It would be nice if there were “Hot-Keys” in this game. You know, like hit the up and down arrow keys to hover over different rooms then enter to select, or hitting space to fish instead of clicking the fish button.

Hard to when people are hellbent on telling me wrong, telling me what I do and don’t remember, and all those goodies. As long as people keep starting problems, there won’t be an end. If you got a problem, or just want to flame someone for posting ideas and thoughts, go ahead, you’re in the right place.

3510, I appreciate your intelligent response, it was the only one by far that’s actually made any sense, but there are some problems, that I have repeated I do not know how many times now…
When someone with a particular personality and a specific mindset, looks a long post about everything you dislike about the game and why you think should be changed, it will most likely be viewed as complaining about distastes for the game.

How many times… It was not complaining. I explained how questing went for a certain area. I explained, being someone with a specific personality and mindset, that I thought items were dropping less compared to when the game was released in January, 2010.

There are people who react very negatively to complaining and may even take on a patronizing air, hence the “Gimme gimme gimme”. This doesn’t mean they are attacking you, like you imply with your strong defensive reaction, all it is is an expression if irritation not to different from your first post. My first post is not of irritation, but of things I thought should be changed in the game. There is nothing in my first post that would cause anyone to react or flame like they have. I’m sure you’ve made suggestions, but its different when people shoot them down, and insinuate the crap that people have said about my post.
Nevertheless when you make a post with some harsh phrasing, it will rile people up and begin a conflict. Please, tell me which part of my first post had rude phrasing in it.
I am not justifying other people being harsh in their posts, but when you are harsh and they are and your etc. it begins to compile and get kind of nasty, to the point where people are viewed as attacking even when they are trying to fix things. Again, tell me which part of my first post, is harsh… All I was doing was STATING OPINIONS, STUFF ABOUT THE GAME I FELT SHOULD BE CHANGED. Not shouting, I’m capping for emphasis. My post, deserved nothing of what’s been said.

Well then…
If you believe you are in no fault, what does it matter what other people say? Do you think the people that make changes in the game care if people bash you? No! This game is for suggestions, if they read and like what you have said, and they think it is worth the changes that it would require then they will make the changes. They know that there are angry people in the world, and they know that there are misunderstandings. And when you combine the two it often creates conflict. So whether or not you feel you have been rightly accused, if they believe the changes will boost game play, in a way that will increase their profits then they will make the changes.

On another note, Dream World is a game with optional expense. If there is something in the game that requires money, there is another way to do it free. So being a free game, with the only income being gem purchases, adds and such, there are very limited resources to spend the money to hire someone to spend time fixing problems. With things very few things will be done to change things unless it is viewed as profitable.

So if you are discontent with a possible lack of response to your requests, there are many other games you can to play instead.

Note: Every game you play will have problems too. Nobody is the same, making it impossible for anyone to be perfect in everyone’s eyes.

Wow, people in the kong forums…Obviously there are some people here in need of more int. Tell me exactly where I started complaining, calling this game a piece of crap saying its way to hard. All I did was mention things that are a pain in the ass, and you’re becoming one of them. You heard me the first time? Well you can’t read either. I said Mythic swords the first time, but mrwiggs thought I said MYSTIC swords… finish reading the WHOLE post before you start posting rude replies. When did I say I expect to get 10 level 70 drops? I would be fine with 1 level 70 drop, as long as its not a Mythic Sword. But seriously, now where did I say flood me and make me rich with level 70 drops? Yeah… Inventory is messed up, yeah I know. There is a workaround, yeah, I Know. You basically repeated what mrwiggs said. And isn’t that the developer’s job? to fix bugs, because we play this game and provide the developers with income?

The whole point of the term ‘soft capping’ refers to the point in time where pills will no longer drop from puzzles or treasures. Mystery Boxes have a 16% percent chance of dropping a pill. Players have had dry spells where they open 50 boxes but don’t find any pills. This is all part of the game. It’s just statistics, and you’re an outlier.

Explain why people level 80 and above are telling me they still go to their level area and hunt for pills? I’ve been told that 6 times by different people I’ve asked. I know MBs drop them, still haven’t found one… Its just statistics, and I’m an outlier? That doesn’t make sense.

When new expansions are released, the higher level players are basically doing what you are. They’ll take most (if not all) of the damage from Hells, and do more than 12 of them in a day. That is about 0% experience. 1% at most. The experience needed for leveling grows exponentially, which is unlike most games, but that’s just how Dream World works and has always worked. Players just need accept and get used to it.
Who wants to play a game that takes 2 years to level up? Exactly. One of the reasons why not many people play this game anymore. I’m only level 70 on this game, and even with double xp event, double xp gem purchase, guild xp boost of 80%, bankers guild 10%, still takes horrifically long to level up.

And this Halloween event! Wow, 6 sp refills in a row. Can’t express how useless those are… then my character on S2 at level 40 gets 3 ench pots in a row, next 2 are MBs with enc pots. My level 40 doesn’t need enchant pots when he levels up every other encounter. My level 70 though needs them, because it takes more than 2000 encounters to level up.

As similar as we are in some ways, in other ways people as individuals are often very different from other individuals, those differences, and different personality and ways of thinking cause all of the worlds political problems. From national level politics, to household politics, to forum arguments.

When someone with a particular personality and a specific mindset, looks at a long post about everything you dislike about the game and why you think should be changed, it will most likely be viewed as complaining about distastes for the game. There are people who react very negatively to complaining and may even take on a patronizing air, hence the “Gimme gimme gimme”. This doesn’t mean they are attacking you, like you imply with your strong defensive reaction, all it is is an expression if irritation not to different from your first post. There are several good definitions of complaining on http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/complain

I do agree with some of the suggestions you made. Nevertheless when you make a post with some harsh phrasing, it will rile people up and begin a conflict. I am not justifying other people being harsh in their posts, but when you are harsh and they are and your etc. it begins to compile and get kind of nasty, to the point where people are viewed as attacking even when they are trying to fix things.

P. S. I don’t have solutions for all your problems, but as far as the inventory jumble, you inventory needs to be entirely empty when you move things from the bank into it in an attempt to make them in a sensible order.

It would be cool for there to be a nice suit or a tuxedo in the hat shop, you know, to go along with the fedora and sunglasses. Make some sort of a “Godfather” gang-lord type penguin.

Or a suit, and sunglasses, but have an ear peace instead of the fedora. Then people could have a FBI, or Secret Service Pingy.

It would be good if there was a way to pay to complete quests, mostly aimed for people who want to finish all the quests, but can’t because they have a laggy computer or are playing on a laptop touch pad. the prices would be outrageous of course, something along the lines of 100k game currency to pass an easy one like shooting one target, and maybe 100 million game currency, for the very hard ones like getting a 50 combo on the math game

How about a game where there are snail burgers lined up at the top of the screen (maybe 5×10 burgers, more or less depending on the level). then the object of the game is to bounce a snail between the a board and the burgers, each time you hit one it disappears and you keep the burger instead of needing to cook it. Instead of levels a new row of burgers appears every so often and the snail speeds up and the span the board shrinks.

Fishing is very slow, because of this farming whales is a huge pain (even if you do have goldfish bait), maybe if there was some game based on of collecting goldfish, maybe something like a fish bowl in the penguin’s house then you get a net and swipe at the fish in the bowl and try to get them instead of the decorations and gravel at the bottom. this could be purchased at the store like the gambling games, then upgraded in ping’s house like the other decorations.

How about a swimming/fishing combo game? Something along the lines of, jumping the hole in the ice where you go fishing, then there are all of then different kind of fish that you can regularly get, accept you need to move around to get them, kind of like moving the bucket in that snail game. Then, so you can’t do that forever you need to not get killed by the sea leopard that comes while you are feeding on fish. I’m not sure what the best way to avoid the sea leopard would be, one could be to have it come along with the flow just like all of the fish and you need to avoid it, or it could tail you and you need to get speed boosts so it won’t get to you, another way would be to get caught by it often, but you need to enter key combinations to escape from it. I’m not sure if this would make getting hats to easy, but it might be good to have the map to the secret island, it is just a huge pain to get that from fishing, and even when I do I probably won’t get the hat.
This game could be accessed from the fishing mini-game, much like the snowman game is from the snail game.

Hey my computer is kind of slow and this game gets kind of glitchy so if there was a graphic setting that would be cool, and if there is a graphic setting it should be easier to access.
