    Default Leaderboard Suggestion

    If/when Zen Pinball 3 comes out, I have a suggestion for a leaderboard. I've said before how chasing the Proscore leaderboard gave me extra incentive to play and added to the overall fun and how much I missed that aspect after the soccer table messed that up. I think it'd be cool to be able to see everyone's average table rank value (the 1000 max number for each table proscore is based on) and maybe also the their number of tables played. That way you could have a proscore/overall type leaderboard where everyone had a chance to compete, not just the people who own every table. I can't be the only one who enjoyed chasing the top scores on that and I think it'd add even more replay value to the tables.
    Of course, if this could be added to existing games that'd be even better, but I doubt that could happen.

    BTW, my average table rank value is 990.88, or was before I bought Women of Power last night. I haven't had a chance to really play them yet so I'm sure it's dropped since then. PS3/Vita btw. Maybe I'll start a thread for an informal leaderboard based on this if anyone shows interest.

    Thanks!

    Oh yeah, any word on if the PS4 versions proscore leaderboard is fixable or not? It's been broken for so long without any word on it that I'm guessing it's not fixable.

    I haven't heard yet about the PS4 proscore but thanks for the suggestions!

    Of course it's fixable, but it's a matter of wanting to do so. They have to choose between 2 evils:

    * Fix the leaderboards and end up with some angry people who bought all the soccer tables to get these scores
    * Leave it as it is, but making the current leadboard worthless.

    I'd prefer the first option, but then again: I didn't spend any money on buying multiple more or less identical tables to get a higher Pro Score.

    Is the PS4 leaderboard problem due to the soccer tables? It doesn't look like it is. I'm talking about how the top scores are millions higher than anything possible with how proscore is calculated.
