can leak gold be more specific

Postby oxoDus » Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:16 am

Hi,

Situation: leaked 60-70% gold worth creeps at lvl 3. It would then give 2g to 3g from king kills as shown in replay examples (see attached). Is it possible to specify the percentage more exact? like to 60% when it gives 2g and 70% when it gives 3g or is it not accomplishable?

Seems a strange request. Guessing you just want to be able to calculate how much leak money you'll earn? Another case where extra data would be helpful, though not sure how it would work, is when the king is getting kills, earning you all king gold.

It just seemed weird at first that same leak information would give different outcomes: 2g and 3g, making it impossible to calculate the exact amount just from the given info. But I have adapted to this and personally not gonna burden the staff with any changes. It is just worth mentioning I guess.
There are many factors which make this game more random than strategic and this one is no exception. Started treating this game as a card game and now I can deal with any randomness :)

That's not what I have queried Mudman. If it would show 60% and 70% separately then you would be able to do the maths on the gold which you would get from the king. But when it says 60-70% then you have to bet on which one you will get and then do the maths.

Could remove the % and display the correct gold you will receive
or change it to real instead of integer so it wont be rounded down.
Second one would result in overall more gold tho.

Last possibility would be to display the exact % value e.g 74% instead of 70-80%.

Well it really depends on the goal. Percentages is more challenging and needs a bit more effort to calculate than plain gold multiplication. I would personally stick to percentages. Your last possibility would be good in my opinion. It removes the guessing factor and fundamentals stay the same.

Who plays -hg anyway?

Go for the plain bounty information (gold count) imo.
