Topic: City of Steam: Arkadia / Mechanist Official Bug Reports - 2013 Dec

If you navigate onto Mechanist Games kong account and then hit the link to their site you’ll see that their site has been hit and defaced by some hacker called himself “Ares”. This guys presumably hit the servers as well since the game can be accessed direct from Mechanists site when its up and working.

Depending on how bad the inflicted damage is it could be a while before regular service is restored so probably best to just check back tomorrow.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Starpires] Feedback appreciated

Using a heavy troop attack backed up with the researched adrenaline booster tech reliably savages pirates for me. I appreciate its easier for me to field the troops and research the boost than most but the core strategy is sound. I would warn you however that the planet setup needed to support this strategy makes you an attractive target to the sharks out there, and no matter how big you get theres always a bigger fish waves from protection >_>

I would actually appreciate a faster discovery rate for pirates, or even a research to “locate” a pirate faction to engage, NPC combat could do with being more attractive and easily accessable since as discussed above theres some major multi’ing issues going around that render pvp as much as a game of luck as anything, will your target take the hit and carry on, or will his 17 alts get their nuke on at you, I personally view nukes as a needless addition to the game, they’re a griefers dream and little else. Chems are fine, you can hit a target with a couple waves of them in conjunction with spec ops missions prior to a conventional attack to soften the target somewhat and boost your chances, but nukes offer no strategic value, they are purely a tool for griefers and bullies.

Buuuuuuut since them being removed from the game is highly unlikely, some additional restrictions on the usage of them would curb most of the issues relating to their usage. Having a limit to how many times a player can be nuked per day would likely be the best bet, 1-3 nukehits a day doesnt leave much of a mark even if the strikes are pretty substantial, but I’ve seen guys in the chat commenting on being hit 10 times in an hour as “payback”, and depending on the size of the strikes thats something that will really set someone back, particularly in the early to midgame before they find their feet. Very much a turnoff for any player who’s trying to get into the game I assure you.

Topic: Wartune / Level 50 troops

Some of the top players have daily daru income of up to 5m a day, so for them its almost a moot point since they’ll easily have enough. For players lower down the order though you do have a valid point, although its worth noting that the chinese version is 4 major patches ahead of us (read 4 months minimum for us to catch up) and still lacking L60 troops, so depending on the stats of the L50 troops you may well find yourself grossly underpowered in yet another area.

All of a VIP 9’s 120 alc tries a day comes to I think 23,000 balens daily, and well if you have that kind of cash to throw around on a daily basis then well done you.

Topic: Wartune / Astral System

Like all random chance things, some people seem to be indescribably lucky with it, and some the complete opposite. I’ve put in perhaps only 30M into astrals, and recieved an orange of every type now except Goddess Blessing, including a couple multiples. As KE and indeed many others will tell you, thats pretty insane luck. On the flipside I have guildmates who pull an orange once every 6 or even 8k starpoints, which is brutally unlucky. Theres also the people who pull aegis major 3 times in a row or somesuch, which is sort of good luck gone bad.

Random chance for you, you can love it, hate it, rage at it. Its still gonna give whatever the hell it wants so just keep feeding it gold and hope for the best.

VIP comes with devotion bonuses, and through these you can get over 100.

Topic: Wartune / Pls bring back afk mode for catacombs

Spirit covenant has free blitz, they therefore want you to spend balens on that rather than AFK it. AFK mode will now certainly never return ever. So basicly blitz for gold or blitz for free depending on your monetary situation.

Its a harsh business strategy, since as previously discussed most people wont rush to buy covenant and are gimped by this. But the above statement of mine is pretty much whats going to happen whether you wish it to or not.

Topic: Wartune / Mages and mps

You can run Lair with 4 archers pretty reliably, dragon wont get his firebreath off before death if you keep him slowed all fight. The people who cry about the healer letting them down are almost invariably those lacking any ability to think creatively. Archers can inflict slow, poison, Pdef debuffs, and dispel positive buffs, and yet most archers just spam arrow strike and multishot every fight, occasionally firing sniper off when they have the rage for it.

A tactical archer can really swing a fight. People need to stop thinking that only mage can help the party, sure only mage can group heal, but if somethings hitting for you for 6k and up every turn you really think slowing the damn thing down wont help you out? You think poisoning it wont make it die faster, or breaking its def even slightly? Archer can offer so much more than just heavy dps and so many people are ignorant to that.

I’m sure a knight could wander in now and explain all the things they can do to help a team, like the skill that boosts everyones def by 20% or whatever it is.

Point is, dont start blaming the mage everytime something goes wrong, sure if they’re on a dps build in a boss that inflicts heavy bleed then fair enough, but if they have the heals flying out maybe look inward to what you yourself are doing wrong, would that boss have finished off the team before you killed it if it’d been slowed? Would a poison effect have amounted for that little sliver of hp it had left when it killed you? Would that aoe have taken out 3 members of the team if the knight had got that def skill up?

The runspeed increase of 30% is effective in any situation you find yourself mobile.

The speed increase rises to 40% at stable level 3 I believe.

Topic: Wartune / World Boss battle and Batlegrounds

Certainly not needed for worldboss. The entire playerbase plugging away at it keeps it relatively balanced, sure the uberheavies walk away richest but the other 600 people beating on it prevent the wb from staying alive long enough for them to obtain a genuinely gamebreaking amount of gold and daru. I’ve walked away from a WB with 1.5M damage rewards, and then 150k extra for coming 3rd. But if there hadnt been 400 people hitting it for only perhaps 400k damage each, I’d have walked away with twice that or more. Do you really want people who are already ahead of the curve as it were being able to get so far ahead you wont see us for the dust? I think not.

As for battlegrounds I think its pretty much established at this point that its basicly an hour long session of innumerable deaths for the majority of the 40+ crowd. It will be fixed eventually but when who knows. As a tip, all the very strong people pile into the early battlegrounds the majority of the time. Jump in 5 minutes after its started and you’ll generally find yourself facing less OP players. Not a solid rule obviously since a top player could login late or whatever, but reasonably frequently you’ll be able to run with a reduced chance of brutal round 1 death.

I very very much doubt it.

Its at 5am for me on the server I play on (S1) and its an asspain to get to, but I still sneak on every now and then and grab some honour. Maybe consider joining a server that has it at a more favourable time for you?

Topic: Wartune / VIP Wheel is rigged

Well, given I’ve pulled an L7 from the shop (possibly the only one in S1?) it is possible to get this stuff, but the odds are extremely long. Given that only a relatively small percentage of the playerbase is VIP to begin with and 4 full 8 try spins of the wheel a week is about the best you can hope for, it isnt “that” surprising that people never seem to pull them. I’ve seen wheels in other games with long long odds, but because so long as you had the cash you could keep spinning it, people seemed to win quite frequently, its only when you stepped back and looked at the costs involved in spinning it so much that you realised just how long the odds really were.

Yes it does seem like a bit of a scam, but then when has gambling ever been fair? Theres a reason the house always wins you know

Topic: Wartune / Guild Battle: camping inside opponent spawn zone

My guild (Wolfpack) enforces an inhouse rule that we do not spawncamp since we believe its very poor form, and we kick members who disobey from the GW as punishment. We tend to go to level with the wardtower and thats as far as we go, if the weaker guild doesnt wish to fight they just stay behind their ward. This is a move often appreciated by the guilds we face early in the week, particularly those fought on Mondays.

If ForceHonor, Legend, ZionSparta and Chaos could also agree to do this (I list these guilds because they are those with the highest steamrolling capability) then this would alleviate much of this problem, since lower down the rankings there is less disparity between the relative strength of the guilds and most can hold their own against each other.

This may well be wishful thinking on my part but I know from experience that being relentlessly beat on is not at all enjoyable and it will ultimately result in people quitting because they feel its futile to continue. This is a game after all, its meant to be fun, and the online equivilent of being pinned down and punched repeatedly in the face is not at all fun, this is ultimately not that big an ask of the higher guilds, its simply a request to demonstrate some respect to the guilds of lesser strength.

Topic: Wartune / Our relative position patchwise?

So I was wondering, since some servers already have Talents and the Covenant active, where do we stand relatively when it comes to patch progression, and quite possibly what can we expect after the next installment of the 1.46 patch? I believe KE knows such mystic secrets, care to share? ^^
