Topic: Card Hunter / Any way to delete all saved data and start over?

Went through the game once. It was so good, I’d like to start over. Can I delete everything, and start again?

I’m looking forward for the next update to fix the Moon business problems.

They aren’t going to fix the moon. I quit playing this game five or six months ago because they refused to fix the moon… And they still haven’t fixed it.
Earth was designed nicely to get the player into the game, and the moon was designed poorly to get the player to spend kreds. And that is why I quit this game long ago. Just popped back in today out of boredom to see if these guys are still milking the players on a game-site that is supposedly all about free games. And they are.

Topic: Boss Must DIE!! / Hints for new Players (Lichskills/farming)

Yeah, I’ve been with the game for nearly a week now and still haven’t reached the point where I can reset with bonuses. Too many good games out there to waste time with this one.

Topic: Boss Must DIE!! / What is "growth" stat for?

Growth is how much your attack increases after each successful hit, if the enemy is still alive.

Topic: Reactor idle / Complaint: Good game, but I gave it only 1 star because ...

I agree with the original post. No offline gains ruins this game. So you get a few ‘ticks’, whoop-dee-do. They barely do anything for you. I’m not leaving my computer running for a week straight just to get to the next zone.

I, too, rated the game 1/5 for no offline gains. Was rated at 4.24, now it’s rated at 4.23.
If enough people complain and lower the rating of the game, maybe the developer will listen, instead of hoping that everyone will bust out their credit card to purchase ticks.

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Suggestions

1. PvP is tedious. Takes too long to find an opponent and the timer needs drastically reduced.

2. Adventuring needs to be more rewarding. It isn’t worth going through 3 battles for a chance of winning 40-60 gold.

I’m now at level 90 on the campaign map. I don’t see any point in coming back to this game unless 1 or 2 are changed, or until more content is added.

Topic: Holyday City / How can i progress with no more exp managers?

There never will be an ‘end game’ until the player base falls apart. As for now, the game gets a lot of plays everday, so the developer is going to continuously make the game longer, and longer. I’ve played since the game came out, and am nowhere near ‘end game’. If you’re trying to reach ‘end game’ in this game without spending a lot of money, then you’re just spinning your wheels.

Topic: Kongregate / Summer '15 suggestion thread

A way to organize your favorited games would be really nice. I have nearly 60 games favorited, and it’s a pain in the butt sometimes looking for a particular game. Nothings in alphabetical order, nothing is ordered by category, it’s just a big sloppy mess!

Nowhere else to post my suggestion, so I’m posting it here:

I want to be able to organize my favorited games. I have around 60 games favorited, and it’s a pain in the butt looking for particular games. Plus, it just looks sloppy having a big mix of strategy, puzzle and action games all over the place. I want a way to organize my games.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Report a Bug

1. Number text still randomly sticks to the screen in low quality mode.

2. Also, when you are collecting items to pass a stage, sometimes items quit dropping before you meet your quota. This rarely happens though, about as often as you find a jeweled chest :P

I’ve gotten over 30 chests, and not a single one has been jeweled.

If I were you, I would try accruing 28 Quinseptuagintillion personal cash instead of game cash. I think that’d make life a lot more interesting.

Well if experience is supposed to reset when you change worlds, then you need to clarify that.

Level 73 says, “Find yourself some protective headgear.”, but even after finding a helmet and passing the level, nobody gets a new helmet.

Also, all of my experience points are gone. No idea why, but that needs fixed.

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Frequently Asked Questions

Bluji isn’t the developer, and the chest drop frequency isn’t posted in the game. As far as I am concerned, you are supposed to get a chest everytime you defeat a boss no matter how many times you’ve reset. If you defeat a boss and don’t get a reward, that is either a bug, or poor game design.

Bosses rarely ever drop chests after your first reset. This needs fixed. Now.

Topic: Holyday City / Will it ever end?! Courtesy of nerfed managers?

Originally posted by Gotan:

That’s why i adjust my rating to reflect my current gaming experience. If i leave an idle game because it became frustrating in the end i sure won’t leave it at a 5er rating.

Which brings us to the theory of rating inflation. It’s been seen big time on AdCap. Suddenly, a flow of brand new accounts start posting really short comments, with very similar wording. It has begun on this game also.
Check out the comments section. There are 10 real short comments from new accounts since July 24th. No big deal, right? BUT there are only 3 such comments since june 24th. So in less than a week there are 10 suspicious comments, and in the 3 weeks prior to that, there were only 3.
Also, if you scroll the comments before July 16th, you will see that HS responded to comments every single day, and in most cases, 2, 3 or even 4 times a day. As of today, July 29th, HS hasn’t responded to a single comment since July 19th, and less than a week after HS quit responding, we witness a flow of new accounts posting short, positive comments with similar wording.
I first heard this theory of Rating Inflation in the forums of AdCap, and thought that the theory was funny, as in, haha funny. But then I scrolled the comments, and I noticed the trend also. And now I see the same trend taking place with HolyDay Studios. Here is a summary of what is going on:

Dev starts out really active with the community.
Game gets slowed down a lot, and dev dodges questions about the issue.
An update comes a long that doesn’t address the slow game play.
Dev is hardly active or not active at all in the community anymore.
Suddenly, a bunch of new accounts start leaving short, similar comments, all positive.

So in short, what the Rating Inflation Theory says is that the developers of BOTH AdCap AND HoldayCity slow the end game down a whole lot in hopes that people will spend Kreds. They know this will piss off long time players who then lower the rating, so they are using bots to create new Kong accounts that leave really short comments and 5 star the game.

The theory does sound sort of stupid at first, BUT, if you spend a couple minutes scrolling through the comments section, the theory actually makes a lot of sense…

Topic: Holyday City / Could This Game Be Dead?

It seems that HolyDayStudios took the same route HyperHippo took with Adcap. Slowed the game down a whole lot, then all of a sudden a bunch of low level accounts start making short comments.

Has HolyDayStudios turned to fraud, like HyperHippo did? Using a bot to hack Kong comment section, and artificially increase their rating??

You be the judge, but the following examples looks waaaaay to familiar to me:

its good

If you scroll the comment section, then notice that the new accounts leaving short comments starts on July 24th. Notice how most of them use the words ‘addicting’ and ‘great’.
This sort of activity just screams hacking bot!
