    Believe me, you'd rather I wear the mask. Unless you fancy some nightmares. Which can be arranged.

    Stelly of Legion will be missed by all who knew him in his position of 18th on the FL state leaderboard. In unrelated news, anyone who would like to watch Stelly's demise can tune in within the next 12 hours or so. Cheers, all. And happy Qonqring!

    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

    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.

    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.

    How about just rename it to qonqr real estate game. Spend Cash to buy zones and who ever bids highest gets the zone? Better yet for all you ... peeing contest personalities out there just get rid of all the zones and make one single global score board that simply costs 1$ per 1 point added to your score. The winner of course will be who ever has the most expendable income. And it would reduce the over head costs of designing and coding the game itself there by increasing its profit margin. Maybe rename the game to "i can spend more than you nyah nyah nyah nyah" or similar? This message started as a joke, but maybe there is a kickstarter or indiegogo project here? "Hate grinding and leveling up? Try the new dollar score game! 1 point = 1 dollar. Now, in this exciting massive multiplayer self validation game you can compete with players from all over the world to see who has the biggest ego and the deepest pockets! Do you have what it takes to spend more money than them? Compete with your friends family! Show them who is the better person by crushing them with your savings account!

    Qonqrd is a spokesperson for a group of ops not an actual player,maybe its better than having numerous ops on one thread. I sort of agree with the feel of bullying because of Dodgys spending habits but its not really. He's just doing what any other Qonqr player would do when given the resources. I would if the missus let me. And if I was minted. So the answer to the original post from a lot of ops is, its not bullying.
  16. 1 point
    Then check your original post. That is a perfect example. If only there was a way to search the internet for information. Here you go: http://www.qonqr.com/help/terms-of-service/#abuse Please never turn your hand to comedy.
  17. 1 point
    To be perfectly honest, I think qonqrd should either stop whining or quit. No one is forcing you to play. And your constant complaining over Facebook, Twitter, the forums, and wherever else you maybe complaining is ridiculous. Either rally your faction and fight off faceless or quit. If you don't wanna spend the money for cubes, then recruit 20 more ppl. But your posts of constant whining are annoying.
  18. 1 point
    I fail to see the point of this post, when does a player using the resources at his disposal constitute bullying? If I buy 500 qubes, annihilate my neighbour (who never buys qubes) and take all his zones does that make me a bully too? If the player is sending you abusive threatening ingame messages then report them through the usual channels, if however you’re feeling intimidated because the player is outspending you then perhaps it’s time to find a new game to play. While the game model is ‘free to play’, most of us who have played for awhile are under no illusions that it’s actually ‘pay to win’, therefore those with the deepest pockets will come out on top, if you don’t like it then you really do need to find a new game to play because it’s not going to change anytime soon. At the end of the day it is just a game, nothing more…

    ah so that's how it works, thx jadem i guess i'll pass on the deal. that's kind of i interesting though that windows would limit access like that. android tabs will use any app without differentiating between phone/tab, and iOS will let a phone play any phone category game and ipads have acesss to both iphone and ipad category apps.

    Weapons Cache

    LOL.."because let's face it, some people hate everything we do". I really like this game and haven't had many issues with anything updated and changed thus far. I might have described Sync-Lock as a Qonqr STD..but as a person whose since been infected and had it's impact amount to nothing even without inoculating..I might've overreacted, lol. This change, the weapons cache, I like more than anything yet. I can already see the absolute chaos and hilarity this will bring..and I don't mean it as snide..I genuinely love this idea! Let me put forth a scenario.. Let's say there is a large, well organized team of players comprised of 10 free to play operatives and 2 elites who don't mind sharing. Normally, they would plan a big op 2 weeks out so as to get everyone on board. Now, instead of a normal attack, you have 10 players with 70 bot refreshes plus your elites. There will be area's and groups that will experience a whole new level of shock and awe devastation..(sniffle, tear wipe)..it'll be beautiful! I know 70 refreshes aren't that many..but for big..and I mean BIG groups..just IMAGINE the destruction! Versus a large, well organized team with one or two benefactors who would buy cubes anyway..no tower would be to tall to topple and no area would be to well defended to overrun. Maybe my scenario is a little overblown..but I see enormous potential here.

    Misconceptions about the factions

    from qonqr site; 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.

    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.

    Gaining a Foothold

    LOL. I'm going to have to word things very carefully in the future. Apparently, I have to get quite specific around you. Legion and Swarm are groups of people, but are not representative of ALL people. The use of "People" was a colloqualism, I could have just as easily said "Some people," "Everyone," "They," etc, etc,. I can write a formal post in APA or MLA in the future. Maybe I'll even throw in a Venn diagram. I cannot speak for all people as I'm not omniscient, nor do I have the authority to do so, and so I will stop assuming people will not take everything literally. Saying all that, I think you're cool. I think the game is cool. I'll even grant it to Faceless by extension.

    Don't cave to anyone asking you to join to get a foot hold. Reach out to the top players in your area, coordinate some attacks and then take something for yourself. That's what I had to do to get going in my area.

    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!

    Exporting as an SVG would allow lossless scaling. But overall I like it. You could make a solid white flame and put it on purple background to use as phone wallpaper too!
