That’s why I said it’s also related to period since last time being disconnected. My list is based on around 12 hours of disconnect. If you would have been offline for 12 hours, it’s going to be around 2,1M. Maybe handy if others who get enough raids on their bases share how much gold they had original, how long the disconnect period was and how much gold is gone. It would be interesting to get statistics that players can use. You can then determine if it’s worth the risk leaving your gold unprotected or not.
If you know you can easily get more gold when you logon, then it’s worth the risk. There is a major change however. When you know you will login after a few hours without the intention to fight, be aware that this raidless login can be very costly. We already know that the algorithm before 2.0 was different, they remembered the losses during a certain period of time, it didn’t matter if you reconnected and disconnected again.
Now that definitely matters. When you disconnect the algorithm is reset. First 100% raid (under conditions that hero levels are not far apart) will cost you 600k. So when you just login to refill silo or to do daily donation without intention to raid and compensate the gold just lost, be not surprised that you again lost gold a lot when you login again.
This is what flare calls players don’t lose more, in fact they definitely lose more. Players who connect and disconnect often will be punished for their non raids and lose a lot of extra gold in fact.
I used to refill my silo just before I went to sleep. with this information, I stop raiding when my silo is still full, unless it’s war season. Then I am prepared to pay the price (loss of gold) of that extra logon to refill my silo. To keep the loss to a minimum, I calculate how much time is needed to refill the silo, then I log in again and know that the gold lost between those two short period of times is the price that I pay for refilling the silo.
