Topic: Glean 2 / Frustrated. Can't figure out how to upgrade.

Totally agreeing with annethecat. If players cant figure out how within 1 or 2 hours, they leave. I’ve played a while, checked the ?, you have to click on everything to get a description that take too much time to read and don’t help UNDERSTAND the mechanic of the game. I THINK I’ve managed to do some research, and while they are far from being user friendly, I don’t understand what I did.

I think that
-the game has potential
-most players wont search through wikis to understand complex games.

Beside that, few other things drove me away; Out of fuel = death, the game is slow, and you often have to wait until the drill cools down. One basic physical fact: the cooler the environment, the faster the cool down should be… and no matter what depth you dig, the cool down always seems to take the same amount of time.

Give more tutorials, help popups and guidance to players, and you’ll get a lot more players.
Keep up the good work, you are in the good direction!

Topic: Cloudstone / Why is my inventory full?

For your information, dear Seizan

You bought healing potions? Ridiculous. There’s Healbomb for that.

I never sais that I bought any potions. Simply told my opinion about the fact that I never saw any items bought back for 0.1% of their sellable value.
Because obviously you won’t find even better gear before you hit 26. Ridiculous. Not to mention that at lower levels shop weapons are usually superior to ones you find anyway.

Oh, is the game that ridiculous? Thanks for letting me know.
All crafting materials are grindable, so you will be able to complete all quests. Ridiculous.

So, what you’re telling, if I got it right, is to sell quest items before I complete the quests. That sound so logic I wonder why didn’t I think about that myself.
Or you could just buy already existing inventory space. Doable imo

Yeah, pay to go around game limitations, for a game in which developpers don’t take into considerations player’s feedback? Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. (Wont happend again (no offense)) ;)
Me too. Luckily Cloudstone gives you enough free rubies from daily reward/PvP to buy that 50 or 60 inventory slots without spending a single cent on kreds. How awesome is that? Pretty awesome if you ask me. So awesome, in fact, that to this day Cloudstone remains the only game I actually spend Kreds on.

For that one, I must give you a point. When I came back to see this thread I stumbled upon a “Tips and Tricks” thread (that should be sticky) in which there is information about the daily bonus. Like Kazecuden said “You’d be surprised how many people don’t know this is here.” (because unlike the “Find your fortune” that has a countdown, nothing catch the eye on it. Unlucky maybe, I clicked on “mega bundle” first, and told myself “Well, another game who want peoples to buy stuff within the 5 first minutes of games.” The daily bonus Icon has no popup nor indications whatsoever being just beside the mega bundle, I never even tried to click.)
And here comes time for obligatory insults. Your empty threats are meaningless, because this game had very steady and dedicated playerbase before badgewhores and whiny kids like you came and they will remain long after you’re gone.

I beg your pardon sir, but I don’t see any insults (?) in the phrase “Game dev;do what you must or loose players.” I just saw too many games incitating players to buy (to name only few of them “Caesary”, or again “galaxy online”…know them?) that were running, took players cash, then without notice closed the server. I guess some players didn’t found funny to get a 404 error on a game in which they invested money into. The funniest thing about your last quote (that makes me believe that you’re a teenager) is the fact that you see insults everywhere, and assumed that I was a kid. Really, a kid? Even if I like that, stop flattering me. Randoms from the internet, you mean non pathetic peeps who has something else to do beside being
old timer (who) stayed not only for week or two, but for year.

Indeed friend, (insert random “your argument is invalid” picture here)

Topic: Cloudstone / Why is my inventory full?

I totally Agree.

I’m now stuck with 41/40 inventory. I see 6 different possibilities.
1: sell some rare potions for 5 gold (that cost 5 000 golds to buy!) ridiculous.
2: get rid of the only great gear that i got so far that will give me +33DPS and +22 discipline that i cannot use before level 26 (i’m level 24). ridiculous.
3: spend days (weeks) to farm xp at my home to use that weapon and get rid of the old one… to get stuck back with the same problem within next days. ridiculous.
4: I get rid of some valuable items knowing very well that I wont be able to make related quests. ridiculous.
5: The game designer modifies some parts of the game to make storage home possible and/or increase storage capacity (based on level maybe?). Doable imo.
6: I leave the game for good, and take the time to rate this game before I do.

I NEVER pay in a game in which we MUST pay to have a “normal” adventure without compromises, but I always pay when I believe the game “diserves it”. Being completelly stuck after only few days of play does not fall in the category “diserves it”.

Game dev; do what you must or loose players.
To new players; You’ll get a week or 2 of fun, then you’ll post here… and please do.

Topic: Cloudstone / Find your fortune... bug?

Do you gain xp in pvp? I was on my way out of my “home” and i just had a lvl up. The next time I tried entering a mission, I had the popup telling me what new equipment my leveling up gave me access to. Then went back to the menu, and I had to choose my mission again.

My guess is the bug could be triggered at levelling up.

Topic: Cloudstone / Find your fortune... bug?

I was ready to start it, clicked on it, then start, but after loading I ended up back to menu, with the timer back to 20:00:00 cooldown. Has it happened to anyone else? Or maybe when the timer comes to 0:00:00, we only have a % of chance to get into the find your fortune stage? Is it definitly a bug? Halp! xD

Hi there.

I live alone and don’t share my pc. I also dont log into my kong account from any other pc. I Don’t know when the change occured exactly,(within last few days i’d presume) but I just noticed that my avatar changed. Is it a kong issue?

Suggestion? Don’t do sweepstakes on kong unless the whole kong community can participate. A chance to win 20 000$ of free gas sweepstake in which only legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia can carticipate???

I’m Canadian.
If many currency (ie.: canadian dollars) are good enough to buy kreds, can someone explain to me (and all other kong members that are not legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia) why we should not be eligible?

Change your internet provider, go buy new pc, install another exploitation system, if it don’t work, contact the FBI and tell them internet don’t like you, because before you know it, you’ll start writing upside down.

I’d say that your trolling, or kong has a mind of its own and don’t cooperate anymore with players unable to align 6 words without doing 8 spelling mustakez.

Topic: Technical Support / music keep playing after closing game

Hi!

I had that problem few times before, if I remember well reloading the same game fixed the problem.

Yesterday I’ve tryed a zombie game, don’t remember which one. Putting my headphones today I realized that I have a zombie-like bgm music. I’ve tryed to reload that same game, but couldnt find it back. (too much zombie games here)
I now have 4 zombie game bgm musics playing rigth now.. They “stack”!
Although the ambiance is (really) awesome, I’d like to know if anyone:
1- has already experience that bug
2- has a way to defenitly correct this bug?

thank you :)

I could swear the things came back the slowest when I was still killing them one at a time :(
  • Not 100% sure about it (so anyone feel free to shout at me if i’m wrong) but I’m starting to understand some of the mechanics of the game my guess go as follow. When ants raise it seems that the max increase is 4 per second or so. I would say that there is a set % of chance that ants increase by 1 each ¼ of a second. (like lolmarket who has a 7% chance of updating each second. Sometimes it updates 3 times in 5 seconds, and remain still for 1 minute)…

    we all know that % are all but predictable ^^

    Regarding “another garden”…
    I unlock it, start breeding. Yay. I was almost as exited as a kid having to wait to midnigth to open christmass presents having to wait 6000 rewards to see the result. Since a speed up option was available, i spent many garden points to speed up research. with 3 seeds (#1,#26,#51) i bred 1/26, 1/51, 26/51. The result was each time one of the starting seeds. Is it me or I kind of miss the whole point?
    When I harvest another garden it gives nothing toward garden carreer? :o
    Is it me or, again, I kind of miss the whole point?
    feel like a 12 years old who just received sux and a t-shirt for x-max… :P

    Here my stats in BA.

    I have 250M pixels to spend to upgrade them, how would you spend them?
    here’S the weapon I use

    I’ve tryed much more powerfull weapons (like premium sword 400 at speed 9) but I still kill faster with my gun. Even against strong ennemies (i hit around 1-3 damages) i kill them faster with the gun due to fast speed. Any suggestions regarding that?

    edit: another question; for gardening carreer, is it better to stick to gray trees?

    it now much more expensive than upgrading a epic skill (i never upgrade my epic skill)
    so should i now focusing on epic skill or still unlocking the garden plot?
    or go to level up the career?(just LV23fighter LV20advanture and LV22button

    green coin:
    i have a max boost for 850 and minboost for 350
    so i should continue to upgrade my boost or use all green coin to play lol?

    unlocking 18th garden slot cost 3m? much more than epic? don’t think so..^^
    You prolly meant 300m. Well, maybe if you do a lot of gardening you should try to get your carreer to 100% as the bonus will become permanent. If you do, fully upgrading the garden sounds like a priority. The auto harvets card could help a lot. If you iddle a lot, if I were you, i would raise some epics between lvl5 to 10 for double progress, boost charger and money mastery.

    Green coins: If you iddle a lot, I would say to priorize minimum boost. If you anti iddle, priorize the max boost. Also take consideration of what you do iddling.
    Either way, my opinion is that it is always good to keep some GC to be able to get some cheap gems as they are available.

    It “increase your reward” because you get what you stole + usual loots, but I’m pretty sure you don’t increase loots.

    I tried that but I couldn’t find anything.

    When you start a new game, quit and come back, does the game start back where you left? If you reboot, does the game start back where you left? Is there any issue regarding hidden files with Debian? Is there a hidden file concept within Debian? Can you search an hidden file within it? Do you have a folder Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\?

    One question for me today
    In arcade, the “Get your priza” button, it says that I got 25% of par (+62 BC), but I played 3 games of mindsweeper scoring between 70 & 75% of par, and few games of whack a kreg and I got up to 52% of todays par. Where did the 25% of par came from? Lowest score today?

    Help? is there really any ‘LolMarket Guide For Dummies’ kinda thing we got going on in this forum? because if not there should me

    2- Values “should” be ordered. So with this example, you see that your lvl6 gems were overvalued. Lvl 7 to 10 are “upside down” giving you a good guess that lvl 7 & 8 are over valued, while lvl9 & 10 seems to be under valued. With this list, I’d buy lvl1, lvl5, lvl10, maybe lvl9. the demand as also to be taken in consideration. Defenitly time to sell lvl4 & lvl7 gems (unless demand is still positive, of course).
    Yes there are a lot of user guide, I gave the link in my last post (that you tried to quote, in the #4). There is also a “forum user guide” that you should take a look at: When you put back a part of someone else’s post, youi see the name of the writer, and the quote itself is also a link to the original post.

    Nothing happens if you close the windows. You’ll start where you left next time you start the game. You have to keave the game running to progress.

    1- A good answer was 2 posts up (by fistoz): trees give BC as well. 1BC/min/plot with gray trees.
    2- Values “should” be ordered. lvl1 gems costing less than lvl2 gems, lvl2 less than lvl3, etc. seek out for gems that seems under valued and buy them. you can sell them a day or 2 later is values came down afterward. You can a)buy when they are in a down peek, or b)when the demand is high.
    the a) method: control many times down before buying, and control few tiimes up before selling. You can buy many different gem grades at the same time and stack up to sell later.
    the b) method: Since you always have a starting sell value a set% lower than the price you bought, it’s easy to gain back lets say a 80 coin value for lvl1 gems if the demand is +20. More risky to use this method for higher grade gems. Watch out for the value if you do, if it’s high refrain yourself, or you can get stuck with them if the market “crashes”. The more profit you’ll make, the more gems you’ll be able to buy of each. With practice and a little bit of luck, you can get great amounts of GC.
    3- read cards carefully. increses energy income to summon monsters/effects. practice, practice. eventually tou’ll master it. :)
    4- look in this forum for some awesome user guides made by players. very usefull tips are available for each games. seek, seek ;)
    5- no. license make epic upgrades available, but each epic level costs start from 50M to 200M to give a 1% chance to get bonus to various things when a reward is claimed. Prices raise at each level of course
    6- carreers are also expensive to activate, make sure you optimize their activation time. I havn’T started careers yet and i’m lvl1878. I upgrade epics first, but maybe someone would recommend otherwise…



    my question of the day
    If I activate a card at 22:00 hours, will it last only for 2 hours?

    I try to get few more red coins, I’m really not a stadium fan but since there is a lot or achievements related to it, I want to get few. In single race, I stated and used to get it done in around 12s. With adventures i got many stadium tockens. I didn’t upgrade that much, i got few speed & dash bonus. My stats are now 20 max speed and 5 dash. The thing is that now, even though I’m not that fast, I always stumble into at least one blue boxe. Overall, my average time increased by 2 seconds :(
    How on earth do you get the 9sec lap achievement? By luck jumping randomly?

    anti iddling will defenitly help, but many other things will also: ants reduction (minimize boost depletion over time), minimum boost & maximum available boost, amongst others. Don’t forget one thing though, the amount of coins you earn will grow overtime as you upgrade. After one day iddling, I got over 600M coins, and could afford 2 epics. Not far back I had to cumulate for more that one day to purchase one, 1 week or 2 ago. I’m level 1601 rigth now. I wanted tree related achievements, so like Neptune I already have 18 garden slots, but no epics maxed yet though. Make the choices that suit your game style, and everything will come in time ;)

    With lolmarket i manage to get 6MIL green coins to buy the extension of progress bars in few days without any card. (thinking afterward maybe i should have bought min boost with it, but since i play a lot to FCG and always forget to keep mooving my mouse, I often claimed my rewards at the pace of one per 10 seconds anti iddling)

    my question of the day
    Someone has already used Demand Master card? what kind of green coin income should i expect from it? Do demands keep moving from +1 to +20 randomly when you have gems? is it always maxed out? do demands go from +20 to -20 instantly when you sell gems? do you refrain from using market control with the card activated?
