    I don't think 26000 is the ceiling.
    I'm pretty sure there is something else feeding into that. Maybe multipliers or additional points for how many tables you're in the top 10% how many in the top 100% etc...

    Not sure it would do much good even if you had it, without knowing exactly how many people have played the table you're wondering about at that time.

    It's probably something similar to the idea of
    Pro Score = 1,000 - ((Current Leaderboard Rank) / (Overall Number of Players / 1,000))

    So if there's 10,000 people playing the table, and you're rank #883, you'd get
    1,000 - ((883) / (10)) = 911.7 = 911 (Rounding down to keep multiple 1,000 Pro Scores from happening.)

    And if you were rank #9,500, you'd get
    1000 = ((9500) / (10)) = 50

    The first place player would be the only one to "round up" to 1,000.

    Just an idea of a possible dynamic formula, probably nowhere close to the real thing.



    Another question - how does someone on the Pro Score leaderboard have a score over 26,000 at the moment? That's higher than the "maximum possible" right now. Either the system is broken or they're ironing out the bugs on the Fantastic Four table and leaving the rest of us unable to play it.

    I can't give you the specific formula, but:

    * Your Pro Score for a table is scaled based off of the number of people who have scores in it. Getting Rank #500 will give you more Pro Score points if ten thousand people have played the table compared to only one thousand. (Which makes sense, because in the first example you're in the Top 5% and in the other you're in the Top 50%.)

    * A decent score will typically get you 900+ Pro Score (at least at this point, might be different in a month or two when more scores are entered compared to the first week). I have a Pro Score of over 23,000 (meaning I'm averaging over 880 Pro Score per table) but there are very few tables where my score is in the Top 100 players.

    * It's safe to say that the absolute highest score gets 1,000 and the absolute lowest score gets 1, but any other Pro Score value could be duplicated. There could be dozens or hundreds of players with a Pro Score of 500 on a popular table.

    * Your Pro Score isn't set in stone. If you stop playing for a few weeks then come back, you may find you've lost a considerable amount of Pro Score the next time you play because of all the people who have beaten your high score on various tables. (This may be offset by new people playing tables and getting LOWER than your high score - it's even possible for your Pro Score to INCREASE without doing anything from this.)


    As for specific "number crunching" involving Pro Score, you'd need someone that actually knows the code.

    On Zen Pinball 2, click on the "help" icon on the main menu. It goes into great detail on how the Pro Score is calculated.

    started a topic Pro score calculation

    Pro score calculation

    How are the pro scores on each table calculated. I'd read it went from 1/1000 and your score was the reverse of your leader board ranking but that doesn't seem to add up. For instance on one table I'm ranked 200 and something and my pro score points are in the 900s on that table.
    Barbie or anyone, if you know could you reply?
    Thank you
    Oh another question: What makes up the honor end of ball bonus I see on a lot of tables?
    Thanks again
