Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / Old theme of tdp4

I’m just sick of all the explosive spamming, no skill involved whatsoever, just somebody sitting in the same spot shooting nonstop explosives at a choke point forever.

To be honest, the most enjoyable part of the game for me was early on with colts and calicos.

Sure, I still stomp now, but it’s not fun anymore. It would be cool if you could “freeze” your account and just stick at one point in time, not gaining any exp, gold, or cash (but still have it all stockpiled so that if you ever wanted to level up, you could unfreeze or whatever and get it all back.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / new game modes

Campaign would take too much work. Yes campaigns are fun, but I would much rather see that work go into something with more replay value, such as more multiplayer content.

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / new game mode

FFA and Team Elimination would be fun, but the problem is that it would further encourage the already big problem of prone camping. Prone camping gives people a significant advantage against the person who moves to kill them. You can’t say “well then you should prone camp too”. If everybody prone camps, then the game would never end. Prone camping is a selfish abuse of the game. It’s okay if you do it strategically, in something like CTF, but prone camping in a game like deathmatch or elimination just isn’t right IMO.

Next thing is its unfair all the buyers and the other people for example you see people with too powerful guns a good solution would be you can disable guns or arts on regular matches.This raps it up!

Lol, you think it takes more skill to make a game for a console because “anyone can make a game on computer” eh?

What do you think people use to make console games? They don’t use the PS3, they don’t use the XBOX 360. Writing programs, creating 3D models, drawing textures, it’s all done on a desktop, not a console. Computer games aren’t any worse than console games.

Then again, it’s pretty obvious you’re just one of those idiots who doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about anyway. You’re just bragging about whatever you think is “cool”.

So much for “We don’t make games to make money, we make money to make games”

Yeah, right… You’ve proved time and time again, and this confirms it: You make games to make money.

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

I know this has been moaned and groaned about for ages, but it’s still a problem, and it really needs to be addressed.

The heroes are not balanced at all. Towards level 100, they start to balance out a little bit more, but in the meantime they’re terribly balanced, which discourages most people from ever reaching level 100.

You need to work on the balance; stop putting it off.

The main cause of this unbalance is heroes who have high-damage abilities that start out as single-target, and then hit 5 targets. Such abilities need to have an amount of damage reduction appropriate to the amount of targets hit, otherwise they’re dealing more damage per target, to all 5 targets, than other abilities that don’t even hit all targets.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Army - Hero Follies

I’ve noticed many aspects of the game clearly show that your “armies” are really operating as single heroes, with word changes and extra images for the sake of pretending you’re fighting a war.

I’ll continue adding things below as other people mention them. So far, thanks to orrbit for his comment.

If each army is composed of troops, some of those troops die, and a “healer” restores the full capacity of the army… wouldn’t that make the healer more of a necromancer?

When one person misses, everyone misses?

One person in the army shoots an arrow dealing damage based on how many people are in his army, while the rest of the troops in his army watch?

When you find one item, all 5,000 troops in your army are suddenly equipping it, and as you gain more troops, they conveniently find more of the item as well, while you still don’t have enough of the items to give to two armies of 1,000 troops?

When your army gains troops, all of your troops, including the new troops, become more experienced, are promoted, and become stronger?

All of your melee troops manage to charge into an enemy army, kill thousands of their troops, and not a single one of your troops is lost in the process, until they attack and kill thousands of your troops, while your troops suddenly are unable to kill any of them?

Troops from the barracks are able to suddenly master the skills of any hero the moment they are recruited into any possible army, whether he’s fighting with any sort of magic, a bow, or whatever melee weapon?

Whether you’re fortifying items for an army of 300 troops, or an army of 9,000 troops, the blacksmith still takes the same amount of time?

Topic: TDP4 Team Battle / LGM OR WA2000?

Depends, really. LGM will be effective in more situations, and much easier to use, with a bigger clip.

The WA2000 is great if you’re skillful enough to pull off good shots to quickly kill prone campers, and also has as much damage per second as a Barret .50-caliber; the WA2000 will be effective against high-level players.

Unfortunately, I was winning a bunch of tournaments grinding gold, and bought a WA2000 at level 10, as soon as I had the stats for it, and found that the high damage of it went to waste against weaker targets, and the higher fire rate of other, weaker guns was more useful against low-level players (But I still love the accuracy of the WA2000, and once I got used to it, I’ve been doing great with it).

In the end I’d have to say that if you’re below level 20, the LGM will definitely be more useful, and after level 20, the LGM and WA are about equal.

I think it’s about time different attacks and abilities start getting different and more relevant effects. Watching combat would be much more interesting that way.

Topic: Kongregate Labs / [Backyard Monsters] People Claiming: "Fomor sucks"

Bottom of the line, for people who argue without reason: Air/Ground is mostly balanced out late-game. Arguing about what champion you like the most is pointless. People who claim that any particular champion sucks, actually simply suck at using that particular champion.

However splash is a bit OP, it causes nearly every monster in the game to be useless late-game. IMO Splash needs to have a bit of damage reduction based on the amount of monsters within its radius. I actually formula for it, and posted it on Kixeye. Nobody seemed to understand what the formula meant, though…

meh, teras/Daves, they do the same thing, and TIO, seeing from your description your targets must be noobs, teras don’t work well on bases with maxed Rgs

You’ve obviously never maxed out terras and used them with a level 6 fomor’s buff, they do much more DPS than daves (including ricochets)

I have maxed rico with maxed teras…they ain’t that good :P gets killed too fast….never tryed with fomor though :P will do right now

Fomor’s buff makes a massive different to their health and attack speed, in addition to, with a fomor flying, it allows you to have your entire army in the air, causing rail guns, lasers, and cannons to become obsolete. That eliminates half of the person’s towers, and possibly their bunkers, and also possibly their champion, are all suddenly useless against your army. Additionally, maxed terratorn have the health of crabatrons, which is pretty great with a fomor’s armor buff.

Terratorn, 700 damage per shot maxed (including ricochets, about 1300 damage per shot), 70 housing, and 60% better attack speed from a fomor’s buff. That means as much DPS as a non-buffed rocket dave, but with much less housing cost, and a much larger army.

dvdwen, I don’t see why you’re still talking shit just because on my first account I was a member of some alliance that you don’t like a long ass time ago, when that alliance doesn’t even exist. I joined that alliance the first day that I started playing. Idiots like you still call me a “noob” just because of that, when you’re not any better.

Lol, got in a bit of an argument in chat earlier. For whatever reason, everybody in the chat thought that the fomor sucked, except for me. They all then insisted that I was a noob because I used a fomor. Apparently only noobs are signed into kongregate at 8 AM.

Figured I’d post this thread for the amusement of people who may log in during the future.

formor and drull i like the best. btw is the account an alt of backyardinferno?

Yes, TLI0Inferno is me, but this is the alt. Dvdwen was quick to answer your question incorrectly.

The funniest thing about that argument earlier was that everybody speaking was a Facepoop Noob bragging about their FB yards and insisting that all of the “pros on facebook” know that drull is better and fomor sucks.

My opinion: Fomor kicks ass. Drull is good for farming resources, but not against any good player’s base. Gorgo sucks less at defense than the other two champions, but none of them are useful for defense anyway, as a good player will bait them.

Because you’re placing requirements for members that you yourself cannot even meet.

I am far above the requirements that you set, and I could handle anything you threw at me. I left because I don’t like you placing these requirements for other members. If you want a strong alliance of only higher level players, then you need to make yourself strong enough to deserve to lead it.

,…….Wow…Im hurt,That wounded me

My purpose is not to offend you, my purpose is to cause you to either raise yourself to meet your standards, or lower your standards to meet yourself.

For the last time,I don’t care if i meet the requirements or not,i only raised the requirements to slow the flow of members down,give me and the members a break,Thats all

If you want to have less members, and you want to ensure that your members are good, then do the following:

Have a level 30 requirement, and tough yard checks.

Notify your members of these requirements.

After one week, any members who are below level 30 or have yards that do not pass evaluation, would be removed.

Future recruits also would have to be level 30+ and pass tough yard evaluations.

But at the moment, with standards higher than you yourself even meet, you simply look hypocritical.
