Under rating threshold (show) It is a bit frustrating that you can't set a queue of items to be produced. Every 20 minutes I have to log back in just to tell it to make another stone. Bah, boring...

Under rating threshold (show) Why does everything need to be micromanaged? You'd think you'd be able to tell someone who worked for you, "Keep making X until I tell you otherwise." No, I don't expect a broadsword to be made in a few seconds, but I expect my people to keep busy.

I've sent this in to the design team for their consideration. Would you consider a small gold price reasonable for this type of action? Thanks. :)

Hi Locu, if you need customer support, please let us know directly via http://support.disruptorbeam.com thank you. I'm on a laptop right now and my screen is well within the site's limits. Can you adjust your resolution to make things look better for yourself?

Under rating threshold (show) First off, I dont think its good that this is the same server as the Facebook one. All the top players are well over 100k power. Would be better to have a fresh start for Kong players. Second, it still has the same bugs and issues, since its a direct port of the Facebook game. Get those fixed and you might have a shot on here.

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Thank you for this feedback, Aslan. We have been working hard to bring the game to as many players on as many platforms as possible, and while we would have liked to have a 'fresh' Kong server, the game is such that it would not be feasible at this time. We hope that you'll continue to play and rise in power in Westeros; show those Facebook players who's in true command of the game. ;)

Under rating threshold (show) The "wait forever and pay to go faster" mechanic is a money-sucking snoozefest. Neat game, but hardly worth the time/money it requires.

Under rating threshold (show) All the top rated comments are increbily negetive, yet this game's rating adverage is 3.9 which leads to believe that either some people like it and aren't vocal, that something fishy is going on, or that People who really dislike it are only rating it 3 or so.

+ - !

(39)

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

We have thousands of Kong players who have been with us for months helping us improve the game over time with their awesome feedback and constructive bug reports. The new influx of Kong players seem to all want 'badges' and become impatient when those aren't quickly or easily obtained. Patience is a virtue in a game like Ascent. Winter is coming...

Under rating threshold (show) Is there a version of this game without all the waiting? Its an interesting concept with a good story and solid RPG/GoT elements but the whole "pay money or wait for hours on end" kills the whole thing and is a big eff you to the player.

+ - !

(547)

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Hi there, thank you for the question. We've tried to make the game as realistic as possible, and that includes waiting for things to happen or be created. You wouldn't expect a fine Broadsword to be produced in seconds. These things take time. :)

Under rating threshold (show) The game is buggy, but can be fun if you don't mind the time penalties. I'm a fan of the series, but not DisruptorBeam partnership with Zynga. Needless to say, I will not be investing any real money in this game.

+ - !

(422)

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Hi ProbablePanic - our partnership with Zynga is for distribution on Facebook and Zynga.com only. It has no influence on the game or the players on Kongregate or at http://gota.disruptorbeam.com. I am glad that you think the game is fun! Please keep up the great feedback which helps us make the game great.

There are many things you can do while you wait for production and upgrades. Send out your Sworn Swords to level them up and open up more talents, for example. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Man this game has some much potential but just the fact that it shares a server with Facebook and the multiple bugs I have encountered has ruined my experience of enjoying this game. Tip for any players who get stuck on a frozen combat screen: click your silver to have the pop up to buy more then click a separate quest on the left side to exit out.

+ - !

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Hi Deadeye, thanks for the feedback and the tip for players getting stuck on a combat screen. Since you wrote this, we've pushed 1 - 3 builds per week and fixed dozens of bugs and updated many features. I hope that you'll try the game again and let us know your thoughts about the changes and improvements. Thank you!

Under rating threshold (show) I've never had a game on kong spam me until now. If you don't want the messages here's what to do. In your mailbox, press the delete link, and click the ‘block all messages from GoTA’ then check box on the pop up then press the blue delete button to confirm the action." Advice is from donseptico and works. you only have to do it once and the rest of the messages dissapear.

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Hi there, I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm a happy person and tend to sound very positive and encouraging... I'm truly like this in real life. If you met me in person I'd probably hug you. Ask the PAX East-goers. Not patronizing at all, genuinely thankful for the feedback, happy to be working for a great game and an even better community. :)

Under rating threshold (show) It's nice to see the developer responding to comments. Unfortunately none of the responses address any of the issues at all. The wait times are way too long. After playing for a couple days the wait times for quests are already up to a couple hours. Don't you know you have to hook new players before you up the waiting times if you want people to play through the bs? Instead you are just going to drive people away. I am one of those people.

Under rating threshold (show) I like the idea of the game, but its execution by DisruptorBeam has been terrible. Frequent, long downtime and bugs around every corner. I thought the Kong release might be better than the FB one, but no, this is very much a Beta release that expects you to pay money for an unfinished game.

Under rating threshold (show) I wonder if larger production queues earlier in the game would help new players retain interest. It can be kinda boring producing iron and wood, then a sword. Maybe speeding some of the lower level production can help give newer players (like myself) a higher sense of accomplishment and competitiveness by making cooler weapons or companions more accessible

Under rating threshold (show) A good edition to this game would to be a menu que that allowed the production of other items automatically after the completion of the current working item that way I could check back in a couple of days or hours instead of every half hour.

Under rating threshold (show) Leave it to Game of Thrones to take one of the worst concepts for a video game and make one of the worst versions of such yet. This game is a great big festering turd that can't give you even five minutes of play before the developers start prodding you for cash. As soon as you get the badge, tell all of Westeros to go eff itself.

+ - !

(152)

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

It's unfortunate that you feel this way. We have many thousands of Kongregate players who are here for more than a badge, and have given us invaluable feedback and reports which have gone into the game's improvement over time, and will continue to do so. I hope you determine you can be part of that community, but if not, we're glad you tried it and took the time to give us feedback, Terastas.

Under rating threshold (show) i like the game but it need 1 MAJOR thing: - make a quene with upgrades purchaseable with stag's so you don't have to log in every 20 min. you'll keep a LOT more players. I don't run screaming away from stuff taking time but forcing logging in every 20 min (or pay-to-win) makes the game a bit painfull at times.

Developer response from DisruptorBeam

Hi Bogden, it's something we looked into but in order to get the game onto Kongregate and supported properly it was done this way. We hope you're still enjoying the game and have a happy day in Westeros! :)

Under rating threshold (show) This is the first game of this type that I have played. Thoughts: 1 - a queuing production option would be useful as I could leave them to run overnight. 2 - the wait periods are frustrating but understandable as the game needs to generate income somehow. One could argue that such wait times add an element of realism to the game and help you to establish priorities (upgrade banking first to boost income), etc. 3 - the way the game runs parallel to the novels is nicely done and the artwork is excellent.

Under rating threshold (show) "We've tried to make the game as realistic as possible..." Sorry for ruining your argument, but i just used the same Sworn Sword to do a mission on Quath and Now he´s in King´s Landing, that´s quite the voyage, don´t you think? im not saying there shoudn´t be anyw aiting, but just don´t use the "realism" argument to justify an commercial feature like waiting, not when you can speed up the whole thing by up to 1 day and 4 hours to finish the quest, no, this is not about realism, it is about paying to play faster. Yes, i understand that you need the money to continue to do nice games like this one, yeah, it is a nice game and i have been playing for weeks now, but just be honest about the reasons you make us wait, if you really wanna give us a realistic gameplay, take out all the paid features and just give us an stand-alone game.

Under rating threshold (show) Weet234 exchanging silver to gold is needed (as I think) it can't be that low or people who (like me) are making 4000+ silver a full bank would fill up on gold like non-other, so a higher price like 5000+ silver would be far better.
