    Let's talk about multiscoping.

    Rumor has it that the Duggers have 20 scopes. Some families really do have a wife and ten kids... Ha Anyways.... Multi scoping is generally not encouraged, usually if you mention that you do it on the forums or in groupme your not going to be a very liked person, even within your own faction. What tends to happen is if you start multiscoping then your enemies start doing it, then you get into a war where ever person has 6 phones and nobody is happy. I've seen or heard about situations like this in a lot of different locations.

    So there are some areas in qonqr that are just near impossible to take/weaken in qonqr. Take Nevada for instance...complete dominated by swarm. Nobody can get a foothold in and dropping amps only results in them getting cleared in 30 seconds as swarm is just on their game there at all time. So what we need are nano-nukes. A weapon that will take out say 1,000,000 bots in one shot. This weapon can cost 500k qredits or 50 cubes($20). Now just so the guys with the deep pockets don't go apesh*t and nuke every little guy into non-existence, there should be a 30 day cooldown period after you use one so there is not excessive nuking going on by the mega cubers. If people don't like that idea, then my other idea would be for a super-nano-missile that has further range. Maybe a missile that still does the same damage as nano missiles, but increased qredit cost for further range. For instance 2k qredits for up to 1,000 miles. 3k for 2,000 miles, 4k for 3,000 miles and so on

    Faceless, Legion, or Swarm?

    The **** change operation was a success!
  5. 3 points
    As a relatively new player for faceless in a region dominated by swarm i can understand the OP. However, judging from the numbers i see here on a regular basis i think you are asking a bit much. My idea would be the opposite approach. Why not add a weapon with extremely short range, let's say like 5km that acts like a bomb and make it much stronk? That would add some serious home advantage. Or alternativley make attack formations lose power over range (exclude nanos and plasma). Maybe something like that would allow newcomers to at least get a foothold in their homezones. It's just an idea, maybe i overlooked something?

    Deploy Icons colors

    This is by design. Some day it is possible (I said someday) we could offer skins for your scope. So we will need a uniform color scheme. You can tell the formation families based on the shape of the box. Trapezoid is attack, diamond is defense, and octagon is support. It will take some time to get comfortable with the change.

    Possible new QONQR companion?

    Geophysical based game. Anyways, probably not a bad idea but, considering the issues with the three platforms and the development of blue for those platforms, I doubt the resources are available for development on a new platform. Seen the blog? Its Qonqr meets wheel of fortune!

    The fair fight?

    Atleast I am not legion and there for we can have this intelligent discussion rather than just compete over who has the best words XD ohhhhh someone bring the bill to legion cuz someone just served them extra double order of stir fried SNAPPPPPP If the devs wont make zone dueling for us I hope out there somewhere are those who would empty a zone and challenge one on one to a local battle. I'd like to see the transcript of deployments made / moves made as well that would be neat I think such events would be cool. I suppose if people give up on atlantis as it works now they can schedule their own tournements in empty atlantis zones.. have a team clear the zone.. put 1 vs 1 or teams vs teams.. like fisticuffs challenges.. find out what these warriors are really made of!

    @Qonqrd everyone you know must face palm every time you make a post. Its embarrassing. Mega cubers or whatever you want to call them are not great for the opposing team surrounding them but are great for the game itself (money) and for the team they are part of. Multiscopers are not not great for the opposing team surrounding them and bring nothing to the game but are great for the team they are part of. Both have a negative impact on enemy teams/players but only one benefits the game itself. Both can make people want to quit out of frustration. And that's not great for the game. @OP unlimited refresh is over powered. Its frustrating to fight against a ridiculous amount of refreshes. Unfortunately i dont see anything changing unless this game gets a lot more people playing. More people might mean more money for the company from various sources. More money from various players might mean they can limit the players who spend a ton and still generate a healthy income. The main issue i see with limiting refreshes is someone multiscoping and spending money. He now has two, three, four accounts to refresh with and gets the advantage. Its tricky.

    Bot Booster and Seekers

    Does anyone know if Bot Booster has an effect on Seekers and how much dmg they do to attacking players? Also on the topic of seekers, does the amount of skeers in a battlefield have any effect on how much damage they do?

    Q&A for the New Players

    What is this game all about? (short version) Do you like the board game RISK®? Then chances are you’ll like QONQR. Your job is to join a faction and help your faction (team) take over the world. QONQR is an artificial intelligence that appeared on the Internet. We don’t know where it came from, or its purpose, but we know it is powerful. The Legion want to destroy QONQR because they believe it will enslave and exterminate humanity. The Swarm believe QONQR will advance the human race, and we should protect it. The Faceless don’t care, and want to steal the technology for their own uses. Pick a side, recruit your friends, and help your faction capture the towns and cities in which you live, work, and play. What is this game all about? (long version) Right now an invisible war is raging all around you. At stake: the Past, Present, and Future. A rogue Artificial Intelligence has been detected infiltrating the world’s networked infrastructure. Initial hacking of the source code has revealed incredible new technology. It is not certain whether this AI seeks to enhance or destroy humanity. It is only certain that it is here, and that is has a name: QONQR.Those who first detected the presence of QONQR on the global networks have argued fiercely over its intentions. They have split into viciously rival Factions, each co-opting the known QONQR technologies for their own ends. Even now the Factions battle over the entire globe seeking to gather resources and prepare for the coming power struggle. Whether you accept it or not, the war is here. Your survival, prosperity, and even glory depend on the choices you make and the skill you demonstrate from this point forward. You will be asked to join one of three Factions. The choice should not be made lightly. Your Faction Alignment will define your place in the war over QONQR. THE LEGION unite under the shared goals of destroying QONQR and saving humanity by crushing the nascent AI before it can mature. They are led by AGENT SUNDAY, a former commander of the NSA's Turing Task Force which has been valiantly stamping out dangerous AIs for years. THE SWARM are convinced that QONQR promises an era of unprecedented technological advancement and human prosperity. Nanobot weaponry expert KIMYO NAGUMO leads this faction in the battle to defend QONQR and assemble its future tech, accelerating humanity's path into the future. THE FACELESS are a loosely organized faction of militant hackers who want QONQR's technology for their own ends, but want to prevent the unavoidable nightmare of human slavery they believe it portends. When they choose to communicate, they do so through an anonymous vigilante who goes by the name PROMETHEUS. . What do I do first? Create a base, then launch. Launch nanobots until your fingers hurt. How do I create a base? On iOS there is a Base icon in the menu bar. For Windows Phone, you will find a bases button on the home screen. These take you to the Base Screen where you can see how many bases you have available to you. Once you create a base, be sure harvest often by returning to the list of your bases. You can see how full each base is by checking the fill percentage icon. Bases stop collecting once they are full. What is the point of creating bases and harvesting resources? You need bases to earn money. Bases collect rare elements over time which you can then harvest for your faction in exchange for qredits. Qredits can be used to purchase ordinance (like nanomissiles) and upgrades which will help you capture and hold battle zones more easily. What do you mean, “launch nanobots?” Nanobots are the invisible soldiers generated by your device (which has been transformed into “Scope” by advanced QONQR technology). Nanobots fight for control of the battle zones around you.. From the home screen click “Current Zone”. Once you have selected your zone, you will be able to deploy nanobots there.. Initially, you are just a level 1 recruit. You are only going to get a small attack formation with a limited range.. Other solders have to practice with rifles before they get tanks; you are no different. Once you prove your mettle, you’ll get access to bigger weapons. Soon you’ll be lobbing missiles hundreds of miles. How do I capture a zone? If you play for the Legion and are launching nanobots into a zone controlled by the Swarm, you will capture the zone for the Legion as soon as you have destroyed enough of the enemy that your nonbots outnumber theirs. If you are the person who causes the zone to change control to the Legion, you will be listed as the Capturer of the Zone. The Person with the most nanobots in the zone is the zone leader. What is my current zone? How do you know? Your current zone is determined by your proximity to the nearest zone center. So, while you might be inside the governmental boundaries of a city, your scope (phone) could tell you your current zone is a different city, if that city’s center is closer. So I just keep deploying? Yes, in the early levels of the game, just keep deploying and harvesting your bases. You will earn XP (experience points) proving your loyalty to your Faction. You will level up quickly and soon have access to many more options. So all I can do is just attack? You only get assault bots to start. They are the most basic type of nanobot formation. As you level up you will get many more options, including bots that are good at defense, energy attacks, long-range deployments, formations that will buff the shields for all your faction-mates in the zone, and many more. My faction already controls this zone should I still attack? Yes, assault bots won’t attack your friends. You will increase the bot counts for that zone, which will deter opponents. Attack bots can defend your zone; they just aren’t very good at it. As you level up you will unlock defensive formations that are better for deploying if your faction already holds the zone. I’ll never knock out my enemy at this rate! In the first few levels your impact might feel minimal, but every deployment helps you gain experience. It won’t take long to level up if you keep at it. If you are unlucky enough to be in a zone where someone has already built up huge defenses, you may be in for a long fight. But remember, your scope moves with you. Go explore the world and find softer targets. Once you level up, it won’t seem like a toy gun against a battleship. You’ll get your big weapons once you prove yourself. We have already seen operatives brag about taking down 1,000,000 nanobots in just a couple days. Nothing is impossible. How do I attack a different zone? As you level up you will unlock more and stronger formations. Those new formations will have range. While at the early levels you can only attack nearby zones, as you level up your attacks will go 10-20 miles (roughly 15-30 Km) and you will eventually gain access to nanomissiles that can go hundreds of miles. What should I buy in the depot first? The smallest thing to buy is a refresh. We give you some of these as you level up so you can try them out. Refreshes will refill (or partially fill depending on the size of your tank) your bot bar or your energy bar. But after that, it depends on your goals. There is much to choose from. Do you want to be able to deploy more nanobots on every launch? Do you want to boost your offensive or defensive bots? Do you want to be able to launch missiles into towns far away? All of these things are possible. Look through the depot and see what you like. Most of the time you will need to buy an upgrade before you can buy the ordinance. For example, missiles are fairly inexpensive, but you need to buy the MX Rack Missile Launcher before you can launch them. Buy the upgrade first. What is the difference between qredits and cubes in the depot? A qredit (aka: credit, which looks like the child of a Q and € ) is the type of currency you earn in the game by harvesting your bases. Cubes (aka: power cubes) are purchased with real money in the Bank section of the Depot. We want everyone to be able to do everything in the game for free, by earning qredits, but for those who want to move a bit faster, you can purchase cubes to speed things along. Purchasing cubes is how QONQR makes money. We very much appreciate your support. Every purchase you make helps us to keep making improvements in the game. Future enhancements will enable you to earn cubes in game. Why can’t I create another base? Additional bases become available as you level up. At the start, you will get a new base every 5 levels. If you don’t have any more bases available to build, you will need to level up. If you have a base available, but aren’t allowed to use it, it is because you already have a base in that zone. You can only have one base in a zone. Get yourself to another zone, then create your base there. My bases are collecting credits at different rates. Your bases collect resources faster if your faction controls the zone. Do your best to either put your bases in zones you can control by yourself, or find zones with strong players in the same faction and put your bases there to maximize your credit collection. The game says I’m in a town that doesn’t exist. QONQR tracks almost 3 million battle zones of varying strategic value in 250 countries. Sometimes those zones include locations that haven’t existed for over 100 years. That’s pretty cool if you ask us. If you find a zone that looks like a duplicate or is just plain wrong, however, let us know on the forums under “Zone Corrections”. How do I move my current position on the map? You might need to take a car, bus, plane or train depending on which zone you are trying to get to, but if you want to move on the map, you need to move in the real world. QONQR is a location-based game, which means you play where you are. However we don't want to make you move to play, we want you to plan when you move. QONQR goes with you as you move through the daily activities in your life. Where do I find the Strategy Guide? Here: http://community.qonqr.com/index.php?/topic/1191-the-official-qonqr-strategy-guide/ How do I win? That is for you to decide. There is still much to discover. We don’t even know if QONQR is good or evil. Why is it here? What is its purpose? Help your faction further its goals and unlock all the secrets of QONQR!

    Creating bases

    OH!!! I see. Well no one else can see your bases. Is this a problem Cane? We have always stored the exact location of your base in the database, but until now we never showed them on the map, just listed them in a list by zone name. Some day in the very distant future, there may be a feature that makes the exact location of your base relevant (but never public unless you explicitly allow the base to be seen by other players). We have some ideas about how we could make bases more interesting in Version 3.0, but nothing solid. If that ever happens, you'll probably want to move your bases down the block from your home or work before you made them public. BUT AGAIN, it will be a very long time before we would allow you to make your base location public, if we ever do at all.

    Gold Status Incentive?

    Incentive for Gold Status So I know having a gold ring around your picture is super cool, especially since it shines and stuff for a week and what not... but that is currently all you get for plundering 1mil bots? This game is about taking territory... its basically a giant game of risk... but better. In risk if you control a certain amount of territory, you are rewarded with more troops to place at the beginning of your next turn. I don't think we should get more bots, but what if while having gold status... our bases harvested 50% or even 10% faster or something. It would give "stackers" like myself a (proactive) reason to fight more instead of just sit there and build giant towers. It would also help those who can't stack a boost in money to take on the big boys around them. Harvesting faster would be awesome but it doesn't have to be that specifically.. I just think we should get something more than a gold star Hope I get some comments and opinions from other people who read this and hopefully I'm not alone. I know Silver loves reading these and getting feedback from us all, despite what faction we are apart of.

    When is QONQR Blue coming?

    The graphics of blu look terrible and the wheel for selecting the weapon looks like it will slow things down Its a mix of 80's game graphics from Tron and up to date colours from ingress and an old landline telephone dial weapon selection (yuck). Let's hope you can carry on with this version of the game if you don't want to update, which I'm sure we will be able to due to no new features being added. Let's also hope it will run well on the holographic phones which are rumoured to be released just before blue in 2025

    Seekers? SEEKERS? Errraaaaahhh!!! Glad someone helped fund Qonqr but they could have at least read over the deployment descriptions first. This was the first month I really put an effort into Atlantis, hoping to get a decent credit bonus till it all got sucked into the matrix. On Atlantis, did anyone else get a million kills in Atlantis but the gold status doesn't show up in game? I have it on the online portal but through the app it doesn't show up.

    Gold Status Incentive?

    Nice idea. It doesn't take too long to kill a million bots, unless you are unlucky enough to a) live in a heavily stacked area or have total faction control in your area. In both instances it simply isn't possible to kill a million in a week. Cubes can help, but then what's the point of using cubes to gain a few extra qreds? Maybe the gold award should be based on activity/launches rather than kills. There are a couple of ops locally (UK) that buy the outline by Sunday evening whereas most ops attacking regular zones will take between 3-4 days. This will still happen with an activity based system but the new or non upgraded scopes can still obtain it.

    Exactly what we were told by the devs, nothing will change in game, just the neon copied graphics from ingress and working on Android 13 months and counting since they announced it and still no change in the game mechanics.

    Could you image having $1500 - $2000 to spend on a game, for just a few days worth of playing, and then end up not winning it for your faction? Think of what you could buy with $2000.
  27. 2 points
    Ok, to attempt some calculations, we have to make some assumptions. Let's just say he did nothing but seekers (that seems to be the bulk of what he did from the reports of quite a few ppl). For these numbers, I'll be rounding down a few times, because not everything needed to be purchased, and there will be a few remainders when draining scopes, and because I'd like to figure out pretty much the least amount of money he could have spent to obtain these numbers. That's 8 launches per scope, so roughly 2,300 scopes needed. A scope will cost 3 cubes (2 x 5k bot refresh, 1 x 100 energy refresh... yes, he'll need more energy every few scopes, but the remainders from the bot refreshes and not using a full 10k on seekers should handle it). So roughly 6,900 cubes. 6,900 cubes / 500 cube packs = 14 (13.8) packs purchased. I think it makes sense to round up for this, because it's much closer to 14, and it's reasonable to think he either could have extra cubes after atlantis, or that the variance in his bot use may have accounted for a full 14 packs being purchased. 14 packs @ $100 = $1,400 (yes, I know it's $100.99) Now, best case scenario, he mixed up bot use w/some ZAs, actually waited for his scope to cool off a few times... he MIGHT have gotten down to only 13 packs for $1.3k... but that would also assume he's going to buy the most cost efficient pack. If he was buying 100s at a time, it would be: 6,900 / 100 * 37 = $2,553. Realistically, I would bet this guy probably spent somewhere between $1,500 and $2,000.

    I am torn between my inherent distaste for cube spamming and my feeling of appreciation that someone feels this strongly about swarm.
  29. 2 points
    Yeah WTF? Anyone have a good estimate on how much that would have cost him? Obviously it would depend on what types of attack he placed. They were mostly defensive attacks which are the most costly when cubing, vs say plasma cubing, which is much more cost effective. My rough estimate without doing any serious math would be $1500 - $2500? The guy had no idea what he was doing Putting 250k seekers in zones with 100k HT. If the guy actually knew what he was doing he probably could have gotten swarm the win in Atlantis. But his timing and strategy sucked. Ironically he probably did more hard to Swarm then good. Anyways, thanks for your donation to QONQR Blue Matrix, whoever you are. Also, congratulations on taking record for total launches, Dings? Compasspoint? You guys gonna let him beat your record....

    The fair fight?

    You know that is something I didn't factor in there. Time. The player who can consistently and constantly launch wins against the guy who casually picks up the phone on occasion or has to work away from a cell phone for 8 hours. Good point. And yes I can't argue skill doesn't factor in, it just seems like less of a factor than other games is all.

You will see for yourself the quality of human attributes in other factions and make your own decision after. Either way I hope you will do your best to represent your faction with honor and not bring shame to it. that is the number 1 most important thing an operative should concern themselves with!

    Know the Switch Factions Rules

    I believe it may be necessary to change the name of the Mercenary award. Internally we called this "Rouge Agent" when we were designing it. I think we should make that the official name. The community has adopted (probably correctly so) the term "Mercenary" to refer to anyone who can switch factions freely. The double meaning of someone who can switch freely and the name of the medal is probably creating confusion.
