AI War:Handicap Multiplier
What Is A Handicap Multiplier?
A Handicap Multiplier is a special multiplier used for a variety of purpose to compute something specific to a player based on that player's handicap. These can be anywhere in the range of -300% to 300% for each side.
How is it computed?
- If the handicap is 100% (default), the multiplier is 1.
- If the handicap is greater than 100% (bonus), the multiplier is 1 + ((handicap - 100) / 100).
- If the handicap is less than 100% (penalty), the multiplier is 1 - ((100 - handicap) / 325).
Some examples (some values approximate):
One thing to note is that playing with a positive handicap for the human player or a negative handicap for the AI player will make you ineligible to earn achievements for that game.
