Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Release notes 2012-10-30

The horde modes have been excluded as these specifically have been build around the thrill of playing against time while keeping check of your HP, POW and building multipliers.

Looking forward to player reactions as this time change is quite a significant step from Always having a time trial next to the Puzzle and the Battle.

Hello Bob10110,

Let’s dive deeper into options:
How would you actually make certain that the fight against the highscore run does not turn into impossible odds?
e.g. Valmar’s 7.5Mio run must have done damage in the 1000’s of HP. This cannot be just absorbed by one player if that player has to to attack a high score.

If so, how do you define, win or lose?

Hello Bob10110 and Gameowner,

tx for sharing both your feedback, this is most appreciated. Wonderful idea to play against a player’s highscore run.
We had some similar thoughts and one other complete different scenario, but will take into account this thread. I will be paying close attention to this thread to see if any more feedback is available on the subject of PvP.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Hacking competition

One way of improving the game is receiving loads of feedback.

Any player that sends(or has send) us proof of a great battle (can be a high score, a great combination of Power Cards, or any creative thinking from your part), any great victory(you decide), feedback on the game, an issue you want a solution for, a screenshot of a high rating, or just creative game poetry via a PM or a Kongregate Bug report proof will automatically enter into a competition.

The winner will be randomly drawn and receive an Axe charm, which symbolizes the art of Hacking into the game. This competition ends Friday October 26 at 23:55CET/22:55UK/16:55NY/13:55LA time.

See the axe here: http://bit.ly/AxeHacking

One condition is of course that the winner will send us the postal mail address (anywhere in the world), failure to do so in 7 days after closing of competition will result in a redraw.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Suggestion: Pause Button

Hello GarnetRose,

Thanks for adding this bit of information. Will add this to the issue report. If you could test this out in a testbattle it would be great to understand if this lead directly to your freeze.

Grtz

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Suggestion: Pause Button

Hello GarnetRose, the interesting bit is that wehave a sort of Pause button in the game, by hitting the exit cross in right upper corner. Will review if Pause button would work same way but then be shown as pause button.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Winning strategies

The first winning strategy is by Valmar:
I just used the following Power Cards: Ice, heal and nature (as a quick joker).

I tried to make first 6 combos as soon as possible: 1 pair, 2 pairs, Three of the kind, Straight, Flush and Full House. Four and Five of a Kind is optional – don’t focus much on these two. After I complete 4-5 combos I break the chain. That’s all.

And one good tip for all: Don’t spend more than 4 second on searching for a combo. If you can’t find any, break the chain.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Runespell Saga] Way too easy to make Flushes

There is no denying that flushes are easy to make. “Flush Spamming” can be a last resort of you need to do quick and repeated damage and you don’t have any more power cards. Royal Flushes and Straight Flushes can also be easily attained, but the trick is to build up a large enough multiplier so that you get the highest score possible. If you repeatedly make the same combo (flushes), you will break your chain repeatedly and never raise your multiplier – which will become mandatory quite quickly in order to rack up your scores, gain stars, and unlock new areas.

Mastering the game means that you need to play fast, and continuously make sure that you are building towards unique combos – even if flush spamming is more easy to do – all the while looking out for what powers the enemy is going to activate next :)
