Previously, I asked about how Explore teams were generated. This was partially because I wanted to know and partially because I wanted to write a tool to answer a different question: When exploring for event gems, which kingdom has the highest yield?
So, how does it work?
I wrote a tool that, for each kingdom, does several thousand iterations of this algorithm:
- Choose a challenge or quest team from the kingdom’s roster.
- Fill in any empty slots with a random troop from the kingdom.
- Choose one troop from the event chest lineup and replace a troop on the team with it.
The end result is more or less an average for each color per combat in that kingdom. I’m missing the “substitute an owned mythic” rule, but I’d have to ask you to give me your invite code per-account to make that work and I don’t want to deal with that. It turns out event chests and mythics only have a tiny impact on the results and don’t change the relative order anyway.
I’ve run it for the past few weeks, but was waiting on a week where you could get the gems from Explore matches to unveil it. I want to add some more features, like making the table sortable, but that takes effort and it’s the holidays right now
So, this week gives you event gems for red enemies, and Grosh-Nak is consistently the kingdom with the highest distribution of red enemies. No other kingdom comes close, I don’t think there’s a useful 2nd choice.
