Tyrant isn’t a game. The program does EVERYTHING for the “player”.

As many of you have already figured out, this is indeed a prank. We will not be charging you to let Kongbot play idle games for you, but we do hope you enjoyed sampling his services today. Happy April Fool’s Day, everyone. I wish you an excellent month, or at least one that doesn’t totally suck. :D

Great!

They got me. I came here to say WTF about

“…we realized that the main bottleneck with enjoying Kongregate as a website is having to actually play the games themselves.”

Well done.

Topic: Sands of the Coliseum / Hackers

The best way to stop hackers is for the dev to update the game more often.

JUL 3, 2012 10:09AM was the last update…

A tool like a “Fleet Manager” is welcome.
It can be an openable window (like ‘alliance chat’ and ‘notepad’).
A place where you will be able to see status of all your fleets in all your systems – defending, gathering, attacking, moving to…, returning from… And issuing commands to them (sort of a command center)

Empire Overview > Fleets

A few requests/suggestions…

1. I would like to see a list of all my ships, where they are and what they are doing. Currently it’s very hard to keep track of all your ships especially if you have a lot of fleets all over the place. The small green “ship” icons are hard to see. My solution to this would be that you could de-select the system you’re looking at. Like on the planet-view, if you click the background, you could click the background of the starmap and without having a planet selected, it would instead show you a list of your ships on the right side of the screen.

2. Continuing from 1, if a ship is traveling to another system, you can only see that by clicking on the destination system. How about lines between the solar systems that shows where your fleets are heading? Perhaps with arrows for direction.

3. I would like to see my own systems more clearly. Like the ship icon, the green arrow thingy is very small and hard to see. And like the ship icon, this is something that should be easily recognizable, just by glancing in the general direction of the starmap, not something you should have to search for every single time. If nothing else, please at least make them a bit bigger.

Thank you.

1) Empire Overview > Fleets

2) Volo said: something like this might make it into the next patch.

3) Volo said: much later, they are changing the look of the game.

Late Start Systems. To help people that start 1+ month(s) after the server has started. I believe they should get a better starting system.

People starting after the server has been live for 1 month could get:
1 Wealthy Mars
2 Mars’
1 Medium Polymeric
1 Medium Radium
1 Minor Metal

People starting after the server has been live for 2 months could get:
1 Earth
2 Wealthy Mars’
1 Medium Polymeric
1 Medium Radium
1 Medium Metal

People starting after the server has been live for 3 months could get:
3 Earths
1 Major Polymeric
1 Major Radium
1 Major Metal

Note: Major resource planets may or may not be placed in game at a later date. I hope they do add major resource planets.

Note: This will make them nice targets for advanced people. Maybe the current system of colonizing new systems will be enough to protect them.

Note: Might be better to just give them the normal starting system and a special premium boost item that cannot be bought. +100% to mines and ship speed or something.

OK, then I’d like to report a bug, because that info doesn’t appear for me 9 times out of 10 checking it – I needed Radium, and managed to cancel it after going out of planet, back in and checking trade dock tab several times…

And another idea – be able to queue up tier n research items after the tier n research job – i.e. Frigate, Tier 3 in the queue providing there’s a Tier 3 research job before it. I’m not going to be back on for another few hours, maybe until tomorrow, and have 30 mins until tier 3 is complete… would like to queue up Frigate to get a headstart…

not having that first, but as for your second… are you daft? there’s like, a 5 item queue for research!

He is talking about when you are researching to unlock the next level, but unable to queue items in the next level. I think this is a great idea.

This will be great if they open the server to other sites (Armor Games, FB, etc..)

We are working on EMP encyclopedia right now.

I was on the Russian server looking for info like this. Using Google translate, all I found was that the Ancients have Diabetes.

Topic: EMP Game / Updates discussions

I can only talk about the first week of game play.

The first levels of mines don’t produce much at all. With Muonic Chemistry tech (+10% production), all 3 +20% production speed premium bonuses, my level 8 mines produce 2,323 total resources an hour (single planet). 58 Engineers can gather that in 21.5 minutes in my system, or ~1.5 hours in the systems around me. 58 Engineers cost a LOT less than 8 level 8 mines (in resources as well as population).

Maybe we aren’t intended to have Fighters until week 1+. Farming in-actives is much better than farming asteroids/anomalies for me.

Buff Fighters, Asteroid, and Mines!

1) Give Fighters more cargo.

2) Increase regen time of resources and the resource caps of asteroids (at least low level asteroids). (I focus on anomalies, asteroids have too few resources from too many people attacking them.)

3) Increase the resources mines produce (2-3 times more).

4) Decease the cost of mines.
(I see mines as a waste of population and resources because I can make WAY more with a few more pilots.)

Look at EVERY WAY to gain resources, don’t just make micro changes to one way!

Topic: EMP Game / New server

1) I would love a faster server (10x!).

2) A temp speed universe that is 100-500x that only last a few hours/days would be fun (Tribal Wars does this).

3) I think the Devs should wait until this server reaches more than 50% full before consider if the market can support a second server.

4) I think it will be 3+ months before a second server is opened, unless this game is also on others sites and uses the same servers as Kong.

Note: Because of how spread out we are, new people are put in clusters of when they started, someone having a few days head start isn’t a big deal at all.

Would a cube shaped planet be habitable in real life?

I think it would be like this:

1) Gravity would pull everything towards the center as if the planet was a sphere.
2) The 8 corners would seem like massive mountains.
3) The 12 edges would seem like massive ridges between the mountains.
4) Oceans would form in the center of the 6 sides.

Topic: Kings Of The Realm / My 0.02¢ on the new patch

Silver is very hard to get now. No one has silver for me to take in PvP, and Silver mines rarely have any silver in them because everyone hits them ASAP. Selling resources is now the only way for me to gain silver. Stone is kind-of the new silver because (for my low level) I don’t need stone for troops.

The only fun part of this game was that is was fast paced. Even though we were mostly just grinding Orcs with some PvP, because of how fast paced leveling and building was, we enjoyed it. Now it is just a slow grind. If you don’t want people grinding Orcs, give us other things to do, don’t nerf the only fun part.

In 2 weeks they will wipe the servers, so no need for lower levels to play catch up. Well, we get 100 gold for every level before the wipe, so a higher level has more options without spending money.

I keep playing with the colors, not sure which (of the few) I like the best.

Topic: Kings Of The Realm / Orc Refresh Button

Same problem.

1) Orc camps should be in smaller groups (3 levels instead of 5).

2) A refresh button would help when all of the camps are on the highest level and you cannot defeat that level.

3) Forcing PvP just means people are in protection most of the time (95% of the people on my map currently are in protection).

Topic: Sandbox Hero / Missed kongpanions

I could see them re-releasing Kongpanions after a few months, instead of every week making new ones.
