Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / quick Q: where is the hard reset option?

Any mutilated import link should reset you.

Topic: Kongregate / the commenters mentality

Not sure how heavily it would involve infrastructure changes… also it would drive nonsense and butthurt posts over to that place, so… I’m afraid, we will have to love this system and that’s it. :) In Lome I shall post like Lomans do. Even if I get annoyed from time to time.

Actually the more I re-and redesign my comments the more likes i have on them. I so far got to 16 woohoo! :)

Topic: Kongregate / How can i remove fans ?

For casual gamers it shouldn’t be a problem having “fans”. Even if they have annoying account names or gross avatars they do little more than existing. They do see your progress though and that’s it.

It’s not that they can actively annoy or spam flood you like in a certain other social network.

If you are THE solitary gamer completely outgrossed by random internet peeps adding you then you might have a legit issue of psychological nature… but you’ll still live.

My fans are all dudes I have no clue about and since we never ever spoke a word I can’t say they were annoying. More like my neighbours. They hear me power-rant and ragequit every now and then and that’s fine.

Topic: Kongregate / the commenters mentality

I’ve been wondering about this for some time.

While people rightly downvote the big no-nos, like spam or uneducated grunt messages, they seem to be hating a lot on personal messages that actually are quality comments, only personal. I noticed a greatly forced positive attitude that seems to be rather blind and sometimes oppressively unnatural.

Nothing wrong with eliminating meaningless hate comments but legit negative opinions are pushed into the minuses a lot while rather lame and tiring game title related puns and and (by now almost obligatory) imaginary quotes from a game character can soar up into the thousands.

I guess it’s just how the community works. Peeps simply aren’t interested in your opinion, but like puns.

Topic: Kongregate / Does Kongregate regret the idea of Kongpanions?

Kongpanions are great even if somewhat unuseful now. What good is your rank? ;)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / The utlity of bitching

The Surge ended. Now Devs and players can see where to place new updated content. Luckily HH knows weightless feedback from quality feedback.
Thus, the problem has been solved.

The bandwagon will roll endlessly, paining after whatever there is to pain after.

Keep the devs bombarded with quality feedback, so that they can fix us up quickly.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Surge should never end.

In case no one else said so far… I nominate the golden suit as a surge item for money. Or a new item. Those want it, can buy it.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Where'd My Multipliers Go?

I also found my gold on the work PC which is odd, since it should be linked to my account and not to a specific computer.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Where'd My Multipliers Go?

I also think it will be resolved, Kong monitoring purchases and all.
I also noticed something that’s off.

Because of the offline bug I ex-/imported my game from home to work where I purchased 20 gold and spent 10 for an upgrade. After returning home I noticed that my remaining gold is missing. It should be linked to my account, and not a PC so something is amiss here.

I will return to work tomorrow and check if my purchase is still listed and in case it isn’t I will take up comms with Kongregate directly.

I assume there are people who had a bump either with gold purchases or with previous purchases not being restored properly.

It pops up again after a refresh.

Mine is back after refreshing the page. Try doing that.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / progress bar flashing

Mine were stable after the update but then after a nice little reset they started flashing.
It is very annoying. :)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / New update

No one mentioned this yet so I’ll pitch it in:

I find the new currency system sends a wrong message in its current form.
In order to get access to 10 gold bars worth of upgrades (previously 10 kreds) you now have to purchase a minimum of 20 gold bars (20 kreds). In other words the new currency system forces you somewhat. Nobody will die of 2 bucks, but it does send the wrong message and should be addressed.

Topic: General Gaming / Kongregate current situation with games:Do you agree?

No deniying it, it does start making a difference after some time. I loved the multitude of awesome games when I joined up. Then as I played them all, and had to start waiting for new ones to appear, I also started noticing how precious those few gems are. But that’s jsut how things are with anything and everything.

Nothing wrong with idle games either. They have a revival now. I like them better than runners or those energy bar based kred-milkers. They will give way to other genres. Pray, your favorite genre will have a renaissance next. :) I’d like to see upgrade games next. Upgrading the upgrades so that we can upgrade more. :P

I personally play from the office, so anything ‘multiplayer’ is out of the question for me. And still I find enough to do here and that after years! Not to mention that I’ve reached only halfway of all badges… so there is so much more to do here.

Dying? Nah. :)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Kred Refund?

I chipped in a while ago (before the update) to show my appreciation to the dev(s) but feel that the new turn of events don’t exactly mirror my expectations.

As a capitalist I understand my investments target future, yet uncertain outcomes so I’m not flipped, if things don’t follow my imagination. I give things a go. Maybe it’s good in another way.

Topic: Off-topic / I'm really sad

I have a few hours till I go home. I’ve been thinking about popping open a nice belgian trappist beer. I’ll make sure I’ll send a ‘cheers’ over to you. :D This way I’ll get the depressant and you get the anti-depresant.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / Your first pot

Pot gotten:Speed
Enemy:Sthno the Snake Queen

I had absolutely no idea what that thing was… nor what a soulbound bag was… I ran for it thinking others might loot it. Seeing it I wasn’t impressed. Drank it.
