(just an idea for now...)

 

Hall of Fame - Season 1 - 2020

 

So I'm thinking of 'resetting' the default Hall of Fame results starting around the end of November 2019, and then doing so again each year at roughly the same time. So kinda like 'seasons' in a sports league.

The aim would be to 'freshen it up' and keep it more interesting, as well as help combat the issue of buffs/nerfs meaning some records are unbreakable, or too easily broken.

 

Does anyone have any opinions one way or another? 

 

I could / would also keep an 'overall' / 'all time' one around I guess. I appreciate some people in particular have spent a lot of time/effort uploading a lot of replays, and the aim isn't to discredit that. But at the same time, due to the changes to the game over various patches, the Hall of Fame kinda loses its meaning and becomes a bit of a 'who can do best in current flavour of the month'.

 

I'd also likely completely disable 'screenshot proofs' and only allow replays - makes everything much easier. I assume that 99.9% of people's initial replay issues are resolved these days? (performance issues)

 

 

These changes would also allow for some 'competitive' stuff, maybe we can get WG on board to offer some prizes...

As long as you keep an "All time Hall of Fame", then a season Hall of Fame sounds like a good idea.:playing:

 

Every season will of course start off as a blank slate, and if every single tank is reset, then it will be fun to grab a whole bunch of spots in various tanks for some players.:justwait:

Perfect! But I think a better time for the season start could be January 1 to December 31

I think it would be better to separate them by seasons, an example would be to put this year's records as '' Season 2019 '' and by the year 2020 put a section that says '' Season 2020 ''

I guess all that really matters is that you can play with them enabled without causing problems, and you can upload them and wotinspector.com can parse them. Their playback doesn't matter - as long as all the data's there. I know when replays first came out a bunch of people had problems with them causing stuttering in-game while playing. But I assume that's fixed and most everyone can now have them on, if they want.

Yeah, timing is always a difficult Q. In an obvious way, starting on Jan 1st and going for a year makes sense. But I wonder if starting around thanksgiving, late fall/autumn (at least for us NH peeps) will mean a good amount of people can participate during various holidays and get a bunch of records up nice and early, not leaving the place too barren.

There's not really a 'this year', as plenty of people in the last 12 months have uploaded records from various points since they started playing. And while I can sort by when they were uploaded/submitted, that's not the same as when the battle actually happened; I can only sort the replay submissions by when the battles happened. But yeah, seasons 'from now on' is possible and I think makes sense too.

Good stuff, I am all for it as long as you preserve all-time records. 

I think a good seasons marker would be by updates, that way it is easy to see what records may be affected by the buff-nerf cycle. Maybe not every update, but it's up to you.

My initial thought is against this. I like the idea of all time records, regardless of buffs nerfs or seasons. But it sounds like I’m out voted on this one.

Yes. Good idea for me. All time records + Current season

 

Since "you are here" I have a question (I know it should be some where in the site but....). 

I will appreciate if you take the time to reply. Thanks in advance.

 

New tanks WN8,

when does it start to record and show the WN8 for a new tank ? 

I mean after how many days ? I guess 30 ?

Also during this time if you play the new tank and this does not get WN8 is there any effect on the total WN8 calculation ?

Not Sock, but... 

   New tanks Wn8 are relative to how many players have played over 100 battles in it. 
Zero value Wn8 (even if colored black) do not affect your Wn8 results, it only adds that tank to your stats when there is a value to rate.

Every update would be far too frequent, and tying in to every X updates probably too complicated/arbitrary. Though I guess an 'observer' could still gather pre/post particular patches data if they wanted to, but that kind of leads out of the scope of the Hall of Fame and in to general stats/performance stuff.

All views welcome eh ;) There's certainly a part of me that agrees with you. But then another part says 'whats the point in a record from 2015' - what's the relevance to today? It's simply an impressive oddity that has no real reflection on the current state of the game, and it's hard to judge how actually 'impressive' it really is as I think most of us would struggle to remember the intricacies of the game back in specific time periods (and many people wont even have played at that time).

Basically just as __Crusader6__ said, and to add slightly: WN8 compares your stats, via a formula, the the 'average'. But how do we get an average unless people have played the tank? So you wont find a WN8 rating for a particular tank until enough other people (and perhaps yourself included) have played the tank for a 'significant' (statistically speaking, in theory...) amount of games.

Please don't remove the all time records. I spent a lot of time sending in that info and am particularly proud of some of them. However, having a yearly one as well seems like fun.

How about a rolling period ? After one year, any record falls into the “all time record” and leave space to the younger record available.

im sure is a bit more implementation, but it feels less arbitrary than having the record hall totally empty every nov 1st .

 

on the other hand maybe the afficionados would rush and spend every November chasing the fresh  hall of fame entries ? 
hmm well, I’m not really the target user here, so just my 2 cents ...

I feel like many low tier hall of fame scores are impossible to beat now. I’m sure someone more math inclined could do the math but, I don’t think ones like the A-20 are mathematically possible to break now. That shouldn’t be a hall of fame record.

Sure it should.:playing:

 

I don't even have an A-20 for example, but if somebody got an all time hall of fame record in that tank a while back, then it was valid then and should still be valid. It's not the player's fault that the crazy owners went and changed everything. It was gotten in good faith, according to the rules and the state of the game at the time it was achieved.

 

That's why the seasons are a good idea and they would reflect the current state of the game. If a season runs for about 12 months, then whoever is top 10 in a tank for that period will get their names on the 2020 Season for example.

 

I think that it would be bad and revisionist history to go back and erase the achievements of those players who did achieve records in good faith. It's not their fault that WG's running of the game is slightly psychotic and unpredictable. Records weren't easy to achieve back then either, because players were always competing against the entire playerbase. And if a certain tank had different stats, then it did for all players at the time, including many enemy tanks too.:justwait:
