# Gustav Islands. What’s the best strategy?

Ideally you would want to complete a PvE island under an hour to get max points. What are the deterioration rates of points after an hour? Do the points start to decrease after the island has opened back up or after someone has first attacked it?

As soon a the island pops up, there is a 1 hour timer. If I’m that time you don’t beat the island, the points start to degrade slowly. I do not know what rate it goes at.

What’s the best strategy? Kill them.

I’m fairly sure that’s wrong. It’s when you HIT it the first time

There is a formula in Zami’s(Mech’s) spreadsheet.

VP earned for PvE islands after 1 hour = VP<1hr x (1.0225 - (0.0225 x Hours))
VP stops regressing at 50% of VP<1hr value at a time of 22hr 13min

This table shows the transition of VP based on the formula.

Timer starts when pve shows up not when its hit.

Allways kill all pve before do first Pvp so your team gets extra points.

I believe Loe is correct for when the PvE island is unlocked the first time but I heard from someone else that later on, it depends on when it was hit

I may need to check

That’s not correct but seems a lot people are under that same impression. The time starts when the island is available. PG should add a timer to any island that is still within the 1 hour or juat a timer that shows how long each island has been up.
