Got some questions in chat regarding BB2Stats and goblinSpy, but chat is too small to respond so, this is the response.
what does best playmaker measure? I counted and rewatched the replay several times and i can only hazard that the stats are all doubled?
Wow, yea, feels like BB2Stats was forever ago.
Please note that I'm doing as little as possible on goblinSpy and basically nothing on BB2Stats nowadays, because I got other things to do.
But I'll see if I can answer things for you.
Some stats are calculated based on the replays and may therefore be only somewhat correct, and some stats are as calculated by the game.
Playmaker is just the title for the leaderboard ranking based on meters passed (or InflictedMetersPassing as cyanide call it).
InflictedMetersPassing is calculated by the game.
Just went with the name, but looked at the replay now and it seems to be the value for meters passed, but placed on the receivers, not the passers...
I should remove playmaker since it's catcher related and not passer related...
As for doubled, it's the values given by cyanide, so I assume they call each square 2 meters.
If you look at the numbers neaer the sideline on this screenshot, you can see that it is also consistent with the game:
anyway to hide columns in goblinspy?
Hiding columns in goblinSpy is still a bit "advanced".
I was planning to make it easy, but I never got to it.
If you open the advanced mode on a query by clicking "Edit", you can add or remove "Alias".
Add an alias, set to "<hide>" on the column value you want to hide and then press "Execute query".
This will be remembered if you use the "Export view" to show the result to somweone else or embedded on a page.
why isnt goblinspy as useful as statsgrabber?
all the leagues ive seen seem to prefer your previous work. (the sorting was easier)
Well it depends on what you mean by useful.
GoblinSpy is much more advanced and allow you to filter on basically anything,
you can check how many teams are Ork teams with TV > 1400 and no Concedes, or whatever you
want to know.
The main drawbacks as I see it:
No calculated stats, such as Good/neutral/bad blocks, Risk, Luck, Dodges, Pickups etc, in the normal lists.
This is because the server would not like it if it had to download and process all thousands of replay files so I only use what is already calculated by Cyanide for goblinSpy.
BB2Stats was limited by the number of people uploading, goblinSpy is not...
You can still see most of the advanced stats on goblinSpy if you click the magnifying glass on the game and then choose details.
This is not gonna change.
This is because a quick sort like what is used on BB2Stats would only sort whats currently on screen.
If you have Cabalvision Open League with thousands of games, you need to sort based
on all games, including what's not currently shown on screen.
And you can't show all thousands of games on the same screen.
I therefore choose to use query-sorting instead of quick-sorting.
I have considered a "non-query" mode of goblinSpy for smaller leagues, but it takes time and effort
and I'm not motivated enough to do that at the moment.
This is most likely not gonna change.
No "front page" with leaderboard etc.
This may change.
If you got any ideas to make it more useful, let me know.
I might not bother to implement it, but you never now.
