Web Tools for WoW Nerds
Otherwise, the new server seems to be humming along without too much of a problem. Please let me know if you run into any errors or performance problems! Most pages should load in under a second after the initial big work is done so let me know if anything is sluggish. Note that the first time you run a compare or if an armory cache is stale, it may take a little while to collect all the data from external sites (aka World of Logs and the WoW Armory).
Raidbots.com is now live!
The new historical Top DPS stuff is all there. The one launch caveat is that there is not yet a lot of data for heroics, 10 mans, or the summaries. These are gathering data daily and should start making more sense once there’s 2+ weeks of parses seen.
Let me know if you run into any problems or if you see any old links that don’t properly redirect!
Sometime last night, CompareBot ran its 10,000th compare. Pretty sweet milestone!
Hope you all like the tools and always feel free to contact me (here, email, wherever) with ideas, bugs, and whatnot!
Got a bunch of exciting stuff that’s so close to being ready I can taste it. Here’s what’s coming:
I’ll probably be doing all the migration work this weekend so keep on eye out for the new stuff!
Also, I’m getting closer to finishing the historical view of the Top DPS. It’s coming along nicely and should provide a pretty nice way to watch classes gain/lose relative power after patches or as higher level gear becomes available to the top ranking players.
So yeah, got linked from WoW Insider and traffic has soared. Let me know if you like what you see, if there are any problems, or anything else that floats your boat.
Given the new interest, I will probably be adding 10 man specific information to the CompareBot since a lot of people have been running compares on 10 man content. I’ve been running 25 man so haven’t had my own logs to look at for that information but I’ll go scour other guilds and get that up and running.
Next step after that is to actually style up and finish UI for the historical DPS averages for the Top DPS Tool. Data is being collected every day when the pages get refreshed but there’s no place to actually see that info right now.
Simple off-site blog for updates and information regarding my Roll Initiative Tools site. And perhaps any other WoW related mumblings I care to write and share.
