Also, sacrificing more ships to your enemy allows them to build more ships, which means you have more ships to destroy, which gives you more points which ultimately gives you more stars.

Are you sure about that or does it just seem like it should work like that? I see no significant difference in number of enemy units in a level in which I build 40 or 400 vessels.

Topic: General Gaming / Black Navy War: Guide

If you’re trying to just beat the game, sure, blast the hell outta Yamato with 50 cannons. But it takes waaaaaay to much time to build more than two fully armed fortresses if you’re going for points. I still can’t finish it off fast enough to break 100k; I either get overwhelmed and my ass blown off, or I trigger it too late and miss the mark by ~5k. Is an aircraft carrier > 2 battleships? The carrier gets a better ratio, but it has absolutely pathetic firepower in comparision.

EDIT: OK, just got 3 stars on level 10. Very likely it’ll be 100k on that one. Approximate strategy:
To start, upgrade supply 4 times, recycler 4 times (destroy patrol boats as late as possible to maximize effectiveness), make destroyer/frigate combo x2 (or three if you get unlucky), max supply line, max recycler.
Next, continue destroyer/frigate stalling while building three or four more artillery guns. Mass ~4k resources and rush an armada of subs and destroyers, garnish with a few frigates as necessary.
The fortress should be 75% sunk as the Reds counter. Replace destroyer losses in between a couple battleships. Depending on how well your counter attack survives, you may need to repeat the sub/destroyer rush.
Complete your artillery sextet and hunker down as your battleships are slowly ripped apart by the enemy’s main base. Save up for a fortress of your very own and fill the three artillery slots.
Prepare the big push, battleships, destroyers, subs, some frigates. You should destroy most or all of the automated defenses before Yamato comes to wreck your day. You should also be able to make another fortress with full artillery detail. Time a second push as you fleet begins to dwindle to stick Yamato in the maximum zone of fire. I was able to build a third stocked fortress before the beast went down.
This is the trickiest part; before Yamato is in its final death throws, make sure you have just enough firepower to finish it off. The enemy base should be ~650 and you don’t want to blow it up just yet. When you sink the titan, make just enough subs/frigates to handle everything below, and blast the defenseless ships above with your 12-15 artillery guns. You should be at just under 80,000 points or so before the enemy is reduced to a trickle and you can thrust the final dagger it its heart.

Two side notes:
1. I’ve found it helpful to train my guns on bombers so they go down just a little faster. Those things hurt. Lots.
2. Train your gun so it hits the first missile battery on the enemy fortress, after you get the gun set, quit and reload. Your gun will stay in position and you can get in some cheap shots before the first patrol boat is even on the field.

My scores/stars so far:

Stage 1 – 31080 *­*­*
Stage 2 – 25090 * (36190 *­*­*)
Stage 3 – 21780 * (38962 *­*­*)
Stage 4 – 25750 ­* (38754 *­*­*)
Stage 5 – 28260 * (45166 *­*­*)
Stage 6 – 37044 ­*­* (52376 *­*­*)
Stage 7 – 40570 ­­*­* (49590 *­*­*)
Stage 8 – 58278 ­­**­*
Stage 9 – 66038 * (83894 *­*­*)
Stage 10 – 94410 ­** (101592 *­*­*)

They’ve gotta be purely score based. The trick is triggering a massive counter attack while your score rate is still ~0.9 so you can optimize the points per kill. One patrol boat (20 hp) scores 20 points when the score rate = 1, 18 when the score rate = 0.9 etc…
In the earlier levels, you should be able to get by without needing to purchase any extra turrets, just be wary of finishing off the base as you’re critically damage it. The latter few (with fortresses) require an initial push to break the fortress, then extreme turtle action while you bolster you artillery.
Having your “base max life” skill maxed doubles your score bonus (10,000 to 20,000) at the end provided your base is fully repaired, very helpful on the earlier levels.
Also, submarines in large numbers are extremely effective. The only thing that can break up a “wolf pack” is a bomber. Frigates get smoked before they can take out more than one or two.

Almost Steevey (remember edit post?). Starburst was kind enough to drop by a day or two ago and fix the share button. You can go back to the compose page and it should work just like before. Also, during the down-time, I reworked my “Starlight” from around the initial release of the Beta: http://notessimo.net/?id=26677

If things don’t work out at his current job, I believe Starburst is looking for a position at Blizzard. Apparently it is still under construction (indeed some teaser shots have been provided) so all we can do is wait until he can finish it. It’s gonna be good.

Topic: Kongregate / Kreds Discussion

I for one would not be able to earn a single award if I knew that somewhere, a thousand miles away perhaps, someone was able to buy that award. I mean, what’s the point? It’s a game website. What’s the point of playing games on a game website for useless awards if you can buy those useless awards? I mean, I should be able to brag about my superiority in game-playing sure, but when it comes to flaunting affluence, that crosses a line! I mean, just because I’m better than some rich kid doesn’t mean he should be able to level the field with pay-per-powerups. That’s not how the real world works. This just outrages me on so many levels! Why should my gaming experience be cheapened? The mere knowledge that my achievements are purchasable just makes the whole thing not worth it. Why play the games anymore? anyone? Any Kreds supporters, I dare you to answer this simple question: What is the purpose of playing games if someone can pay to play an easier version of the same game ? By introducing money into the equation, Kongregate has essentially destroyed all purpose in game-playing. I’m going to Armor Games to win some Armatars.

20 pages in two days… a sticky would be superfluous.

Hell of a lot speculation going on… and a hell of a lot egotistical whining. Yahoo!
FACT : Kongregate is going to send everyone retroactive bills for time spent on the site payable only in Kreds.
FACT : The developers don’t even deserve the minuscule reimbursement they get from current ad revenue.
FACT : Soon, no badges will be displayed unless paid for.
FACT : This new Kreds system will encourage developers to become lazy and eventually halt all production of new games so they can spend their time looking for vacation homes.
FACT : This capitalist-whore system will drive everyone, everyone to other websites that aren’t in the pockets of the corporate fat cats.
FACT : The developers owe us, NOT the other way around.
FACT : Games will be charged by-the-byte to your Kred accounts.
FACT : I understand how a free market works.

Haha! Zilch impossible badge : Play the game 24/7 for about a week or purchase for 500 Kreds. No need for the “???,” hello profit. Will there be some correlation between Kreds and Premium Games? Pay-per-view baby!

Topic: Kongregate / Should Zilch have an impossible badge for all 120 awards?

So, the party against an impossible badge cites reasons why it will be too difficult (read luck-based) or time consuming to obtain. This implies they will either A) not be able to earn it B) choose not to earn it or C) waste too much time in earning it. Why exactly are they against it? There is no requirement to obtain every badge on the site, no requirement to earn any badge on the site. For completion then? How many members actually have every badge so far? Surely, anyone who has obtained every badge, or aims to obtain every badge, will not complain about having wasted his/her time, or will at least recognize the irony well enough to stay quiet. Why fight another badge you will not earn and do not care to earn? Spite? Don’t want another grayed-out badge on your wall of achievements? Let people who enjoy the game get rewarded for committing such a long time to it. If you don’t like the game, don’t waste your time.

If you kids are done with your very interesting and very on-topic discussion I’d like to ask a question to about one-tenth of the Notessimo 2 users, and specifically to WestBoiSouljah3: what motivates you to paste your name on a song?

http://notessimo.net/?id=9255 … and looking back to page 2, http://notessimo.net/listen.php?id=144

I mean, if you’re going to steal something, at least have the decency to add something of your own to it before you falsely claim it as your own.
