I'm sure this has been discussed before but I can't seem to find the correct search words to get an answer. I was wondering how does one go about maximizing ones points during pve? I do the suggested 5x times and many of times I've done all 6 rounds and on every node and I'm still not getting as many points as I've seen others have. What is the secret?

I have no idea if this is perfectly ideal but it's usually good for top 10 in the post-tapping era.First clears should start the minute the event/sub starts:Gateway Loaner Node (1x)

1st Easy Node (1x)

4-star Essential Node (4x)

3-star Essential Node (4x)

2-star Essential Node (4x)

2nd Easy Node (1x)

3rd Easy Node (1x)

1st Hard Node (1x)

2nd Hard Node (1x)

3rd Hard Node (4x)

2nd Hard Node (3x)

1st Hard Node (3x)

5-star Essential Node (4x - this is only SCL 7 or higher)

3rd Easy Node (3x)

2nd Easy Node (3x)

1st Easy Node (3x)

The last clears should be as close to the end of the sub as possible:

Do 2 clears of each node, from the 1st Easy Node to the 4-star Essential Node, startingwith the 1st easy node and working your way up.

Clear the Gateway Loaner node as many times as it takes to put it at zero points.

Clear the 5-star Essential Node 3 times.

Do 1 clear of each other node, starting with the 1st easy node and working your way up.

This will give you 7 clears of each node and get you close to maximizing the point value regeneration in-between clears. This is about as min-maxy as you can get, but for competitive placement the difference between point totals in the top 10 are pretty narrow.

813Critical ContributorA couple of pve playing optimally and you'll get a good idea of what realistic placement is for you. Also worth noting, if you don't have a lot of boosted characters or pve busting teams (5* teams, Grocket, gamora, Medusa, strange, etc), you'll place lower since speed rules in pve.

In two-day subs, that means starting the timers as fast as possible (four hits for regular nodes, two hits for wave nodes), and then hitting them once again the next day as soon as the Points are back to full. Then you end grind when the sub is closing to mop up as many Points as you can.
