Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [To DEVs] a 3rd Upgrade Pack to make

The problem with all new cards is that they’re made like they SHOULD activate, all those are make to activate no matter the players’ strategy, or else be even more useful while they aren’t active. That’s why things like CW, Usial or MT owned the game, the reason of fast-paced powercreep. I don’t see why anything should be buffed to activate always.

I’d like to see this developed, but with a good balance. Also, some of those don’t really need the buff/upgrade.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Vote on Apocalypse Rewards.

Iron Grinder, great survability, decent stats, it usually will deal more damage than it takes (because of armor 3, good attack and counter 3), and a TRIBUTE Summon with Siege 2, ideal to protect your Imp protect alls support, make your rally all cards into juggernauts like Thunderers do with Buoy, and also helps against buildings. All of this against a high Hp and high counter Unique, with good but slow rally and some help against buildings. You’re lucky if Varcoe does something killing one opponent play.

Therefore, my vote is for Iron Grinder.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / What caused Tyrant War Metals Declined?

To pick over some stuff from NickHereOrig’s account –
Colossus was a useful card for at least 6 months, Dracorex for going on 2 years.

Pescado =/= Black Ops. Pesacdo = Covert Ops, which was #2 when BlOps was #1.

Devs only banned Pescado’s bots once zaraki basically shouted at them to do it. The first cause of why so much cheating went on is because devs did bugger all against abuse.

But yeah, it’s a nice wall to read.

That’s very old drama, more than three years ago, so I didn’t remember well. I got 3 or 4 Colossus and they were good at the time, a top card, but few months (two) they were hardly any useful, at least not competitive. Obviously I’m happy about Dracorex. That’s right, Pescado was Covert Ops.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / What caused Tyrant War Metals Declined?

When I started playing this, there were only 3 collections, Gold (Standard), Enclave and Nexus, also Silver and Bronze pack but who cares about those. Powercreep was fast, I stacked my 60 WB to access to Elite, bought Draco and Colossus, top cards then. They were useless in a month (Colossus, not Draco). Powercreep has been running rampant. Then Elite dissapeared soon after.

By that time, BO (Pescado’s Ops) was the top faction. Inaccessible top faction. Unbeatable. And SURPRISE! Full botting. It wasn’t the only one, the top factions had almost always cheated. Probable exceptions come from the mighty Germany, Ich Bin ein Berliner, or some of the other cool guys, P-Rex for example (nice faction). Another fact: CHEATING. Also, tournaments…the tournament bugs were never fixed, there was a stack of meaningless updates while that tournament bug that ruined 1/6 to 1/10 battles remained, and also cheating started to appear…tournaments, specially sealed, should be fun to anyone, but bugs and cheating ate them out. Also, the general state of the game made people play less, and tournaments were the most time-consuming feature (and they make me stick to the game regardless of bugs and those top 1% with 77/63 or similar in a 2 hours).

Forced surging, as the only way to fight, in a Quickstrike meta first to play, first to win, was a very shocking update. I had some doubts about the game, by that time it was nice, spend 5-20 mins and get away, but only 100 stam called you back every 2 hours if you can to be competitive. A couple days later, appears surge and fight as we know it today. This is before tournaments but needs to be recalled. This lack of sensibility was the first mass-quit, many, as I did, came back in a week, some others didn’t. In my semi-competitive, fast-growing faction, it almost killed it. Many factions stopped growing and the whole faction tendencies changed, not only because of surging power, but for a incredibly poorly implemented and unexpected update. They thought that starting first in a QS vs QS was lame, as the first always won, so they made defense first…imagine the results…also, The Drama Wars succeded at the game, and when Blight update was introduced, many new players started facing the fact that the game is slow, and any update is going to make it harder for a newbie. No one is going to spend money in a game if not for real elite, and it’s really hard with any new update, and the risk (fact) that your cards won’t work for more than few months.

Then, crafting…when crafting was released (I remember how Svet, the real Svet dominated tournaments), it was really hard (grindy) to get anything useful from it, and the best card for the game (or at least for the meta) was there: Heracles. There, I quit for more than a year. And everything changed. Events, new packs, summon…new skills, cards with better stats, shards…new players will see they lack some essentials they can’t get. And there are more than 200 missions, you need really good cards and months to walk through. Competitive game is a year or 50$ away. And veterans quit. I don’t know the impact of all of this, fear meta, that utterly stupid update of jam all Pigs, summons, troll cards, those irritating usial+cw decks (since half a month from my comeback, I was thinking about quitting once for all), and my top decks, were nothing but scrap. New commanders, upgrades, strategy (that “micro” strategical player gamestyle) was killed due to cards overpowering other cards and making it all a mess.

I guess conquest was a nice update, BUT again, I wasn’t here when it came out, so I don’t know how token hunger was affecting the whole playerbase, or how those trade wars and all that coward systems works. And with events, nice update, but miss it and you’re at a hard position. Veyr is another thing to laugh at. I miss some things, like 0hio beating factions for months with that 66000 score, those stam refills (nicest update ever, 300 stam [5 hours!!], and no more stam refills). Skip button, new raid system (good, not so grindy with endless 10 energy battles, but hard for newbies who won’t be able to do even 100 dmg to commander in 15×2 turns) are more of those things I missed.

The game powercreep was faster than its progress, that could be desesperately slow if not for those energy upgrade (still a lot slower than the rate new cards make you forget of the good cards you had). This extinguished new players, disuaded fast when they saw how we have grinded to stay our ground and how impossible to any of them is to reach any of us, even in a year. Key cards were pay only (that Get Grims from event and pay me 2 Nests to beat ESoK or spend lots of time, effort, energy and organization to fail with Gaunts was a heavy lockdown), Usial, Thules…this is a sad fact. Creative deckbuilding wasn’t really useful in PvP, because cards have a level, and only 15% of new releases are usable. The paths for it wasn’t clear, and while some updates were great and offered new fun possibilities, lots of them backfired because of a card that will dominate the meta and tear every other deck apart. Also, that lack of sensibility at Pigs, Crafting (Heracles and the total domination of Svet decks and few fear was the true reason for people hating crafting), Fear meta, Usial, Nests, Grims, CW lock and some others, could make people tired because competitiveness is one-way only. It was unstable, and started losing players day by day, while new players could’ve felt like a chubby dog in african sabana and didn’t reach any height to keep the game running.

Also devs could get tired of some aggresive community spearheads and constant whinning, that made them get away, there were lots of conflict between devs and players point of view. Factions didn’t respect the rules at all. Acc Sharing, botting-scripting, to blatant cheating (game manipulation) happened, and I still have my suspects that devs knew some cases but the money outcome from the cheating players and bots silenced them. Overall, I think many players, many factions, the nature of the game itself (new players are in the perfect middle of nowhere compared to oldies, it’s impossible to catch up, and eventually the oldies get tired of the game’s pace or a risky or groundbreaking update), and the fact devs got away of community and surely had a lot of work with other games caused WMT to fall. And they tried, Consortium, Pip (always remember Pip, Tyrant could’ve been shut down two years ago if not for people like him), and some other approachs, but then, in a time I wasn’t here to tell step by step, took incredible decisions like Jammy Pigs. Some of the vets will be surprised that this game lasted so much with updates and dev attention on it, cause many (myself included) predicted it would die in 2012. It would be nice if they don’t shut it down, but just stopped to support and update it, or they could sell it.

This game always had a fragile equilibrium player-faction-dev, money-playability-competitiveness-fair play (I still think syn knew about Pescado’s cheating, but it created a lot of income and kept it up until the uproar was astonishing, there are probably more recent cases and competition decreased a lot because of factions mass alliances and cheating, making many players to leave), and the cards balance changed with any update, sometimes in a very sudden and abrupt way, leaving most of its predecessors obsolete. This powercreep, player-dev frays, faction stuff and lack of communication made players and devs burnout.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Legion Of Doom VS Snake Order

Ok, that’s enough. I won’t read the full thread. You had 0hiO in, won the war by less than 1000 points difference, then the next day he’s not in LoD (don’t you know who 0hiO is? probably biggest cheater of Tyrant history along with Pescado). Ok.

You made almost a dozen threads flaming SO. We’re farming you for tokens, we don’t need to be competitive because that’s no reason to try and get as many FP as you can (Fervor? Earthshaker? come on…), so we do our 4 wars+defs a day, with 1-2 tough wars a day, our 8 tokens and we’re done.

So what’s wrong with you? I know jose-carlos919 legion of alts will be trying to set the forums-chatrooms afire. Do what you want, you can even make Lazerav_Jose, AntiSnakeOrder and 10 more alt-accounts (so much time invested on us), just to come to room 10 and make your own show, even making alt-acc to threathen yourselves and saying they’re from SO, because I have serious doubts that we are going to make an alt-acc, we can say that from our mains…we threathening you lol, I see no reason to focus on you. So you can cheat and so on (as a faction, or some players, I don’t care about it), but don’t take a 1 FP war to the forums and say that we cheat or make another account to go threathen you because that’s pathetic. If you cheat or not means not a problem at least to me, but don’t say we cheat unless you’re trying to make us laugh, you need something more to do it because it became really boring, try to be original at least.

Anyway you should clean your faction from people like 0hiO, and many forum trolls/attention whores are probably not worth it. No more trollfest, just play the game, you have caught us offguard many times and it’s nice to have a war with you, but we don’t need that strange things to happen. So try to win the wars, not the threads. I guess LoD is a nice faction, with the exception of 2-3 players that don’t represent it at all.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [SPOILER] new content finally :O

Fusion makes “Do X 1” => “Do X 2”, if three cards with fusion are active (for example, Bloom would have Heal BT 6, Weaken 4). The question is…if all 6 come into play…will Barbel Strike All/Siege All 4, 6 or 8?

Anyway it’s not going to happen…but many times you’ll have to deal with a Strike All 4, and probably Weaken all 4. Overseers anyone? Probably with a Nest to avoid them having -1 attack, or you can try mass siege to avoid them activating. Seems like a hard raid because of the fusion structures, but the rewards…meh, dissapointing.

I wasn’t aware of the bug FredrIQ pointed out. Dunno, isn’t there a customer service you can mail about this ir something?

Even if you were right you have close to zero chances here on the forums, the devs aren’t much talkative lately as you might have noticed^^

Yes, I’ll try another way again. Thank you.

So you are telling that I’m really #14, that 6-7 people was playing until the last second, and they all got more than 1064!? Real #14 has 1058, #15 has 1054 (he has to get +12, as he’s 7/1, 11/3>8/1), #16 has 1044 (out of range). So 7 out of 7 possible players, playing to last second, and all of them winning after tourney ends…it sounds really odd.

And, just in case people thinks that I’m below that…I was below that, then won the last battle. It’s not because I lost and it didn’t refresh to 1054 or so. It’s really easy to fix this bug as FredrIQ said, wait ten minutes to end all battles, then give the rewards.

Originally posted by FredrIQ:

Watermelon is only partially correct, while indeed the top bar is what counts, the issue is the very opposite (it’s less up to date, rather than it’s more up to date), if you do a match the last 2min of a tourney, a tier change may not affect you in time before tyrant stops bothering with refreshing the rankings.
This could be fixed easily by closing the tournament for refreshing 10min after tournament end rather than immediately.
Tyrant claims it already does that (it waits until all games are played), but it’s bugged.

I’ve seen several times during a tournament that my rank glitches like that, but it fixes itself after 5min or so. However, if such glitch happens during closing, it stays glitched, screwing you over.

This can also happen the other way around! I guess we never see such reports because people rather keep quiet about bugs thatv give them more than they should have ;)

True. But it would be better is this gets fixed. I wouldn’t care that much if this weren’t a WB tourney and I weren’t a free player. Bumping…

Why? It hadn’t refresh for a week. I know it won’t do. This is an obvious bug. I know that my chances to get 9 WBs (as a free player, it hurts) are few, but why not try? Also this may help others, or the Devs detecting and fixing it. And two top 1%s out of the ten tourneys shown is good for bragging :P

either calculations for rewards are bugged or theyre not updating properly, most likely both, it wont get fixed anyway

Probably 1vsAll has my WBs…whatever, tourneys are the best of the game for me and they have a lot of bugs. It’s the only thing that didn’t get an improve since I left Tyrant for a year aprox, they always had annoying bugs.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Hopelessly to devs] Permenant PVP events

It’s a good idea. But what does it resemble to? Old Arena. It’s basically old arena with another matchmaking system without choosing opponent and, of course, rewards (and BG). +1, but it would be good to start it 0/10 (ten hours before), and let people use their stored attacks when finished (for 10 hours or so). If you have five battles left and will be sleeping when the “event” finishes, it stops storing battles, but you can use the five that you stored during event. No timezone advantage…
