Let’s say that the maximum amount of points a player can get in one round is 800. Different rounds have different amounts of players, which changes the difficulty. I use the formula points*amountOfPlayers to calculate the final score. Here are some examples.

In Round 1 (2 players) the winner scored 450 points totaling 900. In Round 2 (4 players) the winner also scored 450 points, which totaled 1800. The Round 2 winner will be ranked higher on the leaderboard.

Here’s another example. In Round 1 (2 players) the winner scored 450 points totaling 900. In Round 2 (4 players) the winner scored 50 points, which totaled 200. The Round 1 winner will be ranked higher on the leaderboard, but I think Round 2 was more difficult. However, I also think that the Round 2 winner did pretty bad even though it takes more skill to win against 3 other players than 1.

So, should I sort the leaderboard by points*amountOfPlayers? Or should rounds with fewer players be automatically ranked lower?
