This is no joke!
The competition is about 10M Gold and YOU can WIN 10M Gold! Very Happy
Here's how it goes: My Sub-City is currently ranked first but I don't want to attract too much attention, so I'll raise my tax rate and leave top 10.
I will raise my tax rate to 100.
Exactly at midnight tomorrow night (GMT time, the night between saturday and sunday) I will remove all gold from my sub, and I'll let the gold flow in until it reaches 10M.

Now what is the competition about?
You have to guess how long it'll take for me to get 10M gold.
If someone can guess the time within a 1 hour margin, they will get the 10M!
If not, the closest person gets 5M and the other 5M goes to alliance donations.
Mail your guesses to me (ingame only!) to join the competition.

I should probably provide this information:
Current pop is 165k and tax is stable at 0.
Still building 2 villages which will finish in 1 hour and 30 minutes, I'll update the exact population then.

Looks like a good contest, but I have some questions.
  • What is your alchemy skill's level in that sub?
  • Do you have any legends in the sub eating up gold?
  • Will you be doing any pacification at all?
  • Will you be using gold-boosting items like tax writs?

I have no university in my sub, therefore my local alchemy skill is 0.
I have no legend pavilion in my sub, therefore I have no legends present in my sub.
I will pacify at random times.
I will not use boosts.
If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask Smile

Why make your sub drop out? Once the competition's over, you'll be back up to the top 10 at some point.

Also, are you sure your loyalty won't hit 0 and dissent 100 before 10M?

On top of that, which sort of pacification? Using up gold would mess the time up.

After the competition I'll put the tax at 50 or something, still have to calculate best gold/hour tax, so I won't be in top 10.
Loyalty *could* hit 0 at some point, but I will pacify enough to keep the gold coming.
I will mostly use Relief pacification, but if I use Prayer, I will send the gold from my other city to pay for it.

I have some interesting calculations to share.

Minimum contest time
Assuming Fluffy keeps loyalty at 100% (which is highly unrealistic), the quickest time to get the gold is gold goal / population hours = 10,000,000 / 166,090 hours = 60 hours, 12 minutes, and 30 seconds.

Likely contest time
Assuming that Fluffy Robin is a normal human/bird and sleeps somewhere around 8 hours each night, loyalty and population will always fall to near zero overnight. This means that the average population will probably be about a third or a quarter of the start, so the 10M gold will take maybe 3.5 times longer than the quickest possible. Thus, it will probably take about min time * 3.5 = about 210 hours. I guessed 200 hours.

Maximum contest time
Because loyalty and population would drop to zero well before 10M gold is reached, there is no maximum time.

Maximum income after the contest
50% tax gives the best gold/hour when you're not around to pacify every hour or so. If you're after the most gold, I suggest you replace one of your villages with a level 20 university, since the 40% tax boost adds so much more than 6270 people. This way your income will be (1+0.02*alchemy level) * level 20 village pop * number of villages * tax rate / 100 * loyalty / 100 = 1.4 * 6270 * 27 * (50/100) * (50/100) = 59,251.5 gold / hour.

Those calculations are indeed VERY interesting!
Especially the after-contest stuff is very useful!
I will take your advice and build a university as soon as I've reached 10M gold Smile

Good luck!

Let's have a list of people who have sent their guess.
That way you'll be able to see how well you're doing in the competition.

1 hour: Strikers132
10 hours: 7off
15 hours 30 minutes: NE XUS DUCK
89 hours 43 minutes 4.2 seconds: esuM (I'll give you 1000M if this is exact)
99 hours: Mighty Alwyn
200 hours: Mark Gyver

If I haven't written down your guess, please check your outbox, screenshot the message with your guess and post it here.

It's over!!!
It took me 207 hours to get 10M gold.
Mark Gyver made a very accurate guess at this and therefore, he will be rewarded 10M gold!
Congratulations!

I was off by 7 hours, clearly not within a 1-hour margin. Therefore, I should only get 5M and the other 5M goes to alliance donations.

As you wish, Mark.
In my opinion, you deserve the extra 5m for your accuracy and your effort, but if you want it to be donated to the alliance, so be it Smile
