    Don't be obtuse. You aren't getting a crown anytime soon so don't worry about it.

    what's your problem?

    this ranking combo definitely matters more than time, i can dig out the math for you ...

    I would be interested in the math, it's hard to switch gears from max combos to max speed. But I was just reiterating what he's already stated himself, he isn't crown chasing.

    Haven't really seen a crown worthy score focusing on speed over combos. Some good ones yes, but the big scores have all been big combos, of course done in a timely fashion. If time mattered more than combos, we'd see a bunch of dios teams.

    combo > time, the math isn't hard.
    5000 per average combo. there's 6 floors in the dungeon.
    5000/6 = 833 points ish per combo.
    ok let's say it takes away some point bc there is some time needed to count combo/skyfall, we'll say 750 then.
    1500 = either 3 seconds or 2 combos
    can you make more than 2 combo per 3 second? yes probably.

    .9% grrrr. Not gonna hold I imagine. Screwed up one of the boards and spent too long trying to fix it or I would probably be safe. Now I'm not gonna be able to walk away.

    I suppose there're not much room for me to believe I'll stay at <10% until the end, but I just can't seem to be able to do better ;;

    EDIT : Team is
    Ilmina // Ilm - Wukong - LEscha // Yog
    And I usually don't use Yog at all

    Around 11%, probably won't break it into top 10% as it seems you need to average about 11 combos and I'm typically around 9-10 with Anubis + that green dude.

    Hit ~25% with Kenshin and Krishna on the first run. Probably just going to leave it at this; there isn't as aggressive jockeying at this level, and I've got the 10k MP and Azathoth skillup I came in for.

    Probably the closest I've ever come to a crown. What's disappointing is that I feel like I've hit the limit of my fast comboing ability and it still isn't enough. 7,500 points is a lot to make up in either avg combo or time remaining and I know I just don't have it in me. Running romia/zuoh/zuoh/meimei/____/anubis

    Maybe one day...

    First run I got this:



    Not sure why I kept trying, but it was still early on and I wasn't sure what the cutoff would be at the end. So a few runs later I got this. I think I entered maybe 7-8 times total? No stones spent, which is nice. Sitting at 0.3% atm so pretty sure I'm safe!



    I hate comboing on 7x6, especially natural boards. Quit like 3-4 runs because of it.

    I finally cracked 20%....but barely at 19.7% (I doubt this holds...I could post a screen shot of the pyramid, but not the stats...)...When I complete the dungeon, I'm averaging around 9-10 combos but speed is an issue (I need to take a little time to give myself an idea of what to try to do). I may try a few more times, as I finally developed a strategy that minimizes thinking time a little. In any event, I just need more practice playing something like Anubis X Anubis to increase my comboing skills.

    I doubt I'm capable of getting much higher than being in the third tier for now, but that's fine. I mainly wanted to get the ranking achievements (haven't done it yet). Also, If I saw correctly, the achievement related to getting the SBR badge is/will be lowered to 25% instead of 10%? If so, I'm probably fine where I'm at now...

    After this point, I think I will focus more on just completing the ranking dungeon once to get the stone and possibly try a handful of times to see if I can get into a decent ranking.

    @xer 21 the more I tried the dungeon, the more comfortable I got and the less shaky I was. I hope you were able to reduce the adrenaline rush!

    Got 142.5k (currently 5.2%) with Romia/Zuoh/Zuoh/Meimei/Ishida/Zuoh and the skill-boost badge. Six straight board changes. I doubt I'm good enough to improve much on that, but I might try if I have spare stamina.

    I can't seem to break less that 20, despite being able to proc both Anubis and Diablos.

    I'm about sick of it.

    I've done about 6 runs a day since it started and about 90% of them is between 142k-146k. I'm at a wall though and can't seem to push past this. I did so many I stopped taking screenshots of new high scores but I average 12 combos 160 seconds for my runs. I feel like 10 seconds faster and I'd be a crown but I just can't.

    My run usually goes:
    Pop Ronia
    Just Combo
    Barbara
    Avalon Drake
    Mori
    Illmina

    My team pairs with an Anubis. I have Anubis and could pair with someone else's Illmina but I'm finding my Illmina getting a lot of use for this from others. I had a second Barbara in Mori's spot but 90% SBR got me twice out of my first three runs and I couldn't have that.

    Clearing a floor by only popping an active skill will get you deducted points. This was to prevent people from just using ra or whoever else to breeze through earlier tournaments, especially where time mattered more. And it also takes absolutely no skill to accomplish, although the same could be said for roulette swiping boards.

    Congrats on the crown though, as I assume that score is still within range.
