Thread: No medals for week 1?

  1. #1

    Default No medals for week 1?

    When the top-10 did not reset at 12-midnight I thought perhaps it will reset at 12-noon NY time. No top-10 reset and no medals. Anyone here anything official about this?

    Technically the week wasn't a full week as the server started on Wednesday, and I don't think I've ever seen them give medals for the first non-complete week. Medals will be at midnight of this coming Sunday, I believe.

    If anyone can confirm this is what's up, and that it's not another bug, I'd appreciate that.

    I was told they we're waiting for a whole week from server start making the medals given out on Wednesday but that would be kinda odd..

    Ah, I'm sure that's it... I remember that happening on other servers now. I'm usually not in contention for a medal right at the start, but thought a little shiny one would be consolation for me being in the damn boonies and slim pickings once players start coming out of BP. I will be jealously watching the robbers board change over the next few hours. Grrrrrr.

    Same thing with the last round of s1. That's usually how it works.

    I think week 1 medals are becoming more and more rare, the server has to start on a Monday or at the latest Tuesday for a true week 1 medal to be earned.

    The server started mid week. Medals will be given out next Sunday after a full week of play.

    So, very odd. Got a medal at 8pm NY time. Top-10 has reset on a very strange hour.

    It was actually news to us, I suspect largely for two reasons, which should hopefully be clear in a moment. After talking to TechSupport about it, it turns out that the server is programmed to check to see if medals should be awarded on Sunday midnight, and whether or not medals should be awarded is based upon the percentage of players in Beginner's Protection. If medals are not able to be awarded at that regular time, then the server has instructions to continue checking (I think every hour) until enough players are out of BP and medals are able to be awarded. Thus, those accounts that spawned when the server started on Thursday at 7 pm, came out of BP tonight around 7 pm, and so enough accounts were out of BP when the server checked at 8 pm, and boom - medals awarded.

    So, two reasons why this really hasn't come up before, I think…

    one is that it seems like our servers are being started later in the week, so more players are in BP when the usual Sunday night time comes around (or I may be imagining that),

    and two, and probably more importantly, with the enforced extended BP and late week starts, it's unlikely we'll be seeing medals for the first week at the day and time at which we are accustomed, due to the number of accounts still in BP at the usual time.

    This week's medals will be awarded at the time at which we are accustomed, since the majority of accounts will be out of BP from here on out. (/me crosses her fingers and hopes a boatload of silver bots don't spawn and mess that up)

    I think your doing it wrong. Usually you do "it" with a Man or a Woman. But hey who am I to dissuade you.
