Topic: KingsRoad / Arenas Hotfix - 10/7/14

Attack speed hackers have become a real problem. It was one thing when they did it in their own story dungeons. But now because of competitive aspect of arena it is having direct negative impact on me. Already a bunch of my friends and guild-mates are quitting the game. Guys who spent real money on gems.

If Rumble doesn’t fix this very soon they will loose another paying customer.

Reporting doesn’t seem to work just encountered same hacker who I reported 3 days ago.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] [To Devs] Lack of Balance Due To Map Blindspot

I agree with raa275 the map balance is an issue. I know in game players make comments like “crap top base or yeah bottom base” just surprised no one made post till now.

The bottom base has much better lines of sight when attacking and you don’t have the shortcut menu or minimap blocking part of your view. As Ant ship player lining up my shots on turrets out side of their range is critical to success. Having the minimap block my view is a killer since now i have to get in range of turret and then backup most likely taking damage in the process and giving more time for enemy to come to defend. If facing newbies not much of issue be if it a close game with equally skilled players i rather have the bottom spawn point. Then my view of enemy base is not obstructed.

I know changing map layout not feasible right now. But what about making it so from point of view of the player, we have bottom view looking up at the enemy base on top. This way each team has the same angle and viewpoints.

Masa might have an attitude that people don’t like.

But he is one of the best players out there. Giving him tips on how to play is pretty pointless. Its like giving Skydark tips on how to play ant ship if you even seen him play you just shutup and get out the way.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] ELO Rating System: Reduce Rating For Exiting The Match

This is just based on my personal experience your’s may differ.

When a player doesn’t have ops means they are level 1 can’t get use them or worst are high enough level and don’t know they can.

So if they are level 1 they don’t have much experience. Probably do not know the skills of ship they choose or know what each ship skills are and how best to counter with their ship. And finally they don’t know who the good players are on enemy team and their play style. Certain players i do not face 1v1 (unless i have 100% energy and they at 20% or lower) because i know they would destroy me, better retreat to teammates or avoid them.

Now if a player is high enough level and doesn’t know about ops that just proves how limited their knowledge of the game is best to avoid teaming up with those clueless players. You will say everyone is new once which i agree with. But even when i was new player i didn’t go 0-10 or 2-15+, those are just terrible players. Around 3-4 death something in your head should go off and make you think what am i doing wrong.

From my experience of seeing new players complain about ship or skills that they don’t understand only adds to the negative view veteran players have about them. I think playing on solo practice mode to victory condition with 3 different ships should be requirement before new player can join multiplayer battle. The reason it needs to be victory condition is so player can’t just start and quit solo to get credit. It also exposes new player to basic tactics and hopefully understanding of ship skills. Multiple ship requirement since skills and play style differ depending on the ship.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] ELO Rating System: Reduce Rating For Exiting The Match

I think that been some confusion or misinformation going around.

First off once you are in a match even if you leave before match ends, when your team loses you take a loss to your ELO score and win %. So quitting match will NOT protect your ranking.

I don’t understand why raa275 would want to penalize players for leaving the match lobby before the match starts unless he finds joy in forcing good players to be teamed up with terrible players.

Release Notes – 0.4.0.2012.10.11.2
Friday, October 12, 2012 – 12:50AM
General Updates

Added Master Assister Achievement: Earn 10 Assists in a match (repeatable)
Added Tower Defense Achievement: Kill an enemy pilot near your own towers (repeatable)
___________________________________________________________________________

First off thanks for undoing the network code that made game unplayable for few days cause of the warping lag.

Next great job making an assist achievement that gives bang hopefully will encourage bit more team play.

But what is up with tower defense achievement giving 0 bang. Whats the point of a repeatable achievement that gives no bang.

In second grade i learned no matter the value * 0 = 0. Pointless fix it or get rid off it.

“Please reduce player ratings by 3 for every match they leave—both before the game begins”

I completely disagree with this TERRIBLE IDEA.

Penalizing players to play a match they KNOW they will lose before it even begins because they have seen how good opponents are, or how bad their teammates, or combination of both is just not fun. I played games for fun not torture.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] Regarding Balance, a Peek at Ship Statistics

A very rational and logical explanation behind ship balance. However this is the interwebz no room for logic and reason get out of here! J/K :)

On serious note K/D is one measurement, there 2 other factor I consider when choosing a ship. Winning and biggest factor is Bang! earning potential. I will sacrifice my K/D ratio to get a win since that gives me ELO points and bang. Now that assists will finally give bang SS starting to look appealing. For me a match that takes more than 15min and I earn less than 50bang I consider a failure. I consider it successful match when i win and earn 80-100+ bang a match not counting 1 time achievements or the daily 50b reward. I played over 400 matches and there a definitely ships that I don’t choose since their bang earning is weak, angel fire and turbo hawk come to mind.

Side note with angel fire replace fiery death skill having to die to use a skill is stupid.

Since you guys track structure kills, drone kills, and kill streaks. Setup a filter of only lvl 30 commanders and see how much bang each ship earns per match and win % that might give a clearer picture of which ship have stronger influence in matches.

Topic: Swords & Potions / petition for adding time penalty before joining guild

There are 2 large flaws with this thread.

A) Edgebee developers do NOT read kongregate forums.
B) Five of posters so far are all the same person with multiple accounts.

Let me put it another way.

I don’t believe you.

You were wrong on twice already. Prove it with screenshot showing npc offering a token recipe.

Topic: Swords & Potions / English Merchant Alliances Ultimate guide to riches

Skill seedling is not a token recipe it is just trapped behind a token recipe.

Hurricane scroll is not token recipe notice how the scrolls ahead of it have glow outline it while hurricane does not. Compare it to absolute zero scroll which is a token and has glow.


Holy sword is a token recipe but i doubt you got it from npc seller, since you are wrong about the other 2 examples. Mostly likely you are confusing the Angelwing sword which does have glow around it but it was added during the sept 1st district update. All those added recipes evasive armor, opel helmet, forsaken have glow but are NOT token recipes.

This is why noobs should not be giving out advice.

Necro you do realize that all 3 of us are over lvl 400 and have been played this game for atleast a month.

We might have a little bit of experience. Plus most of this info is taken straight out of SP chat room #1 which we all hang out in.

They do NOT offer token recipes.

Unless you can name 1 token recipe that you got from npc please stop spreading false information. Just because recipe uses rare materials does not make it a token recipe.

About token recipes : Don`t worry keep leveling you`ll get them from npcs eventually ! they come after level 100.

This is wrong you will never get token recipes from npc.

None of the recipes that you bought are token recipes. Some non-token recipes are locked behind token recipes as you correctly stated.

That is how it was before the sept 6th update just wanted to confirm nothing changed since then.

@simkin what token recipes did u get from customers? From my experience customers do no sell token recipes.

The rest of your data analysis is correct.

For those reading this you need minimum of 100 points in adventure the more the better. If you have less then that don’t complain that your success rate is bad. Also learn what items you can substitute in place of ones that require token recipes to make.
