AOE2NET, Where and why?

There is no “official” API and that is the problem in my opinion. AFAIK, what aoe2net used was a mix of the leaderboard APIs and sniffing in-game data and adding that data to their own database that they then make available to the public via their own API.

Things that the dev team seems currently uninterested in investing significant time into like improving the lobby experience, tournament hosting tools, advanced stats and analysis, and machine learning, could all be pushed further along by the community if a well thought out and robust official API was developed and released.
