Hi Everyone,

THE TINKERS' TOURNAMENT
Throughout the entire month of September, the Tinkers are running a server-wide alliance tournament.

As well as being fun, it's also our opportunity to test the Tournament API key.


TOURNAMENT API KEY
Has now been released.  You can issue it from the API keys page on your account profile.  I'll be opening up a page (and will link from here) in the Technical Discussions forum, with further details.

NPC ATTACKS
Some NPCs were performing attacks on player races that were ostensibly not supposed to be attacked.  They've been retrained, and will now avoid attacking players with whom they have a standing better than negative 50.

However, please be aware that faction units may or may not observe the Peace of the Camp rule if you are sharing a square with people they hate.  Whether they choose to attack depends on the personality traits of the faction itself.

Faction aggressiveness has been generally raised, especially around Calumnex.

SITTERS SPENDING PRESTIGE
A bug has been closed that allowed sitters to spend the prestige of the account they were sitting on avatar changes.

OTHER THINGS
There are still a few outstanding bugs that we're working on, plus we're trying to return a method of buying prestige natively into the Windows 10 app in conjunction with Microsoft.  We hope to have updates over the next few days or weeks.

Regards,

SC

Can you provide any details on any of those updates? Since they are very close to completion.

Failed attack against ivanrow's forces at [85|-22] in Middle Kingdom by Kodabear's forces from 02 Littlebears

Two opposing forces clash against each other.

Cavalry comes into its own when able to strike hostile forces at will, and from unexpected directions - and nowhere is this more feasible than on open plains. Lightly armoured spear units, however, prefer terrain where there's some cover available.

Fighting defensively on open plains, cavalry draws strength from the ability to form and reform their lines of engagement depending on the direction of battle, and it is here where cavalry excels.

Attackers:Unit:Quantity:Casualties:Survivors:
Commander: Commander 5Charioteers Charioteer1Damaged for 100, 0 health remains.
Troops:Charioteers Charioteers110


Your troops were crushed so comprehensively that there was no one left alive to bring back a combat report.

So the tournament report seem to always have info regarding defender data as well.
Even though the attacker cannot see this data normally.

Question here: Is this also true for the occupationlengthsecs field?

In the normal reports the defender sees that the attack was sent under occupation order but the

occupationlengthsecs field is always 0 in the defenders report. Has this been changed for the tournament reports?

And then there is this question:
For the tournament admin this is great! Regardless of which report he gets the report is always complete.
But looking at it from the perspective of the game: Using the tournament reports the participating players are now also able to see information they normally would not be able to see.

How the current Tournament API key isn't like what the people who wanted a limited API key. (I am only guessing they wont like it since i like the combat API key better then what the limited API key was going to be because of the better end stats) It still show all the troops and other identifying information. And it also will always show all the combat information even if the attacking player lost so much they didn't get a full report.

It's not supposed to, and this is why we're testing it - to get it right.

What URL endpoint are you putting the battle report tournament key into in order to retrieve a tournament battle report?

Cheers,

SC

I use https://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/External/CombatReport/ to be able to see the reports from the tournament API key (example of a report is here http://forum.illyriad.co.uk/31aug16-tournament-release-notes_topic6956_post93819.html#93819 )
