Tbh if they’re smart enough, they probably wouldn’t waste time on this especially against Chinese, because they don’t have any chance against ghost or if there is even a case, the best they can do is have a bit laugh, proud themselves and move on.

Doubt indie game developers have the capital to pull out a trans-Pacific lawsuit (especially in America)

do you mean taking photos of famous people from the internet and reskinning them as zombie commanders? or do you mean the Quad Walker thread where every image was obviously tangentially related to something on the internet? i don’t think either of these things could possibly be considered as ‘ripping off artwork’. maybe i missed something.

both, can even look at their older game histories and see a lot of similarities to other games. what we have here is nothing special, a chinese reskinning of a decent game.

Synapse might fire them a cease & desist but I doubt there’s enough IP in there for it to be worth a lot of lawyer time… Actually, the owners of the military equipment they’ve based the designs on might stand a better chance :-)

Why all the near-future designs in the games coming out atm? Same for GloAss, they are hela boring compared to bio-tanks with chainsaws and lasers…

Well Locojoy is a huge company, that earning millions through their games.

Locojoy game for a crack at $1.56b listing – “A Citibank report last year said some mainland game developers, including Locojoy, could earn up to 50 million yuan (HK$64 million) a month.”

that’s awesome. if synapse wins a lawsuit against these guys they will never make games ever again! (cue darkfang cheering)

reported for harassment

even searching for warmetal tyrant kong/forums or some combination like that doesn’t work anymore… either way, its proof that Devs want to forget this game ASAP

I will send this to the dev’s directly.

For those interested, here is an announcement page about it:
http://game.china.com/ios/SpecialForces/news/11160377/20140625/18585906.html (you will need to translate it unless you can read Chinese).

Here is the game’s forum:
http://bbs.locojoy.com/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=1431

The game seems to be down now though so I could not play it.

Anyway, not sure what can be done (if anything) about this, but thanks.

-Pip

Why would you alert devs to it? Its not like they don’t deserve having their game ripped off (at least in part) after their years of ripping of artwork from others.
Hope the game still gets launched (even if it is a shitty chinese knock off)

it would be nice to have one after the game is dead, since i like upvoting the good shit :D (instead of QPs) and downvoting derogatory stuff.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / some financial speculations behind synap games since WMT

Originally posted by crazyeye2011:

Although GloAss is pretty f2p friendly atm, I only started after its release, have 3.6k+ dom and currently in a top 10 guild, pvp isn’t that hard if you know how to play it properly.

Hmm… I only skimmed the UI and called it quits because it was so shit.
At least Synapse are changing their strategy to make it F2P to begin with and then start releasing shitstorms of P2W content (nexus, purity, blight hur hur)

Indeed, everyone has his/her own definition of success, and how’s your GloAss experience/progress so far?

shitty terrible considering its another strategic indie game that hasn’t really improved on any aspect apart from the P2W..

Hint: answering ‘soon’ or ‘no’ is probably faster than removing my message again.

Soon. Also: the next time you post on a different game’s forum about WMT, you will be banned from all of our games.

lol I knew there was a reason nobody mentions the original WarMetal anymore, the wrath of $ynaptic0in on the Kong gaming market is too strong for us normal players to do anything about it

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Remove WB tourneys

This would probably encourage some extra participation, but I still can’t see pack-based WB tournaments ever really taking off again, so I say remove house cut and all, or at least all before flashpoint, pack-based WB tournaments

The even better idea would be to make the 6th pack of a 6 pack tourney or the 4th pack of a 4 pack tourney free (i.e. drop the value of keeping cards in tourneys by 25%, so its more profitable for players to wait and join the newest tourney to get the bonus) than for them to just buy at their convenience.

I suspect the degree of economic integration may influence the frequency of outbreaks of war.

For example, when was the last time a EU member state engaged in hostile action in another member state’s territory? Did these regions have thousands of years of conflict previously?

I think its more because they are so close together, in some countries, people commute from one country into the other.

can we stretch serbia kosovo?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Remembrance

lets all shut our mouths for two minutes because its 96 years since the end of that war that claimed millions of lives because some guy in Europe got killed because of some political dispute by assassins which meant that every other country in Europe had to fight each other because of stupid contracts they signed with each other that meant they all had to stick up for each other to war first, ask later.

to add insult to injury, not only do all the grunts have to be conscripted and forced to fight for some guy they don’t know who died in a country who’s borders don’t even exist in the same way anymore but their contributions are milked out in the form of “war charities” that sell a plastic and paper flower that everyone must wear each anniversary in order to prove they are of the same national identity and thus support a war that essentially had no just cause (ahem ahem Middle East).

tl;dr, there is no reason short of propaganda to turn the war machine why WWI deaths are so heavily linked to freedom and “fighting to make choices for bla bla”, everyone was the same, all the demonisation was in the heads of the governments, only the winners get nice remembrances and therefore the losers are either in cenotaphs, war criminals or lost in between.
