Where and how to get vbaddict data?

11 posts in this topic

I've been trying to access data from vbaddict for a long time without success.  Basically am looking for server data that would be used for WN8 expected values, like player average tier, average damage, kpg, win rates, etc.  Where to go, what to do?  any help would be appreciated.

vBAddict used to have an API thing for 3rd party devs etc. ill have to look for it. Phalynx might have taken it down when it was sold though

edit: he did. its avail by email only now

Do you need some data collected by vBAddict to spice up your own project? Ask me via marius.czyz [at] gmail.com to get access to the vBAddict API.

yep.  I got no reply by e-mail, so looking for another approach.  I'd be happy if someone has any of the old data used during the development of WN8 or determining expected WN8 values.  IIRC it was initially done on 100000 players.

How much data do you need and from what server? I'm still pulling server data from all regions every month, tracking 8.8 million players who were active about half a year ago. You'd have to deal with the format though, which is CSV for player data and each tank, but then colon seperated for individual tank data inside the comma seperation of tanks (data,data,data,tankid:tankdata:tankdata,tankid etc). I also don't save the tier of the tank, just the ID, so you'd need to pull a list of ID's from the API if you wanted data like that. In other words, if you can write a program, the data will be useful to you, otherwise I guess I could look around for Nixon's excel sheets that I used to help adjust the color scale of WN8 like 2 years ago.

Why not use WG's API then? It covers the data you just specified.

I'm a total noob when it comes to APIs.  Wondering if someone already had some of that data mined from work on earlier WN series.

I have to hand it to WG this time: their API info is great

OK slowly figuring it out.  Gotta go 100 accounts at a time, but I think I can manage.

@NeatoMan If you haven't come up with an app yet to grab all that data, I did finally find the old data that @RichardNixon posted... It's a few years old though. Let me know if you want it, I have both NA and EU server.

@Android25 sorry for the late response.  If you still have that data, I'd love to have it.
