You have the best point of all though. That is the game designed the power ups with the idea that some would be harder than others. They scored them accordingly. The most obvious being 2x points compared to Jackpot. You are rewarded for difficulty.
There is so little skill and strategy involved with 2x, Shockwave, Bottle Rockets, and Road Rage. I use to never use them and have now been forced to. I see now how using them were better for a handful of songs. That is a shame knowing the lack of skill they take to use.
Pinball does require some skill and the points match that but I can't stand using it. It takes away from actually playing the song. I prefer a Power up that requires notes to be hit. I will still not use Pinball for that reason.
Runaway notes would be interesting if it actually had a point value that made it worthwhile. Once again this is a powerup that requires notes to be hit.
Since the nerf I have been trying out Synchrony. I am not a fan of this Powerup but think it's point value is correct.
I have scored well in some songs using a Road Rage/Blast Note/ Synchrony load out. Although I scored well on a few certain types of songs I just don't see the skill in using this combo. On top of that it is so boring to use.
I have no desire or plans to do any of the tournaments they have set up. So until they make some type of decision on what they will do a customer like myself is pretty much forgotten. I still cannot believe this game has been messed up like this for over a week now.
