Introduction The first thing now is when you start the game people tell you that the Arc is the best GB there is from all of them and a lot of people don't understand why they need the Arc, I was one of them but I was lead to the answer and it's quite simple. The Arc in the eyes of people who don't or haven't touched math or occur to them to do some calculations never though of it being a great tool of making FPs and the FPs are the best currency in the game. Everything else that is medals, supplies, coins, BPs, goods becomes free for an Arc owner and I will explain why. I want you to understand that this is straight facts done with multiple times calculations and used by many players, they just decide to keep the information to them and never talk about it with people they consider "noobs". The helper for Magical free resoursesSo we have everything secured and receive a lot of the things I said above - Medals, Supplies, Coins, BPs, Goods we will need an Chateau Frontenac that is equivalent to level 5 which is again 90% of the quest outcomes(it can be higher but that's FPs that you can save for other things). Which is pretty cheap as it is. So why chat? It multiplies the rewards from Gather Coins, Gather Supplies and most important quest when sniping or contributing to other people GBs. You will never see a high age player with Goods Buildings and having GBs exceeding level 50-60. They all quest and get the goods from Chateau Frontenac and recurring quests which are definitely NOT UnHappyBirthday, that's just a waste of supplies and coins TBH, coins that you can use to purchase FPs. The actual Math The GBs have a total that needs to be filled. The first 10 levels are always fixed and then the total starts to rise by 2.5% always. The reward system on spots I am unsure how it's done according to levels as there is no mathematical algorithm going around there based on previous and next level but on every level the rewards from spots consist of the following: TOP 1 TOP 2 = TOP 1 divided by 2 TOP 3 = TOP 2 divided by 3 TOP 4 = TOP 3 divided by 4 TOP 5 = TOP 4 divided by 5 That's why you will never see GB having a 5FP spot if the top 1 reward is not around 300FPs. The rewards also represent: TOP 1 = 56% of all the rewards TOP 2 = 28% of all the rewards TOP 3 = 9.6% of all the rewards The left over is in TOP 4 and TOP 5. So TOP 1, TOP 2 and TOP 3 represent 93.6% of all the rewards on a GB and that's on every level on every GB. What do the snipers do?You can see all sort of snipers. Mostly you see solo who take Top 1 where levels are profitable at 50% and then Top 2 is taken for 25% which is already 84% of the rewards and whatever left it's taken by other people who snipers say are noobs and overpay for BPs and Medals which are free in this game if you use the math to do so. There is a possibility that top 3 is taken for 12.5% if profitable too. Smart sniper on the other hand use a different method which is actually more profitable for them and can deceive players on what they actually do. That thing is called team sniping. Player A and Player B take top 1 and top 2 by each 33.4% and 33.3% and cannot be over-passed by any other sniper because on the GBs it's left 33.3%. That in total is 66.7% on the GB with two snipers, where regularly it would have been 75%. That difference is 8.3% which can be a lot of you work on very profitable GBs(Arc 50 for example) and they can go away with profits over 500FPs(250 and over each) while normal snipers get away only with 170FPs and 85FPs only. That is a great deal to lose onto. The same can be done with 3 players where Player A, B and C put a total of 75% of the total of the GB, while it would have been 87.5%, that's 12.5% less than what the team sniping would look like. How to protect ourselvesThere are couple of answers: You threaten the snipers to put 1.9 on your GB or you will take their FPs as hostage and not let them go and go on with your other GBs. Check if there are people from the same guild having level 80 Arcs and try to unfriend them or if they are not in the FL but in hood do the wanted GB at that point when they are no longer in your hood. Do not unlock levels if you know your buddies are away and cannot secure the top 1 and top 2 prize. ConclusionIf you have been sniped by this method and the people have very high GBs it's because you paid for them. I will probably post a very useful tool how you can do that too in a PART 2 so the odds are even for everyone and that you can also do that even if you are the so called noob. Math is helpful always for everyone if looked closely onto.
