Topic: Kongregate / kreds after lvl up?

Originally posted by Shadow_Craver:

Well they could give out 50 kreds every 20 levels. At lvl 20, 40, and 60. 65 gets you 100 Kreds maybe.
I’m pretty sure people aren’t gonna stop having a life to earn 50 kreds by making multiple accounts, rating and getting achievements until they reach level 20 .

You rate people far more highly than they generally deserve.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

The first stage of Chapter 4 of Zening is the only one that requires a human player, otherwise AIs are used. Though I remember seeing someone mention there’s a very specific, non-intuitive way to do that one level with the AI anyway.

I’m actually working on a Kongregate family tree, to show the relative ages and relationships of the chatrooms. ETA is no time soon though.

Topic: Kongregate / So, what do you guys think about the new Kongregate layout?

The risk is becoming like wikia as opposed to wikimedia in layout. Wikia today is super efficient… and nigh impossible to find anything on if you don’t already know exactly where to go from previous tedious trial and error. Wikipedia is less efficient perhaps, but much more user friendly, especially to a newbie.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: New navigation and footer test and changes to developer payment history pages

I have the layout with the tiny avatar and tiny writing.

My first reaction was how awful it was.

On consideration my only real problem with the new header is that the text is so teeny tiny, when there’s space for it to be bigger. Just a couple of points bigger would be infinitely nicer imo. Having my avatar back to normal size without hovering would also be lovely.

Any chance you could tell us what’s causing it? I suspect I’m having the same problem, but I’m not as savvy.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] Faction Wars balance change

I think a better system would be to have the battles loosely 50% starting first, weighted by a bias to average it out between any 2 players.

Topic: Kongregate / Impossible Badges Guide

You can grind once you’ve got Legend, though there’s not really any need by that point, you’ll have learnt how to play the game instead.

Topic: Kongregate / problems and corrupt moderators

I’m very happy to see religion discussed in my room. I even encourage it.

I’m very unhappy to see users treating each other with less respect than is warranted at the time.

Seed of Destruction should be included on the same grounds, but then again, it is awful.

Topic: Kongregate / Epic Quest

Can’t really feel it for Storm the House 3. It takes a long, long time before your own weapons or the enemies become anything impressive, let alone epic. It’s made me think of MAD: Mutually Assured Destruction though, which might be cool.

Incidentally, if cries of rage would be pleasing, I found Isabel from DJManiax rather epic. I can’t see that being a popular choice though.

Topic: Kongregate / Epic Quest

Epic Battle Fantasy 2 was part of Epic Week, which should give it kudos for the quest over its sequel.

The Epic War with the giant snowman boss is the one that feels biggest generally. 4? I know it wouldn’t have that badge for the quest, being a hard, but I’d go with that one of the series. If you have to have any of them, the whole series is pretty dull.

Ether War fits. Parachute Retrospect maybe? Ragdoll Invaders? Effing Meteors. Shopping Cart Hero 2. Either Cube Colossus or Heavy Weapons/Death vs Monstars could also be contenders, mutually exclusively. Speaking of Death vs Monstars, you absolutely have to include You Have To Burn The Rope.

Maybe a Reemus game? Robot Wants Kitty?

Nope, it definitely deserves a thread. We used to get threads for new badges all the time, with people discussing them. I find the more recent lack of them far less interesting.

Topic: Kongregate / About the tuning down of badges' difficulty

I’ve not tried playing DJManiax with keyboard yet. I’ve unlocked everything except Dash Hopes and it’s EX version, and earnt 10 crazy stars, 1 of which is from Isabel.

Worth noting that EX’s can be unlocked by getting a star on easy, so MrRubix’ list is slightly inaccurate about the 4CPs being needed for unlocks.

I think I’m close to the limit of what I can do with a mouse, though I’d like to unlock Dash Hopes before I learn to play on keyboard.

Not entirely sure why I’ve waffled all that, but the 76CP imp sounds like very, very good times.

Topic: Kongregate / Does Kong ban for being underage?

If a mod does decide there’s sufficient evidence to report an underage user don’t expect anything else. The user won’t be silenced or banned by the mod unless they’re abusing some of the conduct guidelines, and the mod’s unlikely to say when they’ve reported the underage user. It takes a while for an admin to get through the reports, so any action that does result from the report could take over a day to occur.

Topic: Kongregate / Ring Pass Not does not deserve badges

I’ve got the Ring Pass Not hard on 2 accounts, the second consecutively after the first. The first took weeks of playing it occasionally though, before I became good at the game.

This is really, in no way, at its core a luck based game.

Luck does affect each level, but only to a surprisingly slight degree.

Topic: Kongregate / Enough with the stupid artsy games

Personally, I find a lot of these games dull, repetitive, and/or pretentious in plot and storyline. Some of them are pretty poor in gameplay too. Others aren’t though.

Look at Love, forget the background. Then look at Particles, Red, Ragdoll Avalanche… we’ve got an oldschool game here, which is pretty fun. Some people get something from the background, good for them. Even if you don’t though it’s a reasonable game with other merits to enjoy. The same goes for the better games of the “artsy” type.

Topic: Kongregate / mmo's with badges

Originally posted by 123aaa789:

I don’t mind MMO’s getting badges, as long as the multiplayer aspect is either unnecessary if it’s random opponents/teammates, or, if it’s not random people, then if it doesn’t require mind-numbingly long amounts of grinding (sure, it’s not hard this way, but it’s boring). If I’m forced to go play a multiplayer game against some random other user, then that takes a lot of the fun out of it (even if you’re really good, you could get stuck against a much better player, as happened with me once in CastleWars2, I was matched up against MrRubix in a room).

MrRubix is better than you!? He’s very, very good, obviously. But then so are you. I wouldn’t have thought the skill levels between you so cut and dried.

It would be nice if he entered tournaments more. Last one he was in was the Amberial Axis release iirc, and that was poorly managed and only one game. I currently consider Friz the best gamer on the site overall, simply for his tournament pedigree.
