OK, i'm a little out of touch with the whole betfair malarkey. As some of you will remember, a few years ago i was a die hard web scraper and it's good to see that my old VB6 code is still very popular in the Code Snippets section. I've just returned to sports botting after a break of around 18 months. Long story short, i'm no longer using Windows so this is my first crack at a Linux/Python bot. Have already got an API library that i coded up some time ago (but never used), but i'm just wondering what the state of play is regarding scraping and data charges?
What sort of refresh speeds can i get away with from scraping? I used to refresh at 25+ times a second but i guess those days are long gone unless you're willing to pay data charges. Have read betfair's data charges thing but can't make much sense of it. Can anyone that is still scraping the site give me some real-life figures please?
