Hello all. I see there is an influx of new and returning players who face a steep learning curve. I am posting in this thread to even the playing field as much as I can. The following are useful tools for the game.

Kill Calculator:
http://hardar.free.fr/aaw/killcalc.php
Use “Other” for all races[up]

Construction assistant / Invasion calculator:
http://geuze.name/orkfia/
Using this you can copy/paste Recon, Sneak, and Intercept into the box provided and it will load it automatically

Magic and Thievery Successrate Calculators:
Magic: http://orkfia.asdoljg.se/magic.html
Thievery: http://orkfia.asdoljg.se/thievery.html

I started a calc 2 ages ago (I think hardars went down for a short time and we needed one but his has been solid for years) but I haven't kept it updated with new races [:s] If we do end up with more of the formulae accessible on guide it would be easier for community to maintain a tool like this on github/github pages where anyone can contribute/update.

Ok now this is an idea.
Who's in?
I have something to start with (i can host it for demo) but very little time atm.

Sanzo -

Start it up

Smikis -

Building Calculator, probably has bugs.[heart]

Kamecimi -

the tools above appear to be just fine, Nepherius. The calcs for percentages is one of the easier parts of the game... its just the basics. The ticks in time and the differences in races complicate the strats and help to create that steep learning curve... just gotta feel it out and find the formula that works for each race. there's a sense of “chemistry” to each race... a “solution” if you will...

Is it OK with you guys if I share links for your calcs on the facebook page too?

It would be cool if there was a races API as well, so that tools could use the API for any race modifiers and reduce hard coding. Just an idea

Something like this?

It is kind of a mess, but there hasn't really been any reason to improve it. If you have any suggestions I'd be happy to try fixing it.

You're too good max!
