    You Siamese guys don't like low health players do you? I might have a suggestion to really solve the low health leeching problem... and it's and easy change that Kano can do...... Anyone interested?
  2. by all means suggest

    but i hope your not calling us siamese

    we're birman a much better breed :D

    LOL I beg your pardon, I do not know much of cats... Birman then...

    There must be an acceptable average for health per level...
    So my suggestion is this:
    1. If a players health is below the average, let the price for healing go up SIGNIFICANTLY, the less health a player has, the more he must pay to heal...
    2. Drop the bounty amount SIGNIFICANTLY, If your health is below the average your bounty will be limited to your health, but if your above the average, bounty must be normal.

    Also the average health should be mentioned if your below the average otherwise players won't know... and send out a message stating this change, That would increase the disadvantages of leeches and low health players in a fair way... Right now the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, so to solve the problem, it must be a handicap to have low health, apart from bosses, per stamina unit you can get more XP per fight than from a boss, I leeched my first 300 lvls in 10days without once attacking a boss, because of the amount of advantages of low health... but that isn't fair in higher levels, so players must be capped severely in levels above 300 for example...
  4. part A of your suggestion has been suggested already

    i like the 2nd part though bout bounty

    that would work nicely

    if a fair warning is given then they got enough time to get health higher

    but if they ignore the warning then to bad :D

    A really good suggestion, it would make low health leeching more difficult and players would actually be forced to invest more in health than the bare minimum of ~1000 health to be able to get decent xp.

    By the way, my FB viking was at level 500 in roughly 10 days. Totally focussed on PvP and wading through a sea of dead accounts. And with low health you can get more battle wins out of enemies.

    And please keep in mind, the Birmans are actually called Sacred Birmans. We aren't the common Siamese with its loud voice. We are sophisticated and voice our opinions in a reasonable way.

    Thought it could have been suggested before, like Einstein said, "every thought has been thought of before", well I think It was Einstein

    Any ways yes I agree and if a warning has been given no one can get angry and call it unfair... although there will be haters, the game must be fair, we all saw what danish blimp said, "make gaem fair now" I'm not sure about the "gaem" but this is an easy way to make the GAME fair what health is concerned
  7. danish blimp is a alt account(i wont say names but i think it was a common type cat)

    I am really sorry about that, I will show the utmost respect towards Sacred Birmans from now on...

    Okay so I'm not THAT good, thought 300 in 10days was quite good, yet I am proved wrong, and those dead accounts really help a lot hey? It would take a lot longer without them

    Thank you, To be honest I read most of your ( what shall I call your group? the Sacred Birmans?) well all of you guys who don't like low health leeches posts and this money issue kind of popped up.... Money makes the world go round If you limit people on whats Important you'll force them to change...

    We call us, with a bit of self-irony The KFSC - The Kano Forum Spam Crew, because most of us have a high number of posts. And we have a tendency to derail threads and do some good-natured, socialising spamming.

    With really low health, many free hours and a bit of determination and high amounts of stamina you can really breeze through the lower levels like a tornado. And if your attack value is high enough, no one can fend you off. You can even go onto some low-level bosses (Dragon and up) and get some drops there.
  11. yeah i remember when para use ta have the most posts

    that didnt last very long.......

    dragons for sure.

    thats what i tried not to go below when i had all those godpoints :D

    Ahh cool, then that's what I'll say when referring to the group... KFSC...

    Yes determination is a big part of it, I just can't sit in front of the computer that long, Believe it or not, but sometimes endless winning bores me, I am so far strong enough to take on about 100 chiefs more than what I have, I have 204, with facebook's blocks slowing me down that's the best I can do for now
  13. heres a little strange fact(unless its been changed)

    but you really use as much chiefs as your level(unless its been changed)

    so if your a level 300 you really only use 300 chiefs and the others dont help

    the details show they help but in all reality unless its been changed they really dont

    and far as facebook blocks

    one reason i dont focus on fb

    myspace and hi5

    Yeah I've been branded as a spammer because of adding more than 200 people on one time, which is lame because everyone i spoke to said that's odd they don't normally block that quick, I guess they had a nick for me, so now today I'm on parole basically I just got off my 7 day block, now I'm taking it slow...

    Thats interesting I heard about that some time ago, never actually tested it
  15. myspace has no block(i added over 700 in less than 1 day)

    hi5 has a limit but it warns when your getting to it then cuts you off once you reach it

    its a pretty generous limit to

    Wish Facebook could make their Limits "generous" too It gets quite irritating

    facebook being generous? You've got to be kidding me. If it doesn't fill their pockets or provides loads of valuable information they can sell to anyone, they won't show anything resembling generosity.

    Sorry, but FB is the most annoying of the 3 social networks and the least userfriendly. MS doesn't even demand that you use your real name or date of birth.

    *edit* We did it again. Derailing of Thread: 100% complete.

    Considered derailed... I just hope Kano don't disregard the suggestion of the health solution, that could really work...

    I must agree with you, facebook is just in it for the money... I haven't tried MS or Hi5 yet so I can't really say much about them, but FB is annoying
  19. Love the part about lowering the bounty cost, anything that lets me chainlist that buttmunch mrtyndall for mere peanuts is a good idea in my book.

    Now there is one additional thing I must mention, not to be a buzzkill or anything but just in all fairness here. If Kano changes something about the battle system that nullifies the advantages of being a parasite or a tyndall then they must allow a ONE TIME FREE and complete redistribution of all players skill points. I say this because the low health players built their characters based on how the battle system was and has been set up, if the battle system all the sudden changes and their characters become worthless then they should be allowed to rearrange the points they earned to fit the new game system since they had no control over the system changing. This is different than the addition of bosses because when bosses where introduced (long before I even started playing) battle players could still level off battles and win fights. If the basic fight system were changed then there would be absolutely no way for the low health players to level and they would be forced to quit or start over, bad for business there Kano. The ONLY exception is that tyndall will NEVER be allowed to redistribute his skill points and every time he attempts to add more it actually subtracts that amount from his stats.
  20. FB is a terrible network for gaming. Not only are there the asinine privacy issues and annoying as hell analretentive policies of said network but you can be deleted for the stupidest reasons (adding too many friends for clan, sending too many gifts etc), imagine you build a character up into the thousands of levels and just like that poof you're gone and their customer service is nonexistent, you have NO recourse, you are just screwed, right up the tyndall.
    FaceBot is made for networking with friends and colleagues and finding people you used to know from high school. The other two networks are much more gamer friendly.

    I would like to see Kano divorce itself from being restricted to the various networks and run its games off its own independent website but thats probably impossible for them due to financial or contractual obligations.
