What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
It is counting moves, not turns. In a 35m battle, I had 4 turns but 12 moves, and scored a 99 (35-2=33 * 3=99). Rules state it’s 10 turns.
How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Steps to make it happen again
Play and use a looping team
That has always been confusing to me. But consider, a 4 four match gives you an “extra turn”. Goblins say “Gain an Extra Turn”. I’m not sure what the wording on storms is, I can’t find any in game I think GoW just has a confusing definition of “turn”.
Yeah as far as I can tell, a move is any time you make a match or cast a spell. But a turn to me is everything that happens before the other team gets to move. That’s why I think the wording is misleading.
plus the fact that the official knowledge base article EXPLICITLY says that your turn, then your opponent’s turn is ONE TURN. So if you do some stuff, and then your opponent does some stuff, that is intended to be 1 turn, no matter how much “stuff” happens by each side.
fully agree. it is explicitly mentioned, where in GW it is also explicitly mentioned what a “turn” is: 2. How many turns it takes you to win
By “turns” we mean unique actions (so a goblin who casts his spell, then matches 4 gems, then matches some skulls, has performed 3 actions)
You get bonus points for every action less than 30 that you take… So say you get x% bonus per turn - take 20 turns, and you will receive 10*x% as your bonus
I am experiencing the same thing. I guess they really do copy the code from Guild War, so extra turn can hurt you sometimes.
Although, I think the formula of your point is actually (35*3) - 6 = 105-6 = 99, and both turn and move seem to added as 16 “actions”, thus 6 more from limited “turn”, so 6 Miles panalty
Edit : Nope, you formula of (35-2)*3 = 99 is exactly right. You got 2 reduction because of the extra turn, and it was a bug as stated by Kafka below.
I was mistaken, sorry the for the misinformation…
I thought the whole event was bugged because of this impossible achievement.
Right now, it take around 170 battles to get 20K Miles, and that’s 2x Tier 7 or around 2.5K gems. Most player won’t buy that much unless they’re chasing for leaderboard or helping the guild get the final Books.
So, unless it can be combined from different Journey, it won’t be possible for most of us.
I can spend the gems to get it anyway, but Journey is too boring, so I rather not.
