We were doing some calculations today as we were matched to an opponent with 21 players while we had 20 participants in war. As we see it, we were in a double disadvantage as we:
- Had six flags less, and
- Could gain less points per flag on average.
Basically, for both teams it takes 1,520 to flip the board (I believe that’s the standard, right ?).
However, they had 21 opponents, giving their players an average value of 1,520/21=72.33.
The average worth for our players was1,520/20= 76.0 points.
Now, when we use all our flags, we could have a maximum of 6x20x72.33=8,680 points.
When they use all their flags, they could obtain a maximum of 6x21x76=9,576.
That’s a whole (9,586-8,680=) 894 points difference in our disadvantage!
In order to correct this, I believe that you should let go of the fixed number of points required to flip the board and instead correct the average worth per player by (in our case) 21/20.
The value of their players would then have been 76/20x21=79.8 and would make it possible for us to obtain a total amount of 79.8x120=9,576, equal to the total amount the opponents could have gotten.
Curious as to your response, but in our opinion it is a bug/incorrect programming.
Btw, we won anyway
