lol, that protest was a long time ago. Give it something like 4 stars so you can join another boycott when it comes.

Topic: Tyrant / [#losingiswinning] can we explain this hashtag for people who do not understand it?

…and that’s basically it. It was mostly a matter of timing. To declare yourself the winner immediately after you lost the factor that you’re claiming made you the winner led to #losingiswinning. Essentially, it’s a simple act of trolling that got overblown by someone who can’t handle being made to look foolish. It was spurred by his inability to accept defeat and his entertaining response to the trolling.

That’s comparing 2 different victories as one, or he never lost the factor you’re talking about.

Point 1 – For example: You can lose in war, but win morally.

It’s not about 2nd person being not able to accept defeat. It was about opposite side being unable to accept other definition of victory and trying to shove their own in him by force.
He left his opinion about what win also is, they get mad becouse of logic:
There can’t be 2 winners, there can’t be 2 types of win. We’re winners, so no-one else is, hurr durr.

There’s no general definition of victory in this case.

Point 2 – Absolutely false. Claimed factor was never lost.
(Your point 3… remove “the game” and it’ll be ok I guess, unless you builded time machine and changed past)
To distinguish – Aen’s factor of win is: “Had spot 1 for (relatively) long time (in past)”.
How was it lost? It wasn’t… “had” =/= “had and still has”

I have nothing to do with this thread, but yeasy you should explain the three points you are talking about before proving them wrong.

Stots, this is not harassment. If you lock this, I will flip apeshit.

The Holy God-Moderators of Kongregate have already made their position on this clear:

Originally posted by Stots:

Calling out users or factions for cheating, real or imagined, is harassment and will not tolerated. If you have legitimate concerns, send an email or bug report to the developers. If they choose not to answer, then you’ll have to get used to cheaters and exploiters – consistently bringing it into the forums will result in a ban.

Link loops back to this thread…fake Stots post?

Topic: Tyrant / [Issue] People who put private raids on the fansite

lolwut, did you reform or something? Anyways, you do sound sincere now so I’ll give you a helpful tip: When starting a private raid, post your raid also in your fansite profile and set it to private.

A long time ago, I once tried adding a private Jotun raid (because I wanted to see if it would fail or not) but it turns out the guy had already posted it in fansite as a private raid and I was redirected to that page. The raid failed.

I used to be less trusting, still a bit suspicious sometimes, but I’ve seen so many awesome people in this game, I have kinda reformed – also when I led AoD I had to be less trusting, you have more to lose when you lead a faction.

Anyway, I do sometimes do that for longer raids where I want to be able to track it, like ESoK, but EIP is so short you don’t need a visual tracker, and I have had one fail which failed cos it was set private as well.

TT

Yeah, it seems these days that EiP is one of the “small” raids that is tough to do with a small group but gets quickly swarmed as soon as it is open…like Epic Jotun, Arachis and Karkinos. If you want to have successful raids either micromanage the thing or just don’t let the swarms get to you like water off a duck’s back.

Bumping this

which is totally pointless imho

I find that I don’t have to look down the iron sights if I have Kedr damage boosted (FMJ Ammunition on Assault Tree), which saves a lot of time and takes advantage of Kedr’s high mobility to move around while shooting – very difficult for opponents to hit you when they’re lagging. But if I do spray without damage boost, it’s very rare to kill a full health person that way (usually have to luck out on headshots).

But I’m new to this, so feel free to correct me.

Topic: Tyrant / Can anyone recommend a good strategy or card game?

Originally posted by ladolcevita:

yea contract wars is pretty good, i’m enjoying the RPG element of it.

Contract wars is pretty P2w. You end up playing against people who have spent lots to unlock great silenced guns. When I play with my game-won sniper-rifle I get killed.

I am MUCH preferring the shooter “Ballistic”. It’s both quicker and more interesting, and far less P2W. You can have a good time playing for free, unlike CW.

Oh yeah…sniper rifles. The sucky part about Contract Wars sniper rifles is that they are loud, inaccurate, and rarely kill in one hit. This is especially true for the first green one. Even when I crouch, look down the scope, hold down shift and shoot a stationary target it’s such a bad shot…I learned this so much the hard way, lol.

It turns out that to be any good at sniping, you need to dedicate a lot of points to the right side of the sniper skill tree (look for accuracy boost skills). It’s too bad I had already spent most of it in the left side of the assault tree to get the damage boost…oh well.

Originally posted by JMCrooks:

Anyone out there have anything decent to play online?

I’ve tried Hearthstone… meh. It’s ok, but the game moves so glacially that I can’t play more than a single match before I get bored. Tried Kingdoms, tried Elements, tried Rise of Mythos…. it’s all so so boring.

Anyone got anything good?

Hey fellow former Yugioh BAM player, guess you got tired of their crap real quick too, huh?

Anyways, since godfield is dead and that was the only non-cash grab card game I know of, I recommend playing uno on a smartphone. Multiplayer can get intense since it’s with real people.

NOT a card game but kongregate wise lately I’ve been playing a lot of Contract Wars. With various modes it does a pretty good job simulating CoD (camper fights) Halo (run and gun) and Counter Strike (lay the bomb/defuse it) it gets pretty amazing.

Please make it more obvious as to which clan you have applied to in the clan list. I have applied to a clan a last week and still not accepted. I have gone through the list of clans many, many times and still cannot find which clan I applied to so that I can withdraw my request.

Originally posted by FlyingPachyderm:

Hey Candyman, thanks for taking the time to listen to us, but there is quite a bit of corruption going on and we would appreciate it if you discussed with the synap devs what can be done about this. For example, here are some really obvious cheaters, but they are still playing:

23 days ago, I reported a very obvious tournament cheater. Guy is still playing tournys.

LAST YEAR I reported an obvious army controlled by the same guy. They have moved to a new faction and are still at large. (Note: last activity is today.)

While I do have the hard badge for Tyrant (made it to mission 66ish, woo!), I really haven’t played any PvP at all, so I’m afraid I can’t personally verify whether or not this looks like cheating. This is something that would be good to send to the devs, as they can look into the actual game info and verify this kind of thing.

Then you have played in a faction, remember which one you were with? :)

For the case last year, I think you should remember that fighting in a faction meant that the players your faction had to score more wins than the other faction, and having an army of accounts means you can make all your accounts fight at the same time when the other faction has to try and reach out to whoever is online to win.

For the first case, it’s much simpler. It’s a TOURNAMENT. If you have GeoffA1 constantly beating the dummy account GeoffA2, then that is cheating in the most obvious and simplest form.
