Topic: Battle Dawn / Battle Dawn Update 4.11.2012

Hi Everyone,
We updated KONG to version 18.7.2

The update include:
1. Daily bonus new boost…
Players can click on the “Your Daily Gift” button every 24 hours.
The gift can be one of the following options:

  • 50-100 Metal
  • 50-100 Oil
  • 5-10 Workers
  • 5-10 Bonus Tokens
  • 10-20 Energy

2. Players have option to hide missions for the world they are in.

3. New battle scoring system based on battles results.
Scoring formula as suggested.
How it working:
IN ADDITION to the current formula which takes power, workers, conquers, ops, relics and crystals.
It will also add the amount of score you gain from battles.
If you battle many battles along the round, then you should accumulate a nice score.
The way the battle score works is: battle score = number of workers killed in opposing army divided between the players who made the kill in accordance with their ratio of army sizes.
Example: if you killed in battle 30 tanks, and both you and your ally sent equal forces in a 2v1 battle.
Then each of you should get 45 points
30X3 = 90 / 2
If the power rating of one size on average based on the amount of units each player sent is more than double the other side.
Then the disproportionally stronger side will get 0 points.
While the very weak side will get double score for each kill he managed to make.
Example: DO NOT ATTACK players who have less than half your power.
This is to prevent bullying noobs for score and kills.

Thank you for supporting us.

About the many other new improvements we added…
There are so many because kongregate version was not updated for long time and our other versions were updated the only track on things are in our official forum. (Sorry about that)

But what we can say is from now kongregate version will be updated every time we will update our other versions of the game and we will let you know about it using kongregate messaging.

Topic: Battle Dawn / this is a jk

Sorry man. It was 5 man before the world was made inactive. I forgot to look over all of the world settings before starting it back up again.

Im tellin ya…if brainfarts could stink….

Although, I dont think 6 tickers need a delay. The only people who benefit from a delay are the first ones on the scene since they will get a chance to build and boost while late comers wont. You forget I used to admin here too…

Topic: Battle Dawn / simmen

Sorry. I messed up yet again. I awarded the top 3 alliances tokens when I was only supposed to award #1

If brainfarts could stink, I would be clearing the room many times over this morning :s

Topic: Battle Dawn / simmen

Yeah. I called the end last night so you guys could rest easy. I knew I was a little too swamped to get to it right away, so I paused ticks so I could bed down and get to it as soon as I woke up. Right after I post this, I am going to start havoc there. Thanks for being patient :)

Topic: Battle Dawn / simmen

Sorry about 5 man alliances on E1. That was my bad. It has been fixed.

As for “There’s always stuff like this”… the way it goes when humans do the work. Things happen that are beyond our control. Simmen is stressing about it, and its not like we plan on having problems. Problems happen. That’s life.

Topic: Battle Dawn / simmen

Sorry. Simmen is on vacation with his family. He paid for internet on the boat they are apparently on, but from what I gather, the internet is spotty and hasnt allowed him to get his job. He contacted me being rather critical and asked me to come and cover him until he can get back home.

He sends his personal apologies. He said he tried like hell to get on and do what was to be done, but ended up beating up his keyboard in frustration.

He promises to atone for it somehow when he gets back.

Until then, you have to deal with me again! >:)

Things are a little behind here, but I should have everything back on track by tomorrow morning. Please forgive me if I dont answer your messages between now & then, as I will only be replying to the most critical messages until I get the inboxes cleared out and worlds reset.

Thanks for being patient. Again, sorry for any inconvenience.

Topic: Battle Dawn / A minor bug.

The statistics pages have never been accurate. Why it is not fixed by now is likely due to the fact that it is not a pressing bug and other things have naturally been placed in a higher priority category.

My lineage for the record is German, Irish (this one is sketchy on the family tree. Could also be Scottish), Native American (Cherokee). I assure you I am not African.

What I really want you to know is I found BD just roaming the Kongregate games. So it’s not like it is hidden in the depths and no new people ever join. Getting new people I think is less of a problem than keeping them. Racking my brain I can’t think of a way to convince people to stay because Kongregate is NOT made of people who want to play this type of game.

I don’t see why .com and Kong can be advertised separately because they are two completely different games in my opinion, with different styles. Growing them seperately I would think would expand the Battle Dawn community even more than you can imagine.

See. Thats the thing that confuses me about you guys. You guys claim that the quiet servers with low population is what makes this different from main BD, but at the same time you want it advertised to bring more people into it, which would, should we somehow be able to secure 1200-2000 players per server to justify keeping more servers open, make it exactly like main BD. This seems really wonky to me…Which is it that you want? Do you want lower populations with a different dynamic, or do you want high populations with the same dynamic?

Topic: Battle Dawn / BD Kong

@LOLGfNOOB

Yeah, I know. And again, I apologize to you guys. My argument was with him, not with you. He tried like hell to drag you all into it, when the issue really had very little to do with Kong BD at all. My only point concerning Kong BD was that I did not make him Mod on main BD to play, post and brag about it on Kong BD, and so he could abuse the position to get preferential treatment without doing anything to earn it. I just went about making that point very poorly, as the guy was just pushing my buttons at that point and made me lose my cool.
