Graph wise, I'm looking for:
Total team population
Total kills
Total killed

Also, may I request the option of automatically saving post game statistics to a text file somewhere? An option to load the statistics wouldn't be necessary. Excel should be able to graph the data easily. :P

There could be stats linked to the gamemode, like number of spawnpoints per time on domination, flags on blitzkrieg, statue possession on CTS and fuel on rocket riot. Don't know what to use for assault, though.

I've dug up an old image from the beta with my suggestions:

It was received pretty well back then but none of the developers seemed to eye it, hehe. Note that this was mostly designed with KotH in mind since that was the only game mode we had back then.

I still like the line graph. Specifically the data set C. How did you do that?!

Hah, the 'Longest lived Darwinian' and 'Shortest Lived Darwinian' Awards, How would you be able to Designate a single Darwinian out from the Thousands you'll likely have spawned in a game?

Awards, that was another thing I would've liked to see in MW Post game Stats.

This is why I love this company so much. They just released this game yesterday and they are already putting us to ease, letting us know whats going to be added that we've been asking for.

Hats off too IV again!

What about being able to start a new game at the conclusion of the last one, or 'play again'?

Could also try putting the endgame statistics in selectable tabs, that way you see the full thing without loosing any info.

I think the idea is '5 minutes and 30 seconds' rather than 'Bob' ;) I don't know how plausible that is within the current implementation, but I presume that's the concept.
And TGF, it doesn't matter how genuinely informative the stats are - they're just fun to look at. The population charts in Age of Empires were the best part! :)

    Lobby Chat
    Wait in Lobby until all Players ready
    Kick/Rename/Resigning Support
    Password Protected Servers
    Full Modding system (including map editor and transfer of maps between server and clients)
    Ability for connecting players to see Advanced Options
    Post-Game statistics
    Spectator Mode

Obviously we'll also be fixing the bugs which have been highlighted since the launch last night, but that should go without saying!
They are listed in no particular order, and no guarentees are made as to when they will be added, or in which order they'll be patched in, so keep that in mind when the entire lot doesn't show up in the first tiny patch.


incredible great..
your best!!

I don't know, I think I would've wanted to see a little Darwinian Named 'Bob' :lol: .

I was planning to buy this after playing the demo, but my friend who owns the game tells me there is no sort of Ally system where you can assign friendly teams and such. Will this be considered in the future as I know i'm not the only one who wants to see it in the game.

Your friend was partially wrong. Assault has only two sides, attackers and defenders, and depending on the map, each side has 1 or 2 players. Also, a few other modes allow co-op (aka team) play. Check the advanced options on the 4 player maps.
