I don’t see it.

What’s wrong with clones? As long as they’re not using Synapse assets, they can make a clone of the game. Are you going to go report the Tyrant-but-with-Vampires too?

Much wow. I can hold more SP. Too bad I don’t get enough that holding SP is a problem.

I would buy it if:

  • I could repeatedly buy it – no limits to how many times.
  • If it cost ~2500 Gold instead of $$$.
  • The contents of the pack were changed to contain three cards with at least one Epic.


so nothing like the elite pack?.

Wow, you’re a genius. :D Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying.

Do people not understand that card rarity was obviously not meant to be a measure of power but a distribution/supply limit mechanism?

The mere presence of cards such as Inferno Demon, Xillanail, Shock Disruptor, and Lurker Behemoth are indicative of this.

You can argue that the state of the base set correlated rarity and power initially, but it has obviously evolved over the course of many months.

Why not directly confront me instead of being passive?

Yes, you’re right, rarity has no bearing on a card’s power – wait! No, you’re wrong. Commons and Rares are shit – compared even to Epics. If you want to cherry pick, sure, Epics like Tiamat are pretty shitty right now, but that’s on the Devs for not keeping a good balance.

Rarity does give players a hint to how strong a card should be. Epics ought to be plentiful and moderately powered. Legends ought to be harder to get a hold of, but more powerful than Epics in a general sense.

As stated above – Devs are releasing two similar cards, but one happens to be an event reward. Since it is F2P-obtainable, they have to go and release an equal-if-not-stronger P2W Epic for all the whales to masturbate furiously over.

Someone is excited for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Best name ever. 10/10 card designers.

Oh look, a piece of shit F2P reward. I can barely believe it.

Seriously, compare it to that EPIC Xeno that is almost definitely P2W. What do you see?

So far, I see a lot of bullshit.

  • The ‘lower’ rarity card is clearly more powerful. I don’t care if it’s a Quad versus a Duo, this shit is stupid.
  • Same Evade, Same Poison.
  • Legendary has more health. Jam and 2-Timer more than makes up for the lack of 6HP.
  • The Epic is better in every other way.

Quit buying this shit and maybe they’ll take the cries for balance more seriously.

You are an ignorant, uneducated neanderthal.

WMT didn’t die because it was F2P. It didn’t die because it was unprofitable. It definitely didn’t die just because the Devs handed out one free Promo card every month. It died, and Synapticon openly admitted, because they stopped paying attention to it. The analogy they used, from their own mouth, was that they neglected WMT like a pet left at home while the family went on a trip.

It was the lack of sincerity, communication and eventually community toxicity. We became spiteful, possibly event envious and hateful toward the company due to how much attention Tyrant Unleashed, this obvious cash-cow, mobile-trending game was getting. It was a piece of shit – a pale ghost of what WMT was, and yet it was getting more updates and more players than WMT ever had in it’s lifetime.

There are many other factors as well, such as pressure from Kongregate admins for Synapse to pursue a more profitable path – one that ultimately spelled doom for WMT – as it isn’t nearly as profitable as TU and GlobalAss.

Edit: The moral of my story is: Do not speak if you do not know what you’re saying.

PR: that is a rather pathetic cop-out towards some informative links. you need a nap.

Indeed, I did. I still visited them – I just hating being a copycat. It’s fun to figure things out on my own. You think BW gave me surge decks during my time with them? lolno

Chalice and Odin were pretty amazing back then. nostalgia

Is there a limit on how many threads you can self-lock in 24 hours?

I was sure you’d understand basic arithmetic, Sigha. I guess I over estimate your intelligence sometimes.

Considering I can only make a thread every ten minutes, and if we exclude all my previous threads, then the limit is 144 threads in 24 hours.

If they start making alot of updates to WMT (even those where the players did the effort), it starts to put into question the “end of life” status of WMT.

Something to consider then. :P

WMT’s case: QS is still there since Nexus, d00d…
TU’s case: Evade is there since day one, d00d, and Tiamat++ was once useful here.

#UpgradeTiAtlaPred

Tiamat was useful far into Homeworld, even. Awakening made it impossible to run.

Tiamat was hardly ever useful here. When it was useful, that was back when Alaric would stripe the Evade 1/ Evade 2 off of cards. Now everything has Evade 4/5/6. Jesus, how are you supposed to kill a structure with Evade 4?

Thank you for your apparently off-topic, derogatory, flaming or all around hateful comment. The super edgy teen club is over there.


I think a good way to do ELO would be this:

  • Everyone starts at 0.
  • I have no idea how to specifically match players yet. Maybe just a free-for-all tournament where everyone fights everyone, but never the same person twice, or something.
  • Gaining or losing ELO will be done one point at a time. If you win, you gain 1 ELO, if you lose, you lose 1 ELO. You can drop into the negatives.
  • You will only gain or lose ELO to someone who is within 10% of your current ELO. At 100 ELO, you will gain or lose ELO from people within 90 to 110 ELO.
  • You will not gain ELO for beating someone at 11% lower than you, nor lose ELO from losing to someone at 11% higher than you.
  • Beating someone at 11% or more higher than you will grant you 2 ELO instead of 1. The reason being that you probably had to work for it… shrug
  • Make it a week-long event. Dispense rewards for all players that are not super special. Shards, Gold, Premium currency, etc.
  • Reset the score and start again.

I’m rambling. Whatever. Let’s discuss it.

They still did it. :(

They already do the upgrades. What do you expect them to do, Marshal. Octo-fusions? What a joke.

First, do not compare box cards to base set ones. That’s why people pay real money for em, for being more powerful.

I’d agree with this if all players could get the box set cards. Since not everyone can, or wants to toss $2000 USD at this game every week, it is worth comparing them.

Second, Gamut is only playable in a mono imp and its less durable than Aegis.

Irrelevant to the point I’m trying to prove, but I can see what you mean. Regardless, Aegis is largely replaced by almost any recent Heal All release, that one was just the closest I found to Aegis.

Third, Ranger is a quad and its not stronger than an Inferno Demon, they are pretty even.

But, Tiamat is shit, and has been shit ever since Evade came out. #BuffBaseSet

Fourth and last, a card is never got buffed after its release and as devs said many times before they don’t think a revamp of old fusions.

Not true. When they released quad fusions, that was a buff to those cards. A buff that came with a cost to the players, but still a buff. Further, in the history of Tyrant, dating back into WMT, they have indeed buffed old cards.

It was good when it was first released, then dropped out of the meta. A simple +1 / +1 brought it back once more. It was a solid card for two or three years, even. Holy hell! Meanwhile, here in TU, we can’t get a single base-set card to last a week before a box card blows it out of the water.

Don’t know why I bothered posting. WMT is going to sink in less than a year and this game will have Strike All 10 on box-set Rares by then.

I seriously worry about you Synapse Gaming. How can you expect a game to last a decade when you can’t even make a single card that lasts a week?
