Dear Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Like a lot of you might already know, rebalance the fort battle is one of the goals of the next months for our entire The West communities.

The first step of this ambitious change is to find a "square" in the fort battle formula, in order to achieve more balanced fights between attackers and defenders.

We are now trying to improve the balancing in damage/resistance by changing the formula in this way:

Soon this change will be available on the Beta server and later, hopefully, also here to test it with a bigger player base.

Please, let us know your feedback here below about the new formulas, it will help us understand if we are aiming in the right direction.

We are now trying to improve the balancing in damage/resistance by changing the formula in this way:

**DAMAGE FORMULA - Update 2.127**`1 + max(0, (min(skill1, leadership, aiming)^0.8 + median(skill1, leadership, aiming)^0.7 + max(skill1, leadership, aiming)^0.6 − |maxHealth ÷ 10 − mean(skill1, leadership, aiming)|^0.6) ÷ 400)`

**NEW RESISTANCE FORMULA - Update 2.128**`1 + max(0, (min(skill1, leadership, dodging)^0.8 + median(skill1, leadership, dodging)^0.7 + max(skill1, leadership, dodging)^0.6 − |maxHealth ÷ 10 − mean(skill1, leadership, dodging)|^0.6) ÷ 3`

**And a distance penalty - Update 2.128**`distance × 1.6`

`100 × (skill1 + leadership + dodging) ÷ maxHealth⌋`

Soon this change will be available on the Beta server and later, hopefully, also here to test it with a bigger player base.

Please, let us know your feedback here below about the new formulas, it will help us understand if we are aiming in the right direction.

*Your The West Team*
