Given that I have no empty counties in my neighborhood to test it on, I don't have the option to test it, but given my current experience with raiding/conquering Innumerable 10 Black Widows/Lizards, your best bet will be to calculate what you can handle.
This means you will have to spy the county to see what you're up against and then check whether your army would be capable of taking it down. This isn't as hard as it might sound and it's very easy to get so overpowered, that these numbers might not matter anymore.
What you will need:
So, let’s continue our example of the
Black Widows and Bowmen.
Our goal is to find out: how many of
our units can kill how many
In other words, if I am sending X
amount of bowmen, how many black
widows can I kill without having to
worry about the bowmen getting hurt?
To make a useable simple calculator,
you need to find out two things. The
two things you need to find out then:
- How much attack each individual unit does (Attack per Unit);
- The HP of the monster.
This will get you how many of your
units can kill how many monsters.
Okay. So open up your first report.
Lets say we have 500 bowmen. You will
notice that underneath the writing
"Round X", it will say something like
Bowmen, move: 15, attack: 5000.
Attack per Unit
So first we find out how much attack
each individual unit does. To break it
down real simple: we have 500 units,
they did 5000 attack.
So total attack is: 5000 attack You
have: 500 units Each unit does:
5000/500 = 10 attack each unit.
Now that we know how much attack each
unit has, lets find out how many units
it will take to kill a single monster.
Now, from the forum, we know that one
black widow has 60 HP. So if each
bowman does 10 attack, then it will
10 attack per bowman
60 HP per black widow
= 0.1667 (this means that each bowman kills 0.1667 black widows)
Now you have a simple formula which
calculates how many black widows your
bowmen can kill! So if you have 12345
bowmen, you can kill:
12345 units * 0.1667 (this is the 1vs1
value)= 2057.9 black widows!
BUT this is only 2057.9 per round!
We have to calculate how many rounds
you have before your main units (in
this case bowmen) get hit!
Factor in rounds
I presume you understand the theory of
positional warfare (aka speed bumps,
Your battle report will be handy here.
You can see how many rounds you have
before the monsters start attacking
your main unit. It’s usually around
3-6 depending on the speed of the
monster, the range of your unit, and
which mix of units you send to act as
But a strange thing starts happening
when the monsters get too close to
your units! Your units start getting
their attack reduced by half! (this
happens when the monster is 30m or
less to your ranged units).
So basically multiply however many
rounds of attack you’re getting in
before your main unit gets hit: lets
say for us (to keep things simple), in
our pretend report, we deduce that we
have 4 rounds BEFORE your bowmen gets
hit (that is, your bowmen get hit on
the 5th round).
That means your army of 12345 bowmen
can kill : 2057.9 * 4 = 8231 black
widows in a fight (raid or conquer).
The beauty of using the simple method
above, is that you don’t have to do
too many calculations and take into
account all the factors in the game
which influences these things (these
are listed below). All you need is
just a few numbers. This is a nice,
clean way to do things. but please note that if you upgrade something like your attack, you will need to re-calculate the "1vs1" attack.
This is because the calculation works
on the basis that everything is still
the same. Which means that the factors
(see list below) have not changed.
All the factors that are already incorporated into the calculate
- Attack value of your unit (Please note that the value that is shown when
you viewing them in command centre
incorporates any research upgrades);
- Attack type (eg piercing) vs armor type [bonuses or penalties];
- Your attack experience + any attack potions (this can be found in your
Lord profile page);
- The armour value of the monster;
- If your unit gets a +/- 75% for that type of monster;
