    Hello guys,

    I'm wondering how do websites like DotaBuff collect information from a game and puts them into their website?
    Dotabuff is simply a website for Dota2 players, where they can check how many wins/loses do they have, and it gets updated very fast when a player finishes a new game.

    So again, my question is, how do they collect the player's information? Any idea?

    Thanks so much! Very curious about this :)

    Never played dota2, but i think its done by external software. It should be similar to garena client, which has bindings for dota.
