    I understand that the Leaderboards were only released very recently, but they appear to be fairly Buggy. So I decided to talk about two rather large ones here.

    Firstly, there appears to be little to no way of efficiently ranking people.

    I do not understand how with two players with stats far under that of dawsons are at the top of the leaderboards. and this is not a single time thing, this appears time and time again where players do not appear to be in the correct order of ranking according to their individual stats.

    Secondly.

    Basically, clicking on the button below the title of each stat that is supposedly to order the players according to that stat does absolutley nothing apart from seemingly scramble the players.

    I noticed this as well. Doesn't seem like a very good ranking system. But I'll throw that off as it being brand new and Donkie still needs to work out the kinks.

    In regard to your first comment the calculation is going to be kept private and is actually more accurate than you think. The player may not have any stats seemingly displayed that should rank him 'better' but there are underlying factors that do. Try not to think of it as 'leveling up.'

    It's possible for @Donkie to change the calculation of course but after he explained it to me I understand the current system.

    On your second note thanks for the report; I also see it 'scrambling' when i try to sort it currently.

    Just trust me on the fact that the level is pretty accurate to how good a player is and it is not based on the visible stats in the leaderboard (except for 1).

    The other is indeed bugs and will be fixed.

    Well now that I think about it, I'm in the top 25 so it must be working just fine.

    Considering the amount of players we've had since opening the server a little over a year ago your assumption is accurate.

    It mostly just worries me in how certain players are just skyrocketed to a high level and then gradually go down.

    If you understood the calculation you would see why that happens. There's an important factor of skill in the calculations that means new players could jump up to the top rapidly but cannot sustain that level of skill for very long.

    It's not all that easy to explain without making the calculation public but just understand that it's an accurate system based on skill.
