1.) Hit essential node (if it exists) to unlock the required team-up
nodes and the first regular node once. as many points as I can from
nodes that still have a couple points on them. (Typically less than 10)
Yes. Although, people generally called the three nodes that required 2*/3*/4* on your roster as essential nodes and called the node that forces you to use all three featured as loaner node (since it provided you a loan, if you don't have one.) Just want to let you know so that you know what people are referring to exactly.
These steps are preferred to be completed as fast as possible as well. Most competitive players will get all the clocks start within 1-2h. (2h is probably already too slow.)
:snip:Oh, and I should note since I forgot the second sub of Meet Rocket & Groot is a 48 hour sub, I'm assuming what I want to do is try and tap all the nodes as soon as they fully refresh once, going in descending point value?
I really should give IM40 a shot. I know everybody swears by him, but I've never liked using him.
When I do this I still barely finish under 50. When I do this I am 1 or 2 after clearing the nodes 4 times but 30-60 minutes before the end time I'm back hundreds to thousands back. Not sure what I'm doing wrong?
