there are also other ways to build a warning bot, such as via banner evaluation. But certainly not many can do this and you can’t prevent the belief. so a few teams would have an advantage over all the others. therefore, it is fairer with the API.
there are 3 major services that i know of that offer it to large groups … and then another 30 individual players that have it available for their friends and teams … and those are just the ones i know about … so this idea that it’s not available to everyone is kinda silly.
the whole point of this api is that it is available to everyone (equally) … if they aren’t willing to ask for access or have a player develop something (like we all had to do) then that is their CHOICE. but with a public api … it IS available to everyone.
people can’t chose not to get / make an api tool and then complain they don’t have one. grant it, mine requires a no-hit … obviously, I don’t want something I’ve poured thousands of hours into be used against my own team / castles, but that still covers about 1/3 (or more) of all teams in atlas who can gain access to my tools.
