Topic: Crazy Fairies / Bug Reports

When I opened a Daily Gift, there was nothing inside. I clicked the “Take All” button anyways to see if anything would happen, but I still got nothing.

Topic: Crazy Fairies / Bug Reports

I have a quest called “20 Quick Game”, and there’s a typo in the description where it says I need to do 30. Also, it says I have to click the Quick Game button… but sometimes when I do so, it takes me to a room, which doesn’t count towards the Quick Game quest.

For the quests that says I have to win X amount of games, losing also counts towards the goal. So someone can start a quick game, skip their first round, then teleport to the edge of the map and jump off.

A 24-hour clock, or at least a timer so that we know when the quests and PvE maps reset.

Edit: A way to tell between Free-For-All PvP maps and Team PvP maps.

Topic: Crazy Fairies / Bug Reports

When chatting to someone in private, it frequently says, “[ERROR]: Server is busy. Please try again later,” and it switches from private chat back to public chat. It gets annoying having to retype /username and rewrite the message. :P

Edit: I was in a room with a friend where he was the Master and I was ready. He suddenly went offline, making me the Master, and I was unable to check my bag (probably carried over from when I was ready).

Edit: When I started a new character, I immediately did a quest which gives 1200 experience. It brought me straight up to level 3 from level 1, and I only got 1 level-up box. I think I was suppose to get 2 boxes.

When hovering over the equipment you’re wearing, I don’t think 2 windows should be popping up to show the exact same item. I don’t think we need a 2nd window to show that our item is worth a few silver. xD

Someone left a game before the round started, and their corpse was standing straight up.

Edit: I think if you’ve completed all the quests and you go idle for a few seconds, an arrow will still pop up saying that there is a quest available.

Edit: When I’m in the lobby and hover my mouse over the top-part of my character, the stats are shown going downwards instead of upwards, which cuts off how much dodge I have.

Edit: After completing a round with someone, it showed us both as Masters of the room, and I couldn’t talk in public chat or go back to the lobby. Had to refresh the page.

Edit: Having the chat box open while it’s my turn “freezes” the timer on my screen, but it’s actually still counting down.

Sometimes when I’m the Room Master, the map that’s seen isn’t the map that’s being played. This usually happens when I cycle through the maps while in the room, and I think the other players see a different map selected than I do.

Only tried this once, but I walked over a bomb to kill myself, and my corpse was being dragged across the ground while my ghost was out. xD It was funny, so I think if it really happened, that it should stay in the game. :P

Edit: I tried it again in training mode, and it still worked. I don’t know how this would play out in a match where people are continuing to play though, since I only tested it when I’m the last person to die & the round ends.

Topic: Crazy Fairies / Suggestion Thread

Since the game is down, I’ll keep the suggestions coming.

7. For the item images, making the background a different color if they’re precious/set would make it easier to sort through what is and isn’t junk. Ex. Blue background for normal, Green for precious, and Yellow for set. It might look odd to have a yellow background with a midas ring, but maybe there’s another way you can mark the items to set them apart from the normal ones.

8. Have unique weapons that are hard to find, and only gives at most a slight advantage over normal weapons. They could be rare drops from bosses or chests. Examples of this could be a cosmetic edits to current weapons:
-Change the Devil’s Little Wand to look like a trident that shoots a bubble, and releases a school of fish upon exploding.
-Change The Huntsman’s Axe to look like a lollipop.
Unusual bonus attributes:
-A Witch’s Staves that has 0.5%-1% chance to freeze a target.
-A Frog King Wand that has 0.5%-1% chance to poison a target.
-A Devil’s Little Wand that has 1%-5% chance to confuse a target when hit by bats (reset their aim & power bar).
-The Huntsman’s Axe that has 1%-3% chance to cause a target to bleed.
Or completely new weapons:
-A magic weapon that acts like the card ‘Snow White’s Prince’, and adds to health & defense on equip rather than attack. Have it throw out a kiss (or something) towards a target, and heals the first ally it touches (can’t heal yourself). I don’t know if the enemy should be healed by it, mildly hurt (10%-25% damage), distracted (add delay to their timer), or a combination of things from the awkward moment.
-A melee weapon that acts like a drill (or is a drill, or it could be some crazy spinning umbrella), and allows the player to dig tunnels in a controlled manner (it could use up twice as much walking power to dig). At close-range, it could do heavy damage if it hits the other player non-stop, and also push them back (chance to push a player off the map if they aren’t careful).
-A knife that allows a player to instantly cloak for the remainder of their turn when they teleport, and they remain cloaked for the current round (Round 1), and next round (Round 2), and becomes uncloaked at the start of Round 3. The player can be uncloaked earlier if they are hit, within sight of an enemy’s angle meter (enemy must be facing the player), or if the player managed to sneak up behind an enemy to backstab him/her for critical damage.
-Pretty much keep the items balanced like they do in Team Fortress 2. Whenever they add a bonus to a new item, there tends to be a drawback to it too. If there isn’t a drawback to an item, then it’s only a slight bonus.

9. As far as gameplay goes, I don’t have many issues. I wish I could get better at aiming, so maybe there could be an improved training ground called Challenge Courses, where you have to do trick shots with specific weapons within a limited amount of rounds, and get rewarded for it (maybe some teamwork courses). The rewards could be decent (similar to a boss chest), and can only be claimed once (you can repeat it for practice).

10. A silver coin version of the gold-only items (ex. boosters and cards). And just like the Mystery Boxes, have it so that the silver versions are weaker than the gold versions.

11. A better way to search for items in the marketplace. Ex. If I’m looking for an item with at least Attack +10, I would like to filter out all the items that have Attack +5 or none.

12. New outfits that are either solely cosmetic, or have slight stat bonuses as well. Maybe allow the outfits to be upgraded to have a fancier look to them, and boost the stat bonuses slightly (if there are any).

Keep up the good work, and I hope these suggestions will spark some nice ideas. ^^

Edit: Since the game came back up, I noticed that there’s a timer when all the players are ready. I think 10 seconds is a bit too short, especially when I’m the Master in a private game. xD

Edit: A preview for decoration items would be nice.

1. I would like to see the mailbox be visible in the Lobby. It could be added as a small circle on top along with the “Tournament” “Option” and “Quest” buttons, and light up when there’s a new message.
2. I accidentally entered a PvE game and spent 5 gold because I quickly mistook it for a “Your level is too high” pop-up when flipping through games. Maybe you can create a 2nd pop-up to purchase tokens or whatever… just something to avoid this mis-click. XD Or instead, you could get rid of the gold pop-up and just say that you can only receive this chest once per day (it can be hard to get help with a boss if everyone else already beat it).
3. This probably wouldn’t work out well, but how about a free mode where everyone runs freely with a delay only on the weapons? This game mode would prevent someone from being teamed-up on in the beginning and being killed before they can even move.
4. I don’t think the camera zoom works with a laptop’s touchpad scroll function (at least not mine). I don’t know if there’s a way to fix this, since I don’t think I’ve seen it work on any games that I’ve tried.
5. Converting silver coins to gold sounds like an idea that would be exploited by botters. I would rather see things be like the mystery boxes… I’m assuming that all the boxes pretty much have the same items, except the odds of finding something good with the boxes bought with silver are very low.
6. Different ways to earn gold besides tournaments. Maybe have a small chance of receiving some gold coins from boss chests and even a smaller chance from mystery boxes… maybe add gold coins for level-up boxes too.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Steel Legions] So what's the strategy here.

Are you sure those terrain buffs are accurate? Unless they did an update suddenly, I think the in-game guide on the buffs didn’t include damage bonus, and were more like…

On hill:
Upside – You can see & shoot farther.
Downside – You’re easier to hit.

Crater:
Upside – It seems you take around 50% of normal damage. (unsure of actual %)
Downside – Your range is shorter.

Trees:
Upside – It seems there’s a 50% chance of getting hit. (unsure of actual %)
Downside – You’re slower.

Personally, I prefer craters over trees when fighting marauders because of its consistency, whereas with trees they could have a lucky run of shots and kill me unexpectedly. When fighting against other players, the crater isn’t as useful due to the shorter range, thus allowing opponents to scoot out of your attack range while keeping you in theirs.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Steel Legions] So what's the strategy here.

Another strategy that people don’t seem to get, is when to attack the objective & when to attack the other team.

If you’re on the offense and you outmatch your opponent (giving them a defense bonus), you’re not suppose to attack the objective and let them beat on you. It’s ridiculous when I see that happen when it’s 2 vs 1 (I’m the 1 that’s defending), and the other team could’ve easily won if they had taken me out first instead of ignoring me… yet I won by a long shot.

If you’re on the offense and your opponent outmatches you (giving you an attack bonus), you’re suppose to attack the objective and let the enemies beat up on you. If you try to kill the enemies first, then you’re most likely going to end up dying most/all of the time, and hardly any progress would be made on the objective.

But yes, the main strategy here is where you put your money. If spent the right way, you could potentially have around +180% damage from:
+50% in upgraded weapons
+50% from the Weapons Expert crew member
+30% from setting an opponent on fire
+30% from Nitro ammo
+20% from oiling up your weapon

I may have missed something, but if all that is true, then you can have the power of 3 tanks with all those upgrades. That explains how some super tanks can kill me in 5 hits.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Steel Legions] Wallet plays this game, not players

Each gold coin is worth less than a penny. I think it’d be pretty hard to raise $1 worth of gold in a single day, whereas in other games it’d only take a few hours to raise $1 worth of premium stuff.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Steel Legions] Wallet plays this game, not players

I agree, it costs $100 to buy 12,500 gold coins, and it costs 9,949 gold coins to buy the best gear gold can buy for your tank, and the rest of the gold can be used to maintain oil levels and ammo.

It’s pretty annoying going up against those people who do spend the money to get around 50% damage in parts (20% from oiled up weapon, +30% if you’re on fire, and +30% with nitro ammo for a total of +130% damage), and the best way to deal with them is to just hide so that they’d get less experience, and also make them get bored with waiting around for nothing. Make sure you tell your teammates what you’re up to.

You’re missing 7 accessories? I have 8 blank slots on my 3rd page, but I think 6 of them are suppose to be blank since they said there are 30 accessories in the game. I have Omega Seal, Phoenix Badge, Super Robo Suit, and Portable Mjolnir… do you have one that I’m missing?

Topic: General Gaming / Epic War 5

Does anyone have all 30 accessories, or are you missing 2 of them as well? It’d suck if we had to win with all 3 characters to unlock everything.

Maybe for the Lord of Hell, you might want to use your biggest troops (since you can hardly do anything with low-health troops due to the Lord’s strength & range), and also have something like goblins to stall the boss while your big troops respawn.

For Inferno, I think I just used an army made up with 5 ranged shooters & goblins. When the boss got too close to the ranged shooters, I moved them all back and kept them safe. When the boss reached my hero, I made my hero run past him and heal, and kept running while my ranged shooters hit him from behind. So yes, you can beat him with the wimpy archers you have.
