Mission changed, so it officially. Changes every day. So 5 chances at a purple spidey then I guess. The rng wants me to have red capt it seems. Maxed and threw out 4 since the event started...
So there is no point in NOT doing them right now as far as I understand? I counted and it would push me about 300 pts below 1st to do all the quests. So I don't think the rubberbanding is so much that the algorithm is trying to get you there in just the first runthrough of the round. I guess it requires less grinding maybe if I don't, but the scoring still doesn't make perfect sense
Hate to disseminate this information since it'll likely give me a harder time in the tourney but here's how I think it works:
Rubberbanding has a cap of some number of points per mission. For example, in the first set of missions the venom/yelena and bullseye were both capped at 105 but other missions were capped at 30 or some other number.
Repeatables have a certain number of stacks until depleted. When depleted, they are still do-able but are now worth 0 points. It takes ~x hours (2?) for the stacks to replenish again and be worth points. This is similar to the juggernaut heroic where missions had stacks but in this tournament, the stacks regenerate over time. This means it is in your best interest, regardless of your position, to play throughout the day and maximize these stacks.
When fully regenerated, the repeatables will give out points based on your position a la rubberbanding. However, the point value will still go down to 0 after a number of completions regardless of your position.
If you are in first place, you cannot power grind for 2 hours to make a huge lead. You will need to play throughout the day when the stacks are replenished. Likewise, if you are super far behind you won't get top 10 just go completing everything. You will need to go through the same process but given a little help due to increased point cap from rubberbanding.
Of course, I could be wrong but this is what I gathered from playing through. Unfortunately for me, I doubt I'll get top 3 because I'm spending time with in-laws and it seems pretty hard to catch up to the top this time if there's a significant gap.
Then please explain to me how I was #1 last night at 1082 pts and woke up this morning at#52 with a 292 point gap between me and #1 and the most I would get from repeatable was 4 points. Right now I am #14 at 1226 and #1 is at 1467. I currently get 4 points from maggia and 6 points from daken. How am I supposed to catch up? How can someone be 200+ points in the lead?
Got a heroic token...and a yellow wolverine x-force.
Not sure if i should be happy or bummed i didn't get a purple spidey
Another thing about the event: Who else gets a lot of health packs? ^^ I'm at 27 at the moment
On a slightly different topic, the reward tiers are messed up. Rank 16-50 gets the green cover, Force Field Crush. which requires the blue cover power to have any effect. Rank 4-15 gets the blue cover.
The blue and green covers should be switched so that all the 1-50 winners get something useful.
If you read Force Field Crush description carefully, you will see it creates Force Bubbles if there are none on board.
