I was never a fan of it and here are some of my reasons

it was a pain to skip it when an app used it.
it caused a big delay in the app start
you're limited to what they offer
you couldn't have a global leaderboard for Android & IOS (I believe it runs on IOS too for a while but I don't know if there's a B4i lib for it)
probably blocked in China


I use my own leaderboard system instead which gives me full flexibility which is ofcours limited to my own knowledge.

I understand your point. Using a custom solution is something I consider. However, I would like to have a ranking for each level (180 levels in total). I think that my solution dont will suport the total requests. What do you think?

as written in your other thread it should work fine in both cases.

keep in mind that sql servers have query caching techniques to speed up similar lookups.
