I started running a regular API query that grabs match data from all WvW matches and scans for guilds that have recently claimed objective (along with what they claimed - camp, tower, keep). I noticed that sometimes the API gets stuck when, say, a camp flips, and it doesn't register the flip before it gets flipped back again. I've also seen some inaccuracies with which guild it says has claimed a particular objective, but I am wondering if it might just register the initial claimant and then not notice if the claimant switches later on.
Setting aside whether you think this is a worthwhile endeavor or not does anyone know if there are any issues with the API that would impede what I'm trying to do? Or should it work reasonably well in the long run, aside from the fact that it might not register every quick flip? For what it's worth, I think wvwintel.com has the same issues (as it should be hitting the same API).
