29 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Why do we all have 9 Points worth while Russia has 16 point worth
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Sum of Squares
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: I know but why does Russia have the Mow
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: 16/(16+6*9)*70
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: i know but why do we have 9
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Because he owns 1 more SC at the moment. It's the way SOS works, check the FAQ for more info if you like
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: 9/(16+6*9)*70=9
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: 70 points divided by 22 supply centers overall taken times supply centers taken by nation.
Russia (4 centers): 70/22*4 = 12.72
everybody else (3 centers): 70/22*3 = 9.54
since you cant give 0.54 points, the six parties with 3 supply centers get 9 points, leaving 70-(6*9)=16 for Russia.
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: NO
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Wow did you acctually do the math right now
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: It's simple: (the number of SCs you own squared/sum of all players' SCs squared)*total point available = your share of points.
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: ok ok i get it
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: #mathematics
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Yea and i am in Math Class right now
30 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Thanks for the clarification, I stand corrected.
And yes, we actually did the math right now, it wasnt that hard.
