Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] New Player Critique: Who Decided Pricing?!

There used to be one
Then players probably like yourself sold off all their cards
then didn’t have enough cards and got stuck
and had to cry to the devs to reset their account

This actually happened so many times they removed card selling :(

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] New Player Critique: Who Decided Pricing?!

I think the problem is that people are approaching this as a MTG style card game where you can just shell out a few bucks and sit down to play, rather than as the rpg-style card game this is.

@ Yajin if you want things to spend money on, they’re adding both sealed tournaments and limited tournaments soonish at a low gem cost :)

You really don’t need to spend much money (or any!) to be competitive unless you want top 3 rank in standard or something.
That $20-30 spent in the singles store or on a hero would have made a huge difference

The price scheme would be absolutely terrible if the gem to gold ratio was poor, but since it’s the opposite what they’ve created is a a game unlike other ccgs where you can’t realistically buy a deck that’s going to be better than a player who’s put in his months of farming gold.
None of the faithful players want what you seem to be asking for, which is the ultimate rewards in a deck of cards/heroes being handed out to everyone who feels like shelling out the price of a steam game, putting them on the same level as players who’ve been working on their decks for months.

There is a limited format for a reason. 1-2 weeks of free play and you can effortlessly be a competitive pvp player, which is something that no other ccg comes anywhere close to.
If limited’s not good enough for you and you just have to play in the top difficulty arena vs people who’ve been playing for months b/c you paid the devs the price of a couple pitchers of beer
This probably is the wrong game for you; thankfully the devs aren’t greedy enough to cater to that kind of crap.

There’s been a new thread on this subject every single week since this game came out, and the end responses from long-term players have always been the same.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] In Game costs and Gem costs to lead to a "Broken Game"

FinalSlayer trembled nervously as he put the finishing touches on yet another essay about how to improve flash games. “They must see what I’m trying to do here, they just must”, he repeated in a drone as he rocked back and forth on his creaky stolen office chair. “It’s for the greater good of humanity!” he exlaimed, wiping cheetoh dust off his pudgy fingers as he stabbed confidently at the submit button.

Now if only that aching thorn on his side – the poster using the ‘Puritas’ – would just leave him alone, FinalSlayer was sure that his superior intellect and rhetoric would win over those greedy corporate developers and better the gaming world for everyone.

Justice would come…on the internets.

Nope, Puritas. The funny thing is I’m certain he isn’t even very good at Kingdoms. He bragged about being top 30 in Standard (not impressive, considering most players don’t understand the basic strategy of Kingdoms, and it’s hardly a complicated CCG), yet doesn’t consider Uunys particularly overpowered and claims Ravinova is “mediocre”.

Reading comprehension fail at its best

Again with this ridiculous exaggeration. How about this deck:
4 Wonders – if you don’t know why free draw is auto include, ask any MtG non-beginner
4 Rejuvs
4 Skybreakers
4 Mana Sprite – since opponent usually has to play some answer (especially early on), it’s basically 2 attack flier for 1 mana
3-4 Aegis Shield – so you can laugh at QDC/Torture
3-4 Maelstrom
0-2 Dimensional Rip
4 Scorchblast Dragons
12 other cards you like, possibly some cannon fodder for Scorch or Golemnify to deal with opponent’s Giant or just more card draw with Study X/Deep Thought. With this I could squash any pathetic “mostly (un)commons, few rares” deck you play.

lullll good like winning with that piece of crap
and you wonder why you never win games with deck construction efforts like that

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kingdoms CCG] Problems with This Game and How to Fix Them

again you’re just showing how little you know
$100 is nowhere NEAR enough to unlock even a fraction of the cards
People who’re spending that much did so just to buy a couple playsets of epics to fill out their combos

whereas I’ve been playing off and on since launch, and I still get a card every 2-3 days that’s worth building into my deck
Is the gem cost ridiculously pricey as fk here? Yes, but whether it was intentional or not it has the side effect of making it intensely difficult to actually pay to win here – because the availability of gold and lack of restrictions on freemium-only content is unlike any other ccg.
There are less than 5 players in the entire game that I can’t go 50-50 with, and all 5 of those are because of a certain broken T3 hero that they use in conjunction with their expensive cards, not the cards alone.

The people that play this do so because they actually enjoy the gameplay and collecting, and they’re the same names that I can stop back in after a month break and will see them doing the same thing also, because we know that wallet warriors won’t have ruined it by the time we return, and our grinded collection will actually mean something.

It’s quite obvious you’re not a diamond, and there’s nothing wrong with that despite your antagonistic and holier-than-thou approach.
The devs aren’t aiming this game at players like you though, and you’re welcome to sod off back to tyrant

Also it’s not like you’ve had any new ideas here, and they haven’t already been answered, and a lot of us who continue playing this game are much higher ranked at all the other ccgs you mention than you will ever be :)

Learn to use the search function before you generously give indie devs your amazing opinion next time mate
cheers

loool maybe you should consider that ccgs might not be what you’re looking for then.
To be brutally honest, pretty much every one of your points has no merit.
This game has far less grind than any other ccg out there, spectromancer aside (Hell, if we all wanted to play with the same pool, we’d be playing that game instead of this). You can buy a gold pack after an hour of grind once you throw together a decent deck for limited, which honestly doesn’t take much.

There are a ton of uncs/commons that are staples even at standard level, and tons of rares that are shit.
Most of the epics are combo cards that require a deck built around them to be useful (aside from a few mildly overpowered ones)

As another example of how little you know about the meta: Uunys is strong but fine, Ravi is mediocre; the ele hero is by far and away the dominant hero in t2 and desperately needs a nerf.

It’s nice and all that you’ve put a lot of thought into this, but don’t get the developer’s being nice enough to chat with you about it as signs that your points are valid – anyone who’s actually been playing this game for awhile unlike the people who you supposedly talked to wouldn’t agree on a single one of your points.

On a personal note, I’m sitting in top30 in standard and I haven’t spent a penny more than the starter pack on this game
Of which I haven’t spent a single gem.
Also my 40-card standard deck has 16 uncs and 14 commons because they are just too good to take out.

Ok, not just undead acolyte
Randomly fireball will not target adjacent allies either
I.e. Play on a middle boltling after a lightning blitz, and only that one dies :/

Undead Acolyte super buggy
Anytime an effect like fireball or obliterate kills him and adjacent allies
only acolyte gets the reassemble, regardless of the order on the field

This is what i meant by false advertising. Users are being fooled into thinking they are being given “gems”. There isn’t a single moment you actually “got gems”. I’ve already expressed what the correct solutions to this problem is above.

Boo hoo. Lawyer up after your mom picks you up from school.

Keep in mind that there are specific arenas with enforced rules to level the playing field out – this will persist when live play is here as well.

and considering this is the only f2p tcg with a limited ruleset by rarity, and the least grind for cards
that’s a damn lot of entitled whining to be given more stuff for no money

Card monsters? 3 weeks’ grind for a rare, then 2 goddamn months to level it up…unless you pay $10 ofc
UR? You can buy a pack a week if you play 13+ hours a week
CotD? Yeah good luck getting an epic/legendary more than once every two months from drafting… and of course that’s not going to matter because you’re never going to win against people with playsets of $100 cards

The gem pricing in this game and rulesets are exactly what’s stopping it from being pay to win, and the grind for new cards will be a lot more tolerable once there are competitive tournaments/guild events to evaluate your progress better.
Sure, maybe if this was one of those myriad other games with a shit-ton of useless cards and only a few staples the whining might have some merit, but it’s not

If you can’t handle working to collect things maybe this isn’t the right game genre for you
