💯 Sorare New Scoring System Explained [UPDATED 2021]

Global fantasy football website Sorare  has announced that the new scoring system will be applied to all SO5 tournaments starting from gameweek 94 onwards  (August 28 - September 1, 2020). The changes are made to make the scoring more balanced for players of all positions aiming to increase demand for previously overlooked players. I will be taking a look at some of the new scoring aspects while providing a simplified scoring chart alongside the original that might seem overwhelming to some. 

 

According to Sorare officials, the main changes to the scoring system mean the following:

  • Almost all players now will be getting a game week score ranging from 0 to 100
  • Defensive midfielders will be evaluated more fairly so the best of them would compete with the best attacking midfielders in the game
  • The number of stats used to assess players’ performance is increased from 18 to 65
  • The average score for each position is now equal to 40 points
  • Defenders from now on will get a cleansheet if they play at least 60 minutes and their team doesn’t concede during this period of time

Player Overall Score on Sorare is the sum of Starting Score, Game Score and Accuracy Bonus

Now let's get to the corresponding charts (all courtesy of @mashulkin)

Player score

Player score is a sum of Decisive Score and All-Around Score.

 

Decisive Score

Decisive score depends on the most important actions of the player during the match.

Positive Impact Negative Impact
Goal Red Card
Assist Own Goal
Penalty Won Penalty Conceded
Penalty Save Error Lead to a Goal
Last Man Tackle 3 or more Goals Conceded (GK only)
Clearance off the Line  
Cleansheet (GK only)  

 

All the players start at Level 0. Each decisive action brings them up or down the score ladder. From Level 1 to 5 all the decisive scores are guaranteed, so if a player gets a negative all-around score, he will still get the player score equal to the decisive score at the current level.

Level Points Guaranteed
-1 15 -
0 35 (or 25 for coming on as a sub) -
1 60 +
2 70 +
3 80 +
4 90 +
5 100 +

All-Around Score

All Around Score is a more complex score calculated with the help of 65 different stats provided by Opta. Talking about complexity! I can already see stat geeks' mouth water.

The number of statistical features used by Sorare is much bigger than in conventional fantasy football games

The new scoring measures and evaluates pretty much every single action a player performs on the pitch.

Conclusion 

The changes will make the game more balanced, and best players of all positions will be fairly valued both in SO5 and in terms of their market value.

The main beneficiaries of the new system are probably the defensive midfielders

In the previous scoring system, attacking midfielders and forwards scored the most fantasy points. As provisional calculations show, the increase in the amount of covered stats put them on even ground with those who spend less time upfront.

It would be interesting to take a look at how defensive-minded players venturing forward and box-to-box midfielders will fare with the new scoring (UPD 2021: the box-to-box have definitely benefited from the change). All-around midfielders like, for example, Tomas Soucek (West Ham) and Blaise Matuidi (Inter Miami, taking into account the level of MLS clubs defense) could be very valuable elements for the future success in Sorare.

Do not forget about the full-backs. Now there are 15 stand-alone stats that evaluate only defenders' performance. Adding to that is that many full-backs often find themselves in the final third crossing the ball into the penalty box and shooting at times. Players like Alex Sandro (Juventus) or Ayrton (Spartak Moscow) should be in great demand on Sorare market (UPD 2021: in fact, it's the battling center backs that appear to have benefited the most with points for duels won and other defensive and passing stats contributing to this)
