Elmaonline battle Ranking has been broken for years

Post by Zero » 15 Feb 2018, 08:31

As an active and competitive battler it really sucks that elmaonline statistics are faulted.

There are not even ranks. Everybody has been rank 1000 for years at this point making the leaderboard absolutely meaningless. Although battling is the most active form of playing in our community this problem takes away the competitive side of it.

Yearly stats are both incorrect and misleading. The stats seems to be correct for some but not for others. Extremely unfair. It currently states that I have played over 800 battles this year while the real number must be closer to 150-200. Zweq also has +200 played this year and I counted no more than 17 in his profile :D

I know fixing all of this will be a lot of work but it should be seriously considered...

Battles are played daily with great passion and it would be nice for it all to be meaningful once again

With love, Zerppa :roll:

I really hope you or any of the mods do not take any of this as a personal attack because it's really not.

This is just one of the issues that could be worked on by people who have the time and motivation to participate in the community. This kind of a change could snowball into more battle activity and more interest towards the scene in general.

That could also result in more people designing high effort levels

Not at all. There's a million things we could do to improve things and we'll never do half of them, so it's nice to get feedback on what's most important. Don't get a lot of that.

Finding a good algorith or just formula is something anyone can do, just some research into what other comparable games does.

Kopaka, what about the broken stats (battle counts etc), any idea where that comes from? That should be quite a high priority to fix imo.

My theory is that it for some reason runs the same battles multiple times some times. Most probable solution is rewriting it from scratch, since I'd rather not look at the current code, and might be easier anyway to make it more stable. Which is why I mentioned the ranking, since it would be nice/easier to do that at the same time.

I can look at the ranking and try to test some ideas if I find time/orkage. What's the likely timeframe? Weeks/months/years? :wink:

people underestimate how much work there is with any stuff like that
a bit more than updating some top10 or external table once a year

I'm not entirely serious you know and no I won't quit, not even trying to drag others with me. It is well known many kuskis have a hard time staying away from the game, as it is quite addictive.
