How does this tool find speedruns?
I take the full SpeedRunsLive list and then add streams using the Twitch API to search for particular terms. Right now, those terms are:
- "speed run"
- "any attempt" (Twitch's API ignores percent signs, even when encoded)
- "wr attempt"
- "100 attempt"
- "pb attempt"
- " rta"
The query is still being tweaked to hit as many speedruns as possible and reduce false positives. Let me know if you think of any other potential keywords or phrases.
It also filters out certain non-speedrunning games to minimize false positives:
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
- Dota 2
- Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn
- Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
- League of Legends
- StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
- World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
