Topic: Shadowland Online / Lower Hades Cost!

Honestly, I think ALL the prices are outrageous.
From what I understand, it takes a medium-strength player a minimum of one day to get the cheapest item in the “Arena Shop”.
For a weaker player (one who would actually need a lower level item) it takes much longer…. I’ve been playing Test of Blades for several days now, and I don’t even have enough points to buy the cheapest item.
Realistically speaking, your prices are INSANE
So, I vote for lower prices on EVERYTHING, not just Hades equipment.

Thanks for getting back to us, zq. I also like CA. If there’s another game to replace it, that could be alright too, as long as it is WORKING CORRECTLY! We like CA because it WORKS.

Removing bugs would be better than removing working stuff.

I agree with ProspectorSam, we like the Crazy Adventure because there are no bugs or glitches. As long as the new game is working correctly, and it helps the player (without making the player spend diamonds) Then I’m all for it!

you are aware that your ally needs to own the cap in the other region, right?

I am aware of that, and my alliance did have the cap in the other region. I have no clue why the bug doesn’t work for me.

@billybob152 – It worked today again on my server – Rothus. And i know that members of 2 big alliances on my server do it every day for very long time.

Okay, I’m on Frost so that particular bug might not even be on my server. And also, I’m not even sure that anybody won the cap battle that day. Both these things could explain the issue. Thanks!

Hey, I’m responding mainly to tip #3, Either the developers fixed this bug, or mafk was wrong.
MY alliance lost the capital battle today and I went to the other region where we won, of course, I failed to collect.
I also failed to collect when I went back to the region where my alliance lost.
I’m not saying all of these tips are wrong, I’ve found them to be helpful, logical and well-thought-out, but this time it apparently didn’t work.

Um, sorry, I meant tip #4. Not #3.

Topic: Shadowland Online / GM recruitment for January and February,2013.

Well, I admit, 6 hours minimum is better than 9, but SERIOUSLY?!?!?!
Do you honestly think that there is one single player who spends 6 hours online trying to be a "peace keeper’ for in game chat?
I was considering applying, but having a minimum of 6 hours is WAY too much.
I suggest 3 hours at the maximum.

I am one of the players that agrees.
There have been far too many good suggestions that have been “noted” or “considered” or “submitted to the devs”
I’m getting sick of this stupidity.
Why do we even have a suggestions thread if they NEVER LISTEN?

Please let me know if anybody else is experiencing the same thing.

Dear billybob152, I have checked, my account has no such problem. :)

Quite common, happens to me on all equipment, but random which one or where. Sometimes doesn’t happen at all for days, other days happens all the time.

Buuut, its an insignificant bug compared to all the other things we have reported and requested…

Yes, I understand that it is insignificant, however it has become a nuisance.
I’ve personally given up hope that the devs might get off their backsides and do something for a change.
Although it would be nice if they started listening.
Maybe I should make it clearer to them.
To the DEVS: HEY! Guess what? Your players aren’t happy! Start doing something about it or your game is going to fail!

Topic: Shadowland Online / *** Suggestions ***

Hi, I’m going to suggest something.
But because of the apathy and laziness of the Devs, I sincerely doubt that my suggestion will be implemented.
It would be good to know how much my gold income is going increase by upgrading a dwelling.
I’ve noticed that there is no way to know EXACTLY how much your income is going to increase by upgrading a dwelling or finance hall. So I suggest that you place the current effect that the dwelling/finance hall has on levy income in the blank space underneath the description of the dwelling/finance hall.

Something like this : Your citizenry live here. Upgrading these dwellings increases the amount of gold you can collect.
-———> current income effect- 12095. Next- 13450.
That would be a REALLY nice feature, it would also help players figure out PRECISELY what effect each dwelling has on their income.

I’ve read your suggestions and opinions, and will try my best to communicate with the devs. We know that we have some drawbacks but we are always try our best to make the game better. :)

Your above comment is the first (that I have heard of) that has mentioned anything about “drawbacks”.
I really appreciate that you’ve mentioned that, and I also very much appreciate that you’re trying to make the game better in spite of the drawbacks.
Thanks for being honest.

If you’re giving out free diamonds I’ll be glad to accept, however I believe you didn’t error in not letting us know before hand, therefore, I don’t think compensation is needed.

On the main forums they made an announcement that instead of ending today the maidens were going to last until the next maintenance, after that announcement many players bought maidens with only a few hours left on the tree timer, when t


he trees were removed these players felt misled because obviously something was not as it had been said. I assume this compensation is in regards to that(now shown to be false/misleading) announcement.

Okay, I understand now.
Since I wasn’t one of the players who bought maidens I didn’t know about this.
Sorry!

That being out of the way, I do have another topic to bring up. The removal of the Christmas Trees in the “my items” section of the mall.
It is possible to gift the trees to other people, and it’s also possible to gift them to yourself.
Personally I have 26 completely useless Christmas Trees in my items.
I don’t know if that counts as bug abuse or not, I certainly hope it doesn’t because many of the players have gifted themselves Christmas Trees (including me).
Since the Trees are useless, and only taking up space, it would probably be wise to remove them.
Hope I’ve been of some help.

Topic: Shadowland Online / The UN-Lucky turning

I’ve played this game for a good long time, probably since early May of 2012.
I have NEVER gotten the 500 Cash Gift from lucky turning, it’s extremely rare that I get the 5 Cash Gift, and it’s nearly impossible to get the 1 day of VIP.

However, I get a couple thousand in gold about every other time I spin, the Prestige and Battle Achievements I get whenever I don’t get the gold, and the equipment items seem to be really popular because I get those way too often.

So, here’s my proposition to change the labeling on the Lucky Turning Small Pack.

Change the “Big odds of winning” to “you have a 95% chance of getting this item each time you spin”.

Change the “Medium Odds of winning” to "you have a good chance of getting this item, but you have an even bigger chance of getting the “Big Odds of winning”".

Change the “Small Odds of winning” to “You might get this item once a month if you’re a good player and follow all the rules”.

Change the “Slim Odds of Winning” to "You will not get this item EVER, no matter how long you’ve played, no matter how Lucky you are, you just WON’T get this item.

To the Developers: This is just the SMALL lucky turning package. I’ve seen players turn 40-50 times on one of the bigger packages and get 1-2 stones.
We’ve actually started calling it the UN-lucky turning.

So, I humbly suggest that you allow players to get something other than useless items and a little bit of gold or prestige when we spin.

I tried to fight against the first battle in the new sanc missions, A LEVEL 100 ENEMY. Needless to say, I lost.
If you’re going to have an event that only post crypters can partake in, please have the common sense to make it so that ONLY the post crypters can fight in it.

I’ve drawn the conclusion that the game won’t allow me to gain gold, and yet I can spend and donate as usual.

False alarm, it appears to have fixed itself, probably just an internet problem.
Sorry!

Usually not all CA items update the display of food and gold, so sometimes need to refresh after.
But hint, buy a BoG and fort that to waste gold instead of donating to alliance that probably already has way to much.

Thanks Cine, it looks like you’re correct. next time I’ll try refreshing before posting on the bug thread. :)

It would very nice if we could have a speed-up option on prayer, quite often I’ll spend quite a bit of BA to get 1 support.
And then I’ll have to wait quite a while to have a chance of getting more support, this should be rather simple to implement.

Dear gbaz69, thanks for your suggestions, I have noted them down and will submit them to the devs for their consideration.

Translation: Ignored as the many other suggestions….

In all seriousness… Some of these suggestion that come in are things that take very little time to implement and would vastly improve the game.

The rebalancing of classes doesn’t have to be something that takes days and days of thought… Rebalance it a tad every week until people stop complaining.

Putting requested things in the mall so that you can make more money I wonder why isn’t done instantly. Noone buys the frags, because it takes too many frags to recast. It has been suggested many times to rebalance this.

All the lvl 100s are constantly complaining stones are impossible to get by without paying. And with the latest hidden “change” in the spins it is near impossible paying also.

Fixing weird mall prices like the 500k gold being more expensive than the 200k gold is something that should have been fixed months ago. And it still isn’t possible to buy large quantities of gold outside the spin packages.

Fixing weird tooltips for the items in the mall so that people actually know what they are buying would also be something that should be done instantly. “Can obtain x gold Ingots and x coupons for valentines day”, suuure everyone can understand that this means you will buy x times 200k gold plus x spins in the darkness package… Or not.

Noone spins the upper level caves because they are way way way too expensive for little value.

Don’t “suggest” things to the “devs”. TELL them what is required!

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

As a GM on Frost, these points listed above are the main things people have been asking about for months. Please listen to your players and take the time to implement some of these wonderful ideas. Players are starting to lose hope and give up suggesting altogether, because nothing suggested is ever implemented.

I heartily agree, the apathy, laziness, and lack of discipline that the devs portray is disgusting (putting it politely).
I am sick of this, “do the minimum” mentality.
If you want to provide a “stunning game experience” for your players. maybe, just maybe it would be a good idea to start actually puting in a full days work and implement some of your players ideas.

Exactly! I was very disappointed that there was nothing for the non-diamond user, are you only going to reward the people who buy diamonds? Pumpkins were awesome, because they were free.
Give the free players a little something extra, it probably doesn’t have to be a whole lot, just a little something that’s FREE.

There seems to be a new censor system (one I am not very pleased with) it censors individual letters instead of actual words, I don’t know if this is a bug or if it’s purposeful, whatever it is needs fixed.
Examples: right is turned into ight, even some players names are censored Mosby is changed into Moy. This appears to be purposeful because the letters that get censored are S & B.
Please fix this soon, it is very un-enjoyable, and obviously not very well thought out.

Hi, I don’t know what happened, but for some reason Kongregate got shut down. for something like 2 days (or so).
Now, I lost 2 days worth of growth by this, I understand that it wasn’t your fault anymore than it was mine, however I would like to have my 40 days continuous log-in bonuses returned. That is all I ask.
Thanks.
