I startyed late o Steam over europa as i heard a little something about who was ahead..
my personal best friend was on the rank 8th region for that round he spend full round to gather PP and build his LM and his city... he made about 150 K and was rank 400 something
i did NOTHING.. i say NOTHING and was rank 504 with 109 K from region win bonus
so to say late starters get nthing is not true
landmark however does have a very unbalanced output of Prestige if you have to many level 1 adds not hauling and going inactive thus lowering the prestige of a very very high tonnaged landmark thet willer never hit level 9 for unlock and that missing unlock might be the missing Prestige
new patch will make them have to get 70 Prestige but one dayli and it still will be messy in most regions where random adds will increase the LM by so much tonnage after the first dayli calc give them this 70 PP
