Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / How do I opt out from this game spamming my profile with private messages about friend requests?

Thanks Shan. You do a great job. I realise you’re not personally responsible.

Regarding this problem, I have un-favourited the game and reduced my rating to 2/5. I’m hoping the game only spams players who show some enthusiasm.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / How do I opt out from this game spamming my profile with private messages about friend requests?

I had the game blocked for months. A couple of days ago it started again. This coincides with the creation of a new mail tab specifically for game messages. I reported this as a bug about 24 hours ago. No reply and no change.

Kongregate and Disruptor Beam: This isn’t a joke. STOP SPAMMING PLAYERS OR WE’LL GO ELSEWHERE.

So true. Woe is the man (or woman) trapped in a baconless marriage. :(

O Disruptor Beam! Please allow us to find new happiness when we are neglected and cast aside.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Where to post alliance advertisements?

Right here will be fine. Go for it.

You can definitely tackle challenges with 23 people though. Don’t take the guidelines too seriously.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Children betrothal

The same goes for marriages. Pacts are dodgy. This has been acknowledged for six months or more.

If noone works on this problem, it stays in “known bugs” status forever. Can this be fixed please?

Sorry about caps. Was just not looking forward to a wasted weekend with my hard-working alliance members stuck with nuffink to do. I should not have doubted you. Cheers.

Hi Shan, you mentioned here and on DB there’s a Chrome workaround for the invisible unlocked challenges. PLEASE TELL US WHAT IT IS. Thank you.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Friends' boss quests in one place

If anyone agrees or disagrees you should post an opinion. DB aren’t going to do anything just because one player requests it. Come on guys say something.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Friends' boss quests in one place

I don’t know if this has been suggested before but it would be much better if all friends’ boss quests appeared in a single separate tab of their own. It is tiresome having to click back and forth through all the volumes trying to find them, and it is only too easy to forget about some of them. Having a properly titled tab would also remove the problem for players who’ve never ventured past Vol I of accepting quests from friends then wondering why they don’t appear. Also since the vertical space is so small it’s normal to have some quests hidden out of sight and anything which could be done to reduce this would be welcome. Please give it some thought DB.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / GET RID of Alliance Chat and Donations

I have to agree. As an alliance leader I find it very useful to have members’ donations notified automatically, but I definitely don’t like seeing them interspersed with chat in the Rookery. As you say, it’s a flood, and it’s disruptive to conversation.

I’m fine with the new chat interface outside the Alliance screen, but the Rookery is still important. I suggest a better solution would be to add a fifth tab to the Alliance screen (i.e. Rookery, Members, Invitations, Challenges, Activity) and stream all the automatic posts there. People who are disinterested would never have to see them, alliance leaders would find it easier to read them, and everyone would appreciate a return to normal chat.

If this idea was adopted I also suggest that information like “Player A started Challenge X”, “Player B joined Challenge X”, “Challenge X has ended” and “Alliance Z is now ranked #n” would be other useful notifications.

Erm, is it me, or did someone take a “I’m not gonna fink today” pill? Why wasn’t the Alliance chat window squeezed between ‘Game’ and ‘Chat Options’? As in a, 3rd Chat area. There’s enough room for another tab, it would just mean the Rookery would be in the Chat window instead of the Alliance window.

You are deeply confused. Alliance chat is part of the game, which runs on a server owned by Disruptor Beam. The game programmers have no ability to add an extra tab to Kong chat, and even if they did, the vast majority of players who are on Facebook wouldn’t be able to see it.

I think the new chat interface is nifty. I like having the options to display or hide it, minimise or maximise it, and deselect activity notifications. I am going to use it.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Which family and why?

Originally posted by sarnag123:

To get a fully functioning DRAGON pet, as all players should do, you need to unlock lannister, Baratheon, Stark, and Greyjoy in that order, and get all their special items combined, to get a dragon horn. Then use it in the reliquary, combined with a quickened dragon egg and some other stuff.

The order in which you unlock the fealty houses doesn’t matter. They all have to be unlocked before you can try to hatch a dragon’s egg. But there is an order in which you need to produce the items, i.e. you need to make 2 Aurochs before you can make a Great Horn, etc.

Only six people have reported quickening a dragon’s egg as yet, and nobody claims to have hatched one. Apparently the odds are 1:100 on quickening and 1:300 on hatching. Unless that changes, only a few players will ever own a dragon.

Nine hours later it’s back again. Nothing’s changed at my end. I doubt the problem is with us users, but if there’s something we can do differently please let us know.

Topic: Technical Support / You are not yet connected to Kongregate's chat

I am having the same problem. It started sometime in the last 12-15 hours. It is persistent and cross-browser. I have ruled out all the usual issues (latest Flash version, port 5222 open, no AdBlock, etc).

It’s not a problem of connection then disconnection. I am not connecting in the first place.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / [Alliance] Iron Fleet

Some other alliances enforce limits on how often their members may hit a challenge. We don’t. If you’re willing to put in the time, we don’t prevent you enjoying the rewards.

Having said that, we make an effort to help each other out. We consult each other on when challenges should run. By enforcing a 24 hour notice period, we give everyone a fair chance to participate. Members who are planning to reincarnate will voluntarily let others take the top prizes.

If you’re looking for an alliance that offers both freedom and fairness, join us.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Stop sending me private messages

I completely agree. It’s spam. Game messages like these do nothing but generate ill will towards the game.

I actually learned how to block spam on Kongregate due to GoTA.
