    A bit of tips for new comers on the first tower u encounter... While it may seems easy to bring in your big friends and wipe the floor.. I experience with smaller friends and my loots were much better! Need more testing to be sure.

    Also try to catch more pets so you fuse them you will need them in the PvP as I notice most new players using the tier 1 pets.. So basically you will most of the time!

    I can only guess he/she may be saying it's a very enjoyable game, so why stop/block me playing it longer with energy timers.
    It's a hypothetical question I know and we know why Devs do it. *cough*
    But it's valid point to make (constructively) in any thread and perhaps can be seen as a semi endorsement of the game in question.
    I try to keep an open mind on both sides of the arguement.

    But that's not what happened. They specifically did not play the game, and in fact say they never play a game that has an energy timer in it. So what is the point of commenting? To piss off the people who are playing the game?

    That would be like if this was a music blog, and I hate country music, and a new county album came out, so I go into the thread for that album and say "Hey everyone, I hate country music, in fact I'll never listen to or buy a country album. There's always people saying that they love country music and that if you actually listen to it you might like it, but none of that matters because I will never listen to any music that is country in the first place. Ok, bye!"

    The problem isn't that it has an energy system. It's that it took 7.5 hours to regen today. Which is used up in a few minutes on 3 heroic dungeon runs.

    on the internet
    feels like i hit a paywall already it's impossible to progress now all the monsters do like a bunch of damage and even though i replay levels to grind i don't feel any stronger and not much item drops

    I've been playing the game since the soft lunch on iOS (~March). Before that the game was available in the browser on Kongregate, that's why some people are so high level already. I really like the game so far and it's definitely not p2w.

    I'm a lvl 99 dps. If you need any help with dungeons reply with your username and I'll add you :)

    Here is a helpful guide to get started:

    No forced ads.

    You will encounter a special ad-chest once in a while in dungeons. You can just skip that if you want. Also when in town sometimes you can watch ads to refill your energy or get a small amount of gems. However you have the option to turn of ads completely.

    The first part is incorrect. The power of friends does not affect your loot.. I tried quoting the guy saying that lower power friends make you have better loot btw..

    That is not a paywall since you can't really pay to progress any further. What you need to do is farm the dungeon in the last zone that you can complete, preferably on heroic since its better item find chance on heroic, to find better gear. And also upgrade your rare gear once or twice.

    You gotta love to grind to enjoy this game :)

    Did u bring in powerful friends? I made about 5 runs using powerful friends and none of my loot was better than current and just now I made 1 with lower level friends and I got a better equipment. Not sure if affects looting. I am level 13 and I brought in level 120. But later on level 50

    I'm thinking I'll have to give up on this one I can handle all the free mechanics but loot is rarely ever an upgrade, progressing seems to rely on grinding out earlier levels to get strong enough to beat the next or buy things.

    Then the capture mechanic sucks paying so much gold for a low chance or capturing something each time is rubbish.

    I think I'm out, as well. Feels too random to me, or that I'm too unlucky or something. Just doesn't feel consistent, hard to explain. I have several other Kongregate games on my phone, but this one doesn't feel quite the same caliber. Good to hear others are making good progress, though. Probably just me not grasping it. :)

    A lot of your success in the early game seems to rely on having solid familiars. I do think that Gear needs to play a larger role. All together, I actually quite like the structure of the game.

    But the big issue, in my mind, is that these types of games are severely competitive. The reward structure, by which you're able to compound gains, relies upon competing with others for rankings. But we've stepped into a game that's 4 months old. There's a bunch of players maxed out at end game who you won't be able to unseat for rewards for weeks or months. Walking into this type of game 4 months late is disastrous.

    This game could be much better. I rarely get better equipment, and the capture mechanic really sucks. These are really my only gripes. If there was an in app to remove energy I'd buy, but that's about it. I wouldn't pay for much else.

    That is literally the definition of paywall. Grind a ridiculous amount to advance, or pay money for better loot.

    Well, no. Since you can't pay to advance further it's not a paywall imo. You just have to keep playing.

    Um yes.

    You can pay to further advance.

    By treasure chests (gem only mind you!!!) or by getting pay2win equipment. Definition of pay2win.

    Level 16 now and got 1 familiar (some strange ogre) with over 40 fails... in a row.... Really lame catch rate system.

    Also stupid buddy system where you can invite level 50 friends to play dungeon.

    Gem payout is abysmal and let's not get started on the energy system that lets you play once every 12 hours..... zZzZZzzz

    Stupid lame game is lame and stupid. :eek:

    I've played (and still play) several Kongregate games on my iPAD. The frustrating thing about them is that the games themselves are very good and usually high quality, but their consistently stingy IAP and energy system brings them down.
