Topic: Call of Gods / [Bug] Need help? Find a bug? This is the place.

Cross Server Battle Jamz seems to be very broken. I click it, it says “You entered top 10 in weekly local battle jam” and then… nothing. There are no opponents and no rankings.

If they made it so that after clearing a board you got 30 more free flips it actually might be worth considering. It was really annoying to spend some gold getting more flips to clear the board and then be told “You want to start again? Give us 100g for 30 flips!”

Topic: Call of Gods / [Suggestion] Have a suggestion? This is the place.

I just want to add my voice of support to qyay. I am, arguably, the most overpowered player still playing on Kong, at least based on the Cross Server Championship. I’m the one player who q thought could still do event bosses on m2. And I don’t bother doing event bosses anymore because the high level ones are so ridiculously overpowered compared to the rewards.

Think about that, callofgods developers – your most powerful player on the platform is telling you your event bosses are too hard to bother with. What chance does the rest of the player base have of enjoying them? It’s absolutely ridiculous.

I get that at this point you’re never going to nerf the op 120+ mobs, but at LEAST make it so that event bosses come with mobs their own level. The worst thing in the world is when you put out a level 115 boss that comes with a bunch of 122 mobs that are harder than the boss itself, or a level 125 boss that comes stacked with the most power level 135 mobs in the game. There’s just no reason for it.

The jump from d11f to d12 or Sky City is still a major gap, and it’s one everyone has to go through. The strategy I – and many others – used to make the jump was to coupon skip through d12h and then kill the final boss. You’ll find that the boss itself is no stronger than any other d12h mob, so if you can scrape by a single fight in there you can take out the final boss. He gives quite good XP to a level 120 player and has a chance to drop Blood Phoenix gear, a pair of which will really boost your fighting power on a given hero.

If you don’t have coupons, remember that the Fantasy dungeon tokens can be exchanged for Enhancement Stone boxes. Enhancing the gear of your attack heroes is a massive boon and getting all of your shooter gear with an Attack component in it leveled to 3 is surprisingly quick and beneficial. You get less benefit from enhancement your tanks (because Def is so underpowered as a stat) so focus on your shooters first.

Another good option is to use the overworld mobs in Sky City to build up Silver. They are worth 3000 per fight. That will help give you a Silver base for Cultivation that is way larger than anything you can get in the game up to that point, plus it providers gear to feed to your Pet and sometimes even a Wind Stone.

And remember to be doing Purgatory Abyss! Those abyss tokens you can build up and exchange for a guaranteed piece of red gear are ace.

Also remember to make use of Events when you can. This weeks are pretty worthless, but in recent times we’ve had events that could very conceivably give you the level 115 Wonderer’s gear. Which would certainly help your cause!

The end result of all of these improvement options should be to be able to one-shot-kill the Sky City shooter mobs. That’s really what you’re going for here. Once you can one-shot the enemy shooters the mob groups suddenly seem so much less daunting. So, again, focus on attack attack attack.

And remember: You have so many more paths to power to make this jump than people did on servers before you. Pets, Astro, Cultivation, Enhancement, Loop Line quests, Escort… all systems that have been introduced to start providing power once the traditional “do dungeon-level up-get gear” path starts losing steam. CoG HAS eased the jump significantly. You just have to make use of the new features instead of relying on just dungeon XP and drops.

So I just tried it out 8 gold for VIP doesn’t seem to bad, Room 1 wiped me and I did lose all my T4’s at the normal loss rate so yeah looking like a giant waste with no gain at all. If your not uber strong don’t waste your gold, I’m decent at level 130. COG maybe give players some idea of how strong the floors are before they waste gold.

Even if you are strong enough to win a bunch of fights don’t bother. I went a looooong way and my reward is a few dozen stats – which is something like a .00001% power increase. The risk and cost just isn’t even CLOSE to being worth the reward.

wouldn’t they save themselves a lot of work by merging all the kong servers, and freeing up server space for other games they are working on?

Less (database) space than you’d think. Since the game world is almost completely stateless they have to store very little server-specific information – it would almost all be per-account. There is minor stuff like World Boss HP and tournament-related data, of course, but in the bulk of data and processing is the same for 3 accounts across three servers as three accounts in the same server.

As for work, they almost definitely have some scripting in place to do releases/deployments for them. Considering how fast Maint goes these days an extra (already configured) environment is probably almost no extra work. All the work would be at the beginning of a new server – or at merge time.

tl;dr If they have semi-decent processes in place they can push out maints to our existing services for years for less work than it would take to merge them all.

Topic: Call of Gods / Team Boss Sunfire Hound has come. You can find it on Lv.60, 90, 120, 135, 145 maps.

Could be worse – those of us that can’t do 120 are hosed by a 135 boss that comes with 142 minions.

Thanks for Score Master, but could you bring the event into the modern age? No updated Score Shop and no score for 6th layer makes it super clear you just copy and pasted this without thought.

Oh my god I just got to witness someone self-righteously saying to check your spelling and “grammer” in the wild. I thought this only happened in fake screen shots. What a good day.

Clearly your bead on the English language is perfectly sharp and flawless, Savage Creture. We should accept your interpretation of that sentence uncritically and shame on anyone that interpreted it correctly.

Shoot five times IN GOAL. The times your shot got blocked you didn’t shoot it in the goal. It got blocked. They didn’t say shoot five times AT goal. IN! It specifically says IN!

How the heck can you scream in all caps about how you want to FOLLOW THE WORDING YOU POSTED when you apparently didn’t read the wording they posted? They worded it CORRECTLY, you just stopped reading two words too early!
