Topic: Kings Of The Realm / Patch Notes 19th Sept

Raiding orc camps is no longer sustainable so how am I going to get silver? Selling my home-grown res gets me less silver now, hardly worth it. I could be a badass and raid everybody but I won’t be able to afford to heal myself. Hell I can’t even afford to scout anymore.

When I see the comment that the economy was out of control I read that to mean the silver (un-monitized) economy was so large the developers felt they had to find a way to make a profit from it. I take it the plan was by cutting the silver in the game by about half, players would be forced to buy gold to continue playing and advancing at the same rate. Nowhere has it been mentioned that the economy was ever taxing the servers or causing slowdowns in game play. Even after adding roughly 60 new realms and thousands of players its the size of economy that is getting the blame??? And the comment that “inflation in the economy has to be controlled” is a most contrived spin as we are talking virtual reality here. If you explain what you mean by this maybe i will buy it, thank you Mr Ben Bernanke! And to think this is being done so we have the “best game experience” Have a nice day!

If you want more money out of players why not add gold-only content? Ideas: gold only commanders and units, “teleport pass” so you can jump to another distant realm to attack another player. But slashing the silver economy has made the game unenjoyable and practically unplayable for me. For now i am just hanging out hoping you reverse these changes, but if not, I too will be leaving.

Topic: Outernauts / Candy Corn Challenge

Why didn’t the devs tell the Kong users that the total was supposed to be 150?!?!?

Topic: Outernauts / How do I beat a P-Rex?!

Best advice that was given to me is to have a low battle trophy rating when going into these touraments, like around 500 or less. (you have to deliberately lose battle after battle to get it down.) That way you will be assigned players with lower trophy ratings who tend to be lower ranked less powerful players. Also I always cancel and reload the tournament until I get players I can beat with ease. You will be less likely to encounter a lvl 50+ P-Rex that way.

Topic: Outernauts / Leveling beasts

I think the lower level beasts are the best ones to use in the training dojos; they only cost one ticket and take less than 20 minutes to level. After they get to be about level 15+, if you have 4 or more party slots, have them tag along at the end of your party for resisdual experience up. I got my aqua all the way to 41 without ever getting in a battle this way. If you have a lot of low level commons consider euthanizing them for lunar and crystals.

Topic: Cloudstone / Suggestion for the Home screen

I really hate it that my pets are cooped up in a knapsack all day long when they should be allowed to run free throughout my home square. Let them play, frisk and gambol on a cozy square free of monsters.

Topic: Cloudstone / Champion monsters

I like the champs too since they are challenging and fun. I am a wizzard with a ranged staff and I am able to kill them if I can position them behind a stream or ridge, etc so I can fire and they can’t get to me. ( i suppose this is what one player referred to as taking advantage of pathing) The fire penguin helps too. However more often than not the champs get me. Agree they should pay a lot more with better drops than just shards.

A champ at the practice field!!!!!

Topic: Cloudstone / Octopus' Garden

Is there any safe place to stand to avoid the tentacle waves? or what is a good strategy for beating them? I get wiped out pretty fast- only level 29 though.

Topic: Cloudstone / Multiple player summons

The game seems to suggest that it is possible to summon more than one player but I only ever see the button to summon one at a time.(Only when they die can I summon another) Does anybody know anything about this? Is this one of those Facebook only features?
Thanx! -Clair

Topic: Cloudstone / What does this weird graphic mean before and after battles

I am redoing some of my battles from the first part of the game (Sassafras Island) to level up in order to be able to do the next part. A screen appears with a bunch of gold animal statues (or wood, can’t tell)leaking a brownish liquid into the center of a cracked wood thing and there is a picture of a peice of gear pulsating in the center. I am suspecting that i have to beat a battle five times (once for each of the animal statutes) in order to win the gear but i am not sure. What does this weird graphic mean?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] VORG DISAPPREARED :O

Maybe by bumping I just want to annoy all the jerkwads who find this thread to be the dumbest and most tiring thing on the face of the earth and who have been unnecessarily rude to a person(s) asking an honest question about an in-game problem, but my Vorg is gone too and there doesn’t seem to be any possibility of unlocking it in the future. I have been refreshing since last night. Hope he comes back. Going out to call him now.

One more question: (I am new so please be patient with me) I am supposed to be able to participate in the Brukkarg raids but I have no idea how to find them. They are not appearing on the map.

Exceptions I mean. Duh! I knew that didn’t look right. (Prior to coffee) Thanks for the information, I will get to attacking those tribes pronto. Thanks pika and Destroyatron.

Q: I am still in my 7-day beginners protection from attack. I know to refrain from attacking the other low level players around me as it will nullify my protection. However the guide and the wiki seem to be telling me I should attack some of the in-game tribes like the Abunkakki Tribe. Won’t this cancell my initial protection? Or are the tribes acceptions?

How about hotkeys for battle instead of having to go back and click ‘Attack’ every single time. I am getting repeative motions sickness here!

Thanks Wolverine! I will save the arenas and endurance islands for after I have leveled up enough to beat them.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Sacred Seasons 2 MMORPG] Questions about HP, arenas and dungeons

If I leave an arena or dungeon before completing all the battles, then I am reverted to having to start all over- is there a way around this or am I playing wrong.

Secondly how does HP regenerate? I was thinking about hanging out in the arena until my HP gets back up since I am out of HP restoring stuff. But its taking forever and makes the game a bore if I can’t leave the arena before winning all the battles.

I am just starting out and not too familiar with this game – the wiki has very little about this.
