Hey, is there a public API for getting the leaderboard data, and game statistics? I need to get the top 10 players off for a project I'm working on, but I can't find anything.. :(

Hey! The API is a GraphQL API, and although it is not exactly public, the leaderboard query in particular is. You can see how it is being called by using the browser inspector's Network tab on the home page.
Just out of curiosity, what project are you working on?

Hey, thanks for the reply - I'll check it out later!And, for your curiosity, I was working on a Warrior.js Discord bot for players, like me.
Adding onto it, I've never used GraphQL, is it like REST?
No, it's different, you can learn more about it here:
You'll still use HTTP and JSON though
This is the HTTP request (in cURL) you need to make to get the Top 10 scores:
curl '' -H 'content-type: application/json' --data-binary '{"operationName":"Leaderboard","variables":{"limit":10},"query":"query Leaderboard($limit: Int) {\n leaderboard(limit: $limit) {\n username\n country\n rank\n score\n __typename\n }\n}\n"}'

Hm, alright. Definitely more confusing than I thought it would be, thanks though.

I've got some experience writing discord bots, DM me if you'd like any help getting this stuff going
