Sorry, but I can’t help but laugh. This kind of problem happned to me constantly and nothing had been done about making any part of it easier and I’m an (is cussing allowed here?) meany, but I’m glad that it’s happening to other people for a little bit at least. :)

I’ve been wanting somelike like this for a long time, I don’t think it’s going to happen. Really sucks for me since the game lags like crazy when trying to buy mass levels… :(

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Wow, the lag, ouch

Originally posted by Groundal:

Agree. Lots of lag when leveling up heroes. I posted a comment about that, suggesting to have a “buy max” or “buy x1000” levels to reduce the number of times the game has to lag. The devs answered they would do it eventually, but it didn’t seem like a priority at all.

I’ve heard many people asking for a better way to get that done (myself included) and one of my favorites is to make it based on money gained in the current run. Currently everything’s the same price anyways, and even if something’s added to reduce it I’m sure it could easily recalculate it based on that. thay way people like me that have major issues with the game right beore reseting would be able to play the game instead of waiting in front of a screen while it’s lagging.

I’m sorry for you. And I hope you didn’t misunderstand my post as arguing against your proposal. I just hoped it was a rather easy solvable issue. And it’s unsatisfying that it wasn’t. The 3Mb connection is good enough for getting the games assets, but your upload rate (which is what comes to action when data is saved) seems to be uncommonly low. I only have 1 Mb upload (which also is pretty low) and it is working fine.

I didn’t take it that way and I thank you for trying to help me.

Apparently my upload is around 700-800 Kbps, so I don’t think would affect it much if that was it. I know it’s low, but I also don’t think it goes lower unless others on my line are also uploading (DSL btw) which I guess may be the case with other households, but Idk.

I think it’s my router that’s having issues and needs to be replaced honestly, but I mean it’s working fine for 99.9% of what I do. This is the only non-downloaded game I’ve noticed ANYTHING like this going on and even among my faster paced online games they still aren’t affected this bad.

I’m not asking for a solution to this though, I just want a simpler way to finish a run, some button to automatically distribute your money easily, or it being calculated by gold earned this run seems like it’d be even easier, but I haven’t had so much as a response. Well I think the developer gave a generic message of “Thank you for your input!” but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to be added. Idk how long I’ll keep coming to check back hoping it is. I just saw a new patch and it didn’t have it either. :( I think I’m probably just going to stay until the idol shop comes out and if it’s not out by then I’m done.

@itsme0, why do you think it’s a poor internet connection? If you don’t use a 2400 baud dial-in modem, you should be safe. The amount of data sent is just a few bytes. Even this page alone has 100x more data than the communication of the game with the server.

You don’t use Chrome by chance?
If so, are you aware of the fact that the built-in pepper flash is buggy? You might then want to try another browser with an original Flash install from Adobe’s website.

Or maybe your processor is not fast enough. Since Flash doesn’t support multiprocessing, GHz is more important than the number of cores.

If your processor is close to 100% cpu load, it will also have influence on the internet communication (cpu is not ready, when game wants to save on server, “retrying request” will appear until the cpu can handle the task).

That’s a few things you could check.

Well Idk the specifics, but my connection goes in and out for a short while soemtimes. in online games it’s noticed bya few seconds of lag or getting “reset” a few seconds. Because of that I tend to stay away from any onine games that are fast paced. Also other games (such as one here on the rest of Kongregate) don’t have anything wrong with them since they load at first and nothing has to be sent.

My CPU usage doesn’t seem to jump when buying (which is when I usually have the retrying to conenct to server) so I don’t think that’s the problem. I have downloaded flash from the adobe web site and I use Firefox instead of Chrome because of habit.

As well as what seems to be my connection quickly going in an out, even with perfect connection I have very slow Internet speeds (about 3 Mbps). I think I’m in a kind of “Perfect Storm” that’s making this game nearly unplayable when I’m trying to distribute my money, but I haven’t had this problem anywhere else. On online games I rarely get kicked, but experience some lag, on games here I don’t notice anything, if I watcha video online it will sometimes only load up to a certain point no matter what, but this is the only thing I’ve had it be this bad.

All this is in conjunction to me wanting the leveling right before reset to be easier, even if it ran perfectly I’d still find it a pain. Besides all heros prices never change, so the developer should be able to calculate the cheapest cost for 500 total levels, 1,000 total levels, 1,500 total levels, etc and still be fine. I don’t think that’d give anyone much of an advantage since it’s better to restart relatively early and it fixes the issue that some may have with it locking up on us… well for right there at least.

At this point for me it’s obvious quick runs are better for farming idols, however since I have a poor internet connection this is difficult.

The game will lag with requests tot he server and every few moments say, “Retrying request” and during that time I can’t do anything. I can’t switch out crusaders, I can’t switch elvels, use skills (Which is REALLY annoying when you’re set to use multiple skills for a boss and it happens in-between using them) and so on. However the worst is at the end of a run when I have to try to disperse my money between my heros efficiently.

I swear, every few clicks the game will lag and make me wait a few minutes to do another few clicks to make me wait again. If I just buy heros until I can’t buy 100 anymore it takes nearly 20 minutes to distribute my money before resetting. Obviously this isn’t the most efficient as many times there are hundreds of more levels I could do with more time, how about 10 minutes more? It takes about 30 minutes to do it with any efficientcy and about 40 when I’m trying to be really efficient with my money.

This is what breaks the game for me, others will start to distribute their money after about an hour and have reset again in an hour and 10 minutes. However, if I start to distribute my money after about an hour it’s usually another 30 minutes until it’s somewhat efficient, up to 40 to be more efficient. All this time i’m active, if I go away then I do it slower, so it forces me to be active for about 30 minutes before resetting each time.

I’ve suggested multiple times to make an easier way to distribute levels across all crusaders, or change it a bit (such as money earned in the current run) but nothing’s been added yet. I’m pretty much just coming back once or twice a day leveling if I can and waiting to see if something gets added, until it does I’m not resetting because I find it a huge waste of time.

It’s a huge waste when you open a jeweled chest and the one epic item you get is a buff. There should not be epic buffs, only epic gear and trinkets.
For that matter, having 4 click-focused buffs and only 1 dps focused buff is bad design when clicking becomes nearly obsolete so fast.

They’ve already chaged that, and you’re not guarenteed an epic at all. Only rare or epic. That guaranteed rare or epic can’t be a buff anymore, but it can be a trinket so if it’s a clicking one it can be pretty much useless.

It’s a bit of a fail from the devs that you’re playing the game on a toaster.

People have suggested lowering the resources used by the game for a long time.

I like how all the advice kind of boils down to “don’t open chests, it’s a waste of time”
You can toggle the pause that happens when you open chests, so the game will play in the background

There’s an obvious concern with his system slowing down the game. You don’t really want to add anything in to slow it down more. So while it runs in the background do you think it runs at the same speed when it’s using more resources?

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Add 'Level lowest cost hero' button

Originally posted by hugoooo:

The idea of an idol for every 500 crusaders levels needs to be revamped. It actually doesn’t make sense. To buy more levels you need more gold, so idols relies on your gold earned on that run. Gold and DPS are tied up very closely: you need to raise your DPS to earn more gold and you need more gold to raise your DPS.

So, why not base the number of idols on your money or on your DPS? No more time-wasting post campaign completion, problem solved.

If this is the solution that gets implemented we’ll need to know how close we are tot he next idol. EIther by telling us the total money/dps needed for the next idol, or something similar to it.

I’m not saying I’m against this, just need to cover our bases, either way I hope something gets added soon.

Make it an upgrade for someone, or add the button on Nate’s reset upgrade and you’d be golden.

And i can’t let my computer run just for this…

I suggest to add an option that allow the players to remove daily quests !

WHat about when doing other stuff on the computer? Do you watch videos, check FB, online forums, or anything like that? I mean surely you don’t just get on the computer for this game, right?

@macc67

I think they mean to speed up the lower levels, so it would speed up the enmy encounter rate, but not the dps. So if you did X2 it would make twice as many enemies appear, but increase your damage by nothing, so it’d only be useful when flying past enemies. Of course if they did mean what you think they meant I agree with you.

@kromherjan

I like this idea, and I liked it last time it was brought up.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Suggestions

I think I’d like this game much more if you didn’t have buffs honestly. At least not as chest rewards since they keep you from getting items. I mean I was happy I managed to save up enough rubies for another jeweled chest only to be given 4 buffs, including the rare being a buff… :(

Can the way to get buffs bechanged to some low drop chance instead of from chests? It’s pretty heartbreaking to open a group of chests and get common items and rare buffs all the time, or getting an epic buff instead of an item. Thanks.

When they first came out they gave you three if you played for at lest that many days, it only gives one a day though, so it’s correct that you’re only getting 1 a day.

Usually a game will allow you to either make additional characters or delete your current ones though. I decided I would rather have one another class than the one I have but I’ll have to deal with one that’s weaker since I didn’t come to the conclusion at the beggining.

I think that you got leafs or something similar and could upgrade your stats, but I’m not too sure about that.

Drunk or whatever you were right, thanks!

That’s all I can remember, sorry.


Haven’t played it in a while, but it might be Edmus or something else that dev made. My mind is a bit blurry on the details, like two hours of drinkings worth of blurriness on the details plus or minus thirty minutes.
