Black Friday? 2018-05-21

What's that you say?
Black Friday is in the fall, in November, and we're in May right now?
Also, today's not Friday?

True.
But we want to celebrate our first anniversary since the launch of the Plus upgrade, so this is our Black Unfriday offer: only today, everything you can buy on rankade is available with an additional discount (up to 60% off their full price for Plus groups, and up to 75% off their full price for Supporter users) - on everything from new upgrades (which you can enable from here), to renewals, to extensions to what you already bought (which you can enable from here).

In one year, the list of new features exclusive to Plus groups has grown quite longer. We keep on working to offer you an ever richer and more complete system, and we keep needing your support for that (if you can spare five minutes, read here: nothing much has changed since we first posted that).

Thanks again to all who support and keep supporting us, thanks to all who're starting today, and see you soon with our next releases.

Happy Black Unfriday!

Stats and facts 2018-04-26

It's done.
After a long process of development, implementation and testing, here comes the new 'Stats and facts' area, a new addition to the lineup of exclusive Plus features.
We're really proud of it.

To access the new area, just click on the red multifunctional floating button (bottom right). After opening the modal window, you'll be able to browse though all five available blocks, each with several items.

These are the stats we implemented:

  • Best/worst stats, including max/min ree in group history, best player/pair by win percentage, wildest mismatch, best/worst matchup for each player.
  • All pair matchup stats, to evaluate the performances of pairs in 2-vs-2 challenges and in matches with teams of several players.
  • Current streak stats for player, matchup, pair, pair matchup.
  • Highest/lowest ree stats for each group member.
  • Last win/loss stats for player, matchup, pair, pair matchup.
  • And more!

All stats are available for all players and for each subset within the group, including yearly subsets, automated weight-based subsets and custom subsets. An example: for a 20-player Table Football group with ten subsets, the 'Stats and facts' window can have over 5,000,000 (yep, that's five million) different outputs, always up-to-date with every match you enter.

All members of the Plus group have unlimited access to these queries.

Moreover, all outputs can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, or the group's chat with a single click. A chance you don't want to miss to brag about your high scores and winning streaks, to shake your head in disbelief when you're down in the dumps, to share with your nemesis the challenging nature of your love-hate-win-lose relationship, to take a walk on memory lane and remember the good old days or your old shames, to celebrate the affinities with your best mate or the win you never expected to bag.

And what if you're not in a Plus group?
You can still access the 'Stats and facts' window ant test some of the features. And then... well, the best idea would probably be upgrading your group to Plus, unlock unlimited access for you and all other members and give your much needed contribution to rankade, so we can keep on working and making our system better, adding new features like we just did this time around.

We still need your support, the present and future of rankade depend on you. As always, thanks to all who gave us their kind support.

And, as always, happy gaming!

Just a hint 2018-01-19

Our system has detected that some groups are recording matches in a different group with the same name as a previous group, with the year appended (e.g. 'My group 2018'), and the same players.

We would like to inform you that - for Plus group - a new feature (Yearly autosubsets) is available with which rankade is able to automatically create subsets for matches played in each calendar year.

Therefore, we suggest you keep recording your matches in your original group, so that you can keep collecting statistical data, enjoying your new year ranking without losing the global ranking (with all-time stats, belts, badges, activites). Both rankings (global and yearly) will be updated after every match. You can easily switch rankings in all widgets.

Also, please remember that admins can always edit or delete previously recorded matches (adding, removing, or exchanging players, changing parameters, etc).

Yearly autosubsets 2018-01-05

A new feature for Plus groups!

Yearly rankings are the aggregated standings from subsets of matches within the group, including all matches played during a calendar year.

Now is the time to draw up a balance of the year that just ended! The 2017 subset (and the subsets for all previous years, if any) will be built and processed for all Plus groups (both existing and future upgrades) in a few days, as soon as a sizable number of match is recorded in 2018 (check 'Games and subsets' widget).

Of course, each subset has its own ranking, graph, and stats.

Therefore, we suggest you keep recording your matches in your original group, so that you can keep collecting statistical data, enjoying your new year ranking without losing the global ranking (with all-time stats, belts, badges, activites). Both rankings (global and yearly) will be updated after every match. You can easily switch rankings in all widgets.

Also, please remember that admins can always edit or delete previously recorded matches (adding, removing, or exchanging players, changing parameters, etc).

Quick form 2018-01-02

Welcome back.

After a preview launch to selected groups (thanks for your most useful feedback, by the way!), coming into the new year we're making available to everyone the Quick form for entering 1-on-1 or 2-on-2 matches.

Our new form will be available along with its predecessor, now called Full form, without replacing it. The system will automatically default to the form which better fits your group's characteristics, though of course you can always switch between the two.

Happy new year, and happy gaming!
