[ok] Raising the CEO Pay Doesn't Always Work
« on: April 07, 2015, 04:26:26 PM »
As you may know, I enjoy raising the pay of the CEO on a regular basis in each of the game worlds that I participate in. I have experienced the following in both GW3 and GW4 in the past day or two when trying to increase the pay of the CEO.

Here's what happens:
1. Type a random number or five into the CEO's pay box and let the javascript update the CEO's pay to the highest threshold.
2. Click Save at the bottom of the page
3. Receive acknowledgement that settings were saved, but then gasp in disbelief that the CEO's pay did not go up by 1000 as expected.
4. Repeat Steps 1-3
5. Repeat Step 4
6. Repeat Step 5, then maybe 4 again for good measure.
7. Manually adjust the CEO's salary to 1000 higher instead of letting the limit enforcer do it.
8. Click save at the bottom of the page
9. ....
10. Profit, the CEO's pay has been improved.
11. File an obnoxious step by step bug report
12. ....
13. Profit

Expected (and previously functional) result step sequence: Step 1, 8, 9, 10.

I suspect this problem was an unintended consequence of fixing other CEO getting a raise bugs as closed out in this other thread.

It does work if you set to default then raise to max.

I just tested again and it's still happening.

GW3 -

1. Lowered CEO's salary to 66000, clicked save (CEO salary lowered success)
2. Typed a few random numbers into the CEO pay field, causing it to auto correct back to 67000, clicked save (settings were saved, no raise)
3. Changed the 66000 value to 67000, clicked save (yay, CEO paid well)

Not so ninja edit - doing this in Chrome
Painfully not ninja edit - tested in IE11, same result
