TORParse will update once a week until future notice

Hi all,

Until we move to a more powerful server and upgrade our hard drives, TORParse will only update the leaderboards once a week on Tuesday morning (beginning at 3 a.m. Eastern Time) before the weekly SWTOR reset.

Our current leaderboard update CRON script is very inefficient and takes almost an entire day to run, which is a major contributing factor to the slow website and client performance we've been experiencing lately.

If you are an experienced Linux server administrator or PHP programmer familiar with CRON PHP scripts and think you can help with TORParse script optimization, please email me at and we can hopefully improve TORParse so we can update the leaderboards daily again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
