a game idea (in General)

i played this game called kingdom of loathing.... and i was wondering... other then the QB prizes and the supporters... could we have other titles or trophies it certainly helps game play to be interesting for new players that people can look at their trophy page.... example "having the largest amount of hard leather armor" or even "bought the most stuff from the shop in 24hours) it doesnt have to be a fighting goal... it would be so much fun

I can totally see myself winning the ''most typos'' award XD

It sounds interesting. Would the trophy page only be accessed by the person, or would it be seen by everyone like the transfer log?

lostling June 22 2007 10:50 PM EDT

in the search for user page... thats what makes it nice :)

Might as well add my usual response:

Why not?

lol... They did that on Neopets for games, and that was what helped it stay addicting for the time I played it (years ago, may I mention). I think that is a great idea. Might get a bit competitive, make people bicker though. All in all, I think it would be a good idea. Trophy cases. =) Fun.

I LOVE this idea. Would it be text trophies like "So-and-so won the Awesome Award on 22 June 2007." or would it be actual graphical trophies like on KoL and Neopets?

some simple graphics would help...

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 22 2007 11:14 PM EDT

I could settle for text-only awards.

MissingNo [Battle Royale] June 22 2007 11:21 PM EDT

Yeah, I think I prefer text only awards. With graphic trophies, you'd either 1) have to make a new trophy or every award, which would take a lot of time or 2) see spamming of the same monotonous trophy for each award. Plus, it takes up less room that way.

lostling June 22 2007 11:26 PM EDT

;) whatever :) i still think it would be nice

text would be better, seeing a random graphic in the game besides bot checks wouldn't fair to well, I don't think.

does not have to be a large picture... just small icons... jon does not even have to design them... he could open a competition for suggestions and icon designs :)

I like.

Might (stressing might here) keep a player or two around, however there are much more pressing issues at hand...like why only one out of every fifty signups finishes the tutorial...

lostling June 27 2007 9:26 PM EDT

personally i think during tutorial the chat should be open -.- its kinda lonely you know...

Be active in recruiting, and create dialog with the people. Go onto some forum, tell people what you want, and create discussion about CB elsewhere. The most successful games have many discussion threads about them in many locations. CB does not.
