Mibbler – 38

I so very much prefer mud-fights over magma-fights! *.*
But after this thought the mud-fights began for real on the forum, and i suddenly tended to lean towards the magma-fights once more. You know what: i will just avoid both and only get into waterfights from now on!

*Lightbulb moment*

Then again we may just need a mud-base in Mousehunt, maybe it will end all dirty fighting… plus it will catch the rodents pretty nicely too! Shall we notify Jacob of this?

One more thing before the Mibbler’s summary of talk in the past week in Mousehunt: Did you mistake the Mystery Monday Mouse for an SB+ event? Or did you share this experience: “… the point of the game is to hunt mice and have fun and [the Mystery Monday Mouse] was a nice change of pace…”

How will you use your +5 luck bonus?

This weekend is the first ever +5 Bonus Luck Weekend. Besides making us happy, i suppose this weekend will be the ultimate experiment for the bunch that is endlessly debating and researching whether Luck boosts Loot or not! I expect some results after the weekend you statisticians! Rrrawr!

˜”*°°*”˜ AN/AM 3rd Birthday Party!! ˜”*°°*”˜

Happy Birthday to you AN/AM! It is  great you are still out there and Rocking! Yay for Paying-it-Forward & the Mousehunt-Community helping hunters out! To celebrate AN/AM is organising many different competitions to celebrate, check out the Party Schedule & Join in if you can!

Sphynx Wrath Vs Sandstorm MonstroBot

Huh? Why “versus”? Well, some of us will want to make a choice. And some of us just want to know which one to get first. Not that we have much choice in that, but still nice brooding about it… And yeah, sure: If you live in the Fiery Warpat, the MonstroBot definitely gotta be your style!
source:  Sphynx Wrath Vs Sandstorm MonstroBot 

Now this evaluation, and/or the reasoning inside it, may be the reason for the Sphinx Crsytal prices going up! So do be carefull an dont spread the word, or them Crystal prices will even rise above those of the Sandstrom Monstrobot!

GUIDE to Getting “THE” Three Traps Quickly

After all those three traps “make all your other traps look like they were made by Larry”…! – SDHoost.

But how to get them? o.o Oh! That’s how! … Nah, just kiddin.
The best part in this supposedly Guide, is the talk about the traps available in Muriday Market in relation to the Warpath-traps:  [GUIDE]Making The Most Out of Warmonger Trap Loot & Getting The Three Traps Quickly

ps: As soon as the thread starts talking ‘Polynomial’ you’d better go back to Camp and sound your Horn! ^^

Warmonger-Charm-Loot-Drop-Data-Collection

Does using the Monger Charm impact your changes of getting Trap Loot when catching a Warmonger mouse in the Fiery Warpath? Despite a busy real life ^^ Chad M. once more created a new fabulous form and spreadsheet for us to collect data regarding the Monger Charm:

Here is the form to submit Monger Charm Loot Data
Here is the published spreadsheet for the Monger Charm
Here is the thread for the Monger Charm

Of course we also are still wanting to collect more data for the Warmonger Traploot spreadsheet with or without charm. The more data the less biased, so please join in the collecting, whatever your results!

Unusual cheeses in Fiery Warpath?

Names that pop up in response to the question whether unusual cheeses can be used, are: Gilded!, Gingerbread – yes, and Ghoulgonzola?
Special remark by Geoff O. about wave 4 & special cheeses: “Since streaks are not a consideration for Wave 4, I always use crap cheese like this, though a Monger pillaged (or is it plundered) about 100 mozzarell’ once. Doesn’t happen with gingerbread.”
source: Has anyone tried unusual cheese in Fiery Warpath?

Somewhere else on the Forums there’s a serious discussion going on about the attraction rate of a new special Fiery Warpath cheese and the costs to make it a valiant alternative to gouda & sb+ (and not disturb the on-going donations)… throw in your 2-cents if you like:

Serious talk on the future of MouseHunt …

It may have had to do with the Moon Eclipse the other day, as many go a bit nuts under the influence of that type of occurence. (The end of the world has been foretold on less inducements.) But this was the sincere worry:
“3 of the most powerful traps just came out recently. They completely outranked all previous traps of the same type. (…) Bases should be capped with Magma being the strongest. Where will we go from here! @.@ Is this the End?”

There’s a good chance the devs will have a plan: new areas, new trap types, and possibly a trip to the Moon. I prefer to look at it like that, cause the other option is just too depressing.

Mibbler – 20

Hello Mousehunt Heroes! :)

Its been a week, and mainly that’s because i have written a Tavern Times on tuesday. I wont be able to keep up a paper on me own in the long run, and that is why i am investing in a group-effort.
We are still a too small team of editors on the TTT, even though we have the support of former Nibbler Doug, who guides us – giving a wide berth to all the pitfalls he ran into before. And the good news is: this week a new editor has joined the TTT and we just might come to be viable… Must say the new editor is not just anybody, so i am really happy with him, but i will keep it quiet until he ‘comes out’ himself ^^

I have been writing TTT’s before and doubled up articles inside the Mibbler. I will quit doing that now, and from now on just give you a link to my TTT-edition in between Mibbler’s. If you want to see tuesday’s one, its here: http://taverntimes.wordpress.com/ (edition 25).

I am planning to keep up a once a week Mibbler, mainly coming out on fridays or saturdays.

And i promise to paste the link to the review for this weeks Feedback-Friday underneath this Mibbler, when they are ready & available.

Mousehunt Newcomers Appreciation Month

I paid some attention to Newcomer Appreciation Month in the Tavern Times ed.25. And this Appreciation-month will for some of us mean they carry on business as usual, as many of us already help out newcomers and lower rank players… Although: even then one can think up a special effort, like the AN/AM does by organizing this:

In honor and support of “Newcomer Appreciation Month” the AN/AM will give away a total of 1250 Sb+ per week in the month of October to five Mousehunters who have assisted a Newcomer in a substantive and meaningful way. The help can be as simple as giving advice, adopting, gifting or helping in some other way.

Mousehunters find ways to battle and play :)

The Sisterhood of the Dragon Divas has challenged the Brotherhood of the Dragon Dominators to a competition on November 20th to see who can catch the most Dragon’s in a 24 hour period. The details are being worked out now, like needing up to 90 IH for participating. (Which means there’s a whole bunch of hunters active in the Isles these days!)

You can check out the banter and/or join your side from the links below…Should be a lot of fun! It is the ultimate battle of the sexes. ;)

Counting-Hickups, sorting the mice & other madness from Hunter-Gatherers

When we hunted the Festive Comet, Ronza’s shop and Heart of the Tiger events, the Developers released mice from different areas into the events arena and ToG, for the duration of the events. These included, the Hydra, Student of the Cheese Belt, Tiger, Gargoyle, the ASM, Dumpling Mouse, Worker Mouse and possibly some others. The problem is that these mice are missing from the locations tab. It means that whilst your overall mouse tally is correct, your location tally may be incorrect.

The plus-side to the changes the devs made in sorting the mice, is that the current system tells you what is currently available in the location so you can see what is still possible to catch. Plus these areas may open up again, but there is no way of knowing if those mice will appear in them.

Of course a thread that protests and is all about the split hairs in your mouse-tally, attracts the weirdest mousehunters ever! (Does it? Does lurking count?!) Before we knew it, it was all about collecting and gathering non-useful stuffs in the game. AND getting a badge for it, like Paul H. wants this one: “I want the cheese and wine badge for having at least one of every cheese and a bottle of bubbleh in your inventory.”

Which by the way led to the observation that we can’t collect the Spellbook Base parts again that were the King’s loot! Like Russel M. said: “I’m devastated to learn that I may not be able to collect the pages now that I have the base.” Ohnoooos?!
Steve Ch. rescued our dropping moods, with the faithfull words: “The Dabes will change it!!….They understand our sickness!…I have faith!…Come brothers!..let us link arms….and uplift our voices in praise…”

Of course a new incident followed this quickly when some of the gatherers discovered that it was possible to collect two different types of Husk. Some fainted by that discovery!

I will not go any further into this, brrrr, but i might just copy the list of totals you want to gather if you are a Truely Obsessed Collector:

44 Cheese
70 Traps
121 Crafting
17 Potions
21 Special
58 Collectibles
4 Torn Pages

Horn Tracker browser extension

Nick A. made a Chrome extension to automatically track data as you sound your horn, and has now added one for Firefox as well. He is building a new mh3-database this way that reflects our actual catches! And there’s a very easy way to get the data out of it for your use and reflection as well.
The system of the extensions and the database is already working, even though Nick is still adding and adjusting bits and pieces to it. But the more data the better, so join in if you like to!

You can find the Horn Tracker extensions in the first post here: http://on.fb.me/95dgY8

Amount of Tier cheeses and pots amounting to an Eclipse or not

Now there is one thing you must all know about the Gauntlet: there is not such a thing as a guaranteed amount of cheeses (or time spend there) with which you will catch an Eclipse! At all. ALthough i do personally know someone with 10 Eclipses (took 4 months), i want to passionately plea this: Please don’t hook yourself up to getting that Eclipse before doing anything else in the game.

And don’t be surprised if 1000 level 2 cheeses will only lead to 1 Tier 8 potion (and thus 1 tier 8 cheese – proof of that will be in the thread). Having said all this, i can now safely point you to the lists of declining cheeses through the Tier levels:

A few examples of how pots may decline through the Tier-levels are on page 2 of this thread: http://on.fb.me/bNnOIN

Let’s do it with 1 PT2

Mibbler – 8

It is quiet in the Kingdom. Not completely quiet ofcourse as there is at least one party partying, the AN/AM Birthday is on and still going strong for 2 more days ^^ But Otherwise it’s rater quiet… All hunters have something to catch (up with), and the bartenders are polishing their glasses. The devs are working hard on the Zugzwangs Tower, trying to get that Zugzwang’s magic under control ^^

But we did find a few tiny newsbites worth telling you…
.

* This week’s Feedback Friday will take place at 2pm EDT (6pm GMT)

The original message had a mismatch between the EDT time and the GMT time listed. But that was soon explained and cleared up by moderator and support-worker Michele and the ticker has been adjusted.

In the Mailbag thread in the Tavern Michele posted this as well: “Ideas/feedback on the timed areas (cove/acolyte) would be welcomed this week as the devs are looking at possibly changing the way the timed environments work in the future. This is not something that is going to happen now/next week/anytime soon so please do not ask for specifics – it’s just at the idea stage right now.”

There is still time to post your question (or suggestion) for Feedback Friday in the mailbag thread: http://tinyurl.com/mailbagweek31
.

* It is quiet in the Kingdom. So here the Mibbler could end…

But its not Mousehunt if its not completely quiet ofcourse! There has been at least one Rucous resulting in the banning of some more or less famous hunters. As most have missed all or many parts of what was being said or exchanged, and since all threads have been deleted, almost nobody knows what truely happened.
Let me tell you this: RadioactiveGoldmouse has let his witchhunt get out of control, and has gotten many of the old garde hunters mad and on top of that getting 3 more hunters banned. The old-garde retaliated, resulting in RGm’s ban (amongst others).
Ofcourse everybody is wondering: will there be a FBF-review this week?
.

* Incidents of Wiped Corkboards stay Mystery O.o

Many hunters have come back to their profile page to find their cork messages all wiped and gone. A clean slate as it were, altough some had handy notes in there that got lost. Michelle, our support-worker and one of the moderators, said this during the week: “Sadly a solution still has not been found for this. It seems to happen to only certain people, so no one has been able to replicate it to find out why.”

* Do hunters want a sneak peek? Feedback on the devs questions

The devs questions posted in last weeks news were these: How do you feel about releasing teasers like this more often? How much detail about new areas should be in the teaser? Should details in teasers be ‘set in stone’?
Generally the feeling is: “Keep the teasers coming, don’t give too much info. Finding things out yourself is way more fun.” The setting in stone is getting mixed reactions.
And someboy was so smart to point out that there have always been sneek peak-teasers: the shadows of mice on the mouse page that suddenly appeared and where yet to be discovered surely slowly build expectations! ^^

Ofcourse there were also threads in the Tavern being critical at the decision on Zugzwangs Tower after last fridays news post. Hunters were for instance worried about the Zugzwangs Tower being so suddenly changed into a Lord’s area: Is there enough time to do the approriate preparations and changes to make it worthy & rewarding enough for Lord’s and Lady’s?
The protest and pro and con threads have already died out and what can i say? All this for sure is a sign of a very much involved community ;)

“Zugzwang’s Tower Sneak Peek and Feedback”

The fabulous devs have done it again! They have listened to what was a clear and loud voice coming from the community. Yes :)

But i wont report the full news before having told the things that led to it…
Here’s some of the Forum buzz of the past days:

.

==== Forum Features: What’s keeping hunters busy? ====
.

* High Rank hunters are ‘Baffled’ and spoke up, loud & clear

Kathryn Ch. has expressed what an estimate of 30% of all hunters (being rank Knight and up) are experiencing in the game at the moment: Kathryn is no less then Baffled at the Zugzwang’s Tower going to be a Heroes area, as there is already so much ‘to do’ for Heroes. And we all know lower ranked players, who are having a hard time dealing with so many challenges at once. It is actually overwhelming for some.
The main point of Kathryn’s writings for which many hunters show support is this: Creating a new area for the higher levels would improve the game as a whole. There is a huge need of a new area for Knight and up ranks.

For a long time, the end-level players have been quietly waiting for an area and a challenge worthwhile to them in the game. We did hear them grunting now and again. But they have eloquently broken their silence in this long and growing thread that is nevertheless worth reading: source: http://tinyurl.com/baffledknightplus

While the thread unfolds – and gets a lot of rich and well stated reactions – lots of solutions are being suggested by players. The cry for Tourneys come-back being amongst those. Lots of analyses are being given as well. Kathryn: “The thing is that the game dynamic suddenly changes once you reach Lord/Lady level. All of a sudden all the forward progression stops. Where previously you ranked up to access a new area now you just rank up. Where previously you continued forward to a new level and new part of the story, now you have to back track and revisit old areas and set your own goals. Players are left in limbo to entertain themselves. And this is a BIG shift from how the game works at every previous level.”

Dev Dave popped in to acknowledge the importance of the thread, but he had little time and said nothing new. Oh yes, there was this tiny bit: he said that the game is slinking… which might mean its losing players, or it is not growing and not attracting any new players anymore. Again lotsa ideas, analyses and solution-wise, were being shared by players on this titbit possible-slip-of-the-tongue. Hunters pointed out that the game is losing high-ranked players and that this might be bad-pr and in need of attention as much as there is need to tend the early stages of the game.

To pick just one more of the many brilliant ideas out of the easyily-a-2-hour-good-read-thread: Pooflinger’s Paul H. thinks new areas is not the only thing that is needed: “I think it might be useful to see more focus on facilitating secondary goals – goals not vital to progression in game play. Secondary goals take time, you can’t rush through them, they keep you playing in an area for a long time, not just grinding for points or gold.” As examples fo secondary goals he mentions: Catch 217 / 217 mice, Join the Century Club, possible future collector’s badges…
Paul: “All of these secondary challenges don’t require new “content”, but they do foster a sense of achievement. Subsequent to these secondary challenges communities form. Using the Century Club as an example again (…) people on here are saying it’s keeping them interested and active – that’s exactly what the Devs need to encourage.”

All participants were hoping, and some were sure, the devs would react to this thread and its main points made, in Feedback Friday.
.

* Spontaneous Profile Pics …

The ‘I am baffled-Knight plus’-thread mentioned above coincided with a spontaneous change in profile pictures – which are mainly expressing: ‘higher ranked & forgotten’ or ‘give us a knight+ area or…’. This all turned into a little competition-thread a little later: ”Give them a new Knight+ area or…” pic contest!

O.o … But this did mean FBF was cancelled!

ps: Luckily the devs have more means of communicating…

==== Friday NEWS from the Devs ====
.

* “Zugzwang’s Tower Sneak Peek and Feedback”

From the devs newspost: “For the past several weeks, Jacob has been busy preparing the artwork for the launch of Zugzwang’s Tower. By popular demand, we’re releasing a teaser of what’s to come.
We’ve also noticed the community’s frustration in the lack of areas for players ranked above Knight. Zugzwang’s Tower was initially designed for Heroes; not quite complex enough to challenge higher ranks. However, as the area became finalized and early play-testing began, it turned out to be more challenging than we thought!

Due to the abundant feedback asking for higher ranked areas, combined with how this new area turned out during play-testing, we have decided it is best suited with the title requirement of Lord/Lady.”

= And so Zugzwang’s Floating Island has been spotted far off our shore, slowly creeping towards the Kingdom’s land. Those of brave Lord/Lady rank and above soon should prepare for the oncoming battle against hostile mice wielding the Tower’s magic against us! =

Do look at that Tower’s sneak peek, and possibly give your feedback on some of the devs questions in their post: http://apps.facebook.com/mousehunt/newspost.php?news_post_id=23

* A new MHpaper? What name shall it be called?

As some of us already know, MHU (Mousehunt University) is planning a Journalism Team that will write a MH newspaper. The writers/artists are ready, but THERE’S NO NAME!What should this paper be called? Editions of the paper will be posted on both MHU and the Tavern. The person’s suggestion who gets picked will win… 50k and 50 SB+!

* What Hunter-type are you? :D

In that same ‘rich’ Baffled-Knights-plus-thread it was mentioned on several occasions that there are different types of players, mainly with different goals in mind. Now what type might you be? Go read below and when your cheeks go red and you suddenly have a clear opinion, you have arrived at your very own mousehunttype!

1. Point hunter

You are in need of different ways of racking up points: say, a more consistent point scoring area paired to a lower point scoring area with one or two rare mice that give huge points or drop vital loot. You need to decide which strategy they should employ otherwise, even to you, its just a silly clicking game.

2. Silhouette collector

You need regular thrustworthy content releases as a hunter. You have no objections to other mousehunt-types rewards. You loose confidence and motivation when going without the shadow-fulfillment for extended periods.

3. Competitor

Bring back tournaments – you cry! Plus you would like a framework where hunters can create their own tournaments, selecting prizes, length, mice, etc.

4. Collector

You would not object to bringing the MH Century Club in game. You love that the collected goodies are now visible and you can compare Inventorys. The introduction of a ranking/badge system for specific collections would be so nice.

5. Extinctionist

You want to catch as many of a certain breed as possible. And you get a warm flush from these possible scoreboards: Mojo leaders, Acolyte leaders, White Mouse leaders, etc.

6. A Chef

You are always searching for undiscovered and unannounced traps/bases/etc in the game: continuously trying new recipes, as well as partially announced ones like the MSB from time to time. They could have an event where the first 100 (or 1,000,000) people to craft a trap can use it, or to make it extra hard: switch the quantities around for each individual unit.

ps: You a discoverer?

For bringing in and naming any new type of mousehunter still undiscovered, and giving a viable breed-description, you can earn a bonus of 10 sb+
Go post it here in the Mibbler’s thread! :D
