Topic: Kongregate / Why so much Idle?

This won’t last forever, at least not here. A very important factor that we need to consider is that Greg doesn’t badge idle games unless they’re spectacular and/or innovative. With everyone jumping on the idle bandwagon, we’re getting flooded with games that aren’t badgeworthy. Soon enough, either someone at HQ will realize that idle games are crippling a key component of the site or the badgers will revolt and force a change.

Badge a mahjong game? I can dig it. Unfortunately, it seems to be a bit too niche for Kong. Mahjong Master is the only mahjong game that fits the badging requirements, and it (like the other mahjong games in the Hot New list) has less than 20,000 plays.

In other news, I think we might’ve missed the deadline for badge variety on Decision 3.

Kind of weird he was banned. Must have something to due with his chatting?


Otherwise, I got nothing.


It was my alt. I didn’t chat or anything, only added 1600 friends. I guess the mods have some sort of grudge around me or something because almost every account I make gets permabanned for doing nothing. I’ve used proxies, but they still keep banning.


1600 people in 2 days? They probably mistook you for a bot.

The first thing that comes to mind with the stashes badge is Scavenger Hunt. (Oh, please say it’s not already taken…)

3 outposts captured sounds about right. As far as kills go, we could tie it to the Thousand achievement and bump it to med/hard. (Unpopular opinion, but I am not against an MHH game.) Also, I really liked Precarious’s idea about a badge for finding 50 stashes.

Moderator, what GeorgeKillerX wants to be.

Why does Moderator ≠ GeorgekillerX?

Because he doesn’t know how to become a mod.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Everything you’ve suggested already exists. The fact that you couldn’t find any of these things, or didn’t bother to look, is very telling.

The opening to each of the Last Door games is pixelated slow pan footage of an entire murder of crows and you’re still not happy? Just no pleasing some people…

Topic: Kongregate / STAFF, DO SOMETHING OR AT LEAST CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU DON'T CARE

Alternate possibility: if one user makes a bunch of messages in a row, taking up a lot of space, they get collapsed into a single line saying “Username: 6 messages (click to expand)”. Doesn’t solve all possible trolling problems, but it’ll stop someone from flooding the window.

I’m not sure how difficult it would be to code, but it does sound like a good idea. You should post it over in the suggestion thread

Please refer to my comment.

So, what is your Decision on which game to badge next?

Since there’s six achievements, how about Six Ways To Doomsday? (with the reference in question being the idiom – as seen here http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/six_ways_to_Sunday – and not the movie)

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I’m not so sure about all achievements. While the walkthroughs do include a way to get three of them in one run, without walkthroughs it’ll take you six or more times. Considering point-and-clicks are usually a “beat it and then never play it again” type experience, this might not be a very appealing badge.

Maybe there’s some way the admins can ban a user’s IP address? That’d certainly stop the same person from making tons of accounts just to spam.

Between the workaround of proxy servers and the fact that dynamic allocation makes it difficult to target a specific IP address without banning other users in the process, it’s not feasible.

Also, Psychatog, I am sick and tired of your attitude. If you’re so concerned about the lack of decent people on Kongregate, then stop scaring them away.

The problem I have with The Awakening RPG isn’t so much the difficulty or its being unfinished as it is some very unfortunate navigation errors. Stuff like clipping through a locked door and having to refresh and lose your progress because now you’re stuck in a room you shouldn’t have been able to get into in the first place. If it wasn’t for this, I could easily overlook the fact that it’s unfinished.

@Flying Cat Frozen Torch has their own Facebook page, like many other well-known devs. All their posts are either update announcements or daily gift codes. And tbh, I don’t see why it’s a big deal to click a Facebook link. There are plenty of games which do “click our FB link for free gold” and the only difference is Frozen Torch’s Facebook page has more incentive for repeat hits.
