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.

@noctistv Please open a new thread. This is a thread for tracking a bug. This might be a slight behavior change or bug depending on what it is exactly.

@betz0r @tduva: The issue of the missing streamers should be resolved. We deployed a fix a couple of days ago. Please let me know if you see this problem again.

Big shout out to @jwmalara who was kind enough to provide a lot of data and access to his platform.

Thank you all for the patience as we tracked down the issue. :slight_smile:

Quote your game name.

No more errors on my system, thank you for fixing this issue.

Cheers @DallasNChains + Team !

Sorry it took so long! I had to fly to San Francisco and stand at people’s desks. :wink: I kid. Kind of.
