Re: Does anyone that plays TH not play KoL?

Post by blackmatter615 »

I found KoL first and found TH while searching for something like KoL. I dont play KoL anymore because I dislike how it is set up, especially the NS tower. I dislike how it is near impossible to do without a wiki available. TH i did not discover the wiki (mostly from lack of entering chat) until after I had finished all the quests. They were difficult enough that it puzzled me (say grand in particular) but simple enough that I could easily perform the tasks on my own. I also prefer the sense of humor Ryme has to that of Jick and crew's.

I only farm in kol now. For the last 3 or 4 years, really. And with Mr A prices going through the roof, I'll probably stop even doing that.

play KoL when things are quiet in TH. Otherwise I mostly farm. Just the other day I made the mistake of starting a softcore run... three days of playing 3 hours+ a day reminded me why I'm not in this business anymore.

Played TH before I found KoL.
Found both via a search for browser-based games.
Comparing KoL to TH is like comparing a child's finger-painting to the Mona Lisa.
(To explain: KoL = finger-painting; TH = Mona Lisa)
And no, I stopped playing KoL...

My softcore multi hasn't really been played since Christmas, despite plenty of time and money being pumped into her.

I still play my HCO multi, but largely because that doesn't take much time.

I alternate between playing and not playing KoL. Currently, I play. But I found KoL well before TH.

I've played KoL since December 2006.

Then came one magical day when KoL Coldfront had a front-page article for TH.
I, and thousands of others, rushed to start playing, and ended up facing overloaded database errors. Ah, the good old days.
Sometimes, it seems like I'm the last player who signed up that day and still plays now.

By the way, I'm Tom808 in KoL.

EDIT: Corrected the date above.

I played KoL, and was slowly getting irked as to how complicated it was becoming. I quit shortly after the release of NS13. Luckily, I found out about Twilight Heroes from the Coldfront website... though I wish I'd heard about it during the alpha testing so I could have that damn badge. LOL

I ended up giving my awesome KoL account to a random n0ob in the n0ob channel. Had tons of trophies, side-kicks, etc.

That is a great idea, CS. I should give my two alts away in the newbie channel. Nothing really great on them, but tons of items and chips.

I still play KoL, although I'm finding it difficult to keep up with my two characters there. Too much to do, and not enough time to do it in.

Oddly enough, the full name wasn't mentioned at all in this thread. KoL = Kingdom of Loathing >.>
