Topic: Card Monsters / DA (Dragon Apocalypse) Auto Win Setups

I was using musc/master healer(any healing will work but, the more the better) left, mush/LG center(center needs aggression for kuks), kick axe/ballista… the kuks can get a lucky backstab on kick axe sometimes… it’s just enough to clear wave 5 hydra but you need to keep some disease handy to kill the wave 6 and 7 hydras, so no auto past wave 5 with this one.
But now I use the same except hydra/commander in middle and can auto victory it with a decent %
As for setting up I keep some random low cc monsters that have enough hp to last 2 rounds to enable enough time to sac and build up cc. The kick axe helps with setup too with the 30 anti-magic, just don’t put her out too early. Keeping sorrow in the deck can help too.

Topic: Card Monsters / - When is new exp come?

Saba has already admitted to downloading the source code and finding a way to exploit the game…
Why are you still denying it?
Just because I don’t know exactly what you all are doing, you are still cheating and I am mad because you are ruining the game I have spent money on and played for over a year.
Nothing to do with skills, we didn’t lose but by 1% and 2 non-active players that usually get 100%.
Cheating is the only pathetic thing here.

Topic: Card Monsters / - When is new exp come?

nice find! and it’s a blizzard game, one of the best IMO
BTW replace “es” with “en” for the English version

I also had another thought on why we are getting ignored by edge… he made a very greedy mistake, which ended up losing him future money… max light with no cap. The people with high enough max light have no reason to buy tokens since coins come easy. I believe this has made him not care about this game since it is no longer a massive greedy money maker.

I would rather see the max light get capped at 400 or so if he would work on this game more. Give me back the difference in coins, idc. But letting the game fall to pieces… why? It’s beta, it’s not like he can’t change it now.

The gaming community learns fast… and only the younger (too young to buy tokens) crowd that doesn’t know how they screwed us will ever play an edgebee game again.

And losing 1st place to an alliance where half (if not all) the members are using bots really puts the final blow to my frustration… they are the most active because they don’t have to actually do the boring grind and can just pop on and buy things without working for it. It’s very blatant too as you can see in kongs high scores max wins. Edge has been aware of it for months now and does nothing about it! They have never even been asked to stop or confronted at all… which is further proof that edge is going to let this game die.
Don’t spend a dime on this game, run a bot instead… they won’t do anything to stop you.

Mark my words, edge will do very little to nothing with this game to fix any of the problems since it’s not a good source of income anymore. CM2 beta beta will probably come out before anything is fixed here.

So we go from “soon” to little to no work on CM!
Just because someone leaked some info and he got mad is more like the truth.
So we ALL get punished for that!? What BS!
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
and stop feeding us lies!
This game could never be tweaked daily, but S&P2 can!? We all have been told time and time again that we have to suffer with all the bugs until the next update.
Maybe he should put that game on hold and fix this one… but nope… it’s so obvious that he doesn’t care about this game. There is no need for all the lame excuses.
And I mean no offense to you, Lama, I realize you are doing all you can for us. No amount of money would make me want to have your job. It must suck to be stuck in the middle of this mess.

Topic: Card Monsters / - When is new exp come?

They just don’t care about the game anymore.
I think edge is over his head and will drop the game soon, especially since players are quitting faster than they get more noobs.
I can’t keep an alliance together anymore either and it’s simply not worth the effort right now… this game is supposed to be fun, not frustrating.
I’ve been here since the start and the game has gone downhill the whole time.
They screwed up PvP, duels, and AA rankings to the point that they are not even fun.
They do nothing to fix these problems or control the obvious botting. (which directly costs them money)
And now they don’t give us any new content or even tell us what the hell is going on.
They let the expansion cards be purchased, but non payers have no access to them for weeks and weeks.
I’m not sure you could screw up the game any worse if you were actually trying to on purpose.
All these problems lead to people not wanting to spend a dime on this game… and that will lead to no more expansions and the death of the game.
I think I might just change my deck to 1 gerbip and quit too… I just can’t see a future for this game anymore.

Topic: Card Monsters / Exp #5 card names

Keep the level 1 names short or easily abbreviated.
I’m having a hard time converting now with a few like squire F to knight-ingale.
It’s just laziness, but we all do it to try to chat easier.
I don’t think the longer names will ever take except to new players and will add some confusion now.

Topic: Card Monsters / New equipments and monsters

I agree.
They should have left them in there if they wanted to make more money, but this may be what you are saying they have done?
Rumor has it that they are no longer in there, but I’m not so sure what/who to trust anymore.
Has anyone gotten one after the announcement? The heroic cards are showing up in the shop which is not supposed to happen yet either (not a big deal, but it makes me wonder if the new ones are still in elite).

But simply having some players in the top alliances with 1 or 2 of these new OP cards (that look to me like they will start nerf thread frenzies or will be changed before official release) make it very unfair.

Why not just release them all now… we know they will likely change, but at least it would be even. They would end up with 1000’s of testers and only have to change the cards once instead of also later like they have done with so many others. The last time they accidentally released an expansion early, they just kept it out there instead of pulling it… why is this different?(more reason to think the cards will be changed a lot?)

They could also temporarily 0 out all the new cards stats or raise the cc to an unplayable level to prevent players from having an unfair advantage.
Something should be done… letting these players have such a big advantage for weeks is BS!

Topic: Card Monsters / Single player instant victories

I’m finding this hard to believe… someone so active in chat and such didn’t know the surrender trick?
That little pause sometimes after you play your last card is the computer figuring out the rest of the match… the outcome won’t change after this no matter what you do, including surrender.
It works everywhere but live play because of obvious reasons, but it may even work in live if BOTH players have played their last card (not confirmed).

Good point Weshu. We need to stop buying the lies they feed us.
Just make it cost tokens to sac a card after playing them all.
It would be done tomorrow. ;)

Topic: Card Monsters / live epic card only?? 5/4

So how long have they known?
It is a very old bug.
All day I have heard people complaining about this.
It can’t be too elaborate if so many people are doing it.

Fix it or stop having the stupid events that nobody likes anyway!
Letting half the players continue to cheat while not telling others is not fair either… If it’s elaborate then it should be easily fixed!
This is one of things that are really starting to annoy me about edge… if it doesn’t involve tokens, the bugs don’t get fixed.
But if it does, they are fixed the next day.

When it becomes obvious like this that a dev doesn’t care about the players, but only his own pockets …people stop spending money on the game. I have and I’m not the only one. I would buy that sorrow in the shop right now for 3k tokens, but I won’t because all I see for the future of this game are more bugs that never get fixed and a crappy PvP system trying to squeeze more money out of the players!
Edge is also going to lose more and more players by not having a good PvP set-up like unranked was… at this point I wouldn’t be surprised if they randomly disable the in game chat to try and force players to buy tickets. PvP is the only fun/challenging part of the game… losing that loses players and lack of players means nobody will want to buy tokens anyway. IMO the free unranked makes people want to spend more to beat the other players… the AI is so bad, there is no incentive there to spend tokens to improve your deck.

Topic: Card Monsters / Game Making You Auto Surrender too Quickly

16 cards would equal 16 turns of nothing but waiting for timers to count down… F that!
My 6 year old computer works just fine, I have never been timed out twice.
I have to agree with frozen here… if it’s on your end, then it’s your fault… you can’t expect people to make games for outdated computers or software. Firefox users can disable the web page restore feature… which helps speed things up (“http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session” -under privacy in table of contents)
Waiting for server timeouts are a different story though and are completely either edge’s or kong’s fault.

I could have sworn that if you make any play (sac a card), it will not count as a timed out round towards an auto-loss??
We need more time to do calculations now and the timer should be more like 45 sec, which would really make “no auto-losses” bad.

JasonJ29- “Why would you prefer getting a loss that you don’t deserve that also wastes the other person’s ticket by cheating them out of a fight?”… this coming from a guy who auto surrenders to big scores all the time in live! …but now you suddenly care about cheating someone out of a fight when it suits your argument?! lol

Topic: Card Monsters / Look at the home

There is a forum at edgebee for the game as well that is much easier to navigate and find answers to FAQs.
It would also be not as bad if you posted as much there because of the same reasons, but this kong forum is much too small and not categorized enough to handle the amount of posts you make.
And unfortunately this is not only an opinion of a few, but many here on kong.
Sorry, but you are starting to coin a phrase, “bombing the forum”.

Topic: Card Monsters / Community's Wishlist

I think something similar is in place already… something like inactive leaders get demoted after 30 days or something.
Having to pay tokens to create an alliance to have it disbanded while you are on vacation doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.
How about if an alliance fails to score (all 0%), then it loses 10 positions. Then have a larger # of days (30-60) of inactivity that will disband the alliance.
I also think they clean up old alliances once in a while (overdue)… it always has been an issue and that’s probably why it costs tokens now to start one.

Topic: Card Monsters / Is Explosion Supposed to Prevent Deathstrike and Cleave?

I have always considered cleave and deathstrike as the same hit as the melee attack, but with added “power”. Why else would it be dependent on the melee hit?
They should not be separate attacks IMO. Explode should not stop it, but also deathstrike should not apply after revive activates.
They are being treated like counter which is clearly a second attack and should activate after, but not cleave and deathstrike.

Topic: Card Monsters / Silence.

Hao could easily add a simple courage pendant to his deck and have exactly what I described… I recently played him in live and he could very easily setup double sadi and MC… 3cc courage pendant is not an unrealistic addition for a chance at near invincibility.
But let’s not start useless scenario arguing… agreeing or disagreeing with the main point and explaining why, is more useful.

Topic: Card Monsters / Silence.

I would like to change my view on this after playing against more and more double sadi’s and DM/robes in live… it’s apparent that this card is not unbalancing the game, but restoring balance.
magic is OP therefore silence is not.
how else to counter 2 DM5s with robes (8cc total for 140 magic)?… reflect doesn’t always work and you aren’t going to win having reflect equips for all your creatures anyway… wall, phoenix shield won’t save you… kill them faster?, you’d be hard pressed to catch up to that much damage for such low cc.
just because not many use magic doesn’t mean it’s any less powerful.
act of silence is 1 card and it only affects creatures already on the field.
magic was already making a comeback and this card will help slow that which is good.
the game sucked when blue/magic was king except for the few who had archmage… and the reason they liked it was because they were few!
I think it’s good the way it is now… magic will be sporadic as opposed to in every deck… and since less than 50% of the people will use a significant amount of magic, not many will use act of silence either (balanced).
double sadi is getting popular now and silence can be one of the few things to save you from it… MC/LH, sadi/courage, sadi/robe… good luck without silence.
It is a very situational card since not many live decks run a lot of magic or healing, it’s not worth the slot for most people.
I don’t think it should be nerfed beyond making it unique if at all… there is no real good reason to have more than 1 anyway.

Topic: Card Monsters / Channelling crown NERF

You guys can spout off scenarios all day long… although I kind of find it funny that the crown always has to be on RD or BD and always has to be round 1 going first to be a good card at all. You can start with a low cc tank and a side guy with crown(i.e. cala,boocan/crown… don’t bother picking it apart, there are plenty more suitable low cc monsters… use your nomad tank if you want)

10 armor on 90% of all abilities = OP
That’s the bottom line!
The exceptions should be revive, counter, and such things that require an armor damaging hit to activate or where armor actually hinders the ability.
If resonate is that bad of an ability that it needs 10 armor to make it good, then change the ability… putting 10 armor on cards with good abilities will make us cry OP every time.

Topic: Card Monsters / Two new abilities involving healing.

I like them both, but I have a few tweaks to suggest… maybe change to bolster 10, bolster 20, etc. instead of a%.
And maybe make energize affect something other than melee… like a 50% chance to avoid the next attack

Topic: Card Monsters / Idea on attracting more people playing live play

Alliances will no longer want to “grow” players and the top 1-2 alliances will become what the grim reapers were after the merge in the epic seekers of power war… full of the best live players. All the other alliances will get frustrated and not bother to participate at all.
If you play at the right time of day, dragon live is booming and you can run through all 10 tickets in less than a hour.
There are so many decks between 3700 and 6000 that don’t play live because they don’t want to downgrade for master and just get slaughtered in dragon… creating another league will do much more to increase overall live play IMO.
and to add another point of view… us top live players actually want to play all 10 of our tickets… with auto-surrenders becoming more and more frequent from lower strength decks, I don’t want those decks in dragon anymore than they want to come across me.

Topic: Card Monsters / stronger AI

I would have to argue that this AI just puts out random cards too.
…and beyond that it has mechanics flaws like sacing the last monster (I’ve seen it tons of times) which shouldn’t even be possible!
I’ve even had a match where the AI went defenseless 3 times in a row losing it’s last 3 cards… the last round he had 12 crystals and defenseless took his last card, MC… this makes it even worse than war metal tyrant! If these things are really programmed in, then WTF?!

The whole argument of it’s too hard is BS anyway… look at edgebee’s games, do you think they are the work of unskilled programmer?
I can understand this is a small operation and it may be time consuming, but we pay them enough money to hire another programmer.
It would bring in more money and be well worth it IMO… a smarter AI would make quests and everything more challenging and therefore more fun and less grindy feeling. People would stick around longer… the longer they stick around, the more chance of spending money… the more money they spend, the longer they will stick around.
