This is the 3rd time I’ve seen this message the last few days.

What happened, is kong having issues?

I do too :) The fact is we simply don’t have as much time (obviously) to dedicate to WMT these days, so it’d be great if it could be light touch on our side.

By the way, if I sent you a slightly patched packs.xml right now to fix Upgrade I bug (it includes the new upgraded cards), could you apply it? Or is it intended behaviour to have the new upgrades in it?

Go ahead and send it. I can review.

Seems like it was fixed very recently (perhaps yesterday?), so never mind. Sorry for asking you about that!

Well, obviously if the developers are unable to choose a group of players, we could democratically elect a group of players


Yeah. For option 2. Easy. Why not pick the ones in ‘nomination’ thread?
They would have to agree tho, as it’ll result in them being unable to submit anything.


…but If devs aren’t going to be part of it, then none of options is going to work.
Every option require dev involvement, who else is going to put cards in game?


It’s more about my not clear statement.
By “Devs choose”, I mean ‘accept and acknowledge’ our nominations.

The issue here is, Devs are prone to not answering for weeks. If we need to interact with them too much, it will end with this event going to a grinding halt.
I would rather the community come up with how this should go, and once all is finished, we basically submit a cards.xml, tournaments.xml and packs.xml to the Devs for them to apply in-game. That is the only thing we need the Devs for – we should do everything else ourselves IMO, or nothing will happen.
Simple – devs do as little as possible.

Keep in mind that losses are expensive when you get higher up in the ratings. You need to consistently keep huge winning streaks.

2+3 sounds reasonable.

Though “How should it look” is somewhat misleading, 1st thought was card pack cover, 2nd was pack setup, like whether or not it’ll have uncommons like the old packs or be completely rare/legend like the upgrade pack.

Yeah, the title is definitely misleading.

2 gets my vote.

EDIT: But I’m not sure if developers should be the ones that pick the people. I suggest that ralkk does that (as she has direct connections with devs, she might as well be some kind of “project leader”) unless she minds, and posts a list of people, and the community give their OK or veto for the persons in question.

its possibly that it was so long ago that they might not have records of solidsnake’s sold cards. unless the fansite has records of it still maybe. But im a computer noob so….

In that case, I suggest a compensation in WB form, since he spent money on the game and lost bought cards.

TIL that LDV can’t count.

:D

For starters, here’s how you count:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.

I know it’s a bit tricky but you can do it!

Personally i dont think the design a card contest would work for a pack. Packs have tourneys, so they have to be balanced for tourney play. Along with having cards that are “stand alone great”, there has to be cards that are niche/roll players. The cards that come out of the contest are generally just OP.

Pretty sure it would still be subject to the devs testing.

Do you know how current dev testing work?

  • Devs design some cards
  • Devs release it to a closed beta group consisting of 2 people
  • 1, or sometimes 2, of the persons give feedback
  • Devs incorporate the feedback as card changes 50% of the time, based on a coin flip of each suggested change
  • Cards are released

Smogon’s “Create a Pokemon Project” is a fairly good example of a massively collaborative game content creation project,and that is coming from a community that’s far more populous than our own!

The basic idea in play here is that the community would have to agree on a step-by-step process with which to gradually develop the card pack. You certainly wouldn’t have immediate final proposals, but would rather have step by step topics where players vote on things like wait time distributions, new skill mechanics, the general ‘functions’ of cards, etc. Perhaps, if you want some order of hierarchy, you could have an initial bout of “project leader” nominations, with the democratic voice of the forum making the final sayso within the structure of the topics in question.

Here is how I thought it would work

  • Whoever gets nominated get together, discuss suggestions etc, polish them a bit
  • A thread is made, a bit like the spoiler threads of today
  • Players give feedback about cards that are potentially too broken or too UP, etc
  • Modifications are made, and new feedback is needed
  • Rinse and repeat until cards are OK.

Voting wont work. And why is this? Because our community isn’t big enough.
Smogon is a very big community, and thus can live with suggesting several cards above the limit and eliminate through voting. That wont work as well here, because we have too few people who are good deckbuilders (i.e. too few who don’t just ask someone else to create the deck for them – like fansite, etc.) unlike Smogon.

You sure you don’t have one in your inventory?

Nope, he doesn’t.

http://home.fiq.se/tyrant/ownedcards_14305178.txt this is his cardpool – try searching for “Pip, Epic” and you’ll see how many he has.

(And yes it’s legit, I just wanted to give you a more convenient method to check rather than going into your db – but if you doubt me, feel free to do that anyway)

Every card listed as (0) is owned but sold, upgraded, or otherwise removed.

Of course, since profile lookups are cached, any ninja-give will only appear for me personally in about 20min. If that’s what you did, all right then.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / [Player's Pack] Collaborator Nominations

I nominate the following people:
- SeanDougherty86
Under the basis that he has contributed directly to devs earlier regarding card balance feedback, and is a good deck builders when he tries

- HarlequinD
For being a great asset of decks in my faction, and apparently is also very helpful in TU in a top f2p guild from what I’ve heard

- Sharigon64
For being a good tournament player and know synergies, deckbuilding, etc, in the most complex format in Tyrant – sealed tournaments

- Warranty_void
- JoinTheFaction
- Mrmastermonster
- Hanchen
As earlier winners in yeasy’s “create your own card” contest – creating cards and getting full support by the entire community clearly shows some card making skills

Please no. I really don’t like the old arena :(


But you prefer waiting 50 mins for a fight or using alts to boost your ranking up?
Great logic there.

Of course not. But you do have a point regarding it being a huge PITA to get to platinum III, but this should be solved seperately.

Allow player to turn off auto midfight.

Not that simple of a task, even if it would be nice.

They can do it in TU, surely it won’t be that hard to redo here.

Actually yeah it would… as soon as you hit fight when auto is pressed it automatically calculates and finishes the fight, instantly. To fix that would require coding changes… not going to happen.

And they can do it in TU cuz…?

Auto in TU is implemented as the client automatically picking each card you play when relevant. This is also why skipping battles during auto gives a lagspike in TU.

Topic: General / [Dev] Refund concerns

Honestly I’m very surprised that this has allowed to continue as long as it has – surely Devs must have noticed huge sources of income just magically disappear? Or is it Google and Apple that takes the money hit? I highly doubt the latter, it would be ridiculous, but I just don’t understand how Devs never noticed this before.

They don’t – Google and Apple do though.
