Nice, I wanted this when medal stats was first introduced
Will high scores ever show on the profile page?
It's possible, though they aren't currently recorded, so the best we could do is high score since implementation (i.e. if I implemented it today, it would show your high score from today on)
there is no way to data mine the historical games? maprank comes up with a high score so couldnt you do something similar?
We can data mine the old games, however some games are missing game logs due to a server mishap, so those couldn't be recovered. The problem with data mining in this large of a dataset with this many parameters (we'd have to mine for every user on the site), the amount of time and processing power required would be unrealistic. I'll keep looking into it to see what we can do.
you would only need to do it for active users, so accounting for about about 13,000 users or a total approximate game count of 13,000,000 (1,000 per user on average). I dont know that much about how long it would take to extract that data from the game logs, but i regularly extract 500,000k + records at my work and that only takes 5-10 minutes. Granted that software likely houses the data so it is easier to extract.
If you can get the username and points won/lost in time order in an excel file it is not hard to calculate a running tally and the maximum for each player.
I dont know how long it would take to do the data dump in excel very well but i think you are overestimating the time it would take to go back and calculate such each players high score. From there when players return you can calculate them on an individual, weekly or monthly basis to keep it up and running.
