    Points get higher with each passing sub. So, for Strange Sight, playing for higher scores mean clearing the harder sub first. Harder sub = higher clearing time = fewer points maximised.

    So, the hardest to easiest realm/choices would be middle node (Sentry nodes), first node (Maggia) and lastly, the third node or the Ninja nodes.

    Totally agree with the strategy, but based on my roster and timing door 1 is my slowest, followed by 2, then 3. The sentries actually speed up Polaris.

    I think you have 550 roster?

    After 3 years playing I just learned you don’t need all 3 artifacts to fight Kaecilius and can fight him every day . This explains why I finish 50 places lower in this PvE than every other one . 
    It's always best to check your points on the leaderboard as soon as you finish your clears to make sure that you have the same amount as other people. Once in a blue moon I'll think I'm done with my clears and then see that I'm short like 200 pts somewhere and then will need to do one more clear on an easy node.
    Or, since is the "WORST MPQ Moment" thread, you'll find that you accidentally did an extra clear for a node without realizing it.

    Like I did yesterday.   :s
    Always focus on the amount of times that you have cleared a node. Sometimes the game screws up when it shows the amount of points and if you've done the full amount it could still show that it's at full points even when it isn't. I got burned on a wave node not too long ago when I had done the two clears in cl10 but it was still at full points, then I did another clear and it fixed itself so there I was sitting in 1st place with my lovely overclear when realistically I should have just been in the top 20.

    It happens even during grindIng.  I remember I did 2 grinds and I accidentally clicked that node again and it showed me points. I played that node, cleared it and I gained + 0 point.

    Is it actually possible to make a match against an AI team with Prof X on it without it somehow leaving a match-4 for them to crush my soul?
    This game is so troll-y sometimes.

    I did that a few months ago.

    Cleared 1 or 2 of a wave node. It still showed the node having 100% on the bar.

    Did another clear, then it went down to like 1 third. I only found out when I compared my score to everyone else and I was maybe 300 points ahead of literally everyone.

    Strangely, that happened to me only when grinding, and not doing the first 3 or 4 clears. I suspect it's because we hit the node so fast that the server couldn't update the visual in time. I noticed that the it happens only when I clicked the node really fast.

    No. Furthermore, consider yourself lucky if the match-4 doesn't cascade into another match-4.

    I could have sworn I chose SCL 9 for Operation Spider Silk. I start playing today and it tells me I chose SCL10.

    All depends on the roster strength, I suppose.

    What team do you mainly use for CL9? If you have a decent Shang Chi then you can beat most nodes on CL10.

    I mainly use 4 Star Rocket/Groot Polaris and Juggs for PVE. I should use Shang Chi more he is one of the better 5 Stars  I have along with BRB.

    How many covers do you have for Shang Chi? Oh, and how many green covers do you have for your 5* Thor? If your Thor sucks then you could use Valkyrie in his place. This event isn't too bad overall in terms of difficulty but you should play around with Shang Chi, America and Valkyrie/Thor and see if you have any success with them. I also like to do +2 red, +2 purple and +5 critical boosts. And then for essential or challenge nodes that are a massive pain I'll do +2 all ap, +5 match damage and +5 critical boosts.

    My 5 Star Thor is only 1 cover on each. My Valkyrie is pretty Strong same for Chavez. My Shang Chi has 5 Purple covers 2 Blue and 1 Red.  I will try him and Valkyrie.

    I set my alarm 25 minutes before pve ends and I overslept. When I woke up, I had only 3 minutes left to clear. My placement plummented from T10 to T1XX.

    I had 2 matches in a row in PvP against boosted Onslaught teams where there was a match-4 or better for LITERALLY every turn the AI took.
    I freaking HATE Onslaught and Prof X boosted weeks. I hate hate hate hate hate them.

    DST in America, and I'm too late for doing my final clears. Will need to remember this for the next two weeks or so.
