  1. There isn't this stage of tiering up where you pucker up and kiss the asses of event hosts for items. There isn't a begging culture. You are taking isolated events and generalizing them to all event hosts. Admittedly, maybe I have mis-categorized and generalized it however, you are doing the same thing. If you are categorized this as any other friend to friend transactions then there will be no need for the secrecy. When its done behind closed doors, it looks suspicious. I dont think you can also 100% say if it rarely happens or not. Characterizing this as rare is disingenuous. I personally dont know how often but from what I heard it seems frequent.
  2. I dont know how often it does but even happening at all doesnt set well with me. There shouldn't be a incentive for being friends with mods. It doesnt break the game just makes it unfair. It killed my motivation to progress because it adds another element to the game which is kissing up to the mods in hopes of receiving something. It directly creates this begging culture, I'm sure many have seen before. So I cant provide what you ridiculously ask for so this is your response? Black Mamba quote: I've heard things from people who have over 3000-4000 hours in this game about favoritism etc. its there, and I won't take names nor do I want to get into it about favoritism in general but it exists, deeply. ________________ It's not a big leap from what you said here to the favoritism materializing in the way I said. If you wanna sidetrack this issue with your immaturity please stop.
  3. To the first point of not personally hearing about it, it maybe because it supposed to be a "secret". My friends may have a bigger mouth than the group of people you know, or I maybe more trusted with being told this, it can be a number of factors. I dont know why you never heard it before (not saying you should of to begin with) and I dont why I heard from others resembling the same story. In all cases, when I heard somethings were going on, the people who told me would emphasizing how it's a secret. This I assume because it's not suppose to be allowed. Which I didnt know till DDace pointed that out but it make sense why it's suppose to be secret now. As said above in one of my post, it seems too much to brush it off as a mere coincidence as if these people were lying and just talking out their butts. Asking for "significant" proof is ridiculous. As you may know it would require me to be in a private game while it's happening and if its suppose to be a secret, do you think I will be in that sever?(Based on the assumption that it will not be done in a public game) All I have is a several text messages and a phone call since one of them I know in real life. It doesnt amount to significant proof. If you are looking for the specific events, it will also not be a significant proof for it too can be said it was bought / traded / or whatever from a different player. So the only way to get hard evidence to expose it logically, will be a picture of there PMs or being in their private game as it happens. Yup, I said the same thing above in a different post. Everyone has a equal chance to get their hands on it as it should be. This is fair.
  4. I agree with that. I think the reason you stated why Events were introduced is also great. Just hope its fair for all and there's no shady business in the community when it suppose to bring the community together. As long as theres any items that's legitimately in the game, it will always create a demand for it. It doesnt matter if its Ults or events, its basic supply and demand economics, wanting it is only a natural outcome. just need to stop the favoritism type behaviors on here.
  5. As for showing off items, I'm much more impressed with someone showing off some Ult++ armor they farmed then some event item they got. Once again I dont care for your personal opinions they are subjective. Those questions you asked are not the concerns Im discussing here so please make another thread if you wish to discuss them. I want to make sure my issues about this game are not sidetracked. Furthermore, as DDace has mentioned above this should not be happening in first place, as he stated because Ranked sever should be fair for all.
  6. Please read above since I already covered how it affects me.
  7. I appreciate that you point out mods are not allowed to give extra items unless it's an giveaway but, hearing from multiple accounts. It still happens. And I think people who receive these extras are told to keep it a secret because as you said mods are not allowed to. And it also seems pretty frequent.
  8. To this point, to each his own. The reasons why I read game guides is I can get knowledge a lot faster. Some may prefer to get knowledge by experiences, reading guides, or watching videos, I personally prefer videos and game guides because they are a lot faster form of learning for me. I will also argue that you can learn and know more about the game and its mechanics through guides. For example, doing the campaign doesnt teach you that ogres will completely ignore other defenses because they target LTs. Another would be how to build your characters or even more seriously what are hacked items and how you can tell since this is an offense that can get you banned. I'm sure many have been shown certain builds for maps, if you do the campaign with your own build its more about trial and error. If you can negate this, you save a lot of time getting to the end game. In conclusion, how you get your knowledge (experience) that helps is debatable in itself, for me I prefer digesting information through guides and learning from others. I understand you differ on this point so there for we agree to disagree. What's enjoyable to a person is subjective so I didnt address this point. The way, I read experienced players boosting newer players isnt doing them a favor is because maybe you want to say that they dont gain the experience. So I wrote it in the way. Firstly, Thank you for addressing my main issue in the post and why I can't recommend this game. I agree hard work should be rewarded. People who directly improves the game play for other should always be rewarded. My understanding is that this is done through official means for example, Beta testing for the new Water temple map. I think many who participated in this weren't mods and they were rewarded with Events. I am all for that. In as you said it's a giveaway for something in return. However, equating this to beneficial relationships are two completely different things. In my opinion this creates an environment where undoubtedly its unfair to others and will create grievances. In a way it's an abuse of the authority of being a mod when you can enrich a group of friends for not hard work but because of favoritism. In other words, the average players does not get the same chances to be given those events unlike a giveaway. On a rank sever, I just wanted to see some fairness for all who are putting in the effort.
  9. I agree it's a fun game to the casual player not planning on collecting Ult++ & Ult+ armor/events. There not really needed to do anything on the game in fact, reading back through reviews (2012-2015) of this game, one of the reasons why some hardcore players who put in 2000+ hours quit this game is because of the introduction of OP items, which watered down the difficulty of this game coupled with their claims of developers being greedy and releasing many DLCs to get as much money as possible. All that is personally irrelevant to me. However, why is there a "Trading" thread that people gather to constantly bid on Ult++ / events? When they are unnecessary to complete the game. My opinion and personal reason is because you can boost / increases reputation / show your hard work/ or however others may put it. It's much the same for any MMORPG type style at the end game. Playing online games, you may deny it's irrelevant but at least subconsciously, it does affect people at the end game just like any other online RPG type game. This is of course anecdotal but I encountered many who wants to show what they earned on this game. Its great that they are proud of it but, at the same time I think most may compare themselves to what they see once again at least (subconsciously). Knowing that its not cut and dry, meaning that others can get "special services" where I would have to spend CVs for it, is like a legalize hacking. By the way hacking is another reasons others have quit this game according to some reviews on steam, even though it doesnt have to personally affect you or me. To keep it fair hackers are banned. My understanding is that the Ranked sever means it should be equal to all online players whereas on an open sever you can do whatever. Certain things goes against that basic principle. Aside from that, the Event host's lag did affect my gaming experience as mentioned in my first post above. I practiced this map for 2 days with a friend. During our practice run we (just the 2 of us) was able to get to wave 18. I know the Event host didnt intentionally lagged or what not, but I feel my effort was wasted because of it, just like farming on Moonbase for about 20-30 hours a week on a ranked sever. Thus I cant recommend this game to those who are planning to try to max their heroes out on the ranked sever.
  10. I would recommend this game to many who are just wanting to kill time and have fun. Not only this this game is really fun but it also has a great community who are willing to help new players. I have 500 hours on this game and because of the great community, within 100 hours into the game I was able to farm Kings game on survival NMHC, around 200 hours into the game I was able to farm Moonbase on survival NMHC. But as I started to drop countless of sups, Ults, Ults +, and 3 Ults++ armors because I was farming Moonbase around 10 times a week for about 2 months, I felt something was strange. From the friends I made on here to people I know in real life, I kept hearing how mods would give them special items or do something "extra" (whatever that maybe) but emphasizing that they aren't suppose to tell others since its a secret. (Obviously this is hearsay) But the same exact story came from several people so it seems at least plausible. Learning this, I felt that I was at a severe disadvantage. It killed all my motivation in "progressing" through this game because it wasnt really about grinding at the end game. It seemed that its better to kiss up to certain people. Because I grind so much, week in and week out on Moonbase, I was able to give Ult, Ult+, and Ult++ armor to friends who really wanted it and helped me previously. Ironically they had all the events I wanted but I had 0 until this event which I was only able to get 2/3 events because the Event host was lagging severely. Out of the 5 members, none of us was able to use our summoners to summon mages and when we tried, we all died when changing heroes. It also took about 2 minutes to respawn..... To put it in perspective, the people I ran it with already completed it and beat the event meaning that they completed all 18 waves. When my friends was helping me this time to beat the event the host was different. Due to the Event host's lag we lost at wave 16. Therefore I got 2/3 events. I cant farm for the Event item "Pumpkin mask" and if I ever wanted it, I would have to pay at least 10+ CVs and that's being modest. I wonder if the results would been different if I had known this mod before. My thing is farming is cool and I love it, heck I farmed the same map for 2 months, but how, some players will have an advantage over others because of their relationships to mods, leaves a really bad taste. So for me, I recommend this game to the casual players but for others who wants to do more than just beat the game a.k.a get all the achievements and collect events (which cant be farmed). I cant recommend it.
  11. That would be great but I cant till like tomorrow since Im really busy. Does it make a difference using keyboards vs joystick? Because I heard keyboards are faster when building not sure if that applies to races.
  12. How is everyone doing that map in 3-4 mins? Are there like secret short cuts or something? If so please show me since the contest is over anyways.
  13. Here is my submission. Very challenging map! Took me like 30 hours to get this time. And completed it only 3 times lol. https://ibb.co/mttZy6 https://imgur.com/a/aoV7c Uploaded same picture on two different sites to make sure it works lol. I guess my choices in order are: 1) Greater Magite of the wind 2) The Rockshatter 3) Aladdin's Wish Thanks!
  14. We dont get the kismet error message or any special error message. We get automatically logged and receive the (You lost connection with the host) message. Soon as we start the event map. We can join each other if we are at the tavern. We can also play the map by ourselves but not with each other. I will try again though. Maybe it was because we didnt restart as you said above. Thanks
  15. Does anyone know how to play event maps on open with friends? Everytime My friend or I host a map and we join each other's game we get logged off. Does anyone know how to stop this problem? So we can play together on an event map on open. Thanks.
