I played puzzle #125 back in 2009. Ranked 42nd with a final score of 9567. Top score for #970 at the moment is 8795. How can this be, if the game tools have improved? Does the game calculate points differently than it did five years ago?
Scoring has changed since newchapter came out. Old scores and new scores are not compatible. Higher scores in oldchapter are not necessarily better than lower scores in newchapter and vice versa.
