#193100 Advertising the forums

Posted by Skydancer on 31 October 2017 - 12:27 PM

But normally forums don't die because they have a telegram chat (or Discord server because KOT is behind the times not having one). I don't see why people should flat out ditch the forum for good because a chat exists. These chats should be part of the forum, or an extra, not a replacement. I think it could be that the older users have now left but not enough people are aware of the forums to allow new users to replace the old. I don't see why the chat, even if more reliable, should kill the forum. It is not so bad for most of the forum except for forum games, which are inherently unfun and some even unplayable without activity. If you want to play forum games still, then you are better off at another forum.

 

If you talk this way, I'm not sure if you have ever used telegram for KoT related stuff. There are bots which are databases of dungeon layouts/default traps and such, many channels for help in every aspect of the game. And the most important thing ( in my opinion) is that we are talking about a PHONE GAME. When I need anything and I'm on my phone, I'd rather open telegram and get an answer in 2 minutes than opening a post here and hope for an answer in half a day ( talking when the forum was quite active).

 

It would help if Zeptolab put news on here again. It used to be the place to find the update notes and when they were coming. As well as speculation on what it all meant. I gave up looking so often at the forums when all that stopped.

 

That would help for sure, but now they are doing that stuff on Facebook and Twitter, and I'd say way more frequently then when anticipations were posted on the forums.

 

That's honestly probably the best way to make the forums active again. That and as others have mentioned, advertising the forums in-game. Though, one thing I have noticed for a while now is that Zeptolab unfortunately doesn't seem to interact a lot with their players.. They don't ask for real feedback on the game and updates and they don't seem to listen too much to any ideas or give us feedback on the ideas given. 

 

I think it would really help if they communicated more with their player-base, or at least with those that actually care to give their opinions and try to help make the game great.

 

Just because they don't reply to every comment, it doesn't mean that they don't care. Lately there have been quite a few "quick fixes" to their fuckups ( Shady Joe event in July is the first thing which comes to my mind), and subsequent compensations.

And let's be honest here, from 20 ideas proposed by players... 18-19 would be either completely broken or 100% useless. I still see people crying to bring back the 2500orbs reward for seasons, which happened more than a year ago and DESTROYED the game for the few months in which it was implemented.

 

Then again, I love the forums. Digging into old threads and the goldmine of informations is just awesome. But it's not for everyone. The average player now wants an answer HERE and NOW, 95% of the people don't care to understand the game... they just want the simplest and fastest answer. And for this kind of people, a chat is better than a forum.




#193094 Advertising the forums

It's sad to see the forums dying this way, there are many resources, usefull stuff and memories of the past here. But as Neptune said, Telegram is much faster to use for anything, from sharing a dungeon layout to just talking 5 minutes with guildmates, and that's probably why most users migrated there.

I don't think this has to do with KoT / CATS popularity.




#193015 Idea

Posted by Skydancer on 21 October 2017 - 07:11 PM

I would love it ( and I think I suggested something similar some time ago).

But it's very very hard to balance such stuff in a game where people are ready to exploit even the smallest loophole to take advantage.




#193014 I relapsed

Posted by Skydancer on 21 October 2017 - 04:39 PM

Ah yes seems it's still a game of deep wallets

 

Meh, I'd say more 24/7 nolifing than wallet nowadays.

Nice to see you around from time to time btw ;)




#192839 What was the throne enhancement to the top guilds in the crown arena ?

Posted by Skydancer on 22 September 2017 - 06:13 PM

We don't know all the details, we just know that it will be a little better than foreseer15.

 

I will post all the stuff at the end of the month, if my guild manages to get the prize ;)




#192511 Daily maze spin RIGGED

Posted by Skydancer on 03 August 2017 - 07:19 AM

Hello, I track maze spins together with a "bunch" of other stuff.
Out of 355 tries, I won the 50 orbs 36 times ( I never respin). I don't track tears unfortunately.
So the odd, atleast for orbs, seems to be exactly the 10% shown.


#192310 I'm noticing a difference when stealing gems and retrieving gems as it re...

Posted by Skydancer on 15 July 2017 - 07:08 PM

Retrieve chance does not depend on thrones / gem defence / whatever other modifier.

It's always 30% for 3 stars, 15% for 2 stars and 5% for 1 star.




#192292 Unfairness after level 50

Posted by Skydancer on 14 July 2017 - 05:59 PM

Level 1072? I feel I may be guilty here :ph34r: .

 

On a serious note, the level 50+ pool is open to everyone. It's quite bad for fresh level 50 players who can get raided by everyone, but remember also that you have access to bigger rituals to raid compared to the lower levels.

The thrones unfortunately were changed in a recent update, now they are a slightly better than before but they also cost a lot more. I suggest you to use this event to rack up some purple dust, the recipe offered by Shady Joe is pretty cheap and it gives you 3 dust. And for the rest... always run rituals with crap gems to gather ingredients, and always upgrade your traps if you can.




#191921 Lvl 1 traps and now i cant download KoT from google play store

Posted by Skydancer on 14 June 2017 - 08:26 AM

Hi guys, as you know, something went wrong and traps went back to lv1 for many players. The progress will be restored over the next two days and everything will be back to normal.

 

Regarding the fact that you can't download the game again, I honestly have no idea about that. What kind of error are you getting?




#191894 Traps back at lv 1

Posted by Skydancer on 13 June 2017 - 08:47 PM

Hey guys, as you can see by the Facebook post above, something went wrong and many players got their traps reset to level1. Over the next two days the situation will be back to normal and progress will be restored.




#191614 Prize for completing single-player game, and 3-starring entire sections of it

Posted by Skydancer on 30 May 2017 - 06:02 PM

Well, there is a feature which is available only after you complete the single player world: the option to skip dungeons for orbs, which was introduced in 2.17 if I remember right.

 

Also there were(are?) some missions which require a certain number of stars in single player, but it's been quite a long time since I completed those so I'm not sure if they are still there.




#191481 Renting orbs.

Posted by Skydancer on 23 May 2017 - 06:01 PM

Yeah, definitely no. It could be abused to no end by someone with multiple accounts




#191432 White shadow costume

Posted by Skydancer on 20 May 2017 - 09:36 AM

Time travel back to last year before the update that introduced thrones. Then use 9 mushrooms and 9 eyes to get it and come back :)

 

I wish I could do this for wise eye and purple splash... :ph34r:




#191365 Watch Out for the Watchers!

Posted by Skydancer on 16 May 2017 - 06:50 PM

First time but... well, it must come sooner or later :ph34r:




#191126 Does anyone have the Guild Lvl Chart the used to be in the game?

Posted by Skydancer on 06 May 2017 - 08:41 AM

My guild ---> Guild level bonuses ---> the box with "?"

But it seems that you can only see the levels you are missing now, and not all the previous ones like it was before last update
