    TGIT! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans March 23 - March 29

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    FB: 22

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:


    Easter Long Weekend

    Tomorrow (April 3) is Good Friday so the Kano office is closed. As such any tickets that are sent in later tonight or tomorrow will see a slightly longer delay in answering than normal, but it is back to business as usual next Monday (April 6).

    Support Report with your favorite burrowing nocturnal mammal and Answerpreneur, Aardvark!

    Happy April, players!

    This is a short week for us, as Kastle Kano will be closed on Friday for the Easter long weekend.

    The Spring newsletter went out this week, along with a complementary reward item and boost. Apologies to Zombie Slayer players on Kano Play, who ran into issues with the Stamina link! If you haven't already claimed your rewards, you can do so here.

    A quick reminder about Support! The ticket queue is sorted by message time, and updating your ticket before we can reply will reassign the time stamp, effectively bumping it to the back of the line.

    Our Support team prides itself on getting to messages well within the stated 2 business day limit, but may miss tickets that keep getting updated before we can open them.

    If we haven't yet responded and you would like to send us more information, just create a fresh ticket instead updating your previous one. We can always merge tickets later if they are part of the same issue.


    who is glad Kano's April Fools post had no negative cornsequences.

    Terrible Joke of the Week

    He wanted to see a butter fly!

    I am ready to throw in the towel with this game. 286 Chiefs and no hope

    this is a statement from kong/armor world chat, Kano we really need some help. if the new people that join cant have somehope of ever reaching their max, we will never keep them and fail

    Unfortunately when it comes to Kongregate and Armor Games were are very limited in what we can get in terms of promotions. Sometimes they will toss us new users (we've had a significant uptick of installs on Pirate Clan within the last 24 hours for example) but other than that there's not much we can do. We do have the option to ask for promos, but right now they are only interested in Mob Wars: LCN. :(

    I wish there was something we could do but our hands are tied here. We will continue to support you guys over there and do what we can.

    I hate to suggest something new that will offend older players who feel robbed, but I will suggest to keep players despite the population issues you give x amount of captains/chiefs to those who play but cannot fill them. for example 20 captains a week added to the recruited captains based on a sincere effort at play, say 75% of the weeks gamerpoints or higher. this would enable a player to fill their recruited in about 1 yrs time of active game play. helping us keep current players frustrated by the lack of captains and encourage new growth because people see away to grow, where as right now they hear we are a dead server

    I gotta agree, when playing on a non social network , after seeing how platforms do not fare well with getting new players, and people have paid money for their captains,and now ya would want Kano to give you basically hireds for free,if I am understanding your suggestion,don't think that would go over very well,nor should it. IMO

    absolutely not! please do not do this! we have all had to work hard to get our max, and there is enough "given" out in the game already.

    but these captains would not go to the hired section they would still have to work for those. these would add to the recruited side, helping to keep people playing longer and encouraging new people to play because they will now have the ability to reach 2000 captains like everyone else. More peope playing more potential income for the game and the devs. every business needs new customers, that bar down the road that has the same 10 od guys either goes under for lack of income, or its customers move,leave and it has no customers

    here are my thoughts: no. just create a bunch of alts. that's what they do on mob wars.
