re: Castle Clash: iOS/Droid Tigerdroppins Guild... iOS boss fight Sunday at 9 - Korkstand
[quote]You could throw in a level 1 hero in arena on defense for a few days, let your rank drop really low, then do some time trials, one hero at a time up an open lane.[/quote] I already have most of the info I need. The arena is roughly 2800 units long, and dividing by each unit's speed gives the...

I've seen those charts, and I have a copy of the spreadsheet calculator with all the numbers. But it doesn't do a couple of things that I think are necessary: 1. It doesn't account for move speed (it just says to "interpret the shrine index with caution" due to differences in move speed) 2. It...

[quote]To be fair, they put almost all of their money back into the company. Which, as I said in my post before, is fine for a growing company, but at 20 years old you kinda wanna see some profits.

Do you guys think it would be useful to have a tool where you enter all your heroes' levels, skills and talents and it would chart out the best team as far as DPS? Couldn't really simulate a head-on fight, but maybe it would be helpful for taking an open lane in arena? There are a lot of conside...

It's probably better to just install fresh copies of Windows and all your apps, then copy just your data from the old drive via external USB enclosure. Assuming "crashed" means it doesn't boot, then it's likely that any attempt to make an exact copy will result in corrupted files on the new driv...
