I think the purpose of this post is, for mages, the lower the hp is, the stronger you hit with a talisman. So for those of us who had heal raised a bit before talisman came out, we’re at a handicap with the talisman. Not a very stupid idea if you look at it that way.

I get you now.

My only response to this is that if you believe everything that does not benefit you is harming you, your vision is extremely narrow. Would you prefer that I had never built the defenseless Mystic at all, so that no one would have had the chance to hit it? Even if I had succeeded, I cannot see what possible harm it could have done to anyone. King of course knows why I did this since I explained it to him. My goal was to get attention for my offer and to highlight how even supposedly fixed bugs still remain in the game.

I’m gonna ignore the fact that you scripted, doesn’t matter much in this case. However, I’m quite interested in getting to know what you believe is so bad about the game architecture? And if you actually can give those things to Playmage all for free then I’m not against it. I even think it would be foolish of Playmage not to accept that offer. They’ve said it themselves that they can’t put down enough resources on this game simply ‘cause it’s not profitable enough.


To make it very short and simple, the way this game is built, it consumes way too much bandwidth and memory for no reason.


To mention some details, this game uses HTTP for everything. Every time the player does anything, a request is sent to the server over HTTP, just like when visiting any web page. The response sent by the server is a piece of HTML markup, which is then placed into the correct place on the screen. There are also some invisible tags in the response for updates to energy and such, but at the basic level all updates are done this way. The problem in this is that the server sends preformatted HTML, much of which is static and never changes, and when it does, no checks are made whether it has changed and an update is necessary. In short, there is a massive overhead of unnecessary HTML markup in the responses from the server. To make a cautious estimate, the amount of bandwidth Playmage is using and paying for could be cut at least by half.


To give an example, take the class selection screen. Every time it is opened, the server sends all of the HTML shown, even when nothing has changed. And when the class is changed, instead of deactivating the old class and activating the new one, the server again sends a complete copy of everything. Nearly 100% of the server response in this case is unnecessary overhead, a single byte to indicate the class change was successful would be enough. This is not an isolated incident either. Removing a single item from bank results in reloading the entire bank screen, and the response contains a copy of the inventory table as well. When changing the equipped weapon, the response contains new copies of the inventory and equipment tables – two copies if done from the inventory screen – as well as a new skill table and other smaller updates. Nearly all of that is information the game already has.


What makes matters worse is that the way the game layouts are built is extremely outdated. Every screen is made of tables nested within tables, which is absolutely terrible. There is just no other way to put it, there is no excuse to still build layouts like that during this millenium. The proper way would be to use styles, which would significantly reduce the amount of markup needed and thereby reduce the overhead.


The single worst mistake though is the fact that since the requests are the same as loading any normal web page, they also get cached as such. When the game is played, the browser cache quickly fills up with countless copies of battle action responses as well as every screen and view you could think of. While I was still playing actively, this would cause any browser I tried the game on to slow down and eventually crash. This is even more unintelligible since there exists a HTTP header named Cache-Control which would be perfect for preventing this. If Playmage used it that is.


I would prefer not to be rude about it, but I cannot avoid the conclusion that some of the people who made this game were incompetent. There is no other explanation for why they would have built the game in a way that continuously wastes their money on unnecessary bandwidth.

Best leave that to you.

Topic: Dream World / dust merchant accept is a loss. :(

lets say 1 mist price is x and fairy dust price is y. the accept button for me is 50,000,000 and mist is 85,000,000 (roughly) so it’s 139,000,000 for the dust. market price is 101,000,000 (roughly) why bother when i can get a dust for 38,000,000 coins less?

DUST MERCHANT IS RUBBISH
dust merchant is more expensive is what i’m saying

lv 77-83: crystal extended chance

Hey KingK,
why is it that Fallen has 4 times the hp of a mystic wonder, can’t be hit by the top 100 and yet the dmg cap is lower than the cap on mystics?
I already used up 2500 mists out of my 5000, dealt 5 bil to Fallen and it still isn’t anywhere near dead. At this rate i’ll hit mist cap before i get my long awaited fallen bonus and can’t make any use of it (like most of the last times)
Would you please do some balancing BEFORE releasing the next expansion?

+1 +99999999999999999999999999999999999999
People have been demanding improvemens on MW and Fallen balancing for months now in this thread and since you complain about DW not creating enough revenue anymore you might consider actually doing something about the complaints before pissing the last paying customers off by totally not answering them at all.

Had a suggestion in regards to Mystic War. As everyone knows the first 4-5 mystics will go up within 30 minutes of the previous war ending and build starting however there always seems to be a drag for the last 2. Think there needs to be something that would encourage a guild to go for the 6th or 7th mystic. Possibly the 6th mystic being given 50% more health and the 7th mystic being given double health compared to the first 5. As well as this, there could be a greater XP boost or XP boost from that mystic would stay until next war phase begins or until guild puts up another mystic (should they go for 2 in a row, to prevent gaining a much larger boost)

then no-one would go for 1-5 then there would be no war..

Currently that place is occupied by the current ally and her stats (name, happiness, level, exp), but I would rather be able to switch allies quickly. I dont need to see her stats.
