Aq points

Okay. I'm not newb and I'm in an alliance that runs map5 x 3 but we only completed it in two bgs the first day. The difficulty rises as the week goes on. I asked the leader so if we're not completing them why not drop to map4 and his response was points are all that matters. In my eyes completion and getting rewards is all that matters. Please any info

    Your honest opinion tell me I'm not wrong. Completion and the extra rewards are what count

    We completed one bg map 5 lost the other map5 and completed map4 in bg3. It said AQ won. So am I just tripping or is it for the better
  • FYI, beating the Boss results in a WIN for that group (even if not 100%), meaning the Prestige goes up next day from that group. And you also get the T4CFrag crystal just by beating boss.
    Exploring fully 100% earns the additional reward of getting the Map Crystal.

    Not beating the boss (LOSS) results in a decrease from that group towards next day Prestige. Then alll 3 groups +/- from Win/Loss are combined to determine alliance-wide increase/decrease in Prestige (and thus difficulty rating of opponents, as well as possible Points) for the next day.
  • ...also (FYI), because a LOSS in a higher map results in more of a Prestige drop than does a lower map. So I could see an alliance's point of running Map-5 in an extra group even if won't win it in order to get higher points (so long as you can get close to finishing) and at the same time be a little “Prestige Throddling” as opposed to say winning a map-3 in that final group (which would make things harder later in week, without really much benefit of rewards since map-3 rewards less stuff).

    In general, I would prefer to complete Map X 100% than fail Map X+1, but the details do matter. Every 100% completion awards a map crystal which you're losing if you're not 100% completing a higher map. But points count towards the weekly milestone rewards. I would say as a general rule of thumb that if you can complete Map 4 100% but can't complete Map 5 at all, you should do Map 4. If you can complete Map 5 every day and you clear it 100% most of the time, but fail some of the time, I would switch to Map 5. If you're in the middle, I would do Map 5 on day 1 and Map 4 the rest of the week until you get strong enough to complete Map 5 100% practically every time on day 1, then slowly move upward.

    DNA300 that was what I said. We lost a 900k rated guy because the prestige went down daily but we're about to hit 50mil milestone. Abd now on the damn near final day I guess the leader realized and dropped it map4 x 3. IDK man. Just trying to get some insight and not look like a fool when I finally do speak upon it. Thank y'all fellas. Goodluck

    nothing wrong with "stretch" goals, where points are indeed all that matter. If you don't have full commitment from 30 accounts, better to swing for the fences and accrue more overall points than go with safe but fewer points, since there's always a chance Safe goes sideways as well. map 4 and 5 difference for clearing boils down to 200 t4bc frags, 500 chips and a getting a t1a in your crystal or not. The point difference is much greater, so your leader isn't wrong in that perspective.
