Player Points

Player points, first implemented on April 15, 2014,[1] were a non-usable currency on Roblox, generally intended to display gaming skill. Players could earn them while playing certain games where it was scripted to give players points by either winning a round or achieving something. The clan point count and the player point system were completely removed on June 14, 2018.

Originally, player points were displayed on users' profiles, and there was a leaderboard page that ranked players and clans by the amount of player or clan points. Some people abused the player point system by creating places that would give users large amounts of free player points.

Leaderboard Removal

In November 2017, the "All Time" leaderboard section was removed,[2] causing some confusion among users. As of June 14, 2018, the leaderboard was removed,[3] essentially deprecating player points. However, players may still see themselves earning player points in certain games, since the script for receiving them can still be put into a game.
