If you can email support@mososh.com with your toon’s name, I can investigate this for you. If you remember what assaults they were, that will be helpful also. Thanks!

Topic: Cyberpunks vs Syndicates / How about a sale for haloween!

Well, it looks like the info “no more sales” was incorrect. There is a sale right now that ends today!

Topic: Cyberpunks vs Syndicates / Suggestions

Thanks for the questions – hopefully, this will help.

1. One soldier in CvS is not really worth the same as one ally in CoH so it’s not an apples to apples comparison. If you do raids (assaults) in both, I believe you’ll see that it is much more difficult to take down raids in CoH. I might offer soldiers as daily rewards in the future or I might not, but CoH was out for quite some time before that happened (can’t remember exactly how long). Anyway, there are lots of differences so trying to make a direct comparison isn’t always going to work.
2. This is actually the 2nd sale in CvS. If things were on sale all the time, it wouldn’t be a sale.
3. There are certain raids in CoH that only drop certain items. The Slisk Fang Necklace is a good example of a craft-able item from really rare drops. The reason it’s fun to get is because it’s a challenge. If players work together, these things will become much easier.
4. I’m probably going to make it so you can choose which tier you want to unleash. Until then, you have to rely on the lower level players to open up lower tiers.

I thought things were too easy – maybe now they’re too hard. It’s always a challenge to find balance, but that’s part of the game so to speak. I tend to be flexible and I’ll see where I can improve.

Good suggestions. I’ll see what I can do.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / Flash Problems

I suspect any flash issues aren’t the game – the game is html/javascript on the front-end. Kong uses a lot of flash to do different things. It could be some weird interaction but can’t be the game.

JGM2, I can only think of a couple reasons this might happen:

- You have a caching plug-in of some sort that is pulling the wrong info out of the cache.
- You’re actually refreshing the page and have something like this in the address bar:

Incrivele, thanks for the heads up on this stuff. I don’t see all of these things as bugs but I appreciate the feedback.

- I’ve fixed the issue where you can’t share more than one raid of a certain boss that you’ve created.
- Plat raids don’t follow the formula. That’s as intended b/c it’s much more difficult to acquire plat than gold.
- The formula only applies to raids you create. Increasing the cost of creating a raid because you joined someone else’s would eliminate the benefit of working together.
- Multiple tabs will not update with the correct information. This is just a technical limitation in the same way if you play the game in two different browsers, you can see incorrect information moving from one to the other. Fortunately, everything is mastered on the server so you just need to refresh to get the correct info.
- Summoning just provides a random raid. Your suggestion is a good one. I think another improvement might be to provide a raid based on what is currently in the world (e.g. something that’s not currently out there).

Guys, new players are those who don’t know what you’re talking about. I.e. they have no idea that people are spawning multiple raids of the same boss and don’t care because they are working on leveling and getting enough energy/stam to where they could participate. While I dislike going through major changes (maybe I should just stop) as it tends to upend the status quo, trying to improve things is part of my nature. Believe it or not, there are some who like the change. See the Updates thread for more info.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / TWS Penalized

I’m not going to say who was responsible. That’s for the guild to sort out and deal with if they want. I will say that they obviously tested what the limits of abuse were and went beyond them. There was a rule limiting levels lower than 20 from attacking high level players so you can’t create low level alts and give your guild wins. They leveled their alts to 20 to get around the rule. I increased the level for that rule to 50. They added low level alts to the guild so they could use hundreds of additional low level alts to attack and lose to the new guildies. Just not the kind of behavior you can allow in a game of this sort.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / done with this damn game!

Just to set the record straight (I’m a dev) – all items are stored on the server. It’s impossible for everything to get wiped out. The game has been live for over a year and nobody has ever lost their inventory. This was most likely a client-side javascript issue which a refresh (CTRL-F5 or similar) would fix.

This game doesn’t use flash – html and javascript and the game is not going to die. The game is HTML5 compatible ;-).

Where are you trying to look at it? I check the profile and market, and it is working for me. Here is the url of the image:

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / Platinum Nerf from a Design Perspective

I want to reply to the original post from Sir Valimont at least along the lines of one concern. I basically agree with you and don’t want you to think I’m trying to exploit players. At the same time, I don’t want players exploiting the game. The game wasn’t changed in relation to new players. The change impacted the farming of lower tier raids by higher level players. I’d argue that the game has given more over time rather than less. Let’s take a look at the Rings of Summoning. These rings unleash raid bosses for free whereas those same raid bosses used to cost platinum or at least the only way to summon them was with platinum. The “free” bosses are the same tier that is currently appropriate for the player (usually 4 or 5) while the boss that was destroyed might be 2 or 3. A net win for the player. Given the high plat drop rate when a high level player solo’ed a lower tier (or had relatively few attackers involved), this made or makes farming lower tiers very attractive – raid master, raid killer, 1st place/2nd place, etc plat bonuses in addition to the chance of summoning a higher tier stam boss. The strategy was simply launch as many gold (energy) bosses as possible and farm as much plat and stam raids as possible. The player can also share the “free” raids so many benefit not just the owner of the ring. I think the changes that were made to reduce high level players farming of lower tier raids for plats were “fair” and don’t really impact any new players. The changes reduce the plat drop rates if the boss is lower than tier 4 and the player is level 80 or higher.

Online games are a constant evolution and some features are added that “break” an existing design. It’s a challenge to maintain the balance, and the players get to judge how successful additions and changes are. I thought the rings would be fun for the players who have them and benefit those players who don’t always have the gold/platinum for a raid of their own as free raids were created. There were obviously other “side effects” and I really don’t mind for the most part. However, I did feel like the system was being abused.

Bkilgore1, I believe the term is “pulling your leg”. Don’t believe everything you read on the interwebs. 1149 is currently the max.

v1sag3, please try it now.

MydizWeljump, I’ll look at ie8. You might try Chrome. I haven’t tested popup blocker and smart screen filter – it’s just too difficult to test every combination that people use. If you can tell me which weapons don’t provide info, I’ll get them fixed.

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / challenge fixs

Actually, we’re debating what to do. We agree with the sentiment. For example, we could expire the challenges nightly (or every other day) and credit the challenger. Or we could give the challenger the option to take 2 free points or leave the challenge after 24 hours or something like that.

I’m looking into the issue where the “spend stat pts” link is in the wrong place. If you can post what browser, version and operating system you are using, that will be helpful in tracking down the issue. Here is a site that will give you the system info necessary if you want to just copy/paste the line at the top that has your browser info: http://www.zytrax.com/tech/web/browser_id.shtml

Hella, I’ve seen that happen. It was caused by some sort of browser plug-in that was interfering with the game’s code. It was a while ago but if I remember correctly, the plug-in cached some of the code and was supposed to speed up browsing the web.
