Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Upcoming Stats Changes - Please Read

The ‘anything worthwhile costing money’ is an all-together other significant issue; but that an item only from the Greyjoy specific shipyard (dragon horn) is required to make the possible (small chance) dragon in the Targaryen specific Reliquary is what absolutely boggles me.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Upcoming Stats Changes - Please Read

With this ability to respec, are the talent, building and unit restrictions for fealty changing as well? Because the last straw on this game for me was Targaryen inability to acquire possible dragons without gold payment while Greyjoys can due to the shipyard requirement. I’ll play regularly again if that changes despite the games many other failings. And I must say that seeing so many television ads for the game recently and so few fixes is pretty sad. This game could be both epic and long-lived. Please put more of your funding percentages into bug fixes and playability and less into advertisement.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Wow...just wow.

So among many other issues with the game, I’ve discovered that Targaryen fealty does not lead to the possibility of dragons but rather Greyjoys does. That’s the straw for me. I may check back in a few months to see if anything has improved but I’m not going to hold my breath.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / So many bugs :(

My gold expenditure actually showed up in the wee hours this morning, much to my surprise and delight. On the other hand, the game isn’t loading at all this evening :/ Seems highly improbable the team for this would be a small one, especially for the series current popularity and backing. I’d gladly join them to help make the game experience better for all in a professional manner instead of being just another griping player. Meanwhile, I will continue to play-my irritations aside, and hope the teams success in fixing the many issues and being generally successful in the long run.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / So many bugs :(

Ughn! Just ate my gold and got squat for it (of course only had a whopping 6 of them through gameplay at level 42). This game could be and SHOULD be much better than it is. At least some of the artistry is nice and the quest dialogues aren’t entirely worthless. Lets discuss some bugs. There’s the ever popular non-closing boss fights and wrong request sent bugs. Often item rewards aren’t given for story and side quests; negative time counters; frozen pages, constant crashes and incredibly long load screen times for such a should-be simplistic program; interaction with other players is extremely sub-par and even viewing your allies is a hassle (often resulting in freezing, blank screens or crashing); rewards from adventure quests are about worthless and the experience they gain seems to amount to a drop in a bucket after a fairly short time, but the first few levels go pretty quick at least- might be nice if they’d add exp bars for them so we at least have a clue, sometimes the little things make a big difference…anyway; Battling (attacking or defening) other players is fruitless as nothing at all is gained and your champion can be gone for hours or days; alliance challenges giving no rewards and resetting themselves; And I don’t know if it’s a glitch or an oversight or just bad math and/or randomizers but the numbers for champions stats and mission struggles seem to make little to no difference at all. I swear if it wasn’t GoT based I wouldn’t play this at all! So other glitches/bugs people want to share or gripe about since it seems the creators have no intention of fixing anything?

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Nothing new

Another unfortunate let down. Some decent concepts included for a game of its type and based on the incredible book series turned hit television show; this is ultimately just another lame ‘myspace’ game which requires sitting around waiting for upgrades and spending large amounts of gold (i.e. real money purchases) to acquire anything real goodies and have hopes of a decent game in the long run. Gets 2/5 only due to the namesake and a few features I haven’t seen on similar styled game, though would be a 4 if not for nearly everything requiring gold.

Topic: Epic War Saga / A sad day

I love the Epic War series, EW3 is the game that started my addiction to flashgames. 3,4 and 5 were absolutely spectacular aside from heroes being fairly useless after the first few stages (the first two installments were just plain bad sadly but the company was in its early stages if developing the series). This installment though, about makes me want to cry. They took their excellent concept and gameplay and threw it away to follow the trendiness so many others are following, majorly limiting what players are able to do without paying cash, waiting around for recharges in energy, action points etc… and severley decreasing the enjoyment of the game in hopes they can make a little more profit. it’s just plain sad :(

Topic: General Gaming / [Cursed Treasure: Don't Touch My Gems!] level 13 glitch

around wave 33-35 one of the mobs ran the path, took no damage, exitedoff the left of the screen, though the gem nest and ice areas. played through to the last wave, but wont let the level end. tried putting a crypt on the edge of the map where it left, but that didn’t help. So no exp and have to start over again :/

Topic: General Gaming / [Desktop TD Pro] Best game shoots craps

Desktop TD Pro is one of my all-time favorite TDs. Unfortunately the developers have decided to hate on Kongregate members for some reason and the game is now pretty much unplayable here. They’ve put a link banner on the bottom of the play screen so you can’t send any waves, half the tower selection bar is now off screen and multiplayer isn’t available at all anymore. Game went from a 5 to a 1. Very sad :(

Topic: Elements / On the God Killer deck...

I cant seem to locate the bug/glitch thread anymore so Im putting this here: Same game vs. Chaos Lord FG as last post-it played Dissipation Field and Isnt losing even a single quantum from attacks; lat turn played a 14/15 Fate egg with growth ability for one earth and 3 Ice dragons-one at 12/6 and deja vu ability for one water, one at 12/7 with steal ability for one water and one at 12/8 with freeze ability for 1 water….how can I get those???

Topic: Elements / Flying Spagetti Master

Team Chaos and Chaos_Auron, Id say you’re both very lucky.
Yes Ive been to the elements forum many times and they’re about as useless as contacting the developers, but some nice posts for deck types.
I have tried shrieker rush and monodark as well (there is not a decent-deck type I have not tried in the past four months of playing this game, that can be found in the forums-here on kong or elements forums).
Lastly this is not a ‘thinking’ game in any way shape or form, so how is it even possible to ‘overthink’ a deck…thats just boggling.
Anyway thanks for the input, Ive gone back to monoaether again and after about a day straight of spamming the AI3 im almost half way to being able to afford my first upgraded card, just going to stick with it to get it out of the way and once I am able to actually beat a FG I’ll be done with elements for good.
As stated in one of my earliest posts for this game, Its a great concept for an online, multiplayer CCG, with great art but it just has too many problems. (In case you haven’t checked my other posts about it-of which there are several- Ill reinterate that at one point half of my cards-owned, not just ingame-vanished overnight and didn’t even get so much as an ‘oops’ or ‘sorry about that’ in responce from the developers).

Topic: Elements / Flying Spagetti Master

Really should be upgraded to impossible badge.
I have been playing elements since it came out on Kongregate and only a phenomenal amount of luck and wasted time seems to garner the badge~I still don’t even have it.
The game is rife with glitches and bugs and continues to gain new content, only adding to the already prominent problems (which the developers seem to refuse to even address) and making the ‘Hard’ badge even more difficult to attain.
The randomizer is also in serious need of being better.
For instance: Every time I swap to another deck type (at this point I have tried every ‘this works for farming’ deck and 2 out of 3 games I’ll still lose to a level 3 AI~best results have been with mono aether and wind+life Firefly Queen+Emp. Bonds decks, but still not good enough as comp tends to use the bane of whatever deck I am using-poison or ice-ice only because the freeze shield ALWAYS freezes my attacking creatures- when using aether and gravity-otyugh when using Wind/Life);
I have used from 1/3 to 3/4 pillar content and still frequently get not nearly enough, in mono decks or when using rainbow get only quantum that I can’t use to play the cards I have in hand.
And why do the level 2 and 3 always have such rare cards especially when I cant even get them after months of playing? at this point I have only gained 2 weapons and 2 nymphs in months of playing off spins, the few other cards I have won from spins have been commons that can be baught in the bazaar.

The advent of the Oracle has made it slightly easier to get money in the game for new cards but since it almost never gives you the card that it flips it ends up being just mostly annoying~since the last patch Its flipped 3 pharoahs for me and the only actual card I have attained from it has been freeze.

Look at it this way-when winning against a level 3 (one out of three games) tends to garner $12-16 and upgrading a single card costs 1,500, thats around 100 won games (excluding losses when $ is lost) to upgrade a single card. and there’s about no way to win against a FG without a fully (or at least mostly) upgraded deck. So if even only 1/2 your cards are upgraded and you’re using a minimum of 30 card deck thats 15 × 1500 = 22,500 $ to use a somewhat suitable deck that likely still wont beat a level 6, and that is just about silly. Even if not for all the glitches and imbalance just the time it takes should constitute the impossible badge.

Topic: Elements / Ideas for Elements CCG (Destructive criticism will be ignored)

Once again developers need to concentrate on fixing already prominent problems in the game (which are legion at this point) instead of just adding more content and raising a few cards casting costs (mostly unneeded, and a few simply silly).

Topic: Elements / NEW CARDS!!

They need to fix the plethora of glitches and bugs before adding more stuff but the developers dont seem interested in fixing things so itll likely one day just die from all the bugs.

Many effects activate aftera creature attacks that shouldnt, like infection, making adrenaline kinda really suck at times, this is another one of many things in dire need of fixing.

Here’s a suggestion dont give badges to crappy muliplayer games that you can spend months playing and have everything you’ve built up destroyed by other jerk player in a single night.
Suggest a solo version so this doesnt happen.
Nice evony rip btw.

Topic: Elements / winning upgraded cards off lvl 5's

be happy, Ive been playign this game since its release have won less than a dozen cards from spins (still not a single upgraded one). Though I’d prefer they take the time to fix problems before adding new content (which I have giving up hoping for at this point) the addition of the Oracle is at least a big help (when it works) for gaining cards and increasing your gold amount.

Topic: Elements / Losing for no reason?

It has happened to me a number of times since the release of the game, usually vs comp but occasionally on PvP (both through Kong and the main site). One of the many prevelant problems with this game (aside from its complete imbalance and terrible randomer) is all its wonderful glitches that will seemingly never get fixed. I once lost half of the cards I owned between loggins (never go so much as a responce from the developers), but for some reason I keep playing. Great premise, concepts, cards and art, could be such a great game if they would just take some time to fix the problems, but I suppose they are like Microsoft in that, they just keep adding more stuff instead of fixing the errors.
