MyArcadePoints is a WordPress Plugin which is able to create simple site wide leaderboards with best players on your MyArcadePlugin powered WP Arcade site. It will help you to keep visitors on your site and to make your site even more attractive.
On each game the plugin will award points to the Top 10 players.
When a logged in user submits a score, he will get a specific amount of points, depending on the place he achieves. Users will earn points only for the first 10 places on each game. On MyArcadePoints settings page you can set how many points users will get for each place.
Default point table:
1. Rank – 10 Points
2. Rank – 9 Points
3. Rank – 8 Points
4. Rank – 7 Points
5. Rank – 6 Points
MyArcadePoints has a built in Leaderboard Widget which you can place on any sidebar.
Furthermore there is a shortcode available [myarcadepoints_leaderboard] which allows you to display the leaderboard table on any WordPress page or post. It’s easy to customize trough CSS and WordPress Hooks.
The plugin will update the leaderboard automatically when new score gets submitted.
On WordPress User administration page you are able to adjust points for each user manually.
If you have BuddyPress installed, MyArcadePoints Plugin will display the current points on users profile page.
How the plugin works in detail?
Let’s say there are 2 users (Bob and Steve). Both users have the same point balance: 100.
Bob’s current point balance: 100
Steve’s current point balance: 100
Bob plays a game and achieves the best score (e.g. 5000). For his achievement he will get 10 Points.
Now he has 100 + 10 = 110 Points on the sitewide leaderboard.
Later, Steve plays the same game and beats Bob’s score. He scores e.g. 6000 points. Now the global leaderboard will be re-calculated:
Deduct points from all users for this game. Currently there is only one user in the leaderboard (Bob):
Deduct Bob’s points for this game: 110 – 10 = 100.
Generate new leaderbord for this game:
Steve will get 10 points for best score
Bob will get 9 points for second place
Re-Calculate global leaderboard:
Bob: 100 + 9 = 109
Steve: 100 + 10 = 110
Global Leaderboard Ranking:
1. Place Steve with 110 Points
2. Place Bob with 109 Points
