Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Subforums!

Currently, the flagging system needs you to have permission in the subforum (i.e. forum moderators of 65 will not be able to check flags for the subforums unless also appointed as forum mods to them).

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / so, looks like there's some turmoil

Originally posted by trickyrodent:

Oh, and I should clarify something about flagged posts. The thing about being the guinea pigs lucky first forum to try out our new subforums feature is that you get to help us find all the bugs.

At the moment, there is a bug around flagged posts. Normally, moderators see a list of flagged posts for their forum; they can refer to it and process them. For the Tyrant mods, right now, that feature is broken. D: It should be fixed within a couple days; I let the devs know that we ran into this and that it’s causing problems. But in the meantime, cut the mods some slack if they aren’t processing your flagged posts.

You can work-around the bug temporary by appointing the new mods as mods for the sub forums as well. The reason the bug occurs is that they technically only are moderators for forum 65 according to the flag handling system.

Um, Sean. Sean. Sean. SeanSeanSeanSean.

That had nothign to do with assisting BW getting to #1

Well, it sort of did. Otherwise it would’ve died far sooner, and you would never have joined it.

Then it would have just been under the berzerkers name instead of BW and it would have been the exact same rise to #1 with the exact same players

And because you responded before my prior edit:

If you are going to treat that thread as the word of god, then:

All sharing in BW ceased prior to December 19, 2012, and prior to the first ascent that BW made to #1

As you can read further down the post, the sharing happened to prevent BW basically ending up like BW is doing now – in free fall.
Thus, the sharing obviously helped BW getting #1, since BW would never be a thing today if acc sharing wasn’t used to prevent its’ destruction, just like Shadow says

My own view on strongest faction ever? LoA.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / kapitalKs issue with new mods

The new mods are kinda new, they may have some issues at the beginning. So far it has gone OK imo, allthough you are very right on the off topic part, I mean just look, we have 4-5 AMA threads, some random “pooh” thread (wtf?), etc. Maybe this is a result of the game stagnating and people not feeling like talking about tyrant as much? Might as well create a tyrant-specific off topic forum then.

Anyway, I agree somewhat to the thread. I don’t agree to your posts usually being that constructive, and mostly agree to your post removals, but there is definitely some issues atm.

Also, keep in mind, if you see spam, you can always flag it, it will be taken care of in due time.

EDIT: ok, ralkk ninja’d me and made a better point than I did.

Why is it said that an alarm clock is going off when really its coming on?

When you set up the alarm, that’s when the alarm is on. It’s on, and it waits. When the allotted time arrives, it goes “off”, because it switches off afterwards.

I have never had an alarm clock that deactivates after one day of alarm.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Help rets with homework

Redshift is a prime example on Kong itself. Unlike Tyrant, Redshift did not survive Pescado’s stormtroopers.

Originally posted by SIRdumpALot:

http://developers.kongregate.com/docs/why-kong/dream-world-study

if you go there you will see…

Dream World has had success on both Facebook and Kongregate, though on a per-user level Kongregate has outperformed Facebook significantly. Lifetime ARPU on Facebook is $0.74, while on Kongregate it is over double that at $1.51. On a per paying user basis, Dream World has gotten a lifetime ARPPU of $118.39 on Kongregate, compared to only $41.84 on Facebook.

If you go to the actual game, you will see MAYBE 10-20 players in the game chat. How can they make that much revenu with so few players?

it is because bots playing the game dont go to the kong chat and are not visible there… so is bot gaming cheating is another question you need to asking.

but the fact is they make revenue otherwise you wouldent see it on any web site or be able to play it. there are ZERO games that do not need to have revenue inorder to at least keep the servers running.

This is not accurate, the study was made back when DW was actually popular.

Does games on kong on other places get forbidden as well?
In that case, VVVVVV. Otherwise, Tyrant. While I pretty much quit that game, I keep getting back to it because of friends, and there’s no other game on kong that has given me this much entertainment in various ways.

Topic: Kongregate / [New Feature] Subforums!

Elaborating on the bug JrJetu posted – from the main forum page (forum 65-tyrant in this case), the “view” link lacks the ?page=N identifier when a thread has multiple pages, and the direct linking to a post fails.

For example, with the “Bugs” thread.
Current: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/403917-bugs#posts-8224902-row
Correct: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/403917-bugs?page=2#posts-8224902-row

Also, a feature suggestion – on forums with subforums, show the full “path” to a thread. Currently, you see this, again using the above thread as example:

What I would prefer:

To clarify – RoM will for whatever reason only show the 5 oldest pages of PMs. You have to remove old mail and you will get the gold mail.

You may also have to refresh after cleaning mailbox, since the new mails occasionally fail to appear until a refresh.

Yeah, tyrant. Gil is referring to the 312/30 shards he ended up with after the fuse between awakening, terminus and occupation shards and insertion of a cap.

Just give community pack suggestion a “yes” and stuff will magically happen w/o you doing a thing. Well, besides copy/pasting some xml. I guess that would be enough for WMT for a bit, perhaps that will stop threads leaking here from there for a while.

Topic: General / well done devs - you finally got me to quit

Swiss and similar matchmaking systems doesn’t work with asynchronous matches though. Keep that in mind. But there’s lots of ways to solve the current issue, for example, one can match with similar-ranked people with some minor spread to avoid meeting the same person over and over. However, since that system would result in stocking up on matches and keep one close to 25/25 to set one’s ranking lower than one that dumps his whole bar gets a major adventage, especially at the beginning, perhaps a better approach is to match with (current pts)/(matches played).

Topic: General / [Dev] Brawls matchmaking

Originally posted by synapticon:

Getting a lot of mixed feedback here. Sounds like plenty of people do not want the matchmaking changed mid-event, which is a legitimate concern. At the very least we will be tweaking it for next event.

How about just resetting it, set everyone at 15/25, and re-do it? Would it be legitimate concerns that prevents this?

EDIT: ninja’d – and OK. I don’t think it would cause much issues, but I’m not going to argue since you seem very clear on this.

Topic: General / [Dev] Brawls matchmaking

Let me guess – you took the code from the already-flawed WMT’s “splinter war” event, removed the point reduction for newer players (since this was requested several times because your matchup system was broken and put noobs at a huge disadventage), and called it a day?

The matchmaking was broken, but not nonfunctional, thus removing point reduction without removing the matchmaking makes noobs the ones that fare better.

Just do something like this instead:
Make matchmaking happen for ±10% above and below you in ranking (in the brawl, not BR), capped to minimum ±20 (for those at the top to prevent 1st from mostly matching himself and other silly stuff like that).

Oh, and this event is already busted. Perhaps reset the event and delay the end? It’s not like people will lose out on it, they already gained extra gold so there’s no reason to complain. If you choose not to reset, do not change the event in any way. Retroactively changing events in progress is really, really stupid for many reasons

commonkey is incorrect, sharing refers to several people having access to one single account – the account is “shared”, hence account sharing.
