  1. Hey. As part of an exercise for learning some basic webdev stuff I'm very slowly creating a dpg tracking site using dpg/frag data for every player on NA via the WoT api. I have some other ideas that I'd like to implement but for now I have a simple top 50 list for (almost?) every tank based on dpg. I've only included entries with more than 150 battles. The number itself is arbitrary but it's more statistically significant than a lower number (duh) while still keeping it somewhat accessible. You can download the website in its current state here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/fdsuu792r9f67p3/website.zip index.html is the home page. Site is now live at www.dpgwhores.com I'd like feedback on the website design and methodology. So far it's only been tested on the latest version of Chrome so it might be horribly broken on other browsers. I'd rather not have a discussion about the best way to measure skill; I've chosen to only track hard stats, so it is what it is. Cheers~
  2. Has WG added any new premium arties recently (T6-8)?

      Bandkanon_1 - in service 1967-2033 (and sufficiently modern in design unlike STB-I) and therefore not fitting the WoT timeline at all.

      It would fit in theory, though. Timeline isnt really a problem; technically the upcoming new tier 9/10 Chinese LT is from 2000s (!) as China didnt get L7 guns until 2000s. WG seems to be slowy slipping away the requirements. Heck, there are already smoothbore guns in the game (Chieftain/T95, aswell as some of Chinese LT guns; heck Kranvagn's 15cm smoothbore was likely tested during supertest judging from very first leaked screenshot and from some artworks).

      While it indeed had 14 clip magazine IRL, keep on mind most in-game autoloaders actually has much smaller clips than IRL: for example, 50B had 12 round clip IIRC, so introducing it with like 5 x 900 or 6 x 750 dmg clips could be possible if would come to game.

      Ofc autoloading arty is probably strong contender for most shitty mechanic in the game, and obviously i am heavily against introducing another one. Also didnt it get withdrawn from service at 2003?

      I mean technically the Type 74 is still in service with the japanese military, IIRC. (I.E the production version of the STB-1)

    Classic rap

    Personally, I find quite a bit of pre-90s stuff to be unlistenable (Rakim/Eric B, Public Enemy, Run-DMC, etc). Their flow/delivery and the beats didn't age well at all IMO. I didn't grow up listening to this stuff so it doesn't hold any nostalgia for me to even want to listen to it more than once out of respect for their influence.
  4. Hey, I got your report; thanks. Sorry about your account, it should show up within a week. The Wargaming API sometimes reports accounts as unavailable so my site still hasn't picked up a couple thousand accounts or so. Hopefully, the next time my update script goes through the EU accounts, your account will get picked up. I might look into adding a feature where you can automatically add your account if it's not available.
  5. EU section is up! http://www.dpgwhores.com/?server=eu Sorry it took so long... Let me know if you find any problems.
  6. Ok new tanks will appear after the next update.
  7. Uggh. They deprecated the API I was using to update my tank list. I'll fix this later tonight.
  8. So on NA there's about ~100-150k active accounts (my player database is a bit outdated but this will be fixed soon), which only takes 2-3 hours to update; the number of players in my NA database with more than ~250 battles is close to 1 million which I was updating everyday previously (which took about 13 hours). Using RN's figures for active accounts in EU (150k NA + 750k EU ~ 900k), I should be able to update EU and NA everyday. It'll probably be 2-4 weeks away as I'm only putting in about 1-2 hours a week on this currently.

    How to WoT on Ubuntu?

    Thanks. I was just looking for a ballpark figure. If you're getting that while streaming, then it's more than fine (I'm running slightly worse hardware). Assuming of course your graphics settings and whatnot aren't gutter level.

    So how are you all?

    Hope you feel better soon Also, I got kicked out of Chai.

    So how are you all?

    Why is your deadlift not higher than your squat?

    How to WoT on Ubuntu?

    Hmm, I'm running arch too. What's the performance like (relative to your hardware)?
  13. Player names should automatically update for reals this time, starting the day after tomorrow.
  14. You'll come crawling back. Also http://www.dpgwhores.com/tanks/19217/ Are you ogHaKo @CarbonWard? New tanks up, and new tanks sHould be automatically added from now on.
  15. Yeah but it'll have to wait till after this round of improvements.
  16. Ok I'm slowly working on stuff again. New tanks should turn up in 2-3 days. New players a bit after that.
  17. No not yet. That's a great idea, I can update EU in a couple hours if it's only 750k active players.
  18. My actual server is more than sufficient. The bottleneck is the number of unique IP addresses I have to run my proxies to query the WoT API. The WoT API only gives you a limited number of requests per second from each unique IP address. I haven't really found a cheap way to have loads of different IP addresses to run proxies.
  19. Maybe. See my reply to RichardNixon below. I'll look into it over the weekend. Yeah that might be doable. My restriction is that I have I don't want to pay for separate IP addresses; with the provider I'm using atm (Heroku), I only get something like 18h of compute time a day or something like that with their free plan. The last provider I was using banned my accounts for using their servers as proxies so I am a bit conservative now with how I use these free services. If this one goes under, the remaining alternatives are honestly kinda shite. Anyway, I think they recently gave me a few extra days of compute time per month. So it's definitely doable if the number of people I track on EU is about the same or smaller than my NA collection. I could also update it less frequently or reduce the update frequency on NA. I'll look into it if I have the time, but for now RL is the priority, unfortunately.

      @CarbonWard is that referring to a new tank or a new player?
