Topic: League of Angels / Not getting my diamonds sometimes


Updated***
I have had the one of the times corrected now it appears. So obviously R2 is working successfully to resolve the issues. A special thanks to R2 , who has been good about fixing stuff for me in a couple of games now. The solid customer support is appreciated


I have had twice in the last week where I have purchased diamonds with kreds and it has taken the kreds but not given me the diamonds.

Are others experiencing issues with their purchases as well?

Topic: League of Angels / Broken Hot Events on server 4!!!

No GM on to make aware or ask for help with the ticket system so I figure this forum here is the next best communication point available. Hope they see it

Topic: League of Angels / Broken Hot Events on server 4!!!

I tried to submit a ticket at the r2 site from the server select page ‘click here’ link for issues…but it kept giving me a fail message ‘user create fail’ making it unclear to me if the tickets went through properly

Topic: League of Angels / Broken Hot Events on server 4!!!

Before 23:00 server time hot events broke and shows up as blank. Everyone is saying its broke for them as well in world chat…this is leading to a lot of unclaimable rewards, especially the 600 dev awards for people

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Wasteland Empires] Help with Gold Digger

Sadly I have already tried eliminating all my refineries. Since it was listed 1/1 , I thought perhaps I would have to lose all refineries to build it and then rebuild the others with the higher item max. So I recycled all my refineries…all back to nothing…and still it said 1/1 for the Gold digger. I do not see one any where and do not believe I ever built one…this is really weird.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Wasteland Empires] Help with Gold Digger

Anyone know why I can not build my first gold digger. Once I upgrades my town center to a tier 5 courthouse, it was in my build list. I do not have one yet and it says 1/1 though, so the build button is grayed out and I can not build…any ideas?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Wasteland Empires] Bugs Bugs Bugs

I am still having some issues but some are working much better today. The buttons up top work again for me, I have a new raider in my territory and the old one that was broken disappeared.

I am still having issues with no friends except neighbors showing in the radio tower. My not playing list and playing list friends are empty. Also when I click the messages button and click to give a gift to a friend, I select the gift but when my friends list comes up for who to give it to that is empty as well. So currently I can only give gifts to neighbors with something showing in their wishlist.

Thanks for the tip on finding undestroyed buildings. I had actually done that as well as tried heavy gunner groups drug everywhere to see if they would hit anything I was missing. The win loss bar never had any numbers on it and always I always left with a draw after not finding anything to destroy, which leads me to believe that there truly was nothing there to destroy (Otherwise I would have been defeated and lost renown) Anyways the game seemed to hiccup and is back to making sense with a new npc to attack and the old one gone…so all is well there now.

Anyways thanks for the quick response and for looking in to it. It is appreciated. :D

Hmm first, my friends do not show in the radio tower to invite to neighbors. Next, my territory has a tribe with nothing left to destroy there. I can not get rid of it. If I try to battle there it ends in a draw every time. I have been over the map time and time again and there is no way to get rid of it so it seems. Finally, now my top buttons to get messages, leaderboards,etc do not work anymore except for the help and forum ones. ….buggy much?

Topic: Miscrits / My Super-Duper Suggestions!

Not really wild about the idea of trading. Every time some high level quit he would be nice and trade his crits to some new player. Having newbies become elitist noobs because of this would probably annoy me.

Would love to see the arena matching get an improvement session. Your ideas for a no rewards arena where we can just battle for fun would be awesome.

I am intrigued about your lucky charm idea. Would rather see it as plat or new rank trait or something so that it was something that could be earned in game, but am not opposed to it being kred as well as long as it could be done either way.

Topic: Miscrits / developers only please

Translated :

Topic “Developers only Please” = " I want to spout off some riduculous stuff complaining to the devs, and I double dog dare anyone in the gaming community here to disagree with me in my little rant area"

Points 1, 2 and 3 =“Hand us all the cool stuff in the game so easily we all get bored in a day or two and the game communtiy dies but I am happy cuz i just want my stuff”

Point 4 = “And how dare the developers give me a good free game to play but expect that if I like it and want to keep playing for extra cool stuff that I let them actually make a living from it” After all they should just give and give to me because I want it. I mean, I would totally do that with what I do for a living…I could be super poor and not be able to make ends meet but it’d be worth it just to give everything to others free"

Topic: Miscrits / The Mansion is coming!

First off, thanks for the update. I appreciate knowing what is coming and hopefully this will get some okay crits into more players hands so they can have a fun challenge in arenas.

Like Eloozion and Cindrax I have completed a large portion of the current content. It is certainly not the devs fault that we blew through the content so quickly, and I do not want to seem down on a game I have had a blast playing. That being said some feedback…

I think the point being made above is that some of us higher rank players, especially those over rank 200 feel as if we are running out of stuff to explore. This is somewhat natural as we will all get to that point in the game no matter how much content is released with how fast some of us are crunching it. It would have been nice as an over 200 rank to get an area like shack, aerobia, or Volcano (or something else)to keep it fresh. I am ,however, glad they are still putting more of the game out there in general for everyone.

So for you low levels out there have fun with the new update. For us higher ranks out there we just got our hopes up something was coming that we had yet to exlpore. Because of us letting ourselves get our hopes high have kinda came crashing down a little here. Hopefully more is coming soon for all levels in the future. ’til then a lot of us hardcore grinders will probably be popping in less and less and checking out other games to keep us satisfied until there is new stuff for us too. I have enjoyed the friendly higher level players that I have met here and hope they are all patient enough and checking back so we can keep them around. as for me I will certainly be playing some still, checking back regularly, and wishing for new content everytime I go to that wishing well.

Topic: Miscrits / Scarecrow charix level 30 skill is leaf blower?!!

So I looked at miscrit info online in forums at miscrits.com before spinning and spinning to get Scarecrow Charix. I extra point trained him up. It was all looking great until level 30…when I hit 30 what did I get as a 30 skill….Leaf blower!!! The forums had his 30 skill listed as scarecrow carnage. I wonder if this is an error because, without Carnage his top ATK is a 15 strength EA attack (Reap)…this seems weak for attack at level 30. I could not find any mention on the forums about him ever getting a changed skill so I think it maybe is just an error that will get changed. Don’t get me wrong leaf blower is a nice skill with the enchant to heal, but seriously it seems an elite ea crit would normally have an ea attack skill stronger than reap is.

I heard from others that regular Charix still has its carnage at level 30, so I wonder if this may be a bug. I submitted a bug report just in case it was.

If it is not a bug, and is this way by design, perhaps a dev could please let us know. This way we can know if changes are coming or not when assessing its strategy and if we are going to want to use it in our teams in the future.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.

Please bear with me. I actually enjoy trying to figure out these kind of issues. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but I am sometimes an odd duck. This is all conjecture based on what I see happening in only limited tests and I am sure the coders will be able to look at this in much more thorough fashion. There is quite possibly more cases involved than what I have below but in the interest of fun looking into the possible puzzle…Obviously I am likely missing at least one part of the puzzle as its been noted above that there are people reporting plat loss on multiple trainings of a single crit somehow that this would not entirely explain.

It really appeared to me at first that the behavior was from there being a separate storage place for the value displayed and the actual plat value. The displayed value is stored perhaps in a variable for our case lets say (A) and the actual value is held perhaps in a database or a separate variable (B). It appears the code reloads/refreshes/verifies A by checking B when it refreshes/battles/perhaps some other cases. This is probably because code was written to not have to hit a larger scope variable or hit a database constantly for the display thus slowing performance.

.

Perhaps when the code was updated to reduce the cost of training purchase, it was changed so that it subtracted 1 from the B variable/DBase instead of subtracting 3. However the change also needed to be made to the code that modified the display amount A, otherwise it would display incorrectly until it did the battle/refresh/other case that made it reload/verify A again by checking B. It appears possible that this second location of code was not changed and still was subtracting 3 from A. Thus making the display variable off by 2 until it did its verification/reload process.

.

If this was true, during these cases B (the true plat amount) would always be correct, however A would get off by 2 per training until it was overwritten/corrected by the code that is checking/reloading it from B. This seems to be exactly the behavior I have seen during any test I have done. Of course this is all just conjecture based on the program behavior, but would be a common issue to run into during programming when dealing with multiple storage locations of a value for whatever purpose.

.

Heh , I am probably wrong or missing something there, but that is my lil’ theory anyway. I will let the more qualified actually actually address the issue for us. Anyways keep the information coming if you witness this please so I can continue my little conjecture game and the devs get as much info as possible on what we are seeing so they can fix it fully.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.

Hmm that is strange Titirica. I actually tested in a double-training on a single crit without a refresh or battle in between. The numbers were as follows. wonder what the difference in our usage was.

1. Start 466 plat
2. Training cost (Plat purchased leveling) -11 plat / new displayed total 455 / what total should be 455
3. purchase extra point -1 plat / new displayed total 452/ what total should be 454
4. purchased another training level -11 plat/ new displayed total 441/ what total should be 443
5. purchased extra point -1 plat/ new displayed total 438/ what total should be 442

(So far I have leveled twice no refresh or battle in between and I display I am 4 plat off. This is 2 plat off for each training)

6.Battle! starting displayed plat before battle 438/ after the battle 442

So in this case it appears the total 4 plat was reimbursed.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.

Its not actually taking the plat permanently so no plat should have to be reimbursed to anyone. Upon reviewing the problem a few of us users found it says it takes 3 plat at first but it does correct after a battle. So it really just ends up being a temporary bug in the display of how much plat it took. So really its just a matter of fixing the display to avoid questions and confusion over it. The fact that no extra plat is truly consumed should make it easier on fixing the issues because it only requires the fix and should not entail any refunds of plat.

Hope this helps you as you look into the fix. :D

Thanks for your monitoring of the boards and quick attention to our issues.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.

Okay I tested both the scenarios above. In each case I tried it displayed the improper amounts until a battle, after which the display was corrected to the proper amount as it should have been. Seems in my tests anyways that this is merely a display bug and does not truly affect our spent plat amounts in the long run.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.

Another user pointed out that after a battle they got 2 of the 3 plat back…I tried and indeed I did as well. This looks promising however there are still some unknowns.

I have not tried with multiple trainings on crits between battles though. for example buying levels with plat and extra trains each time with no battle between, 2nd example not known extra training multiple crits before going to battle again. I will try to test shortly.

I also used the bug report Kong feature to submit this as a bug and included screenshots to assist in finding the issue. I hope it is of help.

Topic: Miscrits / Taking 3 plat not 1 for training. temporarily then corrects.


See Below*** Problem appears to be a temporary display bug only as far as I can tell after seeing further occurrences.* It appears that after a battle the correct plat amount is shown again*

The update states extra trainings should be 1 plat now and indeed it lists as that in the training screen but it is showing that it takes 3 plat from us when we do it.

I have leveled and used this a bunch thinking it was only costing me 1 plat before Famine pointed it out to me. So I tested when my Chickasaw leveled and sure enough my plat dropped from 470 to 467.

Awesome! Thanks for the reply. I have been impressed by your presence on the board and quick replies to questions here. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing what you have in store in the future for us.

Topic: Miscrits / More content for Kongregate???

I really have enjoyed this game so far and have plunked some kreds into it.

I would love to see some of the fb content avail here at Kongregate as well. I can not get into the shack (ports me to beginning miscrit forest), cannot go to Volcano Island, and can not buy a lot of the miscrits in shop, such as the Holiday ones.

Is any of this type of content coming our way here at Kongregate for purchase? I prefer playing games here rather than fb, so this is where I spend my online gaming currency.

Topic: Crystal Saga / VIP Renewal on Kongregate

I am curious how VIP renewal works on Kongregate. It seems from looking at R2 forums that elsewhere it autorenews on Paypal/credit and they have to send a support ticket if they want to cancel. With Kongregate’s Kred Transaction System they are usually not a renewing system and I do not remember seeing anything about recurring charge on my Kong checkout. So…
1. Will it try to auto renew with Kreds?…or…Do I need to rebuy before to extend?…or…Am I supposed to wait until it expires to repurchase for a new month?
2. If its Auto renew/recurring what is our path if we should choose to cancel? Do I get reminders close to time to ensure I have Kreds in Acct.? etc…
3. If we buy before to extend, does it extend a certain amount of days after our current sub or just from the day we bought it?
