Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / How do I move past chapt.20?

I’m assuming you are talking about volume you (also falsely known as volume 4).
DB adds a half chapter to it every week and atm you are in the last chapter. On tuesday you will be able to play this chapter again.

Topic: Nightbanes / Bug Reports

Maybe the additional badges came from the first 2 days after PvP server merge? Maybe when you lost elo after a win you still got a badge but no recorded win?
I guess the issue back then was that wins were not communicated between the servers correctly and badges probably had nothing to do with this cross server communication, could that be the case?

Topic: Nightbanes / another multi account

Nope, in this elo system here the winner gets equal or higher elo than the loser loses. And thats not just 1 point from rounding, but sometimes 3 or 4 more.

Topic: Nightbanes / Bug Reports

I believe battle charger’s leaving the game effect might be bugged.
After it died the stun animation showed up on 3 enemy creatures, but the next turn none of them were bugged.
This leads me to 2 possible conclusions:

1) one of the creatures was a sly fox and evaded the stun and therefore all stuns were evaded (although the other 2 creatures had no evade skill). If thats the case and intended, sorry for reporting a false bug ;-)

2) since the stun happens in the enemies round (due to mount getting damaged) it is lifted immeadiately after the round has ended. writing that, I realise that this might also be intended since the stun could hit enemies that did not attack yet and stunning them for the next round would essentially stun them for 2 rounds (after all the stun takes effect immeadiately).

So in retrospective there might be nothing wrong with this, but could someone please confirm to me how the leaving play stun ability is intended to work and if it is supposed to only be active for the turn it was triggered in if it can also stun creatures that allready attacked (which would be quite lame)?

The truth about alliance challenges

Kong’s Landing did some testing and can now proudly present you the real action types of AC’s! Thank us by joining us ;-)
As you probably do not know, the icons in alliance challenges are not the correct action type, in fact the action types in alliance challenges don’t even change for the different parts. The action type is allways the type of part 3.
Following is a list of the real action types.
(this was tested for battle actions only, and the other actions are just a wild guess, but who cares for these anyway :-D)

Braving the Green Waters
Aid-Steal-Barter

Kingsroad Ambush
Fight-Sabotage-Bribe

Against the Wildling Horde
Harass-Sabotage-Barter

Tourney in the Marches
Fight-Spy-Bribe

Slaver’s Bay
Aid-Sabotage-Barter

Fire At The Arsenal
Harass-Spy-Bribe

Shadowcat Hunt
Fight-Steal-Bribe

Another guess is that these “rules” also apply for normal boss challenges, but it wasn’t tested yet. If you got information about this matter please post here or tell Kong’s Landing (chat room 7).

Special thanks goes to Kelodragon, who crafted “Bambi” the best fight weapon ever seen and made the tests with it.

my drop rate list was updated

My previous ticket was regarding lineage titles not working. I’ve unlocked 4 of them and so far haven’t been able to use a single one after reincarnating so I don’t think your fix has worked.

The titles are not intended to work after reincarnation, you have to earn them again.

Retrieve the boss battle ID of someone elses boss battle

Go onto the page of the SS you sent to a boss battle, right click and inspect element on the “view progress” button and search for “questDisplayById”. The number after this is the original boss battle ID.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Kongs Landing

Yesterday we did 16 (!!! some exclamation marks just to brag a bit) Alliance Challenges and reached #3 on the leaderboard, but it will be hard to keep this spot and even harder to advance further. Therefore we need YOU. Join us now and become a part of the one true Kongregate alliance that has been around as long as the game itself (on Kong)!

P.S.: We are also searching for other alliances that are willing to merge into Kong’s Landing. This would not only increase our power, but will also increase alliance member happiness by a ton since it would allow us to shedule AC’s not just at 18gmt, but also at the regular AC time of the merging alliance.

Drop rates for Dragon Hunters

The following “drop-rates” are not the actual drop rates. In fact they aren’t even drop rates, but the rate at which I win the adventure AND get the desired item. I started recording the following statistics some time after the “real” drop rates became hidden. If somewhere after this point the drop rates where changed, this would also influence the accuracy of my numbers, BUT when my sample size grows the numbers will still converge towards the current drop rates.
Also note that the numbers I present you depend on my win rate for these adventures and therefore the number of items you get will be higher/lower than indicated by the percentage shown here.

tl;dr / “I don’t care for explanations”
Here are the numbers:

Sacrifices:

V2, lvl92 (Day):
41/5068 = 0,808997632%
V2, lvl99 (Night, +Valyrian Glyphs):
121/11375 = 1,063736264%
V3, lvl103 (Night, +pure water):
54/5685 = 0,949868%

Ceremonial Bowls:

V2, lvl93 (Day and Night):
6/879 = 0,682594% (sorry, quite small sample size)
V2, lvl98 (Day and Night, +Weirwood):
48/5013 = 0,957510473%
V3, lvl102 (Day, +Valyrian glyphs):
29/4411 = 0,657447%

Crystal Sword:
V2, lvl90 (Night):
14/1278 = 1,095462%

Valuable Prisoner:
V3, lvl81 (Day)
35/4022 = 0,870213824%

I will update these numbers every few days

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Kong's Landing Alliance Vote

To be honest I didn’t really want to participate in this, but I guess as a founding member of Kong’s Landing thats kind of a duty I have to fullfill.

First of all a change of leadership will not solve the real problem we faced today. Like erebs rightfully stated, atm a leader has nearly now power over the alliance, he is just some kind of rookery care-taker.
If we’d change leadership erebs (or other people) could still refuse to donate things if certain people want to start an alliance challenge. What really has to change in my opinion is the way we see alliance challenges and the top donators.
Regarding donations the first thing we should think of should be the alliance (power) and not the power of individuals. Of course everyone can still favour certain people with their barter hordes, but for an alliance challenge the priority should be to start them and not to let a certain person start them.
Additionally I think the starting of the challenges should be some kind of reward for the top donators and not a tool for personal power gain.

Now to cut this short my opinion on the 3 canidates nominated so far:

Erebs: He is a great figurehead for our alliance. He expresses our anti FB position and our lust for a top ally ranking. But he kind of lacks the empathy for people who do not play as exessively as he is and comments like the one presented today really hurt the climate in the alliance and can possibly weaken our position drastically.

WW: He seems to be a really nice, helpfull and calm guy. Definetly very good for the climate in the alliance, but imo he lacks the fierceness needed to represent Kong’s Landing to the outside world. I think he can be considered as the opposite of erebs. If you want big change in Kong’s Landing he probably is the guy for you.

Tiro: I guess he could be considered as a mix between erebs and WW. He definetly has the wits to represent Kong’s Landing in a fierce (and funny way) and he seems to be respectfull towards other people (if he isn’t obviously trolling around). I guess he might be a really good strategist, but atm there are no real strategical options a leader can decide on.

Like the system is now, my vote would go to erebs, since leadership of the alliance is just a representative thing. He just is #1 on the leaderboard and HMR would definetly make fun of us if we would put erebs down.
But if leadership of an alliance will have more strategical value my vote would definetly go to Tiro. When faced with different opportunities he would probably take the advise of other players into considerations, while Erebs might just decide on his own (which is probably quite king like in a RP sense).

Tl;dr A change of leadership won’t change anything.
The way we see ally challenges has to change.
In the future (after some improvements to the ally system) Tiro might be the best leader.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent / Game of Thrones Ascent Wiki

“Perhaps… Why Kongregate is the best platform to play on…”

Easy answer: Because we have the live chat. Inmformation is spreading very fast there.
There are nearly no players in chat 1 who don’t know about reincarnation/friend request links/sharing “lost” boss battle link or other things that casual player would normally not know about.
Basically we have a Wiki in chat, but I’ll check out your Wiki and maybe we can save us some time in the future and redirect people to your page.

just a piece of advise, you should not care about what house your members belong to.
In about 2 weeks even you will be loyal to another house.
If you do not know what im talking about, you should inform yourself about reincarnation.

You are right about the quest time bug, but wrong about the adventure time. The adventure reduction is working.
