Topic: Kongregate / What an OBNOXIOUS ad

Originally posted by ImplosionOfDoom:

I keep getting the ‘ad still doesn’t stop after hitting the close button’ glitch on other ads as well, and sometimes the audio will also stutter (for example the music on the home insurance ad that keeps bugging out).
Also sometimes the ad audio will manage to play over top of the game audio, so you’ll end up hearing both of them at once.
Sometimes the audio even takes a minute to cut out after refreshing / closing the web page itself.

However sometimes if you immediately refresh, you’ll get your game to re-load without waiting through an ad.

All that stuff happens to me most times I go to a game. It goes away after I duplicate the tab I’m in and close the previous tab one or two times. That Trove ad takes like 3 – 5 tab duplications to not be there, because clicking the CLOSE thing never works the first time. With more and more people complaining about his whole ad thing I wonder if it isn’t some thing Kong is doing to annoy people into buying Kong PLUS for the “no ads” part of it… Probably not, but it makes one wonder why ad issues are so much more different and worse than they used to be.

Trove?

YES That’s the one; Jesus F Christ, I think the person who made the ad is a jerk because only someone like that would purposely put music like THAT in their ad. Dear frickin’ God it sounds like someone took one of those extremely annoying portable keyboard pianos and let a retarded 5 year old continually mash his hands on random spots. Like I said, how can that even be called music or even anything other than a sound that would make the worst asylum patient wail and shriek in absolute insanity and repeatedly attempt to ram himself head first into the walls to try and break their own neck until it was over? With their ability to hear ultrasonic frequencies, I wouldn’t be surprised if a dog’s brains literally splatted out it’s ears or a bat’s head or eyes exploded hearing that audio diarrhea/puke.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / How long until Dread Knight?

I should tell you something about Dread Knight, and this goes for all future heroes you will hire. When you hire a hero you see the next one to hire. When you first see the next one, you’ll see the damage it will do when you hire them and, like DK, it will be almost monumental. When you finally get enough money to hire Dread Knight, you will be so much stronger from the natural process of getting enough cash that the damage that WAS so monumental will be just, meh. You may think, “Wow, THIS is what I waited so long for in such grandeur?”

Oh, and here’s the second thing I wanted to add to the DK gap for your information. You may think that the long waiting periods to hire are over but sorry, they’re not. :) All heroes after that will take as long to hire after each other as DK did after Frostleaf. Pre-DK, you had to save 1,000 times more than the hiring cost of the hero you are on for the next hero. To hire DK and every hero afterward, you will have to save 1 quadrillion, that’s 1 with fifteen zeroes after it: 1,000,000,000,000,000 times more money than the last hero was worth to hire the next hero.

If you don’t already see the big picture, this is a game where you need a VERY high threshold of waiting, repetition and clicking. This game was created to be one where you will have to put hours of many days of many weeks/months to get to the end. The definition of the end is open-ended and technically doesn’t have an end, but a few have said an understood “end” it is getting all in-game achivements, most say it is when you reach zone 4725 (one person said 4730 with Bubos, another said up to 4734; I haven’t reached nearly that far yet). Somewhere around zone 4725 – 4735, the enemy(s) there has InfiniK HP and cannot be killed.

So, it really depends on what you want to do in this game and get out of it when you understand enough about it and it’s scope.

Topic: Kongregate / What an OBNOXIOUS ad

There seems to be only one ad that and it’s been there for a long time. It has a minecraft look to it as everything is made up of blocks. My god, have you heard the music for it? F*** is it obnoxious!. Pleas I beg you Kong replace the ad with some thing that doesn’t make me want to take an ice pick to my ears. The worst part is, it doesn’t go away when I click the (CLOSE) thing. and I’m not the only one to have that problem either. Also it’s not my add-ons or anything like that.

Topic: Kongregate / "Edit" option for game comments

I realized that after you post a comment, if you want to edit it, you can post together all of what you want to say in all the other comments into one more comment and then go to your “my comments” part of Kongregate and delete all the others that you essentially combined.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Which should I pick with my Rubies?

Thx so far everyone; whe I posted this, I’d already bought x2 damage for 50 rubies before getting these 49 that I have now. Per ascension, I get to between zone 1,400’s – 1,600’s depending on how motivated I feel to ascend and wait an hour or two to get roughly back there. I’ve already moved all Gilds from Atlas to Terra (about 185 Gilds total).

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Which should I pick with my Rubies?

I have 49 rubies; when I finally get one more, probably about Christmas (LMAO), what should I pick with the 50 rubies? I’m in the early parts of late game. I’ve heard people say in late game you should wait for 50 rubies and buy the free HS/Ascension. Yes? No? What do you think, pros?

Topic: Kongregate / Ones' max # of comments for a game per day should be less because of this...

No; I may be making this sound like a huge deal, but it’s just an irritation that I thought I’d get others’ opinions of.

Well, the problem is people could just make more alts. I mean, we do have quite a few people with more than a handful of alts.

I understand that people make several alts for various reasons, honest/ethical or otherwise, but…

if anyone chooses to go and make more alts just to over-post or talk crap to someone and come back under a different name or be able to downvote comments many times by themselves (which I think many multiple-alt-bearing people do given the ridiculous negative votes on regular comments), then they need to kill themselves or something. That’s an even bigger waste of the precious seconds of your limited Human life span than those MMO players that are pathetically far gone, like in that World of Warcraft episode of South Park called “Make Love, Not Warcraft”. (check that episode out and you’ll see what kind of person I’m talking about if you don’t already have an idea XD)

Topic: Kongregate / Ones' max # of comments for a game per day should be less because of this...

The max # of comments for a game per day is somewhere around 12 – 15 I think. I’ve seen one or two others with a few more than the above pic and just like this example, it’s always 70% – 100% some kind of crap or something. I think it should be reduced to around 5; is there really any reason anyone needs to comment about a game more than 5 times in a day? Whatcha think?

Topic: Clicker Heroes / OK.... Weird

At this point in time that is her swimwear for this summer season we are in. It will change over time like many of the heroes. Alexa and Masked Samurai were wearing winter outfits this past winter season. Also, that’s a one piece she’s wearing. Now, you wanna see one of the girls in a bikini, you know Orntchya Gladeye Didensy Banana, or Banana as everyone calls her for short? She has a great bikini outfit from the most recent patch, so it might be only for the summer season. Put a Gild on her and check her out; she’s a babe! ;)

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Why do I have to salvage to ascend

Originally posted by yeasy:

It’s probably to prevent switching relics during play, eg. use relics to farm souls, then switch to active (3min+ lucky strikes).

Omfg, really? That’s the other very purpose that goes hand in hand with equipment. It’s called: being versatile; that’s how the good players do it; you use what you need at the moment, and then you switch to what you need when the situation changes. Anyone who has played Final Fantasy 13 would know the dire need to suddenly change Paradigms, the biggest example being a fight with the Adamantitan (the largest, hardest hitting and by far highest HP having Adamant quadruped).

The other thing I was wondering: if we have to “salvage” relics to Ascend, and we only get one relic per Ascension, then why is the Junk Pile so large? The only reason I can see is for getting a large amount of Forge Cores. This is why I think they will be used for making, or “Forging” relics, because of the Junk Pile being so large; I mean, they had to have made it that large for a reason…

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Sky Garden

This game DEFINITELY needs a badge (I’m not sure whether it should be Medium or Hard) for completing the game. It should be mentioned that the last “level” that is one line with things spaced out in an impossible-to-solve way is literally impossible.

I think they both need an Easy badge for getting a collective score of (insert predetermined #) and a Medium badge for completing all 50 levels with 100% score.

Topic: Clicker Heroes / Terra

1* = 1 x (10 to the 63rd power); that’s a 1 with 63 zeroes after it. e69 would be 1,000,000* Anything past 99,999* will be in e## form. So yeah, you have quite a bit to go yet. :( Don’t be dispirited about Terra being expensive. That will become a breeze to cover when you go for later heroes; it always is. >:D

If you want to hire all heroes, much less get to the highest zone possible (without hacking or raising Iris past 4725), you’ll have to be in it for the long haul and put some real dedication to it. :D

Topic: Kongregate / Conditions for joining Kongregate...

By now, many people have to have seen these kind of posts—> http://imgur.com/SJV38bk and if you check out the poster’s profiles, they look like this or just about http://imgur.com/Y1OYIkH The common things are: favorites, friends, fans and badges are 0, they are level 1, they have no badges after a long enough time, they have the exact same meaningless post spammed in one or more places and most of all, their join date is the same as their posted comment date, like they only joined that one day to post that one thing on one or more parts of Kong.

Some players might get Shouts or PMs like I did that are like this http://imgur.com/6BKyQKR It’s the exact same format as a scam reply from a posting on the casual encounter section of Craigslist.

Now, these end up getting flagged by someone or another shortly after posting, but how about this proposal…

Newcomers can contact Kong staff or support with those various email addresses if they have issues, but cannot post VISIBLE PMs/Shouts or forum posts until they have earned badges in at least 5 different games. They can still post comments and forum posts, but they will be invisible or say “pending” or something and once they have a badge from that 5th game, it will be like normal. Or just not be able to post at all until the 5 game badge thing.

Another thing could be to have their IP address to know if they’re joining under a different email address and name and stuff.

An alternative to this whole thing could be to have everyone’s first 10 PMs/Shouts and first 5 forum posts “pending approval” or some such, just to see if they are spammers. A red flag of this would be to notice if they post several, one right after another.

Topic: Technical Support / Is there a way to delete game messages?

I know you can delete the other PMs you get, but not the game ones. If there is, I obviously missed something that may be in plain sight. If there is a way to delete game messages, can someone tell me how? Thanks.
