So…

This was the exact thing that ticked me off about COTD. There were so many cards you have almost no chance of getting, even after you get over level 50. And, just like here, the cards are only really useful when you are below 30 or so.

The only way the next attack will do damage is if it’s 5 or higher……. or if it has a “delete” ability like the Non-Stops.

So yes, that always means the next attack will do 4 less damage.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] League Search

I used to play Clash a lot. I like this game better so far (it’s weird that it’s not on Facebook). I’m a level 16 acolyte as of this post. I’m looking for a clan that’s active in clan brawls. I’m a stay at home dad and I’m going to college.

EDIT: lvl 21 now.
Level 26 now
EDIT: 7/15/2012 I’m level 31 now.

I suspect they will become more useful later on as more cards are released.

I would say that you should NOT buy Honor Packs this week and instead save up for Glory Packs.

Topic: Card Monsters / New Player, Just Hit the Forgotten Ruins Needs Help

OK, you should also know that just about EVERYTHING has changed with the new duels. Now there are “Common Cards only Duels” as well as “Uncommon Cards only Duels” so you really can’t “waste” money on an Advanced Booster. Also, just about ANY card is only to be leveled up, except for maybe some like the Imp (to level 3) and a few others. If it dramaitcally increased the cost, or just flat out increases it about 4, you probably should think VERY carefully before leveling it up.

Topic: Card Monsters / Coming Changes

True, but this game hasn’t been out for that long. That’s the point. IF the game is relatively new, but there are many people who have uber cash decks it can get really discouraging for newer players who can’t seem to make any REAL progress after a month. Now do you have a ROUGH idea when the expansion will be here? In the begining of the week, middle, or end?

Those will help, but sometimes they take too long to get here. At that is the case for some people.

There is currently not enough incentive for all members to do them.
Not everyone cares about rep or rank. Gems and xp is what everyone really wants.

For the love of God, YES!!!

Topic: Card Monsters / How to retain players

Originally posted by Z__Y:

i think two of the main reasons why its not easy to attract or retain players are :

1) How many people are willing to play for 25 hours just to open ONE master pack ? ( if you play log in 3 times a day or 3 hours a day, 25k gems = 1 week)
2) How many people will still continue playing this game when they opened 7 master packs just to find 1-2 cards that they can use? ( thats about 2-3
useful cards in 2 months)

Allowing us to reroll for 125 tokens is a great improvement, but what about the average player? If there is no average player in this game, we only have
1) paid players
2) hardcore free players ( who dont seem to sleep or play 10-20 hours 7 days a week)
3) new players

Will a new player feel comfortable in such an environment?

I agree with everything here. I especially have a problem with the game enviroment right now. I’m starting to rapidly lose interest.

One think that Edgebee could also do is to make Advanced Boosters cheaper (if he doesn’t want to let us trade cards.) That could also fix the problems in this game, but not as nicely as trading since they won’t have the same incentive to join and alliance.

Jegron, the ONLY thing you cannot get in this game unless you pay money is the samurai armor..yup, thats a game changer, youre right, impossible to compete without samurai armor..

In all fairness, the amount of time it will take to get a decent deck without spending real world money is SOOOOO long it’s ridiculous. That’s the big difference. We are talking about 2 months, bare min. You will probably have to play for a month or two AFTER you finish the story part of the game. Depending on how you look at this game, 2-3 months before you get a “good” deck is not worth it. How can you keep people’s interest?

That makes me feel A LOT better.

Regardless, we are now waiting for someone to duel. We have been waiting for 3 hours….

I still see the card PLENTY as it is. I think the change was needed. It appears to be JUST as useful now, just in different ways than before.

Topic: Card Monsters / Should Allied Assaults be changed?

I have an OK deck. But, sadly, it’s worse than just about anyone else in my alliance. I am, however, quite active. Regardless, that doesn’t really mean much now. Out of my 20 assaults against the Grim Reapers I only won 4. Most of the battles I got slaughted in. Now I’m not saying that the Grim Reapers is full of a bunch of Cash Cows, but they have some DAMN good decks. Some of my Guildmates have spend some serious money on this game, but it didn’t seem to matter.

This is kind of rediculous. I’m on area 4 of the Volcanic Grotto and I’m in a top Alliance. However, I’m somewhat stuck in the Volcanic Grotto, and now I can’t really participate in Allied Assaults. What am I supposed to do? It seems like my only clear option is to either drop like $50 on the game, grind a sh*t ton so I can buy some cards or master boosters (which will take A LOT OF TIME), and/or leave my alliance and join a lower level one so I can better participate in Allied Assaults.

This is depressing. My fun factor has just about bottomed out on this game. What is a free player to do?

Topic: Card Monsters / Should Allied Assaults be changed?

Does anyone else hate how the Allied Assaults work now? When the changed first happened we had already started an assault. The first one we did after the change left us with nothing. Neither of us gained any points. After that there was NO ONE for us to fight. Now we are against the Grim Reapers. I’m pretty sure they declared on us. Regardless, we are “The Shining Ones” in case you were wondering. Now we will probably lose this one, but that’s not the point. The point is that the top 10 are going to stagnant. NOTHING will really change much at all, just like before the fix. What’s worse is that NOW we won’t even get to gain points and rank up our alliance. I don’t know HOW long it will take people to get to 500 with this new change.
sigh
The old way was broken. We all knew that. It was fun for us active Alliances, but it was still broken. Now this new way is still broken. It might be more fun to some people, less to others. Regardless, fun is sometimes just a relative statement. My point is that now we have NOTHING to gain from the Allied Assaults. Before we could get, 3, 4, or 6 points per Allied Assault. Now we will be lucky to get 1 or 2 points. Many times people will probably not get any.
I don’t know how this can be fixed, but it needs to be. Maybe a complete overhaul. I don’t really know.

What do you guys think?

Could it be possible to limit the number of epic or rare can use in a deck?
Like there could only be 1 epic and 2 rare maximum in one deck…
This could limit some OP deck with only tons of strong cards in it…

I don’t mean to be rude, but that is a horrible idea. Maybe that might work in an Evo duel, but that rule would really reduce the number of different decks as well as upset people who spent money on the game. You have to admit that it WOULD reduce the amount of spending because people would have no incentive to keep spending if they couldn’t put the cards in their deck.

Topic: Card Monsters / Coming Changes

I was wondering if it might cost, for example, 10k crystals AND 100 tokens. You have to pay BOTH to buy it.

OR Just an either/or think like 25k crystals or 500 tokens, whichever you choose to spend.

Now how many legendary, epic, uncommon, and common cards will we get with it?
Will it be a 5 card booster, or will there be more cards in it?
Will there be equip cards, item cards, AND monster cards?
Will edgebee go with what was recommended/asked by us and include a random crystal in the deck?
Are the Expansion cards just plain BETTER than the normal cards, or are they just different?

Expansion: In ~2 weeks. Almost 300 new cards (with color/level variations), a new swarm, a new zone and maybe other stuff they keep secret from me.

Will the new cards only come in the “Expansion” deck?
What all cards will come in that? (expansion only, or expansion and pre-expansion both)
How much will it cost?
Will it sell for ONLY tokens, or will it sell for either crystals or token. Conversely, will it require BOTH crystals AND tokens?
What all will come in it, and how many (monsters, equips, crystals, ect. ect. ect.)

pet152 is 100% right here. There needs to be something better for members. This really hurts that they get so little. At the very least you should be either able to pick the color of the equip you get, and/or you should make it cost 1 crystal less. Right now it’s still just not worth it, sadly. Heck, you could even just add 10 magic to it and that might help push people to become members and to start spending money on the game.

To clarify here, I was talking about the Samurai Plate that you get from becoming a member.

Also, I don’t see a problem if becoming a member gives an “unfair” advantage over free players. You only need to pay $10 to get the advantage. Maybe if he knocked it down to $5, it might not be a problem. Regardless, if 50,000 people spent $5 or $10 it would be better than about 1,000 people spending $100 on the game.

Edgebee should implement an option to play against specific players in Live Play. Pictures of a kitty in return.

Topic: Card Monsters / The things included in the Master Boosters

Originally posted by thetim24:

The whole idea is that people stop saying, “I grinded for a week for a master booster, and i got a terrible rare card. I quit.” Maybe instead more people might say, “I grinded for a week for a master booster, and I got a terrible rare card, but at least I got a level three uncommon that is about as good as a rare. So I’m okay with that.” Or people might say, “I grinded for a week for a master booster, and i got a terrible rare card, but I got a crystal that allows me to upgrade one of my other rares.” Or “The rare equipment that I got does not work with my deck, but I got a T-crystal in my booster so i can change the equipment’s color to make it work in my deck.”

Less people will get frustrated and leave the game, and since the players will be able to change their decks more frequently, the game will feel less like a grind fest with the same 12 cards for hundreds of battles.

I hope that the expansion booster will include some of these ideas too.

I agree with EVERYTHING in this post.
