If you want to earn the medium and hard badges, your time is running out. As this MMORPG uses time as a resource, you will need to start working towards the hard badge very soon.

Official quote from rawismojo:
“I’ll talk this over with Greg and others, but I wouldn’t count on it happening. I know the whole situation sucks (both for badge-seekers but especially for people who actually play BYM), but it might not be really fair to people who spent the month+ to earn the badge originally to have people be able to come in and earn it in half the time because the game is coming down and it might cheapen the award for them. It’s definitely a valid concern, but I’m not sure that we’ll actually change the requirement.”

Good riddance. One less exploitative MMO that barely passes as an idle game.

Somebody must have said it if you are quoting it ;3

Yes, “no one, ever.”

I’d like to have a little word with Mr.ever then.

I actually didn’t mind it that much, just the fact that every night my yard would be completely demolished because I had terrible defenses. It was easy enough to repair (which was actually half of the enjoyment it seemed, since other than that there’s nothing to do), but it was the largest use of time for me.

But it’s such a quality game. This is a true loss to Kongregate :(.

Sigh… As a badge whore, that means I’m forced to play this game. Nooooooo…

Damn…I’m going to miss it. It’s such a quality game. This is a true loss to Kongregate..

A sad day for Kong guys.

You forgot Descartes.

Also, about time, and nothing of value was lost, etc.

But I can only use Descartes to prove that I exist. The rest of you could all be spambots for all I know.

Sounds legit.

I feel much much better about getting this badge about a month ago now.

 
Flag Post

I’m glad I stuck with this game as soon as it came out. The badge took me well over a month. Badge hunters are going to have to rush!

 
Flag Post

Guess which badge hunter is not getting the badge again? This guy!

Of course. But no one, ever wondered if they didn’t exist, and therefore didn’t exist to contemplate non-existence. As such devourer359 no one, ever wasn’t thinking (particularly since no one, ever would think BYM is a quality game, or a game), and therefore might not exist.

Although I suppose it’s possible no one, ever is merely invisible.

This game doesn’t reflect Kong’s values. Honestly the majority of users will not miss it.

 
Flag Post

Already got the badges, thank god. I’m probably the only one here who was actually part of the BYM community, and will actually miss it. Not the game, but the community. The game was filled with hackers, and had no support whatsoever from the developers.

Also, you need to submit a badge report to get the hard, as the badge is broken.

 
Flag Post

I know several people who used to play it, and I don’t understand what the big deal is.

 
Flag Post

This is both happy and a sad day

Happy news first:
That Zynga-styled facebook piece of trash is finally departing Kongregate

Sad news: Another broken badge incoming. Badge hunters, you’d better hurry or you’ll regret you didn’t use this opportunity to get a badge you cannot get in the future



By the way, I’d like to hear the official statement of Kongretate about the issue how it is going to handle this issue. I mean, we don’t want broken badges, right?
