Score is xp for the first kill only of a monster race.

yeah, I was just referring to a snapshot of the comp ranking from a couple days ago, when I had less xp but more turns, and was still somehow ranked above Murphy, which made me wonder what score looked at besides xp.

The ladder was totally messed up for the first few days Pav graciously fixed the ranking when we noticed the numbers not making sense.

Too bad this wasn't PosChengband. Or you would see way more red lines.

Yeah, my winner got very lucky with xp early on, which allowed me to dive fast, but the whole way, after the first try I made, and the 50 or so not at all successful attempts after that, I adopted an extreme "run away at the first sniff of danger" strategy. Teleport level even. Only when I knew what I was looking at, probed it even, would I stick around. Telepathy was non-negotiable, and I was lucky to get it early (level 36?) from a very nice heavy flail of Gondolin, outperformed all weapons until late in the game (when I'd already killed Ungoliant). Regular Detection, too. That maelstrom v unique I never felt comfortable facing, always exited level immediately, after the first time I saw him and he blasted me down to double digit hp in one shot from like 450hp, with decent resists, after I'd already hit him pretty good with a couple arrows. Even on the final level, when Morgy summoned him, I immediately teleported away. Lucky he didn't catch up with the battle...

And the fucking hounds... exit level.

Luckily I didn't even encounter that particular breed of hound. Nexus hounds were bad enough.

Wiruin actually doesn't move so you can use Q tactics on it (corner shooting), it can still be a nasty surprise, though. I think it should be able to teleport you to it, a maelstrom would suck you in wouldn't it?
