two people asked me for help yesterday in their projects and considering I know both well, I accepted, so here’s the thing. First one is carramba66 – you might remember him from the veteran charity, he organized it. Now, he’s starting a Czech blog (sort of like a mutation of FTR along with original content) and needs help of more people with it. Here’s what he asked me to post (in Czech of course):
Český web WoT.cz nabírá spolupracovníky
Brzy bude spuštěn nový neoficiální web o World of Tanks – WoT.cz. Najdete na něm informace ze zákulisí i leaky z vývoje WoT, recenze tanků i komentované replaye nejlepších bitev, modifikace a články z historie válek.
Projekt vede carramba66, spolupráci přislíbili například akcido, Frost_DeatH, CatfoodCZ a další.
Chcete se přidat do týmu? Provozovatelé nabízejí spolupráci. Požadavky:
- dobrá znalost angličtiny (stačí písmem) – bez překladače!
- časová flexibilita
- všeobecná orientace v problematice World of Tanks
- alespoň lehce nadprůměrný skill
Zájemci o spolupráci pište na firstname.lastname@example.org
Second is Folterknecht from the WN8 team. As you know, ratings and such are well beyond my interest, when it comes to WoT, but I know Folterknecht, so here’s what he wanted posted:
The team that created the WN-Rating just released the first update for the expected stats of the WN8-Rating, as some of you already might have noticed.
These values are created with the help of the playerbase. Phalynx from vbaddict.net is allowing us to use his data base for our project.
During the recent update it became clear, that for certain rare tanks there isnt enough data to create correct expected stats. Therefore we had to use substitutes and values had to be tweaked by hand,
which isnt the most scientific approach.
That’s why we ‘re asking you to help as out by uploading your dossier files at vbaddict.net. We are especially interested in dossier files from players who have one or more rare tank. These tanks are for example:
- alpha and beta tester reward tanks like the M4A2E4 Sherman EU and NA beta tester got. For the RU server it was the KV-220
- tanks from the small, medium and big preorder packages – for EU/NA-Server: A32, Pz V/IV and M6A2E1
- Pz II Ausf J, BT-SV and other similar rare vehicles
If you dont have any of the above mentioned tanks in your garage or stats, your dossiers would still be usefull as a bigger database helps to increase the accuracy of the rating. Furthermore you can also take an indepth look
at you personal stats on vbaddict, which does a great job at visualizing them and providing information to you, which isnt usually available via your service record and sites like Noobmeter.com or WoTLabs.net.
Just to make it clear – the dossier files don’t contain any persoanl data beside your playername and stats. So you dont how to worry about your account password, creditcard number or shoe size getting public.
Here is a short explanation on how to upload your dossier.
Thanks for your help and to Silentstalker for publishing this.
