Topic: Rise of Mythos / When do AH items end?

Yesterday at 4:17 I saw an item from a user in the AH that had 0 hours left (had just ticked to 0 hours). Problem is, the item was still in the AH at 5:21?

At that point I logged out. Got me wondering. Why did it end so late?

Why did this happen? Does the game bug out with the AH times? Or perhaps since there was several last minute bids the time is automatically extended?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / what happens if you leave a guild?

Not sure if this game is dieing or what going on…. but my guild seems a lot less active recently. They aren’t even in the top 20 anymore, some have left, and some do not log in as much anymore.

That got me wondering. What happens if someone leaves a guild or a guild is disbanded? Do each player lose all their guild upgrades?

so…. why not have option to go up against AI? Do devs even read these forums?

Much better then gonig against someone who has a horse, 3 sancs and 5 star cards… I am so sick and tired of this BS.

This thread pretty much has came down to one thing. Your skill is lacking so to justify you losing you blame it on higher levels(lol) and people who spend money. There are plenty of people out there who don’t spend anything on this game and do great in it. Even getting top 8 while being vip0. I can tell you are one of those players who doesn’t want to improve or is under the impression you can’t improve for w/e reason.

In the words of Tasy. “If I sucked at this game I would make excuses too.”

Errm…. not necessarily.
If it is above the min-bar (>800), he would be matched against player of similar “playing power”—shown by rating, and if he is really losing to people with vastly higher rarity cards and/or higher level consistently, that must mean that he have a higher rating than player of comparable level/card pool and thus he must be playing quite well.

That said, if someone is epic skilled at the game, if he is NOT matched with those p2w/high lvl, then he would grow indefinitely in rating and therefore claim the #1 spot even if he is weaker than many other players in the game. That would be stupid. So no, if you are being overmatched, take that as a compliment, it means you are doing well. (ofc, if you are overmatched in term of rating, that is usually random occurrence due to low population. nothing good out of that but it shouldn’t happen too often)

All I’m saying is he should just ask people for advice on his server. Telling everyone how your skills are fine and then losing 20 games is not the way to improve lol

My skills are fine. All those losses were vs higher level players. I do not know how I can make myself clearer… They have creatures, abilities, ruins, and equipment I do not have. If it was a fair match, the games would be closer.

I probably win something like 80% of my games when my opponent is within 2 levels of me or less. The other 20% is often because they spent money and have mounts, sanc and/or 5/6 star cards. Based on those numbers, its clear that your ‘lower level players should beat higher level players’ completely falls apart, because lower levels players rarely beat me.

[bold]This is the reason many players quit already. The game is unbalanced to the point that it looses attraction for casual players quickly. You might want to join us. Or the VIP club. Pick your choice.[/bold]

Yeah, I am getting there. I am a pretty calm person, but this game makes me lose my mind. Its stupid game and I am wasting my time going against losers who spent money on stuff that gives them an unfair advantage.

You definiteley need help, i played with my sis acc which is new before and got matched to a lvl 54 before while she was just lv.36 with only 1 epic cape and rest are non enchanted armor of destruction things and still won the battle.
Just some tips i usually do:
1. try to save ur removals/skill cards and only use them when NEEDED
2. Always keep 1 vigilance in hand
3. Dont play everything as soon as u can, sometimes its better to use them at the right moment

I already got a very good deck and very good strategy. Its good enough that I am able to beat higher level players sometimes while lower level players almost never beat me.

I lose because all my opponents are higher then me, there is only so much I can do.

Its just a bad game when your opponent could probably go auto and win with his 5 star cards, sanc and other better items.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / My PVP suggestions

pineappledog: I do a lot of extract and fuse. I do them every day for the quest. I have yet to see a single epic priest card (tho I have seen some epic monster cards). The 10k silver pack has also given me 0 epic priest cards (tho ive probably only purchased it about 15 times). I know I need sanc, but it just aint happening.

Syrupz: My problem with going up against higher level players is if lose 90% of the time. And its just not the level, its everything else (they have mounts and they have 5 star cards)

Think im just going to stop focusing on this game, its too broken. My plan is to go from about 2 hours a day to about 10m a day to just do the bare minimum. No more spending gold. Then hopefully in a few months or so if I want to get back into it they will have fixed the pvp stuff or at least fixed the activity so it does not account for 41% of the possible points you can get…

Topic: Rise of Mythos / My PVP suggestions

Not sure why everyone is saying its my playing style. I think a week ago my win ratio was 46%. Not great, but close to 50%. My issue yesterday was running into constant people who are much higher level then me.

My level is 46. And I played pvp about noon EST, 8 PM and midnight. Lots of different times.

Yesterday I ended up playing even 3 more games, won 2 of them (that guy I beat was also 3 levels higher then me, played him 3 times). So 23 games, and lvl 49 was lowest opponent I saw all day.

This issue is componded by the fact I hate PVP. I do not yet have the cards I need to play (no sanc, or 0 luck finding even a single epic priest card). So it makes the entire situation even more frustrating.

I just want this pvp to stop wasting my time and frustrating me.

Hotshot2k4 : Lol, take comfort into the fact that Ive been using this nick for about 15 years (since age of empires and BW).

ok, 20 games today, 20 loses. Only a single person was within 3 levels of me and the lowest I had any opponent was 23HP.

God, what stupid moronic game design.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / My PVP suggestions

Hotshot2012, if you really get 17 loses in a row then maybe you should look at what you can do to do better at pvp.

Well I played one more, so 18 games today, 18 loses. My last one was the closest one, I actually got him down to 23 HP. Granted some were instant FF against opponents I can’t beat.

Hotshot2012, if you really get 17 loses in a row then maybe you should look at what you can do to do better at pvp.

The solution is simple… have better equipment and cards. The same ive been blown out of the water by opponents, ive also done this to other people.

If you want AI wins then reroll.

reroll?
what is reroll? If there was a way to reset my rank to 0 id do it instantly.

2 should only apply to people who are below 800/400.[

Whatever the number is set at, I think it should be setup so people dont go on massive losing streaks looking for the measly 2 wins. I am at 810 points or so right now,and I could definitely benefit from an AI matches.

as for 3, it’s non-sense because it cannot possibly be determined. You could draw into nothing but nukes and opponent into their most frail of units. Matter of luck affects that outcome more than any other. And if game history could be tracked, it can be done intentionally.

There are ways it can be done. I have people who have runes, 5-10 levels higher, a mount, legendary (or godlike) cards. Other then a 3 fire dmg ruin, I got none of that. I am completely and utterly outmatched. Thats something the system should be able to easily detect and not match me against someone who could probably dig half his cards and still beat me.

Another frustrating aspect is I need these PVP games to get PVP rewards (I really need sanc) and these PVP matches are tied to 30+6+5= 41 daily activity, so without it I cant even get my 15 gold… The PVP is like a black hole on the game.

17 loses in a row… enough ‘fun’ for today. But hey, one was only 3 levels higher then me, that was kind of a close game….

Topic: Rise of Mythos / My PVP suggestions

I hate PVP, here are my simple suggestions making it more enjoyable

1# After 2 FF or loses in a row against an opponent you wont be matched up with him a third time.

2# After 5 loses in a row you are matched up against AI. Some people only do pvp for quest and arent interested in PVP due to lack of cards.

3# You are not matched up against opponents who can beat you without you even killing a single one of their cards.

conclusion: I am so sick and tired of wasting my time on PVP. It frustrates me that I got to go thru all that BS for the activity. Until its fixed I am done with spending gold for activity.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Brutally slow pvp search

Same server as always (cemetery).

I really like that idea I came up with earlier with the AI thing tho. I do not enjoy PvP, I only do it for quest, so the idea of having the option to go against an AI for quest reward after waiting a long time would resolve this.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Brutally slow pvp search

Why is the pvp search so brutally slow? I often wait over 300 seconds (5 minutes). Today I broke a record and waited over 1200 seconds (20 minutes) until I finally gave up searching. 99% of all my matches aren’t even that long.

I try sometimes in the afternoon, sometimes in the evening. The evening seems better, but not by much.

My score is only 285, so you would think there would be lots of option to find opponent. Some programmer really dropped the ball here. You would think they could at least give you the option to go vs an AI opponent after 10m of search so you can get your quest reward :\

And I have similar issues with my guild in 2v2. Sometimes take over 500 seconds?

Are there really so few people playing this game or is this sometime of programming snafu?

BTW I did a cookie delete without any luck.

If you leave your guild, do you lose all the research you did in your guild? If you don’t might be worth trying to leave my guild and rejoin it.

Its an annoying bug as I always miss out on the +6 guild activity every day.

How about some sort of in game alert about these downtimes are going to happen? Last time we had down time I lost my login streak due to having to go to sleep due to the extended delay. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying when there is no in game news/alerts section.
