VRC Predictions Discord Bot
So I though, “Hey, I wonder what happens if you plug all the results of VRC competitions into a special ranking algorithm” and it turns out it worked pretty well. Then I thought, “I wonder what happens if I put it into a Discord bot?” and it turns out that also works pretty well. Therefore, without further ado, I present that-Discord-bot-wot-I-made-for-predictions. No special permisions are required, but allowing it to send messages is always handy (It will work in DMs though as well). It’s designed with some specific features for a few servers, but the important commands are:
(I’m working on making a nicer help menu)
to show the top 10 teams worldwide based off the ranking.
to get the position of a specific team in the above ranking.
=predict <red> <blue>
to predict match outcomes
An alliance is represented as the teams in that alliance seperated by commas (no spaces!). Any number of teams can be in either alliance. For example, the command
=predict 66618Z,3116A 315G
on red against
Match data is updated every week or so, so if you want a comp to count towards it make sure the results are on roboevents :D. If a team hasn’t competed yet this season, the bot won’t know they exists and will error:
The prefix is set to
by default, but if you DM me @Bottersnike#3605 I can change it to anything you want. Command to do that yourself soon™.
to get the national prediction leaderboard.
to rank an organization’s teams.
=bracket <SKU/partial SKU>
to predict the results of a comp.
• Whatever else I feel like adding later down the line.
