I decided to do some rough calcs so I know how many FREE gems I earn every month.
Can anyone kindly check if they have the time? I can’t pretend that I’ll get all of it right! @Garanwyn
With formula and without formula spreadsheets are below.
Conservative key assumptions
- 1-2 gems earnt on average per Gem-earning event in a worst case scenario, say 1.5 per event.
- 3-4 gems earnt on average per Gem-earning event in a normal case scenario, say 3.5 per event.
- Best case scenarios of 10, 20, 50 gems rarely occur so will exclude from analysis except for elemental chest
- The player is neither hardcore (ie a player who will stay up in the nether hours) and neither easy-going and will regularly finish Gem-earning events (Average player).
- The alliance is made up of players who are like the Average player.
- Ignore Atlantis Rising and Atlantis Coins.
Gem-earning events include:
- Mystic vision (assume twice a day, third requires the Average player to stay up at night)
- Monster chest (assume 1-2 times a day, say 1.5 a day)
- Heroes chest (say 1 time a day)
- Titan-killing, each titan killed (say 3-4 titans killed a week, say 3.5 a week or 0.5 a day)
- Titan chest, filled after 1.5 weeks.
- Collect Gems II and Collect Gems I quests (say 2 times each per month, 10 gems for Collect Gems I and 18 gems for Collect Gems II = 20 + 36 per month = 56)
- Raids tournament (weekly)
- Alliance War result (assume the gems earnt is the same for both Win or Lose – to be conservative.)
- Elemental chest (conservatively, assume appear once a month and assume earn 10 gems in worst case, and earn 20 in average case)
- Alliance war chest (assume 50% win rate. Therefore will take 9 wars to fill 25 = 4 * 5 + 4 * 1 + 1*X ie. 4.5 weeks. Assume earn 10 gems)
Therefore, in a worst case scenario the average player earns 306.88 free gems per month.
In an average case scenario, the average player earns 626.22 gems per month.
(Gargh it means that I probably won’t have enough gems for the September HOTM.)
Does that sound right? Seems a lot.
