Recently, I was thinking about how to make use of the data at the HellGround boss fights page.
The page above lists all boss slains that occur in 25-man instances of tier 4—6 on the HellGround server. But the page itself allows you neither to draw any conclusions about the state of server’s PvE nor to compare the guilds involved. I decided to change it and that’s why I created the Guild Stats webpage.
The website features PvE guild ranking that is refreshed every Wednesday with the server’s data. You can compare guilds by their “guild score” obtained in the previous raid week or by monthly average. The information about per-tier and overall count of bosses slain is also present for comparison. If you select a specific guild from the list, you will get a detailed report of guild’s activity. You can see the guild and tier score trends on a monthly basis, too.
Guild ranking features 3 statistics:
- Guild score
- Boss-weighted count of bosses slain. The weights are described below.
- Tier score
- Per-tier counts of slains. Consists of 3 numbers representing tier 4—6 performance respectively.
- Kill score
- Simply the overall number of bosses slain. The number that the tier score adds up to.
Guild score is the most interesting factor being calculated, as it measures the guild’s overall performance in given raid week. It is simply a sum of points assigned to specific bosses, with tier 6 bosses being the most awarding and tier 4 — the least. Have a look at the weights below.
