This probably sounds stupid but someone came up with this idea here on the forums to introduce a “Legendary Score Boost” card so I thought, actually that’s not a terrible idea to be honest.
Most Escape “time” leaderboards are near impossible to beat mainly because of the meatshield glitch having been patched. I suggested a bunch of times to the devs that the Escape leaderboards should’ve been reset because of that so that we can hunt down for time again.
Now that I think of it, ANOTHER Score Boost card would actually solve this problem too and on top of that, it would actually make the runs even more interesting since you’d be even more limited to which cards you want to bring with to this nightmare.
I mean on a technical perspective it might still be harder to introduce more cards but it would certainly also change how to approach the hives to achieve those times.
They could also adjust the cards scores for a bit easier calculation because right now it’s a weird number (43%) when maxed out. E.g. they could do something like this:
Score Boost 1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 5%, 6%
Rare Score Boost 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10%, 12%
Epic Score Boost 3%, 6%, 9%, 12%, 15%, 18%
Legendary Score Boost 4%, 8%, 12%, 16%, 20%, 24%
Heroic Score Boost 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%
Totaling at 60% when maxed excluding Heroic and 90% including Heroic.
Or they could just double all of them, totaling at 120% or 180% respectively.
Obviously this would mess with the Weeklies but they’re already busted so who cares really…
