That HBO..................and that clone of a game.

GOT conquest, found out it came out a few days whats your thoughts?

personally I love that type of war/strategy game with troop building and castle raiding, but I never could get in the mobile version of such games , never really like the look or feel of them (seems like too much stuff happening on my little screen at once) but more than that ever since a certain few rose to riches its pretty much been the same game just with different images, combine with just how paywall heavy these types of games are (far more so with the mobile versions and all those micro payments they try to wiggle out of you) I really just can't see myself getting into it...............PLUS I FEEL LIKE I WOULD BE TURNING TRAITOR.


  • I don't know if you're on Facebook (most of us are, due to AvA) but, we had a discussion about this in The Pit, along with the video ad posted by GoT and a video review, and the consensus was mixed. Honestly, I'm too invested in GoTA to go there, and I think most other GoTA players are, too. There are some disadvantages in that game but, one of the important pluses is that you don't have to reincarnate your main character. The big thing that came out of the video review is that it is very "pillage and plunder" intensive - stronger characters and alliances constantly prey upon the weaker ones to grow, which is something we don't have to deal with here on GoTA. Apparently they DO have a "safety shield" for when a player is out of their game but, it must have it's limitations. According to the reviews of some of the players, one's game can be decimated severely if the player is not around to defend themselves, or are too weak to defend themselves. So, I think I'll stick with GoTA. At least we do have protection from that. I have to take game breaks from time to time, due to real life circumstances, and I don't like the idea of coming back to nothing if I'm gone longer than expected.

    I am on facebook but never joined the pit
    I'm totally with you with the whole "I'm too invested in GoTA" thing
    As with all games the appeal won't be universal (I actually love the pillage and plundering, when I 1st learnt of gota I thought that's what it would be like), but I really just don't see the game adding anything new to that genre except having gota image swaps, and it is true those games take time management to a whole new level and is pretty much all about sating ones competitive nature rather than just enjoying a fun game. One type of such game I really enjoyed playing though, actually made it kind of a mix of that and dungeon style games (as you could actually use your character/hero and adventure out into the surrounding areas an dungeons to kill monsters or other players, plus you could use their special abilities and control your troops during raids....none of which seem to be offered in the pallet swap basic war game that conquest seems to be (though I've actually only watched gameplay videos on youtube).

    gota while not my ideal type of game does offer far more, even though I think it can certainly get better and db should at least invest the time needed to fix the bugs so the game runs smoothly for all of us.
    Personally I have only ever reincarnated my main account once (and that was from stark to stark *face palm*), but some people really enjoy the feature and if not for the fact certain benefits were limited to reincarnates and levels are so hard to gain back after reincarnating, it would actually be a great interesting feature rather than just something different.

    P.S since conquest only just recently came out, its actually the perfect time to get in if one hopes to be top tier latter on.........but it also means having to face all the bugs and issue as they try to iron out the game.
  • The appeal that Conquest had for me is that it seemed that you can view battles in animation in real time. I have since read reviews stating that is not the case. That was something that I initially expected from GoTA, and was really disappointed when I realized that animated play was not part of the game. I had also hoped that we could "role play" by typing in our own responses - no such luck. So far, no game touting anything to do with Game of Thrones has provided exactly what I would like. GoTA is the closest but, I would like to see improvements in the way of animation (if it's even possible). As for reincarnation, I only ever wanted to be a Targ so, I never reincarnated. Honestly, if you max-out your fealty and fully expand your buildings, and use premium gear and seals on your MC, the only thing you're losing by not reincarnating is a faster climb on the power ladder (along with the talent points and percentages, and the extra crafting abilities), and mostly AvA speed. However, it is totally do-able to max your speed in your chosen fealty talent - mine being Spy - by simply acquiring the right speed gear and seals. However, if you want to acquire sync-speed in more than one talent for AvA, you DO need to reincarnate your character, as each fealty has it's own talents and added speed. That is the ONLY advantage to playing Conquest that I can see vs GoTA, as the entire reincarnation process is sidestepped completely - you gain your strength, speed and power through other means.

    0 reincarnations here, and max speed on all AvA actions (and without switching gear). RI is really not necessary anymore. I think it used to be to be able to craft dragons but that's ancient history. Yes, there are some benefits to perming some talent points and the fealty buildings allow you to craft stuff in multiple places, or cheaper but it's hardly worth the time and definitely not worth giving up the progress made on higher level characters.

  • Certainly wont be playing it thats for sure, this is enough quite honestly for me, and like Roxanne the wise said I would hate to find my whole game play decimated because I had been away for a couple of days. blah
  • Offtopic:

    I feel kinda relived seeing several "old-playing" Lords writing they have never reincarnated much and that it doesn't affect their gameplay.

    So what for many players reincarnate then?

    I'm just thinking whether I'm making a big mistake deciding not to reincarnate at all :smile:
  • Well what can I say!!! Reincarnation does have benefits in crafting, speeding up various parts of the game, protecting silver, better chances of gaining superior weapons, chance of revival of dead swords without penalty and a whole host of things. But it does depend on your goals within the game, your style of play and satisfaction of achieving something through hard work and persistence.

    I started 4 years ago and decided after a year to start to RI to perm every fealty with every talent point available. 3 years later and I have 19 RI's left... whether it will be beneficial in the end time will tell. My next goal is to power level to the max.

    As for playing any other GOT game.. no thanks.. I've invested enough time in this one.. and some money! Yes the game could be better, what game couldn't,. My point is play the game the way you want... meet and make new friends (and enemies) from all over the world, participate in the community spirit, get what you want from the game and enjoy the experience. Once the fun stops... stop! Despite the criticism I think DB have done a good job in keeping it together and work hard to give players a rich and varied experience good and bad :smile:

    Good luck on how you decide to play this game and if you decide to play another enjoy the experience.. each to their own but most of all have fun with it :smile:

  • I'm one of those that never RI-ed. Couldn't be bothered and after a while it's too late as you have already built up the account and would lose all progress, even with perming ss and peerless gear.
    If you are not sure what you want to do, I would advise to just do it now rather than later, get the fealty buildings and +1 GP's (14 RI's total). Then all you need to decide is what house you want to end up as so you can avoid that one until the end (no permed talents necessary). That way you can check it out and decide if you like RI-ing or not, while still getting the best talent points permed. My guess is you will stop at 14 RI's and start power leveling and never look back.

    change my mind I'm going to dump shady db and their crap and go deal with wb and their crap
  • nah, you don't need to perm any talents in the house that you choose to end up in, it will be your last house and you will get all those talents after leveling up. And the silver related ones....also nah, not worth spending 4 years of your life perming them. You'll get plenty silver after you level up, I have my keepsakes running 24/7. Stick to the fealty buildings and +GP's. If you really enjoyed reincarnating feel free to do more but it's not necessary, is all I'm trying to say.

    Wb=warner bros, they are the ones behind/running game of thrones conquest.
  • Not into Conquest games only CK2 is likeable to me.
    While got ascent has some ties with the asoiaf saga,Got Conquest has none(poor worked game with the faces of the actors and merchandising).

    The last resource of HBO before throwing away the main saga and D&D money casher.

    I'm not saying its great or that it really relates to the game of thrones world..........but with the crap db is pulling I might as well try my hand elsewhere.

    Personally I favor hero civilization/lords online, haven't played in ages but might end up returning now.

    I haven't RI'd either, I'm about Max speed for Battle, which is my specialty. I have played the game almost three years, the first two and change I amassed 318 levels and began to get serious with BQ's and AC's. I am now at just over a thousand, over 700 levels in ten months and I am loathe to give them up in order to RI!

    I can't just go on a year hiatus to RI all of the other fealties and have to go through intense powerleveling just to gain back the levels I lost. Not to mention all of my SS that haven't been permed, even if I just stuck to naming them it would be a good amount. In any event my alliance needs me and my GP. Glad to see the different perspectives, especially from those who , like myself, haven't RI'd.
  • Join the club. Haven't reincarnated and don't plan on doing that. Not my style.
