i cant even input our war because its been ongoing for almost a year now its one the main uses i used the site was the ability to show the start until the end now thats impossible with the new 6 month restriction.
Its the reality of the way the software works. When you're working with up to 16 guilds worth of data with 6 different statistics over a year long period, the calculations alone done every time the page is loaded hammers the server. It just wasnt a realistic possibility to keep it the way it was in the long term, because the effects it would have on my webserver would get worse over time.
A 6 month timeframe is still plenty of time to analyze a war. Down the line once this new parsing method is stress tested, if it runs well enough I may consider opening up the timeframe a bit.
