I am making a strategy game similar to chess for Android.

I want to implement a sort of ranking system, that the player can actually lose score, similar to the one in www.chess.com.

But, from the docs of submitScore():

"The score is ignored if it is worse than a previously submitted score for the same player."

I don't understand how can I implement such a system with Google Leaderboards.. sorry if I'm missing something obvious here.

• I'd look into the ability to remove the score of a player. Then you can simply do a remove, and add the new lower score. – MichaelHouse Sep 4 '15 at 0:15
• I actually already did, but unfortunately, the only thing I found was the possibility to completely hide a player's score. (via the REST API) :( – fluxi Sep 4 '15 at 0:21
• I wonder whether the Swarm allows this (the docs say nothing - www.swarmconnect.com). – fluxi Sep 4 '15 at 0:22
