Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Edgebee will there be any new content?

It’s not “refuse” it’s just “haven’t gotten to it yet.” I expect they will implement rewards for tournaments (beyond the warrior achievements), but it will probably be next tournament or the one after that as they consider options/implementation.

Well I thought this was a good enough score, but then I saw prec has a higher one, so I’ll play a little more for 3M.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Traveling merchants, Feb 27-29

Hi, I am going traveling during the break. I am selling and buying many things (some of the same things at different prices; buyer beware). If you don't like the prices I offer, I understand. They are simply offers that you can refuse silently. You can message me in kong mail or in game mail to negotiate, and I might or might not accept. If I am coming to buy/sell something from/to you already, negotiating other prices is more likely to be successful.

For selling, I am listing the max I am willing to sell, but you can offer to buy lower amounts. For buying, I will buy all you are willing to sell of that item. I will edit this as my needs change. Feel free to add to the post with your own offers (and I don't mind if they are better than my own, as I expect some to be).

Selling:
Gladiator's Vambraces - 30, 1.75M
Beast Attires - 100 +50%
Defenders - 1000, 117.5k
Veng Ents - 2M
Dark Staves - 80 +1200% (or +900% and you sell me the dreadsticks for 480k)
Gungnir - 130%
Hell Sword - 3, 3.6M
Enchanted Labrys - 6, 390k
Belial/PlateofRenown - 5, 1.2M

That would really spice up the PvP system!

By spice up, Jethro means give it pretty much any purpose/motivation at all. :)

And h0ndam4n missed the ever-important 3.5. Add an event quest line for the new customer types.

Also, and this might just be me who wants this, walls to block out max-level 15 customers (potentially up the max level for the oldest customers from 15-16 so you still get 1 of that type). 56 customers is already too many, and if we get more… it will be really hard to find the few we actually want to see.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Warning - Servers will be down later today

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for the advanced notice, and congratulations/great job on the minimal time required for the server change. I really appreciate that you let us know ahead of time (since you were able this time), so we had time to send out customers early and didn’t use/waste a coupon.

Topic: Kongregate / [How To] Get Kongregate Arcade to work on PC

After a bit of effort, I made this (from CHARLESing's "Mobile Badge Manager" http://www.kongregate.com/games/CHARLESing/mobile-badge-manager) work:
-----------------------------------------------------
Download the previous version of BlueStacks here (Select version 0.7.18.921): http://bluestacks.software.informer.com/download/
I could not find the 7.18 version here, but I did eventually get it from here:
http://bluestacks-app-player.soft32.com/old-version/

Download the Kongregate Arcade APK file here: http://www.torrapk.com/apps/app-download.php?apkId=2843

Download the Flash Player APK file here: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/android/11.1.111.19/install_flash_player_pre_ics.apk Install Kong Arcade and Flash Player using BlueStacks (it should be defaulted to this when you double-click the file).
-----------------------------------------------------
I was then able to finally load fat slice and obtain a mobile arcade badge. I will update if I find any issues with other games.

I agree with Adam here. I’ve seen a confusing trend from people suggesting that a game get badges BECAUSE it is a sequel to a badged game(s). However, I would expect this to be a disincentive to badging a game, since often the games are so similar there’s not enough difference to warrant a rehashed version getting another badge. Now, if the game was improved and expanded greatly, sure it can warrant badges, but on the new game’s merit, not because it’s grandfathered in.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Join the customer sold items data collection project!

Just an fyi, there are 39 level 10 items, 20 level 11, 20 level 12s, and 19 level 13s. I commend your detailed tracking, as that seems to be very close to the %s one would expect with those distributions (you get 2x as many level 10 items as the others, because there are twice as many level 10 items to choose from).

Seems like you are confirming the equal chance of any item being selected from the range, contrary to the conclusion you drew from the same data.

I’d like to suggest the Vex games, all of them. Even though the first one has a 3.79 rating, the rest are above 3.8, and are great candidates for an impossible badge. Also the Fractured series. The API works on both.

The problem is the game itself is broken. Randomly the game glitches and gives a 0 second completion time for the level making it hard to give the game badges,

I don’t think it’s randomly; it’s when you restart a level right as you enter the exit (or on Vexation, right as the bomb is about to go off, thus restarting the level). So yes, there’s a glitch one could try to use in order to get 0 seconds, but badges don’t have to use time as a measure anyway.

Originally posted by Psychatog:

There’s no reason to badge MMOs, at the end of the day they are all cash grabs.


Psychatog, while I typically do not like most of the MMOs (particularly since they are often barely different from others I’ve played many times), they DO serve a purpose in that badges on MMOs does generate decent income for Kongregate. While I don’t pump money into MMOs, I recognize that for the site to exist and for them to offer contests/rewards/community they need to be profitable, and I try to remember that playing an MMO for a badge occasionally isn’t so bad (and I don’t have to do it if I don’t want to).

There are also some very quality MMOs that don’t require spending money to do well and enjoy (Tyrant, RotMG, Dream World, Swords & Potions 2, and others that I never played much myself). But some MMOs are clear cashgrabs that seem like terrible conversions of mediocre Facebook games. Not all MMOs are created equally.

Topic: Swords & Potions 2 / Leggitte has been beaten!

I must say, while there are a few things about PvP that I don’t like, the way it is currently working does allow for decent balance and dedication to play a serious factor in the outcome (as obviously Memoria tried hard in that first-shown war and Leggitte was perhaps caught off guard or just at a bad time zone). Often problems in game PvP comes down to massive staggering, where #1 always wins, #2 only loses to #1, etc. But multiple towns can take 1 point from #1 (and there’s the chance of #2 actually winning), and #2 loses wars to others, etcetera.

However, EB needs to add some purpose to being at the top of the VP standings soon, or else interest will die quickly as ePeen only sustains interest for some, few after a little time passes.

Also, there is clear benefit for non-#1 towns to play weaker early on, and then try harder at the end of the tournament; with the matching system as it is and everyone so tightly-ranked, you get much easier matches overall that way.
