I’ve put together a website that tracks tournament results and rankings:
The ranking system is the TrueSkill ranking algorithm, the same used in XBLA Halo 3, puzzle figher, and (presumably) ST: HDR when it comes out. You can find more detail about it at:
Please browse and let me know what you think. This is an alpha release, with functionality over form. There’s a few Japanese tournaments in there, this year’s Evo, and some local seattle tournaments as data.
I’m also aware that the top US players are not well represented. The reason for this is that we don’t have brackets for past Evos, or really, any data except Evo 2007. If there is interest in this, I will input data (if given) from prior Evos. If anyone has full brackets it would be very helpful. Non Evo data, such as SVGL or other local small tournaments is extremely helpful as well.
I can also easily extend this to other games, such as MvC2, CvS2, Tekken, GG… etc. But I’d like to get the community’s feedback. Specifically what would help me would be to answer the following questions
Is this ranking data interesting to you? Is there more data you’d like to see? Is it clear what “level” is? What about “mu” and “sigma”? Do you like the graph showing progression?
Are the tournament histories interesting? Should tournament data show more? Less? Is the full bracket confusing?
I’m aware that the layout is bare-bones and not styled, but is the flow of the website clear? Are there missing links? Is there info you’d like to see that you don’t see? Is it easy to get from one page of interest to another?
Do you like the historical match by match history of each player? Too much info? Not enough?
Thanks! I’m also interested in any data that you might have. It can be local data. Unlike the old Apex rankings, you don’t just “get points” for winning a tournament. So there isn’t the incentive to fake tournament results that there was in Apex. Just like in Halo 3… you can beat on your little sister all day but that won’t improve your ranking
