#998796 Bring back our shard vids

Posted by BadPenny on 08 September 2019 - 06:11

It's been forever and a day since we had shard vids.  idk what happened to the various advertisers we used to have, not only in the sidebar but on the offerwalls themselves, but for the most part vids posted on the sidebar paid out and were beneficial for players and HCS alike.  On a few other games I play both mobile and browser based, they use TapJoy which has a great payout rate in my experience.  Oh Mighty Bovine Entities, will you please look into this and other options?

#998761 Daily Quest Rewards

Posted by BadPenny on 03 September 2019 - 02:42

I tend to agree here. The term "Legendary" implies that not only the task but the reward should be on a legendary scale.  For this particular quest, I would hunt either Mountain Path Darmovs Cave or Elya Plains Mouth, since those critters drop more often... Still their drop rates are infinitesimal for a breakdown quest of this magnitude with such a low return.


I do understand that the DQ was designed to boost activity and the rewards are supposed to be a secondary bonus, but such a tiny reward is a deterrent to activity rather than an incentive.


Many things could make this better, including but not limited to:

  • The reroll.  I would be more than willing to spend a dot to try to get a better DQ
  • Multiple choice DQ's.  Most games I play with dailies of any kind have a list to choose from.  You get a tiny reward for each, if all are completed you get something special.
  • Making the reward more relative to the task if not in value, in relevance.  

In any case, the DQ system should probably have a revamp, especially if new players coming in via the app once it's finished are expected to stick around.  There are just way too many app games that offer not only more variety but better returns for the daily quest, and as an avid user of such games, I know that if I didn't know and love FS, I would probably uninstall it and move on to something better in minutes as it is now.....

#998741 a full hunt using the new app

Posted by BadPenny on 30 August 2019 - 00:22

I wasn't quite at full stam with 14K, but I had a "normal" critter DQ, so I used the app for that purpose.

I too had to check to see how many imps I had left.  Moving about the realms is pretty simple, but I wish there was a link to the UFSG incorporated into the app so that I could just jump from app to whatever page I need there (for example, the map to determine where my exit is, to decide if I am going to do or skip a quest, to check stats of a critter to see if I need to adjust my gear, etc).  Having to use the laptop to access the guide to find things kinda defeats the purpose of using the app.


1 - are you using any epic potions?

None left from 2x XP, used composed or purchased potions, all obtained via browser (I plan ahead)

2 - how long does it take to buff up?

I buffed myself via my laptop browser after using potions also on the laptop

3 - what device are you using?

My phone is an Android, a UMX U504TL, issued by the government (ie Obama Phone)

4 - how much battery does 23k stamina use up?

I only used 14K stam, it used approximately 18% of my battery

5 - can you 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, R in the app?

Keyboard functions are not available on mobile for any purpose, except for typing stuff into text boxes.... it's all tap tap tap

6 - duration of hunt

Hunt took about 20 minutes all total.

#998725 These new icons got me good

Posted by BadPenny on 28 August 2019 - 22:41

i know this is fixed now but the fact remains:


a valid comment to a veteran player - but what about a level 20 player, who lost 1 of the 3 FSP they worked so hard for


new players, not hooked on the game yet, may react differently to such glitches in the matrix

Not to mention the many who, newbie or veteran, speak English only as a second language and possibly have not mastered it so well yet....

#998517 Servers down?

Posted by BadPenny on 13 August 2019 - 11:13

lmao, come on if a tree fell on your power line would you ask for free power ?

If it fell from the city's side of the fence, yes, yes I would.

​Yeah, I get it a lot.  I assumed it had something to do with those annoying roll-over pop ups that nobody seems to be able to deal with.

There's been plenty of complaining about a lack of testing over the years.... How is kami doing some testing of guild functions (apparently GvG) any different than hooftest roaming the realms testing gear, etc, or Zorg testing stuff in realms he's clearly way too low a level for?  At least some testing is going on, whether for the app or general play.   Shouldn't we be grateful for this?  


Just one old lady's opinion.....

#998329 Global chat has a problem

When I logged in this morning my custom theme for chat was gone, now there's nothing there at all, just a blank brown box....

It's been brought to my attention that Crystalline items on many tiers need to be replenished.

#998283 Fallen Sword: Campfire Stories

Penny Story time:


A Wizard Escapes



The young wizard was very unhappy.  Things had just seemed wrong all day, and it frustrated him.  He couldn't put his finger on the problem, and it drove him crazy.  


As he trudged down the rutted roadway, he pondered his plight, regretting leaving home to start this journey, but reluctant to return all the same.  Lost in thought, he never noticed the man behind him until it was too late.  All thought faded to black as he fell to the ground.



When he woke up, he was in a dimly lit cell with several other people. It stank of urine and other even less savory things, and the sounds of moaning and weeping were horrendous.


Checking himself over, he was pleased to find that other than a bump on the head, he was uninjured.  He checked his pockets, found that they had left him his wand, and thanked his lucky stars.  Muttering a prayer, the young sorcerer went to a corner as far from the others as possible.  He began to chant softly, so as not to be heard, as he began the door spell.  Soon, the wall before him began to glow, at first very dimly, then brighter and brighter as he continued his incantation.  The other prisoners started to notice him by now and began to surge closer.  


With a loud *POP* a huge doorway appeared in the wall.  The wizard darted through, and narrowly missed being crushed in the stampede of bodies rushing behind him.  


Blindly, he rushed down the streets, looking for a place to hide until night, when he could steal a horse and some supplies.  Soon, he came to a narrow alley, and ducked in.  The alley stank, too, but not nearly as bad as the cell had, and for that he was grateful.  He slowed to a walk, and began trying doors.  On the third or fourth try, he finally found one that was unlocked, and he darted in as quickly as he could.  


It was dark inside, so he cast a simple light spell and began to look around.  As he explored, he listened carefully for the sounds of someone nearby.  


The first room he came to was the kitchen. He pulled the checkered tablecloth off the table and began to fill it with food. 


When he finished with this, he moved to the next room, which held a cot, a chair and a desk, and not much else.  There was a photo of somebody's grandparents on one wall, but other than that, there was no decor.  He searched the desk, but really didn't find much of anything.


Moving along swiftly now, with purpose, he searched the rest of the house.  He managed to scrounge up a tinder box, flint, some rope, a knife, and some string and fish hooks.  Deciding not to press his luck further, he left the dark residence.  


Outside, it was already past dusk, and the young mage scurried along looking for some signs of a stable or somewhere else that he could steal a horse.  Soon, he came to a courtyard with a well and some benches.  Dropping the tablecloth, he sank down on the nearest bench with a sigh of relief.  As he rested, he watched the fireflies around him and started to relax a little bit.  He was exhausted, and in minutes he had fallen fast asleep.  


When he awoke, it was just after dawn, and the birds were starting to sing.  Anxious to be rid of this place.  he decided to forgo the horse, and walked out of the city and disappeared into the countryside.
