If there are any New Ogham BB League players who are feeling lost after forums broke this is your regrouping topic.
Person who setup our forums on his server wasn't active on this season and I haven't been able to contact him. Still hoping that he replies to my email but it is possible that we can't get the forums back up.
But if you already have Slack account to https://newogham.slack.com/ login there or if not PM me as I need email for invite. Also https://twitter.com/BigBob_of_112th will report about any news related to forums.
I have made Big Bob who comments matches from our league in Twitter. His source code can be found from Github. At this moment his vocabulary isn't that great but already he can comment on matches based on score, casualties and other events and after latest addition also based on team rankings and distance to top team.
He is for me fun hobby project and also platform to test new techs on, so don't promise anything But thought it would be fun to share and ask if others would be interested in something like that.
Options to get commentator for your league would currently be to deploy it to your own AWS environment, or if there is interest I could probably see how it would work if you could connect your own Twitter account and league config to it. And of course best option is to join New Ogham so your league has world's first Twitter commentator.
Techs used are Python, Serverless and from AWS side Lambdas, DynamoDB, KMS and Step functions. Basically to get it running just need to have Git, Python, Serverless, AWS account and SDK, and then there is one manual step and after that it is just deploy with one command... Don't have instructions written yet because documentation and fun hobby project doesn't really mix
And then example tweets...
Does division activation work? I have been trying to activate PC division New Ogham competition Season VIII Division 1 perhaps 4 times now during last week or so, but still can't find any data from it.
Just now finally noticed that there is division page in goblinSpy but it is still totally empty. http://www.mordrek.com/goblinSpy/web/goblinSpy.html?platform=pc&league=New Ogham&competition=Season VIII Division 1 &q=*front
Also hoping to get Division 2 there too someday.
I am playing in http://newogham.datagnomes.eu/, which is perhaps quite small league with about ~20 active people at this moment but quite long history now, but when I would do something it would be open source and available for everyone.
That is why you want to have open APIs instead of closed for single company. I bet there are loads of other developers who could do interesting things if data from games would be easily available.
I think I know the answer already, my bet is Nope, but would really love to have one.
I know Toornament have some kind of API access to data, but their functionality is not working anymore and they have no plans of fixing that because low usage (well hard to get any usage when it is not working ). But if you can do API for one company probably you could do API for public also...
Would be happy with API that just can be used to get results and teams info, things that could be available to everyone (no access control needed). Perhaps just have some API key based quota or other to prevent dossing.
Would really love to do some twitter bot or have results/schedule visible on our league homepage.
