Dear Cowboys and Cowgirls,

As promised, after a short test on the beta server, we are going to test the new fort battle formula also here on Event Server.
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⌋

Starting from tomorrow's update (15/06/2020) you will find the new formula in the IFBC3 server. The registration and login in the IFBC3 server will be now open to everyone and you are free to test the new formula as you like and provide all the necessary feedback here.

Please, be aware that this is not a real server, but it will be a test environment, so all the progress on the server may be reset any time the same as the login in the server can be closed at any time. Try to play and test the formula with the respect of the rulebook or we will be forced to close this experimentation.

Looking forward to hear your feedback in the usual thread.

Your The West Team

We would like to thank you for your commitment to testing new fort battle formulas! We really appreciated your effort in testing the new proposal of formula and provided feedback about it. You are amazing!

In the coming days, we will analyze all the feedback received to make our fort battle improvement better and balanced.
We will inform you as soon as possible about the next steps in this testing process. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.
We hope that soon we will be able to share with you our further plans for fort battles improvements.

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

We have just disabled the altered formulas for damage and resistance, so only the changes to the structure bonuses remain active. This allows us to test these in isolation and have a clearer view of the effects of these changes.

We will have some special battles to test these changes in the next few days.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

We want to say THANK YOU for participating in new fort battle formula testing. Together we reached more than 100 battles and 1000 participants.
Without your help we wouldn't be able to implement all the changes. Every post with feedback, every message, and every participation in each fort battle was very important.

Based on your feedback and ideas at the begging of September new changes have been implemented on live servers.
At the end of this announcement you can find what has been implemented.

Currently, tests are over. That means, that the IFBC3 server will be closed soon. Will you miss our tests? Check regularly our The West forums, some more testings can appear.

Thank you again.

Your The West Team

    When shooting, the bonus your targets receive to their defense value will be increased.
