Class of engineers glitch?

Recommended Posts

I have built a vehicle for the current KDL event and submitted it during the appropriate time. On the main Class of Engineers screen it has an image of my vehicle and says "Your blueprint participates in the voting. Good Luck!" However, I have spent more than 45 minutes cycling through the random entires and do not see mine. I have had friends look for it and they cannot find it to vote on it either. Is there a glitch, or did my submission get declined for some reason and I just don't know it?

Probably not a glitch just really crappy odds of you seeing your own build out of the huge volume of builds put up for voting.  

It seems that the 3 random builds you see are independent trials each time you refresh to see a new group of three. This means that the probability of you seeing your build per click of the refresh is the same for every click... 

I know, it sucks. I suggested in another thread that each build you see should have three buttons 'Vote', 'Nope', 'Report'.  This will help eliminate the base pool of builds you see based on your selection.

I thought of that, but when I see the same vehicles 5 times as I cycle through, and all of them start to look like I've seen them before, it makes me wonder. I like your idea, but man, just a simple name search function would solve some of the issue as well. I could just tell a friend the name of my ride and they could bring it upin 5 seconds.

This. They should also be removed from populating once they have recieved a vote for or against. And before this, there should be a filter of some kind.

1. It needs to have a cabin to be test ran

2. It's needs to be clear if it's expected to be battle ready. The courier makes sense to not require that as they would just hire armed escorts or run away if confronted. Likewise, this would require some sort of movement parts. But it needs to be made clear either way.

Oh and as a bit of helpful advice, you are not required to save it in your blueprints or own the parts used to build it after it has been submitted. But you will be unable to make changes by doing this.

I guess you can't see and vote for your own build maybe?

Either way, this run has (at least on PC) so much endless trash submitted I would be very surprised if the winner had a quarter of the votes the last winner had (which was 326/271/230 for the top three)

Yeah I'm not spending an hour voting just to see the same trash/copycat builds over and over. It's a shame. I'd actually like to see and vote for the cool ones.

I was able to see and vote for my entry for the fighter event, so unless they changed it i don't think thats the issue. As I cycle through page after page, I see the same junk 5 and six times, nothing new I havn't seen, yet not mine. I just feel like something is off, but what do I know. Thats why I'm asking you experts!

I think you just found some luck there. I search the exhibition for leviathan and regular builds just for inspiration and I never see them in the contest. FHT and SHP, or whatever it was, were both like that.

This post here was my mostly fleshed out suggestion:

To get the best of all worlds I suggest that there'd be three buttons on each build:

  1. "Report" (for not following the rules of the contest) this flags the build for moderation and adds the build to your 'seen' list.  If the moderator agrees the build doesn't follow the rules then it's removed out of the build pool for voting so that others don't see it as well.
  2. "Pass" (the 'I've seen it and I'm not voting for it' button). This button adds the build to your 'seen' list and won't show up again in the further random selections of builds to vote on.
  3. "Vote" (vote for the build).  Now I'm a fan of the idea of moving voted for builds to an intermediary tab between 'vote' and the 'results' section of 'Clash of Engineers'.  But like the others the voted for list doesn't show up on your random build pull.

It's not quite a fully baked idea, but has potential right?

First event.  I probably spent a good few hours searching my build and never found it.  The last two I saw my builds lots.  Luck of the Irish is what y'all need.
