Topic: Clash of the Dragons / Kong, please stop it

Yes, there are definitely worse badged games (not just MMOs) on Kongregate. But I still really really hate it when Kong adds Badges to a game and then after a long time decides to add more Badges to it.

And personally I hate Badges/Achievements that take up lots of time for no reason, I prefer it when they are hard to get instead.

As it is, badges do not get removed easily, so you are stuck with this one.

Removing Badges is not the point. Personally I want to get every Badge that has been added, especially if it’s only there for a limited time. What I do want however is prevent Kongregate from adding Badges to shitty games in the future. I was not very pleased when this game first got Badges, but I could live with it, since they were quite easy and quick to get, but seeing that Kong added more Badges to it really annoyed me, especially because the hard one seems to be a very lengthy one (and I agree with it being “Overkill”, hehe)…

The Grinns Tale [Current rating: 4,37]

I know how much Kongregate loves puns so here we go:

Looking Grinn badge – (I don’t know, probably easy)
Explore the Archer’s village

Grinnreaper badge – Medium: 15 points (maybe Hard, I don’t know.)
Defeat the Grand Ghost

.. and that’s it from me… feel free to use the badge names for different tasks or suggest some more.

You have to make villagers “talk” to the Fuzzlehorn. It should give you 3 Happiness instead of 1, which is what you normally get when 2 villagers talk to each other.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Is it impossible to survive through floors without a knight?

I also still use an Adventurer, he was really good with a Sneak set and a Big Wrench I found (89 attack). He was really fast and pretty powerful. My Berserker only had 2 more points in attack :P
I’m working on my Dandy set right now, but it looks like it will be pretty good aswell.

you increase building cap with each concurrent boss you defeat, 6 bungalows when not past floor 4 (or boss 1) then after beating him you unlock 4 more, then another 4 after the next boss and so on as far as i’ve observed.
I already unlocked the next zone, it’s still the same cap(s) as before.


Nope. After killing the 4th Boss it was still the same cap(s).
So it seems there are different prerequisites for different building caps.

I have the suspicion that when you open more building zones you get an increase of number of buildings…so far i have opened up two zones and I should be opening my 3rd in a few days (have 1 zone medal need one more and i think i know where to get it – I think it waits for me at the end of ironsides)

No.
I already unlocked the next zone, it’s still the same cap(s) as before.

I haven’t upgraded my Hero’s monument in awhile. I, however, have went up multiple floors, and now I can build more bungalows.

I can confirm that, it happened to me when I had the Hero’s Monument on lvl 4 (the max lvl, btw) and climbed a few Floors. I think it went from 10 Bungalows to 14.. but don’t ask me which Floor that was..

Look at the Game description, there will be Updates on the Kills.
But yeah, it’s pretty annoying that there’s no real-time counter for the players to see.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Soundtrack

You should also say which song you are referring to as there is more than just one.
And I’m not even talking about the battle/boss music :P
After every Boss (or at least after the 2nd and 3rd, probably even the 4th) the background music in town changes. So far I really liked the one after the 2nd Boss though, too bad I can’t change it back after defeating Boss #3..

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Golden Eggs [answered]

They come from monsters (obviously). It can be any enemy, it’s just a rare drop. And the prize is…. 10 Golden Eggs.
Yeah, there’s no prize – this was part of an event which is over now, so they are worthless now.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Frequently Asked Questions

So about the artifacts…

http://thegrinnstale.com/forum/index.php?topic=165.0

This is a handy guide to find out which artifact drops on which Floor. But it doesn’t have to be THAT Floor, it can be one near it. For example I got the Weaponshop on Floor 10 and the Armorshop on Floor 11 and the Metal Storage 3 on Floor 25 after killing the Boss a few times. Anyway, it’s a pretty useful list.

Oh, and you forgot to mention the Golden Eggs. They were part of an event, but it’s over now from what I’ve heard. Many people keep asking this question.

Topic: The Grinns Tale / Frequently Asked Questions

Good FAQ you have there, but I have some things to add:
It was mentioned in the chat that villagers tend to drop potions when using “rally” once Happiness is high enough, which is pretty neat I guess.
Also I found the Armor Shop lvl 2 on Floor 11, so it seems to be more or less random in the early 10’s with those Artifacts.

Oh, and using refined gear to craft the next Tier of equipment increases the chance of getting a refined item, but that should be pretty well known.

See, if it’s something a villager says, then I believe it. I probably missed that quote (even though I usually always click on those question marks).

Topic: The Grinns Tale / refined equipment.

Originally posted by TheSilenT:

3 things increase the chance of a gear being refined.

1. Using villager actions. When you go to make something, it’s a good idea to have max villager actions and use them all.

2. Using refined gear in the recipe. On Tier 1 items or ones without gear in the recipe, you get this bonus automatically.

3. The level of the building. You have a higher chance of getting refined gear of a lower tier than your building can produce. This makes it easier to supply refined gear for #2.

Though be warned, getting refined Tier 4 gear is incredibly tedious.

And how do you know, that those things actually increase the chance? (Aside from using a refined equipment to craft a higher tier, because this is actually mentioned ingame)
I mean maybe you just THINK it increases the chances while in reality it actually doesn’t.

Topic: Kongregate / Game advertisement through PM Spam

I also find it very annoying getting a message every few days from some random game, especially when I dislike/hate the game or only clicked on it and played for a few seconds (or sometimes not even that, but an accidental click). If you are going to keep this stupid system, at least let us filter the games out. As somebody else already mentioned receiving messages from games rated 4 or 5 stars and/or favorite games could be allowed, or let us subscribe to every game we are interested in instead of just giving us messages from every game we ever played.

A “buy back” option for 24 or 48 hours (or longer? Or maybe we get x Slots for sold cards in the shop to buy back) would be really useful in case you sell accidentally sell a good card. It would be best if it’s the same price for selling and buying.

Topic: Kongregate / Save game

You go to:

C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\QMQRHATN\chat.kongregate.com

You can also go there manually but keep in mind that “AppData” is an invisible folder.
Now once you get there you might see some files that end with “.sol” .. those are your savefiles (and settings) for the games on Kongregate. Some game savefiles are stored in this folder, but most of them are stored in other folders inside this one:

For example there may be a folder named “gamez” and in there is a folder named “0002” inside this one is another folder with some random numbers then a folder named “live” and finally a folder which should have the game name or something similar (though some game developers tend to use random names, but that’s rare).

Now all you have to do is copy the .sol file in that folder (sometimes it’s more than one, so you have to copy them all) and put them on your USB Stick, CD, iPod or whatever you use to transport your data. When you are at your friends house open the game, play a bit and then save (if you can not save manually it will probably save automatically, so playing for a few seconds is enough). This step is needed to create the folder and the .sol file(s)
All that’s left now is to go the same path as you did before and replace the file(s) with your own.

Topic: Tyrant / Suggestions

1.Add an option so I have to confirm when I want to switch my deck, one wrong click and you get an empty Deck and waste Energy or Stamina.
2.Sort the Faction Members by Name, Level, Loyalty, Rank, etc.
3.See who is online and who is offline, seeing their Energy/Stamina would be pretty useful aswell (though maybe this one should be optional.
4.Getting more max Energy (and maybe Stamina) for every level up or other possibilities (paying Gold?) to refill them would be appreciated, too.
5.I want to see how my Defense Deck is doing (win/loss ratio) …. well, why not?
6.Let Energy/Stamina refill even during Battles! Because it doesn’t do that.
7.Don’t reset the “Find Rival” list when clicking on a different Tab ingame. Only do it when clicking the refresh button.

Topic: Tyrant / [Dev] Faction Wars / Update 6/14

Originally posted by synapticon:

1.7.12
-Faction chat should now be fixed
-You can now test your decks both Attack-first and Defense-first

Proposal for an update:
-Two options for attacking:
Ambush: Attack goes first (as previous versions).
Fight: Defense goes first, but additional bonus points (maybe 10-20) on a victory. No additional cost for losing beyond the normal points lost.
(Both still cost 10 Stamina)

This gives everyone the ability to choose which style of combat they want. It gives an advantage to those that can consistently win going second, while allowing all players to contribute as much as pre-patch going first. It also will maintain the original card balance.

If you guys like the sound of this, we can start playtesting this. What do you think?

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

I would find it pretty interesting if you could see how your comments are rated when viewing them in your own profile, or at least add a link that jumps to the comments page of the game where your own comment is.. does that sound confusing?

Okay, gonna try another way..
We all know there are comments under every game, and you can rate those comments up or down and see the total amount of votes (green or red). So I would like to see that number when I view my own profile, or that of somebody else in the comment section.

I would like to add this to my previous post where I suggested a voting-system for shamans, just like player maps:
Once a “good shaman” reaches like.. 1000 “yes” votes, he can suggest to ban a troll from the room. He just types in /ban Name normally, then a window pops up after the map was finished asking the mice to vote “I agree” or “I do not agree” giving the mice 5 seconds to vote.
This might help decreasing the trolls, since a lot of people don’t even know about the /ban option because they are either new, or don’t read the chat at all..

(I suggested this on page 14, if anybody wants to see the original post)

It’s bad, because I think everyone will rate ‘no’ for a shaman, and if the shaman is a troll? He would ban the pro people >_>

Yeah, like everybody would vote “no”.. keep dreaming, only a few trolls would do this (My guess is a maximum of around 5-6 in a single room), and you could just reduce it if you add a rule like "You can’t vote “no” more than.. let’s say 5 times for the same shaman"
I don’t know, they should just try a few different numbers for those votings :D

“and if the shaman is a troll? He would ban the pro people >_>” and how exactly should that work?
I said you have to reach 100, 1000, or whatever “yes” votes (in a single room, of course) after being a shaman, which can only be achieved after several times being a shaman.
I also said.. or rather “wrote” that the shaman just SUGGESTS somebody to ban, and opens a window for every mouse in the room asking if (s)he should be banned or not (of course after the level was finished by everybody), so it’s not very likely that an “innocent” mouse gets banned, but then again I can’t tell how the mice in the room would react if this was actually used ingame.

Also I agree on ghost mice after dying and rising the % needed for a map to become an official one, because 50% is just.. well.. stupid. 70-75% would be good IMO.
