i guess one of the downsides to making these topics is that it’s extra weird when the dead player is doing alien invasion (see metreon)

Poseidon hit you with Anti-nova for 218880 damage points.

strange that it’s not 250000. i healed that turn, think everything else was normal.

if i were the argumentative type, i would say:

- dw isn’t about skill (except maybe mad keyboard skillz?!), it’s about grinding. grind more.
- if the card game was based around luck, everyone would complain x1000
- skip button
- this is almost universally true/completely normal
- no idea why folks feel entitled to an arena ring, the thing is completely unnecessary, and it’s totally normal for the biggest grinders/spenders to be advantaged.

Topic: Dream World / 100GEM for you! if you help me

i don’t understand how folks can complain so fiercely about a free way to get more gems. maybe it’s not perfect, idk, and yeah, i’m sorry that y’all don’t have tons of anitheas or whatever, but…it’s free

aw snap thought you were gonna say something relevant
i have no idea why you’re focusing on one tiny (and relatively unimportant) adjective in my post rather than saying anything about the content of the suggestion.

on further thought, i think the attentiveness numbers could even be very different without impacting the game too much – e.g. it could even start at 1% at level 1 and increase 1% per level basically ad infinitum. even at a seemingly ridiculous level 100 it would only double the chance of her using weaken.

i think that this would remove tons of coins from the system, but would eventually give the players a nice efficiency boost.

Dont understand how it would remove tons of coins though

come on. every ally book is essentially worth 626m—>0
edit: guess it doesn’t apply to autoers, but who cares, idk

Topic: Dream World / Official Bug Reports Thread (new)

some random (s2) town mobs’ coin rewards seem to be glitching. i didn’t notice anything off in (s1) atlantis earlier; so weird.

ex: level 80 R3D4-MK3 – You received 12,441,492 coins!
You received 38,998,608,448 experience! (power finish bonus)

level 80 aeroid – You received 12,441,492 coins!
You received 38,998,608,448 experience! (power finish bonus)

level 80 scorptron – You received 12,441,492 coins!
You received 38,998,608,448 experience! (power finish bonus)

then, later:
level 80 aeroid – You received 8,294,328 coins!
You received 38,998,608,478 experience! (power finish bonus)

level 80 scorptron – You received 8,294,328 coins!
[missed the exp on this one]

seems to only happen very occasionally, and i have no explanation :p these non-event coin mobs seem to come in packs that only last for a few seconds at a time, none enrage, all the stats given above are with genius, and i’ve only observed this occurring with regular, same-level-as me mobs – no purples or reds, chests, or puzzle boxes seem to be affected, and neither do the level 79 mobs in the area.

I think a nice tweak would be if orc/posi ring replaced the crystal ring’s Isendel usefulness. Seems simple enough, and I’m sure everyone would appreciate the +1 bank slot.

Or maybe we could just dispense with the absurdity of needing a ring to travel somewhere more efficiently.

I enjoy having to play relatively efficiently in order to be effective. Even a pretty small coin percentage boost (event on) would effectively mean that saving coins during event off time for the purpose of misting them off later, or saving gems for gemming e for coins, would be pointless. I can’t really speak for the high level players, but that’s my experience, and I expect that it’s consistent with theirs.

The search for free-ness of play (or anything) represents only a misconception of reality. Truth is transient, eternally fading into its next best form. To cling is to fail to perceive :)

Topic: Dream World / Share broken

I’d like to be able to receive crystals from all of my guildmates instead of just some of them. Several have reported that neither the “temp fix” that Kongregate supposedly instituted over the weekend nor the full resolution that was supposed to happen “early this week” has allowed them to share crystals.

Please make invasion end when the game says invasion is going to end end rather than two minutes before, and/or give me the extra 1% that I’d have earned seconds after two minutes before the game said invasion was going to end. Thanks.

Topic: Dream World / I want to play on weekdays sometimes to

Originally posted by MrFnClean:

Being a weekend work warrior means you have to adjust, not the rest of the world.

That’s a fair point. I’ve worked overnights before, and it’s like a wholly different culture. To be honest, I didn’t express an opinion on whether giving players the choice of when to take their event days was a good idea because I’m not sure that it is. Having discombobulated events like that might make guild coordination more difficult – as it is, everyone who plays a lot pretty much does so on the weekends; the people who take events on weekdays might end up kind of isolated. Bosses might live inconveniently long lives, and raging alone would also take longer. On the other hand, if those players won’t play much on the weekends anyway and they want to during the week, event coins/exp would sure make it easier for them. I’m not sure that I see a specific, meaningful downside – DW would just be more playable for a wider audience.

3 additional event days per week IS giving the players “more more more”. And there would only be 1 non-event day per week left… Let’s be serious.

It’s annoying to be so badly misread. My idea was to allot players three event days per week total, not in addition to the current event days.

Topic: Dream World / Magic Pick and Puzzle Decoder

Well, like I said I don’t know anything about script prevention, but one improvement I’d like to see to the magic pick is that if you “open” (rather than explore) a chest by pressing “1,” and then elect to pick the lock, the chest thinks you’re trying to bash it, and you have to hit “pick” again, after waiting for the delay. I’m not sure how simple fixing this would be, but it’d be nice.

Apparently they delay is about preventing scripting, but I have no knowledge of how it supposedly does this.

Thank You :)

I’m quite sure you mistyped.
Doubling mist price is outlandish.
Will not gem.

To be honest I’d rather have mists capped than be able to buy extras at ripoff prices.
I hope there’s a notification, but I don’t expect one, heh.
