#3918468 Season 13 Title Calculator

Posted Starcookie on 26 July 2013 - 12:30 PM

Q) Why does it say 0 for everything on my BG?
A) This will only happen during the first few hours of release. Situations like this occur because there have been no teams submitted yet for your BG. Submitting any team on your BG, even the rank 1 team, will resolve this.

Q) Can you create one for RBG?
A) Currently the way data is pulled from the armory does not support enough results for a RBG title calculator. This may change in the future.

Q) Can you update it to tell me how much rating I need to get to the next title?
A) On certain BG's, yes. On other BG's, no. Blizzard only allow X amount of teams to be pulled from the armory, meaning that larger BG's do not reveal all of their data. Given this would not work on all BG's, I decided not to add it.

Q) It says 0 glad spots, even though there is a 0 rated team. Why?
A) Blizzard round down with all numbers. Even if there were 1.99 getting Gladiator, that would round down to 1, which is the same as 0. Any time it is a '1', this is reserved for Rank 1. The calculator keeps this in mind.

Q) How accurate is this?
A) It is as accurate as you make it. If you submit a 0-20 team, it will be 99% accurate (the 1% is the off chance they change the way rounding works, but given the way numbers work, this is unlikely). If there is not a 0-20 team submitted for your BG, take it with a pinch of salt.

Q) Why won't my team submit?
A) Probably because it has played all 20 of its games this week. For a team to be allowed entry, it MUST return a rank from the API. This means the season must be 0-20, not week 0-20.

Q) Do you store information about me?
A) The short answer is, yes. When you view the page, your visit is logged to enable me to track visits/refreshes per day to then compare with bandwidth usage and to then see if automatic refreshing is enabled or disabled. If you submit a team that is rejected, it is not stored. If you submit a team that is accepted, the previous team is deleted. The only information that is permanently stored, is page visits. This is no different to any other site, however if you do not wish for this information to be stored then please do not to visit.

Q) Mobile/I PAD support?
A) Not currently planned.

Q) Ingame addon so I don't have to leave the game to get updates?
A) That's actually something I would love to do. To my knowledge, Blizzard does not allow HTTP calls through addons (such to return data), meaning this would currently not be possible. If I'm wrong, feel free to drop me a PM and I'll look into making this into an addon.

Q) Support?
A) PM.

Bug list:

- Rank 1 is currently returned as Cataclysmic Gladiator, instead of Grievous Gladiator.
- Teams that have played more than 20 games this week, but less than 20 games in the season that have been assigned a rank are unable to be submitted.

The season end announcement is closing in.

Prepare yourself and your team by getting a better understanding of where your team currently stands and where it needs to stand in order to qualify for rewards.


EU, US and RU is supported including 2v2 (for reference), 3v3 and 5v5. For the best results please submit 0-20 teams that have a rank visible in the armory.

Good luck to all those competing for titles.

I tried to register the same team and it didn't work, then I tried to register 2 different teams that are below the rating of the one that's already registered but none of them worked.
here are the teams I tried to register:
http://eu.battle.net...s/3v3/ema timy/
http://eu.battle.net.../Vysocina bros/

also this team has been there for 3weeks but it still says it's been played this week, pretty weird:


Submitting this worked for me.

It was an API issue, for some reason the rankings just hadn't updated. Now that they have, the submitting worked (and will do if you find a lower team as well).

It's extremely weird for the played to update, with the rank not updating though. As I said before, I haven't previously seen this happen.

Why does this team give me an error when i try to register it

To be entirely honest, I'm not sure.

The API is returning rank 1170 for your team, however for the team currently submitted (http://eu.battle.net...Ta poutsilikia/) it returns 1207 - Meaning, in the eyes of the API, the team that is currently submitted is ranked lower than your team, despite you having a lower rating.

I've never seen that happen before... ever. The best I can do is email the API guys and ask them why the result is coming back incorrectly. It could be as simple as that current team did not refresh in the armory on Wednesday for some reason. All my system does it pull the information Blizzard provides, calculates if it already knows of a lower team and, if not, stores it.

I'd suggest to try it again on Wednesday.

If it doesn't work on Wednesday, post again or PM me and I'll clear Reckoning EU, as it's then more likely to be a bug on my side.

This Cyclone 0-20 team gives me an error.

The team is unranked as it played all games this week.

AS3 is pretty worthless at this point unless you are coding Facebook Flash games. You should probably take this opportunity to learn a useful programming language.

Doesn't really matter since AJ always has a title calculator when the 2 week notice comes out.

I couldn't disagree more, if you're not in the field then you don't realise how much Flash is still used, even for iPhone and Android apps (Angrybirds being a key example).

As for representation, it is down hugely compared to the previous season.

On this calculator, the glad range is 20 atm, and you're rank 23.


Those 3 teams arent able to get glad :
http://eu.battle.net... and safe team/
http://eu.battle.net...ive me your IP/
http://eu.battle.net...and safe patch/

But seriously, even with this don't feel securized, there will probably be new teams going for glad until late feb. (means also more spots in the glad range, but wont change that much)

Contrary to belief, the calculator is capable of taking these in to account.

To get the best results for your team, use the bottom bar and enter your team URL. It will check (taking into account inactive teams) what your current rank actually is and what the title you are going to get is.

If your BG has a 0-20 team submitted, then it doesn't matter which calculator you use; the result will be the same (totalRank * 0.005, rounded down).

My calculator is completely transparent and shows you the team it is referencing, as Thaya pointed out. You could simply view the source of that page on the armory, find the rank and do the exact same math (to all intents and purposes, that is all a calculator does, it just makes the numbers for other titles based on this as well and uses the API rather than view source).

You can view my calculator here.

i'm sorry

Blazing, whilst I already know you do not know any programming languages, the app is coded using AS3. This means that anyone can decompile the code and check what is inside of it. The PHP side is controlled using an open-source framework and the XML is output here (infact, all AS3 does is pull this information in and make it look pretty. You could quite simply just look at this core XML code and read the title results, meaning no information about your visit would even be stored).

You're welcome to use it or you're free not to use it.

This is here as a helpful tool to those who want it.

The only responses I'll be giving after this point will be for questions/comments relating to the app.

#3805057 Arena exploit fixed, mass ban inc/gear removed

Posted Starcookie on 14 November 2012 - 08:08 PM

It turns out their hotfix only made it so teams lose Team/Personal rating upon leaving, they still do not lose MMR. Even so, it will stop the majority of the people abusing the system as you now need 4 teams, not 2.

Whilst I don't know anything else, it really feels like they actually have some sort of issue preventing them from making changes to the MMR this season... But that's just me speculating.

#3804906 MMR exploit is back

Posted Starcookie on 14 November 2012 - 03:45 PM

I've updated my post with a bit more information.

It seems extremely unlikely at this point that there will be a ladder/MMR reset.

Bans are starting from today. Account penalties are:

- 72 hour suspension

However, MMR/Achievements are not reset.

#3802234 Some helmets disappeared...

Posted Starcookie on 10 November 2012 - 02:18 AM

The system was updated to purposely do that, AJ did not like that users were selling characters and retaining their titles.

If the character does not exist as the one you have added, the titles that were associated with that character are now removed.

The only exception to this is titles added before Season 8 on the VBulletin system.

#3796931 Season 12 Junkie Access Reset

Posted Starcookie on 30 October 2012 - 03:21 PM

The current required rating is under review. Keep in mind we're only a few weeks into the season, though.

Additionally, I believe it is now possible for access to be granted based on RBG rating.

I suspect rating requirements will be lowered, should nothing change, with the release of Patch 5.1.

@ Starcookie : you should focus on improving instead of bitching like that because trust me you are really bad at this game, i won't even bother making things i know about you public because it implies other persons but i know how much of an horrible human being you are too.

I don't see any bitching in my post, at all.

You're more than welcome to post the "things" you know, you've made me curious.

You talk about a horrible community, yet your post itself is nothing but flaming. Not exactly helping improve your community there, are you?

The amount of information in regard to season end dates, expansion dates, and title calculators by far outdoes what the majority of the members of this website have put forth. Put ontop of that my full year's work of Moderating and it makes me wonder why I bother to still post. Infact, this will probably be my last - I said that I wasn't going to keep posting the information I know if people flame.
