Automatically pull kill board data

I am curious if there is a way to automatically pull killboard data on specific mercs or those in your corporation.

zKillboard will pull some of this data, but only on games that happened during PC/FW for orbital kills. So is there a way to pull this info out of the SDE or do a cache scrape every couple days to update a google doc on killboard data.

So no work on publicly available killboard data then?

Is there a possibility of getting it for use out of game ?

Currently we can add contacts to our list in-game as well as in our corp list and find out this data. I would just like this data to be more easily manageable. I would like to be able to pull this data out of the game for use in spreadsheet format without having to manually do it every week.

The leaderboards actually is a json service. Due to restrictions internally in CCP, they're unwilling to open it up to the public because they would need to test the integrity of the system to prepare it for public use.

As you can tell from the client, it really isn't optimized all that well and I'm pretty sure they just don't want it to be potentially used as a way to slow down TQ.

Thunder, most of the stuff CCP is exposing (per Foxy's comments a year ago - add salt) is generated and cached.
Kill-data could trivially be generated nightly for the previous day, and presented as a static data-set, similar to the Market Data.

Anyhoo, we asked about this stuff back in 2013, won't recommend any holding their breath .......

I agree. But it's better than making it available and it becoming a potential DDoS method.

I will say, it's possible to pull leaderboard data using their internal JSON service. But it would require getting public/private keys for your PSN-sign which are only obtained by the PS3.

I haven't actually tried, because I'm sure CCP wouldn't like it too much Lol

e: mainly because the service is read-write meaning it is theoretically possible to create a client separate of the game to do anything you would be able to do in-game outside of battles.

Is there any chance at all of this happening?

As I've explained to Ignitable Aura here it already exists.

However, it requires auth and is reserved for the client. The reasons it's not public is also listed in the thread.

It would't take too much time to make it cache properly as to not potentially kill TQ. But with the dev team as limited as it is, I just don't see it happening Cry

Dearest, loveliest CCP, we would love it if there was either:

1. An API for DUST 514 kills / deaths - the more detail the better but basic merc data as available on the in-game leaderboards would be a magical start

2. failing #1, a regular (weekly?) data dump of said data (and again, more detail, even better)


Yes I know the question has been asked before, in various comms. channels, but there's no harm asking again right? Things change.... :)


Help us dearest, loveliest CCP - you are our only hope.

but why is it bad to do the out-of-battle stuff that you normally could do in-game?
isnt that basically what the neocom (CCPs stillbirth portable app) was supposed to do? everything but the battle cluster stuff? but from your pocket?
edit: nvm also a stupid question... exploitability abounds. still would be cool. id rather use my phone to sell my assets/player trade(Soon™)
