Why not leave wars as is, and remove the PVP aspect of CQ. Basically this system would work like this:

Every 24 hrs. Faction can CQ once against that Days CQ challenge. The challenge is basically an AI run CQ tile.

Their ability to complete that challenge as a team determines their token gain that day. (You could base token gain on time to complete, lack of heals/holds, differing difficulty levels of the automation (number of defenses, def deck difficulty, random switching etc.)

Advantages include: Each faction’s success is only based on their own ability, small and large factions can compete w/o danger of being knocked out, and finally no more hate.

Wow. I like this idea a lot.

This would really solve all problems of conquest +1

best suggestion ever + 1000

Reward factions for organized team activity and reduces negativity between player base by eliminating clash of interest. I like this! +1

I’m so glad you made time to see me
How’s life? Tell me, how’s your faction?
I haven’t seen them in a while
You’ve been good, busier than ever
Memories of Niaq and Neverender
You’re really fed up, and I know why
Because the last time you played EMP
Is still burned in the back of your mind
You gave me Chronos, and I left him there to die

[Chorus]
So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying I’m sorry for that night
And I go back to Homeworld all the time
It turns out Tyrant ain’t nothing but missing you
Wishing I’d realized what fun I had With Airstrike
I go back to Homeworld, turn around and make it alright
I go back to Homeworld all the time

These days, I haven’t been sleeping
Staying up, dealing with power-creeping
When your birthday passed, and I didn’t call
Then I think about summer, all the beautiful times
I watched you laughing from chat room five
And realized I loved you in the forum
And then Phobos came, the dark days
When fear crept into the meta
You gave Devs all your WBs, and all they gave you was Blindside

[Chorus]
So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying I’m sorry for that night
And I go back to Homeworld all the time
It turns out Tyrant ain’t nothing but missing you
Wishing I’d realized what fun I had With Airstrike
I go back to Homeworld, turn around and make it alright
I go back to Homeworld all the time

I miss Duncan, Yurich’s smile
So good to me, so right
And how you held me in your arms that September night
The first time you ever saw me cry
Maybe this is wishful thinking
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again, I swear I’d love you right
I’d go back in time and change it, but I can’t
So if the chain is on your door, I understand

So this is me swallowing my pride
Standing in front of you, saying I’m sorry for that night
And I go back to Homeworld
It turns out Tyrant ain’t nothing but missing you
Wishing I’d realized what fun I had With Airstrike
I go back to Homeworld, turn around and make it alright
I go back to Homeworld, turn around and QS with Airstike
I go back to Homeworld all the time, all the time

This is so beautiful. This is the quality all forum poster must aspire to.

Dun see how zarak can lose, unless draco fear/flank rush or flurry troll you.

Draco has Steadfast Cannon. Not to mention all the units he summons seem to like Siege as well.

Just WASTED 300+ energy on Draco Genesis. This particular quest is causing nothing but frustration. Just make it into a hidden mission or something so I’ll never touch this again.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Conquest map MUST RESET!

It’s gotten to the point where resetting the map is not going to solve the problem, at best it’s just postponing the inevitable. Pretty soon you’ll get back to this same picture, since the dominating factions right now can hit harder and have more health.

- make the tiles worth more the closer to the middle you get – then the HARDCORE factions will wage war to get those tiles, leaving the edges undefended for the rest of us newbs to get at

agreed

All these are good suggestions. They should have been implemented from the get-go. Every day that synap wastes maintaining the status quo is another step in making these suggestions increasingly worthless. The gap is indeed widening.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / "New" set idea [For DEVS attention]

I don’t know. Having a repair card now, after the likes of Righteous Hold and Zarak made their appearance, will further mess up the meta. Structures (non-walls) are vulnerable only to siege so don’t reduce siege feasibility.

Instead of introducing ‘new’ abilities, just make it like Conquest’s battleground effect so at least both sides battle it out fairly.

Originally posted by BillMoor:

I should also point out the advantage to not doing conquest at all. Many of the top factions used WB’s to deal with wars. That is no longer an option (one tha tpuzzles me, since I would think synapticon wants wbs spent). So every top faction fighting a tough conquest battle becomes a target for other factions. If you are frustrated not being one of the top factions: farm the ones who are conquesting! Bring them down, go up yourself.

It doesn’t matter how active they are, once 300 stamina is gone, you have a 5 hour advantage over them.

But this won’t be true for much longer. After all the top factions comfortably settle down and agree not to invade each other, they can come back to warring full time.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Why regular, planned conquest resets is good for Players and DEVs

How do you categorize a faction into strong/weak? Based on faction level? Low level faction may have high level players and vice versa. Based on wars won? If they fight against similarly rated or higher factions all the time, then maybe.

What we need is a separate Tyrant game altogether. One for casual, and one for hardcore, lol.

Topic: General Tyrant Discussion / Conquest map MUST RESET!

They most likely won’t reset, at least not until the players who spent cash to gain the upper hand in this game get their return for the investment (in the form of loads of tokens).

Only much later will you see any semblance of effort made to placate the rest of the community.

Topic: Chronicles of Blood / PvP

There’re many reasons you should start PvP-ing early:
1. At early levels u should be getting better loot in PvP than PvE. I’ve collected lots of Clothes/Leathers/Steels/Woods from PvP mostly. The rate of drop is much better in my opinion.
2. Battle Charger, the easiest and best mount you can get for a long long time.
3. Like BladeGrip said, the more you delay, the stronger your peer becomes. It’s not an issue if you are willing to forego PvP completely, but some accessories in the Battlemaster are worth having for PvE/PvB, just so you know.
4. Good source of Rubies, and once you max the powers, disenchant those scrolls for even more rubies (same for WoCs).

Topic: Chronicles of Blood / Start over?

The only unique thing each setup gives that’s not obtainable on the other two is the servant. The scrolls are all lootable from certain regions.
Out of those servants, the hellhound has the least practical uses because eventually you’ll be able to get two other fire servants. Blood Maiden is decent, but again you will later get other healing-related servants so it’s not a biggie to miss her. The cat is IMO the most valuable one (9% chance boosts is significant when u have many many curse sources).
