Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Monsters' Den Chronicles] Any way to move chars?

Warrior Captain’s have a skill called Change Formation that lets you move troops in the middle of battle. Otherwise I don’t know of any.

Topic: Tyrant / Elements, Kongai or Tyrant ?

I’ve played maybe 5 rounds on Kongai so I can’t say anything about it.

As for Tyrant vs Elements. I’d say Elements wins without a doubt. Developer actually tries to make every card viable. Doesn’t rely on power creep. Doesn’t limit your playtime through an energy system. Actually takes ideas from the community. The grind is excessive but it has plenty of things to make up for that flaw and once you do have a solid card-pool (Even not upgraded) you can have plenty of fun just building decks.

For Tyrant, Synapticon made it quite good as far as game mechanics go. Small deck sizes with rapid play style and potential for different tiers of power. Unfortunately I feel like they messed up everything beyond that. Cards, missions, raids, power creep, prices… All adds up to make it at best mediocre.

All I can read is “When autoplay is active, your cards…” Everything else is off the interface.

Topic: Tyrant / About katana's clothing, why devs?

Because giving a named character appearance concealing clothing takes away from the recognition factor. If Katana looked like the rest of them would you know who she was?

Seems to me the menu at the bottom was an odd choice. Makes more sense at the top.

Topic: Tyrant / reason for new players to buy hw pack over gold ;p

And what exactly would a prism bring to the table? You already have cleanse and protect from imperial refuge and heal from signal towers.

Problem is new players mostly have problems due to card pool and gold gets them a cardpool that they can use on just about everything. Homeworld only becomes needed later on as the cards faced get more and more powerful. Also the money spent on homeworld isn’t guaranteed to produce a patrol cruiser which could further frustrate the problem. And that many xeno forcefields could take a lot of time to gather.

Topic: Tyrant / Cards you wish you could use

Mawcor. Give that thing a little more health and OH BABY!
Juggernaut/Anvil: The two brothers of armored crushing. Shame neither of them have enough health to be useful.
Venemous Raptor: Flurry + poison is super nice.
Jet Trooper: This thing was amazing for awhile, heal 3 was a godsend. 2 hp though is kind of problematic.
Howitzer: Swipe + crush? I like.
Mobile Command: Premise is nice but I would like to see it show a little more for its bulk. Protect maybe?
Safeguard: Drop the timer to 1 and you have a pretty decent card for earlier decks which would help the whole reward from newbie raid deal.
Captor: Anti righteous king. But too weak to do it effectively.
Soot Launcher: That 1 atk is holding it back. Same deal with cannon walker.
Hades: Looks good but fails alot. =(

Could probably come up with more if I start looking.

Topic: Tyrant / [Petition] Confirmation popup for Special Promos

This has been a complaint for a really long time. That and the fact that the cancel button is over the buy for the central promo card. Devs haven’t done anything about it or as far as I’m aware even said they’re going to fix it. Devs here aren’t interested in making the best game possible. They’re interested in making a game that takes whatever it can get and they add as many updates as they can to keep it that way.

Topic: Tyrant / New Expansion Set : Phobos

Action cards might go bye bye with the “when played” effects. Unless of course they only activate after prior cards have made their turn in which case a lot of them will just be ineffective.

Topic: Tyrant / Congrats to all noobs who threatened to quit

In the end it’s still the devs who make the changes. Attacking the complainers does nothing to solve any problems.

Topic: Tyrant / Homeworld as model for future expansions?

I like the pricing idea of packs like homeworld. I would prefer the packs be something like 50k instead of 60k but I doubt that will happen. I think if synapticon wants to make themselves appeal to the broader spectrum of players they should have the gold option on all future packs. It’ll make people who don’t pay feel like they can continue and eventually get good cards, but the convenience factor will keep warbonders paying for being constantly up to date with the newest expansion.

I have 2 words for you. Beacon, Raksha.

And, patrol cruiser, structures, elite diver. There’s a few cards that would be immensely useful against this sort of deck.

One key problem with this deck is it’s less effective against surges. A lot of airstrikes means one will often be dropped that first turn which means bye bye airstrike.

Topic: Tyrant / petition - MORE standard please

Big no. Standards are as far as I’m concerned too common. They make for uninteresting battles and rely solely on cardpool.

Topic: Tyrant / Rebalancing Legendaries/Uniques

While I agree on the need to rebalanced a lot of cards, I feel like many of the buffs in this topic are not the way to do it. Many of the buffs just don’t seem appropriate for the cards and while I would love to post my own opinions on each one, I simply don’t have the time right now. Still, the devs do need to adjust some cards at least and the sooner they realize that the sooner tyrant will be that much better of a game.

Topic: Tyrant / Question: If the exchange rate were better, would you spend any/more money on this game?

It’s been said many times. Yes, the price of warbonds is too high. The only reason I have warbond cards is due to free kreds. I wouldn’t ever dream of spending actual money on this game because to make a difference I would have to shell out far more cash than I would like. An online game like this shouldn’t need $50-60 (price of a full retail game) every time a pack comes out just to get some of the cards. Maybe if a pack was a dollar or less I might consider it worthwhile to actually buy a few but unfortunately that’s not the case so everything I buy I get for free.

Topic: Tyrant / [Brainstorming] Size of new sets

Honestly what would help sets more than making more cards per set is improving the sets as a whole. As is about 80-90% of all the cards in a set are cards that see no use because well, they’re useless past the early game. The number of rares and especially legendaries that have next to no use need to change. Cards like Loki’s Scion, Radiant Dawnbringer, Beholder, even Templar and Goliath don’t deserve the legendary status as far as i’m concerned. Helios as well in comparison to everyone’s favorite apollo is just pathetic as a legendary. For the rares I won’t even start. There are too many to count that just don’t have an effective use or are so grossly overshadowed by another rare (or in some cases uncommon and there’s probably at least one common) that you can’t help but laugh. Cards just need to be made to suit their rarity and we shouldn’t have packs where we touch only a handful of the cards.

As for the old skills problem. Make it so a card either has to have a completely new combination of old skills, do it in a better way than previous packs or incorporate a new skill for it to make it into a new pack.

Topic: Tyrant / Suggestions

It would be interesting if tourneys could be switched up to allow for different variations based on card rarirty. For example having a tourney where you could only use common cards, or one where you could only use uncommons. Or have a mix that’s something like legendary+uncommon so people have to find different decks to work with. At the same time there could be sealed silver and bronze tourneys that would just add interest to the current set. Overall it would just be fun if tourneys had a few different setups than the typical ones.

Yes, the energy costs will probably go up after the weekend but that doesn’t mean we can’t still grind the heck out of this mission while the energy is so low.
