Happy birthday, Greg. Also, could you make the impossible have both 100% completion and survival score? This would make it a little harder.

Uhmm… I’m an average gamer, and I got 100% completion on this game a few days ago. Took me only a couple of hours to do so, and an impossible badge is not supposed to just take a few hours for any average gamer to complete.

An average gamer doesn’t have 17 imps, if you want to go down that road.

I kinda agree with Prec’s suggestions, but am really unsure about the imp now. :/

Those are mostly rather easy ones, whereas impossible badges should be insane in the way the one for Vertigo: Gravity Llama is. It’s badges like these which set most Kongregaters apart from the best of the best gamers. An impossible badge for 100% completion would be similar to the one Warlords: Heroes got, in that once you get the knack of it, it’s really not all that hard, and getting the knack of it only requires practice (instead of superb skill).

Getting the knack of it and practice patiently? Isn’t that how you aquire superb skills? That is how I did it with death vs monstars 2. But I don’t know, all my other imps except frantic 3 and run 2(easy one) was luck based.

Just try not to make the imp to easy. Yesterday I saw a guy clear 3 imps in about 6 hours and he/she has 47 imps.
These imps were death vs monstars, hippolyta and Oo. all from the latest years. My point is that for more skilled players most suggestions will sound too easy. Also it’s most satisfactory if the impossible covers all aspects of the game because this show the most skill.

Why would you waste so many words on “completely nothing”?

There aren’t tons of imp badges, there’s like 50. Which is <2% of all badges.


I’m crap at rhythm games too, join the club. But whether SCGMD4 deserves an imp shouldn’t have anything to do with how many other rhythm games have imps. Each game should be badged on its own merits.


Do you really need to ask why people suggest imps instead of hard badges? People are more likely to waste their time suggesting imps for the same reason they waste their time earning imps. For the glory. No-one believes that the best badges on this site are easy or medium, or hard badges. They know that the very best badges are badges like the MoneySeize one, the MM2 one, the Zunderfury one, the DO2 one, the CQ2 one. The only exception I can think of is You Have To Burn the Rope, but let’s face it that should have been an imp too.


No I don’t have 100% in RS II, I’m at 89%. I have however been exposed to the requirements for 100%, so.


The fact that we’ve recently had a rate of impossible badges slightly higher than once in a blue moon should not be a factor. You seem to be saying that Rogue Soul II shouldn’t get an imp simply because we’ve had 4 imps already this year or something. You are wrong.


Do you know anyone who likes the Nest Egging badge? I can’t even imagine the existence of a person who’s happy with the requirement at 85%


Yes I know what the requirements are for adding an imp but i am sworn to secrecy.

Personally I thought Diamond Hollow 2 was very easy. On the other hand Greg is far better than Rawismojo in my opinion. Try it out properly and we will see.

Thanks for using my hard badge name, Greg.
Also, badges seems to work good retroactively, even though I don’t have the hard badge yet.

I got more names for building rush badges.
A truck comes loaded with…. (a badge?) (money?) (gold?) pick an ending to this badge name. Or don’t.
No business like build/delivery business.

Yeah, I lie all the time. You guys should have figured this out by now!

Does that mean I should stop trying to figure out what you’ve done to your “G” then?

There is still an easter egg in my avatar that no one has found yet, but it’s extremely subtle. But if you find it, you’ll know you’ve found it.

Anyway, Building Rush had a nasty API bug where medals were reporting +1 if you replayed a level and earned that medal. Like if you earn a gold medal on level 1 twice, it’ll report golds as 2. I worked with the developer today getting that fixed, but now the day is over and I’m feeling like a failure!

I’ll try to get these up over the weekend since I’m so close on them. On that note, though, I was thinking about doing a medium badge for all golds, but I’m just now realizing at 5:00 on Friday that level 20 is actually pretty hard to get gold on — way harder than all the other levels. So at least I’m glad I playtested this.

Anyway, I would like to do an easy badge for deliveries, a badge for profit, and a badge for either bronze or gold medals. Probably 1 of these 2 possibilities:

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: All levels completed

Hard: Something profit-based — maybe $90k or so

ORRRRR

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: $40k profit

Hard: All levels gold’d

Or I could just do 2 mediums, with $40k profit for one and game completion for the other. I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW!!! I’m going home. Weigh in if you have a preference, or if you have suggestions for names.

Sounds good to me. I would like to see a hard badge. Fight those bugs, Greg!
Anyway, I think the badges should be called: Building cash and Keep on truckin’.

Though lrn2patience does apply. (chuckle)

edit: and now it’s moot too, since they’re up :-)

If you haven’t noticed, Greg is always a few days late these days. Too bad the games only shows when you earned badges and when the game was published and not when badges were added.

Run 2 is the easiest? you have to look at this it is the first page of most awarded impossible badges and run 2 is not in the first place, Pandemic 2 is. (i’m not good at english)

I look there everyday. It just that for me it took longer time with pandemic since it requires luck. And that was IMO, so you didn’t have to agree.

i don’t really have anything to say for oO; i’m kinda split between jayars2’s suggestions and bluji’s suggestions.

really all i want is a badge in run 3 called “A Breath of Fresh Nothing.” please just don’t make it impossible.

Yeah, run series already got impossible last time and that is the easiest on the site. It just takes about 2,5 hours. But sure. I will try to earn it anyway.

At this point, it’s almost difficult for me to determine where the line should be drawn regarding oO. I do think that a composite Endless + Endless Drunk + level deaths badge would be the best option for an impossible, since it would best demonstrate “total mastery” of the game. That said, if it had to be one or the other, I’d recommend going with the Endless modes over death counting. I would say something like

[ ] 80 points on Endless
[ ] 50 points on Endless Drunk
[ ] 25 deaths or fewer on Level 4
[ ] 50 deaths or fewer on Level 4 Drunk

would make for a reasonable badge here, although the 90/60/nothing else mentioned a couple places above wouldn’t be too unreasonable. As far as potential lower badges go, an easy for finishing level 1 would make some sense, even if it’s slightly harder than a typical easy, and would reward players frustrated by levels 3/4 with something for their efforts.

There have been a number of other recent games with badges potential: I’m thinking of
9 (3.81),
Vex 3 (3.80),
Puzzle Fuzz: Episode 2 (3.85), and
The Wizard (3.67)

in particular. The first three games all have a 3.8+ rating and working API. The Wizard’s rating is slightly too low at the moment, but it’s really an excellent and unique game, and I don’t think it should be overlooked.

EDIT: I see Puzzle Fuzz is already in the queue, as is Run 3. Definitely excited about the latter. :)

90 on endless drunk. AA rehabilitation cycle.

Medium 2 (Travel 500,000 ft): And I would fly 500,000 more…

Gregs puts them there when about to get badges in order to promote them. I think so at least.

I haven’t played the game but I am a masochistic gamer so I will just go through most badges whether the game is good or not. I have to agree the papa games has been better since the first game and I would gladly just get it badged and get over with it, cuz this is discussion seem to be heading in wrong direction.

Another thing, Greg. We both got the badge, but 1 awarded?

The hard badge will be slower to award because it wasn’t recorded in Kongregate’s high scores. Our system checks the high scores first, then awards you the badge if you’ve already placed a high score that would qualify you to earn a badge. The hard badge misses this check because it’s not in the high scores. However, the game itself retroactively submits your game completion progress once the game is loaded (I specifically asked the developer to do this). So that’s why it’s a bit slower.

And the # awarded stat is always delayed a bit.

I see. Good to know and keep up the good work.
