Clan point question (in General)


Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] July 21 10:51 PM EDT

I noticed it says I have about 500 clan points even though I only have about 50 battles done in the last 24 hours? Are points not calculated in real time anymore?

You are rocking because you are hitting me. So stop it!

Eldarion [The Z-Fighters] July 22 3:06 PM EDT

LOL, Kefeck I was just kidding of course. :) But really stop it! :) :) :)

What I want to know.... is why sometimes it takes several hours on Monday for Clan points and Clan rankings to show up. I always wake up right when I can start making CPs again, but a lot of the time clans don't get rankings, and the bonus that goes with them, until several hours later.

Yeah, I end up slow playing on Monday until the Clan Record Keeper wakes up and updates scores so bonus turns back on.

I just knew others have noticed it, too! I didn't want to bring it up since this game is not so alive as it used to be, so I didn't want it to seem like a big deal and cause CB2 to be shut down. I'm probably being a bit paranoid, lol. I really like CB2, despite the bugs that seem to be arriving due to lack of maintenance, such as the growth chart bug. Believe me, these bugs aren't that big of a deal!

The one bug I hate though seems to have always been here since CB2's inception, and that's the PR bug that doesn't allow a character's PR to go past a certain point without causing an error. <--- THAT bug needs to get itself fixed, because us veterans can easily go past the limit of around 22 million PR.

That bug is likely at exactly 21474836.48 which is 2^31/100, that would be a signed 32-bit integer / 100. Interesting one, depending what CB2 runs on code wise could be easy fix or total mess.

Thinking about this a different way it could be seen as a feature, it creates an "end game" where it becomes about optimized setup versus just being bigger than your competition.

The bug happens around 21.9 million PR

Hmm, that's a strange number for a computer to get unhappy.

Using float instead of int, IEEE 754 32-bit base-2 floating-point variable has a maximum value of (2 &#8722; 2^&#8722;23) × 2^127 &#8776; 3.4028235 × 10^38 and 16-bit floating point or integers too small, even combination methods wouldn't cap out at that number.

Ahh the fun of trying to reverse engineer a system as a user.

Clan bonuses weren't activated until 11am CST, lol. Is there someone that has to manually flip a switch for Clan bonuses to become active? It's a different hour almost every Monday.

Nurse Joel Bell [The Z-Fighters] July 26 4:18 PM EDT

Fyi, we can start gaining CPs at 5am, for comparison. It used to be that we could start gaining CPs at 5am, and whichever Clan had positive CPs by 6am would start getting their bonus based on their Clan ranking.

lol. I think it's safe to say there's something buggy with cb's clock and the way it counts clan points.

Eldarion [The Z-Fighters] July 27 11:13 AM EDT

The BA clock falls behind as well until the reset, but not sure if that was always the case. We do still have a community here, would be cool if someone were come take a look, and do a small maintenance update.
