General Game Discussion / Formula For Figuring Out Rough Win %
« on: November 10, 2014, 07:41:13 PM »
I was bored earlier today and found myself wondering what my win percentage was. I call this a rough win percentage because it doesn't account for boosts and the amount of bot games everyone has done is different and all that. I'm going to be using my stats as of Level 40 the other day because they were round numbers and I hit 1000 wins the same day as Level 40.

First step: Figure out amount of xp needed to be at your level.
This is the only slightly time consuming part. Basically it adds 1000 xp needed for a level every level you go up. So for Level 40 it becomes 39,000 + 38,000 + 37,000 etc. all the way down to 1000. After adding it I realized that to hit level 40 you need 780,000 xp. So that's our first number.
780,000

Step 2: Figuring out how much xp you have just from wins. This part was kind of hard because in some games you don't get the full 500 for a win because of a short game or concede or whatever. So I estimated it out to 425. Might be a little low, but I played it safe. All you do is multiply your amount of wins by 425 and you get your second number. In my case it was 425 x 1000 which came out to 425,000.
425,000

Step 3: Figuring out your percentage!!!!! This is the easiest part. All you have to do is divide the small the number by the big number. So in my case it is 425,000 / 780,000. You'll get a ridiculously long number. But just basic round up or down. My winning percentage came out to 54% roughly.

There's probably another 10k-20k floating around there between bots and campaigns and boosts depending on how long you have played and bots played and all that. But I think it gives you a good ballpark number for your winning percentage. Hope you guys found this useful.

Deck Building / Die Another Day (2 Lives)

With the advent of stall decks (Although they seem to rapidly be fading to the back burner) I created this deck with the intention of using it in Nova's tournament. It didn't fair well, but that was more due to me misreading the meta and not due to the deck being bad.

I have had a lot of fun with this deck and it has multiple roads of victory.....although most roads lead to a rush or quick attack of some sort. Very strong mid game presence, and shakes off Mass Death like it was nothing. Rush is the main weakness of this deck, and you need to be able to time your attacks according to what your opponent is playing. It's not the easiest deck in the world to play, but when played correctly it can be devastating and especially frustrating for whoever you are playing.

So have fun with it, play with it, and make it your own.
