[FT] Spoiler Zone!

Hello,

This topic is made to receive any of the spoilers concerning new features you find or feel like sharing.

Players that are in the test may decide to share what they are experiencing or not.

Of course please remember to use the spoiler banner when sharing new information with everyone.

To make the Spoiler Banner:

[spoiler*] the text you want to hide [/*spoiler]
Make sure you are removing the asterisks (*) before posting.


You can post screen shots as long as you also use the spoiler banner to cover them.

On this topic, you may talk about what isn’t on the game yet.

Warning: We do not guarantee that any of the info that is posted in here is true or accurate. Nor that the features will be launched on the game.

Please remain polite with each other; no one has the prerogative of spoiling or a patent on the rumours and spoilers that are on the game.

Thank you for your collaboration and understanding.

Regards
Ow

Assuming the french trotters catch up to the Pasos in terms of GP, which isn't too much of a feat considering they will get a great GP gain, the French Trotter skillset is much better, since trot races take in account: 45% trot skills, 30% dressage, 20% trot. According to calculations, even with the slightly lower trot - this is enough for the french trotters to beat the pasos fairly easily.

Without spending passes, do you think it will be easy to get the first divine? They both need 50 cupcakes to get but will it be relatively easy to get him just normally playing?

I've always thought it's 40-40-20.. On another server me and a teammate have tried to 'decipher' this for the grand prix, that's what we came up with after testing some stuff.

That's because there is another 5% that goes towards age. So comps are determined this way.

* 5 % : age
* 45 % : Main skill needed for comp (skills + bonuses)
* 30 % : Second skill needed for comp (skills + bonuses)
* 20 % : Third skill needed for comp (skills + bonuses)

pastry divines. What exactly does 'finding sugar' mean?

Players are to be reminded to have anything that mentions new features/divines/promos ect in a spoiler banner.

Not all players wish to know about upcoming things so these must be hidden under a spoiler.

If players cannot follow this sanctions will apply.

How does age affect comps?

@PuffyPrincess

Yes, that's correct, my apologies. Must have swapped them around when I was writing from my notebook.

@Rynx

Basically, if two horses have the exact same skills/bonuses, the one that is older will win.

Special offers:

We're seeing two different special offers for the Cakes contest. Keep in mind that these offers aren't guaranteed to be the same on the live version.

First offer is a Baker Pack that costs 1 pass. You get: 6 ingredients (from the first 6 on the board), 1 Cupcake and 12 boosters

And we also see a Titan's Challenge offer, which gives Cupcakes on all levels. I've only seen 2 cupcakes per level, even when you get kicked off.


Strategy?

In terms of which option is better: It takes 1 egg and 1 sugar to make a cupcake (then add in the wait time for it to bake, and each time you bake the same item, the time increases). For all the Packs I've bought, I've gotten enough egg and sugar to make a Cupcake, so you can probably, technically get 2 cupcakes per packs (1 pass).

Someone should be able to figure out which option (buying Packs vs. TCs) are better mathematically, but for me it's a great option to open TCs if you have them in stock. You won't have to spend passes or diamonds, and if you make it to at least level 3 and stop there, that's 6 cupcakes for 2 passes. You have the potential to get more cupcakes with your passes that way, but it's also a risk that you'd walk away with only 2.

@Bit of Silver

Because nothing tthat diabolo121 said needed to be in a spoiler. They are giving a reminder that things that are not on Howrse yet need to be in a spoiler.

It it's already on the game, or has nothing to pertain to an upcoming event, it doesn't need a spoiler.

ingredients for the prize items will change when the event goes live, so posting the recipes we see now won't necessarily be the ones needed on the live version. We've been told the recipes will be unlocked for everyone a few days after the contest starts, so if someone isn't able to post them all within the first day or so, we'll all see them without having to uncover them ourselves.

Click to display
I thought they might but checking out the stats, the pasos top skill is trot which is considerably higher than the trotter, in which the trotter makes up for it with their dressage, however dressage is the last skill that only counts for 25% of the prix score. Maybe they could but they might have to be higher than paso at all times.

(This screenshot is huge but can’t figure out or be bothered to make it smaller on mobile, lol)

Never mind, comparing them with the formula (I did switch the numbers around for the top skills so it’s all correct) I used to test KWPN v SF and the pasos are the clear winner, they would have to be higher to compete with them
