password spading effort; includes a laundry list of incorrect passwords and the one single correct one --billybobfred (talk) 01:50, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

clan-wide password limit

  • all password attempts appear in the clan activity log (the passwords themselves do not); all my clannies lost the ability to make guesses after 103 bad passwords and 1 good one. anyone else with data? --billybobfred (talk) 03:00, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
    • I lost my ability after my second bad guess, other clannies had the ability. Nevermind, guess I just didn't wait long enough.--Fluxxdog (talk) 14:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

fifty-five

  • could someone explain how the purple passwords overlap? i assumed that each pair overlapped by two characters. this seems borne out by the forum thread. however, since each password would then add three more characters to the original five, this would imply an overall lenght of 53 or 56. i don't understand. --Evilkolbot (talk) 11:31, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
    • Ok, lets see if I can break it down for you :) Every player gets a 5 char purple string that's part of the 55 char password. The overlaps are arbitrary, in the sense that it can overlap 1, 2, 3, or 4 chars. For example, my index is 42-46 for this ascension, and one of my clannies had an index of 41-45. So our purple strings were almost the same, save for 2 characters. Did that help? ~Erich t/c 12:49, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
      • many thanks for the clarification. so there are 51 possible positions. (if duplication can't happen then unless it's pick 55 from 62 that's a smart algorithm.) now I understand how knowing your relative position helps. a group of 11 accounts could get it relatively quickly, then. --Evilkolbot (talk) 21:42, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
        • if i add my (ahem) user number to my ascension count, i get 43351, and 51 is my purple password offset. hmm. not useful. --Evilkolbot (talk) 21:55, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Yellow Password Order

It seems that the order for the yellow password is always: adjective noun noun noun. That reduces the possible permutations from 24 to 6. Credit for the observation goes to the spreadsheet Billybobfred linked above, I'm just copying it here so it'll hopefully get some more exposure, and help people find other rules that narrow the possible passwords even more. --Xande (talk) 10:25, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Red List Incomplete

I had been wondering why on earth I couldn't, with five of the 11 letters, get the right password for the red drink from the list linked to. After getting a sixth letter, I guessed PATCHWORKED and unlocked the drink. The list does not have this particular word, so the description is somewhat faulty.-Foggy (talk) 18:25, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
