Go to wings, upgrade, choose how much to spend and spin the wheels. If you can’t do that, then you aren’t high enough level.

Topic: Kongregate / Another Generic Giveaway

Most of my favorite moments comes from multiplayer games…

Back when I played Tyrant and the first day that tournaments were released, I entered a sealed tournament and managed to get an almost perfect draw. Since tournaments were new, there were several hundred players which made for a fun time.

Reforge stones. Soul stones are easy to get with Bodyguard.

so, you can get 8 clovers per day, for 4 days, and thats 32 clovers if you finish everything.
so you need 300 clovers for the mount, or 200 for the blade. that means that you need to buy ~540 clover packs for 35 diamonds each to get the mount. thats 18900 diamonds just to get mount. what a great event. thank you for being so generous and not screeming “WE WANT MOAR MONEY!!!”. i can’t belive my luck for being online for this event, and spending at least 20 hours on this game to get 10 reforge stones. you’re the best!

Well, you also get by doing all the quests (per day): 2.5M gold, 80 stamina potions, 20k SP, and 200 Royale points.

Originally posted by troublemaker83:

Are you really expecting R2games to pay attention to this forum? Seems like all they do is post updates after they’ve already implemented them then forget about us. Don’t have high hopes for receiving your correct reward or some sort of compensation.

I also posted on their forums, submitted a bug report and sent them a private message. I’d give them a call, but for some reason, they haven’t given me their phone number. ;)

Topic: Blade Hunter / Contest grounds rewards incorrect

Hey R2,

Just so you know, the Contest Grounds event rewards were messed up.

I was top 30, and my rewards were 5 Quality Sprite Packs. I should’ve gotten 300 crystals, S-Sprite pack, etc. Are the correct rewards coming later?

I’m not the only one who experienced this error – sounds server wide.

Also, we are showing Jables as the Overlord when it should’ve been Draq.

Thanks for understanding, guys! I just put up a badge in Pulse. I got stuck a few times, and it’s probably harder than a typical medium badge, but I don’t think it’s hard enough to be a hard badge either.

Time for the Chinese New Year’s parade in San Francisco, but I think I can get Glean 2 up by tomorrow.

Thanks, Greg! Happy year of the Horse!

I would be absolutely flabbergasted if Greg was silly enough to badge this game. I really don’t think there’s anything to worry about.

If they wouldn’t badge Abobo’s Big Adventure (which got a write up in Game Informer even), then I doubt Flappy Birds will get any.

Topic: Kongregate / The death of impossibles

Originally posted by greg:

Most games themselves are not very well-suited for an impossible badge. Dojo of Death was probably the best candidate we’ve had in a while, but I felt that a hard badge was sufficient since the game starts to get a little chaotic one you get past 200 kills or so (which I personally managed to do).

I will try to keep an eye out for games and tasks that would be well-suited for an impossible badge. I’m not entirely happy with my track record with this difficulty level of badge, so I’d probably make a forum thread and get some feedback if I think I might have a good candidate in mind. In general, though, impossible badges are probably never going to be very common.

That sounds excellent, and I’m all for rare Impossible badges (Rather than have tons of Impossible badges).

I dont understand the fear of making impossible badges. I do not agree at all with gregs opinion on badging games. They need to hire a second person with conflicting opinions so that we get more variety.

Well, hold on a second. Greg is the one who made most of those great impossibles in the first place. I think he feels that a lot of the impossible badges were failures. Personally, I think the only impossible that should never have been is the Balloon Invasion, which requires nothing but a lot of time. The others are all worthy. A lot people cite the Pandemic 2 impossible as an impossible badge that is too easy, but this is bullshit. Almost everyone who found it easy (myself included) used the walkthrough. The others got lucky.
The Mardek imp is also used an example of a badge that’s just long, but again I disagree. I thought the difficulty was sufficiently high for sufficiently long to qualify as an impossible. Then there’s Focus/Meat Boy, both given as examples of impossibles that are earnable in a short amount of time, but most players would disagree. And though they’re short, both games contain levels capable of inducing rage.
Other impossible badges are criticized for being overly dependant on luck, usually Ultimate Assassin 3. yeah, you need to get lucky on all of the last levels. But you also need skill. If you fail 10 times, you’re probably just unlucky. If you fail 1000 times, you’re just doing it wrong.

Point is, there’s not much wrong with the existing impossible badges.

I enjoyed the Pandemic 2 and Mardek badges (there is a lack of good turn based rpgs as it is!). I generally don’t go after an Impossible badge unless it is a game that I really like.

Okay, Space Flash Arena badges are up now. The medium is a little messy, but I think it works well enough.

Valthirian Arc 2 badges are up now. I’m going to see if I can finish Space Flash Arena before heading home. Probably just an easy and a medium, since the game balance gets a little out of whack when I try to define a task that’s actually difficult.

Thanks! It feels like the Golden Age of badges.

I’ve recently made a conscious decision to spend significantly less time on Flash sponsorships and significantly more time on badges. It’s not exactly a golden age for Flash sponsorships right now, but I can still give you all a golden shower of badges! Er, wait…

Hooray! As Kent Brockman said, we are all taking golden showers!

Quick edit: The easy badge unlocks at defeating Minotaur (not Mars as the badge description says).

Being a mod is an awesome job. Would be even better if you could polish mines or swim in radioactive waters. Well… can’t have it all.

I misread mines as mimes.

Anyway, Tyrant has an odd user dynamic. One of the reasons that I decided to leave.

I am missing 4 too (and likely this is the only medal I didn’t auto-get or only had 1 badge to get). I don’t think much of most of the games on this medal so getting the last 4 badges is going to be a chore.

No puzzle games this year :C

I guess the games I like are very different from the games most people on this site like now. That makes me ASadPip.


I’m missing three: EBF4, Last Door 1 and Crystal Story II…

Well, it’s now possible to see what the seven BotDs for the week will be when the new Kongpanion is released (on the Kongpanions page), so on Monday (or Tuesday too, since that’s when you were first able to get on) you could have seen what they were and planned accordingly.

That’s what I did on Monday.
