Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges! [Suggest new badges here]

@Alsee Inferno legend has a horrible tutorial and everyone who plays that agrees. It does get fun afterwards.

Top comments were all made on the same day when the game had server issues, it was resolved in the same night.

I seriously doubt Inferno Legends got 5000 legit votes for its rating. It’s so comically broken and unstable I’m not sure I’d give the benefit of the doubt that 5000 people were able to even play the game at all.

Servers were only having issues on badge day, it got fixed the night the badges came out. No issues since then.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Inferno Legend] 80k Gold for 100 Blue Souls: Is that worth it for VIP 1+?

You get more blue souls simply from harvesting. You can also get double or even triple gold souls so it’s not worth it.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Inferno Legend] what do fire/ice/magic/etc damage do?

Check your attributes and click damage. You’ll notice the various damage types and how they calculate into your total damage. It also boosts skills associated with that element.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges! [Suggest new badges here]

I’m actually enjoying Inferno Legend but have mixed feelings about it getting badges.

The start is absolutely atrocious and it has possibly one of the worst tutorials I’ve seen of any browser based mmo. You literally can not affect the gameplay and are forced into automode for all fights for a long while(over an hour of gameplay easily). It doesn’t help that you’re showered with constant rewards that you won’t know about and are forced to do the same actions of stuff the tutorial has already shown.

The fights themselves are very slow with drawn out animations, you later unlock x2 speed and even later x3. The fact that you don’t get those immediately is a pretty big negative.

Will all that said the game does open up and I’ve enjoyed it for the strategies it does have later. It actually keeps introducing systems with many being quite fun. I’d love for the game to be more active and get new users from badges but I can see the rating plummeting and many absolutely detesting the game due to the horrible start.

Topic: Kongregate / Chat Rooms that will be Closing on Nov. 3

Goodbye Bleachers, was the owner for over a year and I loved the chat in it.

That was 6 years back, it’s sad to see that chatrooms have gotten so much less active. I remember how frantic chat used to be in several rooms with 200+ users being a norm in many.

For the new impossible I got everything except the 50k loot. Do combos increase loot or something? I’m not even near the objective.

Topic: Kongregate / Is Kongregate dying?

Kongregate has completely stagnated in the last two years and ceased any form of growth. It was confirmed by Emily that the number of good games has dropped off drastically due to mobile games dominating the market.

Flash games as a whole are dying but the website itself is still well known and will stick around just like newgrounds.

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

It’s an old game from many years ago. You control this small city of tiny creatures. You manage resources and take care of the city(and increase its happiness). There is events such as plagues or hunger strikes. I’m not really sure of more details.

Would be appreciated if anyone knows it.

Assuming someone sleeps 7 hours a day, dumps to 0 before they go to bed, and starts dumping the second they get up, that still provides about 120 stamina that should be wasted on most days.

That could at least be a flag for you to inquire further?

That would have been a good starting point back when the cap was 100 stamina. It’s very easy to use 100% of stamina.

It seems like synapticon is open to recieving reports. For giving specific cases I encourage people to report directly to him.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Hashtag] Free 0hio

If you know anyone who has been involved in gamebreaking exploits then please report it to the devs. Ohio did a lot more than some simple account sharing or botting. His actions include using a gamebreaking exploit that let him do multiple battles at once, buy multiple card packs at once and have next to unlimited warbonds.

He will not be unbanned.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [DISCUSSION] What constitutes enough evidence for Kongregate to intervene?

The moderation of games is left to the developers of said games except in extreme cases. Account sharing is against Kongregate rules mostly because of accounts being stolen and all the conflicts resulting from that. Tyrant has similiar reasons including the inherent advantage associated with account sharing.

In more extreme cases I believe the developers should take actions such as giving penalties in conquest/faction wars, temporary bans and even up to disbanding factions. That would be enough deterent without being too harsh. The developers won’t have to regulate all cases.. as long as the more extreme cases are dealt with then it never spirals out of control.

If anyone wants to report factions or players then send the developers a message. Do not name and shame here since it just spirals into personal attacks. I think this is a good discussion to have so feel free to keep posting. I will lock this topic if it continues to degenerate.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Dear Mods Thank you for your great work

Although their isn’t much discussion here, I will admit I am no where near as active as I was years ago when I first started moderating the Tyrant forums. Because of that I have started recommending some players to fill in that void, so you might have a new moderator soon!

I apologize for the lack of activity in general, although I still check the forums at least once a day to make sure they’re not falling apart. If you have any grievances feel free to PM me or flag the specific post.

sorry, but somehow i fell this is getting out of control…

This started spiraling out of control with the introduction of Refresh and Utopia Beacons. That was solved by adding Iron Maiden, which was in turn solved by Summon and Credo Master, which was solved by Blitz, Metalworks and Zarak, which was solved by Warpway Fortress and Rapiers.

It’s not just Power Creep… It’s Power Explosion. We all got used to it though =p

I agree with this. Refresh was the 1st skill that was plainly better than every other similiar skill in the past(heal,leech,supply). Utopia beacons were just the start of powerful refresh cards and then Iron maiden was introduced and dominated the meta the longest out of any card.

The power creep exploded ever since then. It’s good that older cards are getting buffs/upgrades now though.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Consortium-entirely useless?


The developers definitely had plans but the whole conquest and quest aspect was inspired by a current consortium member(ralk)… and all the communication the consortium is doing now is aimed at improving conquest. It’s a huge difference from the situation before the consortium where devs would barely post or check the forums. Now they have a direct line of communication that gives the devs info with little effort.

Many huge game exploits were also patched thanks to Inorix and the continued work of the current consortium members.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Consortium-entirely useless?

The consortium’s role is a oneway communication route to the developers. They don’t directly have any power beyond that communication.

That said before the consortium there was no quests, no conquest, no shard system(all new packs except one required WB),no live arena,no regular updates,no upgrades to cards,no increased developer communication, no timed events,there was stamina refills, limited energy/stamina,there was several game breaking exploits… among other things so I disagree with the notion that they’re “useless”.
