Topic: Kongregate / Changes to the Collabs section

I haven’t looked at Collabs in a long, long while, but today I was going to check on it. I’m glad I did before it was scrubbed.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] What is the most overpowered deck one can make

I don’t know if it’s OP really, but I think Voss (RoC), Agathe (Black Book), Oxbox (RoB) would drive opponents up the wall.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Who is the best finisher?

I don’t think anyone can beat a loaded balt in a 1v1.

Yeah, he’s the best, no question. Helene can take him, maybe Popo. Anex or Cain if the Balt player is careless.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] New Card Group Ideas.

Bears.

Polar bear, with immunity to cold & elemental effects.
Another one that steals the items of those he kills.
Bear whose attacks all do bleed damage (which is not reversed by Periapt of course)

items could include a “pick-a-nicker’s hat” and some kind of bird that hangs around you.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] What is the best of first card?

Bestor is OK, Phoebe is OK but not that close-range, Ashi is acceptable.

windtyping, you have Vanessa Voss, Phoebe, & Yoshiro. Any of these would be fine.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Before Posting a Possible Bug, Read This!!!

This happened to me once. If you kill someone with A66 Capacitor by changing range, a new character will switch in & you will not recharge energy for the next turn.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Reccomended Starters

Yeah, I think Higashi, Bestor, & Angelan are all good for newbies.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Reccomended Starters

Higashi & Angelan are both legitimately dual-range, & more accurate than MR-V1N & Popo. Bestor has a bunch of undercosted/overpowered effects, & can raise the whole team’s crit rate. I think HigAngeBeast is a decent deck idea.

Andromeda-Oni-Angelan is less good, as it involves two opposite monorangers. If anything happens to Angelan, you’re in the situation of tying range-changing to switching rest of the match.

Bestor-CC-Onimaru is OK. Bestor is putatively a close-ranger, as is CC, so they have synergy with Onimaru. Probably better than sticking him with Phoebe & Auger, say.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Fun 3 Card Benchhitter

Wait, “fun” “benchhitter”? I don’t understand. Why even have benchhitters in the game? Why not have one game with, you know, Yomi, & another game for people that want to hit the whole side at once?

Really, what I’m saying is I think the bench-eaters should be deleted from the game & all you Zina-lovers should go play Elements.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Give me a deck

Try using Popo/Elusive Feather, MR-V1N/A66 Capacitor, & B9/whatever. You’ll always have an attack for your range, you’ll sometimes be slow on speed, but you should be able to play an energy game.

It’s up to you to learn how to use it. There is no pattern that will work consistently.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] NINJA VS PIRATES

Yeah, bring in Darla with the Spyglass (or Girdle, Healing Salve, whatever), steal the Girdle (or Energy Core/Poison/whatever), then send in Ranec or Onimaru (who can close range & knock off Inner Fire/Lock-on/etc.), & mess up your opponent’s plans.

There are characters Auger really doesn’t want to fight, though, I’ve noticed that. Rumiko, too. They get hosed hard sometimes.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] What's your best team combo?

This isn’t mine, but I played against it once & it was kind of scary. Yoshiro, Anex, Andromeda. All of them can hit a fleeing opponent. You could use Ambrosia or Eva in that kind of deck too.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Idea for 5 card

I think 5-card should nerf the bench-hitting attacks.

Maybe make them cost 5/3 as much over time, if we want a standard formula? That would avoid inflating the value of enemy resistance, right?

So, { (C – 20) * 5 / 3 + 20 = E }, where C is the energy cost in 3-card & E is the energy cost in 5-card.

Amaya’s Shadow Wrath & Voss’s Radiance Burst: (40 – 20) * 5 / 3 + 20 = 53.3. Round to 55.

Rath’s Reckless Firestorm & Zina’s Tiger Frenzy: (30 – 20) * 5 / 3 + 20 = 36.6. Round to 35.

Bestor’s Pyroclasm: (25 – 20) * 5 / 3 + 20 = 28.3. Round to 30.

Gorbax’s Death Blossom: (60 – 20) * 5 / 3 + 20 = 86.6. Round to 85.

But this doesn’t work for effects with no energy cost (Oxbox’s innate, A66 Capacitor) or for Sophie’s Clear Casting of Circle of Shadows. We’d still want different formulae there.

If you go with a standard miss chance, then Amaya could override it with the Crane.

So we’d have to redesign every attack, some getting damage nerfs or accuracy nerfs, some maybe costing more. Lot to do for the 5-card variant.

I would prefer if bench attacks were a bit weak in 3-card & just slightly strong in 5-card. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] What are the chances of getting new cards?

I think it’s supposed to be 3% on ranked matches thereafter. What’s weird is that sometimes it’ll tell you you’ve won a card & sometimes it won’t. Yesterday I got the Tarot Card: High Priestess, with a screen saying, “You have ranked up & earned this card.” That was my 70th (distinct) card. Today I got on Kongai & noticed the main screen said I had 71 cards. Apparently I’d gotten a Girdle dropped the same day but it didn’t tell me when, nor show up until the next day.

All at once? I had that deck. Hard to use with two monorangers.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] there needs to be new cards

I could see some possible additions: Farmers, ET’s, Aquatics, Bears.

Or add more characters to each existing faction. An ugly female vamp, an Amazon with a polearm, a judoka, etc.

But give it time. We just had the first 20 characters for about 2 years, we can work with this set for a long while.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Crits should roll seperate

Well, that would change Starbuck & Popo a fair bit. Would probably require rebalancing Popo.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] I mean really?

Well, I think it was “Random (My Cards).” I don’t recall putting MLM & IBO-K9 in the same deck.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] I mean really?

I just beat a newbie with all my characters at full hp. The only one he damaged was MLM, who got the life back various ways. I was using a random deck.

This is what you get for using your brother’s account. No, that’s rude. I shouldn’t be discouraging anyone from playing.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kongai] Has the drop rate gone up or am I just on a lucky streak?

I’ve gotten another drop since I started this thread. All older cards, too. (Popo, Rumiko, Yoshiro, Healing Salve.)

I just hit 500 wins, yay! On the other hand, 559 losses. I may never get into the black….
