KGE (Or Kinda Good Encryption) is an experimental encryption system designed to help with encrypting against Quantum Computer and Computer Farms. To understand how this all works, let's say you're sending a message to your friends Dave and John.

You, Dave and John are absolutely cracked at Apex Legends but they continuously get 1k less damage to you so you decide to tell them to switch to a new legend before a tournament begins.

If you use a Cipher such as AES, the data is properly obfuscated using a Password and IV and is sent to Dave and John, who can use a password and IV to decipher the message you sent, which explains that a Revenant, Pathfinder and Ash team (or The Metal Men) is superior due to Dave's ability to take good sniper shots but needing to change position every minute or so to reach higher ground and John's ability to hunt then push teams really hard for short periods of time.

However, your nemesis Matthew wants to find out your secret plan so that he may sabotage you in a long Twitter rant saying that those three legends are broken and should be banned on competitions. He somehow intercepts the message you sent and gets the ciphertext as well as the IV (which is usually not bothered with being too protected). He plugs it into his quantum computer and starts churning numbers, needing the password to decrypt the message.

Does the quantum computer send a qubit to the server, representing every possible password?

No, the internet can't send qubits (yet) and even then, developers should be smarter than to allow qubits for a login system.

Does the quantum computer compile a huge list of possible passwords and allow you to press a collapse to correct option?

Not that simple my friend.

Instead, what the password does is allow for more answers to be tested at a faster pace. It uses algorithms such as Shor's or Grover's Equation to basically increase the possibility of an answer at either an exponential or quadratic rise. if a standard computer took 10 milliseconds to try a password and there were 16 characters with One Trillion Possibilities, it would take at least 3,168,876 years to try every possible password, which is longer than Matthew's lifespan. However, a Quantum Computer allows this to be done in much less time, taking what may be a few days compared to the alternative. This gives Matthew the power to try every single possible password in just a matter of days.

What KGE attempts to do is increase in the number of possible answers and combinations to the point that attempting to use any sort of decryption system seems pointless.

In extremely bare terms (which are expanded on the Encryption Steps Post), an IV and IV II is randomly generated, while two passwords are made from the user. The result is turned into a group of points, with details from the IV being used to create several points and ranges on a 3D graph. These points then are added into a third IV, which requires the first and second IV and the first and second password to use. This is used to tell the decryption process which points to look at and in which order. What makes this better is the fact that this does snot use conventional math. As an example, while 1+1 may be 2, the system may decide that 1+1=@, which is better explained within the next log.

This adds in many more variables not present before and even if you were to use a Quantum Computer to attempt to find the password, there are many more things that you must account for now such as how the basic math system works and what points on the graph is real/fake. Also due to the high placement of numbers and special characters there are many more combinations compared to a regular system.

Now, when Matthew decides to attempt a decryption using the Quantum Computer, not only does he have to go through what is a much higher number of possible combinations, he also has to get all possible math modules following the basic laws of mathematics and go through each one with each possibility to see if it matches. Finally, he has to determine which points of combinations are real and fake to get the value of Round 20. This makes Encryption borderline impossible for standard computers to decipher in our lifetime and (hopefully) very hard for quantum computers to decrypt.
