Topic: Technical Support / Unable to play any game

Hi there,

I’ve tried to play any game yesterday evening (7PM – 12 PM UTC+1) and it didn’t work. None of the games loaded for me, as the site chat.kongregate.com was not available.

What I have tried:
- used different browsers (IE,Chrome,Firefox) none of them worked.
- checked for the latest Flashversion (was installed already)
- cleared cache
- used a system restore point from the day before where I could play

Now how to deal with this in future? As you guys know a lot of games you host here have limited time events up and running. And missing them due to technical reasons is simply annoying.

Feel free to contact me via PM for any workaround…

Topic: BattleCry / Reset Your Game

if you use craft in the first act before you unlock the shop you’re totally stuck…
epic fail by the devs to allow the game to get into this state…
IF Chapter 1 is meant as tutorial… prevent players from ending in this kind of deadlock.
Now do something against it please…

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / Top Magic For Raids

decent lineup for high-hp raids, but total crap for raids with less than 4b health… people would overhit by far (even in z9 raids…) not going to argue about a reasonable setup of magics for farm-raids… (still QM *)

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / Bugs

it seems, that all NM Bellarius raids I had in my active list dissapeared…
Just joined one more NM Bella (got 1 in my active list now).
Which cannot be true, since I have on average ~80-200 NM Bellas in my active list.

I did a “Simulacrum” personal raid and finished it off within 40sec ~30min ago. Unfortunatly it was displayed as “0 damage” Close/View only…
So no loot but a 6h CD…

“s4.kongregate.callofgods.com” “(net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT)” …
I got that “nice” error-message yesterday evening european time and I keep getting it today…
Here’s the issue: I cannot login to Server 4, while I could start from scratch at the other 5 servers. So CoG start to explain yourself…
I was not able to do any dungeon yesterday due to that “nice” incident. Guess I won’t be able to play today as well…

one reason: alt-abusement will be even more common… just take the main and move 2 alts up with rewards and stuff… get 3 oj gems with a single run… get the point? just a ridiculous request…

randomly systemwise logout force 3 times in 2 minutes… seems to affect a couple (if not all) users at Server 4 since at least half an hour

edit says login: 15-35sec, logout. Nice job. I’m still missing my 2nd Abyss for today… and I guess, that this issue won’t be solved in a time where european players can still rush a 2nd time…

Hi, Katerchen
about the patch-log, everytime once we have any large update or add new items, we always put the patch-log on the
maintenance news. But it doesn’t always have changing anything or it is only some small bugs, for example, words spelling, wrong
item picture, but it doesn’t necessary to put it on news. And most times it is just maintenance for the game, so that it can run
smoothly in the next week.
And the 100 level+ , it is the extension of the game, you know the hightest level in game is 100 level before, And under the
requirement of the players, we extension it, it means a new start for all the 100 level players, and they can continue enjoying the game.

Thanks, BlazeMonk
Maybe you are right, but some items are really rare in it, if all the items are random, then the price isnot 5g, or 50g, because there are
not only 5g or 50g, but with the items, we will change the items in the wheel of fortune for a certain time, change useful items in it.

Irony ON – Nice reply… Irony OFF

Maintenance Notice (March 8th)
Dear players,

The servers 1-6 are going to be performing a maintenance update on Thursday, March 8th, 18:30-19:00 PST (server time). The devs have been working hard on bringing in major updates for servers and fixing existing bugs. You won’t be able to log on or play the game during this time, but AFK training, resource production, etc, will continue as normal throughout the update. (And this time the update will be so large. If we need more time, we will tell players.)

Content
1. Add quests of level 101-105
2. Add lv110 and lv110 dungeon goals.

COG TEAM

OK now we have an issue…
For that meaning, I’ll take my time to get to lvl110, because I will most likely hit it before the next expension of the lvl-cap is released anyway. So any XP gathered after hitting the cap is wasted. Good to know!
A Patch-Log has to include ALL changes in the upcoming patch. That means your devs have to state exactly what they are going to change. That way they will notice, if they mess up something (OJ Gems gone…) in advance. Just out of curiosity, do you have any kind of testing environment? If yes, are you using it? I do not see the point in letting the community figure out, what you messed up each single patch-day. And I do not see any point in letting the community figure out WHAT actually has been changed in addition to the small information you give out in the “Patch Notes” as you call ‘em. From my POV that’s not worth calling it that way, but maybe something like “some things where we know that there are changes which might work as intended, but we don’t know, if we have messed up other things by implementing these changes”.

mimimi, how about fixing the issue, that mini-bosses are not always in the dungeon first? Wasting a key for an S-bounty suxx…
Anyway, since you guys do not read the other complaining threads on purpose:
same procedure as every patch day … no patch-log …
I’m sorry that you have to take the anger, but YOUR INFORMATION POLITICS SUCK!

How often did we ask you kindly and polite to give us a patch-log (one or two days before would be nice, when the patch is deployed it is MANDATORY!)
I don’t care what you have to do for that, but I’m sick and tired of these surprise days.
Are your devs actually in an “How can we screw up the community that partly pays for this game today?”- mood on a daily basis?

Please don’t tell me, you’ll transfer that issue, because you promised to do so multiple times. So what has happened since then? Nothing? Still no information in advance? As nice as it is to have this new level cap, ZERO information before that… It’s not really thought through with the rewards basing on the lvl… (lvl99 with 90% might get 2 gift packages, while others might get nothing)
All the experience the lvl100s got BEFORE you updated the cap is gathered for nothing? Are you serious? Why the f*** did system wise the message popped up “You gathered 1xx.000 XP” when finally someone that hit lvl100 by the first week of January and stayed active (3+ dungeons a day and stuff like that) started at the cap-extention at 0/400.000.000 xp? Can you explain that? No? Thought so!
You’re going to reward the active players with pretty nice stuff and I do appreciate that. BUT you do not care about those f****** script users. Reward them with red equip and/ or red gems and I promise you that the majority of the community that is NOT using scripts will eigther stop trying to stay competitive or they will start to use any nasty approach they find to get competitive again. Up to you guys…
I am requesting an answer to this via private message from you callofgods. And if you want, you might get some names of script users on that way as well.

This.

15 days worth of additional dungeon keys is worth 360-450g(based on VIP status) and, if starting at lvl 95, that still isn’t enough to get to 100. Further, if you have poor luck(damn bloody items are far too common in d8H), those additional runs are a complete financial loss. Most people within the lower half of the “95-100” range are better off simply buying a piece of oath gear from the marketplace, they’ll save money and have the option of choosing a piece that they actually want.

MIMIMI TWICE?
2 weeks for 5 lvl (or 14 days for 5 lvl) is sufficient with 3 dungeons a day… so stop the f****** whining…
Anyway it should have been a “One Giftbox only” event… that way it is possible to gather the 90 and 95 or 95 and 100 both…

Think you need to calm down. If you’ve paid any attention to this thread at all, you’d have noticed that I’m completely fine with this event and have actually argued against this general “I DESERVE MORE” attitude.

Further, pay more attention to what’s being stated: “ Starting at lvl 95 ,” meaning, NOT having actually gotten the lvl 95 box. I’m sure even YOU can agree that the lvl 95-100 range is noticably more difficult to achieve then any of the others(if starting from the bottom), and many that start the event at 95 or 96 will likely NOT be able to get to 100 within the given time due to the need to farm 6 dungeons a day, AND grind world bosses for hours on end.

You’re right, it IS doable with only 3 dungeons a day, but missing out on another 3 will require a decent amount of extra time being spent on world bosses, an amount that the general player likely will not deem worthwhile. This is the ONE issue with this event – that the other lvl ranges have a significantly easier time getting their reward, while many starting at 95/96 will not get even a single gift. It is from this realization that my initial statement stands: if you started at lvl 95 or 96, you’re likely better off simply buying an oath item from the marketplace and saving yourself the time and gold spent on grinding. If you have the time to grind away, then go for it(hell, I’m going to try too), but if you KNOW you don’t then save yourself the trouble.

Edit: And yes, I agree – 1 box per person would have been a much better idea.

so you are not able to read as well. that makes it even. A bit more attention to the statement “2 weeks for 5 lvl (or 14 days for 5 lvl) is sufficient with 3 dungeons a day” says it all. With grinding and 6 dung/day it’s even possible to grind FAR more levels than those 5. So if you’re not able to do so, eigther learn to optimize your playing style, or do it like most others (as you started to do) and whine like a baby to get the stuff for free. I’m really sick and tired of that MIMIMI IT’S TOO HARD TO GET FOR FREE posts! Thx for the attention! And by the way, lvl95-98 is done in 2.5 days per lvl-up with 3 dungs only and almost no grinding… I’ve done that myself, so I know what I’m talking about. Anyway I’m out of the whining thread for now…

Topic: Call of Gods / Formation tome: Defensive form

it’s quest only, but it doesn’t matter anyway. You will find out, that you will look for “Guard” or “Feint” Formations only. (Those have 3 covered backrow spots). For almost all world team bosses Left Feint is the supreme choice. Some Dungeon Bosses work best with Right Feint (where all others work quite ok with Left Feint). Guard is used, if you eigther have no Feint, or you’re going for a PVP setup. (It has some advantages there). So don’t be too worried about losing the “senseless” Defensive Form ;)

Lvl80 Easter Eggs could give lvl60 OJ equip set, a new OJ gem (rare), a new score card (very rare)
Lvl100 Easter Eggs could give new OJ gem, new score card (rare), red transmute items (very rare)


well… seems that you don’t know the game… At least I don’t know ANY red transmute item…
And what exactly should this Score Card be? An item that grants 5.000.000.000 Score instantly? Sorry for the sarcasm, but this request is too **** to take it for serious…

mimimi, l2p?
@CallofGods: Did you receive any information from your dev-/ support-staff as far as the suggestions concerning Hero Cards are concerned? (At least make them sellable for Copper PLEASE!)

Dunno if this has been mentioned yet, but do you consider a Gold-Feature that allowes to change the Style of a specific Hero? (Maybe sth like 500g to change a red defence hero into a red agility/attack/…, 300 for orange, …)? the reason I come up with this is, that i got another red defense hero now… and 4 red def heros is just too much… therefore the new lvl1 red def hero will stay untouched for the entire time I’m spending on this game.

In Short: Make Hero Cards Sellable (your choice if for copper or tradeable in the Auction House), come up with a feature to switch Hero Styles to meet the needs of players (gold feature!)

Topic: Call of Gods / CoG code

approach: nice
but won’t happen anyway… guess why? because sending the source code would mean that you and your colleagues will have a running mmo (with bugs)… by simply using other textures and a few alterings as far as the gameplay is concerned you’d have a “new” mmo that will most likely take all the customers away from CoG. Get the point? In case CoG will take that risk you might count on my help (as I’m almost done with my masters degree in appliced computer science) there as well.

Topic: Call of Gods / Where are the IV's?

well…
As far as that point “just add IV-tomes to the d7-d9h loot table among that other purp drops” is concerned: r u crazy? There is enough purple garbage handed out already. Not everyone actually needs IV-tomes… And since I’ve tried to sell IV-tomes quite cheaply for a while now and noone wanted that tomes (have been placed 24h so everyone had the chance to buy) I assume there are more then enough IV-tomes out there. If not, well then players just don’t want to pay for them … A while ago I needed quite a couple of IV-tomes and bought them all in the AH, coz they didn’t drop for me. Now what? Why do all of you whining egocentrics don’t do the same? Is it that uuuh I won’t spend gold for a tome that might fail-attitude? Instead of poking CoG to get after the incident with the devs, you should ask yourself if you did everything to get a skill-tome…
So basically @died_again stfu! get your f****** books out of the AH or from Silver-IV-chests. Shouldn’t be a big deal for you to get those stuff there.
@nambuk: what would you like to have done first: a lvl-cap increase with new content or to get flooded with stuff you don’t need anyway?
Actually most of you whining kids are not lvl100 and have already every IV-skill learned…
So as most of us lvl100’s are concerned… We do have that… And we are waiting (partly for months) for something senseful to do in this very game. So I would recommend you to just let the devs do their job and take a bit more patience on your hunt…
Just imagine you whiners, what would happen if the lvl100s would quit… No more shiny stuff for you for free (or a symbolic 1g) … is that what you want? keep the CoG-Team flooded with those nasty “mimimi I can’t get this fast enough” tasks and it will most likely happen…
