    Default Civil War - Stamford multiball

    Just wondering what kind of scores everyone is carrying into each new game with the Stamford Multiball aspect of the game. I've only managed to get in a couple of games so I assume mine is horrible (2 Million?) but I could see myself playing just the pre-game portion over and over to improve it.

    Got 3.4 million so far. That seemed to come from a relatively short attempt, where as I've had a few that run on for a good few minutes and still only come to 200-500k, so I think I'm hitting the wrong lanes most of the time. I think if I could reach 10m on that mode I would leave it for a while, that'd be a great bonus for starting off with each time (especially with my high score a paltry being 33m).

    On about 3.5mil but not so much worried about getting a good score on this as it doesn't count that much relative to the scoring potential of the table. I am more interested in rescuing groups of 10 people as that allocates heroes to your side.

    That's something I didn't know. I noticed when I got the 9.5m I got 2 heroes already on my side. Obliviously that doesn't count if yous skip the multiball. It's great that even though you don't best your score, your best score is the one that counts before picking CA or IM.

    Also cloda, Is the scoring opportunity you mentioned a single shot or combos?

    Something interesting to note. I don't' recall what side I was playing but I did notice after getting both kickbacks and you shoot the left sinkhole 4 times, The jet bumper bonus goes up. So each jet bumper hit is is increased by the bonus amount. It starts at 10k then ramps up by 10k each time you do it.

    Got 6 millions pretty quickly, but now I can't do better.

    Cloda, does the combo shot have anything to do with the Sniket shot to the right?

    A massive 2.1 million here. No wonder my current high score on the table is 8.8 million, I'm obviously awesome.

    Well I think I found a scoring bug that gave me 4 million per shot. I don't think it is the same one Cloda found because it wasn't even a combo shot. I only made 4 or 5 shots to confirm it before I got back to trying to defeat enemies. But yeah, you could totally abuse it. I think I know what condition caused the scoring bug but I will have to try to repeat it to be sure.

    I think I found it and you're right about the basics. The first time I did it, I got over 6 million points. A couple more times and I got 7 million points each. I scored a 100 million pretty easily before I went back and focused on the gaining allies (trying to get to wizard mode twice in one game).

    Eh, nothing to special, really. I did it today, and the first few seconds it was only half of 4.5m a shot, then suddenly it went up to 4.5. I almost want to say it had to do with my multipliers, because I got enough sinkhole shots to advance them while in the multiball then that's when it jumped up to 4.5m...I don't know, though.

    Still don't see it. I've done 2 shot combos but score doesn't see, to ramp up. The only score I see ramp up is the direct hit playing as Iron Man. I shoot the left orbit, shoot the left ramp with the upper right flipper then the left ramp flipper Where CA deflects the ball. I notice scores ramp up but technically it's not a 2 shot combo.

    I'd be interested to know what I'm missing.

    It's that way with all the Wizard modes. the score starts off small then ramps up to the max amount for each wizard mode. 1st time 1.5m. second 4.5m, Third, 6m.

    Hmmm, was playing earlier today, and I got it to where every time I hit the right sinkhole, it gave me 4m, then I think another million if I hit it with the middle flipper, then the upper right flipper. If that's it, then it is pretty dumb, but it'll still take a long time to spam that IMO.
