that is just another example of the attitude i mean. (or did i actually push your button? coughs)

from your answer it seems at least i was correct reading that you posted that somewhere.

Why would I give you a civil answer to what was a derogatory rhetorical question? You went to smash it out the park. You missed and made an ass of yourself at the same time as demonstrating that you are far more interested in getting your shot in at me than you are at reading the content first. It would serve you well to read the OP again.

Don’t pretend it was a question. Take the medicine.

alright mate you win.
i unpushed the button you pushed… :)
enjoy!

Ha, I’ll go with most of that, fair cop. My sentiment is actually consistent though. I guess I just feel that there is so much pointless chattering and shite from the aggrieved, that I don’t really feel there’s any harm in taking the opposition seat.

I mean if nobody took that stance, then the forums would just be recruitment threads and whining ineffectually to Devs that will do whatever they were going to do anyway.

And hey, let’s not forget. It’s just a game. Probably won’t even be here in a couple of years.

You might not think there’s harm when you essentially say that people that spend money on this game that can’t afford to burn it are retarded, but you’re wrong. And I think you know you’re wrong, too. So either you’re contradicting yourself indirectly, or you really do like shaming people. And I’m principled (probably to my detriment at times) in such a way that I feel compelled to encourage people like you to own up to their motivations.

And I disagree that this is “just a game”. What you and I are doing right now is not just a game. We’re 2 people really communicating in real life. There may be an nigh-anonymous proxy, but this isn’t a simulation. This forum is a byproduct of the game, but it’s not intrinsically linked to it. This is a community of real people, and what you say has a real effect on people. I just don’t like it when the intention of that effect is to make people feel like crap.

Well you’re going to have to entertain the idea that actually, to me, this IS just a game. Including the forums. Forums are just, as you say, an extension of the game. They hold no real value. The Devs use them for testing. We use them to recruit, bitch and whine, celebrate and congratulate. I’m afraid I do not consider this dialogue as “real life.” My dinner will be ready in a few minutes, I will turn my phone off and you will cease to exist to me. I think you are possibly over sensitive to be candid.

I think it would be convenient for you if there was some ulterior motive. Some inexplicable urge to make people feel bad. Some sociopathic desire to get off from schadenfreude. But what you’re coming up against is apathy.

But really, it’s just a forum mate. This game is a very slow one. The forums pass time. You may just have to accept that in all honesty, how you “feel” is really not that high up my list of priorities.

Sorry. I salute your principles and morals. In real life, I am actually equally principled, often to my own detriment. But this just isn’t real life. It’s a game. And that is EXCACTLY my point in the OP. A little self reflection. If you’re emotionally fragile enough to be offended in the forum of a phone game, then you should heavily reconsider your presence online.

damn son. you might not be offended but you damn sure are touched enough to put down a wall of text like this… and you tell others to self reflect? ksure!
and btw, didn’t people offend you enough somewhere that you thought it necessary to tell us that you’re a phd graduate? and yet youi’re still trying to say this is completely different from real life?
cut it out already. please man

I wasn’t whining in the OP. Where was the whining? It was meant to be helpful. I personally LOVE the whining. Nothing says ‘winner’ like the distressed cries of the less fortunate. It’s capitalism at it’s finest.

the whining was when reading between the lines. as i said, you did well in how you put it in you first post. that was 1 post. after that, you didn’t manage at all anymore. sorry bout that.
meant to be helpful? oh sure. i have no reason at all to doubt you there…

since you said ‘the rest of you’ i feel spoken to because i have a post in this topic too.
my only complaint was basically that you put [to whiners] in the title and then make a post that is basicly a complaint.
yes, you did quite well in how you put it, yet still…
pot/kettle… stuff like that

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / Rankings for the top 20 free players

i have spent exactly 0,- euro, yes frozensolid, it’s possible.
i was tempted to buy the cheap pack when it came out. when i was going to buy teh pack google wanted my phone number, so that was the end of that story.
afterwards i learned that the packs are not that attractive after all. they’re only good if you are looking for a 4th card to make a quad. actually the pack only buys you time. (i think terraformer was the only card in that pack that’s not in the base pack, correct me if i’m wrong).

my deck is:

barracus, spiteful raptor, ayrkrane vik, tazerecca, crushing anvil, xeno suzerain, auger bore, blitz plate

yes i am still running blitz plate. i still like it… :)

There is a study in the business field that searches for the optimal profit. It’s a point in between your sales and your price. That means how much should I price my product to obtain the highest amount of sales. Those guys are definitely pricing those cards to high. If it was more affordable they would make less money per transaction, however they would have way more players buying cards. Those guys are pricing way to high and loosing a lot of potential customers. How would people even start getting addicted to spending money in the game if so many would not buy their first card because of the high cost.

that study most likely doesn’t apply to online games then.
because kongregates own research (you could try googling emily greer presentations) shows some different numbers. only a small part (about 5%) of the player base are whales. however these whales make about 65% of the total income for the devs. whales are people who make an emotional decision. they want to win. they are going to buy anyway. doesn’t really matter if the cards cost $10,- or $100,-. the price difference will only hold off a few whales. if you balance the game more towards moderate or low spenders, you’re simply gonna make less money.
don’t believe me?
check the data. there’s a presentation out there where kongregate actually states that TU makes the devs twice as much money per player as WMT. and those who played WMT know how that game had a much better chance for a free player to compete.
also, since TU is on mobile, it probably has a much larger player base already. the lesson to be learned here is that the devs are doing it correct. this is their job and they have to make money with it.
then there is the lack of communication from their side on this subject. that just completely makes sense. if they started to communicate about it and were honest about it, they would get to the point where they had to admit that they don’t care too much about free players and moderate spenders. sure they want us to have fun but at the end of the day 99% of what matters is the whales. best to avoid saying that out loud cause that will actually cost you players.

it’s funny how we (yes, me too) complain here in the forum but we don’t leave the game. eyes wide shut i guess. typical addict behaviour. addict? yes, addict.
kongregate calls people who play a game over 50 times (total) an addict. they don’t even hide it behind a name like ‘hardcore gamer’ or something like that…

i believe the a-b testing i heard about was not about changing drop rates after your first purchase (though grabarz suggested that). it’s the other way around. make 2 (or more) groups with different drop rates, and then check if that has influence on sales.

concerning the difference between free and payed players:

i think most complaints are about the size of the gap between the 2, not the gap itself (like digimortalgod said, it’s gonna be there and it should be there).

concerning the epic drop rates:

as well as in WMT the game feels like something is off with the droprates. some cards you will pull more of, others you won’t pull any… yes, i am looking at my darkondestroyer collection laughing at odin… remember that one?

and what really bothers me is the rumours about a-b testing. giving different accounts different draw percentages and then research what works best for selling.
i’ve got a guild mate drawing 22 legends in 3 months and i pull 3 in 6 months. hell i have no proof of this but it damn sure starts to feel like something is wrong here…
that would be 44 legends against 3 legends over the same time spa…

oh crap, now i’m still going into it…. :(

digimortalgod, demanufacture is a cooler album!
bunky luv luv, you make me wanna watch the wire! i cannot look at “the bunk” and not call him bunky luv luv in my mind anymore! :)

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / DT VS OL

on topic: awesome battle!

off topic:
to me this game is about the social part. the game itself is just a grindfest. without my fellow bairs, our forum and our line group i would be having a lot less fun.
i find it very sad to see you guys pointing fingers at each other on an issue where the devs are to blame.
i’m trying to imagine thinking about this before it happened.
“hey i’m gonna send the devs a mail asking to ‘get back’ a card i never had.”
truely i could not have imagined that something like that would have worked out. the devs built the game, it’s their responsibility to have it working properly…

anyways, you guys should really not be pointing fingers at each other in a social game like this.
if you paid 3 normal peoples month wages on your OP deck and someone else got the same deck with less cost, DAMN SURE that should piss you off. but blaming that other guy? come on. devs made that possible and that other guy used the possibility.

rbwabd is winning in his dreams now so i’ll do an attempt to continue.
prepare for inferior writing style…. :(

wingedmigration ended 21k to 268 points… they must have migrated icarus style or something alike. on to the next one…

23:20 Diretide

or Die-retide… short summary of the current war:
bolt crag 1: 22 damage. bolt crag 2: 19 damage, bolt crag 3: 13 damage. that about sums it up. back to picking our noses (it’s a secret bair tactic to charm the enemy into not destroying our structures) till next one.
with 7 minutes on the clock score is 9.5k to 1.7k. 1 siege structure destroyed and 1 defense brought down to 40%. some rebel bairs grabbed their keys and scratched the paint on 1 of their siege structures.

ranked 38 now and goin into the next one:

00:32 underdogs
underdogs livin up to their name. 7k to 200 points after 12 minutes. looks like a win so far. at first we think play safe and take out 1 siege structure but it looks like they’re not a threat rather quickly and we decide to go straight for the core.

01:40 covert
we meet covert again. this time they’re prepared, seemingly full with stamina and out for bairblood. they take down one of our sieges before we manage to do one of theirs. battle seems done by then. 25 minutes in and we’re 4k points behind.
payback is a bai……….itch

02:50 (or something close to that) army of pain
easy war. with 25 minutes to go we’re leading by 9k points. time to chill.
