You can join a syndicate that does not join in those kind of Syndicate Wars. Strangely enough there is another kind of Syndicate War that has the same name, but is quite different. There the syndicate as a whole has health and you can attack other syndicates or heal your own. The attacks there aren’t real attacks, so they don’t cost you health or kill you.

Topic: Tyrant / Automatic deck optimization

This is what I ran:

tyrant_optimize.exe “T0-EDLh-CtLh+i-ED-AM-ED-AM-ED” “Epic Blightbloom” -r sim 1000000 -t 2

The deck is the top deck on the raid page: http://tyrant.40in.net/kg/raid.php?id=23#sdecks:did=24489

Topic: Tyrant / Automatic deck optimization

Thanks, I was waiting for someone who was willing to do this.

Edit: hmm, not getting the expected results for my Epic Blightbloom deck. For 2 separate 1M sim runs I get 247.487 and 247.485 ARD. Simtyrant gives 248.7123 ARD.

You need to wait for an updated version to come out and then download it. It’s not a bug in the data files.

The real problem with posting accusation threads is it distracts people from the appropriate and ineffective means of reporting abuse – filing reports, contacting devs etc.

Fixed that for you.

Thanks for all the hard work. The game is truly dying when the support tools are no longer maintained. I hope sss1 doesn’t stop too.

Simming that on 1mil, I’m getting 247.5 ard, and I’m getting marginally better results with order: MT, RO, Primus, RO, MT, RO, TCB, MT, MT, TCB

Did you sim with simtyrant or the optimizer? Simtyrant consistently gives better results, which seems to be due to the known bug in the optimizer. So I would trust the simtyrant results only.

Yes. Unfortunately you can now see the result for the new raid. The simtyrant results are consistently higher than the optimizer results. Is anyone interested in taking over?

Topic: Tyrant / [Dev] Status update - March 7th

Originally posted by Carduus:

What’s the most appropriate way to take the announcement that there won’t be any more UI improvements on WM:T, and new content will all be rehashes of old content? That we’re a perfectly polished product? Or that WM:T is on a downward trajectory?

It’s clearly not perfectly polished.

Best case: The devs select a bunch of smart players and have them develop and balance a new pack. Then the devs create new art work and use that for both TU and WMT, so it’s a win-win for them (relatively little WMT-specific dev work, but much happiness here for a while). Putting some dev work in the hands of those players will also re-energize this forum, since we’ll actually have something fun to argue about. This game has always been at its best when players got involved and felt empowered to improve things.

Worst case: Token effort until we all get fed up and leave. Events, more events, no fun tourney thing, event, event, event, event, event, dead.

Likely case: Some events, Flashpoint for 10 shards, a small gold reduction for existing packs, more packs for tokens, some boring tourney stuff. Devs go silent again.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / Devs only post on tyrant forums to squeeze money from us, soon they won't care about you

Originally posted by nis_stalker:

Take it easy, man, we all understand TU is a milk cow…who cares if we enjoy gameplay (GW and events)?

Do you really think you are the smartest here and just opened our eyes? :-)

That is what the TU devs are currently doing, but in WMT you see a different side of the devs when they get bored with a game and the income goes down. Then they start lying and almost stop communicating. This hasn’t happened for TU yet, so you can only learn this by listening to WMT players. So perhaps the topic starter opened some eyes.

Of course, you may not care anyway, but I don’t see anything wrong with telling TU players about the experience of players of a related game which is later in its life cycle (probably near death).

Anyways, I think they need to go where they feel like they will get attention and action. Like exerting pressure on politicians.

There is also the fact that the last statement about the future of WMT was made on the TU forum, rather than on the WMT forum. So it’s not surprising that people go where they think there is the highest chance of a response.

Ah thank you for addressing the points you disagree with. I could be convinced the devs are squeezing money out of people only I don’t see it myself. Perhaps our definitions are different? I have always given them money voluntarily and this is true for players, as I doubt kong is hiring thugs to coerce money out of players.

I think your definition is way too limited. I consider it squeezing when a game requires you to pay to be competitive. Clearly then there is pressure on players, which is pretty much the definition of the word squeeze (putting pressure on something to extract its contents). This can range from very mild squeezing to very extreme levels. TU is pretty high on the scale IMO. There is also the issue that the devs used the classic drugdealer spiel with the fusions of fusions change. Hooking people on the game and then suddenly increasing the price to be competitive. That is a classic squeeze play (see poker).

People are different of course and the level of squeezing that is acceptable to you may be unacceptable to other people. Fair enough. But I do think that (new) players should honestly be told that there is strong pressure on players to pay.
