  1. This is a joint test, trial and research by TZ and Scrim regarding ally plunder bonus. We attempt to provide insights on how it works as well as the Incorporation of new rules in the "News" section by KAW admin.

    I will begin by first listing the results of the test, and then demystify it in various sections.

    Note: Values on victory screen is plunder, ally plunder bonus, total

    Test 1. The ally plunder bonus.

    TZ solo test.
    Test on ~ 50% victory opponent. (raven)
    Before purchase of allies,
     ally plunder bonus yield ~ 1mil
    did some ally purchase ~ 90 mil
     ally plunder bonus yield ~ 1.5 mil

    This test concludes that ally plunder bonus ~ 0.4 to 0.5% of ally values.

    TZ test 2

    Target 1 Raven
     ally plunder bonus yield ~1.6 mil
    Target 2 Kilroy
     ally plunder bonus yield ~1.2 mil

    The results analysis
    Raven is stronger than kilroy
    Ally plunder bonus on kilroy is 3/4 that of raven
    Ally plunder bonus DOESscale according to opponent size.

    (Note: XYZ attacks on tiny opponent yield a few k and on average opponent yield ~ 2.3 mil)

    Scrim / TZ test

    Scrim target on (raven, procilivity, Kilroy) all yield the same amount ~ 2.5 mil in ally plunder bonus.
    TZ target however shows different ally plunder bonus as documented in TZ solo test 1.

     at the point of test, Scrim ranks 3 below TZ. However, this shall not affect the results of the 3 different strength target in anyway.
     Scrim is much richer than TZ. Scrim has few hundred mil more value of allies as compared to TZ.  Important point
     Scrim complains despite making huge ally values purchases, the ally plunder bonus did not go up significantly as expected.  Important point

    We can conclude there is a limitation (cap) for the ally plunder bonus.
    Scrim has reached the highest cap cap possible, hence is able to earn the maximum amount from a small opponent (Kilroy) and also this amount is the same as a larger opponent (raven).
    On raven, scrim bonus is 2.6 mil vs TZ 1.6 mil. Hence we can see the cap at 2.6 mil max.
     we are not done yet.
    No  means no conclusion yet. Let's
    move on 

    Scrim raze all military building save 1 forge.
     ally plunder bonus now drops to 300k

    Ally plunder bonus maximum is capped to Army strength.
    This is in line with the news as announced by KAW.
    Ally plunder bonus rises as values of the allies rises (more allies). The value however does not rise indefinitely and is capped by army strength.

    The exact mechanism of the cap is not known yet. It may be a point cap or it may be a (exponential bonus strength ratio) curve cap.

    To summarize this long article
    Ally plunder bonus increase with more allies.
    Ally plunder bonus scales according to opponent strength
    Maximum ally plunder bonus is capped to army strength
    Having more allies above the maximum cap only serves to provide the same ally plunder bonus as the cap.
     cap is at 1mil
     my bonus for A is 1 mil and for B is 750k
     I buy even more allies.
     My bonus for A is still 1 mil but for B is now 940k.
     I can buy more allies but my total max bonus will be 1 mil for both A and B.

    I hope this provides an insight to the workings of the ALLY PLUNDER BONUS (not confuse with plunder).
     this are the current findings of ally plunder bonus.
    More test and experimentation will help provide data to make this article more accurate.

    This is suppose to be a small section in TZ Guide Game Mechanics.

    In with special contribution by many people and still an early findings, it shall be a stand alone for us all to build upon.

    Special thanks to  Scrim co-tester (spend 400 mil for the test)  TZ co-tester, xyz for meaningful reminders,  Kilroy test subject and  raven test subject.

    Feel free to add on meaningful insights and comments. 

    Any queries feel free to post me on my walls .
  2. Nice job!
  3. Holy crap... Soooo maannnnyy colloours *drools*
  4. Well done bro!
  5. Brilliant 

    i can verify the army cap, as after I destroyed a lv3 beastiery my ally plunder bonus dropped by 5-10k
  6. Good job scrim!
  7. Latest test show: after investing on a 100mil ally, my ally plunder bonus on  kilroy only rise by 100k

    That is a 0.1% yield. The cap could possibly be a exponential ratio curve or I have reached my cap.

    I realize it's an old thread.
  14. Watch out, we got a necrophiliac over here.
  15. Best of.
  16. It isn't legal to test joints ! Cannabis laws are pretty strict, perhaps you should be enrolling in a 30 program at the Betty Ford Clinic ! There is hope, don't use dope !!!!
  17. Lmao. Really old guide. Thankfully Scrim is active now. Lol
  18. Old guide but concept is there, perfect for noobs... BUMP
