#475106 Fighter Callout

Posted by minark on 26 October 2013 - 07:45 PM

I think we should add the ability to call out other tycoon fighters as a post fight speech option. Maybe add the check box that says call out fighter and then have a blank box next to it similar to contract/sponsor boxes where we can put in a fighters ID number and be able to call out anyone in the tycooniverse :)

#790389 Wolf and Aaron

Posted by MMATycoon on 18 November 2016 - 07:21 PM

OK, so this sucks but here goes. To cut a long story short, I'm having to delete Wolf and Aaron for cheating.

 

The long story:

 

Back in October 2015 when I started converting the site to a mobile site, Aaron helped me out and converted maybe 30 odd pages of the 200ish pages. I gave him a folder in FTP so he could check the pages were working properly. He was someone I'd talked to plenty of times, had him on Skype, he lives in the same city as me and actually works less than a mile away from my house, so I trusted him with that access. There was nothing important in that folder so I didn't really give it much of a second thought and actually forgot all about it. Since then, I'd talked to Aaron plenty more, have written an article for his fightplatform site, which he gave me admin access to etc..

 

However, a couple of weeks ago, some guys from the game came to me and pointed out that Wolf and Aaron had some very weird stuff going on in their gyms. Their fighters didn't appear to be training, yet were high skilled. So I checked it out and it was indeed fishy - they'd edited their fighters somehow to be far better than they should have been (including hiddens) but I didn't know how. As I say, I'd totally forgotten that I'd ever given him FTP at this point (this year's been pretty hectic with my first kid, getting married etc... turns out that stuff makes you pretty forgetful).

So anyway, me and my programmer (and also people helping from the game) spent a couple of weeks trying to figure it out, programming in checks etc under the assumption it was SQL injection, access to an admin panel or through the forums maybe (hence the arcade disappearing, if you noticed that). It would have been nice to just ask straight up but we couldn't really risk that in case they did anything dodgy... I mean, we thought they were pretty sound people who were just fucking around and not doing anything malicious but you never know.

 

So after programming a load of checks, we couldn't figure out what they were doing, so I just asked Wolf straight up yesterday and he fessed up straight away. I'm grateful for that, cos he could have been a dick about it and played dumb or given a false lead. Instead he apologised and told me straight away. It wasn't a total waste of time doing all those checks because it's useful to have them in place anyway.

 

To explain what they actually did - basically nothing existing on the site was compromised, Aaron just wrote his own script, uploaded it to that FTP folder and ran it to edit their fighters' skills. Obviously I've deleted that FTP account now.

 

 

I'm not actually deleting them, I've just changed their passwords for now and done a forced logout. I'll delete them properly once their fights are all done then retire the fighters to the Bahamas. All finances have been removed etc. I'm not editing their hype as that would screw over people they're fighting.

 

Oh and if I've been shit at replying to your emails the last few weeks, this is why; it's been pretty stressful / busy.

 

 

To pre-empt some questions.

 

1. Are you a fucking moron? Yup. Never trust anyone apparently.

2. How long's it been going on? I dunno, I haven't asked yet. I've only spoken to Wolf briefly. Aaron is in Thailand so I'll talk to him when he gets back.
3. Are any of the other alliance members in on it? We looked at their fighters and they looked OK. A couple of them aren't training properly but their fighters' skills look fairly representative of the amount of training they'd done.

4. What happens to fights that are already booked? I have set all their hiddens to 1, so if you're fighting one of them you've basically got a free win. If you want me to just cancel a booked fight if you are fighting one of them, let me know and I will do that. I've also cleared all finances.

5. Was the Russian hack anything to do with it? It wasn't them but maybe indirectly. I asked someone from the game to download a tool to try and find SQL injection possibilities. That tool might have been dodgy and sent that hack attempt our way if it sent a list of sites using the tool back to the programmers. If it was totally unrelated then it's a massive coincidence because we were using the tool that day and the day before.

6. Can you undo a result against their fighters for me? If people feel really strongly about it, I can write a script. I am OK with doing that but I would personally prefer to move on from wasting time on this as it's already wiped out 2 weeks. As it's my fault though, obviously I will do what people prefer.

#790506 The Wolf on Tycoon Street

Posted by Rambo on 18 November 2016 - 11:10 PM

BREAKING NEWS

Today marks the biggest black stain in tycoon history since Mentor was busted for multi's and scamming big dick pills, when two sub-par managers at best, were busted for fraud, fight-fixing, and straight up being douche bags. Congratulations dickheads, you've turned Vendetta into the Enron of MMATycoon. You can read the full story here.  

 

To nobody at Convicted Inc's surprise, Wolf, Aaron, and Vendetta still suck.

The V for Vendetta once again stands for V for Vaginas. Thanks to two special pieces of garbage, Wolf and Aaron, the success of the entire alliance comes into question.  Cheating was obviously the only way mediocre managers like Wolf, Aaron, and even Ryan Epicity (how else could this guy crack the top 10 lol.) could succeed.  We've seen dirt balls in the past; Mentor, Steel Penn, Castor, but Wolf and Aaron take the cake and go down in history as the dirtiest scumbags to ever curse the game with their presence.

Congratulations assholes, and good riddance.

#246065 A basic fighter creation lesson: Distributing your points

Posted by myronmonroe on 23 February 2011 - 06:37 PM

I think this is one of those things EVERY single person that plays this game should know, so that's why I decided to make this post.

When you are putting points into your fighter on creation, which one of these strategies will be the best in the long run?

Best way to spend 111 points:

Fighter #1: Put only 1 point (USELESS) into SKill #1, and spend the maximum 110 points (WONDERFUL)on Skill #2
or
Fighter #2: Spread the points out, putting 55 (COMPETENT) into Skill #1 and 56 (COMPETENT) into Skill #2



Here's the basic concept of this game you need to keep on mind:

It is MUCH MUCH faster to go from 1 to 55 than it is to go from 56 to 110......Training slows down dramatically as your skill level goes up. There are no exact numbers, but I will use this picture as an example:

So, let's take a look at Fighter #1 and how long it will take him to get both skills to wonderful:

Posted Image

Now, let's take a look at Fighter #2 and how long it will take him to get both skills to wonderful:

Posted Image


In conclusion, Fighter #1 was MUCH easier to get both skills to wonderful than Fighter #2. If you have a fighter and you are thinking about his long term success, it is better to get as many skills to 110 as you can. He may not be as well rounded in the beginning, but he will thank you in the long run :thumbup:

#730826 Convicted Weather Report: Ronda Rousey, Dinooo, & Qlimax

Posted by Rambo on 07 January 2016 - 06:59 AM

Since Ronda Rousey's KO loss to Holly Holm, she's been focusing on her life outside of the cage. During a recent press conference she was caught off guard when a surprise guest showed up to the stage for an interview.

A cameraman captured Ronda's OMG CK is going to be here!?! moment.
 
 

RR:  I'm wet.

 

CK:  First off, gross - I wouldn't fuck you with Dana White's head.  Second, I have that effect on women.  Third, it's nice to meet you too.  Lastly, stick to questions please.  My time is valuable. Time is money.

 

RR:  How shocked were you when dinooo announced he would be leaving Convicted?  Did he talk to you before he left?

 

CK:  It wasn't anticipated, but I'm not shocked.  He's always been very active in tycoon chat so we were aware he had a lot of buddies outside of Convicted.

 

RR:  Did he talk to you before he left?  

 

CK:  No.

 

RR:  Did he talk to any of you before he left?

 

CK:  The only one I'm aware of is LT.

 

RR:  Do you know what he discussed with Lance?  Did they part on good terms?  Rumors are circulating that LT assaulted dinooo during his departure from the Convicted Inc building.

 

CK:  We'll leave TMZ news to noob alliances.  I have no recollection of that.  Let's just say LT is loyal to Convicted.

 

RR:  Reports say LT hit him with a chair...

 

CK:  No comment.

 

RR:  ...Kicked him in the skirt on the way out...

 

CK:  No comment.

CK:  Seriously?

 

RR:  Dinooo, GBK, and Ruphus Duphus started it ---

 

CK:  The name, they really called it Qlimax?

 

RR:  Yes.

 

CK:  Qlimax what?

 

RR:  That's it.

 

CK:  What?

 

RR:  Just Qlimax.

 

CK:  Why?

 

RR:  He named it after some music festival he attended as a child.

 

CK:  You're fuckin kidding me, right?

 

RR:  No, I'm not.

 

CK:  No comment.

RR:  There were rumors that there's been a rift between members in Convicted for a long time.  Is that true?

 

CK:  No, I haven't heard that one yet.

 

RR:  They say it started sometime after Chuck Grace was voted into Convicted.  That Dean was against the idea of adding a cocksmen to the alliance.

 

CK:  He just created an alliance called Qlimax with a former Cocksmen and a pikachu loving manchild GBK.  I don't think he has any issues with cocks-or-men or the two combined in any way.

 

RR:  Did you just suggest that Dean Sutherland is....

 

CK:  Look, we've all heard the rumors about Dinooo and his boy toy Dean Sutherland Jr.  I'm not saying he is or isn't or that they're true or not true.  It's just coincidental, that's all.

RR:  Are you worried about Qlimax competing with Convicted as a top alliance?

 

CK:  No.

 

RR:  Do you think that they will dethrone you for alliance of the year?

 

CK:  No.

 

RR:  With Dinooo, GBK, and Duphus at the helm, you're not worried about their potential.

 

CK:  Dinooo wears a skirt, GBK still loves pokemon, and Duphus needs viagra to get out of bed.

 

RR:  Wow, you're really not worried about them at all?

 

CK:  No.  They'll compete with the likes of LOD and Tycoon Alliance.  They're a name change and a long way from competing with the likes of us.

 

RR:  Any closing statements?

 

CK:  We are Convicted.  We are one.  We do not forgive.  We do not forget.  Expect us.

#600835 How much notice do you need for the fight engine changes to go live?

Posted by MMATycoon on 09 September 2014 - 09:57 PM

As in the title? I am presuming Monday's fine?

 

There are loads of little things but the main ones are ref standups, overall fight scoring and leg kicks affecting speed and agility not stamina.

 

There isn't a massive amount that you would be able to gameplan for until you have experienced how you think it all works, so not a massive amount of notice needed imho.

 

 

details;

changed scoring system including fight rating, (n.b. will likely see less 100% rated fights)
improved transitions to focus more on the transitions variable itself
improved flex vs agility for advance position; added agility plus split what you need based on top vs bottom so bottom needs flex but top doesn’t
improve subs; so that bottom needs flex but top needs agility, whilst being the taller fighter makes subs from the bottom more likely but less likely from the top (minor difference).
bug fix - commentary display for getting rocked sometimes bugged out at the start of rounds
added more commentary to indicate sustained ground stalling by a fighter    
added fight graphics for reversals
diminishing returns for scoring points on takedowns and subs.
reduced energy loss for attempted escapes    
added clinch attempts to post fight stats    
fixed alignment of little arrow things on the fight imperial stats bars   
fixed - occasionally the fight engine would do a move you hadn't asked your fighter to do

also debugged the crap out of it for about 5 days and found a few bug that would have affected the chance of certain standup things landing, sometimes positively and sometimes negatively depending on tactics. hopefully this will have been the cause of any "how the hell did that happen?" fights for you in the past, so it won't happen again.

 

scrap NCs due to being in the wrong location. Instead you will be teleported to the right location and get a 10% hit to energy and morale but the fight will still take place.

 

Added 16th sept;

Additional tweak to standups from yesterday's changes.

Altered the "ground moves per minute" calculation. The most important impact being that we won't have a massive drop in moves per min when people go high counter. I'll continue to work on this one as post of this requires me editing commentary lines individually.

#496468 Everything you need to know about learning speed

Posted by VeikkoK on 16 December 2013 - 12:01 PM

Ok, in recent weeks I think I've seen these same questions asked about 20 times, so maybe there should be a sticky or something about this?
 
What is learning speed?
 
In broad sense the learning speed refers to fighters ability to response to training, and it is based on the value of the hidden skill, fighters age, energy and morale levels, quality of the coach or sparring partners, class sizes and the current skill level. But the main interest is usually in the value of hidden skill, which is a constant value and determines whether the fighter is capable of learning things fast, given that his training is planned properly. By ticking "fast learner" in fighter creation you get boost for this skill, but other than that, you cannot influence fighters learning speed hidden.
 
In short, usually when talking about learning speed we are talking only about the hidden skill related to the learning speed.
 
What learning speed is not?
 
Learning speed and fighters intelligence are two completely different things. Intelligence (related to "knows how to adapt his game plan") can be tested with IQ tests (can be won on Spin and Win and sometimes you get random test via mail or when travelling with jet), and refers to "fight IQ", i.e. how well the figher responds to things happening during fight.
 
In short, learning speed has nothing to do with IQ or intelligence.
 
How to test fighters learning speed?
 
  1. You need to have a VIP status in order to test the learning speed accurately. Check below for non-VIP possibility.
  2. Install Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox (there are similar add-ons for other browsers but there are reports that they might not work properly for everyone): https://addons.mozil...n/greasemonkey/
  3. Install TycoonTools Greasemonkey scripts (Only Skill Snapshot Stat Extractor is needed for this, but other might come handy also): http://widing.arkku.net/tycoontools/
  4. Your fighter needs to have some secondary skill where you didn't assign any points in fighter creation and which you have not trained at all (remember that for example training clinchwork will give small gains to elbows also etc). Assign your fighter to train that skill in 1on1 training session with Elite coach. Make sure your fighter have 100% energy and morale.
  5. After training, go to Fighter skills snapshot page (http://www.mmatycoon...atssnapshot.php), select the skill in question and if you have appropriate Greasemonkey scripts installed and enabled, you should see a numeric value under the skill snapshot bar. This value is the current skill level of your fighter in that skill.
  6. Skills where you did not assign any points at fighter creation start at 1.95. It is believed that the maximum skill value you can have after one training session is 7.5 (useless++). Lowest value I have encountered is 3.9, but my guesstimate would be 3.5 for lower limit. Depending on your preferences, you could think that fighters with learning speed under 5 (useless-) are not good enough (some people use 4.5 and other 5.5 etc), unless other hiddens of that fighter are very good. Unless the learning speed is very low, like under 4, I would still test the fighting abilities of everybody (i.e. see how they perform in few QFC's and what does their ToTT say) before sacking them.
  7. Note that above values are for 18 year old (or younger), for older fighters you should expect smaller values, although I do not have experience to tell how much is good enough for example 25 year olds. And also, if you have only 2on1 training available, that shouldn't make huge difference, so you still get good approximation of the learning speed that way. And if you have already trained the skill little (say the skill value is 2.5), you can still compute the difference (new value - old value) and see how much that is compared to maximum gain of 5.55, but note that with high level skills the learning speed decreases.

 

Other issues:

 

  • For non-VIPs there is an approximate method for determining the learning speed: The pop from useless to abysmal in two sessions, is combined gain of 8.05 points,  ie. over 4 points on one session. That would equal learning speed at least 1.95->6, which is rather good. If the fighter doesn't pop even in three sessions, he is a very slow learner. Between that, depends how tight criterias you have.

  • Learning speed is constant from until fighter hits the age of 18, and after that it declines gradually when your fighters age.

  • For 25 year olds (or 19-24 for that matter) there's not public information available about range of learning speed. I've heard somebody had learning speed of 7 as 25 year old but I doubt it. If anybody makes 25 year olds and wants to share what kind of learning speeds they have gotten, please let me know and I'll add the range here.

 

 

 

I'll add other info if something comes up.

#233939 Optional Primary's

Posted by Rambo on 14 January 2011 - 05:52 AM

QUOTE (Eversor @ May 5 2010, 09:46 AM)
You could choose either one for one of the four primaries:

Boxing / Kick Boxing
Muay Thai / Karate
Wrestling / Judo
BJJ / Sambo


The primaries would affect secondaries something along these lines (both offensive and defensive):

Boxing has better punches than Karate, but Karate affects kicks.

Kick Boxing has better punches than Muay Thai, but Muay Thai has better clinchgame.

Wrestling has better takedowns for shooting from afar, but Judo has better takedowns from the clinch.

BJJ has better chokes, but Sambo has better leglocks.


No gamebreaking changes, just a small coefficient to add a little more flavor. Existing fighters could have a one time opportunity to change their primaries to corresponding ones if they so wish for.




Reviving a quote form an old thread and although not an immediate important must have improvement, I think this is actually a really, really, good & creative idea that would add a lot more depth, etc. Could use some revising of course, but the base idea is great.



Instead of every fighter being boxer/muay thai/wrestler/bjj we could have something that makes them a lil different. The only challenge is finding the perfect style to pair up with it's counter part. I.E. to "argue with the quote" Boxing & Kickboxing could be paired up, but then what would you pair up with muay thai? And for Sambo, I'd say it gets a small boost to GNP & takedowns, and BJJ is submissions and defensive grappling. Maybe instead of "Karate" call it "Martial Arts" to give it a more broad horizon for the imagination of styles. Who knows.


The only reason why I could see somebody suggesting against it is; everything fuctions as it is, it could be extremely complicated.


Contrary to some belief, you really wouldn't have to add any additional flavor text. The most challenging thing in my mind about this would be tweaking the benefits you'd get for what primary, and programming that into the system, and also I don't know how secondaries and primaries mesh to create a "total" for the game's fight engine, all that is extremely complex to me. So if it required a major overhaul, obviously it really wouldn't be worth all the time but I firmly believe that the idea of seeing and being able to select one of two options, per primary, would be awesome.



Not 100% sure if this was shot down or not, I seen a thread about "adding primary's" recently closed, but I'm not asking for a complete overhaul or anything like that, I would think it could be as simple as adding selective/optional text upon fighter creation? --- if that makes any sense. If it doesn't I could elaborate.

#838950 Just wanted to say:

Posted by Kanis on 01 December 2017 - 07:48 PM

Many years ago,..I lost "everything that mattered". I then spent 12 years in a self punishment cycle that included too much drug use and no concern for my own well being.

A long story will be cut short to one day ,finally, looking myself in a mirror and seeing a glint of the warrior that I used to be, looking back at me for the first time in a decade. He said. "Now, you are just being stupid"

  When I found this MMATycoon, I was trying to sober up.  My mind was a constant static of chaotic energy.

I am now 3 months away from my 4 year mark in the game.

I am incredibly sober (if you don't count weed =) just being honest). 

I am now back in my career field, Entertainment rigging- concerts and I am, again, one of the premium guys in the Oregon and Washington areas.

 

My closest friends are pleasantly shocked, because , I was told  "not many can come-back from where I was in my mind, heart and soul."

 

I am currently ranked 33 of 21518 (0.15%) and IF this is the closest that I ever get to this peak, I wanted to shout it out now, that You have NO idea just how much this environment was the therapy of mind that helped me come back from that cliff that I was on.  Thank you for that

                                        Kanis.
