Topic: Tyrant Unleashed: General / [SIM] Tyrant Unleashed Optimizer

The boss pulls 10 cards from a pool of 12 to start, that gives you 66 possible decks on the first level.

At level 2 the boss gets 4 upgrade points that it can toss where ever it wants. You might get a single level 4 card, 2 level 2s, 4 level 1s. Since there’s 11 possible places these can go you get 11^4 different ways a single deck can be upgraded (14641), which you then multiply by the number of possible decks to get just south of 1 million different decks.

At level 3 the boss’ upgrade points go up to 8, so you have 11^8 ways the deck can be upgraded. That’s a bit over 200 million, which means 14 billion decks.

You can get all pedantic and start talking about how each deck will have at least 4 duplicate cards and how that drags the numbers down but you’re only going to knock off a zero or 2 that way and we’re already talking about numbers with 13 of them.

Combine all this with the weaknesses of the hill climbing algorithm used and you should treat the sim as a rough guideline, not a definitive answer. The margin of error gets pretty damn big the farther along you get.

And you can’t necessarily just take the average level because the cards mutate their skill sets at certain levels, so high level gnaws have different skills than low level ones. And often times midlevel ones have a little bit of both worlds.

This boss rewards strike, jam and debuffs heavily. You aren’t going to tank his bullshit, but you just might kill it first since there’s not much evade to block massive enfeebles and the like.

There’s probably some stats voodoo to get a number of iterations that’ll give you some confidence level but it’ll go up each time.

Overload isn’t even the real problem for simming the raid. You can’t get any real precision because the number of possible boss decks is exponential with the raid level. Ordered sims on anything past maybe level 4 are a complete joke because your sample size is too low to be sure a change is actually better.

By level 8 of the boss you’re looking at something around 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible boss decks, give or take a zero or 2.

Either I’ve been very unlucky to loose once on a 99.82% win chance level, primarily to a high level early dropped medi bot, or there might still be some mechanics or buffed upgraded units that make it a tad bit harder than the sim currently thinks.

Thanks again for your work!

Unless you ran some really gigantic numbers of iterations you simply can’t be that sure of your sim results with how random the boss is.

Raid support is nice but the sheer number of trials you need to get a decent sample with how random these bosses are is a bit daunting.

Careful, this kind of thing will probably get monkey pawed into all of them being progs with single target buffs.

Is Overload implemented correctly or does the optimizer have some old version of the skill?

Yeah, remember when you actually had to fuse commanders? You didn’t get free energy refills and free cards, you had to spend sp and cards to get those commanders! And we had no daily reward, and especially no epic on the first day. There were no guild wars, no brawls, and not even any events the first months. No $4 or $6 packs in the stores… Noobs just take it all for granted.

Just because this game was even shittier at the start doesn’t mean you need to get all defensive about the husband that keeps beating you.

Because being a Progenitor is honestly kind of a problem for many rainbow decks that rely on big single target skills hitting where you want them. It needs to be really damn amazing to get over that and just doesn’t make the cut.
