Topic: Technical Support / My Playlist showing games that I have removed.

I have noticed this as well.

It seems the MY PLAYLIST section of the GAMES pop-up menu shows me two games I added to my playlist first. It did not update for weeks, even though I regulary add and remove games to and from my playlist.

While it is not a big hassle (I can just go to http://www.kongregate.com/my_playlist and see the games there), it would be great if it worked and I could get to my playlist games in one click.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Bug Reports

I recently got 30 cards, so the game “forced me” to try the Arena. I got to the deck creation screen and hit an end – I have exactly 30 cards, but 3 of them are rares, so I am unable to complete the deck. There is no other button I can click, so going back is also not an option.

I would appreciate if you remade your tutorial into a skippable form. While I understand you want to teach new players the fundamentals of your game, it only slows downs and annoys those who are already familiar.

Reloading fixed this for me.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / crit balancing in drafts

The correct amount based on testing we conducted in game and coordinated on forums the crit procs seem to be 5% base and 1% per stat point in both Agility and Intellect – this gives Sent a 5% base crit, Pyro a 6% base crit and Assassin 7% base crit.

The stat bonuses also seem to be capped quite early, as even with really high agility you never get too much crits.

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / gold packs

I have never seen a gold pack with three rares. If it indeed does happen then it’s really rare (and unless I see a screenshot, I will continue to doubt it). Since there has been a community effort on the official forums and people opened hundreds of packs, I guess it would have happened to some of them – and it did not.

Also Gold Pack can NOT containt 4 C and 1 U – that would be a Silver Pack or Bronze Pack.

Thanks once more, Arialianilus! Added right away!

There’s a line of black pixels @ the bottom… and some of the cyan pixels in the Sunderer background are visible.

Thanks, didn’t notice this. The backgound is probably just a pixel off, will be an easy fix. Will get it sorted out on Monday!

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Card generator

Thanks, Arialianilus. I will add it right away! The other one can wait, I just thought since it’s different from all the other cards it would be nice to have as well.

I would love to add foils as well, but since I have very low photoshop skills, it’s hard for me to separete the foil overlay from the card itself (I have tried and failed horrbily). If anyone would like to give it a try and create a transparent foil “overlay” that looks like the one used in game, I would be happy to add it into the generator. No foils for now though :)

EDIT: Promo cards added. Enjoy :)

If anyone with a higher level of photoshop skills then me would be so kind, I would love to get those two cleared up so I can add them to the generator (by clearing up I mean removing all texts and both lower icons – set one and type one):

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Card generator

The tips are nice, but I think they are little “off” for legendaries. For example a “defense skipping” card should not be even a 3/6, but more like 2/2 or 3/2 etc. Plus NPCs should have a little bit lower stats than an attack of same rarity and reflect the usability. Most legendaries are WAY below what you used – the NPCs are 5/5 or 6/6 or similar.

I would just say “use your common sense” or in some cases “write your first idea, then halve the numbers, then halve them again and you have a balanced card” :D

However I think the stats are not the important thing anyway – the new and inovative effects are what counts and what the devs are probably looking for. They will tweak the numbers to fit into game anyway, so don’t bother with them too much and let your “creative juices” flow :)

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Clash o Dragons premium

One of the premises of this game is that everything in the game is available to free players (yes, most of the real good premium content takes a lot of saving and dedication if you want it for free). I don’t think any “premium” content besides what is already in the game will be introduced any time soon.

Fixed. Space was not the problem, apostrophe was. Thanks for finding it and pointing it out ;)

The ranges weren’t working (and noone told me). Now it should be working fine ;)

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Card generator

Due to popular demand, you can now add ranges as damage or absorption (in the form of X-X ie single digit numbers only).

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Who Wants to Become an NPC?

I think there is one thing that some of the above posters seem to forget – the contest was for a new NPC card (like Elyssa, Marcellus, Yule Tribesman or your humble-yet-irreplaceable Alchemist), not a new NPC protagonist (like Hugh and Tessa).

If it was a protagonist contest, there would probably be more arguments in favor of “useful” fighter and mage types. As it was however, I think the choice of interesting “unique” characters is a good one and will enhance and diversify the NPC pool – even though how usefull those new NPCs will be remains to be seen, they will certainly have interesting stories and flavor texts and encounters :)

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / applying to a clan

That may not be the case – I applied to one clan and since the leader stopped responding and my application was still pending after a week, I joined another clan without any problems at all.

Eight update:
+ now you can “fit” the whole images into the card instead of picking which part to add – use the Fit to card checkbox for that :)

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / applying to a clan

Just a thought: Have you by any chance just left another clan? There seems to be a 24 hour (or so) window, where you can’t join a new clan after leaving your old one…

Topic: Clash of the Dragons / seems like energy timer is client side

Energy is definitely counted on server. The client can however easily get “out of sync”, so a refresh is recomended once in a while :)

Hi everyone, it seems there is some trouble with the SQL server at the moment. It’s being resolved and hopefully it will be up soon. Apologies for the trouble, unfortunately there is not much more I can do.

EDIT: Ok, it seems it’s back up now :)

gASK, the only thing I have about the generator that I’m not thrilled about is the cropping system. No matter how you try and move the box, it drags out on the diagonal. It’s fine for larger, square images, but for thinner, rectangular images it’s a killer. Now I just gotta figure out what I’m doing wrong in terms of getting all those images to show up.

Can you please elaborate a little bit more since I can’t seem to grasp what you meant by “it drags out on the diagonal” … perhaps you mean that it keeps the aspect ratio?

Your post also gave me an idea (or maybe that was what you meant) – I know some people would like to add a small square image to the middle of the card, so I’ll probably add “put in full” option that would make the image “fit in” and add black or white space in the remaining space.

@gASK The ability to edit/delete cards you’ve made would be nice, incase you made a mistake. Although it would require some form of login to prevent people from editing other peoples cards.

Yeah, I actually wanted to add that possibility from start, then scratched it as it would dissuade a lot of people from trying to create cards.

I will try to come up with something. In the meantime, if you want to delete / edit card, feel free to PM me. I’ll be happy to alter it in the DB directly.

Bump for new players.

Also to not be completely off-topic – look what I made!


detail

PS: If you have any suggestions regarding functions, layout or anything you would like me to add, feel free to post it. I have run out of ideas. I only have two:

- the comment thing, but that is in “thinking it over” phase right now
- layout cleanup and “face-lift”, but being no graphic, that’s gonna take some time

Seventh update:

+ RATING! Now you can rate yours and others cards (standard 1-5 stars system available on card detail page, 1 vote per person etc).
+ Card lists – for now basic ones – all cards, all new cards (eg. cards with less than 20 votes), all cards that you did not yet rate
+ Random card display – random, random new, random unrated-by-you cards

Now working on comments for future updates….
