Talking with the founders of the guilds they are all asking from a dev team to make this event less harder than the previous one.

We know that difficulty of the event was changed to not be easy but the previous one was brutal hard for top 10 guilds,if it was hard for them you can imagine how harder was for the rest of the guilds,totaly just few finished.

We know that company nead to earn money and that is fine,but please make this event less harder so people have more chance to finish it.
Thank you

C'Mon Guys! The thread is about RAID BOSS difficulty.
The moderator who began this thread doesnt speak English as his first language. There is no reason to be rude and every reason to be considerate.

I reiterate the request for Raid Boss health to be somewhere between the last two. The increase of 300% is somewhat ludicrous and should be dialed back a tad. We understand that GREE needs to earn a living, but a happy medium such that players don't get frustrated and leave is preferred,

First learn to interpret your data correctly. Raid boss last time was OUT OF PROPORTION YOU IDIOTS.

Secondly, learn to read when almost your entire player base complains about something YOU MORONS!

Warn me all you like if that makes you feel better. But if you want respect, how about you first show some respect to your player base!!!!!

To play devil's advocate, stat inflation has been insane lately. All of us who have been playing most likely have a much larger FA. However, that is supposed to give us a leg up and an advantage on this event, not make it harder.

This is probably going to lead to more retirements as KA quickly descends into oblivion.

Frankly GREE, this is the funniest thing you have attempted yet. 2x increase in boss health (over a 300% increase last time), and still no health potions. This is sooo funny. I personally want to thank you for freeing up my calendar for the weekend. Please note that Warlord's have decided we will stand down. We were one of the few teams who completed it last time... But this is impossible to complete. And frankly the prize will only improve our stats (which is useless - last time you highly insulted everyone who did complete it with such a terrible prize). Here is our internal post to the Warlords team: STOP THE MADNESS: If you spend GEMS in this RB, you will be kicked from our team! Thanks again, for a free weekend. and who knows, I might get used to spending more time with my family.

The complaints keep piling up from those of us who have been around since the launch of KA. As difficult and unbalanced the game has become for us long timers, think about how IMPOSSIBLE rpthe game us for new people coming in. I worked very hard & long over 3 years to finally be able to feel good when RB started only to have all that work & time completely negated as Gree raises the difficulty. What is the point if striving to improve & get better when we as players can never progress. I am not spending another penny on gems to play this game because I get nothing back in return. For the rest of the community.....the only way Gree will listen is for everyone to stop using gems. Instead of constantly complaining to developers who have proven their unwillingness to listen to the community....make them hear you by stopping the revenue stream....stop using gems.

The only way to make gree listen is to hit them in their wallets. Most of the top ten won't be using gems on this RB. And RKSB has told their people not to use gems. Hopefully that sends out a clear message.

I personally will not be using gems. My guild finished last HRB using gems, but we have instructed out people not to use gems this time.

Can anyone confirm whether or not you need to complete HRB to get the Bog Basilisk (2nd to last Antiquary unit)? I have a feeling that is the only way to get it. :mad:

Mattman@WLD
02-19-2015, 09:03 AM
Hey my KA friends, A bit of a math geek here so hope you don't mind a bit more detail on how much it will cost to finish HRB.

So with the 89% Raid Boss Health increase you need to do approximately 9,600 Billion damage across the entire event. If you have 60 people in your guild. That equates to 27B/day per person. Now let look at it from WLD perspective. As a team we have done 600B damage already (gem free). We have a large number of members with FA's over 1 billion and a 9/10 health regen guild bonus.

However, in order to keep pace with the needed daily damage, we would need to do 1,600B/day. So that means we will end day 1 about 900B short (assumes our current pace so means we will finish day 1 with about 700B damage as a team). In the past we have used outside help (up to 100 jumpers/hour last event) and that was good for up to 200B additional damage daily. So with our best foot forward, and using outside help we are still 700B short a day.

NOW THE FUN PART: So how much would it cost WLD as a team to complete this event (assuming a 1billion FA and jumper help)? drum roll please... 17,500 gems PER DAY or 105,000 gems total for the entire event... THAT IS FOR ONE SILLY PRIZE THAT NO ONE EVEN KNOWS WHAT IT IS. As I have said before, WLD is out!


UPDATE: Gree has posted that the final HRB unit is Ironfisted Viking with stats of 435032/355935 with a +4% Infantry Defense permanent bonus. BRAAAA HAAAA HAAAA. Back to my first post, funniest event ever. Cheers GREE, I needed a great laugh today.

Rebalancing the game was needed to make things more challenging to players and profitable for Gree. However, Gree went overboard with all events. Now, it is beyond challenging, into the realm of impossible for most players. As such, Gree will get less money as the casual gemmer sees no point in continuing and heavy gemmers are burning out trying to complete never ending quests. On the bright side, I have resigned myself to Gree not listening to player concerns and opinions, as well as not being able to improve my profile to be competitive at top 25 anymore. This has opened up new possibilities, like reading a book, talking to my partner, looking out the window, and even venturing into the thing called outside. If that was Gree's real intention, they have done an awesome job.

Skimming the forum, I did not see the data presented quite this way... Increasing difficulty by 320% last cycle and 89% this cycle culminates in a total increase of 605%. In 4 weeks. Show me the avatar (outside of a newborn) that had gone up by even 2x-- much less 6x-- in that same amount of time. It's fantastically skewed!

One of our co-founders has the basilisk already (Rr). She said she got it from a chest during the EB event. Also, in the last antiquary event, we also had a different member that already had the knight before it won in the HRB (think 31/33). Anyway, it seems there are a few who have it and I am guessing that like last time, the missing unit for most of us will be offered deep into the HRB (31/33). :(

So there's been a decrease from the start of RB yet the health still remains way higher than last RB.
Last RB was ridiculous so it's still a fail.
Gree are you trying the double bluff here. "we do listen so we have dropped health"
It's not good enough. If you had listened from last RB then you wouldnt have raised it this time.

^^^ a decrease in the rate of increase is still an overall increase. We cannot keep up!

I'm still waiting to see some data/proof that we are finishing normal and heroic within hours!! Since that is Gree's basis for increasing difficulties, please have the courtesy of proving your case.

Gree, you really blew it this time. My guild was all set to finish HRB. We had heavy hitting "guests" lined up, we had a new jump room with around the clock coverage. When we saw that all bosses were increased 89%, we called it off.
For the heck of it, we decided to continue on into heroic to see how far we could get. Then all of a sudden, you drop the Boss' health to only a 30% increase. By that time we were fed up, and our "Guest" hitters decided to just farm bosses in protest. Still we carried on, and now we are just about finished with 25/33 (one boss left), and we're not even trying very hard.
If you had made the initial increase 20-30% like it ended up being, we would have spent a bunch of gems getting it finished. Instead, you lost out on a lot of spending.
When will you learn that if you make goals unreasonable, peeps will give up instead of going for it, and risking certain failure?
Not to mention getting peeps so frustrated that they give up KA completely.

But they never heard our feedback last time. They just doubled down. That's why we are so upset.

There's a difference between hearing and caring. Gree hears you. Gree don't care.

I was just wondering, if Warlord finished RBH, how many members they had left? 👏

Rebalancing the game was needed to make things more challenging to players and profitable for Gree. However, Gree went overboard with all events. Now, it is beyond challenging, into the realm of impossible for most players. As such, Gree will get less money as the casual gemmer sees no point in continuing and heavy gemmers are burning out trying to complete never ending quests. On the bright side, I have resigned myself to Gree not listening to player concerns and opinions, as well as not being able to improve my profile to be competitive at top 25 anymore. This has opened up new possibilities, like reading a book, talking to my partner, looking out the window, and even venturing into the thing called outside. If that was Gree's real intention, they have done an awesome job.

As a fairly decent gem user (I wouldn't consider myself heavy by any means) I would readily spend when I thought I had a chance at progressing not only myself but the guild in general. The level of difficulty that this event has been raised has basically demotivated me from wanting to spend because there is no way possible of reaching the dangling carrot. What was once in reach & tempting me to spend has now become far out of reach & not worth the cash needed to achieve it.
