I mean, I’ve seen the most formidable collection of reactions all over the forums to claim how nasty were the devs, how horrible was their rating update, how ruined the game was… Stop. They added a ton of content, then they had a sleepless night to fix a good lot of what you vomited on them, they released the patch in 24 hours, and STILL complaining? Okay, this game is far from perfect, and I admit it, but won’t you just stop complaining? If I remember correctly, 1 week ago, you were almost trying to shoot HHG with sniper rifles for not being fast enough. Therefore, they had to rush it a bit, and now that this upgrade is out, you’re complaining even more? Is that supposed to be logical? I’m tired of peoples that just can’t accept changes. We’re living today!


Well, I was really angry when typing, and will probably be insulted, but I don’t regret it.

Oh, and Shark: I’m level 44. Does that makes me more legit than a lv 1?

+1

so you dont find that the same day the update is released, several kong accounts are all created with the name “capitalist” as part of the user name, that start leaving postitive forum posts and comments on the game? I sure find that fishy.

Nope. Still not playing. Very laggy, unresponsive button presses (shows the button being pressed, doesn’t ACTUALLY do anything), the scrolling via scroll wheel is a great touch but goes so fast as to skip pages of achievements. And the UI is still the new, cluttered, jumbled, eye-sore.

Look, I get that you guys had someone working really hard on the new UI. But for this game, I still think it was the wrong movie. The old UI, simple, efficient, is WHY some of us chose to play this idle game over the many, many other options available. We always had the buy options and money data on screen. When we went to look at the achievements, buy options were all still there. When we were upgrading, buy options were all still there. And THAT is important because we could buy things WHILE upgrading.

This new update kills all of that. And the laggy, unresponsive UI kills the speed of the game.

You’re working to fix things, and working quickly, I appreciate it. But as long as this UI is the one for the game, I’m still not playing. This isn’t a knee-jerk “one look and I’m gone” reaction. I have been TRYING to use it. But the functionality that I want is gone. The speed I am used to is gone. The interface is non-responsive. This is no longer a game I want to play.

Hey come on, give them some credit. They’ve been working on this game practically around the clock ever since the new update came out, trying to fix all of our picky complaints about how we “don’t like the freaking colors”. They’re trying their best, alright?

oh look another level 1 account coming out to suck up to the makers of this game. Suspicious much? hmm.

They obviously did not give a flying flake about non mobile users with this update. The inability to scroll at all without pain tells me they just tested it on mobile.

Mobile game makers have ruined many kong games. This is another one.

agree. HHG can spout nonsense all they want, this was obviously a mobile port. kong is not an Itune app store

zoom out to 100%, refresh. if that doesnt work, try it at 90% and refresh.

Then rate it 1 out of 5 and quit the game.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Why this Update blows! (V 2.0)

I wondered how long it would take before the making of games for phones first, instead of for kong first, ruined a game for me.

This game is the patient zero for me.

I guess I have to accept that mobile gaming is where all the money is, and they don’t care about an interface for normal desktop users.

yup, great example of changing things in a GUI that didn’t need changing. This game is garbage now.

The issue is one warrior can use vile insult every turn to maintain debuff and it effects all targets rather than just one. This makes it pointless to have more than 1 warrior on a team.

For those of you who have been seeing this issue, I’m going to just throw an idea out there that might be worth trying (it couldn’t hurt, since it either works, or doesn’t change anything). Try clearing all of the games from your blocked list, and then don’t block them again until you get messages from them (which should appear at that point, otherwise there’s something else going on). See if it fixes them after doing this, since I’ve also blocked these same games and haven’t ever seen one of these “ghost” notifications.

1. how would I know which games? I cant see the ghost messages.
2. I have many blocked games. no.

I agree with this, these all seem rather trivial to me.

As far as Game Message spam, I don’t have a problem with it even though I’ve played many of those games. The first time I get a message I don’t like I click “Block” and that’s solved.

again, for some of us, this DOES NOT work. You still get ghost message notifications for messages that don’t exist when you go to the folder

For those wondering, Kong’s policy for developers to send mass messages is here

If you don’t play a game often at all, you can’t receive them.

Here’s a kinda-long summary..


Mass Message Communications
Communicating With Your Players
The Kongregate platform enables developers with popular and highly-rated games (minimum 10,000 gameplays, with at least a 3.75 rating) to communicate with their players to let them know about new updates, events, promotions, and content. These communications can be sent out to current players (anyone who has played the game 3 or more times ever and at least once in the last 10 days) and inactive players (anyone with 5 or more gameplays but who has not played in the last 10 days). You can send out an active mass message at most once every 7 days, while inactive mass messages can be sent at most once every 30 days. Players will receive these messages through the Kongregate messaging system.

I call this an outright lie. I get messages from games I haven’t played in YEARS
