Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / Please add recruitment sub-forum

Sure, that’s not a bad idea. A lot of our posts are small comments or off the cuff remarks. But it’s a solid point.

Dear Synapticon,
Do you see the 4 top threads on forum, where it is written sticky?
You manage once to open communication threads and have them for you only to post…
Please open a 5th sticky where you will only post to inform the whole community. This stay up, everybody is informed and this avoid everybody to have to read all the mess on the forum to get access to your valuable information.
If you are looking to extend your Team with some marketing people, feel free to PM me. I would be glad glad to make me available for an interview.
Best Regards
Picci

If we stickied every post we made, the entire first page would be stickies :)

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / [To Devs] Anvil Event Time?!

Originally posted by StoicCrane:

The question is in the title. I’m eager to kick things off!

Hoping for it to be the same time as usual (Noon CST). We are still getting some issues on Android that we’re working through, but we have a workaround for them. The event will start off with old art for the Map and the initial boss, but we hope to update this sometime over the next few days.

WMT is a different game, so it has its own forums. We currently cannot do a separate Recruitment forum on Kongregate.

They intentionally cheated the devs.

Stop posting the supposed exploit. We are aware of it and believe that it does not work but are attempting to confirm. If it does, your continued posting is encouraging the exploit and you will be removed from the game.

Yo dawg. Will the public ever know. Is this the next Watergate?

Someone found an exploit that allowed Orbo cards from the original War Metal: Tyrant game to be summoned into Tyrant Unleashed. They were all bizzaro-versions with mustaches.

Could you at least let us know if you are going to work on the exploit that was just mentioned and not cover it up?

We are looking to see if it actually works :) It has been mentioned to us before by a couple players (thanks guys!) and we were not able to replicate it. We are trying one last time before we close this, but wanted to treat it as dangerzone stuff just in case.

Yes, issues pushing to Android, a bit out of our control. We’re doing our best to remedy them. Apologies for the timing problem.

Sorry, no matching topic was found.


But seriously, how long does it take to type some simple reply DEVs… I know you read this, and probably delete it.

Ill be posting on the WMT forums by the end of the week.

We are now looking more deeply into specific cases of the card salvage refund. This will take considerably longer but we hope to have another update sometime next week.

It’s been 7 days since this was posted, and we’re about halfway through “next week.” Will we recieve an official update within the next couple of days here, or is it taking a bit longer than anticipated?

We’ve found a few incorrect returns so far and have started the first round of card removal. This is definitely a time consuming process but we are working through it.

20k gold and war rewards that our guild earned is adequate compensation if that ends up being the case. Thank you devs for continuing to work on this issue. I look forward to playing Tyrant again soon.

Apologies again for your inability to play. It’s out of our control for the moment but that doesn’t make it any better for you. Thank you for your patience!

Originally posted by RSM777:

How are we going to apply for the compensation?

We have a list of players on LG G2. You shouldn’t have to apply for anything. This will take us a bit (there are ~50 people on this device) but we’ll keep you updated.

We’re still waiting to hear back if the issue has been fixed. We will keep you updated. Everyone affected by the Verizon LG G2 outage will receive 20k gold – this is equivalent to an expected amount of Gold earned from the Guild War event. We really appreciate you all being patient while we work to get this fixed.

Issue doesn’t effect me, but they should also receive all the rewards their guild qualified for if they were unable to play for all/part of war and didn’t have the necessary war points for rewards as a result.

We’re considering this as well.

If any of you with Verizon LG G2 devices know how to use logcat to track errors, you may be able to find and send us the errors related to Tyrant and the crash. That would be IMMENSELY helpful as it may contain the information we need to fix the bug (since we are unable to replicate it). If anyone is interested in some debugging with us, it could speed things along quite a bit.

Rupert – unfortunately it is likely we won’t be able to fix this before the Guild War ends. We cannot reproduce the error on our side and thus cannot fix it. We are working on it throughout the weekend and will continue to do so until it is fixed.

Unfortunately we have tested Tyrant on two more Verizon LG G2 devices and are still unable to replicate the problem. Please note we are aware that this is a real problem – it is just making it difficult for us to isolate the error for a fix.

Our best guess was that it was related to a Verizon update had pushed out just before players had started reporting errors. Note that this started happening before our last update, which is why we believe that it’s related. Of course, we are not ruling out an issue on our end and we are continuing to search for the issue. I will keep you updated.

Very cool! Do you think you’ll have some stuff ready to roll out near the end of guild war? That’s usually the most ‘boring’ week, as there is literally nothing to do for a vet after collection.

There will be a new PvE event starting next week. The Enclave is ready for you.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / [To Devs] Just looking for some info on new content

Some hints:
-The new Fusions are still being developed but will be new cards fused using cards from the Base set :)

-The PvP/Artifact revamp idea is still early in development, but the goal is to drastically simplify Artifacts and add exclusive Artifact cards. The details are very much in flux, but our current idea is something along the lines of
a) reduce the # of artifacts down…possibly even down to 1 that you collect multiples of. it’s VERY hard to keep track of the different types of artifacts at the moment.
b) add a time limit after collecting artifacts. yes, i know, sad face, but…
c) increase the quality/drop rate of more rare cards, and
d) add exclusive new cards that can be earned from the top levels of the artifact collection

I know a few players have mentioned not wanting artifacts to change, but we find that VERY few people use them in the current system, and we want to make this a very up-front goal in PvP.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed / What things do you guys dislike about the update?

Yellow is much more visible than the red colors, especially on phones. It’s different, but a handful of games do this for similar reasons.

The status effect display was almost impossible to show on the previous card info tooltip, because it was so small. With the new card info popup it might be a lot more readable, so we’ll put that back on the list.
