Been trawling the forums looking at what is the better option between firebase and mysql but am still confused.
I want a log in system (username/password)
And a database of stats (mostly numbers)
So each user would log in and get their game profile/money/stats (some of this could be locally saved)
Game would be mostly text but players can attack each other whether online or offline therefore i'd need a database of players level/weapon/armour/health etc.. so when a button is clicked it would give a list of players at a certain level, and when attacked their stats would go against the attackers stats.
So basically my question is what would be the better option for storing these stats and retrieving them.
I've played around with RexRainbows firebase plugins, and got a login system working flawlessly but when it came to storing and retrieving player data i couldn't get it to work. so i will spend some time learning one of the two options but wanted a little advice on which would be better suited for my needs.
Thanks in advance.
