Based upon some feedback I’ve received over the course of the current GWTW Warhammer 40K league I’ve made some minor improvements to how battle results are reported. It’s still done using the “Operations” page of the league but now there’s a handy list of your open matches and four buttons: Win, Loss, Draw, Forfeit. I think this’ll be easier to use from two perspectives: First is that it’s more mobile friendly. Second, I think it’s a tad more intuitive. It’ll also be cleaner when I get around to putting the round robin league format into play.
Oh yeah! Speaking of the forfeit button. There is one now. I kind of overlooked that last release (it was there but it wasn’t visible) and now it is. So if you run into a situation where you can’t play your opponent (and it’s your fault) you can easily click the forfeit button and it’ll process the score cards for you and your opponent. Neat, eh?
For you Event manager folks, I corrected the missing management page on various types of events. Gotta tell you, this was driving me batty. I also corrected some of the formatting of bullet lists so that they don’t scootch over to the left quite so far anymore. Huge win for authoring as well as some other spots where there’s lists (like the panel on club pages where you create new content).
So. With all that there’s one other major thing on the League Manager that I need to address and that’s what happens when a player submits a battle and they’re recorded as player 2. Unfortunately, I was using some legacy code from the old league manager and it only required a single player to report their battle and then it would generate everything. I thought it might be a good idea to have both players report their results. I was wrong. What I’m going to do is remove the stupidhead form for reporting battles (because the button is way better) and change the code so that only one player needs to report their battle results and then the battle will be generated and acknowledged.
I’m also going to do some improvements to the messaging system so that when players forfeit or report their battle it’ll message their opponent.
Whew. Anything else I’m missing in the league manager? Improvements? Suggestions? You can post them in the comments, send me a PM or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I aim to please.
