Let the guesses begin?
WebUSB
wtf

Most hardware peripherals such as keyboards, mice, printers, and gamepads are supported by high-level web platform APIs. But, using specialized educational, scientific, industrial or other USB devices in the browser has been hard, often requiring specialized drivers.

Chrome now supports the WebUSB API, allowing web apps to communicate with USB devices, after the user has provided their consent.

what could possibly go wrong?

@lye shoot there's more pictures of us too
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 15:32
I count 7 pictures of me
am I popular now?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 15:36
quick! look at all the pictures and see if you can find someone that shows up exactly 7 times!
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 15:38
you have fun with those 118 pictures
XD
most of them including like 50 people at once

you can't even see my face in some of them
darthmaim
@darthmaim
Sep 08 2017 15:39
now we have to find a face that occurs < 7 times :D
Eearslya Sleiarion

do we actually know what happens when 2 worlds end up having the same score?
this is our current matchup, with 2 skirmish ends to go before reset
image.png
pretty sure it goes to overtime
it's like a third half but the first one to cap stonemist wins
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 15:54
gandara ends up 1st in this skirmish, but if BB ends up first next skirmish...
lol
are you just messing with me or what? :D
yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 15:55
aw, would have been fun actually
image.png
if gandara wins, this is a perfect example of the warscore changes being successful
oh well, this is 1st tier anyway, so it's not like the servers need to figure out which of the two worlds advances to the higher tier...
looks like they tie for second
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:00
hmm
so if this happens in tier 2 or below, neither of the worlds advance to a higher tier?
oh, no, the code I'm looking at it used for computing who wins a skirmish
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:01
oh
it's too early for me, that bit is in another project
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:02
yeah, i was talking about matchups
a VP tie prevents the up/down from happening
(either tied for first or tied for last)
this also affects the match above/below you
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:10
also in case if tier 1 having a tie for first place?
first place in t1 doesn't go up
so it makes them not go up
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:10
exactly
the question was rather, does it affect the 2nd tier? :P
no because the loser isn't tied :P
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:11
i mean, it shouldn't be, but who knows? :P
btw, how are the colors distributed nowadays?
tied for first only blocks the swap up; tied for last only blocks the swap down
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:12
okay, that's good :P
shards are sorted in rank order which I think determines color assignments
highest = green, lowest = red
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:13
hmm
matchup rank?
i mean, then the obvious question is, how is that handled in case of a tie?
just no change?
sorry i'm bombarding you with these questions XD

there were a ton of people walking around with catmander tags
none of them even played wvw

@windwarrior
Sep 08 2017 16:45
I don't set foot in WvW often
Very glad I have a commander tag tho
Also anet managed to make us pay for customization of commander tags
I remember the outcry when they wanted to charge 100g per color
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:48
it was 300g i'm sure
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 08 2017 16:49
Oh yeah maybe
Catmander
Is 150 no?
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 16:49
I thought catmander was just a tag plus badges of honor
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:49
hey, at least you get a lot more tags with the catmander tag
instead of one color
Guess it's another 300g on top of existing tag?
Oh wait
150g if you have a tag
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 08 2017 16:51
No 150
Yeah
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 16:52
i'm glad i got my tag when it was still 100g
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Sep 08 2017 16:53

Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:02
Hmm, actually I just thought of this
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:02
i haven't been in wvw for ages
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:02
are those boundaries also what decide if you get buffs from a claimed objective?
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:02
most likely
so that catmander merchant is in the JP right?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:04
yes

i just wanted to ask where to get the second half of the key and then i remembered i wrote this https://wiki-de.guildwars2.com/wiki/Saphir-Refugium
@Archomeda any shard that dies stays in the same tier
@Archomeda if a shard would swap with another that's tied, you both stay in the same tier
I don't know how else to explain it?
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:36
Cats seem to be the only creature in the game with textured buttholes.
lmao gw2wiki
ok, either i'm blind or stupid (or maybe both) but i can't seem to find the catmander
halp
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:42
It's not -just- in the jumping puzzle
Within the jumping puzzle there's a hidden cat room
Not sure where it is for alpine
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:43
that's what i'm confused about
the info on the wiki isn't that much helpful
currently i'm standing right next to the chest btw
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:47
@lye oh, that last question was regarding the colors
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:47
Trivia[edit]
There is a hidden room behind a wall of vines near a big root in the beginning of the jumping puzzle. The room contains cats and a kid swinging on the tree.
@codemasher
@Archomeda the ordering is undefined for ties
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:48
ah alright
here's hoping we don't get to be green again
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:49
@Eearslya so is that the big root that also leads up to the chest room?
(btw. i'm now trapped in the chest room... since when does that happen? D: )
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:49
There's a chain
to the left of the door
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:50
there should be something to interact with
Eearslya Sleiarion
@Eearslya
Sep 08 2017 17:50
also I have no idea where the cat room is
I just pulled that off the wiki

@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:51
it's in the wall with the vines and stuff just to the left of that huge root before you jump on that platform where the final jp room is

(i hate watching videos for something that just requires a screen^^)
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Sep 08 2017 17:54
there's an opening in that wall on the left of your screenshot
you have to jump it precisely from the platform at the end of the root
smiley
@codemasher
Sep 08 2017 17:55
dang, i need x-rays it seems :D
