Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / CAPITALIST PROPAGANDA

I do think an AdVenture Communist game could be interesting. Maybe not ‘fun’ (although the same argument could be made for this one, but we seem to enjoy just watching numbers get bigger), but an interesting experiment.

For example, instead of increasing a personal money total every time a job (‘job’ rather than ‘business’, to focus on individual activity rather than being an owner) is clicked, the money goes to a global money total. Multiplier bonuses for everybody are unlocked by reaching (and maintaining) global money total levels. Every so often, a player could click a “claim my share” button to take 1/‘total number of players’ of the global money total for their personal money total. This would create a conflict, since withdrawing money could increase personal buffs at the cost of decreasing global ones.

The personal money total could be used for a few things. One would be to buy personal upgrade multipliers. Another would be to buy ‘robots’ (because ‘managers’ is too capitalist of a concept) to run jobs automatically; rather than having separate business totals and managers to run all of them, each robot bought adds one to the total and runs it automatically. The third would be to ‘donate everything’ (the equivalent of ‘sell shares’), sacrificing all personal upgrades and robots, depositing the remaining personal money total back into the global money total, and gaining some number of ‘political favors’ based on a function of the money donated.

Those political favors, rather than providing a direct profit boost like angel investors, would provide temptation to exploit the more nefarious sides of this system. Spending these would enable an individual to have their share of the global profits collected automatically, more often, or be more than the default percent. If used properly, investing that increased income could help the global money total grow faster; if used too greedily by too many, the global money total could crash.

Topic: Bloons Monkey City / Bugs Megathread

I think this new “Milestone Rewards” thing broke Contested Territory. At least, this “flash and then nothing” bug didn’t happen to me before it was implemented, and now that it is, it glitches out every time on round 16 (the first round of rewards).
Also, I think the problem has something to do with time stopping. I clicked on the Monkey Boost button to see if my screen was completely disconnected (waste of 5 bloonstones) and the boost animation never faded.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / What's your favorite game to play when AdCap is Down?

As for the other Idle game I play, “Save the Earth – The Incrimental” is interesting.

I played Sky Quest yesterday and I’m playing it now. Quite a nice game, but turns to grinding close to the middle. It’s hard to play it without spending Kreds =(

Sky Quest does turn into a grind towards the middle, levels often ending up either easy or impossible depending on your equipment. However, it is also very easy to play without spending Kreds if you use the free crystals effectively. It is easy to get more crystals (chance from treasure chests, every 5 100%-cleared levels, every EXP bar fill after level 50, single player and coop challenges, and every 5 waves in Survival). The Survival (on Easy difficulty) crystals are my favorite, since at some point, the levels seem to stop getting more difficult. And for using crystals, due to how crafting works for always giving something of an equal or higher level, using the 2x crystal craft for uncommon items is the best choice to inflate equipment levels; with good reflexes, you can pick whatever item in that crafting roulette you want, and you can mostly ignore spending gold to buy items in the shop. Personally, switching to the 10x crystal craft after getting everything maxed, I now have level 999 legendary items in every slot, without spending any Kreds.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Tower Heroes] Game Guide 6

Instead of creating a new thread for every segment of this guide, it would have been better to sequentially post those blocks of text in a single thread. Also, readability would be enhanced if you used the ‘enter’ key to place each topic in a post on a different line and/or made the headings bold. Running the whole post through some kind of spell-checker (as well as putting a space after punctuation) would be helpful too.

Can’t fault Kong for a developer’s choice to take the game down. This one was available on multiple platforms, and all are closing down at the end of the year, so it’s not like the developer chose to withdraw support just from Kong to focus on the Facebook version like some others that I’ve played.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Top condition to have any chance to be competitive in this game

The whole point is that, because of the card Grip of Fanaticism, any class is advised to get their psych badge up to rank 10 as fast as possible because Grip skips the opponent’s turn when you have a rank 10 psych badge. This effect is much more powerful than any of the other cards that require a specific badge to be rank 10 for all its effects.

Topic: Astroflux / PVP Is the reason I quit

I do not mind that this game has PvP. Even though I prefer PvE personally, I realize that there are others who enjoy PvP. There’s an entire PvP-only area that I’ll likely never go to, and there’s level caps on PvP in other systems to keep things relatively balanced among PvP in those systems. If you really don’t want to PvP, you can use your map to keep away from any “pirates” or stick to systems where your level is above the PvP limit.

I for one would like to follow my own advice, sticking to PvE and going the other way if I happen to see a pirate on the map, but one aspect of the PvP system is terribly flawed: planets.
1) You cannot access your map from a planet.
2) There is no “safe zone” around a planet.
3) There is a lagging fade-in on exiting the planet where you appear before being able to move/attack/defend/etc.
This results in the potential for people to wait for someone to leave a planet and just shoot them down instantly, without any way for the other person to anticipate or react.

For that reason if nothing else, I’ll stick to systems where I am unable to participate in PvP until I am too high of a level for PvP in the next system. Pity, since I already fully explored all the planets in those systems and don’t have any trouble fighting the PvE enemies there.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Class Badges or Shared Skills?

As far as skill point use goes, I’d say get your primary badge up to rank 10 first (As a Non-Stop, once you get through the volume 2 issues, Missing Each Other is going to become one of your best cards). Then work on increasing your ally, event, and memento limits, as those cards are generally more useful than normal attacks, and perhaps dupe limits after that. Eventually, for increasing other badge ranks, Non-Stop gets more use out of its sculpting badge than psych or power. Deck size 50 is plenty for where you’re at though, so don’t worry about that for a while.

I have not returned. However, my father plays this game still and is stuck in a world map full of hackers. I have invited him to one of my outposts for sanctuary.

del838269 has my permission to attack and take over any of my outposts. I request that no member of The Dragon Knights attacks him or his outposts, as I have requested that he not attack anyone without provocation.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Why was titanium removed from the megabrawl drop table?

Perhaps because of other people with color collections more like this:

Still, it was a poor design for packs to drop basically everything but purple and orange, then the last mega brawl drop basically only purple and orange.

Different paths to the same conclusion, as far as I can tell. Both have the same story, but you personally fight on a different side for most of the fights depending on the path.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] How Many Free Drafts Have You Earned?

Interesting thread concept here. Anyway, I have been keeping track of my drafts:

Total drafts participated in: 66 (198 draft packs)
Draft placement: 21 first, 16 second, 16 third, 13 fourth

Draft packs earned from those placements: 63 from the firsts, 32 from the seconds, and 16 from the thirds
Total “free” drafts earned: 37 (111 draft packs)

So I regain about 60% of my draft packs on average.

More statistics:

Epic cards drafted: 14 across the 66 drafts = about 21% drop chance (7% per pack)
Legendary cards drafted: 3 across the 66 drafts = about 4.5% drop chance (1.5% per pack)

Technically, I have participated in 69 drafts, but 3 of them broke due to various bugs and glitches, so that would be around 4-5% chance of failure. Reports were filed and the draft packs were compensated on those occasions, so I do not count them.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] No reset of Halloween issue?

Yes, this is a one-time issue. The reason why there is no reset is because you get a free Pumpkin Bucket for completing it (a 20LC value!)
If you are a very high level though, you can go through again on crisis for a second Pumpkin Bucket, but the enemies are so much stronger on crisis.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] the new expansion packs

I’m fairly certain that the “new expansion packs”, if you’re referring to the new set of cards due to be switched in, will cost exactly the same as the current packs, replacing the “preview 2” packs in the shop.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Question: Old MB Cards

I think it’s safe to assume that the mega brawls themselves will never return.

However, there is a possibility that there will be an alternate method of obtaining the rewards from previous mega brawls in the future, though any specifics there have not yet been released.

From the cog in the lower right corner of the game screen, you can click the box to turn off animations, and decrease the frame rate.
By right-clicking on the game screen, you can click on “settings” and change “local storage” to “unlimited”.
Also, by right-clicking on the game screen, you can change “quality” to “low”.

Refreshing every half hour helps too.
