    It's been 7 hours since the booster started. But I'm pretty sure it's not working as I only got 1 item from gold collection after 2 hours. Every hour waste is out money (gems) waste. Compensation? Social Point, please do your QA!!!

    @Fox, first thanks for the hot topics post:
    https://forums.socialpointgames.com/topic/3630/hot-topics-q-a-october-2017

    I'm sure many players will be very happy to see the return of the refresh.

    There're couple of concerns still unanswered:

    "How do the shields work exactly?
    When you are defeated in battle, an automatic shield is triggered. While the shield is active, other players can't challenge you in a fight (whether it's an attack or revenge from their side) and you can't lose any Trophies. The shield will wear off over time (3 hours) or is deactivated when YOU attack another player."

    This is inline with the understanding most has. However, many experienced strange behavior of the shield. We can be attacked by the same player back to back. If the shield works as explained above, this should never happen. Just FYI, I didn't take revenge attack during my 3 attacks.

    "Why is Halloween season lasting 3 weeks? Why Demise cells instead of runes?
    The duration of PVP seasons is not necessarily 2 weeks. We wanted to do special seasons with different kinds of rewards (eg. Demise cells). You can expect a special Xmas season with even better rewards."

    I believe the main concern here is whether SP wants to cut the reward value. We're fine with the expanded duration but if gems value is the same, it's cut.

    Best

    . This defense change would be ok if matching was equal or lesser in most cases. Normally it is always always yes always higher. It takes the fun out of the game so why do it????????? Why? Oh Why? πŸ˜‰

    Actually this is one of current pvp system right now and it should be solved even if we didn't get the new AI

    As a start maybe it was better to test this New AI on some new dungeons and see how many players will complete it and how others will process instead of pvp
    and all our fear came from the new AI will be really smart0_1523665482627_0762.png Unless his IQ is over 9000 it is nothing

    @Jasmin-Begic102
    Unless you are a top player with top monsters you will find pvp really hard .
    many quit the game and many forget about it - like me - i only do 3 pvp before season end ...for ex a player in L4 with no nemesis or vip and all opponent he got is l1 and l2 players with nemesis . full relics !! if you have time you can read

    For me it is broken feature . and @Ketenks my objection was that directing players to certain feedback even before seeing it πŸ˜‰

    The problem is not the AI, a better AI is always welcome especially in wars as we expect our defense monsters to act just like human. The problem is with SP's persistent bias towards defense. Ever since the new PvP was introduced, SP has been doing everything they could to make the system more favorable to defense. But have they ever considered the user experience? What entertainment and joy players can get from a defense win? The fun of the PvP is always in the attack. And if they keep matching the attackers with 2 ties higher, no one would even try.

    If Thorder's haste and slow can be nerfed, so can other broken mechanisms.

    Nobody bought 17 copies of Thorders that time (no war, no lab) so they can do what they want. Now with money involved things are much more complicated. I'm sure SP doesn't want to be overwhelmed with the refund request if they nerf him (or any monster people invest heavily), it happened before (Harusami?)

    I personally felt Samael was a result of internal design competition of what best monster can be but somehow someone accidentally made him live...

    My biggest concern is the tougher restrictions for high level teams. I do not see why it is necessary to limit the number of monsters to be used in wars. If people choose not to use lvl 130 Nemesis, but a lvl 120 epic or lv 100 L instead then please let them? Let's not unnecesarily kill creativity here.

    Can't agree more. Never understood the reason of such restriction - minimal rank requirement. Why? I hate those in dungeons. If people can finish a job with lower rank monsters, they should even be rewarded for creativity. It seems the coming Team Battleground will make the positive move by removing some restrictions, why introducing the same to the new team war? Please don't!

    2 or 4 hours searching time is nothing among the top 50 or 100. No one is happy about searching being too long. But we have to set reasonable expectation. There're 3 dimensions - search time, equality of no. of players, and equality of strength. There's no way the system can meet all 3. What drove us crazy a few weeks ago was there was no result for some teams (took longer than 2 days and confirmed it wasn't possible to get any opponent). The new update at least addressed that, and I thank SP for that.

    This means we could face stronger teams more easily (it already happened to my team, yes against PoF), but as long as the system doesn't give one-sided matches back to back I'm happy.

    @carlos

    Please please please fix Evasion for Nishants Bodyguard!

    When monsters first hit the war shop they are very expensive. That makes sense: players who choose to buy at that higher premium pay for the privilege of playing with the monster while it is still rare and exclusive. I spent a lot of war coins for that privilege to rank her, and happy to do so... but it doesn't work! And that is her signature ability.

    At this rate the price will have come down and the monster will no longer be exclusive before she is fixed, if she is fixed. So the premium in war coins I spent on her will be wasted.

    Please. Please fix her.

    Well. As predicted.

    The 1.4k premium I paid per copy was just thrown away since she has been bugged from the beginning and is still bugged a quarter of a year later.

    PLEASE fix her.

    Social Point should have a proper compensation system for their mistakes like this. IMO, we can return this buggy monster and get full price refund. And have option to buy it back (same rank) with the latest price when it's fixed.

    @tintum said in Report bugged skills here:

    The way Igursus' mirror mirror works is strange, when he gets possessed he reflects all on his own team, not on the enemy that attacked him, i understand he's possessed but shouldn't he reflect that to whoever is attacking him? Even a single target possession is reflected on himself.

    This is based on the order of attack and reflection. I believe this is how it works:
    He gets hit, the status effect (possession) applies on him first. Now his skill reflection kicks in, under possession, reflect to his own team.

    I don't understand why SP don't do this by themselves. They can always control when to release a new monster and make monster states available in their own wiki. The only thing they don't want to reveal is the bleeding successful rate for a bleeding event.

    @Kellys-Heroes said in Why do SP penalise spenders???:

    @Nynaevelan So you think that players who do purchase items are being penalised then if the odds are stacked more in favour of a non spender πŸ€” this was my original point, how are these prizes determined by SP and why should it be that way rather than a completely fair process across the board! I was asking for fairness from the original post and thinking that if you spend money on the game (which pays developers etc) why can’t they recognise this and give you a fairer reward and not the lowest option they offer πŸ˜‚

    If you're seeking fairness, do NOT buy chest, that's gambling. The King of Gems event is for you. The more you spend, the better reward you get, guaranteed!

    Fairness doesn't exist in gambling world. It's usually on the opposite side. Those big spenders suffer the most.

    This is how mirror works. Voltaik's turns are not lost but interrupted by the mirror, during which the monster who does the mirror gets a chance to play his move. If the move can't deny or kill Voltaik, his turns will continue.

    Right, charging banner is everywhere nowadays making the life so miserable for Thetys, who used to rule them all in old days (because of this, Thetys' role is changing, her most useful move is ESW now)

    For this subject, the new queen is Ruby.

    For non-Nemesis (VIP doesn't have denier), I vote for Kihaku too. 3 AOE denial moves (only Cavenfish can match) plus 1 single is already making him unique, and easily rule the Sea book. His unique denial (freeze+possess) is nightmare for mountain traits monsters who are very common in defense. Most important is this double denial move (even 50% chance) works quite effective against VIP/Nemesis with Bulwark trait. One of the 3 AOE is 0CD! A big plus.

    His trait is not fantastic but very functional in defense.

    Extra turn or not, doesn't affect how mirror works. It's quite simple, as long as the reflector is still under the effect (positive) of mirror, any skill from attacker hit on him will be reflected immediately, and reflector gains one turn to do his own skills after which the mirror effect will be gone.

    Whoever runs Timerion (has been around for longer than 4 years) should know this.

    The new matchmaking is a joke. Yes, it can produce better result, but with the sacrifice of increasing searching time, to a point it becomes infinite. This is ridiculous!

    We all understand there're 3 dimensions in the matchmaking: time, equality of players, equality of strength. One of them will have to be suffered but it shouldn't be time. We can live with a few players in observer mode, we can also live with matching with stronger teams, but we can't live with no matching! The whole matchmaking must be time-boxed!

    Hello @SkeelMaster,

    We stitched the hot topics from your questions actually. So very much thank you for that πŸ™‚

    Regarding the shield, you are absolutely correct. If the shield behaves as you stated then it is a bug. Could you give me a bit more info so I can send it to the devs? With examples, if it's possible. The more details we get the quicker is the solution.
    Thanks for bringing this up!

    Now regarding the rewards, actually, the Demise cells have a higher value than runes. We don't plan to change any rewards with intention of cutting the value. However, the rewards may change in the future. We do plan to add relics for example.

    @Fox, somehow I couldn't find a way to PM you. I have screenshots as proof.

    Regarding the reward, I'm not judging the value of cells vs runes. It's the gems value. The duration is extended by one more week but gems reward remain the same. This is as if I'm asked by my boss to work OT without extra pay. πŸ™‚ Sorry if this analogy isn't appropriate.
    Please don't get me wrong, Social Point has every right to adjust the reward. I'm just hoping you can be honest with us, that you just want to reduce the reward.

    I think we all appreciate our feedback are heard and more importantly action has been taken to make something right. It's encouraging.

    With active collection (every 4 hours, about 5 collection per day. Not perfect collection as we still need to sleep), one usually can get 1.1 k maze coins per day. The major one comes from breed/hatch, each gives 50 coins.

    With maze dungeons and happy hours (assuming your Monsterwood is still working), we can get about 25, 26k coins from 21 days. If we save all and only use in the last maze coin move discount (30%), we might be able to get Zimnyaya (costs 36k without discount). Unfortunately this is nearly impossible as no way we can finish all the moves in one hour.

    I don't understand why SP is making this event harder and harder (coins per day requirement keeps increasing). Yes they want to sell maze coins to those spenders. But if they make it easier for everyone to be able to get good monsters without spending, some f2p players WILL SPEND gems to rank them up later. SP is losing the business in the end.
