PUBG Lookup League Leaderboards
The league leaderboards are back! Here's what you need to know.
Back when PUBG introduced bots and their own leaderboard system the PUBG Lookup League was disabled while I figured out what to do about bots and to see how the official leaderboards were received. Since then there have been calls for more ways to grind and more competition. I'm happy to say that the updated leaderboards are live with some key changes.
Before we get started, you can follow me on Twitter @pubglookup for the most recent news and updates for PUBG and PUBG Lookup.
Leaderboards are available for Console players and PC (Steam) players.
Bot kills do not count towards your points.
This change is something that I'll monitor closely to see how it affects scoring. There are a few concerns with this change but it feels necessary. The main concern is that many players still see a lot of bots in their matches. These players will have an inherent disadvantage because they will see fewer players which will limit their ability to score points on the leaderboard. One option that is being considered is increasing the points-per-kill for player kills and adding lower points for bot kills. We'll have to see how the leaderboards play out in this scenario to know if a change is needed or not. I would love to hear your feedback.
How the leaderboard calculates points
The leaderboards are set to automatically calculate your recent matches. As you play, PUBG Lookup will monitor your player account and calculate points for matches you play during the leaderboard season. You can play as many matches as you can during the season to increase your odds of scoring well.
Your best 30 matches count toward your points
Points are calculated for each match you play. The top 30 of your highest point scoring matches will count towards the leaderboards. If you play 30 total matches, all matches will count. If you play 1,000+ matches, your best 30 matches will count. This setting is also subject to change to a higher number to allow for more matches to count towards your leaderboard points.
The scoring system
You can find detailed information about how points are calculated in the Rules and Scoring page. Here's what you need to know.
- 1 point per player kill. Each player kill you get will add 1 point to your match scorre. Bot kills do not count towards your score.
Placement points are awarded for top 10 players.
- 1st place : 10 points
- 2nd place : 7 points
- 3rd place : 6 points
- 4th place : 4 points
- 5th place : 3 points
- 6th place : 2 points
- 7th place : 2 points
- 8th place : 1 point
- 9th place : 1 point
- 10th place : 1 point
- 11th place and higher : 0 points
I am interested in your feedback
These leaderboards are what I consider a Beta release. I am excited to see how people use the leaderboards and what ideas players have to improve them. I will be monitoring the Bot vs Player kill rules and placement points. If you have feedback, please let me know either on Twitter @pubglookup or through the contact form.
Donations, Patreon support, and ad removals are very helpful
The leaderboard system adds a considerable amount of strain to the PUBG Lookup servers. This system is also a lot more complex than it might seem and has taken a lot of programming hours to get it up and running. I am very, very grateful to anyone who feels compelled to donate (via PayPal, with a credit card, via Venmo, and through Patreon) to help with the cost of servers and continued development. You can see all donation options for PUBG Lookup on the donate page.
If you've made it this far, thank you for reading! I love to hear from PUBG Lookup users so don't forget to reach out if you have comments, suggestions, or just want to say "Hi".
