The only truly hard level is the last one. The trick is to always sprint in every level.

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

Nope, I remember how much I suffered the first time and how hard it was to learn every sound and every button you have to press according the enemy. But once you know what sound means what button, it isn’t that hard. There is even a difference between the sound of the arrows that fly from the back and from forward. The most difficult one to difference in the later levels is the one between the peasant and the hoplite.

It is like a bullet hell, once you know the patterns, it becomes easier.

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

Hippolyta is one of my favorite games. I’ve beaten it long ago and several times. I would put a hard badge for completing it and an impossible one for completing it in hardcore.

Topic: Technical Support / Accelerated games

Greetings, I am having trouble playing some games. I don’t know the technical terms so I will try to explain what happens: I’ve been playing for several days “Road of the Dead 2”, and it worked out perfectly. Now, from 3 days from now or so, the game goes completely accelerated, for example a zombie takes two seconds or three from when it leaps to the hood until the attack, although it goes so fast that ussually you have hit 5 or 7 obstacles so it leaps off. From time to time the acceleration reduces and it goes at normal or a little bit faster speed (But just for one or two seconds).

The curious thing is that I started playing other games, and a little bit more or less they all work wrong, even bit battles. Yet my computer and my PC games works as fine as always…

What can I do?

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / New craft items?

I am trying to get all the new craft items, but I couldn’t get anything… In the patch notes it says “Random Encounters in TiED areas 2, 3, and 4 have a chance to drop the craft items” and “Each TiED raid contains a Plundered Treasure Chest that, when combined through crafting, will bestow new bonus raid damage to Roland.” What does “tied” means in this cases?

I was wondering if there was a way to collect cristals better than the random luck of the the chests when you visit someone.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / What do you hate about this game?

Hey, all the points I’ve won are for the badges, and rating games (I am lvl 57 by now). Usually I don’t like multiplayer games since they steal your life even more that games that end at some point. In the beginning I didn’t like this game: There is no tutorial, or anything that explains you inside the game how things work out (Like the difference between the classes of your legion), it is absurd to have to buy more than one item to be able to fight against an enemy (Even when it is no problem, since the money is almost useless, except for buying houses to get more money), and the stupidest thing of all is that we summon back all the enemies we kill, a thousand times more powerful. That just don’t make any sense lol. Despite all of that things that doesn’t make any sense at all, it is an excellent game, that somehow, I don’t know it yet, is fun. I am level 71 by now, and I am still enjoying it.

PS: Having to wait for the energy/stamina/honor to fill up is the best part, since that way you don’t loose your entire life for a game that has no ending. It forces you, from 60+energy/stamina/honor, to leave the game for two hours. F*cking MMOs usually force you to stay in the game or else (Someone attacks you and loose everything, etc)

Perhaps I didn’t understood well… If you click in the region map your own city, the tab that pops out will give you the coords of your alliance members?

I was not aware America was pursuing anti-communist polices in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Now, after reading the comments… Who can deny that ‘some’ of you are afraid of a nuclear strike. Here some comment from that game: “FuzyHead

Everyone is afraid of a nuclear strike. You’d have to be an idiot to not fear one.

It would appear as it you have two pieces of anecdotal evidence. If I could select two comments from an international gaming website, and use them to make up the basis of an entire country’s thoughts, then I could say just about anything.

About the dictatorships, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Reorganization_Process they where only 25 years ago…
And about the nuclear attack, it is not only anecdotic, it is reflexed in the most various documentaries where the catchfrase is “After it happens we will be wondering what could we had done”, and as you just said “Everyone is afraid of a nuclear strike. You’d have to be an idiot to not fear one.”, which contradicts with the next sentence.

Oh, and certainly I am not afraid of a nuclear strike… Just a month ago I was wishing for one in my country… Only a few miles away from where I stand… (From now on, not important to the thread) would you imagine all the peronist scum vanished, cleared in only one strike… Argentina would had became an Utopia… In a couple of years, obviously.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the world hate or love USA?

I am from Argentina (You know where that is? Nop, it is not bordering Spain as most answered me)

It is a South American country, along the South Atlantic with possessions in Antarctica, a founding member of Mercosur (if I spelled it right), who has some problems with repressive dictators, if I remember correctly. That would be a problem, now wouldn’t it?

doesnt inflict the loss of millions because of economic wars or even trivial ones to keep the people stupidized looking at how cool they are killing people.

What wars would be those? If I recall correctly, South America has fought some of the stupidest wars in the history of warfare. Argentina’s got the Falklands for sure.

Ehm, maybe you forgot to say something. The dictators were put by USA. Trained by them and used to counter attack the “Communist” threat in our countries. Another reason to hate yanquiland, thanks to you in Argentina “dissapeared” 30.000 people, and the flakland war was also, thanks to the dictators you put in our country.
Please, when you say some facts, dont forget to say the most important…

Oh, I recall (But I cant find) someone who said that my conception of USA was based in the cold war era mixed with something else. Well, here it is:

Nah, my idea of a ultra patriotic and hateful toward anything different to them and fearing the communist threat is not actualized…

Topic: General Gaming / Nerdok games are good even before we test them!

This image caused me a lot of fun! A Hot New Game in the front page that havent even been played by 200 people, and it still havent the medium rating. But it could be only a Nerdok game!

That one in particular was very creative. I liked it more than the neighbors version.

And, to open some discussion, what do you think about Nerdok games?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the world hate or love USA?

You are right about all the wrong used worlds. Problem with the translator. I found it amusing the page you gave me (About China) specially when you read the second answer, talking about freedom of speech in US

At least we have free speech, unlike some other countries I won’t care to mention.
And about the first answer, if we consider it to be true, we should consider Peron government as Communist also. Now it is more like a welfare state, but communism?
Now I will explain economic wars (My mistake too): Well, lets see, the wars are the best way to keep the mobs focused in something different that the real problem. When US have an economic problem, they make a war because it has a psychological influence that focus the peoples minds on their hate towards the enemy. (To understand better this concept reading 1984 from Orwell would be great, a excellent book). About the government not making the people stupid, I find it hard to believe with yours worldwide (in)famous education system. (At least you (Not you exactly, the yanquis I knew) recognize you have a problem). And I am not talking about Cold War, I am talking about the war against Irak. It is really hard to say that that war isnt a circus.
The Ad Hominem is not only an Ad hominem, that is right, it is also an ignorantio elenchi. It is an Ad Hominem because it says “Who are you to say that” (From what country blahblah) (That is an attack to me) and after it says “Every country have its problems” trying to divert the attention to other countries when this topic is about US.

I would write more but I must leave.I suppose it is still enough.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the world hate or love USA?

First of all I must clarify something. When I talked about culture, I made a mistake. I meant “general culture”. I traveled to US, and I noted that there were little people that known such facts as how was the disposition of power in the WW2 (Except against the japanese because of pearl harbor) knows almost nothing about Greek culture (the good old greece) rome, or even the obscurantism. (I had the idea of making this questions because of a survey that explained exactly that, and I didnt wanted to believe it until I see it) (Of course, I didnt traveled because of that, I didnt even wanted to travel)

Also, the fact that they lie to themselves and also bring to the topic the fear to the communism,

Who does this, exactly?

From all the documentaries about national defense there was one that got my atention because of that topic, and it was extremely “YOU MUST FEAR THE COMMUNIST TERRORISTS, WE ARE IN CONSTANT THREAT OF A NUCLEAR STRIKE” ¿¿¿¿What???? You must no longer fear the rage of god but now you must fear the terrorists? Or, if you want another example, here:

….

The capitalism is the antithesis of the communism, and this quote is a sing of (First of all, bigotry, because US isnt the inventor of the capitalism, and it is barely one of the “biggest” exponents of it) and the way of thinking, not explicit now but it is there that the communism still exist.

The communist threat, as you call it, is probably the USSR, although there is this little up and coming country called China- not sure if you’ve heard of it, but they’re communist and they’re vying for power.

First, you say “Who does this exactly” and after you say that they still exist and their are vying for power. But wait! You said CHINA is COMMUNIST? Hahahahahaha another example of lack of general culture. China is as capitalists as we all are. You could have quoted something more “Communist” than china, like Cuba, but you will be wrong too, Cuba is a dictatorship (And it is falling apart, also)

And, for the coup de grâce,

Honestly, what country are you from that you can cast stones at America? Every nation has it’s problems.

That is a blatant Fallacy ad Hominem. But I will answer and I will answer why I take the liberty to criticize US. I am from Argentina (You know where that is? Nop, it is not bordering Spain as most answered me) and I am very critic about this country. (Mine) if it where a post about “Why do you hate Argentina” I wold be posting for hours and hours, but still our “problems” as you call them, doesnt inflict the loss of millions because of economic wars or even trivial ones to keep the people stupidized looking at how cool they are killing people. Yes, most of us are ethnocentric, and I really despise that attitude, but as I say, it is really hard to find ONE american that knows their country “problems”, and speak about it. Why? because if he does that he is a terrorist or an unpatriotic.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the world hate or love USA?

Why I hate United States? Mhh, because of their total lack of culture, and their ethnocentrism and bigotry. The perfect example is the north america centered map they created to look like they are the center of the world, or the fact they call themselves as “America”, completely forgetting the fact that there are other 34 countries. (Beside the fact the common people hardly understand what other countries are and they see the world as if they are in the center and the other people are poor little guys that cant enjoy the greatness of “america”. Also, the fact that they lie to themselves and also bring to the topic the fear to the communism, showing their lack of culture because the “communist threat” as they call it doesnt exist since decades, and they attack you with the reasoning “If you dont love us and bow down to our mighty power you are a communist pig”, and, with that excuse they make deaf ears to any possible critic to their culture (Or lack of it).

But if I have to say something in defense of United States is the fact that the critics to the "They destroyed the english language are plain stupid. It is more than common that, when a country independence himself from his “colonialist” will start to develop his own language. Lets dont forget that, even when now they are a international potency they were before a colony of england (Shame on you england, slaving countries) and, we must not forget that the yankis have a lot of foreign incoming, and the diverse languages mixed obviously will change the mother language. (For example, they say “color” instead of “colour”, and in spanish it is indeed “color”)

I certanly hate them.
But they give money to the site. So I ve no problem with that. (Thats the only reason I can figure to Caesary still appear on featured games)

Topic: Kongregate / Hmm Yea or Nea new featured games?

Hello, I just wanted to know how you choose the featured games in the first layout.
I dont understand it, because a game rated 3.74 is second, before the games with rate 4.25 or more.

I sincerely hope your answer. Thanks you very much.

As I read, I see than many of the number one choice fans says than it appeals to the new Kongers, so they can find the best games than they havent yet played. I might remind you than a little bit under the featured games, there are “Browse Games by Category” where you can see exactly the same as in the first layout. Under the exeption than Caesary is second, than I think thats outrageous.
When they look by cathegorys (Really normal in new players) or in “games”, they will see what is in the 1st layout, so it will be nice for the NEWEST players, but when they’ve played for one week or so, they will find it, like us, (The older players) annoyng.

P.S: I really prefer the second one. There are more new games than, if you dont play in Kong for three days you just dont see them. (Oh, and if possible, I still prefere the first, is the best of the 3)
