  • Wynchell doesn't seem to count games

    Noticed this with a couple Liquid-Empire games and one other, can't remember the teams involved. The games aren't recorded as being watched until I download a replay and open it, not sure if that's intended.

    I got view count from the live games of TL vs Empire.

      I watched a Starladder game today and the Grillhound didn't count it either...maybe something's up with my account? I joined toward the end of the game but as far as I know it should count as a view regardless of time joined.

        Yeah, not sure why this is still a problem. It has the "eye" icon on all of the games yet I don't have all of the games counted...
        This goes for both the Star Series and the Premier league tournaments.

          Now for Starladder games the ones I watched yesterday showed up as watched and today they don't despite the games being counted. Something's definitely off with the tracking system here.

            I fooled around with this a little bit and I think I know why some games I watched as replays didn't register properly. As I said in the support forum, I have a problem that causes the game to crash quite a bit, so whenever I'd attempt to watch a replay and get a crash at some point, a view would count (displayed on the courier) but the eye icon to indicate that it had been watched (under the watch tab) wouldn't come up. I started downloading the replays in groups of 2 or 3 and watching the beginning, which as a whole process was a short enough window of time to avoid a crash. After exiting the game and coming back, the eye icon was there, so that last view was counted and everything was back to normal.

            However, this means that while I tried to figure out what was going on, I was able to get extra views because I was getting credit for watching any replay that hadn't technically been viewed; in other words, any replay I had watched in which the game crashed. Since the game crashes so often, this happened quite a few times. This also worked for any game I watched live as well. I don't know the exact numbers, but I think TPL's had about 25 games and Starladder about 30, but my Wynchell shows 30 views and my Grillhound shows 40. There are still people with 100 view count couriers even though this was supposed to be fixed, so I'm assuming one way to reproduce this would be to just close Dota 2 from the Task Manager during the game and repeat.

            A mod can feel free to change the title of this thread since it's now essentially about something that can be abused, and I figure someone who can do something about this may want to know about the issue.

              Wtf 285.png

              Watched a few replays today and this is what happened....

              Not sure how it jumped from 24 to 285... I did not do the glitch I patched and continued to watch replays (the remaining 2 I was missing)

              it's continuously going up now...it's at 300 and I'm just sitting in game.

                This just happened to me, watched a replay and went from 17 to 148, and now just sitting in the backpack tab watching, the courier gets another view about every 5 seconds for no reason, up to almost 300 now.

                  The same thing is happening to my Wynchell. View count just keeps going up. Not sure why this issue is so hard to correct.

                  Edit: Just thought I'd provide more information based on a few tests. Going back and forth between your backpack and the TPL replays increases your Wynchell count each time (or so it seems based on limited tests). The count increase for this action is small (usually one count increase). Upon the completion of downloading a replay and going to your backpack increases the count by significantly more (10-15).

                    I trade Grillhound for a 3 views Wynchell, and it's still 3 views since. My Wynchell doesn't record anything, replays or live games.
                    God, this is so bad

                            Something's off with the counter for sure, the Grillhound works much better. I've watched the two Liquid-3D games today and the first worked fine. Lost my connection for a minute in the second game and the view doesn't show up despite the "watched" icon being next to the game.

                            I've given it a couple hours to update, games 2 and 3 of that series don't show. I have 25 games viewed on the counter and 27 with the "watched" icon.

                              Yeah, I love to watch Starladder series, but I love the Wynchell also, so I trade my 0 view Grillhound for a 3 views Wynchell, exspecting it will have full effect when I finish the Starladder series.

                              3 views is ok, didn't want to trade the bugged one either. But guess i did
                              Hope Valve will fix this at the end of the week. This courier costs money, and didn't know I have to deal with this frustration this way.
