Does anyone know how's XP for Horde Mode characters calculated?

I tried to search through the forums and google but I can't find a conclusive explanation of what to expect when I play Horde. I've completed 50 waves on beginner twice with a few intermediate runs thrown in (30+ waves before we died), and am just around Level 9. It feels a tad slow. Is it based on damage done, waves completed, number of enemies or anything else?

Thank you.

I think it's based on team score, the higher difficulty you're on the higher the score multiplier and the higher the XP, you can also use the cards that boost team score and these should give more XP too.

Cards on the other hand seem to be 1 card every 5 waves regardless of your score, the higher the difficulty the better chance at rarer cards though.

Always try to play the highest difficulty you can handle smile

I was wondering what the card for increased team score is for. It's like, who cares about the score when you only want to survive? smile

I managed to go Intermediate until wave 30+ with two players and three AI. Hopeful that we can go further with more players.

Thanks Infamous for the reply.
