    I would like to apologise to the 14 player who joined my raid boss. I am so sorry I wasted you time, your point, my time and my points. All round this was badly thought out. Having to check every clan member to see what level, then copy links and then send. Even making it public and putting it in chat was a huge failure.

    This I would have have preferred seeing more boss add to a level than this mega fiasco. My Raid boss is still going but realistically it is going nowhere - BIG TIME. Hate that I wasted my time and so hate I wasted the players who joined it. No chance of reward and they could have used the energy and stamina on bosses or drops for a far chance of being rewarded with a result

    We all now that the number of players are going down. KANO need to pay their bills, so this is perfect for them to make money. You waste lots of Energy and Stanmina, that you will have to refill, which in the end you need to purchase some. This is $$$ for KANO. I do understamd that, but what I do not understand is that when you put in all that energy and stamina, you still end up it comes....nothing, NO REWARD other then some coins and XP. As it is now, I am refusing to hit anymore Cave Dragon Bosses, till they have put this back into the BETA server, and make it more rewarding for me. KANO starts to look like the OBAMA administration, pay alot, and get nothing in return...

    The Raid Boss event ends in under 24 hours so for this go around you'll have to wait it out I'm afraid. We're investigating the potential ability to remove raid bosses from your interface in the future, however.

    I understand Kano is a business and having to make money, but over 27,000 actions and not one drop. that's ridiculous.

    I think there is room for them in the game, but I also think there should be some major changes -

    1. ABSOLUTE MUST - (maximum) 10% boss health regeneration upon raid death.
    Having a boss reset to max health is SADISTIC and unfair to the players - especially with the monstrously high health these things have. Any other game with this type of boss simply requires the boss to be healed before it can be hit more. Even having the boss recoup 10% of its health when the raid dies would be acceptable, but 100% from nearly dead is NOT.

    Kano, you guys KNOW it is impossible to take one of these down without spending FP, even with a full crew - so thumbing your noses at unfortunate players who make mistakes or get saddled with a moron in their crew is very disrespectful to your paying players. Which brings us to ...

    2. ABSOLUTE MUST - Boss owner has the absolute right to kick any player, regardless of total actions contributed, who kills the raid two or more times. No voting required. Owner owns the right. Period.

    3. I know other players won't like this but.. I think you should be restricted to joining a maximum number of bosses simultaneously (say 10). I see so many posts of people complaining that they are in 45, or 72 battles and the bosses aren't dying so they won't get drops (boo hoo). CLUEGRAM: The reason the bosses aren't dying is because they are full of the same type of parasytical player that latches on, does minimum effort and sits back expecting maximum return as they hope for someone else to do all the work; and that leads us to...

    4. Equitable reward system. 250 total actions for a minimal chance at a drop is all well and good, but the chance for a drop should increase significantly with the amount of effort put forth by a player (this in turn might motivate people who join to do more than minimal effort). Again, this is an issue of fairness. Especially considering that (a) the items are not earth shatteringly over powering and (b) the top damagers of each boss have most likely SPENT 30+FP to put the boss down.
    Its a slap in the face to them to get nothing then see someone who did minimal effort walk away with a prize.

    I was in on at least three bosses that went down. I spent twenty favor points each and got nothing more then a pat on the back. Even though I contributed in actions equivalent to the top three or five each time. For my level, that is saying something. And, to not get an item, I feel a bit screwed. Even though some players that barely did anything got something for it.

    RBs should stay...

    I have no idea if they're any good, if they're bad, if they'll unbalance the game, if they favor low or high level players, if some builds are now nerfed, if Kano will earn more or less cash, and I don't think anyone else has figured this out yet either.

    Give them, Kano, and us, the player base, a few more weeks to figure this out. Right now, all we can say is that we don't have the right tactics so these bosses are a challenge. Maybe the right strategy is to leave them alone, but to have that choice we need to have them around, and maybe for some players they're good news. Kano doesn't need to flip-flop back and forth, this isn't a political campaign, but an evolving and challenging game.

    This forum is for feedback, and people's opinions , so how many did you join and what was your personal experience with them.

    Joined about 7 of them and they all seem to be failing.. Seems to be a big waste of time, Stamina and Energy for what? Maybe some XP during the attacks and Healing, but nothing more.

    I joined 25 bosses and I've given my current opinion: keep them and allow us a reasonable amount of time to figure out what to do with them... In terms of my personal experience - it's too early to tell, so far it's not been a rewarding experience, but this could be because I/we have not figured out how best to "game" these bosses. With more time we would be able to refine our approach and try a few different tactics, and then, yes then I think it would be a good idea to present our view of the RBs.

    RAID BOSS IS A LOOSER IN MY OPINION. Even if reworked I will have to be persuaded to play them again I think. My apologies to my guild who worked hard for nothing :mad:

    Raid Boss Key Turn In
    Turn in your unused raid boss keys for a 24393 reward!

    REALLY?! I didn't know the keys couldn't be saved for future use. If I'd have known that I wouldn't have wasted the time and energy needed to get the keys. Some people I know never even got all the keys after so doing many adventures. I'm sure disappointed that this wasn't explained in more detail. The whole thing was confusing to play. It took so much time and attacks & heals to kill. There are So many disappointed players. This is the 1st time I've ever complained about anything since I started playing in 2008. Kay

    From the original raid boss thread, in the first post when it was announced: "Extra keys in your inventory when the Raid Boss event ends can be manually turned in for reimbursement."
