Topic: Card Monsters / Server Issues...

For the last couple of weeks, but especially for this past week, the servers have been ridiculously sssslllooooooowww. For quest, AA, duels, it’s merely annoying, but I have been losing a lot of live matches because I either miss my turn, or only get to put one card down before “Waiting for server…” or something similar. (I’ve also won a few because the same happened to my opponent). Will this be fixed, or is this a sign of things to come?

I can’t imaging there’s been that large an influx of new players recently, which leads me to believe that either edge has removed capacity from the CM servers, or they’re just going to leave them at status quo until the game is completely unplayable (at which time maybe they’ll consider doing something).

Topic: Card Monsters / assault rank points

Cool your jets. There’s no conspiracy. We’ve fought one assault every 24 hours since this thing started (actually there were a couple of times that we started a couple of hours late, but it’s been roughly every 24 hours) and gotten the maximum points each time. I assume that means you’re with Stahlgewitter? The only reason that you guys were ahead was that your first (initial) assault was started a few hours before ours, so depending on the time of day you’d either finished your assault and we hadn’t, landing you in first, or we’d both be done, tying it up. I’m fairly certain that somewhere along the way you guys missed a flank, though, so now we’ve moved up on you. If you don’t like it, assault us…

Topic: Card Monsters / Alliance Challenge

I think the current timing for challenges needs to be changed – you should be allowed one per day, using some reference as the standard (12:00 GMT?). This solves figuring out who’s in first (the alliance currently in first is either 1st or tied, depending on time of day, because they started their first assault a few hours earlier than the other – currently, my – alliance, for example). In addition, when a new day starts, the pre-agreed assault starts. Makes it more interesting for all involved, I think.

Topic: Card Monsters / Alliance Challenge

Because you can only assault an alliance that is not actively engaged in an assault (either defending or attacking), we often find ourselves picking on low-level alliances because nothing else is available. I’d love to see a challenge function that sends out a challenge invitation to another alliance – if accepted, the assault begins at the next available opportunity.

Topic: GemCraft Labyrinth / Premium is Not Just Some Extra Content

Getting the 50x multiplier on the pylon levels is not cheating – what a ridiculous thing to say. In an early version of the game, there was no limit to the multiplier on the pylon levels, resulting in insanely high multipliers. The developer then changed it to a maximum of 50x on pylon levels to limit the total multiplier. Therefore, the developer is implicitly saying doing the pylon levels to get the 50x multiplier is an expected, and therefore reasonable and allowable, part of the game.
