After some discussion from my other thread on "how to calculate health regen", I think we should urge Glee to change the Health Regen display since the current one does not make any sense.

Here is the method to calculate a useful health regen display value:

First, find out the exact faction bonus:
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 1 = 0.9500
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 2 = 0.9025
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 3 = 0.8574
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 4 = 0.8145
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 5 = 0.7738
5% Health Regen Bonus Level 6 = 0.7351

Second, find out your total bonus by multiply each unit's bonus to the above number:
For me is: 0.7351 (faction) x 0.7 (P-91 Pounder) x 0.8 (Bridge Jumper) = 0.4117

Third, calculate the time needed for one free WD battle hit:
25 x 0.4117 = 10.29 min (10 min 17sec)

And for 2 additional hits on boss:
26 x 0.4117 = 10.70 min (10 min 42sec)

Glee should change the Health Regen display to reflect this convenient number (in my case it is 0.41).

I think the best way to display health regen is a number in the range of 0 - 100, with 0 meaning no bonus and 100 meaning no time needed for refill (in theory it is not possible).

In my case, the Health Regen Display should be: 100 - 0.41x100 = 59

This number means that I have a 59% reduction for my health regeneration time.

To put it simple, if someone only has a Bridge Jumper (20% reduction), then the Health Regen display should be 100 - 0.80 x 100 = 20, reflecting the 20% time reduction.

If there is anything wrong with my calculation, please let me know. Otherwise, please support this new way of displaying the Health Regen bonus in your profile.

Thanks!

Correct !

I don't make a fuss over what the profile screen displays. It's garbage to me. I calculate my bonus and in real time situations if it's within a few seconds, I know it's working. I'll see if the Bridge Jumper is working when battle starts. If I have the same time as I did in Egypt. I'm gonna be pissed!

I too a picture of my stats just before I got my Bridge Jumper to see the boost I got. I was thinking it was going to be huge adding 20 more percent Health Regen.
I checked after i got it and my boost turned to Negative one. Negative 1, -1, Minus 1. WTF? What the Bridge Jumper happened? I guess someone failed seventh grade math in the programming department.

Arizona..... I am sure there will be no faster Health Regen during the China Event because of this unit. think about it. How would you explain less money spent on Gold during an event to your boss.

i had already 2 health regen units in Egypt, also the same amount of fraction boost, after this event its 3 units but i see also no differenxe to Egypt.

I know about the display issue bug so I calculated myself
Health regen time = (1 - 0.26) x (1 - 0.30) x (1 - 0.20) x (1 - 0.20) = 0,3315

could it be that if you own an DEADLY BRIDGE JUMPER and a ELITE BRIDGE JUMPER that only one of them works ???

anyone else this setup ?

well, need to send a ticket

Yup I'm showing -1 as well but I'm frozen out like half my faction just now.

Calculation checks out even if profile is misleading. The regen boosts work
