My problem is that standing changes that appear instantly in game are taking a very long time to come through the api, a couple of hours it seems.

Is this normal? If so, is it a well understood interval of time? Should I be getting this data some other way (I use

Take a look at the cachedUntil timer at the bottom of the XML document. Making another API call to the same endpoint is unlikely to give you more up-to-date information prior to the expiry of that timer.

The min interval for Standings is 3 hours and for FW Stats 1 hour.

Thanks a lot. I can live with the delay, I mostly wanted to be sure I wasn't doing it incorrectly.
