Sorare Shares Updated Football Scoring Matrix
The update will be available from August 26 and will bring a balance to the current scoring system.
Matrix Will Bring Greater Improvements
Sorare has released updates on the scoring matrix following reviews and feedback from players. As of August 26, which is Game Week 300, these updates will be available, and Managers have a month to evaluate their teams, shop for transfer targets and adopt new strategies where needed.
The scoring matrix was updated with improvements that reward players' performance more accurately. This also saw a balance between center-back and full-back scores and a better scoring system for goalkeepers.
These changes ensure a similar score distribution across all the positions and that not stat is the majority, but all contribute a fair quota to the score. This Matrix will not affect the current score averages as 95% of new players will be within a +/- 2 point range of their present scores.
Overview of Major Changes
Initially, it was only possible to stack positive points. However, this new Matrix will feature two negative levels. Goalkeepers couldn't reach 80+ scores, weren't rewarded for accurate passes but were penalized for losing possession. Also, they weren't well penalized for conceding goals, especially when they lose more than three goals.
This new Matrix will ensure they're penalized 3 points for each goal conceded. In addition, it will reward successful final third passes with 0.5pt and accurate passes with 0.1pt. It will also increase points for goalkeeping actions. For Defenders, the Matrix will reduce the penalty for lost possession from 1 to 0.6 pt and increase the penalty for conceded goals from 2 pts to 4pts.
It will increase the bonus for attempted assists while reducing the bonus of accurate and successful final third passes. For Midfielders and Forwards, the Matrix will increase the bonus for interceptions won from 2 pts to 3 pts and duels from 0.5 pt to 0.8 pt.
This update is spread across all the positions in the team. However, it will only slightly affect the scores of Midfielders and Forwards, while Goalkeepers and Defenders will feel the greatest impact.
