It seems that IGN has resolve the Query Limiting problem I was having with their systems (as you will note the queue is now down to less than 100 people.)

However, there's a slight hitch.

When I update your stats, I pull down 1) the raw stats and 2) the ranking stats. Now, the raw stats are fast and easy. 0.2 seconds or so of processing for a single player. However, because the ranking data is a wee bit more complicated (on EA/IGN's end) it can take up to 30 seconds to get a hit back from them. This means that queue times go up.

So, I have to make a decision, do I keep the ranking data incorporated and risk the slower updates, or do I dump it for the time being and revel in the fact that about 2 minutes after your 4 hours has waited you'll have an update?

(As it is, I'm going to leave the queue engine running 5 updating threads over night with ranking pull enabled to see how it does. I suppoes if it does a decent job and stays under 100 people in queue than this whole post is moot. )

Keep the rankings in, make people queue. I'm used to hitting this site just to get in queue once I finish off my last BF2 game for the night, and when I wake up, its updated

What exactly is the difference between the raw stats and the 'ranking' stats?

Personally I would still like those faster updates (without ranking data), maybe because I'm not very good in a spesific stat I would like to follow.

Because I'm a moron and I've been reading too many bashing Chuy on update speed threads and so my gut reaction to a comment on update speeds was to refer them to the other main update speed thread and get snippy. Chalk it up to me not being observant and brain farting. Sorry about that.

Wowww, I was surprised to see my stats already processed this morning...

And I say keep the ranking, it's a nice feature and the waiting is OK for me.

I say make a priority-based queue where stats updates have higher priority than ranking updates, and limit ranking updates to 1 per day per pid.

Well, after clearing out the queue (just ran it down from 40,000 waiting people last night) with the ranking off, I let it run last night with the ranking on and 5 threads running. The queue is now back up to 3000 and growing.

Looks like the wait persists as long as I leave the ranking data on. I am hoping the IGN will optimize that query *a whole bunch* and this will be pointless. In the mean time, I'll start a few more threads of the update engine and see how that works out.

Ugh, I'm too lazy to throw together two queues I think I'll just wait till EA fixes the feed and run a few more instances of the updating engine.

To tell you the truth i kind-A-like the delays. Delays allow me to track my progress with all my stats.

Duh!! What I don't get is people raging because the updates are not as fast as they would want it... Duuhhh!!

You can get your stats updates directly in your game!!! What I like here is to be able to see everything in one page, if I want my score immediatly I can always check in the game it's updated within  10 minutes.

Come one, give the guy a break, he is doing a great job (which btw is not is job, he doesn't have to this).

Keep it up Chuy... people complaining don't know what it takes to build what you did (and still doing)

Make subscribers/donatees have access to faster updates

I am fine with the Queue, I am not THAT worried about faster rank and stats updates.  I come to this site more than twice a day at least, and if it says it will take me 6 to 14 hours of wait time, oh well, I'll wait and see tomorrow... meanwhile I would be playing some more BF2 to get my points up before the next big update   see what I mean?  It is encouraging to have the updates take a long time to process, makes you feel like you need more points, a better K/D ratio, or whatnot

chuy, how many requests for a player do you get on average? Or rather/and what is the rough limit on how many requests per second you are allowed to query?

I'm just happy to get stats, whichever way, as long as you're the one with the know how and the patience... for which I thank you
