First of all, I’m sure there have been plenty of threads complaining about what I’m about to complain about, but the lack of an integrated search system on the forums makes it ridiculously hard to go find them. Yes I know I can use Google to search the forums, but the fact that it is part of the website is ridiculous.
On to the rant. High score hacks are absolutely ridiculous. Literally every popular game I’ve ever played on this site has some stupidly high number about 10 or more times bigger than the second place score. It is infuriating when you actually work hard to obtain a high score that can only be 4th or 5th on the leaderboard at best.
Also, the comment system on games is horrible. More often than not, one of the “top rated” comments is “this game so gud. thumbs up so dev makes sequel. lol.” But people are going to karma whore anyways and that’s unchangeable. What’s more fundamentally broken is the lack of any way to reply to comments and actually HAVE THE USER WHO IS GETTING REPLIED TO SEE THE COMMENT. WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TO ASK A QUESTION WHEN YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IF ANYONE HAS ANSWERED IT? This is my number one complaint about this website. I’ve been on Kong for quite a long time (level 62 from just badges now) and I love the site, but someone really needs to fix these flaws before adding another badge to a horribad screen-too-big money sucking MMO.
