bug: leviathan scales ended way too soon (in General)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 8:36 AM EDT

our clan activated the ritual "leviathan scales" yesterday afternoon as seen from our clan wall posts:

"Leviathan Scales -- Active!"

-- Demigod on July 23, 2010 04:50 PM

Oh well then, I'm going to activate it, see if it does more good than bad.
If somebody else wants to take the clan lead for a while to keep doing it, just come on up and claim it ;)

as of this posting it is no longer active but should have lasted 24 hours.

Did it also only cost 100 CP?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 9:06 AM EDT

sickone set it up and i am not sure if he checked our cp before and after. once we get the duration fixed we can check that when we set it up next though! ; )

Sickone July 24 2010 10:59 AM EDT

Looked like it cost slightly less than 100 CP, but I assume that's because somebody else in the clan was already fighting at that time.

i just noticed something else that may or may not be bugggy. when i look at the admin page it shows our current clan score and i assume that this is the number it uses to reduce for the cost of the ritual. it seems to use raw score instead of adjusted score though.

it could just be lag and if any other clan leaders can test this please do so!

AdminShade July 24 2010 11:37 AM EDT

adjusted score = raw score * modifier is it not?

so when subtracting score from the clan´s total, it should do so on raw score.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 11:39 AM EDT

i hope that is the case, but feel it should be the score it comes off of. i guess we wait to see!

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 12:04 PM EDT

i just activated it again before posting. we will see how long it lasts this time.

Demigod July 24 2010 12:34 PM EDT

It'll last twelve hours. They stop on Sundays.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 1:44 PM EDT

unless it is set for six like the others, that is.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 24 2010 1:53 PM EDT

Scales is set for 24 hours. It is possible to cancel the ritual beforehand though.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 1:54 PM EDT

sickone was in charge, i doubt he cancelled it though. ; (

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 2:12 PM EDT

i shot him a message to see if he even went into clan admin after setting up the ritual. i am the leader again now so will watch it.

Sickone July 24 2010 4:03 PM EDT

I wasn't even online, so it was kind of impossible for me to manually cancel it :)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] July 24 2010 5:27 PM EDT

Any excuse for a coup.

Sickone July 24 2010 7:50 PM EDT

It's a time-share :P

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 24 2010 7:58 PM EDT

except for that slacker loch! he just sits around platituding all day!

AdminNightStrike July 24 2010 11:45 PM EDT

Costs deduct from raw scores. Doing anything else makes no sense.

The score displayed on the admin page is, sadly, cached. Sorry :(
(Yes, I'll get to it.)

The timing functions for expirations is pretty robust. We tested that more heavily than anything else, really. Try to keep an eye on it, and remember that at 4am on Sunday, all rituals go away.

Remember that you will cancel a ritual if you forsake your god, if you manually do it, if sunday triggers, or.... not sure when else. Maybe that's it?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 25 2010 12:07 AM EDT

thanks for the info, will watch for it to happen again or hopefully never happen again.

Sickone July 25 2010 3:04 AM EDT

Here's a crazy idea... what if under certain weird conditions fighting against somebody with a "no enemy rituals" ritual actually cancels your clan's ritual instead of suspending its effect ? Or somehow trigger some other weird separate check for 6 hours instead of the correct 24 hours ? Or you know, something to that extent.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 25 2010 3:17 AM EDT

The only thing I can think of, is that it might have shut off with a server restart or something to that extent.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 25 2010 7:52 AM EDT

it is still active as of right now by the way. ; )

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 25 2010 7:53 AM EDT

* Leviathan Scales -- Active! Remaining: 04:10:14

Lochnivar July 25 2010 10:24 AM EDT

indeed... and the post battle logs are still showing a +5 to my AC

AdminNightStrike July 25 2010 10:59 AM EDT

Ok, so it looks like at cache flush, I set it to cancel all rituals unless it's the Sunday clan rest time. So, I reversed that logic. This would explain both things -- the ritual canceling early, and the ritual lasting into Sunday time. Prior to this fix, all rituals would be canceled at cache flush Monday through Saturday. Now, they should just be canceled on Sunday.

Lochnivar July 25 2010 11:29 AM EDT

makes me feel like a member of the mythbusters' crew....

... now for the mustache!

Sickone July 25 2010 12:59 PM EDT

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 25 2010 1:03 PM EDT

thanks! ; )
