Heroic Mode High Scores

edited November 2013 in MPQ General Discussion
Maybe I'm just doing something wrong, but I've noticed the high scores on heroic mode are sitting up close to 4000 points. I've completed ask the missions and have been working my way through replaying the high end missions until they are no longer available and still have yet to crack 2000. With all the rest if the missions offering 1-5 points each I don't see how it's mathematically possible to get that to that high score mark. Is this actually legit or is this being exploited? Am I missing something?

  • Perhaps your game is bugged because the high-ends are repeatable and give ~20-30.

    Even the Imposter mission with lvl 69 Daken and two H.A.M.M.E.R. goons gives out 20 points in my bracket (it was 10 points when I started farming it, guess I am in a slow bracket, hehehe). The last Rag mission (Who is This Clown), which I haven't finished yet, gives 188 points at this moment...

    The repeatable version of Who Is This Clown gives out 34 points in our bracket, which makes it fairly silly in my opinion - Imposter twice is easier and likely faster.

    Lol. I'll stick with Imposter. I've heard there is a secret prize at 10K. Who's up for a race? icon_e_wink.gif

    That would be hilarious. At the rate we're going, though...it almost wouldn't surprise me if somebody got there.

    Yeah, there's a 3-way race for the top two spots in our bracket. Two of them are already above 6k.

    I'm calling it a day at 4500 and a top 4 spot. Very curious about my rank tomorrow morning. Probably out of the top 10. It's a pain that this tourney ends at 6 am where I live.
  • funny like we're trying to compete for no reward..past 3000 icon_mrgreen.gif . last day would be hilarious. i used to freak out at impossible mission back when i'm still new to this game. now pve is the easiest battle compared to tournament
  • I just put myself 1000 higher than the nearest competition (4136) so I can see them coming if someone makes a run at me. I can zerg down Imposter extremely easily with my 72 C Storm/bait combo. I can usually finish a round in 45ish seconds and load up another in about 10.

    It's kinda lame though, I'm not even playing Puzzle Quest with this combo. I barely actually match gems. Some rounds end after a triple Elemental Barrier before Thor can even start spamming Mjolnir's Might.
