Topic: Kongregate / What is the weirdest thing to ever happen on Kongregate

I’d have to say back when the user passwords were able to be seen in the html file for their account page, and this one guy got into an admin’s account (Greg’s I think) to make Kong aware of it

Topic: Kongregate / Is there a reward for reaching certain levels?

Yeah, back when they were doing open beta for all the premium games like Kongai, Dinowaurs, Zening, that photo game, and the others, they did a beta based on level – first all level 40s and over got in, then 30s, then 20s, and so on

Kongai didn’t die because of Gamestop, it died long before that. After beta people stopped playing it pretty quickly, after a couple months there were only a couple pages in the lobby instead of 10,15+ full of people. It got so bad that they didn’t even do reruns of the new card series, instead opting to do weekly challenges.

I think the game wasn’t good but wasn’t a disaster either… was “free” cards came “eventually” and you could try them just to know if you could like the game after the new card came. So was an option to actually play other games, get a kongai card, play 5 match of kongai, wait next week. I was around when the first release of the game was around (have first edition higashi). And playing a card you just earned even if the game sucked was a nice feeling.

What I find hilarious is that you can still BUY the cards, but you wont ever be able to USE them.

And Gamestop killed the Kongregate regular userbase in general. I remember well known old users like billyfred or JudeMaverick or other users that I didnt even remember their names. I guess they might have grown up but still is a fact that all of them left (or stop coming as often) after gamestop bought kongregate. The badges got easier, facebook was introduced, the profile became a spam board. And hell even what I am typing right now is shown in my profile (so much for privacy). ITS A FACT! Facebook brings money but kills original users.

I think you’re being a little dramatic, here. First, Kongai was a great game, maybe could’ve been balanced more, but it was a ton of fun for me. Well known old users go and new users come and rise, it happens to every single online community that exists. Gamestop buying Kongregate didn’t ruin it, instead it gave the Greers much needed funds to really turn this into the kind of site that they wanted it to be. You have to keep in mind that this isn’t a non-profit organization, they need money. Even if they didn’t want to turn a profit, they would still have to pay bandwith costs, salaries to their employees, advertising fees, etc. But they aren’t a non-profit, they need to make a living too. Even if you don’t like the changes, and the forums don’t like them, that doesn’t mean the userbase hates them. A small part of the community that is vocal doesn’t necessarily represent the opinions of the majority. They have access to more data than us, they can see who uses what, where they click, how often, time spent on a page, etc.

They’ll disconnect anyways, better to have a system in place to minimize the damage done to teammates. Also make it unrated only if it is a solo queue game, not a premade.

Also, a bot should really take over when a player disconnects, and also should make the game not count to your loss ratio.

Also,lock the mouse when in fullscreen – I have 2 monitors, and sometimes move my mouse over to the left during game, click, and minimize it.

I mean the multiplayer lobby that you are in while queued for a game. Think of HoN’s chat system for an example.

Make a way, or if it already exists, publicize it more, to chat in the multiplayer lobby while in a game/game lobby.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]Fun game

Played this a little bit, was pretty fun. Seems more like Smite than LoL/Dota2/HoN, which is good. Really is a nice change from all of the other mobas out there.

Yeah, it was aired live here, but I missed it and can’t seem to find a recording of it :\

^

Would be appreciated if anybody had a link to a video of the full ceremony, or even multiple links to segments, or at least part of it. In return, I post kittehs. I tried a google search, but couldn’t find anything.

[PETITION] Permaban people without sense of humor and have an active dictatorship towards the perfect cleanness of the forums. (Z0MG DON’T DOUBLE POST!! Z0MG THERES ALREDY A THREAD FOR DAT!! Z0MG)

If your “Sense of humour” involves spamming, just go over to OT, your kind thrive there.

Funnily enough, it was Warlords: Call to Arms that brought me to Kongregate.
That game came out in April of 2oo8?

Isn’t that why we all joined this site?
I wanted the extra class, so came here.
Though I like switching accounts every so often, original being from April 08

I came there for Protector

I came here for Protector myself…

Think I came from CrazyMonkeyGames, not sure…. it was so long ago

Topic: Kongregate / Anyone else getting pissed off with all the "I want to fight you in _______" messages?

Originally posted by Darkruler2005:

For those who don’t know, several games now allow people to link to their game in a whisper to others (which may or may not be friends). This is advertising the game in an annoying and unofficial way.

The worst part about this is the fact that many games are designed in a way that you need to do this in order to succeed, unless you pay real cash.

3) I’ve played tons of games like these and each ones unique, never seen played a mafia based one before so ur argument of same model is fail.

Ever hear of Mafia Wars? Was one of the first of these games, and basically set the standard. It is from way back in myspace days.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Podcasts/Audiobooks?

Note: I am making this thread here, not in OT, to get serious replies. I have contributed more than enough to SD and to Kong in the past to be allowed one small thread.

Hi! I am looking for podcasts/audiobooks to listen to while working, on my mp3 player (We are allowed to). It is a 10 hour shift, so listening to music gets boring, and I barely get any radio stations at my workplace location. I would appreciate it if I could get some suggestions! I like things that are funny, informative, or relevant to current events/politics. As far as audiobooks go, it would probably have to be a play, as one person reading everybody’s voices would just annoy me. Maybe like an audio recording of a broadway play or something. As far as plays go, I like more modern ones such as Death of a Salesman, Pygmalion, and Arsenic and Old Lace.

Thanks!

I’ve never actually listened to a podcast before, so I have no clue who makes good ones :\

Topic: Serious Discussion / Something aside from Top Ramen.

Granola bars are awesome! Have you ever had a nutri-grain bar? I’ve been having a pretty big craving for them lately.

I’ll get back to you on the diet plan in a couple weeks. WHere I am living atm, I don’t have the flexibility to do one, but I am moving out soon b/c I just got a second job, and am actually looking to eat healthier with my girlfriend.

Thank you so much for your help, I’ll have to eat more of that stuff _ For reference, at my job, it is sun-weds, 3:00 pm – 1:30 am, with a break at 5:30, lunch at 8:00, break at 11:40. I work with drugs, so no food except on breaks :(

Topic: Serious Discussion / Something aside from Top Ramen.

1st, great informative topic :)

2nd, I eat a ton. I’ll eat a meal, and an hour later I am hungry and eat again. Now, I work at a factory with a 10-12 hour shift, so this is quite inconvenient. What kind of foods are good to make me feel full all day and give me the energy to do my job well?

Thanks :)

p.s. while I don’t eat too well, I am pretty healthy. I have a low weight and a strong heart (resting pulse of 50), but a little bit of belly flab. You can see my ribs, though! :(
