Hello all,

So just going through the goodies in the store, and I had a quick look at the boosters. In other F2P games I tend to avoid them, however something caught my eye

"Epic All Booster: Increases all Exp and Gold income by 100% and all teammates also earn an extra 25%"
Now this alone is a very nice touch, as it helps team-mates and friends who queue up with you.

However let's say I am teaming up with my buddies, the four of us buy and use an Epic All Booster.

Do they stack? As in we all get an increase to Exp and Gold by 200% ?

100% from my booster + (25% x4) from my friends' boosters :naughty:

If I am correct they will stack. This to the fact that it looks this way if I am correct: player got booster multiply gold gain, fellow party member got booster multiply by xxx and so on.

Got to admit, if they did stack, it would definitely make me more inclined into purchasing epic boosts.

Especially if you can organise with your friends, and have major play session weekends etc.

I don't think it'll stack like that though. A more logical way would be 100x1.25= 125x1.25=156 (rounded down is assumed from 123.25) x 1.25 =195 x 1.25=244 (again rounded, but this time up from 243.75.) As 244+exp gold as the total.

So you're assuming it'll be stacking multiplicatively rather than additively? (if I am recalling my maths correctly)

That would be insane for whatever the highest number of players per side will be, if everyone gets an epic boost :scratch:
i.e. 8v8 games => +596% bonus exp and gold

8 vs 8 is not in the planning yet.
This to the fact that the 4 vs 4 system is most balanced.


@Cmstache

That is indeed possible But didnt you forget the increased from the booster it self.
(the 2x (100% increase = 200% gain)

Own boost before friendly boost.

100 gold + 100% from own bonus
100 x 2(100% increase) = 200
200x 1.25 = 250
300 x 1.25 = 312,5
375 x 1.25 = 390,625

Or
Boost only over base gold (More likely)

100 x 2 = 200
100/100 * 25 = 25 x 3 = 75
200 + 75 = 275

Or
Does not stack
Boost over base gold
And you only get
100 x 2 = 200
+ 25 = 225

Or
Does not stack
Own boost before friendly
100 x 2 = 200
200 x 1.25 = 250

Current maps support up to 5 players per side.

Don't mind my hyperbole, it was just an exaggerated example to show how insane the stacking could get, if they did stack in certain ways.

Yes but untill now as far as I know there are no plans yet to make it 5 vs 5.
The dev team told us that 4 vs 4 is most balanced at this stage.

Would be lovely to get a 8 vs 8 match in the future. (Needs bigger maps, and bigger maps are not about to come yet)

Ok this is a stupid question - I bought this Epic Boost thingy tonight - because I thought I'd at least give something back for people having to play with such a bad player! Well how do you get it to work?...it's showing in my inventory but hasn't applied itself to any match I've had tonight! Any ideas? I tried to load it through the armoury but there's no option to do so - I've clicked on it and nothing - sad times - sad sad times :'(
