Another match idea to shake things up a bit for friendly PVP action: FACTION MATCH!

FACTION MATCH will work best as a private match.

Factions are the different coloured AI opponents you fight in campaign, Red, Orange, Green, Purple and Yellow.


  • Both players will agree to use only the items of a particular faction. A match could be RED vs. GREEN, or ORANGE vs. YELLOW, or RED vs. RED, or whatever the players choose to use.
  • Each player is limited to use only the items that the faction of their choosing would use.


  • Some factions use particular Round Techs. Only use round techs used by that particular faction—for example, no faction uses plasma mastery, fusion, or EMP rounds. Round Techs are not mandatory—as early level factions do not use Round Tech—but specific round techs will only available to the particular faction that uses it in campaign.
  • Base canons and base shield are only used by bosses. (It may make sense to have both players use these two boss techs, or neither player use these boss techs—-but that would be up to the player’s discretion.)
  • Players should fill in remaining tech slots with techs that will best compliment their faction and give them the best chance of winning.

NOTE: Only the Alien Race uses the Repair Organ tech. It is recommended that this tech be avoided, to minimize length of matches.

  • No faction gets both miners and reactors.
  • Each faction uses only one type of Capital ship.
  • Do not launch ships or use turrets or auxiliaries that your faction does not use.

With so many battles coming down to the use of the most powerful ships, many ships go collecting dust in player Armories. Why not created an alternate list of these ships for play in pvp or private matches?

Here is my suggestion for the underused, the rejected, and the wimpy, to make for a different play dynamic.

Try a playing a match where players agree not to use ships and items that do not appear on this list:

The “Wimpy/Underused” Game Match allowed items list:

FIGHTERS: Piranha, Mantis, Knight, Engineer, Mosquito.

MED: Puma, Falcon, Minotaur, Myrmidon, Pandemic, Athena.

CAPS: Mastodon, Plasma Halo.

TURRETS: Blaster, Double Blaster, Autogun, micromissile, Edgeslasher, plasmacaster, autocaster.

AUXILIARIES: Tactical Shield, Barricade, Cloak Field, Processor.

TECHS: Flash Charge, Expansion, Mining Beams, Armour Plating, Repair Organ, Freeze/Acid Boost, Canon Mod.

  • (Reactors and Extractors would be allowed for metal and energy.)

What do you think? Should something be on the that I missed? Should anything be removed?

Acid rounds Damage Over Time should not be negated by repair turrets. I think this is the reason why Acid is useless. Let the repair turrets repair the damage, but not negate the D.O.T. effect and Acid becomes viable.

To prevent Acid from becoming too overpowered, it might be necessary to re-balance the shots so that D.O.T. no longer stacks up or something. I’m not sure. As it is, Acid is far too easy to defend against, thus neutering a potentially interesting game mechanic and strategy.

Got things working. Posting a solution in case anyone else runs into this.

I uninstalled and reinstalled unity and restarted my machine (I guess it had been a while) and unity works fine now.

Kinda wish bomber’s freeze actually just slowed you down a bunch instead of stun. Shocker does stun already.

Topic: Dragons and Titans / Suggestions and Ideas

Game balance is off. The last few games I played the match was basically won or lost depending on which team had the most laser-horn and sunbeam breath dragons.

Also, controls are… weird. But maybe that’s just me.

I saw user Notch50two placing mines like he had unlimited ammo while playing tech in a KOTH match. There were about 20 mines on the capture zone in the shuttle at one point. Didn’t get a screen shot though.

I frequently get the blackscreen too. Sometimes I have to refresh 4 or 5 times before it loads properly. Also, the frequent disconnects are annoying.

I’ve saved up about 1500 flux and am considering getting the Prophecy, the DMAT-90, or saving up a bit more and the Spy-1. Which is the better ship? (Or should I just buy the Scartrow? I’m level 36 and flying the default ship still.

I hit the “Reset Army Rank” on my #2 army and am now no longer to connect to multiplayer with it. I just get the “finding battle” animation spinning endlessly. My other armies are unaffected by this.

Topic: BattleCry / Bugs

The same thing happened to me. I logged on earlier and it was someone else’s account that showed. I logged in again (just now) and I see my armies again. This is probably something that the devs should be aware of if accounts are getting mixed up on the server. Especially if someone is paying real $/kreds to have better armies.

Okay, I figured out the Unknightly Challenge level. The shields that the undead knights use give them +10 resistance to all magic. Use brute force to kill them quickly.

I got locked out of the FB account I was using when I switched VPN servers. FB didn’t know what to do with an unreccognized IP address. (I live in China so I need a VPN to even log in.) Now FB security wants me to identify my contacts. The problem is, I don’t know what any Vorp/D&T players look like.

Oh well, I’ll try guessing again in a few days.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] Dear VORP! fans...

ENDgames is not dead, they’ve just moved on to other projects to pay the bills.

VORP (imo) is an extremely well made game. However ENDgames had some challenges trying to figure out what to do with it. IIRC, they attempted a facebook launch that didn’t do so well. Eventually the game made its way to Kong where we are now.

In spite of how well made the Vorp is, ENDgames hasn’t made much money from it. (There was an older post on the forum estimating that at best, they were making a couple hundred a month from Vorp.) The issue is that ENDgames are not as good at marketing and promoting this game as they were a building it. They can’t have someone come on promote this game without money, it won’t generate more money if they don’t.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Vorp!] Crashing and Lags

The last while I’ve been having more rotten luck getting and maintaining a decent connection to the server. A lot of this is probably due to my internet being filtered through the GFW <—-this article is actually blocked for me, so I hope it’s the right one! Sometimes I try to play with a VPN, but while the connection is sometimes more consistent, so can be the lag. Here’s some description of some of the bugs that I come across playing Vorp. For reference, I use OSX 10.8, either Chrome or Firefox. My Unity Web Player is up to date.

Still Loading…

Just jumped on, things load pretty quickly, you hit “play now” and are into a game lobby within a minute or two. Good timing, right? The game time counts down and you get ready to… wait? Loading: 65%? …66%? …67% …Meanwhile your team has begun the game, and they’re a man down. You hope no other crashes happen. (One of my pet peeves about this issue is that the [Loading] box covers over the [Options] button so I can’t double check my settings to make sure full screen is set to “off” in hopes of avoiding the full screen freeze unity crash.)
Remedy: start a single player practice game to let the game load before joining a team match.

Full screen unity crash

Sometime when the game goes full screen, it gets frozen white. Clicking the mouse can get a cursor, but no other controls seem to respond. Unity has taken control of the monitor, and it isn’t letting go. I have yet to be able to switch to other programs or successfully close the browser. You can hear sounds, and wiggle your mouse. You might even be able to hear your weapons firing when you push keys, but nothing is going to give you back your screen.Occasionally when this happens, the screen is black.
Remedy: The only solution I’ve found is to reboot my system.

Spawn Fail

Just when the game begins, you are pleased that no other crash has happened. The timer is counting seconds, you can hear missiles firing in a battle, but your view is frozen on the middle of the map and your ship still hasn’t appeared.
Remedy: Waiting. Possibly quit to menu and attempt to rejoin your match. Good luck catching up.

Zig Zag Lag

The map will scroll smoothly as you move about, but objects, projectiles, ships, drones etc. jitter or shake on the screen. Since basically everything that moves leaves a trail, the trail is shaken all over the screen.
Remedy: Sometimes this can be fixed by quitting to menu and refreshing the browser.

Surprise! Lost Connection

Latency is a little higher than ideal maybe around 300, but the game seems fine. You’re cruising around blasting drones and attacking turrets/ships and suddenly you’re back in the menu.
Remedy: wait for a connection to be reestablished with the server?


You just suffered a “Surprise Lost Connection” on the way back to depot. No biggie, it hasn’t even been 30 seconds before the connection seems to be back and the [Live Match] option comes back. Then your screen goes white and it’s time to reboot. Good luck catching up now.
Remedy: T_T

. . .

Have you seen any of these issues? Had a problem of your own? Have a solution?

(Edit: In spite of this trouble, I keep coming back. Must be an addiction or something.)
