was there a problem with kills/deaths yesterday between 19:00 UTC and 20:00 UTC? i doubt sfr only got 23 kills across all maps between 19:30 and 20:00, with no k/d on ebg at all. other matches look similar

@lye So there are two API keys here with more than possible masteries (you talked about that here before) - they are both GM accounts
I remember vaguely we talked about figuring out if an account is a GM before, when an account with a fully unlocked wardrobe was there, but I cant find any flag for it anywhere

Don't GM accounts actually have 'GM' in the name?
they would be the only accounts allowed to have 2 consecutive capital letters
er wait no
character names
hm
David Reeß

Their accounts both start with "GM " but idk if that's always the case?

I don't know if there's anything stopping normal players from naming their account GM xxx, but character names definitely

oh
I wasn't expecting that
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 01 2017 19:16
"Not Gm Darthmaim" wasn't allowed either :P
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 01 2017 19:16
I just meant that normal character names can't have 2 capitals
David Reeß
@queicherius
Jul 01 2017 19:17
Just checked my two keys, they do have "Gm" in their character names
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 01 2017 19:17
that's probably as good of a flag as you're gonna get
wait, capital or not?

didn't add @lye a special gm flag or something to accounts?
David Reeß
@queicherius
Jul 01 2017 19:18
@Archomeda I thought that too, but I cant find it anywhere
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 01 2017 19:19
hmm
or was it that gm accounts couldn't be checked and that it was fixed?

@codemasher
Jul 01 2017 19:25
hacks everywhere
I don't think I ever got around to adding the GM flag
afaik all the GMs should be in the arenanet guild though, might be wrong about that
David Reeß
@queicherius
Jul 01 2017 20:49
@lye Both of the accounts are not in the guild - at least according to the API

What've you guys found to the best most accurate way to show skill damage values without crawling the wiki?
Chris Horak
@chrish16
Jul 01 2017 22:30
to be the most*
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Jul 01 2017 22:31
define damage values
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 01 2017 22:46
should be hit_count * dmg_multiplier * Power * WeaponStrength / Armor
hit_count and dmg_multiplier are both in the API: https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/skills/29856
and for the displayed damage the armor value is always 2597 at level 80
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 01 2017 22:53
and the wiki uses 1000 as Power
Chris Horak
@chrish16
Jul 01 2017 23:04
What is typical weapon strength? Average exotic? What about for non-weapon-slot skills / when weapons aren't equipped?
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 01 2017 23:06
exotic sword is the default in the wiki

Seems to check out for most everything except for some reason: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Entangle
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Jul 01 2017 23:56
that is hardcoded in the wiki
no idea why
Chris Horak
@chrish16
Jul 01 2017 23:56
The value is correct in game too; how random

The direct damage does not vary or scale with power or damage modifiers, although it is increased by vulnerability. This is because the direct damage is inflicted by the roots themselves rather than the caster.
