Topic: Galaxy Online / Dont draw Coms during Gumball event(rigged)

I find that using observation without recording it makes the conclusions somewhat worthless, because once you have the idea that doing X gives result Y, you are going to look for data that verifies that idea.

or, rather than me explain it, just read this: =)

But I do agree that it’s bad that IGG doesn’t just go out and state that they don’t alter probabilities during events ( if that is true )

Topic: Galaxy Online / Dont draw Coms during Gumball event(rigged)

Hello, I have never drawn anything during gumball, and of course I don’t know for sure how the game mechanics work in this area.

But since starting to play this game, I have heard so much superstition, about how to draw commanders, how to open boxes, how to collect daily quests, and so on.

Now, speaking from a statistical point of view, bad runs are fully normal, they are to be expected, if there is a 10% chance to get a divine, it doesn’t mean that you will get 5 divines in 50 draws.

It means that if you do an infinite amount of draws, the amount of divines will approach 10%. This is called the law of large numbers.

I hate IGG just as much as the next person, but let’s at least hate them for the right reasons, not because someone has a few bad draws.

I don’t think that they are hones about why they won’t fix this. It just doesn’t make any sense.

they are probably just too lazy to fix it, or maybe they are afraid that the yellow chat spam messages that they think makes people spend more money will get less attention if people can actually use the chat for conversations.

well, nogger also starts with an n, so I guess you mean the “i” word :p
but that kinda explains the kick and kill by pirates, I don’t know who did it, but whoever it was, respect.

well, I missed this pirate incident. but I think seal bought ares yesterday, and OP said a couple of days ago.

so, did this happend before or after seal liberated ares from you tyrants?
also, members of ares does now actually have protection, they might be in a sub-corp, but that’s not all bad, atleast they wont get attacked by BS and friends now.

and btw, what kind of name is “noggerdestroyer” ?

Thanks for your advice.
We are sorry to say that the advice is not adopted because the limation on letter is used to avoid the spam on chat. Thanks for understanding.

this must be the worst argument I’ve ever heard.
“Thanks for understanding.” really….

I don’t see how that changes things. He3 and ability are the factors in farming instances, not time. They could also easily start the instance go pick up some pizza, come back, and start another round.

i28 costs 100k helium and gives 500k helium 1/3rd of the time, so no, instances doesn’t cost helium, they give helium.
this “ability” you are talking about, you don’t lose that when doing instances right? so it’s not a resource spent to do instances.

Time is the only resource you actually use to farm…

you know, there is a reason that “time management” was the top tag before kong removed it, it’s because it is..

Topic: Galaxy Online / kongregate tags

but most of the time in the game is spent farming, and time is one of the main resources you need to manage.

ok, so I guess that you (kongregate) define farming and time management in another way, but if they were the top tags, doesn’t that imply that most people define those tags in another way than you(kong) does?

Topic: Galaxy Online / kongregate tags

what happened to the games kong tags?

“farm” and “time management” were the highest rated tags, and now they got -1000 points out of nowhere.

can igg set their own tags, or where did those -1000 points come from?

Topic: Galaxy Online / Quality Gifts for a Quality Game! (unlocked)

so far I have payed as much for this game as a console game costs in a physical store.

I don’t mind paying for my gaming, but I would like to get something in return, and no, I don’t mean more ROD’s or DFA’s, I mean IGG actually spending some of the money we give them into improving the game, not just figuring out more ways to get money.

Do something for the customers, and we’ll give better ratings, but trying to bribe us to hack kong’s rating system…
well..

Topic: Kongregate / MMOs Are Ruining Kongregate...

I just made a suggestion to add “Pay to Win” as a tag for games, having that tag would make an easy way to avoid those games, which seems to be what a lot of people here want to do.

please support the addition of a “Pay to Win” tag!

“Pay to Win” should be a topic, for those competitive games where the only way to compete is to be the player who pays the most.

Topic: Galaxy Online / how to raise rating..

I find it very entertaining that it is a post about how to raise the rating of the game, and instead of talking about what could be changed to make the game more enjoyable, it is about how to best bribe people to get the rating up…
