Under rating threshold (show) While I admit that this sort of game isn't my cup of tea and that I'm just here for the badges, I must say that I applaud the developer's friendly attitude while receiving the onslaught of negative feedback that games of this style get bombarded with. Kudos to you in that regard.

Thanks, we try to keep things positive! We're just a small indie company, so everybody who plays our games is important to us.

Under rating threshold (show) passing along the memo, (+ this up so people stop saying ''Why don't i get a full refill'' etc alt the time Developer response from kanoapps When a player levels up, they always receive the following bonus: Health: 5000 Energy: 500 Stamina: 50 If their health, energy or stamina maximum are equal to or lower than these figures, then they are refilled all the way. Sorry for the confusion!

Under rating threshold (show) I could tell from the moment I saw this that it was a multiplayer game. Not because of the generic-ass title, but from the fact it stretched the screen out.

We are indeed a multiplayer game! Grow your mob and reward them by adding them to your Familia!

Developer response from kanoapps

We're really honored to get badges for our game. We know it's not for everyone, but are grateful for people at least having an open mind to try it out and also for all the regular players who think it's great.

Under rating threshold (show) Heres my pattern when it comes to games like this. Play it. Get bored. Stop playing it. 350 days later play it again. Find out im rich. Then play it again

Under rating threshold (show) When I have to hit Ctrl-minus twice just to see even half of your hilariously oversized screen, you're doing it very wrong. This may surprise you, but most people don't have screens over 2000px tall.

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for giving Mob Wars a chance and thanks for the comment. We know that the screen length is an issue and is something we are looking to adjust to improve the game play experience!

Under rating threshold (show) Great Potential, Just could use a little boost to make up for the low population of players. It's pretty sad to see that there's no one to fight after you reach a certain level. A lot of people depend on fights/boss fights for most of their exp needed to level since you could only get so much from energy based exp. Any way you can provide npcs that respawn every 10min or so to allow players to have something to hit, or else we just sit around waiting for our energy to refill, and for some people it's a very long time.

+ - !

(118)

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the comment Bakabwoy, we're looking to remove the mob requirement on bosses to make them more available for people on the feed. For pvp battles at the lower levels at the moment we just need more active people in the game. We also plan on opening up the battle arena once there are enough high level players in the game aswell!

Under rating threshold (show) Speaking as a potential new player, this game has serious problems. The biggest is that the interface alone makes me want to close the tab. Is this really the best layout? Sorry, my screen isn't 3 feet tall. If I've been here for 10 seconds, do I really need to see things that are locked until level 20? Also, why no tutorial? Third, the twitter/facebook/game pimping is just shameless. and where do i see my loyalty points and favor points? I don't see them anywhere on the interface

+ - !

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the feedback! We appreciate hearing specific issues new players have with the UI and game set up, as feedback from fresh eyes is great. While we unfortunately can't promise immediate and wide-ranging UI changes, we will take your suggestions under consideration. As for your question about favor points, you can see them in brackets on the "Godfather" tab. You can also see loyalty points by clicking on the "Loyalty Items" section under the Godfather tab.

Under rating threshold (show) Wayyyyyyy too tall. On my 1440x900 desktop, this game is a little over a page and a half tall; games should never require scrolling. Assuming a desktop is 768 high will make you OK for most users.

Developer response from kanoapps

Thanks for the feedback, it's a pretty common one and something we are looking to address to improve the gameplay!

We had a successful promotion based on user feedback so Kongregate though it would be a good idea to give us badges. Sorry to hear that you don't enjoy this type of game!

Under rating threshold (show) Why invest the time to make such a huge Screen and so many graphics? Just put a button in the middle of the Screen and let People click them. Add texts like "don't you dare clicking me!" if you want. And for the fun add a longer break after 1k clicks or so or let People pay for clicking on. would save you devs a lot of time...

People like the artwork, it's one of the things that gets praised the most in our game. We wouldn't take that away from people!

Under rating threshold (show) Having the same strengths and weaknesses as a lot of fb games....i can see how people can get hooked into it.....but i just find that story wise it is just too poor for kong ((no comparison with dod ro suns)) ......but have to give it a plus for developers responding to the harsh criticisms.....hats off to you coz none of the other money sucking games have the decency to do that.

Developer response from kanoapps

Well I certainly wouldn't consider this a money-sucking game (we have to make a living), I appreciate your comment all the same! We try to respond to most of the comments, or at least the ones we feel like we can contribute something to. :)

Under rating threshold (show) In 2009, I came across Mob Wars on Facebook. For whatever reason, I don't recall why, I jumped ship and moved to Mafia Wars. Which turned out to be a bad idea. My gaming interest shifted for a while. Recently, while browsing around for a new game, I saw this one again. The screenshots interested me. It looked very different. Wow! It is different. Compared to '09, this game is awesome! I am sooo glad I re-discovered it. Given the current state of the social mob game genre, this wins a few gold stars.

Under rating threshold (show) The game seems just like 100 others I've seen. The UI is cluttered and pointlessly huge. On the upside, I was able to click through the badges without really ever needing to wait for timers to refill things, so I'm very impressed.

We're going to be working on slimming down the UI to make is less massive. Congratulations on the badges!

Under rating threshold (show) I have said this many times but only because i do believe so; MMO should not have badges mostly cuz the ''achievement hunters''(like myself) play the game get the badges, rate the game bad and them go their way AND they take too much time for their value DX. also as an Italian i feel a little offended by this game :P

Under rating threshold (show) Oh noes, a multiplayer game got badges again :( I have nothing against the game (apart from the fact that i won't play it), but it's always a disappointment to see a new badge that won't be a chance to play a great game... It's like opening a big shiny present and there's something you don't like in it. Gets your hopes down...

hehehe... hopefully it's a different car you are targeting each time. If he has his stolen 50 times, he probably should invest in an alarm! Don't forget to try different jobs!

Dec. 3, 2013

Under rating threshold (show) Well, I decided to stick with this game and I gotta say, it's way more fun at level 272 than it is at level 50. My main complaint is still the long 2 day cooldown on bosses. Sure, you can do other people's bosses on the Raids tab, but each player is operating on a 2 day cooldown for each boss and you can only join if they share their boss fights, so you can't always find the boss you're looking for. Plus the long cool down time means it takes weeks to unlock new bosses, since you need to beat the prievous boss 5 times to unlock the next one. The whole pay2win thing turns out to be a non issue, since you can get plenty of free Favor Points from doing Turf War challenges, and the number of friends in your mob has a bigger impact on your fight strength than your equipment.

+ - !

(14)

Developer response from kanoapps

Hey chefcook90, glad you kept playing and that you're enjoying it! The Boss cooldown is something that gets brought up from time to time, so we can certainly look at addressing it. Thanks for your feedback! :)

Under rating threshold (show) ahhh so continues the process of Kongregate giving badges to generic-sub par multiplayer games in the hope of.. i don't even know what they're hoping for anymore. maybe they're hoping they'll lose the entire base of people who play games on this site and want to get badges.

Or maybe the user base rated the game highly and Kongregate felt it was worthwhile giving the game badges? Who knows! :)

Developer response from kanoapps

There are lots of achievements in this game, because achievements are awesome! Assuming you mean badges, we would love to have them, and the best way for that to happen is to rate the game up, and encourage other players to rate it up as well!

Under rating threshold (show) Here I was just avoiding this on Facebook for years because I was irritated that people were flooding my feed with requests for whatever bonuses they got for recruiting people, but it turns out that it was actually an awful game, too. I'm sure the developers are going to continue doing their PR thing by spinning this and/or other comments into, "If you try harder, you just might find some fun in it!" But seriously, fellow Kongregants, if you're reading this, just go play some more Gemcraft.

Developer response from kanoapps

If you try harder, .... hehe just kidding. Thanks for giving us a try and sorry you didn't enjoy playing. We definitely know that this type of game isn't for everyone, but some people love it and we do our best to provide the best game experience we can!

Under rating threshold (show) Keep the 1/5's coming guys, together we can adjust the game's rating to where it belongs, which for sure isn't the 4.15 that it had in the moment it got badges. It's our Kong and we don't want crappy energy based pay2win facebook games badged. Especially not when they have obnoxious large gamescreens without any real gameplay (aside from clicking buttons) like this one. 1/5 gogo!

Some may feel that way, but it got to the high rating before because some people do like our games. Crazy, I know.
