Topic: General / [FIXED, ignore me] level 7 immortal

EDIT: fixed, HappySumo is gone from the list

Just looked at the Leader boards to see how good people were doing and then looked if there were any new immortals (yesterday there were only 2)

Indeed there was one new, a level 7 player… WHUT?!?

Could someone explain this to me, or is it just a hacker trying to get his minutes of fame?

I now did get a new question on hard, and WTF? ANOTHER betting question??
I got three questions for you:

1. How are you suppose to know the answer to something that isn’t sure. This isn’t knowledge, this is luck and that shouldn’t be for a QUESTION.

2. How do you plan on giving me my diamonds and me knowing about it (except for the fact that my diamonds go up)?

3. How do you stop people from just waiting till the event has taken place to answer the question?

For me it just got “fixed” I first got the first question who now had a “correct” answer (an underdog), and when I clicked the man again I got a second question that furtunately was a “know it”-question instead of a “bet”-question (which I also got right and got a second time 15 diamonds for)

I got nothing, there was no question, i gave no answer.
It seems to be bugged for me and for some others.
For some it seems to work ok.
Please fix ASAP

Doesn’t work on frost either, and yes I tried refreshing my browser and clearing my cache.

After I deposited an other 100 gold at my Alliance I could get the gold.

nafets112 ,
What’s your character name? And, which server are you playing at?

IGN: nafets
Server: Frost

also, today I tested it and when I should have 1 gold less then max after the gather, I could use it, so it seems that somewhere at the check there is a bug at:

if (new_gold >= max_gold) <——— This should be a > instead of a >=
{
throw error.to_much_gold
}

Suggestion:
Make other ways to get fragments, since I did some math and the time to get the (arguably) best items in the game for all your people would take more then 3,5 years, if you don’t spend any money.

Math here:
Total cost of one of each of the “Empire Hero….” items: 1622 fragments
OR if you choose to only get the sword or the book (and switch one of the rings for the other one) 1306 fragments.

If you then get all the fragments each day, you take 1622/5 (Or 1306/5) = 324,4 days (or 261,2) to get it for one person.

Multiplied by 5 persons it will take 1622 (Or 1306) days to get the items for all persons, which in the end equals to 4,44 (Or 3,57) years.

P.S. all the items in the set have a typo in their name. They all say Hreo instead of Hero

When the Capital battles end, there is always a rain of messages of Alliances who won and that they can collect food and gold from the Capital fields.
However the last part is always cut off.
I suggest having the initial messages only say what Alliances won in which area, followed by a single message saying something like: “Members of the winning Alliances in that area can gather resources at the Capital gold mine and farm.” (I checked and this message is short enough (for a private-message))

(please dont say different browser, that works but im used to firefox and this is what i have at work as well).

Few things I can think of you can try:
1. Log out of Kongregate, load the game, close the game, log in, log in the game again.
2. TRY it on an other browser to see if the problem lies in the connection or not. (don’t HAVE to keep playing on it of course :P)
3. if you have a 2nd account or know someone who also plays on K / SLO, try it on that account.

If that doesn’t work, sorry but I can’t help you further then :S

BUG: if you lose at the village, but don’t click the ok / accept (don’t remember what it really said) button on the “you lose” message and just close the window, and then come back later the “you lose” window is still there.

Also if you now click the ok/accept button, it resets the 4 hour cooldown timer :(
I found out the hard way, 2 minutes before it should reset :(

please at least fix that the ok / accept button does not influence the timer in any way.

Think about this: what do they have to delete? And more importantly what NOT?

They don’t just delete a small name from your account, but they have to remove that person from all the places it is mentioned (leaderboards / alliances) and they have to remove all the info of that person, so that if an other person chooses that account name, they start at the very beginning.

Also remember that, if they just delete everything, and the person did something against the rules, deleted the account, and just make a new one to continue doing it, it will never stop. Now if you break the rules, you can “lose” that account(-spot) if you get banned.

Hope I’m not saying anything incorrect and that this help give some understanding to you ppl.

The colors of the cooldown timers are all white except for one building timer. (army timer not in picture but white too)

Suggestion: have the possibility to “lock” your typing in a specific channel (aka, you stay in a channel, even if you switch the channel tabs UNLESS you specifically choose that channel from the menu next to your typing bar.)

This to prevent a lot of (irritating, and sometimes even win-ruining “wrong-chat” ’s).

Thanks a bunch if you implement this.

Friction88,
What’s your exact meaning of “currently selected building” please?

He means (at least I think so) the window of the building you have currently opened.

For example; if you have your town hall open and the build CD comes up, you now have to first close the town hall building to be able to upgrade the town hall to the next level.

(In the previous sentence, replace “town hall” with the name of every other building you have :P)

Travaell , can you tell us more details about the problem ? Thanks.

He means that on the Frost server there is someone who’s name displays
as “[World][GM][IceFox]:<his_message>”
this could mean two things:
1. he is a GM
2. he has the name “GM][IceFox” to have it in chat appear like he really is a GameMaster.

I think he means that it OR should be more clear that he really is a GM (different color name or so??) OR that the “]” and “[” symbols (and some more probably) are not allowed in names.

I found a small, non-game breaking bug.
When you look at the Region map and switch to “(Outside) Town” view and back, your position on the map is maintained BUT the red square at the min-map is set to the view you would see when you first come to the Region map (aka the view with your castle on it)
Picture of it here:

Suggestion: make the daily tasks for the village not count how many times you played it, but how much times you won a “round” (1 choise), possibly with a minimum of 1. This way, if you get a 80-100% boost (5/6 or 6/6 fight wins), you get all the bonus at once, but if you can’t win any you can still get the bonus with trying 5 times.

If that can’t be / isn’t done, I would at least suggest renaming the task and editing the description to something like:
Name: Town fight
Introduction: Attack the village outside your city to get bonuses for the marketplace.
Goal: Attack the village [[times]] ([[status]])

Topic: Shadowland Online / *** Suggestions ***

At the level I am playing at now it seems that BA’s are much harder to get then gold, so for me it only sounds reasonable that when you turn in BA’s at the Alliance you get more contribution for it then when giving gold.
Otherwise I would at least like the contribution to be seperated in gold and BA.


Next to the first suggestion I would also like some way to “dump” excess food (you can for gold / BA’s at the Alliance). This because if you have used all your market trades (+ village extra’s), have your army on full and on a long cooldown, and still don’t have enough room (for example if you want the daily gold for farming, or to farm the castle grainfield) you have no way to get it lower. I suggest:
A: a way to just remove parts of your grainery
or
B: be able to sell grain for 1gold/100(0) food
or
C: be able to turn the grain over to your Alliance for 1 contribution / 1000 food.

This Isn’t a bug, it is the time that the servers are in maintenance mode, aka you can’t log in and have to wait till the maintenance is done and they fixed any bugs / added new stuff.

If you look at the forum they always announce when there is going to be any maintenances, usually they are on Thursday between 03:00 to 05:00 a.m. EST (still hope they would call it in Server Time (too))

for more info visit here for info about this weeks maintanance and here for the main forum from SLO on kongregate, where you should look at the stickied topics

Suggestion: Is it an idea to have formation for fighting you don’t use at the moment to still level but at a much slower rate?
aka you get one point per fight in the formation you use, but for every 2/5/10/other number (don’t know how much, can be a balancing question) fights you also get one point in all / one of the other formation(s)
This way if you have to switch / want to try an other tactic, you don’t have to train from the ground up, to get a fair picture if a tactic is better then the current.

Ok thanks, than it seems I was just lucky with the training, but can there be some kind of indicator / message when you bought an upgrade / when it gets revoked? (even something as “simple” as a in game mail which says when you bought what and when it is over again)

It seems that my third building qeue got revoked before the 7 promised days were used up, I bought both an extra building and training qeue to speed up the working / training after I moved to the next area.

IGN: nafets
Server: Frost
Time of buy: don’t know for sure, but less than 7 days (also because the other qeue is still available and I bought them seconds apart.

Can someone check and fix / repay this?

thanks up front.

Making an other suggestion (this time probably a bit harder to do, but probably worth it in the end):

A pre-load function:
This will, while you are playing, load other parts of the game in the background:

  • Pro:
    • Less time loading area’s
    • Reduced overall stress on a server, since you can spread out the “handing out” of data more.
  • Con:
    • Sometimes unneeded data is send.
    • A bit more data storage required client-side.

If you do implement it, I suggest the following order of sending (priority):

  • Images of:
    • Outside town
    • Last used “Gate of Ages” area
    • Battle
    • Country map (map itself, followed by castle and then towns)
    • Sanctuary quests (when you have one)
    • World map
  • Data of:
    • Last used “Gate of Ages” area (what armies are visible / defeated)
    • Country map (where are there town, who owns them (just the names)

The rest of the data should be send on request to have the latest data since it can change any second, and the updates of the previous send data (so you may want to scrap some data send, to have the correct data the first time)

(not really sure how to explain it really any better)

nafets112,
Could you please make a screenshot? Thanks.

Sorry no, Already past the point, but I did find a screenshot on the wiki so I’ll post that link here http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111216180346/shadowlandonline/images/d/d7/SLO_-Quest_30_-Kill_Oddo_-routemap.png

at the 3d meeting point (not counting your starting point) you are required to go down to the first salamander and then up again to the second, even though there isn’t a real path for that, and the route 3nd meeting point <—> 2nd salamander can’t be taken even though it shows up in the picture as a path.

Also I see now that on the map there is a path from the 2nd “the fallen” (the one with the name tag) to the first salamander and you also can’t take that path.

My (easy to do) suggestion is to change the picture to skip a battle (the square) to a “real” skip sign, to prevent confusion.

With a "real"skip sign I mean a triangle forward with a bar at the end ( “>|” OR “>>|”)

I know some people who do not press that button (at first) because they think it lets them forfeit / auto-lose the match to quickly quit it.
