Yellow and Blue coin show G instead of Y/B in Battle Arena

Battle Arena coin drops have a G on them regardless of the color of the coin.

Topic: Kongregate / [Cards] Letters on upper right

It just means that it’s a re-released card, to have some “Collector’s Value” on the originals.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] [Kongai] Beta Test Out?

To test only those with all the cards who also went to pax would mean we would be testing… uhhh… maybe a dozen people. There is a random card function, so anybody can play with all cards (albeit only for a few matches).

I thought it was easy to understand that if there would be less that 50 players, then the players would be all but 1, 2 ect. cards until it goes over the wanted number of players and then choose the testers from there.

Also, Kongai is still a bad name :x :P

And I’m afraid hand-picking based on your criteria would devolve into a popularity with the staff contest

I believe that this says something about what you think of the Kong. staff.

I think that you should’ve considered some things to shorten the list, like for example, only accepting those will all of the cards (including revisions, limited and “event” versions ala holidays and PAX) to properly test that all of them work properly for everybody, this alone would’ve probably reduced the number greatly and is reasonable (although it would still be possible to just give the players all of the cards, this saves some hassle).

By the way, I’m curious; have all of the members who got Beta access beta tested yet?

That’s an…“odd”, to be polite (screw it, it’s very stupid imo) way of choosing who gets to beta test. I thought points were completely worthless right now, and that that was rather known, so most people don’t really give a damn about points.

Oh well, if the stupid system has a great reward, then I might as well waste my time doing something that I do not want. Just like real life work? I think not, but I digress. My guess is that the people who chose who would get to test had to be “very dedicated to Kongregate” or something and they didn’t have much time/thought to think of something better.

Stop ranting Hitaro.
But I know I would’ve complained even if I was chosen Hitaro.
Damn, you’re getting schizophrenic, Hitaro, stop trying to make a joke every time you post.

Topic: General Gaming / Cards: Good or Bad?

The cards are meant to be as balanced as possible. If you missed some cards, you shouldn’t worry much, it just means that you have a few less options to mix up.

I doubt it.

-The cards have different color borders, therefore they can not equip the same items

-The most important aspect of the cards are the attacks, but they are hidden until the card game comes out (except for Rumiko, the very first card)

-There have been many cards with the same stats before

Also, I noticed that the Health/Energy meters have been mirrored…

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] [Kongai] Card game FAQ - Please read before making a thread

I really hope Bruce doesn't turn into a bratty spammer once he's a beta tester/the game comes out and that he's just sucking up to the *MAX* :x I'm also wondering if Bruce works/has worked with Sirlin or that he's just a fan(boy?)... But anyway, that is all off topic :P ----------------------------------- Seems interested. Maybe you should write a... uh... "simpler" version of rules for the game, or a general resumé of it for users who are too lazy to read the "oh so menacing" rules page? And you should also link to a list of total cards or something for the curious new users, some user's card list that has all the cards for example.

Topic: Kongregate / Can there be new types of badges, or more cards?

The cards are released weekly, every card is supposed to be equal (card X will not be ultimately better than card Y), so there’s no need to “make it harder to get it”, and when the card game will be (eventually) released, there will be a way for players to get cards of past weeks.

Does this answer?

Though I do want to ask what this has to do with badges, since you don’t mention them in your post.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai

There’s a question I’ve wanted to ask for a while; when beta testing for a game, would the developers rather you play normally, or would they rather want some, if not, all testers to go out of their way to find glitches or exploits in the game?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Kongai

Sadly, community stuff has taken a backseat lately to my other job responsibilities that supposedly don’t exist. Maybe it’s time for a title change. I wonder what the payscale is like for people who negotiate Flash sponsorships and make challenges/achievements in Flash games? Oh, wait, I think I’m literally the only person in the world with this job… curses!

Aren’t those part of the job of a community manager? I thought those came naturally. It seems as if you think I think your job is simply “managing the community”, e.g. keeping the forums from turning to flame-fests.
I should stop thinking about what other people think I think of them…

Kongai stands for…

That doesn’t even make any sense. It’s more like you’re trying to make up a random definition to support the name. I’m honestly wondering if you’re serious or are making some lame joke (imo, of course there will be some people that will think it is funny).

Also, I want to emphasize this, since it’s been ignored. Why? I honestly have no clue. Closest is “it’s been popular at the beginning of the last thread”, but that’s not a valid reason.

We had actually wanted to go with Kongai: —, but apparently Kongai in Japanese has something to do with extramarital sex, so we’re not really as into it anymore. :(

I may be going at a tangent (if I do, please tell me), but I believe one of the reasons why it was popular in the last thread was because it “sounded Asian”. Not only is that a bad reason to use the name (whether the name is good or not), but if somebody wants to imitate some other language by saying random words that may “sound like it”, you are going to get laughed at, especially when it’s made public that what you are saying is nonsense. Who cares if 99.99% of the community doesn’t know it, if there’s one single person that knows and realizes it, whatever you are doing will be considered a mockery.

I personally think that no matter how you pronounce it, it sounds bad.

Of course, there is the question of replacing the name. Naturally, it will be hard to name something new (How the hell did they find “Kleenex” for tissue paper?), but letting the forums decide is rather iffy. I’d rather opp to keep “Kongregate Card Game” until a better name is decided. There might be a contest at some point to create a name, filtered so no obviously bad or vulgar \cough/ names are possible. Maybe the Kong staff should hire an etymologist to figure out what name would best suit the card game. I’d volunteer to take some time off from doing what I want to trying to find a proper name if people want me to (heck, I will now, with honest serious thought and time, since I do not want to get stuck with Kongai).

Or should we move this to another thread? The thread is discussing about the card game, and this thread shows that the name is “official” now. So I’ll discuss this here until further notice (mod response)

Hitaro- lol you never know who could be doing the card game. for all we know it could be emily :)

Actually, we could just ask who the programmers are. All I know is that David Sirlin is designing the game, and that Udon is providing the art.

haha you better hope Greg (or whoever in in charge of the card game) doesn’t read that you’ll ruin your chances XD

Just so you know, greg is just a community manager. Sure, being a community manager is a lot, but I don’t think greg has another job at Kong.

And the name still sucks :X

Topic: Kongregate / Hard badges that take a while, but aren't really hard

Of course Raw Time can get you all the badges etc, but it’s not completely necessary to enjoy Kongregate. It’s not like points and badges have use yet, and the cards are usually quite short. Kongregate is enjoyable for 15 mins a week or hours a day. Why don’t we kick out all the olympic athletes who spend all their time training, and let ordinary people win?

Okay, let me rephrase that so you won’t misunderstand again (I hope).

Why not get rid of the silly concept of giving people rewards just because they have a lot of free time?

Yes, by all means, let’s get rid of the thing that truely seperates Kongregate from other Load-up-on-as-many-Flash-games-as-possible websites. :)

What?

Topic: Kongregate / Metagame rulesheet, updated screenshot, and full Rumiko details

I think it would be pretty cool to make your Kongregate level play into the card game somehow. Maybe some limitation or something, like certain cards are only useable if you have a certain level or maybe a deck power rating like each level adds so many addition points for the max power rating and each card has a certain value to limit how many powerhouse cards you can put in your deck, or maybe something like there is a card shop and your points decide your starting cash and you can bet on matches and if you ever run out of money you can go earn a badge or two to get you going again.

Hell no, that would be a horrible idea.

Not to mention that there are no “powerehouses” or “card x is in every way better than card y” (or that seems to be the plan, at least)
