To get a Highscore in Thronefall we must understand how the game calculates the points we earned while defending our Kingdom. The formula to calculate this is:
Base Score + Gold Bonus + Mutator Bonus = High Score.
But there is a little more to it that may cause some confusion. Let’s look at a screenshot to better explain how it works.
The math behind your HighScore
After each victory you will be crowned KING, but most importantly you will get the results screen that tally up our score and XP earned.
The math behind Base Score is how well you defended your Kingdom after each individual wave. If you cleared waves quickly and kept all your units and buildings alive, you will receive the highest possible score.
Most people just spend all their Gold, right? Obviously, I’m trying to max out my Mills and Fields as early as possible. But, if you didn’t need to spend Gold in the later waves, it’s actually better to hold on to it.
Thronefall give players Bonus Points for excess gold. You will get 10 Points for each piece of Gold we keep.
Various perks like Treasure Hunter directly contribute to player’s score.
Mutator Bonus points are awarded after applying all the previous calculations.
e.g: (Base Score + Gold Bonus) * Bonus Score = Mutator Bonus.
As an actual example, (5000 + 1000) * 1.99 = 11940
The total score is the combination of all the other Scores combined. See the first paragraph in this post.
