For example, in one level, my highest score was '96,850' and then I got a better score of '98,570'. So that means my score for this particular level should be increased by '1,720' points.

However, when I check my rankings, I found that my total score (for Pig Bang only) was only increased from '1,925,475' to '1,926,145', which is an increase of '670' points.

There are other situations where I got a better score of about '600' points but the total increased only by about '400'. All the scores were taken as snapshots on the new iPad, so I can do calculations with good accuracy. Does anyone know why the scores increase differently?

Update: After some more playing, I just noticed that the Pig Bang level says I have a score of 1,961,015, with 90 stars out of 90 stars obtained, while if I go to the Rankings of Game Center, it says my score for Pig Bang is 1,959,240 -- and this score was updated as soon as I got higher score in one level, so it looks like this score is very up to date. But why different from 1,961,015?

looks like a bug to me –  z - Mar 29 '12 at 1:36
    
Which version are you running, Android or iOS? Not seeing this behavior in iOS, but just tried a real quick test. –  Doozer Blake Mar 29 '12 at 2:13

I just tried it and I couldn't reproduce, but it was just a quick test –  z - Mar 29 '12 at 2:39
    
Have you tried summing your scores and comparing them to the total? –  Matthew Read Mar 30 '12 at 2:47

I think that the problem is your looking at ranking. Because when you score a new highscore, you get a little higher on the ranking list. There is a difference in the highscore list and the ranking list. Ranking is your current position out of all the people who play the game. I hope this helped.
