Topic: Rise of Mythos / [To Stormshade] We need a merge of servers please!

Well, seems this game gave its best. This game, do not need a merge, it needs a lot of new players. But unbalance is simply too big, so only logical conclusion is…you guess :) (there is usually around 100-150 ppl online per server, like at this moment in total 607 ppl online on all kongregate RoM servers)

You say it needs a lot of new players but not a merge… Let’s look at this logically. Brand “new” players will not be competition for the already established player base, they will not be ready to compete for months. Currently there are 7 different/separate servers on Kongregate alone, and all 7 of them are suffering from the same problem, low amount of players/competition.

Let’s compare this to baseball. You have 7 different baseball fields with a handful of players on each. On each field you do not have enough players to make 2 full teams, so you play a half-assed boring game of baseball against the same old people every time. And there are not enough players to really make it feel competitive, it doesnt feel as rewarding to win. Remember this is happening on ALL 7 DIFFERENT FIELDS.

So one day, Joe from field 1 has a brilliant idea!! He goes and talks to the players for field 2 and field 3 and asks them to come join field 1! Now, they can have full teams, real competition and new players to interact with! Happy, happy, joy, joy! Bottom line: we need a merge soon.

Topic: Tyrant / [To Devs] New Bug: CQ 5 Damage Bug

This happened in Warlike Brother once. At the beginning of the CQ it showed 130 hp/slot and then someone on the other side left with components and it dropped hp down to 120. Slots we had already hit showed 115/120.

A merge at this time will kill the hole game…

First of all, not all the servers are ready for a merge. Some are newer than others and the players have not advanced enough to be combined with those that have been around for a bit. I will assume you are on one of those servers.

Secondly, the same attitude was felt in general by both sides before the Stone/Snowy merge, doomsday speak. While there were some that quit after the merge, as a whole, it was a very, very good thing. It took a little adjusting, but in the end it was great for the game.

Finally, what is killing this whole game is that players are starting to drop like flies from my server. The oldest one with a ton of whales. They are bored and have no competition, the game has become stale. THAT, my friend, will kill the whole game.

P.S. The 2 acct thing happened with the first merge, it did not create any issues.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [To Stormshade] We need a merge of servers please!

This has been mentioned a few times, but I believe it is getting critical. It is also becoming unreasonable as on servers where one guild has zero competition (or did for a long time) they are gaining unfair amounts of cp.

My guild has been around since Spring of last year on the Stone Ruins server (the oldest server). This is what our guild rankings and totals look like:

The highest amount any guild has is 3,939,119. The 2nd guild to hit lvl 8 just did so yesterday.

This is from one of the much newer EU servers:

The highest guild there has 4,147,334 cp. Does anyone else see the problem with this?

Also, the queue times are outrageous…on all the servers.

This was from Stone Ruins/Stony Fort/FB’s Ayer’s Squire/Gamefuse’s Shimmering Cave:

And this is from Castle of Bones/Slumbering Cemetery/FB’s Lost Crossroads:

These queue lengths are not that uncommon.

Furthermore, a lot of Stone/Snowy etc players have been at level 60 for months and months. We need more competition and a merge is the perfect way to accomplish this.

Please let us know if something is in the works to address these issues Stormshade, thanks!

P.S. Please give cow runes!

Ralk never coming back to Tyrant cuz Rise of Mythos is better in every way

Rise of Mythos sucks in every way.
Only reason people would play it right now is because they need to find a way to kill time when their energy and stamina is empty.

RoM is better than Tyrant in every way. At least with RoM, the game doesn’t get oversimplified by a simulator and optimizer.

Optimizer i agree with, but without the simulator you would be blowing 100 energy a shot trying to find a working deck.
At least with the simulator you actually have to think of potential counters to missions and raids before you start simming.

That simulators and optimizer exist shows how linear and stale Tyrant is as a card game. Every other CCG, including RoM, at least have depth that keeps them from being beaten by computational brute force

At the cost of your weekly pay.
This isn’t the place to talk about RoM,this is Tyrant.
If you love RoM so much go play that and leave Tyrant alone.

I think both games are fantastic. What one lacks is a strength in the other. I think both games could learn a lot from the other. However, what I loved about Tyrant is missing nowadays and the devs are barely involved. If the devs ever get their heads out of their asses and make Tyrant exciting again, I will gladly return, but for now, there isnt much for me here sadly.

Topic: Tyrant / LoA's history

Originally posted by Pats133:

lol these responses are quite funny but really tell me nothing

Ok quick bio:

  • Started playing within first 2 weeks Tyrant was on Kong.
  • Lead the faction Flawless (to rank #12) – left in October 2011, Flawless then faded away. Our claim to fame was being the only faction willing (aka had the balls) to schedule a scrimmage with the super scary Rust Company.
  • Was an original Room #3 regular with the DI boys. :D
  • Joined Cloud Nine (#2), helped run it with leaders Hoschisack and Showza.
  • Ran C9 Mercs (the only full blown Merc “service” ever in Tyrant). During this time I joined many different factions, 13 different factions in one day once. :)
  • Help lead LoA2 with 0hio and Dakota337, arguably the strongest faction ever in tyrant.
  • Came up with the idea for Quests and rallied community support which devs implemented.
  • Was a consortium member, most known for yelling at and calling synapse names. :)
  • Am a beta tester (since this has become public knowledge now anyway, meh, may as well own up to it).
  • Destroyed Dos Equis and Alpha Pack.
  • Took over leadership of dying Fluffy Bunny Brigade (while never having been in the faction) and took them back into top 10, then got bored.
  • Joined Dragons (#2) to help them beat MoM. Dragons got #1, I got bored.
  • Formed Warlike Brother, originally a CQ only faction made to mess with MoM. Then we saw the huge alliance and that seemed like more fun to try to take on. WB best known for taking on 10vs1 on the CQ map.

I am probably forgetting a lot, but over the years I have made many friends in the game. I tried to help wherever I could & liked to shake up the game, which at times got me some enemies. For now I am chilling in the Bairs & auto fight from time to time, still consult with devs (when they are around) & hoping that maybe one day this game will be fun for me again. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

That was really damn fast. Did you recognize Papa Legba for some reason or another?

Back in the LoA days, I was searching for images for the forums and came across this exact pic, I think we even teased Dakota that it was him in that pic, I found the topic interesting and read up on the subject after finding it, so I knew it right away! :D (my prize was amazing)

Topic: Tyrant / Who were truly the greatest factions?

Originally posted by SeanDougherty86:

Seems like cate has a lot of perspective here.

I havent heard too much about LoA. What is the coles notes of their story

And why is there an asterix beside a lot of their scores in that inorix thing?

TBH, if someone who hates BW as much as you is willing to rank BW as #4, i’ll take it

I will try to answer this as best as I can. The reason for the asterisks is because there was an original Lords of Avalon(1) and then a remake of it, sometimes referred to as LoA2 (the asterisks are LoA1). The original LoA was (I believe) made up of Goons & MoM players and they were close allies with MoM. It was led by lbhzu. They were strong but not super powered and got bored after climbing ranks and disbanded.

A lot of LoA1 joined a faction called Rust Company which was founded by a father and son, baragmond and dweyhell. Rust Company was a monster power guild, they could beat most of the top factions easily and were just climbing so they took tons of fp. They were also allied with MoM who was #1 at the time and pretty much unbeatable due to wbing power (fishboner/rhuris/others). During RC’s climb to the top, 0hio(RC) and rhuris (MoM) had a huge falling out and 0hio vowed to kill MoM. The leadership of RC (bara/dwey) wasnt so much on board with the murderous MoM plot so 0hio & co left RC to form LoA2 from scratch.

During MoM’s place at #1, they gained A LOT of enemies, rhuris especially. Knowing that LoA2’s single goal was to kill MoM, the best of the best (mostly the heavy wbers and great surgers) from almost every faction in the game left their factions to join LoA2. At the same time LoA2 was forming, Cloud Nine disbanded at #2 – half of their best went to IFS, half of their best to LoA2. IFS & LoA2 worked together to destroy MoM (who at this time was like 600fp above anyone else).

LoA2 kicked MoM’s ass twice daily for months taking a lot of fp with every hit, while IFS did the same. However, MoM and IFS had a no wbing agreement, LoA2 and MoM did not – it was pure hatred between the 2 factions, so much drama. MoM eventually was broken and down to #4, rhuris left the game & gave leadership to shadevarr, LoA2 felt they had won but LoA decided before disband they would at least get #1, which is when they started to fight IFS.

78816 + 21434 = 100 250!!!! and we didn’t get to play the last 10 minutes!

During this war – 100 stam bars, with 5 & 10 mins left (2 wars happening 5 mins apart), an LoA officer decided to catface LoA because he hated all the money being thrown at the game. This catface is what made devs create warmasters! But even missing the last 5 & 10 mins of the wars LoA did 100,250 dmg.

So essentially LoA was the best of the best players from the top 10 factions at the time. It was a whirlwind of drama and fun but while short lived, it served it purpose. Thinking back, while you may think BW is hated, I can guarantee you, MoM was hated far more then (shadevarr turned their rep around).

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I figured some kind of background was needed!

I’m not sure anyone from GW even thinks they are contenders for this as their minds are not warped with egotistical fantasies. If anything, Cloud Nine would be up there or Black Ops or Rust Co.

Topic: Tyrant / Tyrant Drama

Originally posted by Persseo:

I played some MMORPG and the drama is not new for me when here are 2 factions/alliances involved. And this can be extrapolated to many other communities. BW is the most hated because has been the best faction, BW has had many enemies and has beaten all, simply. Nobody remember the loser. What is surprising is that many people continue to hate or hurt even after leaving the game. That I had not seen before.

Well, in the past year the drama in these forums has been very lame. Back in the day there used to be crazy drama with numerous factions involved.

As far as BW being the most hated because they “have been the best” and “had many enemies and beaten all”, not sure that is accurate. There have been far more powerful factions in the history of the game that accomplished much more than BW. BW is hated because of tactics they have used and how they handled the aftermath. LoA was one of the strongest, if not the strongest, faction to ever grace the game. They also were catfaced twice – the difference? LoA admitted they fucked up. There were no “ZOMG LOA WAS HACKED” threads or anyone from LoA saying “we are totally clean and innocent!!”

As for BW being the best with the current state of Tyrant is like winning a race with 2 runners. As far as how they got to the top? That’s comparable to winning in a tug of war match 10 vs 1 (and BW being the only one out of 10 getting credit for “winning”). But to each his own, if that makes you feel like you are the best, more power to you. But dont be delusional, BW is not hated because they are #1, IFS was #1 for a long time and never hated.

Another name that come in my mind is tonytyzhang.. i really don’t know much about him, but rumors said it was involved in alts and bots managing in Evocati at the end of 2011-mid2012! I’ve joined them during a ragequit (from Italian, we were allied with them and there was Elmo in evo) and in 3-4 days in there, he lefted and joined evocati a lot of times. I don’t want to say that Evo cheats, i respect them and propovednik was too dumb to cheat :D

Shian was free, and king until LilyAldrin and Sly_Guy17 came along. DNA was not free, and bought wins.
tonytyzhang is Inorix, if I remember correctly. I might not remember correctly.

This made my day.
