WAR Rank Beta 2

I'm happy to say that one of my projects, WAR Rank, is ready to be tested by a larger group of people.  What is WAR Rank?  It is a scenario ranking and record keeping system for Warhammer Online.  Players use an add-on to save scenario results, then upload them to the website.

For ranking performance, an ELO system is used.  I've also added a bonus system which can give players and teams extra points if they perform particularly well.

To get started, head on over to and sign in.  At that point, you should see a link to download the add-on.  Install and enable it as you would any other WAR add-on.  When you are finished playing go back to the WAR Rank website and upload the file, which is called ArsenalRank.log in your logs directory.

Notes:  When you start WAR, the log file will be cleared.  If you quit WAR by killing the process, or use the X button to quit (windowed mode) the file may also be cleared.

WAR rank is still in beta, so the database will eventually be wiped.  I will also be fiddling with it behind the scenes as the need arises.

Please let me know of any problems you encounter or ideas you have.  Thanks!
