Been playing now for about 6- weeks and enjoying the game. During that time I have repeatedly run Starbase 24 and Gorn Minefield missions for Dil and drops. Last night, myself and one other person carried the Gron minefield missions as others were either door sitting or chasing fire flys. We finished the mission and I got first place and end message had two purple drops. During Starbase 24 I finished 3rd a few times.
Now, what I dont understand is how the ranking are determined? Finishing first I could understand on the mission where most folks were not active but if everyone is active how is the determination of place done? damage or some other mechanism?
