  6. The count of games by the Era used.

Would there be a way to show this online too? Not sure how difficult this is to
add but it would be nice to be able to connect this simply to the webpage and view
there without downloading. (Downloading means I have to use one click, then
use the terminal to cd and then open; I know others have it so they can automatically
run an open-action via their browser, but I actually operate via the commandline
terminal almost exclusively so an online-viewer in the browser would be much
simpler for me.)

I'm sure it's possible, though it's not something that's likely to be implemented any time soon.

Does the data include games played solo vs the ai (on the server of course not local)?
Does it include only games that were finished?

p.s. Wow, found a use for LibreOffice! Last time I used a spreadsheet was Lotus 1-2-3 (MS-DOS) or something like that. :)

It includes all games played on the server that have finished and that lasted longer than 5 minutes. It also does not distinguish between a brand new game and a reloaded game.

Hello, is there any way to know the results (win/loss rate) of a certain map?
9. The count of games by the Map used.
So far, I got only the number of games a certain map has been played but this excel sheet tells me nothing about who won or who lost.
(the map in question is multiplayer_2p_Dark_Forecast)

There currently is nothing recorded about who won or lost. The issue is that while it would be possible to determine the winner in the case of a leader death (in regular scenarios) or if a side surrendered, there's no way to determine a winner (ie in case of a rage quit) or if a winner even needs to be determined (ie in case of a game being saved in order to be continued later). Additionally, since information about the actual game state is kept on each client, there's no way to determine a winner in case of an OOS or if someone modified their client to just always say they won - it'd be possible to ask every client who they thought the winner was, but if they disagree there's no way to determine which is telling the truth.

Besides the Wesnoth Philosophy is that it's not about winning but having fun. :-) I endorse that BTW.

April has been added, as well as March for real this time, since I guess it didn't save last time somehow.
