Hello, may I request badges for a game called Astroflux (has been on the front page twice I think?) Current rating is 4.2
Astroflux
Its been out on kong for ages (over a year now?) and I know the developers do want badges.

Might be best to ask them, but I’m thinking something along the lines of:
Easy badge – Unlock Durain
Medium badge – Kill the Fanatic Tank
Hard – Reach lv120 and have 1K PvP kills
Impossible – Reach lv120, have 100% in your encounters list and exploration list

I’m sure the community can come up with better. These are more gridny than hard. Except maybe the encounters list (unless you’re carried I suppose, but will still take a while).
Also, as the game is being updated with new content (such as new enemies etc) should the 100% encounter list (a list of the different types of enemies you have killed) be on there?

Best just ask the devs who can then ask the community for their ideas on what might be good ideas for badges.
Thanks

Tell if the API is working first or it could never get badges.

Strike Force Kitty 2 definitely needs badges since I notice that the comments and the rating do not agree with each other. Badges will do justice to the game.

Road of Fury 2 is also doable, albeit the game is a bit short.

Abandoned should not get badges as even the Submachine series does not have badges.

Sure, badges will do justice, for SFK2 has suffered a 0.4 rating drop. Not quite enough in my opinion.

I don’t know why it has three badges. It only deserves one, since it’s broken, has an egoistic, shameless dev, and laggy.

I remember the submachine games was promised badges when reuploaded with api.

Its been a couple days since The Enchanted Cave 2 came out and I really think it has the potential for an impossable badge.

Badge Difficulty:
Imposable

Possible Requirements
1. Unlock the entire skill tree
2. Collect every artifact in the game
3. Level up 100 times
(those are all separate, so you wouldn’t need to do em all to get it)

Possible Names
Skilled Adventurer
Artifact Madness
Level Junky

Based on the fact that all those requirements just sound time consuming rather than difficult beyond completing the game which has been suggested as hard and the fact you have no impossible badges and therefore may not appreciate the difficulty usually associated with an impossible badge I think that your suggestion will be ignored.

Did I say that this was my only account? I have imposable badges on my other older accounts that I havnt been on in forever, so yes, I do know how hard they are to get…
And there are some Impossable badges out there that are time consuming…

You can’t even spell “impossible”. Seems legit.

Sorry guys, the last 2 months have been pretty bad. StrikeForce Kitty 2 wasn’t as close as I thought it was, but I think/really hope it’ll be ready tomorrow. I contacted the dev about Sentry Knight 2 and haven’t heard back yet. I played a bunch of Witch Hunt today; that one’s a high priority with a perfect API implementation. I’ll try to catch up on some others too, but I’m pretty busy with non-badge stuff lately.

Good, time to update that list then. Will you use any of the suggested badge names when it’s fixed?

RIP badges.

If we go back to last year a bit, there have been 5 badges in the past 36 days, basically averaging 1 badge per week over that stretch (which can be extrapolated out to ~50 badges for the year). If just this year is taken into account, we’re looking at being on pace for 73 badges in the year, which is roughly 100 less than were added last year.

Hopefully these numbers don’t actually mean there are going to be so few, but considering greg said that he was going to add badges “tomorrow” on the 14th, and it’s been a week since then still without anything, I’m not sure what to think.

Yea I remember the good old days when there were atleast 2-3 games badged per week. Now we are lucky if we get 1. Its pretty sad considering badges are a big appeal of this site.

Well, Greg had Rawismojo to help him back then, but is alone now…

I’m not sure what the status is on the games in limbo at the moment, but I’ve been playing Sentry Knight 2 a lot, so I’ve got a pretty good feel for it if the API issues get resolved. A basic kills or early levels easy would fit; after that it gets a little more complicated. The difficulty is adjustable—it always defaults to 3, but it can be moved from 1 to 10, where 1 is easier and 10 is harder. Levels, star tasks, and campaign-based medals that might otherwise pose a challenge can be affected significantly by moving the difficulty slider. That said, playing on 3 the whole way, it took me a long time to work through the game. Now, I was doing what I usually do—which involves a lot of grinding and repetition and experimentation—but based on my own experience game completion would be relatively long for a medium, but not so long that it would invalidate that categorization.

Since getting through the game “quickly” would require a lower difficulty setting (which in turn reduces the gold/EXP payout), survival mode might be a good avenue for a hard. My first try on survival I just managed 30 minutes, although I was fairly built up in terms of upgrades (significantly moreso after survival of course). Since I assume it would be much easier as full upgrades/talents are approached, the all medals idea for a hard might have merit. A hard could be dispensed with altogether, since everything is probably just a matter of time, but campaign completion is long enough that just E-M (and maybe E-M-M) doesn’t feel worth the effort.


I also thought that, since a lot of the queued games are currently having API issues or need further playtesting/consideration, I’d recommend a few older games for now.

I’ll start with Raider: Episode 1, by pseudolonewolf (Mardek, Clarence’s Big Chance). It’s just at the ratings threshold, but it is there, and that speaks to the quality of craftsmanship considering it’s a very hard game. It has working API, although the stats implemented don’t cover anything easier than game completion, so there’s not really an easy badge option available. I’d recommend a medium for completing the game on any difficulty level, and a hard badge for achieving a score of 100 (score only totals after game completion, so the medium badge is inherent to it. However, negative scores are very common, and 100 points is a very difficult challenge for most people). If an impossible was desired, it would make sense to use an S-Rank (FinalRank = 5), although I’m not convinced that would be necessary.

EDIT: Name Suggestions for the recommended criteria

Space Ghost: Host to Toast (medium)
Pirates of Dark Matter (hard)
Raiders of the Lost Mark (impossible)

Greg completely ignored this when I suggested it. Just saying.

Thirded, thanks!

I’m going to look at StrikeForce Kitty 2 this week, also.


Easy: 2 full set or 10 pieces of clothes
Medium: third boss (after level 12) or 10 artifacts
Hard: final boss / complete all levels or complete all sets


Another game suggestion: Noggins
Nice concept. Fast game. Suitable for easy and hard (even impossible) badge. Just try it, give it 15 minutes. (Popularity will increase in the next days. Game has only been uploaded yesterday)

Originally posted by Bluji:

I wonder why it does that – Noggins has been on the site for years, and the comments prove that (there are some from 2010, and perhaps even older).

This seems a bit like Hippolyta. Old fastpaced game suddenly brought up and given an imp…hmmm.

I’ve played it a bit, and there’s still a memory leak problem (the main problem for me on Strikeforce Kitty 1 in my opinion) on Strikeforce Kitty 2 for me.

fixed by dev today, it runs like hell

In my opinnion, Strikeforce Kitty 2 need badges, it’s one of the best games I have played here since Fancy Pants, GemCraft and Cyclomaniacs. And it’s been a long time playing and testing, believe me.

Maybe a badge for getting 100% on X levels? Making X equal nine and tying it into the whole “nine lives” concept seems like a possible idea.

“This feline life of nine”
“Victory shall be nine”
“You only live nines”
“Nine(Nein) to defeat”

Have the bugs and the related badge problems for Strikeforce Kitty 1 already been solved?

Somehow I have serious doubts that this game will have less problems even after badging.

This is a separate game. I see your point, but I don’t think it should affect Strikeforce Kitty 2.

Road of fury 2 has been released with a rating of 3.9 and working API. Not too many plays yet, so we should wait until the rating settled. But guessing it will keep a good rating looking at developers past work.

I am sure this has been said before, but I would definitely advocate badges for Clicker Heroes. It seems to be a steadily growing popular idle game and has a 4.4 rating, which I think is good enough to have a few badges.

But how? I thought the game still had no API and without it no badges whatever you say.

I would also recommend badging Picma. Some users even said the sequel has more flaws than the original (correct me if I am wrong).
Also Raider Episode 1 and robot pet.

The game needs api if it should be even possible to add badges.

On a side note, I think games with scores of at least 4.3 should be deserving of “Impossible” badges, as they’re the best of the best.

Impossible badges are awarded to hard games.

Hey guys, there might be a lack of badges this week, sorry. :( I spent a bunch of time on Zombie Tactics and those badges are ready to go once the API is fixed, but it’s currently not reporting retroactively. A Song of Fire and Ice might get badges this week, but the developer is planning another batch of content, so I might wait until then (or maybe I’ll do two sets or something).

I also have some non-badge-related job responsibilities to catch up on this week that I’ve been neglecting, and we have Thursday/Friday off for Thanksgiving. So… it’s not looking good. I will have to double-down next week.

Give it all you got on a Dance of fire and ice. Everyone makes mistakes.
