Topic: Ninja Warz / How to be PRO at this game

OK this is the strategy.

At when you first start and your collecting the daimyo award make sure you get 3 or 4 karma from it. If not reset again and do it all over again. Once that happens make sure to have lots of allies. Then attack somebody like lavaflame or wingnut55 cause you need the achievement. OK so your farming and before you buy a ninja make sure you attack somebody with 3 ninjas cause its an achievement. Then buy a ninja and attack somebody with 1 ninja. Also make sure you win your first 150 fights. Its an achievement that gives you a karma boost. And when you get the first chance to enter a tournament don’t. Don’t enter one ti’ll you get the chance to get a katara. By then you should have one 150 fights with no loses( Hopefully :]). Then after that you want to take this game pretty slowly. Only attack people 10 lvls under you and every once in a while you can attack somebody like lavaflame. Also when your vs Genbu lvl 15 make sure to use food weapons its a ten karma achievement. So overall you should be beast at Ninja Warz by doing this.

The daimyo reward is random at all times. It’d be like expecting to get 3-4 karma everytime which doesn’t happen, nor will it. Resetting because the first time you didn’t get 3-4 karma is dumb. I mean, if the second/third/fourth time you reset and you still don’t get any karma then you’ve just wasted time in which you would have earned three to four times that much simply playing the game.

Power-leveling by attacking someone like lavaflame is not a good idea at such a low level as it will put you in a higher level category in which you might not be ready for especially when you’re just starting and have nothing. This becomes even more of a problem if you then try to enter a tournament in which you don’t stand a chance because of the power-leveling. If you start by attacking only lower levels you will be able to build up a stock of weapons/relics/gold and do the achievements without facing the likelihood of getting attacked and losing thus ending any chance of getting the initial win streak achievements while minimizing the chance of losing when you attack as the NPC ninja clans are easier than the player ninja clans. If you do this, the achievements for fighting 2-3 ninja clans while you only have a single ninja will auto-complete themselves when you’re actually ready to fight them.

You don’t have to use food items to attack Genbu the first time as you will be able to fight him once a day after he appears the first time by using the fight blimp as you can fight all the NPC bosses you’ve unlocked in the same manner as they appear above the “Allies” side of the fight blimp UI.

I personally believe that power-leveling using the higher level players at such a low level is actually counter-productive to building a strong base for your own ninja clan. Later attacking such players will be a better idea when you need more and more XP to level.

Basically, early on, buy a karma weapon, or do, well, ANYTHING that would prevent you from being strong end game? Or can you always go back and “fix” whatever mistakes you may have made?

Also, without spending any money, thanks.

Nothing that cannot be fixed by resetting. As long as you get a ninja to level 60 around level 20, and have all 6 relics by level 35 (or earlier) you should be ok. In other words, no, there is no way to permanently screw up.

No, you have to level up 350 times here, and because the FB app has items we don’t have access to, they shouldn’t be linked.

so again. HOW DO I TAKE DOWN PILLAR 0 DAMAGE

and yes waraxe…i’m smarter than u. sry. ;p

If you had bothered reading instead of ranting and complaining you’d realize the pillar was acquired on a first come, first serve basis after it was released due to the galaxy merge. How the galaxies that attacked the pillar ranked didn’t matter anymore.

This is a theoretical question, doesn’t matter if it’s on kong or facebook.

You should be asking on FB, then. It’s nice you have all the items we don’t have on here and probably never will.

Obsidian Orbit= 100 power
Or
Obsidian Fragment= 75 power and 10% critical chance

If I was stacking additional crit relics, probably the 75 pow/10% crit, otherwise the 100 power.

daexion, have u ever played WoH arena? ever? You need purples to win, these guys maybe have max 2 or 3 purples. Not enough to beat anyone except ppl losing on purpose. Just found u in gal 20, wtf do u know about power? I can’t be bothered to power down and hit u!

That’s why I don’t bother wasting AP on WoH Arena: I don’t have a strong enough deck, and I have a very good grasp of power and how it doesn’t necessarily reflect how strong someone’s heroes are.

Especially when they can drop all the way down to my range and hit me with their purple heroes. Would you like to give another example of how misleading power can be?

This is why you shouldn’t make public accusations with little more than unsubstantiated opinion. I understand the 3v3 rankings were very (extremely) suspect in the beginning and still are, but to then start making more accusations just because you don’t like they have a high win percentage and aren’t “good enough” to be doing that good? Sorry, but that kind of witch hunt should simply be PM’d to the person who can look into it, not broached on the forum to cause unneeded drama.

Since level 30 missles have a 100% hit rate, does that mean there is no reason to use target when building ships? And can I get rid of the hero skill hit on my heroes?

You can spend 20 gold to use the “forget” option and get the skill as a level 1 book.

The only ranked player that comes close to those numbers has 6 planets and 154m power, so I have no idea what he means by “low power” or who he’s talking about.

That is exactly why I attempted to exploit the bug. For science. The scientific method is a wonderful tool. Lay off Lefty, the one person trying to help provide an explanation to fix the problem.


the bug was reported tons of times, you are both bug abuser . END

The bug has been reported, but a reported bug is useless without knowing HOW to replicate it. It happens accidentally. You are obviously NOT part of a faction that has to worry about it, so quit complaining.


and the award 2012 for the worst excuse goes to… GZ!

Actually, knowing exactly how a bug/glitch triggers can help pinpoint where to look and what to look at when fixing the bug. Like, if it only triggers when “x” happens, but not “y” or when the player does something specific at a certain point in progression, but not before or after. I’m not saying the devs need any help or that anything the players are doing to help is actually helping, but you never know as stranger things have happened.

It can also help to avoid triggering unwanted bugs/glitches from happening.

In this case, due to how inter-faction competitiveness works the number of factions triggering their conquest should be expected and not attacked unnecessarily and the players shouldn’t be blamed for being competitive. I would have actually been surprised if no one had past the first few accidental conquest triggerings. You have to understand, a lot of people do not necessarily trust people they don’t know well to keep to their word that they will hold off on their next conquest so they simply trigger their next one, so that they can stay on par just in case the faction(s) that said they would hold off don’t.

As for banning anyone, I doubt any will because it’s a problem with the game U/I not working as the players expect and as the UI has worked in the past. They might roll something back so that everyone is at the same spot, but I have no idea, really.

It is difficult to drag one through the mud who voluntarily resides there.

Not sure how you can look down on someone when you’ve just lowered yourself to the same level that you complain about in others.

regardless, since you are talking about another thread in this one and this is already getting out of hand, I did intend to help out as I do participate in PVP on an alt. Reason being to conserve AP in this account for pillars. Now then, anything else you’d like to discuss or are you done dragging my name through the mud in a thread I hadn’t even commented on prior?


nvil, you might want to consider that the first post to reference you in this thread stated it was talking about the other thread in which you have several removed posts. Although, I’m not sure what you could possibly contribute to the other thread since the OP seems to have it covered already. If you want to contribute, try doing it here, instead. It’s not that no one trusts you, but no one really seems to trust you.


There’s nothing in the second post to make anyone believe that he was referring to some OTHER thread and not this one

Actually, logic and commonsense indicate he was as you had no posts in this thread and the OP in this thread has links to the thread that is to contain the Arena rankings. Sherlock would probably find it rather elementary to figure out.

As I did say, however, if you really want to be helpful, you might simply post your contributions here so the OP can post them in the ranking thread. In the future I suggest actually asking if your assistance is wanted before jumping in where you might not be wanted due to your reputation.

As for the other remark you made, stating someone resides where they reside reputationwise is simply stating a fact, not insulting you or lower themselves to your level as you claim. It’d be like saying a pig lives in a dirty pigsty and the pig claiming offense for someone stating the truth about where it lives.

Because of a business model… I don’t want to see an increase in the people with perfect level 50 items gemmed up, that’s something to be reserved for those pouring an immense amount of time into this game or spending a good amount. Making it common would suck for every single person who doesn’t pay while skyrocketing everyone who pays even more.

Also, I’m making the assumption that you want this to be much cheaper since reducing it by only a small amount wouldn’t solve your problem of viewing it as too high.

I’ve heard this excuse before, and it always came from those at the top who wanted to keep their choke-hold on the best items.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Clash: Rise of the Heroes] Outclassed Allies

The two cards are different and serve different purposes.

Bodhi does give an extra blocker to stop another source of damage, but he’s slower for a deck that runs through focus than Luna who allows that ally slot to be open for another ally to be placed immediately and gives the 15f right then instead of waiting another turn for the Sun Lotus to die. It’s the difference between Mental Acquity and Concentrate.

There is basically no difference between Amp and Frost, and both serve the same purpose and fill that purpose equally well. Could 1 HP make a difference? Maybe, but in my experience Amp would have died just as fast as Frost based on the amount of damage Frost takes in the games I play.

Originally posted by wasteroftime:

is there any plan for cards that affect multiple targets to be changed on their proc rate?

ie. 75% chance for target to miss next attack…. it gets calculated once, then applied to all targets. Its seems a lot more intuitive to calculate the chance of the effect activating once per target. this would make the cards less luck dependent and overall more balanced no?

It actually isn’t more intuitive, and wouldn’t be more balanced.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Clash: Rise of the Heroes] warp is cheating

Originally posted by Casual42:

NPC don’t have to play by the same rules as us.
In any game a boss is supposed to be a challenge, and nobody will complain that he is overpowered compared to us. The feeling of achievement comes from finding a way to overcome that difference. If there was no challenge it would feel like a chore and thus be boring.

^this

In other games I’ve played, when the boss is just more of the same many players complain to no end that they are just more of the same and boring. This is the first time when the players are upset when the boss villain isn’t just more of the same.

That being said, I understand that you are upset that these villains are changing the rules, but you have to realize that is why they are villains. I’ve come across many that are hard to deal with simply because of how they work and what their power sets are, but instead of complaining about it I simply try to figure out how to beat them with what I have.

THEY ARE GUNSHOTS AT THE NORMALS! RESTRAIN THE BB’S!!

I like this idea, but wouldnt it be easier if we can check off a button to disable or able artifacts or certain spam weapons?

That would actually be easier, and would allow players to prevent overpowered CS type items from warping the playing field.

Also, no matter whether someone can obtain an item by not actually paying real cash doesn’t change the fact that said item must be balanced against the rest of the items and not have a power level that exceeds anything else lest you create a situation where the game becomes who spends the most real cash wins also known as Pay to Win.

While I realize that the devs have put a lot of time and effort into their projects that also means they shouldn’t create situations where a player decides to not to play at all or anymore because of items that warp the playing field because then they lose any potential money they might have spent.

One of the problems with weapons that warp playing fields is that each time you play you have to take that one single item into account no matter what you do and plan a strategy to deal with that one single item. When that happens, the game is broken and the item should be rebalanced so that doesn’t happen.
