Topic: Chess Evolved Online / Daily Piece Discussion - Day Two: Bishop

paladin and bishop are best church friends, considering the extremely confusing attacks that can be conducted with the paladin’s unblocked swap ability combined with most “vanilla” pieces capable of unlimited length attacks and endless potential for baiting losses

Topic: Chess Evolved Online / MINIONS: Which is your favourite and which is your bane

Just started. Don’t have strong opinions on meta yet, but the giantslime unit seems to spread like herpes if you hold one in reserve for late game, and take everything else out in a trade fight involving pressure using a lot of units with weird movement patterns. It seems like it could backfire if a normal slime got charmed, though…

Topic: Crush Crush / Balance Discussion / Suggestions - Crush Crush Game Designer

Quite simply, with how the game is being developed, there’s zero reason to test somebody else’s game for free, much less give them ad revenue for it, with the current expectation that players go through the entire experience from a new save every time the game has a major change with no payoff. This was published too early, with too much expectation as to what it will be, without consideration as to what it is right now. If you want to be a Hyper Hippo success story, you have to actually follow through on their methodology.

Most games deal with speed limits by focusing boosts on other types of multiplier besides speed past a certain point.

It’s “all good”.

Ah. OK, fine.

It’s just kinda lulzy to me that I think I’ve actually met more supposedly fanatical muslims who turned out to be all right people, than I’ve met practicing protestants who I could say the same. Apart from United or Anglicanism, I’ve only met a single Evangelical who wasn’t ignorant and/or inflammatory.

Oh, and off to the side, doing its own thing, is Mormonism. That’s the only religion I’ve found, anywhere, where its members are ‘proof’ that their beliefs inspire moral excellence. I haven’t yet met one who was anything but genuinely friendly. The downside is that even by the standard set by other religions, their beliefs are completely bonkers.

honestly, most theologically backwards people are extremely nice and would do the right thing if they had not been told otherwise, but when they’re presented with a caricature of a human and are told to cast “the other” out as garbage by their peers, they have difficulty with resisting those ideas when they come from other people who also seem entirely reasonable and appear to share common ground

which is how mormons, a previously ostracized minority group, were led to believe that they should bankroll the ostracization of another minority group

City Invaders is a straight up copy of “Journey of the Prairie King” from Stardew Valley, and I don’t know if that is grounds for disqualification or not.

probably already suggested, but…put the collected kongpanions on a different page than the kongpanion progress page because the number of images loaded when i open the progress page is getting ridiculous

So, how about some actual strategies? Units, tactics, stages?

I think you have adjusted equipment stats after making this, so I think you should go over those again. In particular, weapons.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / KI SENSU - The Golden Fan (Recruitment Thread)

Yep. Only do honorable things…like attempt to stem the tide of recruitment into other clans by entering Kong boards several weeks late in order to boost your own numbers for war actions. Be sure to throw in a few filler sentences for goodwill while barely disguising your actual motives. After all, you wouldn’t want them to know that you didn’t care about them at all until it was clear that you needed them to win. This game is for everybody…except for people who can’t fight your battles for you (“we don’t need someone who can’t follow order [sic]”).

Remember kids, honor is smiling at your fellow players while reaching for their ankles under the table.

Jumping undead actually have less hp than walking undead, so you don’t need heavy for them.

Topic: Straw Hat Samurai: Duels / Not able to spend move points in War Room

That’s a global timer for army actions. It’s 24 hours per attempt to capture/defend a space for every clan. At that time, troops in each space are tallied up, each soldier opposing another dies, and the remaining forces win those spaces.

If there is no HQ but there’s still a flag, that means that there is some kind of action being performed there, but your clan doesn’t care enough to have an HQ built there, or is already completely winning and has removed the HQ as it is no longer necessary.

Entirely possible. Should probably tell Lut.

If your AI character is killed in an attack on the tile you’re on, you will be ejected from the tile and have to re-enter from an HQ square.

If you are trying to defend a tile, it is usually a better idea to defend from an adjacent tile than standing in the tile directly.

While there are some attacks that deal piercing damage, the majority of the threat is coming from normal attacks.

In this game, there’s technically no good or evil clans, so that doesn’t matter. What DOES matter, though is our sinister plotting.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Blue Moon] Stats & Ability

Yeah, I would like to know how much each point of the secondary stats represents in terms of percentage. Also, the costume bonuses are rather unclear. +X number = Y% increase??? Is this increasing a chance out of 100%, or is this a percentage of the base chance? There are so many numbers, but almost zero explanation.

Topic: Kongregate / [Event] The Cuteness Overload Quest!

The only thing I was lacking in was the ability to log into the internet five times out of seven every single week, so I’m not going to argue for the worthiness of such an arbitrary condition that doesn’t take into account vacations and heavy work schedules. The only thing that many of these people had was more convenient free time.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Unity Web Player crashed

had same issue since update a few weeks ago

i don’t remember how much angels or money i had because the number is massive and i’m not obsessed enough with this game to keep track of it independently

i don’t have a backup export save because i didn’t think the game would just up and explode without any warning, not that it would help since there’s nothing to enter into a crashed plugin screen

i had the crash award and i don’t feel like resetting clean without it (if i could even figure out which of my hundreds of hidden, cryptically named system files is the save and then clear it out and have it work)

i have also basically missed all of the christmas event

i don’t know how a game can mess up this hard without any recourse for recovery

but obviously none of this is their fault and they don’t owe me anything because it’s free!!!

It takes all of five seconds to realize that Siyalatas will actually be detrimental if you even think about touching that one. Have you even taken any kind of design classes?
