Turning Sharded Lemons Into Sharded Lemonade

Edit:  This problem is now fixed.  Post is going to stay in case it happens again, plus picks were logged below in case there is a pattern to be found.

So this post is as of about 9:30am Pacific on August 13th.  If you’re trying Ring Domination for this higher tiers (I’m told SV and up), it’s not working – you go to make a pick and the thing times out.  Well, that’s frustrating….BUT, I have found there is something you can do.  It appears it is only timing out on incorrect picks, not correct picks.  So, the trick here is to make a shard map – I’ve made one below you can use.  When you go to make a pick, mark where on the map you tried.  If/when it fails, scratch that one off – you know that’s not the shard.  You can keep going this way with knowledge until the bug is fixed.  It’s not overly efficient, but I’m fairly certain CatDaddy is going to extend the event based on this bug, so it at least gives you SOME kind of progress you can make in the meanwhile.  I also think it would be interesting to log the order the shards come out in.  Is it different for every person or is it specific to the mapped card?  I would suspect the former, and not the latter, but I’m going to start piece tracking just in case.  Comment and let me know if you have information on this, either confirming or denying.

Consecutive question marks above means those two were pulled in that order, but I can’t decipher which was first or second.

So….anyone else have any data?  Are there patterns to be formed or any information to be gained from this?  What do you think?
