Just thought I’d pop in to remind everyone that it’s been over 3 months since the last quest was released! Time to harass greg for a new one!

Really 3 months? I just got finished with the epic quests yesterday though.

Perfect, thank you! Everyone else can go home.

Thanks for having it awarded retroactively.

I have the perfect suggestion to stop 13 year olds and bots from making accounts on Kongregate.

Special Thanks: Reddit for pointing this idea out and Chuck E Cheeses for the idea

Ok, so one of the things that people should do before making an account is to verify their age. The best way we can do this is by a math problem.

Ex.

This would stop any underage kid from going on to kongregate and since it is a math problem alt bots would be harder to create to. (This plan isn’t really thought out since this is a rare 2:00 AM EST post)

Maybe a little harder math than that. Think I could solve that when I was 8 but nice idea.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

As a room owner in a non english room users may use words that abuses the rules. Most censored words are english so it would be nice if room owner could edit the allowed words in the rooms and censor them. This way the swedish chatroom for example could get rid of swears and insults nobody in the other chat rooms cares about. And it would be less job for those who work on censoring words on kongregate.

It would be nice for something other than an upgrade game to be badged. I realize part of this is a lot of the recently added games are still under the 3.8 rating, but what about adding badges to older games again?

Well then, request an older game to get badged. About non-upgrade games: among the badged ones a big group of them has upgrades since it’s a really popular feature. Recently we have the valley rule.

OH, COME ON!

Yesterday you FINALLY, FINALLY, after months upon months of it being broken, you FINALLY fixed the problem where you if you middle or right click on the BotD link it would just open the game in the same tab as opposed to a new tab or a list of options. I was so happy because that problem, as previously mentioned, has been around for GODDAMN MONTHS!

And today it’s broken again.

Wrong subforum. This is upcoming badges, which has nothing to do with bugged links.

I slightly remember Greg has said this isn’t his jurisdiction…. but it’s also not on the front page.

Quick completion badge up for My Friend Pedro. It’s kind of between easy and medium.

War of Omens is getting badges tomorrow, and Solarmax 2 is on the list after that.

Originally posted by CowFriend:

The game already has badges though…

I know that, I’m just saying that it could have an easy badge. It’s not that rare for a game to be badged after the initial batch.

Yeah, I’ll probably put up an easy badge for coins tomorrow. I wasn’t expecting the medium badge to be earned so little.

How about the “Riches out of this world” badge?

Last Legacy has some pretty atrocious interfaces, but the game’s fairly original. Haven’t seen flash games like this in awhile. Think the game could warrant an easy badge, though. Maybe collect 500 coins or something like that, it’s going to take some time to get the medium.

Really though, this is one of the best games I have played on Kong.

The game already has badges though…

You’re still avoiding the question, even if I took something too seriously.

The papa games has gotten to repetitive. Jacksmith got badges but that was original. It feels like the difference between the games is basically what food you are serving.

Dangerous Adventure is pretty terrible game. Boring, long, inexplicably laggy, unoriginal …. it seems like the only reason it got a rating high enough for badges is because the ui is in the style of Kingdom Rush. Mighty Knight (another terribad game), did the same thing. It’s kind of depressing.

QFT.

Nobody remembers King’s Guard?

Kings guard was way better than this IMO. At least it had an engaging story and not copied graphics.

I’d still recommend a medium for 30-35k in Creeper World 3. With a 4.43 rating and the popularity of the series, it’s almost certain to wind up on Best of 2014, so a lower difficulty badge will be needed at that point. The combined scoring medium has the advantages I mentioned earlier, and would also differentiate it from Creeper World 2 (CW2 was also originally assigned only a game completion hard badge, and was then given a 4 level medium for the Best of Year Quest).

Creep What You Sow might work for a badge name, I guess.

I actually prefer the remix to the original FPA, but there are substantial similarities. Given that, a medium for completion would probably suffice.

Can’t we just make the impossible quest? The quest with only the hardest hard and impossible badges.

This would just be a copy of Fancy Pants Adventure: World 2 so not sure that should be a badge.

Also isn’t one of the FPA badges already called pants full of squiggles?

Astrox badges are live! A few minutes too slow, The_Atari_Kid.

Next week will be Fancy Pants Remix, Creeper World, and probably something else since I’m close on Creeper World and Fancy Pants shouldn’t take long.

It seems like I had to save to get my hard badge awarded. The other 2 worked fine without saving. A little edit of description or fix.
Also I couldn’t help to notice that all unity badges has the unity symbol. Lel.

Ok I get it. You are right. But what I meant is that we don’t have much more clear definitions of imps than that greg can’t earn it. You do know some of the imps was mistakes.
Sure you want an impossible?
I see you earned quite a few so could you please define the impossible badge concept.

I’m not sure why we’re even discussing a score (time) based badge for CW3, particularly since it deincentivizes playing through the game yourself.

This is a terrible argument. You’re basically saying that any badge, if sufficiently hard enough to encourage the player to use a walkthrough, is a bad badge and so should either not be made or should be made easier. Observe:

I’m not sure why we’re even discussing a coin based badge for MoneySeize, particularly since it deincentivizes playing through the game yourself.
I’m not sure why we’re even discussing an award based badge for Amorphous+, particularly since it deincentivizes playing through the game yourself.
I’m not sure why we’re even discussing a bandaid based badge for Meat Boy, particularly since it deincentivizes playing through the game yourself.

There is nothing inherently wrong with the idea of an impossible badge for total score.

Now I do agree that it’s not at all clear where the threshold for an impossible badge would be. It would take some time to figure that out. I think it’s unlikely that 100k will be the right difficulty. I don’t think it’s likely we’ll get an impossible badge, I think the closest we’ll get is greg saying that maybe he’ll consider adding one at a later date. Hell, there’s not even a stat that tracks total score. I just like the idea of optimizing every level in this game, I think it would be, you know, fun?

You do know the requirement for the impossibles is that Greg can’t earn it. The creeper games are pretty easy once you get the hang of it.And copying the timing in a walkthrough for a strategy game. Don’t make it sound like it’s hard.

Greg: could you keep an eye for reincarny: leet. If this gets higher rating and API an easy badge would be in place. Casual gamer causalty badge. Would that be a nice badge name?

Badge difficulty should never be lowered because of walkthroughs, and I think Greg once said that he never considered walkthroughs when making badges.

Puzzle games would never get hard badges if that were the case.

Yes but that is true. How many puzzle games does get hard badges. Take point and click and genre so few hard badges and those which exist Greg often call us out if we use walkthroughs.
“Greg once said”. Everyone is allowed to change their mind right? Even Greg? What this page needs is a kind of poll thingy so we can just vote about the badges Gregs wants us to decide.

I don’t have any control over this. It’s all automatic and probably just delayed.

Also you forget to inform about game difficulty… I guess it’s any?

Yes, I’ll clarify that now.

Looks good now, thanks.

Okay, I FIIIIINALY got badges up in Decision: Medieval. Yeah, they’re basically the same as Decision 2. And yeah, it took me about half a week and 10 hours of gameplay time just to reach this same conclusion, but making the hard badge was a little tricky because I wanted to make sure it would award to people who already got 100% and then restarted their games. So it should be super reliable now in that regard.

I’m looking at Pixelo now — probably just a medium for doing a handful of levels, since they’ll all be in the easy set and I don’t know if I really want to do a hard badge for completing a ton of easy levels.

Maybe not, but you would never need too. It’s super easy. It’s an endurance badge that requires no skill. Only thing hard is the first boss.
Edit: greg: please be nice and give pixelo an impossible for completing all levels. It is a challenge since you have to endurant.

Greg has already said that he views the Balloon Invasion imp as a mistake, so why would you ask him to make that mistake again? Any badge for completion of Pixelo would simply be way too long to be reasonable.

Who said I wanted him to do a mistake again? I don’t think it was a mistake. Balloon Invasion is a enjoyable game that I gladly spend time on. Besides this is a completely, different, larger game. Although… I am still happy with just a hard badge for a number of levels.

I don’t see what part doesn’t sound good to you.

It’s not a challenge.

Nor is balloon invasion.
