    So builders won't receive any coins for hits with the pickaxe? And you'll get less from pushing someone at full health off a cliff than from slashing them to death?

    re it hasn't changed from anything previous, the only difference is you don't get over kill damage.

    I found a new bug, Well, a problem really

    I was playing Ikos ctf, the server glich out, Kept kicking people, After 2 mins, It returned to normal, but, after i was attacking reds side of the base, "Vamist has joined red team"

    "Vamist has been named Vamist2"

    I look at the leader board My normal name was fine, My USERNAME was Vamist2



    does that mean i can change my forums name to Vamist2?

    the game removed my admin because my username was not Vamist >.<

    well, gg, The server crashed, Kicked me, So i was able to rejoin, But in the game, I was still their, so there was 2 of me, meaning i was renamed vamist2 because you cant have the same username

    The other day someone joined as "Unnamed Player" in both sections but he could see his usual username on his end.

    Engine bug. Probably won't be fixed (doubt it's easily doable), but if it happens a lot with TR for some reason it might be

    Has the fact that you still get money by spamming useless blocks behind spawn been addressed? Currently a player that never leaves spawn and just spams platforms makes more money than a knight who wipes out the enemy team. The abysmal new coin system didn't change how money from building works, which means that going builder and shitting out blocks is the most effective way to get money.

    One thing at a time, Shnitzel. Brokenly OP builder is another thing to address all in/of itself.

    A lot of this rebalance stuff hasn't impacted my playing of the game too much tbh. Honestly, if i didn't read the logs i wouldn't notice half the stuff like the money change and all. I've been all for the changes to mines and trampolines but i do think that builds should go over much more extensive testing before release. This would probably mean more testers (wink wink) that are actually going to do private matches testing the builds and making suggestions to the interns instead of the cluster fuck of ramblings here. I know the interns cannot work on everything or do everything perfect the first time.
    In my opinion, there isn't much rebalancing left to do. Most of it just makes people angry anyway. The biggest problem in KAG right now is the builder class. It hardly works and most of the time is a game of luck. That doesn't really fit in with the skillful gameplay the other classes are.
    On another note, the menu. I've watched far too many people on twitch playing the game for the first time, doing save the princess, beating the "single player" in 15 minutes and feeling completely ripped off. IMO the save the princess and all that should be accessed by a smaller button on the side labeled "extras" Also I've seen many people confused by the server browser. It may seem extremely simple to those here that have been playing and know all the quirks with the settings but people aren't used to it are confused and end up seeing "5 servers with 0 people" and assume the game is completely dead. That's all for now.

    but isnt the "simple join" button there for that reason?
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 6, 2016, Original Post Date: Jan 6, 2016 ---
    If you have a bad connection to all the servers as I have, the simple join does not work because always says "no low ping server match with your criteria"... maybe you could change this to join to the less ping server although it has a bad connection.

    Are you sure you're running the latest KAG version? What version are you on?

    Honestly, if you think that the discussion here is a clusterfuck then you really don't want to be involved in organising regular, sufficiently large, groups of testers to fulfil your "much more extensive testing" mandate (by which I assume you mean "x times more test runs than is currently done prior to a release"). Why? Because it's like herding cats. Hundreds of cats. Through a cornmaze. And all the cats have blowtorches tied to their tails. Calling trying to organise that shit a 'clusterfuck' is, at times, wildly generous/optimistic.

    (No. I'm not bitter at all. :QQ:)

    Yeah im on the latest version. I had to close the server browser and reopen it for it to show any servers. The refresh button didnt even do the job. And when i reopened the server browser us ctf official had 17/20 players. Many new people would just see that 0 servers 0 players and just quit most likely.

    Maybe a public test ctf would be a good idea then.
