Back in March 2011 i started the following post: How to design a leaderboard?
Now my quiz game have been out for approximately a year and sold pretty decently. I am working on to update the game design and is again looking into the leaderboard design to make it better as i am not happy with it.
Currently i rate players on number of correct answers, which is not good as it does not consider things like number of games, difficulty levels etc. I also have "extended" stats behind the UITableView (Leaderboard).
- A player can play based on three levels of difficulty: hard, medium or easy
- Difficulty levels can be mixed between players in a game
- Each game can be one to six players, so there can be single games or duels
- Between 2 and 30 questions per game
As i am considering integrating Game Center Leaderboard i need to design a better rating system so i would like to ask for some ideas how to do the rating based on the above.
I am thinking about how much a point would be worth and what it includes.
