Seems like it really doesn’t have one. There is no baseline for comparison anymore, so while someone may be sitting in 250th place, that does not mean much, since they probably have lower level dinos and are matched with lower power teams - yes, winning and earning trophies, but not against the top players who used to be up there. Wasn’t that the point, really? Ranking the top players? Dart, evolve, practice, build a team and climb the ranks?
I have no solutions, just making an observation… They should just eliminate the leaderboard and hide the trophy count, because it really doesn’t mean squat anymore.
