Topic: Sky Ocean / Referral Code for New Players + Tips!

F7Y8SU is a super referral code, use this instead!

Your advice is nice, but you need to consider the flip side. Scouts with pure speed using melee weapons IS A COLOSSAL FAIL when it comes to defending. You end up running away and never being able to use your melee weapons while attackers get to use cannons/missiles safely.

I am a Mechanic with all points into Defense. (zero Gun/zero Navi) and almost nobody can kill me when I am defending. Though on the flip side, I can’t attack people! No one class is better than others.

Topic: Cry Havoc / [Dev] Player Feedback

I’m still relatively new and not playing the game heavily just yet. (I’m barely scratching 2*/3* units). But I see a lot of fun and potential with this game.

My only suggestion at this time:
-more sorting options for units. Limiting to 1* units, 2* units, etc is nice but I would like to see “Organize by Attack Power” with highest attack units first, “Organize by Health Power” with highest health units first.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [DV8:Exile] Feedback and Suggestions

why does having your avatar alive 24/7 is so crucial??? Just accept that it’s going to die at least once a day. EVERYONE dies once a day. That infamy just gets tossed back and forth. You wake up, kill your killers and some others and gain whatever infamy. You go to sleep and lose some or all or more of a loss of infamy. Whatever. That same person who killed you went to sleep and probably got his avatar killed by someone else. That someone else has to go to sleep and got his avatar killed by a 4th person. You wake up and kill the 4th person. Guess what? infamy is back where they are.
Deal with it. It’s a part of the game. If you don’t want to die during your sleep, it’s called using a shield. If you won’t use a shield, then you obviously don’t consider your avatar THAT valuable, so what’s the problem?

What’s wrong with a constant infamy of 20k? 30k? 40k? 100k? 750k? It’s not that big of a deal, even for me. I have gone from 0 to 250k to 0 to 500k to 0 to 750k. I wouldn’t have any problem dropping to 0 again because the next time around I’ll have 1 million. Granted, I am a WW and have spent $400 into this game but the point is still valid. If i was a f2p, I would be at a constant rate of around 40-50k, maybe even 100k of infamy. I would die every night but I would wake up and take it back just as easily. Bronze has done it since day 1 without cheating and hes at 100k. That’s pretty amazing for a f2p’s infamy. He has no problems gaining back the infamy obviously, since he’s been at 100k-ish for a long time now.

I repeat, SO WHAT IF YOU DIE EVERY NIGHT? Look at everyone else. Those with 30k generally flux around 30k, those with 20k tends to stay around 20k. Every once in a while someone gets lucky and triples their infamy (killing bronze, killing me, etc.) but that same infamy EVENTUALLY FINDS IT WAY BACK TO THE APPROPRIATE OWNERS.
Infamy makes no difference at all! Just enjoy your online fights. Nothing more.

With all that said, give me your infamy! ROAR. MANA IS HUNGRYYYY!

As for alts, yes it’s a problem but you’re fueling it by adding your own accounts. People respect you bronze. People believe in your credibility. People believe in your battle skills. People believe in this game because of you and your one-account play style. You completely destroyed that when you started cheating – and even lashed out at people who had nothing to do with it. Your respect was lost. Your credibility got damaged, people lost belief in you. We looked up to you because despite all odds, you stayed a one-account F2P and you even manage a 100k infamy rate for a long time. It gives other f2ps hope that they can be as good as you are instead of relying on $$$ to win. Stop being a dipshit.
Yes, I did report your two accounts. I also report tekito’s frequently, but because tekito does not log with multiple names at the same time (on Kong) most of the time, and it’s a lot harder to come up with appropriate reports because he barely talks in chat, barely logs on multiple kong accounts (probably plays some accounts on different sites), Kongregate can’t do anything about it. Short of a confession “I use X accounts and they are X, Y, Z” on kongchat, nothing that Kong can do. Which means you must rely on the game devs themselves, they are very hesitant to ban anyone because there can be so many possibilities we are overlooking, family members playing together, friends, etc. Just keep reporting every time he cheats – preferably with screenshots and as much details as possible (date, time, units, base location, blah blah).

I have reached level 60!….. or it should be so. Instead I am stuck at level 59 while continuing to go past the requirement to level up. (I am still gaining experience)

Game is completely broken, glitched beyond belief now. I cannot collect, I cannot fight, I cannot accurately determine if my base is not in alert or in alert. Nothing is working the way it should be. And this is happening because of the level 59/60 max. Every time I gain experience (from killing an unit or collecting) game stop working. I collect from one terminal and game glitches and won’t let me collect. I have to refresh, click one terminal, refresh, click one, refresh, and so on.

Just realized something after killing another player; the 3 minute/4 minute withdrawals on renegades and liberators are acutally ANTI-ALT! People with multiple accounts can’t simply spawn their other renegades/liberators from other accounts because of the withdraw timer. They will ALWAYS lose them. This forces the defender to limit himself to only one account when defending, while only able to use weaker units with short withdraw times. Definitely a nice step in the progress towards an alt-free game. Keep it up, devs! (of course there are exceptions, especially with certain base designs)

That more than likely would requires you sacrificing a lot of your valuable units. If you had attempted to dig through my conscript walls, I would have spawned 1d units to stop/stall you. I wouldn’t just sit on my hands and watch you ambush me. People knows better than to go up against me. Medibots have 30 second withdraw timers, more than ample time to flee if people started killing my conscripts.

In a standard 1v1, i would NOT spawn a lib or a reng, unless I am 20+ units ahead of him on the border. I’m crazy, but not stupid.

And the situation you said DID happen at kausk, and they still failed for the most part. (I did lose 1 ren at kausk’s)

Originally posted by DAvidro:

Libs have a 5day build time, with a 3min withdraw time, its pretty much a bad ideia to spawn a lib to attack a base, perhaps its time to reduce that time to say 90 seconds.

I am living and breathing proof that this is NOT THE CASE. I was able to kill kausk while multiple players were currently active on the map. I did not start spawning renegades or a liberator until 2-5 players were on the map fighting each other. Two of three renegades survived, the liberator survived AND killed the avatar. The third renegade nearly escaped, but failed. It’s a LOT easier than you think, you just can’t use them as your first units anymore. They are supposed to be the ‘omega’ unit, meant to used last, toward mid-battle/end-battle. Just ask kausk or anyone that was involved.

Edit: Another joint attack by me and vortex against one of catalan’s alts. Many people were watching, a few helped a little but vortex and I pretty much did all the work. Both vortex’s libs lasted a long time, but he disconnected and lost one lib. My lib survived the entire thing, including two rounds of healing from a medibot on-field. My two rengs managed to survive with the help of a medibot. Some close calls but manageable.

just from the last 24 hours;

1) Femborg activity have drastically reduced, and people are now tactically using them instead of spamming like a moron.
2) Butcher, incinerator, and assorted 1d+ units activity have increased and are now often being used to attack renegades and liberators. (instead of femborgs) This is exactly how it should be! You want to destroy an enemy’s 5-day liberator? You better be willing to risk a few 1d+ units for it! No more of this 20 minute femborg bullshit.
3) Dead renegades and liberators EVERYWHERE. It’s glorious.
4) Gravibot is now the OP unit. Please modify behavior.

Why do fences have an unlimited cap but storage cylinders and crates have a cap?

crates and cylinders have 10 hp, doesn’t provide Cover.
fences have 20 hp, doesn’t provide Cover.

I would like to see fences greatly limited, maybe the same cap as crates/cylinders.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [DV8:Exile] Withdraw timer

I think he means buying units – for the first time – from Store. A new player who has never had that unit before would not know what the withdraw timer is.

Simple, recruit the unit, spawn it in your own base in safety, look at timer. Memorize.

I really hope I’m not stepping on anyone’s toes by bringing up Clans again, given what happened to the last thread. But;

The mobile version, Exile Wars, has a much, much, better handle on this. Just from what I hear from the few players who were able to play it, I am told;

3 clans in total. You automatically get assigned to one randomly. No clanless players. This is an semi-effective method of preventing alts from joining the clans they specifically want. Good job, devs. Glad to see you guys figured something out.

That said, I believe you should bring the same system to both Facebook and Kong. As such;

1) Every new player is automatically assigned to a clan as soon the tutorial ends.
2) Any existing clan-less players would also be automatically entered a clan. Since there are clearly skewed numbers of members for each clan, I would suggest that lowest-membered clan get the players. (example, if lowest-member is Delphia Alliance at 5 players, and next clan is 12 – then 17, 20, 30, 40 to 70 for highest-member clan, then DA should get the first 7 new players, then it jumps back and forth between the two lowest clans until they catches up to the third, and so on, until all clans have 70 players)
3) Remove the Clan menu (since you get randomly assigned anyway) OR allow a clan change at the cost of 100+ diamonds. Not 15. ANY NEW PLAYER (OR ALT) CAN JUST CHANGE CLANS IMMEDIATELY with the starting 19 diamonds, making the random assignment pointless.
4) If keeping Clan Menu, add a forum of some sort or a way of communication, like an in-game forum limited to clan members.
5) Optional: Do a full reset, everyone gets scrambled up and assigned randomly a clan so it starts out completely balanced in terms of player numbers.
6) DO NOT PREVENT CLANMATES FROM KILLING EACH OTHER. Remove the stupid “same clan, can’t shoot!” feature. This feature benefits the alts FAR MORE than it benefit real players. A lot of us eventually get to know each other through blood and sweat, and certainly have likes/dislikes for certain players, regardless of the clan they are in. Friendly Fire should just be wiped out.
7) Doing 6 means you need to introduce PRIVATE GUILDS. All members of the same guild cannot attack each other (same way clan can’t attack it own members currently) A guild is not limited to one clan. This means a guild with a mix of all eight clans will be allies, and cannot attack each other. Someone can also create a guild and have it be purely limited to one clan. Whatever float the leader’s boat!
8) Doing 7 means you need to do a FULL INFAMY RESET. Clan infamy needs to be wiped clean. Player infamy needs to be wiped clean. Everyone is reset to 0 infamy (or a set number, maybe 25,000 initial infamy for everyone?)

To further expand on 6), There are plenty of people in the same clan who joined purely to annoy/harass a player of the same clan. Removing Friendly Fire allows us to curb-stomp out these cheaters who create accounts and join your clan just to block turrets/friendly-fire your units. This also requires trust among players who are cooperatively attacking. This already happens when multiple clans attack together. You can’t be 100% sure that the other attacker that belongs a different clan wouldn’t backstab you in the middle of the attack, so removing friendly fire doesn’t change anything for the real players because we already choose who we want to support or kill.

9) Clan Rankings would still be determined the same. (So a leader could choose to limit his guild to just one clan, if he wants that particular clan to win) Add Guild Rankings. All members within the guild have their infamy added up together to give that guild it’s infamy. (10 players in Guild Bananas all have 5k infamy each, giving Bananas a 50k infamy) Now two rankings can be determined; the best clan – in terms of infamy, and the best guild – in terms of infamy. The two are completely unrelated, as the top guild could easily have three players from all eight clans) Clan Rankings reset monthly, Guild Rankings NEVER reset.
