For most games, leaderboards only show the glamor stats - kills, damage, etc. However, we believe most games involve deeper levels of performance consideration. We have a different approach, and we believe in rewarding players who show exemplary performances in several key skill areas beyond the K/D.
To analyze skill, we look specifically for the Game's Effective Mechanics (GEMs) and measure your performance based on a simple principal: are you doing your job? If the mechanics of the game or your role dictate that you capture control points, heal players, use shields, etc etc, we analyze whether or not you are doing these things and doing them effectively. This is the core principal of our GEMs system.
As we continue to evolve the platform, we will begin awarding gemstones exemplary performances within these key performance verticals. The better you perform, the more gems you will earn, and the larger your treasure horde will grow overtime. Later, as you examine your riches, a comprehensive profile of who you are as a player will begin to emerge based on the types of gems you have, and the frequency which you receive them.
Play your game your way and so long as you are contributing to the team and playing your role according to the GEMs, you'll earn your treasure with GYO.
Numbers like the above which indicate your GYO score. The scale is from 0 to 1.000. A zero indicates no effort in a given category, while 1.000 represents near-perfect execution.
The normal expected range for each value is different. Use these scores as a baseline for your current performance and as an indicator for how you can improve. Compare these numbers to other players in your desired target performance range to understand how to adjust your game.
For the traditional, offensive minded player who often looks for engagements and scoring opportunities above all else, we choose the red Ruby. A strong Ruby can turn the tide of battle, but a reckless one can single-handedly sink a team and a full team of Rubies will rarely succeed in a team-based objective mode.
The blue Sapphire represents a player who often provides more defensive value than offensive. In many games, this represents the role of the Tank or Defender, and often centers around timely teamplay and the perseverance of sustained attacks. Above all else, survival is the name of the game for Sapphires and their teammates.
The green Emerald is the prize jewel of the strategic player, a player knowledgeable to know what the team needs to emerge victorious from specific matchups. An Emerald is often concerned with map control and strategic objectives that help their team be successful.
The yellow Citrine player is one who attempts to see and understand the whole battlefield. A strong Citrine is efficient and effective with ward placements and clearing to help their player take control of the map.
For orange Ambers, resource collection and management is the name of the game. Proper Ambers always have strong gold income and experience levels by farming minions and jungle camps, and can ensure their team doesn't fall behind in the resource race.
A purple Amethyst player often puts team ahead of self, and leads through communication and effective support of teammates. Communication and timing is key, as an Amethyst is often front and center in team fights and objective pushes, and they are helping sustain the team as they make their charge.
