Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / Patchnotes OBT v1.3.17

I thought there were Are you Sure confirmation boxes added? I just clicked on Upgrade and since the Gem upgrade appears in the same position a lag forced me to spend 7 gems upgrading a friken Unicorn to level 6.

The bits I find most interesting is the “No melee penalty” but initiative 1. Decent attack but still at the mercy of fast legendaries like Champ, Druid, AM and Demo

What should I do with the Champion set per week prize. Already got another :(

Every competition you complain about the prizes, competition rules or time zones – while you have enough time to get 10x the amount of points of most of the players from Kong, where the majority of us will never be able to obtain Champion Items.

And just for fun, since you play on Facebook, you log in to Kong to let all the Kong players just how you have everything and the prizes are pointless for you. I´ll let everyone else make up their own mind as to the reasons for this need for glorification and recognition.

this is the kind of contest in which everyone participates …. too bad they’re always on weekends. Players who have a family, or for other reasons can not play at the weekend are always out.

I agree. One reason I liked the old Lucky Wednesdays is that it was midweek. The weekends I like to actually go out and see the sun and real people than stay in the corner of a dark room for 48 hours.

Thanks. The reward for the whole weekend staying at home to play KBL are 50 fireballs and 40 polar bears. Hope the next reward will be better.

So if you are not happy with the prize – why did you play the whole weekend?

Its quite easy as you can face upto your lv + 7. So a level 8 can face upto lv 15. And as I have mentioned there are multiple level 14 players with full champ gear. I know when I was level 12 I used to face full champ gear players. And at low levels, 170% unit difference (especially for legendaries) makes a big difference between still having an army left after the first round.

1) Gear Limit: You can’t craft gear until Level X, should not be able to wear gear until level X-5. This in particular is making the game difficult for new players as money time aura users (I must admit I did this for a while to prevent being caught without a full stack of my favourite legendary) with full champ gear (I can’t afford that) will destroy a new user in 2 rounds.
Champ gear does not belong at low levels because the +X leadership is disproportionate (can be up to 180% increase of units + commander/royal aura)

2) Champ gear should give +% not +X number of leadership as that means the higher the level the less effective they are. Which defeats the point of them being “Champions Gear”. At the moment they are just “Poser Gear” because you find users abusing this loop hole to destroy players that match to their low level (lv 21 v lv 14 Champ Gea ch
3) Even though as I said, I used time aura, this gets abused and means people at the top of the pvp table are not the high level players which seems contridictory. Time aura should reduce a percent less than 100% so it can not be abused forever (maybe 50% reduction of experience

4) different pvp tournaments: e.g. daily Champion competion for no reward except some materials and a cool icon for the day that says you rule. Would be played by choosing pvp→ Daily Champ and any battles between a 24hr period will be calculated. Better yet opponents are only selected from this pool and the points won = X*(1 + ((Opponent total day wins – Your total day wins )/total wins of highest you/opponent)). That way you get more points for better tougher opponents.

Looks like they have different result for each platform. I play on FB and got 160 and 108 point in the 1st and 2nd stage (Lv 29+). Still don’t have enough point to get Fireballs for the 4 best results.

The fireballs is for across all platforms, the other prize (in this case royal aura) is per platform. I’ve never won the fireball prize even when I had over 160 points once because level hogs like Flash to Fury score insane amounts at lv14 and full champ gear

It is error. I took part in both stages. I coudn’t take 0 points in the 2nd stage.

I must agree with a_steb. I saw a_steb online Sunday and his PVP had gone up a bit so he must have registered some victories.

Plus, as Mambu mentioned the first stage scores are incorrect for me even though it is not relevant to position, as I noted each victory/loss/etc.. and the total should have been nearer 78 not 51 – unless when the one time KBL disconnected on me I now loss -10 points (but still that is 68 not 51)

Yes I had an error to my formula, but the answer Nival gave is also wrong!
You need 12 champs to kill 3 polar bears 100% of the time.

So the correct answer is 3/7/12

hmm, I must have miscounted originally because I had 3/7/13

We can’t promise anything in regards to the chevrons and other materials, but we’ll definitely discuss that.
As for the disconnects and runaways; don’t you think that if players with strong army got some benefits from their opponents’ escapes that would only result in they becoming stronger and stronger?

I understand that and thats true, the point I want to make is that you gain nothing and in fact lose by not recovering your stamina point if an opponent runs away because you managed to gather a decent army. Maybe a unit is too much, but it shouldn’t be a negative result. Even gathering common materials that are “dropped in the enemies hasty retreat” would be better. Or has been mentioned in many posts – regain the stamina point to create an even result

In my opinion the time is better because everybody from over the world can join the contest. In previous ones Asian can not join because the contest always at night.

I´m glad you can take part (I guess via Facebook since you are listed as one the top players), but my comment was simply at the % of kong players that are on the list. Becuase most Kong players only play for a few hours not a whole week

But the other rules relate to only Kong users, and here you only see 2 kong users in the top 60 so I would have to disagree that it gets more than normal amount of people in the tournament. For a lot of players 1 week is a long time

Nival – can you break down how those values are calculated ? because the Polar Bear resistance seems to be ignored

Wheres the updated list of top 50 players?

Topic: King's Bounty: Legions / You ask - we reply!

I would like at least the ability to swap common materials , i.e. 4 wood – 1 lesser magic seal
Or craft chevrons (200 cadet chev = 1 Officer Chev)
The ability to “unmake” a piece of equipment for X amount of gold (there needs to be more use for gold once units are upgraded)
Buying common materials with gold

PVP runaways and disconnects need to be solved:
IF a player runs away (which he should be able to do if he thinks the opposing army is powerful) the player with the more powerful army is penalised -1 Stamina, but gains no exp, no gold and no units. This counters the idea of building a good army and the opposing player should still get a chance to capture a unit if those no units were not killed. My reasoning being the other army has fled the battlefield or routed, it was always common for the other army to give chase and capture/kill units fleeing.
Same should apply for disconnects.

Doing the G_Nomey thing from the amount of units question and hedging my bets:

3 Champs vs 1 Gargoyle Shaman
9 Champs vs 2 Demonologists
16 Champs vs 3 Polar Bears

Well I hope it is until 3am PST or that final hour is a large chunk of points missing from my second stage score

the system +1 / -1 it’s a good idea…. but i think that if the opponent run away it’s better a +1 alike

I think +1 for a runaway is a bit much if you only get 1 for a win (even though that would boost my score by 50%). I think at least you shouldn’t lose a stamina point for the battle, then you have at least lost nothing

1. We’ll keep track of your victories from 4 p.m. CET (10 a.m. CST/8 a.m. PST) September 21st, 2012 to 9:59 p.m. CET (3:59 p.m. CST/1:59 p.m. PST) September 22nd, 2012 (first stage). And from 10:01 p.m. CET (4:01 p.m CST/2:01 p.m PST) September 22nd, 2012 to 11 a.m. CET (5 a.m. CST/3 a.m. PST) September 24th, 2012 (second stage).

Isn’t it now CEST time (Daylightlight savings time + 1?) not CET in Europe?

I didn’t get more than Flash to Fury but I definitely did a post a score. I find it concerning that both Kong users pay the 10 gems yet both are registered at 0 points.
