V1 API issue with rankings of russian players

First of all sorry for my english. :slight_smile:
I have a problem with getting rankings (and parses) from https://www.warcraftlogs.com/v1/docs/ for russian player.

For example I want to see rankings for some players from Ревущий фьорд https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/server/495/latest/. The ‘slug’ for this server is ‘howling-fjord’, so my request looks like this: https://www.warcraftlogs.com:443/v1/rankings/character/Деисик/howling-fjord/EU?zone=10&metric=dps&api_key=
(Деисик is just random russian player from server rankings). But I always get “Invalid character name/server/region specified.” error. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Use the Russian slug. It’s annoying but slugs are actually localized, so my API expects you to use the same locale for the slug as the locale the server is in.

Thanks for quick response. Russian slug really works with russian realms (like Свежеватель Душ), but not with all of them (i.e. Ревущий Фьорд). After some time I figured out that the problem is with all realms that contain “й” in their names. So, in order to it starts working you should replace “й” with “и”. So, for example, slug for “Ревущий Фьорд” looks like “ревущии-фьорд”. I don’t know if it should be like that or it’s a mistake, but I wrote it for people who will face the same problem.

I’ll double check and make sure. I just imported the slugs using Blizzard’s API, but this was done ages ago before they changed APIs.

Oh crap! Thanks a lot for your answer.
Blizzard just sucks on this one:
Nerzul EU with local fr_fr
Nerzul EU with local en_en

But I’ll be able to fix my issues easily!

I confirm that russian realms with ‘й’ should be written instead with ‘и’ , then it ll work
