InGame Status Bot: Antihack status, ELO, Ladder rank/wins etc..
« on: May 26, 2017, 12:43:47 PM »
Hello all,

I have made a status bot that returns information about players.

It is almost completely there are some minor issues to be decided so I brought this on the forum:

Bot Name: I suggest status or info (for the rest of the message I use status)
Available commands:

\m status me
Returns your ladder stats from page http://ladder.war2.ru
Also returns your current antihack status and in what channel/game you currently are.

\m status list
This is a very slow command and I suggest to not be used often. It returns selected information from http://server.war2.ru/status/ page

\m status game
This is similar with the list command but instead it returns the information for the users in your current GAME or channel.
This is very useful for hosts of games to check if the players have anti hack before starting.

\m status game [gamename]
This is like the above but you can state a game name.

\m status [playername]
This will return the ladder statistics of a player. Also it will return the ah status if player is online.

\m status help
Will give a short list of the commands

All information is returned at the form of private messages.
Antihack status is refreshed if 30 seconds have passed from last query. Which might make the response a bit slow.
Also antihack info might be upto 30 seconds old.

The responses are not 100% ensured :/ because of html errors but if you do not get a response you can retry.
In general it seems to be stable.

One problem I have seen it have is that it gets often the warning message for flooding.

Things that need to happen:
Decide on a name, please vote on the poll.
Get feedback for improving stuff.
Suggest renaming of commands/new commands.
@mousEtopher, Find a permanent host for it.

"Status" is so lifeless and mechical. The name should have some vibrancy and personability to it.

If you want it to still be semi-robotic sounding but with a battle flavor, how about something like "Intel"?

Alternatively, to suggest a benevolent presence, a fine anthropomorphic name, short for easy typing, could be given. Like Kane or Dante or Nixon or Lazarus. :)

How about Hermes? (The messenger god) or CIB central intelligence bot?
lol

I'm sure we can get creative on the name!

Hermes is too close to herpes. And there's already enough of that going around on the server.

And CIB is too close to CIBC (a big bank) and basically everyone hates banks and would rather keep their money under a mattress if only your employer would direct deposit it there.

and
lol

for now I have called it intel as status and hermes where taken :/
tonight I will be running it from home but I hope in the weekend it will find a more permanent house :D

I'm also considering of limiting the output as (for an unknown to me reason) it takes time to send messages

I can host it. how about /w intel [username] AH and /w intel [username] Elo to return that specific info. I know several players were interested in having in-game Elo available specifically & that might make it return a little quicker if they're checking a lot of people at once? at least it'd be 1 line only instead of 2. And likewise for AH check, hosts might be gaming w/ a few friends and want to check AH status on newcomers as they arrive, so faster to check an individual rather than the whole game at once.

overall looks & works great, you did a great job on it Igog! thanks for your hard work :D
