  1. Hey guys, just an FYI. You can now connect to the WoTLabs TS without the port number, just typing in ts.wotlabs.net
  2. Will work on making it available for smaller screen sizes!
  3. Hey man, thank you so much for the support! I've added you to the Patron group and your account should now update automatically once a day!
  4. Hello! A new feature has been released on WoTLabs. Now you can see a detailed list of all the tanks that you played during the 24 hour, 7 days, 30 days, 60 days and Recent periods. At the last row of each column, you will see an option to show the breakdown for that period. Using this, players can identify problem areas more easily, allowing them to see exactly which tank is having the most impact on their performance. Hope you guys like it!
  5. Hello! So all that I'm gonna talk about here happened last night over a period of around 4 hours. This post is VERY wordy and somewhat rambly, so be warned. First things first, I'm working on a new feature that will let you see a "Period Breakdown" of each period, so for the period of, say, 24 hours, you will be able to see all the tanks that are counting in that column, along with each tank's individual stats for that period. But in creating this feature, I ran into a problem where there were massive discrepancies between the amount of battles that the Account Information method provided, and the sum of the battle count of your tanks. For instance, the difference between your overall battle count between the latest update and the one 24 hours ago might have been of 20 battles, but if took the battles played by each tank over this same period and added them up, the number would sometimes be different. Sometimes they were off by just a couple of battles, sometimes by 10 or more. This is obviously a great issue for a website that is supposed to provide statistical accuracy. I believe that what causes this issue is that not all of the methods of the API are updated all at once, so when the system grabs your stats, your overall battle count updated, but not your individual tank statistics. Again, that's just me throwing a possibility out there, I'd have to talk to someone who has access to the API to know for sure, and I have no idea who that might be. The way I fixed this was simple: We stopped relying on the overall numbers, and started deriving everything from the sum of each individual tank's statistics. That's what's used to calculate your WN8 already, so it's a logical step. As for potential issues, the only problem should arise in the fairly uncommon case where a tank takes a long time to be added to the API, so players would play several battles in a tank over a period of time that would all get lumped together under the "24 Hours" column once the tank's information got added to the API and WoTLabs could actually see what tank you were playing all along. But the thing is, this issue already happens! It's just masked because the numbers that were shown in the columns were based on those overall numbers which always get updated. The only place where you could see this issue happening was in your Average Tier and WN8 calculations, which several players have noticed and reported on this forum. WIth the now fully functioning system that automatically checks and updates tank information once a day and no longer relies on me checking for new tanks manually, this should be an even more uncommon case. With that fixed, the feature that allows you to see a detailed list of the tanks played during a certain period will be released very soon! Whew, that was a long one. Now, for the last topic of discussion: Why my Recent WN8 took a nosedive, and why yours (in very rare cases) might as well: Back in May 2016, we had to create a new table to hold all the detailed tank information (which is the data used to calculate WN8) since the original one could no longer perform its duty. The old table remained behind for historical queries, but as time went on and disk space became an issue, very old data started to be deleted, including those very old records that were no longer relevant... Or were they? Drama aside, if you're like me and you played very few battles between May 2016 and now, your Recent WN8 might have taken a nosedive. Recent WN8, as you probably know, is based on your last 1000 battles. When the system checked for the update made 1000 (or close to 1000) battles ago, it would take the timestamp and look for the tank information so it could calculate the WN8 for this period. However, if this update happened before May 2016, then there are no more tank information stored! This means that the system was actually using your overall tanks to calculate your Recent WN8, making them look very similar to each other, as was my case. The way this was fixed was to tell the system to ignore every update made before May 2016, and only look for those made after that point. If you played over 1000 battles between May 2016 and now, no problem at all! if not, then the closest update that has tank information available will be used. In my case it's my last 428 battles, which unfortunately encompasses the 370 battles that I've played in the past month since coming back to the game and sucking really, really bad. So yeah, RIP my Recent WN8, but at least it's not a lie anymore. That is all for now! If you made it this far, sorry for all the words. I really, really like to write. Cheers!
  6. The WN Rank colors uses the same percentiles as the WN8 scale, but due to WN Rank only counting players with over 5000 battles, the population is much smaller. I'm considering using the player's WN8 category color or just doing away with WN Rank colors altogether.
  7. Oh wow, my bad... Yeah, there was a period I just stopped visiting the forum, that was a mistake. My apologies
  8. Wow, I had this backwards the whole time... And nobody brought it up until now... WELP
  9. Hey hey, our code has been updated thanks to the awesome @TragicLoss! Se rubbed off some of her awesome on the code and it now works on ALL REGIONS! The code is now WOTLABS2019.
  10. Hello! As part of a larger update that will enable global tank statistics on WoTLabs, we can also now show the Marks of Excellence that you have achieved on your vehicles. In order for your Marks of Excellence to be displayed, WoTLabs will need to update your statistics, which can only happen after cache clears (usually after 12 hours after the last update) and if you've played one or more battles since the last update, so if your marks aren't yet showing up, this might be the reason why. Hope you guys enjoy it, and stay tuned for more!
  11. Hello! As some know, I recently had to disable statistics updates through the signature images. Turns out I severely underestimated the usage of the signature images in relation to their impact, and the extra updates were eating up 10 GB of disk space per day, which is unsustainable. However, having statistics update automatically without the need for the user to visit their WoTLabs profile is still a very popular request, but due to the impact on our server, I decided to add this as a new perk to our Patrons. If you're a Patron, the account that you have used to verify your forum account will be automatically updated once a day. This way, you don't need to keep visiting your page to keep your statistics up-to-date. In fact, you don't even need to do anything at all. Our system will take care of everything while you're away. Our Patreon Patreon is a way for us to offset the substantial costs or running servers for WoTLabs. Even $1 per month helps us immensely, and as a bonus perk (along with all the perks here in the forum), you won't see any ads on WoTLabs as long as you're logged into the forum account which is in the Patron group. If you sign up on Patreon, PM me on the forum letting me know, and I'll set up your forum account on our Patron group as soon as possible. Make sure your account is verified, and the account which you used to verify will always have its statistics updated automatically! Thank you so much to all our Patrons, former, current and future. Hope you guys like this new perk! Cheers!
  12. Apologies to everyone, this function had to be temporarily disabled as it nearly caused the server to run out of disk space. I will reenable it once I have a good pruning system in place to prevent the database from just growing without control.
  13. Holy fuck I can sign in as anyone on the forums including Never ~Assassin
