Functions: AcceptAssignments

In order to receive assignment information, the assignment must meet the following criteria:

  1. The game originated from the third party
  2. The assigning account currently receives game from the third party
  3. The assigning account has selected to return assignment information to the third party that sent the games

At the time an assignment is accepted, whether by the official or the assigner, a call is made to the third party that sent the game with the assignment details below.
