This is where the cache is useful.

Again I don't blame you because you decided to not do it. It is your thing. But I cannot figure out what is more difficult/terrible for server than additional stats on the weapon page (for EVERY weapon! <= wow).
And I don't get the idea of a cache that creates more traffic. The point of cache is to reduce it actually… It is not critical if the stats are not updated after each game, but only say upon request.
By the way appart this stats things, it can be useful to reorder dog tags, and pack them by type:
- weapon types
- vehicule types (tier 1 & 2)
- game types
- kit type
- squad (repair, ressuply, …)
- weapons (tier 1 & 2)
- equipment (tier 1 & 2)
- promotions (alienware, dr. pepper, etc.)
- community challenges
- misc meddals (MVP, nemesis, avenger, …)
- misc (Dice, …)
Except for misc they all depend on a particular stat. Two examples above.
