Topic: Star Era / can not load game S17 18(fixed)

I hate to pile on but, with 50/60 days for login for limit break sirius, the server down means I lose alot of time invested in this game. Do they give compensation here or not? I’m guessing the latter.

If you have the time to grind, you can make reputation rep to 35 with epic creatures, then if you have leg/godly, work your way to 40 rep. I only use tower coins to increase my rep beyond 40.

This post already has broken down what rep u need and reputations crests needed:

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Happy New Year! - Notice

Really mature and insightful post from a longtime mod and player. If we all took your advice, there probably wouldn’t be many posts in forums (*cough*all complaints*cough).

I hope more people can take the long-term view to enjoy the game for what it is, a fictional world but with real people with real feelings.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Clear Rumors

DNA sold his account to a player who played as Achluophobia (for I think $2000), then DNA tried to get his account back by complaining to Kongregate that his account was stolen from him. Kongregate suspended the account, and Achluophobia quit in frustration while DNA kept the money he got, but never got his account back.

Blarbal is a very good player but some people would argue there are other strong players. Macdrum, dgg, krozman, just to name a few.

I frankly think Rojkod is the biggest whale right now (45000 card power in 1s and 2s), but Aang and a few others do have a bunch of awakened that make them scary.

There are definitely people who have spent over $10,000 since 50,000 gold recharge is $1250 in real dollars and many players have definitely done the 50,000 gold recharge for all the black opals they have.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / 2v2 Queue Broken

Krozman, you and your partner are over 1250 2s score, over 300 pts over most ppl in top 10, and 600 pts greater than most of the top 200. I don’t know what you would gain by fighting people much lower than you to increase your lead even more. If it’s for the fun of the game, most people find fighting people so much greater in score not much fun, hence the long wait times.

I agree wait times are long, but considering how we arrived there (more hp for all, whale-guppie gap even larger than ever), it’s no wonder people have left 2s. I would do more 2s myself but if its just for the daily quest, I’d rather just surrender twice than fight spenders like yourself or fight for 40 min for one fight. The fun has disappeared for me because I have no chance against most whales, and the time invested is not worth the wait.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Server cross compensation?

Fair enough, I apologize for that rough response.

It’s just that there are many, many threads where people say, “Give us compensation! I demand it!” I was in a contemptuous mood because it seems like too many people demand free things so quickly like that will solve the problem or even ameliorate the seething masses. You may have a point that it’s tougher but seriously, what kind of compensation can they truly give that would even the playing field? You are at a disadvantage if the field has gotten tougher, and no amount of compensation other than giving you free godly cards would make up for that deficit.

The server population was decreasing to the point where people were waiting 30 min for 2s. That’s why there was a server merge. To expect to be top 8 as before is unrealistic. My guild also is suffering where we struggle for top 10 in cross for showdown. I personally probably will struggle to be top 200 cross in 1s or 2s.

What kind of compensation is appropriate for whining? More people means less rewards for everyone.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Nerf cull or we quit!!!

Either people’s servers are behind Stone Ruins (the oldest server) in terms of strategy or in terms of cards acquired. This discussion is futile if you haven’t seen it with your own eyes that cull cannot be stopped.

I’ve seen trolls, Karma, gringheist, sylvi, Angels, all sorts of walls, even a Chosen One godly Ragnar, and cull still takes them all out. You have to realize that with cull’s cd at 2 when reset (after not using), the warrior can wait out till he/she’s got the perfect setup. If there’s a ds, gringheist, Karma, or some other tank that needs taking out, Alice can do wonders. Also, 2x, 3x cull takes out everything else, in addition to all the hero damage. The new thing is pan with last stand, godly encourage x 2, swift raid x2 on any unit, plus cull x 2. That’s 4+8+6 = 18 additional damage to a unit, so mifzuna for example would be 22 damage. Alice would be 25 damage.

In 1s, it’s different, since its more about timing, and you can block 2 lanes with stuff.

I have yet to see an effective 2v2, or 4v4 anti-cull deck.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Nerf Cull

Krozman, you are a really skilled player who probably was the first to truly embrace cull and all its possibilities with pan, last stand, etc.. But now, people with less skill then you have begun to copy you to the point where even the really poor players can win with a couple of culls. People don’t mind losing to you because of your skill (and because of your investment), but when people lose to crappy players (who haven’t spent much either) just with 1 or 2 culls, then you can see how the frustration reaches the current boiling point.

I understand that you invested heavily because you saw the opportunity, but even you have to see that your winrate has gone way up in 2s to the point where, I doubt you have been defeated yet with chaosangel in 2s. If you feel you are being rewarded for your skill and investment then fine, but you have to admit, your wins are getting ridiculously easy.

Personally, I have no horse to back in this. It doesn’t affect me personally since I rarely do 2s nor spike. I just see what’s going on with fellow players and watching their frustration makes me think this current road will take this game into oblivion.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Nerf Cull

As I predicted, 3 out of 4 teams in Stone Ruins showdown final 4 (GameFuse1,2, Yahoo, Facebook cross server), used cull and LoA won, with krozman dominating with his 3 culls (now he has godly cull if you didn’t know).

Showdown, 2s is over as I see it in terms of playability and competition. You have a very very small chance of winning against cull, and only if you somehow manage to swift death their culls out of their hand. I saw a godly ragnar buffed with Chosen One be wiped off the field with 2 culls.

Please, I beg of you, please reconsider adjusting/removing cull for the future of the game. People are quitting, people aren’t spending, and people aren’t going to play your broken game for much longer.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Nerf Cull

I read the entire thread previously on cull. But this idea that the developers can’t change cards that already came out seems contradictory to me. I distinctly remember seeing cull in its original thread, and it saying that it would do damage to all units, not to heroes though. Then it came out and it had damage to heroes added.

Remember when the developers put out the card, Celestia, that would give +2 attack to itself when it cured a fellow unit? Then people bought it thinking, “Great, what an awesome card,” only to find out that the card Celestia gave itself +2 life, not +2 attack. Developers apologized for the typo they said. People spent money on one thing but getting something else, but were out of luck. Too bad, so sad, said the developers.

You can read it here:

So the developers said it was a mistake, but didn’t refund anybody. Now we have cull which promised one thing and gave even more, which is great for those who bought it, but penalizes all of us who didn’t. Where’s the consistency?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Nerf Cull

Proposal: Cull must be nerfed or changed to only cause unit damage, not hero damage.

Ok, we’ve seen how 1.5 hp affects 4v4 and 2v2 now. It makes matches longer and less people willing to fight that long as a result.


Right now, warriors with cull win nearly every arena match, whether 1s, 2s, or probably 4s.

If you have 4 culls you can win every match because you wait to encourage some unit till its like 20 attack, cull 2-4 times, clears the board AND also hits each hero for 40-80 attack which is game over. And now that heroes have more hp, warriors can bide their time to time it properly so no need to even rush, just have 3x encourage, 3x cull and you’re set.

This is, imho, killing the game, since no one wants to go into a match knowing full well they have no chance of winning. Spike is a necessary evil, but cull is a unnecessary and comical farce.

Summary: Please consider that the game’s survival depends on people willing to pay and play. With cull, people are doing neither because even if they pay they cannot win against cull; moreover, why play if it’s a guaranteed loss?


Thank you for your time.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Updated version of VIP boss tips?

For initial rush of calvary- spearmen, sorann, are your friends.
Later, awakened templars, abbess, healers, Augustus and armored units appear. Use whatever tanks you got to block. Sunder armor, holy damage best to break through.

Ryli, Vel Assar, Gringheist will help block lanes, obviously, but not everyone has them. Zeeva, Onslaught Lawrence, Smasha, even some of those dragons that absorb only 3 damage a hit help. Desperate Soul maybe, but can die easily if holy damage reaches it.

Boss has no spells, but in turn, you should bring a lot yourself. Mages pet/freeze, priests sanct/refuge, rangers db, warriors slash etc..

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Monster Talk] Spike Nerf Alert !!

You know what no one talks about?

How 75% of the available cards are useless. Does anyone even use goblins? Or ogres (besides Smasha)? Or beasts (besides Wingy Emperor)? That’s like 100 cards from 3 races that no one cares about. How about all those useless demons (eg. imps), angels (eg. dominons), undead (eg. vampires) and halfblood (eg. sylvi) ? And I haven’t even mentioned all the walls which are beyond ridiculous. I think I’m underestimating the percentage. It’s probably closer to 80-90% of cards that I personally never use for anything besides building reputation.

Why do the developers even bother making new cards that most of us hate (eg. the Hermit for one)? I could name maybe half a dozen good mythos cards among those 100+ cards (Odin, Zeus, Set, Ra, Pan, Khnum, Freya for eg.) For every good card they put out, they give 10 bad ones. And I don’t mean the epic or less cards. Even the legendary or godly of some cards are ridiculously bad (Godly Elven Fire mage anyone 2cd/3attack/2health?)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Monster Talk] Spike Nerf Alert !!

Please refer to what server you play on before comparing how high in arena you are. Being top 8 in some new server is not comparable to Kevinke6, who plays on the oldest server Stone Ruins, and has won the end of season 1v1 tourney.

As for myself, I’m also on Stone Ruins, vip0. The only time I’ve ever beaten Ray, blarbal, or Aang, (the very best 1v1 players on Stone Ruins imho) was when some lone Tariel broke through and just ground them down because they had no vigilance available. It always seemed like a cheap way to win so I quit rushing. Now when I face any huge whale, I probably lose with my power deck, but if I do win, at least I feel I earned it.

Spiking hate is misguided however. I feel like people can play whatever way they like, but the one shortcoming is that too many spikers leads to less playing for all. Less participation leads to longer wait times, leading to even more apathy and less playing. Eventually, we are where we are right now where only the very top players play alot while most of us just do the minimum because it’s less fun doing so.
