  • vBAddict 2.0 is now Live

    After several Weeks of hard work I can today announce the immediatly release of the new vBAddict 2.0!

    This is a major update, consisting of a new style and layout and a new way of handling. The old links are staying the same, some are new.

    You may ask, what changed? Easier to answer what did not changed. All parts of the GUI and most of the underlying programs and scripts were modifed or reworked. For example, the "Progress based on Battle Results" has been moved to a dedicated page.

    What have been added?
    - Crew. Listing the Crew of your tanks and their Skills/Perks. More advanced analysis is already in work, also the required Experience to advance to the next percent or skill will be added soon.
    - Replays. The new Replay module makes the thousands of replays uploaded to vBAddict more visible for all.
    - Personal Replays. Finally every user has the possibility to view his uploaded Replays. With that module you can also check which Battle Result and therefore a Battle in Progress is missing.
    - Heatmaps. for Tank Classes. See where light tanks are spotting and TD's camping.

    Still, there is a lot of new stuff coming the next weeks, still not all modules are styled 100% perfect. But as a one-man-show this needs to be released, as until then all other changes have to wait. I don't have the time to do every change in both systems. Now I can push my energy only in one directions. Updates and new stuff will be done faster again.

    The Forum, Blog & News and the Tracker will keep their own style. It's not that easy to change the style of vBulletin without having compromises - which I didn't wanted. If the time allows it, I will take care of this again.

    Thanks for all Beta participants for their valueable feedback!

    Please report Bugs and Requests only in the Tracker - thanks.

      Functionality is perfect, just colours are to soft (pastel?), good idea to add few colours schemas ?

      It's always in the beginning, I also needed my time to get used to it. Now I won't missed it anymore. Come back to this post in few weeks and tell me your opinion then

      I really liked your tool before. It was lean, compact and I got a quick overview about what I wanted to know. And now: I have to klick through more menues to see the data. And the tables are bigger without additonal information. The access was easier before, it is a pity that you changed it to a less comfortable version.

      Sure, it was compact, as the width was fixed. Now the width takes the full screen, resulting from this all tables are bigger. I'm now more flexible regarding options and layout.

      The old layout was in the end a patchwork, initially started with a limited set of features. Later expanded to the rich features we have now.
      It was really difficult for me to maintain it. Produced more queries as many parts of the website were loaded into one page, even if the user just wanted to look for one information.

      It is like with every change - some like it, some not. I cannot satisfy all.

      I don't get these changes, you have now basically regressed. You went from a compact easy one page overview of personal stats 12h/24/7d ect and tank stats on the left, to a bunch of tabs which you have to go through to find information that was previously all on one page. Also, this looks like I'm using an apple product page, wtf.

      I understand that you worked hard on this, but I am not a fan, I loved your old site layout, and while it might have not looked the greatest, it was extremely efficient (visually). Thank God you didn't change the ADU.

      What page are you speaking about? Progress on your personal statistics were moved from the main personal page as the informations were mixed with the Skillradar and WN7 / WN8 charts - which changed only once in 24h. So I don't see a benefit in old layout.

      Probably the old tank overview on the left side was a good hook for jumping further, but still there are some people complaining they cannot search for tanks or sort by their basic stats - which is now possible. Did you tried already to expand the visible amount of tanks to for example 100?

      And btw, previously the links to the different dated charts were the same - exactly like it is working now, but now the links are displayed as tabs.

      I would love a quick white text (or light text) on black background. Design looks good but the white background is hard on the eyes with this much data to look at.

      Whoa! this is a nice improvement! nice work!

      although, I found one bug.
      In battlelog (1st battle), i have red wrench in every battle and "alt" text says that: "Tank didn't survive this Battle." Although it did. It can be seen on Detail page.

      i have to agree. before we had all information on first page and in a much more compact form. i opend my profile page, i had all data i wanted like this nice progress table. now when i go into my profile summary page i see the "feeds" and "skill radar" and "WN charts", that are not interesting at all for a daily basis. i would rather like to see the compact small progress table again THAT FITS ON ONE PAGE. You changed all line spacing to some odd hard readable values so everything gets inflated very much. now the table after some clicks can be found again but is so huge i have to scroll down 2 pages and lose line or colum. Usability of the design isnt good at all.

      You put great effort into this and i really appreciate your project (already have dontated to you) but your new multi structured design is more complicated, confusing and dont put most important information on top.

      please make everything smaller again. more compact. i doesnt have to be all full screen. and make please a real overview like before where actual data is in first page when i open my profile page like before.
