Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Arena Rewards Petition

I just happened to come back to see if people were still playing this game. I’m probably one of the longest tenured players here, but I had been sparsely playing. Over the past several weeks, I decided to get up to 65k each week just for the chance at 3 different Ultra cards.

Then Monday came, and aside from removing the DP, they completely nerfed the cards you get in the arena. Last straw for me as there literally was no point in even playing this game at all anymore.

As far as I recall, there wasn’t even a shred of an announcement about screwing over the players again by the incompetent and slimy developers. Why anyone would spend money to line these buffoons’ pockets is beyond me. Just quit, because you’ll end up far more satisfied than having to deal with the garbage Frima Studios puts out in an attempt to take your money.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / This new team system

I like that the new system rewards cheaters even more AND encourages them to have multiple accounts. The Arena team system sounds cool on the outside, but when introduced into an already corrupt and broken environment, it just gives more reasons for cheaters to continue to do what they do and get rewarded for it.

But if people are still stupid enough to spend money on an inferior product, then we can’t fault the developers for continuing to do nothing about it.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Scummy developers

So glad I wasted 5DP on some stupid powerup I accidentally clicked when trying to hit the right arrow to scroll to the next window. How are there still not confirm buttons on all DP purchases in this game?

It’s been out for over a year, and people have been complaining about it since then.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / greedy and lazy devs

The developers are simply terrible at their job and as such resort to any sort of money-grubbing scam they can work up to lure in suckers. It wasn’t always this way in the game, but it took a hard left turn in that direction before the Halloween event debacle. The absolute morons continuing to pay for a broken product are equally complicit and deserve to throw away their money for an inferior service.

A year or so ago, Game Informer wrote an article about 8 warning signs of bad free to play games that are solely out to steal your money. What a surprise that this game incorporates the first 5 of those.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / REMOVE WINS

What I find funnier is how the last update from the developers through konamikg was that the previously banned people would be reinstated. This week, the weekly scores were higher than they have ever been in kongregate’s version history (that is with old previous cheaters in the early going setting the weekly high score), and it’s so ridiculously and blatantly apparent that the cheaters simply don’t care about being known because there are no repercussions to doing it.

The product is beyond completely broken. To even accept money from people dumb enough to spend it thinking they are getting a fair product is fraudulent.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Patchnotes 01-29-2014 + COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

The fact that there are new Arena rewards with the state of the Arena system stinks. Trident Dragion certainly seems to be the least useful (even though they managed to create an unbreakable loop bug again. congrats). Splendid Rose is absolutely like Sasuke. It can grow in power a bit, but it’s not quite on the level of Insect Queen. Genomix is definitely the best of the bunch.

I really hope people don’t believe “losing intentionally” is the way the trolls are cheating the system. They are messing around with far more than that including currency, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they also mess around with DP if some of the other other accusations are true.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / How to Improve the Arena

The Arena is a broken and terrible system to start that essentially invites cheaters with open arms.

First, they give away an extremely limited set of cards that can be obtained nowhere else in game and are often quite powerful.

Second, it’s PvP which always invites cheating.

Third, as mentioned, you have to play perfectly in order to achieve maximum results (streaks) and not be done in by bad luck or a bad matchup. Obviously the easiest way to achieve this is by cheating and ensuring that you never have that problem.

Yeah he wasn’t legit. I would bet there were more from then too. Luckily it was only 1-2 players blatantly cheating, so people thought they were just “really good”. Now, it’s pretty much everyone going for the top prizes. It’s such a horrible system in place for the developers to reward the “top” players where it encourages cheating. There should never have been this type of PvP reward system in place to start. Arena should have strictly been rewards based on weekly score like the ones through 100k.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Energy is pointless

Your math is incorrect as 5*50 = 250 energy. Unless you happen to be factoring in paying DP to take 2x the amount of gifts per day. If you’re doing that, then you’re crazy too.

All the gifts pretty much suck, but energy is free all the time. 250 energy is roughly 2 hours worth of time. Stars aren’t going anywhere and have no time restriction.

Players that gift energy on Kongregate should be lined up and punched. It’s such a useless gift considering how fast it refills on Kongregate.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Cheaters in Arena

Talk is cheap. They’ve talked about dealing with cheaters and “cheating not being tolerated” for months. Now they will “investigate” allegations reported by the users. Like it’s really that freaking difficult to figure out especially with morons like Hai, supremacy, fate, the tiens, etc blatantly posting that they are cheating.

The cheaters pretty much have no fear of repercussions. Having a competitive arena was simply an open invitation for people like this. I feel bad for people who foolishly paid money to play this game with the hope that they would have been able to succeed.

Aren’t we all fortunate though that instead of worrying about fighting with his credit cards for the “fraudulent charges”, supremacy3393 is here on Kongregate trying to clear his “good name”.

Also, how lucky that supremacy had people “hack” his account and then try to save his name posting how he was legit and not a cheater prior to giving the account back to the “real” supremacy.

Honestly, you cannot make up this type of stupidity.

I would like to clear some things up so I stop receiving so much hatred. My account was stolen and used by someone else to make the top three on Yu-Gi-Oh BAM. He used my credit card to purchase a lot of DP and coins. I do not know whether or not he cheated but I can assure you that I am no cheater. I will tell you that since I recovered my account, my power ups feature no longer works correctly as if it were altered by some “hack.” I want to make It abundantly clear that the account Supremacy3393 is under its original owner’s control once again (me) and I do not plan on cheating. Thanks guys:)

the real supremacy:)

Those dastardly credit card thieves who steal cards to play Kongregate games and then give the accounts back. Happens all the time.

I guess you’ll be asking BAM to strip you of all your cheated winnings since of course now you’re the “real” owner and would never cheat. I feel like my computer might explode from too much sarcasm.

I said it earlier, but cheaters are freaking hilarious! They act like everyone in the fan base is as stupid as the developers. I hope supremacy3393 keeps posting here trying to deny that he’s cheating. It’s comic gold!

I LOVE when cheaters try to defend their behavior and antics only to get beat down by facts and logistics. Thanks for supremacy3393 for outing himself as yet another pathetic cheater who needs to “win” at a free to play game.

You can blame these pathetic excuses of “gamers”, but you also need to blame the developers for having no control over their own game and making the “end game” a PVPish atmosphere with no ability or skills to moderate it.

You can farm coin in chapter 24 (ambush with 2400 LP). You build deck to win 1 0r 2 hit, you can earn ~70K coin per hour. I use auto click and auto key to do that. You can search Google ;D

No you can’t because even 1 hitting the ambush, you still have to wait for the loads (before and after each battle), AI “thinking time”, animations, finish screen, and then you deal with the increasing lag due to all the memory leaks in this game.

70,000 coins means nearly 6 duels a minute or 1 win every 10 seconds, and that is not possible with all the above game slowdowns mentioned.

Another example of a cheater trying to say something is possible when it is not. People used to say you could pay for arena refreshes (fully) with the coins from CP packs until that was completely proved to be a lie too.

Exactly, it doesn’t finance weekly top 3 runs (and doesn’t even come remotely close), so I am entirely right.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Cheaters in Arena

haha, I happened to look at the top 3 for last week in the arena and the top 2 are cheaters. It’s hilarious how bad this game is.

The #1 person was someone I reported months ago with screen shots as the person was abusing the LP/Attack cheat engine hack. He shouldn’t even have an account let alone be able to get the top place in the arena.

The #2 person HaiDangN who just posted above is equally hilarious. All the cheaters say it doesn’t take time/money to play the game which is simply completely false. 1) This game takes a ridiculous amount of time to play 2) There is no way to get tons of coins without purchasing them in some fashion. That’s not an opinion, that’s fact based on math with the new arena buy tiers.

I don’t know the #3 player at all, so I have no comment either way.

Regular players paying money into this game are simply flushing away their money because it is not run well.

They are definitely a lazy and poorly put together team of developers. Small teams shouldn’t run 24/7 free to play games because they cannot support it, and anyone paying for the game is pretty much wasting their money on a bad product.

I used to think this was a better F2P option than others because Konamik was active on the forum and seemed to be listening to players.

Then I started to report bugs and cheaters to him. For cheaters, it was the “Thanks we’ll look into it” spiel. For bugs, one time he requested I take screen shots of everything wrong in my game which ended up being 40 screen shots. Didn’t get a follow up or anything on the matter. Not even a token thank you/tiny gift for doing their job for them and playing with a broken game.

And don’t forget the Contagion event which was the biggest failure I have ever seen. They weren’t even remotely close to knowledgeable about how big their fanbase is and created an event with rewards that were impossible to get. To add insult to injury, in the BAM tower, you can play against one of the better Virus cards that players had no shot at getting. They just suck.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Lag Reduction Possibility

A lot of the lag comes from all the memory leaks in the game (especially in story mode). The game is so slow because of all the animations that take far too long to play out (even at 8x speed). There is also extra lag on AI turns because the AI is trying to figure out the exact perfect scenario each time to place its cards to win or survive which results in extremely annoying matches where the AI has no shot at winning and is simply stalling.

The AI should be built with a surrender function.

I’m not sure how the AI picked the 3 spells in the bottom right corner as I haven’t seen those used yet against me through all the BAM HQ runs. I guess they figured: “No monsters yet, let’s not ruin it.”
