I've seen Doom being a thing on CC and I am wondering if there is a way to make a game like Starcraft with multiplayer or online leaderboards within the restrictions of CC.

Technically yes - there's been a couple of projects like jamROGUE and Tron which have multiplayer capabilities (the former using HTTP long polling, the latter websockets).

Obviously there's a big difference between ComputerCraft providing the capabilities to do it though, and it being feasible in practice. A simple Starcraft clone is probably still in the bounds of feasibility, but I suspect getting something like Doom running in a multi-player setting, at a decent latency would be nigh-on impossible.

Anything is possible. CC is capable of running just about anything, it just depends on how long you want to wait for actions.
