Ward Stat Tracking is Coming- What are interesting Ward stats?

Xelnath hit the forums with asking users what kind of ward stacks they would like to see tracked as he works on the code.

Hey guys, 

I'm coding up some stat tracking for wards now. I want to give support and solo lane players some more recognition for amazing warding. Specifically, following up on the rule to prevent people from spamming wards in their base to cheese warding stats. 

I plan to add: "Placed a new ward" and "Killed a ward" as end of game stats. 

Is there anything else obvious you guys feel is worth noting at the end of the game?

Disclaimer: Everything we intuitively "get" as players may not be as easy to detect procedurally for a computer. 

What about types of wards bought?
I can separate Pink wards from Green wards, but I don't want to encourage losing players to sell all of their items to buy wards.

    I almost want to say that the tracker only counts the wards you've bought in a game you've won (to prevent losing players from selling items and spamming wards); and/or do not count wards placed in ones base? (outside the stone platform which includes nexus turrets)

    It might still be a chore though to get reliable stats on this type of thing.

    Sort of hard to keep a valid track of these scores, because people could jsut sit in base and troll by using sightstone and spam wards

    Waste of Riot's time and money on something that does not affect the gameplay at all. Better pay the guy to include objetives timers. That is a lot more useful.

    If you actually believe that vision control doesn't affect gameplay at all, i feel sorry for you dude. And objective timers is not something healthy for the game, it just punishes good players who keep track of those timers, and gives worse players the chance to defend those objectives, without really doing anything to deserve it

    ikr. this sound like the guy in champion select who goes "anything but support"

    It takes no real skill on remembering timers, it's a matter of memory.

  • #20 FeedMyADCplz

    Do you get the time of every jungle camp and are you there the second before they respawn so you don't get stolen?

    I guess yes, because that's just a memory issue.

     

    Get my point?

    ward density maps would be cool. like past 10 games, more wards in an area red, less: no color. that would be cool

     

  • #15 JocularThePeasant

    Agreed.

  • #4 Fleshwound2

    How about how long the game was. like a "Time" end game stat.

  • #3 Regaki

    That's a great idea! You can also add the number of enemy players spotted by your wards in the graph/statistics menu. It's just a suggestion, but i think that gives players the prespective on how efficient their wards were.

    Btw...keep up the good work!

    how about money spent on warding.  I want to know how much money out of my total game income goes towards warding.

    That doesn't seem to take into account vision and Oracle's Elixir. Otherwise a good idea for stat-tracking wards.

    ward x (75 if green, 125 if pink, 0 if from sightstone)

    I agree. They should give us stats over consumables too, like potions used, elixirs and oracles

  • #16 JocularThePeasant

    You actually count the number of wards you've placed, multiply by either 75 or 125, and then divide that into your total gold earned? I think you oversimplified. If not, I feel sorry for your team; especially if you play jungler or support.
