I don’t really care about points, Aliens have the better medal. The Marines one is boring.

Well that’s a matter of opinion. I personally didn’t want that alien thing on my profile so I got all 5 marines badges this week even though I only needed one more alien badge to get the medal.

Aliens should have won.. How did the Marines won the contest? :/ I saw more Aliens in chat rooms than Marines..

The people who actively participate in chats are a very small percentage of all active Kong users. The people in chat rooms with you are even less. That’s not exactly an accurate sample group.

I’m really happy the Marines won and all, but I am a bit surprised they did. I would like to see some final numbers as well to see how close the teams were.

Topic: Kongregate / [Contest] Aliens vs. Colonial Marines Quest (Colonial Marines Win!)

Why is everyone so upset about not being able to get both medals? It’s part of the fun. Was nobody around for the Mirrans vs. Phyrexians event? A lot of you seem to have accounts old enough to at least be aware of it. They fixed the bug so nobody has both medals anymore and you can still earn all the badges for the side you didn’t choose. That should be enough. I like events like this. They are fun and as a bonus reinforce that you make choices in this world and sometimes you have to stick with them.

If I could just choose the whole lot from this list + a close runner someone mentioned it would be:

- Bloons TD 5
- Knightmare Tower
- Incursion
- SCGMD4
- Decision 2
- Strike Force Heroes
- Several Journeys of Reemus Chapter 4 Beastly Blackhole of Bureaucracy
- Musaic Box
- Fancy Pants Adventure: World 3
- Jacksmith

Oh man. I would kill for that list. The only game on there I don’t like is Decision 2, but that’s just because I don’t like zombies. My personal list would probably be this but with Paladog instead.

Kong has stats on game ratings out to at least 6 decimal places—even though the ratings for both round to 4.14, Musaic Box’s is apparently higher.

Yes, fair enough. I guess they had to implement a hard cutoff point somewhere. But it is difficult not to feel a little bit disappointed when there is a maximum of 0.22% difference between them. Especially since it looks like SCGMD4 is the 11th, if the Highest Ratings sorting function is correct. exasperated sigh Oh well.

Topic: Kongregate / More levels before 2013?

If enough people really want to raise the level cap, then so be it. But I am really, really opposed to there being no cap at all. I think someone else mentioned it earlier, but I would probably be less interested in Kong in general if there was no final goal to be aiming for.

I am certainly not one of the hardcore players here on Kong, but I have been around and pretty dedicated for over 3 years now. I’m one of those people who (way more than) primarily gets points from badges and quests so that is mainly what I focus on. And even though I have slowed down because I have to work now and such, I still find myself here looking for games to work slowly toward that elusive(for me) 65. If there were just infinite levels, I think I might stop showing up because all of a sudden levels mean nothing. Or at least less nothing than they do now. But that’s only my one opinion. Just felt I would voice it.

Topic: Kongregate / The Scared Stiff Quest

Originally posted by JKuang:

Anyone else bothered by the fact that the icon for it is smaller than the other medals?

YES! Extremely bothered by the image size and I hope it gets fixed. But at least it is the appropriate size on the see all awards page.

Also, I really like temporary quests. It’s more fun racing the clock to push yourself for the badges. And then you get to have something that nobody can ever get again. Makes me feel all special and stuff.

Topic: Kongregate / So, what do you guys think about the new Kongregate layout?

I like it, it’s nice. But one major concern of mine I guess might just be me, but when I start a new game from the badges page I used to look at which game category was higlighted on the top of the page to see what kind of game it was and if I wanted to play it (right now or at all). Now I have to look at the tags which aren’t always readily apparent. I guess I’ll get over it.

Whats all this about evil and good? If you read the faction descriptions , then they both sound like some racial supremacy organisations. I think if you were good, then a call to arms should not end with Join us to keep MIRRODIN PURE! as this leaves with a nasty taste. So judging from the descriptions, you are between a rock and a hard place.
I for instance hate Mastermind: World Conquerer, so I played through the last 7 levels of Epic War 2, as this was less of a pain, not because of some hypocritical considerations about good and evil. The world is not all black and white, e.g. if there a two parties, its not neccessarily one good and one evil, it can be two evils which differ in their degree ;-)

I think it sounds more like it’s about the Mirrans trying to protect their home versus the Phyrexians trying to invade it and take it as their own. That description paints the Phyrexians as the aggressors, thus the bad guys. If they asked if they could come over for a play date and share some cookies I don’t think there would be a war.

I’m not. That’s what I said. It’s about Mirran nationalism.

Topic: Kongregate / Join the Mirrans

Are those counters you guys are looking at a number of people allied with the Mirrans or the numbers who have actually completed the quest and received the medal?

As for winning or losing, even if we don’t get the trophy, I’d rather have the Mirran medal on my page win or lose. It’s nicer and stands for goodness and pride in one’s home and the willingness to defend it.

Yeah Mirrans for the win. We will endure! …Epic War 2 that is. If we can get through that, we can get through anything.
