Topic: Battle Dawn / Battledawn suggestion and Updates

In kong there’s only 2 and 3 tick/hour worlds available, I’d love to see the slower 1 tick/hour worlds for more casual players mentioned in server selection here.

Topic: Kongregate / You know what would be really awesome?

well I can’t even tell how much of a cliched sentence “you’re not alone” is, but I’ll still use it (it’s cliche because it’s true), call me around, death’s scared shitless of me, bring those consequences on, nothing is threatening to me.

Topic: Kongregate / Levels

levels are a testament of your skill as a gamer and define your identity as a kong user, they are a central part of the kongregate society’s hierarchy and are matter of honour and respect among members of the comunity.

or maybe they’re just flashy numbers that look pretty on your profile.

Actually the point of ads is being so repetitive that you get an ad block just to get rid of them, there you have the cold, hard truth, ads are just ads for ad blockers, what they actually say is just a distraction to make you sick of it.

Topic: Kongregate / You know what would be really awesome?

ehh… how does that text even relate to what you quoted? alright, I’ll humour you

Who are you talking to right now?

Someone who spends his time bitching in a flash videogame site’s forums?

Who is it you think you see?

I don’t see anyone, I’m reading comments on my computer screen

Do you know how much I make a year?

Do you know how much I care?

Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work?

That one’s easy, they’d fire you, because that what companies do when people don’t show up for work.

A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up.

If it’s as big as you want to make it sound then trust me, there’s no business that big that has anyone unreplaceable in it.

A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!

I really dislike shooting people, I mean, you take your distance and all you really do is pull a trigger, where’s the fun in that? plues you ruin the meat, try the knife, trust me, it’s way more exciting, plus you don’t have any sound to worry about (be careful when gutting, spilled intestines tend to smell like… well their contents)

I’m talking down to you because you’re just complaining without saying anyting helpful, it might have been my mistake to think you made this thread for a something more useful than bitching, I played it yesterday and got the badge without any trouble, so it can’t be that bugged.

And please, do elaborate on how I’m “criminal scum”, I’d love to see the thought train that got you to that conclusion.

Does anyone know what triggers this bug? I’ve played through the game about a dozen times and I’ve never seen it.

Every time I try to beat it, it freezes/gets stuck in an infinite loop.

every time you do what to beat it? stuck where? an infinite loop of what animation? You need to be way more detailed than that if you want to get any help, cyclonea’s post is a good example

which BotD would be talking about? I already have all the weeks badges and haven’t relly found any problems, maybe you should post what gets you into the infinite loop and someone could have the solution.

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Has anyone suggested warlords: epic confilct yet? a hard badge for finishing the campaign (maybe in hard) and the typical easy for x kills

Nerdook’s latest game super mega ultra battle robot 2.0 seems pretty good, maybe a medium for completion

Also the blind swordsman by evil dog, though it’s incredibly hard.

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

I tik the thing is you guys are seriously overestimating this games dificulty,

Also harder than: Line Game, Run 2, 99 bricks, DvM 2, Gravitee, Super Stacker 2, Tower Of Greed, Frantic 3, Fold, Hexiom, Meat Boy, Stramline, Orbular, Balloon Invasion, Sonny…

err… you sure? I don’t have any of those badges other than the sonny one, and I found hyppolita easy (and yes, I did try them all, and gave up).

Agreed, this should be a hard badge

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

Well in my case what makes it difficult is trying not to let the cursor come off the screen. But are you sure about that difficulty order? I still sustain hippolyta isnt as hard, remember we’re not talking about full completion/all achievements, it’s only finishing the story mode (the normal one, not hardcore) that was suggested as an imp.

That depends, for me Streamline was much easier than Hippolyta ^^"

Well I guess it depends on the person, I just finished hyppolyta in a single day (now going for hardcore), whereas I’ve been repetedly trying with streamline for the past 6 years now and I’ve only gotten the hard badge.

@mgbt211: one strategy that seems to be working for me is to keep using the sprint, and when it seems I wont make it in time to make the next move I release the D and that buys a small time o do it (a very small amount of time, but it seems to be enough). In that example it also has to do with how fast you killed the farmer.

Topic: Kongregate / Please play Hippolyta -- trying to figure out badge difficulty

well, I’ve completed the game before (and by before I mean around the time it came out), but I don’t think just finishing lvl 5 should be an impossible, maybe the hardcore story, one of the speedrun achievements or just the plain old “get all achievements” could be it.

And for comparison, there’s already an impossible that can be aquired in around five minutes, but finishing this game isn’t as hard as the perfect run in stremline.

Topic: Kings Of The Realm / Bug: Hero stuck on attack

One of my armies is stuck in an attack as well, since the devs seem to be checking this thread (proving they’re one of the few nice enough to actually check the players’ problems), what is it that’s causing this problem? and do you know if/when it’ll be fixed?

nope, that’s it, each level of armor gives the watch around 10+ hp I believe, so at lvl 4 they have over double their starting health, I’m assuming the other guy didn’t have his archers upgraded, their starting attack is 10, even if they’re effective, 10 points of attck doesn’t do much when the enemy unit has 80 health (and the good/bad vs unit typedoesn’t really seem to do much actually)

What does he do now to gain more exp and res?

I’d recommend attacking other players, this game is intended to focus on the pvp more than the orc camps, which are just a way of getting an extra boost

Topic: Eredan Arena / Rage doesn't seem to be working

Originally posted by Flubbery:

Noticed this with Brutus, not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but rage for me is just working like a strength bonus. Please correct me if I’m reading the card wrong, but as I understand it the character’s strength is supposed to go up EVERY time an attack occurs, but for me it’s just happening once at the beginning of the melee when the ability activates, then never again.

Rage activates every time you deal damage, a lvl1 brutus with his rage 75 activated will deal his usual 85 on his first attack, then the second will be 160, the third 235, and a fouth for 310, however, it only activates when you deal damage, that is, if the enemy has a shield and you attack does 0 damage there will be no effect

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ceiron Wars] Road to the Arena!

I’d like to ask why it is that the update scheduled for decemer 23 wasnt implemented yet, as well as the date that it’ll be apllied, and I’ve also noticed that the “step 2” one (and the arena itsled) doesnt have a planned date, is this still uncertain?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Ceiron Wars] Road to the Arena!

If liberating bases won’t be possible after the update I’d suggest you have something ready to stop those that will try to abuse that and capture right before the update is implemented without giving the other player a chance to retake the base.

Topic: Kongregate / Is anyone else fed with with how pathetic Kong has become?

So, all in all, the RPG genre has good prospect, while the Defense type is definitely growing. This has an explanation: Flash does not have enough power to support normal shooting and action games like we see in Xbox or something like that. The flash RPG is just a notch up from the text RPG, but it has already made good progress.

Tihs isn’t really the issue, what actually matters with the not-so-powerful engines is how the developers get around these problems, you don’t even need to look just among flash games, in certain older consoles (one of my favorites being the gameboy), develpoers COULDN’T have the amazing and realistic graphics of today’s games, the music was limited to mostly beeps and bops and of course 3D was unthinkable, but they handled with teh things they culd make better, the main one being the storyline, which plenty of newer games apparently aren’t so good at (I’m too poor to get the new pretty games though, so I’m going by what I hear around).

Flash isn’t so good, it’s about as good as a console from the 90s such as gameboy or NES, but that doesn’t mean bad, with good effort amazing games can still come out, you can take examples such as megaman, final fantasy, harvest moon or touhou, those games weren’t made with engines as powerful as the xbox or PS4, but they managed (and some I’d pick over the newest sequels of the same game every day) it’s at these games that flash developers should look to get the “how to manage with a weak engine” problem you mention here solved.
