Tips

General consensus is to buy gold packs until you get a substantial number of repeats. Then enclave becomes more viable,solely on better card drop rates.
Gold packs vs enclave packs

Specifically, the cost of Sealed Gold tournament Plus Keep Cards is 20k! 4 boosters. 20k. retail price 5k/apiece. PLUS you get 2 hours of fun and experience, PLUS you get 50% chance to win “some” cash back, plus you get a chance to finish at the top and win huge, up to Apollo.
Henceforth, noone should ever buy Gold Packs from store, at all. Save for 4, wait for Gold Sealed. That and only that.

Amazing work! This soooo much needs to be sticked!

Btw, mate, as this is an “assorted FAQ” thread… could you stick the proverbal “buy GOLD packs” in big letters somwhere?

 
Flag Post

Are you referring to this thread: Gold packs vs enclave packs
Or do you mean in general Buy Gold Packs under say a new category called Tips.

Personally. I think that:
Buying gold packs is a personal choice.Once you reach the high 90s/111 of the standard set, enclave becomes a more viable choice. You have to risk the 5000 gold on gold packs after that for a slim chance on a decent draw of cards.

 
Flag Post

I’m referring to the top1 question in chat: what kinda boosters should I buy. I believe every single newbie asks it. Your answer is correct, tho i’d paraphrase: “buy gold until you either get all you want from there or get over 90s/111 and start getting too much useless repeats”. Just something to guide people, cuz it’s really a question asked every half an hour in every full channel.

THe link ot topic can probably do the trick, IMO. It’s funny, but it conveys the message.

Factions should make some Official Recruitment threads

Please provide the:
Requirements: I.E. (Level 10+)
Recruitment Link: http://www.kongregate.com/games/synapticon/tyrant?source=finv&kv_apply= (6 digit number) ← Looks something like that. (remove the amp; from recruitment links to join factions)

Also, for the ones that are listed, if it is not your official recruitment thread, please tell me what your official recruitment thread is.
Any Missing Factions please post your Official Recruitment Thread.

If some one is good with HTML, could you help me with formatting the Faction Recruitment Thread. I want to order the factions in groups(in this case 10 for now) side by side in 3 columns across.
I tried making it in a table,but I couldn’t get it to work on here.

At the moment i am just spacing everything with &nbsp (1 space in HTML).
What i would like to do later if i can organize it well, is separate them into Full Factions,and Actively Recruiting Factions. Then move them between the two categories,as they change from full to recruiting,and vice versa.

It’s interesting to note that FU’s thread “[Guide] For starters and intermediate players” was originally named something along “[Guide] Cards and Buying Packs.” and somewhat subtly told people just that. =)
