Fortnite Tracker Power Rankings

For those who want to see the Power Rankings, you might want to visit Fortnite Tracker. This one has created and optimize a great community tool. The tool is designed to fairly rank the best players in the world. To make it possible, they gathered many ideas and feedbacks from both competitive and casual communities.

The first iteration (V1.0) of Fortnite Tracker Power Rankings was launched on January 22, 2020. The tool is really simple and useful. The search can be filtered by region, platform, and Epic ID. The main vision of it is seamlessness and integration.

How does Fortnite Tracker calculate the ranks?

In order to calculate the rank of the player, a cumulative point model is used. Each event a player joins in will be worth a specific amount of point, which depends on placement and event difficulty or importance. The system is created based on point, flat point distribution between 5 to 1000 for anyone that gets a top 10,000 event placements. This one is amazingly top heavy, those who are not included on the top 100 receive less than 200 points while the top players or teams get closer to the full 1000 points.

In addition, multipliers are included to the flat point distribution, which varies by event difficulty or importance. It is possible for a cash cup to have a 1x multiplayer, while a World Cup qualifier has a 10x multiplayer. Basically, winning a cash up would be worth 1000 points while winning a World Cup qualifier is 10000.

Lastly, a balanced time decay system has been introduced. It is the only method to consistently make sure the Power Rankings displays the top current players. 4 months after a tournament ended, decay stars. It begins by cutting up 10% of the points from the event. Each month, that percent slowly increases until 10 month passes. After 18 months, the whole tournament is deleted from power rankings calculations.
