Not sure if this is the right place to post this. Was just wondering if anyone knows which of the tables that qualify for battle of the planets points league are the best to do?. I completed a block of 100 the other week and gained 1083 points overall, to get in the top 100 i would need about 1400 so still a long way to go. Was just thinking if i make my next target something like 1200 points over 100 sngs it could be a good marker that my game is slowly improving. And getting in the top 100 for Mercury High orbit Division could be something to aim for a few months down the line.

Before Americans were barred, I kept a close watch on these games in the Mercury Division as I anticipated playing there one day. This is what I can tell you of my observations from a year ago.


425 points is the minimum you will need to reach top 100 in the low orbit. 20-games
525 points is the minimum for the top 10 and the ticket to the monthly big money game.


So if you want a benchmark for the high orbit, multiply these numbers by five.

2125 points should get you into the top 100
2625 points should get you into the top 10


Unless the competition has become weaker, 1100 points for a high orbit will not even reach the top 100.

Just had a look at last weeks leader board again 50th place in high orbit scored 1494 and 100th place was 1413 so maybe its not as strong as it used to be. Im not sure you can use the 20 block games as a benchmark because you can have a hot streak with abit of luck and get like 500 points but only average 300 a block. So by the looks of it 1450 ish should get you the top 100 most weeks going on last weeks results.

Then I wish you a good, long, hot streak. I do admit my observations were strictly on the low orbits. I couldn't see myself doing one hundred games in less than seven days. I would have problems at the low orbit per week, unless I concentrated on these games only. Just shows I need to learn how to multi-table.
