changed it
speaking of wvw (embeds), now that we have skirmish data, what do you (the people who are playing wvw regularly) actually want in the embed
those tower UI things
you gotta put those in they're crucial

Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 05 2017 17:20
like what's in the WvW objectives
the guild upgrades in WvW objectives
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 17:22
those should be there iirc
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 05 2017 17:22
is there any sites that show them?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 17:22
specific upgrade information is under https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/wvw/upgrades/15
but dunno how to link to get the active ones
Edgar Doiron

Apr 05 2017 17:23
:P
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 17:24
active ones... hm not sure that it's there, but you could figure that out based on how long ago it was flipped I'd imagine
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 05 2017 17:24
no you can't
cause it's the guilds that decide what goes in
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 17:24
oh you mean the switches?
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Apr 05 2017 17:24
not the Tier advancement from dolyak upgrades
yeah, and the passives in there too
Darqam
@Darqam

how on earth is RoF EU T3 in wvw...? :D
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 17:29
you've gotta remember that t1 is dead and the active stuff happens below it
smiley
@codemasher
Apr 05 2017 17:29
it used to be T4 since like forever...
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 17:30
speaking as SFR, well we suck and we're still t3.. maybe we made some room up top.

t1 eu isn't that dead, at least if there's a proper matchup (and not fsp vs 5 french servers)

Apr 05 2017 18:28
is there actually a use for /regions/ in the middle of v2/continents?
labels maybe
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 18:28
I find myself working around it.
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 19:26
@lye Okay weird one for you.
v2/maps gives a set of floors for each map, e.g. Dragon's Stand yields [0,1,2].
This means I'd expect that a query for continents/1/floors?ids=all to only have dragon's stand in those three floors. Actually, Dragon's Stand also turns up in floors [0,1,2,3,47,48]. The other floors look like repeats but what's the point of them?
is it purely so you can see other adjacent maps when in instances?
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 19:28
could those be for the story chapters in Dragon stand?
I have literally no idea :<
I'm guessing something to do with instances
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 19:29
Now the question after that is, does anyone actually know why those are there?
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 19:33
surely it's got to increase the api payload size
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 20:49
Could somebody who has completed Maguuma Mastery Insight: Salvation Pass Mastery please tell me if there is a mastery point icon on the map there? I'm not seeing an entry in map 1149 + wondering if it appears ingame or not.
Darqam
@Darqam
Apr 05 2017 20:51
from memory I know it was there on release
I can check in a minute
it's there

ugh i can tell already this is going to be madness
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 05 2017 21:02
madness you say?
all of the map bits are madness
I don't understand how map generation in gw2 works
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 05 2017 21:03
give us access to the code, then we'll take a look at it
and conclude a few months later that we don't understand it either

we already discussed this, relocation from EU wasn't an option.
:D
there's non-EU people in here that could apply to look into the abyss
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Apr 05 2017 21:06
just the map api itself is quite difficult already
i can't imagine what the backend is supposed to be
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Apr 05 2017 21:09
like the event coordinate system on crystal meth after two weeks of no sleep
fml that stupid mastery point
it isn't actually on the map
there's a script which places a marker above the gadget that you can interact with
this is almost certainly the same case with adventures, I don't even want to look at it ugh
