YASP: Another (Dota) Stats Page

Q about the bias in the skill=? search of the match result api
would it be sufficient to just sample from all games older than a couple of hours?
As I understand it, the most recent matches are biased toward short games because the sort is by start time, and the longer recent matches finish later than the short ones

not sure what you mean by sample from games older than a couple hours.
Yes, you can only check skill level for the most recent 500 matches in each bracket. So even if you poll the endpoint continuously you probably won't be able to get official skill data for every match
And if you're only going to be adding 1-2% of all matches like YASP does, then most of that effort is wasted.
