This would have been correct six months ago. You haven’t even been here, how do you know what is stagnating Kong?

Topic: Battle Dawn / More Special Eras

Kong is very boring nowadays, I think one way to fix that would be more special eras. This forum will be were people brainstorm logical, plausible special eras. Then we can approach Tom and Ilona with these ideas and try to spice up Kong more.

A few eras I was thinking of was Smaller Mars, Zombie (Different than Old Zombie) and a Lightning Round.

Smaller Mars: Exactly what the name says, instead of making an era bigger, make it smaller. Same amount of mines, but smaller map. This should in theory increase competition by proximity.

Zombie: This one is probably the most admin intensive. Two alliance’s place on the world, a few special chosen players in on, and the rest of the world in the other. The ‘zombies’ start in one area, the rest of the world everywhere else. The actual lay out of the map will be normal. The actual game play is unaffected, except for the colonies that Zombies take over are automatically put into their alliance. Mines, wells, and OPs can still be taken by anyone, but colonies are permanently a part of the zombies. The Humans win by surviving until the end of the era, which would be tick 1500 or something.

Lightning Round: Every player is given a bonus 15K metal and oil at tick 1, and a boost of 2.5K (Or a fairly similar amount) every 25 ticks. This would just give a super fast, super fun world were it would be more about the wars and such than the early game mine hunt.

Feel free to post feedback and any special eras you would like to have.

The Final Update: A fter many ticks of no sleep, intense back and forth spamming, running in circles looking like a fool,and lockdowns the era has come to a close. Fox-lead HE has come ahead and won the era. Good game, well played, and congratulations to the always honorable mister fox. Sorry about the backstab, nothing personal, just trying to win.

Topic: Battle Dawn / Earth 1 era 63

This era has featured virtually every aspect of a strategy game you could imagine. There have been massive armies, huge wars, spam waves, spy kills, missiles, subterfuge, and even betrayal.

The story of this era is told from my unbiased viewpoint. I do not know all the details, I know only what I experienced.

Early in the game, I was in YETI, lead at the time by Frosty, consisting of members :Frosty, HeeHee, Tiger, Myself, and ICON. ICON left very early on a quest to get R5, he was replaced with Bran. We weren’t taking the era seriously at first, just hoping for a second place era when DMWU made us angry. We initially were conquered, but we built up and launched spams periodically against DMWU until they were worn down.

I almost forgot, Tom released all relics very early with no defense and about 25 crystals on each.

So, when DMWU were offline I launched a huge spam wave and took Europ, Saudi, and piece of Asia, when they logged on they were tired of the constant harassment from the Kongregate Battle Dawn Community and generally quit. TS invaded Africa took control of most of it and killed the actual DMWU colonies.

At this point, we began warring with NWA for the control of Asia. TS had taken over North America and South America, had six relics and were not really doing much. We NAP’d them for aide against NWA and allowed them to build in our territory. By this time I had assumed leadership of YETI and were fully engaged in an overally fruitless war against NWA.

After a few dozen ticks of no gain, I convinced Capo to NAP with us, give us Asia, and bait in TS. He agreed under the stipulations that we give him second. We came to an agreement and TS made their move on NWA.

When TS armies started moving into Indonesia NOOBS, Bran, and I began our attack on TS. We attempted to sever their link to NA by attacking the Middle East but started the offensive too early. We got a quick, easy kill on Stalin’s army, and a few OPs, but TS recalled their armies back to Middle East and stalemated us. When I went to sleep that night, NOOBs, Bran, and I had all of our units on an OP.

Upon awaking the next morning, Khalia’s 30ish squads were 1 ETA from the OP. I decided we should move off and wait for more favorable conditions, but NOOBS assured me we’d win. We didn’t. We killed about 300 of Khalia’s 800 inf and lost 90 tanks and 300 inf. It was tragic, I was angry. Somewhere around this time, I changed the alliance to [RIP] Nelson Mandela in honor of Nelson Mandela.

Fortunately for me, ICON had succeeded in his R5 quest and was willing to help. Realizing Bran was dead, I made a tough decision and kicked him to allow ICON to join. He used his tanks on Khalia’s army, spied her and killed 500 inf with seven squads of mechs. At roughly the same time, or perhaps earlier, Doctor was banned. I enlisted the help of several other alliances who also began spamming and attacking TS. One of these allies was WRTC, formerly TL’s sub. My long time friend Frank infiltrated the sub and set up a giant spam network. He took all of Africa in less than twenty ticks. TS was falling apart and Creed decided to quit.

RIP had beaten TS.

Now there was a huge power vacuum that a lot of formerly weaker alliances tried to fill. BBYK and SD both had power surges and climbed firmly into the top three. RIP itself lost much power fighting in the constant wars and dropped form third place to fifth. NWA lost power from fighting TS and RIP but retained second place.

Stalin was trying to join RIP and at first was going to be given access if he agreed to kill Creed’s colony and grab the relics. I wanted the era over. Stalin at first agreed, but just at the cusp of his joining, he decided he didn’t want to backstab Creed and would only join an alliance that she would also join.

I didn’t have the room for the both of them, so I went to my alternative option, Frank. Frank had simultaneously offered both Creed and Stalin positions his alliance, which they accepted. Right before either of them joined, he left and joined RIP. NOOBS was kicked. We began to make our way towards NA and SA to kill Creed an get her relics. The era should’ve been a piece of cake.

DesertFox, who had set up in Middle East and was friendly with RIP, decided to invite Stalin, Creed, Nikhil, and India to his alliance. This was a problem, because it put the relics in the hands of a friendly alliance. Fox maintained that he would not attack RIP, but that he would also not turn over the relics.

This was unacceptable, everything RIP had worked for this era was for the win. They needed those relics. So RIP launched an attack against HE (Fox’s alliance) 7 ticks before Creed, Stalin, and Nik would’ve relocated into Saudi Arabia.

Little progress was made by either side, and Fox’s initial spam wave wasn’t defended against very effectively, but they were reclaimed. Creed took back SA, but couldn’t really get into Africa. She managed to get 16 squads into Europe, but has since been pushed back into NA.

So this is where we are now. Tick 1037 out of 1500. We have 463 ticks to get across the world and capture the relics floating more than 24 ticks from NA. We have superior income and armies as of now, but this era can still swing either way.

Good luck to both alliances, may the best alliance win.

As much as I hate it, 6 ticker would be the only possible thing for a game that big. Also if it’s full world then there needs to be a proportionate increase in mines/wells on the map if that’s possible. It would be ridiculous to gate across the map that is 4x the size of normal earth with the regular amount of mine… Just plain ridiculous.

Alliance size I don’t care about, but if it’s 4x the size of normal earth I’d say minimum of 10. This could be like the only time kong could actually have nice alliance sizes without it being total destruction. Even if the top 10 players in the game form an alliance, the other alliances will have time and space to grow before they get killed. It will be an interesting game. I’d like to see how much of an effect boosting would have with this large of a map.

I was just going to do that exact thing. And Routhy, since you are technically the admin I guess you get final say on which map we use. I’ll respect whichever decision you make.

I would still like to run for Europe.

Also, I’d advise that people who are going to participate start adding their names to the list. We need to know exactly how many players we can expect.

I also feel that sometimes players need to take matters into their own hands. I have no problem with Tom helping and giving his input, but when it comes down to it we’re the ones playing the world. I’ve already started the draft forum, please give your nominations.

It would be very stupid if this started on Christmas Day. I will not be able to really log on and enjoy the beginning. Also, Christmas is in the middle of Christmas break, which means we’d only be utilizing half. If you started it roughly a week before Christmas, that would give plenty of time for the era to progress and optimize competition through activity.

@Crooked Arrow: We should start the nomination process for captains as soon as possible. I’ll make a forum post for it later.

Eh, I think we should vote on the starting time as well. Christmas isn’t in the middle of my break. We get out on the 23rd. I don’t think we should switch the schedule around just for one person :P. You’ve to think of others, and not just yourself Paradoxes.

Also, Tom didn’t finalize the draft idea, it was just a suggestion from a member of the community. And in the past, BD doesn’t care what the community says :3.

Tom doesn’t make the alliances, the players do. Thus it doesn’t matter what Tom says about the draft idea.

Also I was using my own Christmas schedule as an example, I am aware that I’m not the only person in the world and I’m offended that you think I do Atlanta.

Edit: Actually answering the questions
1. Yes, I would love a BigEarth event. Around the perfect time as well.
2. Entire map. Makes for a longer era. Hopefully bigger wars, even if alliance size is 10.
3. Wouldn’t mine it being 6, but at least make it 6. Please?
4. Of course.

We should restrict to continents. If we don’t, the few playesr who have been winning consistently are going to get massive starts from their blues, and 4x the resources, AND everything their teammates get. We should also do a draft for it.
