    Offical Announcement:
    https://developer.riotgames.com/disc.../show/oklxAP21

    The only way of communicating to the Riot Servers will be through the API, as it should be. This could cause major improvements in things such as game stability.

    Plus you wont be stalked by random people every single game.

    Thank you Riot.

    This.

    By not allowing all 3rd parties to scrape on our live services anymore, and force them to use our API, our platform should be less affected by said scraping. Websites like LoLKing etc. will still be able to get those statistics and whatnot by using our developer API.

    If riot wants to deny other sites for doing good to us. Then riot should come up with solutions themselves goddamnid.
    LoLReplay is not affected by this in any way.

    So yeah. It's a good thing Riot is doing this.

    Also can you tell us more about this API system, Rito? I know nothing about it.
    If you are a developer/software engineer you'll know what an API is or how it works. If you're not, I'll quote a part from Wikipedia:

    Quote:
    In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) specifies a software component in terms of it's operations, their inputs and outputs and underlining types. It's main purpose is to define a set of functionalities that are independent of their respective implementation, allowing both definition and implementation to vary without compromising each other.
    So, an API effectively makes it way easier to access data, and lets you access that data is an organised and controlled fashion.

    Btw, currently it's not possible to create Developer Accounts at https://developer.riotgames.com/ . I'd love to create one, will it be possible in some time?
    Are you getting any specific errors or screen messages?

    I am able to get past that menu without problems. You have to log in with the same name you use to log into the client, not your summonername. Also be aware that you select the right server, since I think it defaults to NA.

    Good luck!
