Have you checked out our new Discovery Leaderboards feature yet? We have three types of leaderboards available: guild, player and shard. Each of those has their own filters so you can widen or narrow your search as much as you want! (full story here) These leaderboards only track players with shard firsts, not every character ever created, so don't panic if your character with no discoveries isn't showing up. Smiley: nod

We'd love to hear your comments, thoughts, suggestions or brags about this new feature. Feel free to chime in, even if it's to just let us know that you like turtles and squirrel tears are the bomb. Smiley: grin

Woo, I have a shard first. A really dumb shard first admittedly.

I was literally 12 seconds away from a second shard first, though, as I was running to do the turnin and saw someone else get it :/

Any possibility of adding tools to allow me to post a particular list to my guild website by maintain the links back to ZAM.

I am preparing to write something that will parse the XMLs that Trion is providing. I would really prefer leveraging ZAM's talent as well as their nice tooltips.

Ohhh, nifty. Thanks! Wish I could see which of my firsts were actual world firsts though :P.

That's actually the next step, Datum. Whether that's a full "list" or a widget of sorts that links back to particular areas in our DB is something we're trying to decide.

Thanks for the response. You at least let me know that there is a possiblity. So, for the meantime, I will hold off.

Again, thanks!

I was really excited to check this out since I was really lucky and got the Shadetouched weapon cache, and after turning in the quest I got a shard first. But as I look through this list I am not on it. Found my boyfriend and his 4 green weapons that he got shard first for, but my cool quest and cool bow (Drake spine longbow) is not to be found =(. Did you not include this event perhaps?

Remember that the information in Zam's database comes from Trion's data dumps which I think they only do every couple of weeks (if that). So it's very likely that virtually nothing from the world event is in the database yet unless it was manually added

Not yet, but this is something that's on our leaderboard "to do" list.

I have found a bug.
Different Guilds Seen is a counter in which difficult guild 1 player have collected Shards/Worlds first.
But many people have getting their firsts without any guild so this no guild is marker as a guild and so we have one counter more...
it would be nice if you could patch it.
And i would like knew which worldfirstkills i have done (at your page i only see the shards first). You must only look how had the first (Datum) Shard first.

thanks

There should actually be a separate solo achievements counter, and the guild counter shouldn't be included 'solo' as a guild.

Data from the 22nd should be live. Is something missing?

Solo is not included in the guilds. I just glanced at the script, and it's excluding NULL, "", and "_NONE_" which is appropriate. Unless they added a non-guild guild to the data I didn't catch, it should be working as intended.

Does the leaderboard have every player after a DB dump, I have been playing Rift for a couple of weeks now and it would be cool to look up my character but I can not find it over the whole leaderboard. I there something I need to accomplish in game or something, maybe it is an updating problem?

You can find you in the Leaderboard only if you have done an shard first.
Zam get her DB from the Rift XML(where you see who have done the shard firsts).
This XML they convert and you can see the leaderboard.
So they dont have the chardata, only the shard first.
So do an shard first and you are in the Leaderboard.

How often is the leaderboard updated?
Is there a pattern to it?

It's updated whenever Trion releases new data.

I'm really happy that Leaderboards have been added and was a little embarrased that I only had 2 green firsts and it was because I carfted them, but is ZAM planning on setting up a Player lookup sorta thing. I would love to be able to look up players and see everything about them! For example I when I see someone just blasting through a dungeon and am curious why they can tank so well or do so much DPS I think it would be awesome if I could see their characters stats, armor and maybe even their soul tree on this website so you can do your research, compare your gear to theirs and even maybe even comment on their setups. Yes I do understand that it would be a little out of date because you only get your data when Trion does their data dumps... but I think it would still be cool!

Earlier I saw a ZAM moderator stating that the leaderboards were updated whenever Trion releases data, but now there have been at least 3 different updates to the database at ftp.trionsworlds.com and still no update? So, is this something you can only do every few weeks due to resource requirements?

Or did someone just forget?

As I understand it those updates didn't include Leaderboard data.

To clarify, the data we received was incomplete and did not include several servers.

Are you guys using the Rift_Dsicoveres_xxxx.ZIP found on ftp.trionworlds.com?

When I parsed the data (like today's 2011-5-9), I didn't see any servers missing but then again I don't know how exactly you parse it.

Regardless, I think we all appreciate your use / display of the data and are eagerly waiting for an update.

Any update?

Also will you be updating the DB to show the new stat changes to T2/T3 stuff? or is that purely user submitted mods?

Heya Sertain - we're still missing a couple servers from our data set, but we're working with Trion to get it resolved.

Okay! Our awesome devs have tweaked things internally and all the data that Trion has released is now in our Leaderboards. If your information is missing it's because it's absent from the data (sorry! They're working on it!).

So.... I saw all the data, then it appears to have rolled back some? or the calcs for leaderboards got botched? I went from 70 world firsts, to 150+, then back to 70...oddly. I still see the newish items in the database with myself listed as the first disco....but apparently it's not adding to my total?

Thoughts?

We had some data go wonky over the weekend, but it should all be fixed now. Can you link me specific places it's borked, please?

I might have accidentally rolled it back when I rolled back a couple of other things to fix an issue. It'll be fixed later on today. I'm waiting on the data Trion puts out today.

Trion provides data around noon PST (ish) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Depending on server load and such, I have to have it wait to parse until later at night. Data gets posted day of, leaderboards shortly after midnight (central) the next day unless I can squeeze it in sooner.
