I guess that sounds like a good idea LoadAimFireRun, but I am a noob on the forums, not sure where it should be created, or how.

 

I have a new version of the site i'm going to release shortly, but will wait until the current round of challenges have finished.

Maybe you could make a post in the https://wotbfanzone.eu/forum/, home of FUZ and some other german clans. Just to make it more popular, although they know about your site

Thanks to everyone who has taken part in the challenges so far, testing has gone better than I expected, all your help has been much appreciated.

 

There are currently 18 challenges running, and i'd like to get them all finished ASAP, so i can release a new version of the code.  So if you are taking part, please can you check to see if you have any active battles waiting, or if you need to start your matches.

 

Thanks again everyone.

I’ll check mine tonight, cant do them today, glad to hear testing has gone well, it’s worked a treat for me and it’s provided a really new and interesting angle to tanks I’d not driven much recently...

Hy, I did what I could, got a couple of others waiting on the other player, which prompted a couple of suggestions:

Is there anyway to automatically send an in-game message to the other player to remind them the challenge has started?

Could you add a timeout so if they don't play their games in a set time it's a default loss?  Say 48 or 72 hours.  You'd need to also capture players defaulting and stop them entering anymore challenges for say a month after 3 defaults or something like that.  That would stop cheaters using a second account to get them a bye every time.

Thanks Mjr_Eazy, yes I think there will have to be some time limit probably 48 hours. and a default period of exclusion possibly for constant reoffenders.  will have to work this stuff out, and put it in a challenge rules section so player know what time limits are.

Also as a suggestion; please try to include some higher tier challenges. I normally don't play anything lower then tier 7 (except for acing older tanks or grinding creds).

I was trying to put a range of them on, to attract as many users as possible, and to test the different game modes, higher tier ones are important though i agree.

He cant send reminders like with normal turnaments, only message players

If needs be i can get people to register email addresses and send notifications that way - but would rather not do this - might do a companion phone app, that will allow notifications

Looking forward to the next release, gr8 stuff :medal: and I really like the challenges part, anyone reading this who haven’t tried them then give them a whirl, they add a new fun competitive element to playing certain tanks.

 

Edit: MM not sure if you’ve seen the post there’s an alternative forum moderated by CC’s starting out so I took the liberty of posting about your site there too as it might get some people who are no longer here on-board, there’s some feedback on the thread there...

https://wotbstars.com/topic/307-blitztankstatscom/

It seemed appropriate to post there as that was the home of another minimalist looking stats site :)

Did a minor update yesterday, to fix a bug introduced by the last release, and also to add a Medals column to the stats grid.  Thanks to all who are suggesting improvements for me, it is very useful.  A few challenges still have spaces in the last batch, if any one wants to try.

Great site, the challenges are really fun. Maybe you should post a link in the gameplay section as its the only one people are really reading. So far its mostly the German Fanzone- community carrying the challenges ;) .

 

One question: is there a time limit after which a player automatically loses the match if he doesnt play it? And what happens if someone registers for loads of matches but never plays any?

I'm there, i've not figured out if it works, I'm not sure it does but in latest version after 36 hrs you should be able to press the button to get a bye...

I'm loving the challenges, I think they are a brilliant idea and add something new...

Although of course it's all rigged, protected players, blah, blah,blah ;)

I wasn't sure where the best place to post was - but yeah - i'll maybe do another one in the gameplay section.  As Mjr_Eazy said, once you have started a match, and played your 3 games, your opponent has 36 hours to complete theirs.  if they haven't done this, then if you view the match after 36 hours has passed, then a Bye button should appear under your name - allowing you to give yourself a Bye into the next round.

Obviously it is best and more sporting to contact the player, in game, and remind them.  

I'm working on a discord bot, that will be able to notify you when certain events happen, such as challenge fully registered, match started, you are through to the next round, etc - should have it ready soon hopefully.

 

I'll maybe add something in the future, to only allow you to participate in so many events, depending on how much of a problem it becomes, and how popular the challenges get.  It's early days yet, though and am still testing everything works ok and ironing out problems.

 

thanks for your feedback though, and i'm glad you are enjoying the challenges, so far.
