2 companies reach goal in same quarter-year 8 years 5 months ago #4658

The problem is that I did start after the other player. I reached the goal more quickly, and I'm pretty sure I had a higher performance rating. I was winning in every way. Yet I still lost.

Joe, your last reply happens because you didn't checked games properly!

Admins, to check, need at least:
- ServerID:
- GameID;

Both are provided and displayed on the propper pages.

This topic already had good replies, with useful info from where admins can work! Because to players that don't even say or know the server where was the game, what you expect?

I believe that if 2 companies reach the goal in the same quarter, the first funded company will actually win it, because it's just higher in the list because of it. But maybe I'm mistaken there.

I do agree something needs to change there. And I know it's hard, if not impossible, to check daily, weekly or monthly even. But maybe there's a possibility to change it to last company started to win in this case. In my opinion they would deserve it more, even if technically they reached goals a few days later. If it's a given that the score gets checked quarterly, at least give the benefit of winning to the last started, so the fastest of the companies that reached their goal.

I agree with vGelder, sounds a lot more fair.

It might be a compromise, but i'd imagine it would be quite hard to make the checks more often. This may also result in less performance, since it might ask more of a server.

I remember seeing this in the code and there are two ways to fix this. A quick fix which may open the door toward some abuse and a more time consuming way(more code).

I have an idea how to fix this and prevent abuse, but time is limited. :) I'll talk to Franck maybe he can fix it if I point him in the right direction and/or help him out whenever I can.

We have fixed it a couple of months ago. Check out the latest goalsystem.cs from xshunter download section. File date is 06/12/2014. If the file is not there then contact me.
