Auf der Beta ist heute die neue FK-Formel aufgespielt worden. Man darf sich zu Ostern dann wohl auf entsprechend neue FK-Sets "freuen".
A few months ago, we have shared our desire to change the formula for the Fort Battles. This will be the first of several improvements (as also listed in the post linked to above): Improving the balance between attackers and defenders. Today, we have intalled an update containing a change to the fort battle formula. This means the new formulas will be in effect already for today's fort battles.
Why are we doing this? Because attackers currently enjoy a significant advantage: by placing attribute points in strength, they gain points in both health and their strongest aiming/dodging/resistance skill. Clearly this is unfair for the defenders, who must choose between the two.
The following changes will be made:
- The attackers will use hiding instead of stamina.
- The defenders will use setting traps instead of hiding.
- Importance of leadership and dodging/aiming within the attack and defend value calculations was increased
- Worker bonus changed to a 25% bonus to the attack/defend value calculations
The new formula will be:
(For the old formula, see the wiki.)
Attack value: Leadership^0.55 + Aiming^0.5 + Hiding^0.6 + Multiplayer Attack + Sector Attack + Terrain Attack + Tower Class Bonus - Distance Penalty + 25
Defend value: Leadership^0.55 + Dodging^0.5 + Hiding^0.6 + Multiplayer Defence + Sector Defence + Terrain Defence + Tower Class Bonus + 10
Attack value: Leadership^0.55 + Aiming^0.5 + SettingTraps^0.6 + Multiplayer Attack + Sector Attack + Terrain Attack + Tower Class Bonus - Distance Penalty + 25
Defend value: Leadership^0.55 + Dodging^0.5 + SettingTraps^0.6 + Multiplayer Defence + Sector Defence + Terrain Defence + Tower Class Bonus + 10
Important: Before any of these changes will be added on all the language servers, they will be extensively tested on Beta first. Please let us know about your feedback regarding these new formulas, especially your experience with them in actual Fort Battles. You can share your feedback in the discussion thread.
