Topic: Kongregate / We Need New Badges...

After 4 years here I gave up. Moved to NG. It’s been slowly declining ever since GS bought Kong until it’s reached…what you see today. I come back every few days just to check up but, its been..2 weeks? without a badge, and only a handful in the last few months.

Topic: Kongregate / New badge discussion

I think what needs to happen is there needs to be a new “team” that badges games. They pick out maybe 5 quality games a week, then spread the badges out over that week. That way we get new badges consistently, not just 1 or 2 on some Fridays, which are almost always for something horrible, like it is now.

Hearing this from a veteran Kongregator makes me laugh.

I stopped aiming for badges many moons ago.

Too many badges. Too many bad games with badges. Too long have we waited for a point to them.

Why does it make you laugh? I would think you’d agree with it. Too many? The whole problem is not enough, and what we do get are shit. All this back and fourth really can be summed with one word; money. Once GS got a hold of Kong, it did what it always has, run a business. There have always been those devs who make MMO/pay to play, GS just started using them. Games like that make money. Good, unique and free games don’t. It’s not just run by a brother and sister anymore. It’s a corporation, and badges don’t make that corporation money.

Topic: Kongregate / Is anyone else fed with with how pathetic Kong has become?

Ive been here since the middle of 2010 and I’ve really never used the forums. I was always a badge hunter. Now that I’m level 64 and the badge output is so low, there’s not a lot to do. Sorry if I rehashed another annoying topic that’s probably been brought up many times here. Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents.

There’s tons of games out there that could be given badges. From older ones that got overlooked to new ones that deserve it. Hell, like an an hour ago ANOTHER CCG/energy bar game was badged. I’m so tired of that shit. I remember when they changed the profiles and turned them into a FB type layout, I said “This is the start of Kong as we know it dying”. And I was right. It’s just a sad pathetic shell of what it used to be.

Remember the days when we’d get 10 badges a week? Now it’s 2 badges on most Fridays. And a lot of them end up being FB/energy bar games. The second GS bought them out it’s been about commercialization, not the games. The badges are what makes this site so special and unique. It stop being about the players and the games, only about money.

Topic: Kongregate / How to get Sola Rola working. (Was: How to almost get Sola Rola to work - very close.)

Wow..you guys are amazing. An example of players taking it into their own hands and f.ucking coding the game to get it to work. If I get some time I’ll go over everything you’ve done so far and see if I can help finish it. I’m far from an expert, but I know enough to help.

Topic: Ninja Warz / Bugs and Problems

Everything will work except the fights. I click to fight, and the star just sits there spinning and freezes. Which renders the game unplayable. As far as I can tell, everyone has this problem. Just another perk of all these damn “Facebook games”.

How did you get so many badges? I’m here for a year now and didn’t even reach level 30. :(

It really depends what kind of player you are. There are the casual players, and then there are people like Sephiroth and I. It’s basically a mix of having no life anymore and having a good amount of skill. I’ve loved games since I was probably 5 or 6 with my Atari. So this is just normal. I know its the same for him, and for most people at levels this high.

Anyone accusing him of cheating either needs to learn the very basics of the site..or stop sniffing the glue from your sisters panties…or both. 1. It’s very easy to know exactly when a person got any badge they’ve ever earned. You can very easily check and see that yes..he earned his first badge about a year ago.

I’ve been here for 4 years..but before this account never took it too seriously and would make new accounts all the time. I’m level 57 and about 90% of that has been done in the last year.

Can I anti-sign? I enjoy a hard challenge on occasion and for the few BoTDs I find too hard or just don’t like the game, I just skip the BoTD. Not sure the issue.

And Draconavin is right – Don’t stress the small stuff. :)

Ha..I like that. I’d like to anti-sign as well.

Topic: Kongregate / [Petition] Cancel Hard Badges of the Day!

Badge of the Week? Of the MONTH!? Really I mean, I know most people don’t have nearly the time to spend on badges as myself, or some other people. However..VERY few badges take a week. The only badge I can think of off the top of my head that nears that much time is the Golden Hero badge in DreamWorld. If it takes you….a month..to get ANY badge..then you shouldn’t be trying for ones like that. The bottom line here is, Hard BOTD’s are quite rare. So, the people who have a hard time with them, just won’t get the EXTRA 30 points. It’d be insane to remove them for everyone just because some people can’t do it. Your level/points here do largely depend on skill (Yes,time is a big part of it too I know.)

Are you serious??? That’s pathetic. First off..a Hard BOTD means an extra 30 or 60 points..2nd off, they are rare for BOTD. Just because you can’t get a hard badge doesn’t mean they should be removed.
