Think 15 is going to be a very good score for anyone.
By my count the max possible score is a 33, but pretty sure that is a near impossibility to get. (Would have to play on Brutal, Soloing the Captain, no restarts, getting more "squad kills" than full teams and only using either melee or ranged attacks.)
Guns! We need BIG Guns! Then again what do I know I'm crazy!
Soloing the captain early on is baaaad for many reasons. 1) You won't have the accuracy for range, or melee skills to be confident in hitting. If you have beefed up a single skill, it usually won't be your evade skill, so if you do miss, you get eaten. 2) The biggest value you can get early on is XP, and if you solo your captain, your squad don't get any development skills, and you'll need them for the last mission of the tutorial! 3) You'll run the risk of beating my Lone Wolf challenge score of 31 kills

slayernz The rules say nothing about which three levels you have to lone wolf to max that portion of scoring.
xdesperado Can't find where it says in johndramey's rules that the tutorial doesn't count.
Glad I asked the question beforehand.
What I read is that we have 21 levels to: Pass three missions with 3, 2, and 1 Templar : 18 points Pass three campaigns without restart. 3 points Pass three campaigns without losses. 3 points Pass three missions mêlée only. 6 points Pass three missions ranged only. 6 points Oh, and up to 4 points for difficulty, although of course it'll be easier to get the other 36 points above on normal, sacrificing 3 points. Anyway, it adds up to 40 points you can control, and if you're clever, you'll never leave a level with ammo, and only one Templar makes it out of the last level, etc. Just making sure we're all playing the same game.
Captain Power and his soldiers of the future stand ready to compete!
They're somewhat confused that their shiny CGI outfits have been replaced by giant lumbering heaps of metal. But hey, anything's better than being canceled and these guys are ancient relics as much as their gear, so they'll be fine...
