@queicherius I'm late to the party about Matrix, but from a preliminary reading of the specs, I'm not seeing anything about handling a high number of servers.
IRC is using a branching model for that, which is pretty effective to handle scalability.
Matrix, however, seems to want to use "a everyone send to everyone" model, which isn't all that great for managing server scalability.
This is bothering me given that they seem to have and emphasis on the concept of homeserver, which may easily result in 1 server for every 3-5 user in a room, meaning a possible 50+ homeservers for a GW2 Guild Room.
On the other hand, they require TLS and work with tried and true protocols (JSON over REST), which is a good thing.
All in all, this is a very premature tech (Client-Server API is r.0.2.0, and all other Specs are "unstable"), which need to grow before I give it any kind of serious thought.

I hope it can become a replacement to IRC (mostly because IRC seriously needs to die), but I'm not holding my breath.

LOL so true

it served me well, back in the days

Yeah, but right now, it's like a Granddad that's not aware he's retired.
It was created in the late 80s... And nothing was able to correctly replace it because nearly no-one makes an effort to setup a new open standard. XMPP tried and failed. And Matrix may very well fail too.

I don't believe it has what is needed for it to dethrone IRC. at least, not right now.

@Aralicia Yeah, I pretty much share your views. I am just excited about what it might grow into.

@queicherius

So there is the item Bag Expansion and the item Bank Tab Expansion and the item Additional Crafting License and the item Storage Expander HOWEVER the item Character Slot Expansion is nowhere to be found. Is that a whitelist issue or do I have to hardcode things?

AFAIK there is not a character slot expansion item; double-checking now. But as mentioned those items are basically hacky proxies for functionality; character slots are applied directly to your account.

How difficult would it be to have an end point that shows all the wvw rank titles (and their required points) that supports languages?
Hmm
Very easy
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 17:14
it can even be added to /v2/account, just like the wvw rank etc
nah /v2/account isn't localized
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 17:14
ah right
forgot about that
probably just going to have /v2/wvw/ranks
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 17:25
but you can add the title id to /v2/account then, which can be matched with /v2/wvw/ranks
not that it isn't easy already by just matching the min/max rank to it
That's true

@lye Alrighty. Was just checking, thanks! <already hardcoded items>
Not sure exactly what you're doing, but there's an open issue to add account-wide unlock counts to /v2/account -- arenanet/api-cdi#359
That might help a bit, not sure
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 17:44
Oh yeah that'd be cool. Right now I am just doing let unlocks = (account.bank.length / 30) - 1
In other news, that was the DDoS: http://i.imgur.com/V2p0lzz.png (every line is 1 GB/s)

To be fair, it forced me to un-fuck my network configuration
So i learned more than I lost :D
@codemasher I totally forgot to generate .png versions of the tiles last week; since we've got a release tomorrow I'll do it tomorrow :<
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 19 2016 18:11
:fire:
tomorrow you can release some things with the patch, and then other with the hotfixes
:P
I wish; I've got nothing going out with tomorrow's release
@Nabrok arenanet/api-cdi#361

@Nabrok
Sep 19 2016 18:21
Awesome, thank you
I really want to get the skirmish support in for the release after next but it's such a large change that I'm worried about it breaking :|

Sep 19 2016 18:27
@lye thanks! (tbh i had no time to look at it anyway :D)

Out of the series "lost items"... anyone seen the "White Mantle Outfit" item? :(
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:24
That is super weird, all the other outfit items exist
might have mis-clicked or something; I'll look up the ID and whitelist it
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:24
Thanks <3
lol https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/outfits?ids=all is gated by the item whitelist -_-
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:25
{"text":"API not active"}
gated?
o
I wonder why that never got turned on
78011 should appear in ~5 minutes maybe -- that's the consumable unlock for the white mantle outfit
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:28
Wee! Many thanks
And I was wondering that too, since /v2/account/outfits is on... D:
yeah I think I maybe just missed it?
I sent out an internal email in june saying i was going to turn it on
and it's on everywhere except live?

there's a commit in the config repo:
Turn on some endpoints:

 * /v2/stories
 * /v2/backstory
 * /v2/character/backstory
 * /v2/outfits
 * /v2/account/outfits
 * /v2/finishers
 * /v2/account/finishers
 * /v2/wvw/abilities
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 22:32
and yet:
The following paths are exposed by this API:
  /v2/outfits [l,d]
Just turned it on, config should go out in a few minutes >___>
David Reeß

Sep 19 2016 22:33
Neat

Sep 19 2016 22:33
Asked for an item, got a whole endpoint.
it's a horribly boring endpoint I'm afraid
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:33
Worth it

I wish; I've got nothing going out with tomorrow's release

See, now you did have something!

Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 22:34
too late, he already deployed it
still nothing for tomorrow D:
dang I could have come in early tomorrow for it too
wonder if I can back out the config change before it's deployed
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:34
Nope, already online
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 22:34
lol
rats
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:35
Thanks for that tho. I was missing that data. :D
Yeah it was meant to go out with /v2/account/outfits since that would have made sense
Also -- config changes clear caches -- https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/items/78011
David Reeß
@queicherius
Sep 19 2016 22:35
:+1:
Also it's been 10 minutes, how does time go so quickly
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 19 2016 22:36
so ehm... what's the commit message that turned on /v2/outfits? :P
*actually* turn on /v2/outfits.

This should have gone out with CL 35111 but I am not smart.
