API Access Client Quotas


Yesterday APIs started to return 429 (Too Many Requests) responses more than usual. Although I’ve disabled many services and making sure that I don’t exceed the rate limits after a brief amount of requests services return 429.

This issue is also validated by @Schiller on Blizzard API Dev Discord Server.

Waiting for your support, tyvm…


Confirming this is an issue I have experienced since yesterday also.

Took steps to reduce the number of service requests being made, no noticeable improvements.

The volume of requests are in the less than 100 per 5 minute range.


Same problem here. EU is the most problematic region in my case(SC2 API). Error distribution by region(approx): 70% EU, 20% US, and the rest is CN and KR.

Yep, this’s really a major issue and APIs are unusable right now.

Waiting for response…
