You should report the ones that you get a virus from. I’ve not had great luck with them, but I’ve gotten close to 100 kreds so far in total from the free offers (edit – just went over my record. 81 from free offers over the life of my account). And that’s from the ones that are completely free… no trial payment, no credit card needed, just fill it out and get them. I will agree with your assessment that many don’t seem to work though.

Topic: Wartune / [Promotion] Gem Pack

Oh I fully agree that the pricing is set to leave leftovers so that more more more more occurs. But if they even it out, it’s going to go up, not down. (Which is the point I was making earlier)

As for the prices and the margins they make, well, I don’t know their maintenance costs, rent, electric and connectivity, personnel wages, advertising costs, and whatever other expenditures they might have. But I’m sure they’re not living on ramen, either.

But I can’t bring myself to agree that it’s abuse. The items bought are not mandatory to complete or compete (yes they help, but you can be successful without them, and there is no part of the game that is exclusive to cashers, but impossible to play the game without accessing), they don’t pretend that you have better odds of getting something based on how much you spend (the RNG giveth and the RNG taketh away), they give nice things to non-cashers as well (more stuff for cashers, you say? well, they are the ones paying the bills after all), and even non-cashers seem to get the same level of support.

Topic: Wartune / [Promotion] Gem Pack

capatheist, there’s no one here looking for free balens. And I couldn’t care less about overgoor’s English skills (they’re rather good for a secondary language). And so far, his lack of respect for anyone who disagrees with him is obvious even beyond language barriers. But the thing that he’s complaining about is that the deal isn’t good enough. It’s like going to the store to buy a $10 item, seeing it on sale for $9, then complaining that a sale should have it at $5. And not only that, but it’s something that can be easily obtained without spending money on it, just time.

As for the idea that the playerbase is shrinking, we have no way to know that. Just because a few high profile players may leave a server or two doesn’t mean that they haven’t been replaced with many more low profile players. And no, I’m not saying it happened, because I don’t claim to have access to those numbers.

It seems that (all too frequently lately) people are forgetting why this game is even here. Yes, perhaps the devs and mods want us to have a good time, but they’re here to pay the bills. This may be our entertainment, but it’s their income. And as for our best interests, if they can’t make the margins that they expect, then they are more likely to move on to the next project, and what’s gone is gone at that point.

@avandor Dude, i really dont care if ppl desagree or agree, i just wanna know is, why every person who questions the price is ridiculed? Arrogance, lack of humility perhaps, or maybe childish. Will say again, we just have to lose if we disagree with things that will help us, we gain nothing ridiculing people here.

Pot, meet kettle.
So far, if someone disagrees with you, they’re either kids

It’s okay for people to not agree with you. It’s also okay for a sale to be a small discount.

Thank u Avandor, yes, would be much much better, can u tell us who is u in wartune? Just to check if u have a high BR and if u like to be “milked”. Can someone say something resonable why is bad lower the prices? Because till now only idiots answer with idiot answers.

Actually, I’m low BR, low cash (practically 0), and really easy to find if you try. But I am a bit experienced in marketing. And I can tell you this. The average person is significantly more likely to buy something with a 9 at the end of the price than a 0. The perception of saving is higher, that’s the point I was (perhaps poorly) making. Unfortunately, I can see that anyone who disagrees with you is an idiot to you, so opening up any sort of conversation with anything except “Oh yes, you must be right!” is a futile endeavor. But a deal is a deal, even if they don’t hand everything to you for free.

As for your guildie who bought random packs without getting the marks or mount, RNG wins. You never know when someone will beat the odds.

If you don’t like 259, 1999, and 2599, then I’m sure with enough pressure they could be talked into 300, 2000, and 2600.

Better?

And also people fighting for a max level mine on map…
hello, what is the difference of gold generated between level 10 mine and level 9 mine?
80 gold per hour.
That makes a total of 960 gold difference for the whole 12 hours occupation.
Hello! you guys fighting just for 960 gold?
Make it 2 mines, 2 sessions a day, and that’s
merely 3840 gold.

What gets me is the people who will see a level 9 mine and an occupied level 9 mine, and go for the occupied one.
“Gee, we can both get gold, or I can get gold and stop someone else from getting it while they’re offline…”

Topic: Wartune / [Guilds] Guild Recruitment Thread

Unguilded
Server 11 – US East

Unguilded is for casual players who don’t think the game is life or death.

Guild Level: 7
Altar: Level 5
Skill Tower: Level 6 (all skills at same)
Guild Shop: Level 5
Guild Vault: Level 7
Guild Tree: Level 8

Requirements: I know this is a tough series of requirements… but you must play Wartune, and on Kongregate, and on Server 11. You have to be willing and able to be respectful of not only your own guild, but folks in general. And finally… you must join the guild to be a member. I know, I know… we’re just that demanding. While we don’t expect hardcore daily players, we do prefer that you at least pop in every couple of weeks or so. If we need the space for incoming members, the folks offline the longest will be the first removed in most cases.

To simplify: If you’re looking for a hardcore guild that’s going to be climbing the rankings… that’s not us. If you’re looking for somewhere to sit around for a while with no demands, then come on in and be Unguilded.

Eyes on the prize?
In response to some queries I’ve had on the matter, I have something to add. While we’re not forcing our way upward, we’re certainly not opposed to the idea of one day becoming a top 8 guild. One day, it just may happen. But that doesn’t mean that the heart of Unguilded will change. Number 1 or number 101 or anywhere in between, we remain who we are.

The easiest part is joining. Just apply. We have someone on just about all the time that can bring you in.

Topic: Wartune / Suggestions #3

I figure most of this has been suggested before. In fact, I would be rather surprised if any of this hasn’t, but here we go anyway…

Chat Ignore
A true and proper ignore function that goes across chat channels. Totally prevents you from seeing the ignored individual.

System Free Option
A settings option to hide system and info messages in certain channels. Necessary notifications, such as server shutdowns, could be made to bypass this.

Battlegrounds by Battle Rating
Perhaps it would make a more even battleground experience. Something similar could be done with tanks eventually, once some sort of rating system was determined.

Option for Expanded Assistant Guild Master Powers
I would like to allow certain functions that are GM only to be open to my Assistants without having to transfer leadership back and forth. For example- Summoning the Guild Tree and Recruit Link usage. Other GMs might like other options as well.

Customized Guild Ranks/titles
Just being able to change them from the current names, to go along with the flavor of the guild.

Gold storage
The ability to change gold to a stored item. So that it could be safely stored for large purchases / personal use. This would be especially useful for high end enchanting. Whether it could be made into an item that could be kept in inventory, given a space in a guild vault, or stored in some sort of bank function. Perhaps even with a small percentage fee to discourage whatever potential abuse this might open.

Topic: Wartune / [Promotion] Daily Expenditure Bonus

You pay good money to get balens. You get balens.

They give you a little something extra for free, then you say free stuff isn’t good enough. This is above and beyond the agreed upon price when you made the purchase, so how is free a ripoff?

Topic: Wartune / Wartune's Infinite Grind ( Think about it )

Aw, you were fun until you decided to move from trolling to speculative attacks on lifestyle. Now, barely interesting enough to respond to. But, to indulge you…

Truth does indeed always stand, however perception is what colors in the gaps of truth. What you perceive as uninteresting, I see as the only available escape for certain other things that don’t matter in the context of this forum. Real life is far more important, and I would never pick a video game over the real world, but… if I am going to be wasting time while more or less immobile anyway, no reason not to do it on this particular entertainment instead of one I find distasteful.

Batter up.

There is no reason to camp at low levels, get higher, work on 55 set (or 50), then on 60. Put excess of EXP in talents and you’ll be fine and more importantly, will be more useful in GB. Stop feeding your overgrown ego by killing poor newbs in BGs.

Thank you. I had posted something like that earlier, but deleted it because I felt it came off as too aggressive and snarky. This is a much better way of putting what I was trying to say.

Do a little research before you call someone a liar and look dumb for it. If you remove friends from kong, they still stay in your army.

Topic: Wartune / Protest against R2games greed (Class War Wagers)

So let me get this straight… part of your idea of sticking it to r2 is to mess with the tags on Kongregate. Which will not affect r2 at all, but may cause inconveniences for people who look for games to play using the tag system, but would have no interest in the game.

How is this effective?

Bah, it’s entertaining. If everyone stopped seeking entertainment, think how the world would change. No books, music, movies, games, etc.

If I’m to feel guilt over being entertained, at least it beats boredom.

Topic: Wartune / Must See TV

Old news. It’s been posted here before a couple of times, at least.

The short and simple is that these companies are not in the business to make all the players happy, they’re in the business to make money. And as long as they’re still turning hefty profits, they have no reason to change anything that they do. If you like it, and can afford to, give them money. If you disapprove, or can’t afford it, don’t give them money.

At least they let free players play.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / WR's

Originally posted by PoopDogg:

how about putting 2 WR’s up at once, both old ones, allowing people to join either one for the specific items from that raid? Make it so you can’t join both so higher players don’t get insane stat points.

Let’s take it another step…
Put up two different WRs at once, and each player can only join one. Then give each one has two unique items (one at a low damage level and one at top tier). Perhaps the low damage could be a familiar related to the raid, and the high end could be a piece of equipment. The equipment could be similar (identical?) in stats, but have dramatically different abilities. Then don’t make those special items available in future rotations. Similar ones, maybe, but not the same ones. Make the choice count.

Topic: Wartune / Magisters and your opinion on them

Strange. I don’t know if there are multiple people on the magister accounts, or if different people run the same magister names on different servers, but I’ve had only neutral or positive interactions with R2vet1 on s11.

Why are you telling us about server merging on Armor Games?

Maybe it’s a clue. A scavenger hunt of sorts. So now we go to the AG forums and see that they have posted Kabam’s mergers, so we go to Kabam’s forum to see that they posted the R2 mergers. Then finally we go to R2 to find ours.
