Zone Ranking for Solo

Hi,
I have noticed that when I play solo, I get zone rankings, but I only can get World rankings from the API. Am I missing something?

Time of day stat update happens

I am writing an iOS app. I want to restrict the updating to once a day (like the servers seem to do). I noticed the stats changed around 9pm. Does anybody know when I should start allowing updates. The one obvious answer is midnight, but if the stats are updated by 9pm, I will use that instead. Than...

Number of API calls request is hi

I am writing an iOS app and should be completed in a month or so. I find that I need to make many API calls since each one retrieves so little data. It would be great to get a snapshot of a player's points and rankings with one call (or even better, for more than one player at a time). How often sho...

oauth2 clienti id/secret - am I missing something

All,
I am learning OAuth2, but all samples I see want a client id and client secret along with scope. I don't see this specified on the page I created the OAuth2 app. I am creating a iOS app so the php code does not help answer how to get this to work.

Thanks

Re: API rates for iOS app

Having the user create the username/password is possible. I would need to create an interface to access the pages, ugly, but could work. I want the app to show any player in any zone. If a user chooses to browse through the zone rankings, I could quickly use up the API calls since I can only get 10 ...

Re: API rates for iOS app

Assuming my app will work across the world, like Trackmania does, I would need to cache all the players in all the zones. I could do this daily and cache the data, but I don't see that I have enough API calls to do this. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Re: API rates for iOS app

A cache system might not even work. The API seems to restrict the length to 10 when getting things like zone ranks. I don't think there is enough API rate to cache the data to my servers. I knew this was going to be an issue, but was hoping it would not be so difficult. :?

Re: API rates for iOS app

One option I am thinking about is to require the user of the app to register for the API, therefore they would need to manage the rates, which should be under control. This is not ideal since the app would be useless unless they register. I am thinking of other options, but wanted to see what Nadeo ...

API rates for iOS app

Hello, I am creating an iOS app that I would like to deploy. I realize now that the 360/hour will not work if I get just a few people using the app. :) How should I handle this? Also, it would be nice to get multiple data returned. The API as it exists now will require many requests just to get some...

Temp. Local storage of rankings

I want to keep a history of a user's rankings. I would think a month or two would be all I would require. After the ranking is older, it would be purged from the local store. Is this an issue?
