Why is My Collection not Phenomenal?

Postby Yalina » February 27th, 2013, 6:49 pm

This isn't a bug, but a question. It's also very petty, and I freely admit it. But I'm curious.

After some dedicated effort on my part this past month, I've climbed my way to #4 on my realm for total pets collected. The top spot is within reach, and I have a plan to achieve it. Once you move to PetScore, I'm sure I'll drop a bit, but for now I'm enjoying it.

I've been comparing my collection against a guildie, Maizing, as I rose through the ranks. When I look at her collection, it says "486 of 509 unique pets — A PHENOMENAL collection!" Yet when I go to my own collection, I get "495 of 523 unique pets — An AMAZING collection!"

I have more than her. Why is my collection only amazing and not phenomenal? :)

The cutoff seems to be based on how many pets you have left to collect. She's at 23 left and you're at 28 left so maybe the cutoff is 25? (Speculating here, not entirely sure)

Maybe the amount of pets you exclude effect it too? (Not sure though)

Bingo.

This is just an arbitrary commentary that was put into the code (by me) way back in the day. But perhaps we need to rethink it and bind it to pet score...

Personally, I liked having my collection be an "amazing" one... but I suppose that may just be me.

So the fact that I still harbor the delusions of getting my hands on a Vanilla Collector's Edition and a Mini Tyrael is the reason I'm still at amazing, while those that have accepted their inability to acquire specific pets are phenomenal? As they're probably at the healthier mental state, that makes sense. :)

Thanks for the clarification!

And Maizing, you can be amazing again. Pretend you're going to someday get all those Korea only pets. :)
