Hi guys/gals
You might have played (or not) my new level called Death Swamp. This level is of the highscore challenge type (as I call it), where skilled player can pull off crazy combos. I designed it carefully so I could have fun with a scoring contest. I made one back then when I created Crazy Train (another highscore challenge level) and it was good fun. So here's the details:

In the limited time of the contest, the person having the best score will win. It doesn't need to be the best score registered on the level, the competition is only between people posting on this thread. Of course, your score in the level = the proof of your performance.

So when does this begin? now and until August 28 (included).


Prizes:

1st place gets 800xp + a couple of objects from the level if you are interested.
2nd place gets 400xp
3rd place gets 200xp


Participating is easy, just practice the level and post your scores here. Explore well and look carefully, there's multiple ways to score points in that level. And most importantly, I hope you have some fun!

:)

My question is how do you know our scores reliably? I've noticed scoreboards to not update, revert back to old scores and other oddities.

I seem to have won every "death swamp" themed contest so far... so why not this one :p
Or maybe not, I totally suck at getting a high score

I was playing when comphermc was and I was so excited because i was gonna win! But then my highscores list updated and he beat me, like a baby. With a dirty mouth. Calling his mom a hag.

Yeah I noticed that there really are some server problems there. But times still seem to register, they just fail to present us the stuff. This is probably be corrected from MM's side. It happened before (oddly enough, right at a time when there was a beta soon to go on --- just like now).

So anyways, continue your practice and scoring, we will extent the contest if needed.

Question: what is your highest multiplier?

eagerneph
08-18-2010, 12:36 AM
Great contest! I'll definitely give it a go. Oh well if I don't win anything. I'll have given your level several plays anyway. :p

OneEyedBanshee

Question: what is your highest multiplier?

12x so far

I just got third and I mean there was some seriously silly deaths in there, missed some treasure, still have not found last sticker switch. It was the first time I actually bothered to finish and found out I got a sticker for more points so um yeah, expect to be off that top spot soon ;)

And boom no1! 25k

Oh boy, just got in tenth place over all last night. There are still some crazy high scores made by compherc and strangepom though! Multiplayer scores wont count I hope.

Strangepom

1 eye'd Banshee Has just stolen my thunder!!

ok you want to make it interesting???

where is the 3rd to last sticker switch? I know I have to be quick but I don't see the red X anywhere while riding the turtle.

RangerZero
08-18-2010, 10:44 PM
I don't know if the question is adressed to me but I prefer to not spoil where the X are. This is simply because it would give an edge to someone not reading the thread carefully. Exploring, observation is a legit way to maybe improve your performance. May the best player win! :)

WOW that is a mighty mighty score. I have just posted 24k still a little way to go

BTW found all stickers now

The scores you need for the top spot are not for mere mortals.

It requires amazing timing and absolutely no fear of swampy green death. 25k+ is what you need to aim for it is a really tough target!

Now that's what I am talking about. Things are getting exciting. I can personally break the 25k but I am really curious how far people can push over 25k.

OneEyedBanshee
08-19-2010, 05:36 AM
I'm positive I can beat 25k, there was deaths, missed gold etc. Imma try again later, beware!

Strangepom
08-20-2010, 01:05 AM
I broke 25K just... this one 'll to the banshee.

Ok I'll settle for 400xp

RangerZero
08-23-2010, 12:41 PM
I see that Banshee took back some small lead...

Do you have some steam left guys? ;)

Oh, I'm gonna try this in about a half hour...

Sounds like fun, and I know I'm pretty good at LBP's platforming, and with scores especially... :D

This is how I feel about this

I think I still own 11# but I will give it another shot even though it is so infuriating :p

eagerneph

I think, I'm gonna try again. I'm sure I've lost my spot in the contest by now.

RangerZero
08-28-2010, 02:39 AM
If someone makes a score Saturday (a top 3 score) please post and tell me so I can make sure the leaderboards are fine tomorrow night. I don't want to declare the winners on a faulty leaderboard...

RangerZero
08-30-2010, 02:11 AM
Ok, let's see if I have the same leaderboard as you guys. If I remember right, it might not be your exact score but I recall the order to at least be the right one. I would like you anyways to confirm the score you have if possible.

WINNER:

OneEyedBanshee - 25 337 !!


Second place:

Strangepom - 24 070


Third place:

Comphermc - 21 850


:) Congrats guys, the XP will be going your way soon.

Strangepom

Yes there is a leader board error but it doesn't change anything I got 25,036 ish

Nice job, you two. I have been beaten fair-and-square. :)

You held 3rd spot for a very long time so you did amazingly well too, you still get 200 xp (not that you need it!) I think it is more for the skill challenge of becoming an elite jumping sack more than anything.

If that was training I'm a little nervous about out 1st mission.

lol
I could make harder level than this. But in my humble opinion, it would cross the line where "hard" goes against "fun". Making a high difficulty level is a delicate balance.
