It tells you how many helps you have left when you help someone. That little window that pops up with resources also gives # of helps left.

Back on topic.

The 300mil starting hp and increased coupon gain will only benefit this game.

Look at it this way. Stronger galaxies will use coupons for gems mostly since many of the strong players already have gear. Lower galaxies will use coupons for gear which will make them much stronger than they are much faster. More coupons benefit all and closes the gap between golders and non golders.

Avery, I agree with what you say. However, the truth here is, while some may not buy any of the newly released gear; there are still MANY who will. With each new gear they buy, they will then buy new enhances. In the long run, PM makes much more with a fully paid lvl 60 gear and all new enhances than he would have made from letting you transfer your enhances. Just 1 person buying these new gear and new enhances makes up for 2-3 people transferring their enhances. Why? Because they will fail MANY gems. Now we know why the “safety patch” was only implemented for skills and NOT gems. Pm knew he was coming with better gear. He sure can’t make as much if he guarantees so and so, you will have a successful enhancement. Thats just the sad truth. We all know, no matter what, there are people out there who will never stop buying even if it’s ridiculous for them to do so. But hey, its their money. It’s just sad PM takes advantage of this but then again, this is a business after all. Look at how quiet he’s kept about all this? He’s not said a single word. He doesn’t care at all. Then he has the balls to say to private message him? Yeah, good luck with that.

Well, my point was that if 300M health benefited weaker players, why are the only people supporting the higher pillar health strong players from the top 3 galaxies?
It’s because it doesn’t.

You keep say top3 top3….but dude, without the top 3 pillars will never go down. Low or high HP..they are needed. Don’t complain about spending ap on pillars. Do you know how many people in those top galaxies spend EVERY SINGLE ap on pillars? You want the rewards without doing the work…thats just lazy. If you want coupons, you better spend all your ap on pillars so ensure that your galaxy places. Galaxies are good for a reason; its all team work and organization. Everyone wants to pvp and get resources but if you want coupons, you have to hit pillars instead. And yes, most of your ap if not all.

High HP on pillars only had 1 downfall: lower coupon gaining rate because they are falling slower. However, it reduces stress for having to time yourself to come when pillars are up. Yes, thats right, galaxies do this. You want to place, you better put some effort in.

okay

Let us just scratch off chps 8-14, all pvp, visits, and lvl 31+ buildings. Then, force EVERYONE at the end of chapter 7 to hit pillars daily. Would it go down faster? Yes. Is it player-friendly? NO

Well, guess what? This is what a lot of people in those top galaxies do. You want to rank? Pay the price. Like I said, everyone wants to pvp and make resources and do chapters. But if you want to place well and get more coupons, well, you gotta hit! You think those top galaxies just magically have that much damage? Sure maybe a few of them are strong but not all of them are. Everyone sacrifices. If you don’t, you aren’t going to rank.

If you don’t want to spend ap on pillars, stop complaining about it. If you choose to spend your ap on pvp or chapters, so be it. Don’t complain when you can’t place. In fact, when pillars had high hp, lower galaxies didn’t place 1,2,3 but hey, they did so much more less work and STILL got coupons.

Instead of lowering pillar hp, PM should increase coupon reward per hit on pillar. Instead of 60, make it 80 or 100, then maybe more people will hit.

Oh wait, you gotta private message PM!!!!!! He said so…..remember? :) I’m not sure why we still use this thread, I think we’re suppose to private message him our ideas and feedbacks. He said he takes the time to answer them in another thread. Just don’t ask him about mechanics. ;)

Well its not just that. It’s the fact that PM didn’t respect his players who supported him. As you can see, he kept quiet and never responded to this. He just doesn’t care. Also, you know what this means right? It means that coupons items will also go up in stats. There was no more room for PM to go unless he upped gold items. Which means the new coupon items – coming easter – will be almost as good as a lvl 50 purple. The christmas ones (weapon) had 55c/55w so easter will be higher than that unless PM goes with bodies/neck. This just makes the lvl 50 perfects less and less valuable.

We do the best we can to accomodate for players’ feedbacks after major updates or expansions. For example, the removal of the friends bar, adding new tech/building levels, lowering difficulty of insane staudt, adding better rewards for chapter 14, and lower HP of pillars. Sometimes we make changes between expansion as well to address problems such as the merge-pillar exploit and adding guarantees to skill upgrades. If someone do have a different opinion for what other expressed on the forum at any time, please do speak up so we know your opinion, so there is no surprises when we implemented a change which we thought was desired by the majority represented. If you don’t feel comfortable posting on the forum due to the hostile environment (sometimes we do not comfortable posting on the forum either, even though we posted around 600 responses in this forum last year), please feel to send me a private message instead so we know your thoughts.

I am aware there are been suggestions of other ways to fix the pillar issue other than adjusting HP, but we were unable to implement a better solution this expansion. For now, I have set the starting HP to 210m as a compromise between the two sides. This should be a good projected natural adjustment increase based on increased hero level/strength and newer techs. Also, the max HP is still significant higher now so there is room to adjust starting HP in the future if needed, and galaxies can donate ahead of time to increase their pillar HP significantly.

If anyone has further issues on this or any other question/issues they want to bring up regarding the expansion or Time World in general, please feel free send me a private message. I usually try to respond to all inquiries within day or two, unless I am traveling or on extended break/trip (like earlier this week) . We are currently understaffed on the support side right now, but we are in the process of hiring another GM to help me with the moderation of the forums and providing more prompt responses to our players.

Really interesting comments made by PM. I’ve known and heard from ALOT of people who have sent you private messages only to be ignored. Are you asking for private messages so hat when you ignore them no one knows? We do talk you know….

Thank you for your feedback, there is a chance it will be taken into consideration.

In addition, with each of your posts that have successfully resulted in a game change, the chance of your future posts resulting in a game change diminishes.

For every player PM sucks in, there is a CHANCE he can make money.

For every sucker PM tricks, there is a CHANCE he can make money.

For every new update PM makes, there is a CHANCE he can make money.

For every gap PM creates between golders and non golders, there is a CHANCE he can make money.

For every time PM doesn’t respond, there is a CHANCE he can make money.

As Lincoln once said:
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

I hope we now understand why PM doesn’t respond.

Thanks for all the reports, we are looking into all unresolved issues.

Regarding the mass email spam – this seems to be intentionally sent as we could not find any code error that would cause it. I have manually erased all 329 spam messages.

I will ask the dev team to look into the free visit mechanism. If the task has already been completed/cancelled, then it designed not to work. But if it reached max help limit but the task still exist, the original design (which the update note is based on) is that you still do the free visit but do not help. I have not been informed that this mechanism was changed by my dev team…

I think TEO was being sarcastic about it being “an accident”… He’s asking you to prevent this type of spam from occurring in the first place like maybe blacklisting notthisfing as an automatic function of the game?

PM really took that post seriously? Wow…I would have thought it was crystal clear it was sarcasm…..very interesting….

I find it funny that since it wasn’t “stealing” or “exploiting” that costs PM gold/$, nothing was done except…hey, let me remove those mails for you…..veeeeery interesting. It’s still going on today apparently (look at post above)….PM, its time for you to go delete mail again….and pls be prompt as he can only keep 15 pages! Hurry! PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

P.S. – incase it wasn’t clear, I was being sarcastic at the end there :)

I am also for the 300M starting HP. It’s definitely nice to have a pillar up at all times. A LOT less stress.

WHY do we have that friend bars anyways? Did you (PM) base on the statistic of people getting to friends’ planet (I personally never)? Or did you base on some popular feature request? Or is this just an idea of some smart devs?

We received an request to add friends ranking, and we figure porting the friends bar which already exists in the FB version would be best way to show that as well as allow faster access to visit friends. Like I mention in the previous post, if mass majority of players do not like the bar after trying it out, we can ask Kongregate admins to help disable it by reducing the height, but it will be disabled for everyone.

Originally posted by playmage:

As I mentioned before, there is no way to toggle Kongregate’s game frame height by preference without hacking their page scripts. Since mass majority of players rather see it removed instead of using it as a feature, I have contacted Kongregate and requested them to set the game height back to original height so it will be hidden. It might take few more hours before the process the request.

I’m just REALLY curious who sent in the request to add a friends bar? As you said so yourself the MAJORITY of the player don’t want it! I’m not asking who so that we can hang them. I want to know who because apparent YOU listen to that person! What is so special about that person? Do we need to write him/her to write you to have requests taken?? Will you listen and respond then? Or maybe, its not true and you never got a request…..hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

He doesn’t get as much gold though. Fact is I know several people who planned to spend until this patch changed their opinion.

the game is a casino trap. People will still spend because, like most casino’s, the game is designed to take advantage of the weakness people have and exploit them. Someone posted a thread with a link to how/why games are addictive. This game does them all! Very shady business practices. This game is only as fun as long as you continue to get some enjoyment out of it. If it’s not fun anymore, MOVE ON! Why are people even/still playing it then if they aren’t having fun?

I think many stay because they HAVE spent so much on this game already. I agree with Beli completely. I’ve not met any developer with so much greed. They can care less about their players. They just see us as cash cows who will pay for their bill. Sadly many have
spent so much, it’s hard to walk away. The amount some have spent on this game can buy you years of other MMOG’s like WoW. And let’s be honest here; TW comes no where near WoW, in every aspect. Many of us got sucked in and its hard to stop once you start spending but I think it’s time. With this new expansion, everyone clearly see PM can give a rat’s ass about his spenders and loyal players. I think many agree that they will never touch anything with PM’s name on it.

Maybe PM knows tw is dying and so is advertising his new game. Just like he did in DW. Many came to TW because of the DW promo. Now he is trying to shift us to his new game. Unbelievable.

1. My idea is more likely to be taken seriously since it makes PM more gold. Use your head here, it’s a business so it has to benefit both sides.

2. I’m not even going to comment on this anymore. This is what you do, detour topics and then it gets ignored.

3. Reading comprehension from you is funny when you couldn’t understand what I wrote in the 1st place. Enough said.

I’m done with going back and forth with you. It is pointless as this topic was directed towards PM in the 1st place. If we don’t stand together, it’s retarded. And we expect PM to listen. Please.

Topic: Time World / Wasted Equipements

I don’t know where your brain is nvil. My idea is not new, its the same as what is being done by PM’s other game DW. You fuse ONE lower lvl weapon into a higher lvl one. You lose SOME enchances but not all; making the lvl 50 items that are fully enchanced much more useful AND at the same time keep ppl in the game.

Thats a funny statement coming from you about being respectful. You’ve already lost all credits there. Taking things so seriously and telling me I act like an asshole when you yourself has no match in that department. I don’t usually say much but when something is way out there, I call it out. PM not taking lvl 50 equipments into consideration….is wrong, pure and simple. If those with lvl 50 items would speak up, it’s easy to see how people feel.

Oh, and adelaine is logical/respectful? I think she can go either way depending on her mood as can be seen from her previous posts.

Topic: Time World / Wasted Equipements

You are making it way more complicated than it should be. It’s a simple fix. Allow a fusion from lvl 50 gear to lvl 55 and 60 gear. Simple as that.

Of course lvl 50 gear is still good. Thats NOT the point here. People spend tons of money to enhance their lvl 50s. To have to start all over because they want lvl 60 gear is ABSURD. This shows absolutely NO respect for the consumers nor care. Sure, new people might come and gold…but PM will most likely lose his old golders. Maybe he thinks the golders won’t gold anymore and is gearing towards newer people. I just think it’s plain wrong.

Next you know, PM will come up with a NEW tier of heroes and making all your lvl 10 skills void on your purple heroes. I wonder how you’d feel about that? Its really the SAME concept here.

At the very least, PM should allow a partial refund for the lvl 50 gears. After all, its like buying a house, or car, or whatever expensive things. You can always sell it or trade it in.

Adelaine, I don’t get you. You complain that PM is money hungry and will only reply when gold/money is concerned, etc etc. Then you make an apology thread and in some way defend PM here. You also said you were done and wasted too much money and now you’re talking about your “next splurge.” You are entitled to your opinions but make up your mind!

I am however, not buying gold again until this is possible.

I agree with this 100%! This is ridiculous. People spend thousands to buy those level 50 equips and to level the enchances. Now you expect them to just throw them away and buy new gear?! Wow, this is the most insensitive thing I’ve ever seen done in a game by the developers. Goes to show they don’t have any of their “customers” in mind. I am now curious to see how many will leave because of this. It’s really not a hard fix for PM but the question is: Does he care?
