Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Kings of the Realm Hiring new Builders

Are the hire-able builders permanent or time based? I’d like to hire a new builder but don’t want to spend gold yet if I ain’t back tomorrow.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Citizen Grim] Don't Bother buying Gold

For Obi: Under the game window you’ll see the games name, tags and then “Game By:” EruptiveGames, IgorKostin45, ObiCynKenobi. These are hyperlinks to their profile pages and unless they have put their profiles private it should open easily.

For anyone who has posted a comment or a forum post: Hover your mouse over their name and a small ‘window’ will open displaying their info. In this window there are two buttons: Friend & Full Profile, clicking profile will open the profile page.

Edit: This also works on the game chat window.

I’m using Chrome and have no idea if it works differently in other browsers.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Citizen Grim] Don't Bother buying Gold

EruptiveGames seems to be dead. Read the comments (and bio) on ObiCynKenobi’s profile page. Reading between the lines it seems that Eruptive screwed their finances and was bankrupted. Citizen Grim & Mercenaries of War are currently in the hands of ????.

I wouldn’t suggest buying gold currently as this game seems to be going straight line towards the abyss. Unless of course you are swimming in cash and losing some kreds don’t matter to you.

May this thread be terminated with an actual game owners response.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Ideas

Con has said that they have no plans to increase the current Survivor population past 10(for now atleast). I can live with that. This doesn’t mean however that they can’t implement some sort of non-combat personnel. These could then act as farmers/builders /defencive scouts/whatever… as long as they make the camp look more lively.

It’s ridiculous; a survivor is approaching the camp “Help me! I haven’t eaten for days and the zombies are after me… Oh sorry I didn’t see you already have 10 people here, I’ll go look help somewhere else.”

Sigh, I really hope Con would implement NPCs in this game.

Topic: Cyberpunks vs Syndicates / Suggestions

About equipping army units:

Suggestion 1:

Pre-set unit equipment packs. Instead of equipping your army units one equipment piece by one, you would by a predetermined set. For example Beginner would buy a ‘Darktech’ -set and the selected army unit would be equipped with the black text gear from Alcatraz missions black market. And you could also sell a slightly more advanced setups for a few Electrum.

Suggestion 2:

I have around 60 army units and it’s infuriating trying to guess their equipment just by their images. Can you put some sort of equipment list available when i have 1 unit selected. It wouldn’t have to be more complex than;

Main Hand:
Off Hand:

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / pay for evrything

You are correct though that unlocking a seal is only gold buyable, but there are items that already have a seal (maybe more I have only seen one unlocked so far) unlocked. As Joblo21 says though, the applying seals has only a marginal benefit on SS. IMO the bulk of the benefit/strength still comes from buildings.


Got myself a rare seal:

Seal of the Fish

3 points to Trade skill
+2% to Barter when Attack/Defend
+2% to Swindle when Attack/Defend

Multiply this by total of 6 seals:

18 points to Trade skill
+12% to Barter when Attack/Defend
+12% to Swindle when Attack/Defend

These stats are only based on a Peerless SS with all 6 Seal slots open. You can further boost those stats with some decent gear with maximum total of extra 18 slots.

This is only based on a single blue seal I’ve gotten so far so I have no idea how much more powerful Legendary/Peerless Seals are.

You are correct in saying that the bulk of the strength comes from the buildings. But especially for a reincarnator like me a decently pimped SS will go a long way in making life much more fun.

EDIT: A small warning/reminder, using a seal on a item does not make it a permanent one so be careful of losing any good seals.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / reincarnation or not?

As wastedkane said focus mainly on your houses main stat, but also put some points in an alternate stat to avoid any nasty surprises. I’m currently Stark so it’s Aid and Barter for me. I will delve into intrigue only after I run out of useful points in those trees.

A lvl 35 can send a (35/5= 7 +2 you get at the beginning) total of 9 adventures at any given time. I like to keep near Command Point limit +2-3 for quests. 20 SS will require a lvl of 90 to be able to fully use, so don’t buy anymore.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / Maybe this is why my SS fail so often....?

Hi, was your SS wounded when you started? Just for fun I played with the numbers and came up with:

Commander: 119 + 5% to Swindle
SS: 52 + 6% to Swindle
Total: 171 + 11% to Swindle= 189.81, but if you treat the SS as wounded (1-2 less points) you get 188 (+/- half a point)

EDIT; is this a quest? I couldn’t find the original post but I remember reading a DB post saying they had to tweak the combat mechanic because many quests were unintentionally set to auto-succeeding, even if you lost the roll.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / reincarnation or not?

When reincarnating you keep:
– 1 Talent Point per reincarnation, most ppl use these to unlock fealty specific buildings.
– All items marked “Permanent”
– Gold
– Building upgrades requiring gold will remain unlocked through reincarnation cycles, I haven’t unlocked any talents but I assume those would remain as well.
– Food items like “The Fresh-Baked Bread” from the Sept. You could farm these in a previous reincarnation to speed up the next one.
– Your Power

You lose:
– Silver
– Your lvl
– every item not marked permanent or food
– Your Sworn Swords (There are no permanent Sworn Swords that I know of.)

There are 2 permanent items that can be gained by the end of volume 1: Obsidian Dagger and Valyrian Steel Dagger and atleast the Valyrian dagger should be easy to gain by sticking to chosen aligments. You can get 1 of each dagger every every reincarnation cycle, if going for all the fealty buildings this would net you 8-10 permanent attack items by you last reincarnation. If you start collecting them immediately later reincarnations will get a lot simpler.

The first time you play it will take a longer time because you don’t know what you’re doing, hell it took me a month just to figure out how to use my SS properly. I’d suggest you read though gidder’s Quick Q&A for Beginners as its a very good source for speeding up gameplay.

Personally I feel that the main reason to reincarnate is to get a chance to get a Baby Dragon and to do this you will need to have (currently) all five fealty buildings and the earlier one does this the easier it will be. I don’t want to spend 6 months upgrading everything and then realize I need to restart/reincarnate to get a dragon, which i feel is one of the main goals of this game.

Topic: Game of Thrones Ascent: General (Westeros Discussion) / [to devs] First Time Gold Promotion

I have been playing MMOs on Kongregate for a few years now and this isn’t the first time a “First Time Promotion” happens. It’s basically a Starter Kit sale, intended to hook new players into the game. As it’s usually a fairly steep discount, these event are meant 1 per customer/account. I have also put kreds into this game at an earlier date and I also got the pop-up, so i believe this is a first time DisruptorBeam is running this particular promotion/event.

@TheRealPip Your gold buying has not affected anything as this is a server/Kongregate wide event. If anything you are slightly unlucky for buying gold just hours before the event started. These events usually run for a few days to 2 weeks, I’d personally suggest you contact DB support directly or take the offer, else you might be stuck until the event is over.


On a related note… I’ve been asked by a few players who have previously purchased gold if they, as the pop up is telling them, are eligible for the promotion (after all – they’re not first time buyers).

Buying in-game currency rarely removes the eligibility for these events, however participating in a previous “First Time” – event usually removes the right to join the next one. But then they should not get the pop-up.

And, one such person (who I’ve advised contact you directly) is complaining that despite the pop-up they didn’t receive any bonus gold… (so if anyone’s in the same position, they may want to wait for clarification from DB before purchasing).

Witch gold pack did he buy? These deals are often tied to certain packs and I got mine just fine. In the ingame pop-up there was a ‘picture’ with 200 gold written on it, clicking it I was asked to deduct 200 kreds from my account,following that I got my promised 200 gold. Usually this offer only gives 100 gold + 5%= Total 105 Gold. If this person did not go through the pop-up and instead went trough the ‘regular’ channel there is a chance the game did not recognize the he/she wanted the special deal and instead gave up the normal amount.

Of course these are only my personal experiences and opinions, and anyone worried should seek official word from DB.

anyone know what the carrier harness does? i mean, it says it adds +2 carry limit, since when we have a carry limity?

Without seeing it I’d have to guess it’s talking about the active gear ie grenades. In other words you can carry 2 more grenades with you.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / BOOK MAJOR GLITCH

First of all, ConArtists is known to NEVER read these forums, go to their own forums for support , Second, where does the book say you’re meant to run missions during it’s effect period? I ain’t feeling any real bugs here and I doubt you’ll get much sympathy/help here. You could ask if they would terminate the books effect and you’d lose the fuel, but it’s probably going to be easier to just wait the book out.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Heroes of the Realm I want to know how to make a good set of heroes

I don’t think there is any really good set of heroes, as the whole Effective/Ineffective thing seems to add a substantial change to the combat units prowess during battle. I have had my ass beaten several times by putting ‘Ineffective’ troops in combat, even if those troops succeeded in the previous battles.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Wasteland Empires] Wasteland Kongregate will continue to be updated with new chapter and tiers!

@KaneGC Do you think you could get some sort of an roadmap for the game published here, especially for the Kongregate platform?

I don’t think anyone expects you release all features and content currently present on the Facebook version but we don’t like been left sitting in the dark either. There is simply too many good (enough) games on kongregate for me to look back after a game has lost it’s fun factor. However should you(=Crowdstar) post a message saying you are going to add new material by Month X it just might be worth it to hang around and check it out, and maybe even spend some money on the game.

This might sound rude but…

I like this game, I really do, but it’s not my my job to hang around hoping something fun comes out, it just isn’t. It’s the game publishers job to convince me, their (potential) customer that their product is worth my money. And Kane, I know you are just a middle man here but, but Please try to make the developers understand that if they want the kongregate player base to produce money they need to make us believe that we matter. Nobody wants to go to a store where the clerk doesn’t know when they’ll get new product.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Wasteland Empires] Wasteland Kongregate will continue :)

Good to know that I don’t need to waste anymore time on this game. I liked the concept and gameplay+graphics were nice, but I never spent any money in this game because it always felt too incomplete.
