Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Players' Pack] Survey Results

i think what caino was saying was that he may have put ‘no’, when in fact he was in #cabal talking as much as anyone? assuming i understand this right, i would’ve considered his participation completely valid as he did talk, between ridiculousnesses, about card power and utility.

the question asks if you participated ‘at all’, which is open to personal interpretation, but to me it includes posting card ideas, and commenting on the process itself in the forum.

Yeah, but hetero doesn’t tell the whole story. What do you self-identify as? By heterosexual, do you mean ‘straight, male and cisgender’?
We demand to know.

wtf, heterosexual is pretty clear. he likes girls. Wtf is cisgender

right? it’s a thing now, though. people always want more options. ignoring it’s just gonna make you ‘that old guy who doesn’t get it’, eventually.

cisgender means you identify w/ your birth gender. male that identifies as male, and therefore hetero/straight means he likes girls.

I participated because I want my card(s) in the dying game, and then everyone will forget about it in less than a year. :)

forgetting about all the time spent, frustration and drama for 3+ years would be like forgetting about high school.

I would like to see a mission that Can’t be/Hard to be Sim-ed, to make players think while playing. Which is the idea of QUEST originaly intended, but failed to deliver.

  • Something like randomize enemy’s commander+cardpool or a very large pool.
  • You cannot make simming harder with card pools or backgrounds. Not even a little bit.

    A ‘90%’ deck that’s obtained with 100k simulations is 90% no matter how random the opponent deck, and it takes the same amount of work (100k sims) regardless of the complexity of the opponent deck.

    we don’t know; it is a strong technical suspicion that it won’t work right. hell, it’s probable the DEVs couldn’t say either, without digging through the code, or doing some tests. hopefully we can get a more definite answer at some point.

    Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / I apologize for this not being related to Tyrant.

    i thought penny arcade had an interesting comment on the Minecraft sale:

    If you don’t hang around with Children Of A Certain Age, you might not know exactly what is being bought here. They’re functionally purchasing a generation. Two billion dollars starts to look like a steal.

    i’m an ass for saying ‘no’, but technically the one on the right is better quality. TU image is just the WMT compressed to have fewer colors and smaller file size.

    you can see lines in the TU clouds where the compression reduced the number of colors. the one on the right has a smooth cloud structure and is twice the file size

    I think all current TU and WMT images are again available, and you can thank Psycho for the motivation.

    I simplified the update process to pull from the TU wikia directly instead of having to email correspond w/ MK (which he was great at, I was not), so when the new-new raid cards show up the update should be trivial.

    As always, if anything’s broken (especially since I changed my updater) let me know.

    Edit: hmm, may be broken!
    Edit: I see the Apocalypse pack set icon isn’t there
    Edit: looks like duplicate images are showing up

    Hmm, okay they aren’t duplicates. These two images are named the same, but are literally different, you can even see it. TU is on the left, WMT is on the right.

    not sure how to solve this now that we don’t have MK’s meticulous curating of images emailed to me. i guess we just get ‘duplicates’.

    Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Automatic deck optimization

    you can run as many threads as you have processors to speed up the calculations. you could run lots of threads on a single processor machine, but that one processor has to hop between threads doing all the work, so there’s no speed up. If you were doing a million sims of a deck, and you had a 100 processor machine, the code could break it up into 100 threads each running 10000 simulations and then each of the 100 thread would report its wins, and the main thread would just count them all up; this approach to Tyrant deck simulation can be called embarrassingly parallel.

    priority is a low level concept in an operating system that orders what the processor works on. if you have, say, a video Skype call you want to make while still climbing towards your perfect Epic Lithid deck, you can lower the priority of the simulation to give Skype (or anything with higher priority) the lion’s share of the processing power while you make the call. But, what’s nice is, if nothing is running but the low-priority simulation then it will still take up all possible computing resources.

    tl;dr set the # of threads to the # of processors in your machine; ask google how figure out how many processors/cores are in your machine. if your machine feels slow while simulating in the background, set the priority lower.

    reward card Nightmare, fear+flurry, has been around a while.

    FIQ, i think you’re saying.. you could never start a battle if your deck had multiple legendaries? is this a server-decided thing, not just the client-side; i.e. you couldn’t start the battle even if you just sent the battle commands?

    if i had a deck w/ multiple legendaries, i would’ve tested it :P

    i don’t get the joke. it looked like a post showing a counter.

    personally, i would like to see less used skills such as payback & regenerate get put on cards that are simply high attack and health.
