No Prize - Do you have one?

Within my alliance we decided that getting 1st in DDQ gets you a no prize.

Today I was just seconds away, but missed out. It remains elusive to me.

Do you have one?

    Nope, but got second in DDQ yesterday for the first time ever, does that get me an almost-no-prize?

    I don't think their should be a prize for several reasons:
    1. Clash counts towards total and that's only available once every 5 days.
    2. You can't pick a start time and there is no point value variations.  Therefore first person to hit max score wins, people in a favorable time spot win every time.
    3. It's not really a competitive event and shouldn't be.
    That being said I got first once and it did feel kinda awesome.  I've gotten top 5 a few other times.

    Oh man, I didn't count on people not knowing what a "No-Prize" is...

    My fault!

    I would have loved to recieve one of these when I was about 12 years old.

    I've placed 1st a couple times in DDQ and top 10 a whole bunch of times. I think I must play mine at a good time in the day because when I don't get that high it's always when I start it earlier or later than usual or get distracted midway through. Not that it matters, but it is cool to see your own name at the top.....

    Just placed first on the last day of Star Lord's crash. Took third the following day on the first day of Moon Knight. Would have had first again but I wiped twice to x23.

    Joining an event and being the first person in a slice. For that brief moment it says only one person is playing the event. Just as arbitrary as 1st in DDQ, seems no-prize worthy, right?

    Makes me wonder how many MPQ-players are actual  (veteran) Marvel fans?

    I've been top 10 a few times, including 2nd 3 days ago, but never gave it much thought until this thread.

    I think if one was to make a concerted effort then the best time would be on a later day of the 5 day DDQ cycle with a champed version of the Crash character.

    I assume most people knock out Crash of the Titans as soon as possible, so most people that can beat it easily do so on days 1 and 2. By day 5 it comes down to people with undercovered versions getting lucky.

    My Mordo is champed, so I probably could win tomorrow, but if I really want that no prize, I may wait until Monday.

    I was wondering if I could get a ruling from the forum:
    Does beating the "Enter the Dark Avengers" node in the main screen of Prodigal Sun using three of Gamora's "The Deadliest Woman..." passives qualify me for a No Prize?

    While I have never read the comics much (though I've been trying to get into them now) I've been a long-term fan of the TV and Movie adaptations and also try to get caught up on major story arcs through summaries and wikis.

    I hear ya. I ended up 5th this morning. The Gwen battle actually slowed me down a lot.
