VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 25, 2021 / YDX Innovation Corp (TSXV:YDX)(OTC PINK:YDRMF)(FSE:APY1) ("YDX" or the "Company"). Purple Mage Advisors, a subsidiary of YDX Innovation, is pleased to announce the implementation of its Purple Mage Metric (PMM) for League of Legends (LoL), in collaboration with Mobapool's upcoming League of Legends challenge. The PMM was created by Purple Mage as an industry standard measurement for ranking player performance and efficiency. Similar to a quarterback rating (QBR) in American Football or Wins Above Replacement (WAR) in Baseball, the PMM aims to measure player performance by analyzing key in-game metrics. These metrics are analyzed and then computed into a score which is used to rank players amongst their peers.
The Mobapool League of Legends challenge is a fully online and free to enter esports event with a $1,000 prize pool. Mobapool has partnered with Amuka Esports to provide the best League of Legends talent from the region. The event will be held on February 13th, 2021 at 3:00pm EST with a 5v5 tournament format, hosting eight teams. The tournament is a round-robin style with the top four teams advancing to the semi-final stage, where the championship match will be a best-of-three format. Viewers can follow along with tournament and vote on match winners using the Mobapool app.
The integration will work by displaying the PMM score below the name of each player on the head-to-head matchups within the Mobapool app. The PMM will help participants decide which player is more efficient and help Mobapool with deciding their head-to-head parings. This is the first time that Purple Mage will be deploying their PMM at a live esports event. "Having our PMM integrated into the Mobapool League of Legends challenge is a big step towards implementing a standard measurement of player performance across the esports industry," said Arnoldas Dogelis, President of Purple Mage.
"We are thrilled to launch the Purple Mage Metric ahead of schedule and to showcase it with great partners like Mobapool. Creating the standard measurement of player performance is an ambitious goal and is critical to start adopting it in events and start connecting with the gaming community. We look forward to a busy year for Purple Mage and the exciting possibilities with so many online tournaments and partners that could benefit from our services." Stated Daniel Japiassu, CEO of YDX Innovation.
