**8**Just Dropped In
I did a search and didn't find a thread on this, I apologize if there is already one. I'm curious, is there some kind of trick to scoring higher points on the events? I have beaten all matches in the few recent events but yet, there a still people able to get upwards of up to 2,000 more points than I am, even though I come back before an event is over and redo all the stages again. I'm I doing something wrong when it comes to completing missions? Again, I apologize if this topic has come up before hand.

Hope that helps.

If they play it again, the node will be worth 100 points with the missing 200 points recharging over a period of 48 hours. After a sixth clear, the node will be worth 0 points with a recharge period of 72 hours. So if this ideal player repeats the node 6 times they will have 1500 points (4*300 + 200 + 100).

Now imagine the player only does four repetitions at the beginning of the sub, and then two at the end. They will collect 1200 points at the beginning, and the node will be left at 200 points with a 24 hour timer. So the node will regain all its points by the end of the sub, so the fifth repetition will also be worth 300 points. The sixth will then be 200 points. So now the player has 1700 points for the same number of repetitions.

In this last scenario the node will be left with 100 points, so if the player wants to do a seventh clear they can increase their point total to 1800.

So in short, the optimal way to play the node in a 24 hour sub is to play it repeatedly at the very start of the sub until it reduces in value (once for team-up nodes, twice for survival nodes, and four times for regular nodes), then wait until just before the end to repeat the node until it is worth zero points. For 48 hour subs it is a little different: the node will fully recharge at the 24 hour mark, so you can fit one additional play in at that point.

Now none of us are "ideal" players in the sense that it takes time to complete a match, so there are a few other considerations too:

Lastly, it is worth remembering that the majority of players are not going to play optimally like this: it is a lot more effort than most people are willing to put into a mobile game.

If you're not trying to place first, you can still use this information to maximise your points for the amount of effort you want to expend. The main things to take away are (1) play the first four clears of a node early in the sub, and (2) try to put as much time as you can between those initial clears and any further ones you want to make. Even waiting 12 hours will give noticeably more points than doing the extra clears immediately.
