Previous Match Results UI Concept 
(2017 on Playstation)

As a battle royale game, Fortnite Battle Royale features up to 100 players, alone or in squads of up to four players.

 

Attempting to be the last player alive by killing other players or evading them, while staying within a constantly shrinking safe zone to prevent taking lethal damage from being outside it.

 

Players must scavenge for weapons and armor to gain the upper hand over their opponents.

 

The game adds the construction element from Fortnite; players can break down most objects in the game world to gain resources they can use to build fortifications as part of their strategy. *

Current Match Results

These match results are important to some player groups, many of which are competitive with teammates when playing in Duos (2) or Squads (up to 4). The specific categories that are measured create numerical validation for the efforts made throughout the match.  Being the leader in any one of these categories is worth boasting about to fellow squadmates, especially after a Victory Royale. 
The Final Match Results are currently a newer feature that many players forget to check (or may not be aware of) prior to exiting back into the lobby screen.
 
These results are a player's stats for the match and cover several different stat categories. A player can only see these stats at the end of their match by pressing the "square" button on the Playstation 4 controller.
 
Once a player exits the game and goes back to the lobby they no longer have access to these match statistics. 
 
From research, it seems there are many players who, by habit, exit back to the lobby before checking in on their contribution (or lack thereof) to their groups performance. 
 

Design Opportunities

Create a way to allow players to retroactively view their previous match stats from the player profile menu.

 

Expand upon the match stats by adding new information categories that will tell the larger story of the previous match, not just the direct result.

 

Display trackable stats that can allow players to learn from potential mistakes in their overall gameplay.

Design Constraints

Must follow the current UI design that Epic Games has established.

 

Must contain information that is already being tracked by the games' engine, making it easier to implement in future updates.

Must be information that will be beneficial to players. not just reporting stats for the sake of stats.

A players' journey to the 'post-match results' page begins on their PROFILE page.

 

This page already tracks several player statistics and is an ideal home for this addition.

Addition of a "Previous Match" button to the main statistics card of the player profile menu.
This button toggles on the new "Previous Match" results screen
New Previous Match Page
The new "Previous match" screen which includes:
Match statistics/xp (top left), Filter (middle left), Match results (bottom left), Battle Map (center), Match Damage (right)
 

Each new element in the "Previous Match" page can provide a player with more specific information: below is a breakdown of each and their added benefit. These benefits can range from learning opportunities to ability to gloat to friends and teammates.

STATISTICS
 
This is a breakdown of a players' Score and Experience points earned in the previous match.
 
Points are awarded for survival time, getting a kill, any additional kills, placement and any bonuses that may be active.
 
These points correspond to a players level during any given season.
FILTER
 
This section allows players to filter through previous matches of all the separate game modes:
-Solo
-Duos
-Squads
-LTM (limited time mode)
As well having the ability to toggle off this entire screen back to the main profile page.
MATCH RESULTS
 
This section allows players to see the information they may have directly missed at the end of the match, by exiting to lobby too quickly.
 
With a variety of stat categories, this is the accumulation of all the tracked information a player would want to know, being able to compare it to previous efforts. 
 
BATTLE MAP
 
The White line defines the route/path the player has taken throughout the match, from start to finish.
 
The numbered stars represent each "battle" or encounter they had with another player. These numbers correspond to the "Damage Dealt/Damage Taken" section to its right. 
DAMAGE DEALT AND TAKEN
 
This section shows a breakdown of each battle had with other players.
 
Showing how much damage dealt to other players and damage taken from other players. 
 
Each number corresponds to a specific battle star from the battle map section.
Clicking R2 will show how much damage was done or taken with a specific weapon during that particular battle.

In a game like Fortnite Battle Royale, there are so many different factors that come into play when obtaining the goal of a Victory Royale. This new addition to the game's current stat tracking and the profile will allow players to not only see the whole story of their previous matches but an opportunity to learn what areas of gameplay they may need to work on for the future in their attempts to get that sweet Victory Royale.
