Your technically right about the 400m/s, but its also kind of just 17m/s.
Only thing you got to do is beat dr. pozzi with spoil and weak spot activated. This will give you about 120 B, which is enough to get to 2k points (activate forbidden scroll after beating dr pozzi)

I’m quite sure Batto Sensei isn’t working. I have him on level 1 and always have to pay more than the shown cost.

Topic: Tap Cats - Idle Warfare / Bug Reporting - Please replay to this thread!

It seems fixed now and I’m 100% certain it had to do with some rework of the prologue.
As I said I suddenly got into the prologue where one can only buy the slots that one is “ordered” to buy during the prologue. Now after a very very painfull ascend to level 150 I prestiged, played through the prologue again and seem to be free to buy whatever slots I want.

Topic: Tap Cats - Idle Warfare / Bug Reporting - Please replay to this thread!

As a result of not beeing able to open slots I am now stuck at level 143.
All my cats are level 100.
So I can neither get upgrades and become stronger nor can I get new cats.

Topic: Tap Cats - Idle Warfare / Bug Reporting - Please replay to this thread!

Can’t open the slot for 500k gold. No idea why, but it just doesn’t respond to clicks in any way. I’m at 723k now and trying to go for 1 mil and open that slot instead of 500k :-/

Edit: The slot for 1 mil wasn’t buyable either.

Maybe this has something to do with the tutorial changes you apparently did yesterday? At least I was offline all day yesterday and when I returned some tutorial text boxes showed up although I was on level 136. After I got rid of all the tutorial text boxes I tried to claim my offline gold, but the button only dissapeared after clicking and I got no offline gold at all.

Topic: Tap Cats - Idle Warfare / Suggestions - New features & changes

Ok, I’m sure we can all agree that prestige was to powerfull in the previous version of the game, but the update nerfed this to much imo.

It seems to me that the developers don’t have that much experience with idle games and tried to copy popular features in the old version, but then failed with the balancing.
But whatever, thats what we are here fore, to help fix this stuff :-D

To me the system where the passive (as in not on the battlefield) upgrades where also cats itself and could either be used ative or passive was the best part of the prestige system. As far as I can tell passive cats no longer exist now, which is pretty sad imo, since passive buffs for future prestige runs are an essential part of every idle game.

The big problem with the old system was that prestige cat costs stayed the same. In every other game the cost would increase with the ammount of cats of that type one already owns. Thats pretty much everything one needs to balance a prestige system and prevent the extreme buffs we had in the past.
For example, lets us buy a first cat for 100 prestige and then a 2nd of the same type for 125 and so on.

Another part that was lacking was the incentive to make runs further than level 100. I don’t see an incentive to go further than the min requirement for prestiquing now either, especially since the game becomes way to hard around level 135.
You need to implement special cats or special cat boxes that are only awarded by reaching a certain level.

An really awesome feature of the new system is the auto crit buff from ads, but imo waiting 2.5h after it ran out is way to long. Maybe make it active for 30 min and let ppl wait for an reactivation another 30-60 min. You got to remember that you game is supposed to be an IDLE game.
Forcing players to click all day long or use an auto clicker isnt really a good way to go about creating an idle game.

My final point is about gold, and I may be wrong about this… not 100% sure.
It seems to me that the gold earned from kills does NOT increase with the level or enemies health (this is a common base for the gold calculation). This then results in a way lower gold/h on higher levels than on lower levels.
Which in turn makes ppl feel like they are not progressing or even regressing and this is inacceptable for an idle game.
You got to remember who you are creating games for. I’m sure many ppl come here because they want to feel like they are not progressing (enough) in their real life and want to feel a kind of acomplishment in games.
If they don’t feel the progress in this game, they wont play it.

Another issue with the gold cost is that “good” players will just stay on lower levels to farm gold, till they have enough cats/upgrades to rush to level 150.

Thats all for now, hope you will read it ;-)

Topic: RiseFall Web / Developers diary - What's new?

Just wanted to say that I don’t like the new build at all.
Mainly I just don’t see the reasoning for changing the abilities completely?
I would have understood if they had to be changed slightly to make the game more balanced in certain ways, but why are healers suddently no longer healers and why are damage dealers suddenly healers?
These changes are just to strange imo and I don’t get why they were done.

Well, but all of that is not the worst thing. In my opinion the active abilities are just horrible.
Even before the patch most abilities were weaker than a normal attack from the champion and this has been a major flaw back then, but now after the patch all abilities got even weaker.
Most battles end after a max of 4 rounds… why would I need to silent/stun/poison/whatever my enemy in round 3?
Especially when these abilities dont really deal damage?

The way I see it my team would be much stronger if they would not activate their abilites. Then instead of doing something completely useless, they’d just kill the enemies in round 3.
So the abilities aren’t really abilities, but weaknesses of the champions and I guess thats not the intention.

Topic: RiseFall Web / PvP Test Event 5: 2015/09/11 (Event closed)

Here is my review of this PvP event:

Matchmaking isn’t that good. In the beginning I was not paying much attention and while leveling my team PvP battles varied from extremely easy (while providing 13 points) to extremely hard.
Once I got the hang of the system and understood whats important in PvP I never lost again. Thats obviously nice for me, but I guess never losing isn’t good for business ;-)

Now to something more crucial to me:
The rankings seem to be pretty bugged. I have been 3rd for a while before the end of the event and in the last few minutes raylis started to get really close to me. Therefore I started to use Ambrosia and win some more points to keep ahead. About 5 min before the end I realised that raylis score stopped increasing and I thought that he gave up. I then increased my lead over him to 100 points, just to be safe. The last 5 minutes I spent opening and closing the rankings, since I thought that would update the rankings.
When the event ended I was pretty happy that I won 3rd place, but in chat raylis told me that on his leaderboard he was shown as 3rd and I was 4th.
This way I found out that the rankings apparently do NOT get updated.
This is something that should definetly be changed/fixed before a final release. Imagine the game having lots of players and then in the end 10 players or so are fighting to get a certain rank. Because the rankings to not upgrade all of them think they won, while in fact only one of them did. That will make them really upset and feel kind of cheated.
This is the same for me now. After all I could have kept ahead (I still have lots of ambrosia stored up), if I had only known that ryalis was still playing.

Now that the event is over and the rewards are given out, I’m even more confused about this:
As I feared I only got the rewards for #4 and the game told me I was 4th.
Because I wanted to see by how much ryalis passed me I pressed the button to watch the final score. Here is a screenshot of that
https://gyazo.com/f1dbfd71aa9500c8cf266ddc4f39f64b

It tells me I’m 4th, while the ranking screen shows me as 3rd.
So yeah, the ranking system needs some more work.

All that beeing said, could you devs be so kind and gift me the legendary hero I would have gotten if the rankings screen was not bugged? ;-)

P.S. pls look at the screenshot in the next few days since the page deletes it after a while.

Topic: RiseFall Web / PvP Test Event 4: 2015/08/28 (Event closed)

Hey, just started playing 2 days ago. Here my review about PvP:

1) You should get rid of stamina refresh on level up. I placed 3rd and although not many ppl participated at all I believe most other ppl would have earned the 3rd place more when considering their teams level and such. Stamina from level up is a huge advantage for new players. I believe in most other games I’ve played that had a pvp energy it did not refill on level up either.

2) You need to rework the enemy selection. It seems to me that the enemies are choosen based on the average level of the own team. I kind of abused that (probably like many others did too) by using 1 good card besides my hero and 2 level 1 cards with block adjacent. That lowers my average level so that my 2 strong ppl can easily kill the enemies while they do low damage against the important champs.
You could either base the enemies on the characters level alone or give higher rewards for beating stronger people.

That beeing said, I could not switch teams in the selection screen either, which is a good thing. Imagine the button would work. You use a low level team to search for enemies and then switch the team to you high level team and initiate a battle. That would basically mean that PvP fights can no longer be lost.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / Disruptor beam is a ripoff

You seem to have no understanding of how the iron bank system works. If you buy a gift code from the iron bank its solely DB’s business (no matter on what account you use the code), that has nothing to do with kongregate at all.
Plus the kongregate account you are using to post here is 3 days old, which further proofs my point that your issue was most likely in no way related to kongregate or that you are just a shady person, who creates alt accounts to cause drama in the forums. For what its worth, without knowing who your really are, I’d guess you had no shot at top 100 anyways.

I got to admit, you are right and I’m really stupid. I should never have replied to a troll. I apologise to everyone in these forums for taking part in some unnecessary drama.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / Disruptor beam is a ripoff

1) you bought gold on DB’s iron bank page, that has nothing to do with Kongregate, so why do you want a reply from kongregate?
2) DB will reply to you. It may come as a surprise to you, but you are not the only player with problems. DB’s support team has a shitload of stuff to take care of and their usual respond time is 2-4 days. So its pretty normal that you did not get a reply after 12h.
3) Are you sure you did everything correctly? You said you got a confirmation mail and the gold did not appear in your DB account. I’ve never used the iron bank, but as far as I know in the iron bank system you get a code that you have to use in the ingame shop to receive your gold. It is not automatically transfered to your account.

Why would you complain about a topic from 2 years ago beeing outdated…makes no darn sense at all. In fact it’s pretty frustrating.

All joking aside, you really can’t expect the authors to “maintain” their old posts and edit them when something changed after 2 years imho…

Originally posted by Ryu82:

The current creation power does affect the speed not the multi.
But with a higher multi, your creation power goes up faster so.

From creation power it can go up to 1000% and this 1000% can be increased with god power a lot higher. If it is at around 3400%, you will max out the speed for creating clones which is around 33/s.
With this 99999 clones will be created in around 50 mins.

Is this information still accurate? Because atm I have 1552% creation speed while my multiplier from god powers is 490%. I thought the creation speed was calculated like this (speed from creation + speed from god powers) which in my case would have been 1000%+490%=1490% (since you said 1000% was the max from creation. Apparently this is wrong, so either the speed is calculated (speed from creation * speed from god powers), which basically means that the top speed I can reach is 1000%*4.9=4900% or the information in your post is wrong.
Could you please illuminate me, so I dont waste to much god power on creation speed, since the max for shadow clones is 3400%…

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] October 8th - Cards leveling and selling

Cryptkeeper says “add 1 structure point to this artifact” which must be wrong since the cryptkeeper obviously is no artifact ;-)

I honestly think that a sell feature is a really bad idea. It can only create very sad customers/player. If you sell something you probably wont enjoy the extra bp for long and forget about it, but if you sell something and it will then be needed in an evolution or receives a strong level up card, then you will remember it forever and you will regret the choice to sell the card.
