Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To Devs] Gold boost considerations

So according to the recently posted December Roadmap, instead of a GW, where the vast majority of players get several packs and lots of gold per battle, we will get a gold boost.

Devs, you better make this gold boost far higher than just a double multiplier, or else we will be losing out a LOT on this deal.

Here’s some math:

GW
~1.6 gold per 1 minute from mission energy (more actually, when 3 starring event missions, but let’s use mission 106 as a base, since there are also players that aren’t that far)
+ ~100 gold every 15 minutes from generating 1 GW attack (usually more, because the vast majority of people experience better winrates than 50% in their GW battles)
= ~496 gold per hour*
*PvP remains the same so is irrelevant to these calculations

+ SP from GW rewards, which can be anywhere between ~240 and ~100 (unless really, really low ranked)

Double mission gold
~3.2 gold per minute
= ~192 gold per hour*
*PvP remains the same so is irrelevant to these calculations

No SP from additional cards, other than the a single copy of the odd old event epic or legendary from the new side-missions, which doesn’t even belong to the weekend event anyway.

In order to achieve a comparable gold amount from GW, the gold multiplier must be as follows:

496 (gold/hour from GW) divided by 60 (minutes) = 8.26~
8.26 divided by 1.6 (vanilla gold/minute) = 5,16~

So in order to achieve the same gold per hour, the multiplier would have to be over 5x using very lowball estimations AND we would still be missing out on the SP from GW reward cards.

Just something to keep in mind devs, and community, please don’t let the devs blow smoke up your asses with shiny promises like double or triple gold, when in reality that would just mean we’d be losing out on a lot.

Tested and indeed it is not working as enhance, it is simple enfeeble all 2 every turn.

Congrats on yet another fuck-up.

You mean the roadmap that addresses absolutely 0 of the issues people are complaining about?

Nice red herring…

wait he DOES mention people being stuck. Just doesnt say anything about directly rectifying it. Daily quests MIGHT help but really im getting such little amounts of scrap im upgrading one low level thing every few days. i cant upgrade my 4*s. No way can i get more than 60 scrap

Seeing how they designed and balanced the daily quest in TU, do you really expect these future daily quests here to be more than the minor insignificant boost they are in TU?

Wow, not a single word regarding the silly vicious SP/PvP cycle you created even for top-end players.

Or any of the basic features that have been asked to be implemented since early beta, for that matter (salvage all, skip battle function, etc.). Not that those would have changed my mind about this update, but really shows how completely out of touch you are with your own community/beta testers.

Way to bury your head in the dirt and wait for the shitstorm to pass.

Guess I should have seen it coming, when you nerfed f2p strike all and then immediately released a crate with a p2w strike all unit that is far more powerful than the nerfed units were pre-nerf (way to shoot your own alleged reason for the nerf in the foot, btw). Classy move, as always.

Congratulations, you just convinced me to quit the game.

Really? What did you lose that was going to be worth more than 80 SP? Pride at getting a spot or two higher? I can see how it is possible that this could impact a guild or two to the tune of 80 SP/player, but “fair compensation” would be to those guilds impacted. The entire playerbase didn’t lose that.


EDIT: hosed the quote. patched it, proabably not correctly :)

At first glance, you would be correct.

Yes the last minute maintenance only cost my guild a top 20 spot, so instead of blisandro getting 80 SP could be perceived as fair compensation in that light.

But when you look at the larger scope, what we have is:

1) War start was a disaster. But fair enough, we got 80 SP compensation and the war end is what really matters.
2) Delay between attacks. This coupled with the war start troubles, and an already poor selection of reward cards has left many players distraught with this war (in my guild at least), not really willing to put much effort in it, costing us further ranks (I’ll admit I was one such player).
3) A second blunder at the end, which is THE most important part of the war as it all leads up to that point, especially for higher ranked guilds where reward brackets are tighter. It ended up costing my guild a position in top20, players’ morale has been even further dilapidated and several are even considering quitting/taking a break from the game now.

So no, an extra 80 SP is pretty far from being proper compensation for this.

Be open, as much as there may be some backlash in case you did something the community perceives as dumb, it will be far less damaging than the reputation/income loss you are incurring and will incur in the future from this.

We have been completely transparent with you. Once we know more, we’ll let you know.

No, we have not downgraded servers. As mentioned before, we have both scaled out (more servers) and up (bigger servers).

Fair enough, in that case all frustration and jokes aside, I do understand that you guys yourselves may not be to blame for this.

But fair compensation for this will be needed, and another 80 SP wont be enough.

Also, please don’t let the explanation for this end up sliding into oblivion, I for one am mighty curious to hear it, once you guys have more data on the issue.

I strongly suggest being open about it, because as much as there may be some backlash in case you did something the community perceives as dumb, it will be far less damaging than the reputation/income loss you are incurring and will incur in the future from this blunder and being secretive about it.

Perfect timing, right in the last few minutes of the last war of most guilds!

Probably going to lose our shot at top 20 because of this, but hey, these rewards are a pile of trash anyway!

Bots can be programmed to deal with such delays, regardless.

Don’t punish all the players because of some rotten apples, either punish the botters themselves or make it so botting doesn’t give them an advantage.

Man, this community gets their priorities backwards a lot.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [TO DEVS] DAILY QUESTS TIME 22H

Because the new quests only show up after the current 24hours has expired AND you refresh the game. So any time that went by between the 24 hour timer expiring and refreshing is actually lost, meaning it takes mroe then 24 hours for new quests to appear.

Considering it is pretty frequent that people forget when they last refreshed to update their quests the preevious day, it is not uncommon to have several hours lost for refreshing every day.

The quests should update automatically every 24 hours, not require a refresh to show up.

But hey, #teamgetmoney always has to find ways to shorthand the player.

Topic: Global Assault / (To Devs/Community) How do i continue to play?

I’m on the same boat, and I am a member of the top guild in the game.

I’m pretty close to salvaging all my units and leaving, too.

Currently only checking in every now and then for generator money, not even bothering with pvp anymore because it is always a loss now that my squad has been nerfed into shit, stuck on PvE because I can’t improve my squad, because I can’t get good units from supply drops and fusing 5 stars from the bottom is pointless since all f2p units now are trash.

The current crate offer in the store just adds insult to injury.

Bottomline: I don’t get SP, I don’t get new units, and I barely get any silver; my only hope is a lucky good 4* or 5* drop from the very few supply drops I can buy with the little silver I get from generator (thanks for nerfing that, too).

If devs had two braincells to rub together they should be pretty fucking worried when the state of the game is such even for a top guild (paying) player.

Topic: Global Assault / Have the devs mentioned anything about the possibility of gameplay improvements?

Nope, expect new nerfs with every update.

That has been the norm for the past ~4 months.

They did “boost” a few things, like upgrade/research times too, but those were solely to either very slightly mitigate the nerfs, or actually compound the effects of the nerf.

Those things you speak of have been asked since the beggining of the beta (at least the skip function), even before I joined and devs don’t lift a finger.

If anything I actually expect them to nerf those aspects to become even more obnoxious.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [Dev] Server issues

Help me understand: how is it possible that a game, which is basically a glorified calculator that only requires very minimal information traffic between host and client, can lag when there’s a few hundred people using it simultaneously?

If this was a game with actual sophisticated information being exchanged I could understand, but this is borderline comical.
