Is there anything I can use alternatively to Roblox groups?
Like the Trello API and then use that to rank players or any other service.
Please link a video, thread or something to help me understand more if you have any clue on what I could use.

Well, I will need multiple groups because of the rank limits, the ranks cost and etc. It would be more practical to use something else.
Let's take café or army groups for example, staff have different ranks, but these ranks come from the Roblox group they used, could I achieve the same thing using something like Trello or anything else?

Ah, I guessed I missed that. Although I still have reasons to why its just more practical to use something else.

Unless you set up some sort of one-time password system to join a group or something, you'd need to do each manually, but if you used a data store you could have plenty of space for 50k+ member UserIds with numerical ranks (probably a pretty low estimate, just a nicely rounded number I knew would be well under the size limit). Just save their UserId as the key, and their numerical rank as the value.

You could use an external service with an API (like Trello), but you'll likely need to know a language besides Lua. I have no idea what they use, but Discord uses JavaScript for their bots if I remember right. Some services (like Discord) banned the Roblox domain for overuse, so you'd need to use a proxy server, which costs money if you don't want restrictions that are too heavy to be scalable.
