Question about Obsidian SMH Map Rotation Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

From the release notes 2017-06-30 we saw
 
Sea Monster zones will now be "rotated" in order to focus activity into one particular zone each week. Only one type of Sea Monster map will drop from pillaging battles during that week. The enabled map type will change each Sunday.


I believe the rotation properly occurred between HS and KH on 09/16 but after the release on Thur 9/20 the rotation switched to Atlantis early, it ran through those few days that were supposed to be KH and then continued on it's normal week. Now on Sat 7/29 the rotation to CI happened early.

I'm hoping maybe Forculus can comment on the inconsistencies as I'm trying to nail down the timelines for wiki stuff

Thanks for looking into this. I just went through and reviewed the SMH rotation logic, and you're correct that it's happening on Saturday rather than Sunday. Aside from that, the rotations do appear to be working as expected, with each one lasting a full week and proceeding in the correct order.

Yeah, I'll leave it as-is for now. Saturday seems like a good day to start hunting down the newly enabled maps.

The SMH rotation won't do much of anything, especially once black markets come out. If people can get any of the 4 charts from chart boxes or black boxes, the only difference the rotation will make is which charts are worth 5k and which are worth 100k.

I'd like to see ALL forms of chart spawns follow the rotation, or you might as well just get rid of it all together.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO , it limits those of us who prefer one type enough already achieving the intended effect. Although I have been very vocal in ditching it altogether.

Atlantis cit runs ruin the pillaging scene, literally for 2 weeks it's near impossible to fill a war brig pilly while Atlantis rotation is on, I think citadel runs need to become more challenging or bring smh badges back. Or make rotation last literally a week instead of 2weeks+.

Another way is up the bigger ship pay out in wild seas, make it closer to what you get at osprey in emerald, it is nowhere near right now.
