@lye this was whitelisted yesterday: https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/achievements/1257
maybe it ties into the new ranked system?
wait, that doesn't make any sense... id 1257 is not even new
is some GM cheating again? :P
@madou probably one of the backend servers restarting for the patch
@Archomeda isn't "Loot Bag" what's dropped by mid-level WvW players (40-60)?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:15 UTC
with "rare" as rarity? i don't think so
ah good point
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:15 UTC
as far as i know, the loot bags in wvw are just whites
I'm trying to remember where in-game that's awarded
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:15 UTC
green loot bags are awarded in hot maps
Oh, it was the 2013 wintersday achievement rewards I think
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:15 UTC
beats me
i'm finally done with having a sane build string serializer/deserializer
man... screw bitshifting
i just have to push it so @darthmaim can use it too xD
July 2013 living story achievement reward; I was close
It's got a level-specific rare equip inside
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:18 UTC
eh? XD
what release was live during that time?
bazaar of the four winds
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:25 UTC
hmm
then what is that achievement used for?
that achievement was the choir bell achievement one year
and then was deleted and replaced by another one
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:27 UTC
huh... interesting
  {
    "id": 1257,
    "current": 3,
    "max": 10,
    "done": false
  },
from my account
yeah I don't know what's up with it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:28 UTC
what's the achievement that replaced it?
2013 choir bell achievement
lemme see if I can find it
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:30 UTC
request for @queicherius, show the achievement id somewhere on gw2e :P
is it called "Become the Bells" by any chance?
ah dang I was hoping it was still in the markup
I'm pretty sure it's The Bells of Wintersday
will be able to check in a few minutes -- syncing live content to generate map tiles

@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:31 UTC
oh wait, the one i mentioned is probably the 2012 one
why do the categories not have the year in it -_-
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:31 UTC
request for @queicherius, when I select a random achievement to do, I dont want to see achievements I completed already :(

@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:31 UTC
it now suggest me to do Twilight III
for 1ap
ehhh
@Archomeda I don't know, that was annoying me as well
Looking at the content, not sure which year it's from without digging through p4 history
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:32 UTC
sometimes achievements carry over
but it's the achievement you get from finishing bell choir songs
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:33 UTC
don't they?
iirc they're usually copy-pasted into new achievements
so you can progress them again
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:34 UTC
but the achievements for the snowy aura are probably active again, but if I did them completed?
those have never not been active :/
AFAIK you could have been working on those all year
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Dec 13 2016 16:35 UTC
That's right
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:35 UTC
I'll check tonight if I have completed achievements in Wintersday 2016
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:37 UTC
Can't you check by id either?
Higher id usually means added later
much to the dismay of many
ids are not guaranteed to be monotonically incrementing
nor are they necessarily correlated with time
there definitely were some bits early on where it skipped around by a couple of months
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:39 UTC
assuptions are the mother of all fuckups
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:39 UTC
Urgh
Are ids assigned manually then?
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Dec 13 2016 16:40 UTC
I'm guessing that's because ids are assigned to works in progress, and some things that started later finished sooner?
technically they're not assigned until something's ready to ship (I think?)
but that process has changed a lot over the years
actually maybe it hasn't changed that much
anyway sometimes things that aren't ready to ship get ids
and don't ship
because they're not ready etc
I may or may not have any idea what I'm talking about; I don't really know much about the content pipeline
Nabrok
@Nabrok
Dec 13 2016 16:41 UTC
UUIDs for everything!
yep!
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:42 UTC
Oh please no
I can expose those if you want
but internally everything has a UUID
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 16:42 UTC
UUIDS ftw!
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:42 UTC
then my build string will get bloated as hell
anywhere in the API you see a UUID it's because there isn't an id assigned for that type of object
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 16:42 UTC
Then we'd know which set of identical achivements came when.
e.g., /v2/pvp/seasons
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 16:43 UTC
Any other surprise API stuff slipping out with the build?
actually I lied, they're GUIDv4s I believe
pvp stuff
working on getting that out to live now
new map tiles today? I don't know if there's a new map or anything
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 16:43 UTC
PvP isnt a surprise. Hope you got to enjoy release waffles!
probably nothing has changed
oh yeah waffles, I should get some waffles
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:43 UTC
I like how the CS community decided that globally unique numbers are too hard, so just threw more bits against the problem
to make it very very very very unlikely that two processes generate the same number

windwarrior
@windwarrior

Er, wait no, DR's tiles
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:49 UTC
They are really a dutch thing D:
I actually had stroopwafels recently
they're super tasty
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 16:51 UTC
they are best when the stroop is also hot
i had packaged ones, unheated, on a boat
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:52 UTC
As long as they are not cold
You can get them from machines here as well (what are those actually called?). But they store them below 10 degrees in there
celsius
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 16:53 UTC
New build hype!
Archomeda

vending machines?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 16:56 UTC
ah yes!
vending machines
but yeah @lye, can you poke the responsible team for the achievements panel to include the years for the festivals? and while they're at it, also sort the historical category by release date? :P
do achievement categories/category groups even have a sort field
categories do i believe
or the groups
wait
yeah, the groups do
order
both do, hrm
doesn't help if more than 1 category has order: 0
"WvW Fall Tournament 2014", well at least the wvw team included the year 2y ago

someone told me that war was getting a buff
i don't see a buff in these notes
Archomeda
@Archomeda

war wasn't mentioned in the balance heads-up post
along with 2 other professions i think

Piercing Light: This trait no longer causes traps to daze enemies and will instead inflict slow on enemies for 1.5 seconds on the initial trigger of a trap.
this is terrible in PvE
cus bosses are permaslowed anyway, so traps don't do their usual 100 breakbar damage anymore :(

PvE is terrible

FTFY

insider trading
is it if the notes are public
that's just being crafty
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:08 UTC

Bomb and gun paths will now be randomly chosen, regardless of scale.

woot, i dislike doing the stealth path over and over and over again

Fractal avengers will no longer be able to stomp the wrong player.

i want this to be applied to pvp and wvw as well D:

windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 17:09 UTC
well, I just wish mesmer downed 2 would reliably port me out of their range
or... add a target quarter second daze to it PvE only
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:11 UTC
Its only crafty if its before the notes a public. I report people like crazy if I have reason to suspect they're violating their internal-test-group NDAs

A Shards of Glory Converter can be purchased from the existing League Vendor. The converter will exchange Shards of Glory for a Timeless Bag of Items.

lol

i'm not short on those wow

Players will be retroactively awarded rank-ups for every time they’ve repeated rank 80.

holy shit, some people will get lots of rewards

Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:19 UTC
No retroactive rewards. Just Retroactive rank #.
You already got it when you re-ranked to 80.
Archomeda

(i'm still at rank 77 iirc :P)
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:19 UTC
It just exposes the rank you could only get via the API before (80)+(x)
wait the rollovers don't come with chests?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:19 UTC
@lye IF i misunderstood the intent. Please go poke at someone.
I mean. I'm still the 167 Id have been according to the API.
gotta get my waffle first
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter

It just exposes it in game.
Bring them one to make them happy.

Dec 13 2016 17:21 UTC

On Friday’s reset (12/16), skirmish points will change:
1st place will be awarded 2 points.
2nd and 3rd place will be awarded 1 point.

interesting, creates a better opportunity for 3rd world to get a comeback

Damage: Total outgoing damage to alive enemy players. ... how much damage can you do to dead players?
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:21 UTC
You mean "downed' players
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:21 UTC
they probably mean not downed players
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 17:21 UTC
positive reinforcement, you get a point even if you lose
it could have been 1 point/0 points
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:22 UTC
Nah. 1/0 provides no real way to catch up.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:22 UTC
yeah, but that would've been no different than 3/2/1
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:22 UTC
But it lessens the incentive to fight for 2nd if you can't make 1st =/
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:22 UTC
relatively it'll still be the same
with 2/1/1 matches might get closer
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:22 UTC
Nope. It'll theoretically lead to more 2v1 against #1 to try and slip ahead and then ahead of the other guy.
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 17:23 UTC
yeah, but 2/1/1 is the same as 1/0/0
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:23 UTC
but hey, i'm not a hard core wvw player
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 17:23 UTC
same as 10/5/5 being the same
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:23 UTC
yeah.. but it was 3/2/1 first, and it will become 2/1/1, which is a change
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Dec 13 2016 17:23 UTC
yeah
are the hidden patchnotes there yet :(
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:24 UTC
and giving 1 point even if you lose is just what you said, a positive reinforcement
if it was 1/0/0... well... yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Dec 13 2016 17:25 UTC
i agree
is there a flag on the api for confirming to destroy items?
no
I thought it was just exotic+
Archomeda

definitely not :P
oh hmm

some rares have this as well

@lye

You no longer need to type an item’s full name on time-expired items when destroying them.
Using Gem Store “Time Expired” items will open the Gem Store if that item is available.

another flag?

Show Salvage Warning Expireable or something? :P
wait
Salvage?
I was just going to have SalvageWarning/BulkConsume

I mean. yes, you can add the winter-vendor icons, but thats it. There's actually new PvP vendors. =)
yeah but those aren't on the actual map tiles
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:52 UTC
...is too tired to remember thats its own layer
API doesn't expose the vendor locations since it's impossible to tell which vendors are actually accessible without running scripts
and I'm not running game scripts in API servers because that'd be cray
Jonathan Andrist
@rwfrk_twitter
Dec 13 2016 17:53 UTC
Against! :P
Never run scripts when you can query their state.

Oh. S4. RIP

You know, you should probably include the start time in the pvp league UI. So many people asking why it hasn't started yet.

I was like... I live in UTC+1, so I should add 9 hours to that timestamp uhh ah 21:00 UTC+1 so thats in 2 hours
good thing The Netherlands is not using their initial idea of UTC+00:20 anymore

Different cities used to have different times

its even worse, from 1909 til 1937 The Netherlands had a timezone of UTC+00:19:32:13

That's why Greenwich Mean Time ... it's an average of the times they had in those cities.
