spawningtool.com now points to lotv.spawningtool.com

If you go to http://spawningtool.com, you may notice that instead of sending you to http://hots.spawningtool.com, it now sends you to http://lotv.spawningtool.com. Welcome to the future, where Legacy of the Void is already released!

Of course, LotV isn’t coming out for another month, but we actually just saw our LotVĀ beat HotS in our google analytics data, so it seems that the tide is turning, and we want to make sure that the most useful data is available easily. We will, for the foreseeable future, continue to keep our HotS site online, but especially with the replay format changes, those replays just aren’t so useful anymore.

One question we have had a few times is why we split the sites. The primary reason is because the data is very different, and we had to have separate logic for both of them. Specifically, the unit types and game speed actually require different backends in place. Because of that, we felt that the data was altogether incompatible, so keeping them together would just muddle up statistics.

As for why you don’t share you user account between the two? That’s mostly laziness. The 2 sites are on different databases, and I didn’t put forth the effort to sync up the authentication between them.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the Legacy of the Void Spawning Tool site. Keep uploading replays and checking out build orders!
