It’s annoying that lvl92 can get positron equip. That makes them fuse less, lose less enchants at all, which option we did NOT have. I’m still saying 93+ dw, and 95+ positron would be better balancing.

Every expansion makes getting top items easier by adding new means of doing that. Remember when DW items were only dropping from mystery boxes? Then we got Faction War to grind for DW equips. Does that make you unhappy as well? If some lvl92 player chooses to waste hundreds of energy to get top spot in Hell 3 hoping for an extended item, it’s up to them. I’ll just stick to my DW gear until I get strong enough to kill Mormo in 1 energy.

Topic: Dream World / REAL hardcore badges

Originally posted by omark96:

First off not really that much of hardcore badges if people already have completed most of them. ‘Cause that’s what you complained about with the new badges, that they were so easily accessible, right? Secondly, the Fallen, chests and puzzle badges will have to get removed ‘cause Fallen isn’t accessible to 95+ guys and the leaderboards can’t be used for something like that. However I believe some people would enjoy cheating with the leaderboards to get those badges.

However I believe if chests/puzzles badges were to be added, chest/puzzle counters would be also added to the game and kong leaderboard would be irrelevant.

The thing i want to state is that only luxury items should be bought with bucks not necessary things like gems, for eg i have started playing Realm of the mad god 4 months later than dream world and i am pretty much like a god there with all epic stuffs the only edge that paid player can have over me is buying a colorful clothes for you char, and i only made my way to lvl 71 here its just like watching a grass grow, there is nothing like ‘skills’ here only grinding.

Pff. So you don’t want to spend money, neither you want to spend time and you are dissatisfied by the fact that this doesn’t allow you to reach top ranks? Keep in mind that DW has been around for over 3 years and some players have been playing since the very beginning. Are you seriously expecting to get anywhere close to them in a month or so? Be realistic.

Yeah sure you can acquire all things in this game for free but in how much time ? 5 days for 6 gems that means if you wanna buy 16 gems worth LP its nearly 18 days which another player can buy in mere seconds buy spending out cash and forget about those 50-60 gems allies and finding a chest is moderate but one that spits out crystal is rare, nice try Mister.

1. Buying LP is a waste of gems. The only thing worth buying is energy and genius (after getting all premium items, allies, and maxed bank storage of course).
2. One weekend of hard grinding gives ~50 gems worth of pink/white crystals.

Topic: Dream World / 21k puzzles?

Ah, that’s what you mean… These statistics are different from chests and puzzles. DW doesn’t keep track of chests and puzzles, so every time a chest/puzzle is opened, it uses kong API to increment the counter by 1. But mobs/pvps are counted by DW itself, so instead of incrementing a counter it just reports the current value every time you kill something and kong records it. Of course this doesn’t allow to track how many mobs one has killed today or this week (the value is 0 from the beginning of the period until you kill something when it becomes equal to your current in-game counter) but on the other hand it guarantees that even if in-game and Kong scores go out of sync because of connectivity problems preventing the game from submitting these statistics to kong, kong leaderboard will be updated with a correct value as soon as a mob kill is successfully reported.

I actually do think there is a problem with the kong leader boards….go and check mobs defeated for today/this week/all-time and compare…not sure if it’s always been like that as I never check it.

The values are equal to what the in-game rankings screen shows. What’s wrong with that?

Could be worse. Some people find it amusing when someone’s feelings can be “hurt” by a single line of Javascript. Alberto might appreciate that if he weren’t away. I don’t. I simply stated what I believe is true:
1. Any values provided and stored by DW server (level, faction/arena points, mob/PvP wins, etc.) are fairly reliable. Well, not as reliable as a Swiss bank but manipulating them would require hacking the DW server which is quite unlikely to happen and even if that happens, the Playmage team would soon fix everything back to normal. This makes them valid candidates for a competition if someone really needs that sense of achievement in a browser-based game.
2. Any values displayed in the Kongregate leaderboard are absolutely unreliable because any client is allowed to post any value to that leaderboard. This makes any competition based on them absolutely pointless – you can never know whether someone 200 points above you has actually earned these points in the game or changed the value just for lulz.
And yes, that is my opinion. Of course the world doesn’t revolve around it but it is rational and proved in practice. Any rational objections against it?

I remember 1 player who use to play and he misted like crazy and must of opened a ton of chests but his score on leaderboard never submitted. He even contacted kingk and tried everything he said and still his scores weren’t submitting. So Kong high scores aren’t always reliable.

Not to mention those players who open DW with a direct link without opening kong page – their scores are not submitted to kong at all. And not to mention chests are not recorded if they contain crystals.

Interesting to see the it doesnt concern me so it’s useless mentality, why is this viewpoint so prevalent now a days? Someone obviously cared and got hurt by it; that should be enough

If something doesn’t result in anything useful, it is useless. If multiple posts on a user’s profile are just multiple posts of a single link and the 5 crystals/day sharing limit is still in place, they are useless. As simple as that.

Actually Galaxy, you don’t need to be the server admin to get access to the server data and change a couple of values.

Yeah, if the DW server has a bug and you know how to exploit this bug for your advantage. However, when this exploit is revealed, it is fixed and those using it to gain advantage get their punishment. So the values maintained by the DW server look trustworthy enough to me. On the other hand, Kong has NO means of validating the leaderboard or achievement data. You just tell it “I scored 1000000000 on this leaderboard” or “I got this badge” and it records it. There is no hacking at all, Kong leaderboard just trusts the client, hence the “random dude with a chalk” metaphor.

As I already mentioned in another thread, that depends on whether multiple crystal sharing actually happened, allowing more than 5 crystals a day to be claimed from the same player. If it did, that looks like an exploit (but why would someone using an exploit draw unnecessary attention to themselves by also posting multiple claim links on their profile?) that must be dealt with. If it didn’t, multiple claim link posts on the profile page make no difference from the game perspective, so nobody cares.

And yes, you can do the EXACT same thing with the in-game content. It’s all about changing a number. You know, all those mobs you spent hours and hours on getting could be fixed by someone in a minute. To justify cheating ‘cause it’s easy to do is just plain stupid. Oh and please, tell me why didn’t you do it with your main character? Too afraid you might get banned or something? Come on, grow up and play fair.

The difference between in-game content and kong leaderboards is that in the former case that “someone” who can change the numbers in a minute must be the server’s admin, not just some random dude on the internet while in the latter case that “someone” is actually “anyone”. You are right, competing in clicking buttons to raise some counter on some server on the internet is stupid but when ANY of your competitors can just take a piece of chalk and write any score on the leaderboard, it becomes far more stupid :)

You go for levels and FW points. I go for chests opened. What’s the difference?

1. Leveling unlocks new cool things in the game. Kong leaderboard records don’t.
2. There are clear finite goals for leveling. Like reaching the level cap or becoming strong enough to survive Mormo’s attacks and grind her for positron items. No finite goal in kong leaderboards.
3. Look at chests leaderboard now :) Can you do the same trick with levels, faction points or anything in the game itself? ;)

Originally posted by Mamaa:

Wasn’t there something fixed with the update? I’m still getting +2 items for 2nd places at poseidon even as lv99. ty kingK

It was fixed. From the update announcement:
Atlantis Improvements
Increased Poseidon’s exp in Atlantis by 20%
Players no longer need obtain a weapon right below the extended level to take advantage of the extended upgrade chance.

It doesn’t say lv99 would not be getting +2 items anymore.

Oh and I’m already looking forward to see what you plan for 4-9 and I’m kinda freaked out about how strong those bosses must be since the #3 already slaughter me like I was just a little ant.

I just hope these use instakill mechanics… I don’t mind non-instakill raid bosses and since the last expansion (Atlantis) used instakill mechanics there was no surprise this one adds more old school raid bosses :) But to be honest, Hell bosses are just like Isendel and mine bosses – a huge coin sink. It’s not the sort or area to use 5k mists a day in a crazy weekend grind, just a place to try your luck for extended positron gear once your level is high enough to survive Mormo’s stronger attack. Getting positron gear without having to compete against all the strongest players in DW is good (will take me a few weeks to reach the level when Mormo is survivable but that’s just a matter of time… or 42 gems to raise con if my patience fails me) but that’s not something that can change the usual playing pattern – misting in FW during weekends, earning coins in invasion during weekdays. And I guess I am not the only one who feels the same about this update :(

If the level cap is raised as soon as a few player reach it, then it’s not really a level cap.

True…
But why would you desire a level cap? What’s the point?
If it’s not a technical limitation, from a player’s perspective I can’t see any reason at all to essentially end the game at level 100…

I’m only level 94 so it doesn’t affect me, but it seems like a very odd concept…

I believe it IS a technical limitation among other things. If I remember correctly, when the level cap was 99, the experience requried to get to lv99 was equal to the maximum signed 64-bit integer (2^63-1). When lv100 was added, the experience required to get from 99 to 100 was equal to what it takes to get to lv99, making the total experience accumulated by lv100 equal to maximum unsigned 64-bit number (2^64-1). Looks like the next level cap increase would require something more than 64-bit integers to store experience counters. Might be quite a challenge.

Btw, for those of you who haven’t noticed it: The server patching reset the mist count. Too bad we didn’t get this during a Saturday, but hey, you can’t always get what you want, right? hahaha :P

Don’t forget patches also reset claimed crystal counter. Another 8 crystals for those who claimed theirs early :)
BTW, what was fixed in this patch? The announcement was not updated.

are you a mage? prob not, and I hope you are enjoying the damage boost you just got :P cuz ya know, value -. def is mostly worthless to mages, once you get enough to avoid physical hits it is only good for such epic differences like 100 def reduces 1500 dmg from an 80k attack.

but anyway thedog89 im glad you like you very high def - if that makes you happy. 240 def and 304 base con or 600 def and 340 con(you didnt specify if you used gear to get it that high). one cost way more lp/resources than the other… I let you think about that -.

Defense is easily built without using lp. Some people choose to enhance their armor or ring after they have maxed their weapon. My ring has 600+ enhances on it. I let you think about it.

If the leaderboard is to be decided over faction points, then make it so that the war is available 24/7.

The current war mode can be left unchanged, just keep it going after its finished with no actual guild points going towards the total.

People who cant always play at the weekend are penalised and cant compete. (retention of players when lvl capped).

People who can’t play on weekends are penalized anyway because bonus events occur on weekends. I hope you are not suggesting disabling weekend events so that noone feels penalized?

Topic: Dream World / Energy

Positron ring itself is not much harder to get compared to crystal ring, it’s getting to lv98 which is the minimum level for getting positron items that takes quite a while.
