We have wanted this feature forever. This is another example of something we just couldn’t do sensibly on Google AppEngine. Windows Azure with MVC3 and Razor make this feature so terrifically simple and great. We are so happy to finally have consistency in the look and functionality across all of our leaderboards: both real-time in-game and persistent for post-game.
This also addresses a number of requests we’ve had over time to have “better Frenemies views.” As you can see, we now show you “information about you” at the top, then Frenemies, Top players, and Players Near Your Rank across all of our leaderboards. In the Top Players’ leaderboards, you need to be in the top 2500 players to get listed. In the “Best of” leaderboards, you will show if you played.
We sure hope you like this improvement. This has been an impossible dream for some time, so we are really happy to release this now. Thanks for listening,
