Frequently Asked Questions

In-game data in esports refers to the collection, analysis, and utilization of data generated by players’ interactions within a video game during competitive play.

This data encompasses a wide array of metrics, including but not limited to: player movements, in-game decisions, timing of specific actions, usage of game resources (like ammunition, abilities or items), positioning on the game map and much more. 

At GRID we recognize the following types of in-game data — live. central, historical, statistics, predictions and video feed.

In-game data may also be referenced as esports data or game data.

For more information check the article Dive into the game: Understanding Telemetry Data in the GRID Knowledge Hub.

These data points combined give incredible context to what has happened in esports history and help inform what could happen next.

Esports data combines both in-game data points, such as a player action capturing an objective; and also out-of-game data points, such as which players are playing on which esports team and when they are playing next.

Adding the out-of-game data points contextualizes each instance of in-game data — such as showing a comparison of performance between two teams’ matches over time or an individual player’s performance across various teams through their career.

Currently, Open Access gives you free access to select tournament historical match data for two esports titles: Counter-Strike 2 and Dota2. Open Access does not provide access to live data for esports integrity reasons. GRID is working to add new titles to Open Access over time. 

Additional titles and live match data are available for enterprise customers. To get access please contact the GRID Sales team [email protected]. To learn more about commercial data portals, see below:

GRID data is sourced only from direct integrations with the game servers and is licensed from game publishers or tournament organizers such as Riot Games, Ubisoft and Starladder through official partnerships. Data collected without express permission from any rights holders in gaming is considered as unofficial.

Working with officially licensed data supports the relevant rights holders and thus supports the esports ecosystem’s growth. For users, it ensures that projects and potential business are being built on the most reliable, granular and sanctioned data available – eliminating the risk of potential legal troubles down the line from unauthorized data usage.

There are several benefits to using GRID esports data, namely: its ease-of-use, officially licensed usage, and growing of the community of esports data users. 

GRID uses a title agnostic model, which means that regardless of the title, the data points will look the same, reducing the complexity of working with multiple different game titles. For instance, you can work the same way with GRID data from CS2 to Dota2 — there’s no learning curve between titles due to a standardized event mapping.

GRID data is officially licensed from partnerships with game publishers and tournament organizers, meaning a reliable, granular, and secure data pipeline leading to unparalleled accuracy of the data you use. Any project built using GRID data is protected from takedown risk due to unlicensed usage complaints.

Open Access is unlocking the potential of official in-game data for everyone.  By putting previously unavailable official esports data into the hands of the community, GRID is actively trying to help the projects our users are developing grow into the next big case-study for in-game data.

Open Access is free-of-charge. To access live data feeds and additional game titles use the following forms to get in touch with our Sales team:

The mission of GRID is to unlock the potential of in-game data for everyone.

Getting access to esports data and contextualizing it can be difficult resulting often with early stage projects reaching for unofficial sources. . 

GRID’s goal is to help the next generation of data enthusiasts gain access to high-quality data and standardize data collection methods to enable more opportunities for building with data, rather than spending time continuously maintaining and fixing a data pipeline.

There have been a few projects built on Open Access by GRIDers, such as building a Twitch ChatBot using in-game data and a tutorial on consuming an esports GraphQL API using JavaScrip.

If you are building a project on Open Access and would like to share a case study or tutorial for a chance to be featured on the GRID blog, please get in touch with [email protected].
