How does Garry's Mod Rank servers?

I have always wondered how the infamous ranking system for servers has worked, some say its something as basic on your ping to the server, but other say its more of a larger and complicated algorithm which takes into consideration for the amount of players how have joined/left i a period of time and the performance of the server etc.

I have done a bit of googling and im yet to find anyone who has the answer. Wondering if anybody could enlighten me?

Thanks in advance,

You are a saint.


Can you explain wath value for best ! ?

Don’t really understand your question, but if you mean “What puts the server at the top”, you need a low ping, a map that most people have downloaded, no password, and a server with players on (as long as the server isn’t full).
