    Same here :/

    If you are getting more than a month's worth of data per month of 24/7 parsing, then you are probably going way above the rate limits. xD

    Not to be super negative, but if this wasn't a deliberate move by Valve, then I'd suspect that when they fix it, they will only allow it to go 500 matches back. Every other argument has this limitation so I'm thinking that the date_max was a loophole. If you don't want to worry about these API issues in the future, building a server may be the way to go. I'm thinking of doing that myself and catching the next dump.

    Do you think Valve is aware of this bug at the moment...?
    Should we ask Volvo to help us telling them?

    Yeah, they'll be affected by the date bug when a user unprivates their account and wants data..
    so hence the 500 match limit.
    unless, of course, you had your privacy settings turned off for less than 500 matches, cos they'll see your ID in those matches and save that in their DB for the rest of time, regardless of privacy settings.


    but in general yeah, they would query so often that they don't need to worry about the bug when they just are just regularly pulling data.

    using dates was the only way to retrieve all matches for a steamID, start_match_id would stop at 500.
    and yea dotabuff probably queries very frequently and stores their own data, so they're not really affected by this.

    They mention it in the special thanks section of their website http://dotabuff.com/pages/about#support. Also, I know I saw it somewhere, but they say that if you have been private for over 500 matches that they will not have that data available. So they run into many of the same problems everyone else does.

    But unlike what you guys are doing, dotabuff has all the data, and then does whatever searches/filters on their server side.
    I.e. bugs mean nothing as long as they can get the data for every single match ever.

    Bugs can take weeks to be fixed if at all. Dotabuff uses the webAPI... sick of seeing everyone throwing FUD around.

    Do you know if any of these bugs actually get fixed? Has this ever happened in the past?

    Nice. But it is the only way to get all matches by profile. Although to all appearances dotabuff uses another way. But we have not some information or any idea about it.

    Yeah, some confirmation on the date_min/date_max issue would be cool.
