197 tournaments, 641 teams, 2.430 results and 6.775 ranking positions – e-Rankings expands to Dota 2 with a huge database. All you fans of Anti-Mage, Divine Rapier and Natus Vincere (or anything else) get a calculated World Ranking, a voted Community Ranking, a Quickrating game and lots of team profiles with detailed infomation about your favourite teams. How does it all work? Read on!
World Ranking: Calculated based on tournament performance
The key feature of e-Rankings is the World Ranking. It is calculated based on the tournament performance of teams. Each team receives points for finishing a tournament based on the category of this tournament. Events are sorted into six different categories based on prize money ranging from ‘Global’ with more than $100.000 to ‘Challenger’ with more than $500 prize money. The database currently consists of almost 200 tournaments from August 2011 to May 2014.
Community World Ranking: Rate teams and create your own ranking
Besides the calculated World Ranking there is another ranking: The Community World Ranking is based on the ratings of you, our users. You can rate each team from ‘Bad’ to ‘Pro’ which equals 1 to 4 points. The average values of all ratings of all teams create the Community World Ranking. Since there are not enough ratings yet, the current Community World Ranking is empty, but that will change in the future. You can rate teams directly in their profiles or multiple teams in our Quickrating game.
Quickrating Game: Rate teams and earn badges
I already mentioned the Quickrating game: It allows you to rate teams in a quick manner. By doing that you earn badges and user levels – the higher your userlevel the more features are unlocked. For example you can later on change your ratings or recommend your ratings to other users to help them evaluate teams.
Huge database: 200 tournaments, 650 teams and counting
Our database currently consists of almost 200 tournaments from August 2011 to today and contains the results of almost 650 different teams.
