    So there's one group that any player can get third by doing just one boss... using you logic from a couple of posts ago, that not fair..

    The only difference in what you have proposed that that the groups would be

    4 (+ 1 non playing account)
    4 (+ 1 non playing account)
    3 (+ 2 non playing accounts)

    There is absolutely no difference here.. other than the event doesn't crap out out your because groups can't be computed...

    So this still is 4,4,3 (it's just a technical solution to avoid failure)


    I work in an investment bank.. I work on an FX trading platform. The platform allows traders to buy and sell currencies.. this is a highly regulated system... yet our application has "system accounts" ... e.g. There is one account that applies interest overnight... if you look at it in the database it will actually say +1,000 by System123 (First Name = System .. Last name = 123)... we have to follow a crazy amount of regulations and auditing procedures and yet the regulators don't fine us for having system accounts...

    Thank you for the information HR. I think the issue stellanan is debating is a moral one compared to a technical one. He's debating as a player seeing "fake" accounts as immoral business practice, whereas you and Olap are trying to explain the technical aspect of it. I can understand both views, but I fully understand that gree has to put in these accounts and therefore don't see an issue.

    Keep up the good work

    Equally so as no player as an unfair advantage
    If you had to join the event before you participate.
    Then it would be 3 groups with 3 players. Total 9 players in one event. The last two, they could not participate.
    This is one possible way?

    The system accounts are a failsafe mechanism that did exactly that when the matching scripts failed - they allowed players to participate in the event. They do not attack, they do not earn points, they do not disadvantage the players and they do not provide any systemic advantages to any one player. Most of the feedback we have received on that failure state has been positive, and we will be continuing to use this approach moving forward when it makes sense to do so.

    As to the continuation of this discussion, opening up new threads on a topic that was locked is frowned upon. Please avoid doing so in the future unless you have received explicit moderator permission to do so.
