For most games, leaderboards only show the glamor stats - mostly kills, damage, and wins. We know that's not the full story, however. We believe most games involve deeper levels of performance consideration, so we have a different approach. We believe in seeking and measuring players who show exemplary performances in several key skill areas beyond the K/D and ELO.
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.
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.
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, your GYO scores will adjust up or down based on your play style. The score itself will evolve and you'll notice changes as your skills improve. 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.
