Agree with all this. It provides data and it's up to you to interpret it.
I often look people up and consider the sample size, the % late and mid-late finishes and then have a look at wins and such.
You will find some people with good ROI who have 1 big win and other than that would be losers, but still have good other stats, you also find those who just got lucky one day.
I always look by "Full tracking"
The rankings are a shorthand way of interpreting the data based on the last 120 days, and by calendar year. They are what they are. They do however take some account of things like buy-in, % ITM, field size etc so aren't just by payout or ROI and decent repeated performance does put you above a lot of the got luckys.
