Understanding WoL

Postby Fenrìr » Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:56 am

So, I'm not going to lie and say I look to rank every week. I like looking at my logs and comparing to other people in order to consistently improve each week. However, I've been noticing a trend lately in which my damage is good enough to rank, but for some reason, I'm not. I thought it might be something to do with active time, but even then, mine is generally higher in the area that I should be at.


So what all goes into the equation in order to determine if you rank or not?

Hard to tell without seeing the logs in question

1) Are multiple people logging your raids? You can only get ranked once. If so maybe you're looking at the "wrong" logs.
2) Sometimes it takes a while (though usually not more than an hour) for ranks to update.

No, it's only our RL that logs and these logs have been up for probably close to 8 hours.

Here's our Iron Qon for an example

Now, if I'm not mistaken, I should be ranked just above this fellow here:

Er.... why?
Code: Select all
Name               Amount        DPS        DPS(e)      Active Time
Vanagandrr   80569691   14.34%   186352.5   175533.5    432.4s  94.3%
Bublez       76308683   13.59%   198177.6   184767.2    385.1s  93.5%


He seems to have you beat in DPS, which is what WoL uses to rank. The fact that you did more damage is sort of irrelevant given that your kill was 50 seconds longer.

Gah...comparing wrong numbers against each other. I was looking at my DPS vs his DPS(e) which is what I think WoL actually looks at for ranking.

And yea, I know that damage done is irrelevant.
