Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Server discrimination by NOG

Ye gods, every time I reread this thread I get more surprised at the attitudes of some Kong players.

1) it was a trial. It also didn’t work particularly well, I had to stop raiding due to the “reward”, several creatures nearly died, suspend all payday effects for 24 hours, inculding healing? Yeah, that’s useful.

Given what happened last time they suspended paydays for a few hours some of you would’ve been kicking up a stink about unwanted “rewards” that killed your creatures. Sometimes, something can be done easily on one server that’s not so easy on another, Facebook makes it easy to share daily gifts, and the daily gift mechanic was used for the rewards, ergo the rewards wouldn’t be as easy on a game platform that doesn’t have the “spam me with gifts” mentality that Facebook has.

2) Goblin Keeper is a licensed version of the game runa nd hosted by an EU based games company predominantly marketed at the German and UK markets, NOG gets royalty payments. I note no one ever complains about the longstanding licensed version of the game that’s been running in Korea for more than 6 months now, again by a different company, but a German/EU version is worth complaining about.

Why is everything discrimination or an attack on Kong players instead od simply a small company trying to provide a fun game on limited resources and running trials on a small scale sometimes? If Kabam gets something Kong doesn’t will you complain about that as well?

I’d have much rather not had the “reward” or the competition, and if the reward is the same next time I’ll try to avoid it thanks muchly, or just take the day off from playing. That’s the sort of feedback they needed.

Wasting time downgrading rooms is wasting time. If you downgrade everything you still have to ship it out, the time wastes is rarely worth it. Ergo suggestion is werid and almost certainly not possible to implement without a lot of extra work.

Currently, all dungeons are PVP enabled, this patch makes defending your resources far too easy in a non-enabled base, cowards win over actual players of a PVP game. Meh, virtually all my bases’ll be pvp enabled because they need to be to survive, if you can’t defend your resoruces you need to learn how.

You still haven’t got stonegating? Even I’ve got that now, and I set it as my lowest priority amongst the mid range techs, I’ve had it for nearly 2 weeks now. Have you even bothered, as an alliance leader, to find out how to actually be passably not awful at this game?

and no one ever said anything against it :P

Apart from all the posts in here that did?

Seriously, you want to recruit in region 1, region 2, and region 4, and you’ve set a minimum power requirement of “not bothering really, might as well quit” for players from those regions?

You’ve no clue about the history of the regions, you’ve not got leadership in those regions, and you don’t know how to even look yourself?

this is a ridiculously stupid approach to running an alliance, and frankly more than a little bit suicidal. Don’t even think of recruiting in Angel Vale or Trident, I’ll, personally, have something to say about that.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Retaliation

They raid a random room, if there’s stuff there to steal, they’ll steal, but if there isn’t, or the room can’t be stolen from, they won’t.

The size of reprisals scales with how much hate you’ve generated, in the early game, it should be manageable,b ut you need to watch hate levels on all the forts. This has more detail:

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Advanced Player Combat.

Aye, from what I’ve seen, most users, regardless of server, don’t read stuff that’s there in the game, let alone go to forums.

I got the email, it was fine, it was mostly links to other stuff and summaries.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Leather Raiding- a beginners guide

Edited, I tried raiding a T2 with 3 level 30 thieves, and even with a level 4 tavern they don’t get much loot and come back battered and bruised. 3 level 40s are fine though.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / 2nd Dungeon Design

Jock, TBH it’s not something we agree on, every player past a certain point likes different approach, and different bases need different approaches depending on what they’re for.

And the way I do it confuses most of my closest allies and best players ;-)

It is a good thing to have a proper discussion on, I’ll see if I can get some screenshots uploaded.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Game crashing from profiles

Still an issue, on all three servers. Sometimes, the links at the top grey out and I’ve not figured out when or why, if that happens you can’t click any of them (especially the Worlds link, but none of them work), and if you click onto a profile or alliance page you can’t get back at all.

It’s not happening all the time, but is happening in both Fx and Chrome from what I can see, and I check Pepper is disabled regularly so it’s none of the usual suspects.

(good break?)

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Girls of the Dungeon

Boom, if it was just adolescent males I’d agree completely, but it’s not, sometimes it’s fully grown adults older than me. There are some people that want gaming to be their “safe space” away from women. an attitude I do not understand at all, but some people are stupid, and some of them are otherwise functional adults.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Suggestions thread

GK, personally I prefer one thread per substantive suggestion normally, but as we only have one busy area I think smaller one off suggestions work best here, but it’s really up to Harlan and Pellets.

The market needs a complete revamp, and has needed it for ages- a few months back they had two different ideawall votes for players to decide prioritires in development, Alliance Chat won the first (and we got the Thing at the bottom that’s too annoying to use), and the PVP revamp and campaign game won the second-that’s a big job they’ve nearly finished.

When the next vote comes up, I shall be lobbying hard for all players, especially players that’ve started recently and rely on teh market, to support alliance revamp, it’s so horribly bad that I forget it’s there half the time.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Possible trap bug. Fake traps.

It’s a client bug with crafting and it seems to happen fairly randomly, the server knows it’s not there but the client is convinced otherwise, if it happens again take screenshots and send them to support, it’s what I try to do.

Almost certainly by mistake, the Confine has one and I’m sure I’ve had them in the past.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Alliance Chatrooms

Any alliance that doesn’t have any requirements or specifications isn’t worth joining. CHAOS requires you be in a region we’ve claimed and have a recruiter appointed, and fulfill certain power/dungeon # requirements, as well as be interviewed and have layouts that at least aren’t ugly/stupid.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / development tree

Clik, & others, REALLY, ignore the Referata wiki, it’s for Classic and has a LOT of incorrect information (that page linked has the wrong carry capacity for Dark Elves, for a start), the Wikia wik and the NOG official wiki on their site is much better.

Jnskott, apart from that, the in game future technologies tab in research is actually quite good, and the Wikia has a tech tree somewhere.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Line Breaks for In Game Messaging

You can’t do it, we’ve tried everything, it’s a limitation of the system-and yes, it’s very annoying and one of the reasons I avoid using it in favour of out-of-game setups like forums and facebook groups.

Topic: Dungeon Overlord / Game crashing from profiles

Yup, it’s not just profiles, it’s pretty much anytime you load a text screen instead of a flash screen for me, alliance pages, game profiles, etc. It’s not EVERY time, but it’s more often than not, it looks like the browser isn’t going back to the flash, you can still hear the FX and similar, just not see the game itself.

Very annoying when you know that inactve X has a dungeon you want to raid but can’t remember where it is, etc, let alonce alliance management stuff. I’ve got screenshots.

It appears linked to text links in general not working, I’m so used to using the Worlds tab to log in and out of sessions, and that doesn’t work a lot at the moment as well. I have screenshots to submit to support but I’m looking for a few more details first.

They actually are in the creatures tab, just not in an obvious place.

Click the critter you want the stats for, while in the dungeon. Then hover the mouse over their picture.

Seriously, the UI designer thought that was a good way to do it…
