  • Battle Feed is here

    The Battle Feed is a new way to follow your Clan- and Platoonmates! It gathers the Battles played by your Clan- and Platoonmates and presents in a timetime so you can always follow them and their Battles.

    In case you are not in a Clan with active vBAddict Members, and not teaming up in a Platoon, you will see some Battles pre-selected by the same mechanism which is already pre-selecting Replays for the Replay at vBAddict.

    Support for following Gamers not in your Clan and Platoons will be introduced in few days. You will get a possibility to Follow/Unfollow from the Profile of a Gamer, subscribing to his Battles.

    This is the first step of my steps into a "Social WoT". The next step will include possibility to comment a game together with the community.
    In future, I will also include activity on Forum and Project Tracker to the Feed as well.

      That looks like fun. I'll mention it in the clan forum and see if we can get some more dingers using the system.

      However I think you can play around with the comments. For this battle your comment was "VeryRisky had a nice run on Steppes with Pershing" while it might have been more fun to say VeryRisky went broke on Steppes with Pershing (as I had 65k ammo cost and it was a loss)!

      Update!
      You are now able to follow a Gamer. There is also a number of followers showing how "famous" someone is.

      Additionally, the Battle Feed is now showing the Gamers you are following, and if you have less than five Gamers you are following, vBAddict is suggesting you some people.

      @VeryRisky, will add that.

      I personally would prefer to see only the players which I am following in the battlefeed,
      so it would be nice to have an oppertunity to check or uncheck what should be listed.
      Nice feature though

      I will create a suggestions ticket with some ideas for this, but I'm still thinking about it. For myself and probably my clan I'm like this to not just pick out the "big" games but the funny, silly and tragic cases too.

      Certainly DeathReason=5 could mean "Very Risky went swimming on Malinkova with his Chaffee". I'm thinking of others. Also a Win in Standard mode with a battle time of >14 mins could be "Left it late" (perhaps only if they survived). Perhaps something where distance covered is very high, etc....

      Makes sense, will implement it.

      This is the relevant JSON to process the headlines, take it for inspiration for your suggestions. First serves first, according to priority (higher=better). If nothing is selected, the other takes place.

      Commenting is now enabled. I will extend the Battle Report to show and leave new messages for that battle.

      I would like to suggest, regarding the battlefeed section, it might be nice to see an icon whether there is a replay available in addition to the listed battle-stats.
      Also interesting, I think, would be the players overall WN8-rating, both in the battlefeed-section and in all Replay-Sections like Featured Replays etc,
      to distinguish replays between players who might have had just a lucky run and players who probably know what they were doing in general.

      Would like, atleast as option, to see what of your own games are seen in others feed.
