Is there anyway to log a Battle as a League game in addition to the Tournament/ Friendly drop down? That way I can continue the tracking my other games and make the league cleaner?

Hi RT, no there isn't at the moment although it's something I could look into.

Can you elaborate and tell me exactly what you'd like to see please?

PS. I hadn't realised you had joined until now but I've now added you to the WFBattles forum members list (you get extra prestige on WFBattles and you get ranked in the Legendary tables - not sure if that's of any interest to you but it's always nice to be called a legend ;-) )

The site is missing Chaos Dwarfs as a faction. I can't report my CD matches until it's added so please add it.

Hi Maetco, adding Chaos Dwarfs is on my wish list but it's not an easy job I'm afraid because of the way i set up some of the queries and page code when I started development when I assumed there would only ever be 15 armies.

I'll take another look and work out exactly how much work is involved.

Thanks for posting the suggestion,
Sigmar

I really hope you can add the Chaos Dwarfs. I'm a huge fan of the faction and when I start having more time for WFB again I'll be most likely playing many matches with them.

Can you possibly increase the character cap for battle notes? I just did my first proper attempt to use that space and the 1500 characters felt very constrictive. Increasing the cap to 2000 would definitely help and 3000 would be more than enough, I think. I realize the notes aren't really meant to be a place for a proper battle report but the key reason for my WFBattles use is to have all of my matches (with notes/reports) in one place.

Thanks for the great site! Hope you'll find the time to keep improving it.

Hi Maetco,

I will increase the batrep notes character limit. I wasn't sure how much people would write and didn't want the notes to slow things down but I've been keeping an eye on the database performance and I think I should be able to double it to 3,000 characters.

I should have time to do it later this week.

I'm pleased you like the site, I have a few improvements to make, finding the time is the problem at the moment.

Thanks for the suggestion,
Sigmar

Ok, here's a suggestion, how about an battle summary that can be incorporated into a graphic image that can be used in forum sigs? I have been using one for my Wood Elves and I like it, unfortunately it seems to get hacked by Russian pornbots spammers so much I can't get updating it. It's called mybattlereport or something like that. If you scroll down to the bottom of my blog you will see what I mean. :D I will actually try to put it on my sig here and you will get the gist. As always thanks for all the work you've done already.

Good idea, I like it, thanks RLEG.

I think I have to create something called a WebService to request the data and return the graphic. It will be an interesting challenge to tackle.

Glad I can keep you busy :D . I was thinking something like this on the sig, only with a prettier layout. Plus I reckon it would bring more people to the site. Image

As the new End of Times books are coming out, there may be a few more possible armies (Undead Legions, rumour has it, High/Dark Elf Alliance and Warriors/Beastmen/Daemon Legions) is there any plans to incorporate these (and I suppose Chaos Dwarfs)?

Please no.........!

It's a bit of a nightmare adding armies to be frank. Having said that, if there really are more major changes inbound then I will need to incorporate them. So I may as well do the lot in one go - and try to make the database more "flexible" - gulp!

Not being very tech savvy as far as programming goes, I have no way of knowing how much of a pain it is. If its a complete rewrite then I don't expect you to give yourself hours and hours of work for a couple of people's benefits. That said if this end of times thing is going to be around for a long time, it may be worthwhile. Cheers anyway for combsidering

What I might do is add the new Alliances/Legions only to the ArmiesVs page for starters. If it's going to be an ongoing development and GW are bringing out more alliances and people are going to be playing them a lot then I guess I don't have a lot of choice and I'll need to incorporate them.

Thanks for the info Ratlizardelfguy, I haven't been keeping myself up-to-date with the GW rumour mill so I wasn't aware that other "alliances/legions" might be on the way.
