Hello everyone, today’s update on the state of the game is rather short, so we decided not to edit it and rather just post it raw, in case you missed it by any chance. Stay tuned to see why riot is Turning Off Web Match History.
“Where do you go when you want to check match history for a game you recently played? Chances are, it’s probably the client or a community website. Very few players use our official Match History site, and we’re okay with that.
Web match history is in a similar situation as Clubs was: Community sites have done amazing things with the match data provided by our APIs, far surpassing our site. So, as with Clubs, we’re going to fully hand things over to these experts. On September 7 around 10:00 AM PST, the League Web Match History site will be permanently taken offline.
A few key notes:
- The client will still have a match history page
- We’re not shutting down third party access to match history data, though we are transitioning to a new service for it. Our Developer Relations team will continue to support third party sites during the transition.
- We’re also creating a solution for esports sites that should be an improvement to how they currently get data. Technically unrelated to regular match history, but worth mentioning.
