Multiple Leaderboards (Leaderboard Sets)

I am finishing up a project with several modes. I want each mode to have a leaderboard. Should I create a leaderboard set in itunes connect? Or should I just have different rules for posting scores and displaying leaderboards? Thanks

    @bktennis12 I was looking into this same idea! I was thinking about setting up different leaderboards with iTunes Connect that correspond to the mode a user chooses...

    Any thoughts on if this is the best route for this is?

    I am just going to set up a different leaderboard id for each mode in my game. Then when the player beats their high score I post that high score to the corresponding leaderboard. If they are playing a particular mode and hit the see leaderboard button I display the leaderboard corresponding to that mode. It would be nice if I could input a leaderboard set id somewhere in gs but I think that would call for gs staff adding a new behavior.

    Also, does anyone know if I should post every score to a leaderboard or only post when the player beats their high score?

    It's good game practice to post their high score.

    @bktennis12 Yeah, like @Franto said, I think it's best to display their highest overall scores.

    Do you know if this possible? Rather than the user pressing a button opening Game Center each time to see where they are placed on the Leaderboard...Is it possible to pull their score info from Game Center and display it inside the game else where, without having to open Game Center each time?

    Umm, just save the scores into a table and display that wherever you want. Game Center is displaying whatever score you tell it to from an attribute.

    @Lovejoy That sounds like a good plan! I'll give it a whirl, thanks :)
