Figured I would actually make an "official" EJ post to gather feedback and ideas for RaidBots as well as spread the word a little more.
Here's the rundown of the live tools:
See your own raid parses over time compared against the rest of the world. See how you measure up!
At its core, CompareBot can do a few things with World of Logs parses:
- Compare specific player parses against each other or summarize an entire attempt across the whole raid.
- Highlight important buffs and debuffs and call out potential mistakes.
There are a lot of ways that raid leaders and raiders use the tool every day:
- Compare yourself against the top ranking players to see what they're doing differently than you.
- Compare 2 or 3 of your raiders of the same spec to see why one might be falling behind.
- Drop in a whole raid to see who's standing in fire the most.
This bot collects information from all public parses from World of Logs every night, crunches the numbers, and then presents them in pretty graph and table form for all you data nerds.
There's a lot of cool information here. Right now the main slices you can check out are the top 100 parses from the last 2 weeks or EVERY SINGLE KILL PARSE from World of Logs. You can now see a quantifiable answer to "what is the average DPS for spec X across all players?"
Player Raid Achievements
This one is for all the recruiters and guild leaders out there. Find yourself poring through achievements on the armory for applicants to your guild trying to figure out if they got kills when they said they did? This is the easiest way to quickly see if a character got a raid kill when it actually mattered.
I'm always listening for new ideas for new tools or things to add to the current tools. Am I missing key class buffs or potential player failures in CompareBot? An achievement you want to see on the raid achievements page? Let me know - I usually respond to requests in a few days whenever I can.
For anyone paying attention, these are the same tools that lived on StratFu for the last year or so. I just finally managed to get them to their own domain and hosting.
