Yeah, but it doesnt give you x10 or x100 more

It does. What it buys you is another 10 or 100 shares in the relevant business. You may be expecting to see x10 or x100 profit, but the game doesn’t work that way. It’s not linear.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / When to reset: An approximation (Warning: Complicated math involved!)

Originally posted by keneticmotion:

Anyway, as I was saying, I generally reset as soon as I have enough angels for the next angel upgrade. Keep a close eye on the number of angels you can gain per reset.

Yes, you did say that, but you also said that you’ve only just started playing and you’ve only reset once. So what “generally” means in that context is a bit of a mystery. Sorry to butt in like this but it really isn’t very clear. :-)

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: Developer / ** Suggestions **

I’d find it helpful to have a Buy x25 x50 x75 feature. It needn’t necessarily be part of Buy x1 x10 x100 Max. It could sit next to it, or it could be an upgrade. I’d happily sacrifice an angel for it, unlike the “EZ Upgrader”, for which I can’t see any useful purpose.

You still left in the unskippable unclosable tutorial popups that require you to re-close or re-open the game multiple times. Still heinously broken. Profits are lower than they’ve ever been, as is confidence in you as developers. Disgusting and inexcusable.

I don’t know what’s funnier, the game’s pretence to be a simulation of capitalism or your spluttering rage that the dev is clearly not focussed on servicing the needs of free players. Don’t take this comment personally – you’re one of many.

I second this request.

Speaking of things being covered, the character who pops up after every reset to tell you to “keep on biggering” covers up most of the righthand side of the game. It’s unhelpful. Please get rid of him or at least make him dismissable.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist: General / Still no offline earnings, export code doesnt work too

Same here. I’ve had no offline earnings since yesterday. Before the update, if you loaded Kong in another tab before loading AC, there was no issue. Unfortunately that workaround is now broken.

HyperHippo would do very well to solve this game-breaker rather than working on minor interface tweaks.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / Promoting Alliance Members to Officers

Yes it’s a nuisance that you can’t see all members by browsing the membership list. Yet another longstanding bug which I doubt will ever be fixed. However if you know their names then there’s a solution. You can type in members’ names to search for them, and then promote them.

(I’m assuming that nothing’s changed since the last time I did that. The server seems to be down today.)

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / 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: General (Westeros Discussion) / 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.

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: General (Westeros Discussion) / 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.

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: General (Westeros Discussion) / 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: General (Westeros Discussion) / GET RID of Alliance Chat and Donations

Originally posted by Ruben42:
…What I don’t like is that the rookery doesn’t have the same tweak option. Donation messages just flood the rookery making calling banners pretty much unusable.

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.
