MAG Leaderboards

7 replies 870 views Edited Sep 26, 2012

After researching why the MAG leaderboards went down, I found that there was more then 1 website. The most popular site, currently redirects you to http://www.blog.mag.com But I found anotherweb site that supposedly kept leaderboards. Http://www.magleaderboards.com & I typed it in, & it redirected me to mittromney.com!!! Like...**bleep**... Atleast it wasn't an Obama website :smileyhappy:

Bwahahaha

 

tic2000 made that website, then he shut it down for some reason. He gave a reason, but it escapes me at the moment. I believe it had something to do with him not playing MAG anymore and it was getting pricey for a game that little people played. I could be wrong though.

 

Before it linked you to Romey's site (let's try to keep a political debate out of this thread), it brought you to a white screen with the words "Nothing to see here."

 

Of course, it use to give actual useful stats on everyone's character. This forum's history is full of people bringing up their stats using that website.

While everyone else was claiming to be mini-bosses of MAG, I was the actual final boss all along!

I had a stats site as well. We both pulled the same data, but made slightly different use of it. His was a daily snapshot, whereas mine was progressive - you could see points progression and stuff. Mine also looked like ass, whereas his went with a nice layout with AJAX functionality.

 

In the end, as we pulled down stats from the official zipper site - when that went down, so did the source of the data.

 

Zipper/Sony never provided an official API for this stuff - it was basically scraped page by page.

The work that both of you guys put into the sites was admirable and appreciated by everyone. It is really too bad that Sony pulled the datastream or else we'd still be using them now.

 

I even donated $5 to Tic for his site... first time I ever did that.
