[In progress] The most profitable level + difficulty combos
So for all you competitive Runner2 players out there, I decided to start this thread as a means to list the difficulty and level combinations that will net you the most points.

"But why?", you might ask. You see, because of the dancing mechanics added to Runner2, playing on Rather Hard won't always result in the most amount of points because the easier difficulties may have more room to dance and rack up points that way.

If you can contribute, please do! It would take me a long time to dig deep into this on my own, so any help is appreciated! It doesn't have to be 100% accurate, either - we can always adjust the list as we move along.

This is a great idea even though it sucks that the hardest difficulty doesn't always give you the highest score.

Here are the ones I'm pretty sure of:

1-20 Stratosfear = Easy
2-20 Drowntown = Hard

There, did some testing on the first few levels of the Emerald Brine and added my results to the list. Levels with multiple optimal difficulties means that there was a very little score difference between those difficulties (10k~15k pts).

Edit: Also 9th on the global leader boards. Yay!

Contribute!

5-5 ~ 5-12 = Hard

The Emerald Brine completed! 1 down, 4 (well, 3) to go!
Xphere Omega Mar 3, 2013 @ 7:39pm 
4-1, 4-3 = Hard
4-2 = Medium
5-4, 5-14, 5-16, 5-17 = Hard
5-18 = Easy

bump. this is a useful post.
Klobbershank Jul 30, 2013 @ 2:35pm 
I can confirm 2-10 = Hard.
Also Xphere, how in the world do you figure 5-18 = Easy? I must be missing some obvious trick, but can't for the life of me figure what it is.
Klobbershank Jul 30, 2013 @ 3:38pm 
Also, 4-2 = Hard, not medium. Just got the top score
