Topic: Kongregate / Have you completed any impossible badges?

Epic Boss Fighter is a simple impossible badge. The game even creates some lag itself, which makes it easier. Other badges that require little training are Streamline, Orbular, and Fold (this one may require a tutorial for some levels).

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

This is me beating Max Mesiria impossible again yesterday. With proper info, it’s not that bad (or that badge, lol). Would probably add this one to my trade list, trading it for badges I’m missing ;O)

And today I got the hard for FPS-Man. As I had already taken Vertigo badges last week, I’m now the proud owner of the full badge collection from 2013. This includes 79 easy, 105 medium, 48 hard, 2 impossible (Vertigo and Frantic 3) :D

Topic: Kongregate / I don't really like the kongpanion system.

Really. The variety of game styles being used is a positive point: you can choose two games you don’t need to play and still get your shiny. Add to it the fact that most badges are easy, and so are supposed to be doable in mere minutes, even with crap skills. This week, 5 easy used, last week there were 6 easy.

Getting shiny kongpanions isn’t hard, the system is there to help people. If you dislike most games to a point you can’t stand for some minutes and complete an easy task, it’s you, not the system.

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

Now, this was soooo EPIC it was almost worthy the creation of its own thread ;)

I was playing Max Mesiria 2, Battle Mode. My record was reaching wave 31 out of 51 you need to beat to get the impossible badge. I wasn’t expecting to get that far, I was collecting info about waves / enemies (something that helps A LOT), and then after wave 31 my character was already somewhat strong, and I could manage to beat most waves even easily. I had the feeling I could do the impossible in the current run, had around, dunno exactly, maybe 14 potions and 6 nectars. Then I faced that cursed wave 51 monster, which drains your health all the time, replenishing its own life. I played, played, used all my health items, and when my character couldn’t survive a single special attack (or two normal attacks), SURPRISE! :D

In fact, I’m a bit disappointed about collecting two consecutive impossible badges for the first time, would prefer something between them :P

Now I need +2 badges (one possibly being the new Gatekeeper badge) to reach 99% of the entire collection :D

EDIT: now that I know the late waves much better (and even checked the – now – complete bestiary), I finished the battle mode again, and this time with at least 3x Nectar and 6x Potion remaining, beyond lots of HP and MP. Yes, not that difficult. I could include this one in the list of impossible badges I would trade for Zunderfury impossible :O)

Have a story about a kid who watches his dad die fighting the Grinning Colossus.
Dad whispers to the son that he has to burn the rope before death.
Grows up training and seeing others fail for some years.
Boys turn to take revenge.
Colossus hits boy really hard and knocks him down.
Boy has flashback of what his father said to him.
Boy burns rope and kills him.
Everybody is happy.
The End!

The strange part is, the Grinning Colossus only shoot harmless lasers and can’t in fact kill anyone.

Mardek RPG and Deep Sleep are the best options IMO. Epic Battle Fantasy would be great, too.

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

After like two days playing it (I stopped playing 2 years ago after perfecting first 4 worlds), I got the impossible for Vertigo: Gravity Llama. Perfected worlds 5 and 6 as well, which were both hard (5 was even harder than 6). After mastering 7 first worlds (although not caring about some deaths in W7), I had already 47 medals. Got 4 more in the advanced W1, because I seriously disliked W8. Medals were the easiest part of the badge. Most trophies were also easy. Had to restart the PC to make the W7 trophy to register, but gladly it worked. Beating advanced W10 was a bit harsh, too. 870 total deaths, but hey, I died 1200+ just in level 40 of MoneySeize and couldn’t beat it yet, so I guess it’s fine.

Guess who is getting more skilled at SCGMD games? Perfected Run N Gun and My Heart Up Your Ass, supposed to be the worst songs for SCGMD2. I just need 2 more to get the impossible here, Big Blue and Rough Tone, which aren’t that bad but I suck at those. More training required.

Well, 28 badges to go…

EDIT: still a shame that unearned Amorphous+ hard badge in Vertigo’s picture :P

Topic: Kongregate / Shiny Kongpanion Unlocks

I support this too. I have all shinies, but people deserve a chance to get missed shiny. If you are offline for 3+ days, you auto-lose a thing you were collecting since 2 years ago.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges! [Suggest new badges here]

Like I said in another thread, having more people adding badges is easy, I bet there are people in the community who would volunteer to help. Members could discuss and improve badge ideas like they already do in this thread. What we need is to convince kong owners that they can hire people for free to do it, making them agree about let these members having the balls to add badges.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

Tip for those who like collecting badges: always get badges on multiplayer games ASAP. Soon or later, these games always die.

Disabling character creation, however, seems a bit harsh. Well, devs also don’t care about badge hunters.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges! [Suggest new badges here]

Some games I found with badge potential:

Tentacle Wars, released December 2010, 4.20 rating, has a score stat. Maybe could be possible to add level or completion. Its sequel is badged.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/gamezhero/tentacle-wars

Flagstaff: Chapter Four, released July 2011, 3.88 rating. Doesn’t seem to have working API, but first three chapters were badged.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/joelesler/flagstaff-chapter-four

The Bee Way, released September 2011, 3.56 rating, but looks pretty decent to me. Has already score stat, more could possibly be added, the developer has other badged games.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/SilenGames/the-bee-way

Tough Love Machine, released July 2015, 3.75 rating, no API until now. Dunno if the developer can add it.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/intmain/tough-love-machine

Jahooma’s LogicBox, released August 2012, rating 3.84, has already a level stat.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/jahooma/jahoomas-logicbox

Zombo Buster, released September 2013, 3.65 rating. No API now, but the sequel is badged, so it’s probably possible.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/FirebeastStudio/zombo-buster

Concerned Joe, released October 2011, 3.76 rating. Looks like has no API, maybe contacting developer could work.
http://www.kongregate.com/games/xelu/concerned-joe

Submarine vs Aliens, released December 2009, 3.73 rating and a bunch of interesting stats.

Topic: Kongregate / Okay, Badges n stuff...

The lack of good games is real, but I agree with DracoAlivi. Kong is doing nothing to soften the situation. Of course the MMOs whales are more interesting players money wise, but Kong should show some love for the devoted badge hunters. Look, every person who posted in this page has more than 1000 badges, and this means a lot of pages loaded, a lot of ads. We make money to Kong, too.

No more great games for now? Greg has tons of “old” good games suggested with badging potential. And badging some “not-that-great” games is ok, too, far better than no badges at all. But he is the only guy badging games, as a part time job, and having health issues. Kong cares a lot to promote money whore games, and cares soooo little about badges that they aren’t even changing the front page to promote the badges recently added.

The solution is not far, I guess. I remember a site where you could play Risk games online. The creator had 3 initial maps (world, USA and Asia), but soon he realized the chance to make his site to shine: he allowed devoted people from the community to create maps for his site. The maps were improved by discussion with other members before going live. The creator had little work and his site was more and more attractive to the community. Dunno why this couldn’t work here. We are talking about playing games and finding interesting tasks to make them badges. If Kong owners don’t want to pay for this job, I’m sure someone from the community would volunteer to help.

Simply letting the badge feature of the site to die is the worst decision ever. This attracts people, this makes people to return, even makes people addict. More people = more money.

Isn’t Kongregate looking like an abandoned site?

We are about to end the month with 4 badges added. The kongpanion year celebration is almost 3 weeks late and we know nothing about what’s happening. The front page talks about sweepstakes in another money whore MMO, current kongpanion, GiTD event (in fact, a good thing), and “NEW” badges for Coloruid (added December 7th) and Bullet Heaven 2 (added November 12th).

What’s up?

ZunderFury really looks crazy. I never reached wave 20, and it requires reaching wave 30 without any deaths. I guess I will need to use the old male tactic to get action impossible badges: lend my PC to my girlfriend, and after six months, when it’s 20x slower, try the badge.

Or you could just open up all your antivirus scanners simultaneously, while also opening a bunch of CPU intensive tabs up (I mean a few Strike Force Kitty tabs up and you’ll be seeing everything in bullet time). That or you could try to channel the power of CROWs into your computer, and all the CAWs will slow it down pretty dramatic. It’s like getting spam e-mails, except with your ears and eyes.

Lol, yeah, these might work… but the old male tactic is more charming ;O)

I spent so long trying to get that last thing for the impossible badge. I managed to get to wave 27 or 28 without dying a couple of times before giving up. Crazy damn thing.

Mate, I have some impossibles you don’t have. If you manage to get it, I could trade it for 2 impossible, or maybe, like 25 hardies you don’t have :O)

Edit: in fact, I have checked, trading it for Fold + Warlord Heroes (which you don’t have) would be perfect, little effort to put on these compared to ZunderFury… deal?

Nicely done. Four more and you’ll have as many as I do.
I’m surprised you don’t have the DO2 one yet. It’s one of the most awarded.

You know, I am a collector of “possible” badges, lol. I used to try up to hard badges, and go for an impossible the days I wanted to try something special. Now this doesn’t matter, I have just a few hardies to get, and most of those are very hard (even impossible like) to me.

DO2 is nothing. I’m really ashamed I was never able to get the hard for Amorphous+, 55k people have it. It’s by for the most awarded badge I don’t have. :P

Topic: Kongregate / Have you completed any impossible badges?

Yes. I got my 33rd just yesterday.

By the way, 99 Bricks was exactly my badge # 1000 (7th impossible). I spent some hours to get it too, and got the hard a few days later. Other special badges were Mission in space: the lost colony (badge I used to get level 65) and Bubble Tanks Tower Defense (badge # 2000 impossible).

If you want an impossible, I suggest you to try Monsters’ Den. Not really difficult, just time consuming, and even then, much less than several other impossibles, like Balloon Invasion.

ZunderFury really looks crazy. I never reached wave 20, and it requires reaching wave 30 without any deaths. I guess I will need to use the old male tactic to get action impossible badges: lend my PC to my girlfriend, and after six months, when it’s 20x slower, try the badge.

Ok, got Hexiom impossible.

This was difficult, I had some bad times. Won at 3:01 twice before getting it. I think I wasted like 6 hours. Would be 2 hours if I could get it in the first 3:01. But, the pain would be worse if the game was showing 3:00 and the recorded time was 181 :P

Anyway, now I have 33 impossible badges, and 33 unearned badges to go (20 I, including retired one for DTD, 13 H). Put the complete list in my profile. :D

Ok, I’m done with SCGMD4. Even got some more stars. But seriously, 100 out of 136 (considering the last song is almost unlockable) was a lot.

Now I have 98% of hard badges. And, if I get the impossible for Death vs. Monstars 2, I will complete 2012 collection. I suppose I will give it a try next days, but this should be hard, my record is around 310k and I will need 500k.

Once you bumped this one already, can you tell me what are the requirements to unlock Dash Hopes? Or which music it has to left / right? I still have 4 locked music there. I guess I will try the impossible soon.

Topic: Kongregate / If you were to create a Kongregate quest, what would the theme be?

I would support a quest for each games category, like an action games quest, another one for strategy, another one for sports, for puzzle, etc. Preferently each one also including some easier sided hard badges.

Thematic quests also look cool, like space, medieval fantasy, zombies, etc.

This sucks. Even if badge hunters don’t spend much money on those sucky MMOs, just imagine how many ads I have loaded during my six years quest for badges. Maybe it shouldn’t be a top priority, but having so little effort on badges will surely have a major drawback soon or later.

Topic: Kongregate / Post Your Wins.

^ Lol, you have some really strange goals.

Updating:

1) Got Bullet Heaven 2 Impossible and completed 2015 badge collection. Got it last December, which is now my month with more impossible badges: 4.

2) And today, first impossible for 2016. In fact I was going for MoneySeize, but died around 1200 times at level 40 and couldn’t complete it (all others are done already). I guess I will reach an all-time deaths record, should post it at post your fails thread. Well, I got bored and tried Frantic instead. Around 4-5 hours to get it, worst part was level 5 boss:

3) Lack of recent badges is letting me to improve my skills in SCGMD games. Got another hard, and i feel more skilled than ever… not enough for impossible yet, but I feel I can now get the hard for SCGMD4. Thanks, Greg. If you were badging games, this wouldn’t happen :P
