Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Bug Reports - Official

I’m with Pwnzor_
I had even gotten legendary cards, so I’m mildly upset to say the least, if these are lost as well as no additional prize

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Biggest hits and scores of LoH!

Someone had an underdog victory of a 60 level difference or something, right? Well, if EFL matches count as well, then I’ll see your 60 level difference underdog victory with a 272 – 83 = 189 level difference (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/DarkSkaners/win1.jpg), and then raise you a repeat victory (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y174/DarkSkaners/win2.jpg) ;P

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Legacy of Heroes] Draft Reports - Official

May be a silly question, but I decided to join a draft maybe half a minute or a minute after the Monday Night Heroes countdown had reach 0 and instead displayed the “Draft now and get free stuff!” message, however, I got no free stuff.
Instead, it would appear that I was redirected to a draft created before the MNH officially started (ID: 20296), where I got 3rd place. Why would something like that happen – me joining after the event starts, but being redirected to a prior draft and thus not getting any free stuff..?

Having waited all week for this event, and it being my first draft experience, I can’t really say that it was what I expected… Hope this gets fixed in the future.

erm, actually crafty said something and soular said his example proves what crafty says is wrong, so “you made a claim, so it’s up to you to prove that it’s true” means soular has to prove that his example does indeed prove crafty is wrong. also, the whole 15+ thing has been discussed already in these forums http://www.kongregate.com/forums/65-tyrant/topics/155993-faction-war-points?page=1 and most ppl replying agreed it worked so crafty’s theory has kinda already been proven. just sayin’.

I was originally not gonna get involved with this, since I don’t really care about the points equation, and I only wanted to correct craftymofo’s misconception about where the burden of proof lies.

In response to your comment, a bit of math:
15 (base points)
a = damage dealt to commander in the final turn
y = Amount of points you get from the battle; 16 ≤ y ≤ 25

Originally posted by craftymofo:

The formula is quite simple actually

15 + the amount of damage you dealt to the commander on the final turn, capping at 25

As seen above, craftymofo’s suggestion is that the formula, in its entirety, is:
y = 15 +a

If you’ve ever had a case where y ≠ 15 + a, which has been the case for many people, you’d know that craftymofo’s suggestion is not entirely correct. Like Soularmadyl correctly said:

Originally posted by Soularmadyl:

Quite easy to disprove your formula, just rally a unit up to 10 attack on an empty commander AND take over 15 turns (otherwise u’d only be supporting my theory) just to be sure and LOOK, Y I GET ONLY 20 POINT??

—> so even if that is part of the formula it’s incomplete

Also even if last hit is a 1 or 2, it’s very common to get ~ 20 points on a faction war win, so it can’t be just 15+damage

Because of additional variables (e.g. speed), the formula is closer to being:
y = 15 + a + b + c +[…]

While you will often get y = 15 + a, it’s not because that’s the entirety of the formula, but just because the other variables just equalled 0.

So while Soularmadyl has yet to prove the entirety of his/her hypothesis, craftymofo failed to prove his/her at all, and was even proven incorrect, as there’s more to the formula than what s/he was suggesting. You’ve even admitted to this yourself:

Originally posted by derkjerk:

i agree, extras are involved. for example, destroying all cards in opponents deck gives more points added onto that 15+.

Thus far, Tuxedo has been the one giving the best simplified explanation as to why the additional variables differ, and why there’s no exact working formula. Even though craftymofo’s suggestion is a good rule of thumb, it’s not entirely correct.

Why don’t you disprove me? The burden of proof is on you

And I forgot to mention, points cap at 20 if you use auto

Actually, the burden of proof is on you; you made a claim, so it’s up to you to prove that it’s true, it’s not up to others to prove that it’s wrong, or it would just be Russell’s Teapot all over again. Just sayin’.
