Any chance of gettin’ the player name texts in yer rivals tabs changed to black? I really can’t see every other line, without highlighting. I have that problem in a few places throughout the game to be honest, but that’s where it seems to be most noticeable.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / Special Services - 3 Allies (Elite Mercenaries) for 10 Platinum

Erm, scratch that 15/15 thing. Was looking at the wrong column.

the second one down, being 5 of 5 active, would increase to 8 of 8 active.

For dummies, eh?

You request allies. You can keep requesting ‘em up until you reach 150 of them. If you have more requests out, they can still accept that request, so you’ll have more than the 150 that you’re allowed to use, but they won’t help you in raids. They just exist and do nothing.

However, that second one down in yer list there, those are ‘Elite Mercenaries’. Those are the ones that aren’t people; the ones that don’t come from requests. You can only get Elite mercs from buying them with plat, or winning them with the daily codes.

The more of those you get, the higher that number will reach. You have 15 right now. If you spend the 10 plat(or 7, when it’s a sale), it will read 18/18, instead of 15/15. That number increases.

(Also, randomly, those ones that say “0 of 40/70/et cetera” will become active, and increase the amount of damage you do in raids, if you have enough weapons in your inventory for them to use.

So, I’m fairly new to this whole pvp thing, as I’ve always been a raider, but guild requisites dictate otherwise… Anyhow, I need to know something. Why is there a ‘replay’ button at all? I want it to physically go away, and in it’s place, the rematch button. Also, I know there must be some that like the anticipation and the ‘thrill’, if you will (Hey that rhymed. I’m a poet and didn’t even… realize.) of watching the green bars plink down to red… But I think you’d be catering more to the masses, to do away with it.

I’ve heard tell that the mobile rot makes pvp much faster, an’ believe you me, if I wasn’t a broke ass musician, with a generally broke ass phone… I’d sit in front of my computer, an’ still do it that way, ‘cus it’s soul-suckingly slow.

You’ve made me have to pvp, by not allowing it to be opted out of, so I’m hurtin’ the guild if I don’t… The least you could do is make it tolerable.

Maybe it’s just me. Two cents an’ all that.

I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but it’s only a recent concern of mine. I understand not being able to create a raid of the same boss and tier of one you’re currently in, but there oughtt’a be some leeway with the IV/V ones. If one is currently in a Barrg IV, it should be possible to create a V. I know the mechanic for creating those two are different than the rest, because you’re given the option to create either past a certain level. But not being able to make one because yer in the other doesn’t make sense.

Okay… I have what may seem a dumb question: Is the skill training whozits broken? Or is there maybe a cap I was unaware of? I’ve been “Still recovering from previous training” for a week or two now…
Bug? Or am I just missing something utterly blatantly obvious? ’Cus I do that sometimes.

Random, simple thing. Oughtt’a change ‘Rings’ in the market to somethin’ akin to ‘Miscellaneous’ or ‘Accessories’. ‘Cus… y’know.. s’more than just rings, now.

Also, (and more in the realm of wishful thinking) I’d still like my ‘Army’ of ladies. Redheads please. :p

I know it’s cool the game made front page and there’s a massive influx of new people… But damn, the ideas are the same rehashes we’ve had fer weeks. The comments page has become so awful it’s all but nauseating. No one gets the ‘idle’ thing. Everyone wants that instant gratification. And higher interest.

Also, so it’s not just me rambling… Omnipotent; page 6 of this forum. There’s a pretty extensive list.

Concurred. I’m not quite that high m’self yet cash-wise (only at 540 some odd million, getting just over 10 mil per interest rate claim). But sitting at the halfway mark of level 66 just putzing about with fuckall to do, except watch it grow, an’ wait for 70. I suppose I could fish.. But every time I start goin’ ’fer that whale-farm quest I get bored or distracted, as it were. Hehe.

Not that I mind terribly watching money grow.. It sort of appeals to the megalomaniac/mad scientist aspects in me. :p

A few weeks back I played through that there Ducklife trilogy of games, on a whim. All of that stuff seems like it could be useful in something like this. Not in a plagarism sort of way, mind, but in a simple production of mini-game sort of thing. Nothing terribly extensive art-wise, or in coding on any front there. Just sayin’. However with something like that, it may slowly start to remove the ‘idle’ aspect from the game (which is something I’ve noticed most people don’t seem to get. Everyone wants the instant gratification that comes from most flash games, not realizing that these’re things designed to consume time, an’ not just be played in a couple hours, an’ moved on from).

Okay, so something needs to be done with all these other fish. I have ideas floating around the ol’ noggin. I shall now present some of these ideas to you, solely to get them out of said noggin.

My first thought was on the cod, because you already mention that they’re good with chips in the flavour text for ‘em. I suggest making an option in ’skool’ to sign up for a foreign exchange program. You could have a pinger from England, who decides he wants to to start his own fish an’ chip shop, in the same manner you do your snail burgers. Only he needs your help with the overhead (storefront/oven costs/et cetera) and your help on product (codfish). It could potentially be a good coin sink, and would only show relatively low return, as you aren’t actually doing too much work outside of fishing. But it could also be automated, for the duration worth of fish you provide. You give ‘im X amount of fish, he makes ’em and sells ’em, an’ you get X% of his profit.

It might be useful, or it might be rubbish. But it seems relatively easy to implement, and requires zero new artwork or location. Quests and achievements purely number based. Easy rot. Have at.

Even if those levels are static (which I don’t think they are), one still doesn’t join enough raids to make use of it.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / No fun

Let me start off by saying, I’ve been playing for a good while now, and up until recently I’ve very much enjoyed this game.

I’m sure it’s been mentioned, but the most recent update implemented has kind of ruined the game for me.

There are several things contributing.

A lot of it for me was the chat. I enjoyed (sometimes, in various stages of inebriation) hanging out in chat. The gameplay has been made so that there’s no reason to be on here for more than a few minutes at a time. You pop on, and wait just long enough to find a place to dump your stamina, an’ there’s no reason to stay on. Now, yeah, this may sound exactly like it’s always been to some. But it used to be worth it, to hang out, an’ shoot the shit with other players long enough to get that next ’zerk in, or to see what the boss drops. Which brings me to my next point:

The raid tables. Though yes, it’s awesome to know how much damage it requires to get X percent chance to get Y drop or whatever, the increase has been so much that, even as a high level player (I’m currently level 115), I can only effectively hit one raid a day. There’s no longer a point in throwing a “mere 80 or 90 stamina” into a Nyx III, for example. Which brings me to point three:

Lack of platinum. When I could get a couple platinum from raids, on a good day, I was inclined to throw my own stamina raids out on occasion. I (amongst others) won’t be throwing out those stamina raids any time soon. And that’s going to reduce the number of raids, in turn reducing the number of possible acquired platinum, ad neaseum. I understand the point of platinum is to create income for the game. An’ making them more rare is a way to further that generation, but it’s gotten to a point where it’s not worth it to not be a paying player. Which seems a good way to drive off the free playerbase.

Just observations, all this. I can’t speak for business, obviously, or I’d be marketing instead of ranting about someone else’s games. I’m sure the game’s doing well. I’m just beginning to enjoy it less and less. And I know I’m not the only one having these thoughts.

Didn’t read the updates topic did ya? He mentions having added a ‘loot helper’, in the raids themselves. They’ll tell ya the new levels. It’s how it is, now.

Nosir. That would definitely be taken advantage of. Platinum can either b e acquired from raids, won when you level, traded for certain gems in the game, or paid for. That’s it.
