Do high scores matter?

Are you a casual gamer or a fierce competitor? Do high scores even matter?

I’m a laid back gamer. I love playing games and scores aren’t all that wonderful, too much stress and nail biting. I like to exercise my brain.

Who doesn’t like to spike the ball and do a little end zone dance once in a while? Just don’t do it early like on the 20-yard line like I’ve done a time or two. Seriously healthy competition is good for the soul. It’s part of our human DNA. I don’t unfavorably compare myself with someone when in competition. But my goal is to be as good or better than someone else at playing online games. So sure, I try and play for the high scores but I don’t think I’m better than someone else because I out score them. So pick the online game double or nothing.

Well said, but then you have people that get these high scores EVERYDAY which in 8 Ball pool is impossible. Try it someday. You can make a break from the exact same place every time and the balls will rarely do the same things. Plus if you look at the rules and scoring it is complete B.S. It doesn't give the points it says it does. I have played thousands of the same game and got 37000 once so how these few same people always get high score have figured out a way to cheat and it makes them feel good so good for them. We all like to feel good. Stay safe

And when you converse with Arkadium they don't have a clue!

But the Arkadium staff does have a clue, @ACB3.

 

I have had direct email conversations with Arkadium staff(who by the way are off shore either in eastern Europe or Russia) where they have stated that they knew cheating was going on but AARP was restricting them from addressing the issue.

 

This occurred with the game 5ROLL where scores were being posted that were absolutely impossible through play of the game because the game has a FINITE possible amount of points that CAN be scored.

 

The issue was finally resolved but it took close to a year.
