Featured Site UpdatesBelow is a list of big updates that have been made recently to the site
I have not posted some HDH updates in a while so here it goes. The way the site was set up at the moment historic data becomes meaningless and current data is skewed by old data i.e. stats from playing on a team a year ago.
So I've spent the last few weeks changing the database so that the problems mentioned previously should no longer exist.
A new section called Organisations has been added to the site, each record will link to a list of each orgs present and previous rosters.
Each of the Organisation detail pages list out each of its previous rosters and present roster if there is one, along with start and end dates. The start and end dates are based on their first and last recorded scrim.
This change allowed me to update the team detail pages so that they only show stats for the roster you select giving a better idea of how the team is doing as stats for other team rosters wont be there.
This then allowed me to update the player detail pages so that they only show stats for their current roster by default. You are able to flick through their previous roster stats using the team dropdown.
The pro league has also been updated so that historic pro league data can be maintained.
Before I was only capturing weapon damage and it was pointed out to me that it should be capturing more than just weapon damage. So I spent the last few days altering the code to start capturing all forms of damage.
With this change all the pages have been updated with more damage stats as shown in the image below:
- Total Damage
- Weapon Damage
- Power Weapon Damage
- Melee Damage
- Gernade Damage
- Damage per Death
- Damage per Minute
- Damage per Kills & Assists
These damage stats are also available on the summary pages for each game variant.
Scrim Summary Updates
Updates to the scrim summary pages have also been made. Now along the top the difference between red and blue teams overall stats will be shown. The game results table has also got a design refresh. You should also now be able to click a player record on the scrim summary page and it should filter all the weapon, medals and head to head tables for that given player.
Personal Player Statistics07/02/2017
Personal stats are now available on Halo Data Hive. You can use the search input which is located in the top navigation. This is currently hidden on a smaller screen but will be amended soon. The personal player record pages will show the following information:
- Player Emblem
- Player Overall Stats i.e. Kills, Deaths, Assists, Damage
- Searchable Arena Games
- Ten Most Recent Custom Games
- Overall Player Weapon Statistic Breakdown
- Overall Player Medals Acquired Breakdown
- Current Playlist Rank, CSR and Percentage to Next Tier
All of the aforementioned stats are then broken down per Playlist and per Game Variant using thier corresponding tabs. Users will also be able to dive into their match detail pages where all match statistics will be present.
Red vs Blue Map Game Variant Combo Report25/01/2017
In an attempt to help professional teams and their analysists decided which maps they should veto for based on their seed at LAN events a Red vs Blue report has been developed and made live on Halo Data Hive. This report outputs the win and loss percentage values for each map and game variant combination. For example, red side on Coliseum has a 59.65 win percentage over the blue side based on 57 games.
This report provides a game variant and To and From date filters so that the user can customise the results they want to produce based on their own requirements. A current example of the report output can be seen below. Make sure to check out the Red vs Blue report as it contains some useful information.
The Addition Of Playable HEATMAPS25/01/2017
The match detail pages have been updated to include a playable heatmap. The heatmaps are defaulted to an overall view of kill and death positions. The event points are over laid on an image of the current matches map which represents the varying death/kill events recorded over an area and a set period of time.
Additionally, the heatmaps are playable, so the user can click the play button and the heatmap will be cleared and as the seconds pass by more and more points on the heatmap will appear. There is also the option to toggle the killer points on the heatmaps if you are not intrested in that information. To make these event points more meaningful they have been accompanied by an even description which appears in the red timeline i.e. 00:24 SnakebiteFPS killed Cratos. A full set of match event items is available to the left of the heatmaps which includes medals earn per event. To make this heatmap playback feature more user-friendly stop, pause and playback speed buttons have been added.
You must keep in mind that the map overlays used are not to scale and some points may be off. I hope that 343 provide map overlays that are to the correct scale to avoid this potential of being skewed. Also these points were calculated based on a large screen resolution so they will most likely be skewed if viewed on a smaller device.
An example of the new heatmap can be seen in a Capture the Flag match between Team EnVyUs and Inconcievable
Page Design Changes25/01/2017
The following pages have had their design layout changed to make reading the statistic more user friendly. Previously the tables had no background and were too compact which made it difficult to differentiate different tables of stats. The new page designs now have more separation between the tables of stats to make them more distinguishable.
Some pages have been made tabular to give more separation between sets of stats but allow them to remain easily accessible. The new page updates should also make viewable Halo Data Hive on a smaller device i.e. mobile/tablet a more enjoyable experience. The main changes have been made to the following pages so make sure to check them out;
- Player Detail
- Team Detail
- Scrim Summary
- Match Detail

Halo Data Hive’s underlying architecture has been completely rebuilt from the ground up. The speed of the site was always a concern and on positioned of the top of a long list of tasks to complete. After many hours of work, I have completed re-writing the whole site.
The increased speed should be noticeable right throughout the website from the player detail pages to the scrim summary pages. Now that the underlying architecture has been made more robust paves the way for additional updates which involve allowing users to retrieve their own stats.
