Number of API calls request is hi

Post by zakspeed » 06 Jul 2013, 19:27

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 should I allow my users to update the data? Is the server updated once per day? What interval would be good to use.

The game gets instant stats on points/rankings, it seems that the Web Services lags, could you explain a bit about this?

Rankings are updated once a day only. However, the game makes an estimation of what your rank should be considering your points and the last computed ranking (so it seems like it's instantly updated while it's actually not).
