    RANK #1: 26,325 AP (DAZ)
    RANK #2: 23,678 AP (TEDDY)
    RANK #3: 23,073 AP (MANUEL007)
    RANK #10: 18,646 AP (JESSYCAA)
    RANK #30: 8,571 AP (KE)
    RANK #54: 5,470 AP (SCORPION)

    Good Morning ... it's time for the "stretch run" my fellow warriors.

    All of the TOP 30 are headed to the GOLD LEAGUE (not unusual). I lost several ranks overnight; I also noticed that RANK #30 made up over 1,000 AP during that period. Oh how I remember the early days and my "Great Experiment in Stamina"; I know first hand what it takes in time and GOLD. KUDOS

    My problem after months of bugs, screw-ups, glitches, missed events, broken features and the like is that I cannot muster the motivation required to put forth that kind of effort. So I'll put in my time, play out the game blasting enemies, collect my rewards and then quietly fade away; in several months time nobody will ever remember the SCORPION anyway.

    C'est La Vie.

    Now back to the business at hand; there's still 21 hours and 35/50 parts separating me from that TESLA. Fortunately, I appear to be on the business side of The Great Wall, so I should be able to cruise for the 35 weapon parts.

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    I noticed that as you said you lost several ranks overnight, 6 to be exact. On IOS, I was not as fortunate, I went from rank #49 to rank #76, a drop in 27 spots.

    But as you said, at least,I am on the right side of the wall still.

    So I've increased from Level 155 to 156. The total number of replay missions thus far is 56. When I received the "magic" script, I still had 5-6 contracts to close (INTEL SDCARDS = 5), so my personal estimate for reaching Level 160 is still 360 replay missions (or thereabouts).

    That would leave 304 contract missions remaining and 304/(8x6)=6.33 DAYS. I'm planning for a long week of boring, repetitive, mind numbing game play.

    My POT of GOLD at the end of the rainbow is 360 FUSES and THAT seems to make it all worthwhile.

    How is that for timing, Brad, 2 mins apart.

    Looks like LIFESAPARTAY has decided to make a move. With 17 hours and 4 mins left, he has jumped to 1st with 28,058.

    The top three are all playing hard. My worry is Tonyzaper23 who is back playing 24/7 and gaining on me fast.

    I don't have much to upgrade, so I am not anxious to spend a lot of Gold, but I may have to pick up the pace.

    I don't have much to upgrade either besides Drone. Playing for fuses in open contract is so bore. Btw, my game's id is Anhminh7482. Just want to share my opinion with the group.
    Most top players are playing for clan APs to stay top 5.

    Here is the IOS All Time Leaderboard Top 5:

    #1 108285 Patrickpiollot (No longer playing)
    #2 87377 Bradr752
    #3 83494 Ausausa (no longer playing hard)
    #4 78750 Tonyzaper23 (playing real hard, a real threat)
    #5 70403 DG1923 (not making any headway)

    So the question is will I catch Patrick before Tony catches me?

    With the leader no longer playing, whether you hit #1 BEFORE Tony catches you is academic because he's the real threat. You must decide whether you want to defend your #1 RANK or settle into #2 indefinitely.

    With one rabbit dead, Tony is trying to reel in the others. The only way to hold off a closer is to outrun him to the finish. Obviously this would require resolve and determination, both of which you possess in spades; but how bad do you really want it?

    If it were me, RANK #1 is all that would matter ... but I'm nuts so consider the source ***SMILES***

    Here's a strange one. For some reason it appears that I'm caught in a free medkit loop. For three straight PvP battles, I've received a video to watch for a free medkit; let's see how long it lasts.

    I really am torn about it because after each video/free prize, the game restarts wasting valuable time.

    Hopefully it will end on it's own and soon.

    Wow ... 27 RANKS overnight is a bit on the high side. I guess these guys really want that TESLA, almost as bad as I do LOL. I suppose we had better buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride later on.

    RANK #30: 9.432 AP (ORLIK)
    RANK #54: 6,142 AP (SCORPION)

    Here's a tip regarding that "mystery" kill shot specialist. If you wait until the "spook" is on the right side of the platform and the Special Forces soldier has moved forward from his hiding place under the desk, you can take them both out with a single grenade. If executed properly, there is no need to move forward the second time and exposing yourself to the infamous sudden death kill shot.

    Problem solved courtesy of The SCORPION.

    Good Luck and Good Hunting !!!

    Yes, it looks that way, LOL. I have been able to get back to Rank #66, without too much trouble so far. As long as I finish, at atleast Rank #90, I don't really care.

    Right now, Rank #30 is at 8,498. I have 6,346.

    Expecting a wild ride later, my goal is to get back into the low 50's with out spending a lot of the 100 All Energy credits, that I already have.

    I concur ... if you get back to the low 50s, you should be safe. I'm attempting to do the same and I've clawed my way up to RANK #52. If I can regain all that I lost, I'll feel better.

    The scoring was greater than that for the HEAVY last week and I know that late surge is coming. I ended up being RANK #77 with 5,754 AP.

    Be careful, that 27 RANK shift might indicate that the wall has shifted upwards.

    For the HEAVY, I finished just outside of the top 90. Then when I finished 3rd and 6th, the first 2 days of League play, I got the JAHANNAM HEAVY on the last day.

    I do have a question about the 17.5+ HEAVYs. The JAHANNAM HEAVY has a slight delay from the time that the fire button is pressed, until it starts firing. The JAHANNAM is the first HEAVY that has had the delayed firing. Is this normal?

    Here is my all-time vault take. I know that Brad will appreciate the player that I took it from, LOL. My little 16.5 TESLA WITCH took him down with no problem.

    RANK#34 is really close, but you're also really close to crossing that line and being caught between a rock and a hard place.

    The safe play is to stop playing ... the warrior in me says go for it; you're call though. For future reference, you need to pace your battles and try to keep your AP total in line with your goals; you probably will end up using GOLD needlessly reaching that AP total but that's OK, we've all been there.

    Great Work !!!

    Yes that's normal. It's a chain driven weapon so you'll need to adjust the way you aim and fire so that you're at least a second ahead of yourself, so to speak. BRAD absolutely hated the weapon. I got used to it's quirks but eventually I abandoned it myself when something better came along.

    It makes up for it with massive killing power. Whenever I needed precision, I always switched to my ASSAULT rifle.

    All of the flat topped, iron-sighted, chain driven Heavies are modelled after the Gatling Gun, which had a lag until the slack was taken up in the belt that fed the ammo. I hate all the iron sighted weapons and avoid them whenever I can.

    The models that feature a Red Dot sight, for example the Taurus, 16.5 or Virgo, 16.0 or an Acog type sight, see the Sawfish, 17.5 or the Silk, 16.5, are much quicker and give a much better sight picture. In short, if you don't see a sight on top of the Heavy, don't go out of your way to acquire it, since the are slow cumbersome, slow and the iron sight sucks.

    PS Scorpion, the Iron Maiden Heavy, 18.5, 40.24M, With the Acog is heaven to use after 6 weeks with that miserable POS Karma.

    I am hoping that the next weapon offered will be at least the 17.5 ASSAULT. Like you say, the killing power is fantastic, but as soon as the juggernaut is done, I find myself switching back to my 16.5 PUMPKIN.

    Thank you for this tip, it will help going forward, as I really don't care for the delay or for that matter the iron sight.

    I stopped using the KARMA quite sometime ago in favor of my 17.5 JUNIPER, which I used exclusively in last week's HEAVY Global. That was more of a proof of concept to prove that SHORT battles were entirely winnable using an ASSAULT rifle.

    Then I started upgrading the 17.5 BLOBFISH (currently at 90%) because I don't have anything else to spend diamonds on. At 100% I expect this weapon to handle TIER 18 easily. Next month I'll be looking to find it's replacement and an Iron Maiden clone seems to be on the menu.
