Wow, you have ~10 level 20s? Are you looking for a town?

Also, h0nda, perhaps a Shakespearean refresher is in need, since you are misusing “wherefore” in your title. :/ (Unless, that is, you are actually pondering why they have the moniker they go by.)

FYI this appears to have been resolved.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Tourney Ending Time

JohnJack, h0nda is talking about the tournament (24 klashes over 25 days), and he’s right, the last klashes of a tournament are always the same time (with the tiny exception of places with daylight savings time, but that can be ignored).

The reason this might be important is that the final placement of the tournament is heavily determined by the last 5-8 klashes, because unless you are in the top 3 spots, you bounce up and down in and out of the top 10 routinely as you face weak towns, win, and then subsequently face one of the top 3 towns and get knocked back down.

I’d also like the points and kreds from that ActiveUnique account posted to this one. Yeah, that was me; this is just my new more-loved alt. What, you didn’t know that?

don’t know if this is a glitch or not but when i moved to another town i lost all my trades

While you can no longer see them in “Pending,” they still remain in the town you posted them, and on WT (if they are WT-sales), and if they do not sell after the 72 hours they will return to your inventory as they always do.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

re: level 12 vs. 8 for Kill the Plumber:
It’s the first world, you get an achievement for it in game, so it makes more sense as a “set” to do 12.
Also, I suggest that if this game gets badges, that a medium just be collect 144 stars. The whole game took less than an hour, and there wasn’t a single level I didn’t get 3 stars on the first time I completed it. I’m not sure why Thok was having such trouble. I do agree with him that the achievements in game is pointless (to grind another 50 killed plumbers will just be playing level 1 50 more times). A couple levels are a little tricky, so it’s not totally mindless, but generally I don’t think the game is that great. An okay proof-of-concept, but much more could be done with it.

Kill the Plumber
If it does get badges, I suggest this:
Easy: Complete level 12 “Back down the drain” or “No way Jose” (see the dev reply to wattro’s comment)
Medium: Collect 144 stars “144 up yours” or “Mustachioed massacre”

I feel like generally they have done just that, or at least given server downtime notices in game, when it is a planned outage. This is likely an unplanned break in service.
Edit: Thanks Kid, sorry I hadn’t logged in for an hour and didn’t know. All other comments seem valid to me then.

Congratulations AU; sorry I suck so bad at Dino Run and Jumper and couldn’t offer any competition.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / New City/World Trade Interface

This is really terrific, thank you. If only there were a better method for the 100 mails you get for selling 1500 items which require clicking through to collect money. :p

Also, it seems like visiting trade causes your workers to not “unpause” when you start a day, forcing a refresh. Was the workers starting paused necessary? I find that an unfortunate change.

So terrible… I assumed that 100k would be no problem, but I just can’t stay alive, even with only 1 tiny board I blow it.

I am really good at using bombs the moment I get hit and lose multiplier.

I doubt I can improve this at home. :(

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Trade market UI changes

Being able to see what is on CT only and what is on WT is great (yellow = CT only).
Excellent how quick buying/selling 99 things is. I know some would prefer to do 1k, but oh well, it still is way faster.
Selling for 0% or +10%, interesting. So little stuff is on trade at even +20% these days I don’t know what that will do to the market.

Not a fan of the day starting paused, but I’ll get over it. Might be useful for when the game crashes and needs a refresh (particularly during the day).

It takes Dino Run a while (a minute or two) to update the API (and a few switches from page 1 to page 2 of the all-time top scores), but it will do it.

I’m using HyperCam2 with the Xvid Codec, and as I said, at my work computer it didn’t lag the game at all (though I had everything else closed).

After playing on my work computer (getting the 6:30 you see in the scores) I tried at home to see how bad it was. With recording at home, it is 50% slower (what takes 22 seconds at work took 33 seconds at home) and even not recording it was 20% slower. Fortunately it doesn’t seem to be slower while recording while at work for me, but I’ll be interested in seeing your webcam video. :p

It seems like you have the 2B ceiling bug, as evinced by this screenshot (taken after I bought a Vengeful Entity and my $ went from 2.15B to -2.14B). I refreshed, and everything was fine, but it happened 3 more times until I got under the magic limit (postulation: 2,147,483,647). Now everything works normally.

Obviously not a big deal, as few are so miserly as myself to get to that level of cash on hand, but something to look into.
