For each of your Muds a tally is kept of total number of games played, total score and an Elo rating (named after its creator Arpad Elo).
The Elo rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players (commonly used in games such as chess).
A rating of 1200 is taken as average and is the start rating for all Muds.
Can anyone get to 2000?
If the tank you are in has flush levers then try to use them, then bump into the new mudlets to increase your alpha dollop size. This ought to put you in a round winning score.
Don't forget though, that the enemy Mud will probably be trying to do the same.
An easy way to lose a round is to crash into a wall at full speed and break up your alpha dollop as shown above (6 mudlets lost).
Practise slowing your Mud by tilting your phone/tablet before it gets to a wall or other solid object.
Mullets are great bulldozers to disrupt the enemy but tend to destroy only 1 or 2 enemy mudlets before exploding.
So don't waste Mullets if you are a big score behind in a round.
They are best used when you are only 1 or 2 down or if it's the last round when you might as well use everything you have got!
