I'd like to build an app for a currently existing online game that matches players together and allows them to compete in a ranking system. Winning matches will earn points, increasing rank and losing matches will decrease rank. APIs for this game exist so accessing data will not be an issue.

I am new to programming. I know some python and c++. I was hoping to get some recommendations as to where to start with an endeavor like this.
