Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: Developer / Suggestions are attacking the developers.

I don’t like any of those ideas. I simply want the existing game to be bug free, to recalibrate late earth and the moon, and to add new planets every few months.

What happen if a creature still adjacent to The Moon when killed? Is that creature still get Nirvana?

When you try to kill the moon, the adjacent creature will absorb the damage. If that creature dies, it will be revived due to the nirvana effect.

Yes, but is that creature still get Nirvana effect after it died once? (still adjacent to The Moon)

No, as mentioned in the card description, it only takes place once.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Which candidate would you vote for so that he/she can run for president

Y’know, about a year ago I learned that this local grocery chain called Market Basket has a policy where if an employee works for them for years, even as a cashier, they’ll be paid substantially more than the minimum wage, according to Wikipedia full-time clerks even start out at $12 dollars an hour. I get that there are some terrible employees out there, but because the company rewarded this kind of loyalty in their employees so well, they started to protest for their old CEO back when he was fired. Partially because the person to replace him wanted to cut their pay, but also because the old CEO was able to build loyalty and was actually able to get his employees to like him.

And that’s an awesome story and that’s great that a company would go out of their way to take care of their employees. You know what’s even better? They didn’t do it because the government didn’t impose an artificial minimum wage on them – they did to keep their employees because paying the higher wage more than justified the high turnover rates that a lower wage would have produced. Again, the government is largely irrelevant in this role, and this still doesn’t change the fact that raising the minimum wage does far more harm than good.

The only reason this is happening is because people feel, one way or another, that they’re not getting paid enough, and they believe, even though these corporations are fully able to give them raises (and they are!

Then don’t take the job. The McDonalds cashier may think he’s worth $15/hour, but if no entity in the marketplace actually believes that position warrants paying $15, then those employees who believe they’re underpaid are probably wrong.

I honestly think we’re going to need to have a serious discussion about whether we slow down automatization for the sake of employing more people, or saying screw it and get machines to do nearly all of our work for us, getting rid of the need for human jobs altogether.

No, people just need to develop better skills. More of a focus on apprenticeships, community colleges and tech schools will get low-skilled workers the abilities needed to get a job. There are oodles of high-skill positions available now that pay great money due to the fact there is a complete lack of workers capable of filling them.

So I did a bit of research and it seems that that hike would bring the minimum wage back up to its 1968 peak.

That’s mostly the result of 1) an 8 year economic expansion 2) sharply rising wages and 3) the largest increase in employment during an economic expansion. None of those things apply to 2015.

I remember ex DT members posted screenshots and links to your bot control panel. They were real (I checked links by myself). Do you have some real evidence of that kind? At least something? No? Then your post IS witch hunting for sure. And yes, you are accusing directly.

Create support ticket instead if you believe I violate some game rules. DEVS will handle it.

I see this as your personal butt hurt, nothing more. I can post videos of me playing manually all our battles. Could you?

I don’t care how and what you do dude. I genuinely don’t. Even if I had evidence of you botting, which I don’t, then I still wouldn’t send it in. I neither care nor have any doubt of the outcome. I doubt very much that you personally bot. I would actually be amazed. But there’s not 50 of you is there. I wouldn’t want to see you banned even if you did. I enjoy the rivalry too much to risk that :)

And no, I couldn’t post videos of my fight. I have no idea how you do that and I suspect that as I normally play on my phone, it’s not an option. Even if I could, my guildmates would testify that I can barely use a calculator, let alone learn how to video my stuff on a screen. They’ve given up trying to teach me stuff. Sorry :)

Topic: Off-topic / Cold/iced green tea

Definitely, though I’ve tried green tea in bottles and iced tea in cans. Through a tall glass or cup, I’ve tried the Lipton brand and it’s sublime.

However, my thoughts on unsweetened tea has the scent of peppermint yet the taste of water and cough syrup.

Topic: Wartune / Eudaemons

Is there ever going to be a change to this stupid attainment system for eudaemons? I’ve gotten 4 of the blighters since my original one (where I chose the knight class), and they’ve only become knights and archers. Surely the whole random-class thing should have flagged up as a stupid idea with the devs a LONG time ago!

Can we at least use them as sacrifices (or send them away, if you don’t want to seem brutal lol) and get at least a partial refund on the shards that take forever to collect? (maybe like 1 or 2 shards back)

Topic: Off-topic / In memory of Ubermorgen

Are you really this ignorant? Assume is not a synonym for claim, and claim is not a synonym for assume, they have completely different meanings.


These words clearly don’t mean the same thing. Funny how you said I’m the one who can’t accept I’m wrong.

Topic: Game Programming / Which languages does Kong accept?

For the sake of being thorough, it supports (in theory) any coding language that supports the .exe extension. As you could imagine, it encompasses many “side languages” such as Lua, Python, Pascal, Perl, et cetera. All you’ll need to do is export as .exe and convert it to .swf (if not already a supported export option), which isn’t very difficult.

And of course, a way around this (as was mentioned above) is to just Iframe your .exe on another website.
