Can you elaborate on this new leaderboard API not allowing replays to be filtered by rating? Is this just not going to be possible at all in the future or will this feature return at some point? And why is it possible to filter them by rating in the older java client version and the python client if it was removed?

The old leaderboard access point in the api https://api.faforever.com/leaderboards is being depreciated and will be removed at some point the future since it is all hardcoded. To enable its removal the client cannot access these old endpoints.

The new leaderboard api where we query for the historical ratings for each game at https://api.faforever.com/data/leaderboardRatingJournal currently only stores the mean and deviation not the actual rating itself. This makes searching by rating an underspecified problem. The old format stored the global and ladder ratings as hard coded values however this is not being extended and as mentioned will be removed.

I have inquired if we can include the rating in addition to the mean and deviation and intend to bring back searching by rating in the replays as soon as that happens.
