LoL and TF2 mostly. I’m always on the lookout for a decent game though

Topic: Outernauts / Showdown STAR GEMS spread (POLL)

I agree with that possible problem Somo. I’d be fine with 11-20 earning the same across the board. 20 a month is a solid amount to get boost someone needs without dedicating too much time.

I also agree with the BT exploits. It was done randomly as a I guess a way to diminish in-actives’ effects on showdown, however in-active members weren’t haven’t a strong effect to begin with so I found it weird. The system should weed out in-actives on it’s own. In addition, dropping BT to farm Alliance XP seems is another problem with the BT system, but yeah.. off topic, maybe that will be on the to-do list for after showdown changes occur.

Topic: Outernauts / Showdown STAR GEMS spread (POLL)

Jragonlord, I agree that rewards need to be more spread out. However, I feel it should certainty not be based on XP gains. XP is essentially just a formality. Sure, it helps you unlock items in the alliance, but once the alliance you are in reaches level 10, it’s pointless. I’m saying this as someone with more than 1 million XP. The encouragement to drop BTs to increase XP gain would also be bothersome as not needing to drop BTs anyone is one of the BEST things about your alliance hitting level 10

I would strongly dislike letting the alliance leader dictate were SG goes. I would much prefer a system set in place that a majority can get behind.

Topic: Outernauts / Showdown STAR GEMS spread (POLL)

I would be ok with spreading rewards out to top 20, but I would want them to favor the higher players:

IE:
1- 1-10 80SG, 11-20 20 SG
2- 1-10 40SG, 11-20 10 SG
3- 1-10 20SG, 11-20 5 SG

My main concern is that this game stay F2P with the option to get cool stuff (that isn’t required to compete) with SG. The lunar cap is a perfect example of this, though as Wandag suggested it is still a bit pricey.

Topic: Outernauts / Showdown STAR GEMS spread (POLL)

I love HalfMassed’s idea. I would love to see more than just the top 10 be rewarded. However, I (subjectively) feel that reducing the rewards that top 3 earn would be a bummer. I feel like half for 11-20 would be a very nice implement.

In addition, I would love to see more alliances rewarded (top 5?). Something like 100/80/60/40/20 could get more people motivated towards playing as they see rewards as a feasible option.

Finally, rewards don’t only have to be SG. Roids or metals/gems may be a great way of rewarding additional players (top 30 alliance members? or top 6-10 alliances?) without forking over SG to players. I would love to hear additional player’s input on these ideas as well as the others in this post.

I would actually like to suggest accepting help watering your plants by Ontar. It changed me in ways I can’t even explain. 5/5 stars!

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

Wandag makes a fair point – you don’t need boosts to compete at the highest level (bonus fusion stats from boosts aren’t an insurmountable advantage in fights). Pavise makes a fair point too – it’s demoralizing to compete in an unlevel playing field (not realistically being able to beat or match someone’s stats).

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

thus NOT encouraging everyone spend money*

Sorry, it’s hard to explain. Basically if you add the boosts to the fusion formula, you no longer need boosts for fusion (thus you don’t need to waste SG on them) but you can still keep up to the powerful people that used them to gain an advantage in stats.

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

No Pavise. If they put the boosts into the fusion formula (as in, instead of needing the boosts for the stats, you’re just given stats equivalent to what the boosts would give you) we would no longer need to farm boosts to be better than others, thus encouraging everyone spend money.

If they add the stats to the formula, it would solve everything. it just may take a bit of math to rework the formula.

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

Pavise does have a fair point. This is why I feel those boosts should be implemented into the fusion formula- so Outernauts becomes less of a P2Win game.

“Insomniac_Games: Hey guys, we are pushing out a hotfix soon to re-put back in Boosting and Fusing.”
“Insomniac_Games: To be clear – it IS a bug, but since so many people have utilized it for a while – we decided to keep it in.”

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

They could change the fusion formula to include extra stats equivalent to what the boosts used to give. this would do the trick

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

I agree. I don’t feel boosts that require SG for optimizing fusion is a fun mechanic, but I also don’t like the idea of players gaining an unfair advantage in stats over other players.

Topic: Outernauts / Suggestions!

Amazing suggestions. I only disagree with #6
1- agree 100%. I also feel recipe prices should be reduced to help newer players not feel they need to grind so much.
2- this would be nice. Farmable roids of all stats would be nice as well (since we can’t farm certain ones on pando. make sure they aren’t pvp challenges).
3- yes, lag sucks.
4- YES! I would love to have the %s and make logical choices based on them.
5- I agree. Each legendary should fill a niche or a role, or have some specific strength with inventive movesets.
6- DISAGREE. Inlarga is too powerfull to make breedable. If we all had amazing beasts that 2 shot everything, the game would unfair for the AI, thus encouraging BT farming rather than just being more powerfull.
7- Yes. I did receive some prompt feedback but it was essentially “we can’t do x for u”. Better feedback/responsiveness is something all customer service should gradually get better at.

Thanks Kauf

Topic: Outernauts / Poor breeding results since update

I asked IG the following:
“JackLFrost: IG, I’ve had an issue in the last week or so. It seems like I’ve been getting like 3 times as many 5 hours (with 2 sigs each breed) than before. Were Sigils nerfed last update?”

They replied:
“Insomniac_Games: Nothing was changed with Sigils”
“Insomniac_Games: We checked. – The numbers are all still the same.”

So the official response to this is that nothing was changed with Sigs.

Topic: Outernauts / Poor breeding results since update

Even better idea – keep the nerf, but make sigil farming easier to compensate. I would accept this nerf if I only need to spend 30 minutes a day farming sigils instead of an hour+

I’ve had the same bad experiences. Please add patch notes to this game, and please don’t nerf things like that so hard :(

Topic: Outernauts / Very Fun Game, But...

For me, the lag is the worst problem that could impact the game in the most positive way by fixing. Give us an option to tone down the animations and special effects to reduce the issues of Lag buildup. Sometimes I can play it fine, but certain levels or moments it becomes much too distracting, especially in a world that I want to be loosing myself in.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / what determines the number of cottages

Upgrading your Hero’s Monument allows for the construction of additional buildings. You may also get addition buildings to construct just based on progression (like at the start of the game when you get your first logging camp).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monsters' Den Chronicles] ok so my saved game just vanished.

I also lost my save today. Does that limit me to playing on Armor Games to keep my save file protected? Kongregate should really add this online storage feature to prevent things like this. It would also be nice to switch computers and play on your save file.
