Topic: Tyrant: Faction Recruitment / Pwnersaurus Rex: Competitive, upper-tier faction seeking interesting, active, articulate players

Besides reaching number one, I hope we can also settle the long running debate before Tyrant ends that Starship Troopers is indeed a classic.

PM TheRealPip!

Topic: Kongregate / Nintendo allows "non-commercial" use of characters - How does this affect us?

But now it appears that Nintendo’s had a change of heart. Today it announced that it will allow unlicensed derivative works from now on, meaning parody makers, tribute builders, and all around fans now have access to freely use classic gaming characters that they love

I am no copyright law expert, but parody work has ALWAYS been allowed on any copyrighted work. So this isn’t changing anything. (I am not sure on tribute work, but would guess that if you were not making money on it, and it only increased the market for the copyrighted work it would fall under one of the exceptions that exist in copyright law anyway.)

If that is all this is, it is nothing new and not something Nintendo could have stopped anyway.

Well, parody/tributes weren’t allowed in Japan, as far as I know. So it’s a change for the Japanese. (not everyone is murican u usa-centric redneck!)

i am procrastinating and this made me wonder what actually would happen; i had zero idea. apparently the Berne Convention (1886) was an international treaty protecting copyright across countries. lots of countries signed, but the US for a long time refused (1989). China has also signed (1992). so there is some sort of legal grounds for such things, even between the US and China, but how effective it is.. well, right. also, i couldn’t find what the recourse would be if there was a dispute (i.e. extradition, or would it be dealt w/ somehow on China’s end?)

Synapse would have to go through Chinese judicial system.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [To DEV] Reporting a piracy. You might want to file a lawsuit.

Kongregate supports pirated games. Remember the flappy birds clones?

Also funny: the kingdom rush clone, the king of towers. It’s the same game with a P2W and a grind system implemented. Kong is making a buck off of it so they don’t care. It’s been a long time since they were all about supporting indie developers and originality and stuff that doesn’t help you buy a private yacht.

So, don’t forget to pm the devs of this game, kong will probably love to host it. (also lol at suing chinese company for copyright infringement.)

I was sure you’d understand basic arithmetic, Sigha. I guess I over estimate your intelligence sometimes.

Overestimate, not over estimate.

Soon. Also: the next time you post on a different game’s forum about WMT, you will be banned from all of our games.

Posting on another game’s forum will lead to you getting banned on all synapticon games!!!

Oh noes.

So please guys, I’ve given you this information, be responsible and don’t post anywhere else about WMT.

Well put. No one should ever speak of WMT ever again on all the game forums on all the interwebs.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Why Sean got kicked from OoD

Originally posted by supermooo:

NOT because he called me out on the fact that I had fought with my alt for EMP and not for OoD on my main (because I felt bad for EMP that we were farming them all the time). But because he called me a cunt in my own fc. THAT’S why I kicked him. And he didn’t call me out- it was no secret. Really, we were winning all our wars, so for me it was no biggie even if we lost because of it. But if you have to win all the time, then I guess it is a reason to swear at people.

He called you out and you ridiculed him. Although there’s no excuse for using that kind of language, you tried your best to make him do smt like that. Acting all appalled when you get a reaction is bs.

There is no reason for anyone in your faction to accept a leader sabotaging a war just because she has an alt in the warring faction. Good leaders are not above criticism or treat their faction as a personal toy to fullfill their need to boss people around. They should always have in mind what is best for the group.

There is also no reason that members from OoD should have accepted a loss to EMP just because you had an alt there and it was no biggie for you to lose to them and you felt sorry for them.

Basically, you had a bunch of people invest their time in a war and you shat in their hats , cuz you wanted EMP to luv u. To me, that’s insane and I have to agree that you might be the worst player/leader in the history of any game I have ever seen.

A side affect of me responding to those messages is indeed bumping a thread. It is still responding to, not bringing things up. Those I responded to already did that.

I think you don’t really know what happened in this thread and your view is rather incomplete. In any case. Let it rest

Why do you bring it up if you want to let it rest? Passive aggressive much?
