I want to bite someone in the Face..... (in General)

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 13 2012 2:57 AM EST

.......when I keep seeing that the T-Chars STILL have almost all of the Top Spots in EVERYTHING!

Is there no way to get this fixed?!?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] December 13 2012 8:50 AM EST

Stop looking.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 13 2012 9:15 AM EST

Ignoring a problem fixes absolutely nothing. This has been where it is since what T85 that had everything super high? This has been a problem for far longer I know but T85 was the kicker with it's mega bonuses.

Bottom line though this has had more than ample time to be properly addressed. If it takes an admin to erase the characters or whatever then fine. If they don't have the time give someone limited capability so they can do it. Just please DO something about this annoying issue.

Welcome back to how I used to feel about various CB annoyances (that are just not addressed) a good while ago.
Nowadays I just don't really expect anything to actually ever get done anymore, and I am seldom (if ever) pleasantly surprised about stuff I even remotely do still somewhat care about.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 13 2012 3:37 PM EST

I wonder what kind of bribery it would take to get the jobs done.......

AdminG Beee December 14 2012 7:31 AM EST

If it's simply a case of erasing the characters then I'll do it next time I'm sober, which rules out the next 72hrs...
Caveat: You need to post the names of the t-chars here and get clarification from NS that I'll not break anything and also confirm what needs to happen to any items / cash on them.

There ya go... :)

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] December 14 2012 9:20 AM EST

Put them on Auctioneer, or something?

The CB economy could use a little uplift.

Unappreciated Misnomer December 14 2012 9:25 AM EST

please destroy the items and cash.

AdminNightStrike December 14 2012 9:44 AM EST

Don't delete the characters.

Sickone December 14 2012 10:00 AM EST

Deleting the characters now and then again every time a high bonus tournament is held is the brutal and possibly overall most time-consuming "quick fix", not to speak of somewhat unfair (why only delete those characters and not ALL tournament characters, that might actually be easier).

You need to actually change the code a little bit, so that the database search of character attributes and most valuable items does not happen on the ENTIRE database, but only on characters in the four "standard" realms (Gondor to Shire).
While you're at it, you might as well also filter out retired characters.
THEORETICALLY, if my wild assumptions on how the database is set up is correct, it could be that all that would be needed should be slightly altering the one line where the initial selection of records is processed in a querry - just make that selection a bit more restrictive as described before.
Then again, I'm no database expert, and I have no idea what actual structures this game uses.

I would be very appreciative if this were done whether seperated from the normal chars or deleted. I know this takes time and effort.

Demigod December 14 2012 3:15 PM EST

I wonder if this thread is related to NS temporarily breaking CB yesterday with a tweak...

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 4:48 PM EST

This thread appeared Before that happened Demi. If deleting is not an option could untraining be one?

Very time consuming but if it could be an option let me know. Hell I would do it if I could.

Bounty Hunter December 14 2012 5:49 PM EST

I would also assist in an untraining effort if necessary to achieve the goal.

AdminNightStrike December 14 2012 8:06 PM EST

I'll fix it, Z, when I can. The last I looked into it, it was very time consuming because of how stats are generated. You can motivate me with active recruiting :)

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 8:13 PM EST

Active Recruiting for help or members for the site NS?

AdminNightStrike December 14 2012 8:25 PM EST

Either or. I'd settle for getting Titan back. He disappeared after I let him start doing some work. If you can find someone who can do mobile development, that'd be great. I've had a ton of people work on that (Titan included), and they've all disappeared. spydah actually tried, too.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 8:34 PM EST

I'll try and do that for ya NS!

AdminNightStrike December 14 2012 8:49 PM EST

The bottom two links on the home page are fixed. There's step one.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 8:51 PM EST

Awesome! Thanks so much for that NS!

AdminNightStrike December 14 2012 9:12 PM EST

You're welcome. Please test, though.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 10:02 PM EST

At first they worked then for some reason they reverted back.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 14 2012 11:10 PM EST

Looks like it is working now!


AdminNightStrike December 16 2012 10:13 PM EST

What other pages, Z?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 16 2012 10:40 PM EST

the Character Attributes page

AdminNightStrike December 16 2012 11:35 PM EST

Ok, so intrinsics are now fixed such that tournaments are in their own realm (....?realm=85 for instance will get you that stat table limited to just tournament 85).

Working on skills/spells/etc.

Zenai [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 17 2012 12:48 AM EST

Too Awesome NS!

Bounty Hunter December 17 2012 5:49 AM EST

NS! ......thank you ;)
