2nd

Yep, starting a duel off at four less cards than an opponent (20% damaged to start) really sucks.
