First off, I wanna mention that Raigan had already posted about a similar idea that they are working on.
I do not know if this idea is realistic at this point, but I am just throwing it out there.

So, the idea.
A new option will be added to the main menu, this option will be called something like "Ranked".
Ranked got a main stand-alone leaderboard, more on that later.
Everyday, a new level will be added to the ranked playlist, this level will stay active for 7 days, this means that at every given time, 7 levels will be active and playable.
In these 7 days, players will be able to climb the level's leaderboards on these levels, however, they cannot watch the replays of other players, the reason for that is to keep it a true competition of who can find the best route + who can execute that route the best.

After these 7 days, the level will be deactivated. And at the same time, all 20 players will receive points:
0th - 20 points
1st - 19 points
2nd - 18 points
And so on...

All points that a player receives will be counted towards his/her total amount of points. That's where the main Ranked leaderboard comes in: here, players will be ranked by the total amount of points they have gained from playing the ranked levels.

A new level everyday seems like a lot of work though, maybe a new one every 3 days would be fine as well? Or let the community submit maps? Not sure.

This kind of works like a built-in 'NPoints competition' people who play Nv2 probably know what I'm talking about :)

So, what do you think?

Sounds really awesome. I'll get the PS4 hooked up to internet soon, so I can play online.

Great suggestion.

It still sounds like too much work, I'd go for a level a week, so you have several days to notice the new level, elaborate a route, execute it properly... as well as room for competition. More than that is too much work to keep it continuously.

Good point, less levels needed (and thus less work) + more focus on one level for the players.
Maybe Mare & Raigan could verify some level creators to create levels specifically for this mode as well.

While we are talking about competition, I would like to see NHigh-like features instead. Amount of 0ths, top20s, TLS, this kind of stuff. And leaderboards for these measures, of course. Somehow the infinite points grind score thing doesn't sound appealing to me.

Or, you know, speedrun mode.

Sorry if offtopic.

Yeah this is of course an absolute must, it's what makes highscoring what it is. It's also what helped create the highscoring community, even when it was being done manually.

They could create additional weekly, monthly, yearly leaderboards.

Ofcourse, this would be an even better idea, but since I heard they (M&R) were talking about this daily/weekly level thing. I just wanted to expand that idea a bit.

Yeah, but even more problematic would be the saturation. I envision people becoming less interested when there is more turf to fight over.
