Akin to above.
Suffice to say PvP took a hit in the last day or so.

OK after 4 tries to get a decent match… this is the closest for that team.
Any clue as to when the balance issues will be addressed?

Topic: Little Bandits Web / PvP Matchup

What changed the last day or two? The matchups have been way off.

A trio of 66 Epic 65 Epic 1 Rare is in no way equal to 32 33 33 (all Rares).

Dunno if they’re power leveling the little one, or knowingly throwing off the
match system (since these are matched to 30’s, aka EZmode from chat discussion).

Even my 40’s rare(not promoted) are matched with 45-60’s Epic/Promoted rares.
The higher the level, the greater the difference when levels are considered. Not to
mention equipment is painfully not taken into consideration.

Same issue I e-mailed you about a week or two back, repeatable

If you have 11 points from the bounty, get the 9 point win…20 points.
You get the second wind but not the ruby, when both should be awarded.

Healing Waters 6

Used a second wind in the boss fight when my team popped back up
the enemy had no life bars and apparently infinite life. The two that
were down to under 100 life both survived concentrated hits.

So after going round and round eventually get taken down after
doing over 2k damage to each badguy. So wait a few hours, get
water back for another try.

This time defeat them and it just gets stuck.

All of the GUI and HUD clears and the stars spin, but nothing progresses.

At this point I’ve blown through 2 second winds, a lot of water,
actually beaten the badguys. yet have zero of the rewards for
doing any of this. Getting frustrated to the point of moving on,
as this kind of roadblock towards the endgame just kills your
mood and enthusiasm for the game.

Also, similar issue with the bounty Diamond above. Though the
Epic I had gotten with the first diamond popped up about
6 hours after being missing. So I have both and Epic and
rare from the same diamond. Weird.

Edit: guessing there was some kind of data check. The Epic
explorer I had gotten the first time is now gone. The rare
surgeon is still around though.

It was under 500. I was not worried about the copper to be honest,
more that it was zeroed out. But speaking of resources!

Less a bug, more a game mechanic issue:
Wood! Wood is used more than the other resources, but has
the same drop rate. It’s a real ugly choke and a bit of a progress
breaker. While some shortages are nice for a challenge the
wood one is quite silly.

When i’m waiting for every wood drop and have 20+ of every
other resource, some re-balancing needs to be addressed.
Drop rates, production cost, processing output… something.

This last bit might already be part of the Wanted/Bounty fix.
Level 35 two stars are not equal to level 40 three+ stars.
Last few times I’ve done a search for rivals, it lists only folks
way above my level and capabilities. Promotion, ability boosting,
and items do not seem to be part of the match formula either.

Level 24, and upgraded the lab.

It did the lab/promotion demo. Which, in theory, should have used 250 copper.
Instead when done my copper was zeroed out. Wow. OK now that sucks.
Fix please!

Yes, I know you get two free maxed uncommons and they are
smushed and you’re given the result. I didn’t ask for that or get
any warning my copper could be zilched. Less than enthused,
do not want.

Topic: Technical Support / Cannot see my avatar.

In your screen shot, your avatar is showing in
the upper right, the small version everyone sees.
So it is working.

The issue for the big avatar seems local?
Double so if you have browser issues, which
indicates a much larger issue.

Topic: Contract Wars: General / Terminal2 Box

What’s funny is these tards are then going ‘look at my K/D’
joining clans and doing the same. Making the clan look bad.

They’re a one trick pony and suck outside of their using
a glitch for kills. Those boxes should have been removed
long ago, until a fix can be made.

Not to mention I’ve reported a pile of folks doing this, and
they’re still there. Same account and ID, doing it day after day.
At least in HC you can jack them if they are on your team.

Topic: Technical Support / Firefox freezes when loading a game on Kongregate, but no other browser does

Same issue with FF and multiplayer games that get user data from kong.
From friends that play dead zone, seems they have the same issue.

These games work fine on other sites even in the same browser session.

Ironically, unity games work just peachy. Only flash games have
this issue. Updated flash after the problem started yesterday,
right around the same time the original poster reported.

update IE/Waterfox – same issue do not use chrome, so cannot test

For me I don’t mind. It takes time, yes, but it is possible to get a decent arsenal with a bit of patience. I agree with sharoozimran433, the reason why they made this game so they could make a living.

Then put it on Steam with a price point.
The nickle and dime stuff for Pay To Win is old.

The long term environment for such games is dismal, and
always has been as a business model. It’s a way to get
fast cash and rip as many as possible in a short term.

In development seminars it’s called the ‘wedding present’
model. Since everyone comes and brings gifts, has a
nice time, then is told to go home. Only the married
couple that organized the reception goes away with
gifts and money.

This site is littered with dozens of dead FPS shooters
that went P2W and died a year or two later. The people
who paid through the nose have their stuff, but no one
plays them anymore.

Topic: Card Hunter / Kreds Math

As a heads up the expansion packages conflict with the Kreds
purchase amounts which will certainly hurt your sales long term.

While I’m sure you have your set amounts and values before
coming to Kong, Kreds are usually purchased in blocks. So
most games look to arrange their purchases within those

The pricing is a bit awkward within Card Hunter for someone
to just get in one click or easily. I would have to make two
purchases to get exactly 275 for example. A 225 (200+bonus)
and then a second purchase for 50 kreds (no bonus).
The 160 runs into a similar/same issue. Even the gamestop
cards that can be used to not match the pricing structure.

I have no easy solution for you. I just know from experience
these little things can often create long term sales problems.

Keep going, Keep Creating.

Topic: Card Hunter / save the trees

Trees for me is the most difficult. You need a certain draw,
and to know how to use the ‘take a second action’ cards.

Also the badguys need to be unlucky. I know enough that
if first turn my trees get combustion I might as well restart.

Chess map is knowing their moves and avoiding the direction
they can attack. If you have the edge, and can take a hit,
it is possible to have chess pieces hurt friendlies as part
of a strategy.

Third map for me has always been the easiest. Killing a
straggler or two for the VP star on the way to the gold
box at the end can speed things up, but is a risk/reward thing.
Save a move card so you have two if things get close.
You can then sprint away from a pack.

Topic: Card Hunter / Bugs

Actually on that same map I’ve had the same mobs blatantly
breaking LOS and range requirements once or twice in a game.
Only on that map/module though. Filed a bug report.

Even had one where I blocked, got the card used from them,
and could not use it back because there was no LOS.

In the picture shown though it is a target square spell and
could be a dodgy line that included that space. So as Band
said, it ‘clipped’ you at an angle on that one. That said, it
really should follow the same algorithm as LOS. To have two
standards and rules for the same card application is asking
for problems, cheats, exploits, and bugs in the future.

That map the demon in the back has a fireball too. Which is
a square and burst targeting deal, had me double take the first
time. It had me checking los more often after it, which was
how I found it was cheating. Best one was a spark that shot
right through a wall.

But you can’t sell usable items. The game blocks it. Only treasure items are sellable.

That restriction gets lifted later on in the game.

It’s really rather early in the game. Just enough so you don’t shoot yourself
in the foot selling stuff silly nilly though. I still use a lot of my low level
earliest finds, and I’d have sold them rather than rotating them in as needed.

Have to love a game that encourages the secret (or not so secret) hoarder
inside of all gamers. As someone else said, learn to use the filters. They
really help with mid game navigation and I can’t picture late game equipping
without them.

Thanks to folks who posted help stuff. Loot Fairy in particular was golden.
