This is untrue: Players are content.

When a player leaves, the overall content of a game diminishes.

Depending on the social connections an individual player had, their departure of the game may dramatically alter the content a game may deliver to other players.

This is one reason why the departure of a centrally situated player may result in a cascade of less well connected players also leaving the game.

The amount of money spent is not determinative of the strength or quantity of the social relationships (i.e. game content) an individual player represents.

Therefore, a better a question is: How much game content did you represent? If little, the devs don’t care. :)

Further elaborating on this, you should be aware that if you play for free, you are probably part the product. The people who pay need punchbags or they will stop paying.

It’s sad you have actual RL reasons to quit.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Will Tyrant die?

Data above (as pointed out) counts players active within 24 hours. There are obviously more players since some might not play every day.

Tyrant will likely stick around as long as it’s still profitable to run it. I played a game in the mid 2000s having a 3k subscriber base ($10 a month) back then, that game is still running since the 150 fools who left their subscription on auto-renew still make it profitable. About 40 players are active in that game.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Will Tyrant die?

Tyrant died at about June, 2011. That some of you fail to realize it is your problem. ;]

reference: Tyrant activity revisited

Edit: While I’m not giving much of a thought of tyrant now, have some more current data on this from when dear fruit BaNaNa was still online:

Nov 01, 2012:
<@BaNaNa> 402 factions and 7130 players were active last 24 hours.

Dec 01, 2012:
<@BaNaNa> 532 factions and 6880 players were active last 24 hours.

Jan 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 465 factions and 6066 players were active last 24 hours.

Feb 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 561 factions and 5872 players were active last 24 hours.

Mar 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 588 factions and 6593 players were active last 24 hours.

Apr 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 555 factions and 6110 players were active last 24 hours.

May 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 513 factions and 6602 players were active last 24 hours.

Jun 01, 2013:
<@BaNaNa> 546 factions and 6674 players were active last 24 hours.

Unlike the graphs linked above, I believe these cover almost everyone playing. I don’t run data mining on tyrant anymore though I kinda wonder if those 6.5k players are still stubborn enough to play.

I’m disappointed by the lack of cow rune. I was looking forward to return to this game only for that.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / What is happening?

Sorry ElMo even I gave up on tracking things, but I doubt player count fell much. People stick to this game for some reason… They might bot and whatnot though.

And last when all top10 was really top was about may 2011, and even then a few were over the others.

very true

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Alt Accounts

Alts can be in factions. However, they can’t interact. Some examples of alts in factions interacting:

- Alt is in the same faction as main
- They are in different factions but they declare wars on each other or attack each other’s tiles
- Main has a war on a 3rd faction and alt’s faction attacks the very same faction

These are my ideas though, but it gives you a clue.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / United Front - Legion 0?

To me it pretty much makes sense that the Legion 1 is overwritten. It was stated that “(overwrites other Legion)”. No idea why it was even a question or why it should be changed.
