    Through many rerolling and observing the IDs of registered PAD accounts, I have found a pattern which directly relates to the date you registered your PAD account.

    We pretty much all know that the third digit of your ID determines which group you're in (Ex. 308,208,322 is in D group since the third digit is either 3 or 8). But what does this tell you? You can't have a bunch of A registered in the same time, so the third digit must be evenly given.

    You're probably confused by now, but here's what I have called the "Age-Hybrid Identification Code." Notice how I bolded some of the letters. The bolded ones turns out as: AGEHBDIFC. And again you will notice something... That these nine letters are the first nine letters of the English alphabet!

    This is what you should do to find out: Your ID is ABC,DEF,GHI, and you need to change it to AGEHBDIFC to see about when you created your account. And by subtracting the result by 323795846 and then add 1, you will see you are the xth person to register PAD. For example, mine is 308,208,322, which translates to 330202288, subtract by 323795846 and add one gives 6406443. This means I am the 6406443th PAD player on the NA server and there are 6406442 people before me.

    This is a notation that I used while rerolling. As many Chinese will do, I look for "lucky numbers." Chinese consider 8 and 6 are lucky, while 4 is unlucky. So as you might find, non of my accounts contains 4s, and most contain many 8s or 6s.

    If you make A the first digit of your ID, and B the second, C the third, until I the ninth digit, you will find about when did you create your account.

    With this method, I found Daike Yamamoto (YamaP)'s ID: 396,534,278. This is the first ID in the whole NA server, and you couldn't find anyone before that. There's no 395,534,278, there's no 394,534,278. But there's 397,534,278, and that is the person who played PAD absolutely first (excluding YamaP). And this explains two people here on the forums who got 600 day log-in bonuses.

    Let's start with Daike Yamamoto's ID: 396,534,278. (323795846)
    The next one will be 397,534,278. (323795847)
    Then it will be 398,534,278. (323795848)
    And then 399,534,278. (323795849)
    However, it doesn't turn to 400,534,278. It turns back to 390,535,278. (323795850)
    And when it reaches 399,539,278, (323795899) the next one will be 390,530,279. (323795900)
    And it keeps going, when it is 399,539,279, (323795999) we change the D-digit, making it 390,630,270. (323796000)
    And it keeps going, when it is 399,939,279, (323799999) we change the B-digit, but in this case, it will change the H-digit also, making it 300,030,280. (323800000)
    And it keeps going, when it is 399,939,299, (323999999) we change the E-digit, making it 300,040,200. (323796000). However, the eight digit became 0, why? Because there's a general rule: changing any digit from 9 to 0 will change the digit in front of it (in AGEHBDIFC order).

    Here is where most of us on the forums' ID comes along: 300,040,200 to 399,999,299. I call it the "324 to 329 Age" because the IDs translates to 324xxxxxx to 329xxxxxx. If you're first, seventh, and fifth digit of you're ID is small, this means that you started the game quite early. Especially those with 323 when they translates, they probably have played everyday and achieved the day 600 bonus.

    Now, we have gone over from PAD's release to February 16, 2014, at 10:53 AM, where the most awesome ID is created... 300,000,300. I missed that ID by only six, getting a 306,000,300 instead.

    So if you are interested, please leave your ID and date registered for a more detailed data in this Google Spreadsheet: http://goo.gl/A2d888. Thank you for being with me for such a long time.

    Wouldn't it be more logic to think gungho keeps track of the simultaneous connections in every group and tries to balance the server loads by asigning new IDs to the group with a lesser load?

    At least that's what I would do. That keeps the traffic at bay and server costs as well.

    I would have to read that a few times to catch on to what your saying. But based on my id when was I created then?

    Yes. Since your E digit is 3, then it is correct that you have log in 600 days.

    Really random way they did that....Why would you randomize the ordering of the digits?

    But it does make some sense. I'm 321135284 (323821451), which is where he says people at the 600 day mark should be (I got that bonus sometime last week). This makes me the 25605th account on the NA server, which, well, I started a little late on the 2nd day, so that's not too unreasonable.

    What doesn't make sense is that there are apparently 2.5 million accounts between me and YamaP.
    (323821451-323795846 = 2,660,562) - these aren't real people, for sure, because, there weren't even 1 million downloads until WAY later. What gives there?
    (ed: Such bad math...)

    Everything runs on Amazon AWS anyway, so the load balancing is already taken care of pretty well. Remember that groups don't really matter that much w.r.t. load balancing because you still need to handle peak load during godfests - when *everybody* logs in at the same time to pull the REM.

    Pretty awesome decoding, OP! I think the obfuscation that they're doing for game IDs makes sense in some ways - it's just another layer of abstraction that hides this stuff from the user, but since there's no information loss when going from one ID format to another, it makes coding for it pretty straightforward.

    My question is really just a matter of why do they bother hiding it from the user. I want to lord my 5-digit slashdot UID over all the noobs, not have to teach them how to decode their UID and THEN lord it over them :p

    ^rofl right!

    Okay so if I understand this correctly my ID 303,152,225 you take the 1st digit (3) then then the 7th digit that would be (2) and then I take the 5th digit (5) and combine them to get a number 325, I am I understanding this correctly?

    Your ID is ABCDEFGHI (one letter for each digit). You need to unscramble it to AGEHBDIFC.

    AGEHBDIFC will be ordered according to when you created your account. OP really should've first explained how to unscramble your ID and then his findings in unscrambled format.

    Yes, absolutely. 325 is quite early.

    They're basically people who haven't done the tutorial with a Tyrra leader.
