My friend and I were able to get in the leaderboard top 100 on the later levels (likely because it's only been out a day) by spamming coin-forges and using coin-trinkets. However, the top few scores still have 3 TIMES (!?!) as many points as we do. Also, in the first couple of levels, we can't even break 2,000th place.
I have a feeling we're doing something wrong. How does the scoring work? How do the top players get so many points?
