Topic: Kongregate / Split test: New navigation!

Cool to finally be part of a split test. You should send a PM about that to inform users with more information IMO. Or put it on frontpage.

I preferred the previous versions better since it didn’t hide as much of the page you’re using, but it does offer some new overview I guess. Activity feed is weird since it only links to instead of actually showing the activity. Also I’m seriously missing the button to “http://www.kongregate.com/current_challenges”;. Badge of the day is also inconsistent : sometimes it shows something about powerup points, sometimes it doesn’t. It also doesn’t show if you already have the badge and/or have the daily bonus. For challenges it shows only one (should at least indicate that there are more)

EDIT : What was the minimum width this thing was designed for? It doesn’t seem to scale..

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Where can we vote to remove games from Kong?

@Mad_Machine : that’s interesting. I know Kong does track the frequency of your visits and duration, along with your spending (so they can track who’s a Whale – someone that spends hundreds of $$). Kongregate probably disregards all ratings of players that only played for a short duration.

^ Here IGG_Games is also promising users a reward if they vote high. Since they cannot know the individual rating of each player they’re tricking their players into giving a biased rating. That must be against the terms.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Texas HoldEm Poker Deluxe] Poker Deluxe comes to Kongregate! $300,000 Free Chips!

And nobody in this topic realizes that IGG_Games cannot possibly track if you gave it a five-star rating or not? They’re one of few developers that are tricking people into biasing the ratings! This has to be stopped!

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Where can we vote to remove games from Kong?

If you look at the best comments on these games:

http://www.kongregate.com/games/igg_games/dawn-of-darkness/comments?sort=best

It becomes pretty obvious we don’t want these any more on Kongregate. Is there any way to petition and get games or developers banned from Kong to stop them?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / Kongregate's Cancer: Ugly Pay-to-Win games

If their devs talks are focusing on ‘hooking the whales’; on making a game addictive and generating the most money without looking at the content or quality of the content.. I am very disappointed in the Kongregate I once knew

Watch this and be disgusted:

Topic: Dawn of Darkness / A thread to report the in-game issue, bug and so on

I’m constantly getting a “challenge failed- cooldown in process” error when I try to fight. Usually I have to wait like a second between fights in order for them to work. This is really slowing me down on process to the badge!

Can’t I turn it off in-game? Or couldn’t you guys remove that .. ‘feature’?

Topic: General (Westeros Discussion) / Private Message Spam

I don’t want to block the game, I want to prevent it from happening. It’s bad. And you should feel bad. There’s no other game in all of Kongregate that does this.

Topic: General (Westeros Discussion) / Private Message Spam

I can’t seem to find my old topic. I just want to raise the issue again: stop spamming my inbox with private messages. I’m not even playing this game anymore.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [The Grinns Tale] Disconnecting when dealing too much damage

In the Grinnfinite Dungeon I constantly get disconnected in the earlier levels (as early as level 3!!). Later, I replicated it (also in GD) when using a -defence potion on an enemy: instant disconnect.

It feels like this only happens when I deal ~ > 100 damage to enemies, but not always. Usually when I use my berzerker, who has an attack of 210.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Zombies Online] Who are they trying to scam?

Two posts removed by a moderator.. What kind of censorship is this? They did not contain any content that was against the terms.

For all of you who really want to discuss these so-called free to play games should read all chapters of this blogpost:

Stealing from young kids who have no idea of the value of money is criminal. Anyone else who is sane enough would not fall to this trap.

Topic: Kongregate / back yard monsters.. badged... wtf greg

I’m also a bigtime badge collector on Kong. Recent badges on games that can be played with Kreds is a very very sad change to see. When I see badges like the ones on Backyard Monsters appear I actually cry a little. And I’m afraid we’re not to blame GameStop this time!

Topic: Kongregate / Game Developers become Moderators?

That does not seem entirely fair. These developers of money-hungry games like Lord Of Ages, Heroes of Gaia, Utopia Kingdoms have gained Moderator status:

http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/Faffin
http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/lydias
http://www.kongregate.com/accounts/Thundergore

Does this seem fair to you? They’ll never moderate chat as other dedicated moderators.

(It would be nice to have it in the “Awards” section though.)

Nah.. I found the joker faces quite badly implemented. An award however is always nice
