Here's a video of me getting 61k. This isn't exactly a guide as you cannot simply read a guide or watch a video and become good in this game. However, since there aren't any videos of someone getting above 50,000, I decided to upload a video of myself playing this game. It might give you some pointers (or inspiration) on how to beat the waves to get enough points.

This game has some serious control lag issues, and it will screw you over at crucial moments, but stay determined and keep practicing. When you're able to consistently beat wave 1, you won't be too far off being good enough to beat wave 3 (and hopefully unlock the achievement). Just keep in mind that you should make sure you beat all the warlords to maximize scores.

The score layout:
Destroying a portion of a wall (even your own): 125 points
Killing an AI warlord: 2,500 points
Winning a wave: 5,000 x wave# points (5,000 for wave 1, 10,000 for wave 2, 15,000 for wave 3, etc)

Keep in mind that if you use the powershot and hit a wall, the ball loses its ownership to you and you won't get points for consecutive wall hits. You will only get consecutive points if you deflect a normal shot that bounces off walls.

If you beat the first three waves by killing all warlords yourself, you should have at least 52,500 points, which will be enough to get Archduke. But keep in mind that the first winner of this achievement (Ginger Kingpin) reported that he reached 50k a few times without the achievement unlocking, so it could be possible that the score requirement is just a little above it.

A good tip is to prioritize killing the green and cyan warlords before moving onto the blue. You'll only make it much harder on yourself, as you'll basically leave both sides open for attack from the green and cyan warlords. If you find all AI's to play very aggressive, try playing defensive. If they are deflecting all over the place, their AI is set to "kill". Be patient and let them dumb down before going back on offense. If the green and cyan warlords are protecting their sides adjacent to you, attack the blue, and wait till they move away so you can shoot their walls.

Anyway, this was a lot more than I was going to write. If you have any questions, please post them, and I'll try to answer them as quickly as I can. I'll also update this guide if I think of more to write.

Good luck!
