It calculates how well you did on the map and the difficulty of the map in a similar way that tp does, and if the system calculates that getting a B/C on a very hard map is worth more than some of your other scores, then the ones you got B/C's on will be in your top performance. So yes, you could say it was because you didn't have any other better scores. You don't need to rank sub-1000 in a song for it to be in your top rankings, majority of my maps in top rankings aren't. As far as I know, it has nothing to do with how well you stack up against other people, it's all calculated based on the difficulty of the map, mods and how well you did.

I've read that pp is whole, but I could be wrong. I would also prefer if it was like this.

Even if we earn 1pp over 52'873, it's better than not seeing the 0.1pp over 5'287 imo
