Topic: Backyard Monsters / We've Been Updated Yay!

Man, whats with this. I estimate 7 and now everyone’s saying it’s definitely going to be out by 7 >.<. I’m starting to think that keeping you guys updated is a bad idea if it’s going to lead to disappointment and such.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai combos.

The problem with some of these combos is that you think that dodge works for everything.

“Tefari—- Elusive Feather—you get my point, you hide…
+30% dodge and plus elusive feather, 55% dodge! You hardly
will get hit and you got ambush unlocked.”

Tafari without poison is like a crippled tafari. Poison boosts his damage by like 35%, which is sorely needed due to his crappy damage. Any non-physical damage rapes him too.

“Aishi—- Reinforced Breastplate— Seriously, it’s better than healing salve
or herbal remedy. 8 damage would be taken off opponents attacks. And 8
damage is a lot.”

8 damage? Breastplate only gives +4 armor. The only time that it would reduce damage by 8 or more is if Ashi is hit by multiplicative physical attacks (Rumiko, VV, Onimaru). On the other hand, remedy heals for 3 hp every turn, regardless of the circumstances. Remedy is just superior than breastplate at the moment due to how its good all the time, whereas breastplate is worthless if your opponent doesn’t use physical attacks or is stalling you.

“Higashi—-MindReader’s Chalice— All it would take is some serious thinking
of what the enemy will do. Scare him, make him think you’ll use Chi
Blast but u intercept with 75 damage (plus his innate 60 intercept dmg).”

This one is debatable, but I dislike this combo. Most of the time, Higashi intercepts when he can threaten with Chi blast. If he threatens with chi blast, he has 80 energy +, which means that the “gain full energy” feature of the chalice is completely wasted. Besides, a 60 damage intercept is more than enough. Chalice would only be effective if the enemy has more than 60 hp (since intercept kills at 60damage -), and since you’re in a chi blast/intercept situation, most of the time they’ll have taken some hits, rendering it useless in most cases.

TLDR version: These combos aren’t very good.

Topic: General Gaming / Guitar Hero: World Tour

The song creation thing seems kinda overrated imo. It’s actually pretty hard to make a good song (since you need a drum, guitar, and bassline parts), and most people will either make some stupidly hard dragonforce type song, or just not use it. There’s really no real need to have it in there, especially since there is no vocals in the song creation thing.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] I have a dream- A Kongai dream!

I think EsIeX3 made one already, located Here . You should ask him if he needs help. There is no backstory for characters, although some people have made some fan based ones.

Topic: General Gaming / sratcraft or warcraft?

It really depends. If you don’t have friends to play starcraft with, it sux because its online community is basically all koreans, even on U.S. West. Warcraft, on the other hand, has a still decent online community. I’ve played both, and I prefer warcraft just because starcraft is a lot harder and crazier.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai - thoughts & impressions

Kongai isn’t supposed to be a grindy type game. The whole point of the current distribution of cards is so that a completely new player can have as good of a deck as a veteran can. This is done to promote skill, rather than time invested. To reward power based on time played would be horrible. And there is a difference between you and some newbie. A newbie only has that one deck to play. You, on the other hand, can make almost all possible deck combinations, giving you far more versatility in deck choice.

If you’re having trouble finding games, go play ranked. You can’t get get kicked there.

Yeah, I’m not sure if they programmed the new set in either.

Topic: Kongregate / A Pirate Conspiracy!

So for some weird reason, Greg changes the “Underdog Week” to “Buried Treasure Week”. Buried Treasure = Pirates, and Pirates are Kongai’s next expansion!

Mere coincidence, or a elaborate ploy to unveil the new cards?

Juju is gonna be pro next patch :D
Is Tafari still hated? He’s really not that bad…
Helene should go under the undervalued category imo.

Ubie is overused in higher levels of play >.>

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai Quickmatch - Get rid of stats

I’ll have to disagree about the 5 card promoting more deck diversity comment, with the reason being AoE attacks. AoE attacks are a lot more powerful in 5 card than they are in 3 card games. I haven’t played 5 card at all, but I think it’s safe to assume that Zina/VV are staples in that format (Amaya as well after next patch), so “diversity” really means Zina/Amaya/VV/Finisher/Random.

edit in response to the post below – Zina has not been not released yet, so when everyone gets their hands on her, you’ll see that deck far more often.

Sounds like a plan. More people would probably play ranked if this were to happen.

Right, Yoshiro was never meant to be good 1v1 (funny how I saw a lot of Yoshiro leads when it first came out). His job is to pew pew rising dragon low hp people, and he’s pretty damn good at it.

Haha Tardis, I think your strategy was what the game creators intended you to do, except to use infect instead of debuff. Infect works on all 3 difficulties I think.

@ghalion the whole point of power lash is that you should never be hit by it. If you are, you’re playing against Phoebe wrong. Corns pb I’ll agree with, but it’s getting nerfed to not OHKO most people, so meh.

@lierutian Which moves are you talking about? The ones I can think of (Tafari’s poison dart, Voss’s double slash, Ashi’s bleeding slice) can all be countered in one way or another.

Topic: General Gaming / protector 2 walkthrough

The funny thing is, that was my old version where I tell people to go do a level that isn’t even unlocked at that point of the game xD Go check the comments to see what I mean. Since they “credit” me with such a small text in such an obscure location, I just hope that the errors and incompleteness of that particular version of the walkthrough is blamed on them rather than me :)

Topic: General Gaming / Protector 2 Shipyard level

http://cocak.blogspot.com/2008/07/protector-reclaiming-throne.html shows my strategy for it, which is a little bit more concise than the other walkthrough (which was posted in my comments, and works equally well). There are 6 sweet spots that you fill warriors with initial on the bottom half of the screen, then you just try to get warriors in places where they can still earn exp.
