Diablo® III

Kickstarter And Blizzard API

Is it against the API Usage Policy to create a Kickstarter campaign to create an application that interacts with data gathered from the Blizzard API?

Would it make a difference if the application did not serve data directly from the API, but only data that is derived from API data - such as statistical data.

Thanks for anyone who can help!

Hi, Laidback,

The general terms are laid out at http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6248126731#1

If you still have questions about a certain case, you should contact api-support@blizzard.com to discuss them specifically, as you will rarely get an answer to such a specific inquiry on the forums.

Thanks for the response, Cyaga. I requested an API key yesterday afternoon, with the same question. I'm still awaiting a response.

Do you happen to have an idea on the response times for an API key request?

Yesterday :D

I asked weeks before the WoW expansion, never got an answer.

I'd suggest retrying if it'd been months, honestly.

I don't know precisely (it's an internal thing), but I know Straton and others on the team have posted that they do them in batches.

I've sent 3 requests, once every 2 months since announced. Not a single reply.

But given that they upped the cost, and items don't cost anything, it's pretty hard to hit the 30k usage limit now.
