I can definitely tell you its possible to score 5 million on the acolyte round for mission 17 (TDS). I scored a crazy 4.98 million just yesterday, got it on Ninja Cinema too. Got beat by Genshin unfortunately, so i didn't make it to the Warrior round, but it looks really impressive. In case you guys were wondering, i still don't have access to my old gamertag Puregrunt as my credentials were stolen over XBL nearly 5 weeks ago now and MS are still taking their sweet time sorting it out.


The gamertag that i've been using is "Master Ninja IW". My internet connection sucks right now, but when i've got it loaded again i'll upload it to the leader boards. If i had beaten Genshin it would have been over 5 million.

Oh so that's what happened. Sorry man.
Hate to bring bad news but judging from the 360 board at GFAQs this has been happening to a fair amount of people and MS either can't or isn't doing much about it to get people their accounts back. Some guys have been waiting several months but MS seems unable to help. They have been setting up new accounts and giving them everything they had purchased on those accounts for people having this issue but that's all in the US.


If you need the stuff from the first page of the survival thread at IW's I have it copied in notepad at home, but it's a couple months old.

Edit: oh and spectacular acolyte score :surprise:
I tried playing around a bit this morning and I'm horrendous :laugh:

You won't believe this....i got my money back!


I just called my bank and they said there was a deposit made last week, i didn't check (doh). MS didn't even tell me....useless. Even the XBL customer care chick didn't know, she said it was still under investigation. My god, they really don't communicate with each other.

I haven't checked the GT yet, it may be gone for good.

Sweet score PG. I'll have to check out your NC when I get the chance.

I again haven't really been playing, just been a little busy. I did manage 11.3M with the lunar, and surprisingly it was maybe my fifth attempt or so. I was going to make it into a video, but something started happening with my computer. I installed half life 2 and the original quake, and for some reason my PC just started slowing to a crawl, and I was using over 50% of my memory at all times minimum, and often 80%+. This created unbelievable lag on the video and made commentary impossible. I ended up uninstalling a bunch of stuff I didn't need and cleaned out my registry and it seems to be back to normal, but now I just don't really have time to do it. I'll get to it pretty soon though.

I think I'm going to shoot for the #1 lunar score though, because I honestly don't see beating it as being too much of a problem. It's definitely the easiest weapon for me to use. Anyway, I'm not making that a goal of mine really. After I beat the 12M mark I'll just move on to the KsG.

Lunar vids...I might post the later rounds if I get the itch. The beginning and end of the first vid is kinda screwed up, but I don't care. Amateur FTW.

Nice vids, UV. Thanks for posting. I've quickly added them to the main video site, if you don't mind, but when I get more time tonight, I'll give them a watch. Good job. mate.

You make it look easy. Would a regular UT give more points (more instant kills)?

So this is where you all ended up!?!

PG - crazy score for the first round, too bad about genshin ... probably would've been a a pretty nasty run (not that it wasn't already).

UV - I posted on your YouTube vids. No doubt in my mind you could put up a killer score with the lunar, if you wanted to take the time to do it.

Funny story, we got nailed with >14 inches of snow a couple weekends ago. Lost power for about a day or so. When it turned back on, everything worked fine except my wireless router. It wouldn't power up, tried different outlets, different power adaptors. Nothing, not even a blip from the indicator lights. My fiance and I have been fighting over the ethernet cable since. So no xbox live for me 'til we get a new one. Of course during this time i put down a nice lunar run. Finished with just over 11M. Killed offscreen by the last marionette before genshin on the mentor round. I was pumped, top 10 for sure! I tried hooking up the ethernet cord to the 360 and connecting but apparently it doesn't like that very much. Wasn't able to upload score. But I'm pretty sure I can beat that score, just a question of when.

Reim - Regular lunar UTs are tricky on survival. In my experience its hit or miss with them (literally and figuratively). The amount of space you have makes it so you usually end up facing the outside of the arena and the wave of fire only hits 1 (maybe 2 enemies). You can however direct this UT. After the initial hit, if there are enemies behind you can target them and reverse direction. But again you'll be lucky to take out more than 2 enemies. IMO, the best time to use a regular lunar UT is when there are a ton of enemies concentrated (van gelf, gaja wave) or when there are rocket ninjas lined up around the perimeter. In the latter scenario, you can essentially collect each one along your way. The most i've ever killed in one swoop was 5. Even if you could guarantee that you'd take out that many each time, I think I would still favor 360 UTs. At 25k a pop plus 15k instant kill and/or 15k killing spree you can easily eclipse the karma obtained from 1 reg UT taking out 5. That said, the regular UT is rather disappointing in survival play.

Shaking off the Ninja rust and giving these another go. Been playing around with the Dragon Sword and scored 12.5 million, not bad for being rusty. I'm using my new gamer tag and only playing survival missions. So far i have played Dragon Sword, Scythe, Tonfa, Lunar and BoTA. Haven't touched the Talons, Flails or Kusari-gama. I have accumulated about 50 million karma.

"Master Ninja IW"


Send me a friend request if you like. I was just playing Scythe and scored 4.98 million for the Acolyte round, i got beaten by damn mages in the boss fight. They did those flaming pit things repeatedly until i died whilst Genshin was all over me. Typical. The AI really is ball busting. :headbash:

It's been happening a lot for many months now. From what I've heard if it's had it's locale changed you're screwed. M$ will give you a new account with all the purchases from your last one validated on it but you can't get the account back. If it's only been hacked and had it's GT changed (which form the little info I know right now) M$ should give you a free name change and then just change your password.

I wouldn't get your hopes up though.
