    haha they dont, its rule made by someone who doesnt know how the game works

    HOWEVER! i do understand where the misconception could come from. You could (to your detriment) prevent the point multiplier from increasing by only returning one diver at a time and never a full sub. this would still increase difficulty and increase you're cycling through the waves, but for someone unfamilar with the game they could confuse staying on the same point multiplier with staying on same difficutly

    Point scabbing is when the fish go up and bite the scoring digits, causing them to bleed, then you maneuver your sub up to apply a tourniquet to the affected area on the poor digit victim, promoting coagulation. Since the sun is always up, said coagulation occurs in a rapid fashion, creating scabs. There you have it. Point scabbing, and it is allowed. You're welcome.

    Oh ... voting yes. Great score, Bill!
