Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Cleared zone 3- level

It depends on how lucky you get with your packs and card drops, if you are willing to put money into the game (not mandatory), if you do zone 4 brawls or clan brawls for certain cards very useful in zone 3.

As a free player I beat zone 3 around level 110, several weeks of playing in total. Like most MMO hard badges, it is not so much about difficulty but endurance.

Make the League button change colour if somebody posts a new message in League chat while you are online. It is sometimes incredibly difficult to arrange League Brawls, without doing private chat with everybody, who is online. When the League tab/screen is entered and the message has been read (presumably), change the colour of the League button back to white. Somewhat similar how Draft events and Mega Brawls change their respective buttons.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Ixnay: Ostlay

Guys, really… the easiest way to beat Ixnay is to have two “Neighborhood Watch” plus an additonal two cards. The only way you’ll lose is if you draw both “Neighborhood Watch”, and this has only happened to me once.

You could add an event or a memento to make the victory certain. Even the lowly Field Dressing you start with will do.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Ixnay: Ostlay

Some specific things that might make Ixnay (the 2nd variant, on normal difficulty) easier:
1. Little Susie: Antihero; specifically her on deplete effect. Triggering pointed responses gives Ixnay free turns to make your deck vanish. If you did not acquire her during the megabrawl event, you cannot use this option.
2. Banish his cards. Banished cards do not trigger their deplete effects.
3. Neighborhood Watch (NW) can stop his ally from hitting you and might stop his chain of attacks. If you got this far without NW, congratulations I suppose. Seriously, get them.
4. Allies are not affected by pointed response and generally have good damage. Use them to do damage if he has depleted some. As a bonus, allies even take out his pointed responses, so you do not have to clean them up with 0 damage attacks.
5. Healing is nearly useless against Ixnay. Any threat that only heals you is useless against him. Time Outs might buy you a turn or two to hit him more though.
6. Stall for time. Play weak attacks until you reach 25 cards in your deplete pile. Hope you do not trigger pointed responses or if you do, get rid of them. Then use your Hood and Mask and play Last Ditch Effort (LDE) to kill him in a single hit. Unless you have a very big deck, you will easily die before you can pull this off. If you are acolyte, please note that LDE will/might heal you before checking for survivor, so you need 26 or 27 cards in deplete pile to not risk wasting your LDE.
7. Use Black and White and Red All Over (BWR) to take out his mementos quickly. Building up the willpower counters in time might be tricky, but see below.
8. Since Ixnay will deplete a lot of your cards, cards with on deplete effects can be powerful. Splash Damage might deal that little bit of extra damage you need. 15 Minutes can get you the willpower counters to make BWR effective. Depleted Quickhits will boost your odds of critical hits. Many events increase the damage of your threats when depleted.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Blanking is a terrible mechanic

It would be better if blank cards were mementos or events, so we will not draw them. Mementos would allow their use (when depleted) for survivor effects. Events would not be recovered instead of useful cards.

I have not lost to undone yet. And I think I even beat 1 without LDE or PM. but after certain point, you might only draw blanks, for the rest of the fight. It has happened to me, fortunately I only needed to build up my deplete pile high enough. They are a weak enemy that just might beat me because I could not do anything to them. Hitting them fast is good. But playing blanks turn after turn after turn is not particularly fast.

On the contrary, blanking has not made Last Ditch Effort or Painful Memories less important or powerful. I cannot rely on steadily whittling down the Undone, with my less powerful cards. The time I spend drawing and discarding blanks only serves to allow them to blank more cards. Therefore, drawing a LDE early and then holding onto it till I can kill them in one hit is my preferred method of dispatching them. Alternatively, I can usually get them down to numbers that make a fatal PM, which is a fine solution too.

The Undone are obviously an enemy that cannot be engaged in a prolonged fight. LDE and PM are the tools that end fights quickly. If anything, the two cards have been made even more desirable.

you ought to have played the neighborhood watch. Dimetrodon went back to your deck. Either way it is a nice win.

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / Bugs!

For some reason I cannot summon small raids. There is no cooldown. I have never summoned one. Raids of sizes medium, large and epic seem to work just fine.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Suggestions (archived)

Why does the chat not allow a wider range of characters? I cannot type certain letters of the Finnish alphabet and I am sure others have similar issues in their own native languages. You do not even permit every character in ASCII to be used.

Could you please make the chat use UTF-8 or some other sensible and modern, standards compliant character set?

Topic: Dream World / mist limit

I will just say: Whatever.

I mist <1k/month. This cap does not affect me at all. Neither will it allow me to catch up any. I spend 200-400 energy a day. I think I do it slower than a true hardcore dreamer though.

You take this rather seriously. There are other games you could play.

Most doesn’t do it now, as they would need too much time and energy for 10% and if there’s few players in a guild that can do serious damage to a boss, they just want it down, don’t want to wait 4 days for others to get their 10%. Quest like that would be great to make up for it, if you can’t do 10% in one go, you can just grind it out.

+1

As it stands, there is nothing for me to gain in faction wars.

Topic: Dream World / Firefox not working anymore

Reinstalled my browser? Bah, the game is not worth it, I’d rather quit. Also, Flash is working just fine, disabling Adblock while trying to troubleshoot proved it.

I will not discuss if Adblock is right or wrong here.

To my knowledge, I do not have flashblock, whatever it is. Your solution did not solve my problem, valaux.

Topic: Dream World / Firefox not working anymore

I also cannot get into Dream World, neither server works. I am also using Firefox 10.0. Sadly, I do not see anything in error console that might be related. It does not seem to be an issue with not finding my account as my character name and level for server 1 are correctly reported in the opening screen.

Using the direct method of accessing server 1, I get a black screen with some white text: “Loading Kongregate API. Please Wait…” , which seems to take forever. Could the problem be with the API or related to how the game interfaces with it?
http://www.kongregate.com/games/kingk/dream-world?kv_sn=1 is the direct address to access server 1, unless I misunderstood?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Card Challenges Tomorrow?

I’d definitely want to get my hands on more of the older cards. I have full sets of robots and witches but only a scattered few other cards. I haven’t been on this site very long though.
