Points awarded each battle in pve should be based on number of color combinations based on the team characters (bonus for using an all GotG, x men, avengers, Sinister 6, etc teams), bonus points number of 3, 4, 5, and 5+ matches, winning under specific conditions, etc. This would give more randomness to the game and give opportunity for other players to have a better position in each event. As a bonus you could start at any time during your slice without stressing yourself with finishing fast knowing that your score will depend on your combos and clearing all the nodes before the time is up and still be top 10 with some skill and luck.
I have the exact same experience as his alliance member. I was asking, "Why am I top 1 after green-checking all the nodes but I end up not being top 1 at the end of the event?"My curiosity wants to know the answer to "How can I still be at the top 1 at the end of the event?" This led me to googling for answers and it brought me to reddit MPQ and this forum. This is how I knew the "trick" to playing PvEs optimally.I guess this could be deliberate?
