A lot of games have a leaderboard and many players like the competitive aspect it brings. The problem is that it is rather annoying to implement, especially for global leaderboards that needs to be hosted on a database.
We think it would be nice if we implemented a pre-made leaderboard as an open source module/plugin for Godot.
This would mean that anyone could have global leaderboards but wouldn't have to think about the details behind it. We will style it in a nice way but will add modifiers for some things and since it will be open source, you will be able to customize it however you want if you like.
