Topic: Swords & Potions / Chat Connection Issue

I’ve been having the same problems, but only recently. There’s been no change in ports or location for me.

Topic: Bloons TD 5 / In Game Achievement System

I don’t see how this would contribute much to the game. We already have the ranking system and money to buy Special Agents, and this just makes things more complex. I don’t support this.

Topic: General Gaming / Kingdom Rush 2

We need a bigger story. Kingdom Rush was great with the tracks, towers, gameplay, speed, pretty much everything. I want a sort of repeat with a better story. I don’t even remember what we were fighting for or against in Kingdom Rush.

You’re implying that they want to. I would argue that the vast majority of people who are skilled enough to discover that information on their own would want to keep it a secret, and make everyone else discover it on their own.

Contrary to popular belief, more information is not always a good thing.

I agree with this. I know I’ve completed a great many games with my own self-made strategies, not looking at guides or wanting to put up guides. There are of course, people on YouTube who flaunt their wins, but how many people actually watch those? Where would the discovery of finding it out yourself be if there was a wiki with everything?

Again, I like wiki’s for a great many things, especially long-term gaming, but most of the games on this site are too short for anyone to want to put some Wiki efforts in. As for the longer games, they have their own forums and wikis on the developer’s site, so I really don’t see the point.

Topic: Kongregate / About the Kongregate Wiki

I think wiki’s are great, but for a site like Kong, I’m more hesitant. Kongregate has a multitude of games and a multitude more being added every week. If strategies and help are in place, they are usually in the top comments or even the recent comments. (Or in the forums for a larger game) As for finding a new badged game, games like Badge Master easily fulfill that. I frankly don’t see the need.

This is similar to why the “Ultimate Kong Database” type blogs and sites die. There is simply little need. I won’t participate in this wiki-editing process, but that’s just me.
