When I first started this game I noticed the leaderboards in different areas have matching scores. I could be wrong about some working differently than others. But particularly in golf, if someone gets a matching score, then it is sorted by alphabetical order and amount of letters/numbers/ symbols in a name.
Particularly I imagine that this being the case and for example if around 2 or more people get the highest score on a particular map, that any one of those people could just change their name to start with the letter A and stay as #1.
Ultimately I think it’s way more fair that the first person to ever get the highest score on any leaderboard should remain higher than all the previous matching entries.
