Topic: General Gaming / Kong vs Steam

Originally posted by Holy2334:

So I’ve noticed a general trend on steam lately that most of the popular flash games that we see on Kong are on steam now. The big differences is that the majority of the flash games that have moved on to steam you have to pay for unlike here where its free. However the steam version generally has more content in it than its flash counter part. Some examples are…

  • EBF4
  • Bloons TD 5
  • Shellshock Live
  • Creeper World 3 Arc Elemental
  • Doodle God
  • No Time To Explain.
  • Nerdook’s reverse dungeon game.
  • Adventure Capitalist and Clicker Heroes (both are free on steam).

So which do you prefer? A better quality game that you have to pay for, or a the free flash counterpart that you know and love? Which one do you think is better? If you are a dev that has made a steam version of their flash game, what was the reason & which one do you prefer? Which flash game would you like to see a steam version of if any? Lots of stuffs to think about :o

I’ve played a couple of these on both Steam and Kong.

Creeper World III: Way better on Steam. So many maps!
EBF4: I’m glad I got it on Steam, but the main difference is pretty small between the two versions.
Reverse Dungeon: This is a normal ole Nerdook game. Pretty fun for a couple hours. If it was posted on Kong, it would’ve fit right in with his other games. My guess is Steam is more profitable for him.

I haven’t played it but Rebuild 3 is on Steam too. Anyone have any thoughts on that one?

I’d love to see Mardek series (completed!) on Steam, but I know that isn’t going to happen since the Dev said he’s rebooting the series.

" Fight AI PvP Decks, we want to implement a new AI mode in a future patch, however the game will be live on mobiles (Android & iOS) in 10 days approx, so PvP queues should be going much faster."

Hooray! Will there be a way to link my Kong account and my phone?

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Suggestions

You don’t want to up it too high or people will use it to farm (start pvp, surrender, profit).

I’d love to see cards that drop off of pvp wins or by having a certain score or something. Right now the only reason to do pvp is for the daily quests and for bragging rights.

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Bugs

Thanks! I’ve played a lot more adventure since then, and I haven’t had any more freezes.

As I have played more as well, I think the buffs, etc, work well as they are now.

Topic: Heroes Empire: TCG / Bugs

The game froze on the last battle of Avalon Hard. Very annoying since I lost all my loot.

Edit: Also, when using Joan of Arc (she + attack/hp every turn), if you upgrade a unit that has been buffed by Joan, that unit will lose the buff (so in effect, I’ve had unit I’ve promoted end up weaker with the loss of the buffs).

Yes! If you haven’t checked out the Steam version, give it a try. More Creeper goodness. Some very hard maps there too.

I started when the game was called Cry Havoc, and I think T5s have always been around.

Naw, they were released about a week into the Beta. There’s a couple posts referring to that.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [to devs]when you will chamge the MM in bounties, and the way SP is calculated?

MM in bounty is still very bad, 44 battles, 27 had karkinos… i am a poor f2p, how is this even possible?

same situation, be careful Dev, this will reduce the community and the money for you

Matchmaking in bounties is purposely difficult. They are trying to encourage low and f2p folks to purchase units. It isn’t a coincidence that at the beginning of a bounty an awesome new unit is usually released (krak for this one). In other words: No issue. Works as intended.

Call of War is the game they were discussing. I haven’t tried it personally but since you reminded me, I’m going to their website now.

Topic: Global Assault: General / Will there ever be more F2P base units?

Originally posted by StumblingSkunk:

I’ve been waiting, patiently, hoping there will be more fusions for F2P players. I feel I have progressed as much as possible in this game, unless I want to spend HUNDREDS. With the additions of T7 the F2P / P2W gap is ridiculous now. I don’t feel bad walking away from this game because I think I’ve completed the Free Version.

MK confirmed awhile back that the devs will not be adding more f2p base units. Basically, he said that they believe this will end up eating into the income the game makes.

Topic: Global Assault: General / (To Devs If There Are Any Real Ones Here Not Just Robots) Reasonable New Reward Tiers (Pissed Off Content and Feedback) AKA Global B.S.

My 2 cents. You still want to sprinkle in some of the older f2p units in the top 25 or top 50 (crusher, Jackrabbit, etc) since there are people who are f2p who are trying to make some of the older f2p units, etc.

The problem I have with the rewards being too powerful for top 1 or 3 is that the same guilds usually get top 3 and this benefits a small minority of players. I think for Guild Bounty we probably want to avid vanguards being given out but an ember crate is perfectly acceptable (or pick a unit that is ‘ember’ class vs. a random one).

Or maybe give a quad five star with a trait to the group that gets first. May I humble suggest a Quad Shield with plus 2 hps?

Great if Dcon gets first then we have to face Xman using Rams! …I assume Xman will start to immediately use it.

Originally posted by ZeroZone01:

So what is the exploit?

I’d be curious to know what it was as well. As long as it has been fixed at least.

Originally posted by Zulu__Dawn:

DEVSMAKE sure you also check EVERY GUILD that was previously CRAP in BOUNTY RANK and then they are now MAGICALLY fantastic in bounty rank!!!

Hint Hint!!!


Yes! Check out that guild in first. I’ve never even heard of them! Something like Dee-seppy-cons. Sounds very suspect to me.

How many players per game? Looks pretty fun – I’ll check my work schedule (I don’t want to go inactive on you). When do you need to know by?

I assume I don’t suppose you can play via phone as well (that helps on the days I’m not near a computer for 12+ hours).

It is quite shitty to have legitimate guilds who did not have the opportunity to get the T7 through actual tactics (and quite stronger), fix the exploit and then let the cheater guilds keep their prizes. You kind of have to act on this.

We will be investigating the use of the exploit further. Specifically seeing who used it. We are digging in.

Ban them!! (Unless they are whales in which case: Ignore It!!)
