Rules

Booting Policy
If a member has not been active (f.e: very low loyalty gain), the Leader or an Officer will send a PM to the aforementioned member to ask if he/she has quit Tyrant or is experiencing some kind of inconvience that affects his/her activity.

If the member responds and gives permission to boot him/her from the faction the leader and all Officers may boot that member.

If the member does not respond within 7 days, the regarded member will be discussed in the "Court". In this case permission to boot is only granted if the majority of all Officers vote "Yes" or if the Leader himself decides so.

What do we expect from you?
As you know almost every single faction has some rules, so do we.

Here are the most basic rules and we expect you to follow them:

- At least gain 50 loyalty per week --> this means you'll have to win 50 faction battles each week (dumping 1 full stamina bar each week should be enough).

- Your "netto" points need to be positive (means you need to do do more good than bad in a war),

- Let your voice be heard once in a while, so we know you're actively participating in our faction.

- Don't be rude to your fellow faction members under any circumstances.

- Please speak English in both forum and in game chat.

- Don't post any vulgar or inappropriate content on the forum.

- If you want to take a couple of weeks/month/(or in special circumstances longer than a month; f.e: vacation, work holdup etc) off, please notify us by making a post in the forums or telling us in game or sending a PM on Kongregate.

Officers only section:

- If you'd like to boot someone follow the "Booting Policy"

- Recruiting members/accepting applicants see "Requirements accepting applicants"

Punishments
Breaking multiple rules may result in a penalty.

Punishments for breaking rules: Note: There are no official punishments set for breaking the rules but the most common ones are:

- You'll be discussed in the "Court" and the vote of all Officers and the leader will determine wether you can stay in the faction or not.

- You'll be immediately kicked by the leader himself.
- You'll be set on "probation", which means we will watch your actions very closely and are able to immediately boot you if we're absolutely not satisfied with your actions.


Officers only

- You'll be demoted back to a member (this decision can only be made by the leader).

What are the requirements of accepting a new applicant?
The applicant must at least be over level 20.

If the applicant is not level 20 he/she must contact the Leader in order to get approval of joining the faction otherwise the application will be declined.

Also the applicant has to able to earn at least 50 "loyalty points" each week.
Back to top Back to top

I have a friend that's over level 20 and I'd like to invite him, only problem is: the faction is full :(
If you have a friend that would really like to join our faction it's always worth trying to ask an Officer if something could be done about this. Even if the faction is full it's still possible to apply for a spot.

Most of the time the faction is full but an Officer might be able to boot someone that has either been very inactive (without notifying us) or has quit playing.
Back to top Back to top

What is the "Court"?
The "Court" is an area for Members, Warmasters and Officers. Everyone will discuss the topic of booting members here.

Officers or the Leader himself can present members that either did not abide the rules or have gone inactive without prior notice. Final decisions of booting members will be processed with a "vote".
Back to top Back to top

How can I become an Officer?
Officers are appointed by the Leader himself (currently Oechi). They are only selected if they have proven to be a worthy Officer and abide the faction rules.

As an Officer you will need to be active both socially and participating in the wars.
If you'd like to be an Officer contact the Leader and show us why you think you should be an Officer!

Note: Sometimes it may occur that there are some exceptions on appointing a new Officer.

What is a "Raid"?
A raid is a kind of "event" where a limited amount of people can join and battle a boss all together. You'll be battling a "special" raid deck that sometimes (depending on the raid) contains "special" cards that are normally not available to players. When you defeat your opponent you'll deal 20 - 25 damage to the boss. When you lose you get nothing.

Upon completion of a raid every participant will gain "Honor" based on the amount of damage they've dealt. List of "Damage/Honor gain": [see "damage/honor rates"]
Back to top Back to top

What are the damage dealt/honor gain rates?
The rates are:
25 Damage = 2 Honor
50 Damage = 5 Honor
75 Damage = 8 Honor
100 Damage = 10 Honor
150 Damage = 15 Honor
200 Damage = 20 Honor
250 Damage = 25 Honor
300 Damage = 30 Honor
400 Damage = 40 Honor
500 Damage = 55 Honor
600 Damage = 65 Honor
700 Damage = 75 Honor
800 Damage = 85 Honor
900 Damage = 95 Honor
1000 Damage = 110 Honor

Note: The following tiers only apply for Imperial Purger, Tartarus Swarm, and Blightbloom
1100 Damage = 120 Honor
1200 Damage = 130 Honor
1300 Damage = 140 Honor
1400 Damage = 150 Honor
1500 Damage = 160 Honor
1600 Damage = 170 Honor
1700 Damage = 180 Honor
1800 Damage = 190 Honor
1900 Damage = 200 Honor
2000 Damage = 225 Honor

I occasionally see people talking about AZR, II or other Tyrant slang. What do these abbrevations mean?
AZR = Azure Reaper. A powerful Xeno card reward card obtained by reaching 500 Honor at Enclave Flagship (EF).

II = Irradiated Infantry. A common imperial card. It's obtainable by reaching 200 Reputation with "The Purge"

OPollo = Apollo. Considered as an overpowered card by the community due to its extreme durability. It has 2 Armored, Evade and Heal All 3.

SC = Support Carrier. One of the best support cards in the game, thus the name "Support Carrier". It's obtainable by reaching 2000 Reputation with "Honored Credo".

Who is/are Second in Command? (SiC)
Current Officers Second in Command:
crx687
SnowFeather

Sometimes the Leader assigns an Officer (or more) as his "Right hand" (not implemented in the game as a feature). These people are chosen because of their tremendous loyalty to the faction and their skills as a replacing leader.

"Why making people SiC?" you ask. Simply because the Leader can't always be around to manage the whole faction. Also having multiple people running a faction usually results in making better decisions thus being a more organized faction.

Rules/permissions for SiC:
Same as for the "Leader" (meaning they can boot people immediately without consulting with the Leader).

Login and Registration Issues

Why can't I log in?
Have you registered? Seriously, you must register in order to log in. Have you been banned from the board? (A message will be displayed if you have.) If so, you should contact the webmaster or board administrator to find out why. If you have registered and are not banned and you still cannot log in then check and double-check your username and password. Usually this is the problem; if not, contact the board administrator -- they may have incorrect configuration settings for the board.
Back to top Back to top

Why do I need to register at all?
You may not have to -- it is up to the administrator of the board as to whether you need to register in order to post messages. However, registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users such as definable avatar images, private messaging, e-mailing to fellow users, usergroup subscription, etc. It only takes a few minutes to register so it is recommended you do so.
Back to top Back to top

Why do I get logged off automatically?
If you do not check the Log me in automatically box when you log in, the board will only keep you logged in for a preset time. This prevents misuse of your account by anyone else. To stay logged in, check the box during login. This is not recommended if you access the board from a shared computer, e.g. library, internet cafe, university cluster, etc.
Back to top Back to top

How do I prevent my username from appearing in the online user listings?
In your profile you will find an option Hide your online status; if you switch this on you'll only appear to board administrators or to yourself. You will be counted as a hidden user.
Back to top Back to top

I've lost my password!
Don't panic! While your password cannot be retrieved it can be reset. To do this go to the login page and click I've forgotten my password. Follow the instructions and you should be back online in no time.
Back to top Back to top

I registered but cannot log in!
First check that you are entering the correct username and password. If they are okay then one of two things may have happened: if COPPA support is enabled and you clicked the I am under 13 years old link while registering then you will have to follow the instructions you received. If this is not the case then maybe your account need activating. Some boards will require all new registrations be activated, either by yourself or by the administrator before you can log on. When you registered it would have told you whether activation was required. If you were sent an e-mail then follow the instructions; if you did not receive the e-mail then check that your e-mail address is valid. One reason activation is used is to reduce the possibility of rogue users abusing the board anonymously. If you are sure the e-mail address you used is valid then try contacting the board administrator.
Back to top Back to top

I registered in the past but cannot log in anymore!
The most likely reasons for this are: you entered an incorrect username or password (check the e-mail you were sent when you first registered) or the administrator has deleted your account for some reason. If it is the latter case then perhaps you did not post anything? It is usual for boards to periodically remove users who have not posted anything so as to reduce the size of the database. Try registering again and get involved in discussions.

User Preferences and settings

How do I change my settings?
All your settings (if you are registered) are stored in the database. To alter them click the Profile link (generally shown at the top of pages but this may not be the case). This will allow you to change all your settings.
Back to top Back to top

The times are not correct!
The times are almost certainly correct; however, what you may be seeing are times displayed in a timezone different from the one you are in. If this is the case, you should change your profile setting for the timezone to match your particular area, e.g. London, Paris, New York, Sydney, etc. Please note that changing the timezone, like most settings, can only be done by registered users. So if you are not registered, this is a good time to do so, if you pardon the pun!
Back to top Back to top

I changed the timezone and the time is still wrong!
If you are sure you have set the timezone correctly and the time is still different, the most likely answer is daylight savings time (or summer time as it is known in the UK and other places). The board is not designed to handle the changeovers between standard and daylight time so during summer months the time may be an hour different from the real local time.
Back to top Back to top

My language is not in the list!
The most likely reasons for this are either the administrator did not install your language or someone has not translated this board into your language. Try asking the board administrator if they can install the language pack you need or if it does not exist, please feel free to create a new translation. More information can be found at the phpBB Group website (see link at bottom of pages)
Back to top Back to top

How do I show an image below my username?
There may be two images below a username when viewing posts. The first is an image associated with your rank; generally these take the form of stars or blocks indicating how many posts you have made or your status on the forums. Below this may be a larger image known as an avatar; this is generally unique or personal to each user. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and they have a choice over the way in which avatars can be made available. If you are unable to use avatars then this is the decision of the board admin and you should ask them their reasons (we're sure they'll be good!)
Back to top Back to top

How do I change my rank?
In general you cannot directly change the wording of any rank (ranks appear below your username in topics and on your profile depending on the style used). Most boards use ranks to indicate the number of posts you have made and to identify certain users. For example, moderators and administrators may have a special rank. Please do not abuse the board by posting unnecessarily just to increase your rank -- you will probably find the moderator or administrator will simply lower your post count.
Back to top Back to top

When I click the e-mail link for a user it asks me to log in.
Sorry, but only registered users can send e-mail to people via the built-in e-mail form (if the admin has enabled this feature). This is to prevent malicious use of the e-mail system by anonymous users.

Posting Issues

How do I post a topic in a forum?
Easy -- click the relevant button on either the forum or topic screens. You may need to register before you can post a message. The facilities available to you are listed at the bottom of the forum and topic screens (the You can post new topics, You can vote in polls, etc. list)
Back to top Back to top

How do I edit or delete a post?
Unless you are the board admin or forum moderator you can only edit or delete your own posts. You can edit a post (sometimes for only a limited time after it was made) by clicking the edit button for the relevant post. If someone has already replied to the post, you will find a small piece of text output below the post when you return to the topic that lists the number of times you edited it. This will only appear if no one has replied; it also will not appear if moderators or administrators edit the post (they should leave a message saying what they altered and why). Please note that normal users cannot delete a post once someone has replied.
Back to top Back to top

How do I add a signature to my post?
To add a signature to a post you must first create one; this is done via your profile. Once created you can check the Add Signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio box in your profile. You can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box on the posting form.
Back to top Back to top

How do I create a poll?
Creating a poll is easy -- when you post a new topic (or edit the first post of a topic, if you have permission) you should see a Add Poll form below the main posting box. If you cannot see this then you probably do not have rights to create polls. You should enter a title for the poll and then at least two options -- to set an option type in the poll question and click the Add option button. You can also set a time limit for the poll, 0 being an infinite amount. There will be a limit to the number of options you can list, which is set by the board administrator
Back to top Back to top

How do I edit or delete a poll?
As with posts, polls can only be edited by the original poster, a moderator, or board administrator. To edit a poll, click the first post in the topic, which always has the poll associated with it. If no one has cast a vote then users can delete the poll or edit any poll option. However, if people have already placed votes only moderators or administrators can edit or delete it; this is to prevent people rigging polls by changing options mid-way through a poll
Back to top Back to top

Why can't I access a forum?
Some forums may be limited to certain users or groups. To view, read, post, etc. you may need special authorization which only the forum moderator and board administrator can grant, so you should contact them.
Back to top Back to top

Why can't I vote in polls?
Only registered users can vote in polls so as to prevent spoofing of results. If you have registered and still cannot vote then you probably do not have appropriate access rights.

Formatting and Topic Types

What is BBCode?
BBCode is a special implementation of HTML. Whether you can use BBCode is determined by the administrator. You can also disable it on a per post basis from the posting form. BBCode itself is similar in style to HTML: tags are enclosed in square braces [ and ] rather than < and > and it offers greater control over what and how something is displayed. For more information on BBCode see the guide which can be accessed from the posting page.
Back to top Back to top

Can I use HTML?
That depends on whether the administrator allows you to; they have complete control over it. If you are allowed to use it, you will probably find only certain tags work. This is a safety feature to prevent people from abusing the board by using tags which may destroy the layout or cause other problems. If HTML is enabled you can disable it on a per post basis from the posting form.
Back to top Back to top

What are Smileys?
Smileys, or Emoticons, are small graphical images which can be used to express some feeling using a short code, e.g. :) means happy, :( means sad. The full list of emoticons can be seen via the posting form. Try not to overuse smileys, though, as they can quickly render a post unreadable and a moderator may decide to edit them out or remove the post altogether.
Back to top Back to top

Can I post Images?
Images can indeed be shown in your posts. However, there is no facility at present for uploading images directly to this board. Therefore you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. http://www.some-unknown-place.net/my-picture.gif. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML (if allowed).
Back to top Back to top

What are Announcements?
Announcements often contain important information and you should read them as soon as possible. Announcements appear at the top of every page in the forum to which they are posted. Whether or not you can post an announcement depends on the permissions required, which are set by the administrator.
Back to top Back to top

What are Sticky topics?
Sticky topics appear below any announcements in viewforum and only on the first page. They are often quite important so you should read them where possible. As with announcements the board administrator determines what permissions are required to post sticky topics in each forum.
Back to top Back to top

What are Locked topics?
Locked topics are set this way by either the forum moderator or board administrator. You cannot reply to locked topics and any poll contained inside is automatically ended. Topics may be locked for many reasons.
Back to top Back to top

User Levels and Groups

What are Administrators?
Administrators are people assigned the highest level of control over the entire board. These people can control all facets of board operation which include setting permissions, banning users, creating usergroups or moderators, etc. They also have full moderator capabilities in all the forums.
Back to top Back to top

What are Moderators?
Moderators are individuals (or groups of individuals) whose job it is to look after the running of the forums from day to day. They have the power to edit or delete posts and lock, unlock, move, delete and split topics in the forum they moderate. Generally moderators are there to prevent people going off-topic or posting abusive or offensive material.
Back to top Back to top

What are Usergroups?
Usergroups are a way in which board administrators can group users. Each user can belong to several groups (this differs from most other boards) and each group can be assigned individual access rights. This makes it easy for administrators to set up several users as moderators of a forum, or to give them access to a private forum, etc.
Back to top Back to top

How do I join a Usergroup?
To join a usergroup click the usergroup link on the page header (dependent on template design) and you can then view all usergroups. Not all groups are open access -- some are closed and some may even have hidden memberships. If the board is open then you can request to join it by clicking the appropriate button. The user group moderator will need to approve your request; they may ask why you want to join the group. Please do not pester a group moderator if they turn your request down -- they will have their reasons.
Back to top Back to top

How do I become a Usergroup Moderator?
Usergroups are initially created by the board administrator who also assigns a board moderator. If you are interested in creating a usergroup then your first point of contact should be the administrator, so try dropping them a private message.
Back to top Back to top

Private Messaging

I cannot send private messages!
There are three reasons for this; you are not registered and/or not logged on, the board administrator has disabled private messaging for the entire board, or the board administrator has prevented you individually from sending messages. If it is the latter case you should try asking the administrator why.
Back to top Back to top

I keep getting unwanted private messages!
In the future we will be adding an ignore list to the private messaging system. For now, though, if you keep receiving unwanted private messages from someone, inform the board administrator -- they have the power to prevent a user from sending private messages at all.
Back to top Back to top

I have received a spamming or abusive e-mail from someone on this board!
We are sorry to hear that. The e-mail form feature of this board includes safeguards to try to track users who send such posts. You should e-mail the board administrator with a full copy of the e-mail you received and it is very important this include the headers (these list details of the user that sent the e-mail). They can then take action.
