    PlanetaryGenocide reacted to churchill50 in T49 -- Land Arty in a Bite-Size Package   
    Well, I finally got to experience the joy of a 3-man T49 platoon the other day, and I'm just left wondering why I didn't do it sooner. While a lone T49 is a competitive and fun tank, 3 of them in a platoon is absolutely insane.
    We had a ton of hilarious moments, but the best was probably a battle on Redshire. An M53/M55 on our team starts the battle by calling us a fail platoon (meanwhile we were running 70%+ winrate for two days straight in that platoon). We promptly proved him wrong by killing an ELC EVEN 90, AMX 13 90, and Leopard PTA and crippling a Defender in the first two minutes of the battle.

    PlanetaryGenocide reacted to Never in Let's talk about periodic stats, why they were broken, how they were fixed and why my Recent WN8 took a nosedive   
    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!

    PlanetaryGenocide reacted to Never in WoTLabs now shows your Marks of Excellence   
    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!

    I take those a bunch and it's the reason why my hitrate is so low... but, you know...
    Speaking of Barks, I saw him streaming again sometime earlier this month and thought the exact same thing as you, was like "wtf he still plays/streams?"

    So, this happened...
    That's what I like to call a "why the fuck not?" shot. I was actually more concerned with not hitting my teammate in the T-100. I had him just outside of the full screen reticle.
    Also, the replay is interesting to watch. It features Barks_Internally derping out early with 0 damage (I didn't know he still played), a really weird dispersal by the red team and having to suicide derp to reset cap and save the win. For bonus points, a RELIC guy gets accused of hacking.

    PlanetaryGenocide got a reaction from Tarski in Conqueror OP   
    Update.  15 battles in.  Still no Ace yet, haven't broken 5k damage yet despite being close.
    67% winrate and 3k DPG though, which is probably unsustainable but god dammit this tank is good.  I was platooning with another Conqueror and a Type 4 earlier and we were pushing into brawls by ourselves solo and just flattening them, inspiring our pub shitters to follow us into the breach and winning flanks ez mode.
    Can't wait for the super conq too I'm gonna need another brit crew...

    Here we see an Emil in its natural habitat, little does it know that danger lurks nearby.
    A poor Leopard trying valiantly to defend his base is no match for some sweet sweet lovin.

    I'm 14 battles away from 2k battles in this little monster.
    It'll probably take me another two or three months to actually finish those 14 battles but for those battles I'm loading full prem consumables (plus cola), a firefighting directive, and full gold HE.
    Because I can.

    Thanks man!  I had a goal of getting it before 1.1 and also before I hit 2k battles in it, and I'm happy to say that I achieved both goals.
     
    Also, since the last 2 or so minutes of the game were just utterly hilarious, I made it into a video for y'all's enjoyment.  Unfortunately I'm not able to put Yakkety Sax over it since youtube will remove it, but whatever you can just dual video it.  Featuring @Trobs getting blapped (twice), some sick nasty jukes all over the place, and a kill every 21 seconds.
     
    My main mistake was coming out from behind cover at the very end - there was literally zero reason for me to do that to let the O-Ni shoot me, but truth be told I was laughing too hard to care and I knew I had the mark at that point as I went into this battle with 94.2%.  If I hadn't done that, I A. could've had a Radley's at the VERY LEAST (Mauschen had <100 hp, O-Ni is penetrable from the side with HE, and I outspot them both easily) and B. I had a decent chance of actually pulling out the win and my first and only Kolobanov's as well as this being my first three mark, as long as arty didn't get lucky.
    My second mistake was eating the shot from the skorp for the kill - I was lucky that the A-44 and 416 were so bad.
     
    All in all, a very fun way to cap off my climb towards third mark on this tank.  I can finally do whatever the fuck I want in this tank.
     
    Or maybe I should go for 100%...
