Hey guys, apologies for going dark for this week. I’ve had my head stuck into some dirty database work and my brain is melting out my ear. Before I go for a well deserved weekend, I’ll let you know what I’m up to…
Rankings for each eSport!
At the moment there is one global ranking list https://www.tipify.gg/tipsters/ then, if you click on a tipster, you see their profit, call count stats etc.
However, the major problem with this is that the profit is very misleading when a tipster crosses to a different esport, especially if a tipster has made 500 calls for CS:GO and a ton of profit, but lost every Dota game they’ve ever called.
So I’m currently rebuilding a lot of the backend of the site to ensure that we have a global ranking but also an eSport specific ranking (and all the stats to come along with it). So you can see a tipster is 2nd in CS:GO tips, but 1000th in Dota tips.
It’ll also mean tipsters can dabble with other eSports without ruining their performance stats.
So it’s been a lot of foundation work this week, but it’s all good stuff. But, this will lead the way for a ton of other updates which help ensure that you’re only following the tipsters worth listening to.
