Topic: Brave Tales / WHY current PVP matching system is bad ,and possible ways to fix it.

well i doubt players will leave the game but it is a serious issue . Its very easy to exploit this pvp system and some ppl proven it. (not that there is much to prove) Basic idea is to keep your player power relatively low ,while having strong team at same time. It can be done either by upgrading to red level warior and animalist and not giving any gear to anybody else or making low power yelow gear for 3 ppl and not leveling or few other ways. I belive the idea behind this matching system is to allow free players to have some fun and not be masacrated by heavy spenders but at current state of affairs it doasnt serve any purpose and is plainly unfair to honest players who have around 60-80 power because they are mostly screwed by ppl who abuse pvp. It also annoys evrybody else . And no its not self regulating system like you hoped Avaloid ;p.

but now, just give me 8/0/0 ones! cannt afford them with such a low rate for slots..

You can easily afford 5/0/0 lol , realy dont need better ,just some luck with slots on yellow made from them.

I cant see any problem with supplies (you have now around 40k per day on higher levels and there is still 2 empty slots for misions for new heroes) , you just need to manage them in reasonable way . :D

Topic: Brave Tales / Targetting

UNfortunately ,currently targeting system is “player unfriendly” . SImple fix to this problem is to select your own heroes only from their pictures. This way ,when you try to target something and miss it, it will not change to another of your heroes, and u can imiedietly try again.

Topic: Brave Tales / SIMPLE GUIDE for CRAFTING

Mortitian wrote something about this but its overcomplicated for many ppl and they keep asking so here how you do it:

Step one : Do a lot of supply missions to level up and get keys, spend some gold to unlock inventory slots.

Step two : use wooden keys to get plenty gear of kind u like.

Craft blue gear even from worst crap ,u should get + 5 blue for just 250 resources. If it is 5/0/0 (one with 2 empty slots) then add 2 level 4 runes and u will have +13 blue item otherwise scrap it.

Step three: from +13 and +12 blue items u will get +15 yellow, if it has any empty slots u add there level 5 runes and u ready to craft red gear.

THATS all ;p.

IF you want to have better blue items ,u can use 3/0 and 4/0 basic items with level 3 runes ,that would give you +8 item ,that can be +12 with one slot or +16 with 2 slots ,if u add level 4 runes, thats much more expensive way to craft them though.

Topic: Brave Tales / WHY current PVP matching system is bad ,and possible ways to fix it.

Problem description:
3 strongest heroes always comes first on board for PVP.
Oponents can be choosed from -15% to +30% of player power.
In practice it means players who upgrade only 1 ,2 or 3 heroes and completly abandon rest have unfair advantage over those who tries to make balanced team and upgrade all evenly.
WHY? because those those 3 strong heroes are matched with 3 much weker guys and reap them to shreds. And such player always has weaker oponents available for pvp.
Current nr1 guy in pvp list has 67 power ,but 40 of those 67 is in single animalist.

SO what could be done?
I can think now about 2 adjustments. First count only 3 strongest heroes for pvp power matching ,and change order of them coming on board in such way that strongest hero comes last to battle.
Also change range of possible oponents from -15%30% to -20%20%. That should help a lot.

Topic: Brave Tales / Guess the Skill contest

First skill is : Vamipre slayer – it covers whole field with wooden sticks and instantly kills all enemies with vampire skill over 30%.

Seckond skill: Hangover – target have to imiedietly move to top right corner and take aspirin to feel better.

Third skill : Arrow ladder – archer shoots plenty of arrows at nearby tree ,creating ladder ,then he climbs on the tree and pretends to be gorilla causing all enemies to stop figting and watch him with amusement.

Topic: Ashtaria / Free Play Guide

ANOTHER much better GUIDE:
DO not waste hero points in any talents they are not worth it at all, put evrything in spells.
Most important spells are 3 first red spells ,u should have them at least at 8, 6,6 those spells kills monsters even if u have poor wepon .
Next comes blue spells ,hmm rather useless unless u want play “mage” class called here guardian.
Yellow spells – also not especialy important ,but better than blue ones because u can heal urself , if u want them go for 2, 6,1 in first 3 yellow.
Green spells – those are dedicated to players who want roleplay as archer first one is aoe but rather weak in comparison to red 3, still it can be usefull if u max it to 10, next is buff that also can be of some use maxed to 10 but its not esential rest is not so good ,but if u insist to be pure archer then u can go for 2 first red and all green .

WHAT to buy for diamonds?
you can eventualy get free blue wepons 20 level strong but need to clear almost all curent content for them.
You can also have 25 level trinket and 32 level ring from endless mode and plenty wepons also – they are same good as blue ones.
there are city quests demanding producing resources in city buildings that will eventualy grant you :
level 12 purple gloves,
level 19 blue boots , but u need to buy some blue boots earlier ,unfortunately i dont remember exactly which ones,maybe somebody can help, because u should buy them.
something from level 20 purple wepon called “unholy rod” i guess it changes it into few levels better one.
Bundles seems nice when u hit those 15-20-30 level but theres no way u can have then enough diamonds to buy them so.. dont bother with bundless.
Just save all diamonds for top gear ,eventualy its not a bad idea to get Yourself purple archer set from levels 25-28 ,rest of gear u can have from endless mode and u shoul be ablke to buy also top weapon.
As to weapons Bows and swords have better damage than “mage” wepons so u better decide on one of them. Currently best what u can equip is 39 level purple bow and 40 level “champion” purple set.
Why bow? because it gives stamina and chamion armors are imo worst of all – i would love to rather buy 40 level axe and 40 level archer armor .
chamion gear support plenty of dodge some strenght some constitution and crappy HP. If u use wepon u have quite enough of dodge and strenght but u badly need more stamina and that can come either from archer armor directly or mage armor via wisdom . MAge armors are also not bad -supplies lot of crit and some stamina.
Hope this will help you guys.

Topic: Ashtaria / Ashtaria - a message from devs :)

Nah pvp is not esential for game to have very good rating . I used to play grinns tale for over a year and still come back there from time to time and theres no pvp. Just All those things that are supposed to be implemented when game reaches better ratings should be instead made right now to achiev this goal. Its realy bad thinking imo to give customers poor product and demand from them to give it high notes so it could improve :D All companies around the world do it oposite way and there is probably reason for this…

But i really suggest to give players a direct control over quality and effect displayed in games, i will surely sacrifice some effects and quality to play faster and a lot of players will simply be really happy to have those options.

Yes plz, simply add "turn off animations " button near turn off sound and fx and that will be great.

Also could you adjust talents in combat tree to be % buffs? ,because they are soon becoming obsolete when players make levels." Tireless" “defender” and “berserk” skills should be 1%-10% percentage buffs if they would have to be usefull,otherwise this whole tree is not worth spending single hero point.

if u have to go to cementary or candy land for fame then its not easy. Fame train can give u 500-600 fame in 30-40 min if u will kill only 1 god and dont use any pots nor skill. No idea how u could get fame faster.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / CURRENT PRICE GUIDE

new players have often problems with understanding items value so there are few hints to not be cheated in trade.

Ingame money for trade are potions that improve stats, you can buy evrything for them.
Basic money unit is def potion
Life potions are most expensive and are worth 5-6 def
Mana are worth something like 3,5 def (better dont use them ,they are not convenient)
atak has same value as def
rest of potions are worth 5 for 2 def

Skills: t3 skull and t3 quiver have some value becuase they use little mana rest t3 are worthless
t4 skull and spell and shield can be sold for spd (also poison on very rare ocasion) rest are worthless
t5 : mage spell is easy to sell for def and sometimes even can be sold for 2 def, shield sells for 2 def and sometimes more, quiver scepter,cloak tome poison, helmet are worth def but not easy to sell, skull for spd, ninja star and mystic orb are worthless.
t6 skull is worth something like 3 def ,rest 1-2 life. not sure about mystic orb probably also cheap one.SHield of Ogmur is very expensive some ppl pay 5-8 life for it.

Armors:
t9 robe and leather can be sometimes sold for spd if there arent t10 around t9 plate armor is worthless
t10 armors cost spd ,t11 armors def, t12 around 3 def+ t13 2 life sometimes cheaper.

Weapons: t8 staff of horror can be sometimes sold for spd especialy together with master robe, rest is worthless.
t9 wepons cost SPD except katana and wand – worthless
t10 cost def except katana and wand – spd
t11 staff is worth 3 def ,sword 5 def, wand and katana 1 def, dagger and bow around 2 def+
t12 wepons cost around 2 life except wand and katana 1 life . And sword can cost more.

Eggs : eggs are worthles if u want to sell them ,but sometimes if somebody wants to buy specific egg and u have it, u can get good money.Most expensive used always to be human eggs -def but they arent easy to sell.

Items for feeding pets:
200 feed power can be sometimes sold for spd like t11 katanas
300 feed power are worth def
450 treasure -2 def
600 treasure 3 def
over those ppl often overpay and those items dont have fixed prices.Also many of those who sells 450-600 treasures demands unreasonable payment.

Dont take crappy items(or ones u dont need) as payment, if u have valuable item for sale -pots only.
Dont pay more than 2 life for anything .
Try to not die and feed your pet at least to maxed uncomon level and you will be fine.
Good luck and have fun.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / SO maybe take advantage of latast grevayard event and ban spam bots?

and why not? It takes 20 min to make level 10. Obviously bots cant do it. Thats just a minor inconvenience for normal players and most would gladly agree to it .
Moreover “people trying to get items” are those who have level 20 and are farming gods ,not those who are begging for items and annoying evrybody. So such a solution has double benefits.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Starpires] Feedback appreciated

You are missing the point: Nuke atack is waste of your turn. So to improve it it needs either to not cause to lose normal atack when launched (player would have 1 missile atack and 1 normal atack per turn) or as i said before choose for nukes to either target planets or fleet.
Why ? Let me describe what happening. Weaker player tries to use nukes as “detterent” shoots all his nukes in 5 turns at stronger player . Stronger player loses 5x 500= 2,5k planets. Then is using his 5 normal atacks to steal 2500 more planets from weaker player. So he not gained anything in those 5 turns, yes. But player who used nukes not only not gained anything but also losed a lot of planets not to mention his army had been masacrated on the way. And much better choice for him would be to atack pirates for those 5 turns and then he would gain something from them while having council protection. Each nuke atack just drops protection.

I belive that nuke atacks are currently underpowered. If i knew from the begining how weak they are i would not research them at all. (pro tip for new players ;p)
If i have a choice to normal atack or nuke i will always choose to atck, because nukes can only destroy not significant amount of enemy planets and i am losing my atack in this turn for nothing.
I sugest to allow targeting enemy fleet with nukes instead of planets, then they could be a bit more worth of attention.

Looks like our guild pvp battle cant happen since something like 3 days . It is against “rest in peace” and at “12:32” . Maybe its because nobody in other guild clicked participation button.
