Hi all, maybe you have noticed, that there have been only a little activity in terms of updating features on the WoTcs. Well, it was because I had a lot of work lately, but I want to assure you that I am far from done with this project.
Here I’ll describe some features which I plan to add. Please comment to let me know which of these you would like to see most, so I can put some priorities on them.
1. Player accounts using Wargaming ID
This would allow you to sign in into my site with credentials you have for World of Tanks. That would verify who you are and you could take control over your player page on WoTcs. One of the main advantages I am planning to give to those signed in, is ability to set automatic updates at specified time. So, for example you could set to have every day at 6:00 generated report how were your stats last day.
Also some other ideas I have, are that you could leave message on your player page to leave message to those viewing it (I am not sure how would this turn out). Also, I plan something similar for clans, but that is for entirely other blog post.
2. Integrating new API
I don’t know if you heard, but now there is new API which allows you to distinguish between games played in Random battles, Tank companies and CWs. Almost every stats page has already implemented this (only I am so slow ), so you can expect that this has very high priority at the moment. Also since this page was always focused on clans primarily, what would you say if there was rating which would be based on how well clan did in the CWs.
3. New design and UX
Currently I started working on new, more user friendly design. There isn’t much done yet, but you can monitor my progress at the new beta page.
If you have some great idea or feature request, please share it with me in the comments. Also, be sure to let me know, which one of the features I have listed, sounds best to you.
For those interested in how everything works, I am sharing the links to sources of this project:
These two are the API servers I made, and you can see them when you look at AJAX request that are than when loading clans and players.
And finally the source of the beta page. It is made in Ruby on Rails, which I am using now and it’s great!
