Maybe the sisters got lost in the db somewhere, will have to take a look at that.

@Postman, yeah generate a new api key and it should all be good. Would suggest using the api links in order to generate a key that has all the permissions needed.

Lurkers of this thread - and this post specifically will get a preview of the newest addition to [eb] - [eb]Global

Add /global to get there and look around before it's being announced/linked as a "live" part of the site.

G-rankings, I'm not really sure how/if they should even be on there since it's somewhat limited and I can't really see them moving around that much.

Sweet! Could you elaborate a bit on how it works / how it gets its data?

Also you should probably filter CCP/GM/ISD characters, or list them seperately.

It gets all its data from CCP's API. No space magic.

As for the CCP pilots, it would be a manual flag that's needs to be set if so, since they have no special tag by default.

thank you for putting the sisters, and the society in the standing window Big smile
The eveboard global is interresting, but feels strange with CCP characters.
Perhaps removing characters older than the game launching date after importing the data would give more "normal" statistics.
There might still be some strange characters, but at least a good quantity would be removed.

I can register any characters... =(

Error encountered
Error occured trying to fetch API, Message: Key has expired. Contact key owner for access renewal.

I am using a new api key that is set to never expire and this is what I see every time I try to make an account. I have tried several different api keys, this is really getting frustrating.

I did the same thing and created a new API wih no expiry date and it still isn't accepted for some reason.

If both of you send me your API keys/userid I wil take a manual look at it - might be something still in system preventing you from registering. If in doubt also use the API shortcut on [eb] when creating the key to ensure all needed permissions are included.

@digital - the last API error that disabled your account said "Reason: Illegal page request! Please verify the access granted by the key you are using!" - sounds like not all permissions needed were included in your key there.

Has something changed in the way EB calculates overall ranking?

It seems that overnight one of my characters went down circa ~2'000 in rankings while the amount of new players changed only little... or could injecting two new skills affect in a such a dramatic way?

Tho other character still has about the same ranking as yesterday despite injecting new skills to her too.

Hmnn.

I keep posting these questions here in case there's some minor "clitches" going on the database, but I suppose you know about them and in the future I will restrain myself from these little silly questions =)



EB is very good service and I value your work with it among other (in my case those eve-related) projects.

The calculations are always weird haha, but it might be that new pilots get a different value compared to older ones if they went over the "limit" of number of pilots. I will try look into if there's something weird going on.

Hello,
I think it would be nice to be able to compare the character with others of similar date. For example to put a filter that compares everything but instead of with all players, only those that have + - 1 year for example.
Now except for 1 player (2005), all top 10 players are very old (2003). That is normal. But it would be nice to know how more recent players are ranked with others of similar beginning.
If not, if we could see next to the column of the ranks, also the year so we can easily see similar players.

In the same way, there could also be a rank with top 10 year 2003, top 10 year 2004, top 10 year 2005...

That is only a suggestion. If it is too much work, or seems a bad idea, forget it ;)

[eb] might be querying API info from different IP's than the normal while I am experiencing routing issues to CCP's servers.

Will be IP's ending on .9 and .56

How about a corp standings rank? Big smile

in 2007 i've thought it's a sci-fi simulator, not an "e-sports" game. I'm not a teenager, how would i like it much?

The number that represents the average standings to an NPC corps that player has.

Or it's can be more complex and interesting:

Most loyal = (Corp_1 + Corp_2+Corp_N) * (AVERAGE_STANDING/10)

If it'll be just an average of all, there will be a flaw: if the player doing missions for 1 corp all his life, it's a 100% win.

The second formula it's something interesting now when i've thought about that.

It's shows exactly how good the player's connections with an NPC's. A hell of a race for carebears, one more interesting thing for such a boring activity :)
And it's can't be screwed by having a lot of 5.0 standings which are far more easily to achive, it's not be at the top when the player has one 10.0 corp, and some low corp standings will not ruin the entire work. Althrough it'll be good to raise them.
