I have noticed that not too many people play key quest, and those who do are frustrated because so many people quit. List your ideas of how you would make the game better, and reasons that if you don't play, what would make you want to play:D

Personally it's a hassle on my computer.
I love playing KQ but I can only do 1 game a day pretty much.

If I was ever able to get hold of computer that would be fantastic playing KQ, I would all the time!

I always play Key Quest. (It's my favorite game) So sometimes I earn to many keys, in end up having to save them for the next day. I don't know, though. I don't really have a problem finding people to play with. I just join games. My advice for you is to go to the 5 key room. There is always listings there. OR if you see my online, so message me! haha.

It takes too long... I only play 5-key games (2 players) because gold and silver keys are the only ones that are worth playing for, but playing 10 games of 5-key games a day takes up to 2 hours or more, depending on your success rate with quitters.

I just don't have that kind of time.

When I was on neo, I played quite a bit of KQ each day, because I had the time to and I was usually lucky because I hardly encountered any quitters.

But recently, my life got 10x busier with all the homework, revision and co-curricular activities we have to stay for... (my normal school day starts at 7am and ends at 5pm)

Streaming an MMO at 8mbps is so much more than that...

For me, the first reason was it ate up a lot of CPU time (even more so than the MMO previously implied) and because it was Flash 9 never touched my video accelerator(s). On top of that, the original Key Quest was skill based and often synced to the faster computer. A few months down the road it became extremely luck based and also began to sync it to the slowest computer. Which meant that I was hit with up to 30 second penalties in terms of mini games which was frustrating.

I love Key Quest (I even have a Nova token), but I tend to lose minigames since they make my computer lag, so I only do it once in a while. I get a huge sense of victory when my strategies (read: evil plans to make them lose) succeed.

I love KQ! I have lots of tokens that are now retired(The KQ plushies), and I am good at KQ, but I HATE quitters, and for that BIG reason, I do not play KQ more then once or twice a month.

I get slow computers but I never really had a problem with quitters like you all? Like I have had people quit on me, but usually pretty quick into the game. Never like when I'm about to win, so they quit. I've been getting better at the mini-games, but I'm still not that good. I also don't mind loosing, since you get good prizes on 2nd place.

I'm also the type of person that if I think the persons computer is lagging. (Like I said, I stick at the mini-games, so if I win all of them, that's a good hint) that I will avoid mini games on purpose and let them win. Cause I know how bad it stinks to try to play games with a slow computer.

I play KQ once in a while, but I lurked on the KQ boards and people hold grudges against quitters. My computer is so weird, because even though it's fairly new, one day I could go through 5 games fast and without problems, the next day, it just conks out on me, even if I'm only on the main page. I don't want people to be angry at me, and even then, there haven't been many people to play with. I just rather avoid any unnecessary problems.

Key quest wouldn't low on the computer that I am using. :x

And even if it does load, I wouldn't like to play it because of all the waiting time, and also because I prefer playing games that I can terminate whenever I want to (I get a lot of interruptions).

as am I am in charge o the KQ section here, I have to play it every day. But its hard to get games finished due to people either delibritely quitting or their pc just kicking them out. I average about 2 full games a day ,unless i'm playing someone i know but average about 10 or so wasted games.
