Topic: Kongregate / New Downloadable Game - Bomb Buddies

Originally posted by Maik50:

The gameplay itself seems fun and satisfying (because it’s MOBA styled game) but still, it’s downloadable game where there is one concern that touches me: Use of hard drive space

I’m all out of it, and there is only a small chance that I am able to get more. So for now, I am against badges for downloadable content (excluding Kong arcade, including Escape)

The file size of SmashMuck is 2GBs. If you compare that to WoW (20GBs), TF2 (14GBs), Left 4 Dead (20GB), SMC is really small.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]Leagues


Photobucket

Each month, beginning at launch, SmashMuck Champions will have running League play. The League determines which Game Type is ranked in that given month, what prizes are awarded, and the League Ladder.

Leagues provide additional benefits for any player’s participating in the Game Type that is sponsored. The First League is the SmashMuck Invitational.

• +20% bonus to Workout Drops

• +20% Bonus CC each Game Played

Ranked Games:

Each League has one sponsored Game Type. When players select the sponsored Game Type from the Matchmaking system, they will immediately be added to the League Ladder and Ranked. Ranked Games are played to determine a player’s spot on the League Ladder. The player’s current spot on the Ladder is determined by a number of factors:

Ladder Rank:

As players play and win more games, their Ladder Rating will increase and move them up the Ladder. A player’s Ladder Rating is determined by the total number of games played in the ladder and the number of wins/losses that occur during the course of play. In general, players ascending the ladder will gain points faster until they begin to reach the middle of the ladder. In the middle, players that lose a game will lose more points than they would gain for winning. At the very top of the ladder, players will lose two or three times more points if they lose a game than if they win a game. This helps push teams and players towards their natural levels of wins and losses. As more games are played in the Ladder, the values of win/losses will increase in range (more points on the low end for winning). The actual math behind needs to be researched and tweaked until this works correctly. We will use the same standard of ELO rating that we use for a single player’s Overall Rating.

At the end of the League, players ranked in the Ladder will receive rewards based on their spot in the Ladder:

• Top 1% – Gold Invitational Logo, League Master Trophy, “Invitational Master” Title.

• Top 10% – Silver Invitational Logo, League Champ Trophy, “Invitational Champ” Title.

• Top 50% – Copper Invitational Logo, League Contender Trophy, “Invitational Contender” Title.

• Participant (at least 5 Ladder Games), League Participant Trophy, “Invitational Participant” Title.

The Bonus you’ve received will be awarded in a pop-up the next time a person logs into the game. This pop-up explains the end of the League and your final rank. Additionally, any Titles/Trophies earned will be added to the player’s account at this time and displayed on this pop-up.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]Alliances

Hey Champs, we’ve added our Alliances feature. Alliances will allow you to connect as a guild-like team with other players. Members of any Alliance will be able to see:

Average Member Rating
Average Member Honor
Alliance Record (all records begin AFTER they join the Alliance)
Alliance PB Record
Alliance Siege Record
and Alliance Destroyer Record

But wait that’s not all. Members will also be able to see:

Member Honor Bonus
Alliance Time Played- This is the total for every members Time Played.
Highest Ladder Place/Member (Current Ladder)- This indicate what is their highest placement in the current league ladder.
Highest Ladder Place/Member (All Time)

Players with the highest Win Streak, Most Played Time and Most Played Time with any Champion will be displayed in your Bragging Rights section.

Also, a player may get a boost to their Honor by being part of an Alliance. Alliances can contribute a Maximum of 100 Bonus Honor. Alliances have this Honor bonus calculated based on the number of players in the Alliance and the activity of the players in the Alliance. For each player in the Alliance that has been active in the past 30 days will grant everyone in the Alliance 5 Bonus Honor. This Bonus Honor caps at 100 or 20 active members.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Smashmuck Champions]SMC Honor System

Honor System

Smashmuck is going to thrive on having a large and active community. We support this aspect of the game by providing incentives for players to play the game with a positive, friendly attitude and good sportsmanship.



Honor Rating:


Each player has an Honor Rating. This rating is determined by how well received the player is in the game community. Each player begins with an Honor Rating of 1000. The Honor Rating can go as high as 2000+ and as low as 0.


How to gain Honor Rating:



  • Lots of Friends! – Each time another player adds you to THEIR Friend’s List, your Honor rating will increase. For each player with you on their Friend’s List, your Honor increases by 10. A maximum of 40 other players can add you to their list netting you 400 Bonus Honor. Note: Only active accounts will contribute to this number! Any account that has not logged into the game within the past 30 days will not contribute to your Honor Rating (if they log in later, they will contribute again). So keep making new friends!
  •  

    • Game Participation – Each time a player finishes a game to completion (win or loss), they will gain 4 Honor. This bonus to Honor is capped at 400 Bonus Honor after 125 games.

     

     

    • Joining an Alliance – A player may get a boost to their Honor by being part of an Alliance. Alliances can contribute a maximum of 200 Bonus Honor. Alliances have this Honor bonus calculated based on the number of players in the Alliance and the activity of the players in the Alliance. For each player in the Alliance that has been active in the past 30 days will grant everyone in the Alliance 5 Bonus Honor. This Bonus Honor caps at 100 or 20 active members.

     

     

    • Exceptional Behavior – We grant players a maximum of 200 Bonus Honor for exceptional behavior or sportsmanship. We track this through several different metrics and log tracking and reporting. Bonus Honor granted in this way will remain on the account for a period of time before fading away.

     

    How to lose Honor Rating:

    • Number of players Ignoring You – Players have an ignored limit of 3 before they begin to be penalized for being a bother to other players. Each player after the first 5 will cause you to lose 15 Honor for each player with you on their Ignore List. A maximum of 40 other players can add you to their Ignore List causing you to lose 600 Bonus Honor. Note: Only active accounts will contribute to your Honor Penalty. Any account that has not logged into the game within the past 30 days will not contribute to your Honor Penalty (if they log in later, they will contribute again).
    • Leaving Games Early – Players leaving games early will lose Honor. The first 3 games you leave early are not counted against you. After that, you will lose 20 Honor for leaving a game before its completion. A maximum of 20 games left early can contribute to your Honor Rating is this way (-400 Honor Loss). This is tied to the same pool as the game participation, so lost honor can be recovered.

    • Reported/ TOS Violation – If players report you for violating our TOS and we confirm these reports then you may be penalized up to a maximum of 200 Honor Loss. This Honor Penalty will be removed over a period of time based on the severity of the violation. Note: Fraudulent reports are a violation of the TOS and will be subject to this same penalty! Attempting to game the Honor System is also against the TOS (and really easy for us to see).


    Summary of Bonuses and Penalties:

    • Friends/Ignores: + 400 /- 600 (are you fun to play with?)
    • Game Participation/Leaving: +500 /- 400 (do you stick around for the entire game?)
    • Alliance: +100 (do you participate in a community?)


      Store Discounts and Forgiveness:

      We want to reward players for being good members of the community! Players with an Honor Rating of 1000 or higher will receive a discount in the game store. This discount on items lasts until their Honor Rating drops below a discount threshold.<center>

      Honor Titles:


      Each Honor level is represented by an Honor Title. This title is a general description of the player’s current Honor and reliability while playing the game. Players can only see another player’s Honor Title and not their current Honor Rating<center>
