There was a P-rexy named Holfti,
Many thought she was a softy,
Since I’d get infamy
She refused to make me,
An officer since it’s too lofty.

A prexy in P. rex called Mike,
Can’t seem to operate a bike,
He hates all editions,
Of major religions,
It’s hard to find things that he’d like.

To learn more about Mike, or to teach him to ride a bike, or to find out things he likes, or to debate the value of religion with him, join P. rex today!

There once was a prexy named Pip,
Most of us thought he was hip,
Although he left us,
He’ll return, so we trust,
And when he does, I will backflip!

Join to make P. rex more active, so Pip will come back and never leave again.

Old school poem:

La’vita’s a girl in my faction,
Her hard work has given us traction,
She tries to make bets,
But compared to my nets,
She only achieves a small fraction.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [REFERENDUM] Vote "How to organize the Players' Pack"

Originally posted by yeasy:

Bump. Let’s get this going ASAP.
Majority is still supporting option 2.

Please try not to be misleading. “Majority” in this instance means less than the majority of one full faction.

Aside from that: the reason this thread is flawed is because it is employing a complete democracy to vote for a complete democracy. This shouldn’t be a vote, it should be a debate. People should argue why they think every average joe being responsible for a new pack will be better than a select few who actually know how deeper mechanics, strategy, and balance work. As much as it may pain the “majority” of people voting here to know this, most of you should not be responsible for this pack if you want it to be a success, because you don’t know what you’re talking about.

Want an example? Look at the thread creator. A couple of months ago, I made a thread asking about good mono-imperial decks, and he REFUSED to grasp the concept that mayumi could be used in one of those decks for about a week. A WEEK! People explained, I changed the topic of the title to make it more clear, and he still bickered for pages with practically everyone in the entire thread. Would you really want someone like this to be responsible, even in the smallest bit, for determining what should be the best pack we have received since nexus (based on the fact that the people making the cards would actually know more about balance and strategy than the devs). Yeasy is just one example, but there are legions of people in this game who just won’t understand how to do this.

This isn’t a “card creator” contest. Those are for entertainment. This is a new pack that is supposed to supplement the game, add a new layer of strategy, and be usable without overpowering the entire meta. Most people don’t know how to do that, which is why they shouldn’t be responsible for it, much less organizing the damn thing.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / LET's ALL GO TO ANOTHER CCG

Despite Ralkk’s expressive language, I think she makes a good point. While it’s good to have community-wide input to a small degree, in order to maintain some kind of order and consistency, it really would be nice if you could officially appoint someone to organize it.

Given that this was Ralkk’s idea originally a few months ago, her history with working with you guys in the past, and seemingly community-wide support, I’m not sure that there’s a better option for that than her.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / What is the strongest faction ever?

Originally posted by TheGil:

wow this again…
lets say this one thing about this argue, hoping it will make the end of it for ever.
every player that vote for a faction got feeling to that faction. not objective,
if i say gw are the strongest, while i am in gw, my opinion is not objective .
if sean choose bw as the strongest, he is in bw and his opinion isnt objective.
same goes for every player that was involved in one of those factions. opinion isnt objective.
every player that want to say something in this topic most likly got something with the faction he choosed.
the only players that are completly not connected to any of the factions that their opinion will be objective (and i am not talking about alts use) dont want to vote in this topic cause they doesnt care.

so you can take this argument forever, or end this and accept the fact you will never get an answer.
also if it helps, the best answer to what is the strongest faction ever:
GILIANS

This wasn’t really meant to determine one definitive answer, and I thought I did a pretty decent job of explaining that people can be as objective as they want to be while placing any arbitrary standards they want to set. It’s just a discussion of what people think are the strongest factions, why they think that, and why they might agree/disagree with someone else’s logic.

For instance, if you think “We Love Cerealguy” is the strongest faction ever due to having an entertaining name, you’re welcome to think that.

Men of Mayhem over BO/CO – Longevity wins here. MoM hasn’t ever really been as dominant as BO/CO was in my opinion, but they’ve definitely been more sturdy over a MUCH longer period of time, and they haven’t had to rely on a plethora of Pescado factions to maintain the top spot unlike BO. Also, they’ve never been catfaced, which seals it for me.

Nirav is right, longevity is the winner so BW wins for being #1 the longest. Also they have never been catfaced since they held the #1 spot. Thanks.

Who would win that?

Covert Ops. By well over a mile.

+1

I wouldn’t say that MoM was that far behind CO in that regard. CO obviously takes the edge, since there was exactly 1 other faction full of people in the game that liked them, but MoM was terrorized for years in this forum and in the game; they were just lucky to have Lyko’s anti-trolling guide to keep them relatively respectable.

My own view on strongest faction ever? LoA.

I’m pretty sure you’re not referring to the original LoA, but I’ll use the opportunity to express that I think they are criminally underrated. If I remember right, right before they merged with MoM to take on BO, they merged with Goons and became an absolute force. I believe this was around when surge first became a thing, and most factions struggled like crazy. LoA excelled, and it shot them up the ranking.

During that period, a few of them would come by the P. rex chat and shoot the breeze with us. They seemed like a cool group of people who didn’t take wars personally. They might not be the strongest faction ever, but they deserve more mention than they receive. Their lack of mention is probably due to the fact that LoA2 shared the same name and was so much stronger.

None of this has anything to do with this thread. My comment about cheating factions was a subpoint of a subpoint, where I said that I didn’t care who cheated. Once again, if you want to discuss cheating any further, make another thread where it is the main subject.

Mods, I’d appreciate if you would remove the posts which are blatantly trying to derail.

Based on whatever arbitrary standards you set, what do you think the strongest faction is?

Please don’t spam by just typing the name of the faction and submitting; if you’re going to post, give at least a short description of why you believe what you do.

EDIT: I’d also appreciate if you could do this without trolling or accusations. Every faction at the top after P. rex has benefited from cheating, so try to avoid hypocrisy and express your opinions kindly.

I think we should be able to differentiate between accusations and substantiated facts. Nevertheless, that’s not the focus of this thread. If you want to have a discussion about what faction’s ex-leadership may or may not have lied about their history of cheating, please make another thread to do that. I will respond in kind by not posting in that thread about what faction is the strongest ever.

No refills: LoA2. They still had deathray.

Refills: LoA2. See above.

Considering how often I hear about deathray, it’s amazing how I keep forgetting about it. You’re absolutely right. There is nothing that any other top faction has ever done that would be able to compete against this strategy.

BW.

LoA and IFS was simply on who spend more $$$.

GW is the weakest fction to reach the top.
MoM cheated with GoW.

Also Italian reach the number 3# BUT with only 3 wars/day.
Warmongers stays still around.
Same for tasw, i see them born.

I should have added that I’m looking for non-trolling opinions. Sorry for the confusion, I’ll add that to the OP.

Originally posted by JRJetu:

Refills or no?

Whichever you want. I’d say refills, since the game was more competitive when that was a factor.

Seems like no one thinks that GW is the strongest faction ever, including their members. I’m not sure why this question was even proposed. Since everything else in this thread is unrelated to the subject, is there a good reason for it to not be locked?

Because I want to be able to trust that this community can have a constructive discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of past and present top factions. Not lock everything like a dictator.

They might be able to (not really, but for the sake of argument…), but that wasn’t the purpose of this thread. This was just to discuss if GW is the best ever, and other than Jose, no one has shown an inkling of belief that it actually is. If people want to have a separate discussion comparing other factions which might be the best ever, shouldn’t they make a thread called something to the effect of: “What faction is the best ever?”

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / kapitalKs issue with new mods

Originally posted by FredrIQ:

The new mods are kinda new, they may have some issues at the beginning. So far it has gone OK imo, allthough you are very right on the off topic part, I mean just look, we have 4-5 AMA threads, some random “pooh” thread (wtf?), etc. Maybe this is a result of the game stagnating and people not feeling like talking about tyrant as much? Might as well create a tyrant-specific off topic forum then.

Anyway, I agree somewhat to the thread. I don’t agree to your posts usually being that constructive, and mostly agree to your post removals, but there is definitely some issues atm.

Also, keep in mind, if you see spam, you can always flag it, it will be taken care of in due time.

I think another thing that needs to be taken into account is that a lot of players are trying to see how far they can push the new mod staff (although I notice this happening with Shadow more than ralkk or LDV). Hopefully after most of them see how much they can/can’t get away with, things will settle down.
