Topic: Epic War Saga / Suggestion and Ideas

Either make the timer apply to vs computer games the same as in arena games, or include a warning in the tutorial that if the timer runs out when playing the computer, than you lose regardless of how much health you have.

I’m doing all right with helene/herbal, zina/DP, and eva/periapt. I used to use yoshi/GI as a finisher, but I switched to eva because she stacks up against Bestor and Connie better. Also, periapt is just great against gorbax and zina, if they have DP or OB (whichever) equipped.

It would probably just be easier to change all bench-hitting attacks to hit 3 random characters in 5-card matches. No need to introduce this reserve thing.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Popo The Youngster is a boy or a girl?

There used to be a thread discussing this. I don’t know where it went, but the consensus was that they still haven’t decided if popo is a boy or girl, and that Amaya used to be a boy, but is now a girl. Go figure.

Actually, I’m low SR, and even I know that intercepting is the skill based part. What really stings is losing because your 99% hit rate move misses…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Only random decks should be allowed

Not a horrible idea from a gameplay standpoint, but it should by no means be the only mode, as the whole point of Kongai is to tie the site together through weekly card challenges. Maybe two separate ladders?

If you are paranoid, we know who you are and what you want. Stay on the line so we can trace your call.
If you are delusional, press 7 and your call will transferred to the mother ship.
If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a small voice will tell you which number to press.

If you have a nervous disorder, please fidget with the hash key until someone comes on the line.
If you are dyslexic, press 6969696969.
If you have amnesia, press 8 and state your name, address, phone number, date of birth, social security number, and your mother’s maiden name.

If you have low self esteem, please hang up. All our operators are too busy to talk to you.”

my favorite part is that some of those are actually just same disorder.

for example: manic depressive is the name for bipolar in the DSMIII, and in the DSMIV they renamed it to bipolar disorder (type one and two, also, are seperate distinctions) :P

oh, and the guy who bought all the cards is stupid.
no one fucked up but him.

It’s not every day you see the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders quoted. What’s your level of education? I’m guessing at least upper class undergraduate.
Incidentally, I was thinking the same thing. Still funny, though.

getting laid after 70 years old is good for ur health, believe or not, unless u have serious heart problem

if ur heart is fine, the getting laid helps keeping it that way

Unless your “friend” has Gonorrhea, Herpes, Chlamydia, HIV, Hepatitis, Public Lice, Syphilis, and Genital warts.

Actually, it’s not that uncommon for seniors to have active sex lives. It’s not something younger people like to think about, but it is one of the hurdles med students have to get through, right up with accepting that patients lie to us and that, occasionally, we are going to have patients die whom we should have saved. Actually, I think the last one out-ranks the rest, but whatever.

so people die, big deal. its gonna happen eventually.

Obviously you don’t think the same way most med students do, but I guess it takes all kinds…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Best deck hitter combo

We all know that they’re played alot, so I was wondering which combo the community thinks is best. Here’s some combo’s I’ve seen:
Zina/Deadly Poison (my favorite)
Bestor/Elemental prism (probably OP’d, but who cares? If you’ve been playing for the past couple months, you should have won both cards in challenges when they came out)
Amaya/jade figurine (more annoying for the accuracy debuff than anything else, IMO)
VV/Necronomic tome (I’d love to try this combo, but I don’t have the tome. Does it work well for anyone else?)
Rathbone/Hero’s Flagon
Gorbax/pretty much any Robot item (I haven’t seen him alot yet, but I’m sure he’ll be abused when the challenge comes out.)

Also, Balt and Oxbox do have moves/innates that cause deck damage, so I’ll include them as well.
Discuss.

Edit: I suppose Marvin/Omega Boosters should be included in this if the OB can proc c his bench-hitting debuff.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai would be a better game if...

Longer games = good
The only real argument that Kongai is skill based (ie, better than randomly flipping a coin) is based on the yomi aspects, and games in the new game are not long enough to develop yomi. Period.
Instead, we have a new game, one where you try to guess what cards your opponent has in his deck while designing yours. Once the decks are built, yomi goes out the window. Entirely different, and not a whole lot of fun IMHO. Of course, if it floats your boat…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] self destruct to 100% hit please

Has anyone tried teaming up wei-shan with k9? I’m thinking k9’s innate would mesh really well with whirlwind, especially because the damage from whirlwind cannot be dodged by switching (it occurs during the range-change phase of the turn).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Need a default deck feature

The deck that was modified most recently is, by default, set to the bottom of your default list. This is highly annoying, as you tweak a deck, and then accidentally pick the deck that you haven’t touched since the original beta. I’d be happy if Kongai just changed the default so it automatically picks the deck you modified most recently.

Amazons never existed in real life… it’s a Greek legend.

sry about that, i meant the real-life legends of amazons

Actually, that does make a certain amount of sense. The legend was that the Amazons gave themselves mastectomies of the dominant side so their boobs would not get in the way of their archery (it’s tough to draw an arrow back if you’ve got this big mound of fat in the way)

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Popo the Younger: He or She?

Two serious issues with this thread:
1) I think the entire point of ambiguous gender cards like Popo is to demonstrate that, just occasionally, gender doesn’t matter. That’s why the text for the Tarot Card deliberately leaves Popo’s gender in doubt: because it should not matter what gender the card is, just that it can kick your ass.
2) Every other ‘popo is a male’ post has some version of this argument: ‘big breasts=women. No big breasts=man’. On the other hand, it’s this thinking that keeps my plastic surgeon colleagues in fast boats and big houses, so maybe it’s not such a big deal.
For the record, I buy the ‘gender identity crises only makes sense if the card is dressed in the opposite clothing’ argument. I say MALE.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] OMG! BESTOR IS HERE!

I’m doing all right with Bestor/prisim, Zina/poison, and Tafari/claws. Basically, I have Bestor do inner fire a few times, go far with either Bestor or Tafari, then bring out Zina. Mistress command + multiple inner fires + the traditional poison makes for an awesome tiger frenzy.

I also agree with getting rid of the miss/crit rate. Except for Popo, as that seems to be part of that cards definition…

4 characters each game.

This is actually an idea that could be worth trying out.

Agreed. Or, instead of making it four characters, just make the five-card mode the standard mode.
More characters=more time to figure out how your opponent thinks. Like RPS: If you do one, that’s pure luck, but when you get up to best of five, there’s a bit of actual strategy involved.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] konggi

Didn’t know about the interceptor damage not being split between the cannons (it’s been over a year since I’ve played SC), but it is split between the interceptors, which does matter.
You are correct in that carriers can stand toe-to-toe against any other unit. However, they are so expensive that they are often overwhelmed by cheaper, less powerful units. That is, in fact, how Blizzard balanced them out, which brings us back to the original point.
