Topic: Tyrant / [Community contest] Create your own card – Season 2 – Part B - OPEN - Round 1, Battle 3

A tough one. I don’t really like “hounds” be it thules or roughshod, plus I don’t think Blood Hound would see that much play while we have Grims, and the protect is not that synergic with legion (legion = many BT = more randomness in the protect target). However that also makes the card balanced, and the enfeeble might work with Grims after all (swipe, more chance to actually hit the enfeebled foe).

Cutlass is a very nice idea imho, but far less balanced. Cutting down its hp a bit, or reducing either rally or berserk (making one on attacked and the other on kill for example), or replacing swipe with something weaker would have been nice. As it is, it has a huge potential of getting out of control way too fast (for example with a research center supporting it). At least if it was unique…
Picturing it in the current meta hmmm…well useless vs Fear; not much use vs Marmoda; Usials/Terra’s stop the Swipe; Rats will trigger bersek on atkd, but it won’t rally itself (phase)…Loyal Arrester can kill it unless cleanse comm. (would work well with Tabitha I guess…)
I’d drop its hp to 7/8 and make it unique tho.

My vote goes to Cutlass just because it’s more interesting to me than a third type of legion 2 drop 2 (I’m also a fan of Gristle Tooth, that’s the BT legion guy to me^^), but I do think Blood Hound is way more balanced (I was actually gonna vote Blood Hound, changed my mind as I was typing…as I said, tough one…)

Topic: Tyrant / Snake Order VS Legion Of Doom

I strongly doubt SO would be so dumb to use snake-named alts if they wanted to win wars with them.

If anything those are chief_keef’s or whoever’s alts created for a situation like this.

Then again I also doubt SO would not see though this, so if they accepted them in their faction they might have just pretended not to realize those were alts :/ unless they joined in much different periods and stayed there as “sleeper agents” for a while until the time was right for this? Sounds crazy…

I like the 1/6/1 Gatito better as well, although I’m not a big fan of legion tbh.

That’s because the 1/3/1 version is just too “wild”, although in some way still balanced: it will either die right away or win you the game xD. If it manages to flurry for the first time, it will already reach 7 atk. I think for example Monarch + this or even just Grimclaw + this gives it a nice chance to berserk. Assuming Gnorlock as commander, otherwise it gets shut down not only by Mayumi* but by Moya as well…

In other words I think it might be even too much of a glass cannon. But if you really want a berserk 2 flurry 2 1-drop you don’t have many options… maybe give up disease for +1 or +2 hp, or give it just berserk 1 and some more survivability, dunno. There’s room to toy with stats a bit imho.
Maybe +1 or +2 HP, drop berserk to 1 and replace disease with leech? Just throwing around some ideas.

As for the legion version, 0 damage is prolly even better than 1 :)

As for Excalibur, I’m inclined towards keeping it as it is atm. I can’t picture a situation where it’s really OP, can anyone suggest some? The only thing that comes in mind is Baltazar: it would become a 3/5/1 with enfeeble all 2, protect self 5, berserk 1. Maybe I can drop the protect to 2? but then rats would get it, it’s already kinda prone to Phase vs rats on surge :/

Imagine he opens with CW => you Excalibur => he CW again = gg… Vs either Moya or Mayumi you won’t make a dent even with 3 atk + enfeeble all 1, vs Terra or Raptor* you’re not in a good shape either. At least with Protect 3 it would survive Grims+Gnorlock (and avoid immobilize)…

I’m trying to picture a situation where it’d be gamebreaking but not so many of them really (at least in this meta), right?

Topic: Tyrant / [Community contest] Create your own card - Main topic

I agree it’s on legendary level if you look at most current cards. But when you look at the ones that get played is it still that good?

Templar*, Sustained Nimbus, Mending Sanctum, Marrow*, Primus, Metatron*, they all have a much larger impact on the game in the respective decks I’d say.

Lion’s Mane, another Unique, has a much larger impact too.

Where could this be played if it was legendary? I can easily convert it, but I was trying to make something meta-worthy, and maybe that would influence meta, slightly.

I was trying to picture it against most decks, there are many cards who’d beat it. But most importantly I don’t see a deck where it would fit that easily atm…was meant to revive QS or at least Bodin…

Thanks for the insight, I think fast cards have to be quite OP compared to current 1-drops in order to be viable, but it’s easy to make them too OP I guess^^

I’ll give it a try here this time before I submit it, if anything for the explanation. Yet another try to revamp fast decks as opposed to current beefy ones. I do hope I’ll be allowed to retry with my previous entry at some point tho :) I know both are well above current wait 1 average, but current wait 1 average cards suck so hard…

So, a 1 wait enfeeble all 1 with some survivability and slow growth potential.

+fast
+can deal some damage especially if followed by fast strike AoE assaults (strike all/swipe)
+similar to Mending Sanctum, will work better if it’s the only righteous in the deck (although much less survivable; now that we have stuff like Raptor*, Roughshod, Marmoda, Balefire etc, protect 3 with 5 hp won’t necessarily last long)
+can be dangerous with Baltazar/Odin* prolly.

-loses sinergy with other righteous cards as its main defense would kinda go out of the window
-being an assault, its enfeeble only works for assaults played after it (so won’t affect commander’s/structures’ strike for example)
-by itself will still have a hard time vs current meta monsters, both imperials and xeno are likely to give it a lot of trouble

I wanted to see how such a card would work…with Balty, Tempest Hold etc it has potential but in current meta it wouldn’t be OP at all I think.

Let me know if there’s some huge mistake plz, before I post it!

Well, that’s bulllshit imho. Shawn Michaels nearly beat the Undertaker the first time around, he got the closest that probably anybody ever got and he still lost but fucking Lesnar does it? Makes no sense…… smh

Why, Lesnar is prolly the less fake of them, isn’t he?

Are there levels of “realness” in scripted wrestling?

There are wrestlers who can do better than others in an actual fight I guess…

Lesnar is a toolbag with no personality whatsoever, he’s not that even good at wrestling anymore or fighting in general, and disappears from the roster periodically on a regular basis. Of all the wrestlers, past and present, why would it be a guy like Lesnar in his current form and presence who would snap a streak like that?

I haven’t followed wrestling lately so can’t really tell about the last few years. My guess would be that Undertaker got kinda old by now and really had to lose at this point (absurd streak as he hasn’t really been the best in every wrestlemania imho).

But I recall Lesnar from his pre-UFC period and he had a hell of a character.

Crowd: “You betrayed! You betrayed!”

Lesnar: “I’m the Champ! I’m the Champ!”

And he did great in MMA too…maybe he’s down now, I dunno…as I said, not up to date so I’ll take your word…

So how exactly does BW cheat now (or in the last months etc.?)

Because while it wouldn’t be BW’s burden, we have a strong tell that we don’t acc share, having lost many important wars on sheer lower activity.

Of course not, but the family of a murderer or pedophile/rapist would still be treated badly by some people for the simple reason of hate.
Using “…. pass to his son” is a simple phrase meaning direct relations suffer if the crime is bad enough.

If it was in fact 2 and not 3, that is still 2 too many.
How were they proved to be empty hate born accusations might I ask?

Only thing saving BW from your history is the fact Bama and Sean are both heavy warbonders,devs would not cut off their supply of income over a game.

I agree about point 1), but wouldn’t it be unfair to mistreat the family for their ancestor’s sins? It’s like prejudice towards german people because of WWII and stuff like that right?

As for the past catfacings, point 1) alone would eliminate their meaning. There was a recent discussion about how a faction can change if most of its members are different and its way of doing things is different. I have seen no cheating in BW since I joined (end 2013) and I trust Sean is telling the truth about the same since when he joined.

The third is a long one. Let me rephrase: the burden of proof is on the accuser, and they were unable to provide any proof (“proof” = even strong suspicion in this case if you prefer, since we’re not in a court. Although I’d rather just look at facts, because with the amount of crap we get thrown at, it’s easy to create suspicions).

Bama and Sean are not the only heavy warbonders in this game. And whether they’d get banned if they were cheating is one thing, to simply assume they do cheat because they’re heavy warbonders is another.

The sins of thy father pass to his son.
3 Times,regardless of how many of the original BWers stayed is not the point.
That self declare bug is also a prime example of your faction’s stupidity as well.
There is also the problem of your alts spying in other factions and the people you have positioned in my room to keep tabs on us that also makes me question your faction’s legitimacy.

And no,BW is not the only faction that cheats, GoW recently disbanded,blasted bots.
0,0,0 or 0’0’0 can’t remember which one it is has a history of botting,sharing and alting as well.
There was also that faction of alts mentioned in a thread a week or so ago too,screw them too.
As for any others out there, bring them to light with proof and I’ll hate them too.

Cheating on a game as simple as tyrant is stupid and if you don’t feel like playing fairly with others,then don’t play.

Ehmm except BW doesn’t cheat, Sherlock. Sins of the father pass to his son, in this context, really? That’s gonna be your argument?

Just stop.

After dealing with tons of stress over the past few months in the army, I come back to visit these forums and people are making such a big deal over something so small it’s laughable. Even if he is cheating with alts for opening raids, it isn’t affecting your gameplay and nobody should care. There’s other types of cheating out there that is FAR more of a priority, but since Bama is well known and leads a powerful faction it makes you feel good calling him out. Bringing someone’s rep down is a form of entertainment around here.

Something you should all know about Tyrant (and for you veterans like Hoschi you need to be reminded apparently): half your friends cheat and you don’t even know it. And for other players, half their friends cheat and they do know it, but they don’t care. Bunch of hypocrites around here.

I am excluded from your assumption that everyone cheats because I don’t and all my tyrant friends quit.
His faction is only powerful because of the sharing,if they didn’t share or have alts they would be so far down the list people would be saying “Better World? Whats that?”
Dunno about you, but I have had a good look at BW’s history and its patchier than the quilt I had when i was a baby.

Bama cheats to get ahead, no respectable member of the tyrant community would ever just let that slip, a lot of people spent ages working their way up and he just laughs at everyone and blows through it.
Thats wrong in every aspect,whether you like it or not.

Lol by the looks of your post you don’t know who I am and I don’t feel like typing it out. I have so much to say back it isn’t even worth it.

No, I do not know who you are and I don’t care.
As far as I’m concerned you are a BW fanboy and thats all that really matters to me.

Try me sucka, I’m waiting for your unbiased enlightenment.

Shhhh go home Shieru, you’re drunk.
