A wild Fleck appeared!

I'm fixing up a few little things at the weekend (and something once a week every week afterwards) and starting plans for a new tier of Knights that shifts things up a bit...

There's a lot that needs looking at with the Knight EXP formula, Barracks formula, and the 'hiring skill' system in general, but when I have a concrete idea of what I have in mind I'll post it up for feedback and we'll go from there - hoping to have something to share at the weekend, but it might be during next week instead,

The goal (as always) is to maintain the people at the top's advantage from their dedication, but improve things for people joining tomorrow so they can see a real progression and the growth is more linear/logarithmic than exponential/linear as it is today so you get early gains a bit easier and it slows down later, so someone feels like they can get closer to the people at the top in say 2 years rather than needing 10.

I'll be reviewing how Knight EXP works to make sure adding another Knight to a squad of 3 or 4 makes sense with a new tier so people don't feel like they have to replace their Knights or miss out on them.

There's a lot of general improvements to be made to interfaces around the game, and tidy-ups to be done as well...

I've had a couple of mails from people (thank you!), but if you have any thoughts on something that could really use improvement, please get in touch.

At some point I also need to update some back-end database things and make sure peoples email addresses are valid, if they are active, so we can get login reminders going and periodcal emails every few months with what's new.

When I feel like the game is in a good place we can do some advertising, and a voting drive, and get some new blood in here,


Thanks,
-Ben

Sounds good, Ben...
The game as it is now, does all of the things that you are striving for, but very, very slowly over time. If I understand your general plan correctly, what you are looking for is to just speed up the existing process, which I support. I am sure that the slow rate of progressing currently in place is the main reason why people are turned off. There are very few on-line players who have the patience to persevere in KON! Regrettably, that number is getting lower all the time - in KON we are down to just 73 active players right now, which is close to extinction...

So I commend your efforts to try to save this game, and am looking forward to seeing some details of what you have in mind. Those of us still here will be very grateful. If there is anything that I can do to help, please let me know.

Yea it does feel really slow, and the chance of catching up the active players to actually compete with real people feels a really really long way off. Unfortunately if you can't compete its not worth putting the time in

i know the description just says about hiring knights and fighting them. but when i look at the first part:"Travel back to medieval England and become a Noble"

i think of being a noble and have resources in the form of retinue, vassals, servants, guards, money, estates, and family, politics, etc. i really think this game can do it, i believe there are players that will just come to be able to access those resources and feel like a real noble in medieval Europe. i eagerly wait for this
I like aristocracy. I like the beauty of aristocracy. I like the hierarchical feeling.~James Salter

Well I've been here for 9 half years and was an avid donator back in the days.
It hasn't changed much over the years :D some updates, changes are deeply needed if I am to still be here in another 10 years time.
