Which of the following do you want to see on a leaderboard?

Comparing my current performance to my past performance
Comparing my performance to the performance of my friends or guild
Comparing my performance to the best players ever
Comparing my performance to the total range of player performances
I’m not interested in Leaderboards
Something else, I’ll tell you in the forums

I voted Comparing my performance to the total range of player performances. I'm never going to be a top 10% player, but I get curious sometimes about how I am faring vs what others are accomplishing. Not so much from a competition point of view, but more of a 'what areas could I be doing better at?' point of view...

I voted for "I'm not interested in leaderboards". Never really been very competitive, least of all with gaming. I don't mind other people comparing scores, it's just not my thing. I'd rather focus on character-driven narratives and interesting power combinations/fun gameplay/immersive storylines. I'll let the more serious gamers focus on numbers, ranks, and leaderboards.

I went with the following two

Comparing my performance to the total range of player performances

I’m not interested in Leaderboards

Truthfully I’m not interested. But if I ever do stand at one of the leaderboard I’d like to see where I stand with everybody else.

I'm not particularly bothered about leaderboards. I probably wouldn't even look at one.

If everyone were like me, it would be a waste of coding :)

I've becoming a lurker lol.. I'm still reading forums at least every couple days, but I haven't been responding much.

Leaderboards are built into UE4, which is probably the only reason they are considering them. They just have to decide what parameters to set and they could be easily put in a menu system.

Well in that case put them all in. I don’t care but if it doesn’t cost a lot of time or programming do it. I might not care but I know other people do

I dunno leaderboards to me is a kin to looking over at the guy at the next urinal.

Sure I can understand curiosity (not talking sexual) but really what does it serve?

Off the analogy, as long as your having fun who cares?

Yeah, I voted that I'm not interested. That seems to be the consensus among the group here. But I also agree with Golden Ace in that if they are easy to do, go for it. Some people will want them, and if I'm not forced to look at it, it doesn't have an effect on me at all.

For the most part, "I’m not interested in Leaderboards"...However..."Comparing my performance to the total range of player performances" makes most sense since players can see if theres room for improvement if they're the competitive type.
