While I'm not sure the opinion of our forums could be more split on how our community feels about Halfbrick's recently released Fish Out of Water [$1.99] one thing is for sure: We're absolutely stomping the in-game leaderboards. See, the way competing with others works in the game is by joining a "league" which then competes in some kind of cumulative score black majiks to compute an overall leaderboard.

The "TouchArcade" league was full by the time the game hit the US App Store, but it seems people have taken it upon themselves to just increment the number behind "TouchArcade," forming leagues "TouchArcade1," "TouchArcade2," and others... And we're doing quite well it'd seem, per Halfbrick's twitter:

I feel like we need to somehow intelligently re-organize our existing leagues to either put all the best players in one, or, at least equally distribute them across multiple leagues to ensure total leaderboard domination. But, hey, we're beating Halfbrick proper, Reddit, Bacon, and apparently the entirety of the People's Republic of China... So I guess that's pretty good.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

    I'm always the first to score 10 in toucharcade league but there are a lot who never do!!! Please reorganize some how!

    I'm enjoying it, it's a nice little game and has space for extension in the future if they chose to.

    I like this idea. I might buy the game just to do this. It would be fun to get TouchArcade in all top 10 leader boards

      By the way do you gain anything from being in a Top spot?

  • grits

    Wait... You have to link your Facebook account to join a league? Wish I knew that before I bought it.

      And now does one league go/play against another. Don't see that option...

      You can use your gmail account too. Much easier/less pervasive

        Yes! Why is everyone missing this?!?! It's like they read "Facebook" and just go into a blind rage. Reviews are full of people complaining about this.

    I got a 9.9 today. I was so close! I do wish there was a way to organize the leagues better too. Someone should be in charge of each league.

    I'm half Chinese but actually they just piss me off in most leader boards

    Maybe Halfbrick should STRONGLY consider pushing more advertising money to TA...wouldn't hurt.
