If you're interested in making a forge point profit on great buildings in Forge of Empires, then this is the calculator for you!
This calculator will tell you how many forge points you need to add to a great building to lock your position and guarantee that position's forge point reward when the great building is leveled, and if you'll generate a forge point profit or loss.
How To Use This Calculator
Forge points are valuable tokens in Forge of Empires, so the more you have, the more you can advance. One method to acquire forge points is by investing in other players' great buildings. However, if you don't invest smartly, you may end up losing forge points when the great building you invested in is leveled.
To know if a forge point investment in another player's great building is good or bad, simply add 4 pieces of information to the calculator below:
- The total forge points needed to level the great building.
- The total forge points currently contributed to the great building.
- The reward of the position you want to be in.
- The current forge points contributed by the player in the position you want to be in.
Once you add these 4 pieces of information and click "calculate", your results will tell you whether investing in this great building for the position you want is a good or bad investment.
If it's a bad investment, don't invest any forge points into this great building for this position. If it's a good investment, you'll be given a magic number. The magic number is the amount of forge points you should invest in the great building right now to get the forge point profit when this great building is leveled.
The magic number is called "magic" because it's the number of forge points that will allow you to gain a forge point profit and lock in your position for this great building (i.e., no one will be able to pass you and you'll secure your reward for the position you invested in).
How This Calculator Works
Let's say you come across this Temple of Relics great building. To level this great building, it needs 420 forge points. 354 forge points have already been contributed, which means only 66 forge points can be added to this great building.
420 - 354 = 66
The current player in first place has contributed 5 forge points to this great building, with a reward of 45 forge points. You want to take over the first place position and lock in the 45 forge point reward for yourself so no other players can pass you.
Using the calculator at the top, you punch in the following information:
- The total forge points needed to level the great building: 420
- The total forge points currently contributed to the great building: 354
- The reward of the position you want to be in: 45
- The current forge points contributed by the player in the position you want to be in: 5
After hitting calculate, your results show that investing in this great building is good to make a forge point profit. Your results show you a magic number of 36 with a forge point profit of 9.
You now add 36 forge points to this great building.
By adding the 36 forge points to this great building, you added the minimum forge points needed to take first place while maximizing and guaranteeing your 9 forge point profit when this great building is leveled.
To check the calculator, the 36 forge points you added to this great building reduces the amount of forge points that can be added to this great building to 30. This means that the maximum amount of forge points the player we knocked to second place can now add is 30, which if they did, would bring their total forge point contribution for this great building to 35.
Their 35 forge points level this great building, but is still less than our 36 forge points. This means we remained in and took first place, are awarded 45 forge points, and with 36 forge points spent, take home a 9 forge point profit.
