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?

The loading tips say that increasing combos and killstreaks can double or triple your score. I believe combos are initiated by several different traps damaging the orcs at the same time. – Frank Jul 31 '12 at 17:22

I can't confirm this because I haven't played enough, but it seems like the scoring is pretty similar to OMD 1, so you might find this question useful. It links to a post on Robot Entertainments blog that has the point values for various combos and whatnot.

Aside from, getting high combo scores has been the best for points as far as I can tell. So combine a lot of different trap types with magic/attacks to get higher scores, each type of different damage source should increase your combo (ie, combo only increases once per type of trap that hits an enemy). I don't believe that coin forges actually help with your score, they just increase the amount of coins you have to spend during that level, so replace them with tar/fire traps to increase your combo multipliers.

I managed to get #113 on Chasm, more or less by raw chance. Most of my score was from "Skull Score", which got me a bonus 100,000 points, apparently because I picked up 11 bonus skulls (and one for getting my first 5-skull victory).
