Topic: Kongregate / I'm officially done with Kong

It’s been a slow death kong (Since you were sold many years ago), but it’s over now.

The last straw? The inbox spam from devs. I just got one from a dev telling me their latest installment is finally out, and given it was a game I used to like, I took the bait.

Thought the game looked a bit old so I checked upload date, Nov 2012….. Yep I got a message just days ago trying to tell me a 3 year old game had “just came out” And you guys are totally ok with devs doing this. You won’t let us opt out from this spam so I’m going to opt out of your website.

Rip kong, you were the one who introduced me to flash.

Topic: Kongregate / Front page - Recommended Games

So when I come to check out Kong, there’s boring old games that I’ve played already on the front page and I’m like meh, then leave.

If I log out, I get a whole bunch of other, better games I’ve not seen and I actually have something to play.

So why is this? Do you not want me here anymore? Are you trying to give me a hint that I should leave and never come back?

Why don’t you want me playing new content?

Topic: Crusaders of the Lost Idols / Remove the "New Chest" notification?

Can you get rid of that little tab that pops up saying you have a new chest?

It takes several annoying seconds to click away the chest when it does come up, we don’t then need a little pop up below telling us we’ve just found our 300th chest that once again we cannot be bothered opening because it’s so damned inefficient.

These just pile up in my inventory because mostly they’re useless. Can you do my OCD a favor and just get rid of the notification entirely?

Then when you’re bored, make silver chests a 1click pick up and open/claim. we don’t need to click every single card when normally 2/3 of them are money, and the other is a useless click buff.

Topic: Kongregate / Stagnation

I feel as though kong is dead. I check is every few weeks but there’s rarely anything new worth playing.

Have flash games been killed or is kong dead? Are there any new flash sites out there that are what Kong once was?

Topic: GemCraft - Chasing Shadows / Why can't I skip the tutorial

This is like this 20th gemcraft game, I know how to play. why do I have to sit through an annoying stuttering tutorial.

I want to play this game, but won’t bother until I can skip the pointless game play

Topic: Kongregate / Any way to stop devs spamming my inbox?

This never used to happen before Kong was sold and I’ve finally had enough of devs spamming my inbox trying to get me to play their games.

Can I completely turn off my messages? Block devs from messaging me? ANYTHING!?!? If not, I’m finally done, this is the last straw for kong, you’re not what you used to be. You have turned into greedy commercially motivated pricks

Topic: Kongregate / Stop devs from spamming my inbox

Why is it when ever I play a game, even if it’s for less than 5 minutes. I get the positive experience of any game updates/promotions/bored devs messages being sent to my inbox? Half the time I don’t even like the games yet suddenly I have to put up with any crap they want to send me for the next few weeks?

Kong has fallen pretty far since being bought several years ago but this is the nail in the coffin for me. I’m sick of having my inbox spammed by devs I have no interest in. If I fav the game I can understand, but I haven’t, so stop letting them spam me thanks.

Topic: RobotPet / Suggestions for upcoming updates

^ I get where you’re coming from but at the same time, when I reset now I do level 40 infinity @ level 1 with white items and come out level 32 after a single run. There’s just no need to sell gold items at the start in order to get ahead.

It takes me 3-5 infinity runs to get from level 1 – 60. From there the grind is back on.

Naturally this took a few rebuilds to achieve (4 i think, maybe 5) but I really don’t think selling gold items would have a real impact on the game.

Or he could always make their value scale off your level, so if you’re level 1 it’s going to be worth stuff all anyway?

Anyway good thought provoking response you gave. I definitely agree the mixer just luck, I don’t bother with it except to turn blues into purples then sell for scrap, I’ve certainly never gotten a note worthy upgrade from it.

You know you could always look at adding a legendary tier with a 1% chance to craft only in the item mixer, that’d give us a good way to get rid of gold items we don’t need. Something that would not drop off mobs, could only be crafted and has a very low chance to craft? That would interest me.

Not sure if this has been said but a sell all whites, sell all greens and sell all blues button would be nice.

Come back from a few hours in infinity and you have a few hundred items to sell. Can take a while

Topic: RobotPet / Suggestion : Targetting

I was thinking it would be great to add a screen in which all enemy types were listed and you could arrange them into the order you want which would then become target priority.

Then have it so your bot would apply that priority list to every unit in ITS range (Not the whole screen) so that you can prioritise dangerous enemies first.

Rather than trying to skirt around the outside in order to keep what you want to attack in range, it’s rather fiddly and un-fun.

There’s some rather tanky bots that you could happily ignore. But instead I find my bot likes to sit there pounding away at something tanky, while something high damage is wrecking him.

I’m sure the idea could use refining, but what do you guys think?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Prime World: Defenders] What to look for as a new player?

At the end of the day this is a RNG game and as most people know, sometimes RNG can be a bastard.

Hah just signed in too and got my daily bonus, just so you know it is possible here is a screen shot, day 3 by the way.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Prime World: Defenders] This game contains little to no strategy.

I don’t need to. I have my T3 dragon tower that I got from grinding, just like everything else I got from grinding. As well as 3 extra dragon towers that I got from chests that I keep just because ;)

Though I’ve yet to even see a lightning tower I’ll grind for it rather than making threads complaining about how it hasn’t dropped for me, yet, because it will. I just have to spend more time playing and not complaining.

Good luck

It’s very likely you got preferential treatment because the game is going to hope you give it more kreds in the future. Many such games are coded to try to lose players who clearly aren’t going to pay

I bet you think 9/11 was an inside job too. Hard not to laugh at this

I had 2 show up in a chest once. Missed both of them though haha

So just to follow up, the first post was the most useful for me. It took me 4-5 days to get everything except the sun and lightning tower. I’m cruising through hard mode levels and I’m currently at level 17 which I believe is the 2nd to last level.

I’ve hardly had an issue beating anything nor do I think it’s really taken all that much grinding. I honestly think people just expect games to hand them everything on a platter these days. Bitch and moan when they have to put any time or effort in

No issue grinding here, I really don’t see what you’re all bitching about. If you don’t like go find something you do like, don’t see what a big wingefest will achieve.

I’ve got everything just working on sun tower now(I have 1 atm) and I’m still cruising through the hard mode levels I’m currently 1 level prior to the final level.

The funny thing is the few packs I bought with I think the 60 kreds I put into this actually gave me nothing, I got everything from grinding and it’s not even remotely as long as you guys make it out to be. Everything else I bought/upgraded with silver.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Prime World: Defenders] Why does my game keep resetting?

About once a day I’ll jump on this game to find I’m back at level 1 and have to start over. If I leave and come back a few hours later I’m back to where I was originally, or sometimes it will even ask me if I want to use my server saved game.

Why does this keep happening? It’s getting to be a pain.

k bye

Edit why would you expect to be able to complete a game with out having everything maxed? Like who in their right mind would add a whole bunch of content then make the game beatable with level 1/2 towers?

That’s like World of warcraft making raid bosses soloable by level 5 characters…. Your argument seems to lack logic.

Secondly it only took me 2 days to get 3 dragon towers, though I’ve yet to find a sun tower, I have (I think) almost every other tower and leveled them just fine using the 2k silver packs. There’s no endless grinding that I’ve found
