Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / UPDATE

You know, honestly… I’m torn. I get both sides of perspective here. Yeah, this is definitely a free game. I give props to the devs here for all the hard work they did, but just because I didn’t go to gamestop and drop 60 dollars cash on the game doesn’t mean I haven’t given money to the game. In spite of that, I also don’t feel entitled to constant communication or pandering to my interests just because I’ve donated kreds to the devs. I did it because I felt they deserved it, not because I feel like it should entitle me to more attention than other players.

This is a game I’ve been playing since the tail end of May, longer than any idle game I’ve ever played on this website, or any other for that matter. Does it suck there hasn’t been a real chunk of an update in over a month and I’ve had 2k of everything since early to mid august? Sure, it definitely does. But I would never hate the devs for this. They have other priorities, a lot of stress testing, a whole separate platform this game is going to and a million other things. It’ll be updated when it gets updated and until then I’ll just check it once a day to see if there is an update.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The 2 last upgrades seems like they don't have any purpose...

Yeah, just been a dry month or so without the constant stream of updates we got used to and spoiled by at first. But, once new updates start rolling out I’m sure the caps will be raised to 3-4k , if not higher with even more upgrades to buy. Just keep hoarding those AIs and resetting. At this point for me, I can get to 2000 of everything via the upgrade list and using my AIs to purchase stalls. I want to get to 2k of everything easily without doing that before the update.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / When to soft reset?

I’d wait until you have a minimum of 100AIs before you reset. As you get into the mid-game, you’ll find you’re able to reset with 100x or more than your current AI but as you get into later game you’ll end up considering 10x a good reset point after a week of idle play.

At any rate, I’d always try to wait it out if you can help yourself. Don’t just wait until its double your current AI because it gets frustrating have to repurchase everything. I’d say reset at a minimum of 20x your current AIs.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Isn't micromanagement useless late game?

As others have said MicroManagement is INSANELY powerful at seems to be at every possible stage of the game. Players are making hundreds of times their all time earning from before MM within hours with the new system. Honestly it’s so powerful I strongly believe it needs to be toned down as it has destroyed any form of comparison between players. Great feature in terms of breaking up the painfully slow late game, for all purposes NOT relating to competition it’s awesome. But it’s ridiculously powerful, I can’t imagine anything short of trying to make a joke that would lead you to call it useless.

I don’t see it being that powerful for me. I guess if you push at it for hours, but I definitely don’t have time for that. I’ve played around with it for 20 minutes and I didn’t think much of it. All I thought of it was it’d be neat if I had an auto clicker capable of holding long clicks for 2 seconds etc. lol

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / How many kreds have you spent on this game so far?

I have a x30 multiplier, so not very many. 100 kreds or so? I love this game and I’ll probably end up spending more.

Genlee, if you play this game and enjoy it the kreds aren’t just being ‘spent on a flash game’ they’re going to support to the devs. I don’t know your personal life/finances but if you ever have a spare 5 bucks to spend it’d be a nice gesture to the devs. I don’t normally post things like this, but these devs actually deserve every cent they earn because of how consistent they’ve been w/ updates.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Demon Investors and How To Get Them.

I find this hilarious and amusing because obviously it isn’t fake. Some people get so sensitive these days. If you hard reset due to this you deserved to lose everything.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Why do you think idle games are so fun?

For me, it’s the simplicity of the game. I’ve played other idle-games and they usually have too much going on for themselves to be enjoyable. Especially the ‘anti-idle’ games which are still idle but because I’m not about to spend 4 hours clicking a circle on anti-idle, I just leave my PC on with an autoclicker. Plus, this game has perfected our need for easy, consistent rewards. This game requires zero effort beyond a few clicks and you get to see a visual representation of your progress for doing so. Another very powerful aspect is this game idles while you’re offline. No more leaving your PC on overnight, no more overheating a laptop ’cos you left it on 4 days straight to idle a game.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Swap/Surge/Merger

The point I’ve reached is I can ‘naturally’ reach 1300 of everything on the left side except Lemonade Stands which I get up to about 2500 of and 1500 plus on the right side. I usually start dumping my AIs once I hit this point because the upgrades cost so much even if I left my game for a week I’d probably only be able to buy 100 of a couple things at once and I want to hit 1350 of the newspaper so I can get the Lemonade bonus.

Point is, once you hit a point the price of upgrades can become so much it’s insane so you can use the AIs to artificially bump your income levels. When you’re in the mid-undecillions you find that none of the upgrades are above 1% of your total AI investors so it’s okay to ‘waste’ them.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Got 2000 of everything.

I have a 12x multiplier from rainy day kreds I had left over from a year ago and I’ve been playing a week or so post-release and I’m at 1400 of everything or rather that’s the lowest amount of any I have. I of course made it a thing to get 2000 lemon-aid stands because apparently they’re the best one so far. I also have 100 nonillion AIs as of this reset I’ll be doing in a second here. If I can do this with barely checking up on the game easily I’m sure people who obsess over it and spend the kreds can max out in a week.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Esgrima 2] Sexist much?

I can totally see why someone would find it ‘sexist’ that the only female class is essentially the ‘weakest’ class, and one which has the sole purpose fo mending the wounded and rugged male fighting classes. I can see how one might feel it puts women in the place of the healer, a place below men and only there to heal them. However, in the era this game is set in, and in defense to the dev’s and programmers, it is much simpler to have only one gender option. I will say though: It annoys me, but not because of some foolish reasoning that I find it sexist. Traditionally in MMO’s females are the healer. Vindictus is no different, and yet it’s still wildly popular. I just wish, from a roleplaying stand point in a roleplaying game, I wasn’t forced to be female if I wanted to be a healer. Or for some of the females, it’s wildly hard to find immersion in a game where you’re playing the opposite gender.

Follow me too (: I’m still a low level but I’m hoping the more fleet members I get the easier leveling will become.
