#2116 christmas texts competition

Posted by mogiks on 18 December 2013 - 12:12 PM

Hero name: ellax

Server: US1

 

And my entry:
 

Christmas Eve: for the first time all year, the Dark Wing team room was quiet. Most of the members had returned to their families for the holiday. Sadly, one person had to stay behind to deter others from attacking, and on that day that sorry duty fell to me, Ellax. I lounged disconsolately in one of the chairs, watching my feline sidekick destroy some Hasselhoff records. Without meaning to I began to doze off.
 

The emergency siren jarred me awake. Red alert! I jumped up and dashed to the console; the screens before me flickered on and I was confronted with the distressed face of the mayor of Yollywood, Patrick Moss. "Ellax! Thank god someone's still there. I feared everyone would be gone for Christmas!"
 

"Mayor, what's happened?!"
 

"The Grinch has kidnapped Noelle Claus, Santa's daughter! My son Chris is distraught. Their wedding was supposed to be today! And now Santa has shut down all his toy factories and ordered all the elves and reindeer to look for his daughter. If we don't find her soon, Christmas will be cancelled!"
 

I noted how panicked he looked. "Mayor, don't worry," I said firmly. "I assure you everything will be alright. Leave it to me!"
 

20 minutes of research on the internet was all it took; these days even villains leave a trail online! "Come on, Apollo!" I said as I ran to grab my cape. My sidekick leapt eagerly to my side. "Let's go save Christmas!!"  
 

Within ten minutes we had reached Chez Pierre, an abandoned French restaurant on the edge of Yollywood. I now knew that this was where Noelle and the Grinch had their first date when they were teenagers! Once I had found out they'd dated, it was quite simple to deduce the Grinch's plan. Of course stopping his old love from marrying the mayor's son was his primary motive; ruining Christmas was just the icing on the cake!
 

After surveying the room below, Apollo and I burst through the skylight and in the ensuing confusion Apollo jumped onto the Grinch's face to block his vision while I restrained him and tied him up.  That done, I went over to release Noelle Claus, who had been gagged and tied to a chair in a corner of the room. "Are you okay?"
 

"I'm fine!" she said, glaring at the Grinch with hatred. "He didn't hurt me. But am I too late for the wedding?"
 

"Not at all. There's a car waiting to take you there outside. Go on," I said, smiling as I donned a pair of shades. "Marry Chris Moss."

Hero : UDareUTake

Server : US1

 

Ancient history speaks of a great battle between the masked hero and the powerful Grinch Lord-Otila.

 

Otila was born in the Royal Grinch Family. In his younger days he was cast out of the family during christmas due to his inability to communicate with people and the bad habit of making rude remarks at his father the king, because of his inability to communicate properly, he was made fun by people wherever he goes, he swore to himself that he will seek revenge one day.

 

Days and months went past, the anger and rage within him grew stronger.

 

One fateful night, summoned from the pure hatred from Otila’s mind, an ancient Grinch Gowa appeared. Gowa saw the darkness in Otila and decided to help him and gave him the Dark robe of chaos. The Dark robe of chaos will transform to the owner’s most hated item and give him power of darkness, the stronger the hatred, the more powerful the robe will become.

 

Otila wore the Dark Robe of chaos and as Christmas is the most hated day of his life, it instantly transformed into a Santa’s outfit, giving Otila a tremendous amount of power.

 

With his new found power, Otila wrecked havoc  across the land, breaking apart families and destroying homes. He began his iron-fist rule on the land and on every Christmas, he will begin his rampage all over again. For years to come, Christmas became a nightmare for all, that is until the masked hero appeared.

 

Little is known about the masked hero, except that he was raised by the ancient mountain dragon, hailed the “Dark Wing”, due to the dark shadows it cast from its gigantic wings when flying across the land.

 

The masked hero travelled the lands and rallied warriors  to stand up against Otila.

 

On Christmas Eve, he launched an attack into Otila’s Castle, the Masked hero and the warriors made short work of Otila’s henchmen, and quickly arrived into Otila’s Chamber.

 

A great battle erupted between them, the fight went on for hours and finally in the end, Otila is defeated.  But before Otila can be destroyed, he cast a curse onto himself, breaking his soul into a million pieces. He screamed “ I will return to seek revenge every Christmas, One will fall but more will rise! Mark my words.. I will be back!!! ….” With that, Otila vanished, and the masked hero and the warriors claimed victory.

 

Knowing that Otila will return, they later form a brotherhood which is now known as Dark Wing, to protect the land from all evil, and prevent Otila from ever destroying Christmas again.

 

It was later revealed that the masked hero was a small boy who had his family and home destroyed by Otila many years ago, and his name was UDareUTake.

#8227 Garage Interview #11 With Dingelberry

Posted by King of Thieves on 06 September 2015 - 01:56 AM

King of Thieves:

Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to another episode of Garage Interviews Live! I'm your host, King of Thieves, here today with a special guest, and a long time hero we all know. Everyone please give a warm round of applause for the prolific Dingleberry!

 

(Loud Applause) 

10686612_902174433188220_127790821013802

 

Welcome to the show Dingleberry!

 

Dingleberry:

Thanks for having me.

 

King of Thieves:

Thank you for stopping by. I know your schedule is usually very full, so we appreciate your being able to take time out of your busy schedule to join us.

 

Can you tell us what servers you currently fight crime on?

 

Dingleberry:

I actually play on all 3 US servers! Started on US 2 to fight crime like 2 years ago

 

King of Thieves:

2 years? Wow! That's a long time! I imagine you've met a lot of people along the way.

 

Can you tell us about some of the friendships you've developed over those 2 years?

 

Dingleberry:

Yes, that is what I like about this game... you meet people from all over the world! Some of them are friends on social media websites. too! lol

 

King of Thieves:

Yes, I know what you mean. When you have around 30 members on just your team alone, it's hard not to get to know some of them. Believe me, I've tried.  :D

 

Can you tell us about some of the ones you've gotten to know that you particularly admire?

 

Dingleberry:

Hmmmm, I have gotten to know a few on my team on US3, and it's just, like, you know them forever, talk about everything, care about them like its your own family! We have so many different characters on there, it is just fun.

 

King of Thieves:

I know what you mean. With 30 spots on a team, personalities are varied beyond belief,...... except on that Multiple Man's team....... Talk about clone city!

 

So, what do you like to do when you're not fighting crime? Any hobbies? Favorite places to go? Perhaps a special lady friend? Maybe some kids?

 

Dingleberry:

Well besides work, I do spend a lot of time with my daughter and my little boy (terrible 2s... fun).  (lol) We do like to hang out by the pool in the summer, and the beach as well.

 

King of Thieves:

Ah yes. The terrible 2's. I feel your pain. My dad used to tell me insanity is hereditary. You catch it from your kids.

 

Dingleberry:

I think that's where I got all my grey hair from! haha

 

King of Thieves:

LOL. Yes, I started naming mine. They are all named after my son.

 

We need to take a short commercial break for our sponsors, but stay tuned. We'll be right back, with more from the illustrious Dingelberry!

(Applause)

King of Thieves:

Welcome back, everyone. We're here with the leader of Silver Knights, Dingelberry! Give it up, everyone!
(Loud applause) 

 

Dingelberry, as veteran players, we often take newer players under our wings. Do you have any special advice for newer players? Anything that could serve to make them better heroes, or in some cases, maybe even villains?  ;)

 

Dingleberry:

Hero or Villain, just make sure to do all your training every day. Yes, it sounds boring, but it is very important and also use your coin wisely and buy skill points!

 

King of Thieves:

Yes, that's good advice. Growth is definitely the key to victory.

 

Speaking of new players, can you tell us any fun or humorous stories from when you 1st started as a hero? Any good anecdotes that stand out in your mind?

 

Dingleberry:

Well, I only know that when I started, I had no idea what I was doing! I don't know what questions I asked but I'm pretty sure some of them were pretty stupid! Lol! Good thing I had Veteran players who were very patient, and they sure helped me a lot! So, to me there is nothing like a stupid question anymore. My team mates can ask whatever they want and if I don't have the answer I am sure someone on the team does! Sometimes I do get mail from players on other teams too, and I am more than happy to help them!

 

King of Thieves:

No mail bombs or anthrax I hope.  :P I know how those can be. I get them all the time!  :D

 

Can you tell us more about your teams? I see you recently got promoted to leader on one of them.

 

Dingleberry:

On US1 I play for team Wolfgang (Hello, Jeffrey) and I am advisor there! On US2, I play for the mighty Silver Knights, and yes, they took me in and made me their leader after seeing what success we have had on US3!

 

11923193_902173289855001_772494269615475

 

King of Thieves:

You can't argue with success! My family's still arguing with me though. Mostly over when I'm going to be successful.....  :S

 

Speaking of successes, can you tell us about your greatest achievement in HZ?

 

Dingleberry:

Well, the biggest success so far is that we currently hold 3rd in the team rankings on US3. I couldn't have done it without those awesome team mates. Personally, I set myself different goals each week, like this week I am planning to go for top 10 in honor on each server! I do set myself different goals every week like reaching 100k in honor and, and, and......

 

the next one would be reaching 100 Million in coins, but I might be not patient enough for that! hah!

 

King of Thieves:

I know what you mean. Money burns a hole in my pockets too. Brings new meaning to pants on fire.

That actually answers my next question about any future goals. So we can throw that note card away. Thanks for that. You're making my job harder. You can forget about that all you can eat buffet I offered to take you too after the show.

 

Let's see here...... What do you like most about crime fighting in Humphreydale?

 

Dingleberry:

That would be wearing a tight spandex suit.....Ooops. Did I say that out loud??? lol. No. It is most likely the people I play with, the fun chat we have, and also I do like to eat donuts. Lots of them! lol

 

King of Thieves:

Yes. Mmmmm.....Donuts..... Sorry. Was having a Homer moment.

 

Are there any team mates or other players you especially admire? If so, why is that?

 

Dingleberry:

Yes! I admire our Australian Super Hero Viv. She is just a lovely person to talk to. Grub is one of them as well. He's a super funny dude who likes Britney Spears. KateTheKilla, RockingJane, Matt4 for the knucklehead he is .....Too many to name. Everyone is just amazing in a different way.

 

11889661_902173579854972_624786986270899

 

King of Thieves:

As you know, there's a fairly new aspect to heroism in Humphreydale called League. Tell us, is there anything in particular you like about this new experience?

 

Dingleberry:

Well, I do like league, but i think it has room to improve! After you reach champion status there is actually not a lot to do anymore! So, I hope there will be a weekly tournament for league or something like that in the future, to mix things up a little bit

 

King of Thieves:

I feel your pain. You stated that you are in Champion League already. Do you have any tips or tricks, for our viewers who haven't reached that level yet, on how to climb that ladder?

 

Dingleberry:

Well, if you are lower level, it can be tough to get up to champions! So, my advice is that, if you come across a team mate, ask him or her, nicely, if they could give you a win! I do that with my team mates as well. If you get me in league, hit me up and I am happy to help! It just takes time. So be patient if you are a new player! Rewards can be pretty decent too! So don't get to frustrated.

 

King of Thieves:

Yes. That seems to be a regular strategy of most. Have those with extra points to spare, let you catch them with their pants down..... literally.... Kinda creepy actually.

 

"Can you help me out with some league points?"

"Sure!"

"Can you take your clothes off first?"

"Uh..... I don't really like you like that......"

 

Dingleberry:

Ha ha! That's exactly how it works! Could you please undress for me?? Well... buy me at least a drink first . Geez!

Lol.

 

King of Thieves:

:D As one of the more well known and successful heroes around, can you tell our viewers who might wish to emulate you, what is the secret to your success?

 

Dingleberry:

Fun. Have fun. That is the #1 thing!  Also, take your time to build your little guy or girl! Sure, there will be a point where you get bored. So set yourself new goals every week! I do that lately and I have more fun than I had before! It keeps the game more interesting!

 

King of Thieves:

Speaking of goals, many heroes long to be in a top ten team. How does it feel being the leader of a top team? Is it an easy task?

 

Dingleberry:

It can be frustrating at times, but it is a fun task to run a team with such awesome, dedicated players! I am actually honored to call myself leader of 2 great teams on those servers!

 

King of Thieves:

I can't imagine. I have a hard enough time just keeping one group of hoodlums in line. You know who you are..... 

 

If you don't mind, can you name up to three players next to the following descriptions? Best players, opponents you respect the most, and favorite forum members.

 

Dingleberry:

Excrucio is probably one of the strongest I have come across, in my time as a Hero. Kristat is a great hero on all 3 servers.

 

Respect the most.....Hmmmm..............

 

That's a good one.

 

Ok....... Respect the most......  I'd have to say TunaDark.

 

Forums..........  That would be Priscilla. She is funny.

 

King of Thieves:

Well, we're just about out of time. We have just enough for one final question. Can you describe HZ in just 3 words?

 

Dingleberry:

Absolutely awesome fun!

 

King of Thieves:

I absolutely agree with you. That's awesome. Well, this was a really fun interview. Please come back and visit us sometime.

 

Dingleberry:

Again, thank you for having me. Time to put my spandex back on and save the world!

 

King of Thieves:

Thanks again for joining us. I'll let you get back to fighting villains and bad guys. Besides, I'm sure I've stalled you long enough for my team to pull off that bank heist and make their get away, by now. Up, up and away! And there he goes, folks! Everyone give a round of applause to our guest, Dingleberry!

 

(Loud Applause)

 

Join us next month for another edition of Garage Interviews Live. Same bat time. Same bat channel! You all have a good night. Until next time, this is King of Thieves, signing off.

#7751 Garage Interview #10 with Windwalker

Posted by King of Thieves on 01 August 2015 - 08:19 AM

KoT:

Welcome to the show, everyone. This is Garage Interviews Live, and I'm your host, King of Thieves. Our guest today is someone everyone has heard of and many of you have been asking to appear on the show. Everyone please give a huge, welcoming round of applause for everyone's hero, the infamous WINDWALKER!   (y) 

 

 

11800238_890699031002427_526935489464285

 

(Loud applause)

 

Welcome to the show, Windwalker. You seem to be pretty popular with our viewing audience, so thank you for stopping by. How are you doing today, and can you tell our audience what servers you play on?

 

Windwalker:

Nowadays I'm mainly on Us3, but I began playing HZ on US2 Feb. 2014. My character there is basically retired now, so that I can concentrate more on leading my team in US3.

 

I'm great by the way....

 

KoT:

Glad to hear. 

 

Can you tell us how you started your career as a hero in our great town of Humphreydale?

 

Windwalker:

HZ just came up as a recommended game on my fb on my feed and I was looking for something new to play so I checked it out and have been playing since.

 

KoT:

Nice.

 

Do you have any interesting stories from your first days as a crime fighter, back when you were still a rookie?

 

Windwalker:

Nothing really interesting, I just fell in love with the game right away, worked hard on my character and was fortunate enough to have a top 10 team notice the hard work I was putting in fairly quickly. I had only been on one other team before being invited to this team, which is something I don't think many other "noobs" can say. Once on the team, I was taken under one of the advisers wings and learned a great deal, so I was very fortunate and it's one of the reasons I'm as good as I am today.

 

KoT:

Impressive to be snatched up by a top team so quickly. I can certainly see how such good fortune could take you so far.

 

That said, can you tell us what, in your opinion, is your greatest achievement thus far as a crime fighter?

 

Windwalker:

Oh my! I don't think I could name just one. I have done so many things that I would never have thought possible when I 1st started. I never could have even dreamed of being a leader of my own team, yet now, here I am just a year and a half later doing exactly that. Being the highest level overall in US3, being #1 in experience and honor tournies many different times, and the list goes on. I must say though that if I had to pick one I guess it would be becoming leader, because it was just given to me unexpectedly when the previous leader decided to retire, and at 1st I didn't know if I would flop. Now, with the help of a great team of advisers and a lot of hardworking team members, I have lots of confidence and no fear in leading what I consider the best team in US3!

 

11817209_890698091002521_515197107408079

 

KoT:

Well said. I couldn't agree more.

 

Are there any heroes you admire, who's example perhaps helped shape the hero you are today?

 

Windwalker:

Some of the Heroes I admire would be KKJN, PiturcaJr., Xandernighthawk, LeapingLizard, ErmaEmpath, and yourself (FumaHanzo) from US2. I also admire Texasred, Priscilla, Polsol, Shockwave, and a few others from US3 for all their hard work and commitment. Not only that, but most of these heroes have no problem going above and beyond and are willing to give advice or a helping hand to others whenever needed.

 

KoT:

Wow! Thank you very much. I'll take that as a compliment of the highest order coming from you. Hold on a second. Give me a moment to compose myself. I think I'm blushing a little.

 

Windwalker:

You deserve it! Not easy taking a new team and making it number one in an established server in what? 6 months or so?

 

I'll be looking for that check in my mailbox in the coming weeks.  ;)

 

KoT:

Well, you might be looking for a long time. But enough about me. I already had my interview. I think our audience really want to hear about you.

 

So, can you tell us a bit about yourself? What does our hero, Windwalker, like to do when he isn't running about saving the day? Any hobbies? Maybe a love interest? I'm sure all the ladies want to know if their hero is available.

 

Windwalker:

I enjoy reading, playing cards, and watching movies. I have a 15 year old daughter who also keeps me busy. I was single up until recently and actually found the girl of my dreams right here in HZ. So, sorry ladies, unfortunately you'll have to find yourself another hero.

 

KoT:

Wow! Hero and heroine romance! I'm sure hearts are breaking all across the country right now, especially after hearing about what a loving father you are. Sorry ladies. But if it's any consolation, I do know a villain who's free.  

 

Do you have any tips for rookie heroes; any advice that can help them be the best crime fighters they can be?

 

Windwalker:

My advice is to work hard, do all your training and as much energy as you can everyday. Try to find yourself a good team and STICK WITH IT! Don't be a team hopper. Also, try to find someone willing to help you and guide you. Having someone to help you can make a big difference. I know it did for me. Don't waste coins on clothes and items so much, but use them on buying stat points instead. In the beginning any items you buy are useless within a day, whereas the stat points are there permanently.

 

KoT:

That really is good advice, especially in this fashion conscious world today. We have a whole show called "Super Fashions" geared only to that. Whoever the producer of that show is should really be ashamed of himself. 

 

I've noticed all the veteran players keep a sidekick around. Batman has Robin. Captain America has Bucky. Superman has..... Wait..... Who wrote my note cards?  Nevermind about Superman. Who's your favorite sidekick and what's your favorite skill they use? 

11174983_890697861002544_582715813577777

Windwalker: 

Ahh! Here we go again with the favorites. Once again, I don't think I can't pick just one. It also doesn't help that I have 1 SK for duels and missions, but then I have another just for team battles. My top 3 favorite SK's are Slimer, The Minion, and The Wolf. (The newest one.) As far as favorite moves, I am partial to Cheating Death on my duel/mission SK. I think that most people would agree that it's a game changer at times. As far as my fight SK for when I'm fighting other teams, Cockered Up and 2 are better than 1 are pretty much a tie for me. If I absolutely HAD to pick between 1 or the other it would be Cockered Up. Having the trophy minus points reduced by 15% is HUGE when your team has 5 trophies.

 

 

 

KoT:

We have to take a short commercial break and then we'll be right back with our guest, the infamous Windwalker, everyone!

 

(Applause)

KoT:

Welcome back, everyone. This is Garage Interviews Live. I'm your host, King of Thieves, here with our special guest, the one, the only, Windwalker!

 

(Applause)

 

KoT:

As you know, League battles have fairly recently been added to the "things to do list" about town. I was wondering, what do you like most about this new aspect of crime fighting?

 

Windwalker:

I love the basic skills boost of course, but I also enjoy all the coins I get from each individual fight.

 

KoT:

More coin is always a good thing. I know I like a pocket full of cash.

 

Do you have any advice for our viewers on how to climb the ladder, so to speak, when it comes to League battles?

 

Windwalker:

I am currently in 1st and don't really see any major benefit other than bragging rights for it, so when I see a team member who is lower and needs help rising in the league I will usually strip down and give them league points so they can enjoy the benefits of being in the champion league also.

 

10462823_890696237669373_837358038371453

 

KoT:

Ah! Ever the selfless hero, always willing to help those in need! What a guy! 

 

Can you name up to 3 players for each of the following categories?

 

a ) Based solely on their ability, which heroes do you think are the best.

 

b ) Which opponents do you respect the most.

 

c ) Who are your favorite forum members, if you're following the forums. Because you ARE following the forums, right?

 

Windwalker:

A.) Operation Redwings, Gar, Shockwave

 

B.) PolSol, Danny13, Priscilla

 

C.) King of Thieves (I swear I'm not just trying to suck up!), Priscilla, and Leaping Lizard

 

KoT:

HA! HA!  (lol)  I'll have that bribe money for you after the show.

 

Everyone knows you're one of the best heroes in HZ. Would you care to share with us the secret of your success?

 

Windwalker:

Not much of a secret. It's lots of hard work, doing training and energy everyday, but it's also having a great team that also works hard and does what is asked of them. Without that we wouldn't hold the trophies that I use to help get me where I am.

 

KoT:

Speaking of teams, your team is one of the top teams around. Can you tell us a little about what it's like leading such a great group of heroes?

 

Windwalker:

Absolutely AWESOME!! I couldn't ask for a better team of advisers and heroes!! Like I said earlier, when I 1st took over this team, I was just kind of thrown into it and had no clue what I was doing, but with the help of my advisers and some veteran players, I have learned a lot and couldn't imagine leading any other team. We are now like a well-oiled machine. All I need to do is simply ask and this team knows what it needs to do. They are all awesome and I couldn't ask for a better group of heroes!

 

11817156_890698691002461_751799037374861

 

KoT:

Always good to have a good group of people behind you.

 

Can you sum up Hero Zero in 3 words for our audience?

 

Windwalker:

Again with the limitations....lol!

 

KoT:

Sorry. The producers tell me our sponsors afford us only so much time per show. Otherwise, it would start cutting into my paycheck. Hold on a second..... The producers just informed me I'm not getting paid. Wait. Wha? That can't be right!  And they call me the villain?   :S 

 

Anyway, back to the question. 

 

Windwalker:

If I must keep it to 3 words, I guess it would be, "Lots of Fun!!!"

 

KoT:

That's definitely better than, "Who's paying me?"   :huh: 

 

Lastly, Hero Zero is known for making lasting friendships. Can you tell us about some of the ones you've made here and what they mean to you?

 

Windwalker:

I've made friends not only with members of my team, but also members of other teams. It's actually what keeps this game fun and exciting for me, because I will transfer leadership and go visiting those teams. Danny13 from Fuzzy Gummies is one of the teams that not only I, but Operationredwings, and KirktheJerk like to stop in and visit now and then. We are welcomed there with open arms and always have a good time. Speaking of Kirk and Operation, they are 2 of the people on my team that I have established great relationships with, and I am grateful to HZ for that. There are also others that I would consider calling friends, but the list would be kind of long and my fingers would cramp.

 

KoT:

I can certainly understand that. Not to mention, I imagine fighting bad guys would be kind of tough with cramped hands.

 

Again, thanks so much for stopping in and sharing a bit of yourself with us Windwalker. It was truly a pleasure.

 

Windwalker:

Pleasure was all mine! I can check another box off on my bucket list!  :)

 

KoT:

I'm glad we could help you out with that. There's donuts in the back if you're hungry. I think they're strawberry frosting. I know these shows can get long sometimes. Also, I'll meet you in the parking lot once I'm through wrapping things up with the producers. That way I can give you that bribe money we discussed before the show for making me look good. So don't take off before I get out there.

 

Windwalker:

Great! I love the strawberry ones.

 

I gotta admit for a villain you seem to be pretty honorable in paying your debts.

 

KoT:

You haven't seen how small your check is yet.   ;) 

 

Everyone, give it up for Windwalker!

(Loud applause)

 

Well, that's all the time we have for today's show, folks. Be sure to return next month when we interview another great hero from HZ! Same Bat Time. Same Bat Channel!

 

This is King of Thieves signing off!

#2122 christmas texts competition

Posted by LOGGEDin on 19 December 2013 - 06:17 PM

Hero name: LOGGEDin

Server: US1

 

 

"Meh, just another month without any holiday lying ahead of us", I thought to myself as I ripped off the November sheet of my calendar.

But suddenly a picture flahed before my eyes - a fir tree with strange ornaments on it. Shiny, coloured glass balls, bent sticks with red and white lines, and thin stripes of metallic foil, accompanied by stars that looked like being made of straw, and wooden figurines with bird wings playing on strange flutes. There also were burning candles on every twig, giving the tree a homely glow.

Over all it looked very festive, but I had no idea where this image came from, because I was sure I had never seen anything like that before. So I didn't really pay much attention to it and went on with preparing Yoyodyne's annual financial statements over the next few weeks.

But then, on December 19th, I found some strange expenses. "Candy canes". "Spices for hot wine". "Gingerbread". "Speculoos". I didn't know what to make out of that, so I tried to find background info on who bought these, when, and for which department. It seemed as if everything lead to one well hidden section on the Yoyodyne servers, and it was password protected.

 - You are not logged in -   I was told when I tried opening it.

"Don't be silly, system, of course I am! I'm the one and only LOGGEDin there is!", I screamed out in anger, waving around my ID in front of the webcam.

Suddenly, the folders opened. I couldn't believe what I found: Yoyodyne had erased a whole festive season called Christmas out of everyone's memory! I can't explain how they did it, but obviously they wanted to keep the merriment to a small circle of selected important persons.

I couldn't let that go on!

Luckily, everything anyone could need for preparing a christmassy home was right at hand - recipes, crafting instructions, pictures, stories, even music! I simply packed all the data from the hidden folders into one big self executing file and put it in every Yoyodyne employee's account, so they would find it right in the morning when starting their computer.

And this is how I saved christmas(.exe) for everyone.

#9540 Swarm aka Donut Hogs

Posted by Mommy on 04 January 2016 - 05:52 AM

Hello HZ Gang, :) 

 

Let me start with a bit about my personal thoughts on HZ:

 

Although I am incredibly active and enjoy playing aggressively, I see this fighting strategy game as exactly that... a strategic fighting game lol. That means I do not get upset when people attack me (its a fighting game) and I quite literally congratulate those who out-wit me (its a strategy game). I am a cheerful player :) lol I have been known to send apology letters to the people I farm, and I have even helped people who are not on my team, simply because they were "close" and needed a boost (shhh dont tell Swarm haha ). However, mostly, I enjoy the fun that I have with my teammates. 

 

I am an active Swarm member, but I also have many chatty friends in various other teams. I have been told that we have been dubbed, "donut hogs" because of our top 10 honor placements over the last few months. I must admit that I laughed and I will not deny that there was a small zing of pride racing through me at the thought of being noticed.

 

However, I do want to apologize if any players are personally offended by this. Let me explain a bit...

 

As many other teams know, it is no easy matter to get players into the top 10 ranks AND stay there throughout the week. This is very much a group effort. The strategy of losing/gaining honor is no secret. Helping out a teammate by giving them honor is also not a new strategy lol. What we are doing is neither cheating nor selfish. On the contrary, what we are doing is actually a lot of work and a whole lot of teamwork.

 

Some people see us as being selfish, but I see it as simply playing the game. Hero Zero offers a weekly contest. So each week we work really hard to help each other out. Many of our players give up their own chances of winning to help out a teammate. That is definitely not selfish. Many of our team members communicate all week long, working out the math, and coming up with new ways of helping our teammates to gain. From our point of view, we are simply playing the game by the rules that were created. The only reason we end up with so many players in the tournaments is because we work hard for it as a team. We are not trying to take away your donuts. We are trying to help our friends. To be fair, doesn't it make more sense to help out your teammate than it does to help out non teammates? lol Seriously, think about it for a minute. lol Its not personal. Its just fun.

 

This post is not meant to sound angry or boastful! On the contrary, I am trying to point out that we have no secret strategy. We have no secret stash of unlimited donuts. We dont have evil plans to dominate the server. lol We do NOT think we are better than anyone. We dont want to take donuts away from anyone. We simply have a team that communicates and works together and we have more fun competing in the weekly honor tournament than we do in the team rankings. I even congratulate other teams for their accomplishments (many of you can attest to this). 

 

And one more thing that helps... we really do like each other. We strive to be a team of friends. I suppose that could be our secret weapon! :)

 

Feel free to comment on this. I am not trying to stir up trouble :)  I really am just trying to share my point of view :)

 

"Mommy"

#7009 Garage Interview # 9 With Fuma Hanzo

Posted by Jagan on 04 July 2015 - 12:47 PM


 
Today we meet with a self-professed villain.  Most of our heroes try to do good but Fuma’s motivations may not be so altruistic.
 
Hi how are you, today Fuma? Can you start by giving us your user name and the servers you play on?
 
fuma%20parrot_zpsd8keerks.png
 
Good day, Jagan! I'm doing well, all things considered. Sorry I was late to this interview. I had to escape some kidnappers first. It was terrible. They had me in handcuffs in the back of their car with funny red and blue lights on the top. I'm ok now though. You wouldn't happen to have a lock pick, would you? No? Dang it. To answer your question, most know me as Fuma Hanzo, but I have a nearly unlimited supply of aliases. I have a couple stunt doubles on US1 and US3, but they're mainly there so no one steals my identity. You can never have enough precautions these days, when it comes to identity theft. Mostly though, I make my home in US2.
 
Well, we are delighted you made it to the interview this morning!
 
Thank you. Me too. They said they were going to throw me in a cell and throw away the key.
 
Lucky for us that did not happen! Would you like to talk a bit about yourself? Your life when you are not working as a superhero slash villain?
 
Sure! I always like to talk about myself. I'm narcissistic like that. Well, when I'm not out committing crimes, I like reading books and writing. Mostly my studies revolve around world religious beliefs and cultures, but I also enjoy science and psychology. When I'm not doing that, I play a lot of poker and strategy games.
I also own a moving company, but it's really just a front to launder my illegally acquired funds.
 
Uh oh! So tell us how did you start playing Hero Zero?
 
Well, I was originally in another world that was destroyed by Evil Aliens. I was sailing through the black void of space when I heard a beacon from some of the other refugees from my old planet. Originally, I tried to ignore it, but then more and more beacons kept coming in over the computer's systems and eventually, after a couple months of trying to ignore them, I realized they wouldn't stop until I finally answered the call. So I headed to this new planet that my computers listed as US2. After checking it out for a bit, I realized my fellow refugees were right and this was a suitable planet for us to make our new home. So voila! Here I've been ever since.
 
Do you have any stories to tell of your first days Humphreydale?
 
Well, I was just looking around one day and suddenly this guy in bad clown makeup started making trouble for all the citizens. Ordinarily, I wouldn't have bothered, but I noticed he was holding a big bag of coins. So I socked him in the jaw. He just stood there laughing at me, so I kept hitting him. That's when I noticed I wasn't the only one. Everyone in the neighborhood seemed to be hitting him. There was this one guy who was hitting him more than everyone else, but he just wasn't going down. Several times he shoved me to the ground, but I kept getting back up. After the last time, I hit him with a trash can lid and he finally went down for the count. It was crazy, but his belt fell off and landed right in my hands along with the bag full of coins. It was Ironic, actually. That was the 1st time I had ever fought a villain on this world. Usually I am the villain. Since then, I've discovered villains are a regular nuisance in these parts.
 
fumahanzo_zpszmg8pria.png
 
Do you have particular goals you would like to achieve in the game?
 
Well, currently I lead Villains Inc. and what we've accomplished already has been pretty amazing. But as far as future goals are concerned, we'd like to take down Yoyodyne Corp. and replace them with Villains Inc. as the dominant criminal empire in Humphreydale. After that, we'll make our move to take over the world. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
 
In your opinion, what is your greatest achievement in HZ so far?
 
Aside from catching the Moderating Bandit in the forums and acquiring her stockpile of toilet paper? I'd have to say showing players that they don't have to join a top team in order to be in one. My team, Villains Inc, started a good 9 months or more after the server had started. Most of the top teams were well established already and had a virtual lock on the top spots. Like all new, fledgling teams, we started from the bottom. (Now the whole team's here.) It may seem like a daunting task to compete with the big boys when you first start out, but now we're the 2nd strongest team on our server and the 1st in honor. I hope we can stand as an example to other new players and teams that all it takes is a dedicated and loyal group of players working together to make the impossible possible.
 
edf83466-a8ed-4b7b-8f26-3f40a08a417b_zps
 
Certainly a worthy goal.  And along those lines, are there any tips you would give a beginner?
 
Don't rub your eyes while eating hot wings? Don't put the shampoo in the same vicinity as your wife's Nair? Oh wait........... You mean to become stronger, don't you? My bad. I think the best thing someone can do is find every way possible to gather coins. Coin is king. And forget about index. A lot of folks seem to think that the stronger your toon is per level, the better they are doing. So I see heroes not levelling and only doing training in order to make their index higher. All this does is limit your growth. I'm not saying level as fast as you can. Coin is still king. But here, power is all that matters. It doesn't matter if your index is 1 million if that guy who started after you and and has an index of 100 is so much higher level than you that you're losing to him anyway. There's a lot to be gained in levelling. Aside from the free sp gained in the process, gear for higher levels can make a huge difference. I remember when I used the Hammer of Amnesia, my stats were minimal. Many lower levels were able to take me down easy. But all I had to do was have my missiles equipped for missions and lower level players who attacked me while I did missions would fall to one hit, my missiles were that powerful compared to them. There's a lot of misconceptions in this game that a lot of folks fall victim to. Index is one of the biggest.
 
 
EDIT* A lot of folks seem to think that the stronger their toon is per level, the better they are doing.
 
6ae369c4-e167-41e8-809f-33bf63a76f7b_zps
 
Are there any players that you particularly admire or opponents that you respect?
 
There are two women on my team, ErmaEmpath and MankoNakadashi that I respect highly. These two women do so much to help the team succeed and rarely take any credit or or recognition. I like to call Erma our team mom and Manko our Pepper Potts. Those two do so much to help keep things running smoothly and organized. But several of our teammates are truly worthy players. Nater, Strykz and IMG are all solid players who make up the backbone of our team. Outside of our team, I really like Chinaal and Photographer. They're both great fun. I recommend either of their teams to aspiring heroes with a rough edge.
 
Being one of the top players on the server and certainly, arguably the most strategic, what would you say is the secret to your success?
 
Other than my debonair charm and undeniable good looks? I'm modest too, by the way. The secret to my success is my team. I get a lot of credit, but the truth is, I'm just 1 of 30 people.  If anything, I'm just the head cheerleader. The key is getting a team to work together and enjoy being there. They have to root for each other's successes as if those successes were their own. They have to all have a vested interest in each other's success. There's nothing like watching the whole team come together to help just one of them achieve a victory in the honor tourney or reach a heroic deed. And when they see this happen, and know that same backing is there for each and every one of them, they will all pull together to make it happen for one another. Very recently, I made first place 3 out of 4 weeks in a row in the honor tourney. Without my team and my allies, there's no way I could have accomplished such a feat.
 
And now for the question I always ask at the end of the interview- what is your favourite word? No swearing!
 
My favorite word? Hmm. That's a tough one. There's so many. Pirate, Booty, Rogue, Villain, Ninja, Toilet Paper........... But I guess if I could only pick one, then it would have to be Freedom.  :)
 
That concludes our interview and I thank you for taking time away from your busy schedule of villainy to be here.
 
Any time. I'm always happy to help, especially if it means helping myself to your coin purse.  Well, since we're done here, I guess I'll be going. If you see two men in matching blue uniforms asking questions about me, I was NEVER here. You don't know me and have NEVER seen me before. Thanks!

#2120 christmas texts competition

Posted by FroggyFresh on 19 December 2013 - 01:07 AM

Hero name: FroggyFresh

Server: US2

 

On a Chilly christmas Eve, a bunch of villains, Were up to no good. Theses villains were running around robbing convenient stores and gas stations, as well as stealing presents and lighting fires to Christmas trees. many citizens were terrified of these, sinister Villains. Children were scared to play outside. As FroggyFresh Was walking the streets of Humpreydale, He knew that these disastrous events were taking place, Because he had just helped Mr. And Mrs. Mackeral, Another trampoline incident. He saw them pushing over trash cans and busting windows and tearing down Christmas decor. This was the last straw, FroggyFresh was angered, you don't like him when he's angry; He turns into FrogMan. Frogman was ready to show these clowns what the real christmas spirit was about. He got his hindlegs ready and Sprang into action kicking one of the hooligans in the face. one down 4 to go. Froggy was outnumbered, and theres wasn't another hero in sight. the others were off helping santa clause with something. WACK WACK WACK WACK..froggy had been spanked with an epic riding crop.. Aargh,,,, froggy falls to the floor in pain. It was the bully he kicked in the face. "did ya think it would be that easy taking down a champ like me?" While on the ground froggy looked at the bully and said, "You're not a champ, Champs don't goaraound ruining christmas for innocent Civillians" the villians started to laugh at froggy and mock him. That was it. He shot out his long stick tongue, wrapped it around the skinniest bully he saw and knocked him into the rest of the bullies. one of them stood up in pain he took out a geranade and threw it towards froggy, But this grenade was no ordinary grenade. ti had flies inside of it. FLIES. Frogmans only weakness. he had to stop and eat some. Then the bully got ontop of him and started hitting him. Bad idea. Froggy jumped up and landed backwards so that the bully would be squashed. the other 3 were out. it finally came downn to froggy and one of the last bullies. this one had a BlowDryer. he started using it against forggy and He was getting weak from the heat. There was only one thing left to do, froggy didnt want to resort to this, but he injected some boosts, a skill booster, Now froggy isn't the type of person to encourage the use of steroids, but he had to, to save chritsmas. After he had injected the steroids he fealt so much better. he straight punched the buly in the face. Then he started to cry. and froggy said, come with me. im taking you to jail. the bully gave in and got on forggy's back when froggy was goign away with the villain, he noticed all the neighborhood kids came outside and started playing, some residents were redecorating, and some were greatful.

#5140 Garage Interview #6- OperationRedwings

Posted by AngelicaSynn on 04 April 2015 - 04:42 AM

Cub Reporter AngelicaSynn, here with this months Garage Interview
 
This month, we're speaking with OperationRedwings.  She's a top 10 finisher in a recent Weekly Tournament in the Experience category.
                                               qrVOSDz.png
 
• Hi, how are you? Can you give us your username and the servers where you are playing?
 
Good Afternoon, My Username is Operationredwings, and I am currently playing on the US3 server
 
• Do you want to talk a little bit about yourself, about the life when you are not working as a hero? 
 
When I am not playing the game I am reading, writing and talking with friends. I graduated college with a B.S., A.S. and a medical assistant cert. 
 
• When did you start to play Hero Zero?
 
I started playing Hero Zero in the middle of September 2014. I began on US2, but everyone was way ahead of me in levels that once US3 opened up I started a clean slate, and have been playing ever since
 
• How did you start playing Hero Zero? Through friends? Publicity?
 
I had a great friend that I met through a different game, they soon told me about Hero Zero, and at first I was not sure it was a game for me, but I soon became addicted, as a lot of us do. 
 
• Do you still remember your first days as a “noob” in Hero Zero?
 
Yes, I remember my first few days, it was incredible the time it took to handle all of the energy and training, and then to come to a server where people knew one another from different servers, you felt a little lost, but you make friends in the game, and form bonds.  Though I do remember as a “noob” I made lots of mistakes and I got chewed out by one I did once. 
 
• What do you like the most in the game?
 
I enjoy the tourney a lot, it gives you something to do when you are not focused on your energy or training, I enjoy the chats in my team, they are epic to say the least.  I have made a lot of bonds with people in this game. The competition gives you a thrill, and you will not get bored easily.
 
• Do you have particular goals to achieve in the game?
 
My main goal at this point is to get to Level 300, which is close.  Also hitting 100k in honor would be nice also.  i would also say a goal of mine is to always do my best in the game.
 
• In your opinion, what was your greatest achievement in HZ so far?
 
My greatest achievement in the game so far. (lol) that is a tough one.  I would have to say that would be everything up to this point. I mean, I never expected to be in a top team, let alone its leader. I was astounded that someone would mentor me in the game, and show me with patience how to play, thus giving me the momentum needed to continue.
 
• Hero Zero creates friendships. Have you created any kind of friendship with another player? Who and how?
 
Of course I made bonds with people in the game, how could you not. Windwalker is amongst the first I bonded with, he was there for me when I needed advice..(which was a lot). But there are a lot of others that I have come to enjoy chatting with.
 
(The Valorous Vagrants Team)
Texasred, kirkthejerk, ledge64, Howl, Ari and windwalker all have been there for a chat and you can count on them to leave you smiling.
 
 
• Which are your tips for beginners?
 
-Don’t throw donuts at a villain, he is selfish and will just eat them for himself.
-Take your time and do not rush
-Do not listen to rumors before you know the facts
-Try your best and don’t let anyone tell you that you can't
 
• Name up to three players next to the following descriptions:
 
Best players (exclusively based on their ability as players, not their personality etc.): 
 
Texasred, Windwalker
 
Players you respect the most:
Windwalker, texasred, grub 
 
Favorite forum members (if you are following the forum):
AngelicaSynn, grub, littleone
 
(blushing slightly, with a grin)
 
• How does it feel to be a leader of one of the best teams in the entire server? Is it an easy task?
 
Being leader of a top team is rough sometimes, as you have to make difficult decisions, but its worth it to see that your team stands behind you and approves those decisions.  Letting people go for inactivity is hard, as you have bonded with them, but them you bring someone new into the team and they blow your mind.
 
I feel that a leader is only as strong as his/her team, and even though they are the leader and set the parameters, it’s the members in the team that come together to make the team one worth supporting and helping, without the members then the leader would be nothing
 
I enjoy being a leader in a top team, as I also enjoy all my members
 
• What is the most strange, funny or in your opinion the best name you have named a pet (and why?!) ?
 
The funniest thing I think I named my SK would be Alfalfa after the Little Rascals, he is a cat Sidekick... I also named a owl (hOOters) and a robot (waddles) for the fun of it
 
• Have you ever won a weekly tournament? In what category? Was it worth the effort?
 
I have won in the tournament several times in honor, in the beginning I did it just to see how strong I was, but now I do it because it is fun to see how much honor I can gain. 
 
I have also did the xp one but top 5 I believe...
 
Cbz9oRx.png
 
• You've played against a villain? What was your best position to qualify?
 
Yes I have played against the villain on many occasions, it gets frustrating though sitting there for 3 hours and then the villain flees... lol
 
I have been first a few times doing the villain, but it is hardly necessary to be first, and a lot of people throw donuts now to get 1st. 
 
If I may, when I first began this server, I was wanting to compete so much that I won against a villain by throwing donuts, I think that would have been the most (duh) moment because I got so many emails asking me if I was crazy..lol
 
• What's your favorite sidekick ?
 
My favorite Sidekick would have to be Watson the cat (named Shadow)
 
• What is your favorite sidekick's capacity/skill ?
 
My favorite Sidekick’s skills are headbutt, cockered-up and two are better then 1. And he has all the attributes.
 
• What is the first thing are you doing when you connect on the game ? Why ?
 
When I first log on I check to see if I have any mail, and then head to begin my energy/training. I do that first because I know once I enter the team chat I will be sidetracked with all the fun. (lol) we can get into some awesome fun in there and the energy lay forgotten and you wonder how it got so late and you still have 3 refreshes to do in energy.
 
 
Thank you for sharing your insights into the game, OperationRedwings...
This is Cub Reporter, AngelicaSynn... Signing off, for now.
 
                                                                 ***BREAKING NEWS***

#4569 Garage Interview #4 - Kristat

Posted by AngelicaSynn on 07 February 2015 - 09:18 AM

Hello and welcome!
 
AngelicaSynn here. As one of the forums moderators, I have been asked to contribute to the Garage Interview series.
 
I chose to interview Kristat. She is leader of a currently TOP10 team, the Drunken Degenerates.

Kristat, How are you today? I want to thank you for agreeing to participate.
 
I'm doing fine. Thanks for asking.
 
 
So, to get right to business, What is your user name and on what servers do you currently play?
 
I currently play on US1, US2, and US3, although there was a brief stint on UK1 and FR5. My username is Kristat across all three servers.
 
 
Do you want to tell us a little about your life when not paying the game?
 
There's not much to tell. I'm a college student studying biology. My parents are amazing people who let me mooch off of them, so  I'm not working right now. 
 
 
And how long have you played HeroZero?
 
I began playing on US1 in September of 2012, and I started on the other two on the days they came out. That's over two years of HZ.
 
 
How did you start playing Hero Zero? Through friends? Publicity?
 
I actually saw my brother playing the game on Kongregate one day. I think it was advertised as one of the hot new games or something. Anyway, I liked the silly outfits and the missions, so I made my own account. 
 
b002ab64db64423b88b714c72bd8112c.png
Do you still remember your days as a noob player in HeroZero?
 
Oh definitely... I was a hopeless noob when I began playing on US1. I regularly skipped training and usually only did a few missions a day. It took ages for me to improve.  I'm surprised my team put up with me.
 
 
What do you like the most in the game?
 
The fourth energy refill. When I've reached that, I know that sleep is only an hour away.  :lol:
 
 
Do you have particular goals to achieve in the game?
 
Honestly, I try not to think too far ahead because most things in the game take so long to accomplish. My main goal right now is probably to reach 10k stats in each category. Or maybe get to level 400. 
 
 
In your opinion, what is your greatest achievement in Hero Zero so far?
 
My greatest achievement is definitely keeping my team together this long. The top ten on US2 has gone through so many changes since the server opened, and I'm proud to say that our team has stuck together despite all the craziness.
 
Thanks for everything, guys. You're the best.

So... Hero Zero creates friendships. Have you created any kind of friendship with other players? Who and how?
 
Well obviously, teams are usually where friendships form. After spending so much time chatting with people and plotting revenge on your "enemies", you're bound to become friends.
 
 
Who's your favorite superhero? Why? (e.g. Batman, Super-Man)
 
Hugh Jackman. I mean...Wolverine. Need I say more?
 
 
Any tips for new players?
 
First, find a team that you get along with. Being alone is no fun at all.  Never skip training. Do as many missions as possible. Duel often. These are just basic things. There's so much more to being a good hero, so don't be afraid to ask more experienced players about their strategies. Many of them are friendly and eager to share.
 
 
Would you name up to three players that you feel answer to the following descriptions:
 
Best players (exclusively based on their ability as players, not their personality etc.)
 
PiturcaJrKkjn, and GipsyGunner are the best.
 
Opponents you respect the most:
 
Piturca, because he's gotten to the point where he's practically untouchable.  Kkjn is also a good opponent but an even better friend. Seriously, the guy is super cool.  I'm also very impressed by xDogmeatx, who's managed to become one of the top levels on the server despite joining rather late compared to the rest of us.
 
Favourite forum members? (if you are following the forum)
 
To be honest, I don't  follow the forums too closely, but from what I've seen, it seems like lucyliu is one of the most helpful members (outside of the mod staff, of course).
 
 
How does it feel to be a leader of one of the best teams in the entire server? Is it an easy task?
 
It's amazing. Their dedication astounds me. I mean, these people play at work, during class, and at all hours of the night. They come in when they're exhausted, sick, or drunk. They even play while their families or significant others watch them in disapproval.  I'm thankful to everyone who's stuck with us for this long, and I'm so proud of everything they've accomplished.  As for the difficulty of running the team, I rely so heavily on my advisors that you could say they're the ones in charge.
 
 
Have you ever won a weekly tournament? In what category? Was it worth the effort?
 
I've participated in both the experience and honor categories and gotten rank one in both, although not on every server. It does takes a lot of time, but the free donuts are worth it.  :lol:
 
 
In your long career, I'm sure you have played against a villain? What is your best qualifying position?
 
Yes, definitely...  I've gotten rank one and last hit a few times, although that may never happen again on US2. Thanks, new players. You guys keep doing what you're doing.
 
 
On a lighter note, What's your favorite sidekick and what is your favorite sidekick's capacity/skill ?
 
Out of the ones that I actually own, I like the goat the most, but I would love to get my hands on an owl. Cheating Death, hands down. It's a real game changer for those close duels and team fights.
 
 
And finally, What is the first thing  you do when you connect on the game? Why?
 
I usually train first because it doesn't take  much brain power, meaning I can focus on my messages and team chat. If nothing requires immediate attention, I'll do my initial five duels.
 
 
Thank you for your time today, Kristat. You've been quite helpful and entertaining.
 
If you need anything more from me, please let me know. I'm looking forward to seeing the interview in the forums.
 
 
 
For Team US, I'm your roving reporter, AngelicaSynn.

#10121 Garage Interview #13 With Ouch

Posted by TheDarkLight on 07 February 2016 - 03:57 AM

 Today we are interviewing Ouch, a player who has been on for awhile on the US3 server. 

nmhkqw.png
 
• Hi, how are you? Can you give us your username and the servers where you are playing? 
 
I am doing great, thanks for asking.  I am Ouch and I play on US3.  
 
• When did you start to play Hero Zero?  
 
About a year ago-  I found this game after being bitterly disappointed in the discontinuation of SHC and was looking for my Super Hero fix!!!  
 
• Do you still remember the first days as a “noob” in Hero Zero?  
 
Yes -  I started leveling as fast as I could and looking for a top 20 team to join.  Super Neighbors offered me a spot and I learned a great deal about the game from The Infamous Riddle and Super MAB.  We took that team up to #4 at one point from #14 where we started at when I joined them. There was a team- always something happening, always someone online to chat with.  I have always maintained that good chat=good team and I stand by that.  Not everyone utilizes the chat, but for those who do, it makes them feel like they are a part of something.
 
• What do you like the most in the game? 
 
I like helping people out, getting to know new people, and going to weaker teams and helping them get stronger.  I have made my way to various teams since I started.  And along the way, I have always had success doing just that.
 
• In your opinion, what was your greatest achievement in HZ so far? 
 
I have done a lot of things I am proud of but I am not big on personal achievements, more so on what I have helped my teams achieve.  Right now, I am very proud of my current team, Riff Raff.  We have put together a great group there who are remaining daily actives and getting stronger all the time.  Of all the FUN I have had, this is the most fun I would have to say, and in the end, isn't that what playing a game is all about?
 
• Which are your tips for beginners? 
 
Stay active, do your training, study the game- get to know the teams  that  do not get the publicity and for the love of all that is sacred, stay away from the forums!   (see what I did there?)
 
• Describe HZ in 3 words.
 
My other job? 
No... wait. I can do better
AH!   I got it...  RIFF RAFF's HOUSE!!!! (Who's house?  Riff Raff's House!)
 
• You are one of the top players of Hero Zero. What is the secret of your success?  
 
I am?  Are you sure?
Ok, well the secret of my success is activity. Plain and simple. Woody Allen once said that 80% of success is just showing up. That describes my "success" to a tee.  There are better heroes out there, better stats with better gear.  But you will be hard pressed to find a player online more and more willing to do the work their team needs to have done in order to succeed. 
 
• What is your nickname in the game? Why choose this for your hero?
 
My nick is Ouch.  I started the game thinking I would be able to change my name some time down the road.  Here I am, one year later and STILL that update hasn't found its way into the game.  Some call me Big Daddy, Big Daddy Ouch or BDO.  That started on Super Neighbors when, 15minutes before a fight, I would do a pre-game under that pseudonym, along with my partner Chet Simmons who never showed up for various reasons related to his hedonistic ways.  It kind of stuck when I would go to help someone, it was always "let Big Daddy a show you" (referring to myself in the third person).
 
• In Hero Zero, friendships are very important. Probably you have a lot of friends in the game.
Who are your close friends and how did you meet them?  
 
Met them all in various ways. Not all of them are friends but they are definitely influences.  Some by playing with them, others by trying to recruit them.  Still others by chance:
Azuretrue from LCG (my heart), SuperMAB and TheInfamousRiddle (my earliest influences), SuperSamSam and Gar (who I learned more from than anyone) from Sugar Rush,   Superblahhh, Danilo, & Jerkcircus (who put their faith and trust in me to follow me from team to team), clickmania (the angel on my shoulder), Siphon(my right hand and good friend), JerryBerry (nicest guy ever), LadyKamasutra (Team Rocket's leader  who took me in and put her team in my hands), Fuma Hanzo(another who put his faith in me on Team Rocket),  HerpDerpDerpy from Wolf Gang, NewDay who blessed me with the opportunity to start Riff Raff, Whitewolf and  the entire roster of Riff Raff who make me want to stay logged in each and every day, and the biggest, badest  player I have had the privilege of playing with, KubaStank.   
And there are many more out there, I am sorry for leaving you off the list.
 
 What is your advice to newbies?
 
Stay active.  Do your training.  Play with friends, you will never regret that decision.  Your first team doesn't have to be your only team. And once in a while, spring for donuts, you deserve them!
 
                                                                                    -By TheDarkLight

#9932 Restore competitive balance, end the monopoly of power

Posted by Excrucio on 29 January 2016 - 04:42 AM

Here we go again...

 

There have already been many alternatives suggested to remedy this situation in the past (trophies can only be held for so long before going back into circulation, increasing the number of total available trophies, etc).

 

"Further, to bring a competitive balance back to the game, all skill points derived from training trophies should be removed."

 

LOL, you do realize that if you take such a drastic measure then you have to do the same for ALL trophies as well.  Teams that stockpiled energy and even the often loathed courage trophies will have still generated much more coin over time (weeks, months, years) than teams without the benefits of such trophies thus further creating an imbalance between player lvls and stats if you were to only remove training benefits. 

 

At one point (several years ago in fact) they said they would be limiting trophies to 3 training units instead of 5... they never followed through on that so one can assume there will most likely never be drastic changes any time soon...

#907 SuperVillain/Lottery/Rescue Missions/Hero Traits

Posted by UDareUTake on 16 February 2013 - 04:17 PM

POSSIBLE New Contents

 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-

 

Super Villain


 

Version A
(Individual-Based)

 

A super villain will be a harder version of the current Villain.


It will appear once every 2 weeks.

 

It will work just like a normal villain, but will be a 8 hour villain, with better prizes (Better stats for equipment *or can give 2 items instead of 1 item OR 1 item and 1 set missiles* as compared to normal villains, higher XP/coins gain per hit) There could also be special bonuses/items given by this Super Villain.

 

Version B
(Team-Based)

 

A super villain will be a harder version of the current Villain. It will appear once every 2 weeks.


It will work just like a normal villain, but will be a 8-12 hour villain. Instead of the normal individual-based effort, this would be a team-based effort. Example- Player 1,2,3,4,5 from Team Alpha each attack the

 

Super Villain once, And Player 6,7,8 from Team Bravo each attack the super villain once.


Team Alpha’s last player that hit the villain will see Team Alpha (Rank 1) 5 hits, and Team Bravo’s last player that hit the villain will see Team Bravo (Rank 2) 3 hits.

One main difference is that this Villain is purely Time-Based. The villain Do not have any health. At the end of the Time frame,Team with highest Hits win. Special Rewards will only be given to the top 3 teams,

 

Other teams that participated will only be given XP/Gold.


The reward to this Team-based super villain will be even higher compared to Version A.

*Possible reward could include special team bonus that would

 

last for a certain period of time. (Gives bonus to Facilities/Popularity/Motivation (Gives bonus even if team is currently fully expanded)  

 

A special mission booster -10% for mission time (Last 5
days), that can stack with the existing mission booster)

 

**Instant Finish of attacks with donuts can be disabled in this villain to allow fairness for all players OR enabled to use as a donut sink pool =]

 

 

 

Reward Examples

Rank 2

Prizes


 

8478423585_a52473059c_z.jpg

*Default Prize Pool will begin at 1,500,000 coins

 

More than one winner

 

If there are more than one winning share, equal sharing
kicks in. It means the prize amount will be shared equally among the
winners/winning shares. Equal sharing only apply to Prize Group 1, 2

 

*Donuts will not be shared, Players will get the Donut
amount stated*

 

Example:

 

Group 1 Prize: 1,125,000 Coins

 

No of winners/winning shares: 3

 

Share amount (each): 375,000 coins +200 Donuts

 

No winner

 

If there is no winner in Group 1,2 the prize amount will
snowball (i.e. added to the prize pool of the next draw). Prizes snowballed
will be capped at 3,000,000.

 

 

???/*-+ Probability +-*\???
 

8478423581_f347443a8a.jpg

 

The purpose of this lottery is to allow free-to-play players
to have a chance of winning donuts and extra coins. The prize amount/donut
amount etc can be adjusted for balancing of the game but the main idea of this
lottery is to add new free-to-play content into the game that will not be
affected by whether are you a donut user.

 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=

 

 

+++++ Rescue Missions +++++

 

 

A new category of missions (Appear in Random Zones once

every 1 hour), will be called Rescue Missions.

 

 

Better Coin/Xp rewards. Similar concept as fight missions, slightly harder than the current hard fights
when successfully completed, will give global refresh of missions.

 

 

This will allow players to see better rewards and new dose of content in the game.

 

 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-

with coins to get a fresh new trait. Duration cannot be extended.

 

 

 

Types of Traits

#6343 Deleting chat room posts by Team Leader

Posted by grub on 27 May 2015 - 11:57 PM

  It has been my experience posts in team chat can get risque, and that is fine. Then there comes a time that something is posted that is down right rude and offensive. Have kicked several members for this, but the post is still there to be viewed. 

  I as team leader should be able to delete that post. That option is held here in Forum by the Moderators. It should be extended to Team leaders as well.

 

  IE:

        A player was asking members for e-mail addresses and even home phone numbers. A player did give it. Now it sat in posts for all to see. I had no way of deleting this. I reported the player asking, and short investigation latter he was deleted(hopefully banned).

 

  I have other examples but I think you get the point.

 

This is a tool that is sorely needed.

 

Thanks

grub :)))

#3449 'all around the world'

Posted by A T R on 09 July 2014 - 01:45 PM

One tiny little suggestion,

When we reach the current final area ( ie at the moment Australia) it would be nice and time saving if we could click next and return to the first area ( humphredale).



each area already has the directional arrows 'next' buttons, even last area, it seems simple enough to implement.

#10480 new members sent to us3 server, what about us2 and us1

Posted by ErmaEmpath on 17 March 2016 - 04:21 AM

when someone is interested in hero zero and they do an internet search for hero zero they are automatically put into us3 server.  most  do not know there are three servers to choose from .  becasue of this there are 2314 teams on us3 server and 259 teams on us2 server. ( i just looked)   I do not have a character on us1 server to look there. 

 

this means the new heroes on us2 sever have become so few and far between that  many teams are not able to keep 30 members on  their team.    many teams have died with  just a few inactive members left.  

 

Is it possible for  the hero zero site to start  a rotation us3 , us2 and us1 servers so  each server can have an equal opportunity to get new members .   if this can not be done on a daily basis perhaps it can be done on a monthly rotation.
