I suppose I could mention my disdain at Kongregate selecting one particular game, repeatedly, for an "easy" badge of the day that I have never earned.
That badge being for the game indestructible tank.
I've earned the bloody medium badge.
And don't have the easy badge.
Because the bloody easy badge is nigh-impossible, highly luck based, and it is incredibly frustrating to, repeatedly, time and time again, play the game, do it for a long long time...only to end up, not actually earning it in all of my tries.
This is not the only game to have that problem.
I can think of similar games that give me issues, like Sydney Shark.
Games where Kongregate, every single year, makes them badges of the day...
...But which I can never earn them because their rating is a lie, their rating should be hard or even impossible and yet for whatever godforsaken reason they are listed as easy or medium.
I have most badges for most games.
I only have one impossible badge--there's multiple which I could realistically achieve if I put in the time and effort for them (I could speedrun MARDEK for the two there but I haven't gotten them because I want to achieve my personal definition of 100% completion on MARDEK; I could grind Hipolyta to eventually get one there; I might might might be able to get the Pandemic2 one; etc.), but it's safe to say that their ratings as very difficult to obtain are earned.
I have a ton of hard badges, and plenty more which I could easily obtain if not for a combination of laziness, time restrictions, and apathy where I'll play, work towards it, and eventually lose interest even if I was 95% of the way towards earning it.
I have medium badges for just about every single game that I have an interest in playing, and similarly so for easy badges. If the game is something I want to play, chances are, I have already played it and earned the badges for it, or if I haven't earned the badges, it's because I played it before it had badges and didn't replay it once the badges were added.
So if a game has a badge which I haven't earned.
There's two possibilities.
The first, it is a game that slipped through the cracks--I didn't play it because either I didn't know about it or I thought I played it but somehow didn't or I wanted to get around to playing it and put it on my playlist but didn't actually play. The like.
The second, there is a darn good reason it is a badge I haven't earned--idle games, p2w games, games that are utterly unappealing to me, and games that are just...like. What's the name of that sidescrolling running game which there's like five of in total? Don't have most of the achievements there because that's another example of a game where there's a lot of luck involved, where you do long runs or sometimes not so long runs due to failing early, often, repeatedly, and you just have to grind and grind and grind and HOPE that this run you just so happen to do the exact combo necessary to get through.
There are games which fit that description which I don't mind--usually, games where. Yaknow. You have upgrades? Where what you do between runs, affects the chances of you earning the achievement ON a run. Those games are fine, I play those games, enjoy them, and can come back to them time and time again.
But when every single run gives you the same start.
Except the course is randomized so you can't even memorize it.
And they require exact timing.
That's not fun.
That's not easy.
That's not medium.
That's luck, that's hard, that's not really skill, that's just tedious gameplay and the indestructible tank game which is the Monday badge of the day is such an example of a game of that type that I loathe and utterly hate whenever Kongregate makes it a badge of the day because I can't earn the badge of the day for that day because it. is. not. something. I. can. do. If I could I've have done it already because I am a Kongregate addict who plays most of the games on there.
