Wrong place to ask. Most people in this forum have proven themselves unable to identify satire.

However, to anyone concerned, we do have several experts in P. rex who would help you to identify satire if you joined the faction. If you are active and if you aren’t on our veto list, apply by sending Pip a PM.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Motivational speech to PRex

I’ve received a couple of messages that suggested that I should clear a few things up here with a quick disclaimer. Crazyeye2011 has no association with P. rex at all (not even a little bit). His views/opinions/posts/actions in no way reflect that of our faction in any way. He has never been in our faction, and he has no influence on our actions or attitudes towards any other player or faction. Any post he makes about our faction or the factions currently ranked around us are his alone, and P. rex neither condones it nor do we wish to encourage it in any way.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / What Ever Happened To The Chromancer hype?

Originally posted by Sir_Valimont:

It’s most quiet before the storm. ;p

Actually what “happened” is like almost every indie product in this industry, the development cycle has taken longer than expected. It’s still coming and it’s still going to be amazing!! It’s tough (and somewhat counter-productive) to hype a product while you’re experiencing delays so things have quieted down temporarily.

If you have any specific questions feel free to send me a message through Kong’s message system. Our game is almost completely ready and you can be sure you will hear about it once you’re actually able to come play. We hate the delays … but to be honest it’s much better to delay than to release too early with a bad game. Actually that’s almost verbatim what the president of Nintendo said last year in an address discussing latest products in the larger industry.

Cheers, see you soon.

- Sir V

Thanks for the update. Come back to IRC to idle like all the cool people!

The alt is the only person here with a shred of evidence supporting their argument. Seems like no one else even actually has an argument other than “no”.

Considering how well you do it, and unbiased you are, here: I agree. /s

It’s pretty much unavoidable. The mod would undoubtably end up being a P. rex member like always, and LDV knows all of our passwords, so she’d just end up modding either way.

I know mods are in PRex, but can someone please remove the recruitment link from this thread?

I partially agree with the guy who, for some reason, opts not to post on his main. This thread should be locked. Given the response from those who were addressed by the title, the only purpose this thread now serves is as a recruitment thread for us, and P. rex already has a recruitment thread in the proper sub-forum.

Counter argument to rets’ argument why devs should ignore WMT: playerbase goodwill. (G’luck valuing that, especially in the current “entitled” gaming culture.)

Regardless of whether the devs will do any further development, existentially, the community can and ought to set its own goals without developer contribution. EMP’s conquest art is an excellent example of a realized community goal. I get so many feels when I see the community accomplish their own goals.

Old school hard core rogue-likes, like Nethack and ADOM have “conducts” where players set goals like vegan diets, atheism or illiteracy (which are pretty severe handicaps in already unforgiving game). Sometimes these conducts are tracked, but really they arose from the player community and bragging.

Paradox games have spawned After Action Reports where players post their experience in their sandbox games, some of which can be described as literature.

The current community goal that I’m aware of is getting P. rex to #1. I think this is a good goal, and one that everyone should get behind. There’s something poetic about being the first faction at #1 and the last faction at #1, circles and all that.

Hmmm… come to think of it, this is starting to look like a P. rex recruitment thread.

Why should everyone help out P-rex? is nobody else allowed to try for their goals of reaching #1? Why should we help a faction that already was #1 once. (twice if you count BW)?

I think that whooshed over you. Check out the last sentence again in context. After you do that, please send Pip a PM to apply, and we’ll try to make space for you as soon as we can.

Perhaps the community goal is to prevent prex from getting to #1.

People liked P. rex so much more before we won a few wars. :(

@ Pip.

The problem with enjoying these last 6/7 months of the game is that most of us have already done everything there is to do.

You just blatantly ignored like 95% of his post. When the Devs announced “the end”, maybe you should have taken that as a sign to finish up and find a new game rather than waiting for new content in a game which was, again, announced as being over (and let’s be honestly, you’d just end up finding a way to whine about any new content either way).

What Pip and Rets said is accurate, but I’m just glad to be in the faction that’s on the polar opposite end of the spectrum from Snake Order. Can’t get more legit than that.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Let's make sure it goes full circle... Need some help

I agree with Pip and Rets. This isn’t a P. rex recruitment thread. By now, most of you should know that if you want to apply, you should check out the actual recruitment thread, where it says to send a PM to Pip and follow the rules he has set. Alternatively, you can send LDV dirty haikus, but she doesn’t know how to read her PM, so you’ll have to send that via shout.

(Note: as a couple of people have found out, there is a loose veto system in place; almost none of you will have to worry about it, but it would be negligent of me to not mention it)

Actually. I quoted exactly what I quoted so it couldn’t be more complete. You aren’t in a position to tell me to let it rest, cause unlike you I was there to see all these things happen.

If you think it is funny to use Siga’s joke, he used it to take attention off the fact he tried to point something out and messed up, it might be funny, it’s up to the audience. I think it is rather cheap.

Of course you wouldn’t think I was funny. The joke was at your expense.

I am exactly in the position to tell you to let it rest, because your post is in a public forum, which makes it subject to response and criticism. Hypocritically goading on an issue which you previously stated needs to be “put to rest” probably doesn’t help you to seem much better than an ‘idiot’, which is what I was primarily pointing out. Both Supermooo and Sean had their say. Sean’s friends agree with him, and Supermooo’s friends agree with her. In any case. Let it rest

She flat out lied to us in our merge negotiations. Once we joined the faction she went back on every term and agreement we had.


She constantly campaigned against me trying to encourage her OoD players to dislike me.



You knew exactly what you where getting into when you joined OOD. Moo was pretty upfront about some of the things she found important. That included keeping some of the less active people, that included OOD being a mixed faction of both hardcore and more casual.


It would be a 50/50 deal, and from the start you did exactly what you accuse her of. It was actually you who tried to convince people from OOD that moo was incompetent. You where aiming for mutiny from the get go.


Unlucky for you a lot of the players love Moo for the way she is. Sure she isn’t a leader for #1, but she is a leader that can be respected for her personality. Since you lack that, I won’t blame you for not understanding this.


Don’t get me wrong, where 2 fight there are 2 guilty. I can understand the anger a lot of people got for mooo cause they all didn’t ask for this shit. But ya’ll are channeling your anger the wrong way. It was actually Sean who led you guys to OOD, while Moo was upfront about her philosophy from the beginning. He tried to change that and it didn’t work out. Tough luck. Don’t blame moo for being moo. Sean you idiot.


Finally: I don’t really get why you bring up the alt-stuff. You have alts everywhere so stfu.
But If we are addressing it I have to agree with thegil

Your quotation is rather incomplete don’t you think? In any case. Let it rest

This thread really doesn’t not belong on TU forums. Just give it a rest already how many months do you WMT people have to hijack our forums? It’s entirely reasonable if you dislike TU, there are valid reasons a person would dislike it. I can’t understand for the life of me why you come here and spend your spare time talking about something you dislike so much. It seems rational to spend your spare time engaging in something you consider productive, healthy or fun.

+1, I totally agree. Some people in WMT are way too obsessed with TU despite continually claiming that they hate it. The person who made this thread needs to learn to move on.

some people still got dignity in this game

I’m not sure that it’s a good sign when you feel the need to express pride in someone having dignity, since that’s kinda undignified in-and-of itself; it’s a little like bragging about being humble. In this particular instance, it’s a notably unfounded claim due to his recent post history, but that’s a whole other discussion.

Speaking if dignity, I think we can lay the BW/OoD drama to rest. Both parties have moved on and seem happier now. It should no longer affect anything in the game, so unless you are trolling, there is no reason to discuss its details any more.

^in addition to the above, you’re welcome to bring along your pineapples. We’re very flexible about pineapples.

Quick update on this. The officers took a vote, and P. rex is no longer pineapple friendly due to the way they were being used (way to ruin it for everyone, Rets). Apologies to all of those to who got their hopes up as a result of LDV’s last post.

But yeah, as long as you aren’t bringing pineapples, send Pip a PM! Barring another merger between factions ranked above us or violations of fair play, we will probably get to the number 1 spot in a few weeks, so we’re mostly looking for any bandwagoners who have the patience to help LDV build a viable surge deck, but we’ll accept pretty much anyone.

(increased likelihood of acceptance if you are named Mike)
