Version one of the new Leaderboards are coming with the January Patch, and we’ll be giving the top five players the new Ultimate Gladiator Skin (which will also be available for purchase) to celebrate. Before they go live we want to explain how they work. If you have any questions on them, feel free to ask us via our social channels!
How It Works
There is one score on the Leaderboard which is based on your top three games each week. That score is calculated on how well you play the ships you are in (calculated by your XP per minute in a match) – so if you are playing support you don’t have to chase takedowns to do well, likewise if you’re playing a capping ship you can focus on your job – it all counts towards your score.
We compare the XP per minute you earn in a match to what the average is in that ship. Score better than the average and you will get higher scores on the leaderboard. We then take your three best matches and add them into your overall score, regardless of how many ships you use or how many games you play – a poor game will not bring your score down (while a good game will bump it up, so there is every reason to get one more game in).
The Leaderboard will be refreshed every week at 10:00 UTC on Tuesday, and the top five players at the end of the first week will each earn the Mimas Gladiator Ultimate Skin (also available from the store).
Where To Find It
The new Leaderboard is in your “Profile” under the “Leaderboards” section on the left hand side. When you click “Leaderboards” you’ll see your relative position amongst your friends and the top 10 within PvP (you can filter between friends and global). There is also the option to view the Co-op and the previous leaderboards under the “All-time” section on the left.
We will continue to work on the Leaderboards throughout the next few months, so please let us know what you think via our social platforms.
