Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [MK] Progenitor's Continuum Week 3 Spoilers (+ Brawl & Cache)

Why is the reward card NOT in the in-game list of cards? Why is the wiki not updated? Devs are tripping over all the cash they are bringing in to care?

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / F2p players can't win in brawl

Originally posted by Bighairyviking:

I just dont understand why ftp players think TU ‘needs’ them.

Quick economics lesson….
Say there are 10,000 players of which 2000 pay money (whales-boxes/cache and/or freemium-daily deals/faction packs) and 8000 who dont pay a penny.
The devs get the money they want from the 2000. So if the 8000 ftp players left the game right now, there would still be the 2000 paying players and therefore the same money for the devs.

The argument about ‘without ftp there would be no whales’ is rubbish.
Ftp is the hook. Its that simple. Its there to attract players to the game. You will then always get a certain proportion that turn into whales, a proportion that turn into freemium and a proportion that remain ftp.

Thats how it works. So the devs do not actually require anyone to remain ftp. They only need to get you onto TU. Thats all ftp is there for.

You could not be more wrong. The reason people pay $100 for a chance at a computer graphic in the form of a card is because that card would be super OP compared to what is currently available. Otherwise, there is no need to pay for it. If you get rid of the F2P player base, the player base drops significantly, thus making it a pissing contest between who is willing to spend more money to stay on top. The reason the huge whales probably throw money into this game is to show dominance over everyone else. Being rank 50 out of 50000 is impressive. Being rank 50 out of 2000 is not as much.

to OP: QQ some more. I’m 100%, pure F2P. Never put even a penny into this game.
I have Ezamit Serene, Dreamreaper, Bane++, Baughe+ x 2, Xillaclaw, Lucidier+, Ascendant+, Jyackavor, Onyx, etc. I do not mention these to brag or show off but to point out that you don’t HAVE to pay. I finish brawls ~5k ranking and am sitting at 100k BR (though I only recently started actually raising this rank for daily quests). I do just fine. So don’t blame the game, blame your ability to play the game.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / Pinion in Veiled Cache.

Am I the only one realizing that you can buy the cache only 4 times..and get only 1 card per purchase. So chance for 4 Pinions is very very low?

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [Dev] Poll about next Guild War

Why not do something unique like 2x energy refill? Gives people a chance to either focus on killing mutants with low % win, or farm gold for RNG cards.

Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [To DEV] Fusion Tweak

We should be allowed to use a CARD+ or CARD++ as a substitute for CARD in terms of fusion requirements. You would already be losing at least 50% of the SP in the process, and would allow people to fuse cards to free up inventory space by not having to store 2+ copies of the unfused cards.

3rd or 4th event in a row without Imperial reward. I don’t know which event in a row without a DECENT Imperial reward for those under 5k ranking.

Topic: Dream World / Enough of these free MB events

Relax with the assumptions. Disagree if you want, my point remains that these free MB events every hour seem to reward people not based on effort but on checking the Guardian tab before the hour is up. If player A does nothing but log on at 1 minute past the hour and auto-explore the rest of the time, he gets plenty of MBs. But player B who is unable to log on as diligently, lets say plays vigorously for 3 hours straight (misting, fallen, mystic, mines, isendel, invasion, etc) his reward is just 3 MBs.

I like this event versus nothing at all. But having an opinion doesn’t make me ungrateful. I’ve gotten plenty of MBs from both types of events, just voicing an opinion.

Topic: Dream World / Enough of these free MB events

Say what you will but those of us who have played for a while will probably agree that the christmas or easter style of event was a better strategy than the current one.

Topic: Dream World / Enough of these free MB events

Why reward people just for logging in once every hour (or 1/2 hour) rather than those who actually play the game by killing bosses, dropping trash, etc. Easter egg /Christmas should be the norm, not this.

Topic: Dream World / Official Suggestions Thread

With the upcoming content patch coming up, and with most top 100 players wearing drow gear, Greater Fallen gear should be vault-able.

Also, allow guilds to increase the size of vault with coins.

Topic: Dream World / Beyond lvl 95....

Let’s be honest. KingK isn’t interested in how much money you’ve spent in the past. He only cares how much money you will spend in the future.

If pat/auth are so powerful they no longer feel the need to buy heroic/genius, or just gems in general, KingK essentially loses 2 big spenders. So it’s in his interest to reset the exp to give them more of a challenge. Personally, I don’t care. They are both so far out of the league of 99.5% of the player base that it shouldn’t concern anyone else either.

You must’ve missed my post about how I am non-gemmed. And also not a mage. And yet have more than 2000 more SPs. Let’s not make excuses for those who auto-explore.

You’re level 80 and only 3925 Skill points? That’s a worse crime than misspelling one word.

You mean pink crystals? Yes, those are spent on LPs but the majority of those were put toward my gun/sword/magic skills. Maybe 3-4 stats were raised via crystals.

Topic: Dream World / The Power of NOT Gemming (data!)

Everyone talks about how much Authority spent, and how much Ultima spent, etc.

I have been logging my stats since April 2010.

Here is the result: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25778161/DW.xlsx

I have not gemmed. This is purely from logging in every day (almost), not auto-exploring, and doing every puzzle (except 4 color one). Thank you KingK for the free gifts.

Selling certain items (gear) from inventory does seem to remove them. Repeatedly selling them gives a message “Item does not exist anymore.”

Topic: Dream World / Official Suggestions Thread

Increase the LP bonus of collecting 5 yellow crystals.

5 white crystals: 20 gems = 1.25 LP purchase
5 pink crystals: 6 gems = .375 LP purchase (-70% reduction)
5 yellow crystals: 20 LP = 0.06 LP purchased [at lvl 79] (-84% reduction)

Since gems can be used to purchase more than just LP, I argue that 5 yellow crystals give 0.5 LP purchase or at least proportional to level.

Topic: Dream World / "Mystic Wars" Expansion Preview

KingK, do you think people play DW for the graphics or the art? No one really cares what the bosses LOOK like. Give us info on what they drop. Or what makes them any different from Neo, CL, elder, queen, fallen, etc. Otherwise, I couldn’t care less if they were a black box, green box, blue box, red box, and a white box.
