Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [Dev] Hallowed Brawl

We have made a small tweak to mid-tier matchmaking for the Hallowed Brawl today. A larger revamp of the early Brawl matchmaking is planned for the next event.

How about matching everyone to a random player? If lower levels are more likely to face off against lower levels, doesn’t that conceivably mean someone with a lesser deck and lesser br could have a higher brawl reward than someone with a good deck, and higher br?
Since the purpose of the brawl is the rank players in terms of skill and deck strength, wouldn’t this be the most fair system? It would also stop complaints that matchmaking is rigged (aside from those with weak decks).

lol what the fuck is that raider?

Clearly designed as an effective commander killer. But that art, I don’t know if it’s trying to be one of those tank mechs from armored core or if it’s a tank trying to be people or what. Who is your fucking artist and what drugs are they on? That thing looks about as impractical as dune runner.

And that vindi is silly. But it’s a vindi, so it’s okay.

I stand corrected, it’s actually a giant shoe.

May I present the T101.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / Based on art alone, what is the most powerful card?

Nimbus

Look at how many strike craft it’s carrying. Too bad its stats don’t reflect it, and the “upgraded” art is a downgrade imo.
It’s a pretty bad legendary in WMT too.
The only time it reflected its art is when it was in a special “Vindicator” category for super powerful units in the original War Metal (the game before before WMT).

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / Counter Cards [Minigame]

The old War Metal Tyrant forums had a great forum minigames, I thought I’d bring one of them to TU:
Original Thread:
http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/253248-advanced-counter-cards-game-squabble-edition
From the original:
GENERAL RULES
1) Know how to post a pic (instructions at bottom of this post), do not post without a pic
2) Read the post before you and play a card that will defeat it if played NEXT. (ie. surging)
3) You must follow the unique rule at the top of the page you are on
4) If you are the first post on a new page, you may change the unique rule ensuring a card pool of at least 100 cards.
5) If the unique rule has not been changed, then the previous pages’ rule applies
6) Copy the unique rule in your own post
7) You may use Assault + structures but not commanders or action (the card that survives, wins)
8) Abilities with 50% activation will activate 100% unless unique rule states otherwise
9) The card you post must be able to be countered by a single card in the unique rule, or
10) If a dead end is accidentally reached, declare a new unique rule and post a new card.
11) Cards may not appear twice on the same page unless there is no other possible counter.
12) Make stupid whimsical comment about your card choice :P
13) Unique rules may be re-used on separate pages. That is the first poster’s (per page) choice.
14) Once a card has been posted below yours, do not edit your post as it causes confusion. Even if your card was proven to not be a winning counter.
15) Things can get confusing and complicated at times, try not to squabble, but find a way to get the game back on track instead.

Since, unlike WMT, the TU wiki (@ tyrantunleashed.wikia.com) doesn’t include stats on the card art, either post the art and the stats, or just the stats in this format Attack/Health/Delay Skills

I’ll start off with the first card:

Edit: I thought I copied this along with the rules, but the newly posted card goes first (more possible counters).
Edit2: 50% rule no longer applies, since TU has no such skills.

Genymotion/Bluestacks/whichever equivalent.

You lose a lot of performance with an emulator, my i7-4710HQ can barely emulate the PS2 and some of its games at 30 FPS, and a new S6 is arguably more powerful than a 10 year old console.
Doing it on pc would solve this problem too:

I use TyrantSim on my iPhone, and I think it’s unfair that we can’t sim raids because the newest abilities are always given to us after the raid is over. Is there any way you could keep us equal with Android because we need to be able to sim for the raids just like they do.

Originally posted by manesero:

Spend 1500 gold (~22 sp) to get new objectives that “might” earn you 15 or 30 sp?

Just make it so that the objectives can be accomplished with your current deck. e.g. you have to have 4+ imp cards in your deck for that objective to have a possibility to appear.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [MK] Talos Raid Spoiler (+ Vindi)

Originally posted by wardy87:

Mdmagic no way why you wanna go giving a support skill to a glass cannon? Heal all my ass. The card is fine as it is. Ever since shock d everyone wants every card to be a super powerful insta pick for their deck. The more we get balanced cards like this the more we will actually start seeing some deck variety.

Also comparing box cards to f2p doesn’t really work as p2w win is inherently stronger. As for basilisk, he does not fit in my raider deck. This guy does. The only thing I would consider wishing for on him is maybe another zerk point so he can at least deal with dh corrosive.

That would be a fair buff considering its vindicator status. But right now it is underwhelming – vindi should count for something over legend and epic.

Yep, I like it. Maybe this time we will go for a dual again…

Originally posted by ratchet500:

Quad reward vindi stats feel like they should be dual. Buff.

Don’t think it needs a buff… those that will get it won’t use it anyway. It is balanced as it is and have good dual.

Isn’t that a clear sign it needs a buff?
Or maybe a comparison to quad basilisk, and an epic.
vs. 5/20/2 zerk 4, Valor 7, Pierce 6

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To the devs] This game is dying

Originally posted by Loius:

I dunno, why don’t you just price everything reasonably? 60$US buys a full-priced AAA title. 60$Tyrant should buy a full deck. I buy things in games that cost 1$ or 2$, often spending up to 60$ on a freemium game. There’s no way in hell I would spend 500$ on something of such limited scope as Tyrant. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun, but it’s not a 500$ game.

Agreed, a single box card in this game costs 60 wbs+ ($5). You could get a full deck of physical cards that you can hold in your hand for a Trading (which will never be implemented) TCG for that price. Heck, for 2 cards you could get full titles like Metro Last Light while on Steam sale. Or for 10 cards, you could buy any of the versions of GTA V or Witcher 3 (or preorder). And said cards aren’t guaranteed to be useful (probably more likely not to be useful by the number of rares). I spent here and there both in this game and WMT, but got burned when WMT closed.
