    Some background info: unscrupulous players will occasionally hack their Triple Town scores to get ludicrously high rankings on the leaderboards. To combat this, we have placed an upper limit on the leaderboard scores–any score above this threshold is assumed to be submitted by a hacker and automatically dropped. At the time of the events in this story, the threshold was 30M. Even the best players usually don’t score anywhere near this threshold, but apparently there are some players good enough to actually exceed it.

    This is the story of one player who is good enough to exceed the score limit and was screwed (twice) by it, and who decided to take extraordinary measures to ensure his place at the top of the leaderboard.
