Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Game is dead already

I just saw a thread in the forum in which the last post was yesterday!

Two threads in the faction recruitment section actually have latest posts from 11 days ago.

Game is officially dead!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / To all of those that complain about the Player's Pack (Apocalypse)

The player’s pack is a well-planned gimmick designed to reinvigorate the whale’s love of Tyrant in order to make them more likely to head to TU, which now has advertising just about everywhere.

As for the gameplay value itself, the devs will doubtlessly have the final say in any player designs and this must be remembered.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Petition] Get rid of TU advertising

Originally posted by mandouvala:

Other game advertisements are clearly disallowed on this forum, and I strongly resent the dev’s and their minions’ goading of the WMT community to transfer to TU. Therefore, I think that all TU relevant topics should be locked and their contents removed.

Pats voted for Mary Ann, thus claiming allegiance to latinas in the symbolic Latinas vs. White Girls debate – then tries to disown latinas? Tsk tsk tsk

Making her sad.

Shush, current pop progressivism says that Islam = Good, Israel = Bad, therefore, Hamas = Good, so you shouldn’t be implying they’re violent terrorists!

I can’t believe it, but I somehow predicted the future in this game. The community is slowly but surely turning exactly into that one psycho bitch ex-girlfriend who stalks the Devs for abandoning them :/

Good point. It’s not like the vast majority of stalking cases (and follow-up rapes) are like, commited by psycho bitch men or anything….

Now, to the point:

Originally posted by Asklar:

Oh my gawd I’m so famous now! You should be grateful I don’t charge royalties.

To be fair, what I meant with T:U losing momentum and stuff was basically what happened when T:U began becoming popular hurting WMT’s overall state. I’m not a mindless T:U hater. I do think the game is lame and very p2w, yes, but I wouldn’t care at all about that game if WMT’s development wasn’t left like this because of it. That’s the root of the whole problem.

Now, I do see the fact that devs wouldn’t simply throw away T:U. They have already invested too much on it (not only money, though that’s the biggest part of it, but also time, seeing that they already have a 6-months roadmap apparently). However, if this game got a second wind with this last update(s), maybe that would make devs reconsider about letting it die. I don’t think that the right idea is destroying T:U (though that’d be fun to see), my guess is that this game needs to become better and attractive again. Sure, that’s a very tough situation because there’s only this much that we as the community can do.

In all honesty, that whole thing I typed makes me believe that we still have a chance. Slim, not very likely or possible at all, but there it is. I guess I’m too much of a dreamer and too mushy for this kind of stuff. We should all just try to make the best out of this last time over here, and wish that devs have a bit of respect or some kind of love for this game inside their Heart of Corruption, which is possibly the biggest project they have made so far, and that has have a big impact on some people.

Yes, I got too sentimental on that parragraph lol.

My logic is simple, yours relies too much on chance.

Tyrant is making money to this day – more so than is needed to host it, ergo, it follows that the game is “profitable.” In other words, the game is already turning a profit, and they are closing it anyway.

Now, it would seem to me that this implies that the dev’s have decided their previous business model of opening multiple cash cows at once is inferior to the idea of just using one, and pouring resources into it.

In other words, cue lightning,

Right now, guess which game is slated to be that one? Tyrant:Unleashed.

Now, if T:U would encounter problems whereby it would become…unprofitable, the obvious fallback is WMT.

I am not saying that if T:U disappeared from the face of the internet (ideal scenario), WMT would be saved. I am saying that the chances of WMT being saved in a world where T:U is rendered unprofitable are far, far higher than those in a world where T:U is still an option for the devs.

In other words, everyone else is providing their ideas for how to save WMT, so this is mine, and above are the reasons I think it is a better alternative.

Probably the last update is going to be the best one.

Player’s pack, economy changes / accessiblity, extremly hard raids, etc…

Devs finally make deep, strong changes on the game based on what the community wants and has been asking for years instead of staying in their own silly ways of developing. Update is a success, the game becomes even more popular. Tyrant forums reach number 1 in post count through all kongregate forums. New players from T:U begin coming here, along with their wallets. T:U begins to lose momentum as devs begin having fun developing WMT as it should have been done. Kongregate puts more WMT ads on it’s homepage as it becomes the most popular CCG again. Closing to the expiration date of WMT, devs realise the mistakes they have done all this time, finally banning cheaters and enforcing the ToS, releasing more and better updates, staying in touch with the community and having a good, working consortium again. The revenue generated by this change is too big for devs to ignore. The game hits 100 million gameplays in record time. Kongregate begins to support the game officially, game will last as long as kongregate does. Expiration dates finally arrives, the game is in it’s most euphoric state as all the factions coordinate themselves to make the biggest conquest art so far; a highly detailed Orbo. Everyone is uncertain as to what will happen tomorrow.

You wake up the next day, turn on the computer and go to kongregate…

I think this needs to become reality. We have smart enough people in this community to figure out how to make this work. (dumb enough to make it fail as well, but still) =)

Everything in here is true – save one part: Devs will hang on to T:U no matter how hard it flops in the face of WMT. Why? Arrogance. They don’t want to let the community win, they don’t want to be wrong.

Take out T:U, Cry Havoc if possible, and WMT will make a comeback.

I leave the exact method of this to the imagination of the community.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / How stupid this is

You know, it’s practically scientific fact that ambitious, powerful women have exponentially more sex appeal than contented indolents.

Wu Zetian, for instance. She had her own son executed when she suspected him of trying to usurp her, personally stabbed the former emperor of the Tang dynasty, and expanded China’s territory through near constant wars of aggression throughout her reign. Now that’s hot.

Agreed. He wasn’t pro-any faction and actually removed/locked the troll fest in these forums/anti-GW post.

Yeah, but thats all Stots would do, he was a one-trick pony and when there was whistleblowing (public awareness to shame cheating) he banned/silenced/threatened those players so that the cheaters could keep doing it. He was totally incompetent to the game (report cheaters to dev, they will fix it blah blah) and as a result the game suffered, but hey, what does it matter when you’re a lowly mod trying to claim rep points for fixing forum issues.

The thing is, our new mods, despite knowing very well who cheats, do the same thing and with much more activity behind them.
