Dear Gustapin, We wil put the troop turkey back. If everything goes well, I think it will be back in our next week’s maintenance. :)

Yeah… the keywords there are “If everything goes well”, okay guys.. looks like we’re not getting turkeys back for a while.

Hey guys,
I’ve already spoken to one of the Admins, he said that they are no longer planning to make pumpkins expire, after seeing all the player outrage. So you will be able to keep them, don’t stress guys.

Why they haven’t officially said anything about it yet is beyond me though.

Dear gbaz69, thanks for your suggestions, I have noted them down and will submit them to the devs for their consideration.

Translation: Ignored as the many other suggestions….

In all seriousness… Some of these suggestion that come in are things that take very little time to implement and would vastly improve the game.

The rebalancing of classes doesn’t have to be something that takes days and days of thought… Rebalance it a tad every week until people stop complaining.

Putting requested things in the mall so that you can make more money I wonder why isn’t done instantly. Noone buys the frags, because it takes too many frags to recast. It has been suggested many times to rebalance this.

All the lvl 100s are constantly complaining stones are impossible to get by without paying. And with the latest hidden “change” in the spins it is near impossible paying also.

Fixing weird mall prices like the 500k gold being more expensive than the 200k gold is something that should have been fixed months ago. And it still isn’t possible to buy large quantities of gold outside the spin packages.

Fixing weird tooltips for the items in the mall so that people actually know what they are buying would also be something that should be done instantly. “Can obtain x gold Ingots and x coupons for valentines day”, suuure everyone can understand that this means you will buy x times 200k gold plus x spins in the darkness package… Or not.

Noone spins the upper level caves because they are way way way too expensive for little value.

Don’t “suggest” things to the “devs”. TELL them what is required!

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

As a GM on Frost, these points listed above are the main things people have been asking about for months. Please listen to your players and take the time to implement some of these wonderful ideas. Players are starting to lose hope and give up suggesting altogether, because nothing suggested is ever implemented.

Yeap, this was a starting point for the slow decline of the game due to losing a lot of the big spenders.

Originally posted by pzweig:

There isn’t really a good reason for longer cool downs or for rewarding players for being on for 3 hours straight… They are even contradictory. The three hour reward encourages players to leave the game running all the time. The increasing length of fight cool downs encourages players to stop playing for the day and go do something else. I think we all know what the 3 minute fortify timer does… It would make more sense to allow players to play quickly and do everything they can for the entire day in a couple of minutes so people log in once, get everything done, and get back off. Each day’s gameplay starts out at its funnest point since you can act quickly and you always have something you can do. At some point, you just have a long timer for battle and a short timer for fortify. Clicking the fortify button over and over every 3 minutes doesn’t even make sense. You upgrade 50 pieces of equipment 200 times and have to wait 3 minutes for each upgrade and have a chance to fail each time… That is 30,000 minutes of just waiting to click the same button again. I guess you could just check who has all the equipment upgraded to level 200 and just ban them for using automation.

Ban for automation, why? People, like myself, do infact rush the fortification cooldowns. Forting an item from 100 to 200 costs 300 diamonds (and completely removes the waiting times), for people who spend a bit on this game, that isn’t much.

Dear Shadowland players,

Happy Halloween in advance! Here you can expect a blood-burning week with some exciting updates and events,starting fromthis weekend to the Halloween holiday.

Updates
Reincarnation system (available from Oct. 25th): Players above level 100 can usethis system to have their heroes reincarnated, and the heroes’ attributes will be increased. The difficulty of 25 instances is increased for reincarnated players to play.

Events
1. Harvest Halloween (11: 00 p.m. Oct.25th- 11:59 p.m. Nov.1st):Farm the pumpkin seeds to get the pumpkins, which can be used to increase your hero’spower, agility, intelligence, physical or magic defense or drop rates of items.These items cannot be sold out in the auction house or stolen by other players like other plants.
2. Double BA (12 a.m. Oct. 26th – 11:59 p.m. Oct.28th): BAs obtained from legion battles will be doubled.

See you in the game. Cheers!

Sounds good! Really looking forward to the reincarnation system, kind of hoping it doesn’t put your heroes back to level 1, training them up to level 100 was insanely slow. :(

Here’s a suggestion that will probably save your game from dying the slow death it appears to be dying on Frost:

Make Spirit Stones available for purchase in the store. And don’t rip us off for them.

We have at least 13, probably more like 20 pieces of gear we would all like to fort up to +200. This includes 5x armor, 5x HoT, 3/4x weapon or book, 5x shield, necks, perhaps some rings, etc.

This is prohibitively expensive right now, where the only way to get stones is through Pluto spins, where you are hoping for a booby prize and not a main prize!!

Set the price of stones around 5d per 10 spirit stones (i.e. 5d per fort), and it will cost 500d to buy the stones to get a piece from +100 to +200 (plus the gold cost). Times twenty pieces and it’ll cost somebody around 10k to get very strong, at least 6k to get comfortably strong for 12 pieces.

That’s still a large diamond outlay ($200 – $300) but it’s not so large that people will get frustrated and quit.

The biggest mistake you can make right now is to put stones in the store at a prohibitive price (such as 10d/10 stones, or even higher). The pace of progression right now for those at T1 legion has slowed to a crawl (I personally farm T1 legion as much as possible, and stones otherwise, and a typical day for me consists of 3 post-100 forts and nothing else of use) — and to give back a little hope to people is a very good idea right now.

Or increase the drop rate amount of stones so that it’s actually possible to obtain a decent amount without buying diamonds. That way people can feel like they have a reason to farm stones and not feel that the only way to obtain them is through spinning the wheel.

Please increase the drop rate for stones to 100%.

A good average number of battles/day is 40something. Assuming 40 battles/day and a 100% drop rate, that is 4 forts/day a person could gain using Spirit Stones. With 5 characters and 10 items per character, it would take 1,250 days (about 3.5 years) to max out all the current equipment.

Obviously the rationale for having low drop rates is the devs want to keep players playing (and paying). I think you and they would agree that even at 100% rate, 3.5 years is plenty slow enough, and the people paying will still pay to get ahead faster. At the 30% or so rate stones drop at now, imagine the insanity.

Oh, and take out the Empty Chests in Crazy Adventure.

Yeah, I agree with this, increase the drop rate to 100% and make each floor drop 1 more stone, I.E. floor 1 = 1 stone, floor 2 = 2 stones, floor 3 = 3 stones, etc. Either this or leave the drop rate as it is, starting at 30% and maxing at 100%, but change the amount dropped from 1 to 5 or something.. the current drop rate is silly, as ksigkid said, it’d take years to get gear up to +200 with the current drop rate.

Originally posted by BenchBreaker:

the reason you are not even getting 50% back is that they only refund what you spent from 11th to 26th of Aug, but the feature was introduced on the 9th!

so if you spent only during the 9th-10th you are out of luck, here is what devs told me:

You spent 750 diamonds on reset, 634 diamonds on baptize and 1850 diamonds on purify. all the data are exported from the database.

this above is from 11th to 26th Aug so they know exactly how much you spent. when I asked about 9th-10th they said:

as devs just changed your attributes to normal high, not the base stats, so compensation is only available from AUG 11st to Aug 26th. Really sorry about that.

and we all know ‘normal high’ is just random bapt with 1 set of purifies which is WORSE than what we had before the 9th, before we spent a penny on the reset feature!

Well, good game then. I know of at least 5-6 big spenders on Frost who have quit because of this, after spending hundreds of dollars and getting only 25-30% of it back. On top of that, there’s quite a few more who aren’t going to buy diamonds until this is dealt with. I guess it’s ZqGame’s loss..

It’s a shame… in the end, all they’re are losing out on is players, money and respect. :/

Also, why did you only count the 11th-26th? The reset bug was introduced on the 9th, lots of people would have spent most of their diamonds on the 9th-10th. That’s most likely why people are saying they didn’t get 50% back… because you didn’t include the whole period.

This is correct, except it capped at 130 stats, not 1200.

I think I have lost stats on 3 of my hero’s, I have no idea whether it was between those dates. I don’t log and record everything I do on the game in case I need it later.

To be honest on this one, No I can’t understand this decision at all. I don’t see how nerfing stats changes anything considering the high power gear you recently brought in and the new fort cap of 200. I definitely don’t understand why players would only get 50% back for a bug caused by the game and a change you want to make resulting in their loss.

I know several players have allready said this is the last straw, and hearing they will only get 50% back on their loss won’t help much either. From a GM’s point of view it feels like the devs are killing the game right now.

I agree as well, my main and 3 of my heroes have all lost quite a bit of stats, to the point where I’m going to have to reset and bap/purify them again. Some people, like myself, spent upwards of 5-6k diamonds.. that’s nearly $200. To only receive 1.5k diamonds (barely 30%) back, it’s kind of unfair, considering ZQGame has already got our money, we’re not asking for it back, we’re asking for the diamonds back we paid for. You’re literally screwing over players out of hundreds of dollars.

Do the right thing and give everyone affected a full refund, 100%, not half. Show us that you actually do care about the players who support your game and buy diamonds. :/

That’s how GM’s get ‘additional pay’… Cheating the arena with alt accounts:

http://kg3.zqgame.com/wos/wosplay.php?play_report=6407286

We use the arena as a different way for people who wish to donate gold to our Alliance, since all our techs are maxed, donating gold directly to the Alliance is a waste. As to who that player is, I have no idea, it’s definitely not an alt of mine, I can’t control who attacks/donates to me, so to directly assume it’s me farming alt accounts is a little unfair. What’s to stop you from making an alt, attacking me in the arena and posting it on the forums claiming that I am cheating to get me banned? Nothing at all. Infact, your name is even ‘ConfuriCheats’, you made an alt account JUST to post this.

Also… you may not realise this, but our ‘huge gm payment’ is less then $40 a month in diamonds.

and another funny part is that only the attacker and the person who got attacked can see thoose fights and since you have one means you made an account to get “proof”.
and if it works everyone can make an account. fight a good person in the arena. screencap the loose and accuse them for abusing and then get them banned.
okey so everyone can make an alt, and go ahead and accuse everyone for abusing and get everyone banned. GENIUS!

Was the sarcasm Gustapin probably referred to. But let’s not argue/fight about this please.

Topic: Shadowland Online / Frost crypt rushing

Didn’t loan them gear, they bought it from me. I’ve got everything max forted, everything is +100, therefore I fort other things up to +100 and sell on the AH for a profit. I, uh, don’t see a problem with that? I never “rushed” anyone through. It’s just taking advantage of being lv100 and having everything maxed. Otherwise what would I use my fort timer for? May as well put it to good use as an extension to my Ally’s power. Lmao. :)
