Topic: Kongregate / Free Kreds? Free Kreds, and points too! (August 2014)

Originally posted by 123aaa789:

For those of you who don’t appreciate the 1 Kred, it’s a sponsorship thing, so they’re given a certain amount of money from the sponsor and they return in in the form of Kreds to users. By giving out 1 Kred rather than 5 Kreds, they can give to five times more users. You’re free to just not watch the video and instead leave the Kreds to be claimed by other users, if it’s a problem that it’s only 1 Kred being freely given to you.

I don’t care what the reason is. Imo, giving away 1 kred makes you look worse than giving no kreds. It makes you look cheap. That can’t be good for business.

I’d rather it just have been 20 points :P

Topic: Kongregate / What's with the flood of idle games?

Idle games are for the person who wants to make progress, but not actually spend the playing hours to make progress.

It’s more a product of a decline in browser gaming.

This video that famous youtuber Pewdiepie made. He gave a link to a game here on kongregate, you can thank him for the site overloading.

Well sure, there will be a temporary surge anytime one of the most popular people on the internet link to something.

Something more useful, like a picture of a pony.

Topic: Kongregate / Does anybody else hate - / + comments?

I always have treated it as a way to respond to the dev. It’s virtually useless using it as a way to talk to others, especially if it’s a rather popular game that gets many comments.

soccer physics sucks.

Just pick any random game with api, and it would be a better choice for badges most likely.

Someone with more badges should have an advantage over a newer player. We can’t all be equal, because that is not fair either.

I treat everyone very neutralish until I have a reason to believe otherwise.

That is one of about 9000 reasons I would be a terrible mod.

Topic: Kongregate / Okay... that's it... get rid of that annoying RATE THIS GAME popup that overtakes the chat room! Updated 11th Aug!

Well good news: They aren’t ignoring messages about all three issues, because they listened to the complaints about the popup. Now they’re just ignoring messages about two. :)


For the badge of the day one, there are multiple ways around it, such as opening the homepage in a new tab and opening the game from there, or just getting the BoTD first thing when you log on, like I do, or saving your game more frequently so that leaving the page isn’t a loss.

I don’t see how fans cause you to get more game messages. I may only have a quarter of the number of fans you have, but they don’t spam me at all. Am I missing something here?

In some games, you get a pm if someone is inviting you to play that game if they have already added you. Blocking the game seems to disable that game from showing up again.

Rating the game poorly isn’t an effective way to protest this – we don’t see your rating.
Basically, this exists because we’re trying to recommend games more effectively and accurately, and to do that we need to know what kinds of games you like/dislike. Inaccurately rating a game with 1 star only hurts the developer of the game and your own recommendations.
If you really dislike this (or any feature), talk to us! Don’t just be passive-aggressive.

I personally don’t know much of anything about the future of this popup, but you can actually make a difference if you feel strongly about it. We listen to your feedback.

We already know how this works. The 2% or whatever of people who post say what they want, then you just say “oh, but we are psychics and thus we know what the 98% of people who give zero feedback want”. You only listen to feedback if it’s what you want to hear.

It is certainly mean spirited, but if people are rating 1s as a way to protest this change, then the devs have only the admins to blame for this. I place no fault on the player who rates a 1.

I just refuse to rate when it pops up and hit the X to close it. There you go, feedback without words in opposition to it. Hahaha! Evil shenanigans.

You clicked something related to it though, and in the admins odd ball data collecting logic, that means you supported it.

I find most mmos tolerable on mobile because of how much more convenient it is to play them.

I am most likely going to play game of thrones mobile, even though I did not like the regular version.

For something that is nearing it’s 20th birthday, Pokemon is as strong as ever.

If I had to give it to someone, I would give it to Tukkun since he made my favorite kong game. The only reason I quit anti-idle is because my backup got corrupted and I lost a 70 ascension file, but that isn’t his fault :P.

If you play lets say “God of War: Ascension” do you think: ‘Meh, its a game from 2005. Sony is dying.’ ?

Sony ≠ Kongregate

Flash games are really hard to judge by the year they were made. There are too many restrictions with flash that prevent you from really going past a certain ceiling.

Topic: Kongregate / Stop letting level 1s post in the fourms!

Kong level is completely worthless. It exists merely to trick people into thinking that they are making progress so that it increases their chances of getting addicted(which is a smart move). It does not mean a dang thing as far as who is a valuable member though. I was 62 for over a year(ticked to 63 mostly on botd) and have absolutely zero motivation to get 65 because it is worthless.

The minor benefit in putting a restriction in would not offset the inconvenience that newer players would feel. I have seen almost no spam on here in my 3 years that I would classify as bothersome.
