The following is an update to the way the MRP system handles data for NPE (Near Parsable Events). Over the last few weeks I have been checking data from NPE events, these are events where the combat log would not return correct parse data for DPS from different players across the map. E.G. Azure Nebula, players are so far apart that the combat log will only record data from the player making the log. Cryptic appears to have made a change to the amount of data being sent to the combat log parser, anyone over 30Km away is now no longer recorded at all. So this means that whilst we always used to get other data such as threat, healing etc, we are getting no data or inaccurate data. Clearly, this gives the person parsing a very large advantage and all other players a massive disadvantage.
So all NPEs are now going to be called once again NON Parsable Events. The data from the combat log will be used for two data sets, the player names and the deaths recorded, everything else is substituted for a standardised set of results.
Instead, the MRP Calc sheet will insert a standard set of values for space and ground events. These values are as follows:
DATA SPACE GROUND
DPS 200,000 1,000
Total Dmg 20,000,000 200,000
Max Hit 200,000 5,000
DMG In 500,000 5,000
Threat 20% 20%
Heal Out 200,000 5,000
This will ensure that everyone starts on a level playing field.
Differences you see in the scores will be based on the following:
Weekly Endeavour Rank
SRS Merit Packs SRS Merit Consoles
Elite Fleet membership Build Matching
The fleet of the week
The other weekly bonuses
Hazard Team bonus Daily Bonus BUILD MATCHING
The bonus for build matching has been doubled from 50,000 MRP to 100,000 MRP
Build matching is when you have identified your build in the "members comments" field in the ROSTER within the game. If you're not sure where to add it just ask, however here is a screenshot of where you put it:
The build choices available for SRS are as follows, and these must be entered exactly as you see here (not case sensitive), any deviation of the name will be ignored by the spreadsheet and I have no power to correct it if you've done it wrong.
Name of build Abbreviation to enter in the comments field
Exotic Particle build EPG
Fire at will FAW
Cannon Scatter Volley CSV
Cannon Rapid Fire CRF
Torpedo builds TORP
Beam Overload BO
Mixed build type MIX
Tanking and support SUPPORT
Torp boat with science SCITORP
Do not add anything else to this field or it will be automatically ignored, e.g. don't put "CSV God Mode YAY" or anything like that, only the abbreviation.
A few notes: Mixed builds must contain the following to qualify:
at least 1 torpedo
at least 1 beam bank or array or Omni
at least 1 cannon or turret
They must also have a firing mode for each
TS (torpedo spread) or HY (High Yield), BO or FAW, CRF or CSV
DRAIN builds must have a minimum of 500 drain showing in stats.
These things will be checked if the event is a parsed event for the SRS DPS league What happens if I've changed my build from the last time it was uploaded to the spreadsheets?
In this case, you won't get the build matching bonus to MRP but it will be logged correctly for the DPS leagues, I and Fer always check on parsed events that each person's build matches what they have recorded in the comments section, either by looking at the combat parser analysis or by asking.
