Oh! I was wondering where CQ2 was, was surprised it wasn’t on the list because it would absolutely have gotten my vote. Sweet.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate Tournament Sign-Ups & Directory

I can’t really say this without looking like kind of a whiny bitch, but Josh, if you feel you have such a good idea about how to revive tournaments, why don’t you host it yourself? Unless I’m very much mistaken, nobody really 1) is ready and 2) has a potential claim on the next spot, except for maybe you (says delayed in the OP.) I’d be willing to help where needed, but as you apparently know EXACTLY how to start them up again, I feel you should hold the reins.

For some reason I forgot what Rage & Grace was called, sorry – I was more referring to that, since it’s a lot more recent than Rise & Fall. And perhaps I should have said fairly uncommon, not fairly unique.

Honestly, the ideas have become oversaturated. I’ve seen the same ideas used again, and again, and again. Nobody is willing to take a chance on something different.

Why doesn’t Kongregate host a money tournament? Why not invite people from another forum to compete? Why not host a series of smaller tournaments, where the winners play each other? Or a live competition, where the players submit a recording of the game to their YouTube channels and the player with the best time wins.

The tournaments are dead because no one is doing anything interesting.

I disagree with this – we haven’t been using ideas as grand as those, but we’re far from only hosting vanilla tournaments. There’s actually been a tremendous amount of variance – T.B.A.C. had its own badge system and a fairly unique round system, G.T.N. was a team tournament, Rise & Fall was just totally different from anything else hosted so far, eProd’s tourney had three different houses, and Leb’s tourney was a bracket tournament where the competitors chose their own games. I’m going to go so far as to say that I doubt anything short of official promotion by Kong staff could reanimate tournaments, and we all know that won’t happen.

Second.

Why?

Probably because at this point, it’s become, for the most part, a stagnant and dwindling community with few original game picks. The golden age is long gone, and no matter how much we try to make up for that by loading tournies with new and intriguing elements, participation keeps going down. Tournaments from 2009-2011 averaged 100 participants each; the tournaments 2013 to the first third of 2014 have averaged less than half that, right down to our last tournament, in which a whopping 18 people joined.

The sign-ups & directory thread has fallen into disrepair despite several people having access to the account to update it, and the last edit made to the info & results sheet was on August 2, 2014. There’s simply not enough interest. That being said, I’d join any new one that was made, but I doubt I’d be very committed.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I’d recommend bumping the endless drunk badge up to 60 because 50 seems quite easy for an imp to me, but other than that it sounds fine.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I think that at least one badge should cover drunk mode in some way, whether it’s a hard for completion of all 8 levels or an imp for drunk endless or deaths.

(and if an imp for endless isn’t that badge can the req for normal endless be bumped to 100? :D)

Sticking with my 90 endless, 60 endless drunk suggestion from a little bit ago

I’m probably not going to get anything remotely decent on Raider tonight, so take a first try STtKY2 that also happens to be my best ever by about 1:30
