Steam Web API
This site uses the Steam's Web API and OpenID service for user ease and security to avoid the need of holding sensitive information such as usernames and passwords. It is also used for querying publically available steam information contained within the profile of a steam account such as the steamid, nickname, avatar and steam level. For more information visit: https://steamcommunity.com/dev
This site uses Discord’s OAuth2 service for the purpose of account verification. We use this in order to prevent users accessing our site or services who are banned / exiled from our service. When a user is authenticated, we store a discord userid of the account verified and link this to a steam account. For more information visit: https://discordapp.com/developers/docs/topics/oauth2
