Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

@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.

Epic Boss Fighter 2 is far too easy to get an impossible badge because you can take the bosses down one at a time with no penalty for losing.

I’ve finished the game with less than 100 boss killed. Getting 500 kills for the award would be just pure grind with no benefit and no fun.

So set the bar high. I don’t know if it has a separate tracker for Insane mode, but the game does track Total Bosses Killed. Maybe don’t go as high as 500, since AsSto makes a valid point. This is about the challenge, not the tedium.

Sonny (My love of Zombie games cannot be denied. Neither can my love of RPGs.)
Pandemic 2 (The game that put the “impossible” in “impossible badge”. I shake my fist at you, Madagascar. I shake it quite heartily.)
Punk-O-Matic (I like this better than the SCGMD series because you could create an entire band.)
The Last Stand (Again, zombies.)
Monster’s Den (A good old-fashioned dungeon crawler RPG that vaguely reminds me of D&D.)

1) Rise of Champions is a well-built and well-maintained game with a combat style and pvp focus often underrepresented in MMO games. It also has regular updates and an attentive dev team. That’s pretty impressive since the entire dev team consists of three people.

2) I would rather take a power sander to the eyeballs than fight The Obelisk, badge or no badge. I’m not the only RoC player who has a similar, if less hyperbolic, opinion. The Obelisk is one of the hardest battles in the game and I believe there are plenty of other challenges that are better suited for a badge.

I think we need to take into consideration the TEC2 conversation that happened on page 106. There were some good ideas there.

Maybe go with Procyonpi’s idea and add a medium “reach character lvl X” badge to fit with Bluji’s suggestion?

Also, there are plenty of pop culture references for the potential spider slaying badge. Aragog Aggressor, Miss Muffet’s Revenge, Angering Anansi… if you’ve got the char limit for it you could go with Does Whatever A Spider Can’t.

fixed by dev today, it runs like hell

In my opinnion, Strikeforce Kitty 2 need badges, it’s one of the best games I have played here since Fancy Pants, GemCraft and Cyclomaniacs. And it’s been a long time playing and testing, believe me.

Maybe a badge for getting 100% on X levels? Making X equal nine and tying it into the whole “nine lives” concept seems like a possible idea.

I agree with not badging The Awakening RPG, because there’s only so many times you can glitch halfway through a wall before you ragequit.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge of the Day Discussion

Given my extreme dislike of jump scares (and how I only got through the first two chapters of The Last Door by judicious use of “liquid courage”) I was disappointed when I saw this was the Monday BoTD. I would’ve swept the week otherwise.

I’m so glad that greg badge mmo games which has normally had a high rating, so if the gate will get badges, i’d like to suggest mmo games:

KingsRoad (current rating: 4.35)
City of Steam: Arkadia (current rating: 4.31)
Rise of Champions (current rating: 4.21)
Redshift (current rating: 4.19)
Duty of Heroes (current rating: 4.08)
Monsters & Dungeons (current rating: 3.98)

Rise of Champions is a really good game with an astoundingly good support system. Frozen Torch is a three person team which consistently provides regular updates, new content, bugfixes, etc and I find that really impressive.

My only concern is that they are a three man team who just upgraded the game to include access through Yahoo. Given that because of this they have already had a recent influx of new players and badged MMOs tend to suffer severe lag and other server-related problems in the wake of the increased post-badge server load, I’m worried about breaking such a great game.

Topic: Kongregate / Add filter to recommended games

Originally posted by Oozes:

I think “recommended for you” will works better if a tag filter is added. Most of my recommendations are tower defense, because I use to play strategy… but never tower defense (just because I don’t enjoy it). I suppose this happens to other players with, for example, rpg but not turn-based, or action but no shooter.

Actually I can avoid these recommendations rating poorly these games, but it’s very unfair with the developers. And lows the general rating of a game that maybe is very good (but not to me).

By the way, being able to search using two or more filters at the same time could be great too. Thanks!

I agree with all of this. I would be more likely to play games from the recommended list if I could filter according to my interests.

Todays badge of the day is driving me insane. How exactly is this supposed to be an easy badge?

You’ll need to do some grinding and sink your coins into upgrades. Double jump is a must, and I didn’t get the badge myself until I had a full complement of pigs.

Topic: Rise of Champions / Obelisk balance discussion.

My strategy has been to combine fire abilities, Slash Face, and Critical Blow while focusing on one pylon at a time; even then I get spanked nine times out of ten. It just seems excessive that the pylons’ ability gives them both speed boost and damage boost. Add the Obelisk’s healing ability on top of that and I don’t even bother playing on days when the daily tasks include beating the Obelisk.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Do you have ideas for AdCap? Share them here!

I think the cash upgrades need some restructuring. Once you hit the trestrigintillion mark, the cash upgrades are all three of the same kind in a row, which may be part of what causes things to stall out before/at reaching 2300 of everything.

Topic: Rise of Champions / 9/12 Balance feedback

The only thing I can think of is that Brawl needs to be optimized to reduce lag. A single player getting crunched by lag can have a big impact on the outcome of the Brawl, let alone multiple players with lag.
