Event scores  What am I missing?

Posts: 2 Just Dropped In
So recently I was playing in the Wakanda event, and I was really happy at first that I had all 4 of the boosted heroes, so I could do all the nodes. And I did, twice. 1 hour before close I cleared all the nodes again (i.e. got the extra 100ish points per node). And still, people in the top 3 had 3k more points. So what am I missing? Is it somewhere clarified how these points are earned? How can I get 3k more points with no points available?

Propaly it is this:If player can do they initial clears whithin 30 minuts and then finishing clears also whithin 30 minutes, then duriring that 23h wait more points regenarated. If you add all the nodes it can add few k of points, And Ive seen people doint it  search YT and ya find how they do it.0

Indeed, the longer the gap between the countdown timer starting (during which time points refresh/increase again) and hitting the node for the last time(s), the more points you will end up getting from your last clears.You want to get the timers started as quickly as possible, and wait as you as you can/dare to clear at the end.
I believe there are strategies to increase points around order of clears etc, but ultimately the principle is the same  generate more points by leaving countdowns to refresh node points for as long as possible.

Did you finish all 6 clears within a day? If yes, you cleared wrongly.
Clearing story events are divided into 2 parts: 1) the initial clears 2) the grind.
This is how you clear story events up to SCL 9 with no wave node and running a 24 hour countdown in the following order:
Z= easy nodes 1, 2, 3
H= hard nodes 1, 2, 3
E = essential nodes (2*, 3*, 4*, 5*)
IE = initial essential node (this is the first node where the game gives you the champed 4* to use, and which unlocks all other nodes)
Part 1: Initial Clears Order
IE x 1 clear, 4*E x 4 clears, 3*E x 4 clears, 2*E x 4 clears,
Z1x1, Z2 x 1, Z3x 1
H1 x 1, H2x 1, H3 x 4
H2 x 3, H1 x 3,
Z3 x 3, Z2 x 3, Z1 x 3
5*E * 4
Let's say if you take 30 minutes to finish the above, then 30 minutes before the event ends, you do the grind this way:
Part 2: Grinds
IE x 3, 5* E x 3
(Z1 x 1, Z 2 x 1, Z3 x 1, H1 x 1, H2 x 1, H3 x 1) repeat this for another 2 times.
Lastly,
2*E x 3, 3* Ex 3, 4* E x 3
For wave nodes, do 2 initial clears, instead of 4.
For 48 hours event, you hit the node when they reach full points once each in the order that you do the initial clears. Then the next day, you do your grinds.
FAQ
1) How do you tell whether it's a 24 hour or 48 hour event countdown?
Look at the front page or the top right hand corner of the subevent. It will show you.
2) How do I know if it's reached full points?
You need to be familiar with each event or you can simply wait until the countdown timer for each individual node to reach zero.
3) What are Easy nodes 1, 2, 3 and hard nodes 1, 2, 3?
Those are nodes where you can choose any 3 characters. 1 is the lowest difficulty level, and 3 is the highest difficulty level. You can tell by looking at the number of points of the nodes.

Thank you! You all have been very helpful and informative!0

I have used the following order (up to cl9):Open:IE x 1, 2*E x 4, 3*E x 4, 4*E x 4Z1 x 4, Z2 x 4, Z3 x 4H1 x 4, H2 x 4, H3 x 45*E x 4Close:IE x 3, 5*E x 3H1 x 3, H2 x 3, H3 x 3Z1 x 3, Z2 x 3, Z3 x 32*E x 3, 3*E x 3, 4*E x 3
Naturally this is a general list, as there isn't always an "initial essential" node and wave nodes mix things up a bit. And I don't know how effective it is without Thanos.
But an alliance mate who routinely placed t1 suggested this as a general approach a couple years ago, and I have generally found that following it allows me to increase position between the open and the close.1

which scl do you play?
which teams do you use besides the essentials?
did you clear the normal nodes 4 times and the Waves 2 times?0 
Perhaps a more simple and streamlined explanation would be useful.Step 1: When the new subchapter begins each day, play each mission until it is no longer worth “full points.” Typically this is 4 times. However, wave missions should only be played 2 times and any mission with a yellow circle around it (where they give you the required 4* character) should only be played 1 time.Step 2: The next day, before the subchapter ends (and another one begins), play each mission 3 more times. (After doing so, the mission will be worth 0 points.) Typically this will take about as long to do as the first set of clears did the previous day.For a higherlevel of competitive play, the order you complete the missions (also known as “nodes”) matters. But simply breaking your play into two chunks will make a big difference, for the reasons noted above.1

For me, it takes about 6070 minutes to finish the initial set of missions, then 4045 to finish before the clock expires. My biggest frustration is when it is a 36 hour event, and after you finish your “full rewards” levels, it tells you “full rewards in 2 days 6 hours” or something which would be 624 hours AFTER the event is over. It does this in EVERY event  I can only assume events were once longer and they have not reset the timers...If I can get through 4 missions on full rewards, am I better off doing mission 5 and getting like 35% rewards, then finishing mission 6 just before the clock expires after 6 grows rewards, or should I do 6 AND 5 before the clock? Is there value in letting 2 sit vs. 1, since #6 is not growing behind #5, is it?
and don’t forget that once you do missions 6, most nodes will let you go again for a still respectable point rewards, so they really have 7 turns, not 6...0 
This all depends a bit on roster and SCL difficulty relative to it... but!
The way Hound said to play starting clears is actually sub optimal.
Starting the hard, bigger points, node sooner lets it lose fewer points from waiting for the timer to start. But that comes at the cost of delaying all the other nodes (not essentials, just the trivial and hard leg, which are ordered and can't be started before clearing the previous one at least once) a little bit from starting their timers and overall more points are lost there than what was gained from the hard node.

In your case, the points for the 567th win are all increasing over time after those first 4 wins. So if you are able to delay your grind by even a couple of minutes to let the node score tick up by one point, then your final score will increase by 3 (as you're grinding it 3 times).

I agree with what Kolence said about my clears being suboptimal.
The rationale for clearing 5* node last and grinding 5* node first or second because this node has the highest potential to screw up your clears and it also takes the longest time to clear. This applies only to 4* players and probably (single) champed nonmeta 5* players without meta 5*. If 5* node screw you up, you could miss 3 to 6 clears of your other non 5* essential nodes doing the optimal route.
For those with meta 5* like iHulkoye or Thorpocalyse, this shouldn't be a problem and they can clear 5* node first quickly. Also, top 1 placement from SCL 7 and above are dominated by players with some of the meta 5* that I mentioned above. So, even if you could do the optimal clear, you won't be able to touch top 1 placement. The only time when I can hit top 1 placement is when there are wave nodes (with Mindless ones). That's where even top 5* players could underestimate the timing needed to clear them and miss out 1 to 2 grinds. What I can guarantee you is, if you have Polaris and R4G decently covered, you will be able to get top 10 in SCL 6 & 7 easily when you have all the essential characters rostered. More often than not, you will get top 5 placements, provided that you are focused on clearing and grinding.0 
I play cl8 on a regular basis, i somtimes do 9 or 10 depending on how much free time i have. I come t5 most events without any trouble. I use the 4x at start 3x at end method (2x for wave nodes) i always do essential nodes first starting with 5* and working my way down. I then do each non essential node once and work backwards from most points to least, this takes me about 2025 minutes. I then wait until there is less than 30 minutes left and do the reverse order for the final 3 clears. I use hulkoye for the essentials and i use rocket, juggernaut and Polaris for the none essentials (i swap Polaris for gamora if more that one of the early nodes has an enemy with 2k+ health).1
