arcadiaIt depends sort of. The method servers to illustrate the larger trends, as its hard to exactly make everyone perfectly next to every person they share logs with. The generation is randomly seeded so you can get shuffled next to lots of random people but on the whole the grouping will always trend the same way

Yeah makes sense, can see some general trends. Anyways nice work!

How do I not know like 95% of the AU players. Have I really been out of the scene for that long?

I have reason to believe this data is inaccurate, Cadet has more logs this year than me which is false. Also why is my name on here an alias I had like 6 months ago

To all the people asking about why their name is weird:
Afaik arcade is using my api to get player names (from demoticks.tf) and it gets the player names in the following order:
etf2l, ozfortress and then logs.tf. Rgl killed their api a while ago and ugc never had one to begin with and was giving me some issues.
I do have a solution for them (which isn't online rn) so if arcade want's to he could just rerun the name fetching and it should be a lot more accurate.
Edit: rgl uses cloudflare protection stuff so there isn't a easy way to request things automatically via the website without some more complicated workarounds

does the position you're in get affected just by the unique connections you have? not sure if it does this already but it would be cool if it biased where you're positioned by the number of logs shared with people around you

I played one weekend cup and rang like 2 nights for yosh team and am solidly in the group with other invite people despite having played advanced scout for the last like 2 months (maybe there is a way to more heavily weigh playing on the same team as someone, would be cool to see clusters of teams that get put close to other teams they scrim a lot for example)

Sorry for not responding to everyone who posted IDs, I was getting some much needed sleep and will look you up later this afternoon.

It seems like the common threads of issues are as follows:

  1. not interactive/hard to find players
  2. names are from either from first log of 2021 or from demoticks.tf API which may produce the same result
  3. the grouping are not as optimal as I think they should be. You get nice trends but in general the strongest gravitational force seems to be that large nodes that have a lot of shared logs attract each other very strongly. This skews the graph and seems to leave smaller nodes in suboptimal positions.
  4. alfredodanI have reason to believe this data is inaccurate, Cadet has more logs this year than me which is false. Also why is my name on here an alias I had like 6 months ago I believe the only limitation in this regard is that I am missing the last couple of weeks of logs because kastaling hasn't downloaded them yet.


So in summary, I plan to address these issues and a few more in a future version. Probably next weekend.
I'm going to try out smaller and larger datasets as well and see how that affects the outcome as well. (Especially once the season is over I can use an RGL S6 Dataset, eventually could filter by division)
In addition going to try out some different software and see if I can find some more effective layout algorithms

Please don't scrape RGL, I think I already set the record for what not to do, and I was trying to be conservative.

If you need RGL data, bug sigafoo until he can create one or have someone else create one for him. They clearly don't want us to scrape, and I think going around that would not end well.
