Trying to deepen my understanding of how PvE scoring/cooldowns work. Any insight is appreciated.

Let's say that there are three players (Steve, Sam, and Peggy) playing a hypothetical 1-node 24h sub-event. If it matters, let's say the node is worth 500 pts at full and 0 at empty.

Steve logs in immediately after the sub opens and plays 4 clears, then waits until the event is almost over and plays until the node isn't worth anything anymore.

Sam logs in immediately as well, plays 5 clears, then waits the same as Steve and then plays until the node is worthless.

Peggy logs in immediately and plays until the node is worthless, then waits the same as the others and plays until the node is worthless again.

Who wins the sub? By how many points?

25Just Dropped InAs far as I can tell, the recharge rate is constant despite the number of clears, at 33% every 24 hours. The penalty for a 5th clear is a 33% reduction. Does the point penalty for clears increase as the number of clears increases?

25Just Dropped InThe "best" strategy involves getting the most points with the fewest number of penalties. The more times a node is cleared, the more penalties incurred. Thus, even though the node recharges at the same rate and the penalty value doesn't change, the problem lies in taking too many penalties.

28Just Dropped In719Critical ContributorNo, the node will recharge at most 167 points over 24 hours.

Sam's node would be worth 167 points after 5 clears and refresh to 333 points after 24 hours.

28Just Dropped In28Just Dropped Inhave instead set the node to zero out after N clears regardless of its current worth, adding to the perceived ambiguities. To be completely honest, I [obviously] hadn't paid all that much attention to the exact points potential unless I was fighting for a final placement.)could
