Skulls! Can someone please explain the math?

Hi!

I just did three battles.  I attacked one player 3 times - 1120 skulls each time. I attacked two other players 1066 and1041. I also won skulls after the battles for an extra 66, 65, and 67 skulls.  When I add these up, I get 5665 skulls.  When I go to rewards, it shows I captured 3962 skulls.  The skull bonus for the battle was 10%.  I tried checking the wiki, but the explanation was unclear. Can someone please explain the calculations to me? What are the formulas for skull calculations?  How does the total of 5665 get transformed to 3962.   Thanks!

Only the top 3 attacks for different opponents with the most skulls are counted in full.

You attack 5 times, 3 times to 1 player and 1 times for each 2 players right?

Based on your image attachment the math is:

  • From your top 3 skulls battle for 3 player is: 1120 + 1066 + 1041 = 3227 skulls
  • From bonus 5 battles (10%): (1120 + 1120 + 1120 + 1066 + 1041) x 10% = 5467 x 10% = 546.7 ~ 547 skulls
  • From CoF: 66 + 65 + 67 = 198 skulls
  • Your total skull: 3227 + 547 + 198 = 3972 skulls

I calculate 3972 too :slight_smile:

Thanks!  I kept looking at the math.  I thought it didn’t make sense.  Thanks for confirming!

what RoyalDing do can seem complex but its really easy to understand. i will try to explain to allow you to understand with my method

Your 3 first attack count full. So whatever the result every skulls count. After each battle the skulls in COF count brute. So whatever the number is directly added in your total

After the rest of battle is only count like % of the skulls.

Now time to explain with exemple

You do your first attack and obtain 1120. You open chest in COF to get 98 skulls. After 1 attack you are at 1218

You do your second attack and obtain 1120. You open chest in COF to get 96 skulls for 1216. After 2 attack you are at 2434

You do your third attack and obtain 1120. You open chest in COF to get 97 skulls for 1217. After 3 attack you are at 3651

You do your final attack and obtain 1120. If your Bonus skulls is 2%. you do 1120 x 2% = 22.4. Remember all number is rounded so 22. You open the chest in COF and get 99 skulls for 121

So your total its gonna be 3651 + 121 = 3772 skulls

Hope this will help you
