How are we going on the release of stats for the tourney or the data file to assess the information ourselves?

What we're wondering is...

How would the tournament participants feel about a full or semi-full data set that you yourselves could analyse...?

We're talking a dump of each and every combat during the tournies, all participants and casualties etc.  Think of it as an entire XML dataset (we'd probably release it as flat files for download expediency!) of the full system logs for any combat on tournament squares during the tournie.

This would let everyone cut the data anyway they liked.  We're totally willing to accept anonymisation etc, though we equally accept that the granularity of that could also be compromised by other data sources that we do make public.

ofc, we're still happy to produce the tournie aggregate data ourselves as well, or indeed some hybrid where we aggregate data by some variables that largely anonymise data (eg by day, by attacker/defender, by unit type lost etc, but leaving out players and alliances.)

I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this?  (And I'm sure you do!)

Please pitch in here...!

Can we get an update:  I have a unassigned petition from May 1st submitted at the request of Luna plus there was a good amount of input in this thread.

I agree with others who have pointed out this tourney required alliance coordination and we have many members who did NOT earn a medal but were helping the alliance on multiple squares.    While the least favorite of all the tourneys so far, I did have a great time coordinating with my fellow alliance mates, the last day was both thrilling and a nail bitter  (kudos to Crows again).    I'd rather give up my individual medal in favor of the alliance medals that go to all members in H.     We won as a team, not as individuals.

Rill thats what Audrey feeding is for.  

I agree with the sentiment it could have been more alliance focused.  Randomness was bad as well.

Hoping the next tournament won't be a repeat king of the hill.

I thought the purpose of the tournament was to relieve me of my excess troops so I was no longer suffering from negative gold.  And it accomplished that very well!

I agree with KP - feel free to revoke my medals if it means anything to you - I had fun and thats what matters to me :)

I mentioned it several times that this tourney was a modified Prisoner's Dilemma scenario.

I have to agree with the previous two posts. In the rules of the tournament it states;
 
"The devious-minded might suspect that the tournament has been set up this way to reward alliances who can cooperate and organize themselves well, rather than just those with a few huge players."

If this is the case and alliance cooperation was needed why is there not a medal for the first 3 alliances' player that participated. What actually did happen was essentially the reverse with those "few huge players" the ones that ended up with the most medals, off the top of my head

- DD89              10
-Ditto                 9
- Empress olivia    9
Though this is good for the players, the rest of the alliance (in this case H? and Crow), provided the troop support throughout the tourney for these players to be able to get their medals for that achievement. To me the individual medals nullify's the great support shown by the top 3 alliances players by them contributing a lot of the work for no reward. What makes the lack of a medal harder to swallow is the pretense that this tourney was all about alliance teamwork and coordination yet only individuals were rewarded.  The amount of effort that went into the tourney by all was astronomical due to the tourney mechanics and to not see that hard work rewarded for all in those top 3 alliances is a little disappointing, especially considering how close the tourney was for first and third positions.
