Hey Guys, I dont normally make posts on the form but this is very concerning for me and my alliance (M5A2) as this was our last war of the season and it would also have decided whether or not we moved to gold 3 or stayed in silver 1.
I could be wrong about this but I think there is a mistake in the scoring

    you lost 490 points in attack bonus and defenders remaining, you gained 30 points in diversity, net differnce -460, which is what the overall score shows

    this
  • While you had 6 more “Defender Kills”, other team had +3 on Attack Bonus.
    Meaning of your 48 defender kills, 9 more of them were from 4+ attempts on a node that what your attackers had against other sides defense.
    Attack Bonus is capped at getting points from first 3 attempts at a node (90, 60, or 30 pts).

    Further gets confused because one side was 1 short on defenders (doesn’t matter though, exploring past empty node gives automatic 90 pts Attack Bonus plus the normal 30 Explore), and neither side was fully 100% explore, and the 5 missing defenders was different from the 4 diff total attack kills.

    But above is basically why the loss, plus the 250 pts for remaining defenders still left up.

    Are you asking about your defender kills being higher, but your attack bonus being lower? Defender kills alone don't earn points. The first three times you die to a specific defender, you lose 80 points each. After that, no further points are lost for each additional death.

    Hope that helps

    Oops, yep, mine earlier had wrong numbers. As above, potential Attack Bonus is either 240/160/80 for killing a node in 1st/2nd/3rd attempt. Any more than that is 0, which is why discrepancy between your defender kills and attack bonus lines. Attack Bonus is the one that counts toward actual points, defensive kills is just for reference.
