@queicherius, after seeing this a thought came up, since you have a lot of API keys and provide some statistics, can you also expose statistics on the various race/gender/profession combinations?
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 03:57
@Archomeda The "unlocked skins" uses crafting values and such, the "wardrobe" view only sell prices. That's gonna get changed soon (so everything uses the values). And I wrote the stats on the list. :)
@codemasher You can see the value of stuff in the tooltip, if you find something that is off let me know (I know from the past that that can very well happen. :pensive:)

:tada: having a self-congratulatory party here about those gw2efficiency usage numbers
if anybody else wants to share their usage numbers we'd love to see it!
we need better API usage tracking, but still cool to see folks clearly enjoying the things ya'll are building on top of them
windwarrior

hmm, for future client sided stuff you can try to log the useragent and suggest people to set a specific useragent

in any case though @tivac, without you guys people couldn't make all this stuff :D
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 22 2016 17:45
Oh we can do the tracking on our side, we just haven't bothered yet
more interested in new API endpoints/fixes for stuff that game changes broke
it's kind of hard to correlate API requests with actual usage though
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 22 2016 17:46
Yeah, I'm more interested in unique gw2 accounts per day/week/month
still not necessarily correlated due to storing of API keys by apps
but still useful to get a high-level overview of the ecosystem
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 17:47
true, that's why i said, if client sided apps set a specific useragent like "hey i'm app from this and this website", you can possibly track that... although it does require people to actually set the useragent
not sure if it's worth the effort though
annoyingly, I believe a non-default UA header disqualifies the request as "simple" for CORS considerations -- and since we don't support OPTIONS requests it'll cause the XmlHttpRequest to toss back an error
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 17:58
why does web related stuff have to be so complicated and full of restrictions...
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:04
so... will the api crash with the wvw reset that's happening now for EU? :D
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 22 2016 18:04
let's wait and find out
Archomeda

the maps are unavailable to enter... but eh... i'm still in there

Apr 22 2016 18:10
well found the bug
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 22 2016 18:10

the good news is that once reset is done it should start working again
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:11
@Coffee4cr can i transfer to the unknown server that's #1? :D
windwarrior
@windwarrior

famous.last.words
it's wiping the state every time one of the map instance servers announces battle over

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:11
and that's happening every second? :P
MAYBE
should happen once/map
but synchronization is hard so it'll probably be like 10 minutes
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Apr 22 2016 18:12
Do matches in all tiers start at the same time, or do some start before others?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:12
oh there, finally getting the message that i'll be kicked out
@Nabrok they start at the same time technically
I'm not sure why (clock drift?) but sometimes it takes longer for some matches to start/stop
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:13
i'm not even going to try to understand what's even possibly be happening there
distributed systems waves hands
in any case it looks like all EU map instance servers have finished announcing match over
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 22 2016 18:14
\o\ /o/ \o\
there's a configurable delay now before they spin up with the new matchups
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:15
seems so, i was kicked out of gandara EB a minute ago
(I think it's 5 minutes on live?)
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Apr 22 2016 18:15
I guess we'll know any world pairings when it starts?
well
assuming nothing else catches fire
not really sure how safe an assumption that is
Edgar Doiron

Apr 22 2016 18:15
:popcorn:
Archomeda
@Archomeda

I'm like. 80% sure everything will work.
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Apr 22 2016 18:15
hmm, scores are 0 in-game, which is normally the cue to start spamming the gate
somehow I think it's a bit early for that now though
matchups are announced
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:16
gandara + ruins of surmia
we now have a 87 queue for EB

Did the other 2 servers not get paired?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 22 2016 18:17
EU wasn't getting all paired
due to some having way higher pop

20xx is europe en, 21xx is fr, 22xx is de and 23xx is es
that makes a lot of sense
it seems "fine"
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 22 2016 18:20
everything is just fine!
no one sees the unknown servers!
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 22 2016 18:20
thats just because mos.millenium.org has hardcoded the number of matchups
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 22 2016 18:21
yep
bad programming

guh wvwintel isn't using the ?world parameter I think

David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 18:32
@tivac @lye Glad you guys are happy about the numbers, without you guys it'd not be possible building cool stuff. :)
What I am still curious of, what exactly does the ArenaNet Partner Program do for these content producers? And do you think we could convince higher ups to let application developers in too, if we got together the people of the biggest pages and showed how many players we actually reach?
I've no idea what that is, but the page says websites/apps. I'd recommend just signing up and see where that goes
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 22 2016 18:37
It certainly can't hurt
I suspect the deal is if people buy gw2 through your affiliate link we kick you back some :moneybag:
no reason API-powered sites couldn't get in on that
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Apr 22 2016 18:38
sad thing API powered sites usually happen after someone buys the game
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 18:39
Well, I signed up a while ago and never got a message back. Same for the person that did gw2shinies. :pensive:
And I dont know of any site that is in on that deal, but I didn't ask around too much. Anyone here? :D
Pat Cavit
@tivac
Apr 22 2016 18:40
@windwarrior yeah, though once there's another expansion...
@queicherius I'll ask around, that sounds like an oversight
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Apr 22 2016 18:40
nope, from what I have heard they invited a few people who applied in the first few weeks, everyone after that was just ignored
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 18:41
I suspected it was also for publicity through twitter and stuff, but the page doesn't really talk much about what happens
@darthmaim Yeah, that sounds like what I heard. I signed up about 2 hours after it went up. :D

Nabrok
@Nabrok
Apr 22 2016 18:45
How have the queues been the past week on YB? TCs had queues on 2-3 maps all week, so tonight is probably going to be crazy.
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 18:45
Oh btw @lye that random API key that was broken was a browser extension issue. The person reinstalled their browser and it showed up correctly afterwards.
not too bad, low 20's when DK is on map; small queues on BLs during reset normally
@queicherius phew. That's super annoying, but I'm glad you guys figured out the issue.
If you happen to know which extension I can try to fix the account site compat with it

back in one of the tournaments we had to get some wvw guilds to volunteer to go to eotm during reset
David Reeß
@queicherius
Apr 22 2016 19:20
Queues is better than spamming "join" like a retard in pve >_>
YB has a pre-reset server meeting to assign maps and times to guilds and such
but even with that, the map my guild is on usually is queued when I get home from work
it'll be interesting to see how the bits are worked out once the NA server merges are announced
