Towards a Community-Based Ranking System of Overwatch Players
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
Competitive games usually feature some sort of ranking system to rank players or teams based on their performance. As such these ranking systems allow to draw comparisons across players. In many cases, however, the details of the ranking system are not made transparent to the player community. On the other hand, the community may have a different opinion on which factors should more or less influence a player?s or team?s rank.
In this paper, we report on our first steps towards a community-based ranking system for the professional Overwatch scene built upon results of a survey conducted among the game?s community. Further, we reflect on challenges and discuss possibilities for future work.
