  • HoDA follies

    A few days ago I decided my alt wanted a third JD, and that the way to go about it was to run to node 18 of Metas, quit and go again.

    After I'd spent 100 gems I was definitely beginning to doubt the wisdom of this approach, but felt as I'd committed I should see it through.

    This morning I got to 3 remaining gems, having started on 501.

    That's right - 506 gems spent on 46 refills, plus naturals just running to node 18. And *still no extra JD*.

    So, the question is - what's the stupidest you've ever been in game?

    Hah! My worst:
    One time, I bought a GCP, but then noticed that my gem count didn't go down! I tentatively bought a CP, and again--no decrease! I was over the moon, I thought somehow the game glitched in my favor, so I quickly bought like 5 more GCPs...
    ..until the notification that I didn't have enough gems! It was a stupid visual error, not an actual bug. As soon as I restarted the game I saw that I had maybe 70 gems left--I tried to exploit a glitch, but I was the fool in the end!

      My worst one: Consumed a couple of JD before his revamp to free up my roaster. If that makes you feel better pixie359 .

        I am sorry you had bad luck, Metas dwarf drops is very low and it's very difficult to get a shale, Dace or advisor.
        So it's better to get it in a FP if you have the chance or competing on the leaderboard, I also have bad luck with nexus/ metas and RNG.

          I've a couple of follies which stick in my mind. Both involve the consuming multiple feature.

          The first folly was committed a little over a year ago when I consumed multiple giant epic toons into Snug the Bronto. This raised Snug to nearly 30% 2x damage, when all I needed was only to raise Snug to tier IV, or about 24% 2x damage. Snug is a little more useful now but it does not erase the pain of the folly.

          Then around 2 months ago, I accidentally consumed multiple of my blue legendary toons. I still don't know the extent of my losses. I guess it will become apparent when an old blue legendary toon becomes meta and I can't find it in my roster.

            In all seriousness, I have been lucky not to make any real large mistakes. Biggest thing was probably deciding very early on to be a non dupe player. It does force an extra degree of difficulty on you to be a non dupe player. Was very difficult early on before I had a very developed roster but I do well enough now. There are some bonuses though such as a much easier time managing my roster.

              I got a few various Shales in the same set of runs, so at least I can work on those

              I recently also kitted and forted from nothing 2 kitties, an Envy, a Gibbering Horror and a nightmare, and got to the top 50 in a PvP to get the same JD.

              Then my guild mates pointed out it was *Brogan*.

                I don't think I knew about the lost blues - I can really easily see how you make that slip with an accidental Leg on the consume pad.

                In terms of finding the missing the gallery might help a little - if you can see the pic you've had them, if it's got a tick you still have them. That is confused by multiples, if you've one left but consumed the rest, or by mythics, where you can have myths but it doesn't count them as there.

                And who doesn't love Snuggles?

                  Put me down as another who has accidentally consumed maybe 250+ legendary heroes, because they weren't fortified, and that darn consume all function that has ruined so many others.

                        I also consumed all my legendary unforted heroes in a Bethany Hawke, but I'm not sure if that was bad... the 800 limit was a huge pain, and I've been doing better after this.

                        Merging myth runes has also been the source of some painful mistakes, btw.

                        But also some events qualify as bad moves... I went for a top 200 with Spirit Champion as reward, when I wasn't strong enough to keep a hard fight. I did my best and reached to get it at 10K (in the old ladder, that was a lot), but it was a really, really hard grinding and a very big gem spending who was at few minutes to end in a fail. But... Spirit Champion hasn't been useful again, so it was a very big fail even succeeding

                        (although I remember a still more expensive event for Xebenkeck in which others failed even worse, even succeding)

                          My guild has a story of a guy who ground really hard for a top 50, I think for early Apostate Solas.

                          He came in 51, rage quit, and has never played since.

                              Cheating
                              The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                              Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                              Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.


                              Off-Topic Posting
                              Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.


                              Political Posting
                              Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.


                              Customer Support Inquiries
                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                              EA TOS English
                              EA TOS French

                              EA TOS Spanish

                              By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
