Topic: Cardinal Quest 2 / Character strenghts and weakensses

Pros: Uhh.. Fireballs? I dunno. I don’t really like this one.
Cons: You start out really weak, your only useful ability (fireball) will typically take a while to recharge, since I typically want things like health instead of inteligence. The only way I can imagine the Wizard being useful is if you save up 8,000 Morale and purchase the fencer perk. Really. Fuq the Wizard.

Well, no wonder you don’r have much luck with mages when you try to use a stat build better suited for a melee class. You shouldn’t be getting into actual melee fights with with the wizard, so health isn’t that important Prioritize Int above all else, followed by magic resistance and speed. For skills, just pump the spell damage stat all the way and get inspiration, followed by one point of forcefield and willpower. I tend to use dark arts minor and crowd control, the latter of which is great for when too many enemies are getting too close. I tend NOT to get iceblast, as it’s bad in close quarters. Just avoid engaging in too much melee, and by the time you get your intellect up to 15-20, you’re getting in a high-power fireball at least every 4-5 turns.

Maybe go with Procyonpi’s idea and add a medium “reach character lvl X” badge to fit with Bluji’s suggestion?

Also, there are plenty of pop culture references for the potential spider slaying badge. Aragog Aggressor, Miss Muffet’s Revenge, Angering Anansi… if you’ve got the char limit for it you could go with Does Whatever A Spider Can’t.

Yeah, if I were to add a second medium (and the game can afford it, it’s pretty long), it would be one of the following:
-Reach character level ~16 or so
-Beat the Yetti
-Reach floor 60 (finish the winter zone).

So I just finished TEC2, and I’m gonna take a first stab at badge ideas:
Easy -Secret Treasure: Find any secret room and escape with an Artifact
Medium – Dungeon Crawlin’: Defeat the giant spider on level 25
Hard – complete the game.

The game appears to have stats for:
-Escaped with Artifact
-Kill the giant Spider
-Kill the Yeti
-Kill the Sorcerer
-Deepest Floor
-Character level
-Potions Crafted
-Items Enchanted
-Secret Rooms found.

I kinda wish there were stats for monsters killed and treasures opened, though.

Topic: Kongregate / "Highest Played Games" Metric should be based on unique players too

Because its not just about the developers and the money, but also about users who really play a game, who like certain games more than the others, and because they deserve to get the correct recommendation from the platform.

Number of unique gameplays isn’t really that strongly correlated to game quality (at least, controlling for rating). Since that metric only requires you to play it once, it’s mostly a factor of how well the Dev was able to promote the game. If anything, games that people keep coming back and playing are a sign of devotion to the game, although some games like call of Dragons artificially inflate that number.

OOH! OOH! I HAVE AN IDEA!

Pastaria should get a badge for getting all customers to Gold! In fact, that’s such a good idea, Greg should go back and add that task as a badge on EVERY Papa’s [X]aria game!!!

I know, I’m a genius :P

Topic: Kongregate / Best of 2014 Quest

So I made an earlier thread but was stupid and accidentally locked it, but I figured people might like a place to talk about it.

Based on LouWeed’s search query, it actually looks pretty good. I like most of the games in it, especially CW3, Rogue Soul 2, and Transmission, (although the last one may need to be voted in) and it doesn’t look like half of the games are TDs for once.

The big wildcard is that there are a bunch of unbadged games from this year with high ratings, but most of them probably won’t be badged.

Topic: MARDEK RPG: Chapter 3 / What DnD 3.X classes are the character's equivalents?

What I’ve basically come up with are
Mardek – Cleric
Sharla / Donovan – Edit: Flavor-wise, these characters are essentially sorcerers, since their magic is based on their natural element and more limited in variety than the other primary casters.
Sslen’ck – Barbarian
Solaar – basically a cleric, but squishier.
Elwyen – Bard
Gloria – Druid
Meracador – Kinda a Wizard
Legion – Wizard
Vehrn – Paladin
Zach – Fighter

Thoughts?

Any chance of AdVenture Capitalist getting badges? Maybe like a medium for unlocking the Oil company or X angel investors? It’s rating is up to 3.81.

This is probably why Sandbox Hero hasn’t been badged and I bet this one won’t be, either. With Kongpanions, the badges would be super easy, without them, unreasonably difficult. If the game gets badged, it’d be forcing people to get Kongpanions in order to get the badge(s). That causes all sorts of unpleasant and obvious problems.

As opposed to, say, the Kongai badges?

If greg wanted to go the scandalous route, the completion badge for FPA remix could be called “beating the pencil in your pants.”

No but the list is on the first page of this topic.

I saw that it wasn’t on the list, and was wondering why / if it was a mistake, since it has a 4.2 rating and API.

the other reason for 9 giving me trouble is they just kinda built too fast and controlling 3 different small corners was kinda difficult with the lack of energy to keep up with stuff.

You know that you can put the 3 bases together in the same corner, right? ._.

The most you can fit on one island is 2, and that’s not really great strategy anyways, because it takes up room that could be used for collectors / reactors. It’s really not that hard to build enough on 3 different islands to protect themselves until you start upgrading things. Then you can just connect the islands and attacking the center should be easy.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Having just finished CW3, I definitely think the badges should be about in line with Precarious’s ideas. Completion is probably slightly on the easier end of hard badges once you understand how all the units work and are used most effectively, but length and the fact that figuring out how to use the units well is a bit of a skill in and of itself make it a solid hard badge. I’m still of the opinion that “speedrunning” (which mostly consists of finding a half decent strategy and pausing a lot while executing it) is not very fun, although if there is going to be a speed run, it should be for specific scores for the last couple of levels, as those are decently complex, rather than overall score.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Yeah, I oppose an impossible badge for CWIII based on score simply because it’d mostly be a matter of pausing repeatedly so you can build your network without running out time on the clock.

Pursuit of Hat 2 needs retroactive reporting, then I think it’ll get a hard completion badge.

It could probably also do with an easy or medium for X levels.
