There are many posts by the administrators that state what you suggested would be a problem.

Here is one of the many posts:

How do you usually pick the people who get the test updates and who don’t? I haven’t gotten any of the test updates at all (new layout, this one, can’t remember if there were others) but I’d like to get them in the future.

It’s totally, entirely random (except for admins. We get the new stuff to make sure it works.)

Kongregate could also more objectively see who is using the update. There are people in this thread both attacking and defending the new theme. Why can’t we please them all?

Because we really can’t please them all :( We’d never be able to make everyone happy no matter what we did. Every change we’ve ever made has upset some people and pleased others, it’s the way change works unfortunately.

There are a few issues with allowing an “old profile/new profile/nav 1/nav 2/old chat/old homepage/old old homepage/less red/lol cat” toggle. The first is that we’d then have to do a million times more work to create anything new. Anytime we make a new feature we’d have to figure out how to make it fit in with each and every variation there is. There are things on this new profile that aren’t on the old profile, stuff on the new homepage that isn’t on the old homepage—it’s not just changing the color, we’re also changing functionality. It’s impossible to keep developing new features if there are hundreds of site permutations out there.

Beyond the designing of how new features would fit, we’d end up needing to support all these different variations of the site, meaning we’d end up spending tons of time testing and fixing bugs for people that are using nav variation 3 and new homepage and old profile and new hoverprofiles and it would be fairly impossible to make forward progress :/

Lastly, it would kill our site performance. Right now we have code running for both profiles, but that’s not optimal and once the split test ends, we’ll be removing all the stuff we’re not using anymore. If we had to keep all the old code to support all the old features as well as the new ones we’d need way more hardware to support it (which means really increasing our costs) and it would still take you a huge amount of time to load a page. We’d additionally have to add way MORE code to try and make everything play nice together.

I get why you’d want options, totally get it. I use the internet too and have raged about updates I thought were dumb. It’s just totally impossible for us to do, from a practicality standpoint. We’ll continue to do our very best to come out with new updates that people like and we’re always changing things to try and make features MORE successful, but that’s pretty much the best we can do, sorry.

If your giving the player a choice of A or A then,
YOUR DOING IT WRONG!

like what LordDignity said.
at least give a choice of using a UI that isn’t just 600 drop down boxes.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

needs better ways to find ACTUALLY GOOD NEW GAMES. whenever I search most popular or top rated the first 3 pages are card games and gimmicky tower defenses and games THAT AREN’T EVEN ON KONGERGATE! and the rest of the pages are pay-2-win shooters with way too many hackers and lag. needs another category or better more relevant results.

Topic: Technical Support / All the button labels are broken

all the buttons work when you click them, but some are invisible or are a blank box. the rating and favorite buttons are invisible. I am a big time kong fan and i memorized most of them. the thing at the top that says kongregate is gone, probably msot important next to rating system and drop down menu.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Battalion: Arena] What's the deal with "Reason 2"?

Some people have a recurring problem connecting to the server. There are typically three reasons this occur. Unfortunately, two of these reasons are indistinguishable, so if you can’t connect you’ll typically be told that it’s either Reason 1 or Reason 2.

Reason 1 means the server is down. The only time you should see this is if we’ve taken the server down for maintenance reasons or to update it somehow, like to fix a bug, or roll out a new feature.

Reason 2 means the server is up, but that it couldn’t create a connection with your client. In the vast majority of cases, if you see Reason 2, it is because you have a firewall installed. Firewalls are great, but they make it very difficult to create multiplayer connections. Battalion uses a bunch of sophisticated protocols to get around firewalls, but the process is somewhat brittle and we are limited by the bounds of the technology that accomplishes this your lazyness.

If you are getting repeated Reason 2 connection problems, the best thing for you to do is wait. If you try to keep reconnecting before the server can successfully get around your firewall our server , it resets the process and basically makes it impossible for you to reconnect as long as you keep retrying.

How long should you wait to reconnect? That part is tricky. The firewall technology can’t consistently create a timeout window, so I recommend you give it at least 2 0 minutes before you retry.

Another fix is to modify your firewall so that it will let you play multiplayer games. way ahead of you. :D If you don’t know what a firewall is, or how it was installed, then this probably isn’t an option for you, but you could talk to the person in charge of administering your machine. The port that Battalion connects on is 9898 in that case, and if a connection can be established with port 9898, then there is no need to see Reason 2 ever again.

I’ll do my best to answer any questions on this topic, but given the plethora of firewall configurations, hardware and software that couldNOT cause these issues, I probably cannot be much help. My suggestion will always be to leave it for as long as you can (20 minutes at least) and come back later. Chances are that is all it needs to reset and make a new connection.

So here is the attempt to improve.
New suggestion to recap many others.
Place an actual % chance on each item on the wheel.

Reduce the rate of kreds to gold. People have demonstrated they will put money into the game. Considering there is probably a .01% chance of getting a usable item off the wheel for those that spend move the exchange rate to 100 kreds for 500 gold. This does two things. Even if people do not feel they had a chance it maybe a reasonable expense for them. Those that may have spent thier $5 allowance may actually spend it now. Ruin the economy… there is not one.

The reality of the “refund”

Its was not 6 cents or what have you. It was a simple programing change, that will yield in little actual result. Giving a gift that does not work is not really a gift. Now that you gave me the idea though I think I will give my broken tools to others this Christmas and tell them they should be happy the received anything.

Cheers

summary: F*** you COG. we don’t want your bullsh**.

Topic: Kongregate / can i get free kreds?

all the free kred opportunities are BS. most of them don’t even work. they just say “come back tomorrow.” others require a bunch of crap like credit card numbers. i don’t even have a credit card! and the few that are left are just plain crap.
