Casualty totals for defender and attacker? or both somehow combined?  I assume the former, but just checking.

I guess that the most important question (from our perspective) is reasonably simple:

Is there anyone out there - obviously having a working knowledge of xml data, server polling, stats etc - who is willing and able to use the limited-data tournament API key to produce a player-run tournament?

Cheers,

SC

EDIT:  For the purposes of this question, assume that the tournament API key will indicate whether the attacker or the defenders 'won' the engagement and that casualty totals (but not troop type) are included.

I would hope they wouldn't combined the Casualty totals. Because that would be very boring Tournament page.

@SC would the tournament API key  only show the casualty? Np SC i was very happy to do the first ever server wide player Tournament. I learn that my hosting was crappy and I needed a new one. I also learn some coding stuff to. I hope you guys learned some stuff to

SC - can you give me some figures on the network traffic for the tournament? I appreciate it depends a lot on the number of people taking part and how active each of them is but I'm trying to work out what type of hosting I would need to be able to offer a tournament - I do know that my current hosting would not be up to it but without some sort of idea on the needs I can't go any further.

As far as I understood from the original 'spec' (as such), you guys were looking for something like:

<outcome>
  <outcometype id=1>Attacker Victory</outcometype>
  <attackercasualties=123456>
  <defendercasualties=78>
</outcome>

... as it is my understanding that this is what was/is wanted.

I'm afraid I can't, Tensmoor.  We have no way of sensibly separating the "tournament" CPU/RAM/bandwidth requirement from the total used to run the game; as they all occupy the same logical server cluster.

I think koda and digioso - having run a tournament-only reporting server themselves - would have an infinitely better idea of what hardware and bandwidth is needed to run it sucessfully.

Regards,

SC

I had guessed as much this what it is going to look like.

Thanks for the reply SC. Asking was a longshot but as my mum used to say - if you don't ask you don't get Tongue

I'm currently in the process of sourcing and setting up a server to run tournaments from and will then (hopefully) be working with Digioso to install his software and get it configured. At the moment everything is very much up in the air but the idea is that eventually we will be able to offer a system where people will be able to set up and run their own tournaments from it.

What will the outcometype  show if the battle was a raid?

I was intending outcometype 

id = 1 "Attacker Victory"
id = 2 "Defender Victory"
id = 3 "No clear Victory" 

Where id = 3 would be suitable for raid.

Does that suit?  And yes, your sample is exactly what will be returned.
