I'd love to see Census give out some details on who is in the various Battlegrounds and when.

Are the same 60s in the same 'Grounds all the time? Are there lots of 40-49 games going on Saturdays? These kinds of metrics can very easily be gathered, I think, with Census+.

I know you can't do census while in the battleground, but I thought I saw rollie say that he figured out a few months ago how to capture that who was in the battlegrounds.

All is not as it appears =)

A spam post bumped it first. Then Hyb posted to not click the spam link. Then the spam post was deleted which made it look like Hyb bumped it. Then Wyr posted. Then I deleted Hyb's post which now makes it look like Wyr bumped it =x

10x? Here it goes:

aspampostbumped it.. posted.. spamlink... spampostdeletedHybbumped.. bump..spambumppp.. bump bumptedyspam bumpd .. Wyr bumped it =x

whatever...

I think this is a valid question.

When you do a census, the who command gives a location for each player that it finds. Yet, this is thrown away by the time the addon writes your .lua file.

It would certainly be possible to show a graph saying how many characters are in Swamp of Sorrows, Mulgore, Deeprun Tram, Maradon, Warsong Gulch, etc... But, it might be a litlte messy to show, and would probably add considerable size to the .lua file. But, i'd be interested in seeing at least Kalimdor / Eastern kingdoms / Instance / Major Cities / BG breakdown.

And, of course, seeing "WSG 20-29" (for example) graphed over the different times of day would be very useful.

Haha lol nice one, Rollie speaks the truth tho Smile. I have been working on something like uigrad suggested altho it uses coords instead of just plain stats per zone. (Not done tho and something completely different Razz.)

Rollie: If you need all maps of WoW (except instance ones) gimmy a poke I got them all plain and no text or bullshit on it Smile.

While it would be fun to see, the amount of data that would add makes my db weep even more than it's crying right now =x

I have added some stuff for battleground tracking, but alas, I haven't added it to the site yet.

Wyri never checks post of posts Razz, when someone else posted a reply just before. Except when searching. ^^!

Don't care about specific information, you know the level range of the BG by the users level. I just want to see a graph of Race/Class population per server/battlegroup seperated by BG level range. Anyone want to guess on the rarest PvP class/race?

My guess is Troll and Priest
