    REQUEST FOR DEV CLARIFICATION: 3rd Party Privacy

    - Added a privacy setting in the UI so that players can specify whether they want to allow external 3rd party websites to be able to access their match history (defaulted to private).
    Does this mean:
    a) You cannot query the match history of a player using WebAPI if this is set to private, but if you query regarding a match they're in you get the full data
    b) Information on a match is only available if every player in the game has this set to public
    c) Information on games where one or more people have this set to private is incomplete (ie, they don't show up on the scoreboard)

    Given the fact that this is on the test client, it's not really possible for people to test these scenarios easily, and I think it's important for developers and the like to know what's going on so that they have several days in which to prepare their applications. If you could clarify how this works, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    edit: I'm aware this probably belongs in Misc, but I think it's much more likely to get a response here. Alternatively I could spam PM Valve staff, but I think that's both irritating and unhelpful.

    or
    d) If account who asks for data, didn't play in this game, and min. 1 player(in that match) have private mode, match will act like asking for private match - it won't be listed in GetMatchHistory, nor You will have access to GetMatchDetails.

    This isn't a discussion about third party sites or the merits of this change, it's a request for details on what this change involves. It's related to the development of this game and so I feel it's a legitimate thread.

    I would also like to know.

    My guess is that the match will be shown somhow like this:
    Match Result:
    Radiant Kill = 15 +- X
    Dire Kills = 28 +- Y

    when it comes to the players, their final KDA will be the same
    Kills +- z / Deaths +- a / assists +- b

    Also the blocking player will be blacked out.

    The number of urns will also need to be added a unknow factor, just in case

    and so on...
