New Tournament Code - 9/18

edited September 18, 2018 in PVP

Hey folks,

Along with the release today, we've released new tournament code to support special tournaments and future support of swiss format tournaments. If things went right, this should be invisible to you. Please let us know if you see anything odd in tournaments.

    This is good news. One step closer to swiss. Thumbs up

  • I got "bye" notification 5 min before tournament even started. And at least 20.00 eu AT, you couldnt see (or was false) roster of teams.

    That's pretty strange, we'll look into it.

  • The group I was in had a bye. But then we soon got kicked out of the tournament afterwards for no reason.

  • Ats arent working at all, getting kicked out without even playing. Winner is picked randomly it seems. Need a fix asap.

  • We're looking at the issues. Unfortunately, this tournament time isn't recoverable. You shouldn't be stuck or anything. We're looking at the logs now.

  • Ahhhh, a feeling of massive relief. Progress in the pvp side of the game. Good or bad there working on it at least.

  • I don't think anyone cares anymore. The implementation of Swiss takes way too long. This kind of ''warm up messages'' are way overdue.

    Yup I agree, whatever you tryna do now to safe pvp it’s simply too late. Nobody cares, only way to revive pvp scene is to give money(€,$) or gems as prizes other than that have fun wasting your time trying to save something that’s not saveable

    How many patches that changed the underlying tournament code without actually changing tournaments except for bringing in new bugs did we have now? 3? 4? 5? I honestly can't tell anymore. I'm pretty sure the people working on pvp now have no idea how to work with the code present, probably because the people that made it have quit long ago. The pace of changes in PvP is abysmally slow and by now we've probably reached the state of the community has probably reached the point of no return.

  • Update on this. There are still bugs. However, we're not going to revert the code, as the bugs are only showing up in the live environment and we can't repro them on our internal servers. We've added a bunch of logging to help us track things down, but be aware that tournaments may be unstable until further notice.

  • New update. We got enough logging from the tournaments overnight that we felt we didn't have anything to lose by reverting the code today. So tournaments should be back to normal. Our current plan is to redeploy the new code next week.

  • New update: Ui issues remain, but are just display issues. They should finish just fine.

    As far as what swiss tournament is:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss-system_tournament

    We'll be using a combination of swiss and single-elim. You'll play a number of swiss rounds and then the top X teams from swiss will move to the bracket. This is still a bit away though.

    "A bit away" is a few weeks, few months or nearly a year?

    Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.

  • Hey @Ben Phongluangtham.1065
    we played the at 3 hours ago and i was in a group with friends & we enrolled. then they kicked me cuz a other friend wanted to play instead of me. enroll got cancelled and everything. it was xx:13 i believe. then they enrolled again with the new mate. they waited for qpop cuz they got a bye and then i had a qpop at like xx:30 despite me leaving the group and not being enrolled anymore and them enrolling again with the new teammate. we were pretty confused cuz i ended up in the match & the rest of the tournament while the other friend didnt get a qpop at all. u might wanna look into this. if u need screens just pm me on this account. my ingame name was Floodi.5961 and i was in a group with Flandre.2870 ... i cant see our team name atm cuz ui is still buggy. it clearly said that my enroll got closed. hope this is enough info for you to resolve the problem. have a nice day!

    You can still have hopes though, people probably still do care. But i agree it really takes too long for a feature that's not " super special " since it existed in GW1
