Battle.net new API, blue post
- Published on Thursday, 11 August 2011 22:05
Hello dear World of Warcraft gamers,
during the Holidays, Blizzard released the official (still uncomplete) WoW API, based on JSON. I've already took a first look at them and this may really change the way we currently look for our guild's progression (easier, faster!). I'm posting this news now due to a blue post appeared on the EU forums, here it is:
HTML Datamining and You (by Takralus, World of Warcraft -> Forums -> Gameplay -> General)
As the current tracker (4.0.3) uses the HTML datamining technique in order to grab the data, I want to advise you about the possibility battle.net may temporarly or permanently ban your website, if it's highly visited, suggesting you thus to disable the module in this case.
I'll work on a 5.x version of the module, still for Joomla! 1.5 (portable to 1.6 this time), in order to grab the data from the new API (and re-introducing the heroic boss-per-boss progression!).
