It is now official that EQ-Raiders will be hosting a brand new Raid Guild Progression website.
This new website will have both manual kill submissions (For guilds that fall out of the realm of accurate auto-updaters) as well as automated kill verification updates through a unique RaidHub interface being created by Mecrab, the author of RaidHub. The website is being designed and coded by Mecrab and should be launching this weekend. RaidHub will not be required by any means but with the added capabilities and the already large amount of guilds that utilize RaidHub, it only seemed natural to make that the platform of choice. The website will also take full advantage of kill verifications with the upcoming new SOE Data Feeds that feature guild kill updates as well.
Some features of note:
- Utilizing Raidhub will allow “Kill Time” to play a factor in how a guild is ranked. If Guild A kills one Mob in 5 minutes while Guild B kills it in 6 minutes on the exact same day, well Guild A gets a higher ranking. There will also be leaderboards in the future that will rank guilds based on how long it took them to kill a certain encounter. Yes, even more bragging rights for your endgame raiding guild. Of course, these trophies will only be handed out during the period in which the content is relevant.
- Gone are the days of constant disputes. By utilizing a system that can only have a kill disputed once, ever, a guild can be rest assured that their kills will not be voted down once an administrator verifies the kill. If a kill is also confirmed by either Raidhub or the upcoming SOE Data feeds the kill automatically can not be disputed.
- The new progression website utilizes a standard scoring system used by many progression based websites which allows for a greater level of accuracy based on when content was cleared. This will put guilds closer together that kill content in bunches and seperates the guilds that kill content weeks after the first guilds cleared the content.
- In the future Guild Trophies will be generated to place on your guilds’ website. Things like banners of content cleared, records on kill time..ect.ect.
There will be more announcements to follow when the final details are put in place but be ready this coming weekend to start comparing yourselves once again to the whole of the EQ2 raiding community!!
