I cannot believe I didnt do this sooner, but in updating the Campaign spreadsheet, I was going to add the Tier 4 and 5 numbers, until I realized I did not have the Attack and Life modifiers confirmed yet. And with that I mean the multiplication compared to Tier 1. For Tier 1, 2 and 3 it was easy to just follow the stars in the Barracks (1, 2 and 4 attack respectively), but for Tiers 4 and 5 it is a bit different. I’ve now figured them out.
In short, the modifiers are as follows:
- Tier 1: 1
- Tier 2: 2
- Tier 3: 4
- Tier 4: 6
- Tier 5: 9
In previous attempts to get the numbers by attacking the same campaign map with different tier troops, numbers were a bit all over the place. Then I learned that the strong-against bonus is also dependent on the tiers of the attackers and defenders.
Thats why you need to rule out any influence from this bonus, as well as as many other unknowns as possible. I therefore attacked map 4-4 in Moria, which has 11k tier 3 ranged goblins. Attacking with ranged as well removed any bonus on either side.
Tests proceeded by attacking the map with 100 units per tier multiple times, tallying the kills made before defeat. Results are below. When normalized against the tier 1 results, the modifiers (approximately) appear as given above (1,2,4,6,9):
These numbers will be used as defaults in the campaign spreadsheet. Cheers!
