Topic: Clicker Heroes / Mercenaries Have a Bad Reputation

maybe they try to erradicate demigods that have been created by cheating methods before fixing them for good. I never altered the course of mercs by reloading… if they die I bury or revive them.

Maybe if merc had a “période de grâce” of 1 or 2 weeks before having any chance of dying would help get some past level 2? Still I dont see how some merc achievements could be done. Achievements should never rely on luck. That is my opinion.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Mercenaries Have a Bad Reputation

well i really hope so because my mercs are falling like flies right now. i lost 4 since the patch, and the last one was level 2. At that pace having 5 at any given time seems like a challenge.

Topic: Kongregate / Why kong rating system is bad, suggestions flawed and ranking biased

Hi. I’ve been a Kong user for many years now, and I don’t know why I waited this day to give you my opinion on your rating/suggestion system. Here are my thoughts.

I just tried out a defense game, which was one of the worst I’ve ever tried. Like many times I felt like rating a game, I stopped my motion when I saw this notice "Enjoying this game? Rate * to receive better game recommendations ". The reason is for me rather obvious: if I give 1/5 to that game, Kong will interpret that as me not liking that game and that I don’t like games which has the same tags, in that specific case defense, strategy, etc. Likewise, I’m not particularly found of idle games, but let’s say I really enjoy Clicker Heroes. If I give it a 5/5 rate, Kong will assume that I like all idle games. Rating should not be about anything else than our appreciation of the specific game we are rating. As it is right now, most suggestions I am getting and every predicted rating is off the track. I think many might be in the same boat as me.

I’ve also seen many games with a good rating having only negative comments on their wall. If you ask me, it is very possible that for the reason previously mentioned many player like me refrain from rating games. As a direct result, a bigger % of ratings are bound to be made by multiple accounts/bots boosting games ranking, which is biasing them. To minimize their impact you must have more real players ranking games.

My suggestion? Suggested games and predicted ratings should be based on games ratings with a variation calculated based upon our favorites and their tags. I have 145 favorites, you should know me (and my tastes) better than this by now…. and I would love to rank games without “suffering” the consequences that come along. I know I’ve said it already, but really, rating should not be about anything else than our appreciation of the specific game we are rating.

Hoping to see some changes soon on that matter,
Regards.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Clan Recruitment Thread

The leader of my previous guild left without assigning a new clan master and I was the last active member so I decided to join a new guild. For few days I kept monitoring this thread, and was tired that the only times i found a guild asking for players around my level, that the average of that guild was around 25% of my own hze, or the request was made by some colonel taking this game too seriously… so I decided to create my own guild.

My own stats
HZE: 2014 (pure idle, speed runs)
ID: 23.5 M +
On my own i get stuck on immortal 26 or 27 if i remember correctly. I just overkilled level 23.

My guild name is: FunnyBones
Prereqs:

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / freemium? really?

Azrgara said: “At least give the buyer a super-rare equip for Nate or something.”

It all comes down to luck. My Lumberjack is my char doing the most damage by far. For the same price, my Nate is useless. My lumberjack have 2 pieces of equipment, and 4 enchant points, while some of my other chars have no equipment yet. Statistically speaking, on each new equipment part I’ll get, the lumberjack has the same % of getting it as all other chars. No matter which super shiny equipment they give, flip a coin. Head you wont be happy, tail you will be sad. If the the coin lands on the edge, then you hit the jackpot.

If some say “300% is a lot, and I wont have it”, try to see it in perspective. You still can get an equipment in that slot that will give you what.. +200%? So overall, even if at first it gives 300%, that is not what you will end up with. The gold shiny thing increase the max possible damage by 100%. Grind few minutes, and move on.

If you buy the smallest amount of kreds you can the purchase cost 3$. Even less if you buy more than the minimal kreds package available. What do Game devs receive out of these 3$? 1$? maybe 2? Game devs can spend hundreds of hours to make the games you play, and it is not like they owe you anything. Why are you asking them to give you freely hundreds hours of work when you cannot even think of giving back few dollars (so maybe 10 to 20 minutes of your time)? Maybe you should play less and work more. If you think it pays that much, start making games.

So if few buy things and enable you to play for free, you still have the choice not to buy. We respect your choice, respect ours. It might look like a very hard reality call for spoiled kids… but you still get 99% of the fun for free. Believe me, when you will grow up, you will miss the good old time, because life is way more harsh than that. In real life, beside entertainment given by whining spoiled kids you wont get anything for free.

Did I say that loud? nahhh.. ;)
Cheers

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kings of the Realm BUGS - Official Thread

Most of the time I cannot see mines. When I see them, after few minutes they all disappear. If I have troops harvesting a mine when this happens, the amount of resources they hold also disappear. The only thing I can do to recall them is by clicking on the portrait of the hero. As I write these words, I see only 2 mines on my whole map, 1 of them I went to harvest earlier and wasn’t mining when they all disappeared.

Also earlier when I clicked on a mine I got the “something went wrong” message in loop; pressing on “ok”, right after the game finished reloading I got it instantly again and again. I had to refresh the page.

The mines don’t come back even when I refresh the page, but only randomly. They come and go as they want. Bad mines. Bad, bad mines. No dessert for you. Keeping my cake for myself. Next time think about it before you leave me. ;

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Clearance Sale quest issue

Yes I did (right after posting my message) and yes these are the stores required for the quest.

It was more to give feedback that I wrote; Since the quest asks to explore 3 stores (while there are only 2 in the sector) can be slightly misleading people to think that hardware and department stores count as well in that quest. After all, a department store definitely is a store and will be perceived as such by every new player who is looking for 3 stores where only 2 exist.

That being said, thanks for your time! I have to go now, I have zombie ribs in the oven..
Cheers! :)

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Clearance Sale quest issue

I have that quest (Riverside Heights) in which I have to explore 3 stores and kill 100 infected.
I (manually) explored a hardware store and (manually) explored a department store. I got back from both raids alive but still, the counters for this quest remains at 0/3 explored and 0/100 infected killed. I just noticed that there are also buildings named “store”, but… hardware stores and department stores don’t count as stores ?!?

Anyway, good game con!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [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

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?
