Stuff and things

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.

The GYO Scale

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.

The GYO Scale - Explained

Discover Your Strengths and Play Styles

GYO looks beyond what comprises the traditional leaderboard statistics and instead looks to put context around a game and the skills it takes to compete. Particularly in team games, a pure K/D ratio is not enough to truly claim victory, and team play is much more important.

Our GYO scale begins with an analysis first at several key metrics in specific categories of gameplay. Each of these categories represents whether or not you are performing at expected levels for the role/silo being measured. For example, if you're a Healer, are you healing? That's an extremely simple representation of one player's GYO Support score.

With Silo Scores calculated, we weight those scores against once another and within the context of the game itself in order to arrive at your Overall GYO Performance score. These scores are on a scale of 0 to 1.000, with a 1.000 representing an absolutely flawless player. Don't expect to see too many of those floating around!

Don't Worry About Today's Score. Worry About Tomorrow's.

GYO is not meant to be a definitive, absolutely perfect calculation of every player in the world. Instead, it is a system that uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to find trends and record long term performance. Overtime, you GYO scores will adjust up or down based on your play style as it evolves, or your skills and you work to shore up various aspects of your game. In short, we recommend players use their initial GYO Scores as motivation to train, play smarter, and take the next step in their skill development.
