Topic: Realm of the Mad God / Trading in RotMG

^ is a rambling post.. I still feel the need to address it as no one has for 17 hours.

Stat potions are a very flawed currency. While not a major inconvenience, I think anyone can acknowledge that they are not very precise. What is the most expensive item in this game worth? Less than 100 def pots I am sure (I don’t claim to know exactly). A def pot is worth more than 5 spd pots. Spd pots are the lowest ‘currency that exists presently, and there are tons of items that don’t have a value in spd pots, for example. Now consider silver, where more items would have a value (many items have 0 spd making there trade difficult, even though people demonstrate a desire to buy/recieve and sell/give) and the most highly valued items would likely be worth hundreds or thousands of silver. How is that currency not more precise? And if less valuable items can be exchanged for silver, it is more available. This makes it more effective.

To think about it a different way, consider this. Do stat potions or silver more closely resemble real life currency? Silver.

Are human creations flawed? Yes. Did humans create currency that is used today? Yes. Is currency widely used in real life? Yes.

I don’t know how else to explain that currency would be more of a help than a hindrance. I hope someone can present more problems in this system, because I am having difficulty recognizing them, but they must exist. Knowledge is Power =O

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / selling items - question

I am very confused about selling in this game. I realize there is no currency or market (like fantasy online), coins are only bought with kreds, fame isn’t spent between players. Does this mean that selling is actually trading for other equipment? or is there something that people use like currency?

need to clear out my vault.

Learn to Fly 2 was a lot of fun for one afternoon, and then few minutes to get one section of the arcade mod badge.

I agree on both counts, but the ( questionable =D ) wisdom of the crowds involves different criteria for rating games than me. I haven’t beaten Villainous yet, so I won’t say anymore on it.

“fair and reliable” means “OMG DIS GAM HAZ MEMES 5 STARZ!!!” now?

3 & 4 just weren’t fun to me. I enjoyed 1 & 2 because of the core mechanics and when that was gone… well so was I =D

Topic: Kongregate / 3 months, 3 top rated games

April 2011 brought us Elephant Quest and June came with Learn to Fly 2 and Villanous!

Back in my day (about 3.5 years, not so long ago) DTD 1.5 and Dolphin Olympics 2 held the top spots. Protector and Sonny had their time on the front page also.

The burning question is this:

What games actually deserve the top 3 spots. For me, this would be a game with replay value (hard to find in flash games, sometimes) and good gameplay.

Honestly, I don’t think any of the games on the top spots right now would be in my top 3, although they are fun.

What does everyone else think?

One a different note, does anyone know when this site was released? I know it is at least 5 years old.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Fantasy Online] Gem/re-spec raeg

I was actually talking about this with some people on pirate shores, where players dream of the elusive lockpick. Your solutions 1 and 3 seem to be outstanding ways to handle this ‘problem’. But seriously: this would be a very early stage of the game to implement something like this, I think. You would not be stunted for the rest of the game, just ’til you level up (maybe more than 1 time).

Topic: Kongregate / Chain Comments

24 hour limit per comment per game (I think i said that right)

or maybe i meant comment on a game every 24 hours.

anyway, most other things could be taken to shout/whisper right? comments aren’t for arguing/spamming XD

Topic: General Gaming / ARCANE MULTIPLAYER!

lol i love how the first pages of this thread were about arguing whether it was a good game or not.

i think a multiplayer would be nice, but other games (smiley’s war FTW) would be better IMO

still a good idea, make no mistake

deadhead, that is a pretty retarded thing to say, just because you have an extremely biased view on the matter. you are not looking in fairness, but to your own advantage.

anyway, nice try but easy to beat, craxxor.

http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=4484306

XxIanxX, that was an empty win.. that is why i left this thread for one with better rules.
to prevent passive contraptions, rules should be changed to something like: The contraption opposite the side where everything falls off is the winner. This would also mean having a little “escape” contraption with the red/pink wheel is pointless, it is not forcing anything over the edge.

if a contraption can’t knock everything off the side opposite to where it is built, it should not be posted, i would deem it passive crap.

anyway, i will probably be in this thread for a bit.
