Topic: Yu-Gi-Oh! BAM / Ai is cheating

Yeah, I’ve noticed that the AI has just ‘happened’ to put the right card in the right place more than could be pure fluke, on top of that raigeki and mirror force are obscenely overpowered. There’s a reason they were banned in Yu-gi-oh, they should have stayed banned.

eh, I was thinkng along the lines of people who can spend on every online game they see vs those who have to buget their gaming money.

Considering this is a top quality game, of the likes you don’t see in flash very often, people will be more inclined to spend money on this. I’ve not spent a fricken PENNY on BTD5, or any of the crappy multiplayer games on here that harp on and on at you to spend money like it’s christmas, but as this was a one off $5 payment and would increase the game time from 60~ hours to 100+ I thought it would be a good investment, as it turns out I was right, I’m now on my fourth run through, the only game I’ve played more than this is FFX and that cost me £30, whereas this cost me £3.50… You can play the full game and beat it with ease without paying for it, I actually bought the premium after I’d beaten the game and as a contribution to the devs for their fantastic work, and it gave me more to do after I beat the game. I don’t really see it as giving you much of an advantage apart from Endurance which is meant to be a hard setting anyway.

Topic: Kongregate / Activity feeds for everyone

When I first joined Kong it was the best games site, hands down. The community was amazing and it was a platform for inde developers, a while ago it seemed to drift away from being a platform and more towards being commercialised, but the site was still the same old kongregate it had always been, and as far as I’m aware everyone loved it. Since the new changes have been coming in I’ve been coming less and less onto kongregate, much like facebook you guys seem to be selling out to the ‘projected expectations’ market, meaning you change it to what you think will be cool without giving a damn about what people actually feel. At every major change which hasn’t been cool (everyone loves the recently played, a fair few people liked the moving box thing) the complaints have FAR outweighed the people defending it.

Cookies to anyone who can tell me how to get the activity feed off my main page without deleting all my friends, and a way of getting the old recently played back would be nice. I used the recently played games section a LOT. Been here since 2007 and I’m severely disgruntled about how players complaints seem to be being treated like nothing. These split tests you’re doing obviously are not working properly

As for the more badges bit, hello it’s vacation time? Everyone’s out of school/uni/etc.

Also the fact that clicking on the community button takes me to the activity feed, which is on the front page is hilariously stupid.

Topic: Time World / Game ruined by badges.

I used to play a game called tribalwars, which used to be very popular, THAT is a time management game. You end up getting to the point where you turn your alarm clock on for 4 am to get up to do something specific, the 24 hour wait buildings feel like a long time the first time you get it but the eventually that wait becomes minimal. This kind of game is just another way at grabbing money. The players who are already there don’t want an influx of newbies who lag the game, downrate it and whine and the new players don’t want to be forced onto a game that begs them to spend money every thirty seconds or rate it plus five or whatever the game is trying to make you do.

Topic: Kongregate / Is it POSSIBLE for someone to get 44 Impossible badges in one (ONE!) day?

Or you crazy? Max Mesiria Chp2 is by far the hardest, most timeconsuming, skillbased AS WELL as luck-needing impossible badge I have ever seeen.

It will not fit in by any means, even If ur skilled and superlucky I am 100% sure no one can ever do that badge in 1 day.

There’s a full walkthrough in the forums. That’s why I said that.

Even with the walkthrough it can be a pain in the arse, it doesn’t always work as the walkthrough says. I actually used a different way of going through it because I had so many failed attempts based on the walkthrough. But to get to the point of the impossible badge you have to go through the whole of the story which is time consuming in itself and then the battle mode takes forever to complete, even if you get it first try. But it’s still a maybe for doing if you got the strategy down pat and got lucky.

Topic: Kongregate / Is it POSSIBLE for someone to get 44 Impossible badges in one (ONE!) day?

Pandemic 2, DO2, Streamline, DTD and 99 bricks are the five I got in one day once, but my brain was fried afterwards. I was going to try and hit out Max Mesiria as well but to go through the story and then try and luck through the battle mode would have taken too long and I didn’t have the motivation left. I reckon if I were better at some certain games (hexiom, orbular, etc) so that I was able to get them within a couple of hours as well then I could push it up to ten but I think that would be the higher limit, I’m aware there are people out there a lot better than me with more endurance but I still don’t see there being more than 15~ gotten without save files.

What’s going on?
Also we need a check box for people you have shouted.

That stops future postings. You still have to manually go back and delete the previous ones that are still there one by one.

So basically they’ve added yet another almost completely useless feature to the slowly rapidly getting crap layout of kong? Great.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongregate fans, I give you a challenge!

The ONLY advert I have EVER complained about is the one that shows over my game before it starts. Oftentimes I’ll have music on or have youtube running and the sudden burst of sound is aggravating and disrupting, plus I really don’t want to press skip to get to my damned game, it’s the same problem as youshite. If the adverts were like they USED to be, above the game and underneath to the side, I wouldn’t have adblocker running on kong, the adverts are actually counter productive in my eyes as it is actually what caused me to get adblocker in the first place. Without the ads across games/videos I wouldn’t bother with adblocker as I don’t mind adverts to help out the people behind the websites.

In the interest of keeping this to the topic of conversation as opposed to arguing the complainers point, therefore an addition could be using points to get ads free.

I never said I was perfect, just that I don’t like the way this tourney is going so I’m not going to stay in it just to purposefully fail later.

D: you’re not even gunna try for a horrible score just to get you through the rounds until the finals?

I hate this game. I think loops of zen (which I liked until I did all the badges..) threw me off this style of gameplay. So with a scoring system that encourages spam and a (in my opinion) crappy first game, it doesn’t bode well for me wanting to actually join in. =/

Bah. So I have to actually get a score then. Oh well, seeing as my goal in this tourney is to get to the final round then fail miserably, I have a MUCH easier time of it!

You can play the game as much as you want, you will be able to post scores of Colourshift until the end of the whole tournament.

Wait I’m REALLY confused by this, does that mean there are no knock outs and the games can be submitted right up to the last thing? So I could just leave, do PP until the end of the tourney and then just post my scores on the last day and (technically) win?

Yep. The entire PP idea makes a complete mockery of the scoring system.

EDIT: Oh bugger I wanted to PP ninja 9 o’clock. Oh well.

Topic: Kongregate / V.O.K. - Game 7

Why 10 pm? Why not just have it so that your day starts at 12am? My PP would have been bang on then =P

I still don’t like the concept of PP, but as I can’t get rid of it I also vote for the change to adding instead of multiplication.

Not in my country I didn’t. I posted at 10 o’clock at night and then 10 o’clock in the morning. As the time zones are evidently going to cause a problem for me, I shall just have to post on the hour every hour not give a shit about this stupid PP idea.

Topic: Kongregate / V.O.K. - Qualifier (ends on 16/06)

According to VG I have to get to the finals and then fail spectacularly so he’s my qualifying post.

Although looking at the OP, this doesn’t look like it’s going to be a fun tourney at all, PP and a crap first game? Eh.

Topic: Kongregate / Kongrefeint - Finals

Wow, so my PC decided to flub on me yesterday with the blue screen of death, I’m at my mates house tonight so that I could at least post.

After looking over the posts and speaking to the three people whom are vying for top position, I’ve decided that due to VG submitting his score to Mochi’s score, the very real problem of API just not submitting sometimes and the fact that blizz is very graciously accepting a three way tie, I’ve decided to accept VG’s score.

Now onto the tiebreaker’s problem, all three have requested there be no tiebreaker, plus the tiebreaker was only meant to run for 24 hours… which is right now. So there won’t be a tiebreaker.

Well done to Blizz, VG and JoshDragon for tying for 1st place! I’m sorry my PC had a derpaherpa moment so I couldn’t sort this out properly, but alls well that ends well! Good luck in the next tourney guys!

Asmo~

The whole design, with exception to the cluttered posts, is presented much better than it previously was.

Personally moving the huge black achievement box into a categorized library is so much easier for the eyes.

I completely disagree with this, the new design looks like someone who was fired from apple drew it up on their way to the mental ward. The old design was easy, very distinctively ‘kongregate’ and looked far better than the crap(aka new) design.

I know kong consistently decide to ignore the users requests, even when it’s the majority vote, but I think that if they keep on ignoring the public, they’re gonna lose a seriously large amount of people.
