Topic: Kongregate / New tool to find easiest/hardest badges

Using number of plays leads to misleading results, even if only for the fact that the game could gained a fair number of plays before it received badges. I’d say a more accurate way to determine easiest/hardest badges would be to divide the earn count by the number of days the badge exists (average earn count per day basically). Compare the easy badges from Learn to Fly 1 & 2 for instance: the former has been earned somewhat more but it’s also about 2 years older so its average earn count would be lower than the latter.

By the way, the easy badge from Toss the Turtle has been earned over a million times now. Quite a bit of a milestone there.

So multiple screens as one image where the total combined value of all kills exceeds 100 ? Not a bad idea actually, I suppose I could give that a try.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

Personally, I found both hard badges to be rather lenient. For the second one you can just use the clock map (since it’s the first one to be unlocked) and spam bomb towers from wave 40 or so onward. Like so:

As for Begone Guerra, is there any way to prove you’ve met the requirements for the medium badge (100 kills total) ? You cannot see your all-time kills (not that I know of at least) and the kill counter in a match resets after each game.

The only good thing about this game is the music from the title screen (same composer as Sonny 1 & 2).

Funny, I actually thought the ‘disabled’ medal was the easiest. Scraped hits from the Flak Tower count toward the
disabled counter, while hits from the EMP tower, ironically, do not. Just upgrade the flak and that other
tower which restores energy to all, keep flak tower firing pretty much the whole time and you will have the
disabled medal long before the other ones. Point of comparison:

Maik, do the Impossible for MAD. Since you need to hit 2000 missiles to get the platinum medal for your 2000th badge.

Reminds me of that other double points weekend a few years back where a certain Impossible badge was worth 120 points. Props if you know which one it is.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

The Hard badge for Backyard Monsters is now broken as well. Can’t say I’m surprised.

And another thing, unless I’m missing something obvious here, it looks like the 3 badges from Caesary no longer show up in the badge browser (the default badge browser, not BadgeMaster/SavageWolf). Seems like the unobtainable badges are finally getting removed, better late than never I suppose.

The default avatars look a bit different because their resolution has been changed. When you right-click > view image you’ll see the image at the full resolution (works for some non-default avatars too). Not like it really matters anyway.

G-Switch Hard is indeed 2500, and I agree that it’s rather on the easy side for a hard badge.

I assume the more lenient requirements for several badges is to compensate for the somewhat increased difficulty caused by the touch/tilt controls. Might also explain why there are no mobile Impossibles.

Thanks, looks a lot neater that way. Didn’t know that hyphens would mess up the formatting like that.

Nice reference to what may well be the best 2D fighting game ever made. And yes, that was without googling.

Topic: Kongregate / [Archive] Badge of the Day 2012

I can say with certainty that when I completed all battles, a few days back, enemies never used their global card more than once. Although it might be possible that a potential second one is used when a certain condition is met, like the passing of a given timespan. Even so, that problem could be resolved by bringing two Parting Gifts.

This doesn’t works well as (1) enemy will change the global card (2) spam peasants lags shit I cannot even move my cursor

(1) Parting Gift should be played after enemy has use their global, they will only use it once. (2) Put the quality on ‘low’ and it won’t lag as much.

In regards to todays game, a 4-Rogue team is horribly overpowered, just like in the original. Breezed though it with maximum difficulty mods.

Topic: Kongregate / What is your least favorite (popular-ish) Game on Kongregate?

TDP4.

Without a doubt the most abysmal game I’ve had to sit through for the badges. Poor concept, even worse execution; lag/connection issues, grind based gameplay, horribly underpowered starter weapons and not to mention the most moronic playerbase I’ve seen in a multiplayer game.

Then again, I dislike pretty much every (badged) multiplayer game.

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

Assuming the Caesary link in the OP leads to the same game version that used to be on Kong before the takedown, an idea could be to allow the badges for it to be awarded manually. As in, one sends a screenshot to an admin that shows both the game (with the badge requirements met) and another browser tab that shows you are logged in on Kong.

That, or perhaps allow them to be awarded when you have a high percentage of all badges (say 95%).
