Topic: Kongregate / February '15 Suggestion Thread

Revert new site design while you rework the new one and ensure that it is as functional and useful as the old one.

I am primarily interested in maintaining the usability of the Most Recently Played mini-list under the “Games” dropdown tab, but I’m sure other people have their own concerns.

Doesn’t seem like this update was particularly well thought out…do better at anticipating what the community needs and wants next time. Functionality and ease of use should be of primary concern, rather than crass cosmetic changes that sacrifice such. Breaking shit and making us complain about it afterwards is inefficient, just exercise better judgement in the first place.

Topic: Kongregate / New Kongregate Version: New navigation changes

Made this post over in Technical Support before I saw this here…since something on the site is “broken” to wit, the formerly useful mini list of recently played games.

Also, yes, color of new profile bar is fugly…

Topic: Technical Support / Site "Update" (presumably) Breaks Functionality...Revert PLEASE!!!

In what I presume is an update to the site, you have broken/deleted one of my favorite and most-used parts of the site. Under the “games” dropdown tab, where the “icon” of your most recently played games is, there used to be listed links to two more recently played games. This simple feature was probably the single feature on the site I used more than any other, as I’d cycle through 3-4 games with a minimum of clicks. Now, it only shows ONE, and is almost useless.

Either trash this update, or fix it so it remains as functional and useful as its preceding version.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Player Feedback

Feature Request:

Could we please have an ingame link we could click to a YouTube video of Islamic terrorists torturing and beheading whoever thought the all-singing, all-dancing, kinda cool the first tine you see it, but ultimately completely useless scrap screen was a good idea.

I mean really guys, it really shouldn’t be this hard to scrap the loads of useless units we’re forced to go through every day to play this game actively. I can see where the “new”, diametrically-opposite of “improved”, scrap system impressed your 5th grade child when you brought him into the office for “Bring Your Kid to Work Day”, but even he’s over it by now. Its like your own personal Jar-Jar Binks, only instead of a cartoon rabbit that steps in Bantha poodoo, you’ve got a car crusher…they’re both pretty obviously aimed at impressing small children, and they both detract from the enjoyment of the whole.

FIX IT. (and if you have a Sarlacc pit handy, you could chuck the person responsible for this abortion in there that’d be great.)

AND NO, “We did it to prepare for implementing the scrap all button” IS NOT AN EXCUSE, you fucking broke the functionality of an integral part of your game on purpose, for obvious COSMETIC reasons…you wanted it to be more prettier… AND YOU FAILED. Unless your goal was merely to increase the number of times we have to click (and even more annoying DRAG) while playing then game…but I don’t see a profit model there, unless you’re going to charge people to revert to the old system.

Topic: Global Assault: General / [Dev] Client update v13

Looks like a triumph of “pretty” over functional…only been playing a day or so, so not emotionally invested in old interface, but this is clearly a downgrade, looks worse, works worse

“Scrap Machine” is particularly odious…too “cute”, not functional enough.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To DEV] Lost Brawl Energy

I last looked at the game when brawls had 1h30m to go before original end time. Came back to game, I’d missed the end of brawl and it said to collect my rewards, hit button, said I’d already claimed my rewards, then said I couldn’t claim rewards or vice versa…

Refreshed game, saw Brawls was extended, but I didn’t have the 3 attack energy I should have from the hour and a half between when I last looked at it and Brawls stated end time. How come they give everyone else the opportunity to spend theirs, but mine gets erased?

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [DEV] Brawl Extension

OK, so…last time I logged on, brawl had 1h30m to go. I log on again, says claim rewards, I try, says I can’t and I already did. Look, no rewards. Refresh game, says Brawls is still going. Fine, but I should have my final 3 attack energy from the hour and a half before it ended, but I don’t have any attack energy at all. What gives? I guess I just get screwed coming and going this event.

Seriously, I WANT those 3 attacks, could get me to 5000 or keep me from falling out of 10k.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [Dev] Brawl Feedback

I was really looking forward to this event, seemed like it would be a lot of fun…unfortunately its set up to punish people who have just played the game straight, and rewards people who have intentionally kept their BR low.

This is amazingly stupid. Those people kept their BR artificially low for their own reasons (artifact hunting), and they did so because they believed the rewards for doing so were there. This event is like a huge bonus for them, and a slap in the face to people who diligently climb the BR ranks to the limit of our capability. I am made to feel as though I must be stupid for not retarding my own growth, because there is no way I can compete with the decks I go up against…even those matches where I might have a chance end up being losses due to surge.

The devs need some way of rating peoples decks, so matchmaking can be more fair, and not so easily manipulated. Total SP points modified by rarity would be a good start. As it is, this event was one I was looking forward to and though I could do respectably in, but it is working on completely killing my interest in this game.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [To Devils] Small event point usage tweak

I fail to see what is so horribad about having scaleable rewards. I mean, nothing like the Imperator Veyr fiasco, but there are gonna be cards that some people have, and other people want, and some of those people might have to wait a while for them to come back around again, or spend some money or do some grinding or something. Its a game, you make choices, if there is no need to make those choices, because all the alternatives are clearly suboptimal, then its not much of a game, is it? If all newbs are entitled to industrial quantities of all Event Rewards just for showing up…I mean, why should “Limited Events” be so easy to “complete” shouldn’t they at least have some kind of goal for higher level players to stretch toward?

..and if you’d actually read what I wrote instead of dismissing it as QQing, you’d see that one of the things I’m “QQing” about is the one-size-fits-all/flavor of the month spam deck du jour. It didn’t exactly take a deckbuilding savant to come up with Gnorlock/Nests/Grims, and only a bit more grey matter to put Kleave* together with Terraformers and some other junk. Both of which feature the latest Event Point sink cards. Devs essentially leading the meta and rubbing our noses in the next card they’ve decided that no one will be able to do without fewer than 7 copies of.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [To Devils] Small event point usage tweak

from fansite post on Event page:
PreciousRoi on 2013/12/23 (12 days ago)
Also a lot of players looking at this list saying, “Got plenty of that, plenty of those, hmm…1 Lion’s Mane, some Terraformers…and…umm, can I put the rest of these event points on a gift card?” I feel sorry for those who got the Lion’s Mane in the PvP event, just because now what are they gonna spend those points on? They already have extra everything else.

So yeah. That post got like -36 iirc btw.

Me personally, I’d like a middle road, the current event seems to benefit newer players and leaves experienced players who already obtained sufficient quantities of the cards in question with few options. I’ve already bought an “extra” (to my mind) Lion’s Mane and Marrow Aileron, and 6 copies of Terraformer…and don’t really see any better option than spending the remaining points on more Terraformers. I guess if I had more slots I could invest in yet more Osprys, but I always thought 4 was enough. So thats two Events in a row where the rewards are skewed toward a few copies of some, none or a single copy of others, and spam quantities of the one that is left.

Aside from the reward cards from the first PvP event there are no cards from the event reward sets I’d even want another copy of, aside from a second HoC, maybe one more Grim (which I can totally wait forever for), and at least an order of magnitude less important, a second copy of BTSvet (y not?), I just want more useful stuff to spend my event points on, and less reliance on spam cards as point sinks.

Unless you’re giving away free slots, or making more available for cheap gold…then perhaps more copies of stuff would make sense…although I’ve always thought the worst thing about this game is needing multiple copies of cards for different decks. The Reward Vault it a sleazy workaround.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Suggestions

Going back to the beginning and keeping it as simple as possible:

Imperial: Rally with a minor in Heal and Supply they’re strong in Basic abilities
Raider: Weaken, lots of Armor, Augment is strong but they pretty much dabble in everything
Bloodthirsty: Enfeeble, Weaken, Disease…lots of other stuff, but those are their signatures
Righteous: Protect, Rally, Refresh, lots of Augment…other stuff, but NO Fear, Disease, Chaos, Poison, Leech, or Enfeeble
Xeno: Mimic…they do a lot of other things, but Xeno do more Mimic than anyone, 2nd most Disease maybe?

note that these aren’t absolute rules, rather what appears to be the intent of the devs, and what has worked out in practice, in the interests of keeping it simple I left out some stuff that wasn’t as unique, for instance I could have given BT and Xeno credit for Chaos and Fear. And Righteous and Raider only have one Mimic card each (a common). But I feel like the basic premises are sound enough. Imperial’s Rally cards have always been around, Raiders’ Weaken, while not as sexy is certainly present in the current meta, Bloodthirsty’s and Righteous’ Legendary Locations are obvious, and theres 50 Xeno cards with Mimic…thats twice as many as all other factions combined.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Errors

Lost a 16 or 17x win streak and 100 energy(an “event attack”)

Converted 100 energy to an attack and hit the “Battle” button on the Splinter War Event.

Nothing happened. Tried again, nothing. I had 10 Stamina so I did a Faction War battle before I tried refreshing page. During FW battle popup appears, something like “Error:Timeout waiting for Battle Event. Please refresh the page.” So I refresh, and the “attack” is gone (along with the energy I used to make it obviously) and my 16-17x win streak is gone as well.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [DEV] Announcing Splinter War PVP Event!

How about maybe instead of setting up a new PvP element, you clean up the game by getting rid of all the alts and bots? (or at least put forth some kind of effort in that direction, instead of completely ignoring it) Seems like that would be something that would benefit the WHOLE GAME and encourage new players who might otherwise be turned off by the apparent corruption and absentee landlordism.

“All that is required for (the) Evil (of alts and bots) to flourish is for (*snickers) Good Men (that means YOU, devs, unlikely as it might seem for someone to hang that moniker on you) to do nothing.”

So far, you’ve been doing a bang-up job at that…why not stop doing nothing about this problem, man up and give the players an honest game…instead of more Bread and Circuses.
