Thread: Academy and research times

  1. #1

    Default Academy and research times

    I have been trying to figure out what affects research times but can't seem to put my finger on it. I have a level 7 academy and have a research time of 56 minutes 15 seconds on privateering, however base research time is 1 hour. On another server with a level 2 academy the research time is 1 hour. What's the deal here? Not seeing any buffs that increase research speed, only have the 1 academy...

    The time discount on research is based on the intelligence of the mayor appointed at the time you start the research.

    Appoint your worst intel hero and look at the research time, then appoint your best intel and look at the research time. You will see a difference.

    I do not know the math. But, since an intel hero is not really needed for anything except research, people delete them after research is all done. They are not worth putting much time/effort into leveling. I don't think figuring out the math is even worth the time. A mediocre intel hero still gets the job done sooner than you realize.

    Search google for the few Evony wiki-type sites. Maybe one of them went through the trouble of figuring it out. You can find the real "base time" by removing your mayor and checking the research time when no hero is appointed.

    Yea, that is what I did first but I get mostly evony age 1 info, and none of it really helpful . Came here in the hopes that someone here is better at math than I am :P.

    Waiting for my server to go back up so I can try and figure it out ;D.

    time = hh:mm:ss

    30 intel, privateering lv3 = 03:50:07
    40 intel, privateering lv3 = 03:48:30
    50 intel, privateering lv3 = 03:45:01

    if they don't do it for u, lemme know.. I'll fiddle gear around to get more figures.
