    Always speed. Time is always going to be your largest point pool.

    Speed speed speed. The crown forever eludes me, but I'm at 2.5% with Bamboo. I try to only make 4 combos a turn.

    The strat that seems to get me into the top 1% is:
    1) Do the absolute bare minimum to clear the wave as fast as humanly possible. If it just takes 5 blue orbs to clear wave 1, then that is all you are after. If you are after the damage bonus, any damage over 40m is a waste of time and points.
    2) Use the time between waves to figure out a specific plan to clear the next wave. That might look something like: I'm going to use an orb changer, create two blue combos (5+4) using this specific orb in a pattern that will also net me two off color combos. You are trying to identify the shortest path an orb can take to clear the wave and get as many incidental combos as possible. Do not go out of your way for additional combos.
    3) Know when to go for the damage bonus. You might have a plan for a wave that would be easiest to achieve the damage bonus. But, be flexible about where it can happen and know how to not overkill your ideal damage bonus wave. If you happen to get an early skyfall that unexpectedly achieves the 40m damage bonus earlier than expected, don't waste time doing it again later on.
    4) Get lucky avoiding skyfalls. Skyfalls are almost always bad for your score. Pray you can avoid them.

    Good reply, but I like how you assumed he was using you yu.
    Edit: My bad, didn't realize how you worded it, sorry.

    Not sure if I have any of the non-rainbow teams needed to smash through this dungeon in an instant.
