I think u got the order wrong; none of us uses that uranium steal gun – but we did use big boom

Voices of reason… they are few.. they are silent.. but they indeed exist! ;)

Not going to argue against obviously predominant assumptions that seem to be the basis of your opinion.
If you are actually interested in the details, ask in chat.

Another point:

Healing and buffing out of a safety zone .. that shouldn’t be possible.

Cry cry!
…but he is kinda right. Making it not work in HQ is no solution though, a rework is needed.
Big Boom also ignores pvp protection.

Yep – bug still around.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Inhibitor Bug

Hey,

In our base are several reactors not on full health, right next to the inhibitors – and they won’t heal them.
Could you please fix that? Some of our reactors are going low!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Invisibility bug

So,

everbody knows it, and I feel like it occurs more often these days.
Could you fix that thing? It’s a really annoying way to lose ranking. Like, really annoying.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] clarification

As long as base defenses are ridiculously strong as they are right now and there is not really a way to get a higher rank than a guild that has already reached maximum defense points, there should not be any more bonuses as there are right now.
Those bonuses should require constant effort by the guilds to maintain.. and with effort I don’t mean farming Uranium or recruiting more and more members (or just sitting there doing nothing like it is right now for that matter)

To answer the questions (as I did in chat):

- PvP kills give exp, as long as the victim is on a sufficiently high level
- The amount uranium lost is somewhere around the recycling percantage of the destroyed buildings price
For example: ~10% recycling results in a loss for a destroyed 80k-drone of somewhere around 8k, maybe a bit less, not sure about that.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Novabot...

Exactly my observation. Not doing any arena fights – they were before the bot existed already far too random with the 10% lvl difference, bonus items and unfitting concept for the reward of loss of arena points.
If you want to match up players with higher or lower lvls, then please do a level scaling in the gain and loss of points. +1 or +2 lvl can be a gigantic difference in strength, even if the higher guy has few points.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Sugestion thread

Honestly, a rework of the arena system is badly needed.

The bot has like all tech possible available, responds way to fast to all spawning items and adjusts his movement to the player’s far quickly.
Right now, it is a bad matchmaking (getting matched up with ppl +-10% of your own lvl is far from well thought through), the reward or penalty is not attached to the leveldifference and the bonus-items are just way to random – what are those good for?

So not going to do any arena fights anytime soon.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Sugestion thread

Regarding ingame messages/questnotifications:

It is just _far_too_much. Not only do players get far too big and flashy questnotifications, but also are they bothered by frequently returning messages about mission,arenafight proposals and research.

My thoughts of a solution (which is so much needed):

- One (small) button to open a mission-overview window, maybe with a small [!] on it when something new came up
- One (small) button to open a menu for arena fights, containing queue-timer, personal ranking and maybe some statistics/other interesting stuff
- So far, the research notification window on the right side opens up again when you change the region (galaxy to galaxy, or guild hq <→ galaxy). Please change that, when I closed it I don’t want to have it opened again without me wanting to.

In addition: please put the Uranium and Star counters next to the other resources – we all have only limited room on our screens.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Bug with latest flash player update // ping timeout

South-West Germany.

I am trying ~ every 15 minutes, no change.
It is a simple ping timeout inside the game frame – the same I get when I try to reach www.sublinet.com. Just can’t get through :) So far it is the only connection that seems troubled, but if it is the backbone, then I wouldn’t be able to reach other points in the region of your server either.
Do you happen to know a server I could ping just to verify that?

edit:
works again

Sadly, it is still not working.

I doubt that it is software related, the only difference on my side compared to last evening is the Flash update – however, that shouldn’t influence the basic connection to your servers including the whole website. If it is a backbone problem, it will probably ‘fix itself’ (obviously someone directly at the backbone will fix it, but there is nothing I can do to accelerate that).

Is there any possibilty that your server is somehow blocking me / IPs from my region?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Bug with latest flash player update // ping timeout

Hey,

I just updated my adobe flash player. Since then, the game is stuck at 0% when trying to log in.

- Adblock and Noscript have been disabled

- Java is naturally enabled in my browser (Firefox)

- None of the points mentioned in here fit to my situation:
http://www.kongregate.com/forums/248-nova-raider/topics/318946-read-me-connection-login-problems

- Would have used the support page, but it seems to be offline.

Guess no research for me while I’m at work, so sad right now :)

So far,
Kira

Edit:
After restart of my computer I can’t quite seem to reach game.novaraider.com – even pings don’t come through. Not sure if that is a related problem, but it might point to a problem with the closest backbone.

Thanks for the quick fix, much better now!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Game performance after the patch

Hey,

not sure what exactly changed, but for some reason I and some others that I asked in chat have trouble with the game fluency, especially but not exclusively after changing the region. It also occurs randomly during fights and as you can expect it is really unpleasent.

So far,
Kira

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] Important guild issues.

+1 to the acknoledgement of the problem, a solution is indeed necessary.

Your proposal sure is one way to deal with it – pretty complicated though and I’d like to have as few restrictions as possible.
Therefore, maybe just a Non-Invasion mode for guilds under a certain amount of guild points. Means, as long as they don’t attack anybody, they can’t get attacked either. As soon as the guild reaches the point limit, Invasion should be possible (maybe ~1000 points – it is up to the guilds to built up their HQ so they won’t reach that limit if they don’t want to).
Not sure which solution would be the best, maybe Sublinet can just grab some ideas up.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Nova Raider] loading...0%

I am sitting here in a network with a proxy server aswell (using firefox), resulting in the same 0% problem. Sadly, I don’t have access to the network settings.
What confuses me though: I am able to start a completely new game when I am not logged in. However, after logging into my Kongregate account, I am stuck at 0%.
