Mastering the PAX East Leaderboard

Published: Feb 24, 2020 ~ Dan Scalise

Rescue Pets is an adorable and addicting idle game that is supporting real animals like Red! For the first time, we have a new player leaderboard! A lot of players have been asking to add more features to compete with their friends, and this is our first step!


Only players who started during PAX can compete this time to make it fair. Don’t worry, we have other exciting leaderboard features coming for existing players soon!


How Rank Works:


For the duration of PAX East, on the left side of the screen, you can see your current rank. It compares your shelter points with all of our players! Click your rank to get a bigger view of it, with your dog’s name! The window that pops up is very useful for sharing with your friends because you can see your dog’s name and costume along with your rank! Take screenshots and share!


The top 10 players at any time will see their corgi wear the CROWN! It can easily change so never give up! If you’re in the top ten, GET A FREE PRIZE at our booth at PAX East! Show us your corgi crown!


How to get a high rank?


– Keep getting more Shelter Points in Shelter by upgrading assets like Food, Toy, Bath, etc! Look for the assets that increase your Shelter Points (the icon that looks like a house).


– Only your base Shelter Points count towards rank (the shelter points when it’s white). Using Health Potions and Cute Pix boosts, and petting won’t affect your rank. They are still useful for temporarily increasing your Shelter Points to help unlock things quicker, but will not increase your Rank!


– Prestige! After 500k Shelter Points, you have the option of going to a new shelter. Rescuing a new shelter “resets” your shelter points (you are starting a new shelter from scratch after all), BUT the permanent “prestige” boosts you get from doing it make it worth it! Your first prestige boost is a Gold boost. Every gold producing asset you purchase and upgrade like Donors and Mailers will be boosted in your second shelter! This means you will be able to get back to your old shelter points faster + climb from there even faster!


– Use Treats consistently to get more gold even faster! (Pro-tip: you can combine treats with Instant Cash. Just use a treat first to get more Gold/second. Then use an Instant Cash to make it rain Gold!)


– Tell your friends to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram! When we reach 125 followers on Twitter or 200 on Facebook/Instagram, we will give everyone a 2x boost for a day! (We also share more tips on the game on these platforms, so make sure you’re following)


Top 5 Tips:


1. Never Give Up


This is a lesson that’s dear to my heart ~ and it applies to Rescue Pets, as well! Rank can change very easily. Sometimes, the top players may think they’re far ahead of the rest and take a break. It’s then that the diligent players who keep coming back to collect their idle cash, pet their Corgi, and upgrade assets for their shelter will catch up. Smart prestiging, treat boosts, and consistent idle reward collection can make a HUGE difference.

2. Use Treats Consistently


Treats give you extra gold! Make sure you come back to the game when they expire to activate more. This will give you the edge against the others.


We have a 4x treat that lasts a whole week! This is perfect for making sure you’re using all your time in the event wisely! Find it in the green Pawprint tab under the Gold Boost Treats ribbon.


Combine these with Instant Cash to get outrageous amounts of gold RIGHT NOW!


3. Buy our Starter Pack

Our Starter pack has treats and materials to get you off on the right track to the event! If you just want the adorable costumes, this will help you out! If you want to be in the top 10, this can give you the edge! PLUS, this will support Red, a friendly dog looking for a home at Dog Gone Seattle!


4. Become a Pet Superhero!


Want 2x Gold all the time? Go to our shop and become a Pet Superhero! For only a dollar or two a week, you can get this thrilling gold boost to keep you ahead of the pack WHILE helping Dog Gone Seattle and our mission! Thank you so much! This helps us make the game better, too!
