Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Where to put energy first?

Originally posted by kartis:

Hehe. Overview needs a little button by each prompt so we can turn the @#$% things off if it pleases us. I, for one, and sick of looking at “New Card Upgrades are available” and my dismal treasury.

That is a little OT, but so true. It is idiotic how overview is flooded with “news” to the point were it is compeltely useless, and at the same time you have a permanent message riveted to the damn screen that will “inform” you that it is possible to upgrade cards (that is exactly what it means, it means “hey, in this game, you can upgrade cards d’uh”, since nobody has upgraded all cards or would want to do that, so the message will never inform you of a new opportunity to do so). That info should be there for new players the first three times they get an upgradeable card, and then vanish forever. Also, overview fails to update, just as the faction war screen fails to update, so you have to go check faction wars and refresh anyway.

But when it comes to bad interface, tourneys really take the cake (just to stray even further from the uninspiring and long solved topic).
The fact that I have to choose a specific sub-folder (current war) first and then go back in a counter-intuitive way in order to reach a more general folder (tourneys) and check rewards is the worst choice of organizing an interface I have ever seen in a computer game.
I’ve gotten used to it of course, but it is just mindblowing how random some aspects of tyrant are executed, and how this has never been fixed.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Speedy Hive is not fun

The Sidoze/Concussive Guards Deck worked on first try for me, I was just lucky.
But following the logic of most Tyrant players, I have thereby proven the sim’s percentage wrong, because I won 100%.
The size of the sample does not seem to play a big role for most people :-)

The great thing is that with that deck, bad draws are impossible, and you still win if your first guard gets jammed once.
If you lack Vial, you may as well wait till you have it. There is no reward for it anyway.
If anything, it gives you much less gold per stam than the usual mission grinding, that is all.
So no reason to panic.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [To Veterans] Do Any of You Remember Your First Faction

I don’t know if I count as a veteran, but yeah.
My first faction was Strawhat (we were real bobs), then Lightbringers (very nice faction, Egalisator is a very fair leader and I learnt a lot there, it was hard to leave at all). I still remember RT slowroll with Elemental being the bomb back then ^^.
Kinda followed Kagrunz to Brags Only and been there for quite some time now (also very enjoyable bunch).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [DEV] Worldship Pack 3 Announcement

Moraku’s got a point, the relationship between artwork and skills in this game is…peculiar.
I sometimes wonder how the devs decide these things…I imagine there is a psychologist sitting in a white room with a kid.
The shrink hands the kids cards to test its sanity, and the kid is supposed to tell the shrink what the things on the cards do

Exhibit a: it has wings and is depicted above the clouds.
Shrink: Can it fly?
Kid: NO!
Shrink: But…but…it has wings

exhibit b: it has a huge flak mounted on top
Shrink: Can it shoot planes?
Kid: NO!

exhibit c: a giant metal tank
Shrink: how many hitpoints?
Kid: 1!
Shrink: but…

exhibit d: It has two mechanical legs.
Shrink: what does it do?
Kid: IT FLIES! *eats the card, starts to salivate and bangs head on table
Shrink: *sigh

To the Moderators

We all have troubles in our lives, and most of us have a support network to help us through difficult times. One of the reasons my life is bizarre is that the group of people who have been the most important part of my support network have not been my family or my offline friends (some have been great, however). As a group, the most support, sympathy, and empathy I have received has come from the Tyrant community. I know it’s weird to say that the Tyrant community is sympathetic and empathetic rather than trollish and pathetic, but it is true—some of my closest friends now are people I met through Tyrant but that I have not met in person.

You are too old to think this way.

I’m relatively close to your age, assuming your profile age is correct, and while i will never be accused on this game of being mature, I at least still have my sanity in tact.

People you only SOLELY know through the internet aren’t your friends. To think any other way is completely lololo0oollolbawwhahahaha.

I think you are just close-minded.
Some of my best friends are Internet-friends.
I’ve travelled and visited many of them by now, but they were real friends many years before that, already.
When a relative died and you cannot deal with life, who is up late at night? Your friends from another timezone.
I’ve got friends in the US who took it on them to distribute my band’s album in the whole country FOR FREE, copy by copy.
There are so many ways in which we’ve helped each other across the Ocean now, you wouldn’t believe it.
I travelled all over Britain and Ireland for free, staying with people I’d never met before but knew very well over the Internet.
The main point is of course communication, and it works fine on the net with the right people.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Card names

Originally posted by Darkninjalucian:

Neither does BoD…how does a bridge protect everyone?

I think the Bridge is absolutely OK. with a bit of imagination, it might be a mythical place for the protoss-like Righteous, offering magical protection, why not? And, belonging half to some kind of other dimension, it might be sort of ethereal and thus have the capacity to regain substance and dodge final blows. It’s actually a pretty nice combination of name, artwork and skills, I personally think.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Card names

It just occurred to me what a chance the devs missed with hydra.
The serpentine monster from Greek mythology truly has summon on attacked!
Hack off one head, two grow back. Had the devs not used that name for a card with completely unrelated skills, it would have been the perfect name for a summon on attacked card.
If I had to create a hydra, it would have strike all (because of nine heads) and summon 2 hydra’s heads on attacked.

I think the game would be better with coherent naming and skills and fitting artworks (like, if it has wings and is depicted flying above the clouds, it probably should have flying as a skill…)
Can anyone think of other names/creatures that would fit perfectly with a set of skills?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / New level requirements for crafting cards REVELAVED [sic]

The level requirements are a very good step (but should have been the same right from the beginning to avoid irritation).
A card that is too easy to get loses worth rapidly, and there was never much reward for reaching a high level.
Just look at Solar Powerhouse, it’s a joke of a card for level 150. People get it for bragging purposes exclusively lol.
Heracles is still strong but nowhere near as strong as he was when he came out. Still a worthy reward for reaching level 100.

What we really need are some actually strong cards for levels 120, 150, 170, 200

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] Why are packs rigged?

This says nothing about probability, but I got two Yurich in a row (a total of three in that lot of 10 packs or so), and once the EXACT SAME content, card for card, in two packs in direct succession, when pressing ‘buy again’ several times. I think that is a pretty extreme case. I did purchase a lot of Nexus packs during the last days though, like everyone else.

You seem to emphasize the word gold a lot. Do you happen to be a dwarf or a leprechaun?

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [WarMetal Tyrant] [To Devs] Increase max chars for deck name and expand drop down menu

The drop down menu is an abomination.
Despite a fast connection, Tyrant often lags for me.
When that happens, the drop down menu REALLY gets annoying.
So yeah, please do soemthing about the interface.

Another thing is the way you reach the main menu for tournaments.
I guess I don’t even have to explain :-)
