    Interface stuff
    – Pressing + and – will raise and lower the volume. Pressing 0 will mute or unmute.
    – Chrome uses its own Flash, which is slower for Highgrounds. If you are experiencing performance problems, try using another browser. This may no longer be the case after the graphics update.
    – If Highgrounds is slow, try Right-click -> Quality -> Low.
    – If you are experiencing certain bugs in-game that prevent you from leaving, refresh the page and see if it clears.
    – If you make a mistake in discarding or buying, refresh the page. This is kind of an exploit.
    – If clicks aren’t registering, try holding down the click for a second.
    – If you can’t see the whole game screen, or the game isn’t centered in its frame/tab, your browser page may be zoomed. Click on another part of the page, away from the Flash part, and press Ctrl+0 (zero). (Highgrounds uses absolute-size graphics, not relative-sized, so it won’t zoom with the rest of the page.)

    Number stuff:
    – Bounty is calculated as
    – first win: truncate((BEST-3000)*(18000-3000)/(650000-3000) + 3000)
    – second win: TRUNC((BEST-650000)*(18000-3000)/(650000-3000)/4 + 4500)
    – Rank is calculated as sqrt(POINTS/260). Give or take a point.
    – Alternatively, the number of points needed to take a certain rank is 260*RANK*RANK – 1.
    – Commander level is also sqrt(POINTS/260). This means you need to get 76 wins to reach level 17, and 163 to reach level 25.

    To reach the next Commander level, this chart should be right.

    Lv 1: 1 win
    Lv 2: 1 win
    Lv 3: 1 win
    Lv 4: 2 wins
    Lv 5: 2 wins
    Lv 6: 3 wins
    Lv 7: 3 wins
    Lv 8: 4 wins
    Lv 9: 5 wins
    Lv 10: 4 wins
    Lv 11: 6 wins
    Lv 12: 6 wins
    Lv 13: 6 wins
    Lv 14: 7 wins
    Lv 15: 8 wins
    Lv 16: 8 wins
    Lv 17: 9 wins
    Lv 18: 9 wins
    Lv 19: 9 wins
    Lv 20: 10 wins
    Lv 21: 11 wins
    Lv 22: 11 wins
    Lv 23: 12 wins
    Lv 24: 12 wins
    Lv 25: 13 wins

    Edit: Now you can do it yourself!

    Why stop at 25? Each new commander has a level cap 10 higher than the previous commander. A 10th commander can go up to Lv 115.

    Also, Cook, Eder, and Brodie are named after people who worked on the game. there might be more

    Since you’re willing to post tables, can you get a list of all the rank up rewards?

    char = [7,14,21,28,36,44,50]; #ranks at which you get a new unit

    print(” “.join([“Rank %d (%d pts): %s!!\n” % (i, i*i*260-1, ‘New character’ if i in char else ‘8 gems’ if i in double else ‘4 gems’) for i in range(1,51)]));

    • This reply was modified 6 years ago by  Raijinili. Reason: why didn't i just insert the chart once i got the double array?

    SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character ‘\xe2’ in file main.py on line 5, but no encoding declared;
    after replacing the apostrophes around \n:
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax

    #15990

    Raijinili

    Syntax error. I didn’t test the code because I didn’t expect anyone to run it (since it was incomplete without filling in the double array). Fixed and also specified apos rather than whatever weird thing it was replaced with..

    double = [4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 32, 40]
    so it’s every 4th rank except the last one (48) and any that gives a character instead (28, 36, 44)

    #15998

    Raijinili

    Odd. That comes out to 204 gems. I thought the total was 200.

    #16090

    impronoucabl

    Yup 204, I finished last week with 394 gems & now I finished this week with 198

    | – Pressing + and – will raise and lower the volume. Pressing 0 will mute or unmute.

    Why are things like this not more obvious in the interface?!

    (thanks!)
