Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Im slowly working through the scores, so we should be up to date soon, and I shall also post a league table of the kills game (hopefully) tonight.

Just one word for the Bots.
You guys need to get organised. Quickly.
You've been making the odd little gains in isolated batches of 20 missions, but you always lose more in the next batch. And the whole lot of you should be ashamed for this particular batch of 20:

Now that, would work perfectly.

And because I absoloutely REFUSE to cut it out, it wouldn't be too much to put into a spreadsheet for the number crunchers amongst us?


This is what I did for the Pred vs. Max tourney. Simple process.

- Create HTML file (through excel) which enumerates all tournament missions (start mission # + 5 copied down many rows and use excel equations to put <a href=...> tags around the mission #)
- Open HTML file in Firefox
- Use DownThemAll to get all HTML files on local machine (so Seibertron has no major impact; it has a one time request to load the missions from my machine and then my machine saves the HTML from its in memory firefox session)
- Use regular expressions to slice and dice participants, winners, blah blah
- Paste expression results into excel
- Pivot tables for the win

The pain was the regular expressions. I never automated it. So it took me 30-90 minutes per round to get data into excel and pivoted / filtered to only report on tournament participants.

Reddy-poos objection to this though is quite valid. Old school checking adds involvement. I liked the Pred vs. Max trash talking and we still tracked postings. The regex madness was confirmation and to get totals for factions (translate: saved me time). The idea was quite sound for mission win counting and kill counting. Would help in scalp hunt validation significantly if someone could automate what already exists.

p.s. I shared this with Psych before I last disappeared due to life. However I'm not sure I ever transferred knowledge well enough to make it reusable.

p.s.s. Oh, and formatting to post into the forum was painful... I finally resorted to posting images so the pivot table matrix would be clear.

p.s.s.s. Happy fragging!!! :)

Just a reminder that the tournament finishes at 9pm GMT (about3 and a quarter hours time). I will announce the final mission (the closest counting one to close admission before 9pm) as soon as I know it.

This last day has been one of the most enjoyable hunts I've ever partaken in. There's nothing like a really close contest to make it interesting.

Shame I utterly ran out of level 3s in the last 3 quarters of an hour. Gave you an advantage at the most inopportune moment.

Ahh well, well done Chaos, looks like you won this time.

Congratulations to all the 'Cons: looks like your inter-faction competition was a whole lot more exciting than the inter-'Bot competition. Special congrats to Chaoslock who seems to have won the top commander position.

I didn't check the whole claims list in detail yet, but I'm assuming that with a lack of RoS' claims, I got the most kills on the 'Bot side. Not the way I'd like to win, because I know RoS was in all those missions alongside me and killed big numbers. Still, I 'm pretty happy with the result. I wish the rest of the 'Bots had scored better, though: it would probably have made me slightly more competitive in the overall competition. Still, this was a very enjoyable competition (and the first one I actually kept score for). Special thanks to Red to making the competition possible!
I'm so meta, even this acronym...
