Topic: Dragons of Atlantis / missing troops

I just logged into the game to find that all of my troops had disappeared for no apparent reason. Looking at this thread, it seems like this is a routine occurrence. Do I really need to spend time opening a support ticket just to keep the troops I’ve already trained? If so then I think I’d prefer to find a less broken game to play.

Topic: Outernauts / Support Issue Thread

I have confirmed the bug in the Firepower quest that I reported above. I consumed some lava plants from my inventory, after which I was easily able to complete the quest. The only way I know to remove them from your inventory is by using them in an armory recipe or a laboratory recipe. Game developers, take note: You have a fully analzyed bug here that needs to be fixed: Change the Firepower quest to count lava plants that are found even when you have 50 in your inventory and cannot pick up more. As it stands now, the quest cannot be completed if you have 50 in your inventory, since you cannot hold more.

Topic: Outernauts / Support Issue Thread

I’ve encountered a bug in the Firepower quest. I need to collect 3 lava plants within 36 hours. However, it’s stuck at 1/3 plants, even though I’ve unearthed many of them since starting the quest. I believe I know what’s causing the bug: I have 50 of them in my inventory, so I can’t pick up any more. For the purposes of the quest, it should advance the quest counter before it tries to add them to your inventory. As it stands, I cannot complete the quest until I find some way to remove some lava plants from my inventory. It does not appear to be possible to drop them or to sell them, so I will need to find some way to consume them. Obviously this is a very annoying bug.

Topic: The Godfather / Experience leak

Firstly, I find your tone quite offensive and inappropriate. Secondly, if troops = exp as you assert, then building more troops to restore the ones lost in a fight should, by your claim, restore the experience that was lost. It does not. I was quite clear about this in my post.

Topic: The Godfather / Experience leak

I’ve noticed that when I lose a few troops after attacking, say, a gang, when my troops return, I lose some experience (not respect, but experience). Ok, so I guess part of your experience is due to your attack strength. But if you rebuild the attack troops that you lost, you do not regain the experience that you lost. I suspect this often goes unnoticed, because in the meantime people are gaining experience by doing other things. But unless I’m missing something, this seems like a real problem to me. I actually had to hold back on attacking gangs because I had lost too much experience, with no obvious way to regain it other than through other means.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heavens] FAQ and Tutorial

It seems like you pretty much have to purchase diamonds to keep the game playable. Specifically, I have a bunch of equipment which seems good for my level, but it’s cracked and in need of repair. But unlike most games, you can’t spend ordinary currency to repeair items. Instead, you have to pay with premium currency (diamonds), and in fact it costs 5 diamonds to repair a single item. Sure, I have found a few diamonds in the cave, but not nearly enough to keep my equipment repaired. The result: My inventory is clogged with good but cracked equipment which I can’t afford to repair, and all I do now is explore the cave in the hope of finding diamonds. It’s utterly boring. As I see it, I can do one of two things: (1) buy diamonds just to restore my equipment so I can continue playing at my former strength, or (2) quit. Right now option (2) is looking more likely.

Topic: Castlot / Bug Reports

My cloud sword is still broken (see my earlier post – it’s weaker than the lower-level arena weapon due to the stat bonuses being mostly gone). Does any game official read this thread? Is my sword going to be fixed? Or should I just give up on the arena?

Topic: Castlot / Bug Reports

I just purchased a cloud sword from the arena, and I noticed that its stat bonuses are way, way, WAY lower than the standard cloud swords one could buy just a day earlier. If it was decided to nerf this once-only item, then fine, except for one problem: Existing cloud swords retain their original bonuses. I view that as a bug. To be clear: Old cloud swords give +44 stats (int +12, str +16, agi +8, sta +8). Mine gives +8 stats (str +8). That’s a downgrade of 36 stats. I would like my sword replaced with the original version (with the same upgrades as mine now has).

I can’t connect either, getting authentication failed error. When will this be fixed?

After the maintenance ended, I noticed that my Flash plugin kept crashing when I entered a battle screen. This happened repeatedly. However, clearing my browser cache solved the problem. I suggest clearing your caches regardless of whether you’ve experienced this problem.

Update: zqgame reimbursed me for the diamonds I spent on the training bug, so I’m good now :)

I can confirm that my “can train” problem has been solved – both of my heroes that were stuck in training are finally free again. No compensation for the diamonds I spent the first time I encountered this problem, but hopefully this won’t happen again. I still think escaping from training should always be free, even when it’s still in progress.

My second hero’s training period just ended. I was hoping it might pop both of them out of training, but no such luck: Now they’re both stuck, and the only way to train any other heroes is to spend diamonds getting out of it. SCAM. The developers have been made aware of this, yet the problem persists, and they are continuing to charge people diamonds to get out of training. This is inexcusable.

Kongregate admins, please take note: Players are being forced to spend diamonds (which are purchased with kreds) just to avoid this bug and advance their characters. This must be fixed, and those who have spent diamonds on this should be well compensated (with diamonds).

Here’s any idea for a bandaid for the “can train” bug. When clicking “stop”, don’t charge a diamond if there’s no time left. Seems like a trivial check and that way you’d stop ripping people off. Right now I’m seriously blocked, I can either (1) waste a diamond, (2) just sit there wasting training, or (3) find a less buggy game to play.

Now that I think about it, here’s an even better idea for providing a work-around for this bug: Stop charging people a diamond to prematurely end training, regardless of whether or not the training period has ended. Just give a warning saying “Are you sure you wish to end your training? You will not be reimbursed for your unused time.” Let’s face it, charging diamonds to end training is a bit of a scam at best, and while this bug persists, it’s a definite scam.

I’m stuck in training as well. It just says “Can Train”. This happened to me once before, a few days ago, and I wasted 2 diamonds getting out of it. Perhaps some reimbursement is in order.
