The goal of this project is to get the most comprehensive ranking of foreign players based on their actual results starting with the launch of Starcraft Remastered on August 14, 2017. We are incorporating every foreign event that has taken place. As I write this post we have finished the year 2017 and have gone all the way up to Bombastic Starleague 3. This being the first major foreign event that includes players from all regions made it a good place to aim for before going public. And here are the results:
Leaderboard as 01-21-2018
+ Show Spoiler +
Leaderboard as 31-12-2018
Attempts have been made to provide a foreigner ELO system before, but none have succeeded long term. We aim to fix the shortcomings of the previous systems.
- More detailed player profile
- Head to head table
- Exclusion of Koreans
- Exclusion of walkovers
- Inclusion of as many foreign events as possible
- Eventually up to date and updated frequently
How It Works
Glicko Rating System
-So long as a tournament is from Smash.gg or challonge, the import system does it automatically. Otherwise the results have to be input manually.
-Merging players when identifying a smurf/clan tag/other aka is easy fortunately.
-The date the event took place is what determines its results' effect on the ranking, not when it was added to the league.
-Matches from korean players are sometimes added but excluded. When a match or player is excluded it does not affect the rankings in any way.
-All Koreans are excluded except for Scan who is only 'Hidden'. His matches do affect the rankings, but he is not shown on the leaderboard, head-to-head table or anywhere else. Reason for this is because unlike other Koreans Scan has participated in enough events to have a meaningful impact.
How you can help: The goal from here is to continue updating until we are all caught up. Additionally we need help Identifying smurfs/other akas, adding flags, and adding events that are missing or aren't on liquipedia. Currently all that is missing from 2017 is week 8 of Pan American Team League and all of SK Teamleague. Teamleagues are the hardest to track down and BWCL/STPL will be included so access to those results will be helpful.
Thanks to DragOn, Shoop & RuDeGirL for helping make this possible.
