OK, chances are that I am talking to myself as Arena has turned into a shitfest (especially for players like myself, the so-called 'bads' that are a target of derision and mockery even though we are probably far more handsome going off the RL pics of the majority of the sponsored players) and anyone who did find their way to this blog has likely given up when they saw it was dead for 6 months.
The issue with my previous data collection was that it was time consuming, boring (like Warlock Druid vs Warlock Druid, or DK+Pally vs DK + Pally boring) and all round too slow.
So, I had every intention of re-writing my code to be faster, sleeker and more informative. But I have been too lazy, partly due to work commitments, partly due to family and mainly cos I was getting bored of WoW. That said I am finally getting curious enough about the populations of s4 vs s5, rise of the DK/Pally and the fall of the lock to want to poke around a bit and find out more.
It wont happen overnight but over the next month or so I want to be providing more regular updates, and a more interactive way of looking at the data.
So if you still check in now and again I hope to have something soon(tm)!
