Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Stallers in Tournaments

Im going to bump this because people still try stall victories out of people.

I don’t understand the mentality behind that. If you can stall, I can stall; it’s a matter of finding something else to do to pass the time. If you are going to lose this match for whatever reason, might as well surrender asap and start the next match to lose more get back to where you were.

It becomes a problem with organized stalling and boosting with alts/friends, but that’s hardly worth the effort to do continuously unless most of the process is automated.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Guide] Universal Quest Deck

For Sean’s 97.32% deck, you can swap Mayumi* for Gaia* (other Heal All Righteous commanders make a noticeable difference as well, but it affects win rate) to improve the rate against Draco Genesis.

Gaia* also negligibly helps against Impenetrable if you really care about it.

It is still going to be Valor whether you like it or not, as Pierce is to Armor, Anti-Air is to Flying, etc..
That Valor cards may not one-hit summoners/survive long enough to change the tide of the battle alone is an issue with card stats.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Spoiler] New raid cards

As it’s a new raid without the Epic prefix, it could be more of a mid-game raid that has a quirky counter.

The Protect All X for timer X is kind of interesting to note, and might suggest that the battleground could be United Front or Artillery Strike v2.0.

I’m liking the flavours of these new raids.

PLZ, SOME ORIGINALITY.

Radio Officer will just get Mimic from commander

That would be a good thing. There’s no support for Raiders in the deck, so it just helps your own Thunderers.

MT uses augment to HT and RO (HT doesn’t tribute augment because it just finished its turn)
RO uses heal/protect to HT and MT (HT activates Tribute but do not tribute back heal/protect to RO)

If I recall correctly, positions do not matter for these two skills.

I tested this, and Tribute was able to Tribute Heal and Protect (with the visual issue). Perhaps you saw Tribute proccing from a different unit while the 50%s failed with the Radio Officer?

It usually works, but the formatting broke because you exceeded a number of characters. You’ll have to use HTML to reformat it.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Grimclaw's weaken is bugged

The Mammoth Tank isn’t supposed to die to the top decks on the fansite. The healer is there to sit in front of it and tank it while the Grimclaws flank.

If you really want to get rid of it, bring Disease and hope it’s positioned to hit before it dies.

Actually if GW were truly thinking of the better good of the final product, you guys woulda merged into MS, who had around 1k points higher than you at the time :) But why that didn’t happen was pride, loss of LP etc.

That may be true for a complete merger, but both factions are still intact.
It saves the trouble of kicking inactive/poorer performing members.

Isn’t that what they did with Unleashed?

It also looks more like an arithmetic exercise when predicting what’s going to happen on the board.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Fear] What Will The Next Gen Fear Look Like? 2/8/2 [Attack Skill] [Defensive Skill] [Activation/Trigger]?

Fear rush may be more efficient, but it would be more interesting to see Fear played as support to put in front of the enemy’s low attack support cards.

Your choice is in deciding when you log in. But would refreshing be able to change the outcome if you somehow knew what was behind the box?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Discussion] Legendary Gorrus

It seems that Gorrus’ role transitions from offense to defensive support when comparing classical decks to the current meta. It’s great at bringing fatty fat to the board, but is a bit undependable if you want to use it to flank as your winning condition.

So am I. But now comma/spaces/Upper case/etc are not taken into account. So you can type Kogoth, the Consumer as kogoththeconsumer.

You also can change the xml to temporarily circumvent them.

Sim win/loss percentages vary on what you draw in order and what the cpu draws. Good deck btw got lucky with my shard purchases of FP and got realm devourer, but doesn’t its augment affect Xeno only?

Friendly skills target BT when assaults are Infused, so it will always Augment an Overseer when attacked.

This is completely false since the dozer regen is split up 90% for your opponent and 10% for you.

Am I not the opponent some of the time as well?

Not when you’re looking.

They can also cheese it and increase raid capacity. It can solve the problem of 0 damage, but may hurt organized damage claiming.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Dev] Off the cuff - New player progression

Tyrant isn’t really designed to introduce new players into the game. There’s a better chance for player retention with introductory level faction play, which currently depends heavily on the community members to find, recruit, and train new members.

That, and reworking some systems you have going on such as energy cost for missions, reward expiration, purchasing/selling options, etc.. It would be great if you could gracefully make drastic changes where needed (i.e. old players do not have to redo “nerfed”/modified content).

PS I am probably not going to follow through with sharing my UI ideas if you were counting on that.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Spoiler] New achievements (?) + Fervor buff (or nerf)

It is a buff, but mainly serves a purpose of stun support. Given a 3 card hand, it’s another one of those cards that can turn the tide if put in the correct position, but may not be versatile enough to work as well in others. Multiples may be effective against decks that rely on attrition through assaults.

I actually liked the old version of Cadaver Fiend. The new one also good, though.

Originally posted by Moraku:

Interestingly enough, the reaction of the “Fervor buff” ranges from “useless” to “OP”. That’s going to send mixed signals to the DEVs.

When has the community ever had a sense of balance?
