Topic: Ballistic / Marksman skill tree

The fun thing is, the folks who stay in the safe zone never will win a match for their team. Really dont help their team much even. The fields of fire are easy to maneuver around, and it means one less player for their team. Especially on KotH or Point based things, they’re just a bit more deadweight to slow your team down. The best wraiths, I’ve found, are the ones who constantly move to new positions out in the field or those who pin people in their own spawning points for as long as they can. Safe zone camping may be fun (?) but you’d better serve your team by run and gunning/grenade chucking/being a bullet sponge/forerunner for your team’s better players.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Personally, I’d say 10 defeated on (normal) Survival mode would be a very solid hard badge, even far more difficult than most hard badges out there. Survival and insane survival arent so different, basically coming down to which bosses you draw. 5 on insane survival mode so far outstrips other hard badges that I cant really see endorsing it, as it is significantly more difficult than many impossible badges and would come down largely to how many cactus bosses/alien bosses you draw. A 10 insane survival mode would be a bit unreasonable for an imp badge, I think, but that’s kind of the fun of them. Would finally be one to compete with V:GL in difficulty

Topic: Kongregate / Birthday Kreds

Not a good idea. People would be making 730 accounts and earning 20 kreds a day which they then use to dump into a main account with a shell game that allows for kred purchases. Could probably automate the system and up the scale to be making massive sums more than that too. Even if not, Kongregate.com would be bleeding hundreds of dollars every day that it doesnt need. Kreds are real currency, not just online money. People can make their livings off of kred transactions. Better keeping birthday presents to fake currency and family/friends that can be coerced into donating to the pity fund. Lastly, it’s not that hard to earn kreds. Earn some money (eBay, etsy, surveys, donate blood, wash cars, sell lemonade, serve your parents, mow lawns, deliver newspapers if anyone still uses newspapers, build sites, make games) and then buy kreds with the cash. Or save it up for a house and food if you arent a true gamer.

Topic: Legacy of a Thousand Suns / Suggestions and Improvements

Er… there is a perfectly consistent experience mechanism. Basing it on damage would be—by definition—inconsistent. The system is more or less flawless when it comes to exp. And a button that consumes 50-100Stamina/Honor/Energy would make over leveling too easy and completely remove the choice for the prep work of saving up mission bosses as a WR nears.

I should read through this, but… Yeah, so no icons show up after usernames anymore for me. They’re still in order (I’m sure they’re still friended), and I still have the M/R… I think… but it is not visible to me! Just started today. Using Firefox as my Browser. Also, the green connection thing is no longer visible. All hail kong baby! I’ll try to attach an image:

Topic: Ninja Warz / Kredders Suck

Kredders really arent the ruination of balance. They dont have that much of an edge, if you train your guys properly and spend a little time farming. They contribute an interesting angle to the game besides the more obvious contribution. Besides, it’s almost always the farmers who are the hardest to beat, not the kredders. If you dont like them, focus on NPCs for fighting, and farm up until you can beat them. Or just avoid the tournaments entirely, because a tournament with “suckier items” would not only be worthless, but would further contribute an edge to the ones who spend kreds—they would have access to weapons that you do not. So no. I do not agree at all.

Topic: Ninja Warz / Regen health

I disagree entirely. I think it should be graduated, perhaps, and kept to a proportionately high level compared to your income, but certainly not decreased. Health regeneration is fast early on, because you have very low health. And it’s terribly cheap to heal yourself. Later on though, it could help make gold a little less useless if it charged closer to 5-10 times the amount, imo

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] What retard developed the pvp system for this game?

I recognize that it isnt always fair, but as long as the levels are close… I mean, a level 16 ranger can smoke a level 18 mage if they know what they’re doing, and I’ve had a level 15 soldier curbstomp me while I’m a level 18 ranger. And if people work as a group, then mages pretty much reign supreme. It may not be perfectly balanced, but it isnt broken. Entering the arena before 15 is probably not a good idea though, maybe push that quest off until you are ready to enter the Crypt

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] Errr any tips for this quest?

I’m with Magician here. I just looped him and raided the sarcophagus while he came hurtling toward me. Draw him out one of the entrances, slow him down if you can, swing around to another entrance, dart in, grab the stuff, bug out using the teleport/jump skill and running like a giant axe weilding undead monster is chasing you. Courage is over-rated when it comes to finishing up quests =P

Also, friend them, watch them flicker out of a room, try to attack… and it says “attack” but that they’ve suddenly logged back on. You can actually spot them. A few users use them, and while its an annoying exploit its up to the dev, afaik, to fix it. And kixeye seems to not mind it

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] ProjectX ... a bit useless really?

Also, if you’re going to PPX, do make sure you have your Proj X highly upgraded. Putty nuking grants double walking/attack speed(as well as invincibility), so their gains from prior upgrades are magnified twice over(walking speed and damage up). PPX with ProjX level 1-2 is really not very daunting. Project X level 6 are going to be moving at 2.6 speed and deal 4400 per second each. A pack of 30 of them is something to be reckoned with. A lot depends on the base you’re attacking. No strat is universal. If you attack a tight boxy base with highly upgraded towers and full silos, it would be worth PPXing in order to drastically weaken your target/set them up for looting. If you go hunting the pure pathing bases, you would be better off using twig/pebble bombs and sturdier sorts, or airborne. as for the bunker thing: I do not think ProjX perform well in bunkers. In my experience they just arent very useful there. wBandi+rDave are better, if cliche.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Backyard Monsters] My Town Hall level 7 yard

Its really not that vulnerable to catapults at all. Remember you get at most 10 attacks in a day, 4 attacks in a row(and hoping he doesnt log back in during that break), so you cant just fling stuff at him all day long. His towers are not clustered together very tightly, which is a very bad thing for bombing. Those Teslas are going to be upgraded. You’d have to sling around so many 2 million pebble/5 million twigs to expose his TH/silos(the ones, of course, that you didnt inadvertently destroy) that it would be a total loss to bomb him imo… and besides, so what if you torched one or two of his Teslas? That wouldnt be enough to break the base completely open. Honestly, it is one of the most catapult-resistant bases I’ve seen. A PPX or two is what I’d see as the most effective means of dealing with the defenses, and unless you have an extraordinary personal grudge, that would be terribly wasteful. Now to see what it looks like in black diamond…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Sacred Seasons 2 MMORPG] Where's the Cenotaph in Hollow Oak?

Hidden cloak is the second dungeon in, last stage of the dungeon up on some gray stones. It is easy to miss. Hidden mask is the cave dungeon. Axe is the dungeon by the weapons tomb. The hat can be found on the ground on the main map and inside the dungeon behind the cenotaph(!)

However, if you grab the loot and fight them once, you can no longer use the method of refreshing. You simply have to find someone strong enough to help you kill them.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Portal Bug and Multiple Accounts

So, to make it perfectly clear, we are never allowed to stop or recall while in portal? If you could answer this I would be most appreciative. Note: to say “no” is to effectively demarcate portals as useless since people can just wait on the other side and you cant do a thing about it.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Glitches/Bugs

I’ve encountered several bugs, most just cost resource or time(heroes touching things and walking back without attacking, the transport res glitch, the entire minimap never working, click and drag=having to refresh, character hangs out in arena for 5-10 minutes after arena ends), but now i’ve found a much worse one. Recently I leveled a hero up in an Ivory Tower and it received no points to allocate. So essentially a 160 hero combat base hero is ratchetted down to a 159. I’m afraid to level anyone up anymore, lest my heroes continue to grow weaker. (Ysayell on Narcissus server, undead hero, Holmes, 57/102/39 at level 38 and received no attribute point when he reached level 39 during the morning of April 12th.). If this could be fixed that would make me able to play the game again.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Convo with me and gm.. gms are stupid

Also, you didnt get the castle. Sometimes battles stop early. Usually with <15 seconds less to go, but sometimes higher. if you have not won by the point your units stop attacking, you did not capture the castle/kill the enemy/win the cookies. So on top of being rude to the GM you were incorrect. Granted, the ending-20-seconds-early thing is a bloody pain and not exactly in my fav five, but… them’s the breaks.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] Crappiest Level 10 Tavern in Existence

Or snailgames made it so that the HoG world wouldnt be flooded with extraordinary characters thus cheapening the rare few worthwhile ones and removing the interest in waiting for the hero refresh. Plus the divide between those with high level taverns and those with lower ones(generally the weaker players) would be even greater. The taverns are fine as they are imo.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] demon race?

While I recognize that they mythology angle is fairly consistent and… well… cool, If you used creatures image/form designs based on the 7 deadly flaws for 7 of the units you might be able to devise something interesting(the names could be whatever floated your boat). The remaining three would be a bit out of line, but if you were making them an NPC only army it would be easily solved. Sloth for the slow units, scouts for envy, wrath is self explanatory, i mean, it has potential. I frankly think that devising a good number of NPC only monsters would be a welcome change anyways, far more interesting than new races, and with far less chance of upsetting the alright slightly skewed balance.
