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

Oh wow.

I logged into Kongregate after about a year off to play one of my favorite Kongregate games as a teenager and I find out it’s being shut down in a year?

I am quite angry at this for several reasons.

Firstly, I can at least sort of understand what it means to shut down a game due to financial difficulties. But doing this so you can open up a new game that is even more money grubbing?

I don’t understand how you don’t have the resources to maintain servers for WMT but have the resources to start and develop an entirely new game. Is that the reason why the quality of this game as been dwindling for the past year and a half?

That story will stick on the dev in his next game. Why would I spend (a lot of) money on TU if it can be shut down anytime if devs lose interest in it or it isn’t profitable anymore? Nobody is going to pay a ticket for a movie that might stop halfway.

Even my 10 year old lvl80 WoW character is still alive by floating in cyberspace as a tribute to the hours of fun I had with it. Nothing will remain of the fun i had with Tyrant, it has no history, no remains. Maybe the fansite, but i doubt that will stay online if the game itself is gone. It’s such a waste, not only for the players but also for the devs who put 4 years of work in it.

This is what pisses me off the most. I put a lot of time into the game and there’ll be no remains of what I’ve done. I’ve played many MMOs in the past. All of them still going; or at least maintained to some level even after all these years. And I happily go back to them.

If you think I’m going to spend any money on your next game, you’ve got to be kidding yourself. The proof of how you treat your fanbase with this game has set you on a path of probably no return. You won’t ever reach the level of popularity you’ve achieved with WMT simply because you’ll be plagued by your history of I would say screwing over your fanbase in this game.

Everyone who ponders about whether to spend money on any of your other games will almost certainly come back and realize that the developer didn’t care about the loyalty of his players in this game. It will haunt you for the rest of your developing career and you’d deserve it.

This may be your game and you have the legal rights to do what you want with it, but your actions for this will certainly lead to your downfall. This is not a threat. It’s a prediction of what I am sure will happen.

Good luck and hope you make better decisions in the future.

If you haven’t been awarded an achievement, take a screenshot providing evidence that you have completed this. Then, in the game, go into the achievements tab. Click on ‘’Report Missing Achievement’ and fill out the form accordingly.

How am I supposed to do that when I get the base “0” error? I already submitted the base 0 error screen-shot and it was rejected (obviously).

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / New "Standard" Report Reasons

Screen-shots aren’t enough for a full out ban. You need either a video, or the mod right there to see; because screen-shots are too easily edited. And the video can’t be too choppy either.

But to do that, there needs to be an option to use the report feature when a player is not online.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / New "Standard" Report Reasons

As of now there are 5 reasons you can report people for:

  1. Hack
  2. Spam / Flood
  3. Insults
  4. Phishing
  5. Other

The first 4 are standard reasons because they are specific, but #5 is non-specific so it is not standard.

I think there are 2 more “Standard” reasons you can add to this list. I will state each one and say why:
1) Defamation / Slander: Because far too often I’ve seen mice call other mice hackers when they are not, and all they simply did was get firsts legitimately. People who call people hackers and ask everyone to ban when they are clearly not, should be considered a reason to report.

2) Vote Ban Abuse: Because people ban for stupid reasons. Eg: Because someone got first, or someone “just feels like”.

Anyway, I’d like these two to be added under the standard reasons under the Report a player section in Transformice asap.

Btw, in case you were wondering what all the “This post has been removed by an administrator or moderator” were, they were just quoting my first post on this thread. Don’t know why anyone would care or want to know but this thread is sort of pointless now, so might as well encourage more pointlessness. Right?

Half of his spiteful posts are deleted.

I can’t be bothered responding to the stupidity anymore today. Last thing I’ll criticize is that the statement “I wish this game was all WB like most other games in the world. Nobody would complain then” is one of the most idiotic statements I have read in the past few hours. I’m done here. Sorry, carry on with your idiot discussions.

How many cards do you consider being ‘well’?
Because a lot of the cards you get you will never use because they arent as good as other cards.
Doing well cant just be about having a bunch of cards sitting in your cardpool. Is someone with all the cards a greater player than someone with all the cards except JS or Egor?

As I said, since I have decided the “well” or “great” has been interpreted to me to mean that you complete your card collection and you are some how following along the same lines, it means that if you have all the cards, you are already at the top of the game when we define “well” or “great” this way.

You are right when you say that just because someone has a bigger variety of cards than someone else, that doesn’t make him a better player necessarily. I agree. However, this means that you are going by a different definition of “well” or “great”. Please tell me how you define “well” or “great” because it is obviously different to how I have interpreted the meaning in this context.

Originally posted by SubSalac:

What you’re talking about doesn’t have anything to do with competitive play. Completing achievements has very little to do with competitive play. Competitive play involves faction skirmishes of any sort, and tournaments. You also seem to misunderstand what is subjective in a game based on numbers and mechanics which appear on a continuum of strength and viability. How subjective, for instance, is the statement “Zarak is one of the best cards in the game”? I’m not trying to put words into your mouth, but it feels like you would say something like this because you criticized someone who tried to suggest that there are objective claims to be made about the strength of certain cards. The tyrant fansite is just a tool for recording progress in completing the game. You can complete the game and at the same time, be entirely non-competitive and be rather bad at it.

Refer to first part of response. We have different interpretations of what “well” or “great” means. The Tyrant Fansite determines someone who is at the top of their game by “Progress”. It shows under “Top” players that progress is very important. To get higher in the progress list, a greater collection of cards is required. In this context of the definition of “great” or “well” it certainly means that more different cards is better. However, your interpretation of “well” or “Great” is different. So please do explain what makes a player “well” or “Great”. What is your definition? Instead of telling me what is wrong with my interpretation of what “Well” or “great” is as sourced by the Tyrant Fansite, please define what you mean by “well” or “Great” instead of vaguely explaning it as some vague positive trait that is unclear of any real definition because you still haven’t told me what it means to you in this context.

As for the other part of your quote, you are incorrect in assuming that what I would say is “Zarak is one of the best cards in the game”. Because I would say that it would depend on the context of the situation. If you don’t believe me, there was a thread that was comparing vengeant and fortifier. http://www.kongregate.com/forums/65-tyrant/topics/308829-vengeant-vs-fortifier?page=1#posts-6531727 And I said that it would depend on the context, but judging by the two cards by itself, I said fortifier because without any need for rally cards it can attack still.

When you talk about how the Tyrant Fansite isn’t an accurate tool to judge how good a player is, I somewhat agree with you. However, since you still haven’t defined what “great” or “well” is, I have already said that I will use the way the Tyrant Fansite ranks players as a rough guide as to what “Great” or “well” means. And how it judges it is by the number of different types of cards a player has. And obviously you would rather use a different definition of what “Great” or “well” is. If so, please define what you mean by “Great” or “well” because you still have not defined clearly either word.

Originally posted by SubSalac:

There was simply nothing vague in FieryPhoenix’s post. All he said was you need really strong cards that tend to only be acquired through warbonding to truly succeed in the competitive aspects of the game. It’s surprising that making such a claim could be so controversial.

If that was all he said, then it’s still as vague as ever. If all he said was “you n eed really strong cards that tend to only be acquierd through warbonding to truly succeed…” and blah-blah-blah, then how is it not vague that he didn’t mention what the “really strong cards” were? If I were to say “To be good at Tyrant, you need really strong cards” and didn’t define what the strong cards are or what “good” really means, then the interpretation will be very vague because the statement is vague itself. Being “good” at Tyrant means different things. As right now, I have explained that there are different interpretations of what “well” and “Great” is. Not to mention that “strong cards” is sort of obvious. You need strong cards. Well duh. Which cards are strong? And in what context?

The problem with the guide is that it’s very vague and general. And when it does get into which cards are good and the explanation is very vague and general anyway. There are other things I don’t like about the guide, but those are the two main ones.

Game hater? If that means I hate this game so much I won’t play it after I obtain the badge, then indeed I am a game hater. Because I don’t like things that I hate. I won’t praise a game that I think sucks AND money grubs.

Also, since this has become about name-calling, have ya heard of stockholm syndrome? Because it seems like a clear majority of your posts are about defending the game. And in one post, you admit what they are doing is wrong and that they are ripping you off, yet you still defend them. Probably because you’re friends with them or something, but that’s only a guess.

Also, blatant means done very obviously or lacking in subtlety. Meaning you flat out tell me things like what I am doing now. Are you saying that “I don’t think kongregate cares if you go to a different site” is not blatant? I don’t know what you think the word blatant means, but if anything is blatant, that sentence is. Not that there is anything wrong with blatant. The problem with you being blatant is that you’re being blatantly idiotic while I am being blatantly truthful.

I don’t know what this topic is meant to discuss. Is it meant as a place where I can go to praise someone for their good luck in card drawing? Or is it to recommend a card set in HW tournaments? If it is the former, than good job I guess. If it’s the latter, then thanks for the recommendation.

No, that’s impossible. You can become quite good with your limited card pool, but you should note that some things in the games are only available via. war bonds. Therefore, it is impossible to do “well” without war bonds considering that “well” means yo have a complete card collection or have an overall “great” progress in the game.

I wouldnt say ‘well’ means having a complete card collection. Just enough cards to do top 25%/10% in standard would prob be considered well for a wb free player. But, I’m not there yet, so will probably change when I get some more cards and attempt a standard tourney.


?

^^ Agreed with RNAdouchery. Just a big “?” from me.

Firstly, you have to define the vague meaning of “well” or “great”. I defined it based on what the Tyrant Fansite says is good. And what the Tyrant Fansite charts is “Progress” and “Cards”. Meaning that if you can finish all the achievements and collect all the cards, you are doing “well” or “great”. Your definition of “well” or “great” is some subjective vague positive trait that isn’t specifically stated. In my definition of “well” or “great” based on what the Tyrant Fansite deems so, it is important to get maximum amount of different cards and complete all achievements. To do this would mean that a bigger card-pool (larger variety of cards) is best. Also, it charts who has the most collection of cards. That means that WBs is a must since a lot of cards can only be obtained with WBs.

Also, When you say “would prob be considered well for a wb free player” are you saying that WB free players and WB using players should be judged differently? Because if you are, you are not getting the point of discussion. Our discussion is about “how to be a great tyrant player” as stated in the title of the forums. It is not about how to be a great tyrant player based on how much money one is able to spend. In other words, we are talking about how to be a great tyrant player without including any irrelevant variables such as the cost of WBs. That means getting the maximum amount of achievements, cards and progress overall despite the cost of WBs. Therefore, WBs, mean a lot.

The whole idea about being a great player is taking out as much luck as possible. Magic The Gathering you can say is even more luck based (60 card deck instead of 10), but for some reason the great players keep winning the hardest tournaments (Same here in tyrant). That’s because there is a lot more skill then luck in this game.

Your very cynical in your post.

My guide led me to be one of the top tyrant players in less than 4 months time.

Is this kind of like how people thank the Bible for doing nothing? Strange how advice that would lead to being bad or sub-par with the game allows you to become a Top Tyrant player. Hm… Perhaps you didn’t become good by using this “guide” but rather you felt that it did something to help you when in reality, you became good at it either from some other source or because of yourself. Hm… Although, I will agree I suppose, that there must be some skill in being able to choose between the cards you have, but that is easily learn-able. If this is what you mean by “the majority of the skill” then I’ll agree that at least this much skill is necessary. But i’m sure you’re sort of telling me that there is more skill involved than luck, which I disagree with. :p

Being a top player in tyrant is very time consuming which is actually the real reason I’m stepping back.

If by time consuming you mean waiting for the energy bar to go up and spending the majority of the time playing the game, not playing the game or playing some other game, then yup, I agree, it is time consuming.

The other post of winning all the time was really just to troll all the trolls one more time. Hehe (Oh, how I love trolling trolls, almost as much as playing in standards).

Trolling can indeed be providing false facts and then taking it back and saying “I did that on purpose”. But I’m almost sure it’s because you made a mistake, and your intention wasn’t for trolling, but rather because you made a mistake.

I was conveying that I thought this topic was kind of stupid. There are only a few things you can spend on War Bonds. The only reason why this guy wouldn’t be able to make a good choice would be if he has a severe case of OCD where he can’t make decisions without being first told by others to do it.
