Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Anyone Still buying WBs?

Ever think about why TU is targeted to a younger audience than WMT?

They learned that their “business strategy” was being exposed by the community, and this hurt sales.

All the inaction and lack of communication is purposeful. $yn never makes a mistake.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Thought Exercise: How can you tell if a matchmaking system is balanced?

A balanced system will be nonsensical. Reason is rooted in reality, which in turn is quite disparate and unideal. Ergo, it would follow that a balanced system will be the opposite of reality – ie, whimsical. The most absurd of ideas are the most likely to succeed.

It’s a shame we couldn’t see super’s “apparently off-topic, derogatory, flaming or all around hateful comment.” Fortunately, we have the rest of his post history to laugh at.

Yeah, but mind that people playing a game that generates nearly no profit is really bad!
So do not advertise it, do not turn people away from the Glorious Tyrant Unleashed of Truth and Honor and Glory and Stuff, because that may cause them to play a game with an actual point for the f2player.

Losing currency (read: players) is a lot worse than the trouble of banning someone, while cheating is ok as long as there is no currency (read: players) loss because of it!

This game died largely due to the stagnation of the top ranks caused by, you guessed it, cheating. You could try and argue that $yn supported the cheaters in question because they happened to be whales as well, but then you’d be ignoring the fact that $yn’s business strategy doesn’t give too much weight to any one of their games (actually a rather wise investment diversification tactic).

WMT was phased out for TU, yet after TU was released $yn already had another game (GloAss) preparing for launch!

$yn is essentially a get rich quick scheme trying to use mobile game tactics in the PC flash market – pump out crappy games designed to pull as money as possible in a short amount of time, and then close them and repeat.

Your argument relies on a misunderstanding of $yn’s business plan – I highly doubt they would even seriously consider going to the trouble of banning people in their games when they could be using their time to maximize immediate profit instead.

2. is BW the most cheating, worst faction ever? y/n
If the answer to both of the above is y, then masterdebatorr is either:
Eonian or BMF
3. does it have latinas? y/n
if y = eonian
if n = bmf
why would one would be a master debator if one had a harem of latinas?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / [Revitalize Tyrant] Warbond Stock Market

I propose one final update tp WMT before its closure – a stock market with factions.

Each faction could decide to issue a set amount of shares (which wouldn’t actually represent any stake in the faction, except in a strictly financial sense, as the shares will appreciate or depreciate based on how the faction performs), and then players could buy and sell them amongst themselves. Players would not be able to buy shares of their own faction, to prevent insider trading.

Let’s say the initial offering is 1,000 shares for all factions, and all top ten factions decide to participate.

Currently, PR is ranked 3 and TC is ranked 4. PR is priced 15 Wb per share, and TC 12. I might decide to buy 10 TC shares with 120 Warbonds, hoping that TC will surpass PR and take 3rd.

Sure enough, TC takes 3rd, and they get a new leader, who happens to be a very well-respected player. Both of these factors make TC a desired stock, and it’s share price increases to 18 WBs per share. If I choose to sell my shares now, I just made 60 warbonds! I bought 10 shares at 120 WBs, and sold them for 180.

Q&A

Q: So, exactly what would drive the market? If investors aren’t actually buying partial ownership, why would they want to spend more on higher ranked factions?

A: Dividends! Shares of factions would generate a very small amount of gold for their owners every day. The amount would increase for higher ranked factions.

Q: Why would anyone ever sell shares of the very top factions then?

A: WBs. By taking advantage of changes in price, traders could game the market for WBs. This is why the dividends would be in gold and not WB – someone with 1000 shares of the number 1 faction could generate WB without any risk, and thus would have no reason to sell.

FOREX

The gold for WB offers built into the client don’t give a very solid representation of the value of the two currencies in relation to each other. The solution? A currency exchange. Just like the IRL equivalent, Tyrant’s FOREX traders would be able to make money by betting on changes in the value of those currencies – with said value fluctuating because of those very trades.

Types of Orders

To save coding time, only a few basic order types would be implemented:

Stocks

Market Order – Buy shares at market price

Stop(loss) Order – Buy or sell shares once they reach a specified price.

Sell Order – Sell shares at market price

Options

Binary Up Order – Place a specified amount of WB on a stock’s appreciation in a set time frame.

Binary Down Order – Place a specified amount of WB on a stock’s depreciation in a set time frame.

Q&A

Q: Eonian, I happen to be a hedge fund manager and day trader for Merrill Lynch, Charles Schwab and BNY Mellon with a lifetime experience trading futures contracts on like 10,000% margin. I was looking forward to making 1,000,000,000 Warbonds a day by making a bunch of short calls on the top factions, bear raiding them, and then selling my short calls for massive profit. Now, I find out you only offer the most basic order types, and binary options? Absurd!

A: While I’m sure Merrill Lynch & Friends appreciate your knack for the markets, but you have to understand $ynapticoin, despite it’s name, doesn’t. Our poor devs will probably feel bad just coding the stuff already here and thinking about how much money they don’t have. Besides, the current stuff might take them upwards of an hour to code and implement as is, so we wouldn’t want to burden any further.

Q: Eonian, I’m too stupid to follow all this stuff, and am afraid if this is implemented I might learn valuable information that might prevent me becoming broke at some point. You can’t do this to me!

A: But learning is fun! And money too! Latinas like money!

Q$yn: Eonian, I’m a $yn dev/employee. I don’t really do anything all day and really don’t want to code this for a dying game. Why should I?

A: Money. Putting in a fun, interactive way for everyone to use WB will encourage people to buy it, despite the game’s fast-approaching shut down. Those purchases of WB are in fact needed – they will act as injected capital, and prevent the market from becoming a zero-sum game.

Q$yn: I’m not convinced. You know I want to milk the last cent out of the WMT community, but if I’m gonna put time into this, why not just implement it in TU?

A: What is the average age of TU players?

Q$yn: Like, 8. Why?

A: Do you really think a stock market sim would make any money in TU?

Q$yn: No…

A: :)

Originally posted by Caad:

I use to a be thief, I stole everything I could, so I could get money to buy warbonds. I did it because i wanted to be in the meta. I broke friendships and family bonds to be a relevant player, I lost my house and started living in the streets, dealing drugs and stealing, so I could go afford going to cyber cafes play Tyrant and buy more warbonds. This costed me my health too, I nearly died of starvation. But it didn’t matter to me, as long as I could be in the meta.

But then one day, a friend told about a card. It was a sub-par card, nobody used it. Many people didn’t have one copy of it, even though you can buy it for gold. At first I didnt believe, but my friend told me to trust him, that if I gave myself to it all my sufferings would go away. So I tried the card. At first it didn’t work, I didn’t know how build my decks around it, but after a week of experimenting my surge rate went 65% to 9001%. The deck I found worked 100% for all the quests, missions and raids and was an unbeatable defense deck for wars and CQ. The card was free, I didn’t need to sacrifice my money to be relevant in the meta.

The card, if you didnt guess by now, was the card of our Lord and Saviour

ORBO

and the deck I built was this:

I recovered my house, my health, my friends and family. I became able to overcome every burden fate put on my path thanks to this card. All I am today, I have it thanks to this card. This card saved my life.

ALL HAIL ORBO

Your win rate was so good because you found out how to use orbo as commander, that’s the key.

Regular (read: non-orbo commander decks) suck, even with 10 orbos, because the regular orbo abilities suck dick unless they are buffed by the Orbo Commander card.

In fact, you can see similar winrates using any deck, provided you have Orbo as commander.

The key is getting Orbo in that command slot.
