Topic: Rise of Mythos / Let's play it purely nimble

I’m Vip0 and I play nimble ONLY when I’m pretty certain i’m up against whales, level 57 or higher. If, on the other hand, I see a bunch of level 50 and lower, I play rush. Both as ranger.

Some of my best wins have come against whales, but it’s very dependent on luck of the draw. If those cd3 spearman come out early, I have a chance. If too many skills come out or those cd4 mages, then I’m screwed. I’ve played around with other cards that are hard to kill with one shot like Desperate Soul or maybe some Undead Skeleton, but Zeeva, Juliet, and Cain seem to be more likely cards to include.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Gamefuse, Gamefuse, Gamefuse..

Every single MMO game that comes from China has these same issues. Yes, that sounds like a blanket stereotype, but I’ve seen these same tactics from too many Chinese game developers:

- poor or nonexistent customer support
- promises of future changes or fixing bugs followed by non-action
- false advertising of rewards and/or misrepresenting what your money gets you
- blaming all of the above on miscommunication or saying that English isn’t their first language

If any of these unethical business practices were under the jurisdiction of the US, these shysters would be indicted for fraud. I can’t tell you how many people have been duped into spending money on these games, hoping for one thing, and getting another.

Really, it’s like watching the People’s Republic of China use capitalism to the most extreme—bleeding us dry with their substandard products because they know there’s always another sucker.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Ancient Den

Boss also does holy damage and lots of double stabs to kill units instantly. Having spearman or using a wall to block a portal is a must. Unit management is important, as saving units for the portals, as well as the end attack when boss saves units and unleashes most of his nids.

Okay, just has to be said:

….actually very illuminating topic. When it comes to combining for legendary cards, I figured it’s better to just combine 2 at a time, albeit with 5% chance, because get more materials if fail, and save on cards. Wrong! Failed every time, maybe at least 100 times. Only times I’ve gotten a legendary is when I’ve combined at least 4. So that’s a real world perspective.

Like the title said, with the new update providing new halfblood and undead creatures, will the alchemy lab provide opportunities to fuse the new 1.2 creatures?

When exchanging gold for leaves at the exchange, after transaction, receive no leaves, but lose gold. This is after depositing the requisite amount of gold/silver needed to exchange for leaves.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Level 80 - 100 upper level play

You’re asking the question that people have been asking for 4 months, and unfortunately, there is no answer you’re going to like. Just don’t believe it when they say they are working on it, be patient blah blah, because they don’t have the cojones to admit that it isn’t happening, nor will ever happen.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Special Offer for April Fools' Day

Wow. Just speechless.

The brazen, self-serving, arrogance to offer a deal which is WORSE than the one for one diamond deal you offered before. Now you have the temerity to ask people to buy diamonds when your game is in the crapper?!

This craven approach and head shakingly poor decision making makes me sad for anyone who paid real money for your ventures. The depths that you will descend to are inexcusable.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Changed My Rating to 1 Star ...

I suggest everyone to go back and change their rating back to something appropriate. The game started out fun, then led to dreary boredom, then seething anger. If I could give it a negative star rating, I would.

Topic: Shadowland Online / News: SLO Server Maintenance Announcement on March. 22th 2012

It’s a flat out lie that they are selling you. There is no area beyond level 80 because they haven’t found other developers to plagiarize content from. So for them to create from scratch new content is laughable at best, and disingenuous at worst.

I suggest not waiting anymore. We’ve heard the same refrain, “Please be patient,” for at least 3 months now, and not one significant new content has come out. Nada. Zero. Sure they tweaked damage and defense, the promised new quests? No change. Promised alliance techs? Again, not one new tech. So for them to make the quantum leap and provide area 80-100 would take a massive leap into fantasyland. i.e. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. At least not in this lifetime.

Dear makf01, FeatherLite1992, dodgerfan99, odbizzle, TopMaster360, thanks for your suggestion, we will consider about it.

Thought I was a zqgame clone, didn’t you?

Figured an automated response is the only logical reason that the developer replies to EVERY #!@ thing with the exact same canned post. It’s like they don’t have any emotion of any sort, but just reply with, “Thank you, we will consider it.”

The biggest indictment against this game is the absolute silence in game and at this board. There’s one chat comment per hour it seems in the game. Here at the boards, one post per day at best. No cares cares anymore.

I just come to this board to see incompetence at work. Watching a company annoy, frustrate, and ostracize its customer base is a case study in how NOT to run a company.

[edited] <—thanks for censoring a humorous and not expletive laden comment.

Again, why do you bother with these pointless and meaningless updates that no one asks for or cares for?

We want updates that extend the game into level 80 and beyond like you promised!

Topic: Shadowland Online / Study2: Does INT influence Kalex hitrate

This is really useful. Thanks for all your work.

I can’t help but wonder: Why spend all this time doing a single fight over and over, besides being altruistic?

Then I realize that there is nothing else to do in the game anyhow, so why not figure out a few things.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Where is level 80-100

Double gold for legion = at most 9K gold. That’s good enough to fortify, oh wait, it’s not good enough to fortify even one time. I’d have to do 12 legions to fortify one time.

FeatherLite, when you say alot of people would disagree, I realize it’s your opinion, and not a fact.

A fact would be, your posts make you to be a sycophant of zqgames, and not a true representation of a vast majority of discontented customers.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Where is level 80-100

“I wish you can understand our difficulties.”

I wish that also.

The first major update made the mages overpowered, physical heroes underpowered, and all enemies much stronger. The 2nd major update reversed the mages power, but keeping all changes from the first update. In between have been smaller updates that included, photoshopping the heroes faces to hide their similarities to other games, small cosmetic icon changes, and special events that change nothing about the game itself.

If one could go back to before the first update even happened, saving yourself 2 months of work that ultimately most players hated, things would be much better. The last 2 months have been a series of missteps, corrections to those missteps that have led to even greater problems.

You could have saved yourself 2 months of headache by not even bothering with changing things, just concentrating on opening up area 80-100, and your player base would not have been eroded to the point of oblivion.

What bewilders me is how much time is spent changing things no one complains about. We don’t care about the icons, or what picture shows up on the spinning wheel. We don’t care if we get double battle achievements of double gold for legions.

What we do care about is the missing things programmed into the game that hint of something greater. Like tech achievements of alliances that are there, but can’t be activated. Like the elder promising more quests, but not actually having any. Like area 80-100 that tantalizes those who have been seeking this promised land.

And most importantly, all this equipment that requires a higher level (+80) that gets dropped, but we can’t use, BECAUSE WE CAN’T GO BEYOND LEVEL 80! You give us glimpses of what this game could be, but ultimately don’t deliver on these tantalizing, yet empty promises, that make us so infuriated, and frustrated.
