Will visable votes be turned on after all the voting is over so we can see just how good or bad games did in this and later rounds ?

Maybe! I’m leaning towards keeping the rest of it secret, but maybe we’ll post if there’s something particularly interesting with one of the matchups. For example, there’s currently a game that has five TIMES as many votes as the game it’s up against.

I think it’s fine to reveal the results after a round. I said during round 1 that they should be hidden to prevent biased voting. Once a new round starts, I dont think that bias exists anymore.

Well sure, when the next round starts, everyone will see what the results are, because the winners will remain to vote on!

How the heck did Balloons TD 5 beat The Kings League AND Kingdom Rush? Wat?

If it’s any comfort, it was a closer one than some others have been. Bloons TD 5 got 8500 votes and Kingdom Rush got about 6500.

This thread is going to be much quieter now since we won’t have people who are disgusted excited about their game losing winning.

You can still speculate!

Meh at least I don’t have to go into Your Pants and hear everybody.complaimging about how bad the Kong community is at picking games and blah blah blah. If only an admin hero would send me the winners the day before the next round of voting I can still do the match ups Post :3

There’s only an hour between rounds, so there’s really not enough time to fit it in. Plus, it wouldn’t be fair to the games if we gave that info out before the rounds were over. But thanks for doing those, they’ve been very fun to read!

Alright, everyone. This is the last round that determines which games will be in the quest. Everything else from there is bragging rights.

In an effort to really make things a bit more mysterious, I’ve turned off visible votes, so the results from here on out will be hidden until the next round. Good luck, and may the best games win.

Round three is GO!

This thread is for reporting people that you believe to be hackers. This is not a thread for calling other users names or being rude, nor is it a place to try to explain yourself. The developers of this game, Ninjakiwi, investigate any cases that they’re concerned about and will make decisions appropriately. They can tell who is and isn’t hacking, so if you’re not actually hacking, you have nothing to worry about.

I feel like that to balance this out, someone should make a “worst badged games” tournament and see which 8 come out at the top, then harass the admins until they make “Worst. Quest. Ever.”.

You might as well rename it the Papa’s Badgeria Quest then.

Hmm.

Creeper World is very much my kind of tower strategy game. I love to turtle up in just about any RTS, so I turtle up, slowly expand, and OWN the map.

I can’t believe you people voted out Creeper World. I love Creeper World.

Yes, I know putting it against Cursed Treasure was my own mistake. SHH.

@adv0 (I’m bad at editing out bits of quotes so I’m skipping it!)

I think you might have just had unlucky timing. 7pm Eastern was 4pm Pacific, which was RIGHT when we were switching the home page feature roll in. It’s actually in there right now, so I think you happened to arrive right when it wasn’t. On top of that, the skin on the homepage (the bits on the sides) also shows and links to the brackets, so that should help too. :)

That being said, though, not everyone cruises by the homepage during their time on the site. I know I never really do, but that’s just how I happen to use the site. And not everyone’s going to click on it, either. But we’re trying to get it to as many people as possible, and you’re welcome to share it with whoever you want!

Not letting Wonderbutt win. Ever.

Is this because you love LTF or because you hate Wonderputt? No one should hate Wonderputt. :(

Suggestion: I know its not Predictions, but you should give users prices if they got the Whole 1st round Picks correct. As in the game they picked, all ended up advancing. And so the later users do not end up picking the one thats in the lead, turn off the voting results till the Round is over so it remains a mystery. It would get more people voting if there ends up being a price if every game you voted advanced.

Voting results visible or not, that would encourage people to pick what they think OTHER people will pick, rather than picking their own favorites. The goal is to get people to vote for their OWN favorites. :)

I must confess to being disappointed. The impression I got from the banner was that I would be able to vote for my favourite game, but I ended up having to vote for the staff members’ favourite games. How on Earth did Factory Balls 2 make the cut, but nothing from the Shift series? All four of them have medium badges and none of them has been in a quest before.

Only the bottom right section is staff picks. The rest were chosen from games that the community has rated highly. I DID actually consider the Shift series, because those are pretty great, but I didn’t want to have too many games from the same developers, even though ArmorGames has made a lot of great stuff. :)

Banned users don’t qualify, we would just pick another winner.

Also, confirming the suspicion that Rise of Mythos was my staff pick. I lobbied pretty hard to get it on the list. It was one of my favorite games on the site for well over a year, but Sushi Cat is also a great game so I am not surprised it is winning.

I KNEW IT! But who picked all the other staff picked games?

A bunch of us did, as a team. :)

Whoever picked pel must be sad D: Poor pel. (I bet it was you, Candy :3)

Yes, I was the one to put Pel in here. But I also put Zilch in here, and I also put Zilch against Pel. So I knew what I was in for, and I DO love Zilch!

Might want to add the round # in the title or OP.

The first one started at about 4pm on Friday, so this one will start at 4pm today. I do intend to edit the OP as needed. I got this ;D

Just hit me this should have been 128 games so that its closer to 100(000).

That would have been a ridiculous number of games! Plus I liked the 8×8 thing, 8 games in 8 categories. :)

Great Expectations and Pride & Prejudice were some of the worst I’ve had to read. Maybe having to read them for school is what ruined them for me.

There is reason most places don’t allow to see amount of votes before you vote yourself!

Maybe not this round but in the future rounds so that people don’t pick the popular vote rather than their favorites.

If they voted for what was popular instead of what their “favorite” is, they clearly weren’t very dedicated to their favorite! Either way, people are making their own decisions in this bracket. If that’s how they want to vote, then so be it! :)

Originally posted by hamuka:

So um, if I vote in Round 1, I’m no longer eligible for any other round prize because I’ve already reached the maximum number of entries? I suck at understanding this kind of stuff, as I’ve shown several times before, so please do enlighten me on how this works.

Sorry, that’s a bit confusing. You’ll get one entry per round! To understand how the event works, stick with what I’ve posted in the thread. Legalese is confusing.

Just so you know, it still says predictions on the main page.

I know, that’s locked in. It really is votes. :(
