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) I've been playing this for a while and there's one thing that drives me nuts. The boons. You always have to scroll through pages of them. Why not have filters that allow you to choose what type of boon (Battle, Trade, Intrigue) and the rarity of the boon?

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. :)

Under rating threshold (show) Why this game sucks my top reasons are below. 1. Micromanagement to the extreme, come on really...do I have to tell people to breed, eat, and do work? 2. Extremely big pay wall, more then half the items I can see in the game are behind pay walls, including sworn swords. 3. Having to wait on everything, come on now...least get a mini game or two to pass the time, like I don't know army commanding, peasant smacking, whatever you care to do, hell even throw the beer bottle at the peasant would work for some comic relief. 4.No trading market between players, if you're going to make a kingdom game and make us have to "harvest" resources, least let us trade to others, you know like they did in the show and real life. 5. Really...do I really have to tell someone in a market place to "go make small folk" I think they can handle that task in their bedrooms quite well without me telling them to do so.

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.

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) 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) "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) 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.

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) 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.

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 main problem of the game is you have nothing to do but wait after a few clicks. Even gathering some basic simple materials takes you 20 minutes. But you need the basic materials to do some other actions. That means you have nothing to do in that 20 minutes (don't mention the 5 min reduction, who the hell would wait 15 minutes in the game until the speed up button activate?). Even more worse, if you need 4 basic materials to craft a thing, this mean you need to wait for at least 20 * 4 = 1 hr 20 mins before crafting the thing, and after gathering the materials, crafting the thing itself could need you wait for minutes or even hours. And this is what happen when you just start the game! Wow, I can't imagine how the game pace will become when the game progress... I think people like this game becoz it is with the title of "game of thrones", but I doubt people actually like the game itself.

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.

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) Couple of more suggestions: #1: Let us organize our inventory, sworn swords etc. Even if it's only something similar to the "sort by" feature in the recruitment phase and not a full-blown click-and-drag system, that would still be better than nothing. #2: Let us rename our sworn swords. Yes, we'll start seeing henchman with stupid and/or obscene names, but so what? We're already seeing other players with those.

Under rating threshold (show) Pros - game looks beautiful, artwork is great and music is very atmospheric. building up your holdings and completing the quest lines can be fun if you are prepared to spend some real money on speed up gear. Cons - BUGS, some as old as the game. UI is not well designed, too much clicking to perform simple actions. There is no way to manage your army or inventory except click click click through pages and pages. Most bulk tasks have to be done one click at a time - train 10 points on your sworn sword - 10 clicks; buy 100 leather armours - 100 clicks (or 200 if you clear the confirmation). The game play can get a bit boring and samey. Difficulty is implemented with a very unimaginative and frustrating chance system. The new expansion introduced a complete pay-to-win element to the game. Sort of feels like the game is on its last legs and the devs are frantically milking it for all they can.

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.

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) it would be awesome if we have images of the places, I mean when I click the Sept icon we go inside the sept and we can see the altars and the upgrades we have, if we only have 1 the altar would be really basic, and with each upgrade it becomes more and more awesome, something like this in every building! this would make the game a lot more enjoyable, please like it so the devs can see this!
