I love polls about things I love.

I love posting my answers about said polls as well, if possible

Favorite Core - King's Man, even if you have strong survivors, this will always be a fun fight.

Favorite Expansion - Dragon King, I just love this monster.

Favorite Campaign - Stars, Skull is a really close second.

Defeated a level 3 - Yes, White Lion.

Defeated a Legendary - No.

Hours invested - 200+

Campaigns started - 10+, most of them didn't go past 5th year due to player commitment

Campaigns defeated final boss - 2

Most excited rumored/confirmed expansions - Ringtailed Fox, followed very closely by Lantern Festival.

Will I sell KDM for 150% of price - NEVER, unless I'm in dire need of money, I'll even sell my car first.

Nerf the Bone Witch - No, she's fun the way she is.

Favorite design-wise - Butcher, he's your first real test. I loved it.

Least favorite design-wise - Lonely Tree, didn't even buy it. MAYBE, one day.

Nemesis, throw-away or try to beat - Try to beat.

Defeated a level 3 Lion God - No, not even level 1 for that matter.

Derp, I messed that up. I even remembered to add it in later polls. Sadly, I don't think you can change existing polls.

Interesting stuff. Think the most revealing ones are ones with an overwhelming emphasis, and ones where an answer has no love at all.

I love this game and then taking polls to see people love this game as much or more than I do. KD really does have a community built around it.

Poor Lonely Tree.

Am I the only one who really likes it? .My favourite thing about it is probably the thing most folks hate about it, the 'chance' to encounter it. In my 3 months of owning it and constantly playing KD, I've only fought it once or twice.

I've owned all the expansions since May and I've only played half, there's more than enough variety for me to choose from; I don't need another quarry to consciously select to hunt. The LT always adds an element of unpredictability to the hunt and showdown phase.

Which is why peaks and troughs are more interesting than the middling bits, like how every core monster but the Watcher has 10%+ of the poll, except the watcher which has none.

I dig it because it's unique, but it definitely isn't my favorite expansion.

KDM = Best. Game. Ever.

Hope that most of us here agree.

Even though people tend to criticise the White Lion, it is my favourite monster because it introduced me to KDM and its epicness (ding dong anyone?). There might be better rounded up creatures to fight out there, but "Whitey" will always be in my heart (or my survivors in his mouth...).

I like the lonely tree, but it's not my fav expansion



and I'll guess the lantern festival is the most anticipated as a lot of us have already paid for it (less a bit of shipping?) plus it gives the chance to break out our successful settlements and legendary survivors again

(why do I get the feeling there won't be a happily ever after for them)

I haven't yet beaten a campaign without all of the available survival actions, but right now, we're coming close and can't seem to get Dash.

We've compensated by loading up on darts, and surging as much as humanly possible.

It is going surprisingly well for us.

Mostly selfish reasons. I was more interested in the expansion and variant campaigns since that's what I will be playing more of and haven't tried them yet. I figured Lantern would win by a landslide, too. But there is an "Other" option there to select for People of the Lantern if you so choose.

Really? I figured people of the Stars would be the big winner.


Although, I suppose there's a problem with popularity contests like this- while everyone voting has played the core game, most of us haven't played some of the expansions.

For example- I've heard fabulous things about fighting the Lion Knight- but I haven't fought him.

Apparently I am the only person who really dislikes everything about the Gorm That's okay though. I just hope Poots comes out with another early game expansion. I'm getting a little tired of lions.

This would be a wonderful thing. We're going to insert the Gorm into our next campaign, which will be our second, and I'm excited to have some early-game variety. I really enjoy the White Lion, but I'm also eager to see different decisions in the early game. More early-game expansion quarries would be high on my list of wants.

I think it's sweet that 87% of people wouldn't take a 50% profit on their KDM stuff.

Hmm, think my favorite statistic is 120/120 people who answered one poll have beaten the game, but 53/103 and 54/102 haven't beaten the game yet.

For all of you that haven't beaten a Legendary Monster—Collect all the Survival Actions then go fight the Beast of Sorrow. Easier fight than a Level 3 Lion IMO, and gives great loot/rewards.

I do't count the Beast as a legendary monster, because he IS easier than a level 3 Lion. Likewise, I don't count the Dragon King or the Ancient Sunstalker as legendaries, even though they could be considered on that level, because they are not optional fights in their respective campaigns.
