anybody know why royal warfare 2 was removed?

From the game’s developer platon_skedow:

The game was removed from Kongregate :-( Kong has a policy against third party login system like, and they removed the game. The game is still available, for example, at NG: or at Y8:

Reckless Speed has a 3.8 rating and API. Pretty fun.

This might actually work — I’ll look into it more next week. Thanks for the suggestion!

No, it won’t, unless you want to lock out everyone with a halfway updated unity webplayer:

2 badges the last 4 weeks. I lost track a bit, what is Greg’s current excuse as to why there are no new badges and what prevents him from updating this thread (e.g. first post)?

“Busy with other stuff” or “Was on vacation” or “Sorry was sick”?

Topic: Kongregate / Petition: Allow name changes

Originally posted by Lloyd_Majere:

I’ve already given counter-evidence to every argument in this thread proving that it’s too complicated a demand. Until I’m proven wrong, you and others won’t accomplish anything.

Now that made me laugh. You really think you gave any evidence? All you did was throw out some numbers that you made up.
By your logic, I could just claim that a name-change takes literally 5 seconds, as the whole Kong system already uses some kind of “Name-to-ID-server”. Very much like a DNS server on the net. Then I could claim that the name-change only requires that one change in that “Name-to-ID”-database and all is done. No links broken, no referals broken, as everything uses and looks up the player ID only, which isn’t touched.
Of course I have absolutely zero insight about my theory being right or wrong, but neither have you about yours.

Still you use your made-up theory to shoot down the people saying a name-change is done fast and tell them their point of view is wrong. With same justification I could call your thesis wrong, as you have no insight on how it works either.

However, I don’t care about name-changes. I don’t need or want one and think Kong’s admins worktime is better spent on something else. But if there’s a heavy demand for it, I wouldn’t mind it of course, doesn’t bother me at all.

Personally, I find FlyingCat’s pricetag idea pretty good.

Topic: Kongregate / What happened to the mobile app?

The Kong Arcade App is only avaiable still for Android 2.2–4.3.

In Android 4.4, Google removed various APIs that mobile flash would have required to run fine.

Possibly because he works for Kongregate […]

Since when? And where is the behind his name then?

Also he uses the words “them” or “they” when talking about Kongregate (the company), not “we” – to me it doesn’t look like he works for Kong. Maybe with them, but not for them.

And now I’m done derailing this thead, sorry :P

Can you show me where a Kong employee said this (or link to it or quote it)? Because I did miss that.

It was in an email conversation, but here’s a direct quote: “Maybe we could add a ‘never show this again’ checkbox after a user closes the box without rating three times?” Later, he said he’d get a story “scheduled” for it.

To answer your question, the change was (allegedly) released today. They haven’t updated the changelog yet, but they assured me that the change is live.

Why they tell you all that but not the community is beyond me.

Kong’s communication with us is once again complete crap.

I thought Kong admins finally understood something after the last shitstrom they took for the lack of infos from them, but nope, after a short period of their communication being better, it’s back to what it was before (with the exception of Greg’s great badge thread): not existant.

Originally posted by CHARLESing:

Why not the rate the game correctly and never see the pop up again? It takes no cognitive effort haha :)

Because the popup appears so early, that I haven’t seen much more than the intro from the game, which doesn’t warrant more than 1 star.

In case I play on or come back to the game later on, I might adjust my rating to whatever the game deserves, but in the moment of the popup, I usually rate 1/5 too.

Incredibly annoying “feature” imho.

Keeping in mind how it took Kong admins a year to fix the private messages bug, I’m not expecting changes to the popup before 2015. If it makes “the priority cut” at all…

Originally posted by racefan12:

I guess this is as good of a place as any to ask if anyone else has had problems with API reporting in Dragon Storm and BloodRealm for Android.

Both BloodRealm badges did not work for me, had to report both.

First Dragon Storm badge worked for me, then a few days later the game broke and refused to load beyond 13/20 at the begninning, so I rated it 1/5 and deinstalled it. So don’t know about the second badge.

Okay, StrikeForce Kitty has badges now.

Bad decision. Shouldn’t have been badged before the extreme lag problems, which make the game almost unplayable, are fixed.

Reading through the comments, the game’s rating will crash down, as everyone has the lag problem and people, including me, rate it 1/5.

Okay, Epic Boss Fighter badges are hopefully going up today. I am considering an IMPOSSIBLE (yes, IMPOSSIBLE) badge for killing 10 bosses in insane survival mode. Please attempt to do this to verify that it’s not too easy. My best run so far is 3.

It seems to be random which bosses you get. If you get a good/lucky run and only get the easier bosses, it wouldn’t be a very challenging impossible badge.

I didn’t need that many tries till I got a good run and got to wave 10.

Originally posted by Maritos:

How did you score 11 btw?

By killing 11 bosses. It’s not called “endless mode” for nothing ^^

I also ran into a glitch with Gateway 2 where the required color code from the mirror/sprinkler rainbow was also different from the one I was being shown in-game.

Played the game yesterday, happened to me too. In the door panel I had to put in blue in the far left, but the prism showed pink there.

Topic: Kongregate / Let's Discuss About: Signatures

I don’t care reading most of your posts anymore, for example this one:

Originally posted by Holy2334:

Honestly the free kred system worked until they removed videos for 1 kred. Other then that most of them do not work. I do have a bit coin though :) but I lost it :(

- One day I shall hope to find a CROW named Flappy and a Honeybadger in the world of Kongregate, and I shall name this Honeybadger, Tim.

The obnoxious signature is as long as your post. It uses italics and it’s underlined. I find it annoying that if I wanted to read your posts, I’d read the same dumb signature everytime again, especially as you don’t put them in all posts, so I’d always have check if it’s just the pointless signature or something that belongs to the actual post.

I’m very glad Kongforums don’t have a signature feature. Posts should entirely stay on topic, if I wanted to publish a general statement, I could do it on my profile instead.

Also, this:

-There is a small (on the evidence in this thread ) number of people who would like to see them added, and they seem to be outnumbered by those of us who are enraged by the very idea of them
-The only useful information in a thread is on-topic information. So the static information in someone’s sig is unlikely to be useful 99% of the time.
-I actually use other forums that support signatures, and I’ve noticed that what I do is I actually “blank” the signature when I’m reading a thread, in much the same way I blank advertisements (which is what signatures are really: your own personal advertisement). So sure, forums with signatures run just fine, but I haven’t come across a single one that couldn’t be improved by removing the signatures.
-So signatures would only benefit the community in the sense that you’d lose all those grumpy argumentative arseholes like me who hate signatures with a passion that borders on psychotic. Hmmm. Maybe you’re right.

Hello Kongregaters :)

We’ve noticed that a number of people use the Game Bug link (found under that game window) or PMs to DisruptorBeam to let us know about issues.

While we strive to answer them all, this is really not the best way to contact us.

Topic: Technical Support / Sword Stuck in Party

Are you talking about an issue in the game Game of Thrones: Ascent?

If so, try asking in this forum instead. This Tech Support forum is only for issues directly related to Kongregate, not ingame issues.

Here is a link on how to contact the game’s support.

You could also use the “game bug” link below the game, but the above options are the better ones.

Hope you’ll get your issue fixed!
