Warbrig pillage on friday noon Sep 23 Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Let's test the reworked booty division

what? pillage on a warbrig
when? friday, sep 23 at noon game time

to thank all who turns up to help with this testing, i'll be paying 2k poe per battle regardless of win/loss payable on yer home ocean (condition being puzzling on station during battle & not straightlining in melee)

all i need is a /tell stating yer pirate name & ocean at any time during the pillage
eg /tell ryujin piratex on opal

i would go through my chatlog at the end of the pillage to tally up the number of battles ye participated and would be logging into all oceans around noon game time over the next few days to /pay ye

Yikes, I'm looking into this now. It seems that something specific to Ice is booching things up, since it's working fine in my test environment. At least we caught this before it went live!

Edit: Well, I just did a quick test on Ice and was able to get a bunch of trinkets from the divvy OK, so it must be something more specific. I'm wondering if the Yeti expedition was a factor...

how many lockers do you need for a valid quick test? we have 2 pillages of 4 and 3 boxes respectively, one with BK and TH ignored, the other with BK ignored, no yetis, and only poe.

edit: could recharting be a factor?

All three of my Junk pillages had a yeti expo and trinkets were awarded.

That was before the most recent update though...

Hard to give an exact number, I'd say if you have over 5 lockers and none of them were items, it's pretty likely something didn't work right.

Edit: Tested recharting as well, didn't seem to cause any problems with receiving items.

Yeah, before this latest update, it would just give the item to a random person if there wasn't enough info to make a decision. After the update, if no one on the ship has any pillage points, then it will give PoE instead of items. My guess is that something that happened during the warbrig pillage reset the voyage tracking.

I was just able to do a yeti expedition, with ice chests, and still receive items from the lockers, so I haven't figured out specifically what it is yet.

at the end of the pilly i placed 12k inside the booty and Ryujin placed another 32k. Perhaps manually placing poe in the booty messed things up? This would not explain Saintdiana's experience however

Just tested, doesn't seem to cause any problems. Let me know if you think of anything else out of the ordinary that might have affected things during the pillage. I'll add some additional logging on Ice to help narrow it down.

a little more testing..
I. 2 battles, both rumble, won, 4 LLs, all poe
II. 7 battles, 2 of them a loss-re pair, 4sf/3 rumbles, 3 LLs, 1 item+poe

from the latter i've disproved all i could think of overnight: crew shares, all won or not, dnav, mix of rumble/sf, expeditions ignored, route chosen. i died in I.2, and in the II.6 (loss), so it couldn't be full survival. currently out of ideas.

Were any lockers won from other ships without them being dropped by greedies? Like as a commod won in the plunder, rather than dropped?

not today, no. and i didn't lose any, because i had so few in the first place. all those early-grapples, though eventually overcome in the melee, helped none with the greedy numbers.

edit: did the divisions with items all consist of 3 lockers? or possibly multiples of.

glimmer of an idea: i have logs for 5 pillages since the point system, and it looks like the 3 without items had 2-3 leagues of empty sailing before porting, while the 2 with items had a battle in the last league. it would make sense that if something happened, it would be in the interval between last battle and divvy, otherwise any subsequent battles would duly award points (unless that same thing prevented the points ever being added again?).

Still seeing just poe from LL's, we did have a yeti expo (whose chests also seemed to be divided on the points system)

Still not sure what specifically caused the voyage tracking to occasionally reset, but thanks to the logging added on Ice yesterday, I see how to work around the issue. I'm updating Ice now with a bugfix that should take care of things. Please report back here and let us know how your booty divisions go after this release.

So, you've fixed the poe issue in LL's, we didnt get any. But the booty division is still warped.

3 people, 2 did 11 battles, 1 did 4 - the person who did 4 got more than one of the people who did 11 and the same as the final person aboard. Don't think the point system is working properly still.

This is the one report I've seen of an issue since the Sept. 24th release, server logs confirm what you're reporting. I'm looking into this further and adding some more logging to help track down what might have happened in this case.
