*Encounters bug on first day back*


On the plus side Brett's been pretty responsive the last couple of months so fingers crossed it gets fixed quick!

Thanks god... Any news for the next hardware sales update?

Also, I've seen that you increased minecraft wii u in the USA, so that's an adjustment, ioi allowed you to make an adjustment? Or do you have the right to do it for specific games ( those that were released after you taking charge of software sales tracking ) ?

@HW - Nope. Brett's been quiet for a week or so.

@Adjustments: How it works is I give him a detailed list of adjustments I want made and then, eventually, he gets around to making them to the database directly.

In order to make the adjustments myself I'd have to go into the site code, but as I'm not a website developer and have almost zero knowledge of coding neither of us are really keen on me doing that as I could cause untold damage to the site by accident xD

So for the time being it has to be done like that, which is why it's only really done to newer releases/high charting games (I don't seem much point giving him requests for older titles, even tho I have hundreds of adjustments I want made, because it would take him forever to get around to doing them. I figure giving him bite sized adjustments to make means they actually get done).

< Kerotan posted something on Machina's wall:

I'm after getting banned for another week for telling a mod I keep the mods relevant. It was in a pm. And while I was being a smart Alec it's actually true. People who get banned like me keep the mods in a job.

Regardless, the comment was absolutely harmless and it's a joke I can be banned for a week over that. I can't ever see myself paying for the gold supporter program if the status quo remains. The system just doesn't feel right.

Anyway, they'll probably come up with another excuse to ban me for a third consecutive week so just want to say, good job with the numbers, enjoy your holiday and I'm looking forward to seeing the next few weeks numbers as the big games release!

I understand. Welcome back. Try to avoid getting into hot water tho; I feel the site is better with you around, so it's a shame wen you get banned for disagreements over petty things.

Aye. thanks :)

Am going away on holiday tomo, but will still work on the charts and stuff, just not for as many hours as usual.

< Machina updated his status:

Adjustments made in the last two weeks (I forgot to post them on my wall at the time):

- Doom (all platforms) increased in Europe

- Minecraft (all platforms, including WiiU's launch) increased in US

- Overwatch (all platforms) reduced in all regions

- Mirror's Edge Catalyst (all platforms) increased in US

Great job!

Xbox Empire - 2 New Gears 4 bundles announced | Lost Odyssey finally comes to BC | Gears Of War 4 Prologue (20 Minutes, New Gameplay) | Minecraft XB1 S bundle announced | Gears of War 4 goes Gold, Lau

in Microsoft Discussion 18 hours ago

@Lost Odyssey - I looked it up after seeing the thread headline and it's currently selling just below 100 units a week. Will be interesting to see what kind of sales boost Lost Odyssey gets from being added to BC. Black Ops got a really big boost when it was added. Lost Odyssey being disc-only BC atm should definitely see a good boost, but I wonder how many of those will be new copies....
