Topic: Anti-Idle: The Game / Game Bugs

I started getting daily shockwave crashes when idling within the last week. Wondering if it is just me, usually over night or when I’m away at work.

There needs to be a page like this for each element type in the Wiki. This post was good, but needs to be in the wiki to stay up to date.

Topic: Mystic Guardians / Weekly 25tt Limit

It’s extremely bad, it forces you to sell weekly, it limits selling an older guardian that’s gained more levels than 25. It keeps you from using a basic game mechanic to farm if that’s how you want to play. They might as well just remove the ability to sell a guardian. If someone wants to spend a lot of time farming up a set of guardians to see which one it best, they would have to hold onto them for a long time to get the value out of the ones they didn’t want. They are then stuck with a bunch of guardians filling up slots that they don’t need or want. It then slows you down from farming up the next guardian type you want.

Topic: General Gaming / Official Enigmata Stellar War Thread

I’ve read through the posts and didn’t see or missed the following:
- On the infected fion dump level the fion’s should not be pulled in by the ships that can do so.
- I still haven’t figured out what is required to get more than perfect on a level.

Topic: Spiral Knights / crafting vs buying in auction house

You have to realize that crafting is just another way of converting CE to crowns. If you are going to use CE, you will make back your money on the recipe by using it to craft again in the future. If you aren’t using CE, you won’t be able to craft much.

we’ve had lots of updates, and yet no one has brought back one great feature, i want to see my fav’d game list in the order that i faved it again… i don’t want to sit and shift through 5-6 pages of games to unfave something that i just fav’d a day previous just because it’s an old game, but isn’t old enough to be on page like 16 or whatever. if i had just faved it, or that was the last one i faved, or whatever i would know exactly where on the list it would be if we had it by when it was faved. this was something that was removed when kong was bought because they were moving servers, at least that was the answer i got for why the feature was removed, i’m pretty sure by now it’s been moved especially with this brand new updated look. please please please bring it back.

I completely agree, it makes it hard for me to keep track of my games when anything past the first few is thrown into a large dark closet. If it kept track of when you favorited games the same way that it kept track of when you rated or got achievements then it’d be easy to program. …

Related to the above, which is exactly the problem I also have. What I really want is a way to ‘favorite’ games I like, and ‘bookmark’ games I want to check out later. I favorite a lot of games because I just want to keep a link to them for later if I get to them. I can do that for 5, but with the new site redesign it’s an extra click to get to my profile that shows the 5 games I most recently fav’ed.

Topic: Call of Gods / [Suggestion] Have a suggestion? This is the place.

I read through the auction house suggestions, and the searching and sorting would really help, but there’s still some major deficiencies:
1. You can’t actually put anything up for auction, some items should be auctionable over a 12 hour period for instance.
2. Due to the silver requirements that are very high, only VIP members can really be sellers. To address this it would be nice to be able to place ‘want to buy’ entries for non-vip members to sell into. Otherwise chat gets filled up with people wanting to know if there’s a buyer for their item before they waste silver.
3. Lack of granularity for lower value items. So much is put up for 1g because that’s the lowest price you can choose. A silver market, or allowing decimal pricing would help that.
4. Inventories need to be expandable beyond 180 items for people who want to be traders in the game.
5. Some things sell rather quickly, but others are sold less frequently, 24 hours is too short for some type of item. Like books, and some gems.

Topic: Call of Gods / [New feature] Alliance War

I don’t think everyone should be panicking over this feature so quickly. As I remember it, the winning bidder is the one who pays, so you can build up your silver for a higher bid.
It takes time for alliances to adapt to the new features. We should wait and see how useful or fun this feature becomes. The only mechanic in this game that worries me a bit is that alliances just keep getting bigger as they level. This seems to allow for an all powerful alliance to emerge as eventually new players stop joining old servers and existing players wander off.

Topic: Call of Gods / Warning: choose skills carefully

Warning: Skills won’t train above level II if you don’t follow the recommended specialty guideline. And if you want to change to another skill it costs 10g. I didn’t find this out until I was level 50 and had used several non-recommended skills on my 6 heroes.

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

Is there a list anywhere on Kong of the games that are featured on the main page? I’m looking for one from less than a week ago where you start with a small spaceship (green) and you drag stuff around with a tractor beam, and add parts to your ship by dragging them to in it a repair depot and ‘reconfiguring’.

Edit: I’m still interested in the 1st part of my question, but I found the game ‘Shellcore Command’. There was a dark corner of my cache I had missed searching.

Yes, announcing soonish

OK, that’s great to hear.

It looks like some gold rings and candy canes were compensated for those who didn’t get the holiday quests, but not the new years magical items. Those items were the only ones I cared about because you can only get anything like those from the holiday quests. Is this still being addressed?

This is still FAIL in my opinion.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of Gaia] 2nd castle completely destroyed?

I thought about this too, it sounds like the equivalent of mutually assured destruction. 2 big guilds going at it would definitely be able to raze 2nd castles one at a time. I don’t fully understand how the defending heros work, but I’d think attrition wins in the end.
Is it ‘easy’ for an organized guild to hold a 2nd castle? And what constitutes taking it over? i.e. do you still get 1/5 resources only, but if they fall to a low level you occupy?

The ‘Equip’ function progressively lags with each ‘unequip’. After unequiping about 2 heros it takes a very long time for icons in the inventory to reappear. Reload returns responsiveness.

When I click your rank, then enter rank displayed into search by rank it displays other player.

How about a rank range, rather than just one number. What is that good for?
