Topic: Serious Discussion / Pokemon Goes for a Walk

Pokemon Go is a simple collecting and management game where players interact with real-world locations. The game naturally requires that GPS/location services be activated in your phone. Players are awarded experience based on the locations they visit and the creatures they encounter.

The game has been wildly popular due partly to its novel use of the Googlemap API.

The developer, Niantic, has created two previous games based on the same geo-based concept:

Field Trip was less a game and more of a location-based open attraction map. (Not to be confused with Field Trip Advisor.)

Ingress was the publisher’s first proper game and presented a kind of “king of the mountain” gameplay motif. If you are familiar with Pokemon Go, Ingress was the same game without the spawning, capturable pokemon creatures.

I’m not a Pokemon fan myself but I recognize the value of Niantic’s engine. It certainly introduces a new category of geo games… not possible until the widespread use of smart phones and robust mapping APIs.

There are a couple of interesting aspects to the emergence and popularity of Pokemon Go and Niantic’s location-based game system. If you’re so inclined, take your pick…

• What types of apps might benefit from a location-base feature set?
• How might the use of data “buoys” be used to enhance mobile phone experiences?
• What kind of game (or non-game) experiences seem uniquely suited to this kind of technology?

Topic: Spellstone: Technical Issues and Feedback / Quadra Bundles: Devs, please change to Premium Set only!

Originally posted by moose_pigeon:

Im a bit curious… is the “quadra insect pack” a direct response to the feedback from the “quadra _____ bundles”?

The different name suggests it may just be a seperate store item, in which case i wonder if they will keep offering them for shards, and if the devs have considered changing the bundles to premium set only as well?

I believe that the slight name change is to differentiate between the two, and I have seen similar small name variations with items before. Not sure about plans to bring back bundles or change bundles/packs, only time will tell! But I have passed along feedback that people have posted about both bundles and the new pack.

I was tempted by the quad insect, but it doesn’t give you the dust you need, and it’s a lot to quad it… I guess that’s part of it, but maybe it would be nice to include a bunch of dust maybe too, it’s a lot of kreds, imo…

Good feedback, thank you!

It’s not. Don’t panic.

However for those who were stuck at 573 unlocks (or higher), then the rebalance enabled earth to be completed within 2 further days.

Depends on what you invested your free gold in and what badges you have.

However, these complaints are still silly because they are from the perspective of people who have been playing for months. If you were to start today, you’d probably find the pacing of Earth to be pretty reasonable.

Topic: Spellstone: Technical Issues and Feedback / Feedback - Dungeons

An idea for rotating dungeons. These could be a challenging PvE experiences which would have tiers. These tiers could drop various rare items. And ideally alot more rune powder. This could be single player and maybe some guild ones, we don’t always have to challenge others directly, sometimes ourselves is just as good.

Topic: Kongregate / Admin Question

I’m an admin, so I’m asking the questions here!

Why, out of all your accounts, did you create this thread from this account?

But I’ll answer:
1) September 2013
2) I’m an Assistant Community Manager. I do a variety of chat an forum things, particularly moderator training and support, handling reports, work with certain forums.
3) Despite that fact that I am severely controller-impaired, jmtb02 and I won the 2013 Kong Office Towerfall tournament. During one of the matches, John was dead, but not killed by me (yeah!) and I actually had to succeed at things in order to win. It was terrifying and thrilling.

If I had to choose my best memory, I would sit here for an hour deliberating, then delete the post, so I just grabbed one.

4) I have worked at a wide variety of jobs and done well in them. One job I found the hardest was waiting tables. I’d have an organizational system, but when it was busy, so many things could change and make everything fall apart. At my very first Work From San Francisco week, there were more than 20 of us meeting in a pub for dinner. Everyone was arriving at different times and ordering at different times, and people were switching places constantly. The waitstaff were all better at their job than I ever was, but the situation would have driven me absolutely insane when I used to wait tables.

One challenge was that if 6 people ordered bacon cheeseburgers, and the waitress came back and asked, “Who ordered the bacon cheeseburger?” it would always go to the first person to speak up. A slow to answer person might have been waiting for 20 minutes, but they still wouldn’t get the next one to come out.

So I made a chart of what everyone had ordered, with hashmarks, checked in with the waitress to see if her numbers were current, and tried to make sure that people who had been waiting longer got their food sooner, especially if they’d mentioned being hungry.

Some people from Kong who met me for the first time started asking me questions about the food, and I realized that they thought I was a waitress at the pub. When trickyrodent and I explained who I was and what I was doing, people laughed and said, "That’s very “Community” though."

Another part of the story is that Greg added a side of avocado to his order, but his order was delivered without the avocado. He looked kind of sad, so I also made sure that Greg got his side of avocado. Kongregate has been a big part of my life since 2008, and there’s still a part of me that thinks “OMG, Greg is in this chatroom!” when I see his name in chat, so I was rather starstruck at actually being in the same room with Greg, the great maker of badges, so this was really exciting.

Granted, but the prestige neutral faction can only be used with druids and titans.

I wish that the next person only corrupts my wish but doesn’t make a wish of their own.

Feerik also switched the order of the game modes. “Play” and “Challenge” have swapped places. I have to wonder if Feerik is going to add a game mode.

Still not sure if Ktt was buffed or just restyled, but I got him anyway just for the first skill.
Spiritspeaker is not that convincing, but hindering cards are hard to evaluate without trying some possibilities.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist Mobile: General / Questions & Answers

Originally posted by pobatti:

It’s definitely a software bug…

Yes, it is a bug in software. But where and what software is the question. It could be the Unity app shell AdCap is using, or the AdCap code, or one of the ad providers’ frameworks. Given this issue doesn’t seem to be affecting everyone with the same device and/or OS version, there is likely a (few) variable(s) the developers are not aware of – and there are already quite a few variables based on the reports (with details) so far. Which brings us to…

Better error messages. The “out of ads” error message can likely mean an issue contacting an ad provider’s server to, well, out of ads for that ad provider. Can’t really tell without monitor traffic on the network without more detailed error messages. If it’s a network traffic issue, well, that’s another can of worms. The failure could be a bad cable on a bad port on a bad switch somewhere between one’s network and the ad provider’s data center. It could also be Pokemon Go traffic flooding one’s local ISP node (or the node of the server, or somewhere in between). Although I think AdCap will request an ad from a randomly* selected ad server each time so if one ad provider is out of ads, another provider is just a tap away.

I don’t recall running into AdCap resetting when switching out to the App Store and back issue. The last couple of ads I had were from the ad provider “Unity Ads” and they do not switch out to the App Store. Will try it out when I can.

*: As random as it can be implemented on the device. Which have been known to have led to 18 ads for the same product, but more often than not, different ad providers and different products every couple of ads.
