Since Kong based GO2 isnt a big moneymaker anymore the Admin $$ have obviously gone to another game. Considering the state of delivery of prizes from the back-end lately, I’m betting they gave admin of the Back-End servers to the secretary or janitor.

pssssh…… Janitor…. SOOOOOoooOOOOOO true……….

I just got this really horrible feeling that IGG is going to “fix” our mp problem during the merge process then when a bunch of people don’t get the mp they can just say “we already posted that we are not responsible for losses during the merge.” Really hope i’m just being paranoid

Its ok demon,

As you can see kong wants the developer to do the right thing. But they know devs sometimes try and get away with the wrong thing. Kong will help with it.

ironically I have never had this issue with IGG before… other games on kongregate yes…
So I completely understand!!!
You could spend it but i would document VERY VERY thoroughly where and how it was spent

Hey renegade thanks for the info I appreciate you taking the time to help. I am assuming that based on your number of posts and information about kong support that you are a seasoned player. Do you think it is safe to spend the mp they did pay out? or would it be better to hang onto it till igg gets this resolved? I appreciate your input thanks.


Great question.

I would NOT spend it. If need be and IGG does not resolve the issue upon kongregate refunding your monies paid IGG may try and retract it. It would be the safest bet to avoid any further complications.

And thanks demon… I have been around kong for a while >.<’ Prior to gamestop buyout ect….

Easy solution… dispute with kongregate for product not recieved at:
Kredz@kongregate.com

In addition file a help ticket with kong. Zshadow and others from kongregate support are amazingly helpful. If you don’t get your product and dispute with your CC company guess what? Kongregate doesn’t get paid… they don’t like that. They than charge IGG back for these issues.

Topic: Galaxy Online / Research and Building Upgrade time

;tl dr
we all want to cry because its not fair that we have to do something players whom have played had to deal with? Ok I want event vouchers for every voucher i’ve invested in BP research… I have Civic 12 finishing, and SS 12 still in progress. Do they take time? Of course. Is having 55% recycle nice? Yes. Can’t wait to add another 5% too shipyard.
I do like your idea about beeing able to upgrade your support landscape buildings. In fact if all were upgradable to say lvl 10 it would give people more options in building… thus they would have to put off building OTHER buildings which take forever. This is ok if they get boosts like resources per hour, research ect. I think up to level 5 where each level is roughly a 1.75% increase giving you 15% boost at level 5. Hospital would be interesting as that would than be a drastic increase to heal time. Hm….

Goodluck to huma hunters!

It’s exactly like Aries, but with the extra bonus of permanent losses!


You shouldn’t be taking losses in Aries.

You should take minimal losses here.

The difference?
As of now you can’t really just peak in and plan where which comm is in these huma’s(i’m sure that will change). In addition to that even if you could your fleet movement planning on round 1 is critical, and this is where you will suffer most in the huma’s vs the constellation.

The positive? Its actually quite simple… As of now I hold first completion attempts for 12/13/14 that I know of on Ursa Major. 6129 losses on h14. H12 was 3k first run, 9k 2nd run(patience wasn’t with me). H13 Losseless.

Also important to note are the other items obtainable in the chests. So far I have gotten: 1 quadra gems chest = Saphire Blue Elect, 1 AGT, 1 random transfer, 1 Merge chip.

Meaning that at the potential for high losses, costly he3, and a vast increase to SP need in order to farm these on a regular like current H1-H10 are is not worth your time as of right now.

You mean you and your 30 or so alts? I lost track, is it three or four corps of alts?

You use alt-spies to sniff corps for offline people that have ships out and claim its something special. Scraping the bottom of the barrel there.

And yes, all base defenses can be breached. Mine fell eventually, but……

The point was, it was a foolish, poorly planned attack that was supposed to hurt and or intimidate me. It did neither. It back-fired.



Wind,


Considering that no one with “Smell” in their name is my alt you must still be confused. Considering that half your post EXCEPT for the last sentence is all circumstantial at best… sure lets just go with it. Fact is we just attack any and all people whom are tied to enemy corporations. Wear an enemy corp name, prepare to get it or hide under 72-hour truces all the time.

Which still proves my point valid, if one person messes up one attack it means nothing… we get more res and well planned attacks through our “scraping” of the bottom of the barrel than through trying to catch rbp fleets like obi did. Just ask addiction how much he lost. Want to see a true pvp whip like i did you? Stay untruced like addiction I’ll give you something to whine about.




You bet I cleaned out every drop of his res. Pays back for the 12k ish Liberty wings and the various tesla flags that died to space defense.

And Smelly was all mad because I was taken RBPs (tho I failed on the one while this was happening)

Those 41k, LW RBP raiders…

The 85k, about 50-60k misc Teslas, the rest LWs.

Level 11 Thors and AAs… Yeah they can punch through Teslas.

Lvl 11 thors can be countered… please learn how

before you try and make yourself seem big lets talk about legion losses today:

over 5 mil ships

Legion Alliance losses this week:

More than 90% dps dealt to losses

Please windancer go quit again. it was much better when you kept your mouth shout about matters you can’t actually be a big baddy about.

It has been attempted before, and has failed. Not because its not a good idea, but rather because its to easy for somebody to abuse such a thing. Unfortunately the amount of trust on the server is at an all time low, and it especially does not help that the host would profit.

If i could offer my personal opinion, i would say that there is no way to get enough support for something like this.

^ Anonymous did it. :) Gave away good items!

Unless, of course, you plan for a plot twist and come back :D

Topic: Galaxy Online / Cool Ideas

Direct trade of resources… never happen… will just encourage alts more than they are encouraged.


500k… level 20 would have to be at least 500 mil… otherewise having to do 3000000 transfers just to get enough resources for a 100k run of tesla would bore you to death and be no faster than just farming that player.

Topic: Galaxy Online / The Dictators and Constellations

Originally posted by chutaiko:

Hi Plas,

Its been awhile since we’ve talked…according to some I’m the most hated on S01 ;-)

Scorpio has always been about debuffing, a 6* Bain/Circe can stay alive long enough to do the constellation; outstatting is, unfortunately, not an option.

I’ve seen that dictators excels in Huma 9/10 and is marginally good in PvP. I’ve seen 9* dictators get ganked by a 6* PP (which must outstat to proc).

So basically, we all freaked out that Rayo/Titan were combining to be an unbeatable comm and it wa all for naught. Dictators is easily beatable, especially with Teslas and T3 weapons.



They should merge s03 with s01 and than Plasma, Chut and I can be most hated together!!

Uh… of course E*stack plays a big part in everything…. And if your in a strong corps you should be getting help from your corp or you are just in a corp with many WW’s which does not a strong Corp make.

Topic: Galaxy Online / The Dictators and Constellations

Hm… interesting to know Plasma;


people don’t know you? did you take some drugs before coming to that conclusion… I suppose they need to do a server merge so people can REALLY get to know you _






Anyway I’m actually kinda disappointed it doesn’t outstat in Scorpio 1-3. Now I could understand it possibly only not out-statting in Scorpio 4, but than again its not like scorpio is a super challenge with the right ships. I’ll have to do some testing on my own to find out how well it works in Taurus

Time zone should not matter. The maintenance is based off of in game time. Just need to pay more attention.

imagine your pc rebooting every so often for upgrades and it breaks auto save in case it breaks the upgrade, and you have to check OS homepage for when it will happen? assuming you hoping to measure up-time in months/years and restarts are still a daily occurence. interesting how certain things get lower expectations than others.

Enough said about what wasn’t civil in your post.

Originally posted by mayten:

Gemstones merged into gems are random. So even if you earned 5 gems per day and got all the gems you needed: it would take 209 days to earn a lvl 6 gem.

That is, a regular GemVI, not a quadra.

There have been quadra gem x10 promos at 100 mp each, so 5.2k mp sounds right. Edit: Or actually, 1024*10 = 10k mp?, x12=120k mp for a comm.

I don’t think the increased stat increase is necessary. It already gives a huge advantage to have just that little bit more than your opponents. In pvp a 9* divine has about a set maximum and the only thing that varies is the initial/lvlup roll of statpoints.

All this proposal however creates a problem with proc chances. Some skills are not meant to get 100% proc, some will require rebalancing, when the total value of gems gets inflation. This is perhaps not fair to players already owning a high star comm of those.

Then again, is inflation in one of the few things that has retained a little steady value in the game, to be called fair? I don’t see why you want this so bad, everything you have done so far will become more worthless. You may feel like it’s coming anyway, and try to propose something not as destructive to you, but to support the speed up of more inflation seems like a weird thing to do to me.

I understand you would like a more equalitairian game, but this proposal won’t close the ‘gap’, which in fact, will never close because the rise above the field is in fact what drives the game’s revenue. Sorry to point it out to you.

Also, I in fact do support jjjuice11’s criticism.
Kind regards,
Mayten

While you make good points in the re-balance needed to make this concept work its not to say that it wouldn’t be too hard from a coding perspective to take on that undertaking. Especially if you just scale the balance accordingly. And actually there have been quadra promo’s for 10 mp each…(bet you missed those).

The while the increase in stat rate for a level 6 gem may not be required it does put a re purpose in a gem focus concept. While its not necessarily a want its a different avenue and approach that has not been suggested before on mainsite or here. Its a new concept.

I do find it rather interesting that your first post ever on kongregate was in response to this thread.

I’m for it. It would help the f2p players get more gems, as well as be more competitive overall. They still won’t be able to compete with a WW, but it will at least help close the gap a little.

How does this close the gap? It would actually widen the gap more. WW will just make the level 6 gems with mp while getting the extra gems the f2p get. So assuming f2p use level 3 gems, there will be a 3 level gap instead of a 2 level gap. That’s not even counting the super duper bonus ren is suggesting.

The only reason any kind of “increase” was suggest was merely the fact of the sheer amount of gems needed to make a level 6 gem would cost. While you may spend on it thats great. Not everyone will feel the need to spend $100 a gem when level 5’s do quite nicely. _
