I'm looking to grab the total number of entries a leaderboard has so I can use that number for other features in my game. I'm not looking for the data from all of the entries at once, just the total number of them. I want to have a feature that lets you know if you are in the "Top 50%" or "Top 25%" and so on in a leaderboard to give you some context to how well you did. I also am breaking up the amount of entries shown on the screen into pages and I want to show how many pages there are (ex: Page 12 of 342).
If I can only get a ballpark estimate of how many there are would work ok as well. If there was actually 4,384 entries, but it estimates 4,000 or 5,000 entries that would be fine. I'm trying to let the player know roughly where they land in terms of all other players at least. I also know that things aren't precise after 1,000 entries so if it isn't possible to have more pages than the 1,000 entries allow or I even have to get rid of the concept of pages that is ok as well, just trying to see if it is possible.
