Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] This game is dying

lol Do you all really take yourself as that important? Just because you quit a game it is dying? Maybe you should realize we all are just a small part individually. Don´t get me wrong, I am dying for new content to get me back to be an active player like the egg stuff did for a while. But as long as they are investing time into this game (which they still do) rest assure they still have the player base they need to keep it profitable. I still see new players in the chat left and right, so if 5 of you leave and 5 new players join why would they care and how the f is that a dying game? Maybe it is dead for you, still as someone mentioned it was fun while it lasted for the most of us which is all I ask of a game. And crying about having invested money is still to this day and for all times an invalid argument if no developer forces you to do it. Show some balls and blame the only person responsible for spending the money, yourself! If you expect a new and worthy follower to D2 (no, Diablo 3 does not exist!) on a flash game platform you are delusional! At least for the near future. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tl;dr: As long as they work on the game they are just doing fine, some people just take theirselfs as a gift to grace some games with their time and when they leave that means the game will die soon! -_-

Then why haven’t Nexon done anything about it? If they lowered the price more people would buy them and thus they would make more money.

Because everybody is just wrong, it´s not even the majority. And lower prices = more money is not true as well. They are smart enough businessmen. The reason the prices are not lower is as simple as it gets: It works for them! The moment noone (or not enough) buys keys anymore is the moment they a) make a sale event to squeeze out the last profits, or b) they dump them and/or add something new. (Beware, made up numbers!) They do not care if 1 player buys for 100 kreds or 2 buy for 50 kreds, and no, you can not expect a third party adding another 50 and making it a better revenue for them. Might happen once, but on the other hand you will have times when only 1 buys and you miss out on 50. Bigger picture (in which each of us is only a smaaaaall fragment) shows they are doing fine since they are still investing time in the game.

Tldr: The price is ok and will only change when they feel like they would benefit big time (which they wouldn´t) and not because any player thinks it should be cheaper.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Why is the Wiki not sticky?

Been a while since I looked at the forums, and just wondered why the Wiki is not sticky here!? All the contributors did an awesome job and it covers all FAQ and useful information.

Just saying it deserves to be mentioned imo. Guess there will always be newer players and Kong forums are not that userfriendly when it comes to searching older stuff. ;)

Btw: http://grinns-tale.wikia.com/wiki/The_Grinns_Tale_Wiki just in case…

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / "Disconnected"

Keyword “Beta”. It´s not that I like the way it is, just stating facts. Some games keep the “Beta” tag for years, imo it should be max 6 months. If you publish a game and still need more than 6 months to test it you did something wrong!

Still noone is forced to use money and this game is not 100% p2w so far.

Lol @compensation! Like in any other game you are not entitled to compensation for money (kreds) spent on a game.

Normally I don´t care about what others do but seriously? Surely you made this after having a night with a lot of drinks and maybe other substances, I see. Or maybe you wanted to play the comedian? Anything but please don´t tell me you are serious.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Using Pixie Dust

You get asked when crafting an item like with using refined items for a better chance. If you use both refined items and the dus there will be two windows where you can choose to use. The dust is only consumed though if the item turns out refined.

refined shaman paint (+2 speed, and I think the berseker can’t use this one)

I agree with your post, but the shaman paint works on all heroes.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Premium items

I second Seizan_7, as dev you want to keep people playing! And with a t5 or even better premium set many people buy once, rape the tower and sidequest monsters the hard way and consider the game done.

With the additional items for current sets you can make your heroes pretty strong already, but alone they aren´t enough. With that said, I wouldn´t riot if they made such sets since it is no real multiplayer but I don´t think it is necessary at all.

LOL
Frenzied Fire Eater has total of 30 defence. Good luck tanking with that instead of t5.

since i like my zerkers as tanks i rather not use it

t5 has better set bonus than t4 and, unless I’m mistaken, allows you to wear t4 hat, which accounts for almost 50% of def from t4. I see all upside to full t5 sprinkled with t4.

Well TZwien didn´t say he uses the zerk to tank in that post. With his suggestion to get t5 knight I think he will go for the defense over the hp which I will do as well btw.

ZaraThustra1883, today, 10/23, I used a item shop level 4 with 36 tower levels completed and ordering a revive potion from there I rallied 30 times to get 10 scarfs.

Man I must have had a real unlucky streak yesterday. Now I can confirm. Just got 2 scarfs from it as well. Thanks for the info. ;)

Old scarf use to be very rare, but I notice that with an item shop, rally gets them like crazy… did a revive potion for 1 hour, rallied it finished and got 10 old scarf

Since I had nothing important to rally atm I double checked this. 90 AP and not a single scarf from the item shop. I think they killed it completely for now again. But maybe you still refer to some days ago?

Originally posted by Lordian:

Why only scarves? Reduce the scarves drop rate and add socks.

It´s a real phenomenon! People cry about something, it gets solved and what happens? No not thank you for listening to us, we want more. Now rally drops scarfs and socks, few hours later it will be "Why only scarfs and socks, make it drop rubies as well and so on. Maybe try being grateful for what you get, you might notice how nice it can feel.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Unlocking all the areas

What I´d like to know is if it´s possible to unlock the complete map by playing. Since there dont seem to be many quests anymore and not many floors left and (so far) not a single Zoning Permit dropped from the GD for me, and the fact that the next one costs me 4 which might go up even more…..you see where it´s going.

I know from the chat, some people dont care about how their village looks but I do. And right now I don´t have the space to get more hero guilds to speed up crafting or more then 2 shops and so on without messing up my village.

Question: Do the floors 39+ have some permits as reward and/or has the GD dropped some for anybody so far?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] 2-day Skull Mask promotion

Well, no developer will ever be able to please everybody at the same time no matter what they try! If the game isn´t for you, there are tons of others on Kong or if that´s better for you just play it on facebook and make tons of fake friends for a game.

For me its fine that they give a chance to active players to get an item without pramins for a short time they could have easily put into the premium shop right away. Shows they know how to please those how spend more time on this game then on others.

Now back to rallying for me since I need some more screws and nuts for a second mask. :) I am sure you will find a game you will like soon, good luck with it.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] <TO DEV> marketplace building

Originally posted by TZwien:

I’m not stuck. Late game just takes a thousand times longer to play than early game. Having to grind for days and accumulate resources for weeks makes the game almost unplayable. Some people might like that, though.

Yep, and it makes sense since as developer you want to have people playing your game for a long time so you can tempt them more often to buy premium stuff.

And personally I find games boring I can beat in a week. To the Topic, if the devs will implement such a marketplace they will have even more crying because most people will cry if they dont get 1000 wood and metal each for like 10 brooms! And it would probably be more like 500 brooms for 1 ruby or something like that. Main source is and should stay mills and mines for regular ressources and persistant grinding for crafting items, period!

If your problem is that you went for that “all trades” achievements and just now realized you can save ressources by leaving at least one class below 6 to feed them croissants….well now that´s bad luck.
