The Game Kit Programming Guide for iOS claims:

The number of different leaderboards allowed increases to 500 leaderboards per game when leaderboard sets have been enabled...Leaderboard sets offer developers the ability to combine several leaderboards into a single group.

But their example (see image below) implies that a single leaderboard is placed into multiple leaderboard sets. Is that the only way to be able to use the full 500 leaderboards? by combining the same leaderboard into multiple sets? I want to be able to have 500 unique leaderboards that are not duplicated between sets. Is this possible?

Leaderboard sets

I do not think you need to share leaderboards between sets to reach the 500 limit. Each leaderboard could be contained in only one set, for example.

Later in the same document you quoted, it says "You can define up to 100 different leaderboard sets for your game. Each leaderboard set can contain up to 100 leaderboards with a maximum of 500 leaderboards for your game. You choose which leaderboards are placed inside of each leaderboard set. Games that don’t use leaderboard sets are limited to 100 leaderboards."

I think that's pretty clear, but feel free to ask any follow-up questions!

  • \$\begingroup\$ I guess its pretty clear, they simply say 500 is the limit if using Leaderboard Sets and don't specify any restrictions so it must be the case. Thanks! \$\endgroup\$ Dec 13, 2013 at 4:31
