How does it keep tack

I just made my account and looked on the leaderboard and people with a fraction of the hours I got are above me. What is the app tracking, how fast the achievements were received?
Points are based on achievement rarity, if a game has lots of players but only a few manage to get all the achievements, the points for that game should be high. The hours of playtime doesn't affect or count for the leaderboard, on some platforms, people can also play and earn achievements while in offline mode.

I think, the profile refreshed a couple times in a day, and how fast the achievements being tracked here may vary depending on the platforms, but you can do manual scan.

At least that's what I know, I might be not 100% correct.
