Default Research For Future 40k App

I've been tinkering with an idea for an online application for 40k players to use to record their victories, their defeats and their drawn games.

Now then, this application (dubbed the Battle Tracker) is in the works.

As a gamer, what would you guys want to be able to do as far as recording your games and what statistics and feedback would you want to see when it's ready for release.

So far, we have added in thusly (sorry no previews yet - but stay tuned):

Total Battles - The total number of battles fought
Total Points - The sum of all the points you have used in your games (including allies/enemies and yours).
Total Opponents - The number of enemy players you have fought against or with (yes, team games will be possible in this ;D).
Total Wins - The sum of all the wins.
Total Losses - The sum of all the losses you have suffered
Total Draws - Same as total wins/losses, except for draws :P
Win Percentage - The percentage of how many wins you have under your belt. An undefeated player will have a 100% Win %age, whereas a player who has never won will have a Win %age of 0%.
Average Points/Battle - An average of the points cost you have battled
Rank - This will be an indication of how well your doing in your games, and as you get more experience with your "Primary Army", you'll get different ranks given. For example, if you have over 500 games using say Dark Eldar as your army, you'll get the "Dracon" rank.

But it doesn't end there! In the fullness of time, it'll be integrated into the forums so you can see at a glance how a player is doing from within their profile. But that is a long time coming .

Anyway, feel free to suggest stuff for the Battle Tracker .

Armies that you play perhaps? Just an idea, but I think having one specific for a race or even a place to type in what armies you use would be nice to show WHAT you win with. There's a difference between an undefeated Eldar record and an undefeated Chaos Space Marine record, and I think that should be distinguished...

Again, just an idea.

Lol, it was funny since I was just working on something along those lines just a few minutes ago. If I can get my head around how best to do it, I'll be able to create something that creates a grid of armies, with how many wins you've achieved against X, Y and X and with what army.

Sounds like a great idea. I can't really think of anything at the moment, but sounds like it'd use PHP, which sounds right up my alley... if you want any help or whatnot, I've got nothing happening for the next 2 months.

Ah, you showed me this.

I just thought of another: how about how long you've been playing?

"Fragrate" Or in non FPS gamer words. How many games you win per games you loose. So 1 equals 1 win per 1 loss. 2 equals 2 wins per 1 loss and 0.5 equals 1 win every 2 losses. Simply put wins/losses.
Or k/d spread. How many kills/losses positive or negative. So if you have won 5 battles and lost 3, then you have +2.

But im in all the way^^

That sounds like a good suggestion actually. I'll add it in the next update
