Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / HP

there is more than enough to complain about … energy and hp drain so fast that you spend more time waiting for something to happen that ability to actually participating in the game reaches nil way too soon. This game is a money-drainer, but it fits Kongregate … (one of the reasons I block all adds on this site)

A game should encourage the player to ‘play’ it and not waiting hours on end in order to continue, because either energy or hp are too low to proceed. Your smuggish response fails to deal with the basic aspects of the game.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons / HP

So … how am I supposed to get them? Wait hours on end until the health bar is full again? Hope to get an increase in level at some point? Spend a ludicrous amount of gold for some hp?

Boy … what an awful, money-grabbing piece of shitty garbage.

Untrue. If a game has a rating >3.80/5, it goes on the shortlist for badging. BYM has a rating of 4.01/5 (4.13/5 at the time of badging) from 33,000 ratings, which is well within the range for badging. If the rating was under 3.80/5, it wouldn’t have got badges.


Don’t blame Kong’s administration for badging games that the community enjoys, that you don’t.

Loads of people like Coca Cola, but is it a good beverage?
Loads of people like McDonalds, but do they offer good food there?
People are idiots. Read Freud on his comments on Mass Psychology.

I do understand that Kong needs to make money. And yeah, I get that a large amount of players are fooled into thinking that sort of game is actually a game, despite the player’s inability to influence it past choosing who to attack. But I think it sucks that other games don’t get that sort of promotion just because they don’t have a Kred shop, or their timers don’t involve lots of page reloads. Unless Backyard Monsters transforms into like Final Fantasy 9 or something when you get that Map Shop upgrade, I’m not going to believe that the gameplay is any more indepth or any more ‘real’ than a typical idle game with a few upgrades.

The problem with this kind of game is the small amount of money that you pay per item. Instead of showing it directly:
completing progress: 2$
It uses some kind of pseudo-currency, which you cannot get back and refunded. When you buy something then it is gone. You pay for the experience, but you get nothing physical in return; it is like a drug … you get some kind of hallucination but that was it. You get fixed and you want to continue with the game; also take the peer pressure on Facebook into consideration.

The depth of this MMO is so horribly shallow that it is necessary to discuss it in any meaningful way. Youngsters might be attracted by the graphics and such, but once you have grown more mature and have seen some amount of games — started playing nearly twenty years ago — those money grabbers of today will hardly motivate yourself to dive into them; interactive games like WOW or COD, ET etc. are a different story.

Kong wants you to play this piece of crap and the latest badges for awful MMOs are clear indication for this. The good thing is, there are other sites, like Newgrounds for instance, which offer more in quality than Kongregate, whose level is decreasing considerably.

I do not spend money on games, which offer me nothing in return. I also do not buy MP3s… I buy CDs/tapes/vinyl, of which I own over a thousand.

I just lost 200 shinies … for no apparent reason. Something popped up and I clicked — I was hastily upgrading and building stuff… no ideas what it is, and no indication what I got.

edit:
‘Production overdrive’ it is… I did not intended to buy anything with shinies..
Shitty game.

Regarding the hard badge, yeah, it’s super long. There’s no denying that. There’s also no denying that we’re a business and we need to make money, but our goal wasn’t to make money off of speed-ups with the hard badge. If you do the math on how much it would cost to speed up production to make the hard badge earnable in a short amount of time (let’s say a week), it’s unreasonably high — revenue from speed-ups isn’t even very significant anyway, possibly because it’s just not considered viable for most people.


You are missing the point. K offers badges for games that are betas … at best. This is what makes the MMO such an endurance and so annoying. Not only are they badly crafted and offer by no means a convincing playing experience, they are, especially in terms of the game in question, simply annoying when it comes to upgrading and organizing the buildings. There is no liberty, no chance of experimenting, nothing … the main point of the game is to drain the player of their money.

Yes, the game might get interesting, but will it stay interesting once you realize that in order to improve your site properly a considerable amount of money is needed, because otherwise there will not only be the problem of space but also outrageously long updates; 4 freaking days in order to get to the second Map-level.

Why don’t you simply add a mandatory fee in order to play games on this site? I would relief the players from doing it in-game. At least then, the players are able to see the real costs of their gaming.

Even the easy badge is a test of endurance. Bit of a shit week, really.

I will not play this game. I tried it for a couple of minutes, but more was impossible. The last badges were indeed really really bad.

Audiophile badge (easy – 5 points)

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby! badge (medium – 15 points)
Earn Ruby achievement.

Starman Kenevil badge (hard – 30 points)
Earn Starman achievement and Kenevil achievement.

But which track? Are you supposed to look for music that would enable you to master the badges? The problem is that the game does not recognize all kind of MP3s and it leaves you in an awkward situation. The game has only one track and to listen to it again and again can become quite and endurance. Furthermore, other tracks — uploaded by the users — might not work because of some criteria; not enough red notes, or jumps etc.
