Topic: Kongregate / Has KONG becoming WORSE under the years?

Originally posted by RollerCROWster:


Kong went downhill when they started promoting pay2win mmorpg cashgrabs over good games.

Pretty much the main problem, to many p2w games, to much cash grabbing.

Of course Kong is a business, and it’s ok to get content you have to pay for, or get more adds to get more money. The downside of these games are obvious. If they are about competition between players, p2w makes sure there is no real competion from the start. Thats a bad concept for a game, capitalism is getting on my nerve in real life all the time, I don’t want that in my flash games.

So the feeling about Kong is, once it was about games and fun, now it’s about money and greed.

Topic: War of Omens / Word of Unmaking too Powerful

so what? It’s good against card XX, it’s not that great against card YY, sometimes your draw helps you, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s part of the game, use some strategy, change it if you are facing a different opponents. If your opponent has a seduce up, don’t play a kickass ally card, if your opponent has embezel on the field, use your ressources so they can’t be stolen, you know, react to the current game.

Why would one even complain about that?

Topic: War of Omens / WTF is up with blue being so op?

Thats a minor point

Blue is easy to play, and can lead to a fast win. In the long run, they will be weak, just be patient, keep yourself alive and don’t offer blue to many good cards. The updates didn’t do much to change that

Yeah, that’s so not the point…

Topic: War of Omens / Bots

No, that might sound like a clever way to get around this, but in the end “fraudulent activity” is more than enough to get this kind of bot banned.

Sales in mind, a bot that generates free silver fast will not be tolerated by any: “oh someone wouldn’t call this cheating, whatever shall we do” kind of argumentation. It’s just a matter of whether or not they care about such things.

Really feels like Workteam is payed by the devs, really a lot of crap in his Posts.

Like many People said, all the last stuff is just one big “PAY US MORE” sign. Lesser useful stuff with the star rewards, even lesser Cards since it’s 50 stars instead of 25, way lesser free DP. That together with rather hard bosses, you get the scheme, they are less than subtile about it.

I give you my answer: NOT A DIME.

Just look at the high scores, workteam, 383 Objektives completed. I don’t think he can even imagine how hard some of those would have been with just one shuffle, I really had to shuffle a lot at some stars, I still could use just another card from my deck to win and just can’t get it. So it’s less strategy, more luck now, except if you have a very high powered deck, in that case, strategy is not really needed anyway most of the times.

So I don’t think workforce perspective is of any importance, with him looking down on all those other players, not getting the point why this is a problem

Topic: Kongregate Labs / [Dawn of Darkness] Tips for Success

Equipment Grade Frost is level 70, it’s just 10 level since a level takes longer.

Auto combine gem is a great tool, you can control which grade of gems gets fused, and the higher stuff will be stored in you gem spaces, you just have to make sure there are enough free places. The auto combine stopped for me because my storage was full, so there is no need to warn anyone about the auto combine tool

Souls come in different qualitys, green, blue, purple and yellow. higher quality means you can get higher stats. Spending to many vouchers on low level souls might be something you don’t want.

As far as I know, Mount levels only work for your main hero. You get 20 chances a day to upgrade this with silver and you should use them. Untill you get higher level Heros, your main hero is your strongest weapon.

I would comment about the Boosts, the reincarnation and the need to get Reputation, Speed and Cards for Skill levels, but it seems you didn’t mention that.

I really missed a thread like this one when I started the game, and I still would love to get some more information about some topics. Still can’t figure out if I should use Topaz, Jet, Sun or something else. I did get around 50 more power from a jet III lvl 10 than a Topaz III lvl 10, but that still doesn’t answer which one is the better choice.

Free Shuffle

From now on, you can Shuffle your Cards for free but only once per duel.

The most stupid Change I ever seen in my life. If you want to do that, make sure I don’t get the SAME F U C K I N G 3 Cards I had before using Shuffle. Yeah, repair that shit first, then make changes.

OK, calming down now, everything is fine…

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Eradicator Virus Card Problem!!

Yeah, that all happend because of “Balance”, not because the game designer just used FB to design the Events and just didn’t care about the Kong Version. They wanted People to buy energy on the Event they gave MD away, we slipped through that scheme.

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / OP CARDS

Yeah, jinzo is very powerful, the combination of destroying spells and breaking immunity is just great, giving him 3000 attack is great too. So you get spell and immunity defense with great attack power, all in one card. He is very powerful. He just grants you 500 Life, the only downside of this card.

I don’t know if you can call it OP, he doesn’t win on his own, he can still die rather fast, shared fate, sneak, explosion and stuff. You need cards like Jinzo to defend youself against spells, you will need cards to defend yourself against Jinzo.

To metalklok, you are a rude person and shouldn’t just shout shut up to a person with a different opinion. Unless you are 5 years old, in that case, everything is fine I guess.

Yeah, Devs should check if we even have 80k players, at the moment, 40.365 people are online on Kongregate, just check how many people are online on FB at the moment. (I know it’s not a very good comparision, but it’s a hint)

Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / 2.2 Challenge

There was no energy problem, I had 17 hours left at start, and I did it without spending DP on energy. I don’t have a great deck either, no Jinzo, no vampire genesis non of that fancy schmancy stuff at all.

The last row is 270 energy, I needed much more, needed more trys for the last two duels.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Did they really make sanc stronger???

To make Sanc balanced it Needs to Change to one round AND have a higher countdown, 3 at least. At the Moment this Card is everywhere, used to rush in Equalizer, used to get around game mechanics in Boss fights and it’s far to effective in PvP.

Of course nothing will Change since the game designer want to Count their Money in peace…so don’t bother

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Auction House Snipers

“Instead of the auctioned item going to the player who would pay more for it, it ends up going to the player who is sneaky enough to bid closest to the end of the auction”

You don’t know that, the Player who is “sneaky” doesn’t know the end of the auction and might be willing to pay more than you in the end. You shouldn’t be so careless, that would help you not getting “sniped”.

Topic: Card Monsters / - When is new exp come?

Ok, I don’t know if you are aware of this, but this is edgebee

All their games are rather enjoyable at the beginning, really good stuff. After you have been sucked into the game, you realize it’s getting harder to continue, progress means a lot of grinding, and your next goal is so far away, it’s just frustrating, but you want to get there, so they give you the pay to win option.

I experienced this with Socery Quest, it made me back out of critter forge as soon as I spotted the edgebee logo, and it was a thing in S&P, but I manged to upgrade my shop without the use of any money to 100% (minus the cash only pets). You can play these games without spending money, but it will be around ten times harder to get anywhere.

Edgebee is rather greedy, they don’t build their games to last, they build them for the quick bug, prices for CM are insane, and they still have the beta sign, seriously, 25-50$ for one epic card LEVEL 1 (and yeah, some discount buying tokens yadda yadda yadda). So they already have a winning formula, it’s fresh game, frustrate players untill they pay, get a new game. Just enjoy this one while it lasts.

This posting might get deleted, it’s edgbee unfriendly, but I really won’t hold back my opinion about them, I don’t even mind them doing it, I just don’t pay them anything
