@lye Would it be possible to expose queue counts for the wvw maps?
not in the near term, no
the singleton server that manages WvW stuff is a terrifying single point of failure and I want absolutely as little to do with it as possible until it's cleaned up a bit

Heh, commanders are always asking if their map is queued, so thought that might be useful info
yeah, totally feel that

Queues themselves need to be fixed, too XD
i'm just a lowly web programmer ._.
anyway, I've got a plan to fix the /v2/account/wallet gem issue but it ended up taking all day
sigh
lye @lye goes home

haha @Iye :D is there any code restructure happening though for wvw? or should we not expect those endpoints in the near future, or some time?
but if you can't talk about what i just asked, i totally understand that as well
i have to shoot someone at the helpdesk of my internet provider tomorrow
i dc'd during two pvp matches, got dishonor for 20 minutes
oh right, before i forget this time, @Iye are you responsible for the trading post as well? or is it someone else?
i have to say that the last changes are awesome, the one where the item list hides itself when an item popup is there
it makes it perform soooo much better

I wanna know who came up with IAmEvonGnashblade; scrolling through the TP until you crash the window is fun

Oh wow, never knew it actually went on PoI
Then again, I don't think I watched PoI waaay back then.
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Mar 29 2016 06:03
...Wow, that PoI makes me really wish I could mess with the TP UI the way they did. That looked amazing.
"Cat Pavit" I love it. Did they actually name it that officially?

there is a :pavit: emoticon in our office chat though now

I wish they'd do more behind-the-scenes stuff like that inspect-element thing. I love seeing how my favorite game works, or even how the company behind it works

I know this is only semi related, but is there any way to get high quality versions of the little copper, silver and gold icons? The only easily available ones are like, 15 pixels high
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 29 2016 09:41
I think the one in /v2/files are 64x64?
no 32x32
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 10:43
Oh right, the fancy ones. I was talking more about the little ones that you see as prices for stuff
However, thanks for letting me know about that one, I might clean it up and use it
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 29 2016 10:46
I usually scale these down to 16x16 and use as a price unit
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 13:33
Ohh yeah that I am Evon Gnashblade mode is awesome too, I remember seeing that :D
Actually, as I mentioned earlier, because the tp is now performing waaaay better than it used to be, I can now use that mode without the tp lagging out like crazy
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:20
Oh @Iye, I noticed something when I was browsing in gw2efficiency; apparently https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/items/64175 has a vendor value of 320 while I actually can't vendor it ingame?
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:20
Yeah, quite a few items have a vendor value for whatever reason
It's just overridden by the NoSell flag
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:21
Huh, odd
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:22
It's kinda weird. I'm pretty sure one of the devs mentioned something about this at some point somewhere
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:23
I can't even; what's the point of it having a vendor price when it's flagged that you can't vendor it?
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:23
Testing?
Could have been an accident or something
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:25
All my ascended armor chests have a vendor price with NoSell, ascended weapon chests are actually sellable ingame, and my Celebratory Dye Pack, Self-Style Hair Kits and Total Makeover Kits also have a price with NoSell
Would be weird if gem store items were an accident
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:26
Wait, you can actually vendor ascended weapon chests? That's crazy
And kinda stupid
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:26
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:27
wtf? That's just weird. Why would that be inconsistent
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:27
Has the same price as the ascended armor boxes though
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:27
I guess it could be some sort of bug
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:27
Maybe forgot to actually put a NoSell flag on that too?
JamEngulfer
@JamEngulfer
Mar 29 2016 14:29
I'd put my money on that. They probably missed a checkbox when adding the item or something
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Mar 29 2016 14:33
I think it might be better to hide the vendor prices on the API if an item has the NoSell flag, since there's no point in it and can bring some confusion; but I'm not sure if it's possible at all and/or how easy it is
Tbh the best option is to just remove the vendor price on the items instead, but I guess that responsibility lies with the actual designers of those items :P

LMAO

@Iye are you responsible for the trading post as well? or is it someone else?

I'm not personally responsible; the web team is responsible for the general health of the UI; the backend is a different team and the design of the UI is a third team.

general health

Is a fun way to put it

we built it, we maintain it
when we notice that perf sucks ass and have free cycles we do a perf pass and it gets 5x faster
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Mar 29 2016 17:47
was just joking, I have a lot of respect of upholding a system like the TP
