the expected buZz multiplier, Z = ((B-A-1)*N)+1
Shot score, S = T*Z*B
finishing Extras, E = ((T+Y)x(2^P)+10)*L
Final score, F = I + (1+C+1)*S + E
B=Bounce multiplier (number of times ball hits the wall +1)
N=expected buzz Per bounce
C=finishing combo increase
I=score before final shot
P= number of pegs still left on the board
Y= is the tariff increase on forming the finishing shape (luckily the strings don't affect this)
NB1. J is an adJustment factor that depends on how much of the buzz run is completed before the first bounce and after the last bounce
NB2. The first 1 in the (1+C+1) factor is because the finishing combos are an INCREASE starting from 1. The second +1 is because you have to add finishing bonus to the shot score.
Lets put the numbers in from the video
J is approx 1
Z is approx ((14-1-1)*6)+1= 73
(actual was 72 so lets use that)
(actual was 71160 because the tariff didn't go up by 10 like it should have done after a collision, this sometimes happens after "noddy" shots which I think is a bug)
= 98645580 as per video
By using the formula you can calculate the maximum possible score with a given strategy.
Given a slightly higher tariff or a few more buzzes you can break 100 million.
I know that's possible because I've done it twice:0
