Gamer Tag- DICLONIUS83. I just made an Xbox Live profile a week ago so I had to start from scratch again Sad. I'am currently replaying master ninja mode and my Karma rank for Mentor is probably around 300 with 35,000,000 but thats because I did not upload my score when I beat it and last uploaded it on Ch.13. * I ended up beating it with like 38,000 000.* Anyone else?

Why can't we all just hit a Bong?

^Agreed.

I'm in the 3,000 seeing as I only uploaded my Karma like 8 times.

Like 1000 something... I haven't really tried or cared about the leaderboards, I expect to be in the lower hundreds when I beat Master Ninja though... only 8 1/2 more chapters to go. Only healed 5 times because I'm worried I'll need the items later.

The mess of the leaderboards means that I won't be caring about my ranking. Last time I checked I was in the top 500 or so.

You can't say the leaderboard is completely pointless though, you just got to figure out who karma farmed and who did not.

1. If they have a play-through that has over 65,000,000 they farmed.

2. If they have a completed play-though with over 16 hours they farmed.

With that in mind the leaderboard can still be enjoyable with the addition of speed runs.

True but thats why you have to keep the other stats in mind.

300-something last I checked on my Master Ninja file, but I don't care much. The karma system is broken and easily exploitable. Comparing my clear time to others proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

But then again, you gotta remember that if you are playing on New game+, the time from the previous playthrough will carry over Wink

What kind of farming are you talking about? There is legitimate karma farming and then there's exploiting the MN CH9 glitch farming. Legitimate karma farming is acceptable to me because TN didn't put in time limits. I'm all for legitimate farming and one thing you can say about legit karma players is that they fight all the fights. I would look at the kills people have which tells you how many fights they've done and skipped.

For example: When I played through Mentor and got to the beetles in CH9, I singled those guys out with DS Gleaming Blade UTs and could get one or two on each one. I did that all the way until the Worm boss fight and scored over 1.4 million for that section. Sure I could have just Scythe UTd my way through but that is only worth about 750K and is easy. Doing individual GBs means you have to know how to lure the beetles one by one and how far you need to get back to only hit them once so I think that takes more skill than UTing your way through. Since there isn't any time limits and the end of chapter time bonus is a joke, I would go for about 15 minutes and then take a break and repeat until I killed them all so of course my time is going to be higher.

Another thing that people don't realize is that legitimate karma runs aren't as easy as people might think. You can still get hurt trying to squeeze out as many points as you can and eventually the enemies die, unlike the cheaters who exploited the Jellyfish and press B for 30 hours. Also you have to know enemies patterns in order to squeeze out extra points. If you're a legitimate karma runner then getting through the game is not that hard which is the reason we play for score. I know some people say the game is based on style because of all the moves Ryu can do but I say the game is based on score because they put it in there. To each their own on that.

Team Ninja should reset the Leadrerboards and put time limits for each encounter and that whould solve the problem.
