    You can order lobbies by server, slots or alphabetically.
    Soon featuring incredibly detailed custom game statistics, including a way for map makers to keep their maps up to date for their players, see statistics on how much their maps have been played, including popularity and more! No need to open up Warcraft 3 to check for open games anymore.

    This using OCR to pull lobbies visually from the custom game list? Or some other method?

    No, it parses the data directly. Like ENT used to have.

    It looks cool but its a bit buggy and inconsistent. As in it doesn't always show maps I hosted. To be honest that leads me to believe I'm probably missing out on a few maps if I was to go by this. Some maps tend to last forever on the game list despite not existing (costom hero 123 for example). Still I'm looking forward to the finish product as this would be pretty awesome. Specially to map makers or people looking to keep up to date on maps they like to play.

    Pretty cool, but the colums are too large.

    You have a column that is like 600px for a text that just says [eu] which is like 20px same for game size

    So will Blizz devs be actively working to break the anti-bot authentication bugs so that this doesn't work anymore? If so, why?

    Well technically they might start to feed back user activity in which case the robots will flag up and be banned for ToU violation. Similar reasons they ban robots in WoW and D3.

    It would be better if they made an official API for this that can be accessed externally from outside the game.

    I've seen what looks like bot games in the game list too. Looks like someone's cracking the encryption.

    In case you aren't aware I've had a website which provided this feature for about a year now.

    WC3 Maps (map previews temporarily disabled)

    It also tracks how often each map is hosted, and much more.

    You're insinuating that I'm stealing the data from your website and putting it onto mine, or what?

    Hopefully you're joking because it's clearly not the case.
