Hey PwnYeAll,

Good topic! I just added some questions I get sometimes in my mail box :)


 

Offline

The most FAQ ever I think is:

What does the blue PowerUp with three white circles do?

A: It makes more PowerUps appear. (I don't know if there is a fixed amount, like exactly three, or a time intervall...)

In this case, the will have both have the same rating

 

Example:

1: A with 30 points

2: B with 25 points

3: C with 25 points

4: D with 21 points

 

The actual place, on which it calculates points gain:

1: A

2.5: B & C

4: D

Question: Why is the green slow powerup slower than the red slow up powerup ( because when u turn with red it's almost same as normal speed, but when you turn with green, its much smaller)

The green one isn't slower, but you are right about turning faster with the green powerup. This is because it will be in your advantage and green powerups have mostly the intention to give you an advantage. Vice versa with the red powerup, because it will be a disadvantage for the people when they try to turn.

They won't tell you how much money they make, besides I think they don't profit much at all as they want to increase the premium prices.

 

If I'm wrong, correct me.

It's pretty expensive to hire servers, so the profit won't be that much.

Hi

I would like to delete or at least to turn off the closing wall powerup, which bought, but I don't like it. I think it should be allowed.

Offline

How long must a game be and how many points do you have to have so that the game counts?

I wonder cause sometimes the game does not count as a played game. Often that is in 1v1 scaled when people leave. I see the point of these "rules" but i still wonder what regulations there are.

Thanks

Offline
Champion

When the game is longer than 4 minutes, then it will usually count, also if both players leave the game( in a 1v1 scaled) and there are still spectators it will count. So if you don't want a game to be counted, make sure it ends under 4minutes or all players leave + spectators

Why do some players, I saw therealmadridcf having it, have the text: I am deleted0 behind their names, even when they are still able to login and play with this text behind their name? And yes I do now, when you delete your account you are not able to login anymore, and then this text 'I am deleted0' is showing up behind your username.

With this text after your name people can see in the ranking/forum that this account has been deleted.

I hope this is the answer to your question.

Have you tried different browsers? Try to disable antivirus/firewall and see if the problem disappears.

Joniel, I have experienced this problem with Kaspersky as antivirus software. If you too use this software, you need to disable it briefly before logging into Curve Fever. I'm currently working on what the problem is here.

If that is not the problem, can you please provide your browser, antivirus, flash player, operating system and anything else that could help us understand your problem.

Okay!

I use the Browser Iternet Explorer, I have no Anti Virus program at this time and I have the standard Adobe Flash Player. Thanks for your effort Smile

Joniel,

Can you now try and see if you can log in? We might have found the problem. If still not, do you have a software running which blocks adverts or banners? Try disabling this if so.

You can host or join premium rooms, buy more colors, spend it on custom icons, and you can even buy some powerups ! However, if you're not a businessman then you can save it up.
