    Tip for Boosting Plays

    Hi all, I wanted to share a tip I discovered for how to boost your play count and get "50 Unique Players" . The P4P thread is nice, and it got me about halfway there, but there is a faster way. The key is to take advantage of the flawed "Dive In" option.

    Steps:
    1) Go to Community -> Cool Levels
    2) Pick a popular, short level. I recommend playing it all the way through, especially if you do not yet have "U Know U a Playa"
    3) After you are back in the pod menu, wait for a minute. You should receive a request from a player to join you. Playing a community level puts you in the "candidate pool," so you have a chance of being selected as the host when someone chooses "Dive In." Since Dive In seems to only select hosts who are in the pod rather than playing a level, that is where you need to be.
    4a) If you receive a join request, accept it. Immediately go to your level that needs plays, and start loading it. Ideally the player should join you a few seconds before the level starts. If your level is tiny, wait to load it until after the player joins. Even if the player wants to leave, it takes 10 seconds to do so, and the process cancels if the level finishes loading before those 10 seconds are up - keep this in mind. Go to step 5.
    4b) If you do not receive a join request within a minute or two, try playing a different community "cool level." It should be one that has lots of people playing it at the moment. Go to step 3.
    5) Play your level, and you should be one step closer to the . If you are trying to boost your play count on multiple levels (or if you have multiple accounts), you can keep going, but in many cases the player will leave fairly quickly. You can also kick them once you are done, and start fishing for another player.

    I found that this works pretty well as long as you pick a busy community level. Sometimes, you'll even get daisy-chains of several players joining you at once. It only took me a couple hours to get the additional 20-25 plays I needed to get the , though I'm sure you can do it even faster if your level loading time is short and you really get it down. Good luck!

    It does work albeit slowly at first, though I now only need 9 more plays!

    People tend to dislike it when you do this, but I thought of the same idea and have been doing it for a while. Working good! Only 17 more!
    Thanks to Ramonalicious for the sig.

    Well yeah, but at least you are playing levels when they dive in, instead of hanging out in your pod like most people seem to do when you join their game...
