Now it looks like icons which player is using with his “muscle memory” are temporary replaced by application to trick him into spending money on things he doesn’t want to.
It looks shady as it is now.

Agree. The “enter/look” icon has places swapped with the “upgrade” icon when an upgrade is in progress. Is this really accidental?

1.a new building that is very similar to the altar of sacrifice where you sacrifice 3 of the same hero same rarity to make its rarity higher.
2.make the game less P2W how?…you can transform 10000 or even higher (or lower) gold to gain gems

The other Altar with the rarity system is a very nice idea… (Y)

Yeah… there actually was a system in place for several weeks during beta, it underwent several changes… and then was scrapped completely. It was called “evolution” and required different things, the last version required a certain # of sacrifices to move a hero up a rarity tier. As far as I remember, you needed 10 to move from common to uncommon, 100 to move to rare, 400 to epic, and 800 to legendary. But the sacrifice system was not geared towards it – level caps, and often people hit max level of hero and couldn’t sacrifice any more. I once suggested offering sacrifice options – sacrifice for exp/soul/both – with corresponding cost differences.Well, it’s all gone now.

For more info, check the forum thread “It’s lonely at the top”, and two of the most +ed comments in the Comments tab.

You need money, devs? Understandable. Howzabout selling an energy bar expansion/upgrade?

Topic: Party Of Heroes / Latest changes (04/01/2015)

Hah. I do hope we will be able to enjoy the changes.
Btw “rebalancing” classes after several weeks of live game, after many people have spent money on it, after they brought their heroes to very high levels? You had months of beta to do just that.

I hope, for your sake, that it won’t mean the teams’ synergies are going to fall apart.

And still no evolution even though you promised to bring it back “though in a slightly different way” or some such, as I recall. The hero evolution was the single most loved feature of the game, and still seems to be the single most requested. Yeah, thanks for listening to your community.
I love this game. But I’m not spending a cent on it until it feels like I can actually get my money’s worth, you know?

Topic: Mecha Galaxy / People Cheating with Alts

Heh. The Chris dude must be like nine years old, judging by the first message.

I’ve seen quite a few MMOs where the admins/devs do not punish (blatant?) cheaters, or it takes weeks and yadda yadda… No idea what’s up with that.

If anyone finds out, let me know >.>

Topic: The Gate / Noob Guide for Full Argestes Team (UPDATED)

1/ This is definitely NOT a noob guide. Noobs won’t care, and newbs won’t understand (yes, there is a difference). I’ve been playing for ~3 months, and I can’t make heads or tails of your guide in quite a few places (not to mention using abbreviations in a newb guide without explaining them).

2/ Waah waah, nobody appreciates my genius. Anyone with a differing opinion (albeit well-argumented) must be crushed utterly. Crushed, I say! And ad hominem is the perfect tool for that… right? Woo! I r teh win!

Really, dude. Get over yourself. I’m sure you put a lot of effort into the guide, but it’s a dead-end street. Freepers using this guide will be either pissed off extremely, or disillusioned just as much. The others posting here aren’t doing it to bash you or put you down. They have experience which suggests that newbs can be better off following a (slightly) different path. If you care about the newbs and not just your own supposed infallibility, you should be able to accept that your guide has some points that can be improved upon. There is always room for improvement.

Topic: Party Of Heroes / Best Units/Types to Start With?

Comparing stats isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You should pay attention to skills, too – experiment with different combinations, some can give you pretty good synergy.
As for type, for starters I’d say at least 2 melee.

I’m sure there are much better people to ask, however – such as the top of the leaderboard XD

Topic: Party Of Heroes / Lastest changes (02/04/2015)

I agree. If I were optimistic, I’d say they are setting up a limit to gold farming in order to slow down the freepers’ process of evolving heroes (meaning they would be considering bringing the evolution back). The rewards I get from one stage went from over 2k gold per run to just a little over 500 per run – in about two weeks and two changes.

Wait and see, I shall.

Topic: Party Of Heroes / Sacrifice Bar?

My lvl59 epic needs 3x lvl19 epic, as well. Screw that.

If hero evolution is ever brought back, I may p(l)ay again. Until then, just coast. Bummer, I would love to play this game competitively. But at these prices? Hah.

For hero evolution if it’s ever brought back – suggestion: let us choose to sacrifice for EXP, for SOUL (up evolution), or for both (possibly differentiate by price). This is so that even capped (or maxed level) heroes can still evolve.

Topic: Party Of Heroes / It's lonely at the top (an open letter to reinstate evolution)

Yeah… lack of creativity in getting money out of people results in crippling the gameplay, ultimately resulting in even less money from the game. I would love to see this game shine; I’m afraid it won’t happen though.
OTOH, there are always people willing to throw sizeable sums of money at games in order to feel superior for at least a while…

Thanks for the info. Would have appreciated it without having to throw a tantrum ;)

Can’t shake the feeling that I saw an (almost) identical post by Dedalord already. Communication is not the strongest suit here.

On a side note: hero evolution was the one change that received probably the most favourable replies of all the changes up to now. So of course, they had to go and kill it. I’ll never understand some devs…

Wow. The skill changes look delish. Necro, especially. Ghoul is nice, too. Sounds like full undead party could be viable now.

Only…
… I’m still waiting for the “hero evolution system reinstated” announcement :/

Also, you forgot to add: “(some) story mission rewards were cut in half”. Not cool. And not mentioning it? I can only wonder that you are trying to make up for revenue lost by screwing up the game – by screwing it up even more? I hope to God that I’m wrong. I love this game.

(Or maybe it was just a feature – cutting rewards on already done missions after opening another story mission section/series? Explanation would be nice.)

Topic: Party Of Heroes / Update 26/01/2015

Too bad the hero upgrading/evolution is no longer possible. I feel disappointed at wasting so much time preparing to evolve my heroes and suddenly no longer having that option any more. Good luck with the game, Dedalord; you just lost a potential spender.

Well of Transmutation, amazing! Love it.

- Upgrade system replaced by lowered evolution requirements
Does this mean we can no longer upgrade heroes to higher tier? …or?

Topic: KingsRoad / next event items

Seems Rumble really don’t have a conception of game progress. Seems like a step forward, and a step back. I haven’t seen “event lockbox contains only items” during this event yet. Maybe getting full arti sets was deemed too easy? (Btw I made 9 runs during that day on last event… and I got 4x gauntlets…).

I am quickly growing disillusioned, as I have no idea whether my time and effort spent on the game won’t suddenly be for naught (as it seems to be turning in that direction, I virtually stopped playing and am just in “cautious observation” mode for the time being).

Not going to spend any more money either, as the unpredictability of the future happenstances makes it a really bad investment.

Thought so.

Next, I’m expecting a “gems-only” Invulnerability potion which will last 10 seconds and cost 500 gems or so.

Nope. I survived 6 seconds as opposed to 2 seconds without potion.
In addition to the 32k armor and 18k health, I have 50.32% dodge, (100.32% w/potion), 37.31% (87.31%) parry and 49.95% defend (I have over 100 skill points, 90+ of which are in passive skills). Still not good enough.

I must be doing something wrong… but what?

I’m a 160 Knight with 62K armor and 2.4 damage with damage potion, all major passives 10/10, full artifact set from last event and +32K health and I can not take the single hits from Siege in the Expert event (his punch in the ground or the fire dropping from sky). I need to keep moving and play smart or I’m dead. I honestly do not believe you can win there with your current setup.

Daamn… I guess I’ll have to re-adjust my strategy. I have been to solo everything up to this point, but this does not seem to be possible any longer.

Thanks for your time and tips, R0ck0ut41 and VPV85!

Originally posted by VPV85:

I don’t believe to be necessity nor greed but opportunity; which I believe Rumble is entitled to grab. All I’m asking is that they do some serious economics work in order to find that sweet spot where they can maximize their paying players base and free players community. Every paying player starts as a free player and there are several ways to making money in the process. If they truly want to live up to their speech, they need our feedback in order to try to adjust things there and make their game a great experience for both paying players and potencial paying players. Yep, all free player may become a paying customer at some point. At least on a Marketing perspective.

No argument there. Well said.

Topic: KingsRoad / [RELOADED]: Rumble's Ten Steps to Pay2Win

Fully free to play games are usually not MMOs, and do not undergo such intense development, numerous events, etc. There are costs associated with the games. And if you don’t give any advantages to paying players, why should anyone ever pay?

Yes, the advantages of payers seem to grow more pronounced. Thing is, we can’t possibly tell whether it’s necessity or greed that drive these changes.

I am playing a lot less now than I did two weeks ago, and will not buy any more stuff ingame. That’s my choice and my reaction to the changes. And that’s the only way we can make a noticeable impact on the game so that Rumble realize there is something amiss, imo.

Still, KingsRoad is a head and shoulders above most other F2Ps in terms of playability for freepers (except perhaps the tiny initial inventory and vault). Try checking out Blood and Jade, Blood of Gods, or even Arkadia. There you’ll see how KR might be managed in other cases…
