Marvel SNAP Tracker Companion Feature Update

Our Tracker Companion has been a roaring success so far, and now has many new features and updates since we covered it last! HowlingMines is here today to help walk you through all the details!

Howdy, Snappers! – Friendly Neighbourhood HowlingMines here with an article that’s a little bit different than the kind of thing you’ll normally see from me here on Snap Zone. I wanted to take the time to update everyone on some of the newest features of our Marvel Snap Tracker Companion in collaboration with ProMeta and Snap.Pro!

Wait, You Guys Have A Marvel SNAP Tracker?

Yeah, we certainly do!
In case you missed it, we launched our dedicated Tracker Companion back on December 1st and it’s been a resounding success! While we do still consider the project to be in open beta, we’ve been overwhelmed by suggestions, praise and feedback – some of which we’ve already implemented and I can tell you about today

There are download links all over the site, but I’ll make sure to drop one here too – there’s even another one on this handy little graphic telling you all about some of the features it has!

Download the Marvel Snap Tracker

The Marvel Snap Tracker by Prometa is your best free companion app for Marvel Snap! The Public Beta version is now available for downloading and testing by the community! Its features include:

  • Real time collection and deck tracker
  • Monitor your win rate and find best Cube-earners among your decks
  • Observe your ladder climb and ranking progress
  • Track your matches, each with replays, and inventory
  • Find decks using your current collection
  • Get daily summaries of your in-game accomplishments

Most importantly, there’s a nice dedicated installation guide, and FAQ over on the download page too, so if you’ve got any concerns about getting it up and running, be sure to go take a look there. If you’re still unsure, come and find us in the Community Discord Server or open up a ticket over on Github and a member of the team will look to take care of you!

Why Is It Only Available On Windows? Why Isn’t It Real Time?

I’ll cover these two questions here as they’re easily the ones I get the most, for all your other questions, please check out the FAQ linked above or reach out to the team.

The current version of the tracker is designed to be used with the Steam version of Marvel SNAP.

We understand there is large demand for Android/iOS/Mac trackers, but these are proving difficult to do. I just wanted to make it clear to everyone who is asking for such a tracker that it isn’t that we “don’t want to” – we simply can’t just yet.

Rest assured, once I’ve got more information about making the tracker available on other devices, I’ll be the first to scream it from the clouds for you all to hear!

In terms of “real time” tracking, please see this statement from our Lead Developer, Razviar:

Do you have an overlay?
Nope, since the data in logs is not updating dynamically during the match. This means that the Devs didn’t wanted players to have in-game advisory tools. We respect that and provide only analytical instruments, without live in-game support.

Are you going to make an overlay?
In theory we could use memory reading tech to get the data right from running game’s memory. And this could let us make classic tracker with pop-up overlay on the game screen. But we don’t want to be that intrusive and keep our tracker minimalistic. We use only the data Devs decided to make accessible for 3rd parties like ourselves, without hack.

Okay, So What Does This Thing Do?

Alrighty, let’s take it from the very top – first of all, if you’d like to watch this all in video form instead of reading all this, I made a video covering everything too!

The App:

When you’re done installing the Tracker Companion, it’ll look a little bit like this:

Pretty swanky, huh?

From this first page, you can stop and restart the tracker at any time, access settings, see which accounts are linked to the tracker currently (if you like to switch accounts), the last time of update, and buttons to take you to the more important parts we’ll cover below.

The settings tab is nice and simple too: You can make the tracker start on bootup of your computer, disable any auto-updates if you don’t want it to do that for some reason, have it start hidden away so it doesn’t just pop up, and clear out all your settings if you’d like to start again. There’s also some log information, which I’m not afraid to admit I know basically nothing about.

Remember, you will need to have this open and active if you want to track your games!

Collection Tracker

One of the earliest features the tracker had – you can track your complete collection (including variants!) automatically, as the the tracker will update in real time with what you have, where they come from, and what rarities you have them in! More importantly, all this information can be filtered using the settings at the top, including showing only cards you own, cards you don’t, and a myriad of other options to track your collection in full.

Match Tracker

We also get to track all of our games, including data such as wins/losses, locations played at, win rate, cube average and much much more! On each individual game, we can see:

  • When We Played It
  • How Long It Lasted
  • If It Was Ranked
  • Which Card Got Boosters
  • Our Opponent
  • The Deck We Played
  • Information About That Deck
  • The Locations and Their Final Scores
  • A Link To A Full, Turn By Turn Replay Of The Game

That’s a ton of information, and it goes even further – we can filter this information by location, date, deck we played, cubes won/lost, or opponent. We can get even more information if we click on the deck’s name for each game.

There, you’ll be able to get a full breakdown of your 7-day, seasonal and all time win rate with a deck, and how many cubes it has earned, a full editable, exportable decklist, and more information about where those cards come from, your energy curve and also your power curve!

And those turn-by-turn replays I mentioned earlier? They’re kinda hard to grab a screenshot of so you can see it in action in the video above, but it looks a little like this, with the ability to change the turn of a game and see what happened on it:

Decklist Database (Personal and Public)

We also keep track of every deck you’ve ever built in Marvel Snap, so if you need to go and pick up a list you deleted to make space, it’ll be right there – clicking on any of them will take you to a dedicated information page just like the one shown above. More importantly, this database can also be used to filter your decks, by anything you like, their pool, if you have all the cards/are missing cards, and many many more filters. I encourage you to have a play with them once you’ve downloaded the tracker itself!

Anyone with their account set to “share with community” will have their decks appear in the global database, and can be seen, exported and filtered in the exact same way!

Progress Tracker

The tracker also keeps of all your progress while it is active – you’ll see how close to a complete collection you are, what rarity your cards are at, your rank progress across seasons, and also your collection level progress (including when you unlocked cards!)

You can also click on the “My Profile” tab to get a curated feed with all of this information, all in one place!

Custom Account Settings

If it’s clout you’re looking for, the “settings” tab will allow you to update your credentials, share your decks with the community (this setting is switched off by default) or connect to Twitch or MarvelSnapZone to get everything synchronised!

Public Leaderboard

This also allows us to collate information about the players using the tracker who are currently performing the best, and display them on a competitive Leaderboard for all to see – this includes their rank, Collection Level, Games Played, Tracked Win/Loss rate, Average Cubes Per Game, and the decklist they play the most, which you can click in order to go to a page just like the others showcased above for a decklist, and get everything you could need to play it yourself…

… well, apart from any cards you’re missing, I can’t help you there.

Metagame Snapshot (FOR ALL DIFFERENT RANKS!)

This was a big, heavily requested one. The “Meta” tab will take you to a snapshot of the current metagame, showcasing decks that are performing best. However, you can now filter this by whatever the most important factor is to you, including but not limited to:

  • Rank (20-49, 50-79, 80-99, 100+)
  • Win Rate
  • Average Cubes Per Game
  • Play Rate
  • Overall Number of Win/Losses

This should help all users not only find decks that are performing well, but more specifically, ones that are performing well around them!

Summary:

Whew, I think that’s everything – we’re very proud of the work that’s been done on the Tracker Companion, and cannot wait to upgrade it more as we aim to make it the best Marvel Snap Companion on the market!

If you’ve got any questions, concerns, or feedback, the best places to drop them are the Tracker Bug Report channel of the Community Discord Server or open up a ticket over on Github

We hope you’ll continue to love the Tracker Companion as much as we do, and keep helping us work toward making it the best it can be.

I’ve been HowlingMines, you’ve been amazing.
See you out there in the Multiverse!
