Like for example as how they do in all those gaming franchises

In my opinion, competitions should definitely be conducted, but I don't like the idea of global ranking after solving weekly problem sets. I think it may make users desperate to solve problems and instances of cheating will increase manifold. One should solve the problems for the love of the subject not to get any prize or reward.

I believe Brilliant should have a live-action competitive game that users can join by using two or three points. The game can pit users against each other kind of like The American Math Challenge, except instead of the seasonality of the Am. Math Chal., Brilliant's game would always be on. And user can get five or ten points for coming out on top in their individual game rooms.
This would definitely make Brilliant pretty fun after finishing the week's questions and milling through the blogs and discussions.
dude, math and physics is not gaming. only some games involve rational thinking.eg:chess
when the topic is of online competitions , one can alwaysss cheat!
I also agree with gautham
