Pictures as in screenshots of the end result? Nope |

Putting it into excel and getting it to plot a linear trendline gives this equation
(0.6162*x)+18.95
Which rounds to be correct, so tis a starting point. |

Yeah I did that but have to test on more levels before assuming this to be correct |

Anyone willing to share some builds ? |

Still sticking to golems and gremlins and a few Gargs till level 10 |

I have a hydra DE build. This is mine at about 620 crystals

reaching lv 50 plz don't die my muel don't die |

@Lord MilesTeg, you earned 27 crystals for that battle. Were you playing level 14? |

Yes, 27 crystals is for level 14 fight |

How to start a friendly challenge?
I can start a fight with most friends but not with certain friends (I can't find them on the list) |

Exploit your partnering, go with someone of a lower level with lots of AP and get more FSP :) |

Plotted a trendline
equation is 19.121e0.0249x
I wonder if it therefore works as 19e^0.025x |

Thanks Wonderla Nowar and Milesteg for the cot lists and formulas |

*Plotted a trendline*

I don't think this is the right approach, seems more like a certain pattern until level X, then another until level Y, then another till level Z. |

*I don't think this is the right approach, seems more like a certain pattern until level X, then another until level Y, then another till level Z.*
That's why he did it second time. There is a range perhaps where it follows the same equation just like you figured. |

for Meshy:
I disagree, I think it is much more likely to be one thing. I will explain why.
Imagine you are an admin, you need to code for the number of crystals. There are two basic approaches to this, either create a manual table for all crystal points and get it to look this up, or else have it work out the crystals using a formula. The former you would have to ensure that it covered all possible levels that could ever be reached, is less elegant and requires more manual coding, as such I would expect they would use just one formula.
They could use multiple formulae and apply these at different ranges of x, however this is then more effort, and it is likely to appear like there are several different linear ranges as this is based on how human intuition and pattern recognition works. However, mathematical functions can work for pretty much any pattern we make.
If I was a developer though coming up with a mathematical formula to cover these ranges would be a pain, and require quite involved thinking. However manually plotting out some key numbers, then fitting the data to it and using a program to do the hard maths bit is much easier. I could then use that equation which I know works and plug it into my code. AS such my code is elegant and straight forward, yet does exactly what I want to.
As such by taking the raw data and finding the pattern by excel, we may in fact be doing exactly what the devs did to come up with the formula in the first place.
Of course this is just speculation, but based on reasonable assumptions I feel.
Not that it matters particularly, but I like to amuse myself. |

*Imagine you are an admin, you need to code for the number of crystals. There are two basic approaches to this, either create a manual table for all crystal points and get it to look this up, or else have it work out the crystals using a formula.*
I would adopt the formula of
If X (level) is <10 but >0 then N (number of crystals if you win) = 3x+1 (or something to that nature.
Then on the upper limits you just keep the bands as big as needs be, the last one could be
if 100<x<7000 then N = 100x+5 or something.
*require quite involved thinking*
Doesn't it require just as much as involved thinking to create a formula as annoying looking (no offence) as the one you came up with using a treadline?
If admins were using the formula (as you suggest), then I think we would have gotten the formula from the data points rather than estimating a trendline then adjusting a little bit to "what seems sensible" (sensibility is a bold assumption for our admins :P)
*AS such my code is elegant and straight forward, yet does exactly what I want to.*
Your code would be elegant, yes. But my code could have the effect of allowing admins to be more generous at higher levels.
But alas, this is simply an Economist discussing coding with a Chemist, down with the experts eh? |
