Issues with authentication

Hello,

We are terribly sorry for any problems that you're facing at the moment. It appears that due to KAG being featured in flash sale and some minor on-going issues with our ISP where the authentication server resides, many of you are having problems with logging in.

We are aware that timing couldn't be worse but please bear with us. We're doing our best to fix the issues.

Cheers,
Furai

Build 1500

Hey everyone!

1500 days since we started KAG, who knew? A medium-size patch today, more mechanisms/TDM stuff but we're sorry to say that building them is gonna have to wait until next time. There's lots of fixes and tweaks inbound and a couple of things for modders to watch out for, so let's get cracking!


Lots more dastardly contraptions await!

More TDM maps!

There are quite a few more maps in the TDM pool, often utilising the new mechanisms stuff. If you haven't already, give TDM another go, it's quite a fresh mode now and the mechanisms help avoid maps becoming samey too fast.

New TDM Scoreboard!

There's a new TDM Scoreboard as an example of the new scoreboard override functionality! Let us know if there's any issues with it and see the script TDM_Interface for a code example - be sure to set showscoreboard to false in the corresponding gamemode.cfg if you do anything with it!

Various Mechanisms Bugs Fixed

A few of the new maps and some of the old ones brought out bugs in the mechanisms we hadn't seen before, these have been fixed this time around. Keep the reports coming if you see anything fishy!

Boulders Fixed

Boulders have had this a long time coming and you know it. Boulder-fu is still possible, but significantly less insta-kill. They also bounce off a bit which makes it much harder to chain, and a lot funnier to look at.

Slash Cancelling Bug Fixed

Only a few people knew about this, thankfully, but it's been removed. It won't be re-added if we can help it.

Buttons Fixed!

A long standing issue with the activate buttons has been found and fixed, which was a combined effort between myself and Skinney; they are now activated based on world distance and blob position, not screen distance, which means that zooming in and out isn't necessary for very small buttons to work any more!
A heads up to modders: this will break the positioning of anything that uses the activate buttons! Please revisit your mods and adjust the offset vectors, they're now in world space.

There are quite a few other minor bugs fixed as well, check the full changelog for those.

Have Fun!

“No other game allows you to build a castle, actively fight off invaders, and then jump onto a catapult to be flung over the walls of your rival’s castle to claim its inner sanctum as your own.”

It takes a while to get into, but this is one of the best games I have ever played. You have total freedom to build whatever you want, and there are multiple game modes (Although CTF is by far the best). The community is generally welcoming to new players, so don't be afraid to ask for help. You start with a couple of minutes to build up your castle, and then the game starts and everyone rushes to the center. You could build a tunnel to the other side, or a bridge, or try to rush them head on! Every match is different, and each server has different rules and maps. I had this game before it was on steam, and my hours are in the hundreds. The meta game constantly changes, as does the game. Sadly, the player base is only about 100 now, but there is never a problem finding a match, there are at least two full games running all the time. If you join, you can fix that problem! There is even a roleplay server! If you are on the fence about this, buy it, you won't regret it :D And you will make this awesome community grow!

If you're the kind of kid who drew little people fighting each other while your apathetic teacher regurgitated his syllabus, you're going to love this game.

Launched myself off a catapult. Landed on a guy, killed him, then glided over a body of water on my shield, chopped a guy, jumped onto a wall, then exploded.
420/69 would explode again.

Fun little game. Lots of kids though. You'll come across "go away my stone" kind of mentality and random votekicks if you tick off a wrong guy - server admin or one of his friends, and that would suck because there's only one or two servers that's worth playing in in any given time. I might be late for the party. Would've recommended this game when it first came out; despite some annoying bugs it still is a very well made fun multiplayer experience. Now, Feb 2015, no.

Pros: Fun! - and a ton of stuff that other folks have written about which I wouldn't bother to repeat.
Cons: Not too many people playing it nowadays. Primary demographic seems to be 10 year olds whom grief and votekick people for tryingh to help them win the match. Official servers might alleviate this problem but they are practically empty.
