bump

The above statement still applies btw… too many useless/outdated “PvP contest” etc. threads are stickies and cluttering the forum.

How about a ‘guide’ thread then, with the wiki, spreadsheets etc.?

Considering the AP cost of travelling, it would be very welcome to have an icon displayed above the cities indicating available quests, current friend ratios for Wanted quests, maybe even shop info with items for sale at the location. The available quests icon should be clickable or have a pop-up indicating the requirements and rewards.

At least the items for sale can be checked on the wiki ;)

You misunderstand.

I won 2 with my opponent fighting to the end. 6 points

I lost 1 fighting to the end. 0 points

That’s what I’m complaining about 2 conceeded fights (which I would certainly have won) give the same points as if I’d lost them

I think it’s to prevent ‘win trades’ where people lose on purpose…

You probably already have unity installed under windows, that’s why…you just have to wait for a linux version of unity (likely?!)…and play under windows till then

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Attention: 3-day PvP Contest!!!

As long as PvP matches are:
*so expensive (why can’t all troops resurrect for free at the end, then MORE would PvP…)
*don’t give any advantage (no special rewards, like troops, gems…or just cosmetical stuff like unit skins)
*matchmaking is so flawed it’s no fun at all.
I rather stop playing until PvE content is expanded before I grind frustrating PvP…

Btw, any news about ‘warriors of the north’? :)

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Official bugs thread


Thanks for informing us about that. Did the number of disconnects reduce since you posted about that? Do you get any error messages, like “you were disconnected from the server”?
And what about the links? They do not appear or you simply get no resources/stamina when your friends use it?
We’ll check how the Paladin’s chain lightning works.

Yes, and luckily the resets were only a very temporary issue. Now after DCs battles continue like they should.

The Links work fine since last update/change. Though many players have quite a disadvantage now compared to those that got (lots of) free units… any compensation to cheer up the community? :)
I’m really excited to see in which way you’ll change the gifting & daily bonus (for kong). I got lucky with my 7th rewards. I jsut hope it doesn’t become too random (like a ‘wheel of fortune’). And any news on ways for players to obtain free gems (a daily quest that gives 1 or 2 maybe)?

And thanks a lot for responding to all the reports! Always good to see the devs active in the support forums :)

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / 15th medal, tough decision

Originally posted by davidpchiu:

thepeacemaker – what’s AOE?

Also, according to the wikia, the archmage has the Paralyzing Shackles which reduces the enemy’s speed by 2. If the enemy has a speed of 2, does that mean they can’t move at all or is a speed of 1 the minimum?

http://kingsbountylegions.wikia.com/wiki/Archmage

AOE means ‘area of effect’, so an area (damage) skill, hitting several enemies (like fireball etc.).

I’m a few days away from my 15th medal as well…can’t make up my mind (I wish we knew which of those units we’ll be able to farm through wanteds with next update…).

General tips:

At lvl 27 (just finished the game) I’m using paladins, inquisitors, gunners, druids and eyebeasts (lvl 3-5).

For those ‘ambush’ battles where you start in the middle (like ‘hooded conspirators’) Either use pure defender army (pala, knights, brontaurs, poss. bears, swordsmen, vagabonds, zombies…) or 4 def. and Inqs (if you have enough) to reduce casualties – I managed to finish all later ambush battles with 0 losses.

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / You ask - we reply!

Since there’s no official ‘suggestion’ thread, I’ll post my ideas/wishes here:

  • crafting is a great part of the game, but getting high-tier materials is a pain. I know it’s a f2p-game and you have to make money, but I’d like to be bale to craft all my low- and mid-tier stuff into high-tier mats to be able to actually craft the stuff available without farming a ceratin enemy group for hundreds of times…
  • I know the game is beta (and f2p, see above ;) ), but please don’t let it become ‘pay-2-win’. By offering certain units (Ents…) only in the royal shop, making those units unavailable for free players, hurts the game balance. And PvP will be the only part people will care for in a while (if there’s no content patch soon).
  • MORE CONTENT PLS! :) Units, spels, locations, quests etc. etc. I love the original games and there’s LOTS of potential in them to enhance ‘Legends’.
  • it would be nice if we could read mail while on patrol. We can use the links, so why not accept wanted requests too?

The friend system is alright, but I hope that:

  • accepting links can be done without refreshing the whole game
  • links work for more than 3 people again…
  • highest lvl players show up first in battles so we don’t have to use lvl 1 (or no) spells at lvl~30
  • we can have an effect (choose: heal, dmg…) on the ‘friend spells’ (upgrades?!)

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Official bugs thread

Hey Nival, I know you want us to post stuff like this in your own forum, but I hate relogging there all the time, people don’t want to sign up extra for this, and the kong community is used to putting stuff here (and good at it ;) ).

So, I’ll just start a bug collection thread:

- a disconnect now (for an hour for me) not continues but resets the battle, except for losses! Meaning I DC, at the end of a battle, refresh right away, and the battle didn’t count, plus I lost troops (ward is proof)? Not right this way… Especially bad since the disconnects (server sided) suddenly happen all the time for many players!

- In general the servers don’t seem to suffice (during rush hours).

- the resource/unit links still don’t work (reliably). Works for some players, not at all/only sometimes for others. The community couldn’t figure anything out so far (not browser related etc.). For me, e.g., links usually work in the middle of the night (like GMT+1) for a couple hours.

- (already posted in your forum): When using the chain lightning spell of the paladin, the ‘chain’ only spreads in a row, not in all dimensions. I had 4 stacks of enemies standing together like a ‘star’ (I hope you can imagine, hard to get them in that configuration to make a screenshot of it now…), when the lightning hit, it only hit the center unit (which I attacked directly) and the one left and right of it. NOT the one behind. I bet it’s the same no matter from which direction I’d attack them. Not sure if it’s the same for the spell from the spell book..

- more to come… ;)

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / WIKI

Hello everyone,

a couple of guys from the kong community made and are working on a wiki to this game. It’s pretty advanced already, having info on units, spells, locations, quests etc. etc.

Please check it out (I find a wiki more useful than a forum for looking up stuff) and contribute if you like!

P.S.: @mod, pls make this a sticky :)

Exactly, I would have taken the kreds from CoG (to spend them on other games) and have the CoG account banned, but I was denied that, so I thought fuck it.

Originally posted by emily_greer:

I don’t really want to get into an argument with you guys about the analogy, and yes it is mine, not tricky’s. I agree it’s not perfect, like almost all analogies. But the main point is that when you buy something in game you get immediate, irreversable benefit that often gives you additional power in the game. While it’s true that you haven’t exactly used it up that makes it worse — it’s like getting a refund on an ice cream cone you can continue to eat forever. But I’m getting into analogies again, bad Emily!

The main point here is that CoG has fixed the gem issue and is working on improved disclosure on the wheel and given all players compensation for both, as well as the 25% bonus from us on kreds spent.

FYI TheRealArse: giving away kreds does cost us money as we need to pay developers once you spend them. Nothing’s every really free, even when you can print money. :-/

It was clear from the beginning though, if we wanted a refund (of kreds) for CoG then we’d have the CoG (!) account banned/deleted. Of course.

The gem bug was minor, but still not taking actions against cheaters ruining the (flawed) balance (at least on server 2) plus all the crap with false pretenses (wheel etc.) is what really annoys (not only paying) players.

Yeah you have transaction fees, but I wasn’t talking about kreds, but the actual items we spend kreds on…I’m very sure you get your share from every kred purchase, so don’t even try to deny that.

I’d like to continue on Kongregate’s ice cream cone analogy they like so much. I know trickyrodent likes to utilize it and now emilygreer uses it as well so they’re pretty fond of it.

Spending money on CoG is like buying a salmonella-flavored ice cream cone. You eat it and get the benefit of it immediatly and permanently. However, you have to go to the hospital to get your stomach pumped out. The icrecream store offers you a full refund of either a new icecream (at your own risk) or your money back. If you dare to go for the money back, YOU GET BANNED FROM THE ICECREAM STORE.

Makes sense, no?

Actullay they give you a cloned ice-cream cone, since the ‘original’ doesn’t dissappear (mind the nature of digital things…). So actually they sell stuff they can reproduce at NO COST, contrary to “real” items. This is why that analogy (tricky said it’s a fave of one of the kong founders…) is so flawed. And why a refund isn’t illegit at all, since you never “used up” what you payed for. Maybe they’ll just change their ToS to “kreds are there to pay for the right to use stuff”. Like a lending fee ;)
