Topic: Siege / Why people play/don't play this game

Limited PvE and PvE vs level balance.

Been sieging with half my energy.
Now Level 7… Will have to siege/grind until level 10 to continue.
That’s not only boring, but is not going to happen.

Siege as developed relies on a large player base at your level.
When right now the pickings are so limited as to be almost no xp
for any siege target. It would take me longer than I have been
playing to date to even make 1/3 of a level.

Bottom line? It has gotten grindy and boring in just a few days of casual play.

Topic: Siege / Bug at game start

Was the colors thrown at me, didn’t have a choice in the matter.

After a few packs, I had a green and a blue deck that worked well.
The red one, not so much. Later it became a little better, just not as
strong as the blue or green ones yet.

Forgot to update: After a day the tutorial let me do that part again,
this time without jumping the gun after I took a card out as directed.

Topic: Siege / Bug at game start

Ran into this problem

.
Which means i’m stuck…
.

When you force actions, you either force them all the way;
or the game will get stuck. Oh and on reload and cache clear,
it loaded me to the same spot. So, if this isn’t fixed you’ll
just get abandoned by new players when it goes out of beta, fast.

Happy bug hunting!

Topic: Contract Wars: General / NQSS Please Read

Was just on a Singapore hardcore server.

It was a joke. Everyone was using hacks, and even
asking about them and comparing settings. Glad it
was full and i didn’t get to play. Even so it was a
learning experience.

They were even joking about using the report function
on each other, since apparently it does pretty much nothing.

Order for explosive substances – from the bunker quest line:

This is set to 0 made every day at reset since the 8th or so.
Making it pretty much impossible to complete. There is no timer,
or note that it should be completed within a day. It was properly
accumulating for the three days before the 8th and the
explosives (but not the dynamite) was a green check as done.

The check went away on the 8th.

The make 20 dynamite gotten a day after this quest was added to my queue
has since been completed. The make 8 dynamite in the “Order” quest, remains
incomplete.

Usually I enjoy playing with/against storm folks.
Though lately they’ve been as bad as some Aces1 players for using exploits.
Not all mind you. Just enough for me to notice the change as of late.

This camo thing explains the phantoms i guess. Has anyone tested to make sure?

Spicepoet, if you read this, visit my place and ice the tree and loot the snowdrift for snowballs. Will take a few days before snowdrifts are common in friendzones, I suppose.

Very wise. I’ve added one to my community area too.

Found a glitch where my ice block is made into a statue
by another player (prompting me to buy another).
Not sure how it is done or how to repeat. Apologies. :/

Guys you NEED to plan better before implementing.

Still getting glass and colored rocks when harvesting.

The collections seem to be removed. So please add back those collections,
or update the loot table so it’s not giving a now wasted rare when harvesting.

Feel like I’m wasting my energy with a lot of the recent bugs and things
collected not being available or doing nothing.

Also it only counts the holiday bot for a quest. Rewards do not match the
difficulty of the task, since you need to use cutting pliers to cut the box open
and snowballs are a lot harder to get than pipes. I’m guessing it used to be
normal bots. Please increase rewards or give some snowballs and cutting pliers,
to re-balance what was balanced before.

Thanks. Have a Happy New Year!

edit: changed ‘clippers’ vernacular to cutting pliers.

Purchased the 6k metal mound.
Placed it.
Started to clear it. 5 energy in i notice i’m getting no resources.
I click stop for the worker. Game freezes.

Reload. I’m down 15 energy, have no mound and 5k coins are gone (not 6).

Purchase again.
Place mound.
Clear one time to test and it does nothing again other than the animations.

Reload. Mound and Cash and 1 energy to test the mound is gone.

End Result: -11k coins, used 16 energy, and gained a lot of frustration. Not to mention no metal to gather.
Help?

Topic: Nightbanes / Bug Reports

Filed a Kong bug report and one on the german site.

Memory Leak. It’s been here a while. Still not fixed.

There are hacks and cheats and you really don’t seem to care.

Most obvious is playing a pile of uniques. They played three
Plague Harbinger as their next turn. That was in addition to the
one on the table there. Yeah they were playing 3 cards a turn too.

Fix the bugs, get rid of the hacks, if you want this thing to continue.
Going to Crosspost this to the steam forum now. I imagine if it’s happening
here, it’s got to be happening there even more often.

Who is going to pay when you can just download a hack instead?

Like the other person level 114 and 115 often give errors
and i never got a 115 chest the first time.

This is the most common error:

After a few times of completing the stage it’ll let me go forward.
Annoying though, as the timers keep their use but 114 and 115
often reset when completed, rather than letting you go forward.

For Hardacker you would need to know if it was the same person,
different people, and more details about the user and interactivity.

Not having logs makes it anecdotal. This also make it not research
nor a proof, and you cannot call it such. Saying you have a cure
for cancer and showing the research and proof you do are different
things.

Lastly Not only is the sample set tiny, but it’s also only a single room experience.

While I appreciate your efforts, your statistical analysis and
research methods need a lot of work. I would never accept this
kind of work from my students.

At this point I’d say ditch the lake contracts.

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 / 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.

Bug:

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.
