    Can I access the data of what happened and is happening in the game in real-time through an endpoint and a table path?

    Yes, Planetside 2 has an API that allows access to game data in real-time. The API, known as the Daybreak Game Company API, provides endpoints for various aspects of the game, including player statistics, game events, and world data. You can retrieve data about what happened and is happening in the game through these endpoints.
    To use the API, you will need to:
    1. Register for an API Key: You can get an API key by registering on the Daybreak Games Developer Portal.
    2. Access the API Documentation: The API documentation is available on the Daybreak Games Developer Portal. It provides detailed information on available endpoints, parameters, and examples of how to query the data.
    3. Query the Endpoints: Use the API key to query the endpoints. For example, you can get real-time event data or player statistics by constructing the appropriate API call.
    Here is an example of how to use the API to get real-time event data:
    Replace <your_api_key> with your actual API key and YOUR_CHARACTER_ID with the character ID you are interested in.
    The API provides data in JSON format, which you can then parse and use as needed in your application or analysis.
    For more specific queries or additional details, refer to the official API documentation.
