MagicDKP [Deprecated for MOP]

25 - force sync

As of now the event of a bosskill and the loot are sync'd sometime after the actual kill. I suspect there is some time interval running, in which all loot is associated with the bosskill, and after this the event is broadcasted. Furthermore it seems that sync'ing is only done, if the original masterlooter is still there and in charge.
We do rotate people in and out quite often, so what if he has to leave and give masterlooter to someone else?
Could there be an additional button on the raid panel to force a sync?

    Actually we have two people running the addon and doing the ml job, but we both have to rotate in our classes, so we have like one or two exchanges. I dont know what time it takes to initiate a sync (guesstimate 10 mins), but in Ulduar one could do trash and make the swap right before the next boss, but we can't let the whole raid wait 10 mins in TotC.

    What does having no trash in TotC have to do with swapping the masterlooter? I do understand why you want that button to sync manually but it seems to me that your guild is overdoing it a little if you swap your ML that often.

    Anway, good idea. +3 from me.

    Sry but I just have to push this topic. I really love MagicDKP for its syncing because it makes my life as dkp officer so much easier. BUT with the new TotC raidinstance having NO trash, I really have a problem, because we have to swap the masterlooter at some point.

    The only thing I would need, is a button which forces a sync! Changing masterlooter once syncing was done worked like a charm for Ulduar.

    To me it seems Syncing is the outstanding feature of MagicDKP (and thats why I'm so interested in it)! My current problem is, that I have to wait an unknown time period for the sync to occur and only then change masterlooter. This and further testing would be easier, if I could force a sync (with a button or in any way else).

    Syncing definitely does need additional work. It's strongly recommended not to change master looter throughout the raid but I understand sometimes it's done. Currently MagicDKP does not listen or try to find out if the loot master changes so it's very likely that doesn't work as expected.
