Like I said though, that’s been CoG’s strategy for the entire time you and I have been playing. Examples!

Imagine how deathstorm felt after spending thousands on OJ gems right before Christmas 2011.

Or the spenders who actually bought Inspiring Lights and high level Skill Books, or Sky Hammers, right before Abyss was released.

Or people who bought Mat Chest 2 praying for an OJ transmute item, only for people to start hitting Layer 4.

Or people who spent a ton competing for Gold Medals in the Olympic Games, only to have red Medals suddenly become incredibly available from almost every event and twice daily from the World Boss (I got hit by this one).

Red Gems have been slowly on this path since Abyss started dropping them, and now it has accelerated with Dungeons having them in the drop table.

The current big one is FD and RR, as you note, which some wasted butt-tons on either in Recharge events or trying to Advanced Transmute. And inevitably the next one will be for people who spent thousands to get Jesus Gear as activated ability weapons slowly become available for normal players. Hell, if the 110 red val gear wasn’t a blatant lie that would be happening now.

It’s inevitable, since CoG is forced to continually power creep to keep the free masses interested. But that means inevitably previous spender gear becomes common, which means that spender gear must power creep even more, which means spenders have to re-spend to get it. Free players are happy with the cycle, and people who are ABOUT to spend are happy with the cycle, and those are the two constituencies that matter to CoG. People who once spent a bunch but no longer are bring nothing to the table from their perspective, except to the extent that it incentivizes other people to spent to beat them or causes them to re-buy to stay afloat… which plays into the power creep treadmill perfectly. I’m sure we can both think of examples of both of those behaviors rather readily :v The circle of CoG is very effective.

Well put DV, Ive gone back to DarkSwords, at least my investment there is still worth the $$$ Ive spent. CoG will continue to leak paying players & gather the bottom feeders & trolls with its current M.O. – Add me on KG bud, perhaps we can enjoying gaming again on another digital distraction.

Same shit different day on CoG.

That really must suck for you. I am so sorry that CoG is trying to bring some balance to this game. That must be rough for you to actually have some competition now.

Don’t you just hate it when everybody gets the same opportunity for some good drops?

Balance? This has caused an imbalance in power dumbass, read my post before cracking wise, thanks.

I read your post. It sounds like you are butthurt that lower lvl players are getting drops that they couldn’t get before without paying to spin the adv. wheel.
This game has always been unbalanced because it has been overwhelmingly pay-to-win. The fact that drops have increased is only going to close the gap a little bit between big spenders and free-to-play players. You are just mad that you spent money to get a big advantage and now that advantage is not as big as it was. You have the same chance to get drops from fantasy dungeons as everyone else.

You are trolling the forum looking to disagree with someone, how about you carry on enjoying CoG completely free & allow the players who pay to keep it free for you, a place & the right to justifiably complain about being mistreated by a game they’ve invested money in? Hopefully you spend some cash, lvl high & hard & then get shafted by CoG so you to can get some idiot to quote your posts & throw down idiotic comments, just like I have you.

6 purple crap a day during “increased” droprate.. No drop from fantasy dungeon mode… Just no interested in any more of the nonsense players dont have to put up with on every other game I play. Earn my money from now on CoG, tired of following the imaginary carrot.

Topic: Call of Gods / S.O.S.

Hello CoG,
I just want to inform you of a scary but harsh reality: You, this game, the dev’s & the current drop/reward percentile are leaking players at a ridiculous rate, top level players are leaving almost on a daily or weekly basis! Spenders tired of wasting money for way to low chances at “something good” just dont invest anymore, people who dedicated hours & hours of play into CoG over the last few years have just said their goodbyes & logged out! That thing we’ve been trying to warn you about, losing your players, IT IS HERE. They are literally fading away or just vanish entirely. We need an incentive to play on, better drops an actual droprate, rewards we can use, tweak the droprates ect As it stands your player base was your best resource, 80% of the people online were not there for the game but for the other players who made the game fun & offered a reason to login, without them, all that remains is a game which really isnt enjoyable anymore & hasnt been for to long. Please forward this to your creative team, thank you.

Topic: Call of Gods / Advanced Wheel: Modifications & Improvements

Originally posted by dilawdid:

The Advanced wheel is a major attraction for players in this game, however it
doesnt get spun very often because of the high cost and the good chance of
ending up with worthless items. If you would only modify the contents of the
wheel and change the way it operates slightly people would spin it alot more and
you would end up making more money. Sounds like a win win. Below is a
mock-up of how the Advanced Wheel should appear. As you can tell some items have been removed and other more sought after items have been added. Of course we cant expect to get a red every single spin as that would devalue them, but I
think this is a good medium.

Red gems have been added and the Red Gem box has been removed. It’s not a
huge difference, but players like to see what gem it is they may get beforehand
rather than the unknown gem box. There has also been some OJ Gems added
instead of the OJ Gemx box for the same reason. People can always use these
gems, so its nice to have them on the wheel. Other items added are individual
Oath Pieces. You will also find the new items from Purgatory randomly on the
wheel as well as items from the lv.110 Fire Dust set.

The biggest complaint about the wheel is you spin it 4 or 5 times and end up
with garbage that is worthless! Items removed from the wheel are: Inspiring
Lights, Harmony Pieces, Destroyer Pieces, Big Resource Pack, Diagram Pack.

Here is how the wheel should operate above. Instead of refreshing after every
single spin, once you spin, the item you win is greyed out and you can not get
it again. The above picture shows someone who has spun 5 times and received a
gem, bark monsters, 2 oath pieces and a dungeon pack. This is 250g spent already
for you CallOfGods. If this person continues to spin their chance of landing on
a red is greatly improved, however if they were to stop spinning when they come
back the wheel would be refreshed. One reason why people hate spending
money on this game is the extreme randomness of how it operates, with this
method at least they are assured of what they will get. There are 16 items on
the wheel, resulting in 800g for you. This would value the red items between
150-250g, of course some of those items would end up being sold in AH and bought
buy other people who have to add gold, which is more money for COG yet again.

Please pass this on to your developers and thank you for thanking me for
playing your game.

Royalty. Server 4. Templar.

+1!!! I love the feature whereby the junk you have already recieved becomes greyed out, Ive often spent 250-500G in a session & ALWAYS stop because of the pure garbage Ive gotten & will obviously continue to get. The ability to build up to a real reward would solve so many problems & reduce wheel rage. As it stands i as well as many others are tired of spending with no reward to speak of & this could revive a dead wheel & maybe bring back players who’ve left to enjoy gaming elsewhere.

M2 is up & running again. – I spoke to soon!
COG: Theodin.s5 logs into dorkette.s5 when he uses S4&5&6 link, this is a paying customer who has lost access to his account to someone else while he is stuck on some bullshit account?! Fix it today, i will take this to CoG Mainsite if you do not get on it immediately, should that have no effect i will leave, i refuse to pay money to a game that steals accounts & places my financial investment at risk by giving someone else access to my character. BE WARNED COG HAS MISASSIGNED ACCOUNTS YOU MAY HAVE LOST ACCESS TO YOUR CHARACTER.

Hi, all, M2 server is migrating server. sorry for the trouble.

Is there an actually working time frame this will be completed in? A simple warning post stating KG CoG M2 Server would be unavailable could save you many angry gamers by the way. Please have the foresight to let us know when it is up & functioning again, its Christmas day & dealing with frustration trying to login all day is the last thing any of us want to do, thanks.

1. New goal under Hero tab – Summon a Chaos Hero
2. An exchange for T4 to T4 units to help with the current randomness of troops & lack of population space. Eg. Trade in any type of T4 unit for another of your choice.

Suggested new feature: Genetics – Players are able to obtain (buy / transmute / abyss / dungeon) a potion of 4 types; Gene of Agility, Gene of Power, Gene of Vitality, Gene of Defence. Using the Gene Type matching the stat type would do 1 of 2 things.
1. Increase the chance of positive result in Cultivation of that stat.
2. Increase the current Cap Limit of a stat type.
Gene’s would be stackable, so 1 could use Vitality & Defence Gene potion to improve or increase those 2 stats.

Gold Chest V (Update to D12H we really need COG)- Raging Rhino inside like Oath is in GC IV.
Oath items instead of Destroyer items from D10H.
Adjust cost of transmuting Evil Spirit items, some of them cost as many Astral Essence as a Lv105 Red set item (Midsummer Night)
Evil spirit should be transmutable to Fire Dust with Astral Essence.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Suggestion] Have a suggestion? This is the place.

Hello,
As you know, hero cards are a sore issue with some players, many high level players wish they had RHC’s, those with full red teams wish they had Zodiac Hero Cards & now with the introduction of Chaos Hero Cards it wont be long before players are wanting full CHC teams. I suggest Advanced Transmutation of Hero Cards. Orange Hero Card II’s can be made into a RHC. RHC’s can be made into a ZHC & ZHC’s would be transmutable to CHC. The % for success would depend on the Tier of Card the player is try to transmute. I leave the exact calculations for the number of cards required, gold cost & chance of success to you. It would encourage players to recharge in order to advanced trans & I really think it would spark up some interest from players who’ve lost interest due to bad luck with heroes & would provide those who have no more use for RHC’s, a sense of progressing in-game when they feel they’ve hit a plateau. Already many players are guessing at hero rebirth as a logical introduction to CoG & I think this would complement CoG either with or without that update. Thanks.

Nice event & duration, good spread of ways to earn score & a bonus to recharge, thanks CoG – Not to put a damper on it but there are still many players unable to log in & enjoy this event, I hope everything possible is being done on CoG side to rectify the outstanding login issues.

COG, Theodin.s5 was able to log in this morning then was booted from cog & encountered the DNS / KG unavailable error from yesterday again, ever since. He has edited his dns cache & updated his flash player, with the result he can now log in to KG but still has a blank grey screen for cog even if he refreshes, his flash is the latest & all his caches are cleared, I cannot think of anything more to try on his side, please advise?

As you can see KG is back up but we are still unable to log into COG, constant m2-kongregate says you are not logged in. Timing is perfect considering we will miss the score event if it continues, please fix this as soon as possible?

Another epic, complete & utter disaster by CoG. You have lost sooo many customers & the few people playing are only prepared to do so on the free-play terms, who in their right mind would invest any real money in a product that operates like yours being run by clearly inept staff like yours? I, for one, will no longer pay for what you provide, its dysfuncional on its best day.

Topic: Call of Gods / Lies, all lies

Thanks so much for enabling the DK card to drop in the final days of the event, sadly for those of us that ran it 24/7 during the period it wasnt available it makes little difference. Yet again COG finds a way to anger & upset its paying client base. Last time for me, if you were an employee in my company I’d have fired you, I cannot justify paying your salaries by recharging when you blatantly lie & conduct yourselves in such a grossly unfair manner. M2 has players who have run less than 500 zombie kings & now have 2 DK cards while others who’ve worked non-stop have seeds & candies for 2 weeks of effort. Unacceptable & pathetic.
Can confirm 5 people over lvl 110 who have a DK cards each from boss, 3 OF THEM HAVE TWO CARDS FROM THE BOSS IN 2 DAYS… Theres something wrong with your “random” generator.
