It’s hard to believe this month marks four years that the EQ2 Census service has been in continuous operation. Over that time, there have been just a handful of EQ2 websites that use the service, including Roster Master, EQ2 Mission, Dragon’s Armory and our own EQ2U. However Daybreak’s generous offer of this data was always intended for anyone who was interested in data analysis, or the building of websites and mobile apps. By comparison, DCUO and PlanetSide 2 each have over a dozen websites and mobile apps leveraging this data.
Tomorrow, October 4th, I’ll be hosting a webcast on Twitch to walk through how Census works, how you can request EQ2 data, and what you can do with this data once you have it. In a future webcast, I’ll then go over how to create a simple website that pulls back EQ2 characters and guilds and displays a roster.
Keep in mind that this will be my first Twitch livestream so there may be a few hitches.
UPDATE: The livestream started on Sunday October 4th at 1:00pm PDT. That’s 4:00pm EDT, 23:00 BST, and Monday October 5th @ 0:00 CET. It concluded after 1 hour 10 minutes. Thank you very much to those who joined me for this livestream. We’ll be posting the video and PowerPoint very soon.
