A: On the Vainglory API Developer Portal
A: To get started, take a look at the Documentation where you can learn how to use the API.
A: Documentation is right here.
A: The API is currently in Alpha. Alpha software can be unstable and could cause crashes or data loss. Alpha software may not contain all of the features that are planned for the final version.
A: Head over to our public Discord and chat with some of the developers and designers who are already building tools with the API. Many of them would be happy to help you get started on your project!
A: The Community Free Tier allows you to begin developing and testing your app/tool using live data. It comes with a default rate limit of 10 requests per minute that is adequate for testing purposes.
A: The default rate limit of 10 requests per minute is for testing/development purposes only. Once you are ready to launch your tool, you can request a higher rate limit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Build awesome tools for yourself, or for the community! You can derive any information you’d like from the data, but you cannot scrape or store all of the data from the API. For a full list of what is acceptable and what is not, check out the Terms of Service.
A: The API is free for non-commercial use. For a commercial license, send an email to email@example.com
A: If you are doing any of the following, you will need to register for a commercial license: running ads, charging a fee to access your tool, selling aggregated data, monetizing on the data provided in any way.
A: With the API still in Alpha, we are not distributing commercial licenses yet. We will have more information on this soon. In the meantime, you can check the Terms of Service to see what are acceptable uses for the API.
A: With the API still in Alpha, we are not distributing commercial licenses yet. If you have further questions, or want to chat about it more, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
A: Reach out to email@example.com and jump into the Discord chat server.
A: With the API still in Alpha, it’s very possible the docs are not completely up-to-date. We’re updating the docs as we go! You can also contribute to the docs on Github if you’d like to make some changes.
A: The API defaults to searching for matches over the last 3 hours. To find any matches before then, you must specify a Created-at time.
A: We are working on a way to have assets available to you directly from Vainglory. In the meantime, the community has put together some great resources for you in Discord. You can find them in the pinned files in #vaingloryapi-chat.
A: Check out the Docs
A: The 2017 API Challenge submission period ended on March 26th. Check out the list of submissions.
A: You can join the API Challenge with any team size up to four total. All prizes will be adjusted based on the number of members on your team (up to four).
A: Some features available include Telemetry, Bulk Sample Data,
A: For the API Challenge, you don’t need to tell us what team you’re on. Where teams come into play is the submission portion of the challenge - when you submit your project, that’s when you’ll be asked who your team consists of!
A: You sure can! When submitting a mobile app, we just need to see that it works. You can have it run on an emulator, Testflight, etc. If you have specific questions on this reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A: We are constantly looking to add new features to the API. In the future you can expect things like account linking, match reservations, and many more! If you would like to help impact what the API will look like in the future, join the conversation on our public Discord channel!
