well for startes, what would be a problem with a friendlist api that doesnt supply presence information
so just who's on your friendslist\
I cannot think of any negative implications of that since I can also take a screen of my friendslist and post it somewhere
oh yeah, that's perfectly fine
I think there's an issue for just exposing contacts

couldn't seem to find it tho\
I might be lying
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 00:10
but is it a lie if you didnt know?
I uhh.
There isn't enough coffee in the world to make me philosophical today

I just broke my awesome keyboard today, so I blame the keyboard
sprite is bad for keyboards
sprite is good for upset stomachs though, so there's that
hmm, I wonder what the easiest way to get AP is
windwarrior

Mar 25 2016 00:16
linking your GW1 account?
ah, I meant from our backend
like retrieving the data
I should probably stick that onto /v2/account as well
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 00:17
right :P, there used to be a leaderboard for it
so maybe you can look at that
dang I was gonna make a snide remark about gw2efficiency being the new leaderboard, but I'm not sure they've got that feature yet
hmm I don't see it in the backlog either.

Achievement calc code is still in js for and that part of the backend only speaks PHP. ;_; Soon.
Pvp Leaderboard stuff is on it's way tho
Currently porting the crafting calculator code to the other part of the backend so it doesnt blow up the browser when you calculate all ascended item prices
:D
Because 20s+ freezes in the browser are fun for no one
Also the crafting calculator code was... garbage badly architected naturally grown?

Mar 25 2016 01:53
linked gw1 accounts you say? that brings me back to this idea: https://hom.guildwars2.com/character/Lady%20Mimikry
@lye any help plz? :D
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 02:55
codemasher: code to turn that into HOM data lives IN YOUR BROWSER
I'm sure you can track it down
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 02:57
well, mostly the decoding of the bitstring
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 02:57
that's exactly what I'm talking about
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 02:57
i'm to lazy to de-obfuscate the code though :D
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 02:58
if you really stare at it sideways for a while it kind of makes sense
of course I may be saying that because I wrote it
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 02:59
hehe
like in... the matrix, right?
may <marquee> it then...
well, let's see what the code reformatter makes of it
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 03:04
requires: ["base", "arena-base64"]
uhh
arena-base64?
similar to the gw1 build code?
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 03:07
maybe, one of the server programmers wrote it
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 03:09
guessing base64 charsets is fun :D
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 03:09
it's also on the HOM, part of the same request as points.js
should be easy to find
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 03:10
anyway, i'll link this to our trello board and look into it once i have the time for it. thanks for the help!
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Mar 25 2016 08:29
I wrote a decoder for the HOM data when we last talked about it @codemasher
let me see if I can find it
I think it was still missing something
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Mar 25 2016 09:40
I found it btw, but finishing and cleaning it up first before publishing
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Mar 25 2016 17:34
@lye @tivac Question; why is it that sometimes the forum forces me to log in to view anything, and other times it lets me through just fine?
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 17:35
@darthmaim oh, good to know! thanks! :D
@Eearslya because the forums are terrible
(it happens when you've got a session cookie for an invalid session)
smiley
@codemasher
Mar 25 2016 17:45

because the forums are terrible

don't you dare to say that! i've been warned twice already for mentioning that... :P

Did /v2/guild/[:id]/teams always have an id field in each team?
it should
the team ids are fairly bland though
(oh I turned them into numbers okay)
internally the team ids are Team1, Team2, Team3, ...
lye @lye goes for more coffee
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 17:47
What would happen if I deleted a team and then made another?
i.e. would it ever reuse an id for a deleted team?
I'm not sure actually
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 17:48
can't you at some point get a coffeemachine on your desk?
@windwarrior that seems like a lot of effort that would require coffee
cyclic dependencies et al
@Nabrok I think it stores the highest id and just does highest id + 1, so if you delete all the teams it'll start reusing ids.
lemmie dig through the game server code to verify that
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 17:50
Thanks
okay, by my reading there's a counter stored in each guild that's monotonically incremented to generate team ids
that counter is never reset, so team ids should not be reused
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 17:58
Thanks
(until the counter rolls over, it's effectively a uint32_t)
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 17:58
I doubt I'll have to worry about that :)
By the way, how close is adding league rating and position?
uhhhhhhhh not started
I should probably do that
I need to unbreak my local server so it actually tracks league ratings
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 18:04
Somehow I'm currently on a team that's placed 28th ... I have no idea how that happened.
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 18:06
playing good
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 18:07
I'd describe us as average at best
Maybe we were more lucky than good
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 18:08
Out of the last 10 games I can see, I lost 2
you should use gw2pvp.de to save your data
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 18:09
My guild site saves data and can show matches where we had multiple members playing.
Working on adding team information to that data right now.
oh my god you can link people to you profile now
I should play more pvp.
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 25 2016 18:13
I played like 97% of my games on engi
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 18:14
My chart is actually quite even
Comes from trying to get the titles on all classes (missing 3 still)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:12
well @Iye, you've done more pvp than I've done: https://www.gw2pvp.de/profile/7701aa1bf883b81a9c2772bd8542f13f/
:D
at some point I should just grind out dragon
it's kind of lame not having done it yet
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:14
I've rolled over dragon 77 times ...
Perhaps I play too much
nah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:16
omg, guild trek rewards are so broken
in a good way or a bad way
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:16
well, for me good
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:16
You get the reward just for hitting one target
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:16
did the easy one with my guild, and got two trek rewards
huh
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:17
even if it's a "hard" mission
I should join a guild that does them or something
gotta get those commendations
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:17
apparently it also completed the hard one at the same time, since another guild had that one active at the same time
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:17
Join mine
We do them Sunday @ 8 Eastern
We're mixed though, so sometimes it's a lot of PvE and sometimes it's not.
I'm mostly a wvw player
or was back when
started doing raids last night :<
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:18
We do that too, 3 times/week officially
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:18
but yeah, if two guilds you are in have treks active at the same time, you get rewards for both missions :o
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:18
Are you sure both missions were in the same slot?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:19
nope, they weren't
one was the easy one, another one was the hard one
the hard one didn't even have the same trek spot that we just did with the easy one
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:20
Trek is always basically a free reward anyway
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:21
should've filed an ingame bug report, but since we are doing guild missions, i do not have the time to do so
well, true that
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:27
@Iye, I assume you're on a NA server? :P don't think you can join our guild missions on friday evening EU :P
I get free server transfers
but that might be a bit rough
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:31
we only do PvE though, but i'm also in another WvW guild on gandara :)
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:32
my EU alt account is on gandara
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:52
but yeah, i know about the free server transfers, that's probably how some devs ended up in our enemy server last week in wvw
and claimed our garrison on our home BL D:
for ANET
oh we finally unlocked that?
it was super annoying being unable to claim stuff for anet
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:53
I'm pretty sure BG used anet guild tags to bait us during that adopt-a-dev thing.
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Mar 25 2016 21:54
I definitely would pop mine on and off for that
it was hilarious
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Mar 25 2016 21:54
"There's a dev! Kill him!"
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 21:54
well, apparently you unlocked it :D it was so weird to see the ArenaNet tag in EU
think it might have been last week wednesday?
but yeah, when people see an ArenaNet tag in EU, you can assume people are going to follow that :P
or kill that person, if in WvW :D
I think I was actually tagged up in EotM on my glass ele earlier this week
running the anet tag, ofc.
underleveled thiefs really have some gusto
/thiefs/thieves/
I need more coffee, apparently
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 22:12
wait, "Chuka and Champawat" is that the name of one weapon?
not a clue
he only mentioned shortbow though so I dunno
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 22:15
i'm pretty sad though :(
but i understand why
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 22:26
oh, pvp matchmaking at its best
4 people ruby against us :(
and 3 random necros D:
oh well, i guess it happens
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 25 2016 22:54
but have a nice day all, i'm signing off
night :>
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Mar 25 2016 23:12
@lye Tagged up in WvW repping ANet? That's a bold move, cotton.
well, it was EotM, not really WvW
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Mar 25 2016 23:13
Using the ANet tag in any place where players can attack you is a bold move XD
Bet the whole zerg came to your defense, though
Well yeah, again, EotM
If I'm repping in WvW proper I'm not gonna tag up
Bit harder to defend against thieves if they're actually geared heh
(also tagging up on not-melee is silly)
