If you check out the TEAM cb info you gonna see at the bottom the current season stats about all matches these 2 clans had during the season and overall. Information contains cbs played, cbs won, ratio and the current streak. The shown data is always live season data not the stats at the moment of the cb.
Last but not least the points you gained for the overall ladder are also shown in the cb info now.
today I have uploaded a bunch of updates for you to check out.
The team ranking module is now working(at least for all team ladders with elo ranking)
You can now remove yourself from any clan you have signed up
Admins can now manage any clan
You can browse beyond the 5 most recent cbs on the clanbattles page
All cbs of a ladder and season are now also shown on the ranking pages
The cb info pages have been reworked slightly(I'm still not completely satisfied with the layout, but that's a low low priority)
Limitations of the updates:
Autoconfirm hasn't been added yet
Recent cbs and cbs you have to submit haven't been added to the clan/user pages yet
In Safari the Go to page input field doesn't work anymore with newer Safari versions(2+). The window.location.href function is messed up. I'll try a workaround later.FIXED 16.3.2009
Behaviour of new updates:
Although it doesn't force you always the winner should submit the cb, because always the loser has to confirm the cb. In daily usage this should be no big deal
Contrary to the *DBL 1.0 when a clan has rejected the cb, and the issue has been solved without any admin involvment they can accept the cb although status is on pending by admin
I'm not sure how we handled that in the *DBL 1.0 but as soon as a cb gets submitted(not yet approved) the ranking pages will be updated. Is this behaviour ok with you?
As long as the cb is on pending the poster can edit the cb. As soon as a cb is submitted only admins can edit/delete cbs.
To keep it simple and to save a lot of hassle you can only change the score of a cb after submission. The submitted players and substitutions aren't editable. Further you can't change winner and losers afterwards. In these cases you have to delete the cb and resubmit. Depending on the amount of wrong player submissions maybe I'll add this later.
THE OVERALL LADDER:
Although they have already been included for the HS and COOP ladders there are something on their own for TEAM and FFA cbs: Overall ladders give you a combined ranking of all your successes. It's like a yearly worldchampionship ranking. No matter if you play an ELO ranked season or a tournament. You will always gain points. For the first season the rankings might be ident(depending on the chosen ranking) but after that it will be an interesting addition because it includes much more cbs to compare and rate your performance. Last but not least you don't have to enter your cbs twice. The score will be calculated and submitted in the background. Another cool thing is that the overall season is always open so if there is no open season or you missed the registration you can still play a cb and submit it just to the overall ladder.
Alright that's it for tonight. Last but not least only 794 lines to go until I reach the 30.000th line of code(or 340+ printed A4 pages), hip hip hooray and my eyes fall to sleep!
I just want to point out that some thing behave differently than you might be used to it:
When a name is shown in green - it indicates that the person is online. Admins or Moderators aren't highlighted in any way yet. I'll add this later.
Before you can join a ladder you have to go to the Games page and tag all games you are playing. I have added this so it is easier for you to manage bigger clans and it also avoids that people show up in roster selections that don't play this game. For the single player I have thought about showing all ladders and whenever you sign up to one you will be added to the game list, but once there are a lot of games it would become a mess so I decided to make it as it is now.
Beside that if you want to join a clan ladder you have to create a roster first.
For ranking pages: if the rank appears in green it went up, red means the clan went down and blue means it is a new entry.
Another thing that changed for admins: to make a ladder people can join you have to create a ladder, then a season and finally in the last step add ladder season settings.
Btw of course you are invited to post wherever you want. Just try everything out. Create fake clans, post cbs(TEAM and FFA aren't working yet), post new rules, add/invite members, create ladder roster, submit fake cb results, upload proof screenshots, just play around.
If you haven't noticed it yet: if you submit a reply you can use the normal apple commands, if a keyboard command is available e.g. "apple+b" command for bold, instead of alt or ctrl as many other forums require.
Finally the *DBL is back on track. Before you take a look around please always remember this is a PREVIEW version with uncompleted code and features.
E.g. this start page is of course not the final main page. I just put it together in a few minutes so you aren't greeted by an empty page. My focus right now is to finish the team ranking module. Also I haven't fully tested the script on the server so you might experience some blank pages with mysterious messages ;-) All bugs you experience should be posted in the *DBL Forum or just here as a comment.
Please also note that for the public release I gonna empty and reset the database so your accounts and posts will be deleted.
For testing purposes I have also added a test admin account with full admin privileges. Please don't delete this account as well as mine.
The access code is:
Alright I'm sure you are waiting that I send you the link to the preview so I'll post more notes here later.
