If I ask for ship details from the Encyclopedia, for example here

https://developers.w...clopedia/ships/

 

giving any ship_id gives me full info:

If I ask for ship_id = 4277057520, which is old Baltimore, I get:

 

Spoiler

 

Why there is no info returned, despite of the good practice for keeping separate ID for the old version of the ship? I am trying to do some stats on old replays and it would be really, hm, weird API design if any ships found in those were no longer supported. 

Are you aware of any other surprises? I hoped that everything, if is changed (ship, upgrade), receives a new ID - am I wrong?

Guys walks into a shop......"Hi, can I have a Mars bar, please?"

"No!", says the owner.

"Why not?", asks the guy.

"This is a butcher shop" replied the owner.

If you refer to "tankocentrism" sometimes present here, I'd like to inform you that this is the official forum for API servicing all WG games, not only WoT.

Don't be mislead by the domain name :bush:

 

Still, if it is not a bug, I would expect similar stories already heard for obsolete tanks, guns etc.

This is the World of Tanks official forum.

No. From https://developers.w...etting-started/ you are redirected to the API forum, which is here. It is not for WoT only.

 

Anybody helpful here, please?

Oh. Well. If that's really the case and people get even redirected here... then this part of the forums is even more dead than I thought. 

Maybe try the pinned thread or look for some active players who posted here...

Topic for general discussion of using Wargaming Public API.

 

With Bug reports and Suggestions to improvement please create ticket in Customer Service Center ( https://eu.wargaming.net/support/ ), category "Wargaming Public API".

 

compared to this:

 

https://eu.wargaming.../article/10733/

 Player Support will not be able to assist you with API related issues.

 

we know, we are on a wrap ... an infinite and never ending loop ... a ping pong game.

 

I tried to contact several CMs - they wrote a friendly answer but until now, nothing happened. One from WoWs didn't know the DPP has something in common with ships ...

 

I tried to bring it in the Gamescom questions ... oh my, we get fine armoured cars ... nothing happened.

 

We could report the Macedonian flag guys, for off topic (yes it's off topic in this section) and it will be removed like off topic "my tank is so bad" (this is the only thing you get someone from staff to this part of the forum). But I like the guys from Balkan and so I don't report.

 

Last thing that worked, was the change away from demo ID and the new rules.
