Oricon (HM) 8-Man Progression Tracking

Click Here for the Oricon Hard Mode 8-Man Progression Tracking Tool

Introduction

With the release of two new Hard Mode raids (Dread Fortress and Dread Palace), SuckaFish Guild is again offering a tool for tracking 8-Man Progression. You can view our previous tracking for 8-Man Nightmare TFB and 8-Man Nightmare S&V

How the tracking tool works

With this wave of progression we face different challenges to tracking from past content and have made several changes to adapt to these new changes.

  1. You are allowed to kill bosses from either instance although However I recommend that guilds fully clear Fortress before starting on Palace (for maximum points and best competition).

  2. Bosses are worth a maximum of 500 points (1000 points for the final boss to encourage full clearing). The world first kill will be granted this maximum.

  3. After a boss has been killed a timer will start, this will decrease the value of the boss (halving the value every 3 days for Fortress or 7 days for Palace, this encourages guilds to clear Fortress First). While these points are rounded for viewing purposes the spreadsheet does have fractions of points that ensure no two kills score identically and these fractions can add up to an extra point or two in the totals section.

  4. Unlike last progression you get no bonus points for getting a top 3 kill on a boss, only recognition.

Verifying boss kills

In order to fully verify a kill and receive a 100% of the points and proper recognition for it you will need to provide a screenshot that contains two key elements (UTC Clock and HM Achievement).

How to take the screenshot with the UTC time-stamp window:

  1. Ensure the game client is in Fullscreen (Windowed) mode. This can be set in the Preferences/Graphics menu
  2. Click the UTC Clock link here and set the browser window to a size of your preference.
  3. Drag UTC time-stamp window over the SWTOR Client window and position it appropriately.
  4. On your keyboard, hit CTRL+Print Screen to capture your entire Desktop to your clipboard.
  5. In MS Paint, paste the contents of the clipboard (the captured image). Save the image.
  6. Alternatively, you can use screen capturing software like SnagIt or Snipping Tool. Snipping Tool is included in Windows 7.

Ensure the following items are clearly visible:

  1. The Hard Mode Achievement you receive for killing a particular boss.
  2. A UTC time-stamp which can be acquired from the UTC clock here: UTC Clock
  3. The difficulty of the instance which can be proved by capturing the achievement you receive for defeating a particular boss. Alternatively, difficulty can be verified by right clicking your character's portrait.
  4. Here is an example of a screenshot from Drop it like it's Hoth's World First NiM TFB kill of Dread Guards. Please do your best to ensure all verification screenshots follow that example.

Penalties for not providing the required information:

  1. You need a screenshot of the achievement or kill to get placed on the spreadsheet. No screenshot, no recognition.
  2. A UTC time-stamp is required to get any points for that particular boss.
  3. No calculating times based from delayed screenshots. If you take a late screenshot of the Achievement + UTC clock, your kill will be verified but the time recorded will be what's shown by the UTC Clock in the screenshot, not what time the Achievement says.
  4. To claim a world first kill you must have a fully verified screenshot.

Posting your kills

Include the following items in your post:

  1. Guild Name
  2. Guild Website (If you have one)
  3. Server
  4. Region
  5. A link to the verification screenshot for each boss you have defeated.

Final Words

The main purpose of tracking HM progression is to help the community grow, I don't believe guilds will be taking it as serious as NiM progression, so if you trash talk bare this in mind and don't do it in this thread.
Everything may not have been thought of in making the tracking tool so if a new issue arises we will try and resolve it as fairly as possible but we hold the rights to any final decisions.

Good luck and have fun.

All times in screenshots are in US EST, sorry about the lack of UTC. I have converted the times into UTC but other than a UTC after the fact screenshot of the achievements, I cannot supply that because I did not do it at the time of the kills/screenshots. I will apply the UTC stamps to our Palace kills today. Thank you for your work tracking!

Don't convert the time, retake the screenshots of your achievements with a utc clock to recieve the time showed then as your time.

Good luck in Palace.

So you skipped a boss, then came back after doing the easy ones in the other op?
