This def deserves a sticky, but I think it best fits in the war room yea?Cool


DUST Charts is mainly Planetary Conquest data right now, because that is what the publicly available endpoint dictates, but the site has value for all players, not just those actively participating in Planetary Conquest. If nothing else, it serves to inform new players and those who are not in corporations that are active in PC and to help them understand why it's important and how it works. As soon as possible, the site will offer functionality more applicable to the average mercenary, so putting this thread in the War Room would be doing it a disservice.

Having the thread sticked in General Discussion will help introduce it to the player base at large and eventually, if it were to be stickied somewhere else, it may best fit in the Rookie Training Grounds with things like the Fitting tool and Skill planner.

I think what would have been A LOT more useful to the community is to see stats on which weapons/suits/module combinations earn most kills/wp/wins etc.

I am talking about useful application of statistics to make developers finally aware of how things that they have put in the game actually perform and whether they have intended effects. As opposed to being on a roller coster with endless random nerfs and buffs and never seem to accomplish much.

Since I find myself using this web page often. I was wanting to make a suggestion, is it possible to add who is doing the attacking on the recent activity box?

It would be great to see who is attacking themselves and locking their districts from where.

I don't think the CREST api tells you that.

This is why the New Eden community is the best gaming community, and why we should keep adding API's for you guys.

I have sent this by email as well, and I am also posting it here. I love the UI, but the data itself leaves something to be desired. I feel that it's critical that you show an unbiased and accurate view of the data.

Your corporations and alliances tabs are somewhat unfairly portraying a lot of groups. First of all, many of our alliances are much larger, but misrepresented because you don't bother to pull the alliance list from the API, and query for the details of all the corps in any given alliance. So your "Largest" Alliances thing is incorrect, as is the supposed "Greediest" Alliances.

On the "Greediest" Corps/Alliances topics, you're dissing corps for collecting 10% tax, even though that means that they're unable to support themselves on district income, and have to eek out a living on a paltry tax rate. If anything, the "Greediest Corps" are the ones sitting on 40-60 districts for no reason other than to farm them for literally a billion ISK a day. So I have to argue that this is extremely prejudiced.

Your "Bullied" Corporations/Alliances are actually the corporations and alliances using an exploitative game mechanic to lock their districts and avoid combat. Again, your system is putting the wrong people in the wrong light again.

The inherent problem to these displays, is you add loaded language to these dialogs, and they are in fact, incorrect. If you are unwilling to pull the alliance list, to accurately portray an alliance, you should not display alliance size info at all, since you are doing it incorrectly and incompletely. Do it right, or don't do it.

I have nothing to do with this site, but I'll try to answer your concerns anyway.

Valid complaint, although I think BGoat has chosen to only show corporations that holds districts. This site isn't about showing the biggest alliance overall, but rather about showing the alliances presence in PC. Therefore it is correct to only show an alliance's corporations that actually hold districts in PC.

This is his choice. The site is about PC and I think it's reasonable to only show corporations with districts. If you want to see all the corps in a given alliance you can use other sites (Dotlan etc I would guess).

I don't think he's "dissing" any corps here. He's just listing the corps with the highest tax rate and gives the column a fancy headline. Sure it could say "Corporations with the highest tax" instead, but I don't have a problem with a fancy headline.

Again, he's just listing the corps with the most districts under attack and gives the column a fancy headline. These are the corps with the most districts under attack whether they attack themselves or not.

As said above, he's not trying or wanting to list whole alliances, but merely the parts of alliances that hold districts. That's what the site is about.

I got a response from BGoat, the biggest issue is his availability to work on the site right now, which I fully understand.

But our alliance as a whole fights in PC, even though only a couple own districts. Not accounting for the entire alliance misrepresents our PC presence. The biggest issue here, is that in order to do this properly, once he pulls the alliance info, he then needs to use that to go back and grab info for all the other corporations. It's an extra step, but a necessary one.

Greediest and Bullied are prejudicial. As a neutral site, it's poor taste.

Parts of alliances don't hold districts. If only part of your alliance does PC, your alliance isn't really much of an alliance, because you aren't working together. If he wants to disregard alliances entirely, and just talk about corps, and what alliances they belong to, that's fine. But as soon as he has an alliance page that says "here's the sum total of alliance members", is when he's floated into shady ground. If he doesn't want to tally that info himself, rather than providing incomplete figures, he can link directly to Dotlan from his site. But incomplete information is misleading information.

It's a free service. Don't like it? Build your own. All this QQ'ing is pretty sad, have you tried counseling?

And let me also tell you this: any data used to generate information that can be consumed is biased.

Three lefts don't make a right. Unless you're two dimensional and only know right angles.
