Is the value for "pop" broken this week? It seems to be wildly incorrect on all platform, e.g. from PC:
Nevermind, I see the initial thread post has been updated:
In general, I'm not sure what the benefit of changing this even is. It's a ratio based on one type of item sold as opposed to the entire population of items sold. We would have calculated this ourselves if we wanted with the old system, and with this new system in place it feels more like we're losing information about what's actually going on in ways of Riven trading, which (from what I understood) this whole project was supposed to help alleviate.
If this is the route it's going to take, could the ratios at least be decimals? Having them as whole numbers isn't very informative since well over a majority of the items (483 out of 576) are listed with a pop of 1, which doesn't really tell you much beyond "these traded less frequently" yet with what actual scale is unknown. For instance, a non-rolled Fluctus has a pop of 1 this week. Last week, with the old system, a non-rolled Fluctus had a pop of 0.2914%, which lets you estimate an amount of 128 total traded. With this new system, if we assume a similar amount was traded (let's say 90 for this sake), a pop of 1 with 90 actually traded would be the same pop as some other item with 2 actually traded.
