-scry cooldown

Post by -XXX- » Fri Jul 09, 2021 7:48 pm

Description
==========
The -scry cooldown is off

Steps to reproduce
----------------------------
-scry, wait 10 RL mins, -scry again

Expected result
-----------------------
Being able to scry again

Actual result
-------------------
Scrying blocked by the cooldown


Notes
---------
Couldn't scry again after 4 RPR ticks - the cooldown stated that I had to wait for more than 5 more mins.


Sidenote: the -cd foci function does not give away any information regarding -scry or its cooldown whatsoever. It's very hard to track the cooldown without actually spamming -scry

I encountered the same problem the other day. I waited two - maybe three ticks after my last scry attempt to scry again and got a message that I couldn't scry, I had 8 minutes on my cool down timer.

As -XXX- said, we get no notice on the cool down timer unless we try to scry. It's rather annoying.

Bump.

Just scried, then summonned a familiar and unsummonned it. Once the familiar cooldown elapsed I tried scrying again and it said that I still had to wait for 5 more minutes = that means the -scry cooldown is much more than 10 minutes right now!

I've also been experiencing this on and off. From my experiences, it seems to be most frequent shortly after a server change.

It's all over the place in my experience. Sometimes you can -scry back to back, other times it's 30+ minutes between uses. I've not really figured out any rhyme or reason behind it, but it definitely wasn't an issue until the time change.

It's been about 30 RL minutes since I scried someone. I just tried to scry and got a message that said, "You have recently used scry. You can use this command in 1 minute and 8 seconds".

Something is definitely wrong.

Initial review is odd, things all look like they ought to work as intended. Added some better cooldown feedback behavior to scry in the meantime ('you have 8 minutes left...' 'you have 6 minutes left...') to make this easier to troubleshoot. I'm particularly interested in confirming the consistency of its misbehavior and any interactions with server transitions.

I'm having a fair bit of trouble with scry cooldowns at the moment. I did a scry at 15 past, then checked again at 22, and was informed I had 9 minutes and 23 seconds to go. I just spent 30 minutes on Cordor server, then when I came back to Surface, have 3 minutes and 17 seconds to go.

Status of this? Timelock implementation was updated, probably.
