    Happy February everyone! 2018 is moving along and so is the Kano staff, so let’s talk about some updates for the games.

    New LCN Characters

    As mentioned last week, the new LCN Characters were released earlier today. If you’re over Level 4,000, head on over to your Profile page and take a look the Mastermind, Black Hat and Infiltrator. See which one suits you best and let us know what you think!

    This naturally prompts the question of when the other three games are getting characters. We don’t have a release date in mind yet, but when we nail something down we will of course let you all know! Until then if you ask me when they are coming out, that will be my answer. ;)

    NPS Surveys

    By now I’m sure you’ve been asked by a pop-up to give our games a rating of 1 - 10 as to whether or not you’d recommend them. Maybe you’ve seen it more than once. Well good news, we’ve adjusted the send out rate for these surveys and now you will only see them once every few months across the same network (unless of course you play on multiple servers).

    We do appreciate your feedback about the games, but we don’t want to beat you over the head with it!

    Kano Play Login Issues

    We’ve cleaned up some various technical goblins that were floating around on Kano Play this week. One was a redirect issue, and if you’re getting too many of them please contact Support and they’ll patch up your account.

    Another issue is where players would try to go to Server 1 from Server 2, but the site would just drop you back where you started. This issue should now fix itself, but for anyone stuck in this loop, a Support ticket will set you on the right track.

    Upcoming Content Releases

    I get a lot of questions as to when certain games are getting certain things and while I do try to stay on top of that it is handy to give you all a short update now and again.

    Here is the current roadmap for what you can expect for the next few months. Please note that this is not set in stone and is subject to change but if anything gets shuffled around I’ll make an announcement:

    New Feature Raid Event: March (more information about this as we get closer)
    New Pirate Clan Location: March
    New Viking Clan Location: Late March
    New LCN Location: April

    Some of you might also remember that we talked about a PvP mode being added to the game sometime soon. It’s still a little too early to talk exact details but we’ve kicked off our in-depth planning so when that is ready for prime time I’ll be sure to drop it here.

    When the new characters come out for the other games, what level do we need to be at to buy them?

    Guys your doing everything great as of late just for the record a couple of issues i and others feel could be dealt with

    A)I KNOW your reply is going to be "why dont you guys mute them?" Some myself included dont want to mute any players ,i like to know whats going on out there-As you know "smack talk" goes on and why you made lounge-a good move ,however and theres only a very minute number that do this- A couple of the more rude players will spend up to an hour DEAD in game while mouthing off about everybody ,knowing that there dead we cant hurt them!Would it be possible to consider players trhat are dead either cant use chat facilites in wc or lounge or even only have say 5-10 minutes then must heal or lose chat privilige!

    B)Theres still an issue with raids and raid killers-personally i only send personal invites to my own raids and am very selective what i join but no matter what you do theres 2 types of players can creep in and either ruin your raid or make it difficult.Theres the few that deliberately perish raid after raid or theres one who thinks hes so cunning he wont actually perish the raid-hell leave enough health that one or two attacks will perish so the NEXT person on if they dont check health-perish it -people get mad at them and the troublemaker sits back and laughs -to a lesser extent theres the bottom feeders ieplayers that will either JOIN EVERY raid with say 1 action with no intention of doing them all and get 2k on the 1s they know will finnish ,if we all had this selfish attitude no raids would be done-i know its being spoken of before but perhaps away of a raid owner to toss certain people out or say if you perish more than 1 raid(1 can be an accident,2????) in 1 raid week ,automatically are banned from the following !

    Just food for thought
    Thank you!

    glad to see a new raid feature coming soon, that was also mentioned a while back. if i remember correctly it was about the choice between the potential to get more drops that are a weaker tier or slaying the regular raid for the single high powered drop, could have changed quite a bit since it was mentioned though given the amount of time between the post and now.

    new PvP event coming is also some good news. definitely looking forward to how that will play out and fit into the current schedule or possibly a slight revamp to accommodate the event.

    Main question i have as of now would be that a while back i recall seeing a post about a possible change with the ba, dont believe their was any details since it was still being discussed as to how to hopefully increase and make the ba better. My guess is the challenging part is probably keeping it to where people can deal mass amounts of attacks but have it balanced so that it isnt coming down to who bought the most refils.

    With the new pvp event coming might be a good time to start looking into another event for armadas that incorporates the division chosen. sadly that is a dead feature. would be nice to see that further expanded upon since there is quite a bit of potential there depending on the route taken.

    LCN: is there going to be a fix released for when sending gifts to players and you've already ticked the box saying dont ask again?

    Hey Mitch, Guess X is the guy who wants to create Scripts for LCN. Maybe just even Fine Tune the ones he has already developed......... How is KANO going to handle this ?????????
  9. I think that's a Facebook issue... I switch to Kanoserve to do the gifting/collect Familia earnings, for some reason that doesn't cause the Facebook popup - although posting for job/etc help does.. It would be nice if that could be fixed

  10. Easiest way to avoid the second part of that problem is to make HEAL your first action on a Raid.. That way even if the person before or (probably more likely) the one currently attacking, has brought the party to very low health your first action doesn't kill the raid..
    I thought everyone did this?

    That's an annoying FB thing. If you play on kanoplay, you shouldn't see that.

    My first action is usually 1 attack unless I see the health is not in green already.

    yes indeed, i get daily pm's by random people telling me they have reported me and all sorts of nasty comments to go with it. id call it cyber bullying but really the butthurt is funny.
    i dont play that many other facebook games, however i feel if it was a facebook thing it would of been fixed if it affected across the board (i havent bothered to search up on fb dev network) or maybe the kano code is outdated in that aspect, or maybe its to do with game permissions as users can pretty much strip the suggested permissions down to nothing. lots of different angles to look at
    il find kanoplay later and try it, i tried playing on kongregate, depite the game being the same, i felt it really lacked not having the fb aspect.

    Mate ,if its health is full you cant make heal your first issue and sometimes raid spots go so quick you just wanna use an action-personally i check health before doing any actions -ive never being caught out myself with this trick but the fact people do it is SAD and many do get caught out!

    Each to there own personally id love kano to do away with 1 and even 5 attacks there pointless-they do the same damage to the raids health but dont do nothing attack wise on the raid

    i think people should be limited to 20 raids at only one time , this will help with bottom feeders , there's people in 200 odd raids and just sitting there .

    I agree about playing off the kano server - it's also so much faster than playing off of FB

    oh I hope they don't - that 20 exp pts eats away really fast so when I'm almost out of stam and the raid only needs a small amount of heal I hate wasting that 20 exp so I tick away with the 1 stam so that there is more to heal :)
