Topic: Outernauts / I need a quick and clear answer: How do I make sure I won't get attacked by other players?

Update: After relogging, the ‘battle report’ is empty again, so I don’t know any more if I was attacked and robbed or not or by whom. This new ‘feature’ is clearly bugged, either creating false reports, or not keeping the records that should be there. Or, in case the records are intentionally removed this fast, it is another serious design flaw.

Either way, the situation with ‘Battle Report’ adds another level of fail to this whole disaster.

Topic: Outernauts / I need a quick and clear answer: How do I make sure I won't get attacked by other players?

As the title says, given the recent update, it got very important to know how one can avoid being the target of attacks, since there is very little one can do in the way of actual defense. Putting in all the best beasts you have only goes so far, since the attacking player will always be better than the AI that is ‘fighting’ in your place.

Edit: In case anyone thought logging off on your homeworld kept you safe, I can assure you that is not true. I got attacked and lost a gem fragment while I was away.

Topic: Outernauts / Why are you forcing us to PvP?

This last update made the PvP even more of a fail now. At least until now, the ‘defender’ was not actually affected by the attacker, but now you actually lose stuff from your inventory due to the actions of others that you can’t do anything about?! This is sanctioned griefing and I don’t expect it will go down well.

Also, the addition of rare+ beasts in the store is turning the game into even more Pay to Win than it was before.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Ranch Update! (Includes Friend Scroller update!)

It’s good to have the ability to expand the house and having to pay for it is not really a problem as such. Every game has you pay for this sort of thing and that’s fine. However, the way it is presented, this is a case of straightforward corruption. The ‘official’ who is actually supposed to provide you something for free is demanding money from you to do his job.

Do you really want to promote corruption in a game like this?

Topic: Outernauts / Support Issue Thread

Hello,

after finishing the ‘Booty Hideaway’ dungeon for the 2nd time, I was supposed to get the Pirate Jacket item. However, the game failed to load just at the transfer out of the dungeon, after the ‘dungeon finished’ message. I reloaded the game, but the jacket didn’t appear.

Please, get me the jacket or at least let me win it again.

This item is actually used in your Breeding facility, not in the Incubator.

Topic: Outernauts / TrainingTickets

Training tickets sometimes come out of the chests and those cracks in the ground that you need 3 actions to completely dig out. You won’t find them in the ‘normal’ spots like thick grass and stuff. Also, your friends can send you these tickets as a gift.

Edit: I’m quite sure I have been getting the tickets from chests and such, but I didn’t get even one ticket today, so now I’m not so sure any more. Your friends/ neighbors are thus your best bet.

Topic: Outernauts / Why are you forcing us to PvP?

You have PvP missions in game, some of them are even critical for advancement and even when not, you know very well that leaving a mission unfinished is not something a player can easily do. I hate PvP in general and consider the way it is pushed on the players in this game obnoxious.

And now the ‘challenge’ for this week is demanding of us to PvP and even has a winter/ Christmas theme. I consider this beyond bad taste.

It’s sad actually, because otherwise the game is interesting and nice to play. The PvP par has no real meaning for the rest of the game, aside from when it is forced on a player with the mission demand, thus it seems to me that absolutely nothing would be lost if this whole ‘feature’ would simply get scrapped.

Topic: Outernauts / Suggestions

- I second any and all suggestions regarding map scrolling. Movement and map scrolling shouldn’t be on the same mouse button, there are just too many chances of an unwanted move. One or the other should be on the keyboard only.

- And I also second some way to see what items you are currently able to produce in either facility, along with the materials you have/ are missing, without the need of opening a currently inactive facility of that type.

Topic: Outernauts / Breeding Facilities Bug

I would say, considering that there are, as you say, only a few people who have the extra breeding facilities and they are likely outnumbered by the people who are finding this unfair and not right, you will have fewer annoyed people if you remove the extra breeding stations.

Give the affected people some compensation if you so choose, but I think establishing yourself as a fair and consequent game managers will be of significant value for you down the lane. Tolerating bug exploits, however small and seemingly inconsequential, doesn’t usually go down well with the community.

Topic: Outernauts / [Bug] Laboratory Level

It’s possible this is meant to be, but I agree it’s a bad thing to happen. At least there should be some warning about it.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Feedback and Bug Reports

You absolutely have to add some way of ‘friend’ list management. I probably have more names on my list that have stopped playing this game than I have active people on the list, but there is no way I can see to remove these inactive names. Removing them as Kongregate friends doesn’t affect anything it seems.

Topic: Outernauts / Alloy Cluster? And other missing products.

In the incubator there is a boost item o the list that increases the beast’s metal type, along with the one that increases the beasts gem type. I also received the notification while collecting materials than I now can make this ‘Alloy Cluster’.

However, no matter how closely I look at the list in my Lab and Armory, I can only find the ‘Mineral Cluster’ for the gem type, but not the ‘Alloy Cluster’ for the metal type.

Also, there seem to be a few weapons missing from the armory list. I receive the notification that I now have enough materials for this or that weapon, but I still can’t find it on the product list in the armory.

Are these to be considered bugs, or are these features not yet fully implemented?

Topic: Outernauts / Fight 4 PVP through Leaderboard quest fail ?!?

Try looking at the Beast value global leaderboard, I was in the same situation as you are and managed it this way. Just look for low player levels with beast values close to your own.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Feedback and Bug Reports

With this game relying on ‘friends’ so heavily, we need a way to weed out the contacts that have gone inactive. How about making it so that contacts stop appearing among your ‘Game Friends’ when sending out requests if they haven’t logged in to BW2 lately. Last 24 or 48 hours perhaps.

Or, as someone else suggested already, only make the contacts currently online and in the game show up when sending out requests.

The way I understand it, the ribbons will only be given out once the event ends.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Mr.Mittens- bug or design mistake?

I still only have access to the Mysterious Forest fishing spot, but there, I seem to catch more of this Mr.Mittens cat than anything else. It makes fishing pointless.

I don’t even have the missions for the ‘General Store’, much less the mission itself that would require this cat. Is this really how it was intended?

Does anyone already have the access to this specific mission? How many cats are required? What are the gains?
