I added Highscores 25,50,75 points as well an you can play it on Android and IOS.

There is on problem while adding the subcategorie all the run on the leaderboard are gone but on your profile the run is still there so please add them on the leaderboard again.

Thanks?

Btw you have to click "Set default for all runs without value" under the filter option so that they all get the default value to make them all appear.

Something has to be changed at the Highscore section... Higher score = worse rank.. 😃

@Spielpro Thanks 😃

@Mister_Ornicar Yes I think so.. I don't know what else you can be good at in that game

What's the big deal? If you don't like that categories, don't run them, it's that simple.

Something similar is happening in many other speedrun games. For example, there are categories like Any% and also World 1, world 2, world 3.... If you get a time in Any% you also get a time in all individual worlds. Are individual world categories useless then?

Do you really think there's something wrong with very short runs? Anyway, look at Crossy Road leaderboard, do you see a big difference?

I'm done arguing with you @Mister_Ornicar . I'm not the one deciding how leaderboard is supposed to look.

I like the small numbers, but actually bigger numbers like 250, 500 and 1000 would be cool 😮

Even though I don't run the game, I agree with @Mister_Ornicar . Basically, having multiple categories based off the same premise not only makes a board look unclean but it also encourages spamming runs.

What you could have, instead of the categories 25, 50, 75, etc. is instead have a category "Score%" and have subcategories under that be those categories we already have. That way, you're not cluttering up the board with these frankly arbitrary score limits and instead keeping those self-contained. And also, I would really take up @Aki 's suggestion and instead have bigger score goals instead of these trivial ones. Depending on how hard the game actually is, I would remove all points less than 100 and put higher amounts in. You may want to archive these boards for later instead of straight-up removing them. Having higher amount of points encourages users to test their skills and get better at the game rather than just giving up at 25. It doesn't feel like much of a speedrun if it lasts 10 seconds, but if it were instead to take maybe 5 minutes, that would require a lot more effort and feel much more rewarding. Also, it would validate your board a whole lot too.

This is speedrun.com. Having a high score category is nice, but it's not the forefront of attention, so I suggest putting that under miscellaneous.

(and for the record @SaturnRunsGames , you kind of are someone that dictates how the board looks).

If you want help enacting any of these changes should you choose to agree with me, contact me on discord and I'll help you out, although I imagine you guys should be fine.
