What’s your point? People are offended by all sorts of things. How do you determine what is rational and what is irrational?

Just to be clear here… Swastika’s and what not can be easily taken offensive and also can be considered a hate crime which is a federal offense in the U.S. Tread carefully:)

I am offended by the word weewoo, so your avatar is offensive, therefore it should be removed.

Someone is offended by anime, so my avatar is offensive, therefore it should be removed.

To me, that makes about as much sense as being offended by a Nazi symbol.

Originally posted by Bobogoobo:

I like how the Kongpanion hunters are now breaking the site each week with our F5 spamming at update, lol.

I still wonder why people care about so much about getting a lower number for a useless kongpanion.

People are weird.

That’s a questionable decision to remove an avatar as harmless as either of those.

There is no difference in the two. Allow them both, even the nazi one.

The police system in my country is fucked so I’m going to buy guns to protect myself. I will make no attempt at improving the police system because I can shoot criminals myself. Police officers can just sit around and keep being useless. There is absolutely nothing illogical in that.

Perfectly logical to me. Imagine the drop in crime rate we would have.

Topic: Kongregate / Bring back Global Mods, here is a reason why Global Mods are needed more than Room Mods

Originally posted by FlyingCat:

Then you can just mute them if you don’t want to see them. Muting them is a far better alternative than you insulting them and calling them fairly undesirable things. Even if you do want more mods, having multiple accounts is not against the rules and having them remove users who use alt accounts is you trying to mold the room to your needs.

Yup.

When you respond to them, especially in a negative way, you are part of the problem, not the solution.

Every. Single. ****ing. Time. there is a promotion like this it’s just for Americans. Could you for once have something that Europeans can also have?!

>:(

EDIT: Especially when I don’t get to choose where I was born. I don’t get to choose where I live until the age of 18. It’s not my own fault to live in Europe. And the same goes for most Kongregants who live outside America! It’s just wrong! (Unless there is some law preventing this thing as well — no surprise would that be.)

I wish I was born in Europe.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle...

Most idle games have an element of user input for faster progress.

It may not be much, but it still fits the criteria of a game.

So it’s not the type of game for you, but it’s still a game.

Topic: Kongregate / Will Kongregate follow the European standard

Originally posted by Tetsuo_Shima:

By that definition we should just fully allow all vices such as addictive drugs and so forth as well. Most governments disagree, but maybe we should just oppose that and let all stupid people be stupid. Now, you could argue: not for those type of things, they’re more serious. But then the issue simply becomes where to draw the line, clearly in this instance the EU has drawn the line elsewhere than you did bobby and crow.

They’re not saying you can’t have those games anymore btw, you simply can’t state that they’re free anymore, which in all honesty, they’re mostly not and they most certainly try to pull out all the stops to get you to buy. ^^

As someone who plays a lot of mobile games with in-app purchase options, I never feel pressured to spend. The vast majority of these games don’t pressure you into spending, and the ones that do tend not to survive for very long.

I actually do think drugs should be legal, but that is another story.

Point is that almost all free apps with in game purchases give you a solid free game with completely optional purchases that anyone with self control would never be tempted to use. You can’t police self control, that is just something people have to learn on their own.

Asexuality is a thing, don’t be a shitdick.

BECAUSE ASEXUALITY ISN’T NORMAL, RIGHT? HE MUST HAVE A DISEASE OR SOMETHING!

It exists, it just is not normal.

You realize everyone is on the asexual spectrum, right? Some peeps just have no sexual attraction to others, some peeps just really want to [expletive] everyone they meet. I’ve just never really cared about physical intimacy with other peeps and after having done so, kind of solidified how I’ve just always been.

Sorry, haven’t really given up since I do still like peeps. I just don’t want to do anything more than kissing or hugging them.

You will. Maybe you are just a late bloomer.

19 is still young enough for it to be plausible, but if you still feel this way in 5 years, I would be concerned.

Topic: Kongregate / Will Kongregate follow the European standard

I hope not. It does not take a genius to figure out that just about all free game apps have in-game purchase options that can be set to be impossible to use by just a small setting change on your device, or simply never linking a credit/debit card.

I want it to stay as is. Tag it by what the entry fee is. If it’s free to download, it’s a free game. If it costs $1.99 to download, it’s not a free game.

At some point you just have to let stupid people be stupid. If someone puts $8000 into Candy Crush and then complains later that Candy Crush ruined his life and he ended up getting evicted because he couldn’t afford the rent, then who’s fault is that?

Don’t even get me started on this rubbish remark of unbearable uselessness. Ignore what bobby said just now. These things are happening specifically to you for specific reasons. This is not just some random internet happenstance. And you have more options other than “mute”. Other options just require more effort.

Going to assume sarcasm.

This is not the reason that this is happening to you. It is happening to you because you are on the internet.

All you can do is mute. You literally have zero other options.

It should have its badges revoked since it cannot run on all computers, and kong is so big on letting everyone earn everything.

(I don’t actually care about the badges, but if they want to be consistent, it should not have badges)

On that basis Bullseye (Interstellar Marines) should have its badges revoked because the developer isn’t willing to update the unity requirement of the game so later computers using more up to date unity cannot play it.

I can’t play that game either, it should have it’s badges revoked too.

Inferno Legends runs so badly that it makes Wartune look fully optimized.

Seriously, the game is practically unplayable.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle game badges

That article is one persons opinion. He is not wrong, but he is also not objectively right.

All games serves a purpose. Playing games that you are not too fond of simply because they have badges is a way of challenging yourself. You take pride in earning many or all of the badges and it makes you feel good. Given enough time, however, the passion for that leaves you, just like anything else in life. I use to be a badge hunter, now I have no interest in badges. Do I regret the time “wasted” on it? Of course not. It was merely one of the thousands of phases I will go through in my life.

I currently play a lot of mobile games. Many of those games could be broken down like this: " I must earn this upgrade, too earn that upgrade, to earn the one after it……oh I am maxed out, time to play a new game". One of the games I play most is Clash of Clans. Every time I raid, or attack in a war to get resources, I am just upgrading more things so that I can upgrade them later. You are literally always upgrading because the cap takes a very long time to hit.

Thing is though, is that you are gonna have a hard time putting hundreds, if not thousands of hours into a game if you do not genuinely enjoy it. I play games that are fun, and I do not play games that are not fun. I would like to assume that most people follow that basic idea.

If a game has no upgrade system and is entirely skill based, then sure, that type of game appeals to some, and that is alright as well. I am not one of these people, as I am not very competitive, but to each their own.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle game badges

Idle games should get badges if they meet rating and api requirements.

Quite a few do meet those reqs.
