View Full Version : Car bonus calculation question

Yes I know the car bonus isn't displayed / visible in anyway. My question is how is it applied? I can think of a couple of ways:

1) all of the vehicle attack values are added and 20% added
2) each vehicle gets 20% and rounded to the nearest whole number
3) each vehicle gets 20% and any decimal is dropped

These will yield very different results. Lets say we have 100 Yamaha Race Bikes, normally at 13 attack. Under each of the above we'll get different numbers:

1) 13 * 100 * 1.2 = 1560. Pretty clear 20% gain.
2) 13 * 1.2 == 15.6. Rounding up to 16 we'd get 1600 attack. This one happens to work out as a 23% gain.
3) 13 * 1.2 == 15.6. Dropping the decimal we have 15, so 1500 attack. Only a 15% gain in this case.

Its really crummy we don't have any visibility into this. Some of us use teh maths to determine which RP item to buy next using a simple AT gain / RP cost formula. Depending on which one of the above it is it would really dramatically change the order in which items are acquired.

Ideally, could you (Funzio) just display what is actually going on? In leu of that please let us know how this is being calculated. Cheers

They already said it's invisible yet visible. Isn't that enough? :rolleyes:
