The unexamined computer game is not worth playing.


the next step is to grab exact figures from the game code and put it all into a system of differential equations

fully optimized gameplay! 4% more effective than simply focusing on buying time machines with a few cursors on the side!


Time for new calculations:



Also, new achievements :



There's also new upgrades, including a new kitty and grandmas getting efficiency doubled again (yay anti-grandmas)



more new upgrades than the game admits to
wonder if that's a bug or a feature


most of the new achievements are just shadow achievements that got moved over
game mechanics got changed to make a couple of them easier


gold hoard is neat

anywho

same half-assed cursory analysis as before:
Code:

Game.HardReset();
Game.RuinTheFun();
for (var i = 0; i < Game.ObjectsById.length; i++) {
  Game.Earn(1e12);
  for (var n = 0; n <= 1e12; n+= Game.ObjectsById[i].price ) {
    Game.ObjectsById[i].buy();
  }
}




but this is deceptive because the most expensive antimatter condenser upgrade costs 40 times the amount spent on anything here

so let's kick up the cookies spent on each thing a thousandfold
maybe cursors and grandmas will do bett--


Oh.

I was
uh
I was going to say cursors and grandmas would do, uhhh
worse , relatively, when scaled up

totally definitely what I was going to say

So I've become the new sinfest clan leader by default. I think my account may have been cleaned out in a hack, not sure

It's a VERY, VERY deep rabbit hole, but the forums are friendly enough and they're a good
wiki

You will be giving them your money and thanking them for it. If anything, maybe ennui after a year or two of playing, but there's all sorts of regular events and what not, plus a huge and helpful fan base. The lore is deep and broad and you get more and more stuff through consecutive play throughs. the game caters to all types, there's lots of guild stuff, lots of PVP stuff, lots of solo stuff, lots of stuff for long time players, and they keep adding more. The main 2 creators are Jick and Mr. Skullhead and they do a regular streaming radio show. also you can get special items for listening to the radio channel sometimes. They are constantly and always adding to and refining the game.

Oh and about giving them money, you get can get, amongst other things, limited items of the month, which are usually awesome. Actually, et me correct that, you get a MR. Accessory which can be traded for the item of the month and other stuff. Check it here: http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Mr._Store. The humor ranges from crude toilet humor to high falootin references from everything from Star Trek to Tolkien to Potter to John Hodgman to just about everything in pop culture over the last 100 years or more.

You get a limited number of adventures per day, but no tall actions cost adventures, but you can get more adventures via food, booze, and misc. items. these play heavily into the classes. DOn't worry about settling into a class, they all are good and bad and if you like the game you will want to ascend multiple times to make cross class skills permanent.

The big thing is, if you play for free, like completely free and dont log in for like 60 days, they delete your toon. but if you use the donate button once, they store your toon forever. I can still log into mine...he's got some old stuff on him.

Well that's all not so bad. If I don't play something for 60 days I'm pretty sure I've lost interest.

If you were still making money from the Diablo 3 Auction House, enjoy it while it lasts. The whole thing is being removed from the game by Spring 2014.

Blizzard has been pretty open about it being a colossal mistake, so I can't say I'm surprised (or the slightest bit sad).
