The person with the highest overall score gets 1,000, the person with the lowest gets 1. After that, it depends on your rank and the overall number of people who have played a table. Getting Rank #500 on an actively played table (like Plants Vs Zombies) would get you a much higher value than getting Rank #500 on a table that not many people own or have replayed yet (like Street Fighter II).

    In my eyes, it's a much better system. This way, the high score in Spider-Man (306,806,000,000) and the high score in El Dorado (62,017,620) carry the same weight. You can't just play a single table like on the 360 Version and gather over 300,000 Pro Score from that one table. The maximum possible Pro Score is 26,000 (for now), and you have to own and master ALL of them to remain high in the leaderboards.

    Your Pro Score is dynamic. If several players compete in a table and beat your current high score, your Pro Score will drop because your rank on that table has been lowered accordingly. But if several new players compete in a table and do WORSE than your current high score, your Pro Score can increase even without you playing.


    Especially in the early days, I was hoping for an easy way to check on my "current status" of Pro Score for each table. Something that was once a 900 could easily drop to a 700 if I just happened to be one of the first people that played that table back on Tuesday or Wednesday, and most other people have been trouncing my score on their first attempt.
    Awesome I'm so glad Zen looked at this. Can't wait now for Pinball FX 2.5/3 where this will be implemented.

I think the old marvel hero score is easier to grasp cause it is total points for all your tables. I think im missing something here other than the 50 points. Can someone simplify the structure of pro score compared to hero score. Thanks.
    Pretty sure pro-score is based off of your best scores position on the Leaderboards.

    For example if you are ranked top 100 out of 1000 you might have a pro-score of 900 for that table.
    If you are bottom 100 out of 1000 you might have a score of 100 etc...

    At least that's how it seems to me.

    Hmmm... besides the leaderboards not that I can see.

    Pro Score By Table?

    Just checking - there's no way to see what your current Pro Score is on each individual table other than having it calculate at the results screen (after finishing a game on the table), right?

    Now that I've completed at least one play on each of the 26 tables, I figured that'd be a handy way to tell which tables I'm "below average" in - or which tables I THOUGHT I did well on but that was only because very few people had played them at that point.
