Topic: Brick-Force / Sudden game closure

Hey everybody—

We got an email this morning from the developers of Brick-Force that they had shut down the game. D:

Kongregate’s policy is to give players 30 days’ notice of game closures, but obviously we can’t force developers to re-open a server that’s already closed. Instead, I went ahead and refunded all purchases made in the last month.

I’m really sorry to be the bearer of bad news and wish there was more I could do.

Topic: TDP5 Arena / Free Kreds

The only way to get free Kreds is by completing offers on the official Kreds page.

Step 1. Click “FUND YOUR ACCOUNT.”
Step 2. Click “EARN FREE KREDS.”
Step 3. Complete any offer you wish to earn free kreds.

Note: These offers are hosted by TrialPay, a third-party company. If you do not receive the kreds that you are supposed to, Kongregate cannot help you. See this post for details.


Anyone offering free Kreds is lying to you! There is no way to transfer Kreds between accounts.


Asking for passwords or to trade accounts for any reason will result in your account being permanently banned, so don’t do it! If you see someone offering free Kreds in exchange for a password, please send an email to support@kongregate.com or report them from their Kongregate profile.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To Devs] I do not bot and I have never shared my account info. But you have made it really hard not to. Here is why.

Originally posted by BotFTW:

I just posted a rather detailed tutorial on botting, to see what the devs official response would be.

They deleted the thread in less than a minute.

That’s right, deleted. Didn’t edit the tutorial out and post anything, send me a message, or lock it, simply deleted it and swept it under the rug as if it had never existed.

I’ve never seen them be so expeditious about a potentially harmful forum topic here before.

That’s actually more worrying than anything, since it shows that they don’t condone botting, but hide their heads in the ground like ostriches whenever it is brought up and go out of their ways to sweep it under the rug, instead of actually taking action on it.

I am tempted to post it again, if we don’t hear an official statement on the matter.

Actually, what happened is that our forum spam filter hid it for admin review. If you ever see a post hidden (or, if it’s the OP, the entire thread vanishes) within a minute or two of posting, it’s probably the spam filter.

Topic: Off-topic / What grinds your gears on kong

super srs answer: Lots of people joke about pedophiles, but they (and ephebophiles) are real. I have come across a few here on Kongregate, and if I had a magic wand and could keep some people away from the site, it would be them. I’d even rather have the alpaca spammer than predators.

regular answer: I hate screamer links. D: And also when people assume that someone is trolling when actually they’re just new.

Even without cutiepie gf, there is still, you know, regular pie in the world… and also (apparently) Cthulhu blueberry pie! Life is full of interesting surprises.

Topic: Off-topic / If you could spend a day with someone who would it be????

Good question!

At least today, I would choose my friend Tom, who died of esophageal cancer a year and a half ago. Today is his birthday. It would be bittersweet to only have him back for one day, but definitely worth it.

Rabbits aren’t rodents; they’re lagomorphs. I read up on the differences once… and then promptly forgot everything except the word “lagomorph” which amuses me for some reason.

I like all the colors. Not to be all hippy-dippy, but each color can be beautiful in certain settings or places.

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Game closing on Oct 26

Hello everyone,

I’m sorry to announce that Pirates: Tides of Fortune will be closing on Kongregate in one month’s time. This was a decision made by the developers, not by Kongregate, and we’re sorry to see the game go.

It’s Kongregate’s policy to return any kreds spent within 30 days of a game’s closure. Our preferred solution is that developers turn off purchasing but leave the game up for 30 days, allowing players to continuing enjoying in-game items for a while, and Plarium agreed unhesitatingly to this arrangement.

Game takedowns are always painful, especially when we have made friends and built a community with other players. If you know of other games on Kongregate that might appeal to folks who liked this one, post them here!

Topic: Endless Boss Fight / this forum now serves both mobile and web players

We used to have separate forums for web and mobile, but decided to combine them so everyone would have an easier time discussing strategy and game mechanics.

Enjoy!

Topic: Pirates: Tides of Fortune / Pirates: Tides of MISFORTUNE

We first heard this morning that the game is down. We’ll do our best to reach Plarium and find out what’s up as soon as we can.

As a general rule, our expectation is that developers will give players 30 days’ notice of a shutdown. Failing that, we return kreds used in the game within the 30 days prior to shutdown. We have heard nothing about a shutdown, so I’m hoping the issue is a server problems of some kind.

Topic: Wartune / NEVER give anyone your password! an important reminder from Kongregate

Hello all,

In the last few hours we have been hearing from players and moderators that accounts are being stolen. So far, at least, it works like this:

1. scamming player uses in-game chat to offer some kind of benefit in exchange for someone else’s password
2. other player agrees
3. scamming player promptly changes email and password on the account, which means it now belongs to them
4. Scamming player uses new account to continue scamming.

Kongregate’s efforts to track down the people responsible are currently hindered by the fact that we can’t see in-game chat, and that most R2 staff are currently asleep (because it’s the middle of the night in China).

In most cases, if your account is stolen, we won’t be able to help you get it back so please, please, please don’t give out your password.

If your account has been stolen, you may write to support@kongregate.com and tell us the Kongregate name of the stolen account. I still can’t promise you’ll get your account back, but it might help us stop the scamming faster.

For those interested, see here.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Eternal Saga] and [Lunaria Story] will be closing on Sept 12

Hello all—

Just a wanted to let everyone know that R2 Games has decided to close Eternal Saga and Lunaria Story on Kongregate.

While we don’t have exact details as to what they’ll be like, the developers have agreed to provide welcome packages in another of their games (Dragon Pals) based on any kreds spent in ES or LS in the past 6 months.

In order to claim your welcome package, you’ll need to make a character in Dragon Pals, making careful note of your server number. Then complete the relevant form(s), which are linked below. If you played both games, complete both forms.

Form for people who played Eternal Saga is here.

Form for people who played Lunaria Story is here.

Deadline to complete these forms is September 9, 2014, at 11:59PM PST.

In accordance with Kongregate’s 30-day closure notice policy, anyone who spent kreds in ES or LS after August 12 will have their kreds refunded instead of getting bonuses in Dragon Pals. You’re welcome to spend those kreds in any game you like!

Sorry, your posts are being hidden by our forum spam filter. It will take a few times of them being unhidden before everything works.
