I don't get prestige.

I don't get why prestige is even a concern for some people, literally all it effects is that little number on your profile, I couldn't care less about it, and I have no idea why anyone would.
Could someone please tell me why it matters

    And it doesn't affect that number on your profile, that's your Base hero rating. Prestige is the average PI of your top 5 champs. You could have a Base hero rating of 6000 and still have a much higher prestige than someone with 60,000 Base hero rating.

    No one does its beyond out of date to include top 5 champs that you cant even see on your profile.

    Say 100 teams complete map 5x5 100%, well how do you rank those teams for rank rewards? The answer is prestige. The team with the higher prestige will score higher because the difficulty goes up ever so slightly.

    Prestige usually helps determine how your alliance ranks in AQ. The higher the prestige of your alliance, the more difficult AQ will be, but will also reward more points.

    Rarely, prestige has other benefits. Access to certain Dungeon Crystals used to be determined by prestige, although that has since changed. Some monthly event rewards may be determined by prestige as well, although that is pretty rare as well.

    That's an odd way to look at it. Prestige directly factors into scoring, so it isn't really a tie breaker. Otherwise, you could say the bosses in AQ are tie breakers.

    Hero rating - the number on your profile that is all your champs added up. It means Jack ####. Masteries and boosts do not affect this number.

    PI - the rating of a champ which is affected by masteries and boosts. It only matters in arena.

    Prestige - the average PI of your top 5 champs without any modifiers. It affects AQ score and is the most important stat.

    Thing is, some alliances who are AQ oriented, are looking for members with high prestige, for the reasons said earlier in this tread...

    Therfore , having good pulls from cristals, that allows you to rank up good champs, that has great prestige, gives you an advantage over players who have unlucky pulls from cristals...

    Prestige is really simple:

    Take your top five champs add them all together divide by 100 then subtract the difference of your top five and bottom five. Once you have that multiply by 35 square it to the third power divide by 11 and add the top champion PI. Then take the sum of the second through fifth get the average of them subtract the average of your bottom five in PI and add that to the square root of the total PI of your roster.

    See nothing to it.

    Perfectly applied prestige. Nicely done.

    To the person who disagreed: it's true the first number is an approximation. The continued decimal is ...598969319602[27] repeating. I guess I should have rounded to 230 instead of 229. That's a bit nit-picky, but I wouldn't want to degrade the mathematical accuracy of the forums. It is important that we have these quantitative watch dogs monitoring the computational fidelity of posts. Keep up the good work.

    I think you forgot to integrate over the bounds of your upper and lower prestige limits. Reason I say this is because if it doesn’t involve calculus then it’s most likely too simple a calculation and could easily be figured out by the player base.

    I'm a little confused, because I got two numbers. Is prestige a vector?
  • Mathking13Mathking13 Posts: 782 ★★★
    Basically, prestige is the average of your top 5 Pl champs when you don't have any masteries active. So if, when you took all your masteries off, your top 5 champions had 5000, 5100, 5200, 5300 and 5400 Power Index, your prestige would be the average of that, which is 5200. That's your personal account's prestige. And it isn't affected by masteries; it's all about the champions you rank up.
    Then your alliance's prestige, as far as I understand it, is calculated by averaging the account prestige of the member with the highest prestige, and the one with the lowest prestige. So if your alliance had members between 4500 and 5500 prestige, your Alliance's prestige would be 5000. This isn't impacted by the prestige of the people between those two extremes. Alliance Prestige impacts the difficulty of fights in Alliance Quest, which, in turn, impacts the amount of points you get from every fight. I have a feeling that it MIGHT have some impact on AW, but I don't know for sure...

    I thought alliance prestige was the average of all 30 members. Just take a look at the AQ menu on day 1, it will show your alliance's natural prestige. Then, for each BG that kills the boss on each day of AQ, your prestige for the week goes up. Until day 5, which is why the rating of the defenders goes up, which in turn increases the amount of points you score, which leads to greater rewards. It then resets back to your natural prestige again on day 1 of the next cycle.
    For individual prestige..Discord, Line and other apps that alliances commonly use have calculators built in.
  • RunamokUSARunamokUSA Posts: 270 ★★
    Ok, maybe a strange question....where do you find this number? Sounds like it is not you total base hero rating so I am honestly not sure here this number is found?

    You can't find the number easily in the game. If you drop all your masteries and have no active boosts, just add the PI of your top 5 champs and divide by 5. Otherwise there are several prestige calculators you can use by plugging in your top 5 champs plus rank level and signature level.

    Five years into the game and we’re still having to use outside sources for prestige calculation. The game has it calculated for our AQ purposes, it still boggles my mind why prestige isn’t easily viewed on our profile. Way past time to be honest.

    Well, you are a very low level alliance that’s just starting out the game & doing Map 1 with 2-stars, I don’t think prestige helps much. For most it does though.
