Really? With a brutal amount of combos and clearing it insanely fast I was able to do it online. I feel proud of that, but it's definitely doable.

Maybe I just like DMC too much. (Franchise, not just the game)

Having a bit of trouble on 17 too. Best i've done is 160K in the first arena but ended the match with 237,840. It's the final guys i'm losing. The dream runner big guy combo. I might save my DT for the end section instead of wasting it on quick kills of the witches. Seems like the enemies and the distance between the battles means you have to pretty much get no damage in the battles. Hard work for sure :P

I just read it's 246K - meh so bloomin close!

Edit: Woop woop - just got it.
Got 304,591 and 528 on leaderboards

This is what helped me. When you are against the first red / blue spawn. Aquila the guy with 2 rings so he's stunned. Then Arbitor yy..y the red. Grab him with RT+Y so he doesn't fall (try to position yourself so he as a bit of land distance before attacking him). Repeat and take him down. Then onto blue guy. Demon evade when he attacks and use Scythe YY...YYY then LT+B get him into the air. While you are spinning the scythe. Switch to Aqulia and charge up LT+B (buffer the move) when he's about to land release. Then follow up with a finishing combo. You end up with a SS rank maybe S and 15-20K if done well. Then the next area you are already starting with atleast an A ranking by the time you get there. This helps.

It's nice to run over jump Aquila - Buy in then switch quickly to scythe - land - charge LT+Y (if possible get it fully charged). Pan your camera away from the big tank before you run over but make sure he's in your range. Hopefully if he's close you'll be juggling him along with a bunch of the other guys. Scythe and use the YY...YY combo. Then YY then pause switch to Aquila for another buy in then give them a Eryx RT+B fully charged. If you can manage to take no damage here you should be 150K+. I managed 190K just after my post here (the first red/blue helped a ton).

It really helped not using my DT until I came against the final harder wave of enemies. Then just took the 2 dreamrunners out as fast as I could while DT (RT+X pull in - then arbitor YY...Y kills them quick). Those guys are hard to avoid while having another enemy trying to hurt you. So I think it helps to take them out first. The other enemies are much much easier to figure out what they are doing

Great tips from everyone - helped a ton. Thanks!
