HONESTLY THIS IS NOT THE FIRST OF APRIL

true. so much good food (and time) wasted in the process, to receive such a noob crap. I knew this game was just a money drain, but still..

yup, the update started. 2PM PST equals 23:00 GMT+1 (EU central time), nothing is mixed up. Just the 9 hrs difference.
I just wish it was announced (the exact time of the update). And the voting ingame removed, at the time it should have been removed (without causing so much confusion in room chat).
Nevermind.

I’ve read all of the info about it. On Kong, FB, forums. So, nothing is specified. (And somebody can think they have postponed it, since I could “vote” even now, half a day after the polls should be closed). If that was the case in RL :))
Whenever they do it…priceless.
I’m quite relaxed :) thanks though.

Why is the voting system still on?

“This is the final exit poll before voting ends tonight (11/12) at 11:59p PST. "

Over here is 11/13 16:51 GMT+1, I believe it is 07:51 PST now. And the voting is still on?
As far as I know, there is no specified time of the results, no specified time of an update, even though the event will be held in a limited amount of time (13-15/11).
So, in case players don’t want to miss part of the event..are we supposed to stare at the screen and wait? Why wasn’t the exact time of results, and updates, announced?

I can’t help but notice how this update could have been managed in a “little” more professional manner.

(note to myself: next time spend the money on a quality boxed game, like Dishonored).

All of t6 sets are already finished. You could see all of them if you had tier 5 built (though, you can’t build t6 until you upgrade to tier 6).
6 animal-looking costumes are: crow (wizard), monkey (adventurer), zebra (cleric), rhino (knight), lion (berserker), and fox (archer).
Maybe it isn’t what you wished for (take your number), but at least you get a picture how it looks like.

remove brooms, goggles, and similar c**p from the chests in GD. At least replace them with useful potions like softie or shock ie. After 25+ GD remove potions and add something that really suits the floor. Like t2-t3 refined/plain, or stuff like that. Those items may be lesser than a player is using, but they’ll speed up the process to t5 or t6 a bit. Plus, GD will finally have a replay value. Having t6 sets now which are better than rogue/sardaukar/zweihander, means you could also implement some sets for other classes (archer/cleric/mage) which would greatly increase visits to GD. Range from t5, t5,5 or t6..your choice.
Plus, one small thing. Real shame shadower ie (t5) got so speed nerfed. There was no heavy reason to do that, people would get to t6 sooner or later, forcing them to do it by nerfing older tiers is not really an ethical way to do it.

make wooden keys a rare drop, 1/2 the chance of a diamond. It will be a good market strategy that both people who pay and support this game, and those who play for free, advertize, and contribute with ideas and suggestions. I believe such things raise the number of dedicated players, and future support of this game.

Also, please make those boxes stop dropping, after a player accumulates certain amount. I am going towards 400+/100+ boxes, and seeing them drop over and over, won’t make me buy them more, in fact the effect will be exactly the opposite.

I’ve also read idea about a custom tab to organize potions for combat, which I think is a great idea.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Food update

i could easily burn through 20k of metal in food costs with 1 single GD run just on the chance i maybe get a good drop before the server boots me

I second this.
Food issue has not been settled correctly. Now it is even worse than before.
I have never ever seen a game where food (having high metal cost, metal that is hard to get) is having such a huge impact on gameplay.
Also, when in town, not having an option to feed all heroes with one click of a mouse in a hero tavern, for free, or really small amount of resources, takes away the charm from the food system. Feeding a hero in combat is one thing, GD can be a long trip, and a lot of food is needed for that, that is already enough.
This is becoming African Grinns tale… and not in a funny way. You won’t raise dedicated playerbase (some of us contributing), in fact this stuff will just make people annoyed.

I have 305 wooden, 78 ornate. And more and more they appear, less I like them.
It’s all too random, for so many pramins (and way too expensive imo)..if I wanted to gamble, I’d play lotto.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Tier 6

…and I changed my mind, looking at adventurer’s looks a little more…in general, my toons will look completely RETARDED, facing scary stuff I didn’t even see yet (haven’t been pass floor 46) c’mon devs, rogue (adventurer) in a monkey costume, equipped with a branch? wtf..that’s not how a tough rogue on floor 51 should look like, having a monkey head half the size of a screen, ffs..having caricature toons was enough, this is simply way beyond retarded.

“It’s really underwhelming and makes me wish I hadn’t wasted so many hours crafting t5 gear.”

I share the same feeling, I don’t want all that long time grinding for t5 was spent for nothing, so I’ll have fun with those sets for a while, later..if nothing much changes..well..it’s been fun.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Tier 6

aside aesthetic which looks sweet, I see the difference in stats is very low. Knight’s rhino spear has even less def now ie.
Considering the cost of making them..I think I’ll just admire the view, and enjoy my (some of) refined t5 sets.

I was expecting some major change in stats, like extra speed, like soldier/savant/shaman set..That REALLY would be a change that would make me manufacture those sets.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Suggestions and bugs

I also think both keys should have some chance to drop (in Grinnfinite ie), although, of course, 2nd should have much smaller chance, and be found above lvl 25. Price for them is simply ridiculous, and after I’ve tried buying them both, I’ve decided that I don’t get the value I pay.
Instead, think of this: offer the 1st key for 2 or 3 pramins. Lover the price of 2nd key, OR:
(this would be MUCH more interesting for players)
Implement direct buying of “pixie dust” on the market. I hate that, even spending the money for the key, I’m not sure if I will get the dust. So, it’s like playing lotto. No way I’ll spend my money doing that.
2nd, pixie dust SHOULD have different purpose, imho. If I want an item to be refined, I can just spam production and end up with a refined item, sooner or later. Paying for a key that will MAYBE spawn me pixie dust that will MAYBE make an item refined, simply doesn’t make it worth my money. BUT.
To implement pixie dust as an item that will MAKE unrefined items refined, or even better, that will ENHANCE the refined items even more, now that, is something I am willing to buy, and support the company (yes I know you guys have to eat, too ;). The Final item made this way should be in range of tier5 items. This way, since there is a huge gap between the t4 and t5, and many players will quit instead of waiting, they have a choice. Either to wait and grind (but spend no money), and get t5..or invest something in their savant/soldier/sneak outfits, and get some more defense (speed they already have). I really hate going upper lvls with armored t5 gear which is slow and crippled, and to give up my refined savant/soldier/sneak sets which are awesome, fast, but simply not durable enough to meet the big damage bashers. I’ve invested too much into those sets, and besides, they’re so much fun than t5.
Think about it, devs (and players). Pixie dust that can make items refined, and enchanted, IS worth 25 or 30 pramins, right? That one one the market..simply doesn’t interest me.
I also have some other suggestions, but they can wait for now, I wrote too much :)
but please think about it, it may be much more useful both for players, and the game developers, IMHO :)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] devs/mods please read-pramin loss

I think someone from mods/devs should check our balance before/after the purchase and establish we couldn’t spent it on anything else, and the issue with losing connection/refreshing/losing pramins. I expect someone from devs/mods to reply to this topic what can be done about it

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] devs/mods please read-pramin loss

(currently I have 1 powered mine planted 3 hours ago, now upgrading to lvl2..there should be 2, second one in the process of building, like 6-7 minutes old…what happened? why does the game charge me pramins, but not updating mines properly after refresh?)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] devs/mods please read-pramin loss

This message should be adressed to devs/admins (no idea how to contact game support)..5 min ago I purchased starter pack 2 after the update, had 88 pramins in the total. I went to buy powered mine (19 pramins), after I have purchased it and planted it on the ground, “refresh” icon from a Grinn popped up, forcing me to refresh. After I refreshed, I’ve noticed my pramin balance was 19 pramins less (69 now), but no powered mine started building :(( Can somebody please check that, I am going not to build things in game anymore, if this stuff will happen frequently. Thanks.

Not a bad thing, many people are leaving Drakensang these days, including me. Must be because devs have very “smart” new ideas for the game.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] PVP question

pvp matchmaking in this game is very very horrible. You will fight players many levels bigger than you, and much better equipped. That, plus only 3 poor little maps…comparing to other mmo, I don’t know why they even call that a “pvp”. Poor experience overall.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Drakensang Online] emote's

There will be events where you can get them, also sometimes from promo codes..I think chance is same for copper, bronze, or those more expensive..but not worth spending andermant on that. You’ll get them in time. Also you can get them in surprise chests, but very small chance (1 in 200) so don’t bother. My advice, wait for events and promo codes, open some copper chests only if you feel like wasting andermant :)
