Quoted from PWhiz:
Formulating a strategy to maximize scoring via all the possible combinations and stacking available is a different story.
Playing at home, my goal is usually to try and finish the game....or get as close as I can. I do try to maximize points in the process, but that is secondary. I've only gotten to EA once.
My basic strategy is to finish the left and right level 1 modes and cap them with PD to get super pops and ramps, then Nero to KM. Along the way, I try to be sure and play KM and Vengence at least once. Doing that generally puts the score somewhere in the the low six figure range...depending on medals.
To really maximize points I imagine you'd have to go three deep on the modes to get shot multipliers. Then when you bring in the multiballs, the points would be much bigger, along with timing the warp playfield multiplier.
How do you approach the game for modes, MBs, and multipliers just to get max scores?
