Powered by AWS
Leaderboards & Tournaments is powered by a set of micro-services built on the native AWS platform. You can integrate REST APIs into your game to take advantage of Leaderboards & Tournaments while maintaining complete control of gameplay and UX for your apps. There are no restrictions on development platform, operating system, surfaces, or screen sizes.

Leaderboards & Tournaments supports leaderboards, leagues, teams, and multi-round competitions and gives you the flexibility to create custom events, such as local and regional competitions.
Encourage repeated sessions with leaderboards. Leaderboards & Tournaments' standard leaderboard format ranks players to achieve the highest score they can while playing the game. The player with the highest score at the end of the competition will be crowned the winner. Leaderboards & Tournaments also allows for developers to rank their leaderboards using custom-defined stats which keeps competition fresh, giving players a reason to come back and play more.
Engage fans longer and allow them to qualify with multi-round competitions. Top players in each round advance to the next round of gameplay and the winner of the final round becomes the reigning champion. Great examples of this are our Champions of Fire and Mobile Masters tournaments!
Rather than ranking players based on a score within a game, rank players by the number of wins (or any other metric) over a given time period. Award top players at the end of each league.
Support competitions with teams, guilds, clans, alliances, and more. A leaderboard with team names and scores will keep the competition going.
