I have been unable to find a definitive answer to this, a plain English version to accompany the calc would be good :)
Bruno has provided the following calculation, which does't clarify what Rank is derived from.
'Based on their Rank when the puzzle closes' - ? How is this derived? is it the rank of players as evolvers, soloists, how many? should I be doing more evos to improve group rank?
As far as I remember, group scores are calculated following this formula:
Points = Max(1, RoundUp( ( 1 - (Rank - 1)/(NumGroups - 1) )^5 * X))
This formula gives the number of points that each group will earn at the end of a puzzle, based on their rank when the puzzle closes. These rank points are distinct from and not directly related to Score points.
