Thing is one needs to decide how many gems and/or how much money are you willing to spend on a pet.
The storm team thankfully runs another event at the same time they run leaderboard and everyone knows only two players out of 20 players wins leaderboard.
There are nice milestone prizes.
Even if a person leads a leaderboard right to the end someone can buy points in the last five minutes or boost and speed up items with gems to get points and suddenly pass you.
Leaderboard is always going to have some players that want to win no matter what the cost.
I concentrate on the other event and the milestone prizes.
If I am put on a board that top few players are yellow boosting from day one I grimace and stay out of that war.
I think of it this way those few high spending players on a leaderboard are giving money to the Storm team that keeps the game I love going!
It is impossible to “yellow boost” that much that fast by purchasing the boosts. I just watched the same player double her score again to over 8,000 points in 5 minutes. It isn’t possible to do it without cheating. I read somewhere that they cheat by tampering with their device clock and date. I don’t know if that’s what she’s doing or if she has found another way.
Yes, players can buy gems the final two days of the leaderboards. It’s 1600 gems for $14.99 if I remember correctly. That’s why they cheat to get so far ahead. Unless you want to put a lot money into getting into first place, it isn’t an option.
I hate it that ppl cheat and are allowed to get away with it. It discourages the rest of us.
In the time it took me to try the response above, she jumped another 1,000 points.
If money's not a limiting factor, you can just gem deliveries non-stop to rack up the points. It's not cheating, this is how the game is designed. It's purpose is to make money. I'm a free player across all the S8 games I'm playing so I've accepted this fact. Figure out for urself how to not get into a matchup with these type of players.

I have no problem with players buying gems to rack up points. I’m trying to tell you that’s impossible to legitimately rack that many points. I’m a paying player. I’ve bought gems to do just about anything possible with gems. What they are doing is not legitimate. But thanks for your input.
Leaderboard money lets a lot of players play for free and keeps the game going.
Correction it is only 4 points to speed the Manhole cover up

Every LB, there?s a 15point every 2hr thing ... let?s call this thing 15pointer.
On a recent LB, I was running out of time to get to 6500. I had around 5000 and 6 hrs left.
I?ve heard of, and got knocked out of top spots by, the legendary 15pointer. So I decided to give it a try.
First, I clicked the 15pointer, then the speed up button popped up. I clicked away 4gems, then I swiped bucket over the 15pointer, voila I got 15 LB points!
It?s not as fast as say collecting from chickens or cows, but it is FAST in accumulating LB points.
I also used the yellow boost because I would use less gems since I needed 1500 LB points (breakdown provided below).
1500 LB points (no boost)
100 speed up x 4 is ... 400 gems
1500 LB points (7 gem boost)
67 speed up x 4 is 268 gems plus 7 gem boost is ... 275 gems
1500 LB points (30 gem boost, double points)
50 speed up x 4 is 200 gems plus 30 gem boost is ... 230 gems
It took me less than 2 minutes to speed up 50x and got the milestone pet.
That was the only time I used the 15pointer. My limit is 250 gems since that?s about the cost when a pet goes on sale.
I?ve encountered many many many players who use the 15pointer. Some uses it from the start, a declaration so to speak, some uses it at the last minute, erasing the countless hours of hard work put in by fellow farmers. One time on my board, I had 4 players discussing on each other?s wall when they should stop using 15pointer ... they decided on 35,000. Lol.
My take is that LB is designed for high rollers. I?ve heard of high roller table. I wonder why there isn?t a high roller LB ...
Meow. I digress. Meow.
