Downloading a game dataset for learning/stats?


#1

Hi,

I suppose this has been asked before, but I couldn’t find it: is it possible to download an archive of games played during a contest for stats or machine learning? I would find it very valuable to have a dataset of thousands of games from the best contenders at LoCaM, for instance.

Has this been considered? If not, why not?

Thanks !

Several CodinGamers uses our unofficial api to collect data. I’ll let you find what call you need tho, most likely you’re looking for Leaderboard/Last Battles. Since it’s unofficial, it can change at all times and countermeasures can be deployed if we detect any negative impact/abuse.

Any particular reason (other than time, of course!) not to distribute datasets officially?
