Today I want to introduce to you a project called "
What is it?
First of, this website isn't new, exactly. We launched the Beta site back in September 2018 – but until now we haven't posted about it on Reddit. The idea behind the site is simple. We want to create a place for players to get their name out there, and for teams to find any potential players. We have over 2000 registered players who are Diamond 1+ on the EUW SoloQ ladder. The majority of these players have been put together by our ever growing team of LoL Esports experts. Our team is made up of people who work for Esports organisations in Management, Coaching, Social Media and more. Our goal is simple. We want to make the EU Amateur and Professional scene stronger.
How does it work?
All of the data on the site is manually entered by members of the team. However once the data is entered everything else is automatically done with the Riot Games LoL API. We enter the players name, any relevant social media and create a profile. After that, we enter an account name which fetches the account through the API and connects it to the profile. From there it begins to track the following:
- Current Rank
- Peak rank
- Rank Tier Graph
- Any name changes
- Win rate
You can see an example of a profile
Now I'll break down all the features & how it works
First up, the ladder system. The ladder takes all of the information we enter and the Riot API gathers and creates
this. The default ladder ranks players from highest rank, to lowest rank – just like the in-client soloQ ladder. However, the ladder on our site is far more complex. The features included are:
- Players 'Pro' name
- The role they play competitively
- Current Rank
- Games on their main account / highest ranking
- Win rate
- 'Total Games' – total amount of games across all the accounts they have registered to their profile
- Any team they currently play for will be displayed
On the Ladder system we also have extremely extensive 'filters'. Here are some of the main ones:
- Region – Filter through all of the 'European Regional Leagues' (ERLs) as well as LEC, Turkey and Russia. This filter will show you players who play in that region / have residency in that region (Also currently featuring an 'EU Masters' filter!)
- Country – Filter to show players from a specific country
- Role – Choose which in-game role you want to see the list of players for
- Team – You can select to see the players for over 100+ teams across Europe, the LEC, Turkey, Russia and NA.
- Ladder Order – You can filter the ladder to display players by their Rank, games played, Win rate and peak ELO.
Next up is the
player profiles themselves. The features of these are:
- Their rankings among others registered to the site. You can see how they rank Globally, by their role, by their country and by their role in their country.
- Their current & peak ELO
- All of the accounts they have registered with us
- All of their summoner name changes on any and all of their accounts
- Direct links to their Twitter, Twitch, Leaguepedia and OPGG profiles
- A detailed ranking history graph
- The team they play on (If applicable)
If you're looking for a player but don't know their summoner names? Find them by searching for their pro name. Or on the flip side, you know the account name of someone but don't know who it is? Search their account name and it'll show who they are if they are registered with us! Most of the ladder filters are also applicable to the search function
Finally, we have the teams list. Here you can see an alphabetically organized list of all the teams we have registered on the site. Each team will also have a profile. On this profile you can see the following:
- Current & Previous Players with a link to the profile of the players
- Their social media links
- Their website
- The date they joined the team / left the team
- The ability to automatically build a Multi OP.GG of all the players on the active roster
Here is an example of a team profile
There are a lot more smaller features but to avoid making this a short story I will leave those out.
About the people behind the site:
The project was originally started by myself and my friend 'Chypriote'. He's an insanely talented developer and is responsible for every line of code on the website. Outside of this site we both work in Esports Management for teams in Europe. Since inception we have added several people to the team including 'Region Managers' (People who are very knowledgeable about a region and gather data for that region', a designer, community manager and much more. Currently everyone works voluntarily and the website is entirely self-funded.
There's a lot more to come and we have huge ambitions for the site and other future projects (One of which will be our own live game search)! We really hope you like the website and would love any feedback on it. It's not perfect and there are some bugs which we don't catch. If you see any, let us know!
