Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Back When Tyrant Was Fun

I don’t know if the game itself was ever fun, but the people and the drama were loads of fun!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] WMT Update [Tyrant ending on August 15th 2015]

Oh, apparently this is a thing that’s happening. I’d like to think everyone knew it would happen eventually, and honestly I must say I’m actually impressed that the developer would actually keep the game running a year after the point that they’d kind of like to shut it down, and intends to release another final update to boot.

This is awesome, tell me about your time machine! The fact that you wouldn’t have the brains to not take a screenshot of your system clock shows that you’re clearly a young kid on a power trip.

Legit? Heck no. Why the fudge would he only have 2000 oil company? He’d gain cash 30-40% times faster if he’d upgrade beyond 2000.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Scientific Notation?

I think it’s more fun the way it is now, but if it were some sort of toggle/setting, I’d be fine with them adding scientific notation even if I never used it. Once they become purely numbers, they lose a lot of their identity, and I’d probably be a bit less interested in seeing the next one.

Also once you get to decillion, counting up is basically like counting from 20 and up (although it would be more appropriate if I started at vegintillion). 20 (twenty) is vegintillion, 21 (twenty one) is unvegintillion, 22 is duovegintillion… 30 being trigentillion, and then it starts from the un prefix again.

Topic: AdVenture Capitalist / Any other people with extremely low Angel investers

Usually I reset after getting 50-100% more angel investors than I had before. Not sure if that’s good advice, but I feel like it lets me keep a good balance between little micro and good returns.

Only spend angels when the benefit of the purchase outweighs the amount you’ll reduce your production speed.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reasons players might stay ?

1- Already spent a lot of money on this game. Sunk cost fallacy.
2- Spent little or no money, don’t really mind getting hacked, are ‘having fun’ in the game.
3- Think things will improve in the future, even though they’ve been just getting worse.
4- Pvp. Need to rank in top 32 to join dick-waving tournament at the end of the season.

That’s all I can think of. Are there any other reasons players might stay?

Topic: Rise of Mythos / STOP with making cards

Making suggestions on the forums is pointless. Even if gamefuse would read the suggestions and wanted to implement them, they can’t, because they aren’t the actual developers and this game is a Chinese port. Just so you know.

I don’t remember if I made it to both on time, but I won at least once. Should just give everyone on the server 200 gold, I’d say.

Looks like they’ve brought in some muscle from China to handle the situation. Whoever wrote this does not have a good handle on the English language.

Hi guys,

We’re looking into the issue with our engineers now. I’ll make sure to keep you all updated as we learn more.

Thanks,

Stormshade

It’s kind of funny. I advocated that you guys be more active and responsive in the forums, which you’re doing and I’m sure is appreciated to some extent, but it’s starting to get a bit silly. I’m pretty sure you’ve said the issue was fixed on like 4-5 different occasions in the past few weeks. Maybe you should frame your posts as:

“We’ve pushed another update through meant to solve this issue. If you’re still having problems, please let us know as soon as possible. We will be monitoring the situation closely, because it’s important to us that only the account owners are able to access their own accounts, and nobody else.”

This would give you some room for failing to fix the issue once-and-for-all, while still showing that you’re trying to get it fixed, and that the issue is important to you. You don’t need to use the same exact words, just find a better way to frame your posts so that they wouldn’t be so certain of success.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Gold strike - Fire opals

Quoting myself from the maintenance thread, where I discovered something interesting and relevant:

Hold the phone… they removed the fire opal from the 5 color chest reward for this version of the event? Like, no joke? Do they really hate the idea of player power progression so much?

This gold rush event is not what we meant “for free”, it has nothing to do with what i said in this post. lol Actually we are still designing that free event and will come out soon in the future :)

Designing an event where you can get fire opals for free, eh? I hope it wasn’t this one, because this is one where you removed the fire opals for possibly-free.

Next update to the power point presentation:

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Steam Group for Strategy Card Games

I actually was writing up a short one before the last thread got locked up, don’t think I feel like doing it again since the post was lost due to the lock after trying to submit. I figured it would be best to just mention a name and nothing else to lower the odds of this thread meeting the same fate as the last.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Steam Group for Strategy Card Games

Yeah, it was pretty obvious that your review would get removed since you’re posting ‘competition’ in the forums controlled by the people running the game. I was going to warn you to save your post, but then I took too long to post mine, and yours went poof. If you have the power to prevent your players from finding a better game than yours, wouldn’t you try to stop them too? It’s not like gamefuse wants anybody to have as much fun as possible, they aren’t in it for the benefit of gamers.

That being said, War of Omens.

On a related note, I never noticed much of a ‘community’ here in the forums themselves. There’s some back-and-forth and some humor at the expensive of our overlords, a bit of watching them screw up / ignore the issues until the shit hits the fan, but not a lot of regular faces that contribute to the community in some positive way. I did what I could to help people log in during the notorious Week of Darkness, and have my wall-of-text Winning Sieges guide that was pinned by Trine shortly before leaving the company, but I wouldn’t say I’m a part of some community here or anything, because I don’t see it.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Lucky draw???

yeah, as a vip0 i don’t really care about lucky draw, for me it’s only a way to get 10-30 fusing materials. i play this game for about 6-7 months, and i’ve only got 1 or 2 epics at lucky draw.
One of the most unfair things about being vip, isn’t the packs, it’s the lucky draw. i mean, come on, i’ve seen people getting legendary cards at lucky draw, getting a legendary for simply logging in and clicking to draw a card, when vip0 people have to suffer a lot to get a single legendary(i’m level 58, almost 59, and have only 13 legendary cards).

If it’s any consolation to you, they can only get 1.0 legendaries from lucky draw, and almost all of those suck. The exceptions being Ecann the Charger (which seems to be gone from the meta), and Mifizuna the Wind.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Reasons players might leave ?

I quit due to the lack of meaningful strength progression. Was waiting for fire opals in tower shop for months, because those would have finally made doing the tower and collecting silver worth a damn. Naturally, the only thing they failed to add in the update was the only thing I even wanted.

Apparently you either have to spend $200 to get some legendary card versions of epics, or else you just don’t deserve to have them.

Quick note

and hold onto them as long as humanely possible without getting yourself killed.

This would mean holding onto them as long as it was not infringing on their rights or dignity. I think the word you were looking for was humanly. :P
