What is 'Global Ranking' ?

GPGNet was given an external tool from the community to rate people, this tool is named PlayerTrack. http://bitgoblin.com/fapt/ It gives arbitrary ratings, and thus may not give a fair rating to a player.

FAF uses a real rating system for each and every game. This system gives a real-time rating of all players who have participated in custom and/or ladder FAF games. A players' score depends on his in- game performance; good performance leads to increased rating, while poor performance causes a drop in rating.

Which games affect Global Ranking?

Only Custom Games affect global rating. 1v1 ladder matches affected 1v1 and global rating for a while, but now they are limited to 1v1 rating only.

When is the game rated?

Generally, all standard games are rated, but a few exceptions exist:

  • Sim Mods (RK's Explosions mod IS rated)
  • Cheats enabled in the game settings
  • Unit restrictions enabled in the game settings
  • Sandbox set as victory condition
  • Uneven numbers of players - e.g 3v2

Ranking in the lobby

You can access ladder (1v1) ranking from the Leaderboards tab, but only players who played a ladder game in the last two months are shown there. You can also see the approximate Global Ranking in the chat, when hovering over the icon of a user in the list.

Ranking in game

You can see the rating of any player next to his nickname in the FA lobby.
