So funny – “I played a game on Facebook but got nothing on Kong” What did you expect?? This is to get kong players from WMT to play and spend on TU.

yea but they also played wmt and now they see the kongppl got something they think they deserve the same things;)

So what, This game is currently hosted on Kong and the reward is linked to kong WMT play. If they ever released TU on FB i wouldn’t go on there claiming rewards from kong. On another note, it does serve them right for playing on Facebook and not being eternally loyal the masterful Kongregate – ALL HAIL KONGREGATE, lol

ALL HAIL KING KONG.

Where is Orbo? How are we supposed to distinguish WMT sophomores from TU freshmen? WHERE IS ORBO?

Warmetal Tyrant was the number one game on Kongregate for two years. To poorly treat its player base is equivalent to suicide.

Topic: WarLight: Multi-Player / [Rise of Rome] Strategy

If you’ve taken over Partha, good news! You’ve pretty much won the game.

If you’re in Europe, you need to watch out for Partha because while you fight your fellow Europeans, Partha would be amassing an army and creeping to take over the entire game.

So a protip for those playing in Europe: all fighting must cease and you must unite together to stop Partha. Otherwise only Partha will win and no one else will stand a chance.

Topic: WarLight: Multi-Player / Cheaters

Creating multiple accounts to curry things in your own favor is not cheating because everyone does it. You are simply giving yourself an equal edge against other players. This is worst in Rise of Rome and Africa maps because the stakes are so huge.

There is no point to have a price increase for all players, even those who are not in those countries.

The dev’s laziness penalizes all players by refusing to implement a simple IP detection system to change the prices from those select countries. Which is most likely patented. So do what Crazy Horse does: go to China and hire programmers for $7,000 USD a year to escape patent infringements.

As far as I understand from my discussion with Kongregate, the prices are only including the VAT price in countries that have the VAT tax.

Good to see some sense from Chicagoians.

Pounds been rising for weeks…. thats the truth. So why are you increasing your prices again????

Please, British pounds are nothing but carnival tickets. You have a ridiculous country that would rather keep control of its wealth that was pilfered and stolen from other countries rather than pay for reparations. The British Pound is as authentic as the Chinese Yuan. Wake up and stop being enslaved by your masters.

Topic: The Gate / An Open Letter to Spicy Horse (麻辣马)

Well, they have a pretty good deal going on for them in China. I heard that Crazy Horse went public somewhere so now they’re sitting on a boatload of investors’ cash. The co-founders could be paying themselves $60,000 to 200,000 USD a year just to sit around and play games while they let their employees do all the work. And their employees are probably paid around $7,000 to 15,000 USD, so there is still plenty of cash going to the co-owners. And investors can’t do shit about it… unless they’re well connected with the Chinese Communist Party.

What is after Tyrant Unleashed? It’s going to be a crossover between CCG and Blizzard Games:

Topic: The Gate / An Open Letter to Spicy Horse (麻辣马)

Dear Spicy Horse (麻辣马),

As a cult fan of American McGee’s psychological and philosophical dark fantasy games, I am largely disappointed in his company’s latest attempt to crossover into the CCG genre.

A theme set in Hell where your guide is Charon and you cross over four elements… with another layer of a pseudo Hell-Human world. Such a plot initially thought to be awesome ended up to be disappointing. Sure, the theme of Hell is a dark joke of the game’s repetitive and endless grind of false hope, depravity, and torture. But even Big Head Bash has a joke that represented conceited idiots who repeatedly “noob” each other in a 2D setting. This Hell-themed opportunity that had great potential for development was wasted.

Not just the theme, but game mechanics as well. This game tremendously lacks in originality, despite its innovation in an MMORPG-stylistic user interface (i.e. crossing over World of Warcraft which may or may not line up copyright violation notices on your doorstep). There is nothing wrong with a Chinese company that creates American-style games. But this is not an American-style game. This is a Chinese-style game. How many more games do we need out there that is a smorgasbord of all the latest features in the most popular games? Let’s be honest here: this game was made by Chinese people for Chinese people.

If you guys want to start being compared with R2Games, Changyou, and Boyojoy (all Chinese gaming companies not afraid to flaunt their greed by taking advantage of idiots), please continue with the dull plots and mechanic clones. Otherwise, please spend more time thinking about how to integrate insightful plots and themes with more originality before releasing another counterfeit knockoff that is difficult to be distinguished from the hundreds of other Chinese games out there.

If for whatever reason American McGee has partied too hardy in China over the past few years, which I have little doubt that he has not done so, I would be glad to help continue his legacy and differentiate your Chinese-style games to American-style games. Before anyone shouts racism, let me save you the trouble and tell you that I am a Chinese American. I know both sides of the picture that is fact over belief.

Sincerely,
Rawr

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To Devs] What up with commemorative packages for WMT veterans?

RIP Synapse Games. Their recent update shows their stance: no retreat, no concessions. When players ask for less intensive guild wars, they give more intensive wars. When players ask for the removal of silvers in boxes, they bombard the store with boxes. When players want more competitive tier rewards, they make it less rewarding.

They’re begging for trouble.

Topic: Dawn of the Dragons: General / [WTF] Mathala's Sabatons

Please. What did Agamemnon do when he faced the walls of Troy? What did King Leonidas do when he faced the Persian Empire? What did Chiang Kai-shek do when he faced the Japanese Imperial Army? What did George W. Bush do when he faced the mountainous ranges of Afghanistan? They all fought with the tools they had in their disposal and attempted to conquer greater powers irrespective of the obstacles they had faced. Give us 500/400 equipment when the Goddess has 330/330 equipment and we’ll fight the Goddess with her own gifts and plunder all of her riches. This is basic human nature.

DotD is no longer a fantasy genre. It is now a science fiction genre. RIP DotD.

If the Goddess gifts such strong boots so freely that can easily overpower hers, why hasn’t anyone killed the Goddess and taken her stuff? It is inherent human nature to strive to the top, destroying anything in our way. This game is going into the sci-fi realm thinking that humans have evolved far enough to be peaceful and not greedy.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / Should the Devs let TU do a Players' Pack like WMT?

Let’s face it: what we experienced with WMT is exactly the same with the EU. The EU is a failure and a joke to all Europeans. Those who call themselves the most civilized in the world. The US government says fuck EU. I say fuck the EU, too. I say fuck community development as we are too stupid or lack the time to self-manage ourselves.

The thing with democratic politics is that the more individual minds that participate, the more anarchistic it becomes. And those factions that the controllers support will always have their voice outheard over those who the controllers do not support. Which is why we have tools such as frameworks, rules of law, universal truths, and logical reasoning.

I couldn’t possibly imagine that ladolcevita is a social saboteur working for a certain Chinese gaming company seeking to destroy its American competitors from within. Chinese executives should not be able to possess such levels of cunning. Shanghai, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and other cities where the East meets West, however, is a different story. Where the labor is cheap and the women are expensive, how low can one go?
