Hey there Wuvers,

It’s my pleasure to introduce to you Devon Carver, the new coordinator of the WvW team. Devon is an excellent designer and is passionate about WvW so I know that both the team and WvW are in good hands. As I step away to focus on other projects you’ll be seeing more of Devon here in the WvW forums so please give him a warm WvW welcome!

I’ll see you on the battlefield!

The limit is the same for every team on a map. So if the limit for any team is X then the map limit is 3X. Make sense?

We have a few hundred people working here now and most of them play the game regularly. Every class is somebody’s main

Also, please don’t infer Mesmer changes from the fact that it’s my current main. I’m just a programmer – design stuff like that is somebody else’s responsibility.

As far as I know we’ve never officially announced a map cap number. I could be wrong, of course (happens all the time!), but I believe our policy has always been to not release those numbers.

Hi Dina,

Here are some answers for you:

1. We don’t release this number but this answer can be derived from the answer to your second question. i.e. total players = map cap * 4

2. There is a per-map player limit but we don’t release this number either, though it’s possible to infer from observation. This is especially true now that culling is gone.

3. The per-map player limit is also per-team. Each team has an independent limit and players from one team cannot ever prevent players from the other teams from entering a map.

I’m sure that’s more cryptic than you’d like but that’s the information I can release.

Yes, we’re looking into it. In fact, we had a meeting just today about scoring/rating/matchmaking issues!

Thanks for the cookies I hadn’t seen this thread before they arrived so it was quite a surprise. We weren’t sick, we were just a little busy working on fixing culling

Also, it’s pretty awesome that there were butterfly cookies. How did you know that my current main is a Mesmer?

WvW character progression

The addition of the WvW progression system doesn’t impact regular character leveling at all. Characters will still get regular XP in the usual way and they’ll also get WXP so characters below level 80 can be leveled simultaneously while they advance their world rank.

Very laggy in Wvw

After the patch on the 26th you’ll have a couple more options to play with to control your rendering perf in WvW. Here’s the blog post describing the new options if you haven’t seen it: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/world-vs-worldthe-end-of-culling/

Decrease lag

Posted by: Habib Loew.6239

Habib Loew.6239

Gameplay Programmer

I should clarify here again that the culling fix will have minimal impact on skill lag. Skill lag happens because the server too busy to process everything that’s happening (e.g. it’s at 100% CPU). The removal of culling addresses issues experienced by the client but those changes don’t really impact the skill lag situation. They are fundamentally different problems that will need different solutions.

The low-res models all use standard skins and are persisted in memory so they only need to be loaded once. By setting the WvW Character Limit and WvW Character Quality correctly it is possible to have all player characters (except yours) displayed using the low-res models (and thus the standard skins).

Hmm, yep, the historical data for the EU got borked during that output. I’ll create a new thread with the corrected data. Good catch!

The initial release of WvW leaderboards will present the world ratings and rankings in a similar format to the match results posts we do after every matchup. In the future we’d like to present a great many more statistics about WvW but none of that will be part of this release.

WvW, End of Culling and PVE?!

in Guild Wars 2 Discussion

Posted by: Habib Loew.6239

Habib Loew.6239

One important thing to keep in mind is that this change ensures that all characters within visibility range will be reported to your client. So, even if you choose to turn the WvW character settings down to their lowest (i.e. nameplates only on most characters) while you still won’t see models for every character you will at least see nameplates. In the end it was important to us that no matter what your settings all the players in range will be visible in one way or another.

One of our goals with this patch was to turn off culling without degrading performance. We have attempted to have the default settings mimic the current performance environment as closely as possible, with options to go up or down depending on your machine specs. I strongly encourage everyone to play with the settings a bit to find out what is the right fit for you.

There was a bug with the outmanned buff which caused it to be stripped from players on death. That bug should be fixed in the March update.

WvW ranks & abilities are character based. The best way to think of this system is as alternative/extended character progression.

buki, that’s stale information in the ui/friend system but shouldn’t be related to actual placement in maps.

If you’ve experienced this bug I’m interested in what state your character/account was in just prior. Specifically, had you recently transferred or guested? Had you encountered any party, guild, or chat weirdness recently?

We’re looking into this and any specific information you can provide is helpful.

Loot bags, loot bags everywhere!

Hey all,

We made some very intentional changes to the way we calculate loot. One of the effects of this change is that there is more loot dropping in WvW. Yay! Increasing the loot in WvW was one of our goals and we’re glad that it’s making some of you happy. Also, just to be sure that we were comfortable with the impact it had on loot in WvW we had our economist do some analysis of the drop rates in WvW after this patch. After looking at his results we’re still comfortable with the changes. On a personal note, I was very happy to get a much better badge drop rate when I played yesterday

Tl;dr: it’s not a bug, enjoy the loot!

After a moment were you teleported to the appropriate portal keep or were you just stuck there?

Oops, copy/paste error. I’ve corrected the text version. Thanks for catching that.

I really can’t wait until this system is automated…

Update: No WvW Rating Reset

in WvW

Posted by: Habib Loew.6239

Update 2/7/2013:

We’ve been keeping a very close watch on this week’s matchups and, despite our concerns regarding the recent population shifts, it seems that many of the games are quite competitive. At the same time we’ve been evaluating some possible changes to the math we use to calculate ratings. After examining a number of new methodologies for weighting the outcomes of matches we have found that our existing formulas already do pretty much what we want them to do. Certainly none of the candidates that we tried yielded better results.

In light of the strong community response to the idea of a WvW ratings reset, the results of our ratings formula investigations, and our data on the current matchups we have decided not to reset the WvW ratings at this time. All existing WvW ratings will be preserved and the rating calculation methodology will remain unchanged. Any existing mismatches should be corrected by the system in relatively short order. Now that there is less volatility in the player base for each world we expect the quality of matches to improve more quickly. This is both because the rating system is operating in a less unpredictable environment and because more stable teams tend to produce better results.

Thank you all for your feedback on this matter, and for your patience while we explored the various options. The community response was a key element in our decision making process.

This update has also been added to the OP.

Hi all,

Queues are per map, per team – so there is a queue for TC players on the Eternal Battlegrounds and a different queue for TC players on each Borderlands, and a different queue for each of the other teams on each of the maps.

During the time it takes for players to change maps it is possible for there to be a queue even if there are less players in a map than the maximum capacity because the players taking up those empty slots are still “in flight” between maps. It’s also possible for a slot to take a while to fill if e.g. people see the queue pop, wait until the progress bar for the automatic transfer is almost empty, and then choose to renter the queue. At that point the system will move on and look for other players to fill that slot but all of that takes a bit of time. We’ve watched the queue numbers a lot and generally it’s only a few slots that are in this reserved state at any time.

Just to be sure I ran a quick database query for the last few days and all the queue numbers look quite reasonable.

So I don’t know where in the map those players are when you’re looking for them, but they’re definitely in there somewhere!
