Sorare – The Points Matrix and Entering Tournaments

Sorare – The Points Matrix and Entering Tournaments

The Sorare points matrix can be a complicated beast. However If you want to retain maximum utility it is imperative to make an effort to understand it. This Sorare Hub guide will introduce the Sorare Points Matrix and also the construction of tournaments.

Aside from collecting our favourite players on Sorare as collectibles; the utility of a player is created due to being able to enter tournaments. This creates the opportunity to win further players as prizes. There are numerous tournaments that can be entered each game-week; thus creating multiple opportunities each week to win further players if your team finishes within the prize bracket. Although, to understand how to finish as high up the tournament leaderboard as possible; understanding how players score points would be a great place to start.

The Sorare Scoring Matrix

  • Player Score (PS)
    • Calculated based on real life performances of the player during a game, ranging from 0 to 100.
    • This is further broken down in two further elements, Decisive Score (DS) and All Around Score (AA).
    • Decisive Scores are based on statistics that have a direct impact on the match result, such as a goal, assist or clean sheet.
    • All Around Scores are based on major statistics during a live game; these are less obvious to track than those used to calculate the Decisive Score.

The image below displays Mbappe’s Player Score Breakdown from a given game week.

  • Decisive Score: 70 + All Around Score: 18.3 = Player Score: 88

  • Card Score (CS)
    • Card Score is simply calculated by this simple formula: Card Score (CS) = Player Score (PS) x (1 + Bonus %)
    • Therefore, taking the card below and the score aScobove the Player Score (PS) would be 88 x 1.05 = 92.4.

  • Team Score (TS)
    • Team Score is just the total off all 5 Card Scores.
    • E.g. 60 + 55 + 55 + 50 + 40 = Team Score: 260
    • Team Scores are then compared to other participants to create a leaderboard.

Sorare Tournaments
