Understanding Encounters

Event

This is what GuildStats considers the entire log file, in short a event starts when you start the combat log and ends when you stop it.

Encounters
A Event is split up into several encounters, a encounter normaly split when you go out of combat between trash or boss tries. Encounters is a very effective way of showing different tries on Boss and you can select different encounters with the drop down menu on pretty much every page.

Trash encounters are merged when the logs are uploaded to the site
