What is GPI?

The Gamer Performance Index (GPI) is a set of machine learning algorithms that measure and evaluate your performance in eight crucial areas: Fighting, Farming, Vision, Aggression, Survivability, Teamplay Consistency, and Versatility. The results are presented in a visual diagram so you can immediately see your strengths and weaknesses, helping define your focus to improve your game.

“ Mobalytics is well positioned to become the new standard in esports analytics and the go-to source for gamers seeking to sharpen their skills,” Almaz Capital’s Daniil Stolyarov said.

Gamers can sign up for the beta invite to Mobalytics. There are current around 22000 people who have already signed up for the beta invite.

“The most important goal for now is to make sure that our algorithms generate meaningful insights and add value to the player experience,” Amine Issa, Mobalytics co-founder and chief scientist, said. “We want players to see themselves in the [Gamer Performance Index]. Only in that way will they trust the platform and rely on Mobalytics to up their game.”

“We believe that esports is an amazing field to apply a ‘Moneyball’ approach,” Mobalytics CTO Mykola Lobanov said. “In contrast with traditional sports where you need to create complex solutions to get data, esports data is readily available and actionable. With some intelligent manipulation, there is almost no limit on the amount of insights you can uncover.”
