Topic: War of Omens / Opinions and feedback

The 1 food/skull/gold is just different play styles, they are balanced imo, I actually think the food guy is the worst of the three. Sure he is fun to play with if you can get to the late game but I dont think he is the better of the 3.

I actually think the gold guy is the better of the 3, he can start producing cards earlier to put into his inventory and is not hampered by the requirement to fill your deck with food consuming minions to make him effective. In addition He is much harder for blue to restrict resources as you do not have to rely on a minion being drawn from your inventory to put down and have a way to get rid of your food.

Aside from upgrading the cards, All but one of green’s cards is 6 cost or higher and the one that is 5 cost you wouldn’t want to play on turn 1. Which makes the gold giving guy the only green hero that can play something on turn 1.

well green and red are both the same exact mechanics, they just go off at differant times, green really gets stronger the longer the game goes on and red zergs you out in the first 10 turns and then kinda stays at the same rough power level for rest of game which should be enough to kill a green player before his chain gets going.

The balancing for this game goes as thus. Everyone has insane power levels so it must be balanced because everyone can do crazy stuff.

Which is fine if thats what your into, which sometimes I am. But a good analogy would be MTG type 1, eventually everyone is going to get the best decks and its going to come down to who drew the right combo of cards in the opening hand every game. Which is fair in a way but arguably not balanced nor capable of sustaining entertainment value in the long run.

That said I invested some kreds, I enjoyed it and will play for a bit.

Topic: War of Omens / Opinions and feedback

I have enjoyed this CCG immensely since finding it. Im still deciding which way to rate it, I want to give it 5 star but I have some issues with some things that make me want to give it 4 star, I decided Im gonna think about it for a couple days while I play and see after.

That said the OP said for pro’s that the factions where balanced and I cant think of a bigger problem with this game then the balancing. It is horribly imbalanced, don’t get me wrong the game is fun and I enjoy playing all the factions/heroes available and the different play styles they have. But when you get down to facts, they are not fair and balanced.

Topic: Brave Tales / Fun Game, Some thoughts

4 Starred, i have enjoyed this game and will play it for a bit. I have already used some kreds on the game.

I will increase to 5 star because ultimately I do believe the game is worthy of it, however at the moment there are some bugs/glitches that need to get ironed out. Im sure the dev’s have already heard of them and will fix them soon.

Just in case they haven’t:

1.)Sometimes I lose the ability to move my units in campaign mode, I have to reload the game to get control back. I can still activate abilities they just auto move on their own, if I select them there portrait will have the yellow box around it but clicking elsewhere on the screen does nothing.
2.) Sometimes when I open the character menu to change my inventory the lower section will not load and the game hangs on this menu area with me unable to do anything. I can click the exit command on the menu but it does nothing, I have to reload the game to get control back.

Also. I really like the level Up system and the Rune system. I enjoy the almost random nature to the leveling system and from what Ive seen up to level 4 runes the pricing seems fair enough but I’ve heard it gets pretty out of control after level 5 which makes me worry this game will eventually be a pay to win game.

The initial tutorial and rewards got me a very nice sum of supplies but it also didn’t last more then half a day so I can see where the lack of supply generation in the game really hinders progress.

With leveling up I have found that after I picked the skill I immediately regretted it after seeing what the skill did exactly. For example it seemed awesome to get the Crush skill, the way it reads makes it sound useful. When I used it on my level 4 warrior it said I now had a 2% chance to do it… Which is hardly useful at all for a level 4, it would be much better to use it on 250hp or 10 attack power. Maybe way later in the game I can make some use out of that 2% but for now it was a total waste of a level up and I ahve to pay gold to fix it. Problems like that would easily be resolved by adding the exact increase you would get from leveling it up as opposed to trial and error and wasting various level ups in the early game.

All that aside, Ill up you to 5 stars when the glitches/bugs are reasonably under control, the other stuff is just Quality of Life suggestions that would possibly help make the game better.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Server Maintenance 6pm Pacific - 12AM Pacific 7/31/13

look at the top players for any given server and then come back and tell me how op priest is. Its being used by the middle tier, and yes its broken when put next to players who have rare and uncommon cards, because for many at that tier it is their first source of easily attainable 3 epics of the same kind. Not an OP card, if it where the top 10 would have more then 1 priest at any given time. Deal With it, because the smart players have moved on from the idea of it being OP.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Auction House Snipers

Ive managed to buy one card off the market, Ive been out bid plenty of times for mifs. Just because someone has a separate opinion then you doesn’t mean they are doing something wrong.

It seems like your mad that you get out bid on stuff. Which I do not understand. Its an Auction, not a store. You dont get first dibs on what you bid on.

It only makes sense to wait until the last hour or so to bid on a item, because then you dont have some bidding war jacking up the price of what you want to grab. If what you want is the lowest possible price then you should only bid on items with an hour left on them.

If your not going to be back for 16 hours, don’t expect a bid of 100 to smoothly win on a Mif for the next 16 hours.

I fail to see the flaw in the system, its an auction, this is how auctions go.

On Ebay the sole difference between here and there, is the option to designate a buy up to amount so that your bid will get put back in automatically until you reach the amount your willing to pay. I can assure you, in real world auctions that is not a feature of an auction, you have to “use an unreasonable level of obsessiveness to undercut sellers and bypass bid competition” because THAT’S how real auctions work.

If your asking for an ebay feature, I would say that I like your idea, its a good one and I support it, but saying because the game doesnt have it that the system is broken and being abused because of it…. is an absurd argument.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Auction House Snipers

if your willing to pay more then you should bid more. Your bidding the lowest possible amount of course someone is going to come in and pay 5 gold more then you.

You either Bid the lowest you can and hope to save a few gold getting a good deal, or you bid what you value the card at and if you get outbid then no biggie your not paying over what you value it at. Works as intended.

i love the line of thinking, that he leaves the server to go to another and suddenly all his old stuff is deleted because it cant possibly exist now that he is gone, as if he is the center of the universe and nothing else could exist without him there.

compensation was sent via mail.
I agree more events would be awesome, I would ike to see a weekly event of some form or another, and restarting the daily login when youve completed it would be nice as well.
Since noone has access to those rings Id say alls fair, although i would like to have them as well I dont think its a big deal.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / VIP 10 = 3478$

So…… The game is great. I of course play a lot since ive found it.

I of course went through all the VIP stuff a few times prior to this morning, got VIP 1 already and had been considering going to vip 3. So this time looking over the VIP system now that I really enjoy the game I actually gave it some thought to going over level 3 and went into the pricing. Im pretty upset over it.

First and foremost, obviously I wont be getting much further then VIP 3 if even that at this point. Mostly because of the scale of the pricing turning me off completely. Before now i could easily see myself sinking 40-60$ into the game to get maybe halfway up at the lowest and then maybe another 40$ down the road to get 2 levels each. I wouldnt be happy about basically paying 140-180$ to get to vip 10 but over the course of a year the devs would have that money from me. Which is 3 times the cost of a brand new AAA title game on release day.

That said. To reach the top, assuming you did it all in one go and bought bulk everything. It would cost you 3478$ to reach VIP 10.

Which, to say, is insulting at best.

I like the game and I will continue to play it for free beyond this point, maybe put a few more bucks into it over the coming months to get to vip 3.

I just feel the Dev of this game has completely Offended me with the price they have considered to be acceptable and I wanted to share that with everyone.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / 5/5 daily quest completion impossible today

i got twice the rewards personally, I did 100 before the oytage happened, then I got to go back and do everything except for a few of them, the daily quest I couldnt do 1/5 of and the levy quest I couldnt. I even managed to break the 350 for the week twice, so I got to pick two cards over teh course of the day. Overall Im happy. I can see why your not. But keep in mind if you wherent as lucky as me, that they did send you compensation, its in your mail. I got a bunch of silver, crystals and 5 medals. You should too. And considering this was kongregates issue and not the game maker, I am quite impressed.

Topic: Collaborations / Team LF Programmer

As title suggest, looking for a programmer.

We currently have a few artist each that have their own specialties such as a colorist, a inker, one that’s excellent at hand drawing and one that’s average at computer drawing but has some very good adobe cs5 skills. Honestly we plan to use mostly hand drawn stuff and convert it to digital. Not that we wouldn’t except more artist into the project that have better abilities at digital art, the more people the better I say.

We also have an excellent musician who makes his own music and plays every instrument known to man and comes equipped with all gear you could imagine and can get it crystal clear quality onto digital format and is capable of playing mostly anything you can imagine.

We do not have any narrative voice over actors, Im sure we can just figure something out with that though, its kind of a second thought at this moment.

Out of all the people listed above a few of us have some background in programming but nothing serious enough to even considering taking on a project like an original indy game. We are looking for someone to take on a large project. Obviously its not easy finding someone that can do that, we have exhausted all sorts of avenues, short of paying someone which we have no money for individually. At this point whoever came into it would dictate what language we used and would be very knowledgeable.

I play games a lot on kongregate so i figured I would ask on here, who knows maybe someone would like to at the very least discuss things with us and go from there. We have been pulling together the team for a bit now, we have a fairly good idea of the project we are going to be creating but things are open to interpretation as new ideas enter the fold.

Our next step if we do not get a programmer in the next few months is to set up a complete mock up of the project with art and audio. Post it to kickstarter and use whatever proceeds we can gather to hire a programmer.

If you are interested please post your email or some form of communication I can contact you at, I will bookmark this, check back every day, you can also message me in kongregate and I will read it of course.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Immortal Empire]My Opinion

This game is pretty fantastic. Of course everything can be improved, nothing is perfect.

An auto select next character when running out of things to do would go along way towards making a party enjoyable. As is i regret ever putting a second person into my group.

An Auto play option for the additional characters in your group would also be fantastic, much like in the first cinematic set of quests where you get multiple other units to help you, this basic AI applied to other party members would be amazing and make me want to have a party instead of leveling up one character and going gung ho with him.

Full Screen Mode Please. Seriously. This one option will turn my 4 star into a 5 star immediately.

whenever I slightly approach the edge of the game the mouse totally wigs out starts going all over the place.

This game is great, Im loving it, its a good take on rpg and actuall

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / This Game is not made with users in mind

Some high end games to come out recently do this to my system but I also have a dual card setup on a very small motherboard which compacts everything so heat build up quickly. For those games I usally just take off the side of the pc casing and make sure to clear out all the dust on the fan as not to force it to work harder then it has to with the extra weight on it. Usually works for a few weeks before I have to clean it off again. Either way taking the casing off the side really helps because your allowing a ton more air to freely get sucked into the computer rather then through those tiny little fan holes. The only down side is when you do that your inviting a ton more dust into the computer so you should get used to cleanign it often.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Been about a week, Here's my Thoughts

just to drive home the point of A.) I just got home from work and had seven request for help, of those request 6 where for false inquisitions and the other one was for siege masters. This is a constant thing that happens every single day all the time and that was the point made by saying what is viable or not, the hive mentality has spoken and dictated that above all other wanteds only two are mainly viable and the rest are after thoughts that yes will get done here and there but naturally this game is forcing players to repeat itself over and over and over again and in mass quantities, not to just a few people.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Been about a week, Here's my Thoughts

A.) Its nto a a question of ones tactics if all are doing the same thing. I agree there are many rewards to be had, tyhat was not the statement, the statement was to up the rewards ever so slightly of non used wanted’s, I just signed in after being away for a 8 hour sleep, I had a list of 12 people requesting help. Of those twelve 9 where false inquisition, 2 corsair flotilla and 1 for lord of shadows. This basic ratioo is all I see, every single day, day in and day out. It is not a statement of whats availabel and what am I overlooking in a personal sense, I know whats out there to be rewarded for, its a statement of observation of what I see on a daily basis from my list of 50 friends that play this game every day. Which btw I picked out the 50 most active players I could find and those are my friends list, I actually never had any kong friends before this game.

B.) Glad we are in agreement here :)

C.) The game will def be expanded thats for sure. And yes I totally agree with making it take time to finsih everything in the game including full level ups, the statement here was not to reduce the gold prices but to increase the reward for using that gold because the cost goes up considerably but the reward stays the same.

D.) Indeed I have read that, Im just throwing my two cents into teh ring because I like pvp alot and when I face lower level players I feel bad and when I face higher level players I feel aggravated.

E.) I want it now! But Im to lazy to do it myself, lol.

F.) I thought this was the place, i saw nival posting in other parts of this forum so I just assumed this was the place.

H.) I did not see you as being an ahole here, although I think you misunderstand half of why I was posting in teh first place. I think by definition my entire post was fully constructive and not complaining at all.
