Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / SimTyrant - The simulator that runs from your browser!

I would support some kind of this ofc. Could even help out somehow in the future.

I’m just a little sick of synapticon after i realized that they are using the same WMT art for TU, so it seems unlikely that they will ever let a successful fangame use it.

look this thread: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2437-general-tyrant-discussion/topics/435401-to-devs-wmt-fangame?page=1

also, you may want to speak with demoncore.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / SimTyrant - The simulator that runs from your browser!

hello unknown poster with 1 post and an account from okt 2010.

the answer is: pretty hard.
ok, you can make the game engine (both simulators already do this), but Synapticon won’t make their art free for us to use. Unless you just take the card and game pictures and make your own local game, you’d risk legal problems.

But, its an online game.. playing on your own won’t do.
So, you got to have a server somewhere so that people can play together, and you’d have to write that code yourself, and update the databases with all the player’s current data if possible.

And even if you did that, the game ’d still be illegal and at the mercy of Synapticon lawyers if they ever decide its a threat to their games…

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Quest powercreep rating by pack

aegis (iirc) apex, hydra, tremor wyrm, goliath etc.

I used the non-upgraded versions of the respective cards – upgraded cards are marked with a (*). However, Standard Packs are certainly skewed as new cards have later been added to it – I didn’t account for that and use the packs as they are available now.

did you also account for these old buffs: http://tyrant.40in.net/kg/news.php?id=140
e.g. used the old unupgraded 2/2/2 hydra rather than the current unupgraded 3/4/2 hydra?

if you did, it should be giving a measure of the powercreep in packs when they where released.
if you did not, it measures how packs currently compare with each other.

i’m guessing the latter, since the HW pack rates lower than standard, which is definitely not true pre-buff.

what part of “tyrant is closing Aug 2015; migrate to TU if you wish” you people do not understand?

hard to see them putting any effort to WMT.

EDIT – After seeing who was the OP, i take back all the above :P

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Would you play or pay for a CCG if... ?

lots of work to make it, but if you are up to it:

no problem here with or without art.. community would help if the game were free..
and if the game is good enough, there may be other ways than images to do art. (ascii art, elaborate explanations.. etc)

i do like elaborate descriptions in a card

i don’t like much the idea of crafting system if it is implemented in a “skinner’s box” mentality. (seem like that the way you describe it)
Generally if you go skinner’s box mentality, i won’t go near the game…. Tyrant is the only such game i’ve played regularly, and i don’t wish for another.

Yes to live PvP (as long as you solve the idlers and surrender spam problems – they are fixable)
But i’d think that the player should also have an option of playing non-live, in case there are not enough people of his cardpool level online.

“Sealed tourney” mechanics are very nice, be sure to keep such a functionality.

No comment on card gathering system, as long as its balanced.

PS. not willing to pay either way, although if the game is amazing && i have a steady income this could change

nice game

Stavros is a Greek name, but not a mythological one.
Hierophant, Myrmidon are from ancient Greece, but again not mythological.
Mythologicals:
Greek: Artemis (tank), Aegis, Chimera, Cerberus, Chronos, Poseidon, Hydra, Phoenix (Egyptian too iirc), Titan, Taloc (search for Talos)
Norse: Valkyrie, Ragnarok

stopping here to let people search for the rest :)

@PR: Working on your own with no dev or player backing is just the think to make new packs you know…

oh, and i never thought i’d completely agree with super, but as it happens, i do:

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Player's Pack 2] The Re-Packening.

yeasy, you are wrong in so many ways, that i guess you are just trolling…
pretty easy to say that you can do it better, pretty hard to actually do it better.

well, nvm…. but i can see this project not going anywhere with such negative attitudes.

imagine blaming the people that made one of the best packs in WMT history for not doing it correctly….
pp is the only reason the game is not terminally dead you know…

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Player's Pack 2] The Re-Packening.

simple enough:
The people that made the first pack a success should never be excluded from the second.
If they are, i can see the chances for a second pack being a success too, falling.

Also saying that they mutated your card design because they re-balanced them is plain wrong, not to mention about not allowing them because you feel insulted by them not responding in PM’s/chat.

The correct way is to work WITH them (if you can get them to work on packs again – i strongly recommend trying though) and see for yourself how justified/unjustified their actions were.

PS. I personally will not contribute at all if you don’t take some input from the devs for this.
Keep in mind that said input will convince others besides me, that you are serious about the pack, and the devs are ok with it.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Which one skill wrecked the game the most(Poll)

in my eyes, refresh is worse.

there were counters to summon from the packs before summon, but not to refresh from the packs before refresh

Refresh: there are almost no combinations pre HW that can kill UB spams… or eggs bacons decks…
refresh powercreeped over everything before it, and disease had to be added to slightly nerf that.

summon: appeared with AW and had an equally destructive powercreep potential, but the summon cards weren’t gamebreaking until Terminus…and even then only two cards were breaking the game. wwf and mw

they eventually both destroyed everything before them…

PS. Objection: EQG’s and Dracorex were powercreeped a little later than that… :)

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / SIEGE IS NOT COMPARABLE TO STRIKE. LOL.

i’ll bite.
buildings will not win you any game as no building can hit the commander directly.
only ground units can do that.

also if no ground units available for the opponent (e.g. when you strike them out), direct attack == siege for walls, and if no walls the enemy commander gets hit….

my point: they are different b/c ground units =/= buildings

I am sorry to burst your bubble thror.

But no, there will be no alternate version of tyrant that would even possibly pass off as a fangame of tyrant.
And if there was, it would not feel the same as Tyrant and I myself personally would not play it.

Basically the reason why I am not jumping ship to TU or Cry Havoc, and won’t even take a look at that new game they are currently developing right now.

The devs are far too lazy to keep tyrant up and they are scared that any information about the inner workings of tyrant would allow someone to make a new better game that would possibly be much more popular than TU and CH and kill off their incredibly high income.

you are not bursting any bubbles mr Shieru.
you just do not understand that a fan made game CAN be as good as the original, if not better, regardless of if you would play it or not.

Besides, we do not need any info on the inner workings of Tyrant. What we know already is good enough to duplicate it. Only problem is copyrights of art & names.

I also will never jump to TU, but not b/c of sentimental reasons/attachment to Tyrant, for gameplay/money grab reasons.

A game that is so severely p2w as TU, is not worth playing IMO.

PS. no need to reply to me… let the thread run its course without us derailing it…

a great community i see here.
most people do not care enough to support it, and the rest seem to think someone is going to recreate the game for money-grab reasons. (therefore hiring artists etc.)

But think a little. If it were an open-source project, the game would stop being p2w, but everything could be gold-buyable (some part of the economy should stay in, for balance reasons)
Cards and mechanics rebalancing could be done, in order to unpowercreep the game and make lots more cards useable.
Besides, any cheating problems and glitches would get fixed much faster.

You very well know that overwhelming community support in the past has made Synapticon listen.
So if you would like this project, shut up and support it, regardless of what $yn says, and we will see what happens.

Only barring factor i can see (from $yn’s standpoint) is if they want to use their card art for TU or other games….. But if the “libreTyrant” could gain momentum, we could finally make even our own cards….
