Ion cannon is only to be used during the final boss fight if you're absolutely certain that you'll kill the guy after activating it...and even then, it's a pretty big risk you're taking.
Also, about EBF3, who the hell told you that it's coming out soon?Although just by checking Matt's news post you can see that most of the enemies and/or weapons are done, the actual animations are nowhere to be seen, so....

For some strange reason Lochie or night-Mare is my favorite flash artist right now. He makes epic movies and games. And to be fucking honest I did enjoy Stickya Adventurya.

Whaaaat?His games are poorly made (and it's not on purpose, he just doesn't know how to make a good game), glitchy as hell and generally a mess.
The only good game he ever made is Communist in Space...

Hey, before I make another attempt at it, is the Hydra immune to blinding on Epic difficulty? I cast flare twice and used a Blind unleash twice, and nothing good came of it. By which I mean I didn't get a chance to try a third time.

Remember that you can still get them and even if they aren't worth anything now they will change to the proper point totals when the game is approved. (even on your account) If they aren't accepted in a few days I'll email Tom. He usually emails me back the next day or two about these topics.

Don't know. Never used flair on it. But it probably wouldn't hurt to use it once in awhile, given how much damage it deals out with it's bite and tail damage. Now, on to bragging... Finally got that medal on Epic hard! YAY!!!!! And the people rejoiced!!!;P

Finally? I just got it, and I only died twice, and once was because I used the Ion Cannon on the sand worm like an asshole. The other time was because Flare kept being broken. Oh, and protip: one of the swords (I forget which) has Seal as its Unleash ability. Use that on both hydra heads and they won't be able to use their instant death spell, nor (I assume) will they be able to revive each other (since that's a magic ability).

I'm just kind of pissed off that finishing in Epic didn't get me the medal for Hard too. Now I have to play it again for less points.

I would have finished it off on my first play through if I didn't mess up on the last boss. My next play-through for it didn't go to well when I got hit by two nukes at the same time. On the 3rd play-through both characters were insta-killed, one after the other, by the hydra's insta-kill ability. By that point, I gave up playing it for a month or so. And I don't think the Seal spell seals their insta-death ability...

I'm just kind of pissed off that finishing in Epic didn't get me the medal for Hard too. Now I have to play it again for less points.

I believe that it's the same for the first Epic game.

Oh, and your gonna love getting those Alkie Kong medals to since the same rules applies to them for obtaining each medal for each difficulty level.

No, the spell doesn't. But the Unleash on the sword that does it, does. Here's how I take down the Hydra:

On the wave that comes before it I make sure I have the right sword ready, and after I get it down to a single enemy I try to just defend enough to get Natz to her limit break. I also make sure I have the Slime Bunny recently charged, and I cast all the buffs I can, including Revive on both party members... it takes a while. Then when I'm ready I kill the last dude and move on to the boss.

My first turn is always Tactics->Order, Flare, Unleash to Seal. If all goes well, both heads are blinded and one is sealed. My next turn is Tactics->Order, Attack (full heal+buff), Unleash to Seal the other head. Then it's just a matter of patience and of recasting Flare when needed, and resealing. Once sealed with Unleash I've never seen anything other than a standard attack out of them, though I did once have it try to bite me 12 times in a single attack. Glad I had the Evade skill on that one.

I'm just kind of pissed off that finishing in Epic didn't get me the medal for Hard too. Now I have to play it again for less points.

Heh. You assume that at some point I'm going to sink my time into that one. Given how long it will take and how many points I'll get, I'm thinking no.

I always preferred the rune sword method, with Natz's counter attack ability, which allows you to spam heavy metal without worry of running out of MP - the ability to upgrade it makes it even better.

Heh. You assume that at some point I'm going to sink my time into that one. Given how long it will take and how many points I'll get, I'm thinking no.

Just think of the fun you'll have trying to get them. :3

I got most of them (or all of them, I dunno) and they did indeed register on my page, 0 points each...if what you say is true, I'll be very happy :P

Keep track of your medal point total. When the medals get approved it they will change in your profile and on the game page to looking like they're now worth points, but your total medal score will stay the same. Unless of course they fixed that by now. So no, you can't currently earn them now and get points for them later.

So, is the BOOM! medal from zOMGies fixed, or is it still 10 zombies killed with one barrel for the medal? If so, any advice I could use to get it?

This is what used to happen, but judging by Fro's post this shouldn't be a problem anymore..

You do remember them testing and fixing that with the Tremorz medal right? They changed the value and then changed it again to see if it would show up on the profiles and it did.

By the way, there are 6 medals HeavyTank.

I think I'll wait till the points register first. I'm still down 200 points because Valthrian Arc and The Game Trailer Collab started out with 0 point medals.

It shows up on the profiles correctly, but it doesn't actually factor into your medal point total correctly. That's still broken, even for Tremorz.

My medals are really lacking, so I decided to finish up a few games I never though I would play again. I just finished up Armored Asura. Took 2 plays, but ended up not even getting hit during the second play. The first boss is much harder than the second one.

I'm not sure what to play next.

Yeah yeah I know, but you know what?Sooner or later, they are going to fix it, so...
And I still believe that a "resend medals" button should be mandatory in all games when the medal system is finally out of Beta...

Well, I just beat EBF 1 on hard on my first try to get the Knight medal. Something tells me Epic will not be so quick.

Seriously though, the only thing that was any real challenge on hard was Goku, and that was only because I ran out of max ether potions and Mog gave the ether potion he brought in to the wrong person. I think in Epic I'll have to buff before meeting Goku, so I can move right into attack mode. If I'm fully buffed before getting to him, including magic and attack potions, and can start off with a Seiken and Registeel, that drops his starting health significantly. Another time, though.

Yeah, it's obvious that they are going to fix it eventually if it's not fixed now. Like it says, it's still in a Beta phase. Even though it's open to the public it's still in Beta. Once it's fixed you'll get your points. It's only 40 points anyway.

If they aren't accepted tonight then I'll ask Tom to approve them sooner.

There was also a time when it was obvious that Chat would be finished soon.
