Battleground bank scenario - explanation needed

Hello to all forum,


For over 20 days I am doing little by little some BGs and I have some strange behavior sometimes... 

I track everything I spend and every little payout I get and so far it has gone like this:

a) Some day I was at 20m spent and only 18m gained, I started to believe that there is some 10% tax involved and continued to do them only with some infantry + cavalry I could produce and only during tournaments to get 100 or 250 points...

b) After the last changes I played a lot that day and the overall numbers went up to 33m spent and 33.5m gained...! I couldn't believe that and I thought that I had some banked amount, which popped out for some reason (maybe due to leveling up BGs)...

Note for b) : I increased the levels a lot that day, went from a maximum of BG lvl 28 to 33.

c) Today and yesterday I continued doing a lot of BG, based on the assumption that there might be 0% tax... Well, the amounts right now are 54m spent and 49m gained which makes me think the same as a) but unfortunately I have no way of explaining why b) happened...

My current thoughts:

The last two days I didn't increase the BG levels at all. My payout 2 days ago was 3m. I think this means I had to spend 3.3m and then hit a BG.

BUT all I did was gather 3.5m+ and hit AGAIN lvl 30 with 3m payout. I guess this means there is somewhere 300k+ banked. This thing happened another 5-6 times overall (some of those I didn't get my payout when expected), which might account for 1.5m "losses", but which is banked. 

Is the only way to get it back to increase the level maybe? Now, my latest payout is 2.7m. If I pay back 3m, but cash from lvl 35 or 36 would it be possible to get 5-6m, since I already have a few "hidden" banked millions in there?

This would explain everything, would also mean a tax of less than 10%, maybe 1-3% and would give me the chance to know where I stand...



... OR there is no amount banked and I am at a "zero" status bank atm? If so, how to explain b) that at SOME point I reached spent amount equal to gained amount?

Thank you for any answers !

My Lord,

BG algorithm is among most needed Stormfall secrets. I'm using sheets and reading everything possible on net. Despite all of that I can't figure out bank dinamics.

Nemanja,


By posting here I am expecting


a) An answer or opinion whether my bank is empty or half-filled based on above clearly stated facts and procedure followed

b) No answer at all and skip to browsing another thread


Despite these very simple options, you posted unrelated things concerning your inability to understand the system, while you could select option b)

NO player knows the system of BG however i can assure you that your bank will NOT become empty on its own

now about your situation 

in (A) that is normal there is a tax indeed


on (B) i can not be certain maybe you missed the track of your bank 


bottom line is congrats and good luck with your future BG 

I'am me and that is what i care about :)

It is generally understood that the bank will repay 90% of the resource value of units sacrificed, so nobody is expected to make a profit - but it is possible to gain a superbonus which will put your bank account into negative values, which needs to be repaid.

Rune bg will give slightly more, but the skull runes should reduce your unit payouts.

Some units like pathfinders, reavers and spies have a higher resource value, so may give better rewards when sacrificed


Top players use complicated spreadsheets and bg calculators to keep track of their bank balance, but I dont see any point to this now that yellowed bg seem to withhold all resources from the bank until they are completed, which probably means paying double tax on rewards

Only a comment: bg level 12 not returned any unit reward, 0. 100 of each resource.
