100% here for the badges only, then getting away from it. So boring…

There are over 2600 kongregate badges and you only have a third of that amount. If you don’t like it, just don’t play it? Quit badge hogging on games you’re not interested in.

Topic: Time World / Hero Spirits

A suggestion is that you add up a system in which it automatically does everything until told to stop up to either your creds limit or a designated tier (example, if it gets to purple, stop the auto generate).

Also, auto add blues pls

Did the devs pay Kong to advertise this “haven’t been updated in 2 years” pay-to-win on the front page?

It got updated 2 days ago. What’s the planet you live in to have 24 earth hours years?

Topic: Time World / Treasure hunting thread.

It’s doable with the red line considering that you can “jump” over visited blocks actually, I got the gem several times with lots of people being the “fuckin douchebag” :p Still, not a reason to do it as it miiiiight be bad. Specially if someone gets stuck.

That aside, just wanted to add some information here.

Grid = 15×15 = 225.
50% = 112,5 = 113 clicks to get Gem.

How many clicks per player average to get the gem:
Solo: 1×113
Duo: 1×56 / 1×57
Trio: 2×37 / 1×38
Quad: 4×28 / 1×29
Quint: 4×22 / 1×23
Full house: 1×18 / 4×19*

If you hit <18 – Try to get a good team. Don’t feel bad if people prefer to do with with other people.
If you hit 18-25 – You’re doing decently fine. But if you can somehow improve (lower quality, faster clicking), try to!
If you hit 25-31 – You’re doing excellent and can even do it in a lower group (4-5 men). No real need to improve further.
If you hit >32 – Your connection, ping and clicking speed are awesome.

NOTE: Doesn’t mean you should just stop after getting your meta. Do your best. Someone might AFK/dc/lag out/missclick/run out of detectors.

Also, coupon prizes for each tile:
100 coupons – Flat soil
1000 coupons – Rocky soil
2000 coupons – Puddles

*Edit: Thanks to bkb24 for saving us from losing gem due to 4 tiles :P

Trade back from Purple Crystal to Blue >__<… I swear its harder to obtain blue than purple…

Boost the XP from PVP or Battle… The number of Hero partaking in PVP/Battle are limited, well more limited… So the XP should be increase just sayin.

May I add, not only purple to blue, but also blue to green, green to white… It’d help.

Playmage DOES NOT READ REPORTS AND PRIVATE MESSAGES. Is it clear now? If people do not complain in threads then Playmage DOES NOTHING, only openly visible pressure succeeded and even that just barely reaches him after a long time because he is so careless and only fears new players will learn how badly he treats his playerbase, or in other words he only cares for his wallet and new players not staying with the game to generate him profit.


Are you sure it was the whining and ranting on the forums that worked or did that just coincide with whatever actions they took?

Are YOU sure that it is possible to rationalize with Paymage?

If you’ve played this before, then you likely remember just how annoyingly hard it is to communicate Paymage. Over time, we learned how to deal to deal with him, sadly it does involve shock treatment. I did react bad at first, but I guess we can’t just let them play as they see fit, eh? The accusations turned out to be, quite literally, admitted, and nothing was done, with people literally yelling at him from all sides. Imagine if we were just quietly reporting and PMing.

Well, derails are common indeed, but then again, topics made to talk about cheaters ending in talk about cheatears is not derailing.

Ironically, derailed threads with lots of useless banter are never locked, wheareas complaints are… Leads me to believe Candy isn’t here on free will, but checking on due to some p-l-ayers’ request. Sorry, I might be wrong, Nikhil, but you did pick some horrible timing…

Well, in fact, it IS his business, but then again, if they implemented a system to avoid leaving inside matters with outsiders, it’s only logical that he is not supposed to complain.

Specially because there’s someone obviously breaking the rules, as well as few others that he accused, not getting punished after dozens of private messages and reports. Yet, the developer doesn’t do anything. It makes it look like Kongregate is rooting for the cheaters here. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised that it was one of the cheaters that asked Candy to come by and read. :I

What the heck, Nikhil? c.c

You at kongregate made the room moderator system to avoid people not familiar with a community having to deal with it’s problems and possibly mess up…

Have you even PLAYED Time World to see why are people complaining on forums? If you did, you’d know why do they call out in forums… The developer never comes up with a solution unless everyone pressures him. Reporting never worked, let alone PMing.

I know that. What I said was that it’s much more effective to wait for an in game promotion than a kong promotion, seeing that kong promotion bonuses aren’t normally as cost effective.

Still, back on topic, will I just have to wait for this promo to end for me to get rid of the ads? ._.

You could compound the promotions for even greater savings, though. This promotion gives you extra Kreds, and then the in-game promotions give you extra premium currency for the Kreds, so if you find yourself frequently using Kreds, then picking up extra ones right now will help you later on when you want to use them for an in-game sale.

And yes, you’ll need to wait until the event is over for the ads to go away. You can use something like the Challenge Notification Remover script to remove the ads from the chat, if you’d like.

Chat ads are the least of my worries… Mainly because the link’s area is much smaller, resulting in it being hard to accidentally click, which I’ve done several times with the ads right next to the game’s name.

We really wanted to make sure that people didn’t miss out on this sale and even made sure it worked internationally. We know kong+ hides ads, but this is more of a site notice than a true ad as it is all internal and not selling you Axe body spray or Mountain Dew or telling you to not smoke cigarettes.

This is like the first kreds sale in the history of ever and we really wanted to make sure no one missed it if they were interested, because, c’mon, who doesn’t like a sale?

Then make it exclusive to the chatbox or give us a way to turn it off? You get to show your promotions, and I get my navigation 0% disrupted. Having to refresh every now and then hoping it won’t show up again does kinda annoys me :p

It’s much better to wait for a promotion on whatever game I want to burn my kreds on then use a kong promo, anyway… >_>

You can use it on Kong and take advantage of the promotion from anywhere in the world.

The funny thing is though, Kong is kinda blowing the real high rollers off since it seems impossible to buy $250 worth of kreds with a gamestop card, thus people doing that need to buy the $100 versions, thus for every $250 puchased, they lose out on 50 free extra kreds, $5 worth. There did not seem to be any problem buying a gamestop card $250 worth, so that can’t be the reason.

Eh, just checked, indeed, I was wrong. I can buy using the digital cards. Still, the ad sure is annoying, specially when I paid not to get these >.>

I can confirm this. I also normally don’t see any ads, but it seems Kong is specifically letting these 2x Bonus Kred ads though starting yesterday (and I have both the Moderator K+ and the regular K+… so both are letting it through).

Normally, I would not mind ads that give me free kreds, but this one really isn’t worth it unless you buy alot of kreds at once. In any case, it pops up in the chat window, so there really isn’t a reason to also show it above the game too.

I expect that they did this because they got feedback from K+ users that they were upset about missing some free kred promotion that was shared through the ad space. However, like I said, you are putting it in the chat window too, and that should be enough.

-Pip

^ This puts it perfectly. But in addition to only being useful to people who buy a lot of kreds at once, it only works in locations with GemStop stores. So it’s literally taking up useless space in any non-american player’s screen :|
