@Archomeda sorry your gems aren't accurate, I don't have enough visibility into the issue to give you a good answer why.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2016 09:21
hmm odd :(
oh well, i hope you'll find the issue some day
if you need me for anything, just ask ^^

@Archomeda maybe you can ask support to get back 1028, because the API says you have that :D
that way there won't be anymore problem to look into
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2016 11:11
haha XD
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 11:11
or ask for an extra 400, for science

@lye have you ever figured out if it was possible to get the different guild missions?
through the API
so if you choose PVP only, PVE only, WVW only, Mix
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 16:45
lawton's taking a leave of absence, so API support will be minimal for the forseeable future
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 16:46
wait what? he's gone again?
oh I just saw where you quoted that
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:21
it says no poll running
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:21
yeah =/
they don't want our opinion
I would love a solo/duo queue
not sure that's the majority though
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:22
I don't know about this one ... it's not something I'm interested in personally
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:22
also that's the other thing
if you're not interested, will you vote?
cause people not interested could skew these results
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:22
Well, I'm interested in pvp, just not in 1v1s.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:22
well it's not 1v1
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:22
At least not without further context (i.e. I need to beat this guy to take the point)
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:22
it's the limit on queuing as pre-made
so instead of queuing rank 5 man premade, you can queue up to 2
duo queue
or not party at all, solo queue
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:23
So, if you're 3?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:23
but no more 5 man premade queue
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:23
or 4?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:23
nope, you can't
limit of 2
at least that's how I understand it
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:24
But there's another queue for 3+ though?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:24
not in rank
unranked you can do what you want
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:25
You couldn't do your missions in ranked.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:25
no, but you can do them in unranked
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:26
poll is actually up now
yes is winning the early vote
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:27
yeah I'm still debating
Most time I play, i duo queue (I'm not a serious PVPer) and sometimes I would go with a 5 man pre-made of guildies, but we'd get rekt
duo queue I had better win rate
didn't have to carry the rest :P
also If I check the "pros" playing, they're all duo queuing with teammates and never running pre-made
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:29
I voted for no ... if I want to play with a couple guildies I dont want to be restricted to unranked
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:29
but unranked has the better arenas
:P
Capricorn <3
what's your thought on the Coloseum?
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:31
I like it
I hate that the achieves are temporary
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:34
I like the Colosseum, but I think it's because I have lightning flash as an Ele, which gives me great movement advantage
any class with "blinks" has an advantage
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:42
Do we know when next season starts?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:42
I would guess in 2017
we've had 4 seasons right?
in 2016
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:43
season 1 started in december last year I think
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:43
oh
i'm guessing we're getting the balance patch next week with the Halloween patch

https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/pvp/seasons/44B85826-B5ED-4890-8C77-82DDF9F2CF2B start date 1st December
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:45
maybe we'll get the same then
I know they wanted to get the results from this poll first
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:46
I want to try to finish the coloseum achieves before it starts ... I expect we'll have a new "year of ascension" to complete.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:48
how did those work?
blob
did you need to complete them all , every season?
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:48
No, over the whole year.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:48
like if I missed one, i'm screwed?
oh ok
but you think another season will bring another set of achievements?
for a new legendary?/
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:49
For example, by the end of season 3 I had everything done but a couple class achievements and one divison cross
and then I did that in about 3 games in season 4.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:49
kk
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:50
Presumably, not sure if it'll be a different back skin legendary or some other slot.
Legendary armor without raids would be awesome, but it's probably not that.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:51
This message was deleted
Legendary armor for PVP is kind of useless no?
since pvp doesn't use stats
unless you're big on PVE and PVP
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:52
Yes, but they gave us a legendary back so who knows
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:52
hehe
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:52
But for WvW it would be great.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:52
yep
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:52
WvW is really the place that stat switching is the most useful.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:52
I wonder if they have stats for players who ONLY plays PVP, or ONLY plays WVW
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:52
And yet WvW players are the least likely to be doing raids
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:53
also raids
been spending way too much on raids
:P
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:53
Kinda raids ... I mean you have some roles with different stats, but most people are still just straight zerker.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:53
true
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:54
There's way too many dps checks for it not to be like that.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 19:54
I know, which makes me sad
I like hard mechanics, and learning them, and the fight being hard and all. I dislike the "against the clock" mentality
which brings us to those full (almost) zerker groups
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Oct 12 2016 19:57
Right
In wvw if you're facing a tough opponent you can say to yourself "wow, that hit hard, I'll change some of my stats to give me more vit/toughness" ... that's not something you can do in any pve content.
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Oct 12 2016 20:22
yep, and right now, you only switch trinkets, cause it's the cheapest way to change stats
fuck switching armor, and those 10g runes on it
that's another QOL we need
a revamp of the runes and how they work
they should be tied to the slot and not the armor
omg, I just thought of that on the spot right now
and it makes total sense
LOL

Looking at http://reess.carina.uberspace.de/gw2-patchnote-search/ - is there a way of, in bulk, pulling out the patch notes for all skills, by skill, with the associated update date? (about to embark on a rather large skill update history project for the wiki)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2016 23:48
maybe @codemasher knows something
i have almost no knowledge about mediawiki

derp just realised Rees' page is 1 year out of date

@Archomeda
Oct 12 2016 23:49
well, poking @queicherius then :P
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Oct 12 2016 23:49
well I've generated a list of all the revisions to pull out, I just can't think of a simple way of extricating the relevant data from the patch notes
revisions for the skill pages*
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Oct 12 2016 23:50
what seriously gitter, you embed massive youtube videos and large gists, but not xkcd??

yea right

@ChieftainAlex I just parsed the wiki into a long list and then filtered that list recursively. That was super hacky code (which is why it broke when the wiki formatting changed)
