This sounds very interesting.
When will it be out? Will the changes already affect this weekend’s raid? Because right now it doesn’t look like it.

Likely, sometime next week.

is it possible to tweak web/pc version for a much faster mouse scroll to navigate thru trade house etc? using mouse to slide thru trade house is quite tedious. thanks.

I like this idea, would definitely make the trade house less cumbersome on web platforms (in terms of scrolling).

Topic: Shop Heroes / Customer Visit rate suddenly became an Issue

Originally posted by atsiputes:

i refuse customers most of the time. basically they are coming in waves. the period with no customers always shifts to period with customers. not sure if selling an item or two makes them to come back

Selling items will reduce the return time (up to a certain point of course), yes.

I really enjoy the game but am unable to log in all of a sudden. The game was working fine on Saterday the 30th. My computer did a BSOD while the game was loading and now Everytime I try to play the game I get the please login or create a Kongregate account to play. Did something on my computer for the game get corrupted? Did I loose my game? How do I get back in?

I’m not sure why you are unable to access but I can assure that your game is not lost as it is stored on cloud servers and not locally on your computer. You might want to try updating your browser, computer, drivers and/or the unity web player.

Refusing customers is the only way to increase the return time for customers. So as long as you stop refusing customers they should start to return more frequently.

Hi, I have a bug with the building bonus : when I invest in a building, I have to refresh the page for my heroes to get the bonus. Do anyone else get it ?

The bonus is applied without having to refresh, you’ll notice this once you place your heroes in a party. Although, there is a display issue in which the bonus applied is not shown in the hero list when selecting heroes for your party but as I said before, once they are in the party you should see he boosted amount.

Thanks for info.
When you talk about sync i remember that I sync with my mobile but I cant sync with my facebook.
I try to sync it with facebook but it accidently start a new game.
Now I am trying to login with my facebook but it gives me a warning.

If I login to facebook from my mobile my old game will be deleted ?
If answer is yes, is it possible to delete the account/game i start from facebook.

Thanks.

Your Kongregate account/game can only be linked with a mobile device by using the Kongregate login option in the Settings menu. You cannot link your Kongregate account/game with Facebook.

As for your second concern, if you have accidentally linked your Facebook account/game to your mobile device your Kongregate account/game is NOT lost. It is still here on Kongregate.com and you can simply tap/press the Kongregate login button in the Settings menu again (on your mobile device) to re-link your account/game to your Kongregate account/game.

If you have any more questions or you still do not understand, please don’t hesitate to ask for more help.

Could I request that everyone in a city be able to gain weekly quest rewards regardless of whether or not they contribute? I know it doesn’t make sense at first, but let me explain.

There have been some heated arguments in some cities I’ve been in over one person rushing and completing a weekly quest before everyone in the city gets their chance to send out a party. When the Castle is low level, is very easy for the entire thing to be completed within a few hours, before people even get a chance to wake up in the morning. And it’s causing a lot of frustration and bad blood against new players that don’t know.

EDIT: Alternatively, you could implement the ability to send out a party and receive rewards after all goals are completed.

If a player has not participated and the city raid has been completed or locked, ANY player who has NOT contributed yet will be able to send 1 party. This change was made in a recent update.

Also, Cloudcade has stated that more changes will be coming to City Raids in a future update.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Shop Heroes Data Spreadsheet

We’ve recently revamped the Heroes sheet to make distinguishing different equipment pieces easier, along with some other minor improvements and additions.

We’ve also begun adding in some more information to the Item Directory (i.e. Recipe Types, which will replace the current color-coded system, for the most part).

Remember, if you have a suggestion please submit a form using the link on the spreadsheet or simply post in this thread or private message me here on Kongregate.

I believe this has been suggested before and the development team is taking the suggestion under consideration, whether or not it is implemented or when (if accepted) it is released is unknown.

Simple suggestions that would improve the quality of life of cities:

Chat log logs more chats and events, maybe even have a separate event log that logs things like people joining and leaving, building level ups, buildings leveling down if someone leaves

Message of the day for cities, so if the mayor wants to write something like, “most buildings are already level capped, we need more investments into the town hall,” anyone who logs in will see it first thing.

Your second suggestion is confirmed to be coming some time in the future. No exact time frame has been given.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Electing another mayor, transferring gems?

Originally posted by FishinthePond:

What if most of the members are inactive. And can only the mayor kick?

Yes, only the mayor can kick players. If there aren’t enough players active to vote for a new mayor then you are, unfortunately, out of luck and are stuck with the inactive mayor you have. I would suggest looking for a new (maybe better) city.

Also, from what I know, not even Customer Support will be able to help you with selecting a new mayor (when the mayor and players are inactive).

i didn check on phone but on pc whenever i click item i want to fusion it reshuffle everytime, it a headache knowing each time clinking it goes other side of scroll bar.

Unfortunately, the inventory is refreshing immediately after inputting an item which is a bit annoying for the Fusion Cauldron. The devs are aware and this will be changing.

Don’t want to start a new thread, but what does it take to remove the mayor of a city if he hasn’t been on for weeks?

Another city member must gain the most/majority vote. Basically, have your other city members vote for a new mayor.

The quest to defeat the boss of Pirate Cove IV doesn’t run.

The boss meter is full (I’ve run the base quest 60 of 60 times), I click on it, I fill out the party, I tell it to explore, and that window closes, but the quest doesn’t appear in the quest bar, and the heroes I assigned to it are still free to do other things. It seems to only be that quest (that I know of), and it doesn’t seem to matter the party’s makeup.

You must unlock the “New Rewards: Pirate Cove” by leveling up your Inn Building.

How come Edward cannot have a 6 men? : http://imgur.com/ap4WduX

How come this party: http://imgur.com/DOyKCyJ

Weaker than this party: http://imgur.com/jn2V5GA

These things make no sense to me at all…. Alicia’s leader ability doesn’t do anything with power…

This all happened to me after the update…. so…. what is wrong here?

To answer your first question, if I remember this correctly, that is a bug caused by having the option “automatic party selection” enabled. Just manually add in Edward and you should be able to have 6 party members total.

For your second question, the first party is not as strong as the second party because Alicia (in the second party) is leading a full team of female heroes. Alicia has the skill, Amazon III, which increases the survival rate of female heroes by 25%.

Kodos for adding skill tiers to the hero skills. This is important for at least three reasons: 1. It sorts; 2. It exports (notes don’t export to OpenOffice well); 3. Multiple entries can be compared at a glance (no mousing and remembering required). I’m very happy with this change.

That was the carrot. Here comes the stick….

On 2015-12-07, I posted to the following overarching design guideline to the game suggestion thread: “Never, not for a split second, should color be the only conveyor of information.”

Three days later, on 2015-12-10, you perpetrated a crime against humanity by adding the “Legend” page. I guess it might be okay for the tabs. In the recipes, however, could you please add a cell value to convey this information? The column is already there, it’s just empty. Not only is the package-to-color conversion not intuitive (what color most closely means the words “advanced shopfare” in someone’s mind?), not only are the colors in many cases indistinguishable to those w/o normal color vision, but it doesn’t sort. And why have data on a spreadsheet unless it can be sorted, filtered, and calculated? I recommend either a two-three digit alphanumeric code or the entire source set typed out (and squished). I might also recommend using a specific ID for the base set, leaving blank only unknown/incomplete entries.

Thank you, I’m glad you like the improvement to the Heroes sheet.

As for your feedback, I 100% agree. To be completely honest, the current system for distinguishing different package items or chest recipes is a system simply to satisfy viewers for the time being, while we were (and are) working on updating outdated information and adding in new content to other sheets.

I can promise you that an easier to understand and visually see/read change will be added in.

Topic: Shop Heroes / Spring Cleaning: Possible Short Downtime

Hi Keepers!

We’re going to perform some spring cleaning (yes it’s still Winter)!

The team has found a way to wipe out those pesky old (uncapped) trades from the Trade House, but you may experience some downtime while this task is being performed.

We will be performing this tomorrow, 13 January 2016, at 10 am EST/7 am PDT. Please note that this will serve similar to maintenance. The servers will be down anywhere from 5-30 minutes.
