Topic: Kongregate / So now future badges of the day aren't specified, only the game they are in

You can tell from the picture which one it’ll be. At least, I assume so, it wouldn’t make sense to put a picture but not the correct picture.

Topic: Kongregate / How kong could revive Kongai

The main problem was the time it took, at least for me. And with the 3 card battles against randoms it seemed rather luck based. 5 cards would mean you got to work out your opponent properly so there was more skill involved, but that took even longer.

Topic: Kongregate / You should be able to replay badge of the days if you missed a day ONLY to earn a shiny kongpanion

I’d suggest having all seven badges as a sort of quest with the kongpanion as reward. That way new people won’t miss out, but they do have to put in a little extra effort.

Topic: Kongregate / New badge discussion

For Dojo of Death, JohnnyV123 in the comments pointed out there’s a maximum number of baddies on screen (and I think it’s dependent on time rather than score or number of kills?), so just go around killing archers as they appear, and taking out one (or two if you’re daring) of the sword guys at a time when there are no archers so as to avoid being swarmed.

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Introducing Kongpanions!

For those who miss out on a Kongpanion (I don’t know if they’ll be cycled through again and, if so, how long that would take), perhaps make the seven badges a quest with the (shiny) Kongpanion as a reward.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: Even more translations

It seems that whenever I open up my browser, I am sent back to French Kong, though I can click to change to English at the bottom. The top monthly games is now displays in English when the English (USA) flag is selected so that seems to be fixed. Do I have messed up cookies or something?

Perhaps forfeit the question if the game loses focus or something?

An ounce is a 16th of a pound, so if a pound is force but not mass, then the same for ounces :S

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: Even more translations

I went to the top monthly games and it’s in French, despite the ‘English’ option being selected. I tried flipping to French, then back to English, but it all stayed in French.

The game tags and categories were in French too – ‘Rapide’, ‘Armee’, ‘Multijouer’, ‘Didacticiels’ etc. Has anyone else got this? ‘Top weekly’ and ‘Top rated’ are fine, as are the other categories I tried.

I had an AI battle for my first PVP fight, so I suppose it can’t get too bad even when nobody plays it anymore?

Topic: Kongregate / My Kong

It’s shorter than ‘community’, so saves bandwidth. Next is ‘achievements’ being replaced by ‘badges’.

Topic: Kongregate / Rate Popup

I’d like to be able to disable it. Often I’ve loaded a game up and am chatting or taking my time (either way, not ready to rate yet) then it pops up asking me to rate it. I know how to rate games, there’s even a clearly visible five stars in the top of the game frame in case I forget.

Perhaps a prompt (optional) if you attempt to navigate away from the game without rating it?

Topic: Kongregate / Desktop Tower Defense 1.5 should be REMOVED from Kongregate

It’s not doing anyone any harm by being there, and it’s still crossable with a little extra effort.

Is every single forum member a Kongregate apologist?

If you look at the comments, people are upset about this. Screenshots are designed for MISSING achievements – there are no instructions on going to another site. If you are REQUIRED to go to another site to earn Kongregate points, something is very wrong.

The game might work again in future (I’m doubtful, but it is possible), and there are workarounds in the meantime. There’s no reason to burn bridges.

I imagine very few developers would want their games badged if it meant they had to keep their game compliant with updates beyond their control (Kong, Flash etc) or risk being barred from the site.

Can you not dismiss it from your recommended games list? I know the recommended badges is broken (and that’s a problem which Kong can fix without scaring off devs), but I don’t think there are any problems with dismissing things from your recommended games.

Topic: Outernauts / Post your 4 sigils results, or how u got an epic.

No more epics as of yet, but some elites I got since my last post: Mantix+Mantix = Mecha Scykling, Nezzy+Cyrow = Robo Eyesaur, Verdant + Starchy = Gorbrawl, and Nezzy+Seagirr = Puffeero and Robo Eyesaur (separate attempts, of course :p).

Topic: Outernauts / Post your 4 sigils results, or how u got an epic.

Without sigils, I managed a Rockee (7hr epic) from Nezzy and Mantix, and a Verdant (5 hr Elite) from Nezzy and Starchy. I suggest sticking any old thing with Nezzy and seeing what happens, gives loads of other rares :P

Topic: Kongregate / Top-Rated/played games for every single Month?

They used to send out who won the monthly and weekly (I think) prizes, so that information could be lying around somewhere. Or you could keep checking here.

Anyone else get this – I got beaten by the boss in the castle, then came back to the same area. He was gone, but his minions were still there so I killed them. He didn’t reappear even then, though his minions keep respawning, and I’ve tried walking through all the walls that give me an arrow to no avail in case he’s run off somewhere else.

As for the first boss, I couldn’t fend off the 12 ambushers so went off and forgot about it, levelled to 20+ doing other quests before remembering to return XD It is too difficult for so soon in the game, but there’s more than enough other stuff available to do.

I’ve also had my buddies instantly die during boss fights, for example the guy who keeps reviving somehow killed my archer when he died despite being nowhere near her.

Topic: Kongregate / End of Kong as we know it ?

Presumably they’ll ignore the ratings from people who haven’t downloaded it, and since the people who know they won’t like it and rate 1 won’t download it, those ratings are ignored, leaving the higher ratings from the people who thought they’d like it and went for it. From the video I can tell I won’t like it, but I’m not going to download 7GB to be sure.

In response to a comment, Phoenix00017 said: "Actually, it’s not an ad. Kongregate added support for download games through the site. The games are tied to your Kongregate account, and could potentially get badges in the future. I’m sorry if this was confusing to players, but it is a game that we have tested and approved. "

Will games like this really get badges? :/ I know internet speeds are getting faster, but that’s a huge download.

You either deserve a medal, or need some addiction therapy. Or both :p

Topic: Kongregate / PETITION: stop badging MMOs where you have to wait

Are people supposed to want to get achievements? If no, then don’t bother with them. If yes, don’t tell them not to bother with them.

One thing I’m not sure has been pointed out with regards to tagging is that you probably should go for a raid where the baddy’s hp bar is lower than its timer bar – a good indication that the raid is on schedule (or ahead of schedule) to finish with those already in it.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Yeah, the game’s good for one playthrough, but after that it’s easy but tedious to optimise.
