Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Abbadon suggestion

I know I’m a little too late to write this, but just wanted devs to know I quit the game to this tweek. Game balance is appreciated, but I’m not interested grinding all the way to get another Tier 3 hero and have it likely tweaked again. If you were planning on unrolling new Tier 3 hero tweeks, please give back the gems people purchased with them and let them spend them on a hero again. Or give 1/2 credit to buy another hero if your t3 hero gets vamped. So much for loyalty.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Abaddon Dark recruitement ability update

i love how 1 of his 3 abilities is completely negated by the other 20HP+ LVL 3 hero.. I just really wish i had a 1 time choice to switch my level 3 hero when the devs tweek level 3’s. Or give me 1/2 the credits of hero so I can spend again.

Great to see devs trying to balance the game, but at the same time, this game is too much grinding for me to enjoy anymore (and I dont want to spend another 100 gems or 1M).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] GRINDING POLL

(admin make poll. Delete post if need be.)
1. Grind away, I need the cards and don’t/can’t spend money
2. I’m having fun playing, so grinding doesn’t bother me.
3. I love unlockables/grinding to win stuff
4. I’m ok with grinding for cards as long as the payout or grinding is reasonable
5. Grinding to win cards bothers/revolts me

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Energy. A rework, chat and reasoning.

On another note, I just want to point out that despite I’m a very competitive player, I don’t enjoy competing in the current formats or any format that is based on who logs the most = top rated. As like any game, the more you play, the more strategic advantage you have as you become accustomed to what’s thrown at you.

Now, real PVP will release soon and this SHOULD help significantly as I would hope you have to defeat those top players and not the top player’s AI deck. However, this is still favoring those who play the most because those players have bigger collections = bigger advantages.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Energy. A rework, chat and reasoning.

I loathe logging in every X amount of hours to play. I don’t mind grinding in the beginning to grab the core card set, but at the same time, it’s not fun. The best games don’t make ‘grinding’ feel like grinding. So, in order to this you need to not make competitive play so heavily based on collection size. Sure, you can have some formats that support that but I’ve found that even Bronze (1) meant I needed to collect a lot and (2) the Bronze environment got really stale quickly once you saw the same deck over and over.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Suggestions Thread

I’m not saying it’s not possible to make decks around it, but MTG’s “flying” wasn’t meant to build decks around the ability vs here. 1 turn flying is an awkward idea for me as I don’t own Wilorym nor can justify ‘slow cards’ unless it’s a small deck theme. So, when I say normal, I mean not having to build a deck theme (or having a hero’s ability based on it). Just like in MTG, you wouldn’t build a trample deck or gosh I don’t know any other value, but great players use cards that are robust.

Yeah, I’m not saying there aren’t combos out there with flying, but it just doesn’t feel like a “normal ability”.

Two more AI problems, that are fundamental to winning at this game:
(1) it never discards for mana
(2) it never removes a corpse for 2 mana.

It might be a tricky for # 2, but there are many life threatening events that don’t go resolved. I’m sure a small string that states if Power =< 4 & mana is possible(with discarding) to remove + summon creature Power => OP monster’s HP

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] About Skybreaker Giant

All of the above.. just nothing that is a “destroy minion”. Torment just makes it undead, you have to remove the “can’t be destroyed instantly” ability.

6. Fae’s charm (works)
7. Abondon’s ability to steal creature (works)

However, I would be curious if you could cast (8)dark pact on him since he is an ally, but I suspect you can’t even though its your ally.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Suggestions Thread

Some coding things i hate:
(1) how abadonn is really not a 50/50. You can tell if he will resurrect or not if AI plays dead. + He only ever resurrects once, than it’s 0%.
(2) why when abadonn picks a random creature, it doesn’t just auto pick the creature with highest casting cost or power.
(3)
Non-code
(1) why not make flying creatures get +1 against non-flying. Flying seems kinda silly otherwise.
(2) why are there not more promotional cards that help. Only a couple are play-able. At least make weaken 1 to cast, not 3.

BTW, i really feel strongly in saying that although Abadonn may have a true 50% chance the first time to resurrect, it feels like a 100% time that it will fail the second time. Please rewrite his ability if you don’t on changing the wording or the statistics.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Suggestions Thread

Simple version: Make all PVP matches to favor the AI more.
-———————
Suggested paths:
(1) +2-10HP to hero (based on player rating or similar, depending upon game mode)
(2) Same like #1, AI starts with more mana
(3) AI ALWAYS goes first.
-—————-
Make any/all combinations of 1-3, just like how “hard” mode is, the current PVP environment is not balanced to fight against an AI.

Now this is a million dollar question, isn’t it?

Sorry to put the cart before the horse. It’s clear you need PVP as a stepping stone to tournaments. Sealed deck/booster draft tournaments are really what would tingle my spine. For the current environment, what I might recommend is (in certain game modes) filter out certain types of cards.

EX: Each month cycles something new: (1) Bronze – No Elememental or Unaligned Heroes. (2) Bronze – no cards 2 or under allowed. (3) Bronze – Hero’s have no abilities. (4) Bronze – no spells allowed. To simplify this, you could just create a new format that is a “monthly” format. This would help keep the game fresh while still strategic.

I’m not even sure the game needs PVP it at this point. If anything, I will just be more annoyed at my opponent’s bigger and better card pool. Aside of maybe bronze, the only thing I am really interested to see come out is “booster draft” or “sealed deck” tournaments. I’ve been grinding to the point of owning majority of gold and got a good hero. What do I really have to look forward to in playing any of the game modes? All game modes are favoring the obessed player who logs in the most and not the most strategic, so what’s the point… Please devs, let’s bring more strategy back in.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Randomness and Chance abilities - Why, oh god, why? :)

I was never a fan of random aspects in any strategy game, however, like OP stated, it’s all calculable. Even without any “luck” cards, you are playing a “card game”. By that alone, your accepting that you will “randomly be drawing” cards. Just like in almost any sport, there is always a chance to lose/win. In this game, drawing the right card at the right time means win or lose. The same goes for in some situations if the card deals 2 damage or 1 or 0, which may or may not result in different outcomes. It’s all probabilities like other poster said, if you want to ignore your odds, than don’t complain about the results.

When real PVP comes out, I would like to see the rating system be seperate from vs AI. I’m not a fan of the current rating system.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Suggestions Thread

Please please make it so when i click on the card it defends. It’s much bigger hastle to have to scroll over and click the “defend” button. You can make the over function be both click on defend or on card. Their is no reason it shouldn’t be auto defaulting to that.

Additionally, the “discard” card button is a bit foreign, wish it had better way to interact, but not sure exactly. Due to the fact most noobs won’t realize discarding cards = 1 mana, I highly reccomend making accidentally over-size hand card discards an automatic +1 mana. Would also help for lazy players too who are just trying to cycle cards and too lazy to keep discarding 1 by 1.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Where to spend the last 40-45 Gems

I own one T3 hero. Got most of gold cards, so it looks down to:
(1) random Eve
(2) uncommon single
(3) 2-3 common singles?
(4) 1-2x energy upgrades
-—————————
The only small advantage for the pack over the single is it would help me in epic mode, however, with my luck I’m relying on pulling a mediocre rare for sure.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Tier 3 heroes comparison

Just use wiki: http://wiki.kingdomsccg.com/?q=wiki_heroes#

I’ve been struggling hard at not picking Bahamut as my first T3. I know it’s going to be very boring as him, nor am I really interested playing him either, but simply because it looks like the best AI hero to use on defense. T2/3 vs T3, who are the most challenging AI’s?

Totally understand why others want more energy, but this is a drawback to me. You need to pay me to spend more time playing games, not the other way around.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] t3 heroes overview and discussion

Any update on how to get the T2 Unaligned? Sorry if I mis-spoke, but this is the one ive seen someone have in PVP. I’m guessing it’s unlocked somehow, best guess would be buying all T2 heroes..but no clue.
