Api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams/ endpoint unstable

I am not sure if this is the right place for this, but i am getting unexpected results from this endpoint since earlier today.

I am querying with a game parameter like https://api.twitch.tv/kraken/streams?game=Quake+World which has worked fine for months but today i’m suddenly getting the top streams on twitch back at seemingly random times instead of something relevant to my game query. I’m still getting the right result most of the time though.

I noticed it happening with Quake World and Quake Champions so might be related with spaces in the game title but i’m url encoding them.

Any ideas?

Edit: This time it happened with “Warsow”, so spaces don’t matter.

Edit2: Some more info: I’m doing multiple queries after another for different games with 100ms sleep inbetween each. I just raise it to 200ms to see it makes a difference.
