Didn’t try it, because MOBAs suck.

Specifically what about MOBAs makes them suck? (I already know the answer to that, but I’d like to hear your answer) Because Heroes of the Storm tries pretty hard to take most of the suck out of the genre.

Also, ITT: Too many cats.

Does Blizzard pay you by the letter or by the sentence?

They pay me with a game that is thoroughly fun and enjoyable.

Bumping this thread because the game is now in open beta, so anyone can download it and start playing!

If you need further convincing to check it out, Gametrailer.com did a good ~5 minutes video explaining what makes Heroes different from other MOBAs, and why it’s good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRVWG51X6SI

Topic: General Gaming / Non money grab games similar to Clash of Clans

No need to derail, or bump.

Sadly, most games of that genre are pay2win, simply because that was what the design structure was built for (mobile/ftpmmo revenue). I could list dozens of city building games, but none would fall under no energy system.

That’s real disappointing. If someone figured out how to make a decent game like that where you could only buy cosmetics I think it’d be a real hit.

There’s a cyclical problem these games have to deal with. If a game is good, but doesn’t offer enough incentive for players to spend cash on the game (People are only willing to spend so much on cosmetics, compared to things that actually grant them benefits in game), the game will gain a user-base faster than it is able to generate the money to properly support the game and it’s user-base.

Realm of the Mad god is a some-what decent example, in that the original monetization philosophy was focused on making sure players couldn’t “buy their way to power”. Poor revenue and lack of interest in maintaining the game caused the original owners of the game to sell it. The new owners then implemented heavy P2W, and the player-base has suffered accordingly.

Bump

Why did you bump a post that was posted 15 minutes prior to your bump?

There is an alarming amount of salt in this post. I wouldn’t eat it.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle games,What i think.

Care for an attempt at an actual discussion? Why are the idle games shitty? What would make them less shitty?

Posting a vague criticism does very little to improve the situation.

Wrong answer given.

Whats the right answer then?

The original question was asking for a way that involved not paying anything, so telling him to do things that involve getting money and then buying it, doesn’t exactly fit the criteria.

As far as I know, besides what FlyingCat said, the only other way to get K+ completely free, is by becoming a mod.

Topic: General Gaming / Come play Vorp! before its shut down!

Originally posted by legendarypb2:

What is Vorp? T_T

Vorp! was a Unity game that was hosted on Kong. It was a little MOBA with spaceships. It was actually a pretty fun and solid game, the fact that it was taken down after such a short run made me kinda sad. I think the game had good potential, it just didn’t get the attention it deserved.

Topic: Kongregate / Selling out?

I’d say a sensible business wouldn’t milk their whales dry.

In the case of Kong, I’d say they just bought the milking machines, left them unattended except for the occasional visit from the maintenance-worker, and the cows/whales/whatever hook themselves up as they please.

Point is, Kong isn’t forcing anyone to spend anything. People spend of their own volition, and usually people with disposable income aren’t complete morons.

Part of the reason we’re able to have so many free games, is because some people out there are actually willing to pay for them, unlike the majority of players now-a-days who want everything for nothing.

Topic: Kongregate / Selling out?

Obligatory: Oh, it’s this thread again…

If you’re going to blame anyone, blame the game developers for making games and trying to make a reasonable amount of money from them. It’s not like Kong is making these games, they just promote them to entice people to play them.

And if “The way of the future” means “People can play many games without having to pay first, then decide later if they want to pay to gain the other features/bonuses/ect…” then yes it is, and it’s been that way for years. Micro-transactions are a good business model, if they weren’t, you wouldn’t see it so often.

Topic: Kongregate / Seriously, Kongregate?

As far as I know, you get that same “we’ve taken action” message regardless of how much action was taken. It’s very likely that that user was actually banned.

Standard protocol is to ban users who post direct links to material like you described. If there was a different outcome, then there’s probably more to the story.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / How Do I Make Money?

There isn’t really any money in this game. You could be talking about 1 of 2 things.

Gold: The premium currency, is only obtainable as a real-money purchase via Kreds.

Stat potions: The main trade currency in the game essentially acting as money. Stat potions are found by killing gods in godlands or from dungeon bosses.

I recall the chat back when it had 200 people. Throughout the years, it devastated me how the numbers fell constantly, until there were about 60 left, with practically no one speaking. Eventually I left as well.

This is actually due to a change a while back to how rooms are populated.

Before, users were placed into chat the moment they loaded a game, regardless of if they clicked on the “chat” tab. Now, users are only placed in chat if they’ve clicked on the “chat” tab.

The way it was before caused chat to have inflated user counts; now, it’s a more accurate and relevant number since it won’t show people who aren’t actually in chat.

Will you guys take action if we reach the necessary amount of supporters which is a 100.

Please have mods or admins reply to this question.

I’m a mod, so I can reply to this question!

I don’t know, and neither do any of the other mods, but the most likely answer is “Probably not”.

Swagbucks free offer for 200 kreds.

At first, I was deterred by a name like “swagbucks”, but a friend of mine did the offer and said everything was fine, so I did the offer myself and can confirm it’s a very good offer.

If you go on the kreds page and click “Buy kreds”, one of the options on there is “Earn free kreds”. Some of the offers don’t work well, but for the most part, you can earn a reasonable amount of kreds with those offers.

Regarding the question in the OP, I agree that wizard is the most reliable back-up class, followed by knight or rogue if you know how to use them. Max def, spd, att, and dex on it at least, then pick whatever class you want to try out.

has he even responded back yet saying he has to cancel some numbers out?

I posted the “taken numbers list” as a courtesy. It takes time to update it… time I really don’t feel like taking. If people post a number that was taken or is unavailable, that’s their problem at this point.

I was gone for 2 weeks because of work, and I just got back home yesterday. I ran two more Cdephts since then, still nothing.

http://kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/36273-how-to-report-terrible-ads-so-we-can-actually-fix-them

Kong doesn’t have much to do with the ads. AFAIK they use services like google AdSense, which generates ads based on things like the users search history.

I’m surprised I haven’t posted this here yet. It’s the epitome of embarrassing yet fortunate, since I did win a contest because of this death.

I looked away for like, one second, and it was all over.

I even lost my beloved paladin a week-and-a-half later to a botched abyss rush.

I was driving through Texas and stopped at a diner. There was a good looking apple pie sitting in the display case as I waiting to be seated. Almost at the end of my meal the server asked would you like some dessert I said no. Then 10 minutes later I changed my mind and asked her if I could get a slice of that pie. She said sorry it’s been sold. I still tear up thinking about that pie and what could have been.

A pie that is trying too hard to look good is trying to mask something dark and sinister. It was evil, and you resisted the succubus. Few can say the same.

Topic: Kongregate / [Vote] Kongregate Classic Games!

1. Anti-idle: The Game. It’s been around for as long as I can remember, and has been consistently updated with quality content. I’d argue that it’s the best game Kong has; also, it’s exclusive to Kong, which I personally consider a major point, since we are talking about “Kong classics” here.

2. Platform Racing 2. While I don’t particularly care much for the game, I think it’s the definitive game in terms of utilizing user-created content. Sandbox Hero tried to emulate it and failed, so I think the fact that PR succeeded and is still some-what relevant, says a lot.

3. Dolphin Olympics 2. I get a strong “Tony Hawks Pro Skater” vibe from this game. Which is a good thing, because THPS is awesome. Both games play in very quick sessions, so there’s no need to invest a lot of time into it, and it still gives players that “Okay, just one more try” feeling after each round.
