Topic: Time World / Guide - Cost estimation for TimeWorld

Can we include in cost the value of our own time spend on a game? Maybe baseline could be $10 hours… maybe $50 for some…. so, if you need 10k hours.. right…. walking right along.

Topic: Time World / PlayMage pls explain me

I am just sad one or two players just left my galaxy…. they were, what I would consider, heavy golders, btw.

Truly, any computer game that requires you to spend more than $10 a month better be top notch… this game hardly has 3D graphics, amazing special effects, or never ending story line with great depth…. plus it crashes on occasion(probably its fault of my computer), and some other things… why spend $100/month?

Just compare it to Baldur’s Gate II, you pay up once… and then can play almost forever… and even after you can customize your own world and play with your friends, and run your own servers… (no extra cost outside of bandwith)… or just join other pay or free servers.

I mean, if someone can spend $1000 or more on a flash game, good for them and their fortune in life… but honestly, having a choice I would simply donate most of it to some cause(feed the hungry, or Greenpeace _, or whatever).

Topic: Galaxy Online / A question to IGG Games, please answer

Swordmonger, I was directly commenting on your own prior posts to which my points are valid.

Also anyone can read various Kongregate terms here: http://www.kongregate.com/games/new
and directly game uploading terms here: http://www.kongregate.com/pages/uploader-agreement

Anyhow, I am agreeing with what you say. Especially when it comes to IGG having little to no incentive to do much on kong servers. Kong is just a tiny aspect of their business. I believe IGG would be very happy if kong go2 players moved to IGG/facebook servers… of whic, overtime, many people have done anyways.

As to free mp, it is up to IGG if they want to give them or not… but all I am saying that apparent lack of any access to mp(even in tiny amounts) finally makes kong players quit playing this game. Perhaps if IGG had even lower package and less efficient package to buy mp (10 kreds for 10 mp) that would make all the difference?

Or perhaps if on kong servers IGG decided to give loyalty bonus of 1 mp weekly….. it still would still take 5 years to even equal smallest current package avaiable to kong players. Hardly unbalancing.

Area around me if filled with inactivities, and I believe it is because of no access to mp issue… I think IGG would retain A LOT of more active players on kong servers if they addressed it. That is all. It is in their power, but yeah, as you said.. it is up to them.. we can only discuss it on these forums and rise these issues… that is all.

This was the exact question I was answering. “Why doesn’t IGG give out free mp?”. The reason is put succinctly in my TL;DR above.

really? there are plenty of games that use currency type of thing(whatever their game name equivalent of them is) bought with kreds on kongregate….. they have no problem giving out free gifts of that curency(and in game currency equivalents which could be anything in form of items for example).

Also, kongregate requirements of what developes can do inside the games is pretty public… do you see kongregate forbbiding developers from granting bonuses and free gifts of strictly “in game” currency if developer wishes to do so? could you link to that?

igg.com servers have some in game free events things as well… such as a bit better lucky wheel extra free spins, for example… kong servers dont have those simply because igg does not feel like putting them here.

swordmonger… Kong might prevent IGG from letting you buy MP without Kreds, nothing permits IGG from occasionally giving mp to players for various in game stuff, during events… whatever,… or for simple loyalty to the game.

swordmonder… also igg might not be in position to give free kreds… but it is in position to give out mall points. Kong can not stop IGG if IGG simply decided to give each player, for example, 1mp a week for loyalty.

on other hand, I have a bunch of reset cards I have no use for…. cant even sell them apparently….

Topic: Galaxy Online / A question to IGG Games, please answer

What swordmonger said… pretty much, IGG does not own kongregate(I think)… so they don’t offer many things here. (probably not as easy, or not worthy, to implement here)

Players who cannot use free kongregate offers, or used up free offers they qualified for are out of luck… and can either play without access to mall points, pay up, or move away from kongregate to igg/facebook servers.

It is not that going to igg/facebook server solves all the problems but if getting mall points is your goal, well, today you could have gotten 8 mall points(today, ads sometiem stay up for longer… sometime only for a day or two). No special signup, no surveys.. or whatever.

The way I am looking at it… playing on kongregate servers is more hardcore. And on igg/facebook servers easier because of ease you can obtain mp. Still, keep in mind.. that a few mp you get weekly from free offers is nothing compared to 1000s of mps some people purchase, so you will fall behind anyway.

((there are some other free things you get besides mp.. you can get a few badges daily, for example… and a few other things… but these are mostly linked with your facebook account…. so you might choose not to take them, its optional))

Topic: Time World / Feedback and Suggestions

I see what all of you are saying… but have no idea how to change it to make it better… about auctions….

Maybe simply make auctions longer(+1-4hr?), remove reset time,.. and let you overbid yourself? Let you overbid yourself… so when you have to go… you can just boost your own price to level you are willing to pay?

And maybe let each person make one bid per 15min or 30 min… per item to make things interesting?

Not sure about better… but very different :)

Topic: Time World / Feedback and Suggestions

Yup, no point to bid before 30 min mark… why bost price too early/unecessearily? Generally I cant outbid folks… but maybe if I wait to these 30 min… they might not be around to overbid my bid?

Anyhow that is my thinking….

+1 to your suggestions…. and especially to that galaxy color bid… thats big big +

shrugs, you welcome.. but you should not simply cut and paste various parts to fit what you want to say. (or what you want to confuse)
/

To paraphrase my posts … I said that THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SERVERS CONECTED TO FACEBOOK are SUPPERIOR to those offered on kongregate servers. If my prior post was not clear to you(or others)… I hope above line will clarify that.
/
/
also that KONGREGATE SERVERS CUSTOMERS GET MUCH LESS THAN OTHER NON KONGREGATE SERVERS’ CUSTOMERS…. per dollar value because of special fantastic offers, including COMPLETELY FREE offers, that IGG DOES NOT put on kongregate servers.
/
/
in additions SERVERS CONNECTED THROUGH IGG WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK get EASY AND FREEMALL POINTS” that KONGREGATE SERVERS DO NOT GET… no surveys, sign ups, or anything is required(just watching some couple minutes video or look at an ad. It really helps to motivate some non $$$ players(perhaps too young, or too poor, to have own game money) to put in some more effort into the game… on kongregate servers they simply become inactive(quit)
/
/
Does above make it more clear Ochiix?
/
xxxx
About those free mall points , they are NOT AVAILABLE on kongregate, on IGG/facebook servers I got “6” Mall Points in just last couple days for pretty much nothing. No hassle, no sign ups, no giving your information to anyone, or anything… dont you think Ochiix that getting even a couple free mp in a week couple really motivate people to do better as opposed to having NO OPPORTUNITY at all to advance above some specific point in the game… with these few points there is at least hope.
/
/
Now, Ochiix, ORIGINAL POSTER, and posters past him were concerned that nothing is being done(or very little) to make servers more fair (especially keeping in mind IGL) and even less to keep players motivated and active on kongregate servers…
.
.
Ochiix, you already said that you are okay that people on kongregate servers must pay more for the same thing(taking into account special offers not available to them) but how about those who simply dont have ability(perhaps limited by law?) for whatever reason to purchase mp for kreds here… are you saying they are out of luck and should just quit?

Direct log in from IGG website. IGG.com(you can use your facebook log in, or create IGG sign in). When you log in you have Free Points tab. Often you gotta watch a 1-3 minute commercial for 1 mp. Sometimes there are more offers…sometimes less. Also, from time to time IGG has free events (had a couple in last week or two) which also are not reflected on kongregate and are happening besides Free Points tab. Although from my limited experience winnings from such events are still bound.

Some of these events are not obious at first glance and you must be on the lookout for them. Either in game messages, or actual events tab… anyhow, I did not see these events reflected on kongregate servers. (as well as free points tab is not available on kongregate)

For example extra free spinny lucky wheel event (not that good compared to other events, but a current example)… it lets you do one free spin daily on a special, a bit better, spinning lucky wheel (click event tab, then pick bottom event)… just example of an event not on kongregate as of this post. So, no.. these are not our version.

But we, I guess, can do kongregate free offers…and use kredits to buy mp here… although these never really worked for me here that well. Or were truly bothersome to do. Not to mention you would need to gather 50 kreds from free offers to make smallest buy for mp here.

Addition: also, IGG pretty much gives away mp points… person who checks daily could get a few(maybe even 20-30 in a lucky week) mp a week(if they go for “Free points” tab…. $$$ players still greatly dominate… but everyone who sticks around has a chance to end up with something decent. You will not get to that 7* divine in a very loooong time on that but there is a light at the end of the tunnel…. ($$$ players can get for “free” that 7*, of course, when they buy more mp at once on occassional event/special day _)

Note: above is based on my experience… your observations may vary ;)

Topic: Galaxy Online / I.G.L. & Competitive Servers

Ochiix,

to test things, I played for a bit(week+) on a new IGG website… and new server (so new, highest thing in AH a few days ago was a watchman hull)

within first couple days I had about a dozen of quadra gems(mostly given, welcome gift i guess)…. something that takes many weeks to accomplish here…. unless you buy them. Furthermore, players get multiple bonuses thanks to their connection to facebook… not huge, but many of them. Plus there are couple other things that seem to make life a bit easier.

Also, I have seen a number of specials there that beat kongregate specials by ALOT.. not just a bit… but as in many times better.

In addition, IGG seems to have based a lot of their strategy around facebook, they have NO INCENTIVE to link from their website to here…. just look at a difference in a number of players playing just GO2… kongregate for them is just a small tiny side dish by comparison. I am sure they like money coming from here… but it is like a few grains compared to beach full of sand.

Anyhow,
The initial post is about attracting to and keeping more people in kongregate servers and making things more even….
Why would any new players want to stick around here(provided he does not mind using facebook)… if for non $$$ players life seems to be easier there… and $$$ players seem to get better deals there as well?

Btw. I like kongregate, and will not stop playing GO here anytime soon… but if I found GO2 on IGG wbesite first it would be very unlikely that I would even consider playing GO2 on kongregate servers.

News from IGG website:

Buy Mall Points today and we’ll match your purchase for free! That’s a 100% MP bonus! We’ll even throw in an extra 10% bonus for MVP players!

21k mall points for just under 500USD, +100% MP bonus… +10% for MVP players.. that is almost 100mall points per 1$

can anyone tell me how many mall points they can get for 1$ on kongregate?

xxxxxxx edit
above applies, I think, only to those playing on facebook.. not kongregate.

@ochiix, all fine and dandy for request 2 but what do you say about #1?

IGG linking to Kongregate from their main website? They should already have done so. They must have some sort of agreement with Facebook or some such. Otherwise I would have expected it to be a no brainer business decision to advertise choice/option of kong server from IGG’s website.

I think facebook is a bigger money maker for them and they rather attract people there…. plus they can do so much more through facebook. Kongregate for IGG is rather limited… I think. Use of facebook has a lot more of potential for them.

For that matter IGG already links to this game from their website… to facebook servers. I signed up some time ago, if only to see difference between here and there.

And for attracting more players…. only x players will want to pay money for this money on kongregate. All the rest after seeing how disadvantaged they are compared to $$$
players…. quit. Hence, 1000s of inactivities on kongregate of non $$$ players for this game.

IGG needs to give non $$$ players reason to come here and stick around beyond doing some basic instances… if they do that, there will be a lot more players… perhaps more would be willing to spend $$$ too.

There is very little non $$$ can do… and to fight vs 5 or 6 divine commanders (which happens regurarily, in space raids for example) with commoners and one or two star skill commanders… no chance. Not only these divines(or even 5-6 stars legendarys/supers/whatever) can lead much bigger stacks…but also have some cool abilities which are more liekly to trigger… with much better gems/implants too(most likely)… total overkill.

IGG should probably somehow make so players with these multi star commanders could not attack/fight vs players who have much less stars…. somehow… or at least try to differentiate between less and more uber players from weaker ones(read: common or only with 1 or 2 star commanders).

Like space raids… perhaps make it so you cannot intercept/go after charts with commanders that have * rating greater than 3 level of chart (meaning, 4 star commanders cannot go after chart 1, 5-6+ star commanders cannot go after chart level 2 or below, 7-8+stars cannot go after charts level 3 or below… and all can go after lvl4) or whatever other limits are appropiate.

Further… make sealing cards somehow available beyond $$$… there is nothing more disappointing when you use commander card and end up with next to useless 1 star skill commander. Once people realize what a mistake that was… and how hard it is to gain new commanders… they give up. (15-20m on AH, might not be a lot for a lot players but for new players to even think about buying commander cards from market… months of game play, at least for those who do spend less than 2h hours on kongregate daily). Sealing cards would really help you keep around non $$$ but active players… which I would think would make $$$ players much happier too.

Plus sealing would give non $$$ more hope for future in this game… heck, make it so each player receives one sealing card every month(part of monthly package for devote players?) that would make a lot of people happy… both $$$ and non $$$, with $$$ players still having to buy sealing cards if they want more.(and I think they would)

Anyways… some rumblings.

Anyhow… anyone remembers BYM? lets hope this game will not face same fate… .

Topic: Time World / Give starting players a boost

for new players… aside from guaranteed equipment…. give them a skill book as well,… perhaps one per chapter as they complete them… by chapter 10 that is 10 magic books/skills… not much, but it will help them

btw. maybe make each chapter a predetermined specific skill… so maybe at lvl 1 they would get a build skill… but somewhere at around chapter 8 or 9 a triple or multi.

I think givign starting players some skills would be better than equipment(even if they screw up with them), because they can get lucky with equipment in the mall… but skills, especially good ones… are much harder too get. Especially if your galaxy does not do too well in pillars.

I’m not a golder, I got screwed by the level cap (Couldn’t build CC36 or CC37 [forget which] without completing chapter 12) which pushed me back 3-4 days, never got a 24 hour card, started playing this game long after shoe, and I’m STILL going to start my CC38 in less than 2 days.

That said, I would like some time to build up some res and work on other buildings…so my hope is the caps don’t go up just yet…

But as I’ve said for a long time; This game still says “beta” when the game loads. I fully expect 10 planets and L100 hero/equip/build caps at some point down the line if the game doesn’t die first.

I am just curious when the game stops being beta :D, I bet that would be the time when it will be shut down… lol. Of course…. I could be wrong and pm could say.. with next expansion.. YEY. we are no longer beta…

…. we are back to Alpha :D :D :D
