Captain or leader?[edit]

Is the banner-wearing illager called the patrol captain or the patrol leader? Mojang seems to be alternating terminology. – Nixinova Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png 21:56, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Well, I never heard of a "patrol captain" in real life. That just seems awkward, like "patrol chief". It's always "patrol leader". I think we should pick one and be consistent. ~ Amatulic (talk) 00:22, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Bad open "levels"[edit]

If the Bad Open has 1-3 levels as stated in the article, what do the levels do? Trigger different size raids? Do the levels stack, if you happen to kill another patrol leader before a previous effect wears off? ~ Amatulic (talk) 23:54, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Each bad omen level adds to waves to the raid. So Bad Omen V will have 5×2 waves of illagers attacking the village. I'm not sure about the stacking. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 00:13, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I added a generic sentence to that effect just now. ~ Amatulic (talk) 01:51, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Section Illager patrol#Java Edition 2 outdated[edit]

Now, according to the decompiled code, the behavior on java now is pretty much the behavior on bedrock. I hope another editor or director can take a look and confirm before this change.

Moreover, it appears in code that illager patrols won't spawn on superflats. liach (talk) 10:24, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Maybe, that in some superflat world. i play on bedrock and illager patrol still spawn in flat world.
One of correct biome which illager patrol can spawn is plains which is default biome in classic flat.(the only available superflat preset in bedrock) ImakerB (talk) 11:28, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
I am talking about Java Edition. The chunk generator for superflat in Java does not include a patrol spawner while the regular chunk generator does. liach (talk) 01:32, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
I am playing on Java Edition and I can confirm the 200 blocks away from village condition doesn't seem to exist anymore : I just saw a patrol spawn in front of me while the nearest village is more than 1000 blocks away 88.190.74.76 13:28, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
How are you verifying this? The /locate command doesn't always identify the nearest structure. See https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-140299 resolved as duplicate and being tracked in https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-138887 ~ Amatulic (talk) 17:49, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

What's the frequency? can it be stopped??" (REM song)[edit]

I could swear I'd read somewhere that (Illager) Patrols are roughly once an hour /3 MC Days. How long - or is it just an average - might it be before another Illager Patrol arrives? (and might it overlap-ever with a Hero of the Village, Effect? [this all assumes just the same and /or Single, Player, for simplicity]) Yilante 4 /24 /19 11:44 a.m. 76.209.248.192 18:44, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Any event that is determined by probability of occurrence won't happen at regular intervals, but at random intervals.
The article is pretty clear about how it works in Bedrock Edition: "Illager patrols spawn naturally after five in-game days, then after a delay between 5–6 minutes an attempt will be made to spawn an illager patrol (20% chance of success), repeating the delay and spawn attempts." That means you can expect 1 out of 5 spawn attempts to be successful, which averages out to one patrol every 25-30 minutes but the interval between patrols can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as days if many attempts fail in a row.
The article is less clear on how it works in Java Edition. ~ Amatulic (talk) 20:27, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
As I read through Java decompiled code, it appears it works the same in JE as the described behavior of BE here, except that patrols won't spawn on superflats. liach (talk) 00:26, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Move to "patrol"?[edit]

Patrols now only have pillagers, and the minecraft.net posts now just call them "patrols".[1] The main 1.14 changelog[2] is also inconsistent of their naming, calling them "patrols" (once), "illager patrols" (twice), and "pillager patrols" (once). – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 05:06, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Support. Just move it. No discussion needed here. We shouldn't be naming articles with unnecessary disambiguation in the title when there is no ambiguity. There is no need to disambiguate the type of patrol, because there is only one type. (And I'd say the same is true for "pillager outpost"; what other kind is there?) ~ Amatulic (talk) 14:29, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Re: pillager outpost - I'd say keep that one. They've been pretty consistently called that by Mojang, and the in-game structure is called pillager_outpost. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 22:29, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
 Support They are called pillager patrols in Bedrock Edition. By moving, we would not show a bias towards any particular edition. The BlobsPaper.png 04:37, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
 Support No extra comments needed, it just makes sense. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 16:22, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
 Support for above reasons. –Sonicwave talk 19:06, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
 Support -BDJP (t|c) 02:26, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Moved the page (from "Illager patrol"). –Sonicwave talk 20:17, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
