The value of these missiles will, in part, depend on the LEV of an opponent's armies as well as the number of armies, amount of DEF and number of TEC points
Erm, i don't get this part. Is this the case right now that wether or not a missiles hits depends on lev and such?
To be honest with you, I just got a bit carried away last night. You know how the fun never stops once the maths starts
I was trying to make everything relative to everything else, so that the scores could be calculated to show the absolute strength of each player. The problem I ran against was that missiles vary in strength depending on what your opponent has. (A few high level armies, missiles are great, a lot of low level armies, not so good.) Instead of recognising that this was logically a bad way of going about things, I took it as a mathematical challenge to solve. Which is why the formulae got so horrible.
I didn't help myself by making a false assumption, round about step two.
Too be honest, I'd rather this whole episode were left behind, I got some numbers out of it which will be useful for the new formula, but I got them the hard way. Now people should go and post on the other thread about what sort of formula we want anyway... http://www.kaomaris.com/phpNuke/modules ... pic&t=1522
