It's been a long time coming, but ArenaNet has officially launched their new leaderboard system
! Not only do we have leaderboards for sPvP, but we also have them for WvW and achievement points:
We want our leaderboards to be more than just a place to stare in awe at the top players in the game—we want to give you a place to see the pulse of the game as a whole and better understand your part in it. To start down this path, we’re launching leaderboards to cover three main categories of play in the game: Player vs. Player (PvP), World vs. World (WvW), and Achievements. We’re starting with the top 100 users in PvP and Achievements, but over the next few weeks we’ll ramp this number up and add some different ways to slice the data to help you get the most relevant information possible.

ArenaNet says they won't divulge the rating formula, but that it is based on certain criteria, including:
- Rank – Current position in standings based on PvP rating
- Wins – Total ranked PvP match wins
- Losses – Total ranked PvP match losses
- Win Percentage – Percentage of ranked PvP match wins out of total ranked PvP matches played
Not anything new here - the leaderboards are based on the same world rankings system as before. And as before, we'll continue to have updated rankings each week:
- Rank – Current position in standings based on world’s rating
- Rating – World rating based on our implementation of the Glicko-2 algorithm
- Deviation – Degree of certainty for the current rating. Higher number means more confidence in the rating.
- Volatility – Degree of expected fluctuation in rating. Lower numbers indicate stable ratings, while higher indicate erratic behavior.
Achievement rankings are based on total achievement scores.
