GoW Preset Stats Are Wrong, Here’s Why…

Your Core Set Stats are Lying to YOU!

You are told about a DOMINATING core set promising insane stats.  You craft it, but when you get the final product it's not even close to what's promised.  You think, "What the heck?!  They lied to me!" It might not have been their fault though. Here's why.  Understanding Preset stats is trickier than you think... The stats shown on Presets are not even close to what you will actually have at time of battle.  Any Set Bonuses provided by the set will not appear in the Preset stats feature. It's your current Set Bonus that appears in the Preset stats page. Therefore, it is possible to artificially inflate the stats of a Preset of a custom core recipe. It's known as "stats padding", and some players have been doing it for a long time... I'll explain further.

Set Bonuses

A Set Bonus is applied to your boosts when you have either 5 of 7 pieces of a set such as Frostlord.

Frostlord's SetStats Padding

In this case the Set Bonus we are most concerned with is Defense.  According to my Set Details, I receive 200% Troop Defense from a 7 piece Set Bonus. However, that 200% Troop Defense is a applied to my Hermes Preset shown below. The Defense of my Hermes set in my Presets while wearing my full Frostlord's Set is 1277%.

But when I break the Frostlord Set Bonus and look at the stats of my Hermes set, the Troop Defense has dropped 200%, to 1077%.

It just so happens that 200% is the Set Bonus from Frostlord’s Set Bonus. So let's say I was wearing Ares, or Poseidon.  The Set Bonuses of those sets are HUGE.  An old Four Horsemen Set Bonus could be over 800% additional Troop Attack, making that custom core recipe look pretty amazing when it really isn't!

Implications of Stats Padding

In Game of War, it is important to know the exact statistic of a gear set in many situations.   In the case of the heroless rally, a player will want to know that they have the perfect amount of debuff to zero out the health, defense, and other stats in order for that that 200 billion heroless player to burn.  However, if they craft a custom core set that hasn’t been tested before and place it in their Presets, they may get a false reading on their stats if a gear set with a Set Bonus such as Defense Debuff is currently equipped.   They may think they have enough Defense Debuff to zero out the player’s Defense to cause a burn but when they actually equip the custom core set it has less than the desired Defense Debuff because they are no longer receiving the Set Bonus from the previously equipped gear set.  Clear as mud right?

Other Factors Affecting Preset Stats

Many players complain about not achieving the results of the recipe creator.  Either because they don't understand how Preset stats work or the creator is guilty of stats padding.  True, if a player wishes to deceive the custom core community he can easily do so by showing the stats of some other Core Set altogether and maybe running a boost or two while he’s at it. But, for the most part I believe players are taking screenshots while unintentionally boosting the stats as a result of a Set Bonus from currently equipped gear such as Full Imperial Dragon, Shogun's or Frostlord's.  As mentioned above, those Set Bonus stats are added to your Preset Stats but won't be included when you actually equip the Preset.  

A Note About Boosts and Altar Skills

Here is an Interesting side note.  While I was writing this article I tested whether Troop Boosts boosted my Preset stats.  They did. Initially my Troop Defense in Preset was 3158%.  stats padding

I then added a 20% Defense Boost and should receive 3178% if my education wasn’t a complete fraud.  

stats padding

However, I am now at 3194%.  A difference of 36%.  For those of us who aren’t math geniuses, I’ve calculated the increase and it comes to exactly 80%.  Where could this additional 80% have come from? Here's the culprit: sttas padding


Eureka!  Game of War makes mathematical sense again! So, Boosts and Altar Hero Skills appear in your Preset stats.  In my case Defense Boost receives an 80% increase.  Adding to the argument that Altar Hero Skills are the most Powerful in the Hero Skill Tree.

Putting It All Together

In the article, The Reign of Kinoichi's Kunai is Over, Blind Eagle explained that his Ares Set was hitting at 7k combined attack with screenshots as proof and dominated Kinoichi's Kunai all Coliseum.  We received much feedback from readers claiming they couldn't quite achieve the same attack results.  What many of these players weren't factoring in was:

  • Attack Boosts: +200%
  • Altar Attack Skills increase to Boosts: +160%
  • Set Bonus of  Ares Set: +250% Cavalry Attack

So, when these above stats are added to the Preset Stats given for our Ares Set we've added some 610% Combined Troop Attack.

Preset Stats Fix

Perhaps Game of War can fix this to add the appropriate Set Bonuses from the equipment in the Preset.  When a friend gives you their Preset Stats, quiz them if they have a Set Bonus from currently equipped gear.  They could be Stats Padding and not even be aware of it. Try it out yourself. Here's a fun exercise.  The next time you are burning a Poseidon Set, take a screenshot of a Zeus or Ares Preset and show it to us!  The stats should be pretty epic! Darkthorne

    With the whole thing that seems to be developing within this particular subject matter, all your opinions happen to be very refreshing. However, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it exciting none the less. It seems to everyone that your remarks are not entirely rationalized and in fact you are your self not really thoroughly certain of the argument. In any case I did appreciate reading through it.
