Is there a list of Kongpanions? I’m not sure if I missed one or not.

But hey – go ahead. Keep trying to justify the idea that just because it’s easy to make copies of digital stuff, it’s all cool…

Because obviously the FBI is always right.

Topic: Wartune / Copyright Infringment

You can call it what you want but it would still be wrong to call it theft due to both dictionary and legal definitions. Also copyright infringement would only be truly bad in cases like Wartune that use stuff to make a profit.

True. And in China copyright infringement is running rampant and no measures against it are enforced because the market is too big to be ignored. Bill Gates once said that about 97% of all Windows OS there have not been paid for.

I would call BS on that claim since there’s no way they would be able to find that out. Maybe he just meant China though.

The reality is that copyright infringement IS theft. It’s just that it’s become so easy and cheap for people to do it that they think it’s their right to take stuff that isn’t theirs, call it “piracy” and pretend it’s OK because Jack Sparrow is k00l as a pirate. It’s called “intellectual PROPERTY” for a reason, and it’s still theft.

Nope. Once again you copy something when you infringe on copyrights. In order for it to be theft something has to be TAKEN. There is a huge difference between COPYING and TAKING. This isn’t just an dictionary definition. Even legally it isn’t called theft.

GrindQuest certainly didn’t do a huge profit, if any at all (maybe the developper received a small fee from Kong ? Apart from that, it’s a 100% free game).

And it wasn’t developped by a company, but by a lone programmer.

I mostly wanted to point out that the 2 games weren’t handled the same way, apparently.

Or, possibly, Wartune developpers paid some cash to Bethesda (or whatever company) so they could use the music from Morrowind (or whatever game). How can we know they didn’t ?

I was merely mentioning the fact that even if a game doesn’t make a profit out of someone else’s work, it still lacks creativity and for that, can be blamed somewhat… But anyway, the point is that if Wartune DID pay Bethesda and all other developpers they used art/music/stuff from, it would be in the credits, which isn’t obviously. Therefore, there is here Copyright Infringement.

And as for what Kegfarms said, it has more to do with semantics (and maybe law and court vocabulary) than reality. Of course you don’t steal physical objects, but stealing other people’s ideas is, for me, stealing nonetheless !

Nope. The reality is copyright infringement isn’t theft. To describe it simply is that copyright infringement makes a copy of something while theft actually takes something. Also you don’t steal ideas when you pirate. Hell, you don’t even make a copy of their ideas. That would be plagiarism and not copyright infringement.

As any paying service/game/intellectual property, from the moment you make profit out of someone else’s work, that DOES harm !
As a WoW gamer, I find it pretty lame for other companies to try and make profit out of Blizzard’s numerous years of hard work (unless said “GrindQuest” was completely free and intended as a fan-based parody… but even so… one could just be creative and make his/her own work and effort to not steal from others)
Just my opinion though… Well… maybe not, since THERE ARE laws protecting against copyright theft.
Personally, I pay my games (be it on Steam, iTunes, PS3 or X360) and I find it really annoying to see such things either as piracy (from users point of view) as they don’t support developpers who DID work hard to bring things we enjoy, or copyright infringment as it violates the very work other did !

Anyway, since Kong and R2 doesn’t seem to care… Who am I to disagree ! Oo

Copyright infringement is not theft.

If you really run out of inventory space, the game does not prevent you to receive the items you’re given automatically like arena rewards or loot from the treasure chests in the wild but will send them to your mailbox. You have three days to retrieve them, which should be enough to make some room ;)
As for gear I don’t need, I salvage it as soon as possible for refinement stones, synthesize as much as possible and sell everything else. As a result, I’m fine with my inventory space.

Doesn’t work for multiplayer dungeons though. Pain in the ass to have to clear inventory mid dungeon just to pick up something.

Yeah because obviously ruining games because of the actions of a few people is the smart thing to do.

Publicly posting about this won’t yield any different results, then. Ask them what the reason was and take that reason to heart.

Admins/moderators never give answers on any site. Basically they get in a position of power and think they are always right no matter what.

I know this is the wrong thread but I can’t find the removed badges thread that use to exist.

This game is being shut down so the badges won’t be valid anymore.

Doing more damage is better so QM isn’t really that useful. QM is especially bad on raids like Cara.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: Backend changes

The update screwed everything up. All game screens are incredibly cluttered because comment sections and adds all pop up in the background then it creates a small game window. Badges were also much better on the actual game page and not doing it through the achievement tab that nobody used unless they got a badge.

In the first part, you again make the mistake of assigning numbers where none are known.
Grune: 10 drops, 4 × 2 SP each
Bella: 9 drops, 1 × 2 SP + 1 × 5 SP
The odds of getting a 2SP Orange from Grune is unlikely to be 4/10. The odds of getting a 5SP Orange from Bella could be 1% or 80%. Nothing else you said matters without a reasonable estimate of the odds of getting each Orange item after all the unique items are removed.

“you should say up front that you’re not guiding people to make characters that are particularly good at anything.”
My guide is designed for long-term playing. That’s why it focuses on gaining AP = hitting NM raids for 1/2 FS.

For short-term playing such as getting the Badges, should focus on gaining SP = tagging or barely hitting Normal raids. Forget about Energy because it doesn’t help towards the Badges and won’t produce results before the Badges are gained.

Yes, I should mention that. Thanks

You should seriously just stop. You obviously don’t know anything about this game.
