PS – Being the first person to add Hurricane to the TI deck was another favorite personal moment. Mayumi*: Hurricane, Tactical infiltrator* x 2, Hornet Drones* x 2, Lauch Codes, Enrichment Vial.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] WMT Update [Tyrant ending on August 15th 2015]

After 3.3 years of the support and neglect cycle, its finally nice to have certainty.

To synapticon, you have some loose ends to wrap up before regaining at least 1 ounce of respect/admiration after my post here 2 days ago on page 2: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/420456-devs-will-speak?page=2

I’ve loved this game, thats the passion you feel from my words.

However, if you are shutting the game down and if you are an entity of integrity; you MUST disable all Warbond purchase ASAP. I’ve been with the game since May 2011 and we both know you have milked enough $ out of us. Don’t allow ignorant people to make purchases after you JUST announced shutting the game down. “Will disable 1 month before shutdown” you say? Still looking to milk and mislead us again huh? All the way to the bitter end?! Really?? That is blatantly dishonest and greedy.

In your defense Synapticon, a game is a business. We ought not be under ANY illusions that ANY game will last forever. All of the addicted personalites will either have to move on to find another addiction, OR come to the realization that the purpose of their life is to give, add to, be a blessing to others lives. (Mark 10:45)

Interesting you say you want TU to last a decade. While I dont know the financials of WMT on your side and why you dusted it for TU, there are a couple facts you should think about in your future business endeavors:

1. You could have had WMT around for a decade, but you chased away many players with your lack of presence and support for the community – so you lost both $ and players there. From playing MTG I’ve learned that an SCG is only as good as it’s relationship between the player base and the developers. I no longer play MTG since I became addicted to it.

2. From above, you severely hurt your reputation. (Proverbs 22)

3. Integrity: speak it and then do it, and let whatever it is be a win-win for both you and your player base.

4. Consistency: People have to know they can depend on you and at all times you have their best interest in mind. Regular periodical events, upgrades, promos, packs, etc. Not just whenever you feel like it or when the money stops rolling in. That is horribly selfish; you’ll eventually have to give an account for how you treated all of us in WMT.

5. To the players: You gotta know games are a business. Don’t spend any $ you can’t afford to lose.

I guess that’s the end then. It’s been bittersweet. Never seen an SCG concept like WMT before. Thanks for the memories.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / How long have you played Tyrant?

I’ve been playing since May 2011. Ive enjoyed a lot of really close wars and good competitors. Ive met a lot of really cool people, some ive known for a long time. Winning Apollo and Hades were pretty awesome achievements; getting 1st place out of 100 people is SO difficult! Even though neither of them have proven very useful; i remember it was almost a miracle for both luck and skill to come together to get 1st place – Twice! It was an exciting time when ESOK first came out too and the community had to band together on google docs and actually schedule raids for them to be successful! (Go go ghetto gauntlets 4tw! lol) I probably had the most fun when the game was in the middle of the Sycophant fear meta and it was starting to go stale due to a new expansion with higher hp commanders and maybe refresh units. I innovated and threw in a Hazard Bolter i got from Terminus and gave my Syco build some longevity. I dabbled with throwing in my Acid Athenor too. It was a neat, personal moment to have seen the blitz/crush and then to find out it actually worked! Good times.

shadowhopeful: Are you simply going to pretend WMT doesn’t exist then? I can appreciate the effort you put into TU, you get far more money, but you’re not doing your reputation any favours.
-
synapticon: I can give WMT an update post at the end of the week. However, continued posting on here about WMT until then will be treated as harassment of our players, especially with this coming off as spam in the middle of a thread where we are actively trying to help the community.

-

Shankapottomus: Props to oematoema and shadowhopeful for asserting themselves on behalf of the WMT community. We all thank you. We are all sick and tired of being ignored and thrown lame bones now and then to shut us up. If you truly care about the communities you have created, then dont ignore WMT because TU makes you more money.

Give WMT some real new content. NEW: Missions, packs, rewards, achievements, skills, promos, etc… A for REAL upgrade, not some parlor trick. Being a responsible developer is helping the community you created previous to TU. After all, if it werent for WMT, you would not have so many TU fans and patrons.

And if it is the money you truly care about, then say that too and announce the shut down of WMT. We will be able to accept the truth, whatever it is… But please don’t act like you are so into helping communities, lest the TU community you have now created suffer in the future as the WMT community has been for many months; abandoned, rotting away, and discouraged with no hope for a future. You have done this many times to WMT. If you were truly sorry you would not repeat the mistake. You would help and be loyal and responsible to the WMT community you created.

If and/or when you make a decision on where your loyalty lies, please let us know, so we can respect it and move on. It would, however, be nice to see a commitment with some follow through. Leaving people hanging in ignorance is and always has been a cruel thing to do.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / BUG: cards stuck in decklists

Wow I can’t believe i finally fixed it! The instructions are not very clear to follow, but here’s what I did and it worked.

1) put 1 copy of the problem card in each of your different decks.

2) as i placed the last copy of the problem card (remember 1 card per deck), it automatically fixed itself.

lol wow its been such a long time! finally got all my decks back!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Suggestions

I suggest an idea to improve conquest defense and leadership for any given faction. As an officer or leader, it would be imperatively helpful to be able to see what build is on any given slot of a tile my faction owns. It would be helpful to have access to the biggest picture possible concerning the status of my faction in order to make leadership decisions and also help fellow faction members. I hope to see this implemented in the near future. Hopefully it is not a programming nightmare and relatively easy for you guys. Thank you for your consideration!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Tournament S4] Heart of Corruption Win

Kazzerot wins easily. Flying hard to hit. More useful. Less expensive. Summon/Serak strike has the power to win with just the 1 card. Orbo the Wrathful was a good and bad joke at the same time. I bet people who paid out the nose for him regret it.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] Universal Shard proposal

Just popping in to add my 2 cents that something with the shard system has to change. 3 different shards and 1 daily chance would mean that free packs are so few and far between it would be a ridiculous amount of time before we would ever get 10 to make a pack. It’s hard enough already at 2 different shards.

If not a universal shard (btw that wouldnt help the returning veterans like me catch up), maybe do a universal for awakening/terminus and then a separate for Occupation. That way the shards are still 2 max on the daily chance.

Thanks for listening.
