hello can someone tell me what kind of math GGS use for this cuz i passed 100% on recruit speed but they still got alot time for recruiting

so can someone explain wth this 100% do?

in my math its mean i have to get soldier right after click when its -100% recruit time mean its drop to 0 sec

2,232ASIA1So this is mine, I have 323% - so if it takes 3 minutes to recruit 1 soldier at 100%, mine will recruit that troop 223% faster, or just less than 1 minute.

The higher that number is, the faster troops will be recruited.

On the relic (blue) equipment, we get -120% recruit time. It DOES NOT mean you will recruit troops instantly, but it adds that negative 120% to our recruitment speed, so the above photo would go to 443%.

74INT1732US12,015INT3100% Bonus recruit speed should mean it takes 50% as long to recruit the same number of troops.

So, if we start at 100% (well 99%) it takes 11:00 to recruit 1 Imp Bowman.

I don't have a 200% barracks, but 200% SHOULD equal 50% of 11:00 or 5:30. So, 280% speed should reduce it more, right?

Well, it DOES, but 6 seconds is not equal to an 80% more reduction. Shouldn't it be closer to the 300% improvement that would be: 3:40. And a 400% speed boost would bring us to: 2:45

But, as we see, we are only down to 3:15. IF I calculate this correctly, I SHOULD be down to 1:55. I believe there is a different sliding scale of effectiveness going on.

For PROOF that there is something fishy going on, or at least a minimum, we can look at a Spearman.

Base speed is 0:30.

At 280% we should already be over 50% of that time, or less than 0:15

Hmm...…….nope. Exactly 50%. What about at 472%?

Clearly, we have hit a floor. 0:15 is NOT the correct speed boost.

So, once again, either I am missing a piece on how production % is calculated, or GGE math is following its own rules.

You know which one I think it is...……..

109NL12,015INT3Some details, if it helps those who are better at figuring this stuff out:

472% = +264 from PO, +173.4 from Cast, +35 from Barracks

280% = +230 from PO, +25 from Barracks, + 25 from Drill Ground

99% = +79 from PO, +20 from Barracks (Storm Island coin farm - upgraded barracks to 5 just for this test)

It would also be nice if the time to recruit changed to RED to indicate the floor was reached. But, I expect changing the code to do that, would result in Dire Consequences...…..

Sleep well.

732US1The only recruit speed boosts you can rely on are feasts and drill grounds it seems to me.

2,015INT3Listing it as a percentage implies something very specific...……..

Sleep well.
