NOOB Protection
« on: March 01, 2012, 12:43:02 am »
I don't know if this has already been asked and answered, but what is the formula for determining when a player is too strong or too weak for attack? It seems to scale as I level up, but I'm just wondering if it might need a look. There are so few players on this server, that some of the guys on the top can't attack anyone. In other similar games, after a certain point spread, you were wide open to anyone. I'm not necessarily in favor of that, but maybe we could open it up a bit, to allow more combat? Any thoughts?

Hello,
The formula for determining when a player is too strong or too weak for attack is:
Weak player is when your points divided by 5 are greater than the other player's points.
Strong player is when your points multiplied by 5 are less than the other player's points.

Example:
If your points are 50.000:
50.000 / 5  = 10.000
50.000 x 5 = 250.000
So the interval in which you can attack players/get attacked from players is from 10.000 to 250.000 points.

If we open it up, strong players will attack very weak players and there will be bad balance.
