the one year of pre announcement was only to draw as many people as possible away from WMT and into TU, where the real spending is going on.

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 :)

likable thread!

and i thought Tyrant forums were dead. :)
This game never ceases to amaze

@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.

Do you really believe this game will be around for almost a year like the DEVs told us?

could well be around for almost a year…

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…
PS2.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [TO DEVS] WMT fangame

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….

I used to hate Ogres starting out. My strike decks couldnt take them out

that’s one of my first Tyrant memories too. damn ogre spam decks!
I was so happy when i got the correct cards to beat them. :)

Also, i remember when i first won a gold tourney and got Apollo.

overlook is not that good, but i guess, if we used what we can get our hands on, if synapse ever filed a lawsuit, we could just remove the art, and stay with the rest. (since, by Jetu’s words, mechanics and UI are non-copyrightable)

Yup I hear you, they have declined access to code and servers, but they have been quite friendly to unofficial projects in the past, for instance they didn’t try to shut down the fansite, in fact they even gave it special API privileges AFAIK.

Question for devs if you are reading this:
“If someone made an opensource client from scratch using the front-end assets, put lots of links to official site and made clear ‘all content © copyright Synapple’, would that be OK by you?”

DemonCore, you should probably make a new tread, with the [TO DEVS] tag, so that you will maximize the chance for them to see it and reply.

If you’re a dev, why not just make a new one with others that are willing. A better one. After learning from their mistake?


recreating/finding new artwork and renaming/finding new mechanics can about as hard as recreating the code.
Also gfx designers are harder to become interested.

But if we could use the available front-end assets without copyright problems… then just devs can do a remake.

Keep in mind we’re talking a year out, not right now. Regardless, we are not giving away our code or control of our servers for multiple reasons.


what about card images / mechanics then?
if someone will make a quick coding of simplified tyrant client-server behaviour but on separate url and with new game client, but with your card images?

sorry to jump in, but have not seen any response to this particular question.
if synapticon accepts to give the cards images.. a remake may be possible.

did i miss an answer?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Tyrant is dying

of course its dying. has been for years imo… hence the majority of threads about it (well many of those are just shit)
the question is do we care about Tyrant dying right now?

now its not p2w and actually can be fun.
