Average Tier error due to T-50-2 replacement

Hello!

Some users might be getting an incorrect average tier along with a message saying that the tank battle count is different from the summary battle count. This error is happening because of the MT-25, which replaced the T-50-2. This is a very simple fix but it might take a little while to update the database, so the website will be offline until then.

Automatic updating re-enabled. New account updating cycle

Hello!

I have just re-enabled the automatic updating, but this time with a change in the way it works to prevent wasting server resources.
Your account will be automatically updated ever day as long as your WoTLabs profile was visited in the last 3 days. Generating the signature image counts towards this, so if you have a signature image somewhere, like forums, your account will count as having been visited.

If you don’t have a signature image anywhere, all you gotta do is visit your WoTLabs profile once every 3 days to keep it being automatically updated.
This way the system can weed out inactive accounts, and only automatically update those of players who are active.

Stats not updating (Problem on Wargaming’s end)

Hello!

A lot of people lately have contacted me about their stats not updating after over 24 hours in some cases. This is a problem on Wargaming’s end.
Their API is not updating as it should, so WoTLabs also can’t get the latest data.

Some bug fixes

Hello!

Just a few bug fixes:

- Fixed bug which prevented clan members from appearing on the page, even though it would report the correct number of members.
– Fixed bug which prevented the WN7 rating for a clan from being shown after a clan stats update.
– Fixed bug which caused the player profile page to report “No data found”.
– Fixed bug which prevented the tank charts from appearing on the player profile page.

WoTLabs News and Updates (09/07/2013)

Hello!

A couple of updates:
– K/D Ratio has been removed from the signature image and replaced with Kills per Game (Avg. Kills). After a long discussion on the WoTLabs forum, the consensus was that K/D Ratio does not do a good job indicating a player’s skill. The best alternative was decided to be Kills per Game.
– Average Experience has been removed from the signature image because seriously, it’s just flawed (exp values with premium bonuses / other bonuses are stored by Wargaming, instead of the base exp). Replaced with Average Tier.
– Fixed an issue where a player’s stats would not update via the signature image generation.

In other news, yesterday we broke 20.000 visits! In only 1 month, WoTLabs’ visits per day has increased from 14.000 to now over 20.000.
We are also very close to reaching 500.000 players tracked across the 3 servers, and we have something special planned to celebrate it. Stay tuned!

60-day Clan Stats is Back and Automatic Update is Gone

Hello!

A few more updates:

- 60-day clan stats has been re-enabled. To use this function, go to the clan page on WoTLabs and click on the button labeled “60-day Stats”.
– Automatic (daily, cron job enabled) stats updating has been permanently disabled. Right now stats attempt* to update when the user goes into their WoTLabs profile page or when viewing their signature image**, making the automatic updating simply a waste of resources.

* Latest stats must be older than 2 hours for the system to attempt an update.
** Signature cache must have been expired so the signature can be regenerated, thus going through the update attempt as explained above.

Goodbye Efficiency

I, and many, many others firmly believe that Efficiency has overstayed its welcome. Being a flawed system as it is, and the existence of the WN rating which is superior in every way, the Efficiency rating is now being removed from the signature images.

Starting right now, this is what the new signature image looks like:

null

WN7 has taken the slot previously occupied by the Efficiency rating, and the bottom slot has been filled with colored bars showing the types of tank you play the most (Navy selected because his bars go completely behind all the labels, makes for a good presentation lol).

Hope you guys enjoy this change. The efficiency rating will continue to be displayed on the website.
