The Arc bonus

and why is Himeji capped at 50%x10 and Galaxy at 72%x15 (or 71%)

or Star Gazer at 150 goods (or will it end at 151 ?)

To be fair, somebody from coding can answer the limits of the GB's. not that hard to do it. be official.

the guys from coding can answer IF it ends at 100% (what is already known)

but definitely not why: because they only coded what somebody else told them


but as newer GB shows (Himeji, Gazer, ..)
developers want them to be capped
and those are capped much earlier than level 180

550-600k forge to discover for 190th lvl and 180th same % bonus is arc? :D


or Himeji 50%x10 for the next 50-80 lvl? :D

so, at 190 the arc says 100% instead of 101% but I would know if that is because the game is made to show a limit of 100% or if the cap is 100%. In the first case, at level 200 the arc then should show 100% but give 102%. which is the truth?
 
Fp boost isn't the only way to check if the boost is increasing or not.

If you were to look at medals received from a high level building you donate to with a level 180 vs 181 Arc, you would see that the medals don't increase, and since they are much more sensitive to a very minor percentage increase that wouldn't show up in the advertised stats or in fp reward you can then be certain that the Arc stops it's boost increase at level 180. No need to go to level 190 or 200 or 50,000 to find this out.

That should be changed :( if a player have the patient and the time, why not let him/her keep leveling up his/her to higher levels? :(

You are free to continue to level it if you wish for increased Guild Goods. Otherwise you are free to stop and work on something else.

I see no problem, and it is consistent with other buildings that max out percentage rewards but continue to increase the secondary reward after a certain point.

but what if the level would increases every 10 level by 0.1%?

other GB also have 0 percentage increase for one or more levels and then at a very higher level it increases

let's take Temple of Relics
at level 112 it has 34.25% for relics
somewhere later it goes up to 34.50%
and at level 138 it increases another time. to 34.75%

but does it increase to 35% somewhere at level 160 or 170 ?
doesn't help to get that information with making just one level
(yes I know jade is also increasing. but that is not the point. it is another value and not that value)


or Blue Galaxy. 70%. levels with no increase. then 71%. but does it get to 72% or even 73% ?

so a 0% increase in one level is no prove that the won't be an increase somewhere later

currently the description says
the bonus is ..... at the next level it will be ...

wouldn't it be nice if they change it when max value is reached (for all GB not only Arc)
the bonus is ... there won't be any more increases in higher levels.

I agree
0.1% every 10 levels

but with adjusted tooltip for next level info
the bonus is 100%. at level 190 it will be 100.1%

(that info for next increase could be changed for many GB where the next increase is not in the next level but much later)
 
but what if the level would increases every 10 level by 0.1%?
That would be a 0.01% increase every level. The Arc percentage would still go up every level, even if it doesn't show on the screen until the 10th level because of the way Inno displays information. If a reward spot on a great building's level that you donate to gives over 50k medals, a 0.01% increase would be very noticeable and verifiable (an extra 500 medals vs no increase at 50k medals). In no case would the Arc suddenly give zero extra boost per level, and suddenly a whole bunch on the 10th. That just isn't the way the game is programmed.

That would be a 0.01% increase every level. The Arc percentage would still go up every level,
that is not guaranteed
other GB also makes jumps after many levels and not every level

so if the value would jump at level 190 but not before a player must reach level 190 to get that information

you are speculating: what if
and that is based only on your opinion but not on facts


In no case would the Arc suddenly give zero extra boost per level, and suddenly a whole bunch on the 10th.
we know it now because somebody made those 10 levels

but other GB do :rolleyes:
so would have you bet your city on it before that ?

(and those other could also make slower increases instead jumps. no need for the Temple to make only exact changes of 0.25%. there could be many smaller increases every level)
