Patent 11291912 - Latency management in an event driven gaming network > Claims

  • 1. A geo-location computer-based game system that manages latency sensitive user created game events, the system comprising: at least one non-transitory computer readable memory storing software instructions and storing a notarized ledger; andat least one processor coupled with the memory and configured to execute the software instructions to perform at least the following operations: measuring endpoint latencies over one or more networks to one or more endpoints;grouping, using the endpoint latencies, the one or more endpoints into at least two groups, wherein a first group has a first common latency range and a second group has a second common latency range;storing the first and second common latency ranges, information associated with the at least two groups, and information associated with the one or more endpoints in the notarized ledger;receiving at least one user created game event and storing the at least one user created game event in the notarized ledger;determining a required presentation time of the at least one user created game event based on the stored first and second common latency ranges and storing the required presentation time in the notarized ledger;determining at least one delay of the at least one user created game event to be sent to the one or more endpoints based at least on the required presentation time and on the endpoint latencies, and storing information associated with the at least one delay in the notarized ledger;sending, accounting for the at least one delay, the at least one user created game event and the required presentation time to the one or more endpoints; andenabling presentation of the at least one user created game event on the one or more endpoints at the required presentation time.
    • 2. The system of claim 1, wherein at least one of the endpoints in first group is a remote endpoint.
    • 3. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one user created game event comprises a reward.
      • 4. The system of claim 3, wherein the reward depends on at least one of the following: a user stat, a relative user stat, an event status, a previous data, a distance from event, a user participation, or at least one of the endpoint latencies.
      • 5. The system of claim 3, wherein the reward comprises one or more of following: a monetary reward, a team spirit item, and an enabled game format.
      • 6. The system of claim 3, wherein the reward depends on incentives-for-game-play data from the notarized ledger.
    • 7. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one user created game event includes one or more of the following: a kill event, a kill count event, a bounty event, a location event, a capture event, a location event, or a video game event.
    • 8. The system of claim 1, further comprising at least one display, wherein the at least one display is configured to present progress information associated with the at least one user created game event.
      • 9. The system of claim 8, wherein the progress information comprises one or more of the following: a reward to at least one user, a ticker, a score, a representation of the at least one user created game event, a portal, or party information.
    • 10. The system of claim 1, further comprising at least one GPS unit that provides timing information to trigger the presentation of the at least one user created game event at the required presentation time.
    • 11. The system of claim 1, further comprising at least one user input at the one or more endpoints, wherein the at least one processor further performs an operation of storing input from the at least one user input and metadata associated with the at least one user created game event in the notarized ledger.
    • 12. The system of claim 1, wherein the endpoint latencies are used to determine a number of users.
    • 13. The system of claim 1, wherein the one or more endpoints comprise one or more of following devices: a cellphone, a mobile phone, a tablet, a gaming console, a personal computer, a wearable device, and a laptop.
    • 14. The system of claim 1, wherein the notarized ledger comprises of one or more of the following types of ledgers: a blockchain-based ledger, a distributed ledger, a centralized ledger, and a peer-to-peer ledger.
    • 15. The system of claim 1, wherein the notarized ledger comprises AI training data related to game events.
    • 16. The system of claim 1, wherein one or more endpoints is associated with a user.
      • 17. The system of claim 16, wherein the user comprises at least one of the following: a game player, a game spectator, a creator of the at least one user created game event, an administrator, or a developer.
    • 18. The system of claim 1, wherein the at least one user created game event comprises an eSports event or a betting event.
    • 19. The system of claim 1, wherein at least one endpoint in the first group comprises a stream splitter for other endpoints in the first group.
    • 20. The system of claim 1, wherein the first common latency range and the second common latency range comprise different latency ranges.
    • 21. The system of claim 1, wherein the notarized ledger is stored in a different non-transitory computer readable memory than the software instructions.
