Overall Detectives High Scores

Cinderella

As I look at the Overall Detectives High Scores, I noticed that we have a lot of detectives with less cases jumping up the ladder probably because of someone boosting them and giving them harder cases then they would normally get and finishing them for them. I am not talking about once in a while or a similar case close to what they are doing, but much higher cases. Notice how many cases are done and notice their scores.

The detectives that had to learn the hard way are going to be passed by on the list by detectives that someone made it easier for. I guess that you can't really use this as an indication without looking at who is doing what.

What an insult to the oldies.

if that's the case, then you better ask Ben to disband all the agencies. Hopefully by this action, no one is able to play in an agency & get access to harder cases. Not to mention that there are a lot of players who are fast and also a lot of players who are slow and its not always the case that rabbit is racing against the tortoise, but sometimes, the rabbit need to give some chance for the tortoise to catch up, but with its slowness, the rabbit have only 2 solutions:
1 - Slow down by doing easier cases, while giving harder cases for tortoise to do
2 - Sleep (wasting subscription), while waiting for tortoise to catch up on its slow speed

I wonder if you know what this example means... ^_^

I just wonder who the detectives were that gave all of these RH cases out the the detectives?

What does this game mean to anyone anymore? Nothing really.

I will say that I have given cases out occasionally, but not RH cases and not that many.

Agencies are supposed to help the detective's on their cases. It would be great if Ben shut the handing of games from the top down only to allow the games to come from the bottom up.

I am really disappointed and I feel like asking for my money back.

I have been here over a year, and now this. What did I waste my time for.

I would think that he might especially ban a certain detective for causing all of this cheating that is way out of line and this mess.

Don't give me the excuses about the tortoise and the rabbit either.

LOL wow are you serious.....hmmmm I have spent alot of my time in this game too and have had alot of fun. I have done alot of hard work was it a waste of time never...no one can say they boosted me I may have done a handful of rh cases (with ease of course).I only play sh cases so its easy too pass up those who do what ever comes along or nothing at all faster, its figured into case exp avg ...exp(10 sh cases=12800 vs 20 ih cases 12800) and on down the line.....and one last thing you call it easy to pass ones on the list lol its not that easy..

The detective in question is a fantastic player, Cinderella, and does all of their cases themself. They rose quickly because they are extremely dedicated to the game.

If a person does not use their allotted 30 cases a day, what is the harm of giving them to someone who has the time/inclination to play more than 30 cases? I see none. I also do not see how this could be considered cheating.

I respect all the players who are in the top 30, and see how it might be annoying to you, but, I also don't see what the big problem is. If you want to go, go. Don't make a big fuss about it.

Now, do you want a screenshot proof as well on this msg? Do I have to explain every single thing to you, why I'm willing to give so many RHs for Miinck to do? You know what, you're just trying to destroy all your friendship here with peoples and I guess you've succeeded to destroy your friendship with me. That's all I can say.

Get a grip Cinderella. You can ask anyone in ZO, we weren't given ready to accuse cases. We solve them on our own or we don't get them. This thought may not have occurred to you, but some of us refuse to do any lower level cases after we have achieved a certain level. Not even during TH, which, as I understand was the practice at AIU. When you do all sh cases and rh when you get the chance, you climb faster. Not to mention, you have to accept the fact that some of us are just fast. Look at the number of cases we have solved in the time that we have been here. Perhaps you should start over with your math before you start accusing people. This is just a game! Quit being a downer.

Isn't it funny how many people responded to this right a way to provide excuses.

Everyone knows by the cases done, who has cheated. You will receive so many cases before you can up the ladder.

We all know who is the ring leader, because everyone stands up for him all the time. I guess why not, he has boosted everyone so fast.

I wasn't born yesterday.

No more comments from me, as I am unsubscribing and finished playing this game.

Cinderella, please, calm down :) Remember: write what you think in Notepad and if you still feel like publishing it a few days later, copy and paste in the forum.

There are several causes for people rocketing up the ladder:

- before November, we were limited to 640 exp points per case. Now, SH games give you twice as much exp and RH 4 times (no mentioning AI cases). Even limited to 4 cases a day, as I didn't subscribe, I will reach 400,000 exp in roughly 5 months with an average of 640 exp points per game. This would have been impossible before November.

- the more game you solve each day, the more experience you get. A subscribed player can play 30 cases a day so (s)he can win 36K exp a day (or 72K if above 1,000,000 exp). However you'll have to spend (too) much time playing SoM each day :)

- when you are in an agency, you can play your cases and saved cases. So you are able to play more than 30 cases a day.

- when you are in an agency with an over 1,000,000 detective, you can play saved RH cases, although you'd be allowed to do that with your own cases.

I agree with bilbot - look at crazy milmot2 history - in 220 days he solved 3609 cases (average >16 per day), but his average score was only 554 points per case, because these days the hardest case was IH (hareder cases were introduced a few days before milmot2 dead).

I stored many RH cases in agency, but I only opened that cases and member - if (s)he wanted could solve it - there were not any other help from my side. For me it is acceptable.

I don't like situation, when one well-experienced detective has his/her own pet(s) and feeding it with solved cases, but like I wrote above we are not talking about it in this thread.

Let me make clear that I don't take solved cases.
