A new website known as "Apex Ranked" has surfaced, giving Apex Legends fans a place to find out who the best performing players in their game are.
Knowing your opponent is half the battle when looking to achieve any kind of victory—even in games like Respawn Entertainment's Apex Legends. Now, that crucial search is easier than ever before thanks to iLootGames, streamer and content creator, with the unveiling of their live leaderboard tool, Apex Ranked.
Here's how it works.
'Apex Ranked' Site Allows Fans to Find Highest Scoring Players
According to Dexerto, iLootGames created the site to because of the need for "a clean, simple, and very accurate source for people’s rank."
"What I did was used the internal API system to grab 100% accurate rankings that update every 5 minutes," they said.
Despite the board's recent launch, it is still a remarkably useful tool that ranks a player's name, last played Legend, current RP total, and RP gain within the last day. Additionally, each listing has a link to the player's corresponding Twitch channel if available and indicates whether they are currently streaming.
Even the act of mousing over certain elements provides extra information. For example, hovering over a user's current ranking tells players what their last place was. A simple click brings up a line graph tracking that player's rank over time. Meanwhile, placing the cursor over their name gives players their other known in-game aliases.
"The goal is to expand to a site that covers every detail about the ranked grind, helps people promote themselves, and allows for friendly, accurate access. Maybe soon we will even be able to host fun private tournaments where you see the top 100 preds in the world all face off in anti-meta games," said iLootGames.
The tool also has Twitch streaming counterparts, as noted at the bottom of the site. After all, the point of it all is to help support the streaming community by "eventually giv[ing] every stream access to their stats through StreamElements and Nightbot."
