  • State of the Game (July 2016)

    Hey there, Collectors!

    The “dog days” of summer are upon us (the dark days of winter for those in the Southern Hemisphere!) and along with the seasons, Curio Quest has been going through many changes. Before we talk about what’s to come, let’s review, shall we?

    It’s Here!
    In the past months, we’ve introduced some new features and content. You can now let the AI take control during battles with the Auto Battle feature. (As always, we’d like to remind you that the AI is not as smart as you, so you may want to maintain control during more evenly matched battles.) To help resolve cases where purchases didn’t properly resolve, we’ve installed a Purchase Restoration button, located in the “Misc” section (those 3 little lines in the bottom left of the screen.)

    We’ve met Xolotl, BobSloth, and Merika, and stepped up our game on skins! The player-inspired Sun Shaman Ignitar (great job trra!) is now in the Skin Shop, and several patriotic skins (Uncle Razorfin, Minuteman Geddon, Liberty Jenite, and Fireworks Phantasma) are all available for direct purchase in the Limited Offers Shop. In addition to earlier generation Mythics, Scorpio, Ampaca, Singularity, and Hieron were added to the Core Summons.

    New content is great, but we also want to make sure existing Curios feel competitive and fun. We rebalanced several Curios to bring them up to speed with their Mythic pals, including Gustwing, Razorfin, and Rokisaur.

    We also fixed some longstanding bugs with Bastion and Squall. Additionally, we fixed a bug (thank you, Bastion!) that caused battle to go into a fail state when the active Curio was dead and the benched Curios were locked out or stunned. Now, a random Curio will be rotated into play from your bench. World Chat also underwent some bug squashing thanks to input from the Mods.

    Where Is It?
    Badging - As we mentioned before, sometimes in development you start down a path, kick over some rocks, and are lept upon by a hungry Trapthorn. Due to some unforeseen issues we’ve pushed back badging. We feel this is still important to add, but right now we have more exciting projects in the works that are taking precedence.

    Singularity Fix - Singularity continues to be an issue for any player who doesn’t have him, and is an “easy mode” victory in Survival Arena for anyone who does have him. Before we get into re-tuning Sing we want to try attempt some Survival Arena improvements. These should not only address the Singularity issue, but will hopefully make SA more fun.

    No Wifi, No Fun - We know that many iOS players who are on the AT&T network are unable to play when they’re off wifi. We have yet to pin down a solution, though this is still a big priority for us. In the meantime - we have some things for you to try.
    • Delete Data: Sometimes Curio Quest doesn’t work if you don’t have enough memory available. Make sure you’re phone isn’t packed too full.
    • Make sure Data is on!
    • Ensure that Purchasing is Enabled (even if you don’t intend to make a purchase).
    • Found something that works? Found another app with the same problems? Let us know! Any information helps.
    What’s Next?
    In development there can be many unexpected shifts in schedule that can be caused by a host of reasons. It’s always disappointing to us when we set our goals on something and don’t hit our delivery dates. It’s doubly so when we’ve told you, our beloved Collectors, to expect a thing and then don’t deliver it to you.

    This month, rather than trying to negotiate the fine line between what we’d like to do and what we think we can do, we’ve decided to share our priorities for the month. These aren’t all slated to hit this month, but they will be holding our focus in the weeks to come. Your feedback affects these priorities, so chime in! Join the conversation. We love to hear what you think is most important!
    Limited Offer Bundles - Limited Offers had some big hairy bugs when they were first released (and the second time too!). We have fixed the major bugs and will continue to polish this feature as we move forward, though they are newly available to all players.

    Singularity Rework - We continue to observe Sing and consider what can be done about this runaway hit in Survival Arena. There are some excellent discussions about this in the forums and we thank all contributors.

    Void Rework - Well, this has been on our plate so long that it’s going to be hard to live up to the hype. Void is a high priority item on our list for this month.

    Electron Rework - Electron needs a touch of love and will have him at the top of our Curio Rehab list this month.

    Survival Arena - Survival Arena needs an update with some of the latest and greatest Curios.

    Back End Architecture - We are currently in development of a new feature... We can’t say much about it right now but as we get closer to release we will be more forthcoming!

    Game not working without WiFi - Investigation continues, please continue to report any successes or issues you have around this bug.

    Brazil/South America Chat - We have plans to introduce a Brazilian chat!

    New Shop Curios - New Curios are on their way!

    Exclusive Core Curios - Another priority of ours is to add some exclusive Curio rewards to the Curio Cores.

    Prize Structure - We need more diversity in our prizes: more tiers and more things for Collectors to seek. We would like to acknowledge a consistent vein of feedback we get on prizes: While Cores are good long-term goals, they lack the immediate satisfaction that some of you are looking for.

    New Boosts - It’s time for some new boosts! Requests are welcome.

    Craftables - Craftable items are fun and give a reason to hunt through the game for components.

    More Forum Time - Maintaining a constant and timely conversation with you guys is important to us. We’d all like to spend even more time talking and responding to your inquiries and feedback.

    Estado del juego (Julio 2016) EN ESPAÑOL

    Hola,collectores!

    Los "días de perro" del verano están sobre nosotros (los dias oscuros de invierno para aquellos que están en el hemisferio sur!) Y junto con las estaciones del año, Curio Quest ha estado pasando por muchos cambios. Antes de hablar de lo que está por venir, vamos a hacer una revisión, de acuerdo?

    Esta aqui!

    En los últimos meses, hemos introducido algunas nuevas características y contenido. Ahora puede dejar que la IA (computadora) tome el control durante las batallas con la función Auto Batalla. (Como siempre, nos gustaría recordarle que la IA (computadora) no es tan inteligente como usted, por lo que puede querer tener el cntrol de las batallas mas parejas).Para ayudar a resolver los casos donde las compras no resuelven adecuadamente, hemos instalado un botón de compra de Restauración de compra (restore purchase), que se encuentra en la sección "Misc" (que son las 3 pequeñas líneas en la parte inferior izquierda de la pantalla).

    Hemos conocido a Xólotl, BobSloth, y Merika y intensificamos nuestro juego en pieles!El Sun Chamán Ignitar que fue una inspiracion de un jugador (gran trabajo trra!) Se encuentra ahora en la tienda de pieles, asi como las pieles patrióticas (Uncle Razorfin, Minuteman Geddon, Liberty Jenite, y fuegos artificiales de Phantasma) están disponibles para su compra directa en la tienda de ofertas limitadas. Además de la adicion de los miticos mas recientes, Escorpión, Ampaca, Singularity, y Hieron se añadieron a los core summons.

    El nuevo contenido es genial, pero también queremos asegurarnos de que los curios existentes sigan siendo competitivos y divertidos.Hemos rebalanceado algunos curios para ponerlos al día con sus amigos miticos, incluyendo Gustwing, Razorfin, y Rokisaur.
    También hemos corregido algunos errores de muchos años con Bastion y Squall. Adicionalmente, se ha corregido un error (gracias, Bastion!) Que causaba que la batalla entrara en un estado fallo cuando el curio activo moria y los curios de la banca eran encerrados o aturdidos. Ahora, un curio al azar será activado para pelear desde tu banca.El chat mundial también se sometió a alguna corrección de fallos gracias a las aportaciones de los Mods.

    Donde esta?

    Credzacionenciali-Como hemos mencionado antes, a veces en el desarrollo hay tropiezosen el camino, una patada sobre unas rocas, y se saltar por un Trapthorn hambrento. Debido a algunos problemas imprevistos que hemos tenido tuvimos que retrasar la credencialización.Creemos que es importante añadir esto, pero en este momento no tenemos proyectos más emocionantes en las obras que se están llevando acabo.

    Arreglar Singularity- Singuarity sigue siendo un problema para cualquier jugador que no cuenta con él, y es una victoria facil en el SA (survival Arena) para cualquier persona que lo tiene. Antes de entrar en el re-balanceo de Singuarity queremos intentar tratar algunas mejoras en el SA (survival arena).Esto no solo debe de abordar el problema con singulrity,pero esperamos hacer el SA (survival arena) mas divertido.

    No wifi,no diversion-Sabemos que muchos jugadores de IOS que están en la red de AT & T son incapaces de jugar cuando están fuera de wifi.Aún tenemos que precisar una solución, aunque esto sigue siendo una gran prioridad para nosotros. Mientras tanto - tenemos algunas cosas para que usted intente.

    -Borrar datos: A veces Curio Quest no funciona si no tiene suficiente memoria disponible. Asegúrate de que la memoria de tu teléfono no este demasiada lleno.
    -Asegurese de que los datos esten activados.
    -Asegurese de que la compra (purchase) este habilitada incluso si usted no tiene intencion dehacer una compra.
    -Encontro algo que le funciono? Encontro otra aplicacion con el mismo problema? !haganozlo saber! cualquier informacion es de ayuda.

    Que sigue?

    En el desarrollo no puede haber muchos cambios inesperados en el horario que pueden ser causados por una serie de razones. Siempre es decepcionante para nosotros cuando nos fijamos nuestras metas en algo y no ponemos nuestras fechas de entrega. Es frustante cuando les decimos algo a ustedes, nuestros queridos coleccionistas, los hacemos esperar una cosa y luego no les entregamos nada a ustedes.

    Este mes, en lugar de tratar de negociar la fina línea entre lo que nos gustaría hacer y lo que pensamos que podemos hacer, hemos decidido compartir nuestras prioridades para el mes.Estos no es todo lo programado a llegar este mes, pero van a ser la celebración de nuestro enfoque en las próximas semanas,pero van a ser nuestro enfoque en las próximas semanas.Sus comentarios afectan a estas prioridades, por lo que se pueden interrumpir! Unase a la conversación. Nos encanta escuchar lo que usted piensa, es lo más importante!.

    Paquetes de ofertas limitadas-Las ofertas limitadas tuvieron algunos errores grandes y peludss cuando fueron publicadas por primera vez (y la segunda vez también!).Hemos arreglado los errores principales y seguiremos puliendo esta función a medida que avanzamos, aunque son de recientes ya estan disponibles para todos los jugadores.

    Re-balanceo de singularity- Seguimos observando Singularity y hay que considerar qué se puede hacer acerca de este gran éxito que tiene en el SA (survival arena). Hay algunas discusiones excelentes acerca de esto en los foros y agradecemos todas las contribuciones.

    Re-balanceo de void- Bueno, este ha estado en nuestro plato desde hace mucho tiempo que va a ser duro vivir sin lograrlo. Voides es alta prioridad en nuestra lista para este mes.

    Re-balanceo electron-Electrón necesita un toque de amor y se le tiene en la parte superior de nuestra lista de re-balanceo de este mes.

    Survival arena-Survival necesita una actualización de algunos de los mas recientes y grandes curios.

    Arquitectura de respaldo- Actualmente estamos en el desarrollo de una nueva característica ... No se puede decir mucho acerca de ello en este momento, pero a medida que nos acercamos,proxima realizarse.

    El juego no funciona sin wifi-La investigacion cntinua, por favor continúe reportando cualquier éxito o problemas que ayude a evitar este error.

    Brazil/America del sur chat-Tenemos planes de introducir un chat brazileño.

    Curios nuevos en la shop-Nuevos curios estan en camino.

    Curios exclusivos en los cores-Otra prioridad nuestra es añadir mas curios exclusivos .Recompensa de curios en los cores.

    Estructura de premios-Necesitamos una mayor diversidad en nuestros premios: más niveles y más cosas que los coleccionistas buscan. Nos gustaría reconocer una buena consistencia de comentarios que recibimos sobre los premios,mientras que los cores son buenos objetivos a largo plazo, que carecen de la satisfacción inmediata que algunos de ustedes están buscando.

    Nuevos boost-Es tiempo de nuevos boost.Son bienvedidas sus sugerencias.

    Crafteables-Los articulos para craftear son divertidos y dan una razon para buscar en el juego los componentes.

    Mas tiempo en el foro-Mantener una conversación constante y oportuna con ustedes es importante para nosotros. A todos nos gustaría pasar más tiempo hablando y respondiendo a sus comentarios.

    Concurso

      what i would love to see is something that runs 24/7 maybe a progression scale so it would give people something to play


      LIMITED TIME BUNDLES ..so these are now going to be common love picking them up but if the would be common to all (say like once a month) i might save my cash and hope for a better curio i wold use...

      i would like to see boost removed from the promo gem thing

      would also like to see more of the 2 and 3 star boosted events it gives more people the chance to play PVP cause right now your running into nothing but 5 star teams.. would love to see rank PVP but i doubt there is enough people for that...


      overall thanks for the game and hopefully VOID remake is coming very soon.. spend 7500 gems and that is the only 5 star i got in the package


      will the new Sa hit with this SA or later in the month

        We want a better prize in Daily Login for Day 8, nobody wants an epic, even newcomers can affort one in the first day... so, that day 8 become for most players 3k Exp, no sense. Would be great if you give even rank V and VI fragments.

            yes. many games have this. It would be nice to have an exclusive reward for money invested in the game.

          any timeframe to implement the proposed changes?

            Any news on a new zone? New characters and tweaks are fun and all but a zone hasn't been added since last December if I recall correctly and that was a mini-zone that was only temporary. I'm closing in on 1000 energy simply because grinding the castle is beyond tedious these days.

              I'm not gonna write a long post this time. Just some quick thoughts on the things that felt 'annoying/bad' to me the last weeks.

              First of all, a huge thank you to SpaceApe for replying to my message in the earlier patch notes, as that's what I mentioned in my post, communication to players. Your comments were fair and understandable so I'm not gonna complain about that anymore.

              - Daryuz above and others in different threads mentioned the daily log-in system. The updated version a while ago was fine to me. A few weeks ago you added a mana enhancement on day 7. I thought this was a great idea but sadly it got removed very quickly. I'd like to see it come back.

              - Enhancements in general have become very rare to get. Some way to get them as rewards somewhere would be nice. Suggestions: include them in various days of the daily bonus, as rewards for events or even farmable via energy (ability to replay challenge modes every week with enhancements as rewards???)

              - Reducing gem pay-out. I'm not sure why this happened but gem rewards have been reduced in FW and daily bonus. Along with reduced odds in sales this makes gems less and less valuable. Upping the points needed for SA also reduces the number of gems players earn (or at least makes them have to work harder to get them). Just wondering if it is possible to revert to the previous amounts?

              - Not really a bug, but Bobsloth's 10x hit move slows down the game considerably. Especially when an enemy is spamming it every few turns

              P.S. I'm excited about the new curio rewards in cores you mentioned and the craftables.

              Comment


              • #10
                My idea is for us curio quest addicts to post or make youtube videos sppofing pokemon go so we can draw people into the game. Or when the server goes down we should tweet that whilst you are waiting there is this game that is similar. Maybe if the game was more popular there would be more content added regularly as most things are often governed by supply and demand.

                Thanks for listening

                  Need more jobs. I can think of some. Defeat 10 friends in pvp. defeat 20 friends in pvp. defeat 50 different players in pvp etc.

                  Why not give different rewards like special skins for club events !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
